Tea anyone?


Love and scandal are the best sweetners of tea
-Henry Fielding



Today's quote has relevance in two ways;

One, I am so excited for the next season of Gossip Girl, 
though somewhat disappointed they've left New York for LA. 
Though I am sure there will be as much scandal as ever!


I am loving the colourful summery looks I've seen from Serena in the next episode, 
I cant wait till summer gets here to try a few
 (Summer's arriving in a couple of months in New Zealand)

~

Secondly this week i tried out Butter London's Tea With The Queen nail polish

Its a neutral colour; tea with a tint of pink, 





I wasn't entirely sure if i liked it at first since it does look slightly rusty 

and off for my skin tone in some artificial lights, 
but natural light has convinced me that it is nice after all.

It does look like it could be particularly nice on my Korean friends skin tone surprisingly enough.



Finally a few pics of an outfit I wore last week. 

It was warming up down here, but it recently got cold again...




This dress reminds me of winter and the type of "ugly" jumper grandmas knit that I love.


Till next time...
