Back to the real post: My nails! My 14 year sister is a star when it comes to doing my nails! They always look perfect, and dry super quick. Not like when I do it haha! The colours are inspired by my Mario star Nintendo DS pen! Baby Pink and Yellow = hotness:
I love it, hotness! Much better than my nails before. The leopard print is white/gold/black and I think it looks good now. I was not so keen when my sister told me the colourway, but she threatened to not do them at all if I did not listen.

Why I Love Blogging: I love blogging because it is good, honest fun. I can babble away about what I wear, who I am, what I like, what I don't, whinge/moan/groan, fashion, sneakers, doorknocker etc with the people who share my interests. You guys listen (or rather read) which is much appreciated! I can read what people think about the content on LP&L through the comments, which is quite frankly the most fun. I can virtually connect to people of the same interests and vice-versa. I have also made some virtual friends through LP&L (and got to meet one: ahem Emma of All In your Innerspace) and hopefully meet more in my travelling quests. I can express myself clearly through this blog, which is something I find difficult through spoken word! There you go guys!

To all the peeps I didn't tag, sorry dudes! I have a couple more tags that I am going to pace myself for! I will use them in up coming posts!!
I am making up for lost time: long post!
The long anticipated Topshop opening in New York!!! In 12 hours (UK GMT time :-D) the store finally opens its glamous doors, after being postponed since last autumn due to a fire, a flood and planning permission problems etc. What a hassle! I have actually seen the 'Opening Soon' sign outside the NY store twice now, it will finally be open the next time I am in NY. Mr. Topshop (Sir Philip Green) himself has forked out a measly $20 million - $25 million (?!?) to build the best store they have ever built. Are you excited?! I know Topshop is not to everyone's taste, or rather everyone's wallets/purse. There is no doubt that their goods are a tad pricey, even with the weak British Pound. And they literally double the price to $$$ on their website, so a pair of leggings in Topshop London is averagely priced at £18...in New York they will be $36...URM WHAT?!?! They might change these type of pricings though - there is hoping ^_^! Topshop has established themselves in NY - with the help of a few popular bloggers - as a cult Great British brand: which is why all you guys love it so much isn't it?? These bloggers have obviously got a big thank-you through gifts from the latest Topshop S/S 09 collection. This will only further enthuse more hype and frenzy through their blogs and their masses of readers; much to Sir PG's delight and pockets. What would Topshop do without those few bloggers eh?! How long will this hype last though? Will the New Yorker's get bored of Topshop after a while? Will you no longer want to own a Topshop item because it has lost the novelty of being shipped from the Queen's Land of England? Only time will tell!
It might do alright in NY, H&M and other high street store have, so what's stopping TS from trying? Truth be told, I don't really see TS as high street, it's more of the higher end High Street. I hardly shop there myself because forking out 24 quid on a tee (no matter how hot) is not really doing it for my student ass. They have turned themselves around in the last couple of year, I remember hating TS with a passion because of their crappy clothes and the even crappier prices. But they have introduced new themes like "Miami", "Summer Pirate" and a sport one last season (forget the actual name) which are all to my tastes, hence why I despise them less. And their sales really are the best! I'm talking major percentages off, and then Buy 1 Get 1 Free! I remember buying two pairs of pumps (one with a Pucci inspired print!) for £7...good times! If you go early on in the sales, you are will definitely find some good bits. Their 10% student discount also help a little - you can even get 10% of sale items ;-)
I will leave this Topshop NY discussion with my favourite picture of Sir Philip Green. I LOVE IT!!! He looks cute and like he is selling a dress from the market hahahah! Can't you just imagine Sir PG saying "Ahhh, my favvvooorrittee PECE. Youuu Liiikkkkeeee??? Brinngs out ze spakleee in ze eyes no? Make you look like Supermodel, Promiseee! Make you preeeettyy lady, I tell you no lie - swear on my mama grave. I give you gut priceee, no worry!! 15 dollaaarrrssss, the best price promiseee...only you get such gut price! I usually sell for 35 dolllaarrssss but I like you you get gut price!!"
On to M.I.S.S.! My latest piece, Jeremy Scott's SS09 collection is now available on FRUTION! Check out my post for the full story, "FRUITION says Hello to Jeremy Scott's "Let Them Eat Gas""!
My fellow M.I.S.S. crew-ian, D of The Diary of a Broke College Student aka the biggest multi-tasker out there, started of her Girl Crush column with me! I couldn't believe she wrote such sweet words about me ^_^! Read her blog here and read my post here!
That about it for today folks! I won't be posting/reading other blogs as much now because this is a crucial time for assignments :-( ! Stay with us though, I doubt I can stay away for that long :-D !!
