It is a true testament to how amazing Adele is, that one of my closest girlfriends is now a super fan of her work (yes, SUPER FAN). I have never known this particular friend to love a specific musician or style of music but a couple of weekends ago her super-fan status of Adele was revealed. She had spotted Adele in the “ups and downs” column of one of our local newspapers and investigated her music to see what the fuss was about. She now knows all of the words to Adele’s songs, the back history of each song and has spent hours watching videos of her performances on YouTube. SUPER FAN status achieved. I was first introduced to the music of Adele after listening to her rendition of “Make You Feel My Love” (aka the most beautiful song in the history of the world) and after having her latest album (’21′ for those playing at home) on constant repeat I am close approaching SUPER FAN status myself. Not sure what the fuss is about? Please do yourself a favour and listen to this woman sing:

I was planning on doing a feature on my earring collection (as requested by Claire), but taking into consideration the fact that I threw even more money at ASOS and Shopbop over the past week or so I figured I might as well share my purchases with the world.
(In my defense, every single item I purchased was on sale…) I had been looking for a nice pair of wedge heeled closed toe ankle boots for a while, so when I saw the above pair on ASOS I couldn’t resist. I also had the leopard print scarf saved in my to-buy folder on my bookmarks and lo and behold when I searched for it, it was on sale. Bonus. The top I was up in the air about, but I thought it would be nice & easy to throw on over jeans with flats to wear to the movies or something like that. So into the basket it went. I also broke all of my wardrobe shopping rules and impulse bought some jeggings (don’t judge me) despite them being the absolute wrong style of jeans for my body type. I had to buy something to push me over the $100 mark to qualify for free international shipping, so I also ordered this baggy jumper to wear over the jeggings to save the world the sight of me in jean style leggings.
