Origin

Hello lovelies! How are you all doing? I have not been up to all that much over the last week because it's been all football, football, football. I'm sure I'm not the only girl who has had their boyfriend or Dad subject them to this all week!

I taught swimming again on Saturday morning and I'd been helping out at the animal shelter earlier on in the week. There was one little kitten that I fell in love with, she was pure white, only 6 weeks old and was the tiniest thing I've ever seen. The poor thing had severe conjunctivitis and was already blind in one eye and it was likely that she couldn't see out of the other either. Despite her ailment though the beautiful kitten still purred like never before when she was held and clung onto me for dear life. I wanted to take her home (but Tony already has 4 cats and 4 dogs at home) . I'm going back to help out again today with Tony's mum, hopefully I'll try and get a shot of her for you guys. It's so sad to see her in that state, but she's the sweetest cat in the world.

We also went out for a couple of meals during the week, my favourite being sushi at a place called Origin. Tony's family and I are all huge sushi lovers, so we go to this restaurant all of the time! We've been three times in the last two weeks! Here's a bit of an outfit of the night from one of the sushi excursions (which included a night out in town afterwards) and also some shots of the yummy food for you to drool over! *Sorry the lighting (and my face) are so weird in some of the photos - my camera and iPhoto just don't get along sometimes...

Lace Shorts: OASAP* // Vest: Topshop // Owl Necklace: Dainty Roses // Earrings: Dainty Roses // Anklet: One Love // Toe Rings: River Island // Nails: Oriflame Natural Bronze




These shorts have a seam all the way up the back that makes your bum look great! :)
How cute are these floral peep toes from Red Herring!
I know the lighting in this is terrible but I had to include this as it's my only one with outfit plus shoes and Momo wanted to get in the photo with me! I haven't had a picture of her on here in a few days so I thought I better ;)

I hope you all had a lovely weekend, especially celebrating Father's Day! We had a big family get together at Tony's uncles. We had some lovely brunch, then hung out by the pool before heading home. Let me know what you've been up to! Happy Monday! ♥

I'd also like to say thank you to the lovely Emma from Kokeshi Beauty who nominated me for the Versatile Blogger award!

    1. Thanks lovely! Unfortunately when I went to the shelter today, the kitten was gone - along with about 8 or so others. I asked what happened to her and was told that her conjunctivitis got worse - I can only assume that she was put down, along with the others too. It's so sad, but at least the poor thing isn't suffering any longer xxxx

    1. Thank you so much for the lovely lovely comment! The house is where I live! Well, it's Tony's house, but I live her more than I live at my own home in the UK, so it's basically mine too!! It's pretty isn't it :P Can't ever say no to sushi :) xxx

  5. The toe rings are amazing! I always find them a bit uncomfortable though, do you not?
    I might try them for my holiday at the end of the month and blog about it :)

    1. Hey Callie, thanks for the lovely comment. The toe rings are so cute and so cheap. It did take me a day or two to get used to them and figure out where on my toe they fitted best - also they're really easy to adjust so it was easy to keep playing with the size and shape around my toes until it didn't feel weird anymore. Now I don't even know they're there! I definitely recommend you give them a go :) xxxx
