Helen Explains It All

Hello? Hello? Is there anyone still out there?

Yes, I am the world's worst blogger. Ten days without a post. Shocking. As I said a few posts back, I just really haven't got into the swing of blogging this year. Work is so so busy and, by the time I get home, I just want to get in the bath, catch up with house things and then sleep. But, I do love my little corner of the blogging world so much and I really do need to make an effort to get back into the habit of writing. And of taking more photographs. My 365, predictably, ground to a halt after about ten days. I just haven't been taking photographs. Of anything. Which is really unlike me and something I intend to rectify post haste.

This isn't an outfit post, obviously, but those boots, those tights, the cardigan and the skirt are my four big loves at the moment. Double polka dots for the win. Prepare to see a lot of them (if I ever start doing outfit posts again!) as I'm currently on a total spending ban. I was already going to do it but then Gemma posted about 'Frugal February' and it spurred me on even more. So I won't be buying any new clothes, any new make up, any shoes or any jewellery for the whole of February. In addition, I'm laying off the drink (after the amount of wine I unintentionally drank last night it's very necessary), stepping up my running and getting back on the healthy eating bandwagon. I've been naughty recently and need to get back to my willpower ways!

Oh, and the post title? A nod to the wonder that was 'Clarissa Explains It All'. If you've never heard of it then I'm just not sure we can be friends. Soz.

So, how've you been?

Boots - Dune
Tights - ASOS
Skirt - H&M
Cardigan - ASOS

'Clarissa Explains It All' - those were the days!

Wish I could be brave enough to do the double polka dot thing - I love it on other people (like you), but when I try I feel silly & change. Boo to me & my self-doubting ways. I so want to embrace the double polka dots!

Best of luck with your no spending challenge.. Looking forward to hearing how it's going :)

Clarissa Explains It All is amazing. Garry and I frequently sing the theme song at top volume in the car.

Frugal February? I should do a project like that, but I don't think I'd be able to. Genuinely, good luck.

You're not the world's worst blogger at ALL. You're having time to yourself, nothing wrong with that.

I used to watch C.E.A too. In the opening title she would write the words in pink on the screen with her finger. The same actress played a witch in Sabrina.

Them were the days 'sighs nostalgically'.

Glad to see you posting again! I love the tights...very cute. Hope all is well, and yes 'Clarissa' and old Nickelodeon was the best :-)

Hello Bee said...

I missed you! And looking very swish in the polka dots cutie.

Ahhh loved Clarissa so much (and now have the theme tune in my head) I wish I could go back to me aged 10 and OBSESSED with it, and tell me I would be working at Nickelodeon as a grown up. Sometimes I still have to pinch myself! I like watching old Clarissa eps on youtube as 'research'! x

I am on a self imposed 'fugal february' too.
I somehow have nothing in my account this month, and a lot i have to do! Ebay selling will be my friend this month.
