I just wanted to say I am not dead, but having a bit of a 'mare wrapping up my life in London and prepping for my new start in Nottingham. Currently the 'mare is taking the form of a comedy 25-page lease that my prospective landlord obviously commissioned Machiavelli to draft. Hey ho!
I am moving in mid March, so will post occasionally until then. Hopefully I'll be back to full throttle by the end of March.
To keep you entertained here's a cute little interactive inforgraphic which helps with the sizing madness we girls face when we go shopping. There is such a disparity in shops' sizing that there the only solution is to take armfuls of sizes into the changing room to test-fit. This site attempts to make life easier (and point out the absurdity of the situation) by plotting your actual stats against the benchmarks for each chain. Yay!
