This morning whilst browsing through BBC iPlayer I came across the BBC film Enid, I knew about this film when it first came out but unfortunately never got round to watching it. So this morning that's exactly what I did; now it's not the happiest of films, but it does follow the true life story of Enid Blyton. The good thing about it is that you can't argue that it is very well acted, the main actors being Helena Bonham Carter (playing Enid), Matthew Macfadyen (who played Hugh, Enid's first husband), Claire Rushbrook (who played Dorothy, Enid's friend) and Denis Lawson (who played Enid's second husband Kenneth).

I have to say though that one of the things I enjoyed most about this film was looking at the outfits Helena Bonham Carter got to wear, and here are my favourite outfits from the film:

I love this 1930s dress

I love the colour and pattern of this 1940s blouse

What you do when trying to avoid revision

Ok so I have an exam on Monday and Wednesday, but as I hate revision with a passion I seem to find myself pocrastonating instead, by searching on etsy and other wedsites for my perfect summer outfit or watching episodes of Foyle's War and Time Warp Wives for inspiration.

I already own the overalls all I need now is a new blouse to go with them.

I have also come up with a plan for my summer for where I want to volunteer, what vintage events I want to visit, what I want to make and finally starting an etsy store.

And that is why I can't wait unitl the end of this week, because I get to finally go home and see all my family and friends and it will officially mark the end of my second year at university.

Unitl next time,
