In which my Christmas jumper is totally math

Ok, there's no denying I pretty much abandoned blogging in the Autumn. I kept wanting to do it, to read up on everyone, but I didn't feel motivated by it. I was working really hard and when I came in all I wanted to do was relax away from a computer. Well sort of. I spent a lot of time playing this game:

Well actually, Mass Effect 1, and I played a Femme version of Shepherd who looked more like Pousee from Orange is the New Black than either of the usual depictions of her.

Oh and then a lot of evenings were spent on these two incredible shows: Avatar: the Last Airbender and Avatar: The Legend of Korra. I find it hard to explain how amazing these two shows are, or how much they mean to me. 

I can say that they have incredible female characters who are able to achieve everything their male counter-parts are. They are amazing for who they are, as people. There's also so much development of everyone, there's political commentary and interesting family relationships. It has such fantastic moments that you can't believe they are doing them in a kid's show and at the same time it never feels like they are pushing an agenda. It's just all perfect storytelling.

In Legend of Korra I love that they were like 'ok we'll give a female led fantasy show a go' and then didn't just stick with Korra, they made the most wonderful and varied women and girls throughout the whole show. With grandmas and little girls who are all brilliant. Watching 4 seasons of 2 shows meant a lot of evenings sitting with hot chocolates under the blanket, thinking about bending over blogging.

But I wanted to tip my toes back in to giving an outfit post ago, with yet another bit of cartoon love. I brought this jumper after thinking about it for a good month. Then I finally caved in and made an hour and half trip to buy it - getting the very last one in the shop!

I don't know if you can tell but it's all about Adventure Time - another kid's cartoon I'm a fan of. I'd tell you I watch adult shows too, but to be honest since Orphan Black finished I'm all about the cartoons.

Sorry the photos aren't great but I think we were a little out of practice. Also it was really windy!
We had to keep pausing in between to wait for clouds and wind to be in the right position.

So that's a little of what I've been up to. Now to catch up on all the blogs!
Hope you have a lovely Christmas.


  1. Hahaha, oh man, Mass Effect can wreck lives I tell you! One time I played through the whole three and didn't take a shower for weeks :D I love your Shepard, she's so hot. I can't get my female Shepard to look pretty, she always ends up looking super weird O_O
    I love the sweater, you're so cute, the hair is rad as always! ^^

  2. Your hair is getting so long! I love how edgy it looks this length also what a beautiful sweater!
