Me and my Grandma finally went to an exhibition we have been meaning to go for a while, ''The Real Van Gogh: The Artist and His Letters'' at the Royal Academy. We queued for an hour and a half, and we looked around for about forty minutes. It was a lovely exhibition, but obviously vair busy. The exhibition features letters Van Gogh wrote, mainly to his brother Theo, and also a number of his paintings and sketches. My favourite pieces of his work were in the last part of the exhibition, titled 'The Late Landscapes'' as the paintings where very rich in colour, and the way Van Gogh thickly applied the paint with swirling brushstrokes was just amazing to see firsthand.
Anyway, let's talk about the clothes! I went to my local charity shops earlier, and along with the 50p lace top I also picked up a cropped knitted grey vest for 50p, a pale denim shirt for 50p and a H&M polka dot dress for £4. I also couldn't resist buying a pair of polka dot tights from New Look, and I was actually rather surprised to find out that they suited me. I''m the type of girl who wears black tights all year round as I hate my legs, so it's great to have a change.

Yawn, I am oh so tired, and I better be getting on with my college artwork!
