Got this beauty on ebay earlier this week! Cannot wait to wear this with a white shirt, black skirt and black shoes x-D. Its originally from Topshop (obviously) and i've been the lookout on ebay, asos marketplace for absolutely ages!

Remember the yellow coat from my January wishlist? Its now in sale but its not in my size!!!! This always happens. I went shopping with the boy in Lakeside yesterday (bday presents) and saw the coat in a size 14 and 10.... 10 would swamp me, sadly otherwise i would've snapped it up.
The new Forever 21 is lovely, i saw a lovely Darth Vader sweater in there which i might buy with bday money, its around £21 :)

The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, mentions Berkhamsted as the place where the archbishop of York, Edgar aetheling, earl Edwin and earl Morcar, surrendered to William (they probably didn't have any choice):

So was Berkhamsted castle thrown up before or after the men surrendered? Well, before it was held by Robert of Mortain (William's younger half-brother), Domesday Book reveals that the town was held by Ea…
