  1. Busy week! But I'm trying to get over the fact that you've never been to a pool party before!!

  2. Sounds like a busy week Charlotte, love the bikini and I have to ask you this=Do Americans really have HUGE ben and jerry tubs or are they really like the ones we have in the UK? 

  3. Sounds like a great week. I love your new purse!

    Eilidh xo

  4. Sounds like a lovely week, Charlotte! Well, except for the toilet thing of course :/ That salad looks delicious, how did you make it? And oh my, your graduation dress! Gorgeous! x

  5. Kitty is super cute.. I love it's colours! Also your pastel sandals are purrrrfect, and cannot wait to see your Jones and Jones parcel :)
    Hope you're having a lovely time xx

  6. What  a lovely week!
    Kitten looks adorable- jealousof your pool party I imagine they are crazy fun!
    Did you defer your graduation because you're in NJ? Just wondering as I might have to do the same :)
    Glad you are having a much better time!

  7. I love the Harry Potter wand/penis game!


  8. Not a lot of pools in England! Far too cold! x

  9. So far, I've only seen the 1 pint ones which I think are the same! I'll keep my eye out for you! x

  10. I know I tweeted you about this but I thought I had better respond in case other people want to know! It's inspired by a salad at Pizza Luce, a pizza chain in Minnesota, where I used to live. My version is cashews, craisins and goat's cheese with italian dressing, theirs is honeyed pecans with Gorgonzola and spinach. x

  11. Yep, my graduation should be this week, but I'm doing it in December. I'm really glad I found out about deferment because I didn't want to miss out on either experience! Because I had a year abroad, a lot of my friends graduated last year, and so I already missed out on graduating with my closest friends! Quite a few people on my course (American studies, not English) are actually deferring because they've gone back to the States too so I won't be the only one in December!
