Whoahh stop, wait a minute, Mr Postman...

Not the most thrilling of posts, but this one's mainly about what I received in the post today!

The first item being a copy of the fabulous Rookie magazine...

Rookie is due to be an online magazine (there's a countdown to its launch on the website!) but my fellow blogger and BCU'er Laura was kind enough to send me a free copy ahead of the launch.

Also an aspiring journo like myself, Laura's done so well to land herself the role of Fashion Editor at Rookie.

** Job hunt update- promising stuff for a position as Social Media Assistant for a start-up fashion company (similar to ASOS apparently!) and I also have an interview for a Revolution bar! Not the media dream but it's a job nonetheless.

Anyway, I was really keen to read Laura's fashion pieces because she's an amazing fash writer (she wrote a piece on vintage shopping for me which was printed in Trashion). The magazine contains lots of fashion stuff which was good to see!

You may also notice a rather lovely ring I'm sporting in the second picture; is it an Arty you ask? Of course not!

Excuse the 'doing nothing day' lack of effort that's gone into my appearance today

I call it my 'farty' ring! (fake + Arty, geddit?). It's a pretty good copy to be honest, well worth £15 from eBay.

I decided to get it after seeing one in a post from Kavita's i heart vintage blog. When the YSL ring first hit the scene I scoured eBay (and everywhere else) for a copy- hey, I'm not paying over £100 for a ring that ain't even gold and tries to pass off glass as a real stone! Though it seems that now they've been around a while there are loads of fakies cropping up.

It's all good for a brassic graduate like me!

On that note, something else I'm due to receive in the post is my uni results! My friends who live in Birmingham got theirs today and all got firsts and 2:1s so I'm very proud! Though because I'm back in Yorkshire, I couldn't really justify 'popping in' to Birmingham to collect them so I guess they'll take a few days to arrive. I'll tweet my results as soon as I get them, or if they're worth bragging about I might even mention them in a post ;)
