Randomness - Does the colour of ones umbrella really matter? I think, yes.

Rain, rain, go away, come again another day. Or not. How about you just don't come at all? No. Scrap that. Please come again because I do understand that our planet Earth does appreciate a good ol' wash every now and then but honestly, while I'm walking to my lecture. Is that really necessary mother nature? She thinks yes. Obviously.

Now this usually would not be a problem, getting rained on that is. And to be completely honest, I can't complain too much because I did have an umbrella stashed away in my Uni bag (along with my readings, Cosmo and Vogue mag, three lip glosses, hand cream, comb, mini mascara...yah it's a big bag). 'So why are you complaining, doll?' I hear you ask. Well, the thing is, a while ago I decided it would be amazeballs to purchase a baby blue umbrella. Turns out that was not a top idea. Every single time I pull this puppy out I think to myself 'gosh Roxy, the colour of this umbrella really doesn't compliment your outfit. Silly, silly girl'. And it's true. Sigh.

So I think it's safe to say that I've learnt my lesson. I will never purchase a coloured umbrella again, unless it is this Burberry one:
Isn't it just gorge?

(just incase you are wondering, nup, my uni budget will not allow the purchase of this baby anytime soon...)

You know what, if I came across an umbrella that was a lovely shade of deep purple, I'd consider buying that too. But only because I wear too much black in winter (something I am working on) and deep purple looks goodo with black, me thinks. For now, I think I'll just invest in a black one. Problem soaked. Wait solved, problem solved. Wow, I'm sorry, that was bad (even for me).

Wouldn't it be great if the rain came only while we are happily snoozin' away, dreaming of summer dayz?

Have you got an annoying/entertaining rain story?
Do you own a fabulous umbrella?

Tash had a great Charlie and Lola umbrella until she lost it. And her flower umbrella that she lost. Needless to say when I see an umbrella that I would normally think about buying for her, I have second thoughts. Haha.
