Data Disruptions

I had originally planned to upload a few other images, but instead my special USB decided to break and entirely ruin that novel idea! Yes, break as in port. stick. in shambles ... how lovely! And, between the countless whispers of, "well, you did back everything up," from what seemed to be everyone in sight, and a brief sobbing session, needless to say it did not matter at that point!

Sure, I had loads of things backed up, however the files that I really wanted were on said USB. Just before the switchover the wires were in tatters. Yes, it was one of those days! But, the day wasn't complete crap, after a good calm down I managed to have a worthy IT guy take a look at it and he miraculously collected what he could from it. Watching him in action was quite like a present day episode of MacGyver, and obviously a very hi-tech version. 

The same feeling you get when you think you've lost your handbag or wallet ... you know, that deep belly of heaviness and stomach dropping sensation, sprinkled with high increased heart beatsthat's how this felt.

Since the only thing I could think of afterward involved a shot of something, I decided to pair that concept with a few fashion items that I've been loving at the moment. I imagine normal programming will resume shortly, but until then enjoy these inspiring gulps of style.

1. A refreshing basil and mint mojito and  Baublebar mint cuff bracelet, 2. Mandy Flats with tassels-Madison Harding and Cranberry Mojitos, 3. Dalmore 18 year old single malt scotch whisky and vintage-inspired drop-waist dress-ASOS, 4. Chained on Love bag-Urbanog and a White Russian. Alternative Probiotics recipe here.

  10. Aw Madison, I'm sorry to hear about your USB :-(. I've been there before, except I didn't have an IT guy to help me save even a little bit. Nonetheless, this post is so cute! I love the mint bangle and snakeskin loafers!

  29. Oh, I know just how you feel, Madison - once, years ago, right at the end of university term, my brother and his friends downloaded a program that wiped our computer hard drive... which meant all of my end of term essays were lost! I was devastated. A miraculous IT guy managed to get most everything back, but the initial shock was pretty awful.


    You managed to get a lovely post together in spite of your set back - I just love that orange dress!
    xox,
    Cee
