Paisley


jumper - tesco // paisley pants - matalan // necklace - new look // rings: triangle- dorothy perkins, thumb rings- river island // black ring and cat ring - topshop

I couldn't wait to wear my paisley trousers so here they are woohoo! I'm not doing much today, all I did was go to tesco and I accidently knocked some chocolate polar bears over which is obviously a good thing to do. 

Anyhow, I have  HUUUGE question to ask you all: what would you think about me doing videos to show you my outfits and stuff that I buy? I have been watching video blogs recently and it's such a good way to show readers what you've bought because sometimes photos don't do the item any justice. I did do a little video to ask you about what you think but it was so out of focus and it's just easier to ask you like this. SO telll me what you think in a comment below please - don't be afraid to say it's a dumb idea, any response is a good response (how corny).

Last of all, could you please have a look at my friend Lauren's blog (notanotherteenblogspot), she has done 2 post so far but you should probably expect lots of exciting make up posts because she is ace at doing make up.

Christmas Wishlist

1. Vivitar 157cm Camera Tripod - Argos 29.99// 2. Charcoal Tank Midi Dress - Topshop - £29.99// 3. Benefit Brow-zings £22.50 // 4. The Great British Bake Off Book - £8-10 // 5. Metal Geo Cuff - Urban Outfitters £14.00 // 6. Floral Devore Kimono - Topshop £45 //7. Vintage Renewal O&O Skater Skirt - Urban Outfitters £35.00
I have only actually asked for numbers 1-4 for christmas and the other 3 things are just things I want. 

1. I really need a tripod for taking decent outfit posts. I have also asked for a light which will let me take decent pictures in my room without them being all orangey. 
2. My sister has already bought me this dress and it's so wonderful, I cannot wait to open it!
3. My Dad is going to a duty free sale thing at the NEC in Birmingham and asked me if I wanted anything for christmas from there and this was at the top of my list. I need a decent eye brow kit!
4. I LOVED the bake off when it was on and it's such a shame that it's finished because masterchef is just not the same! I would love to be able to bake properly so hopefully this will help me!
5. I am really into bracelets at the minute which sucks because I don't have many and I think this would make any outfit look so much better. 
6. After watching this weeks episode of Girls, where Jessa wore her funky blue kimono thing, I really want one! 
7. Tartan is amazing. I have always loved tartan skirts and am in need of a new one and charity shops don't seem to be fulfilling my tartan skirt needs. 

Hopefully I should be posting some outfit posts over the next week so look forward to that!
Have a wonderful weekend!!! x

Baby, it's cold outside


weird hands




Shirt - primark // jeans - primark // coat - primark
so today I am a walking advertisement for primark apparently. This is what I wore to go christmas shopping - yes you read that right christmas shopping!!! I managed to get lots of ace stuff for my friends and my mom and some really cute woodland animal decorations! On top of that christmassyness I also made mince pies and danced around my kitchen to loads of christmas songs (wham! in particular). 

Even though I hate snow/ice/slushyness I LOVE christmas soo much! I like buying presents and wrapping them all nicely and writing cards (the cards that I've got by the way are amazing you can see them here)

woodland animal decorations - wilkinsons £1.50

yummy
is anybody else in a reeeeallly christmassy mood?? xx

They're taking the Hobbit's to Isengard!





(showing the Legolas inspired hair)
Cardigan - Primark // Jumper - tesco // Skirt - charity shop // Crystal necklace - tentative decisions // ring - topshop sale // earrings - topshop (gift from my sister)

This is what I wore to sixth form today and I was quite worried about the looks I would get about the skirt as it may be seen as a tad weird. It turned out that nobody seemed to bothered which hopefully means I can whip out my velvet maxi some time soon (hurrah). Anyhow I got this skirt last week from Age UK for £2.99. It is a million sizes to big and far too long but after a lot of sewing and rolling it up it fits totally fine. As you can tell I also got a card thing for sixth form to show that I am actually a student there - it makes me feel kind of grown up!

As for the hair today, I was inspired by Legolas from Lord of the Rings (hence the title) as I watched all three films yesterday whilst drinking lots of cups of tea and drinking cheesecake - it was a good day!! The only downside is that I cannot stop thinking about Lord of the rings now, I'm even listening to the soundtrack!! dear oh dear!!!

Week in photos #9

Watching the rocky horror picture show for the first time in ages // cute halloween decoration // ready 2 hours early as per usual // OOTD // lonely wait at the bus stop // Frankie's and Benny's // the dress my sister has bought me for christmas from topshop // docs & jeans // bonfire

I've actually had quite a busy week this week! The bonfire last night was very good apart from my falling over (I told you it would happen!). 

I'm not really looking forward to going back to school tomorrow but I guess it's not  long until christmas holidays now!

What to wear to a bonfire party




T-shirt - UO // hoodie - new look // jeans - primark // parka - Dorothy Perkins // scarf - charity shop // hat - primark // mittens - tesco // boots - doc martens

As you may already know I am going to a bonfire party tonight and this is what I'm wearing. I thought that maybe I would share with you the process I went through in my head to decide on what to wear tonight because I am a complete worrier so I had to go through every possible realistic scenario (e.g it peeing it down with rain/snow, me falling over etc.) 

  • I think the main idea for dressing for a bonfire party is warmth as you will be stood outside for ages so hat, scarf, gloves and a big coat are a must. 
  • Wear something you're comfortable in. I know it sounds obvious but you don't want to be having to pull your top/trousers up all the time because you're uncomfortable. 
  •  If you live in the lovely wet UK then you will definitely need boots/wellies/something you don't mind getting muddy. I opted for my purple doc martens because they are fairly old as they were my auntie's and they're already a bit battered. 
  • If you don't get cold easily (or are not clumsy so wont fall over) then dresses and skirts are an option but if like me you're a dope and worried about falling over and flashing your knickers and freezing your ass off then wear jeans. 
  • Now for the gloves - I chose to wear mittens but I can see this going badly and me doing something stupid like dropping my drink but they are cosy so I am willing to risk it!
  • Another thing to consider is the fact that you are going to be near a bonfire, as weird as that sounds, but are you really willing to ruin your favourite coat by making it smell like bonfire? I know you can get them cleaned but sometimes the smell is hard to get rid of! 
  • If you're going to be drinking alcohol then you should probably consider wearing hat/scarves/gloves/jewellery that you don't mind losing because lets face it, there's nothing worse than coming home and realising you've lost your best hat!
I know a lot of it seems obvious but the last thing you want to do is let your outfit choice ruin your night because it's uncomfortable, you've lost something or completely embarrassed yourself in front of everyone. 

I hope this was of some use to you all! xx

Christmas Cardigan - Primark £14 

Bowler Hat- H&M £9.99 // Red tartan scarf - H&M £7.99

Oversized coat (it's actually blue) with leather collar - Primark £30 // Bowling bag -Primark £9

Blue high waisted jeans - Urban Outfitters £10!!!!!!

just a photo of bum appreciation -thank you jeans
(I also got some black skinny jeans from primark but they don't photograph well)
As you can tell I went shopping to Manchester today and got some amazing stuff! I think it's safe to say I am pleased especially the coat, it's beautiful. The only downside of the shopping trip was the heavy downpour of rain which made my foundation run like crazy (note to self- 17 foundation and rain DO NOT MIX). 
Unfortunately tomorrow I have to do a ton of work that I have been putting off - yay history and RE! I have also stupidly left my maths folder in my locker at school. I am such a dope!
