Goodbye 2011

So I guess this is the end of 2011! Everyone always says how they've had a rubbish year and that the next year will be better, but I've actually had a really good year! I actually started up this little blog at the end of 2010, but I feel like it hit off a lot more this year, and eventhough I don't have as many followers as some people I still think I've done pretty well :) I also started my tumblr this year, here, and I also started up my lookbook, here. Looking back it looks asthough I started up quite a few things on the internet to get myself noticed and join the blogging world.

I have enjoyed blogging so much this year, it has really opened me up to new things. I love spending hours just browsing other people's blogs and taking inspiration from them so this is something I will definitely be carrying on. And I thank everyone who has commented and followed this blog, it's the thing that's kept me going, so thank you!

I've thought of a few New Years Resolutions, such as 'starting my uni work as soon as I get it' - that has to be the main one, and it starts tomorrow, despite how hungover I'll be! I think I just need to find my motivation again rather than sitting around waiting for it to come to me. Anyone else get that feeling where they're just willing their motivation to come to them? I have it all the time and I really need to get out of the habbit! Does anyone else have any NYE resolutions yet?

Anyway, my plans for tonight are going to my friends house for a house party. I suppose it's really her parents house party with their friends but she's allowed friends over too, which is good, because they're quite laid back about that sort of thing!

So here it is, my last blog post of 2011, 169 posts later. See you all in 2012! I hope you all have an amazing night whatever you're doing, enjoy it!

87. It takes a little faith to believe in

Blouse:  Max C
Shorts:  New Look
Boots:  New Look

I wasn't too sure about what to wear today so I just put this together and hoped for the best! I didn't know if the two shades of blue would work but I quite like it now that I've seen it in photos. I got this blouse at the NEC Birmingham Clothes show a few weeks back. I love the colour as I don't really own anything navy, and I especially love the double collar and the pocket detail, I just think the white really stands out against the navy. And these beauties on my feet are my new boots which I bought yesterday from New Look. I was looking for some other black wedge boots I'd seen in New Look but they didn't have my size and then I came across these and thought I'd try them. I wasn't too sure about them at first but once I'd put them on I really liked them. I'm hopeing they won't take too long to wear in as I want them to be like every day shoes to add a little height, plus they'll go with anything! They're also Limited Edition and are priced at £59.99 because they are genuine leather. So worth it though, I think.

86. Lost but now I'm found

Jumper:  Charming Magpies
Shorts:  DIY/Self Made
Tights:  NEC Birmingham Clothes Show
Boots:  New Look

Sorry for the slighly darker photo's today. I took them a little later in the day than usual because it was raining all day until about half 3 so I took the opportunity to do them then before it got even darker. I don't think they look too bad, but I do prefer it when I take them in the morning.

Anyway, I'm not very colourful today for some reason but only because I wanted to wear my new vintage jumper which my boyfriend got me for christmas. It's from Charming Magpies, my all time favourite vintage shop (so far!), and it's just so cosy! I've paired it with my formal grey shorts, stripe tights and ankle boots to keep it simple but also tie in the stripes from the jumper with the tights.

I went to IKEA today and finally got some coat hangers for my rail for all my many clothes that don't fit in my wardrobe! So I'm off to finish hanging clothes in a mo! I also got a bracelet today which is a late christmas present from my boyfriend (long story about my tiny wrists!) and some gorgeous wedge boots from New Look which I'll post up tomorrow.

Hope you've all had a good day!

85. Blush

Scarf:  Charity Shop
Dress:  New Look
Belt:  Vintage
Socks:  Topshop

Hello all! So this is what I wore today. I went around my Nan & Grandad's for Boxing Day to see them and my Mum and have another christmas lunch round there. I also got my presents from them and my Mum and my have I been spoilt! My Mum got me a whole load of stuff, most of which I knew about but had forgotten and a couple of other things too. I'll have to photograph everything soon and post it all up because I got some lovely presents this year, including a Kindle, a watch, perfume etc.

I wanted to wear this dress today along with the scarf because I think the colours match really well, along with the belt too, and I shoved my hair up in a bun to keep it out of the way! I also matched the knee-high socks too because they have a burgundy strip along the top and my burgundy boots which I didn't photograph today.

Anyway, I hope you've all had a lovely christmas!

84. Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Hope you've all had a lovely day so far and got everything you wished for! I just skyped my brother who's travelling in Bangkok at the moment so I'm very happy, it pretty much made my christmas seeing as he can't be here.

Anyway, I did take the time to do a little lookbook for you today just because I love this outfit (even if I do say so myself!)

Bow:  Self Made
Blouse:  New Look
Ring:  Reindeer - Greggs cake
Belt:  Vintage
Skirt:  Slef Made
Boots:  New Look

This is what I am wearing today. I managed to take a few cheeky photo's while Dad was cooking dinner! I really like this outfit today because of the christmassy colours, even if they are only subtle. I also painted my nails all christmassy on Friday, plus I'm wearing my reindeer ring too!

Enjoy the rest of your day and eat loads!!

Christmas came early - again!

It's oh so exciting when you recieve a package in the post, even more so when it's the day before christmas! My bracelets from 'lily loves lola' came today and they are just lovely! Just thought I'd do a quick post to share:

I love how delicate they are and the good luck charms that come with them. So simply yet so lovely.

I also had an early christmas with my boyfriend yesterday and got a gorgeous vintage jumper and a bracelet, and some leather gloves and a notebook from his mum! I'm sure I'll post them up soon! In the meantime, have a lovely chirstmas everyone! I hope Santa brings you everything you wished for ;)

P.s - Please, please follow me on bloglovin' if you don't already! It would make my chirstmas :) Thanks xx
