112. Take your time, hurry up

Glasses:  Ebay
Top:  H&M
Necklace:  Urban Outfitters
Shorts:  New Look
Socks:  Boots
Shoes:  New Look

Hello all! Well, it seems I can't stay away for too long and am posting a look already after yesterday's post! Haha But to be honest I wanted to do a look wearing my new geek glasses after recieving them in the post last week from ebay. I don't know why but I just fancied a different look and the glasses seemed to be the thing for me. I like to be different from the crowd but not in an obvious way as I hate drawing attention to myself, so little things like this are perfect for building my confidence and also not looking the same as everyone else.

Anyway, today is just a simple outfit as I'll be doing uni work and reading the Hunger Games all day again, although I have been procrstinating already! I ventured out to get petrol this morning, and no I am not a panic buyer I was literally in the red, and I have never seen so many cars at my local tesco!! It's safe to say I was NOT queueing that long, turned around and went to BP instead where it took me about 5-10mins in total to queue. Have any of you had trouble with getting petrol lately when you actually need it? Some guy next to me was filling up three jerry can's AND his car! Argh, anyway rant over! Time to do some work... Hope you all have a lovely Friday in the sun!

Little Update

Hello beauties! It feels like it's been a while since I last did a post, and to be honest it might stay that way for a little while. Usually I like to blog every day, or atleast every other day, when I have some free time like I do now, however since last night it has become clear that this uni work is not going away, and the longer I leave it the worse it is going to get, and therefore less time to do it in. So I have decided that enough is enough and it is time to crack on!

I will still be blogging, I don't think I could ever leave for too long, but it will be only a few times a week and possibly late at night before I go to bed. I say this but who knows! Blogging is my place to escape from everything. I enjoy editing photo's and scanning other blogs, but I guess for now I will have to control my addiction (ha!), atleast until I get on top of things anyway. There isn't left long at uni anyway so then I will be able to blog to my hearts content!

Anywhoo, I have been taking some photo's over the last couple of days and thought I would share them with you. In between doing uni work I have been sitting in the garden and getting deeper and deeper into the Hunger Games. I have to say, I am hooked! Is anyone else reading the books? I know a lot of you have already and I've heard nothing but good things!!

1. Chapter 7 of the Hunger Games - 2. Playsuit Print - 3. Beautiful Sunshine - 4. Chapter 9 of the Hunger Games - 5. Indie and uni work - 6. The Hunger Games Part 2 - 7. Uni work - 8. 'K' Ring (Urban Outfitters)

Happy Thursday!

111. Weather changes moods

Cardigan:  Primark
Top:  AX Paris (via New Look)
Shorts:  New Look
Bag:  Ruby (via New Look)
Shoes:  New Look

Hello lovelies! This is what I wore today. I've put up both of the edits in my post today as I wasn't sure which one was better. I've put the first one on lookbook anyway, but I do like the second one too. The majority of my outfit is from New Look as I had work in the morning, but this afternoon me and my boyfriend took my dog, Josh, out for a walk along the beach and around Victoria Country Park :)

I bought this top last weekend from the concessions range at work. It was the only one left and in a size 8 so I figured it was meant to be, right? It was £13.00 full price (which is good in itself) but I get 25% off usually and because it has a mark on the back I got a further 10% off! I was extremely happy to say the least!

Anyway, I thought I'd add a couple of photo's from today. Hope you've all had a good day!

110. Everybody wants to be loved

Scarf:  Vintage
Top:  New Look
Skirt:  DIY/Self Made
Belt:  Vintage
Shoes:  Primark
Glasses:  Ebay

This is what I wore on this beautiful day! I booked the weekend off work so I've been relaxing and chilling in the garden all weekend reading The Hunger Games. I also went to see the film on Friday and it is pretty good! Kept me on my toes for sure! Have any of you seen it yet? I'd say it's worth seeing :)

Anyway, I wanted to go for a girly look today and I just sort of put this together. The skirt I always love to wear with this scarf in my hair and the lace top I found hiding in my wardrobe. I bought it as a leotard from New Look last year and just cut the bottom off so that it became a top, which I prefer. And the shoes are bought from Primark the other day. They are so cute and will go with anything! I also had to add the last full length photo up of me and my cat, Oscar, he is just so cute, but unfortunately really old, bless him. Lastly, I recieved my new geek glasses in the post yesterday so thought I'd take a pic :)

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend soaking up the sun! I also went to my Nan and Grandad's 50th Anniversary meal last night which was really lovely. 50 years of being married! I hope that one day I reach even half of that with someone :)

Famous Frocks

Evening all! I went shopping with a friend today and purchased the most amazing book from Urban Outfitters. It's a book containing all of the fashion icons from Bette Davis to Twiggy to Madonna, and that's not even the best bit! It holds dress patterns for each of the icons dresses, so you can make the dresses yourself!! Ahh, for £20 this completely made my day! I cannot wait to start making some dresses! Here's a few pictures I took from the book, they have beautiful illustrations.

109. I'll miss you forever

Top:  Greece
Skirt:  DIY/Self Made
Shoes:  New Look

Hello beauties! This is what I wore today. I really wanted a change of background as the brick wall is getting a bit boring, however there isn't anywhere in my house where I can take a decent photo. So I travelled up to my boyfriend's and he took these photo's for me in Farnham. Hope you like them! Sorry for the quick post but I'm just on my out, hope you've all had a good Wednesday!

Make It Mine Monday - On Tuesday..

Hello lovelies! I missed posting a 'Make it Mine' yesterday as I was visiting my Mum for Mothers Day, so I thought I would do it today instead. I have been scanning through the Topshop website as my 21st is next month so I've been looking for dresses and they have so many lovely dresses in! Here are literally just a few of the beautiful dresses in store:





And last, but not least, my ultimate favourite and possible winner for my 21st birthday...


 It is £80, however seeing as it's my 21st I am very tempted to get it. I'll have to try it on first though and see what it looks like but it is just beautiful!

Hope you've all had a lovely Tuesday!
