Sunday Summary #1

Hello beauties!
I decided a few days ago that I would sit down and write a list of things that I want to change about my blog for the new year, or new posts that I could feature on my blog, to keep it running through my last gruelling months of uni. I came up with writing a 'Sunday Summary' each week to keep you guys informed of what I have been up to throughout the past week and I what I have to look forward to (or maybe not so with deadlines looming) in the next coming week. I have seen a few blogs do this sort of thing and I really enjoy reading them, and seeing as my life is so up in the air at the moment with my 'third year fear' I thought I would share my thoughts and what not with you all. Sound good? Ok, then I'll get started.
This week has of course been Christmas!! I hope you all had a lovely time with your family and friends. I had a lovely time, although unfortunately I had to work Christmas Eve and Boxing Day which meant that I only had one day off throughout the festive days and further meant that I had to split my day between my family as my parents are now separated. I was a bit worried about how it would all pan out spending one half with one parent and the other with my other parent, however I actually had a really lovely day and didn't get upset at all, and I even got to spend the evening with my boyfriend which was the icing on the cake for me. I got some lovely gifts, took some lovely photos and had a real laugh with my family.
After Boxing Day I spent the Thursday and Friday with my boyfriend which was super lovely! We're hoping to move in together soon once we've saved up enough money etc so living together for those two days just made me even more excited to move in with him. We went shopping in the sales on the Thursday and I have to say I wasn't that impressed with the sales. I only ended up buying two things in Urban outfitters (which I will show you in video format tomorrow, third time lucky I hope!!) which is quite good because it keeps my bank balance happy.
Lastly, to finish the week, Saturday and today (Sunday, obv) have been spent at work keeping frantic sales shoppers happy and giving them the best possible service they could possibly get in a boiling hot shop... :| Saturday wasn't so bad, however today was a slight nightmare as the tills decided that they would not accept gift cards or credit notes today which defeats the whole point of half of the shoppers coming shopping. My, oh my the customers were not happy and my managers had a few to deal with. Obviously I can understand their frustration, we were just as annoyed! But hey, that's just the way it goes sometimes!
I have one more thing to add before I end my long rambling. I had to set up a new YouTube channel last night as I created my first channel when I was in school and I created a horrible, cringy username which you cannot change. Being as I am 21 now I didn't think it appropriate to keep it that way, so here is the link to my new channel with my one video soon to be joined by lots more. Please, please subscribe as I have hopefully two more video's coming tomorrow, so please stay tuned!
I hope I haven't bored you too much with my ramblings! Have a lovely evening all :)

188. Geek Chic

Bag: Charity Shop
Everything else:  New Look
Good morning beauties!
I am up bright and early today as I have work, yet again...But hey ho, I thought I would get outside and take my outfit photos as it will be dark by the time I get home. I'm going for a sort of 'Geek Chic' look today with the geek glasses but I quite like it. I have had these geek glasses for a while now but haven't actually worn them because I think they make me look too geeky, but I'm going with it today and embracing the geek look! We'll see what people think, I don't know why I care but I do. Horrible trait to have. Does anyone else care what other people think about what they wear etc even when you know you shouldn't?
Anyway, Merry Christmas Eve, Eve! I hope you all have a lovely day and please check out my YouTube video if you haven't already. Another will be coming very soon!!

187. It's us against the world

Jumper:  Charming Magpie's
Skirt:  In love with fashion
Socks:  Peacocks
Boots:  New Look
Hello everyone!
Here is today's look, all warm and snug in my vintage jumper and lace socks! I bought these socks yesterday from Peacocks and they're actually age 7-10 but still fit so I'm happy haha! I've gone a bit monochrome today without that intention, but I still really like this outfit dispite the lack of colour. Infact I mainly wanted to wear the pleated skirt as I mentioned it in my YouTube video yesterday as it's one of my new favourites. If you haven't already seen my first video click here and please give a thumbs up or subscribe if you want to see more! I did do another video this afternoon on the charity items that I bought today, however it was all out of focus so I'll shoot it again tomorrow hopefully. Stay tuned!!
Hope you're all getting in the festive mood, I'll be doing a Christmas post on Christmas Eve :) Have a lovely weekend!

Beautiful Frost

Top:  Primark
Jumper:  Chairty Shop
Blazer:  Charity Shop
Disco Pants:  River Island
Boots:  New Look
Hello lovelies! My, oh my, it has been a very long time since I last posted, I do appologise. I have been so overwhelmed and stressed with my uni work recently that my blog has been pushed to the back of my mind unfortunately. However, I had my last tutorial of 2012 yesterday and it went rather well considering my lack of work so that cheered me up a bit, so much so that I decided to spend the day with my boyfriend in Farnham where the frost on the tree's was just beautiful.
I wasn't sure whether to do this post as and outfit post or not or whether to put my outfit on lookbook but I decided against it today as I knew the images wouldn't get much of a look in. So anyway, I thought I would show some of the images I took today (with my new camera!!!) of the beautiful frost on the tree's and plants and a few images of me by a really lovely blue door behind Farnham Castle to show what I was wearing today. I layered up with a jumper and my velvet blazer, and I was also wearing my trusty fur coat too. It's freezing lately!!
Also, don't forget to enter my giveaway in the post below as it ends at midnight on Saturday 15th of December! See the post below for details on how to enter and what you could win!

Evening beauties!
Now, as I have somehow managed to reach over 300 followers on my blog I thought I would hold a little giveaway for you all to thank you for supporting me and my blog, so here is what you could win!

I thought it would be really nice just to do a sort of pamper giveaway seeing as it's always so cold outside so it will be nice to just relax inside one evening with a face pack on whilst painting your nails :) So I am giving away two Rimmel nail varnishes (one of which I bought for myself too!), a pot of Soap and Glory body butter which smells amazing (I have the huge pot and it is heavenly!),  two mini shower gels which I thought were really cute and a pack of 5 face packs!
All you have to do is follow the instructions below (I wanted to use Rafflecopter but the website is playing up!) for your chance of winning my giveaway. The giveaway will end 2 weeks today,15th December, at midnight and the winner will be emailed and announced on Sunday evening!
1. Must be following this blog 
2. Must follow Silent Sweetheart on Facebook
And for an optional entry
3. Write a blog post about this giveaway
Then all you have to do is leave a comment on this post with your email address and a link to your post if you chose to do the optional entry and I will use a random number generator to find the winner in 2 weeks time! Good luck!
