Shot me out of the sky, you're my kryptonite

I'm pretty ashamed to admit it, being an "indie" girl but I have a bit of a soft spot for 'One Direction'. I can't help it, Their music has this power over me! I literally want to get my bootie moving from the first note. Please tell me I'm not the only one? Plus, their kind of cute too... shot gun Liam!

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirates life for me!

I went to Costa today (other coffee shops are available ;)) with my besties and I realised just how much I'm going to miss them. Universities looming so of course we're splitting up, going our separate ways... well for now anyway. I can literally talk to them about anything though (I'm sure you understand) and the prospect of not being able to see them straight after a tragic event is quite frightening. Aaahh, guess it's time to prepare for miss independent.  
Reckon I look a bit like a pirate wench in this outfit, hence the random title.

It's the thing in life I regret the most, leaving you standing there

Today I came to the realisation that healthy eating is very important. For lent I decided to give up all things unhealthy, I know, it's a pretty big ask, perhaps it's even impossible. Conversely I pursued and within a day already felt more alert and raring to go, it was definitely showing effects. All from cutting out the chocolates and crisps from my diet! Yesterday however, was a major set back I had two nutella crammed pancakes, numerous slice of pizza and a tantelising Mexican hot chocolate, no regrets. But today (yes you guessed it) I feel like utter crap, yes I'm back to my lethargic, hardly awake self. Lesson learnt people; eat crap, feel crap.

Style Icon: #3 Ellie Goulding

Not only has she got the most amazing clothes but she is dating Radio 1 heartthrob Greg James, I am more than jealous! Her unique shaved haircut and androgynous style makes her seem edgy but her soft eyes give her a girly vibe, something you can't buy at Topshop. The thing I love most about her though; she is not the medias idea of beautiful. She has a longer face, larger nose, thinner lips etc. than those airbrushed alien types from Maybeline advertisements but she is still stunning. Just goes to show, you don't have to look like the magazines depiction of beauty in order to be gorgeous, you can be yourself.

Love from,

Ps. Has anyone else noticed she seems to put her arms up a lot? Very windswept

There is a road to happiness we just haven't found it yet

I saw this dress in the window of my local boutique and automatically fell in love. The shape is so feminine and rather flattering, plus tartans a winter trend that comes round every year, sold! The dress reminded me of one I saw Lucy from "The Only Way is Essex" wear, she looked absolutely gorgeous. 

Feeling rather ill so I came home from school early, the rest of the days been full of napping and catching up on "Skins". I guess, everyone needs a bit of 'me' time now and again.

It's Over

Hard to please,
you make me feel so fragile 
you talk in riddles, 
you're hard to decipher...
tell me, is this worth it?
if I can fault you
surely you're faulting me
tearing me apart in your mind
and it's quite clear I'm not your perfect
but frankly neither are you, mine
no one is 
I can't settle for this
it may be much but I need to be your everything
and I think I'm done trying

Follow me down to the red oak tree

For lent I'm not really giving anything up but I'm going to try and start exercising, which is harder than it sounds. I'm really not a fan of the whole rapid heart beat thing, but we'll see how this goes! What are you giving up for lent? Before you say chocolate,I tried that a couple of years back and it's torture, don't put yourself through it! On a more topical note, today I heard about a really tragic death, a boy who used to got to my school unfortunately died in a car crash. He was so young so it seems impossible! But it just goes to show how fragile life is. All my thoughts go to Ben Wesley's family and friends, may he rest in peace.

Now I'm breaking at the britches and at the end of all your lines

Hey hey everybody, 

This was a bit of a Birdy inspired look that I meshed together from my very kind friends clothes. I stayed round the night to lose scrabble virginity, I know, how can I be 17 and not even attempted a game of scrabble? I just do not know, but I do know that I'm pretty much addicted now and I cannot wait for a rematch (of course I lost, being an amateur). Anyway, being me, I forgot a change of clothes, so my friend kindly lent me these.

Angora Jumper: Lipsy
Dress: Primark
Tights: god knows
Boots: Topshop

Please do excuse the very attractive name badge, completely forgot it was there. Does your school make you wear them? I'm convinced we're the only one.

Happy Pancake Day!

Style Icon: #4 Emma Watson

"My idea of being sexy is less is more, the less you reveal the more people can wonder"- Emma Watson. That says it all, she depicts class whilst still looking effortlessly stylish. And who doesn't want to aspire to that? It's true, getting your baps out whilst using a belt as a skirt leaves no room for the imagination and it doesn't do much for your reputation either. With that in mind, I see Emma as a really positive role model and  the epitome of a style icon. 

Lots of Love,

Today a really serious topic regrettably came to my attention; racism. In my opinion it's ridiculous and if anyone uses the race card in an effort to belittle others they are only unmasking their own ignorance. 

A persons ethnicity has absolutely no impact on the way they handle situations or choose to act. It's purely the way they were brought up and their past experiences. Yes we naturally make generalizations but that does not mean we should use these "stereotypes" to produce negative stigma or even hatred towards a certain group. You may have seen a couple of white people wearing tracksuits and starting fights but that does not mean every white person on the planet is a thug. See how stupid that is? So why even bother to use another persons race as a criticism? 

If anything the racism I saw today showed just how silly it all is. A Spanish woman had the audacity to complain about  my friends driving and considering she was a new driver it was rather stupid.What do you expect from someone who hasn't had that much experience? But she approached us calmly, no yelling or even aggressive body language, she merely spoke her mind. Although I do not agree with the comments she made, I do respect her for the way she tackled the situation. 

Much to my dismay she was still open to racial prejudice and it sickened me. Yes she had an accent, yes she wasn't English but does that mean she should be stunned into silence? Does that mean she should be mocked? No, she's a human being with manners, race doesn't have anything to do with it. 

And to be quite frank, even if she yelled and threw her fists in the air she could have easily have been a white woman, maybe even a black woman. There is absolutely no cultural code that states every single person who acts rudely is from a certain race. Race has nothing to do with it. 

No one should be ashamed about where they come from and I'm not trying to suggest that. But do you think people CHOOSE where they're from? Do you think there is some sort of SIMS character selection process before birth? There bloody well isn't. And people should not be made to feel insecure because of something they cannot handle. I have heard about a little girl trying to cut her skin off because of taunts for being black. She felt so ASHAMED of her skin colour, she risked bleeding to death to change it. Over something she did not choose and cannot change. She was treated terribly, as though she was being a horrible person but no, she was merely born.

I did not make this post to offend people or cause any sort of debate. I just wanted to make people think. Think before you negatively generalize. Think before you offend someone for something out of their control. Think before speak.

May there be peace on earth (tehe),

Road trip baby!

Hola peeps!

Just to fill you in on the past few days, I thought I'd put in a few pictures. It was the first time we'd gone away without having to use public transport or our parents (they call themselves unpaid taxi drivers) and it was so nice to feel independent! We had the top down cruising along the country lanes, movie star style, which was actually my first time in a convertible! I would definitely recommend it if you need more voluminousness locks. Of course no "grown up" weekend away would be fully lived without a few childish activities, we went to this really quaint garden centre to see the animals , especially the cute little bunnies and to the park to fly accross the ever so scary zip wire. Overall a rather fun, relaxed week. How were your half-terms, did you get up to anything exciting?


I don't want to live that way, reading into every word you say

I am VERY tired so sorry about the decreased size in ramble today (although you're probably grateful, tehe) . We went to Oxford to visit a good friend and as a result,had a fabulous day out. The outfit -as per usual- was very relaxed, sorry about the crappy pictures, it was very dark.

I can tell just what you want, you don't want to be alone



Hope you had a fabulous Valentine's day and aren't suffering for it today! One of my bestest friendies has a free house tonight so we're making the most of it! The next day we're making our way up to Thame so I'll take a few pictures for y'all. Got a teeny bit dressed up for the occasion and this is the result, hope you like. Is the background annoying? I can't seem to find a white wall ANYWHERE but i'll try.

Does his love make your head spin?

Hello my lovelies!

As you all know today is Valentine's Day. Notice the couples filling every restaurant and hearts decorating every single shop, even the tiny newsagents. It's a dreaded day for us singletons, every corner turned has something to remind us that we're alone. But should it really be like this? Is being single really a death sentence? I think not. To be honest I feel like everyone and everything suspects this should be the most depressing day of the year for me, but it isn't. You cannot find someone with a click of a finger because to be honest if love was that easy to find, it wouldn't be worth looking for. So every lonesome Valentine's Day should be a triumph, you're not settling for just anybody to feel a little bit of comfort, you're waiting for the real deal. 

Here's some items I saw whilst online shopping, wear them proud single ladies, cause
you're heart's still up for grabs. 

Lots of love,

Style Icon: #5 Shenae Grimes


With the new series rekindling my love for 90210 (it's so addictive right?!) it's no surprise that I have noticed Annie's incredible style, both on-screen and off-screen. She showcases both class and boho chique which is rather hard to master, so hats off to her! And I think I've cracked the secret, she seems to tousle her hair to give a relaxed feel, whilst wearing classy and fashionable pieces, giving everything she wears a "wearable quality". She was the inspiration behind my ombred hair and actually made me feel cool about having curly locks, back when I had no idea about who I was. So thank you Shenae for helping me feel confident within myself and for being a true style icon. 

Lots of Love, 

Ps. This is my last post today, promise!

Please, Please, Please! Wishlist #1

Hey hey hey,
Two posts in one day? You can tell I've put today aside to study... that really is not going to happen. NEWS FLASH! I have found the new ASOS, modcloth.com. I cannot stop thinking up outfits, this one above being a prime example. Everything on Modcloth's stock is so retro yet wearable, it's addictive. The downside is I'm saving up for a holiday, why do you have to find the must-haves when you're money's on a padlock? and the worst part is it does seem affordable, well, Topshop prices... grr.

So for all of you that need a little splurge after exam stress, this is the PERFECT site.


New Found Obsession: Company Magazine

Hello everyone,

Hope you're all having a lovely half term (even though were only a day in). I thought I'd share my love for Company magazine with you all before you're so caught up with exams that you can't even read the title. It's visually enticing and the articles are beautifully poignant with puns peppered  across every page. I would definitely recommend buying it, it's practically tailor made for every single British teenager with an obsession with style. I guess i feel like it really gets us and it knocks down all boundaries, using curvier models of all races. I'm in love.

Retails at £2, released once a month.

Hugs and Kisses

Portfolio Photographs

Hello everybody! 

A few months ago I needed to swiftly construct my portfolio for university. I had ten pieces of "good quality" work when I needed 20. I think you can see the predicament I was in. Of course my lovely best friends were quick to jump to the post. I had the idea of constructing outfits that would completely transform them and taking corresponding photographs (I'm taking Fashion Communication you see).We made a day of it, I dressed them all up and had a mini photo shoot. It was actually really fun and my friends quickly got into their characters! I'd definitely suggest having a go!

The Grunge Look: 

The Vintage Look:

The Androgynous Look: 

These were the best shots (well in my humble opinion). Hope you like them! 

Today was non-school uniform day with a cops and robbers theme (well you wouldn't have guessed!). I was the only person who went all out, swag bag and all. Everyone else seemed to think the "undercover cop" was the ultimate costume. I just don't understand it, you'd think people would jump at the chance to dress up, hang loose and be someone else for the day but no. It seems we've lost touch with our inner-childs  or maybe it's just a distaste for fancy dress, who knows? Oh well, I love dressing up and if I'm the only one in a funky number next Halloween so. be. it. 

Lots of love, 

Ps. Have a good half term!

You climb into my head without knocking

I'm getting better at this whole regular blogging thing, woop, woop.

Today I had a massive revelation, I woke up and thought, "oh my, it's already Tuesday". This may seem like a matter of fact right now but considering it felt like just a second ago I had woken up to a dreaded Monday morning, it was relativity scary. I had spent the whole of yesterday feeling moody and willing the day to end, leaving me doing nothing memorable or worth while throughout. Which I guess is rather common with the monotonous routine of our daily lives but still, we don't have long so why are we wasting our time? 
So I promised myself that I will never be a grumpy git again, life is way too short to be wishing precious days away. Funnily enough, today was one of the best days of my life. 

This is just another sixth form outfit, nothing too exciting, just comfortable. As of course, comfortableness is a definite necessity when you're spending six hours sitting down. What you can't see are two pairs of socks, tights and thermals. This seemed like a smart plan this morning when I looked over at the snowy lane outside my window but with size 3 boots on that are already rather snug, it was flawed. I have spent the whole day in a remarkable amount of pain (obviously with no complaint due to my revelation). Now I know why my Mum used to insist on trying on shoes with remarkably thick socks on, as Jessie J would say, "Mumma knows best".
