The whole point of me blogging was to have a space separate from the rest of my life; where I could go and write about whatever, whenever I wanted. Unfortunately recent (incredibly dull and majoritivly school related) events have meant that dispite this last week having been half term, I haven't done a proper post all week.
The worst thing is I am brimming with ideas for both blogs but I can't justify choosing those over school- especially in the case of an urgent resit from last year. This means that things have been put on hold for a week or two in order to make the time to really sit down and study for this exam. I think I mentioned in my first ever post that I didn't want to start blogging until I had finished my GCSE exams because to me school will always take top priority. It has to at the end of the day.
Don't miss me too much, I'll be back before you even notice I'm sure x
P.s. The new layout was something I stumbled across on a whim but I think I love it! What do you think?
P.p.s. Sorry about the abundance of depressing posts recently! I'll be more optimistic after this I promise!
My bloglovin has finally been sorted out- it hasn't been working for weeks! Anywho if you were following me before you won't be now because of the reset so if you come by here often I would love for you to follow me!
There was a time where my wardrobe reflected a very clean cut distinct style that was more "smart weekend" and I still have those days of course but that was a time when I spent 5 days a week in school uniform where as now I have the freedom to dress weather appropriately! Hello layers in cold weather and goodby sweaty summer feet- TMI?
When I go shopping now I tend to buy more staples or timeless pieces. These outfits reflect just that for me! I'm not a fashionable person and I dress for myself- I'm not a floral dresses girl most the time and I'm way happier in darker colours. Don't get me wrong I have friends who live in floral dresses and skirts but they suit them beautifully- me less so but we all have different bodies and tastes and that's a good thing! In school comfort is my top priority so at least 4 out of 5 days, you can bet I'll be in skinny jeans and a jumper given the season. Then with a pair of little boots and a jacket I'm good to go!
Pinterest is my source for everything right now especially style inspiration. The pictures in the collage are a few of my favourite pins from the past few weeks.
A fresh page in the diary is more than neccissery after last weekend- chaotic would be an understatement!
This from pinterest was my wallpaper for a while it's now a picture of my friend mummified in loo role but that's for another day.
The important thing is that I've been reminding myself in the more stressful situations is that they do blow over- eventually and we have to embrace the good things each day brings around. No matter how small...
Enjoy today because after all when's the next 14th of October 2013 going to come around?
It's been a while since I have compiled a list of things I'm lusting after but just recently there have been a few things that I've been on the hunt for or in the case of some of the shoes below wishing for so here are a few things!
Converse: I know we've had this conversation before you don't need to tell me! The thing is I just can't bring myself to decide being the tempermental person that I am! A friend of mine has the new "leather" converse in white so I went into Schuh and asked about the black pair and bam. They don't arrive in the UK until December. 3 months away. They have the ones that are exactly the same in white but not the black ones. No because clearly that would silly of me to think that they would bring them out at the same time. *sighs*
Floral Dr Martains: These are defiantly a Wish list item! These are £90 in Schuh so I can't see myself taking the plunge but a matte brown pair might just be too tempting I don't know...
Brown Sherling Boots: I love the whole Fur topped trench boot look and I had an absolutely amazing pair for the last 2 years that I wore to death. Literally they got a hole in the bottom and I had to throw them out :'(. I've been looking for another pair this year but the closest I've found is these from newlook but they have a huge heal and I'm 5ft 8 as it is! I can't go to school being a giant! So the hunt continues!
Brown Ladies Loafers: I need these. They are gorgeous and feminine yet comfy and everything that's good in life. These are from New Look but they're everywhere right now want I like about these is that they're a waterproof leather-equ material as a posed to a suade which is good for days like today where the heavens open and drown everybody/ just me.
Biker Jacket: I might have ordered this at lunch time, its just what I've been looking for I have wanted a leather jacket for a while now so ill let you know if this beauty from Matalan fits when it arrives!
Marroon Scarf: I have a scarf addiction and I'm in love with the colour Marroon so its only a matter of time isn't it really?
The Great Gatsby Soundtrack: I need this I've heard all the songs on it at some point and I adore them all so this is going on my autumn playlist. If I was to pick favourites my top 5 are: Sia- Kill and Run, Florence and the Machine- Over the Love, The XX- Together, Lana del Ray- Young and Beautiful, Gotye- Your Hearts a Mess. But I love them all!
Vampire Weekend- Modern Vampires of the City: There are better things to name an album granted but I've really gotten into these guys recently! They're good.
The Hunger Games- Catching Fire Soundtrack: *designated 10 second freaking out session commences* HAVE YOU SEEN THE TRACK LIST? IT'S AMAZING LIKE LOADS OF ARTISTS I LOVE ARE ON THERE! *designated 10 second freaking out session over* Coldplay's Atlas has a Lyric video up now (YouTube it its very pretty!) there's also a Sia track and Imagine Dragons and Of Monsters and Men and Ellie Goulding to name my favourite people! Unlike The Hunger Games there is no Taylor Swift though, my sister will be upset! If only October was closer! :(
