Acid-washed jeans are the best things to jazz up a simple outfit; every time I feel like I’m in a slump I just slip on a pair of these babies and it instantly improves my mood. I haven’t been wearing it lately because it’s been unusually hot in the U.K. (the horror) but I just can’t wait for it to get a little cooler so that I can whack them on!
So while I patiently wait for that day to come I have decided that it was time to do another one of my “One Item Five Ways” posts. I really look forward to doing these, and I guess I could class them as a series now! If there’s anything you would like to see me experiment with then please let me know in the comments below.
I don’t know about you but I’m exhausted; it’s not that I’ve been doing a lot of work in the past week but because I decided to do all of that work in one night. Last night, actually, and it was probably one of the stupidest things I’ve done.
It’s sad that now that I’m back working and doing heaps of uni work that I’m really looking forward to my next break. I’ve got a party to go to sometime in March so I’ve been digging through my wardrobe and found this leopard print dress. I haven’t actually worn it before which is crazy because it’s gorgeous.
I paired this dress with some heels that my sister bought for me from New Look – something else I’ve not yet worn because of this stupid weather – and some gold jewellery (you can get similar boots here). I think I might just wear this for the party! The dress is made from a sort-of sweater/jumper material so I don’t really need to wear anything extra, especially because it’s got long sleeves. I probably would wear tights though in the evening just in case…
I think I’ve fallen in love with this dress. It’s definitely going to keep me warm, and because of the design at the front and back it gives me the illusion of having lovely curves! I’m really skinny so finding something that makes me look like I have curves is pretty difficult.
The only thing I would say about this dress is that it’s a tiny bit too short, so I’d definitely recommend wearing shorts underneath just in case!
So what do you normally wear on nights out? I’m still trying to think of other possibilities, but I’m not too sure whether I’d wear any brands (like MA*RS) when going out drinking.
Before I go: thank you very much to those who took part in my poll! The results were quite interesting and it seems that people still want to see more outfit & makeup posts. I guess that this post is the first of many in future!
Anyway, that’s all for now. I hope you have a good rest of the weekend! xx
Many thanks to Persunmall for sponsoring me with this dress!
Hey guys! How is your year so far? Are you having a good year so far? (Or is it too early to say that?)
I did, my year has definitely had a great start… And do you want to know why? It’s because SHERLOCK’S BACK IN TOWN, AWH YIH.
As you may already know, I’m a big fan of Sherlock. As soon as I saw Benedict Cumberbatch’s face on the screen I emitted a little fan-girl scream (surprising my housemate) and continued to do so for about ten minutes or so. I was just so happy to see it back on the screen after goodness knows how long.
But I’m going to stop there because I want this blog to be spoiler-free, but those who have watched it… It was amazing, wasn’t it?!
My New Years Eve didn’t, however, feel much like New Years Eve and it’s probably because it as the first time I didn’t see my family nor boyfriend at all. Living away from home does make things difficult, but it only makes me look forward to going home even more! Can’t wait until all of my uni assignments are done. Luckily I was invited to go out to the pub with my housemate and I went out in ane gal, which isn’t what I usually do, so my makeup was very agejo inspired. I was originally going to do cornrows on one side but my hair just ended up being so curly that it looked a bit weird.
I wore my favourite jeans going out, and this belt that I haven’t worn in what feels like ages. I really should do oraora/ane gal a lot more.
So, yes, 2013: the year of many ups and downs and also of being relatively naughty and spending lots of money on MA*RS. That’s all going to change this year! I’ve promised myself to be a Budget Gal and not spend on over £50 a month (including going out to London), and I’ll be referring back to my points system. I guess that’s resolution number one right there! I wasn’t going to do New Years Resolutions this year but it feels kind of weird not doing them so here’s my list!:
1. Improve on my blogging
3. Keep to my gal budget
4. Try out more hairstyles
I’m keeping it really simple this year because otherwise I’d never stick to them. I think I might go into more detail of my goals and inspirations in my next post. What’re your New Years Resolutions? Got many this year?
Just a short post of my look! It was the first time I had dolled up in over a month, so I though it deserved to be shown on this blog.
I’m so sorry that I haven’t really been updating as frequently as before; I’m still on my semi-hiatus because I know that as soon as I say “I’m back!” I’ll disappear for like 2 weeks and then would be all apologetic saying “I was caught up in something”. So for now I’ll just stick with my semi-hiatus mode.
I swear I’m beginning to love this cardi <3
New Look cardi, Primark top, New Look jeans,
Muse necklace, Primark socks & Dorothy Perkins’ boots
I actually love oraora. I’m not kidding. I actually really want to try out the style a lot more and try out different makeup styles ~ So this is more of a sweet/oraora look. Next time I would try adding some black for that beautiful smokiness.
Anyway, I have quite a fair amount of stuff to blog about in the upcoming weeks but I’m going to take my time posting them. That’s all for today I guess! Until next time (although I don’t know when ;_;). I love you all <3
My brain is so dead right now because, as usual, I just have a huge list of all of the blogposts that I should’ve posted weeks before but I haven’t. I was supposed to make a birthday post last week but… I’ll just leave that for now.
The reason why I’m doing this post first before my birthday post is that it’s linked to my previous one, where I did a review on Soul Sister magazine. Ever since I read that magazine I’m re-inspired to try out oraora and ane gal, and on the day that I planned on doing the vlog I dressed up in this style.
My make~ I’m trying to wear these lens more often because they’re gonna’ run out soon ;_;
My coord for that day! It was actually warm enough for me to wear something like this for once. Damn you English summer! We used to have really really hot summers but this year it’s just crap D:
This was actually my first time wearing that top despite me having it for at least a year OTL. I should really wear my old clothes more often! Or at least do a wardrobe clean out.
Sorry that this is a fairly short post… I’m just so tired right now. Should probably sleep more. Well that’s all for now!
