Where you gonna go?

Adidas Roll Neck Urban Outfitters

Oh man. These pictures. BASICALLY, my very very lovely friend Jess offered to give Jim a bit of a break from being an ''Instagram boyfriend' [if you don't' know what that is ,google it and google it now] and offered to do pictures for my blog this weekend. Excited that I had another creative to help me I was intrigued to see how they would turn out. 

From this I have learnt I am a goof, I can't take myself seriously and basically well sucked for this ''shoot'' all the laughing and the weird faces pulled for this lil' set. Ima pretend it was the intention . . . .

Do you ever long for a piece of clothing for so so long? and you get it and you thought you'd wear it all the time like you envisioned in your head? And when you finally get it and it you wear it that one time excited and it gets lost in the back of your wardrobe till God knows when? Well, I'm guilty of that with this beauty of a roll neck. I'd longed for it ever since I saw it in Urban outfitters for like nearly £30, I scoffed and laughed all the way out of the store at the price but I couldn't get the damned thing outta my head. That's when you know you kinda might have made a shopping mistake. Knowing that James would leave me if I spent that kind of money on this top, as beaut as it is, I managed to find it a hell of a lot cheaper on the internet.

As I was wondering what the hell to wear whilst rooting through my wardrobe, an avalanche of clothes fell onto me this weekend as I opened up my wardrobe doors, I re-found it again as I dug through the pile and decided to give it the attention it really deserves. I forgot how really lovely this top is. I'm not really a fan of roll necks I don't think? Like I like them and everything I just don't think they like me? I think they make my face look even squarer?[Is that a word? IDK] my favourite part is the sheer back, the top is a sportswear brand BUT I like the back kinda of gives it a definite separation from the gym and firmly makes it something you can dress up, you feel me? No? Ok.

I'm rambling now and I'm tired and I drunk some prosecco on a school night and well I'll probably find it hard to get up for work tomorrow.

Bury It and Rise Above

Urban Outfitters Tea Dress

Ok so at this moment in time I'm blogging from James' car on the way to Cheshire. There's this thing called a ''hotspot'' on my iPhone that I can connect to my Mac and well my mind is officially blown. And so's my data. Don't judge too hard, I'm a technically n0ob and basically I love this. 

Shall we now talk about the clothes? Let's talk about the clothes. 

I'm back from one of my many eBay pilgrimages, this time bringing back with me this dress from Urban Outfitters. Lord knows what the price of it was brand new as you've got to take out a loan errytime you want to buy something from there, for me, I only had to spend a fiver. 

This tea dress as I like to call them echoes the very dresses I used to love and wear when I was around 17. I was a sucker for anything with a collar, PeterPan ones were my preferred collar of choice - FYI. So when I saw this whilst browsing eBay, I felt so nostalgic that I had to place my bid. 

There's 2 downsides, prizes if you have a hunch for what I'm about to say.

1) It's so damned short. I should just learn by now that my super stretched legs ain't built for dresses unless I don't mind flashing a bit of butt

2) Oh my God it's so see through. Like I thought it would be a bit sheer, but Nah you can totally see like my underwear and stuff. There's no way I could wear this without a vest underneath or tights. I guess I could trash it up and take it to my advantage and wear some black underwear underneath and make it like super obvious? I'll have a play and see. 

I did have this in mind as being a lovely dress for the hotter summer days, the materials light and cool, perfect for those hot hot days when the British sun decides to shine. I also thought it would look pretty cute for when I'm swanning around Paris in August. 
we shall see.

It’s Better To Burn Then Fade Away

Primark dungaree dress Lamoda sandals


You know when it's like a week before payday and you look in your food cupboards on the scrounge cos you're bare hungry and kinda mash everything together hoping it works?

That's how I feel about this outfit.

The weather's been annoying, hot but rainy, I can't bear to have anything on my skin especially my legs when it's like that or when it's hot for that matter. Summer time I would be totally cool walking around nekid if you know, I wouldn't get done for indecent exposure and don't hate me gut/muffin tops. I wear stuff that's loose and flowy, creating the illusion that I ain't got nutihin' on, Que this steal of a dress from my recent Primark trip. It's so loose and flowy I'm just all kinds of in love with in. I can  do the layer thing I love with it and it was only a fiver. A fiver. Yup.

I've been after a pair of flatform sandals for a bit now, I've had the perfect ones in mind and never really quite managed to find the right ones. I wanted some that were reminiscent of my child that also echoed like the Spice Girls or something. Their wardrobes combined were the bomb. Maybe not Poshs', too much black. Tangent aside I found the perfect pair on the Lamonda site in the sale and well I felt like it was fate or something. I also picked up some fishnet ankle socks as I've been hankering for a few pairs to team with shoes and well here we are looking like a ninja who loves leopard print a little too much. If you get that reference I'll love you forever.

Seeing as I loved it so much in my other post I'm getting my Micheal Jackson on again in these pictures minus the crotch grabbing.

Same Sea

Zara Pink Leather Jacket

Come, Feast a-pon the jacket of my wildest kawaii dreams that surprisingly ZARA have put out for this spring/summer. Kudos palz. 

wandering around the internet, like I do 98% percent of the time, a lass I follow on Instagram posted this little beauty debating whether to buy it or not, I'm an advocate for reckless spending apparently I urged her to get the jacket and swiftly moving onto the Zara site to see the jacket was sold out of all sizes. Probs the bank Gods doing me a favour.

THAT WASNT TILL

The following Thursday me friend Jess [all the best people are called Jess just FYI] went to the Vivienne Westwood event in Leeds and you'll never guess what but somehow we tripped and fell into a Zara and funnily enough Jess wanted the said jacket in yellow. We saw them, we tried them on, we put them back and cried. After we left the event earlier [more like a glorified shopping night, and with my current bank balance state, it was a no from me] we somehow tumbled back into Zara, we both looked at each other, credit cards in hand and I basically said I'll buy mine if you buy yours and well here we are.

It's ok though cos like I ain't afraid to live off beans if it means I get to keep this jacket. The weather has been typically British today i.e 2 days of sun 478946893 days of humid weird rain that fucks up your hair, did someone say Hermione? This kind of weather is so so hard to dress for. I opted for jeans which I never wear, and a stripy tee to go with my new bae. I'm going to Paros in a few months so I can't wait to swan around in this on a warm summers evening.

Half a Year Haul


Hey, happy Monday! How've you been, good I hope?
I'm currently in bed with a food baby from butternut squash curry and brown rice Which I made from scratch. To quote Rachel Green.  

After putting it off for a while and not really feeling it, I finally filmed a haul yey go, Jess, that I don't totally hate or cringe when I watch back. There's no fancy editing and my camera dies half way through but I am showing you my fave bits from the first half of 2016. I'm going to try super super hard to get my YouTube game strong and really develop this channel of mine. I just need to muster the patience learn dem editing/shooting skills.

P.s must remember to take a picture for my thumbnail as not to use a random image.

Be a pal and hit subscribe and perhaps a thumbs up? [not down they make me cry]
