10 Hours in Schiphol Airport with CitizenM

10 Hours in Amsterdam Schiphol Airport Citizen M
Me and my Bezza back in Amsterdam 2013

10 hours in Schiphol Airport ? No problem! After a long haul flight, and facing a layover before you catch your next connection, sometimes the last thing you wanna do as weary traveler, is go off and do some exploring of your current surroundings. Wondering what you could possibly do in 10 hours in an airport? You're in luck cos I'm about to let you in on it!

 Rijksmuseum – Holland Boulevard 

1) Rijksmusem - Holland Boulevard
Ok so this possibly one of the coolest things to do, did you know Schiphol airport has its very own museum? If you're anything like me and love museums this is a perfect way to spend some time whilst waiting or your next flight. The exhibits do change quite frequently, so even if you have already paid the museum a visit chances are they will changed things up so you wouldn't be seeing the same thing twice!

2) Sheraton Hotel - Fitness and Spa 
Any budding gym goers out there? I'm a bit of a self proclaimed fitness enthusiast [ahem] myself and always feel tip top after bossing a 5K run and a bit of a weights sesh. Not a fan of the gym? You can also take advantage of the spa facilities, all this for 20 euros, could you think of a better way to relax pre-flight?

3) Holland Casino - Holland Boulevard

Fancy trying your hand at a bit of Black Jack? Or playing the slots more your thing? If you're wanting to kill a bit of time before your flight between 6.30-19.45pm 
try your luck and who knows you could be a winner!

4) Exquisite - Holland Boulevard

Ok so this is something I can get behind, a little bit of retail therapy! Be it that you've forgotten to pick up some gifts for your loved ones or you wanna you know treat yo' self Exquisite has the best range of cigars, whisky, wines and liquors oh fancy!

5) Bubbles Bar and Seafood - Lounge 1

Looking for somewhere to have a chill before you board your flight and grab some food? Open 6am until 9pm this is the must try spot for freshly prepared seafood and a cheeky flute of Champagne or 2 ;) Situated alongside a salt water aquarium, you can watch the little fishy critters do their thang whilst enjoying some tasty eats!

Have you been to Schiphol Airport or will be doing so very soon? I'd love to know in the comments below what you thought of it!

Culottes, wide leg trousers, whatever you wanna call them, they were definatley a staple in my 2016 wardrobe in the summer months and the latter end of the year. After facing my culottes phobia (read here) I was well and truly hooked on the trend. Like Pokemon I wanted to catch (have) them all in different colours/styles/materials/textures you name it, I'd drool over it. 

The only mildly annoying thing is that they're not really winter appropriate and have kinda been regulated to the back of my draws until the warmer months come back around and honestly guys I had started having real culottes withdrawals especially for my dungarees ones. I toyed with the idea of wearing them with tights under them, wondering if it would be a huge fashion hell no. I tried it out, snapped a picture to Lucy to get an opinion that wasn't James' I literally don't care stare, got the thumbs up and donned the unlikely duo and freakin' loved having culottes back in my life. They're just the comfiest things ever, long time readers of my blog will no I'm not really a fan of jeans, or anything thats tight around my legs, I feel uncomfortable and frumpy. 

I finished things off with a stripy tee as I've been layering everything in my wardrobe with them, you know the drill now guys, if I can get away with wearing a striped tee underneath then thats exactly what I'm gonna do. And to add a bit of warmth as the day Jess shot these it was so freaking cold, I rehashed an old fave of mine. I've had this leopard print jacket for years, originally from Topshop I managed to win it on eBay for 99p lol. 

What do you think of my unlikely duo? Its there anything you're dying to wear again once the weather heats up a bit? As always, I'd love to know in the comments below.

Neon Cactus

Zara Cactus Playsuit

You'd be forgiven if you thought this ensemble was put together in mine of a toddler and not a soon to be 27 year old (it's still not getting any easier the more I say it).

Being a sucker for layering and clashing patterns has meant I spent 99% go my time walking around dressed as a giant toddler. I used to shy away from playsuits as #long and jumpsuits are always ALWAYS off the card unless I want to sport a very unflattering half mast - no thanks.

I partially feel toddler-equse in this playsuit, I think it has a lot to do with the mini cacti dotted about and the deep contrasting blue. BTW lads this was also another product of my very successful Zara sale shop a few weekends back that left me all giddy when I stumbled upon the last one in store for £5.99 - yey me! However the size small lable left me sceptical that I'd even be able to fit into the damn thing that I came over with giddness again (chill mate) for the second time when I realised it did in fact fit. FYI Jess, if you keep going at those offices biscuits the rate that you currently are, it ain't gonna fit no longer. . . .

For now the playsuit fits like a dream and actually clings to the bits I don't mind and AND is dead flattering. The only hack is that the straps are really really hard to manoeuvre myself into and I end up looking like a contortionist trying to get in it. Swings and round about eh? I can see myself riding out the rest of winter in this bad boy and most of summer but yano, without the layers.

Did someone say festival wardrobe?

Have you managed to bag yourself any goodies in a sale? I'd love to know in the comments below <3

Hype Lust List

Hype Wish List Skate Hut


Its been a really long time since I got my create on and made a wish list. I'm not sure about you but theres something quite therapeutic about making a little organised list of all the things I've been lusting over. I love me a good list. I've recently been introduced to Hype clothing, I know I know, where have I been right? And well, now I have I'm well and truly HOOKED, so much I'm now more than aware of the Hyped clothing shaped hole in my wardrobe that's in urgent need to be filled *cough* It's my birthday in March *cough* ;)

1) HypexPokemon Team Rocket T-shirt

Ok, so I'm starting off with a banger, I need this shirt in my life more then anything else because reasons but manly because James, myself and Cassie are like the real Team Rocket. Minus the fact I hate being called Jesse. . . . PLUS it's on a galaxy background, need I say more?

2) Meowth Embroidered Crewneck 

I am so in love with this HypexPokemon collaboration and having developed a penchant for crew necks recently [namely because of the horrific weather. . . . ]  I have taken to wearing them under my bomber jacket as a snuggly duo to keep me warm until this cold snap we're recently in the middle of stops. This Meowth version would be the purrfect [lol such wit] addition to my winter wardrobe.

3) Hype Backpack Holographic Polka Black

It's a metallic backpack, what's not to love? It's practical AND satisfies my metallic obsession, plus its got all this contrasting black hard wear that gives me all the heart eyes.

4) Hype Bolt Mandala T-shirt

Ah, I adore this. It's perfect for festival season. I'm not usually one for the monochrome thang but I was very much drawn to the design of this. I'm a HUGE tattoo advocate and this very ,much echo's the work of some of my favourite artist's. Get in my wardrobe plz.

5) Hype Script Beanie

I love beanie's, I've been practically living in mine this winter and in my aforementioned fave bomber and crew neck combination, this little number would finish off the duo perfectly.

What do you think to my Hype picks? What would be on your wish list?

I'd love to know in the comments below <3

Forever Not Dressing for the Weather


Spin Doctor Arcane Crop Top

Do you have that one thing in your wardrobe that gives you all the heart palpataions but can't wear because it just doesn't fit right? This is me and my metallic skirt. James came home with it for me MONTHS ago and I was so giddy to wear but when I put it on it was way too big :/ You see, I have these hips that just won't quit and the waist of a child which just makes shopping for my bottom half a bloody nightmare. So it's kinda been relegated to the back of my draws and every now again I get it out and sigh. Last weekend I had a real hankering to wear it as I thought it would look pretty sweet with my new crop from blue banana, and lads, I wasn't wrong.

I'm afraid of black. I feel all out of sync when I'm head to toe in all back errythang' it's just never been my jam. I was determined to make this skirt work as it was just the right thing to break up a  potentially dull outfit. Which would be a shame as this crop is freakin' rad also btw, can we just take a moment to appreciate the creepy cool eye design and the drool worthing contrasting rolled sleeves? Also, someone remind me why I thought it was a good idea to wear a slightly cropped top in January when the temperature can only be described as Boltic? I was a little impatient and risked hypothermia for fashion, good job I had the fluffiest jacket known to man on hand - thx Iron Fist you babes. Pretty and a good way of ensuring no hypothermia is caught.

Ugh seriously is it summer yettttt. I'm craving not wearing a million layers, festival fashion, little summer dresses I can just throw on. Little shoes or none at all as I tend to find myself bare foot 99% of summer. High waisted shorts and crops tops, I could go on but I won't as its making me sad and I don't want to wish half the year away cos I want a bit of sun. Having said that, this crop will be the perfect little addition to my summer wardrobe and I'm pretty sure a staple in my festival outfits and I can't wait to style it up more. For now it will remain partially hidden by layers for the rest of the winter months until this bby can really shine.

Is their anything in your wardrobe your dying to wear but can't cos hypothermia? I'd love to know in the comments below.

Feel Good Playlist with HMV

Crosley vinyl Player Paramore

 Oh My. If you're anything like me you'll currently be undergoing a huge bout of January blues. January kinda gets a raw deal in terms of it being one of the worst months due to the anti-climax of Christmas the month before. The Christmas break seems like forever ago, you have all this new year pressure to make a resolution or some profound thing when all you really want to do is eat a whole Terry's chocolate orange in one sitting with no judgement. You have to go back to work [ew] the dark mornings [double ew] you're broke cos the aforementioned Xmas and living off Tesco Value baked beans and bread where you've had to pick the mould off. Think I'm joking. . . .

So we're all in agreement January needs a bit of a perk me up right? One of the arguably best instant mood lifters is a bomb AF playlist to help you through the long wait till summer [yey] whether it's a playlist to accompany you and make your morning commute to work that little more bearable or help spur you on and keep you pumped at the gym, I asked my nearest and dearest [James, Charlotte and Pip] what their feel good songs are and why and put together a list with the help of HMV and created a fail safe playlist of tracks that are an instant mood lifter.

Crosley vinyl Player ParamoreCrosley vinyl Player Paramore

1) Chocolate - The 1975

11) The Middle -Jimmy Eat World
12) Hey Julie - Fountains of Wayne

Zara Werid Power Top

Ah guys, theres so much stuff I want to address in this post but I literally don't have a clue where
 to start so please excuse the flirting from topic to topic as its gonna be one of those kinda posts where everything's kinda everywhere. . . .

To begin 

Theres something undeniably joyous about snagging an absolute bargain - I guess it makes up for all the times where I've just bought something and it goes in the sale for a fraction of the price, heart dropping, we've all been there. 

I've always been a little bit weird, my ideas, how I am, what I like, what I do, how I present myself, everything is just a little bit weird. As I've mentioned a thousand times before, in the past I've been a little scared to show it. After fully embracing the weird, I am 100% more comfortable in my own skin, I love embracing all things weird and wonderful and I fully encourage everyone else to do the same - to bring out their own bit of weird.

So obviously at the weekend when I saw this shirt I had to buy it cos:

1) It has ''weird power" across the front and is all kinds of wonderful

2) It was a freaking steal in the Zara sale [£3.99] which made me ecstatic as we've all established I like to keep to my Yorkshire roots and I'm a bit of a tight arse. . . . I also managed to pick up some more last minute January sale things from there that I can't wait to show you. 

3) It's got really really long sleeves, like stupidly over long sleeves that I'm kinda digging NGL

4) Its like a trio striped shirt of wonder that was defiantly made with me in mind


For now I styled it with my new wardrobe baes - my Missguided mega shredded jeans. I never thought I would ever describe a pair of jeans as one as my current faves, perhaps my jeans phobia is slowly but surely leaving, who knows?

Now the photos, cool right? They were taken by my very talented friend Jess, it was her fabulous idea to have a play with coloured smoke bombs, I particularly like that in some I look like I'm summoning the Dark Lord. Sytherin 4 lyf, that and I felt very much like I was recreating Paramore's Now music video, where Hayley's running though a battle field and there's all this crazy coloured smoke. Hayley obsession will never ever die. If any bloggers in the York/Leeds area are looking for a photographer, get in touch with Jess at Jessicamaeheadley@gmail.com

How are you going to embrace your inner weird ^_^?
