"On Wednesdays we wear pink"


Sorry for the lack of posts recently, I've been super ill and not really had the energy to do anything! Plus this awful weather hasn't helped!

It finally stopped raining for five minutes today, which gave me a chance to take some OOTD photos. I got this amazing pink coat a couple of weeks ago, but am only just getting round to including it on my blog. I'm normally not one to go for such a bright coloured coat, but I was browsing Boohoo one evening and spotted this beauty and just HAD to have it! I love boyfriend style coats and I wear my grey Topshop one religiously, so I thought I'd have a change and step out of my comfort zone a bit and buy this one. It was originally around £40, but I used the student discount so it was a little cheaper. I was a little apprehensive of spending that as it's almost my week's wages! But it was definitely worth it; it's such good quality and is perfect for winter and spring, especially when spring is as cold as it is in England!

I styled this jacket with a black, textured (not clear in the photo haha!) jumper from Pull and Bear and this black and white checked skirt from Select. Now Select isn't usually a shop I'd go to, but I have one in my town centre, and while I was walking past one day, I saw a couple of things I liked in the window and decided to have a look. Turns out, there are some really nice things in there! I ended up buying this skirt for £12 and a kimono jacket for £18. I got my jumper in the sale and it was reduced to £10.

My shoes are my favourite Chelsea boots from H&M. I am in serious need of a new pair as I have worn these to death! And my bag is from Primark. 

See you again soon!

Hi lovelies!

My 17th Birthday is just under two months away, and my family are asking for a wishlist, so I thought this would be fun way to show some of the things that are on my list! (I think I must be the only almost-17-year-old who doesn't want driving lessons!)


1. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera: I saw these ages ago and wanted one ever since; the small size is adorable and makes it so easy to carry around. Plus the instant pictures are just great for parties, scrapbooking and making easy memories.

2. Beacon Hills Lacrosse Hoodie: I am OBSESSED with the TV show Teen Wolf, I could go as far as to say it's my favourite show I watch! And Isaac Lahey is my favourite character, so this hoodie is perfect for me!

3. Fluffy Topshop Jumper: I'v been wanting a staple black jumper for a while now as it will go with so many items of clothing. I love the fluffy texture that's quite in at the moment, and this jumper from Topshop is just gorgeous! I've looked at some from other shops, but none of them seem quite as nice as this one. I know that jumpers aren't really a spring item, but when you live in England, they definitely are!

4. Amethyst Crystal Necklace: The beautiful necklace is from Dolly Bow Bow. I love the vintage feel and the amazing colours. This is just one of the many items on the website that I loved. If you're into quirky jewellery, you'll love this shop! 

5. Real Techniques Brushes: I am awful with brushes; I will literally get the cheapest one that will get the job done, but the downside to this, is that they're never the best quality. So I thought I'd ask for some brushes which get good reviews and give them a try.

7. Oh My Love Playsuit: I am a big fan of Oh My Love. Their clothes are beautiful and so different. I love this playsuit as I don't really own anything like it. I feel like it's great for a party or a dinner. The design is so elegant and the grey means that it can be matched with a variety of other colours.

8. Naked 3 Palette: I know, I know, I am so behind with this one! But when I first came out, it sold out everywhere and I had no money because of Christmas! But better late than never eh?

9. Eleanor & Park: I've heard great things about this book, so I'm desperate to read it!

10. Will Grayson, Will Grayson: I love both John Green and David Levithan's books, so the fact that they've teamed up is perfect. Again, I've heard such good reviews about this book!

Well there you go, some of the things that are on my birthday list! I've linked up all of the items incase you wanted to get them for yourself. 

See you soon!

Some Photos

Hello lovelies!

It's been a little while since I posted, but the weather has been horrendous! Not the sort of weather for OOTD pictures! But fingers crossed, it will brighten up soon, which means more blog posts! Hooray!

I bought some new beauty products a couple of days ago, most of which are skin care, so I'm thinking of doing some reviews next week. That way, I can get a good feel of the products and see if they've made any difference before I actually review them.

I thought I'd make a quick post until then, just so my blog isn't completely dead! I am quite into photography, and I love taking pictures, but other than post some on Instagram, I never know what to do with the pictures I take. So I thought, considering this is also a lifestyle blog, I'll post some of my work on here! I'm going to try make more of an effort this year to take a camera with me wherever I go, as I never really have time any more to just go out with the purpose of taking pictures. Now I have a proper blog, where I can post about my life, I will hopefully be more encouraged to take some photos. Photography is something I really enjoy, and now I have lots of excuses to take loads of photos! I vary with what I use; some are taken with my phone, some with a digital camera and some with an SLR. Here are a couple of random ones that I've taken in the past couple of years, enjoy!
