Take a walk.

(Right photo - having a Marilyn moment when the wind picked up!)

Cherry red velvet creepers - Doc Martens // Dungaree Dress - River Island // T-shirt - Olive // Necklaces - Primark, Ebay // Rings - Topshop, Gift, eBay, Primark.

I'm so happy to be getting back into putting outfits together and taking pictures, and sun was out today for me to take the photos! Yay! Hope you like them, this is my sort of go to outfit at the moment, cause it can be used for cold weather (just put some tights and a jacket over the top) as well as warm weather, so its really good for the ever-changing weather at the moment! I'm rather annoyed I didn't take a close up photograph of my shoes as they are my favourite shoes ever, so perfect, I love them! I'll have to include a close up picture soon! Also, the weather makes me want to listen to happy music so i've been listening to passion pit loads, listen to Take a Walk, honestly, it makes you want to be in a musical walking down a street with this music playing(well thats how I feel!)! I hope you like the post, give it a hype on lookbook if you like it, and comment down below what you think! I'm so grateful to all of you commenting and following, like i've said so much! Hopefully there will be some outfit posts to come soon!

Whatever I feel for you, you only seem to care about you.

Hello my lovlies, i've finished my exams until after the half term so I get a good break and a lot of time to revise for my final exam which is after the half term! I thought i'd stick in a quick post about some of my favourite lipsticks, as I am a big fan of lipsticks. I'm rather annoyed how some of the photographed though cause these lipsticks are really lovely in real life, but oh well!

1. Kate Moss Rimmel Lipstick in 113
I really do love this lipstick, its a lot more of nude in person though, but one thing thats annoying is that it doesn't seem to have the same matte feel that the other Kate Moss lipsticks do! Its still a lovely colour, a good one to wear out in the evening with a smokey eye. Its very pretty.

2. Kate Moss Rimmel Lipstick in 107
This is one of my all time favourite lipsticks and I am so annoyed about how it has photographed, as it has come out as a really bright red when in actual fact it has a little bit more of a purple tint to it. It is still a red, which is what I like about it a lot, so it can be worn as an everyday red lipstick, but can also be dressed up for going out in the evening. It also has a really matte finish to it and I use a lip brush to apply a coat first and then put the lipstick thicker on top and it lasts a very long time. 

3. Kate Moss Rimmel Lipstick in 110 
I really do like this lipstick, but I haven't really worn it out that much cause its rather bright. Its a coral-ly, pinky, red, orange, I don't really know how to describe it really! Its just quite a bright colour and again has the same matte finish as the 107. It is a nice colour, but its not greatly suited to my skin tone personally, and I didn't know this when i first bought it, as I am quite pale so it just kind of looks rather bright and garish on me.

4. Natural Collection Lipstick in Cherry Red
Okay, very cheap and cheerful but honestly this lipstick is great. And for only £1.99 you can't really go wrong! I really love this colour because it is a classic red and for a cheap lipstick it has really good staying power! This is my sort of 'every day' red lipstick. It is a lot more matte than i expected, and that is what i do like to find in a lipstick so i has a longer staying power. I've lusted over owning Macs Ruby Woo for ages now but this is a good alternative until I can bring myself to spend 14 pounds on a lipstick!

5. Revlon Lipstick in 010 Plum
This is one of my more daring lipsticks and I have only worn it a few times to a few parties I think. I do love it so much though, its a really deep purple (again, the photo doesn't do it justice) and looks really good and is a statement lipstick on someone with a pale complexion like me. I think I may bring this out for a few more parties over the summer months just to wear something different cause I do really love this colour.

And thats it! My lipstick 'collection' and I say collection lightly as its not really a collection! Oh well, I'd like to say this is my own personal opinion on these lipsticks and what i think of them, and I am not a make-up reviewer, so I apologise if i look like i don't really know what i'm on about!

Anyway, thank you for reading/following/commenting! It means an awful lot to me that you guys read my blog, and have followed to help me get back into the blogging world, let me know what type of posts you would like to see more of or maybe a post that I haven't really done yet but you would like to see! I love hearing what you all want me to post! Thanks everyone!

You don't have my number, we don't need each other now // Update

1.  Found an old candy stick tattoo in a drawer and had to put it on! 
2. Had a catch up with a good friend.
3. Red lipstick selfies before I ventured out into the pouring rain.
4. I proved i'm not a robot, but may have proven that i'm a demon?
5. Loving the new rings I bought from Topshop, this ones my new thumb ring and rarely leaves my thumb!
6. Bought my reading ticket!

Hello lovelies, strange day to do an update cause they normally come at the end of the week! Oh well, just thought i'd add in a quick post as I have had quite a few exams to revise for this week (i did two yesterday, although one was general studies so doesn't really count haha!) so i've just not had that much time to spare! I'll have an interesting post at the weekend and next week can be a good blogging week as i'm on half term and only have one exam left to revise for! Happy days. Anyway, i'm just looking forwards to the summer now, as i'm going to two festivals, and going to do loads of stuff with my friends, boyfriend and family, and NO COLLEGE. So so excited, anyway, better get back to revising, I have a psychology exam tomorrow, wish me luck! 

P.S. Thankyou so much to everyone who has followed and commented, I got some seriously lovely feedback on my last post! Keep following guys, I'm so extremely grateful!

Leave me at the altar, knowing all the things you just escaped.

Boots - Doc Martens // Tights - No idea! // Velvet skirt - eBay // Jumper - Next (its Mothers) 

I know its a very basic look, so I do apologise and there will be some more interesting outfit posts to come later, but for now I thought i'd use these photographs. These were actually taken by my boyfriend (as are the black and white shots, the one in my welcome post and the one in the side panel) for his Photography A Level, he's extremely talented, and you should check out his final piece he made, its a music video he created for the song Perth by Bon Iver (one of my all time favourite songs!). But yeah anyway, these photographs were taken when we were exploring, we found this really strange gratified place up by a reservoir near to where I live, and there were literally so many frogs! Like, i mean hundreds of frogs! I couldn't step anywhere without nearly stepping on a frog, it was so strange, but look at the photo of one of them getting a piggy back, nawww. But geting to and from and when you're actually at the reservoir, its very muddy and I needed something comfy and some practical shoes. Hence, boring outfit, but beautiful photos. It is incredibly beautiful up there, for my photography A2 I will probably venture up there to take some photographs so I will share some photographs at some point so you can see how pretty it is. Anyway, I hope you all have good weekends, i'll be sat in my room revising for my next exam on Monday, wish me luck guys!

P.S. Thankyou to anyone who has commented/followed or even had a look at my blog, I really appreciate you all supporting my new blog! Thanks guys and keep following and commenting, it means the world to me!

I'm bringing my sinking ship back to the shore.

Hello lovely people, welcome to my first real post of my new blog! Hope you guys enjoy it, I thought I'd do a haul, as I have bought a few new items lately. I went in to town to have a catch up with an old friend and we ended up just going shopping and buying new things! But surprisingly I didn't actually pay that much for all the new stuff I bought, (I did also buy a Topshop mesh crop top in town but it didn't photograph great, and a dress and a new jumper online) although too be honest I did buy quite a lot of stuff from Primark. Its actually so unlike me, I haven't been into Primark in AGES but my friend wanted to have a look for some jewellery and I found some real gems among the huge gold hoops and the rhinestone t-shirts. Anyway without further ado, information about my items!

001 // Topshop Rings
The first place we went had to be Topshop, I dont think any British girl can go shopping on the British high street and not go in topshop! Anyway, I found these lovely rings, and as a lover of silver rings and gemstones in rings, I had to get them. I am terrible at remembering prices but I think these were around 8 pounds? I'm unsure, but I do think thats pretty good for 3 rings in a set, and they are lovely. 

002 // Primark Hasma Hand Necklace
I told you I found some gems, I really love this I think its great! It looks really good quality and is a perfect length and looks really good with lots of different t-shirts and shirts. I think this was only 2 pounds, which is amazing for a necklace this lovely I think!

003 // Primark Stone Ring
Again, I think this is absolutely lovely, it is a bit large and I do like my rings smaller, but for £1.50 I could not leave this behind! I looks like something that Topshop may charge 4 pounds for so I thought I may as well buy it! It also fits in pretty well with my other rings I bought!

004 // Primark Two Pack of Belts
Nothing much to say about these really, except from I just needed some new belts and these were pretty nice and cheap!

005 // Primark Purse
Okay, anyone who is good friends with me, or has been shopping with me, knows I used to have the most horrendous purse ever. Its one my mum used to have and she just gave it to me. But its horrible. So after my friend in town telling me multiple times that I need to get a new purse, I decided to get one. But I am seriously not the type of girl to spend 20 pounds on a purse, because I just personally can't justify it. So this 5 pound one from Primark will do nicely!

006 // Natural Collection Blush in Peach Melba
After running out of my favourite blusher (Coralista by Benefit) I was a bit lost without it, so I needed a cheap filler, and I love natural collection, I have one of their red lipsticks which actually has a really good wearability! I think if your running low on cash they are a really good cheap alternative make-up brand!

007 // Supercat Soap and Glory Liquid Liner
I love Soap and Glory, but I don't have many of their products and quite frankly I don't know why! The products I have tried are such good quality and I cannot wait to go back to boots and purchase one of the scrubs, because it smelt absolutely amazing, I'll probably never use it, just smell it! Anyway, I'm difficult with liquid liners, I have tried every drugstore liquid liner there is, and i mean every single one. You name it, i've tried it. But I think I may have found my new favourite. Its like a pen that you just draw on your desired look and it dries in 2 seconds, which is a big thing with me and liners. I love it, I even slipped in a photo of how it looks, it comes out very black as well, which I love.

008 // Olive T-shirt
I think i'm slightly lucky to live in Cheltenham because we have the Olive store! Its lovely, so pretty and well thought out! Anyway, I picked up this basic t-shirt with long sleeves, its a really lovely fit and it was only 10 pounds. I always make an effort to go in and check out Olive for some nice stuff when i'm in town because it really is lovely in there.

009 // Primark Disco Pant Dupes
Okay, so forever I have wanted a pair of the American Apparel Disco Pants, as most bloggers do! But I have never really got around to buying them really. But I tried on these dupes the other day and they are literally identical to the american apparel ones. The american apparel ones are obviously better quality, but they still flatter me exactly the same, and for 16 pounds, i'm happier than paying 70 pounds! 

Anyway, sorry for the word heavy post, but I hope you liked my first post, and I will keep coming back with more posts! Thankyou to people who have followed or commented or had a look and liked my new blog its really exciting to have started a new blog and I'm enjoying it a lot already! Be back with more posts soon!
