Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.

Spent the day out on the water again, this time a rowing boat. I went to the little antique stuff and camera shop again today. To the man I marry, I want a vintage ring, one with an oval sapphire with diamonds around it, not large stones, just small. I saw it in the shop today, £85. Thanks.

And I will find him sitting on my doorstep, waiting for the surprise

Right now I'm sat on my floor with a bottle of purple nail varnish half spilt on my floor and trying to think of ways to earn money for my shopping obsession with Lucy.

Yesterday I went up to London had a look around the topshop in oxford street with the beautiful fern. Words cannot describe how much I love that place. I want to own everything thing in there, but if I had to pick one it would be the most beautiful floral vintage scarf, which yes, I do need to own. Then we went off to Islington for a singing audition for a new sky programme, random I know, it's not that I really want to be a singer but I thought you know what why not. I didn't get a picture of my outfit yesterday, mainly because I had to get up at six to get the train. I know, horrific. So here's today's outfit

skirt- tk maxx £10, satchel- carboot £3.50

I'm obsessed with the mess that's America

Decision for what to wear for a singing audition in London tomorrow is killing me. And I have to wear my glasses because I've run out of contact lenses, I hate having to wear my glasses. AND I still don't know what I'm going to wear.

Why tell me one and then another when I know you love someone other.

Oh yes the sun is out, and so England breaks out the shorts and flip flops from the back of the cupboard. Being ever the cynic, I know the rains coming for us. Mark my words.

One week left of school until a week of freedom, then I have a week off for a sneeky trip to Spain, then a biology general certificate of secondary education then not long till the summer holidays! Oh yes.

So Sunday was so hot and now I'm a beautiful burnt red. I ended up at a car boot with the lovely,Atlanta & Jodie.

Sometimes I don't want to follow the crowd, with the social unrest

Thank the lord the sun is back at last. It's the younger brothers birthday tomorrow, this means that there is now 5ish 10 year old brats downstairs. Fun times.

Today I spent the day at my Grandmother and Grandfathers, (don't tell me how awesome I am) the rest of the family went to that wonderous land made out of multicoloured plastic known as Legoland with some of the brats. So we went over to Arundel and into a lovely vintagey store shoved full of old tea cups and jewellery and upstairs were the most beautiful vintage cameras. I want one now. I spent the rest of the day lounging in the sun and taking random pictures.
Dress- Topshop, £35.

Hope you all have a good rest of the weekend. I'll try to blog soon, depends if anything happens to me or not x

And I said hey, girl with one eye.

I want to blog. I have nothing to blog about.
I have no money so I can't buy anything. I'm having withdrawal symptoms I feel.
It's still cold.
I want to take pictures but I have no one to be in them and nowhere to take them.
Education is becoming a drag.

On the plus side I'm going to see Florence + the machine on Saturday at the apollo. Cannot wait. So here is a post Florence, I am in love with her style.
I love the nautical jacket so much!
Lace is one of my favourite things EVER at the moment.

So I hope to blog soon, probably won't be until after the concert on Saturday (eeeee). NO wait it might be Friday evening after our 'dragons den' day with the business department0 , its non uniform what can I say, I can't wait. So till then x

Deep in delusion sending me over

Weather still rubbish. It's somewhat depressing it's got to be said. So decided to go on a vintage mission, that failed. Went into two charity shops gave up haha. One day I WILL go to Brighton and I will do it properly, it's just pathetic here for vintage. This is what I wore for our outing, yes, I know you've seen the skirt before but I love it and my denim jacket. I live in that jacket.
I ended up leaving town with just a nail varnish, bright yet light blue and a pink but Fern's borrowing that at the mo. Oh and a milkshake. So a successful day I feel. ALTHOUGH on the way back I did get a free body shop lip gloss and balm and free chocolate and a free compeed blister patch! Free things always brighten a day x

Tell me the truth is it love or just paris?

Not too much has happened in my love that's particularly interesting. Just trying to think... umm nope haha x

The weathers been cold and damp and just in general horrible, it's not been pleasant. C'est la vie. So today I thought I would show you my favourite three things in my room at the moment

1. This is a music box my grandad made for me when I must have been like 7. Some of the picture of the rose has rubbed off but I still love it.
2. This is a mirror set that my grandad got my grandma as a present once years and years ago. And she gave them to me, she said she never liked them I don't understand how she couldn't, I love them the soft floral pattern and the lace.

3. This was an old plain jewellery box of my mums that I covered with odds and ends, the picture in the middle is of me and my cousin sat in my aunts old Volkswagen camper van.

Here are my shorts I destroyed. Not one of my favourite items in my room but I thought I would post about them anyway haha. They used to be knee length and minging. It was quite fun killing them but they are just slightly wonky down the back but no one will ever know!

My heart is yearning but paris is burning

Hello all, the weather was being lovely until Saturday when it decided to rain. I felt stupid wearing my sandals its got to be said. Right now I'm watching total wipeout, people falling over, its all you need. Maybe my life ambition should maybe be to feature on this program, how much fun?!

So seeing as I'm going on holiday with the family in June, I need summer clothes. Bring on the purchases.
White lace top-not a clue, Brown satchel- Primark £6.00, Floral shorts that look like a skirt but they arnt- Tk maxx- £12.99

Cream lace skirt- Primark £9.00, Belt- Mothers really old one so lets call that vintage, Purple cardigan- Primark, Black top- h&m. I'm having some trouble trying to find something to wear with this skirt because its an awkward shade of cream.

Jumpsuit- ZARA £30.00

So my school does the most stupid thing called 'super learning day' I know, it makes you want to gag at the sound of it. Usually these days consist of a whole day of maths in some dark classroom whilst everyone just sleeps. BUT this time to my surprise we were doing some half decent! We made vintage inspired dresses from newspaper. HEAVEN. So here is me and my friend lucys 50's newspaper dress...
If you don't get a post in a while its because Im busy 'revising' for the upcoming test tomorrow and Thursday. Byee x
