Rinsing me down

Happy new year to you all! It's been 9 months since I started this blog all the way back in April, I can't make up my mind if April feels years or days ago. It's odd, when I started this blog I never really thought I would be able to stick with it, but as you can see I have and hope to in the coming year. Below are a few pictures from my past blog year that I think are of some significance!

My first ever outfit post

The first post I ever got comments on ha! (That weren't from my friends ha)

And one of my favourite thing's that have happened this year!

I hope everyone has a very happy new year!

Elephant gun

I hope everyone had a merry Christmas and got everything they wanted! I got some awesome presents that I love, including a Diana camera that I have been wanting for forever!

Here's the outfit I wore today to my friend Emilie's, the top I got yesterday during my trip to Brighton to browse the sales. Sorry I did try to take proper outfit photo's but the light was too bad and then the tripod broke and it all just went wrong haha. I actually love this top, it doesn't really look it but it's made of chiffony material (one of my favourites!) and it goes with everything, which a rarity in my wardrobe because I'm awful, I just buy something because I love it and don't think about if I actually have anything to wear it with, something I'm going to try and work on next year ha.

Top- Topshop, Lace skirt-Primark

Writing poems in your bed sit

So it's Christmas eve! Exciting stuff! I thought I'd post a vlog for you after really enjoying ones by Jazmine and Isabel. Sorry for rambling about how I like frisbee at the end, that was odd ha. (Sounds pretty quiet so you might have to turn your volume up, sorry)

Melt me down into big black armour

Two days till Christmas, exciting stuff! I've suddenly gained a few followers which is nice, hey new followers! I'm nearly up to fifty now, which compared to some blogs is nothing, but I'm proud of my 49 followers and I'm glad you follow ha!

Here's a recent purchase from one of my local charity shops for £4.50. The fabric's really nice and it has a great shape to it as well which unfortunately you can't really see in the pictures and also it has a collar, and I love a collar haa.

You're such a smiling sweetheart

So an awesome package came for me in the post today! Yep, the jumper I won from the lovely Rebecca of it's cohen. It is so comfy and warm which is good, because I'm in serious need of something warm in these treacherous conditions of 'the big freeze' ha. Also it has reindeer and snowflakes on it, can you get any more festive?! So once again thanks to Rebecca!
Got a bit overexcited about the jumper ha

Hey everyone (I seem incapable of starting a post without saying that). So it snowed here today but it wasn't very thick and really quickly turned to slush, which was depressing as I was going to go out and take photos in it. I'm currently panicking because I was meant to hand in my photography course work on Friday, I forgot. Never mind, I was going to fail anyway.

Please enjoy a picture of my Christmas tree. This turned up yesterday, my mum had ordered it and wouldn't tell anyone what it looked like. It's an upside down Christmas tree, obviously. Liking to be a bit different runs in the family it seems ha! It's grown on me though hah. Below is THE charity shop skirt, it was stuck in the corner of the shop and I saw some of the floaty material (I'm no good with knowing what type of material things are) and I'm a sucker for anything floaty so I couldn't help myself, it was only £4.75. I couldn't resist some twirling pictures in it haha, I plan to use it in some of my photography because I think the movement it creates is just awesome.

(Please ignore my 'I'm trying really hard to not fall over' face)

And the final piece of this unusually long post is what I wore today, this looks a lot more manly (is androgynous the word?) than my usual style but it's quite nice to dress like a cross between my grandad and a librarian once in a while!

Shirt- topshop, Jumper- Beyond retro, Trousers- Topshop
In retrospect I could have done all this in different posts but I'm no good at planning like that ha. I might do a vlog as I've seen some on other blogs and they were really interesting to watch. Massive post over. ha.

Whisper like it's a secret

Hey everyone, a post in the middle of the week, that's a novelty for you! Just wanted to jump on the bandwagon of showing you the kind of thing I'm hoping for for christmas (obviously not the ysl ring and Harvey Nichols dress ha). Please excuse my poor execution of these items, polyvore isn't one of my strong points ha. The tights are from Tabio
which I discovered on Streetstyle london and instantly fell in love with these star tights, they're pretty cool if you ask me. If I can I might even go as far as placing an order ha!

Sometime in this week I'll share the pictures of the awesome skirt I found in Winchester on Saturday, I'm completely enamoured with it ha. Just a brief post, what with it being a school night and all!

Below is what I wore yesterday to go do a little Christmas shopping with the family and my good friend Amelia. I'm currently watching Elf, quite possibly one of my favourite films EVER. Yesterday in Winchester I managed to track down an elusive vintage store that I saw a sign for then walked around for AGES trying to find. I also found the most awesome skirt in a charity shop that will feature on here soon I'm sure!

Dress- Zara, Blazer- Zara, Cardigan under blazer- Zara. Someone liked Zara that day didn't they!

The above outfit just might have been inspired by the below outfit worn by Florence of Florence and the machine. Okay maybe quite heavily inspired haha!
Only a week left of school till the Christmas festivities, yay!

His delusions find their way inside your head

Hello, how is everyone? It was unbelievably snowy here up until yesterday when I woke up it had just suddenly gone, so that was the end of that! I haven't really done anything over the past four days that I haven't been at school, I've perfect my sledging technique, decided that the Yule logs at costa are a little dry and I've just finished reading to kill a mocking bird. Only two snow photos, think yourself lucky!

This is what I wore yesterday to go watch harry potter about two weeks later than the rest of the world, I love a bit of harry potter. Not sure of this outfit works or not but I love this shirt and I love this skirt so I thought you know what, lets wear them together. I'll put the pictures that I took in the carpark with lan up soon, so look out for that, and I'll see if I can find anything else blogworthy ha.
