this blog has become a little crap. what with the weather, work, school and ultimately my lack of camera and free-time, all i ever feel like now is cuddling up on the sofa with a cup of tea and a movie. blogging is one of those things that you can start to hate very quickly if it becomes a chore, and i hate hate HATE it when people post stuff just to post stuff (you get me?). so to sum up this very long and pointless essay.. bare with me guys!
jan 18th 2011 marks my first day of total relaxation and after that, it will be back to normality :)
okay, so I don't know whether it's because they're beautiful,or whether i've just turned boring (probs the latter) but how much are you loving all these sheer black dresses?!
i definitely need them all. too bad my 'cart' costs $585, and these are just the essentials :(
and i know the romper isn't black, but i really need that aswell. eventhough the temp these days is like -4. ugh, england.
p.s - everything is from www.shopnastygirl.com.
(my holy grail)
p.p.s - sorry all the images are like sliding off the page ( i don't know how to fix it!) but everything is in view so it's fine, and just click the image to enlarge, woo
I really need to start saving if I want to get my hands on any of the Lanvin for H&M collection which comes out in less than 2 weeks, gasp!
Those two gorgeouusss gold dresses peeping out really remind me of Emma Watson's Burberry beauty at last years LFW:
too bad they're expected to cost like £90 :( whyyyy god, why?
check out a sneak peek video of the collection here: http://www.hm.com/gb/fashionvideo with Joe Zee from The City. LOVE HIM! i'm not so sure about that ruched floral dress though, ew, right?
hey i'm back! went to cornwall which was good, eventhough it rained for like 3/4 of the trip :( and then i came home and got my results! at first i was like, maybe its abit rude to post my results on here, but then everyone on facebook was doing it, and i realised how much i love noseying around and seeing what everyone else got, so yeah, i decide to post them:) i got 2 A*s in media and eng lit, 8 A's in art (yesss, all my all-nighters staying up to finish my sketchbook paid off:P), both sciences, eng lang, geog, german, maths + re, and then a B in ict! i was so positive i would rip open the envelope to find 11 D's, so was actually gasping for air when it actually turned out good:) how did you guys all do? :) also ive defo got hayfever, i sneeze like 40 times a day. not even exagerrating.
so sorry i've been gone so long! summer has just been, well, summer ha ha, but i'm back now (for a week) with some super beauties to share with you, yay! eg - THESE from nastygal.com. defo my fave fashion hotspot :) not sure whether i could pull off those peach,high-waisted shorts or the sheer raglan thing, but i would grab it all in an instant if i had a money tree:P
i'm peniless with a craving to shop right now and so tomorrow (or sometime this week, at least) i might give in and go job hunting. summer this year has just been so, well, amazing, but i'm so much in debt to my 12-year-old sister right now (how is it fair that she has so much money?) i think its finally time i went to try and find an income. had a picnic today, woo! it was really cosy+cute and the ultimate epitome of how summer should be! i'll add pics when they get put on fb. (i seriously need a new camera.) how are all you guys' summers going?:))
in the 'silver' hummer (which turned out to be hot pink!) shoes in good view ahaa me and my mature friends .. so this is what i wore to prom 2 nights ago! sorry about the limited pics, theres basically like 100 identical pictures taken in the space of 5 minutes, and then like nothing for the rest of the night![click pics to enlarge btw] my dress was pretty average but my shoes were on a whole new level of amazing! (modest, i know :P)
- high street store: topshop, obvs. - designer: alexander wang! - model: hmm, i'm not really a big 'model' girl, but i do like the obvious' such as sasha pivovarova + gemma ward:) and also miranda kerr but only because she's engaged to orlando bloom hahaa! - celeb style icon: defo rachel bilson, blake lively, emma watson, alexa chung, mk+ash, whitney port - LOTS basically! - colour(s) to wear: black+white! but not together if that makes sense? i'm also getting really into nudes this season, however dodgy that sounds! - 'trend' right now: those wedge shoes and braided hair - item of clothing you own: all my snuggly hoodies! and my gorgeous bag which i take everywhere atm - clothing on the opposite sex: i like the whole 'indie' style in general, and skinny suits+ties = yum - what would you never be caught dead in: LYCRA. - how many clothes are in your wardrobe? ohhh god, i am SUCH a hoarder. my wardrobe isnt even in my room anymore because it doesnt all fit! - what was the last fashion-related item you bought + how much did it cost? i cant even remember! it was probably off ebay, though:p oh wait actually, yesterday i bought some flower clip thingys from H&M for £2, woo exciting! - if you owned a fashion label, what would it be called? (i went abit crazy on this one - beware.) i like the whole 'one word' names, plus when its in french it just sounds so much more exciting, so i would probs call it 'intrépide' which, (according to google translate) means 'fearless' en francais! i really like it actually, its really fluid and just like, slips off the tongue! (yeah i know, im reallllly cool:P ) - would you say you followed trends? not really! if i like something, i'll buy it, but i don't buy stuff just to get in on the trends. if anything, i like to arrive to places looking a bit more original then everyone else in their leggings and crop tops!
edit: i made this myself but anyone is free to use it:)
ok, so i know half of you are probs really un-interested in the whole 'twilight' thing, and i always try and pretend to be all casual and 'ohh yeah twilight, quite a good film,' but secrely, I LOVE IT! went to one of the previews yesters and eclipse is, hands down, one of the best films this year. eventhough i am definately NOT team bella, and cant handle how annoying the books are, it really doesnt get much better than 2 hours worth of the big-screen beautys: taylor + rpattz, hahaa. and i actually found this film really hilarious, too. usually theyre all depressing and just pissed off 24/7 but this one really made me laugh! also, sorry about the lazy pic to go with this, but ive been kindof ill recently and i also think its really cute:P
I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together, in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was hurricane.
firstly, sorry for the mass posting these past few days (its half term and i have no life, so what else am i going to do?) and secondly... HOW AMAZING ARE THESE SHOES?! answer: very. and okay, so i know i said i hated clogs and that they were a crime to fashion, but shoot me; these are insane. and so what if i got into a little debt buying them? i managed to get a decent £20 off my order with the help of some googled promotion codes and sneaking my sisters student card number while she was out (ssh) totally worth it in my opinion
also! last day of school was actually so emotional! i will never forget some of the incredible people + moments and this really is like, the end of an amazing era! CLASS OF 2010 WOOOO♥♥♥♥♥ ^ im in the green top btw, wearing a nude bodycon skirt, which is now in the freezer due to a little incident with some chewing gum hahaa, oops! and if youre reading this - thankyou katie for saving me that day! don't know what i'd do without you!:))
is the last day EVER of school im gonna miss everyone so incredibly, and these have defo been some of the best years of my life! cant actually believe its all gone so fast and after this, everything changes, FOREVER ahhhh scary! but so exciting :)
just finished reading this, like literally a second ago, and it has definitely lived up to my expectations! in a week compacted with exams, i still managed to stay up extra late to squeeze in reading this - its basically a big guide full of crazily amazing pictures, interviews and insights into the fashion world! perfect for practiallly any of my followers; 'experts' of the industry enlist their top tips for getting your foot into the door of fashion! yea this post is a little over the top soz, but free advice of the day: GO BUT IT ! (although it probs sounds like it due to my OTT-ness up there, im not actually being paid for this, haa!)
so.. its exam time again, woo! (or not) and so that means, a lot of procrastinating on ebay. just thought i'd include a few of my purchases so that i dont bore you with another 'i hate school' rant. you got off lucky this time, ahaa okay so im not that disgusting, this is actually from accessorize, but just thought id show it off anyway cos its just too pretty. is it just me, or does the model in this really remind you of jesus? ahh my new ultimate accessory! goes with everything and always looks b-e-a-utiful
so i came on to blogger today and the first thing i did was check the news feed, like always. scrolling through almost every single post i realised, we're all quite happy to list and lust over all the exciting new dresses and shoes we've found this week, but we never really discuss the most important pieces of clothing we own. instead, they lie (in most cases, atleast) scrunched up along our bedroom floor, or strewn across that chair in the corner. what about those go-to jeans that always make you look a little bit skinnier than you really are, or that expensive leather jacket that has stuck by your side throughout the entire winter, glamming up even the laziest of outfits? for me, it has got to be the jeans. theyre getting so worn out these days, it scares me to even put them on, as the seams are becoming looser by the day, and im freaked at the idea that i'll jut be walking around town and they'll just rip open. they go with anything, and always ensure compliments. but they were also bought from ebay 3 years ago and so are well and truly, irreplacable. what about you guys? tell me your neglected clothing bffs!
hi:) kind of sorted on the prom dress front now, horaaaay! and although it hasnt actually arrvied yet, i thought i'd show you anyways cos im just that kind ahah: okay so its really simple and boring, but totes re-wearable and OTT was never really my style anyways. plus, it was a total steal at just £35! what a barg! feet-wise, im going for these beauties (but in black, ofcourse): which i am absoloutely in love with and will from now on, be wearing for the rest of my life. if anyone else has posts on their prom, comment with links to your sites guys!
OMGOMGOMG! gossip girl&miss selfridge collab is totally out today and yeah, you guessed it: i need everything. (well apart from the gross leopard print maxi dress which i would never spend £59 on like, ever, but whatever). i guess some people might like looking like a massive curtain or safari animal. find the exclusive online preview here: http://www.missselfridge.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?beginIndex=0&catalogId=20555&storeId=12554&categoryId=206550&parent_category_rn=206549&langId=-1&top=Y&cmpid=nl_w35_260410_gossip1
this video had me in hysterics! not only am i insanely jealous of those two kids for getting an exclusive preview of the theme park, but they also got to hang out with ellen for the day life = very unfair
promprompromprom ahhh! attempting to find the perfect prom dress is turning out almost impossible right now, this one is my dream: but everything ive found thats similar (and waay cheaper) to it online, seems to either be a borderline wedding dress or come in a sickly hot pink. apart from this: which is totally cute, but in the colour "pewter", really? ew gross no.
attempted to customize this whole thing, and although i spent like 3 hours sorting it all, i still hate it. too tacky? and how do i get rid of all these ads?!? half term: all this free time has got me thinking. we're always told to study hard/be healthy/save money/dress a certain way, but dont you see the irony? instead, why not try doing what makes you happy, not wasting away your life trying to please others or conform to the 'right' way, and if it all goes wrong, at least you'll have great memories to fall back on .
why is everyone loving clogs at the moment? theyre so gross! they remind me of grandads and crocs and cant exactly be comfy to wear? the heels on those things are like 3 stone of solid wood! sorry, i just dont get it?
- i am tired beyond belief - facebook is the worlds biggest distraction - my 'work-snacks' dont appear to be stopping anytime soon, and typing takes up two hands - itunes is leading me astray.
finding the perfect work-playlist is very almost impossible. my mood is switched every 3 mins in parallel with the next song, and favourites like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LE1Bd_wX1M are really bringing me down. i'm so tempted to create a collection of motivating tunes right now, but it will probs end up very similar to my 'exercise playlist' where i spent more time choosing good songs, than i ever did exercising.
sooo a week ago, (yep this is a tad late) me and my friends went down to london for a picnic, but we ended up eating on the tube in the end bcos the weather was so crappy!:( heres some pics from the day (hopefully you can click them to enlarge) :) anyways, since then its been a week of major stress (german orals ahh!) until this weekend when i could finally relax and went and saw the bounty hunter + shutter island (which everyone thinks is crap and confusing but i thought it was aaaaa-mazing!) ok byeeee
so a new h&m just opened in town today, so after school i went in to check it out. now this thing is major huge! we all knew it was gonna be big because it took the place of an m&s, but walking around it, just feels like narnia; its never-ending! i still had a giftcard left over from christmas/my bday for £30 (totally thought it was £20 and was like screaming when i discovered it was actually ten pounds more) and ended up spending like 45 quidos there, ooppsies haha. so much for a quick browse after school. ohwell whatever, i got some essentials. for example, this do-i-like-it/do-i-not grecian dress thingy. possibly gonna wear that for my bday picnic on sat, but not sure what with? leather jacket would look quite good, butttt i dont wanna cover the embellishment because i just look like mary (jesus' mum hahah) IDEAS?
okay so its pretty obvious im an internet addict by now, and so i decided to put together a little list of my favourite, less well-known sites for anyone that wants to check them out:) :
www.rokit.co.uk - anything 80's inspired is stocked here, from crazy blazers to those cute jock jackets. it's all oh so retro, real vintage and although some of it is more grandad than glam, its defo worth a look.
http://www.shopnastygal.com - seriously incredible pieces, in effortless yet unique styles. long, studded scarf anyone? how about an ahh-mazing peace tank? or maybe a nude, lace slip-dress a la blair waldorf? okay, so its not the most affordable line ever, but in my eyes, definately one of the best.
www.nordstrom.com - showcasing some of probably, the cutest jewellery i have ever seen, nordstrom is fast becoming popular with top celeb beauties including lindsay lohan, rihanna and miranda cosgrove (yes, that girl off icarly haha!). infact, even fergie is set to launch a new footwear collection there!
right now: - my skin is so dry. damn you, winter - orange keep adding stupid stuff to my phone bill and i need to call them up but im too scared hha - i got into college:) - i should be doing an essay right now. so far i've writtent the title - i definately need to stop eating so much crap - its my birthday in a week:D that its for now guys, byeeeeeee
breaking into the heart tights! sorry about the really bad photo but i just really cba to take another:))
oh and, HAPPY VALENTINES DAY GUYS ! i saw the movie tonight aswell, and omgosh it was insane! i am defo getting it on dvd, because then i wont have to deal with retarded 12 year olds kicking at my chair througout the film, grrrr hha
and anyone that knows me irl will know that i hate practically every film ending but this one, i actually really loved! everything was just exposed and i left the cinema feeling totally happy it was greaaaaaaaaat hha
woke up today to discover a thick new coating of snow across my garden, and decided not to go to school cos there was like major power failures and crashes everywhere so instead i decided to stay home and finish my coursework. good decision tbh, because my bus couldn't brake so tipped over down a hill. : wow, freaky or what?
