A Month in Photos - March


I thought I would do a sort of round up of the month in photo form, I have always liked instagram posts because I'm just plain old nosey annnnd it's nice to look back and see what's been poppin' throughout the month.

1. Me... Posing. 2. A close up of Yogi's nose. 3. Afternoon of doodles 4. World's creepiest
face mask/Gimp mask. 5. Carrot cake cupcakes. 6.Teaching the bf how to bake. 7.Friday night essentials. 8. NOTD - Barry M Lychee and Models Own Dancing Queen. 9. Jesus' trendy new haircut. 10. Far too drunk with my best one. 11. Before being far too drunk with my best one. 12. Boyf's new tap penis. 13. CUTEST PICTURE OF YOGI EVAAA. 14. A jar of tentacles - vom. 15. The height difference between Idle and I. 16. A tiny wheely bin that is now my makeup brush holder.
Overall March has been a pretty good month! I started something that should hopefully lead to something good career-wise, had some banging nights out with my girls annnnd booked a holiday with my lovely boyfriend. Fingers crossed April lives up to something good. Hope you have all had a good month and have a lovely Easter!

Hat - Dorothy Perkins
Tshirt - Ebay
Skirt - Asos
Shirt - Internacionale
Creepers - Primark
Watch - Michael Kors
Hope you're having a good week peeps? This week has been such a slow burner, since Tuesday it has felt like it should have been Friday! I wore this when I went out yesterday to run some errands... and of course I ended up at the pub in the evening (everyone of these outfit posts has included the pub/alcohol... awkward). I bought the tshirt and shirt this week, I needed to buy things to put me in a better mood - it didn't work. But yeahhhhh, I love my 'Feline Meow' tshirt, it's a rip off of the 'Celine' tshirt's that everyone in the world owns... although I would quite like one myself. It was only £7.99 on Ebay, with free delivery as well so it was a right bargain! I'm quite excited for the long weekend and Easter, I'm going out tonight with my boyfriend for some cocktails in Nottingham. LONG ISLAND ICE TEA GET DOWN MY NECK.
I have waffled long enough! Hope you all have a great bank holiday weekend and if you can't be good, be careful!

The Basics

This is just a little post about my everyday makeup. I am one of those people that tend to not leave the house with out makeup on (what a sorry life I lead), although I can give or take the eyeliner and lipstick. ANYWAY!
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation Sample - Ecru
Mac Pressed/Select Sheer - NW15
Benefit Pink Family Top Blusher
Rimmel Match Perfection 2 in 1 Concealer and Highlighter - 010 Ivory
Collection Concealer - Natural 2
Ecotools Stippling Brush
Barbara Daly Blusher Brush
Eyelure Eyebrow Pencil - Dark to Medium
Collection Liquid Eyeliner
Rimmel Lipstick - 170 Alarm

I went into town recently and my friends bullied talked me into getting matched up for the Double Wear Estee Lauder foundation to get a sample. I was dead against it because I would never spend £27 on a foundation, but OH MY GOD. Best foundation ever. I have a hard time with foundation as it is because my skin tends to be quite dry so this is just a revelation. I know my friends are gonna read this, so I apologise... I will be buying it when I get some dollar... you guys where right. Its really good coverage and I still feel like my skin can breath! I also bought the Collection concealer for around my eyes, I get the world's worst bags/dark circles underneath my eyes and so far I am pretty impressed with it. It seems to be doing the job I intended it to and it was cheapy cheap so I can't complain. I'm not going to go into detail about everything I use because I obviously love it all otherwise I wouldn't be using it everyday! But these are my basics, I would be lost without them.

Please enjoy this extremely close up picture of my face.

March Wishlist - Part Deux

1. Atlas Watch - Urban Outfitters £26
2. Line Up the Bitches Tshirt - Michael Agwunobi £39
3. Lipstick in Biguiled - Topshop £8
4. Flatforms - River Island £45
5. Belt - River Island £15
6. Animal Earrings - Topshop £8.50
7. Denim Jacket - River Island £50

I had planned to do a wishlist once a month.. seems that isn't happening then! I have seen waaaaay too many things I want, highly depressing let me tell you.
1. I already have my Michael Kors watch but I feel too frightened to wear it, so it's now my special occassion watch. I have wanted an 'every day' watch for ages and I have been wearing a Casio watch that doesn't work that my friend Lauren kindly gave me. This atlas watch would be purrrrrrfect, and it has got a pretty face.
2. So everyone in the blogger world has a Celine tshirt it seems, BUT LOOK AT THIS ONE!! I mean I might be extremely slow off the mark and this might have been around for ages, but I saw it crop up on Tumblr a few days ago and I hunted it down. I really, really love it, but the price is pretty steep so I am going to wait and try and hunt it down on Ebay for cheapy cheaps.
3. I went into town last week to specifically get a Topshop lipstick because I had a gift card and I ended up coming out with the most boring, plain browny colour known to man. I looked at 'beguiled' whilst I was there and talked myself out of buying it, idiot. This WILL be the next one I buy, it's such a nice shade.
4. I am currently stuck in a rut shoe-wise, I seem to only wear my trusty black boots every time I go on a night out at the minute. Being 5'11 I refuse to go out in flats or kitten heels - ew - and I can't wear platform heels or anything too high as my friends are mainly all midgets (love you guyzzzz). So I have started to wear flatforms, when they first came about I stayed well clear because I thought they would be really unflattering but what a revelation! They are now my new favourite and I NEED these, how are nice are they though? I will not hear a bad word said about them.
5. I already have this belt with 'hollaback' written across it, I have worn it to death and I only got it for Christmas. I have now seen this one and I have to have this too, I have no explanation why... I just have to have it.
6. I desperately need some studs as all of mine seem to have done a disappearing act. I stupidly decided to get three more piercings in one ear when I was about 16-17 and I have been at a stud shortage ever since. These earrings are so cute, who wouldn't want an elephant and a little fat dog in their ear? Come onnnnnnn.
7. I need a new jacket. I wear my blazer and leather jacket all the time and I want a new addition to the jacket family. I have been on the hunt for a denim jacket, but more of an over sized fit than a cropped one. So far the only half decent ones I have seen have been on Ebay and have always sold before I have the money to buy them. I came across this a few days ago and it's a military style jacket so it will be over sized annnd it's quite long which is a bonus. I really like all the little details on the pockets and down the zip hem.
That was some heavy reading, congrats if you actually made it to the end!

Dress - Internacionale
Chelsea Boots - Quiz
Watch - Casio
First off I would just like to apologise for the lack of posts recently, I'm putting it down to starting a volunteering job/not being bothered. My baaaad. Secondly I would like to apologise for my arms in this picture, it's the best of a bad bunch and quite frankly I couldn't be bothered to take more pictures because it started to rain. Anyway, apologies out of the way, this is the dress I recently featured in my March Wishlist. I wore this dress on Saturday when I went for a night out with my gally's, one too many drinks were had and it's safe to say I definitely did NOT look like this when I rolled into bed at 3am.


I think these pictures pretty much sum up the night, I may or may not have stolen them from Idle and JoJo. I can't be trusted with a phone on a night out as I have been known to lose a phone... or five, so I canny take pictures.
Hope you're all having a great week so far! I have got a post planned for Thursday as it's my day off so watch out y'all.

Nails... bro

Just a quick nail post, I have been wanting to do another outfit post for a few days but the weather here has been horrific and I didn't fancy standing outside in the rain/sleet/snow to be honest. Anywho!
Topshop Eclipse - £6.00
Barry M Lychee - £3.99
I felt like it was time to update my nail varnish collection, I currently HATE all of my nail varnish and I keep using the same dark blue MAC colour every time I paint my nails. I bought these two on Friday when I went into to town with my friend Lauren and they were both free WOOOO!! The Topshop one was bought with a gift card I had at the back of my purse and the Barry M Gelly polish was bought using my Boots advantage card points. Apologies in advance for the crap pictures/nail painting technique!
Topshop Eclipse
I have been lusting after this Topshop nail varnish for a couple of weeks, I featured it on my March Wishlist last week. I loooooved the colour of this on the bottle but no matter how many coats I put on it just stayed a gold colour and didn't really shine a blue/green like I thought it would. I still love the colour and it has stayed on really well with no chipping after a few days. I'm glad I didn't pay for it though, £6.00 for a nail varnish seems a bit steep to me (such a cheapskate!).
Barry M Lychee

I LOVE THIS NAIL VARNISH, there isn't much else to say really other than this is perfectionnnnn. I have wanted a nude colour for a while but I'm fussy and they have either been too pink or too brown. But this - oh my gawd - is my favourite colour ever. I can already envisage myself being obsessed and wearing it to death. 
Anyway, that's all from me!

March Wishlist

1. Acid Wash Polo Crop Top - Newlook - £9.99
2. Satchel - Ebay - £22.95
3. 'Eclipse' Nail Polish - Topshop - £6.00
4. Chunky Necklace - Newlook - £6.99
5. Skater Skirt - Topshop - £25.00
6. Aztec Skater Dress - Internacionale - £12.99
1. I lurrrrrrve this crop top! I've always been a bit cautious of polo necks, especially those with no sleeves because I'm quite broad. HOWEVER, it's a revelation! I recently bought a white one from New Look and it's my new favourite top, this one would be a nice little addition to my top family.
2. Be still my beating heart, I have been lusting after this bag since I saw it on VIPXO's weekly Ebay post. I don't know what's wrong with me because usually I don't like any kind of girly colours... but I need it, now.
3. I'm in a nail polish rut, recently I have found myself hating my whole collection. This is the first colour I have seen in quite a while where I felt like I needed it in my life and on my nails alwaysss.
4. If you know me, you know I like a nice chunky gold chain - the chavvier the better. My favourite one has gone kind of tarnished and it's breaking my heart. I think it's time to move on and buy this one because it's so much nicer anyway!
5. This skirt is called a 'blanket skirt' (yeah, i have no idea either). If you look at the close up of it on the Topshop website it seems like it is a woolly material. I'm sick of wearing black skater skirts all the time, soooo I'm branching out to grey - how adventurous.
6. I actually ordered this dress last night, I have been looking at it on the website for a few weeks and have become more and more obsessed with it. If it arrives and it's hideous I'm going to throw it at someone. Serious.

I have just realised I have waffled on quiiiite a bit, my bad guyz. Anyway, if anyone I know happens to see this post, BUY ME DEEZ TINGZ. See ya!

It seems the second OOTD post was just as awkward to photograph as the first, I made my boyfriend take some pictures of me because David Bailey (my mum) was at work. After him telling me 'put your leg on the wall' I called it a day... roll on payday so I can buy a tripod!

Jacket - Dorothy Perkins
Dress - Matalan
Belt - River Island
Flatform Boots - River Island

Cheeky little photo of Yogi

I wore this yesterday when I went on the warpath with my boyfriend to try and get my phone working again, it hasn't been working for a WHOLE month and I was getting to the point where I was about to rip someones face off at Orange. Finally a nice little man on a market stall in Mansfield fixed it for a tenner, top boi. After the whole phone drama we went to the pub (seems as though I live there) for some food and a stiff drink.
I feel like I'm kind of getting the hang of how this whole blog thing works now and I want to start updating more regularly so expect big things!! (jokes).

Anyway, I will leave you with this beautiful picture of me and my boyfriend Tom - Ciao!

So this is my first outfit post, I can honestly say it was the most awkward time of my life standing there with my mum taking pictures of me whilst she was pretending to be David Bailey. I need some kind of tripod asap because I don't think I can deal with my mum shouting 'work it for the camera' again.

I wore this the other day when I went to town to keep my friend Lauren company whilst she went on a tonk shopping spree (most depressing time of my life, zero dollar and all that). Finally after we spent what felt like an hour in Superdrug we went to meet the rest of our friends at the pub and I think I got tipsy after one dirty pint - classy bird/lightweight.
