Feels like summertime

trousers - Topshop, t-shirt - UO, jumper - Topshop, boat shoes - Topshop jewellery all Topshop, sunnies - UO

I took this photo on my dad's camera as mine is dead and we have no batteries, wah wah wah.  It's a little too bright and a little out of focus because this is the best of the bunch!  I have no idea how to work it other than to press record to film videos :(

So I'm wearing this today and I think it looks really cute.  There is glorious sunshine outside so I decided to show off some colours!  Orange, pink & mint do it perfectly I think and the trousers tone it down perfectly but keep it bright and summery with the print and lightness off them.  I finished it off with my jewellery just to make it perfect!  The only bad thing is that you can see the pink top through my thin trousers but hopefully it's not too noticeable...

I wasn't sure that is was shorts weather so I went for these trousers that I got for my birthday a few days ago as you probably know if you've seen either of my last two posts.  They're prefect for summer; they're a light material and they're a floaty comfortable shape that lets your skin breath and soak up the heat without clingy to you.  I am a skinny jeans girl all the way so when I wear trouser I always wear skinny jeans or skinny tapered trouser or patterned leggins all that are tights fitting on my legs and show the shape so I'm surprised at myself for liking these as they do none of those thing, but nonetheless I adore them!  Maybe because they're so not me that they're me!  If you get me...?

I'm off to read a book in the garden as all my friends are busy with family or dancing...grr.  Going out later on with my boyfriend and maybe we'll go for a bike ride or something I don't know yet!  Although tomorrow should be a great day, I'm going out with my lovely friend Sasha then I'm going for a meal with all my friends in celebration of my birthday then we're going to sit on the beach or something so it will be lovely!  Post should be up monday maybe?

have a good day! xxx

Birthday Haul: in photos & quick OOTD

(T-shirt - Urban Outfitters, Riding pants - H&M, flatforms - H&M, necklace, bracelet & hair tie all Topshop)
Just a quick random outfit of what I wore to town today.  To note; my riding pants are rolled up way too high, they're too big (as you can tell as they have fallen down a little!  I've now decided to return them for a smaller size but when I tried the smaller size they weren't flattering so we'll see about that...), my t shirt is not tucking in properly and I didn't wear the flatforms when I went out!

Hello everyone, so this is my birthday haul!  I'm going to do it in order of gifts - from certain people in sections and then things I've bought though there isn't a lot I've bought yet.  I may do a video as well but that depends on if I can bring myself to use my old camera after using the fantastic piece of heaven I've been using for the past 2 days!

To start then!  Gifts from my parents.

Embelleshed sheer top - Miss Selfridge
Pyjama trousers - Topshop
Sequinned & sheer silk top - Topshop
sweatshirt t-shirt - Urban Outfitters
Studded Slippers - Topshop
Flatforms - H&M
All jewellery - Dorothy Perkins

Their presents also included my H&M riding pants but like I said above, I am going to return them, so I haven't photographed them here.

Family gifts (I mainly got money from family so there aren't an awful lot of presents)

Wasn't expecting the MAC stuff from my nan & grandad after they gave me my amazing new camera!  (it's xmas & birthday I was soo happy!  I was going to pay them)  It was so so generous along with the cute purse & a pair of sunnies they got me (couldn't find them to take a photo, sorry).  Then the broach is from my auntie & uncle along with some money they gave me, how cute is it?!

From the boyfriend!

All Topshop

I absolutely love all of these bits!  They were all in the sale; the shoes were only £7!  The last pair and they were in my size and fit perfectly.  It was meant to be!  I've wanted some for ages and the colour is just perfect, so so cute.  

& finally the things I bought myself despite there not being a lot...

Rapture by Lauren Kate - Waterstones
Dark Heart Surrender by Lee Monroe - Waterstones
ring - Miss Selfridge
Sunnies - UO
Jumper - Topshop
Soap & Glory products - Boots 3 for 2

I also got a yellow blazer from Toppers but it is a few sizes too big and I thought it would be ok but its not, so its going to get returned. So sad, its such a pretty colour. :'(  I also am aware that the books I read are cheesy teenage fiction but I'm okay to admit that and I don't care so whatever!

There should be a video up soon, so when it's up I'll attach it to this.  I hope you like everything I got, if you want and reviews please let me know and I hope you enjoy!

lots of love xx

Birthday Outfit

(Embellished sheer top - Miss Selfridge, Pyjama trouser/'informal joggers' - Topshop, pink neon bandeau - New Look, Studded slippers - Topshop, clutch bag - Zara, watch - Nan's, Buddha bracelet - Topshop)

Hello my lovelies!  So today is my birthday, woo hoo! So everything I'm wearing is a birthday gift apart from my watch, all my clothes & shoes are from my parents from out Bluewater spree along with my clutch bag which is from my auntie and uncle, I'm in love with it, its so cute!  I got lots of other little bits (including my new camera that I got all of the pictures on, it's so fab compared to what I'm used to!  Unfortunatley it doesn't record videos so I cant use it for my YouTube channel :( )

Just a few pictures of my afternoon!  My beautiful ladies came round then my boyfriend did too before I went out for a meal with my family, it was ever so lovely!  (Yes, I changed my top from the first photo with my friends!  & I didn't put my dad's face on as I'm sure he wouldn't want it on here!!) 
I will hopefully be doing a haul as soon as and getting it up on here for you so keep your eyes peeled!

What my hair actually ended up looking like after changing it lots of times!

I had a lovely day so thank you to everyone that wished me a happy birthday, I'm chuffed to bits with everything and I can't wait to get shopping and have the loveliest, best summer ever when we break up from school tomorrow!  

Hope you've all had great days, I know I have!  Spoilt rotten with gifts & cake!

Lots of love xxxxx
