Topshop Modern Nights

I don't own these images.
I'm sure I mentioned on one of my latest posts how I'm into simple pieces at the moment because I think if they are well put together it can make such a statement. Sometimes there is no need for mad prints or a big frilly necklace or whatever.

Out with the new, in with the old

Manchester Vintage Kilo Sale 


Never have I ever shopped like this before. Today I went to a vintage kilo sale with Ellesse. It was one of Judy's Affordable Vintage Fairs, I've never been to one before and it seemed like fun so I thought I'd try it out. So of I made Ellesse get up at half 7 on a nice sunny saturday morning because we had to get the bus there. We ended up getting there late because we couldn't find the place (it was held at the people's history museum in Manchester)! The satnav on my phone was playing up so we got directions of someone who was going to the same place.

A bad hair day is a perfect hat day!

Finally, the sun decided to come out in Manchester but I'm still wearing the chunkiest cardigan I own. Also I'm wearing a crop top which is very unusual as I've never worn one before.

The Rodnik Band x Peanut



Photos are by Andrew Farrar.


The ever so popular comic strip has teamed up with The Rodnik Band. The collection is ever so fun and playful as you would expect from this british based label. You know the characters such as Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the characters have decided to make an appearance.

I might have been to young to have been able to experience the comic strip when it was in its prime but I sure do have read it afterwards. The collaboration has given those a chance to get back in touch with their youth or embrace it. Nothing better than bright colours and pop art prints which first came to fame in the 50s to liven up your wardrobe. The prices range from 29£ to 300£.

These clothes will be available to you in selected stores from september.

Duke of Edinburgh Practice walk

Bronze Award

My group before the first walk.






































Wow. I can't believe I actually lost weight doing this walk. I lost about two and a half pounds... I think; I'm not too sure what the small lines on my scale mean. This was only a practise and I'm not going to lie it is hard. We walked 15 miles up and down hills over the course of two days (eight miles on saturday and seven miles on sunday), carrying a massive bag with all our clothes, a stove, food and parts of a tent. The thing is we went the wrong away a couple of times so we probably added an extra mile onto our trip. Map reading is harder than you think.

During these two days I saw a dead lamb with no eyes... rip; walked up a really steep hill; stood in cow poo and almost cried because we walked through a field with bulls in. I have the biggest fear of cows because I got chased by one when I was little. They kept staring at us and doing that thing when they move their leg back, I thought they was going to charge at me. After all the moaning about wet feet, not being able to see with my glasses on or off (because it was raining on saturday) and arguing over a stove, I really enjoyed the weekend.

I am so glad we did a practice walk first because I was so unprepared for this. I forgot almost everything. At least I remembered to take pictures!

BEAUTY | Seventeen Rock Hard Nail Effects


This feels weird; the last post I did was last Saturday. Well I'm back after a busy five days! I love painted nails, it's a shame my school doesn't. I had to hide my nails throughout the day just to avoid a teacher telling me to go take my nail polish off. So about two days ago I went looking for a new nail polish because I was fed up with the current ones I had. I went into boots looking for some pretty polish for my nails. As soon as I walk into Boots I'm always hit with a beautiful aroma of all the different perfumes. It's a shame they make me sneeze. I bought a few different ones and I will be reviewing some of them starting with Seventeen.

White is the new Black

All white outfits are a big YES this spring/summer. It has been seen many times on the catwalk, from Valentino to Simone Rocha. And I love love love it. It's so simple but yet still makes such a big impression.
You can wear white with absolutely anything. I have enough white shirts in my wardobe but I am lacking on the bottoms.

So, I've been on  a look out for a nice skirt for an outfit. It's not a surprise that a  lot of them are out of stock in most sizes (it's always the one that you really want as well)! These are my favourite bottoms and one piece items from the high streets that I have found which are IN stock. Also I've added a bracelet, numbers 1, 8 and 9 are what I think the nicest of them all. Will you be wearing all white this spring/summer?

Stella Mccartney's lazy bag





Obviously work went into producing these bags but to me I think that it has such a lazy approach to it. Which I absolutely adore! This was part of Harrods top 10 bags autumn/winter 2013-2014. It has such a relaxed feel to it. The masculinity of the item is an ongoing trend throughout the whole collection. Personally I think anything oversized is a win win. Looking through the rest of the collection she clearly thought that bigger is better.

The inaugural issue of Miss Vogue

Vogue provided us with a double issue this month yesterday. Which included the first edition of Miss Vogue. Of course the leading model right now Cara Delevingne is on the cover as she is an inspirationn to many girls across the globe. American Vogue already had a little sister, teen vogue which launched in 2003, so I guess it's about time British Vogue had a baby sister.

The Miss Vogue look page only had outfits worn by under 21s, faces such as Karlie Kloss, Sky Ferreira and Chloe Moretz. Apart from the clothes what I liked was the section about being under pressure and four different students at the ages of 16-17 spoke about 5 different subjects which come under that heading. 
  1. Image
  2. Drugs
  3. Social Media
  4. Exams
  5. Sex
It spoke a lot of truths and things that I notice within a day of being in school. Just like a lot of magazines it had a section of what to eat and drink to make your skin, hair, nails etc... healthy. I always read sections like that and have a great interest in them but never do as they say.

Editor Alexandra Shulman said "I wanted to produce an edition targeted at younger readers, created with your lifestyles in mind." Well... it featured a £890 Miu Miu leather bag, £275 Jimmy Choo sneakers, a £269 leather waistcoat from Urban Outfitters and Cara Delevingne rocking £425 knitted bra top and shorts by Margaret Howell. I don't know any teens who get that amount in their weekly spends unless you're a rockstar's daughter or something. However it also includes many great buys from Forever 21, Topshop and so on. The magazine is more likely to inspire, just like the main magazine does anyway, for those with an interest for fashion at an younger age.

I've heard that this will probably only released about twice a year and I doubt it will be a stand alone magazine. What do you think of the double portion on vogue this month?

Look like Miley

I think that Miley Cyrus has a very laidback kinda look. I think that's cool because I'm not one to dress up. There is a lot of crop tops, shorts and flats/ boots. I think it's weird because I used to love Hannah Montana when I was at primary school so I find it bit weird seeing disney stars such as Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens etc how they are now. I mean when I saw the advert for Springbreakers I was like woah, you don't see that in High School Musical.

Anyway... back to the point. I love her hair. At first I did think it made her look like a teenage boy but now I think it's pretty decent. She always decides and manages to show of her abs. Here are a few of her looks and where to get them.
