Love Actually

As it's December and Christmas will all be over in less than a week, I (of course) watched the British classic 'Love Actually'. It is one of my all time favourite films. Every time I watch it I find a new favourite part. This year round the part that stuck out to me is from the very beginning. The part that is usually spent rushing to make a cup of tea or a quick trip to the toilet. I always knew that the start of the film had a pretty special quote, but after this horrid year it really hit me. This is what Hugh Grant says in the opening scene.

''Whenever I get gloomy at the state of the world I think of the arrivals gate at Heathrow airport. General opinions starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. Seems to me that love is everywhere, often its not particularly dignified or news worthy but its always there. Fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the twin towers as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge they were all messages of love. If you look for it I've got a sneaky feeling that you'll find that love, actually is all around'' 

(In which Billy Mack then sings a Christmas rendition of Wet Wet Wet's Love Is All Around).

Love Actually was made in 2003. 12/13 years later I think the world has become far more sinister. Horrid things happen everyday. Social media has too much control. It is so easy to send out hateful messages online and we're all so pessimistic. But then I think that it's because people look for negativity. People all have things to say about things that are unimportant. There is not much more to say about it really, because I mean, he says it all. Love is there. If you look for it you'll find it. Because love is everywhere, you can see it, hear it, feel it. It's like my post before where I spoke about making more effort with the people we love. ( 

Love is, actually all around (puns).

Thanks for reading & Merry Christmas.

''What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person''

Sorry for a lack of posts I've been working like mad over the Christmas period.

I'm a massive fan of John Green and his incredible way with words. He's the only author to ever keep me captivated in a novel. The only author to intrigue me so much that I'm reduced to tears or contagious laughter. I thoroughly recommend his work.

Anyway, for those who don't know, this quote is from Paper Towns. You see, my problem with people is that, if I love them I will continue to think they're better than they are even if they completely fuck me over. I praise them to the high heavens because I feel like they're more than they are. I always want to see the best of them and I always hope that they're not as bad as they've proved to be. Which is a 'treacherous' thing to do because I'm left hopeful yet always end up broken. It's in my nature to see the best in people, to put all my faith into somebody because I am so accepting of the people I love, 

People are people. People can be completely and utterly lovely or they could be absolutely shit. You can never expect much from anybody. In fact, you shouldn't expect anything from anybody because you'll anticipate good things from them that will never come. I could have the whole world telling me "you can do so much better" but I never want that I hate it when people tell me I can do better, I don't want better? Who is better than this person? I am too expectant that people will be more than what they are and will turn around and prove everybody wrong, and me right. It sucks because it never is that way. I waste so much of my time praying that these people will be more than a person and it's such a mistake. 

I really love this quote, I think it's a perfect. I need to learn to spend more time on myself rather than on people who don't spare a thought on me. Where people I once adored have let me down I fear falling again. I'm afraid of starting again, worshiping a person (who before meeting them I was completely fine) to then have the feeling of the world against you. How a person could be the only person to make you happy to the one person who makes you sad. Love is never the same but the pain is.

Thank you for reading.

Body Shaming | Part 1

What even is a 'perfect body'? Who decides what that is? Everybody has a different perception of perfection. What one person sees as unattractive, could be somebody else's ideal. I think my sister is perfect, I think certain shoes are perfect, some days to me are perfect, drinks, food but not everybody has the same opinions as me and could see what I see as perfect as complete shit, but that's irreverent to me because I think it's perfect. It doesn't matter what other people think about your physique, if you are happy with yourself, that's all that matters and if you're not, change it? I know for some people you can't physically/emotionally but then you need to learn to love yourself because you are more important than anything else. You do not need to change yourself for anybody ever.

It is so easy to judge people, say hateful things without even realising that your words could really put them down. People on the internet are always dragging people down, It is not OK, it will never be OK to publicly shame somebody for their appearance. The media are to blame for the amount of shaming there is. Comparing older celebrities who have had children to these young, fresh on the scene celebs is completely wrong. labeling somebody as 'fat' because she hasn't got a completely flat stomach, what is that? People tweeting celebrities saying how awful they look because they haven't got super thin legs, or whatever. People are people. Everybody is different but were all the same in the way that if somebody calls out on your insecurites it hurts.

Why is it that no matter what size you are, somebody has something to criticise you for? Everybody nowadays is so judgmental. I haven't a clue why but it should seriously stop. And it's not just guys shaming girls, it's girls against girls, girls shaming guys and then guys vs guys. Why is it anybodies place to say anything about YOUR body. Do people shame people because they aren't happy with their own appearance, so it's only right to make somebody feel  as bad as you do? It's not OK.

I have more to say about this topic and will write about it again in the near future.

Let me know what you think. Thanks for reading.

Just a Thought

I think there is too much negativity and sadness around at the moment, unhappiness is an all time high. And it's sad because it's so easy to make somebody smile, whether it be showing an interest in their day, paying them a complement or just smiling at them. If anything were ever to happen to people you love you would regret not telling them that you loved them enough. I have a really strong friendships with people because it's so easy to be genuine and tell them how much you're thankful for their companionship, that you love them, that they look beautiful and just showing them general respect. ''You look nice today'' I don't know, just simple things that make people feel good about themselves. My friends and I are always dropping random complements in our conversations and each time it feels nicer to receive. I really don't think we tell people how much we appreciate them enough. 

When I am working if I like a customers hair, nails, clothing or whatever I'll tell them. I'm not afraid to tell people they look good. Seeing a genuine smile from them afterwards is so nice. I hope that something that was so natural and easy to say could have made that persons day. I just wish more people were comfortable with telling people that like what they've done with their hair, or whatever because it's the simple things that go a long way.

Sometimes nice words go over your head. But sometimes they stay with you and when you're feeling unhappy with yourself you remind yourself of when these kind things were said about you. For example, about 4 years ago I was waiting for a friend to get off of her bus and two old ladies got off and without any hesitation said that I was beautiful to my face and spoke so lovely about me to her friend. It still makes me smile all these years later. Negative things however are much easier to remember, again,  for example; the very first time I met my ex's friends about 3/4 years ago (I was youngish and very shy) I heard one girl say "she's pretty", in which another responded "yeah for Shrek" in which they then were laughing and saying "Fiona" behind my back for the whole time I was there and as we walked away. Firstly, I don't know who these girls were, nor do I care, but what I do know is that they made me feel so fucking shit and insecure and I still today think how nasty that was. Secondly I fucking hate Shrek so it was a double insult. Anyway, I'm not green so I try not take it to heart. If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything. It is shit that something that they probably cannot even remember saying still pisses me off years later. But then this works either way I guess, if you make somebody happy with a words you've said it would feel so nice knowing that they still are thankful for what you said that random day 4 years ago.

It's so easy to be nice. It's totally cool to not like somebody, you won't always get on with everyone, but don't be a dick about it. Be nice to people. I just think if everyone were to just be nice, and if you think somebody looks nice, TELL THEM they might be having a really shitty day and you could completely change that. Make people smile, it's nice. 

Let me know what you want next. 

Thank You!

It's absolutely heartbreaking. This world is so tragic. It's clear that there is so much love in the world as the world is showing their support and praying for the "act of war" in Paris. But why on earth is this happening? It's disgusting, bombing the most beautiful city, of love and breaking thousands of hearts how dare they. 

I'm petrified. My heart hurts, I can't believe that there are people who are capable of such massacre. Its revolting, why is this happening what do they honestly think they'll achieve from this. It's fucking hideous that they've targeted innocent people, families, couples and children. It's horrific they were probably having the the best night of their lives and I imagine some of them even said those exact words and these sick people destroyed their whole life, merciless. They probably were counting down the days until the match or the concert all for their precious lives to end tragically. 

Can you imagine the horror, being there, knowing you probably won't survive. I think even the thought of knowing I was going to die so gruesomely and knowing I'll never see the faces of the people I love, the pain of never seeing my family, never telling people how much I love and appreciate them enough, no future, the thought of that alone could kill me. The fear in that moment would be absolutely sickening. 

I can't imagine how these peoples families and loved ones feel at this horrible time. All I know is that you were probably their last thought and the whole world is thinking of you and praying for Paris. I'm honestly scared for my life because it can be gone in an instant. I hope and pray to God that this all ends and western countries stick together and never give in. Were stronger than them. Please don't start war, love and respect everyone, don't be stereotypical and racist because that's what they want. Spread love and we can try our very best so not let their hopeful "Great War" happen. 

Be safe and careful. 

Thank you for reading  

My thoughts are with Paris and everywhere and anyone affected by the terrorist attacks.

Rememberance Day Experience?

You can read this post and think of me as racist or whatever you want but after the disrespect I witnessed today I just kinda wanted to quickly write about it as I'm pretty infuriated. 

There is a hell load of controversy with this topic in that people don't want people who aren't british in the country, (which I don't agree with because people are people). But anyway, today being the 11th day of the 11th month, on the 11th hour of the day it is our country's tradition to do a minutes silence as a tribute to those who lost their lives fighting for their country. 

Today I was on my way to work and a gun was fired at 11am in which the whole town went silent, bar a group of women who were not british. They talked the whole way through in a different language, (everybody around could hear it where they were the only people having conversation). Where they were from is irrelevant but it made me VERY angry. If you're living in England and want us to respect you and your religion DO NOT disrespect our country by talking non stop during our ONE minute silence. 

Thank you.

Saying NO

I've seen this a lot recently on various social media, how people are getting shamed for saying no to guys. It really frustrates me. It's so much easier to lie and say you're in a relationship than to say ''No sorry, I'm not interested''. Because when you say 'no' you usually get the 'oh why not', 'let me take you out anyway' or the short and sweet, 'bitch'. Or whatever but when you say that you're seeing someone else people tend to back off. And it's crap that you have to lie to these people to tell them no. I know I'm not the only person who uses it as an excuse, although it may seem like a low blow and a rude thing to do, you don't have to put up the shit they give you after you have said no. I appreciate that it takes balls to ask somebody out, and it's mostly flattering but if I wanna say no, leave it there. 

'''I have a boyfriend' is the easiest way to get a man to leave you alone. Because he respects another man more than you''

I was on holiday in Greece earlier this year I made great friends with group people that were staying in our apartment block. At a club one night these two guys tried talking to me and my friend. I'm usually a great judge of character (if I do say so myself) I instantly knew what type of people they were, I didn't want to talk to them at all because as I knew what their intentions were when talking to us. I was not interested in the slightest. So when they tried it on with me, I declined I got all this crap questioning me as to why I wasn't interested. And yeah okay, I get you wanna know why but don't hassle me and make me feel like I'm a shitty person. If I said no, then no? I said he wasn't my type and I don't fancy him like in the nicest way possible, but this guy was obviously so full of himself and a complete dickhead that he wouldn't stop because he clearly thought he was good enough to carry on. One of the friends we made saw that I was uncomfortable in the situation and came over and said 'are you okay?' I responded 'Yeah I'm fine, let's go though'. And this piece of shit guy said ''oh is this your type then, fat and ugly?' and in that split second he epitomised exactly the type of guy I thought he was. It was so fucking unattractive and disgusting that someone could openly say that to somebody else. I felt so awful like it was my fault that he had had that said to him. There was nothing wrong with our friend and he wasn't fat nor was he ugly but this twat obviously thought he was way better than everyone else. It was so harsh I could've cried with anger and it still infuriates me months later.

Just because somebody may be attracted to you does not mean that you have to be attracted back. It makes me so mad that sometimes you're made to feel obliged to like somebody back. If it's made clear that someone is not interested, don't continue in trying to pursue that person. Talking to guys makes me feel insecure and uncomfortable. I don't really like going anywhere alone because I get heckled or whistled at and that makes me feel very uneasy. I do think it's sad that you have to lie to these people because it is easier than saying 'no' and it shouldn't be like that. 

P.S: If you are one of those guys who after I've said I have a boyfriend say ''Would you cheat on him'' please, go to hell, you are shit.

NO means NO.

Thanks for reading.

I have been SO busy over the past two weeks, back I'm back on track and will have my Wednesday and Sunday posts for you guys! (If you even noticed I wasn't posting LOL)

I got asked on tumblr what my views on affairs were, so sit tight. 

Cheating/affairs to me are literally the highest form of betrayal there is.

When I was 6 years old my dad had an affair, it completely tore my families world apart, it was hideous. Growing up was so difficult, having to get used to this new woman and not fully understanding what was going on. My mum moved to Kent but I stayed living with my dad until I was 12/13. I missed her too much so I left Essex and started a second, secondary school (which was so hard for me as I find it daunting meeting new people and get very anxious about it). It seriously ruined a big chunk of my childhood. Moving away from my best friend and knowing I'd hardly ever see her, Christmas was now difficult, different and awkward, half living with my mum, then my dads at weekends and vise-versa. Just not having that family feel that I craved. I've always been a daddy's girl and it was all pretty unbearable. That was just the effect it had on me, I cannot imagine how that could have been for my mum (of three young children at the time) losing somebody she loved enough to marry, the father of her children and become a single parent. To have my elder sister grow up super fast and become a somewhat father figure to me and my younger sister, everything good just seemed to vanish. It was hard. And it still is 12 years on. I don't understand how you could do that. 

If you want somebody else, leave. HOW can you live with yourself knowing you've got somebody else at home who loves you. It destroys peoples trust and faith in you, and as a result weakens the other person emotionally and I think it's sick. Having an affair whilst you're married is the lowest form of an affair, to have a secret passionate relationship when you've vowed to love somebody else forever is so fucked up, it really is.

I couldn't live with myself knowing I had ruined a love. I get that people do fall out of love but leave that person before you get with someone else, don't lie to somebody who loves you. People may come across as strong but I think having somebody do that to you could break anybody.

If you want somebody else, don't destroy somebody else in the process. Although it may be hard to end a relationship because you don't want to hurt them, it's much better to be truthful than ruin that persons relationships in the future and hurt them way more than a break up would. Where is your conscience? How can you live with that guilt? It really makes me sad that people can be that careless. 

Don't waste peoples time in getting into a relationship if you're not going to be committed. If you like freedom and being with different people, don't get into a relationship. Don't be stupid. If you're not happy in a relationship, you have every right to want to find somebody else,  but end it before you start again. I mean I know that cheating and having an affair are slightly different, as an affair is usually a repeated sequence but either way you're unfaithful and I think is awful. I really do, to go behind somebody's back who loves you is a hideous thing to do

Although I am viciously against unfaithfulness, I am a strong believer in that 'everything happens for a reason' and if my dad didn't do what he did I wouldn't be the person I am today. Not that I'm thankful that he did that, I'll never forgive him, but I like my life now and I'm happy where I am. But it should have never of happened and I still remember that night of a screaming match between my parents and how afraid and confused me and my sisters were, all three of us sitting at the top of the stairs crying, contemplating whether we should go down stairs or not. I don't think I'll ever forget that night.

After watching the Doctor Foster series I am even more against affairs.

Affairs are horrid. Don't be that person. 

Thanks for the question, what do you want next?

Autumn Favourites

As were in one of the best seasons of the year, I thought I'd show you guys my favourite pieces this season. Along with the majority of people, Autumn is my favourite time of the year (next to winter) I love wrapping up warm, coats, boots etc. I think that its easier to dress at this time of the year and I bloody love it! SO here is just an insight to a few of my much loved Autumn pieces.


As soon as its Autumn, this beauty makes an appearance (for most of the Autumn/Winter season). I adore it. It's actually my mums, but if you're anything like me I'm always stealing her old stuff that's cool (not all of it though because she wears crocs HA) anyway, this shirt/jacket is about 18 years old? A family (kind of) tradition of ours is Disneyland every year, this was purchased from one of the stores in Frontierland (right where Thunder Mountain is). And I'm so glad she's kept it all these years as it is my ALL time favourite.I love the red and black pattern and think it looks good on pretty much everyone. I'm on the hunt for shirt with the same pattern (please leave a comment if you know where they're selling them)! This pattern always wearable in the fall and comes back into fashion yearly, you can't really go wrong with it! 

£22.99 Zara
I was accompanying a good friend of mine shopping the other day and ended up spending quite a bit of money on myself, surprise-surprise. I am forever dressing in black, but I've found a few pieces this year that are colourful(ish). I fell in love with this top in Zara and instantly said 'I'm buying it' NO hesitation whatsoever! So I did buy it and love it! I think it will be easy to style with black jeans, or a denim skirt, bringing together a 70's meets 90's style! The colours in this top are orange, green, black and grey, and work pretty damn well together believe it or not! This is from the Trafaluc collection (TRF) in Zara which has forever been my favourite.

Dr Martens Flora Boot £110
For my 18th birthday last year my younger sister got me the Flora Boot in Cherry Red. I ruined the first pair by catching my foot on a door and cut a bit of the shoe off (worst day of my life). Luckily we were able to return them and start again! After that incident I was scared to wear them again so kept them in the box for a long time. Now were back into the cold weather I cannot get them off of my feet. I love how the colour is coming through stronger where I've worn them in. I love them so much and recommend them to everyone. and anybody who wears Docs knows they're worth the money because not only do they look fabulous, they last for a VERY long time and are ALWAYS on trend! (and comfy).

Thanks for reading! I'd love to know your favourites!

Love Yourself

I always see posts online of people saying 'love yourself before you love anybody else', 'love who you are' and stuff and I think that's true and great. My problem is however, as soon as somebody does show a hint of self praise they're shot down with 'full of themselves', 'big headed' and 'loves themselves too much'.

I grew up hating who I was, it's really sad. I know SO many people are/were the same. I remember literally screaming and crying one day when I was as young as 6/7? in my room because I thought I looked like a boy, and sounded like Malfoy from Harry Potter (lol). I think that is so so so sad that at that young age I was embarrassed of myself. I hope there is nobody that young that feels the same. This feeling was continual for so many years until the past year or so? My unhappiness was getting a little unbearable, looking in the mirror saying ''I hate you, you're ugly,'' I did that far too often and looking back at it now it's quite heartbreaking. I kinda bullied myself I guess, now if I'm feeling shitty I try be positive to myself because it helps. I'm so much happier with myself now. I ditched people who make me feel worthless, stopped caring what people might have thought about me and spent time with people I loved. If you surround yourself with people who love you, you will start to love yourself. 

It is SO important to love who you are, I believe its totally fine to like your body, your hair or facial features. You are you. If you don't appreciate yourself you'll be miserable, you'll train yourself to believe that nobody will want you, because you don't even want you. If you appreciate you, you won't care what other people think. I love the way I dress, I like how I do my hair, I like my make up and I like me and if somebody turned around go me and was like 'I don't like that' I'd let it go over my head, I don't care if somebody isn't a fan of what I'm doing with myself, I'm a fan.

So, love yourself. Tell yourself in the mirror that you look cool today. Rub your confidence off on other people so they can feel good too. Being told that 'you love yourself' shouldn't be an insult, embrace it. You're only given one life, it's up to you to make it a good one.

False Charity

I am not the most charitable person but I do what I can when I can. I give away loose change when I have it on me, I'll text £5 to whatever charities when I'm asked on the street and if I walk past a homeless person and I have anything on me I'll give them what I've got. I mean people can be really rude with giving away money but its just small things that you can live without could help someone else a tremendous amount. When I do give money to either a charity or somebody on the street, in myself I feel happy. I may have made that person happy, smile or helped them slightly. I don't expect people to be like 'Oh wow! What a lovely girl' you know, but all I see now is people expecting respect because they've given money or whatever away, 

Knowing myself that I've done a good deed is enough for me. I think it is kind of gross of people to film themselves giving money away, buying a McDonalds for somebody on the street so that people on social media can see them doing something nice. I don't understand why people feel the need to have thousands of views and admiration because they have been charitable. It takes the goodness away from the good deed I think, 'oh hey look at me I gave food to a homeless man share this so I can get more attention' like they crave internet popularity more than that person needed that money or food? Doesn't really make sense.

SO many people do stuff like that daily out of the goodness of their hearts, not to get a few hundred likes, retweets and shares? They don't expect to get anything from it, so I don't understand why people fall at peoples feet just because somebody was filmed giving it away. 

I was out in Canterbury the other night with people from my friends university and as we walked (or stumbled shall I say) out of subway at 4am a homeless lady was kindly asking for money and a girl we were with went over and gave her her change and the cookie she got. Seeing her do it filled me with happiness, it was such a lovely thing to do, just a act of kindness. She expected nothing in return and I think that is what charity is. It's not about having people praising you, its doing it to genuinely help.

People need to stop caring so much about 'street cred' so to speak, and do more of what matters because the goodness is taken out of it when the only reason you gave to charity is to get noticed online.

What do you think?

''Soon She'll Be Like a Book You Read a Long Time Ago''

I thought I could occasionally write about my favourite quotes, so here goes.

This one has to be my all time favourite from the film 'Endless love'. I think it is the utmost perfect way to look at a passed love. Either a good one or a bad I think it's perfect. Because books are books, they're written and they end, you can go back and read it over and over but the story won't change. If there's no happy ending the first time, why would it be any different if you go back. Getting over somebody can be, and usually is a long horrible process, worse if you know they're doing fine without you. The metaphor is a nice way to look at what is no more. It's beautiful, you see it as fond memory and there is nothing else to it. Sometimes love runs it's course but the memory of it can last. You can read the same book over a hundred times but the ending will always stay the same. So when you are toying with the possibility of being back with somebody maybe the best way to keep them is in thought, you could end up disappointed because there's nothing better than that first time feeling. 

I like to read, and I like love, the way I figure it is that reading a good book is like the way you fall in love; you only get that exquisite feeling of reading a new book once. Once you've finished it rereading it isn't the same but you can remember how that once felt and start to read a new one. (i.e fall in love again)

It gets easier and soon that person will be like a book you read a long time ago. A beautiful memory or completely irrelevant.
I'll conclude this post with another quote that I believe links quite well 
''When it’s over, leave. Don’t continue watering a dead flower.''

Same Sex Relationships

I watched a video a while back of a man suggesting how absurd it would be if schools were to teach children about gay relationships in Religious Studies or whatever lesson. It was really disgusting,the way he spoke about it, like it would poisoning young children, that we’d be implying that being with the same sex is normal. What he was saying was really offensive and VERY discriminating. He was clearly severely homophobic (although he denied that).

I then thought to myself  when I was younger I remember seeing same sex couple and thinking that it was wrong, because I'd never seen it before (I regret that now). But back then I didn’t understand that not everybody is the same and they didn’t have to be. I think now, that it should be compulsory to educate children on the topic. People are so against gay relationships because they’ve only been shown one way. People are afraid to say they’re attracted to the same sex because people are only taught that men and women should be together.  It’s so wrong that peoples feelings are suppressed due to social norms. It should change rapidly. I want my children (when I/If I have them) to be happy with who they love and feel comfortable with their sexuality, not anxious and worried of what others will think. Society will collapse in the future if people continue to look down on same sex couples and people are never told that it’s okay to be gay. It’s wrong on so many levels.

I think it is funny how 'gay' was/is used as a insult, I remember when I was younger replying to this with ''Gay means happy'' and I was right, I guess. I am straight, however I know what love is, and I know that if you are in a same sex relationship it must make you happy, so be it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being attracted to the same sex. You are who you are. It makes me sick that people have ended their beautiful lives because of the fear of people opinions/reaction to their sexuality. People should not have their emotions eat them up because society tells them that their feelings are corrupt. 

I think my generation is much more understanding of homosexuals however there is still a long way to go. You're a shitty person if you look at somebody differently, or your opinions change because somebody is dating somebody of the same sex. 
Gay - ''light-hearted and carefree''

What's next?

Lets Touch on Fashion

The most repeated sentence from my mother is ''Fashion repeats itself''', she is so right. Another famous quote from my mother, ''I used to have something just like that'' which is probably the most frustrating line ever, in which I stubbornly reply ''why didn't you keep it''.

                                                 My mum epitomising the 80's

The late 80's-90's forever being my favourite fashion era seems to always be on trend (thank god). We have just spent summer, and now entering autumn with 70's vibes. As much as I adore wide sleeves and high waist flares (not that I could ever pull these off being 5ft3) I think it's almost time to part ways with the mustard and rusty tones and head back to the much loved 80's.

After LFW/NYFW it would seem that designers are digging the bold, vibrant colours and shapes from 80's. Dog tooth, shoulder-padded oversized blazers and decorative jumpers (very Andie Walsh). I'm not the biggest fan but I definitely won't be afraid to pull out my disco pants again. An 80's trend that I do 'dig' is the statement earring; so easy to incorporate in everyday clothing without trying to look much like an 80's enthusiast. However the 70's are still going strong, especially in the footwear department with chunky wedges, lace up heels and knee high boots. 

You can never go wrong with wearing black, which is why I'm pleased to see the ''wild child'' theme making an appearance (yet again) for AW15. With the likes of Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen introducing black 'Gothic' style. I love it, and so easy to recreate with my 'go to' store H&M with their grungy divided collection, I'm forever finding dark statement pieces to repetitively wear for incredibly decent prices. 

                                     Saint Laurent, Versace, Alexander McQueen

What are you looking forward to wearing this season?

Thanks for reading!

My First Blog Post

As this being my first blog post to keep (you very few) readers from moving on from my blog I will TRY (empathesis on the try if you hadn't noticed already) keep this quite short and simple.

I am currently 18, almost 19 (not that that's relevant). Anyway, a brief synopsis of what I like is as follows; I'm not musically talented in anyway but (like every person ever) I love music, going to gigs, concerts, live music I just love it. I spent the majority of my childhood and teenage years being a shy awkward and moderately miserable girl but after realising I really need to grow up I'm A LOT more confident (but still need a little bit of work). I have three best friends, 1. Lives in Essex, we've been friends since we were 4. 2. Just moved to university, when I moved secondary school she was my designated 'Buddy', I wasn't too sure at first but we've been inseparable since and last by certainly not least, number 3. My 17 year old sister. As sad as that may sound they are literally the three most perfect and beautiful people in my life and I wouldn't want to live life without them. 

                                      My sister and I in Brugge, Belguim August, 2015.

I'm no expert but again (like every girl ever) I love putting on my make-up to make myself feel pretty. I have trialed and error-ed for years and can now averagely apply eye-shadow but simply cannot and will not trust myself with winged eyeliner. // I like photography // I wasn't a big reader until summer last year. // I love heeled boots, shoes, clothes and fashion in general however working part-time in Next isn't funding this as much as I would hope. (It's full-time o'clock as I do nothing with my time and still need to figure out a career path lol). // I'm a walking cliche, I love cats, though i do not have one, I'm a frequent Starbucks customer. Still a huge Bieber fan, I love eating out in restaurants, I adore Mexican food. I love dead roses (and alive ones) there is a lot more to say but I think I'll call it a day. 

Obviously this isn't me inside out, you still only know the basics, if you even stayed long enough to read any of this anyway. But I like writing, I like the internet and I guess I thought it would be remotely cool if people enjoyed reading what I write instead of it going unread on my Tumblr or in my little diaries I keep. I guess I'll write about anything from my views on things to my opinion on the semi-tragic society we currently live in. 

What else do you want to know or hear about?
Thanks for your time, really.
