Hello friends!

So, what have I been up to recently? Not blogging is what I've been doing! I have all these plans for posts, but I haven't actually go around to doing them yet! Oops! Another thing I have been doing is preparing for an A-Level Biology field trip, which I am going on next week. We looked at the website today, and there is often paranormal activity investigations that take place where we're staying, which really terrifies me. I might end up having my duvet pulled off me half way through the night, or the bedroom door unlocking but who cares because I'm going to be doing Biology for five days straight! (Sense the sarcasm).

Now on to today's post. I opened up my wardrobe the other day, and it hit me how little nice clothes I have. I mean, I do have a lot of clothes, just none of it is really very nice. I picked up a couple of items the other day when I was in town, either from 'H! By Henry Holland' (Debenhams) or New Look! 

I love all of the things I bought. The denim/floral print shirt has my name all over it, and when I tried it on I fell in love with it, and for only £15, I think it was quite a bargain! The gopher top is just so cute, and it's also really baggy so it goes so well with the skater skirt I bought. The creepers I bought aren't the same as the ones in the picture - mine have spikes on, but I couldn't find them on the website. They're so comfortable to wear, and I thought they would look really stupid on me, but I've grown to love them. The skater skirt is a weird, waffle texture, but it fits so nicely. I have been meaning to get a skater skirt for such a long time, and now I finally have one! 

Now onto the things I wished I had. This is from both Debenhams and New Look, as those are the two places I had a good look round! 

I have had my eye on the dress for such a long time, and every time I go into debenhams I have to go the the H! By Henry Holland section and admire it some more. It has a really pretty collar on it, and I am a sucker for collars! The playsuit is so pretty as well, as it has lace around the pockets. Lace and denim go so nicely together. The skirt is also amazing! It has little white polkadots on, and I love how the model is wearing it with the black converse!

If you have read any of my previous posts about clothes, and what clothes I want, you can probably tell that I love New Look! I think that all the clothes is just so nice, and it's all reasonably good prices as well! Personally, I'm not one of those people that get all their clothes from Hollister or Jack Wills, because I think everything there is ridiculously overpriced! The crop top I chose is so pretty, and I think it would go so well with the skater skirt I already have! Plus, it's under £10 - BARGAIN! I picked up the skater skirt when I was shopping, and I was going to buy it instead of the black one, but because I wouldn't be allowed to wear the denim one to sixth form I bought the black one, but I do plan on buying this sometime in the near future. The shorts are another thing that I have been wanting to buy for ages, but I'm waiting until I lose a bit more weight, otherwise I'd look so silly! The oversized t-shirt has been on my wishlist ever since I saw the music video for 'How Ya Doin'' by Little Mix, because Jesy wore one and I think it looks so cool! Plus, I think it would be seriously comfortable! The wedges are a must for summer, I have never owned a pair of wedges, but I plan to get some for my sister's graduation to go with a nice dress (that I still haven't picked out....). Lastly, this bag (like the denim shirt I bought from Debenhams) has my name written all over it. I think it's so cute, and it's the perfect size for a handbag. The lacy bit on the pockets is so pretty, and I just love it! As you can tell, denim is a recurring theme for the things I have chosen! I just really love me some denim!

That's all my picks for today! Hopefully I accumulate enough money over the next few weeks for me to buy all/most of these things! I hope you enjoyed reading, and let me know what your favourite item is from what I've picked out!

Music Favourites!

Hello everyone!

Over the past year or so, since I started on twitter, I've started listening to a lot more artists that are unsigned/unknown. In this post I'm going to talk about those artists, and how you can find out more about them and listen to their music. I have already mentioned them in previous posts, but ah well! Let's go!

Sam Callahan

Sam is a 19 year old singer/songwriter from Essex. He went to the Sylvia Theatre School in London and appeared in the West End as a child, but from the age of fourteen he started writing his own music. Personally, I love his own material more than I love the covers he does. He currently has one of his own songs on itunes ('Runaway Train') accompanied by two covers. Since the beginning of May he has been completing his Crazy Campaign leading up to the release of his new single 'Crazy'. I'm so impressed, as he's been able to raise over £1200 for Teenage Cancer Trust. I really feel like Sam deserves so much more recognition, because he works 24/7, and travels all over the country for it. As well as being really talented, he's so down to earth and nice to talk to. You can find Sam on:

The Parades

The Parades are a guitar-based British pop band, made up of Dan, James and Andy. Like Sam Callahan, they work 24/7 to make music, whether that's writing, recording or performing. They're so talented, and they make such good music. My all time favourite is Want You To Know, closely followed by All For You! I have only ever seen them live once, but I will be sure to go over and over again as they are so good live! I can't wait for them to get more recognition! I'm waiting for the day they release their music onto itunes for me to buy! You can find The Parades here:

I'm going to make these posts a more frequent thing, which explains why I have only picked two out of all of the unsigned/unknown artists I know of. Sam Callahan and The Parades are by far my two favourites, I could listen to their covers all day. They're all really nice people as well, which is always an added bonus. I really hope you do go and check them out, because they are worth a look at! Let me know what you think if you do! Thanks for reading!

Topshop Favourites

Hello friends!

Boy am I happy that all my exams are all over! I finished today, and I won't have any more for a whole year due to the fact that the government have scrapped January Modules. Not sure whether that's going to be an advantage or disadvantage on my part! Ah well, I'll get round it one way or another!

Now, as you can probably tell from the title, I've had a good old gander on the Topshop website, and I'll tell you for why! I went to town not too long ago and walked past Topshop and had a look at their window display, and I fell in love with so many things. So I thought that today I'd go onto the website and pick out a few outfits that I really love! Here we go!


My favourite part of this by far is the dress. It's such a nice length, and the colour is gorgeous. When I was putting this together, I didn't thing it really went together that well, but then I found the ring and bag and I thought they went nicely with the nude colour on the shoes, and the green on the shoes went really nicely with the dress. I thought that it brought it together nicely!


My favourite parts of this outfit are the skirt, the boots and the bag. Infact, I love all of it. The lacy black detail on the top looks so nice on the white, and I've always wanted a denim skater skirt. I am really considering buying the boots or the bag, or even both!


This is my ultimate favourite outfit. It's so summery with the pastel yellow and purple and the daisy ring. Oh my, I just love it so much. The more I look at it the more I want to buy each item. I am definitely going to buy the daisy ring, because that has my name all over it! The yellow and purple look so good together, ah I cannot flaw this outfit at all!

And that concludes my post. I know it was short and sweet, and I was intending on it being a lot longer but my sister put Misfits on and I can no longer concentrate! It's taken me ages to right this post, which it shouldn't have done seeing as it was so short! Hope you enjoyed reading, and let me know whether you like posts like this because I could make it a more frequent thing? Just let me know!
