Hey everyone, sorry i havent posted in a while! The wireless has been down because (maybe some of you have the same problem) virgin media are having issues at the moment. Which is really really annoying and to be honest virgin is crap. They do not have the best connection! We are always having problems with our internet... We have an internet wire atm so i have currently plugged my macbook into router. Plus my head has been so full of college work aswell. Ive just been having doubts im not good enough or im not going to be able to pass! But im sure i will everyone has negativity creep into their minds. I am pretty on top of things at college though, i have all my research done for all the subjects now i just need to focus on getting my photos. I know what kind of photos i want aswell so im not really in that much of a bad position! Soon i promise ill do a photography post but like i said my heads so full of things and i have photos from the summer ive STILL to go through and edit and what not if they need small touches.

So apart form having no internet and worrying about college work ive been keeping myself bust with keeping on top of washing, which is such a pain in the colder months but i have gotten myself into a pretty good routine this year. Plus ive been cooking some awesome meals aswell. I really do love cooking, its definitely one of my hobbies and ive never really expressed that on my blog before. But i have decided that also i am going to start posting about what i cook, take photos and maybe explain how i do it. The way i cook i dont follow rules or measurements its just guest work! But it seems to have been working so far so im not changing it lol :P I might make it a feature the same way i am doing with Chris picking my outfits, what do you guys think? Would you like to see it as a feature once a week or just a regular thing i post about from time to time?

So this is what i wore about 2 weeks ago, ive been wanting to wear these DIY spiked boots for a while but ive been ever so nervous about the spikes falling off! And because of that i sort of walk funny in them... Towards the end of the day though i was walking fine. THe annoying thing was id walked so carefully in them ALL DAY and i then actually kick one off with my other foot! What a pain. I copied this idea form a brand called KANDEE, at the time i didnt have the money to get their pair even in the sale! I really love Hard Rock Cafe aswell, i go whenever there is one in the area and i really love this skirt so i tough it would all go! Tbh my inspiration for this outfit is because the top and skirt were hanging together on the washing rack! I though it would look quite cool adding something a bit darker and rocky to the skirt aswell. Chris did actually get me this skirt in the sale for £6! I loved it when i seen it so he just picked it up and bought it for me bless him.

A few posts ago (2 or 3) i mentioned that i was going to get Chris to pick an outfit for me once or twice a month as a feature on my blog. So today i thought i would give it ago. He is quite good to be honest, he knows my style and hes really really good at picking out things i like. The presents he got me from New York were fantastic, you've all seen the green polka dot dress, but ive yet to show the best one. But im saving that for another time to show you all! The dress im wearing here aswell Chris bought me! :) I went to try somethng on in the shop and he sneaked away and when i came back he d bought it!

Rules-  So what the plan is for this is whatever he picks, which is everything clothes to bags and shoes i will HAVE to wear. Not a bad plan right? I can give little hints like, if i want to wear a dress or an outfit that includes heels but that is it. Like today, i really wanted to wear heels because ive been wearing alot of flats at the moment due to college and comfyness. But i have total faith in him! He really is good and i kind of just want to show him off a little :P

Today me and Chris went out for lunch to TGI's so the outfit went pretty well for the occasion. We weren't at college today as we're off on a Tuesday, Wednesday and a Thursday afternoon so its pretty easy going! Means you can work and rest which is a goos way of doing. Means we can work really hard for a day or two then have a few days off to rest or get on with any work.

Hey everyone, was at college today so was in comfy things! I cant really wear big heels to this college because theres a few flights of stairs to walk up and long corridors! Its also because i have very sensitive feet, i really do need to take care of them and they get scuffs and blisters oh so easy. This is actually because im diabetic and diabetics need to look after their feet. I probably should take more care of my feet but im too much of a goof to remember :P 

So today i actually want to go for a really dark black grungy outfit but instead i came up with this! I was running about last night (i always plan my outfit the night before college so i can get changed quickly and go!) making our baguettes for college and getting all my things for college together, putting all the things i need into my handbag. I just found my Pretty Reckless tee, that i forgot i had, then i seen the skirt and thought what the hell give it a go. Plus ive hardly worn my Ed Hardy Cons, ive had them for 2 years and worn them out the house once!Its because i dont want them to get ruined though :( I do love them though i think they are fantastic and super super cool. I got my shoes in New York when i went for my 16th birthday, my mum got me them. Even a few years later i still love them lol cant beat converses theyll always rock! I do really like Ed Hardy, i know their stuff can look a bit tacky sometimes but i love the designs and when i first found the brand i was reallly really into rock. I still am into rock but my style dosent pure show rock. I think ill always be a rock/indie/alternative chick at heart.

Hiya everyone how are you all today? What does everyone else do on their normal lazy sunday? Today  me and Chris actually did something, we went to a christening. It was Chris' wee cousin, Arianne. She looked gorgeous in a wee white flowery dress! We went to a smallish church in one of the surrounding villages, Houston, then we went and had a buffet. I have now mastered the whole buffet thing, i used to be so shy at taking food. Now im not worried about piling my plate full of food! I was pretty stuffed, i don't feel bad about eating so much though because it was all pretty healthy stuff. 

I thought this outfit was perfect for the event. I had worn it before but i have been really wanting somewhere to wear it again and for some kind of event so last night it just came to me that i should wear this again. I didn't get a chance to photograph it before. The dress was actually a present from Chris and he chose it. I have actually fallen in love with this dress and the whole outfit. I think it just fits perfectly and the shape is gorgeous. Green is also one of my favourite colours, so i think he's done a fantastic job! So proud of him, he is very good at picking things out for me. I think im going to do 2 outfits chosen by him each month then post them, i have very good faith in him. The shoes were an absolute steal! When i first laid my eyes on them i had to have them, i fell in love. They are Carvela by Kurt Geiger heels and at an original intimidating £160 originally, i got them for £50! I found them on ebay and were only worn once.

I nearly didn't have them because i contacted the seller and offered £50 for them, she said that wasn't enough. So she just let them be bid on and they went for £30. A few days later i received a message from the seller saying it was a time waster and if i still wanted them for £50! I didn't really have the money but i couldn't say no i just had to have them and be silly with money. I do always think things through before i purchase things so i very rarely hardly just have a reckless buy. They are pretty high, but they are so damn comfy! Ive been wearing them all day, walking around and nothing. 

Sorry my legs are so pale :P its what scotland does to you! Tell a lie ive always been pale!
