Hiya guys! Im really trying to get back into the swing of things and post more regularly. I have a lot of backdated outfit posts to show you, as well as photography, trips away and vlogs! So i think plan of action is when i have photographed an outfit i am going to post one i have already got sitting there. So there is going to be a mix of current outfits and summery ones. In all honesty, i just need to get up early and get to work. If i really put my mind to it i could have all the work done in 3 days. BUT seen as it is the weekend i am just going to continue blogging normally if i decide to post anything. Im not saying i only blog mon-fri but if i have a lot of blog related work (no my blog isn't my job but anything to do with it i just like to call it work) to do id rather start it on a Monday. What can i say? I have weird OCD tendencies. 

(No i do not have OCD and i am sorry if i offended anyone with the remark saying i have "weird OCD tendencies" i DO NOT find anything mental health related weird or something to be made a joke about). 

Today, Chris and i got up fairly late (as we always do) and decided to go to the cinema and for something to eat as a late lunch. Of course we went to one of our favourite restaurants Amaretto. I had my favourite because i hadn't had in such a long time. Which was of course bruschetta milano and sea-bass with chorizo & mediterranean vegetables. We went and seen the film Elysium, i had my eye on it since i first saw it advertised.

I do not really know/remember how i got this outfit together. It was pretty much "quick get out the door" type of outfit. I've been wearing these jeans alot recently just because jeans are quick and an easy to throw on and you can still look ok (even if you know your being a scruff for the day). Again, the t-shirt i just threw on and the heels matched the top slightly because they both have yellow and a greyish black on them. Plus, heels always add a "dressed up" feel to an outfit. Even if, as i said before, you know you are being a scruff for the day. The bag, i personally thought would match because of the yellow in the top but it was more beige than yellow. But oh well, i rolled with it anyway. The coat, OMG this coat, i am totally in love with this jacket at the moment. I threw it on because of the androgynous over-sized feel to it and the fact it was green. I thought i needed to add the hat because my hair was a bit scruffy and it added an edge to the outfit, off-duty model look or whatever.

Hiya everyone, im back! I have so much photography to show you guys, but i need to sort through them all first! As well as photos, i took a few video clips while i was away as well so once i have done all that i am going to post the outfits i wore so that you can see everything all together. So as soon as possible i am going to get to work on my holiday stuff! I have loads of posts and videos to get together from way before i went on holiday as well so i really need to get to work on my blog! 

Today me and Chris went out too lunch with his grandparents and we went to harvesters, i had the plantation platter and it was delicious! I didn't eat it all so i brought most of it home. I haven't really been up too much recently just been getting back into being home and obviously sorting out my suitcase. Luckily enough i didn't have alot of washing to do as i did a big chunk of it before i came home!

I just threw this outfit together today. I really wanted to wear my new wedged trainers and something a bit grungy. Now, i have to admit i AM NOT a fan of the wedged trainers and the sporty trend (i have mentioned about the sporty trend before) but as soon as i seen these trainers on Topshop i instantly fell in love with them! So much so ive bought them in a size 7 rather than my normal size 5. I still haven't come across another pair that i have even liked. They are so comfy and with these ones (im not sure if you can do it with any other wedged trainers) i can actually take the wedge bit out. So if i just want to wear them as normal trainers i can. Perfect! I thought the jumper and skirt would much because the colours in them both are quite toned down and pastel like. As well as there being blue in my skirt. The hat, obviously helped me keep a small dark edge to the outfit and the slight grunge feel i wanted.

Hi guys, sorry ive been so MIA. My head has been up my arse to be honest and i've been too lazy too blog or do anything. But today i have decided i need to get myself sorted as i have a backload of posts and videos to show you! I did have a haul video for you guys but as i was editing, i realised it hadnt copied all of the video onto my laptop. I then spent about 2 hours trying to sort it out and my memory card fucked up, so i decided to leave it to another day. So i think i will attempt to get it up tonight so i can start working on my Edinburgh post & video for you guys :). I have a really busy next few days as im away this weekend with all my dads side on holiday. I havent even packed. So i need to try and get up earlyish so i can get a few posts up before i go and can pack. I really dont want to be rushing packing as i will just stress myself out and not be happy when i arrive. 

I am going to try and attempt at getting at least 2 or 3 outfit posts while im there, but will have to see. For starters, i dont have my photographer with me. So i am taking a light tripod, that is if i can work Chris' remote if not i just need to really hope i can train one of my family members in using an Nikon SLR camera, which could be very interesting. I am excited about going, its the first holiday ive ever had with my younger brother. I went shopping the other day to pick up few bits, i then came home and realised i had left the bag somewhere... I was so annoyed! Id spent about £15 on beauty bits and didnt want to have to spend that again as it would have then been £30 spent. I re-tracked my steps to Primark and popped back in today and someone had handed the bag in! I was super happy! 

Today, i just threw my outfit together. I chose the top first and i didnt really know where i was going with it, but i knew i was considering a skirt and a grungy styled look. I decided to add the checked shirt as its a classic 90s grunge staple plus i had chosen to wear this skirt, so i wanted to add some colour somewhere. The reason i chose this skirt and not the i originally wore in Paris (I did post the outfit but i didnt wear the same skirt with the outfit that i had done in Paris) is because i hadn't worn it yet. I added these shoes because i wanted to wear some heels and they matched the black & white colouring of the skirt and its the same reason for the socks, they matched the top.
