Happy Halloween

I didn’t go out or do anything special for Halloween apart from stay in with Christopher and the dogs, C’s mum went totally all out this year and I thought I would share with you some of the photos from the house. As I’ve got older, I’ve gradually become less interested in Halloween but it’s always fun to see what all the kids dress up as so I hope you had a good one!

The Structured Blazer

Today’s post is just a simple OOTD featuring this amazing blazer I found in a Charity Shop so for the first time ever, I can say I own something vintage, haha. I love how the blazer looks so tailored and expensive – the shoulder pads weren’t my favourite when I first bought it but now I love them. I think it finishes off the look. I love the purple/aubergine lining on the inside, especially because it almost matched my top!

The jeans I’m wearing are my favourites, they’re the Authentic Skinny Jeans from TOPSHOP which cost £45. My loafers are from SCHUH costing £65, they are so comfy and make an outfit look so much more classic. Lastly, I’m wearing my amazing viscose ladder top from Topshop, this top is currently out of stock but fingers crossed they’ll bring it back. I love outfits like this – I like dressing in outfits which look a little more structured and put together.

October Wishlist

I’ve yet to buy my Winter coat and I’ve been looking online lots recently just on the off chance I see anything. I thought I would share with you some of the items I’ve got my eye on at the moment.

IMG_0888.JPG
The first item is this stunning collarless coat from Topshop, I seen it and absolutely fell in love. I think it would be amazing for Winter and I love this colour. It costs £89 which of course, is definitely expensive but I think for a good Winter coat, it’s worth it!  I love the tailored and structured look to this jacket. I love how the coat is styled on the model, I think she may or may not have made me want a pair of Court shoes, who would have thought?!

Next up is another peg leg trouser, no surprise there. I love these trousers from Topshop and I think they would be perfect for a Christmas night out because they look almost Christmassy. Forest green is a favourite of mine and I think these would look really good with a pair of heels and a pretty bralet, like this one.  Lazy Oaf is easily becoming one of my favourite brands, I love how they’re so unique and you know that nobody else will have the same piece of clothing as you. I’m a sucker for a printed tee and I love this “Same Day Different Shit” tee which costs £38, I think it would so easy to fling on with a pair of jeans and Vans or Nikes on a lazy day.

I’m so desperate to get my hands on a pair of knee-high boots, I just can’t seem to find the perfect pair. I seen these from River Island VIA ASOS and I think they’re amazing. I’m normally not too fond of too much metal detail on shoes I buy but I love these so much! £120 is super duper crazy on a pair of boots but I definitely think if you’re going to get a pair of knee-highs – you’re gonna need to spend a little more money.

Alton Towers

I’ve been totally MIA recently because the heaps and heaps of uni work has begun, unfortunately. On Sunday (19/10) myself and everyone from work visited to Alton Towers for the day, it was such a funny day and I thought I would share with you some of the photos I took. I literally came home with dark circles underneath my eyes from not having enough sleep, the worst thing about those kind of journey’s is having to get the coach down and not being able to sleep, sad times!

Other than not sleeping, it was a great trip down to Alton Towers. I’m the biggest sucker for roller-coasters so obviously I had the time of my life! Now it’s time to burn off all those calories I consumed in that one day.

5 Perfect Chill-Night Movies!

So, this post will either be really fun or very boring to you but I thought I would share with you some of the movies that I think are perfect for those nights where you just want to lie in bed and chill. These are some of my favourite movies and I’m pretty sure (I hope you’ve seen them too) you guys will know what I mean when I say some of them certainly know how to make you laugh.

IMG_0731.JPG

IMG_0732.JPG
The first movie is She’s The Man, it’s so old and it’s such a classic ‘girl’ movie but you’ve got to admit – it’s bloody hilarious. I can proudly say I know pretty much every word to this movie, that’s how many times I’ve watched it. I can always remember my sister and I laughing for so long and quoting at the same time whilst watching this movie over and over. If you’ve never watched the movie – forget about what’s happening now and go watch it, please! You honestly won’t regret it. My favourite quote is “When my eyes are closed, I see you for what you truly are – which is OOOGLY.” I still say that to my sister to this day. Such a classic!

The second perfect movie, in my opinion would have to be What Happens in Vegas. Again, I’ve watched this movie countless times – no matter what, it will always make me laugh. Cameron Diaz has always been one of my favourite actors so that’s definitely a bonus. My favourite scene is when Jack (Ashton) is chasing Joy (Cameron) on the way to their meeting and they start fighting in the park, throwing oranges at each other etc. It always had me laughing and I think if you want a good laugh – pop What Happens in Vegas on and you’re sorted.

Pitch Perfect. It’s got to be everyone’s favourite, right? I’m just gonna say right now that as I’m writing this post – I’m pulling up clips from each DVD on YouTube and singing my heart out, in this case. The last scene of Pitch Perfect is my all-time favourite, Rebel Wilson is my hero – HOW can someone be so funny, I love her so much. I think Anna Kendrick’s acting in this movie is amazing, if you’ve never seen Pitch Perfect – you are mental. I’m so so happy they’re both in the second movie – hopefully it will be just as funny. I love this scene because it gets you singing along and it’s just funny overall.

I’m not gonna lie – I think Footloose might be my favourite from this bunch, is that cheesy? I absolutely love Footloose (the 2011 version). I play the soundtrack in my car every other day, they just make you so happy! I’m so so happy Miles Teller is in the movie, I absolutely love him. I think he’s so cute and just hilarious. You can’t fault Julianne Hough’s body and her amazing dancing – she’s incredible. The movie always makes me smile, especially the last dance scene – I love the ending to the movie. Footloose is the kind of movie I could happily watch everyday in the background whilst I’m getting dressed etc, I’ve always been a fan of dance movies so of course this is a favourite of mine. My boyfriend has been forced to watch this several times and I’m pretty sure he loves it too, haha. You should definitely give this one a watch.

Lastly, Friends With Benefits always makes me laugh. I’ve watched this movie so many times and I never ever get bored of it. I remember everyone would never shut up about it and thought it was such a big deal, the concept and all but I still always fling it on and watch it when I’m just chilling. These movies are the exact type I fling on when I have a day off work/uni and when I have nothing to do.

Life Lately #1

I just thought today’s post would be something more fun, I’m going to start writing posts showing you what I’ve been getting up to – similar to My Week/Month in Photos but these will hopefully be more frequent. Since I got my MAC, I’ve pretty much been using it everyday for blogging, watching Netflix and doing uni work.

IMG_0709.JPG
01. So, American Horror Story returned with its fourth season last week and I was so excited to watch the first episode. You can watch the trailer for Freak Show here. If you’ve never watched AHS before – you’re seriously missing out, it’s amazing. You can watch season 1-3 on Netflix, hopefully that will persuade you to go start the first season. The good thing about American Horror Story is that you don’t really need to watch each season to understand what’s going on. In each series, the characters are all the same but the set-up is different each season. For example, there’s a Circus, a Mental Asylum and a Witch Coven. You should definitely get involved, I’ve never been so scared of Clowns before since I watched the first episode of the new season.

02. I got the iPhone 6 last week and I absolutely love it. I originally wanted the black one but they’re completely sold out and there’s a 6 week waiting list so I just went for the silver, to me – the gold colour looks cheap and it just doesn’t look nice to me. I’ve always had a black iPhone so it’s a nice to change for me. The size difference is so strange, if you go from the iPhone 4/5 to the 6 Plus – you’ll be so surprised because I’m even struggling with the difference from the 5 to the iPhone 6. I’m gradually starting to get used to it and I do really like it so far.

03. This is a photo of my boyfriend Christopher being the biggest loser ever. I love this photo, he hates getting his photo taken so it’s always nice to have one on my phone that he actually willingly took, haha. This photo makes me happy so I thought I would share it on my blog (as cheesy as that sounds).

04. I was looking through photos from our holiday to America last year and I came across this photo of the Statue of Liberty which I took when Christopher and I took the helicopter tour across New York, it was absolutely amazing. If you ever get the chance to do it, you definitely should. The photos brought back so many memories and I would absolutely love to be back there, preferably in Florida. Orlando, Florida was definitely one of the best experiences of my life.

05. Lastly, since I got my MAC – I’ve been watching Friends double the amount as I normally do. Every single episode is online so I’ve normally always got an episode on in the background when I’m getting dressed or blogging etc. I started from the beginning and I totally don’t regret it – Ross is my favourite character, I love them all but Ross is definitely my favourite. One of my favourite Friends episodes is the Pivot one. What is your favourite Friends episode?

Homies and Vans

Tonight’s post is a very simple and basic OOTD but these are normally my most favourite kind of outfits – ones in which I feel comfortable in. Working Sundays are never at the top of anyone’s list – especially not mine so today I just went for a really relaxed (I’m going straight back to bed when I get home) kind of look. I’m still bringing out my white jeans and I guess they are gradually going out of style but I do love my white MOM’s from Topshop, they were great while they lasted.

If you’re still looking to get your hands on some white jeans, these Leigh jeans with ripped knees are available to buy for £40 and there are also these Jamie’s for £42, I do love a pair of Jamie jeans. From what I know, the MOM jeans I’m wearing in the photos went into last season’s sale so you’ll be very lucky if you manage to get your hands on those, fortunately the petite ones are still available full price online. My VANS are from Schuh which cost £52 but you can get 10% off if you have Student Discount, I love these Authentic Vans because they’re so comfortable and pretty much go with all my outfits. Lastly this Reason Homies sweatshirt/jumper is from ASOS which I’ve been wearing a lot more often when I go to uni and on those days when I just can’t be bothered.
