Instagram Catch Up #4


Just a few this time :). I don't tend to include all my photos cause some i do realize how pointless they actually are, ahh the joys of instagram.
  1. A new shirt i tried on in ASDA, i loved the colours and dip dye but i didn't get it :(.
  2. My beautiful kitty keeping me company whilst i was ill with the norovirus (eugh don't get me started on that virus).
  3. Smarties cookies i made, they look delicious but they were the most horrible things i've ever tasted :(!
  4. Getting excited over Christmas!
  5. My amazing new shoes from Jeff Baines my mum got me.
  6. The best chocolates to eat over christmas, ever!

Button!

It's been a few weeks since i've started getting back into blogging now, so i found out how to create my own button and i've made a simple one to start with. Buttons are a great idea and i always love seeing everyone elses buttons, and if anything it makes me want to follow their blogs more! So yeah, if anyones kind enough to use it, please let me know and i'll return the favour. Much appreciated :)

Collars.

Okay, i am in LOVE with any kind of collars on clothing, from Peter Pan style to just a normal type collar. To find a decent piece of clothing with the cute collar it costs way more than i can afford, so until i've started working properly i'm just going to long for these beautiful pieces i found online. Ugh they're so pretty.
Velvet seems to be coming into fashion too and i've spotted a pair of velvet leggings and i've been obsessed with looking at any piece of velvet clothing i could find! I really can't wait to start earning money to buy these beauties :)! 
Do you like Peter Pan collars? I actually don't own one piece of clothing with a Peter Pan collar on, but i'm determined to changed that!

Christmas mini haul?

Is that what you call it? I've never done one before so i thought why not! :) Currently snuggled up on the sofa writing this with my dads new blanket covering me, stolen already :3. Well i've had a quite a nice Christmas morning and afternoon, watched films with my family so it's been quite a chilled day :). I'm wearing a jumper my mum bought me, leggings from Primark from my mums friend (they're so comfy ahh) and zebra socks from Bhs (also so soft warm and comfy!). 
 











Also taken with my camera and it's new lens! Aah so pretty and it's made my pictures i take a lot more defined and focused which is great, only downside is that it has no zoom control so it's automatically zoomed in, but i'm not complaining!

My mum bought me some Samy Fat Hair shampoo and conditioner, good for people with thin hair and needing a little volume which actually does work :). And my lens obviously and then a perfume from avon, i love the Secret Fantasy perfumes, nice and sweet smelling.


My brother got me some amazing new straighteners, i got my first pair when i was around 13 and i haven't changed them since so it was a nice surprise off him, also i love Remington straighteners, they never fail to do a good job imo. Myself loving the film My Neighbour Totoro, my fab best pal Alex managed to get me a cute Totoro message bag! I love it so much, he knows what i love so i knew it'd be a great gift :).

How lush are these shoes? My mum and i went last minute shopping Christmas Eve and i found these from Jeff Baines for £20 and i'm in love with them! They're so comfortable and i love the suede, looked 10x better than the leather ones i'd seen.

I got a load of chocolates, eyeliner, pyjamas and few clothes so it was a great day overall and i can't wait til Christmas comes back around again! I love this time of the year.

Merry Christmas!

The title says it all, i hope you're all having a wonderful day :). And you got everything you wished for! I'm very grateful for what i got and i'll make a short post about it soon. Can't wait to see everyones post-christmas posts! :3 I'll leave you with my most adorable cat you'll see this christmas, what a cutie. Even though he's really upset with us because we didn't get him any catnip :(.


Being a confident person.

I hate saying this, but as i've grown older i have noticed how little effort i put into how i look. Having next to nothing money whilst being a teenager in todays society of what gorgeous and pretty is, it's hard to feel good about yourself when you simply can't afford things to do so. I see teenagers nowadays, and they're spoilt rotten, having the most expensive clothes etc. i'm not spoilt at all, and that's a good thing. Because i respect my parents for not giving me everything i want, because i find that rude and it's always amazing when my mum does buy me clothes cause it's not something i get all the time so i can look forward to it.
           Kinda sidetracked there a little, but i've been realizing how i can't afford to buy nice make-up, and hair dyes, and clothes every week like people do. I'm not saying i want to be completely fake to feel happy, but i feel like if i did have that little bit more money to make more effort with how i dress and how i use my make-up, i would feel so much better about myself.
            Natural beauty is amazing for many girls, because i do see girls that wear way too much but you can tell she's pretty without it all on and it's a shame they hide it. But being an insecure girl i am, i don't like my natural face, even though i'm always look natural, which i guess is why i'm so self conscious and i'm not happy with how i look. I feel like i could be a happier person if i made that little more effort.
         Sorry if this made no sense, i just wanted to get my feeling out about that certain topic.

A job oppurtunity

I turn 18 in January and i have still yet to have found any sort of job, it's not that i don't want one because the money would be amazing but i've just never really had the confidence to apply anywhere. I worry over literally everything so when it comes to an environment i am unfamiliar with people i don't know, it makes me feel ever so uncomfortable and that's whats stopped me from ever trying to find somewhere to work. Plus i'm super shy so i feel like i'd need to sort out how i am around new people before i start diving into something completely new.
                  As i was saying, as i'm approaching 18 i talked to my local pubs owners last night, and told them about how i'm nearly legal to work behind a bar and if there was any sort of jobs going there. I've been going to this bar around 10 years now, so the environment is never strange and i literally know the names of everyone who goes in there (i'm good with names though). So i felt like it was a really good chance for me to find a job and also this could help with my confidence and hopefully bring me out of my shell a bit more. So i asked, hoping for something positive and i've spoke to both owners now and they said they'll train me up to become a bar staff so i'm really excited about this news! But also very nervous because even though i know how to pull pints, there's a lot more to being bar staff than just doing that. But i literally love the owners both to bits so i'm gonna feel really comfortable working there, the bonus is i'm getting paid for doing it!
              So wish me luck when i start training, and hopefully i'll be a barmaid in the next few months!

Smoke




Say hi to my boyfriend :) And my horrible garden. I felt creative the other week and decided to join him while he was having a fag (tut tut!). Taking photos of my horrible garden didn't work so whilst he was smoking i tried to capture the smoke and this is what i got. Just experimenting now but i like the idea of smoke covering features or something like that, woo for brainstorming :3

My week in photos #2

Apologies for the lack of posts this week, i've been away in Devon and soon as i got back i spent the night and day with my boyfriend so i didn't go on my laptop to blog. Forgive me! :3
1 - Funny story, i tried to make this kitty look like a princess. He belongs to next door, and they thought he was a girl when they first bought him home so they called him Tia. Say hello to princess Tia ;D!
2 - My 'first self picture in Devon'. Travelled all morning and got there finally at 1pm :). Love my new cardigan so much.
3 - Don't mind me, i took about 20 photos of the beach/scenery. 
4 - £2 for a cat stationary set? Don't mind if i do!
5 - Car rid home :) my hair started fading really lightly, i'd have kept it this colour but my roots were so horrible x___x
6 - I've only ever had a few starbucks but i do enjoy them when i have them.

Hope you all had a lovely week ^___^

Devon

I'm back from Devon, yay :3. Was nice to get away from 3 days but i did miss home so much. The weather was lovely, rained the first day we came a bit but the 2 days after were nice. What did i do? Erm, well our hotel was a 5 minute walk from the beach so we went there, roamed around Devon highstreet and the shops on the harbour/beach front. Also went to the Zoo and Paignton pier which was fun. I had a lot of fun taking photos with my camera, i was really excited to do that before i even went! I'll show some pictures now, i'd go back anyday! Just not yet, cause i miss my boyfriend and he's still in Wales :(.

My week in photos

Welcome to my boring life :-)
1 - The lovely blue skies we had at the start of a week! I feel the need to always document when us Brits have good weather cause it never lasts.
2 - Sitting in the sun, with my new purple hair :}
3 - Borrowed AC Revelations off my boyfriend, was so excited to play this game. I've finished the story now, i might review it. Not sure yet.
4 - A book i cherished as a kid, used to love Jacqueline Wilsons books, and the show The Story Of Tracy Beaker.
5 - Irn Bru!! I love this drink so much, i can never find multipacks of them but i managed to find some :}
6 - I stopped at my boyfriend dads flat the weeked as his dad was away, and we got to look after his dog Buster :}. He's deaf, it's so cute, later on i found out i was allergic to him though :(

Gigs


Since i was 13 , i started going to gigs. I'm really proud to have started going at that age, non-stop for 4 years is pretty cool. And thinking of it, i have no idea how i managed to pull it off. Having no job in those 4 years, i counted on winning at bingo (i play of a sunday at the pub haha) and birthdays/college funds/christmases.
I just feel really lucky to have gone to see so many bands i love and loved. Getting up at stupid hours to travel to different towns, sitting in the freezing cold for hours and hours. I was so dedicated, and nothing stopped me from doing it. Even travelling to Nottingham for a day festival and Manchester to see A Day To Remember. I was passionate about going to gigs and i loved it so much. I managed to meet my idols, Charlie Simpson and Mark Hoppus and i couldn't of been happier. According to my last.fm, i've been to 48 gigs which is a lot to me. Recently, i haven't been going to many. My last gig being blink-182, my favourite band in the world. I've had my gig obsession i think, it's time to start spending my money on other things. Unless there's a band i've loved for so long and haven't seen yet, of course!

DIY for the day

So me and my boyfriend got bored today as he'd stopped over the night before, so i decided to take the shelf out the middle of my tv stand. I've never been so proud of anything else hahaha. I love all my plushies i've bought and had given me for birthdays and christmas. Really gives it the final touch ;). God i'm sad, talking about my tv and xbox... Didn't take us long, had to clean dust from everywhere due to having laminate flooring. What an eventful day! (not).

Daisy Dress

Breakthrough! I thought i'd write about this even though it happened a few weeks ago. So all my life i haven't really been one for wearing dresses. I never dressed girly enough to feel good in one. But i was in Peacocks with my mum and couldn't help but notice this cute daisy dress in the sales, i tried it on and i fell it love. It made me feel cute and look really nice (well i felt like i did anyway). £9, bargain!

It might open my mind more to dresses now. Now that i've tried on a few, made myself feel better about how i look in them. Step forward in the right direction, woo :).

Catography




Been busy trying to get on with my college work recently. Hasn't worked much at all, but i did manage to snap a few photos for my sketchbook. One of the themes was observation. So, because i love cats so much i though it was important for me to involve cats into my work somehow! I feel like if i show the college tutors some photography work, they'd get the gist that i'm more of a photography student than an art student. So i decided to snap different features of a cat, really study how they look. Pleased with how they came out.

Purple hair!

I've wanted some sort of purple coloured hair for many years now. I started off putting Live XXL hair dyes over my brown hair, which didn't really have much effect at all. I did this for about a year before i began to bleach my hair. I continued to bleach my hair for a few months til i got it to quite a white/blonde colour on the top, and faded down to a light ginger at the ends. A few days ago i finally had the guts to colour my hair purple (well my friends helped). And it came out a really bright purple, i loved it but i soon found out having bright hair wasn't for me. So i applied a darker purple shade, and this is what the final result it. So happy with it :).

It looks bright when i'm under a light or it's light outside, but if it's getting darker at night or i'm just in a dull room it can look as black as the night. I love it so much!
I used Voilet and Plum Directions hair dye (btw).


Hello :}
