Instagram Catch up! #7

So i might have shamelessly gone on a bit of a spree, no better feeling than starting your new job knowing you haven't got many bills to pay for, me still living at home i pay board weekly so it leaves me with enough money to spenddddddd. And i may have done that, just a tiny bit... I finally upgraded my phone, a brand new one too! I've never actually owned a brand new iPhone, they've always been second hand so that was a great feeling, plus the phone is flawless. I also got my new camera which i am in LOVE with, i love it so so much. And of course my iPad mini, they're all my babies and i take great care of them, i'd probably cry if any of them broke. I like technology okay?


 
If you didn't read my post, i did visit Wales for a few days and i miss it so much. Was such a good feeling to get away from real life for a few minutes and relax despite the gloomy weather, it was still amazing to see the sights and oh my the houses were so colourful! So refreshing.
 A few outfits! I really need to start doing more OOTD cause i'm at a place where I'm feeling really confident and i just want to show the clothes i find for such good prices, you know me I'm a total bargain hunter. My first dress being from Forever 21, the second outfit top is from select and jeans from New Look and my top in the last picture from Primark! Told you i liked bargains ;)

I'm really bad at doing these catch ups, there were a lot more photographs but i thought i'd leave it at 9, a nice small number :3. 

Outfit of the day #1


(I never do outfit posts so I'm gonna change that right now)
Now if it was a few years back i would never have imagined loving crop tops as i do now, years ago they were seen as quite a revealing piece of clothing and not everyone found them nice to wear. But now I'm so glad they've bought back this fashion and made them in styles that seem a lot more classier and cuter to wear. I'm creating quite a collection of crop tops at the moment, most of them being quite baggy and oversized as i think they're quite a casual thing to wear but you still can look super cute wearing one. I got this one from a shop called Select for £7 i think, i just fell in love with it and i love any sort of flower on a top at the moment! I love my high waisted jeans too (from New Look) as they show a tiny bit of tummy and that makes me feel more confident that i can do that now. I'd never have been able to do that before, yay for a tiny bit more confidence eh?

The Females are taking over, music that is

I am very much into my music, and i have an open mind, i am open to listen to anything because why not? Why live keeping your mind to only one genre? One thing i have been noticing how powerful the music from such amazing females have been taking over pop culture recently, not loved by everyone but they're doing something right to be doing so good in the charts. So if this isn't the kind of music you like, that is completely fine and i hope you can still enjoy my little post anyways!
Now Marina has been around the music industry for years, yet it wasn't until Primadonna Girl was released that she was actually noticed with the attention she fully deserves. Electra Heart is full of songs so catchy you'll be singing them days after listening to the album, she really took a shine to millions of people with this album and of course her unique styles she's adapted to. My two favourite songs are Homewrecker and Bubblegum Bitch, two upbeat songs that are fun but also serious, that is Marina rolled into one.
Now i am completely in love with the ever so controversial Miley Cyrus, yes she is a complete nutter and has gone way off the scales now but i have adored her ever since Hannah Montana and i can't fault with her acting or singing. Considering she shows such a trashy style now her newest album is perfection, she balances some slower ballad types to the funner and faster pop songs and i feel like it's a great direction in her music career. She is experimenting with different music styles and it's suited her so well. Look behind all the craziness of her image and you see quite a talented young woman.
Now it took me way too long to get into Iggy, as i felt weird hearing such a lower rapping voice come from a woman and yeah i judged way too hard and now i really love her style of music. She is absolutely adorable considering she's this hip hop girl with a big ego. Her rapping skills i must say are flawless and i'm beginning to enjoy her music a lot more than before. She came together with Ariana Grande to create Problem and that song is literally perfection, go listen to it now!
Last but certainly not least is Lorde, a very young girl who appeared randomly on the charts with a song that stuck in everyones head for months, still to this day is such a popular song it's hard to get out of you head. I must say Royals is probably the least best song on the album, every single song on that album is perfect. Lorde has such a chilling tone to her voice it really is such a calming album and i feel like every one should give it at least one listen cause it's so different i know you'd love it, trust me. I really hope her fame continues because her talent is flawless and she's bloody younger than me!

Other artists such as Charli XCX are storming their way into our ears everywhere nowadays and i'm really enjoying all the female power that's happening currently in 2014! Does anybody else like these artists or are you super against music like this?! Let me know in the comments.

If I had my own place #1

So, for a very long time I've been very interested furniture, sounds boring but I absolutely cannot wait til the day I can actually go out shopping for my own place. I've only got to go into wilkinsons to get a snack and I'm upstairs drooling over the furniture they have in there. So I thought I'd create this mini series of furniture styles I like if that's okay with you guys! I really want to get back into blogging and I feel like this is a great way to start and it will keep me active in the blogging world too. I'm sure i will have plenty of lifestyle posts like this as there is never too much furniture to post about.

I had a cheeky look on Wilkinsons actual website and to be honest i felt let down, i just feel like going in store there is so much more to look at. Specially with the little ornaments and nick nacks to put around your house. But i picked out a few i loved, kept it on the neutral side for this one as i find these colours absolutely perfect for a calm natural environment. I always want a nice calm vibe to my house when i eventually move and i feel like these colours and ornaments would fit perfectly~

I know it was only short but i'm really enjoying doing this so far and if anything it's making me want to remodel my room haha! Which did you like most? Or didn't you like any? Everyone has their own taste!

Wales




Wales is a magical place, it really was good to get away and breathe what seems like much fresher air. Maybe too much fresh air, wind wind and more wind. No complaints though. I thought I'd let my photographs explain my trip as i feel like i captured quite gorgeous sights and i can't really explain how beautiful it is there without seeing it yourself. I went to Borth, Aberystwyth and Barmouth and it really was so nice to go to a different scene, hardly any buildings, fields and fields of nothing, not forgetting the millions of sheep i saw within those three days away haha! I found a lot of peace being away from home, kind of refeshing my body and relaxing. I did walk, a lot. But thats what you do when you travel! It's good to be home, but it'll always be a place i will always go back to.

Hope everyones day is going well.
