Pokemon GO

Pokemon is changing the world. My younger self is screaming with excitement for this new revelation. I grew up with an older brother which I am SO thankful for, I pretty much loved everything he did, which included Pokemon. I would steal his Pokemon cards and pretend I was as cool as he was with his collection. So when this idea of an APP that could bring Pokemon to the real world, it sounded amazing. The hype was real and we were all ready for it...

So July 6 appeared and so did Pokemon GO. Only released in certain countries that didn't include the UK, my heart was breaking. Not being able to play the game the same time as everyone was PAINFUL, it didn't take long for people to find out how to play it in the UK, so I raced to make my account and start playing. Working indoors 8 hours a day, I certainly got off to a slow start... I couldn't exactly tell my boss I was off out to walk around my local park for the rest of the day, I bloody wish I could.

Pokemon GO is actually life changing. It's getting people out and active in our real world, venturing through places they probably never would have thought to go to. I can tell you now I haven't walked home from work in the past year and I haven't stopped walking since this game was released. Along with actually living your childhood dream, you're fucking walking all over the place. I'm actually exercising you guys. With hatching eggs, you kind of need to walk distances and it's definitely helping to make me a lot more active. 

So... I'd love to see who else is playing it! I'm seeing a few cheeky tweets of Pokemon GO findings on twitter, and it's so great to see. I'm even texting my brother daily talking about it now, it's madness! It's only the beginning too, I'm so excited to see where the company that's behind this genius app goes next. There's so much to look forward to, I can't wait :).

OOTD ✿ Pinstripe Pinafore

Just a quick little post from me today, I absolutely needed to show you my fabulous recent purchase. Primark have been killing it with the Pinafores this year, whoever gave them the hint that they were the absolute shit, i salute you. I could live in these beautiful pieces of clothing if I tried. I'm having to hold back every little last bit of me from buying ALL OF THE PINAFORES. My bank account wouldn't be too happy with that though, so I'm resisting (for now).

I picked up this beautiful Pinafore from the mini Primark section of Birmingham's Selfridges. Makes you feel sassy as hell walking out with a Selfridges bag knowing you bought a £12 item from Primark. I always try and check out the Selfridges Primark bit, they display the limited amount of clothing so nicely, and it's never untidy... If you don't fancy walking around three floors of havoc, I would highly recommend a quick browse in that wonderful giant bean(?) of a shopping centre. 

For £12 I was pretty chuffed with my purchase, with straps that can be adjusted it's a perfect buy. I styled it with my 'Lets Taco About It' tee (also from Primark) and a pair of black Converse. Perfect little summer outfit.
