I Have My New Things!

Oh my god, technology and I just don't seem to agree but now I am back online with a new laptop and phone that, hopefully, will not break down on me.

I am sort of ready for 2015. The year kind of went by too fast for me to acknowledge everything that happened but I will get there.

Since it's already after Christmas, I don't really think I can get away with doing a Christmas post but I do want to share the fact that I got a 1985 Singer Model 28 for Christmas from literally the best-est friend in the whole world. It's fully functioning and it even had all the parts I needed for it to work. It took a bit of exploring on YouTube and Wikipedia to figure out how everything worked but I got there at around 1am last night... Yeah, time got away from me.

The thing weighs a ton so I keep it on the floor of my room just because I'm scared that if I leave it on my desk or on top of my cabinet, they will eventually give in and collapse under it.

And for those that don't know, I do have a very modern Singer Tradition (can't remember the number) machine as well which is very, very modern.

Apart from this thing, I do have other things that I desperately need to catch up on so even though I have my new things to play with, I still have a lot of work to do like school work and university preparation (interviews and all that) so I will definitely be back in the new year!

Have a great New Year's Eve and Day! That's all for now. Stay beautiful x

Technological Problems!

So my phone is dead and my laptop is halfway there. This, plus my school blocking access to anything "blogspot", means that, unfortunately, I am unable to post until next year when I plan on getting a new laptop.

The Blogger app isn't the best so I don't really like to use it since posting photos using that thing isn't easy.

Anyway, hopefully I am back for the new year but for now I have to say goodbye...

Merry Christmas and I hope you all have an amazing end to the year! I hope 2014 was an awesome year for you all and I can't wait to see what 2015 brings us!

That's all for now. Stay beautiful x

Trendy Tuesday: Being Interview Ready

This is mainly a post to benefit myself and others that are about to apply or have applied to university and have interviews on the way.

In many ways, the outfit you have to wear to interviews is similar to what you would wear to a job interview - smart, neat and clean. However, I personally think that the outfit you wear to a university interview shouldn't make you look older. Yes, at a job interview, you have to look mature and ready to work but at a university interview, they know how old you are! There's no point in trying to create this illusion.

"College interview / Job interview" by wakley-vanzina ❤ liked on Polyvore

This week, I am planning to buy an outfit or two for my interviews since my wardrobe really doesn't have clothes that are more suitabe for a more formal environment. My go-to decision, for now, is a smart black blazer on top of a playsuit.

romper + long blazer. One of my personal favorite combinations ^_^
I know it's not black in this photo but you get the point

It's a nice smart look but at the same time you show that you are 18 and you're "in with the times." Don't look outdated, especially if your course is related to the real world like Fashion, Media, Journalism etc.

I really like this look. It's grown up but still fun... Something professional/cute to wear to work or a job interview.

Now, before you make a decision about your outfit, it's important to know what the interviews are like and what to expect. Not all universities will tell you directly if it's a very formal interview or a more relaxed conversation. It's best to ask students and staff that are there when you're at an open day or to email the university. Not only does this make you better informed but it also shows them that you are really interested in the course and them too.

And don't forget to smile because...

Especially when you use Colgate Total MouthWash!  I am sampling Colgate Total Mouthwash through for free.

My Favourite Moments of November 2014

It's almost Christmas!!

November really did just fly by and I did forget to log this at the beginning of the month. So, here are my favourite moments of November (from what I can remember):

  • Starting my new temp job. It's been a whole year since I've had one so it's nice to be able to have an income again, even if it's only for a few months.
  • Playing my first (and possibly last) rugby game.
  • My birthday party!
  • Opening my presents the day after my birthday party because I'm an impatient person.
  • Getting 5 replies from the 5 universities that I applied to. None of those replies said "No".
  • Having dinner with my one and only at TGI Fridays. He didn't really eat much, making me look like a pig in front of him, but it was full of laughter and smiles all around. Plus, he was about 15-20 minutes late so the waiter kept me company. He was pretty cool.
This month, I met a lot of new people that are really awesome and nice to be with. It really was a social month for me and I hope that this continues until the end of the year. Working around people does make you realise that even just smiling at them can make their day! It's the season to be jolly so be jolly!!!

I'm 18?!

Watch out, world! I am technically an adult...

It's my birthday today! Now, because it's a school night I couldn't really celebrate it today so I actually had my party last Saturday. Pictures will be up soon I hope.

Anyway, since it was my 18th, people felt it was necessary to buy me, ME, expensive things. We all know I'm the clumsiest person in the world. It's not a secret. Why my friends have decided to give me things that can easily break, I don't know, but they did.

I know flaunting presents can make you look a bit self centred and egotistic but I'm going to do it anyway because my presents are nice and I love them.

And, yes, I did get alcohol (if you count Smirnoff Ice as alcohol. Personally, I don't. To me, it's just lemonade) and half of the bottle is gone already. Nothing happened.

I reacted to this little figure of Daenerys from Game of Thrones more than I did for the rest of my presents. I think it was mainly because this is something different to what I usually expect to get.

A new Juno wallet! My friends were more happy that I got this than I did. Mainly because I've been using a Miss Piggy wallet for years now and I refused to throw it away. It's in the bin now... Those days are gone.

I absolutely love this! It's a wooden box with a sliding lid that has the vintage sewing machine figure on it. For what it is, it's actually quite heavy but now I have something to keep all of my sewing equipment. Do you know what I used before? An ice cream box.

I am not the biggest fan of perfumes and things like that. I have a vast range of perfumes and they are all from other people through previous birthdays and Christmas. The only one that I really wear is the Red Apple DKNY  perfume.

Purple fluffy jumper and a Ralph Lauren Polo jumper. That's pretty much all I can say here.

My collection of tops just continues to grow and grow whilst the amount of bottom I own just sort of fade away - they either rip, stain, I lose taste in them or they don't fit anymore. I have one pair of jeans. I'm not really a trousers person in general so I depend on shorts and leggings.

Last, and certainly not least is the jewellery. Oh my god, my friends are too much sometimes. My boyfriend got me a Pandora bracelet with a heart charm that has the number 18 in the middle and a few of my other friends grouped their money together to get me a Swarovski pendant! I've worn the necklace once already to school. It was a bold move but it survived.

I really am not a fan of fine jewellery but that necklace is just something else. I really do like it! I also haven't taken the Pandora off (except when I shower) since I got it because I just love it so much. A Pandora bracelet is something I never actually thought I'd ever have mainly because of the costs. Beads are so expensive and I thought it would be better to save up and get a lot of beads at once along with a bracelet. That way it wouldn't be bare. But, it actually looks nice with the one bead and I never expected it too. What makes it even more special and amazing is that it came from someone I truly love myself.

That's all for now. Stay beautiful x

Simple Smoothing Facial Scrub Review

I know I've already mentioned that I have sensitive skin. It's a big problem for me because things like facial scrubs, face wash, toners and all the rest of it are really hard to find. I can't just pick one up and use it because there have been many times that my face just goes "No, I don't like this!" and breaks out in spots and rashes as protest.

I've been looking around the land of blog reviews for anything that could come in handy as well as looking for actual products. Now, I did find one at first (Garnier Pure Active) that I was intent on buying until I saw a bad review of it from someone of the same type of skin as me. Product details are always biased - the whole point is to sell the product - so it was good that I found an honest review from someone with a similar situation as myself or else I would have bought it too and would have been disappointed as well. (Click here for the review).

After looking around some more, I found the Simple Smoothing Facial Scrub from Boots. I have used Simple products before but I wasn't particularly happy with it. The brand is made for people with sensitive skin but every now and then my face would still react and I would feel a stinging burning sensation from the products, especially with the facial wipes. It wasn't a nice feeling at all and it meant I had to stop using them. After that I started to rely on natural remedies that I found on Pinterest like oatmeal scrubs and facials to do the job. I still do; my face becomes ridiculously smooth whenever I use those. However, they weren't amazing when it came to keeping spots away. Every now and then I had to use something with chemicals to do the job. For a while I had the Facial Cleanser from It Works thanks to my mum but I never got another bottle of the stuff.

Anyway, I decided to go with the Simple product once again because I couldn't really find anything else. I didn't have the highest expectations from it but it did end up surprising me a little bit. With a little bit of pressure on your palms and fingers, and through a circular motion, it did exfoliate my face pretty damn well. Because of the pressure, the process can get a little bit painful but I think that it's worth it.

The scrub has no moisturizing after effect so, if your skin dried up really quickly like mine, you will need to apply moisturizer onto your face after you use the scrub. 

It's not amazing when it comes to removing make-up (it does take off the majority of it though) so I would pair this with a daily cleanser as well to make sure that your face is clear of everything before you sleep or whatever. There's always a dash of eyeliner left on my face after I use this. It's not a major amount so I can just wipe it off with the tip of my little face towel. 

The bottle is not that big so it's worth buying just to test it out. It's got 75ml of the scrub inside. It's really thin too. Part of the reason of why I bought it is because of the size. If I didn't like it, the amount wasn't too much for me to feel regret about buying it.

It lasts a long time as well! You're supposed to use it once a week but I use it every few days. You only have to use a small amount to cover your face and neck so you get your money's worth from it.

The bottle retails at £3.49 in Boots. An affordable amount and it is what I would expect to pay for a decent facial product.

Special Announcement Time!
So, one of my friends on Facebook posted a petition to get flat coke into McDonald's restaurants... really random, yes, but we do get flat Fanta so it's worth a shot, right? Anyway, I genuinely want to see how well this thing can go so if you want the flat coke or, like me, just wants to see what happens, sign the petition through this link: Flat Coke Petition. Tell your friends!

Trendy Tuesday: Those Christmas Jumpers

They're back! With December just around the corner, those usual, slightly cheesy, Christmas sweaters have creeped back into stores for the taking.

Pale Blue Polka Dot Pudding Christmas Jumper

Personally, I have never owned at actual Christmas sweater with the appropriate decoration and all the rest of it. That doesn't mean I don't like them, I just don't like one on me... 

Not all Christmas jumpers are cheesy and jolly. Some are actually quite nice and are quite forgivable to wear when it's after Christmas as well.

Jade Reindeer Longline Christmas Jumper

Samia Santa Elf Christmas Jumper

YES it's only October but I am getting excited about buying a Christmas jumper.

There are some, though, that I just really love because they are just the cheesiest of the cheese!

Ugly Christmas Sweater win!

Oh, this did make me giggle...

Unisex Elf Costume Christmas Jumper

The closest I'll ever get to being an elf will be through the ownership of this jumper.

17/11/2014 OOTD: I'm A Pink Marshmallow

Okay, it's been a while...Whoops! I do have a genuine excuse, though!

Last week I sprained my ankle and it meant I couldn't really move around the house. I was pretty stationary during the whole of last week and, unfortunately, it was never in front of my laptop. I could have done posts from my phone but the keyboard irritates me and I'm usually more in the mood when I'm in front of a laptop anyway.

I can sort of walk now (if you count an awkward waddle as walking) so I should be okay from now on.

I decided to do this post in particular because the hoodie I wore today reminds people of a marshmallow. It's two sizes too big but, man, it is comfortable!

The black and white skirt is actually a skater dress. I can't wear heels because of my ankle and the dress on its own clashed with the trainers. 

These pictures were taken after rugby training, by the way, so my friends and I were a bit excited as well which led to this...

Personally, I feel that the mint green and the pink worked pretty well together.

I did ask if I could post these on here. I'm responsible.

That's all for now. Stay beautiful x

I've Applied To Uni

I did it, guys! I sent my UCAS application off to be checked by the school I go to and from there, it'll head off to the universities that I've applied to. Hopefully (fingers crossed) I get replies; I'd like at least three just so there's some options and that gives me a better chance of getting in. A reply from all of them would be amazing, though!

Now, it's already been two months into Year 13 and I am feeling the pressure... Homework-wise, the amount I've had to deal with has pretty much doubled since last year and, right now, I really should be carrying on with my Product Design work but I really need time to rest. I just got back from my first rugby game (yeah, I'm active now) and my ankle is absolutely killing me! I fell on it as it gave way under a person and the pain has just been growing and growing over time. During the game, I also ran into one of my own team mates... we were trying to get the same person, okay? We hit each other really hard instead and now we both have cut lips; her cut is so much worse than mine...

This weekend has been ridiculously busy - this week in general has. I've fallen behind on things but I should be able to put myself back on track by the middle of the week. There won't be a Trendy Tuesday post but I could switch it up and do a Trendy THURSDAY instead just to confuse people.

That's all for now. Stay beautiful x

Trendy Tuesday: Checked and Tartan

I am a big fan of checked and tartan clothing and the only reason why I barely have any of it in my wardrobe is because of price and colour avaiability.

Getting my hands all over this when it hits Primark!- Tartan's another big trend this season, can't believe this is Primark!

Sweater: Topshop / Bag: Phillip Lim / Pants: Topshop /... - what do i wear?

Things like red and blue checked clothes and tartans are pretty common because they're basically the traditional colours but the things that I want - purples and pinks - are quite rare. Those colours are also used to make garments that also look quite feminine whereas I tend to wear clothes that are more tomboy, I guess.

Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of the girly clothes but, in terms of my look and what I'm comfortable in, the rock/alternative look is really what I go for.

check skirt + black crop top + oversized denim jacket

This brings me quite nicely onto my own little wishlist. I've searched and there are clothes out there that I want and that I'm almost definitely going to get. I guess this is more of a shopping list, in a way, but there's no way I'll be able to get everything.

Since these photos aren't from Pinterest, I can't and don't want to just copy and paste photos so instead I've hyperlinked my list to the original sites!

Favourite Moments of October 2014

It's winter. It's official. The weather is still pretty warm, though, considering it's November...

Anyway, here are my favourite moments of October:
  • Going to Nottingham Trent University. It's a nice university!
  • Seeing Annabelle with my friends. It wasn't the greatest horror film ever but it was an OK watch and I did like watching my boyfriend get scared... I didn't expect it.
  • DRIVING A CAR! I still don't have my permit by the way.
  • My dress for my 18th Birthday arrived! It's still weeks until I'm actually 18 and the only thing I got excited about was the dress.
  • Halloween! Of course! This year I got to carve pumpkins. It was a hot mess, I'm not going to lie. The insides of the pumpkins seemed to be of an infinite amount! 
It's my birthday soon!! AARGGHH! I'm not ready to be an adult...

Halloween Make Up With The Basics

So, if you're like me, you probably don't have a big variety of make up in your arsenal. I don't wear a full face of make up most of the time so my bag consists of some lipsticks, eyeliner pens and eyebrow powder. But, since I'm also too cheap and too poor to afford Halloween make up, I thought I would venture onto Pinterest (like I usually do) and get some ideas for this Halloween. Dressing up, for me, is probably not going to happen this year but last minute things can still come up!

Anyway, here are some faces that, thanks to Pinterest, are possible with minimal make up:

Halloween makeup

Ignore the eyes. I mean, they look cool but the make up is something that I'm focusing on. All with eyeliner and eyebrow filler! If you do want the eyes, they're £10 - £20 (according to a Google search of "cat eye contacts").

Cat woman make tempted to do this on Halloween at work even though my boss says no costumes... really? lighten up people!

The cat/catwoman look always has been and always will be a popuar choice.


Foundation, eyeliner and lipstick! Done! 
I think the look could be a bit scarier with some red lipstick smudged beneath the waterline.

* Eye-line Fracture * For Blanche Macdonald Makeup student Mimi Choi, Makeup Artistry is all it’s cracked up to be, and more. Check out this incredible trompe l’oeil creative she created with black and white Topshop Magic Liners!

Yes, it is a lot of eyeliner. Yes, it is worth it. You don't have to make that many cracks...

Short Neck Problems

I have an annoyingly short neck and it's starting to get on my nerves a little bit. I think the cold is getting me...

Having a short neck does restrict you quite a bit fashion-wise because not all things you wear are that flattering and can sometimes makes your neck disappear altogether.

Turtleneck sweaters are probably my worst enemy. I've only ever owned one turtleneck and the only reason I wore it was because it was ridiculously warm to wear, especially during the snowy months - what turtleneck isn't? That thing swallowed my whole neck so my chin just sort of sat on top of the fold of the jumper.
Turtleneck, suede skirt<---didnt know a turtleneck could be CUTE. But this is ADORABLE. dude.
Photo from Pinterest
Clothes with a low and wide neckline in general are also things that I avoid personally just because they emphasise the neck and chest area. Whenever I wear a top like that I usually couple it with a cardigan so that there's something close to the bottom of my neck. 

I get really sensitive and self-conscious about it so I am very careful when I choose what clothes to buy. The majority of my wardrobe consists of collared shirts and T-shirts with high round necklines. Look back at my older posts with photos of me and the majority of them have me in a sleeveless collared top. I've got plenty of those...

Jewellery-wise, it's not that bad. Long necklaces are my best friends, though, since they sort of make your neck look longer in photos. You can see how much I think about this!

So that was my little rant/pointless explanation for the day. That's all for now. Stay beautiful x

People That Entertain Me

So I barely watch TV nowadays and I've pretty much moved on to people that exist on the internet. I don't really show my appreciation for others that much on this thing but I do stalk some people, especially YouTubers, quite a bit.

Being a casual blogger, I do spend quite a lot of time looking at other blogs, mainly Geek Chic Notes and Guilianna Marie, for no other reason than I talk to them, sort of. I enjoy reading something if I know the person behind it a little bit; I feel less like a stalker and more like a friend. I got Bloglovin about a week ago, I think, and I just love reading the posts on there. It's also a gateway to other bloggers that I probably wouldn't have come across on my own.

On YouTube, I stalk people to the max. I will spend a whole day watching just one person's videos if I really want to. Finding PewDiePie was a good day! He's not a recent find, by the way. I started watching PewDiePie videos way before he had 2 million bros... I also stalk Cry quite a bit too. Away from the gaming side of YouTube (a big side to it), I love watching vlogs. My personal favourite is Nat (communitychannel). I am convinced, and my friends agree to this, that she is an Australian me. Her sense of humour and the way she speaks and what she actually says are things that I might say and laugh at as well. We have a connection! She just doesn't know it yet.

When I was around 14/15 years old, I absolutely loved beauty vloggers like Bubz and Michelle Phan. Nowadays, make up tutorials and things like that really don't interest me anymore. The only reason I've found is that I've become comfortable with how I do my make up now; I know more about different products now than I did then and I've gotten used to it so much that I can probably wing it with a certain look and it would come out okay. I do love watching Bubz's daily vlogs. Baby Isaac is ridiculously adorable!

So that's a snippet of who I find interesting. I hope you find me a good read (or satisfactory at least) as well.

That's all for now. Stay beautiful x

Trendy Tuesday: Matte Nail Polish

Matte nail polish is something that has fascinated me for quite a bit. I'm not sure where to get matte polish or if I can even afford it (you can tell I've done my research...) but I do know that I want a bottle of the stuff now!

Beautiful Emerald Matte Nails. Polishes. Polish. Nail art. Nail design.

The finish is really nice and I think it looks elegant in its own way. It has a sort of chalkboard effect on your nails and I like how you can use the shiny paint to create patterns on top of the matte. It's like your nails are mini canvasses. Now, I'm not saying that you can't do this with glossy polish - you obviously can. I just find the finish a lot nicer with the contrasts.

I'm not a fan of buying cosmetics online - I like seeing the products in real life and in my hands. I haven't really seen matte polishes around so I need some guidance, please!

#TeenBlogSeries: My Fashion Icon

Vivienne Westwood. A crazy little ginger lady that I absolutely adore!

Vivienne Westwood by Tim Walker | Vogue, October 2009

My obsessions with Westwood and her collections probably started about 4 years ago(-ish) when I started to browse around for influences and designers. This was the time when I was absolutely set on having a career in the fashion industry. I'm applying to Fashion and Fashion Design courses at various universities this year and I really do hope that I get into one of them.

Vivienne Westwood - this look reminds me of Alice from alice in wonderland because alice speaks to wild flowers which are featured on this dress. The off the shoulder look also makes the overall outfit look like she has been walking around for a long time so the dress starts to fall.

Vivienne Westwood RTW Spring 2014 [Photo by Giovanni Giannoni]

Vivienne Westwood's designs are alternative and they don't really meet the expectations that you would have of other designers and companies like Armani and Dior - their haute couture collections, for example, are very glamorous whereas Westwood's ones are more artistic. I'm not saying other designers are generic, no way! They all have their styles and individuality. Westwood's is just the one that appeals to me the most.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label Spring 2014 Ready-to-Wear Collection Slideshow on

I don't hope to be as big as her one day. That's a really high goal to set myself. It's also not like me to go out there and be the centre of attention; I'd much rather work under a company rather than lead my own one. I'm creative, yes, but I'm not a leader. I can be one, though, when I have to be!

So, that's my fashion icon! Who's yours?

A Day Out: I Drove A Car!

Blogger had a meltdown on my laptop yesterday and I couldn't get onto it to post this. Not my fault.

Being an almost-18 year old with no learner's permit saddens me whenever I think about it. I doubt I'll get one anytime soon...

Anyway, to overcome the sadness and the fact that I am not allowed in a car on a road, last year, for my 17th birthday, my parents bought me a driving lesson on what I thought was going to be a track. When I went there yesterday (yeah, I held the thing off for 11 months...) it turns out that the place is actually an old airfield and I was going to be driving around a massive space with no actual roads.

The place was in Upper Heyford. As well as having lessons for people like myself, the place also had driving experiences for people who wanted to drive around in supercars! My dad did this last year in Leicester and he loved it. This was probably the closest I was ever going to get to a Lamborghini and Ferrari...

The weather could have improved a little bit yesterday. Right now, it's pretty sunny outside. 

I did the lesson with two other guys: one was a 13 year old hell-bent on go-karting and driving fast; the other was a 17 year old guy who was actually pretty cool. When the littler one was driving, we were just in the back seats of the car chatting away. He was the first to drive and we were all taking turns so whenever his go was up, he would tell me what to do and give me tips for my go. 

I really liked driving and it wasn't as difficult as I thought it was going to be. It was a lot to remember at first but I managed to pick it up quite quickly. I didn't crash! Or knock down any of the cones they set up for us to drive through and around. My dad was filming me throughout the whole thing. It was so embarrassing when I realised and he did post it on Facebook...

This just made me more desperate to get a permit. My passport is currently in the process of being renewed and I have a job now which means I can pay for it!

Feather Update!

So quite a lot of people know that I wear a singular feather earring quite a lot. It's a blue and purple one. Originally, it was al blue until some feathers were pulled off by accident by a friend. I replaced those with purple ones.

I got bored of it! I took the blue feathers out and replaced THOSE with yellow ones!

I know it isn't a great photo... I took it about five minutes ago and the light in my room is really yellow... You've probably also noticed the constant change in my hair styles. I get bored of that too...

That's all for now. Stay beautiful x

Trendy Tuesday: Ponchos And Blanket Wraps

I got one of these a few years ago as a birthday or Christmas present and back then they weren't as popular, meaning that the one I have now isn't as big or as covering as the ones people have now. I do like it, though, don't get me wrong, for a piece of triangular fabric, it's really warm!

Wraps seem to be slowly replacing your good old-fashioned cardigan (it is around here, anyway) and I really do like the differences between each one in terms of shape, materials and colours. My one doesn't really fit into the trend because it's not knitted to start with. It's also printed with a very happy skulls and cemetery scene along the back so I don't think that it's very appropriate for school.

fall 2014 plaid love  loafers with cuffed pant are legit.

Blanket wraps can go with pretty much anything and it's a nice way to make the transition between summer and winter clothes as the days get colder; you can still get away with shorts or a skirt with tights if you have a thick wrap on top.
