OOTD & Update

Top - H&M
Joni Jeans - Topshop
Shoes (Converse) - Office
Bag - Primark
Necklace - M&S
Jacket - Primark


I am currently typing this from my accommodation at university and it feels a little bit surreal to be here as I visited this university twice, seeing it as a place where I longed to be and now I'm here!
I love my flatmates, we get on so well and I can really connect and relate with each one of them.

It's been a long time since I last posted on my blog which I do apologise for but I just really haven't felt like putting anything up to the honest and that's why I haven't. A part of me did consider not blogging anymore but I realised that it is something I cannot give up as of now. Even if people stop reading it, I see it as a diary or a bit of a time line. I see the way things have changed like my hair, my style, my hairstyle (lol) my fashion decisions and stuff like that.

 I rarely ever read my posts back because I sometimes cringe at what I write but when I do,  my blog allows me to remember what 16-year-old me had going through her mind. Certain lines that I do read trigger a memory of where I was when I typed that blog post, what I was doing, who I was with etc Even the pictures trigger happy (or unhappy) memories of the day I had.

So many things have happened in the past month and even this month that have made me appreciate my life so much more and also made me realised that life is so fragile so endeavour to enjoy every moment that you can. I also know that my faith in God has been strengthened through what has happened over the past few month.

In relation to my outfit, I am loving my new white leather converse from Office. There is something about all white shoes that just adds an extra something to an outfit. So I decided to take some pictures to share them with you because they are gorgeous.

Ooh before I forget, I have braids as you can tell from the pictures. I got them done by my friend, Victoria, about a month ago. Before this, I had not had any form of extensions for about 10 months and it had been almost 2 years since I had gotten full braids. However, I am so happy with how they turned out and its good to give my natural hair a break.

Avec Aztec

Top - Zara
Skirt & Shoes - Primark
Bag - H&M
Earrings - Topshop

Hey guys! 
I am just loving the beautiful weather at the moment. I don't think there is anything more comfortable than maxi dresses and maxi skirts to wear at this time of the year. 

The aztec print maxi skirt I'm wearing here is from Primark, I bought it around October for £3 in preparation for the summer (I started early) and I just love it!
It's so comfortable and the slit at the side just adds a little extra something to it. 

There is a Get Ready With Me video on my channel which shows my makeup, hair and outfit. Feel free to check it out here!

Acid Wash Joni Jeans & 2 Years Blogging

Top & Necklace - Primark
Jeans - Topshop
Heels - New Look

Hey guys!
Just a quick post of an outfit I wore to church on Sunday.
I love outfits like these because it's literally jeans and a top, so so simple.

I've worn these jeans non-stop since I got them, they are so comfortable and feel like leggings when they are on. I probably need to stop mentioning them because they are the only jeans I've talked about since I first bought them.

It has also been 2 years since I started my blog which was on the 26/06/2012 and I have also reached over 13,000 views which is just crazy. Although I still cringe at the first post I wrote, I am really glad that I did.
Thank you to everyone who reads my blog, it seriously means everything to me!

Thanks for reading!

Hello Yellow

Top: Zara
Jeans: Topshop
Necklace: Forever21
Bag: Primark
Shoes: Primark

I bought this crop top on sale from Zara yesterday and I just love it, hence why I wore it!

It is very similar to the ones which Topshop have right now which are £8 but I got this for £3.99. Who doesn't love a good bargain? 
The Zara sale at the moment is amazing.

In May I...
...finished college
...started my exams

That is pretty much all that happened in May because I was just so stressed about exams!

In June I..
..revised A LOT
..finished my exams yaaaaay
..watched High School Musical 1,2 and 3 back to back..
...went to see the film, X-Men with my family

Thanks for reading!

New Purchases

Hi guys! 
My exams are officially over, I've been waiting for this moment since February so just imagine the excitement I am feeling right now.  I do feel that I need to do something more productive with my days, not having the stress of exams has made me feel like I don't have a goal which I'm working towards, if that makes sense?

Anyways on with the post...
Last week I bought three things which I love so here they are!

I bought these Joni jeans last week from the Topshop website which were on sale for £18, I absolutely love them. These are the fourth pair I have bought; they are just my favourite jeans ever.

Victoria's Secret were having a sale and my friend bought me this fragrance mist which was only £2! It smells incredible and I actually really like the way the bottle looks. 

Lastly is this bag from H&M. I normally only buy black bags or bags which have black on it somewhere because black goes with everything right? However I decided to live on the wild side and buy a totally tan bag! It so spacious and I just love it.

I recently had a sleepover with one of my favourite 7 year old in the world. She loves strawberry laces, I love strawberry laces and so it was only right that I bought us strawberry that's the really fascinating and interesting reason why there is a packet of strawberry laces in my bag.

I have also been trying to drink 2 litres of water a day, trying is the key word here. I was doing pretty well until the third day...but I'll keep trying!

To the Maxi

Top - H&M
Maxi dress - Boohoo
Shoes - New Look
Necklace - Marks & Spencers
Watch - Argos
Bag - Zara

It's mid June! I can't believe how much time has flown!
My last exam is 9 days! It's gone by soo quickly, I remember thinking how am I gonna get through all these exams and now I'm almost at the end.
I cannot wait. 

I can't begin to explain how much I love dresses! There's a certain freedom that dresses give which jeans could never give, if you know what I'm saying? 
This dress is a maxi dress I got from Boohoo last summer and the white top is the the one I was wearing in my last post which I will link here

I just put it on over the dress and I really liked the way it looked. 

Thanks for reading!

Bright Light

Blazer - Primark
Necklace - Primark
Top - H&M
Bandeau - USC
Jeans - Topshop
Shoes - USC
Watch - Ebay

I like that I'm not wearing anything black here! Nothing more to say about this outfit really, apart from I really liked it because it was bright and reminded me of summer!

This post is long overdue seeing as it is nearly the end of May!
Just like most students around this time of the year, I have been revising all day, errr day. I finish my exams on the 23rd of June and I CANNOT WAIT.

I will be free.
Free from ink all over my hands.
Free from my alarm disturbing me at 6:11am, to be exact.
But for now, my Psychology studies, my Law cases and my Business key terms will remain my best friends.

In April I...
...lost my voice from singing, laughing and shouting too much in one weekend
...watched the film, Frozen (twice)
..picked up two dead mice at a friend's house (long story)

Thanks for reading & Good luck with exams if you have any.
