Watering Cans

I've been such a slacker again this week post wise. It's due to a combination of things - I got a new job with a promotions company so that has taken up all of my days (It's to do with this weight loss campaign that's happening around Liverpool and I have to wear a hot pink rain mac whilst I'm doing it) and the weather has been very changeable which means I've just been throwing any old thing on just so I won't get caught out by the rain... Plus I haven't found anyone patient enough to take photos for me.

This is one of my favourite dresses because I love the cute watering cans design on it. The sleeves are really cute as well so when it warms up a bit I'll wear it sans jacket and leggings and show off more of the detail.



Dress - Joy, Denim Jacket - D&G, Belt and Leggings - Topshop

The next two things are from a game we were playing at my friends the other night - "You're in the Movies". If you have an Xbox I would highly reccommend it because it is such a fun party game. You have to play a couple of rounds doing silly things to get all of the actions and then at the end it gets put into a film - all very clever! The first one we did was better but this was the only one I remembered to record. At the end there is a little awards ceremony - I came last in both films as my 'acting' is atrocious!


My computer is not playing ball with regards to uploading the video so here is the link:

Me, Me and Me

Now I'm off to the beach to make the most of the sunshine!
Back from the beach - I forgot to mention that I was given this award from both Syd Vicious Lives and Through the Wilderness so thank you so much to them and I promise I will pass them on in a post next week but for now I am VERY sunburnt (in England? As if!) and need sleep!

Wet Weekend

It has been so wet and miserable this week that for the most part I've been snoozing and watching Come Dine With Me, so dressing half decently hasn't been top of my list of priorities. I just want summer to be here - sunshine and a bit of warmth isn't too much to ask for surely?!

I went out for dinner avec mes parents ce soir and wore this jumpsuit. I had to wear it with the blazer (price per wear must be about 0.0003 pence now I reckon) because it is too chilly to go without.

My Dad was also desperate to be featured on my blog (I think he got a bit jealous that my mum has been on it and he's been overlooked - theres a good reason for that, sorry daddy!) so he got me to take a picture of him in his new jacket. My sister says it looks like something Elton John would wear - probably not something he wanted to hear after spending four hundred pounds on it.
Jumpsuit - H&M, Shoes and Necklace - New Look, Blazer - Charity Shop, Bag - Gioseppo


I also thought I'd share a couple of pictures from my camping trip which took place at the weekend. It was really fun but incredibly wet. We ended up in Llangollen in Wales and were able to cheat a bit at the whole camping idea because one of my friend's sister lives in the town in a gorgeous (warm and dry) cottage and was happy to provide us with cups of tea and shelter.

Our Campsite:

Me looking really butch - check out the socks and walking boots combo:
Two of my friends bought a kids tent - Charlotte is about 5ft10 and Tom is about 6ft4 - they encountered a few problems trying to put it up:
Lovely warm and dry cottage:
All the merry campers:

From these pictures the weather looks lovely - in reality it was really strange. We had sunny intervals and then torrential rain in between (more rain than sun) and it was pretty windy as well. I wouldn't mind going back if and when it gets a bit warmer though - 5-10 Degrees is just not tent temperature.

Sorry for any really late replies to comments - hopefully I'll be able to do that more promptly now because my exams are over... which means I'm FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE until late September - a ridiculous amount of time off.

Just a quick post because I am going camping today (I really hope the weather stays OK because it was forecast torrential rain I think - my dad said rather than buying a tent I should invest in an aqua lung - always full of bright ideas).

This is my outfit from yesterday - I don't know why the picture is all bright and wierd but I didn't have time to sort it out. The demin jacket is a D&G one I've had since I was about 12. I think I wore it about three times back then, but I've rescued it from the depths of my warderobe and I think I've worn it about three times this week which is good! Finally getting my moneys worth.


Last night I went to a chav fancy dress party - it was the most comfortable evening ever - just sat around in a tracksuit - maybe I'll do it more often! Chav is a difficult one because in my opinion, unless you go really OTT, people might think that is just how you dress. I didn't get a full length shot unfortunately, but I think the beautiful hair and makeup is enough!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

PhotobucketGood old K-Mo.

P.S. For those of you across the pond who are unfamiliar with the term 'chav', wikipedia describes it as 'an aggressive teenager or young adult, of working class background, who wears branded sports and casual clothing, who often engages in anti-social behaviour, and is often assumed to be unemployed or in a low paid job.' Hope that clears that up!

Glads & Tags

Firstly, I bought this ice cream today - if you haven't had one before you have to push it up and then when you've finished there are Smarties in the little stick bit. I was trying to get the stick out to enable me to consume the rainbow goodness, got a little too enthusiastic and dropped them all on the floor. They were gobbled up by pigeons almost instantly.


Secondly, the boyfriend got me these Gladiator sandals for part of my birthday present (only a month and a day late) from River Island. I'm not usually a massive fan of theirs because they stamp their name on EVERYTHING, but these lovelies have avoided the branding which means that they can come home with me.


My feet aren't really a strange colour like this.

And finally, I was tagged by Ruta from Look Ugly in Photograph last week and have only just got round to doing it:

New York Red

Not a very interesting outfit because once again I've just been revising (eight days to go!). I did however wear a spot of red lipstick - Chanel's 'New York Red' (I would recommend their lipsticks because they have got serious staying power), so I thought I may as well feature it on here because I do really like it, but at the same time don't really suit it (hence the reason why it doesn't get worn very often).

I do however love how lipstick looks on black and white photographs - nice and dark!




Blazer - Charity Shop, Dress - Urban Outfitters, Head Scarf - My Mum's, Shoes - Office, Ring - Manchester Airport, Belt - Independent Shop

I seem to have got myself addicted to Vitamin water - that was the second one of the day and it's an expensive habit. It's lovely! I did start off taking the outfit pics in my boyfriend's overgrown back garden but for some reason I just looked really lost and confused in all of them and he was getting impatient so in the end a quick snap in H&M changing rooms had to suffice (plus a cropped garden pic so I could feature the shoes).

Bed time for me - getting an early night for once. Hope everyone is having a lovely week!

Drip Drip Drop

Exams, Exams, Exams.

It has been raining all week. And pretty cold too! I have had to welcome back my tights a couple of days this week - it's a good job I didn't move them all out of my room and back home like I planned to - cast ne'er a clout til may be out and all that jazz.

Apologies for the lack of posts, I've had my head (which is going to explode soon) stuck in a text book for what feels like seventy-two years. In actual fact it's only been about two weeks, but we'll over look that. Anyway I haven't done anything of particular interest - the highlight was probably looking after my cousin and his rabbits yesterday (even though this one scratched me right after the photo was taken), and the sun came out for a couple of seconds this afternoon so I dragged the boyfriend to the park to take a picture of my outfit.






Yesterday's outfit: Rainmac - H&M, Dress - Zara, Necklace - Dorothy Perkins, Gold pumps - George at Asda
Today's outfit: Dress - Vintage, Green T-Bar sandals - Kurt Geiger, Watch - Cartier, Glasses - Chanel

I'm glad that other people also suffer with the shiny hand thing!

Another thing that I have learnt is that the ice cream van comes round at exactly twenty past four in the afternoon - which is a useful piece of information. I obviously have gone mad though because I keep thinking that I have his number and I can call him, rather like a taxi when I want my fix, and then get really disappointed when I remember that I just made that up.

This was a rather boring post - Next time I'll stop moaning about my work and try to find something interesting to say... Promise!
