These are some pictures of me, Chloe, Holly and Steph; from a while ago after we went out for a meal. This is just a normal night for us, God we are weird. I can't imagine what my neighbours would think, if they saw us from there window. Ok, I'm showing you these pictures because I adore taking pictures in the dark, when it has a long exposure and everything looks a bit grainy. Anyway we went for the scary theme, ghosts, animals and inside the mind; all and all it was a good night.

I don't know what to say, at the moment I seem to be unsure of everything, I don't know what to do and I'm not feeling that well. I baked some cakes a while ago, I enjoyed that but now I don't know what to do, I'm scared. To blog or not to blog? I've decided to stick to the obvious answer- I'm going to carry on but not very often, I will try, but it may not work. At the moment my life is starting to get very busy, in October I am spending 5 days hiking (D of E), so I can't blog then. I'm going to London only for 3 nights and well don't want to waste any precious time, of course I will talk about ti afterwards. I hope you understand, I'm sorry; here are some pretty pictures and a tagging thing to keep you occupied. Also I'm not going to say I'm sorry for not bloging in any more posts because it is boring you and me. XX

Introducing the Bird Box Bag

Last week I created a masterpiece and here it is with two different outfits for you all to see. What do you think? It is basically a birdbox which my dad helped me to make, him cutting the wood and me varnishing and sanding it. With two straps and a lining made out of the same vintage fabric I made my dungereees out of about a week ago. Surprisingly it is comfy and fits all the basics in, even an umbrella. XX

This world has gone so see through

I'm a rubbish blogger and there is no excuse really, Year 11 is hard and I get a lot of homework but I think what I have been doing is just wasting my time doing pointless things. I really need to learn to be more productive with my time because this always seems to happen in the past few days I've done nothing yet could have done loads...
Anyway, I've been wanting a tailors dummy/ mannequin for ages but with my purse being so small I've never been able to afford one. However, my Grandma volunteers is a charity shop where one was donated so she snapped it up for me, at only £5. I adore the bottom of it, the top is a little faded but it has clothes on it all the time so you don't even see but I love it. Although it does get a bit scary when you see it in the dark (I'm a wimp). XX

Northern lights inspired

Source- Google images- 'Northern lights'

I know you've all seen these Christopher Kane masterpieces from his resort 2011, so this post isn't really about them. Basically for my textiles GCSE I have to make either an evenings wear outfit or a special occasion dress. My inspiration is from the country Norway and so I want to include the northern lights somehow, then I saw his collection and I fell in love. So what do you think of this idea; a cute dress with the Northern lights printed on it? Would you wear it? Oh, and please could you do me a favour and answer my poll because I can't decide whether to do evening wear or special occasion wear. p.s. I'm not copying Christopher Kanes designs I'm just using his as examples.  XX

Peach bowler hat

One last picture to show you of my visit to the country side; this was on the last day, we went on a little walk to some stepping stones and had the most amazing ice creams. I have to admit really liking this photo, the way the dress blows and the square mountain in the background. It was taken by my grandad and in the background you can just see my brothers, trailing behind as usual.
Now onto the hat, I don't think you've seen it before but I have, along with my boater, been wearing it all holiday. I found it deep in the topshop sale for only £10 which for topshop, is good. The only problem is it says on the label 'Not for wet weather conditions' some advice here, should I risk it?  I live in England, it always rains! I also wore it when I volunteered at Bananados all Wednesday and a couple of people complemented me on it. One lady said ' that hat looks good on you, your just the right age to pull it off', another one said 'All dressed up are we?' and a few people said something around I like the hat. It all makes my day, I love volunteering there because of this ability to talk and meet all these wonderful people, even getting mistaken as their hairdressers daughter, which doesn't happen everyday.

Stalked by Ladybirds

So far this year I have encountered about a million ladybird and that is why I'm spamming you with ladybird pictures. This was on a walk so not the most stylish outfit, didn't want to fall in cow pat and wreck it up. This was on the Wednesday when I also had a lovely pub lunch and you can see I customised my boater a bit with a piece of corn- I know imaginative or what? On the Thursday I went to the Zoo but I'm not going to bore you with pictures of monkeys, although I may show you an adorable video of a penguin, it's so cute.
Today was my first day back at school, I liked seeing people but you know there are always the horrible people who think they are better than everyone else, that is why I can't wait to get off to University or somewhere, only 3 more years to go...
Tomorrow, the charity shop I volunteer in, is opening a vintage shop, so I'm going to that, there is also a vintage fair in my town, so I'm there and to top it all of I'm going to my grandmas to pick up something amazing. I have lots to tell you, I'll be back tomorrow night. XX

Woo, school tomorrow, excited much! (Please note Sarcasm here)

Since making this blog I have ended up with a uniform of pretty dresses, so thats why I'm wearing this, a change. It isn't as feminine as the other clothes I wear, yet it is still me; the shorts I can remember admiring in the Jack Wills catalogue for £55, which is way out off my price range, so when they went in the sale for £25 I had to snap them up. Although that is still a lot for just a pair of shorts but they are amazing quality and unlike other Jack Wills purcases, everybody walking down the street doesn't have them. X
