So call me maybe! OOTD

Getting ready is all part of the fun when you are going on a night out. However, though I find taking my time to put on makeup and do my hair I HATE deciding what to wear. Everything I want to wear is almost always in the wash and I always end up stressed out.

Monday night however was completely different. I had an idea of what I was going to wear  and when I put it on I didn’t like it very much for a night out so I switched to my ever trusty black skirt. I bought this top from International when I was at home, it was 2 for £10 so I got this lovely colour and yellow. I am normally a size 10 but I found the top looked tight over my chest so ended up getting a 12. My black skirt is way too short but luckily with this top I was able to wear it just under the belly button and my bum stayed covered all night(at least I think so). I got the skirt from H&M over a year ago and it is very often my choice of skirt for a night out matched with a coloured top of some sort.

Monday night was very cold so I wore my knitted cardi from ARK. This is my favourite cardigan!!! I love how it’s oversized and of course burgundy. Super warm, super cosy and super cute.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week! As usual my week to do work has been wasted and now I am terrified because there is so much to be done! Ahh!

Happy Colours! NOTD

Button Moon//Hoola Hoop//Lemon Soda//Teeny Bikini//Fruit Loop
Today I am in such an excitable mood, so I thought rather than just using one nail colour I would use five. All of the colours are from Collection 2000's 'Hot Looks' range. I couldnt help buy them as they seemed to be on special offer everywhere! I picked up two from Superdrug for £3 and 3 for £5 from Wilkinsons! I wanted to use Mint Mojo (featured here) but couldnt find it so used Fruit Loop (which is the colour on my pinky finger).

My Week in Photos #7 (sort of)

So I didn’t take any photos this week and you can see why... My phone screen had been smashed for a few weeks but still worked and this week the touch decided to stop as well (boo!) I will be getting a replacement soon and hopefully I will be able to get my beloved iphone fixed when I save up a little money.

Honestly this week was quite eventful from Wednesday when I got back to Derby. Obviously being back in my parentless Uni house was the perfect opportunity to have a big night out and not worry about the noise we make because it is still the University holiday which means no early lectures for anyone! I won’t go into details because I don’t like to play the victim but we have had a falling out with our housemates (oops?). On the same night I found that the touch screen on my phone stopped working so was in a massive rage (being drunk didn’t help). Then just to top off the week I ended up getting ill, aching muscles, snotty nose, fever, and not being able to sleep put me in a very ‘woe is me’ kind of mood.

All this aside I had a great time at home with my family, and (minus the drama) Wednesday night was awesome and I am glad to be back with my friends! Now if only I could stop being so lazy and do some work that would be marvellous! (if I do get any work done then expect some outfit posts and vlog’s this week!)

p.s. I noticed I say ‘we’ a lot...I’m referring to myself and my housemate/friend.

Collection 2000 'HotLooks' in Mint Mojo NOTD

I originally planned to post this tomorrow but yesterday I went shopping yet again and bought three new ‘Hot Looks’ nail polishes! So I decided to try and put up nail posts more often so that I can start to try and do some nail art (trust me it won’t be pretty but I’ll give it a try).

I really wanted a mint green nail polish and as I’m all for cheap and cheerful I went for Collection 2000’s ‘Hot Looks’ nail polish in the colour ‘Mint Mojo’. I applied three coats on my nails to achieve this colour, and I do like it but I am a little disappointed, I was hoping it would be a bit brighter. My nephew said I had bogie fingers when he saw the lovely.

Strawberries and Cream OOTD

Last night I went to play Bingo with my mum and her friend, (I know – how young of me, but it really was fun.) I thought I may as well make an outfit post as I haven’t included my white shirt before.

My boyfriend bought me this white sleeveless shirt from Topshop for Christmas. I have got a lot of use out of it since I got it, tucked into shorts and skirts and over leggings. Last night when I was getting ready I thought It would look so cute with my new pastel pink jeans!! The pink made the shirt look all the more girly and delicate. I absolutely love how floaty the shirt is, and the longer back means no feeling self conscious when wearing it over leggings (constantly terrified of having a VPL and not realising it ha ha.) I have no idea how much the top was as it was for Christmas though I found a top on Topshop’s website that looks the same but pink and that was £30 (find it here.)

Just a short post today to show off my shirt and once again flaunt my new jeans as they have become my new babies.

My Week in Pictures #6

It’s been my first week home from Uni in AGES!!! Sadly I can only stay for a week and a half and that week is nearly over!! The weather was beautiful and I spent a lot of time in the garden taking pictures of flowers with instagram(what a party animal!).

One of the best parts about being home is mummy’s cooking!!! Sadly I was too busy eating all of the delicious dinners she made me rather than taking pictures of them so I just ended up taking pictures of the incredibly unhealthy and fatty puddings I was eating!

 Being home and away from constant Uni work meant I could write more blogs than usual. I bought the MUA eyebrow pencil a few weeks ago and finally got around to reviewing it here. I got the chance to go shopping with a friend and got an outfit post (here) and a nail post (here) out of it as well as some really good conversation!

For my Alevel textiles two years ago I did a lot of knitting, when I came home and saw the needles I thought I would do some more. I looked like such a granny knitting away in my pyjamas! My sister was moving house this week so on Friday I went over to help paint my nephews room blue. I ended up taking my shoes off because I didn’t want to get paint on them and then stood in the paint giving me some interesting coloured feet!

I'm sad to be going home on Wednesday but looking forward to seeing my boyfriend and getting some work out of the way! Hope everyone had a fabulous week.
