I spent my student loan on… #1

1. Newlook - Sold out online, 2. Simply Be -Here, 3. Dr Martens - Here, 4. Converse - Here.
So today i was paid from next and also got my student loan through ! So the only reasonable thing to do was go on a shopping spree ! Don't worry i haven't gone too crazy i still have enough left to see me through uni :)
But here is a small snippet of what i bought !

1. I have wanted something camouflage for a while now and actually tried this tee on but decided against it in the last minute because i wasn't 100% but after seeing it in the sale for only £4 i couldn't resist ! I think it will look great with my leather look skirt.

2. I have seen these trousers on a few blogs now and i really loved the look of them ! I wasn't too sure about sizing as i have never ordered trousers from Simply Be so i went down to the store and tried them on. I had to get a size bigger than usual but i really love them ! I think i am going to buy a white peplum top to go with them and maybe my leather jacket.

3. I have wanted a new pair of Dr Martens for ages but couldn't bring my self to spend the cash ! But with all the rain i need a decent pair of boots and black never go out of fashion plus the fact Dr Martens are virtually indestructible so i don't have to worry about them falling apart !

4. Finally i got my black high top converse ruined in Singapore earlier this year and ever since i have really wanted a new pair ! This time i went for low tops and decided to spend the little extra and upgrade to the leather ones.

Have you spent all your loans yet or are you far more sensible than i ?

Uni so far..

Well i have only had some introductutory lectures ! So as far as acadmecially wise its all fine ! My friend moved to Manchester and luckily one of her flat mates is on her course and she is lovely ! Unluckily shes now been put in a seperate group ! So as far as making friends on my course i havnt really but to be honest there hasnt been any time to speak to people during the lectures so im hoping next week goes better ! I did however sleep at my friends flat during the week and got to meet all her flatmates and people from her flat block and nearly all of them are super nice ! we went to a little flat party and played some drinking games and then took the party back to my friends and we didnt go to bed untill five !! then the next day we went the freshers fair where i have put my name down for the film society and the fashion society so hopeully give me a month or so and i will be a social butterfly haha :)

I heart it #4

This week has been a rather strange week for me. Here are some of the pictures i have hearted and some reasons behind it :)

An odd picture i'm sure your thinking ! well my week started off with my first ever trip in an ambulance ! I have been complaining of a sore back on and off for a week or so and then on monday night when i went to bed it was really sore and when i woke up i just couldn't move or sit up the pain was unbearable so i had to get an ambulance to the hospital ! Turns out its something called Sciatica and its just basically a trapped nerve at the bottom of my spine. I'm a lot better now i was sent home with a lot of pills and told to rest so i'm nearly all better thank god !

Now to cheer you up after that depressing story haha. I found this picture and as a sucker for a cat photo's i really fell in love with it ! Its like the feline answer to Godzilla :)

Also this week before my back incident i went down to my local Brownie troop to become a volunteer ! All in my master plan to go to camp america next year ! I need experience with children so i thought this would be the best place to start and everyone there seems really nice :) 

I seen this picture and it made me think of how sometimes i worry a little too much about the number of followers on my blog ! But as the picture states the number of followers does not determine your worth ! and i am rather happy having a small number of loyal followers :)

And last but not least ! With everything going on with my back i had completely forgotton until yesterday that tomorrow i start university !! My friend moved into her flat yesterday and says one of her roommates is on my course and is really nice so at least there is some hope there ! More than just friends i think i'm scared i wont be able to do the work as doing a Fashion Btec we never did any essays or referencing and i haven't taken an exam since my GCSEs ! so i'm not sure how quick i will be able to catch up with those coming from A Levels ! Hopefully it will all go fine though :)
Now i just have to worry about what to wear !

My Hairstory !

Since I have started this blog my hair has been on an epic journey ! I have changed my hair more in this one year than i have my entire life ! Here is a collage of all the hair styles i have had so far ..

1. So firstly is me with long hair in my natural colour ! This is basically the hair i had for nearly all of my life. Growing up i got my hair cut about once a year a habit i fear i slightly brought into my later life as i do have a kind of phobia of hairdressers ! I find all the forced small talk intimidating :/ 

2. When i started my fashion course i didn't realalise that my college was solely an arts college therefore everyone there was very creative and there was a lot of different styles and alternative looks ! I think this is where i started feeling a lot more adventurous with my style and took a big leap and went ginger ! I did love my ginger hair ( although my boyfriend HATED it ) but my roots where just too much and it kind of ruined my hair all the bleaching. 

3. After having enough with my awful roots when i was ginger i re bleached the ends and put turquoise on and then dyed my roots black. I really loved this look ! I then went on to have purple in my hair but i have no proper pictures of that. 

4. My hair was absolutely destroyed by all the bleaching and i had all the dip dye cut off ! Which added up to a whopping 10 inches ! This is the shortest i had ever had my hair ! 

And with out further ado ! I have had my hair changed again .. 

That's right i have gone super short ! I was going to go for a kind of Miley Cyrus look but the hairdresser suggested more like Frankie Sandford ! I really love it :) and the strange thing is i feel a hell of a lot more girly with my hair this short than i ever did with long hair ! This is by far the most extreme thing i have done to my hair yet and i could not be happier :)

Oh i do like to be beside the seaside !

So my boyfriend has had a week off work so with the great weather we decided to go to New Brighton, which is a kind of seaside resort near Liverpool. I really love it there, my dad used to take me and my sister all the time when we where kids ! It was a big arcade and a small fair. Here are the pictures :)

My best tourist pose

No idea why my eyes look closed ! But isn't the lighthouse pretty :)

Finally wore my Moschino backpack out :)

The monkey we almost won ! We spent over £5 trying and evan lifted it up but sadly never won him :(

The Waltzers 

Me and the Bf trying to take pictures whilst we were spinning round :) 

We had such a fun day ! hope we get to go on another day out soon :) 
How was your weekend ?

ootd plus mini catch up :)

So on my last post i promised to be a better blogger and that this week i definitely would because i actually had things going on ! Well there was my downfall i had so much going on i didn't actually have time to blog ! Between days out and working by the time i got home ( if i was sleeping at home at all that night ) i was far too tired to blog :( Hopefully once i start university in the next few weeks and my job hours get sorted along with my timetable i can get back into a routine :)
So here is an ootd from sometime this week ( i can't remember which day )

Jacket - Vintage Levi, Top - Primark, Skirt - New Look Inspire, Leggings- Topshop, Shoes - River Island.
I wore this for a meal out and trip to the cinema with my boyfriend. I really love this outfit ! I love the skirt and haven't stopped wearing it since i got it ! Its a leather look skirt and the material is very light and shiny. It just goes with so many things but i especially love it with this top from Primark as i think the maroon and leather look really good together and as i mentioned in a previous post the material on the top is the sort you find on american sports jerseys so the different textures looked really good together as well :) I think this is a possible outfit for my first day of uni !

And instead of boring you with many posts about my days out this week i thought i would condense it all into a collage :) 
At the top is a photograph i took at Mickey's Magic Show which i went to see with my cousin. I think we where the only people there without a child haha but i loved it ! It was really good and it wasn't just Mickey and Minnie they had nearly all the princesses appear and some of the baddies too ! 
The second photograph is of all the dvds me and my friend lauren watched at sleepover at hers this week ! I love showing friends some of my favourite films that they've never seen before :) 
Thirdly is a photograph from the restaurant me and my boyfriend visited ! It was a Chinese restaurant and the entrance is a bridge over a coy fish pond and fountain it was so pretty that i had to take a picture. 
And last but not least is my friend Lauren's cat Alex sneaking a peak at us from inside a build a bear box ! I love cats and Alex is the best cat in the world so i couldn't not put this picture up :) 

So thats basically everything i have done this week ! How was your week ?
