Christmas '12


Can you believe it? Christmas is just round the corner!!!! The Christmas tree has been up since the 2nd December. We've decorated it in silver and purple decorations instead of just silver like we did last year.

Cool Iced


Gosh, it's freezing, but no snow :( (yet!) Finally finished my Christmas shopping, next the wrapping which I am so not good at! Anyway, I fancied dressing up a little to go shopping (we have a strong relationship!) and here are the photos...

Blackout


I have always stuck to a 'rule' of only wearing one black item, I don't think I've stuck to it today though!! I wore this outfit last week but I've taken pictures to show you, have a relaxing weekend, only 9 days till Christmas :)

Buckle it Red


My best friend brought back this gorgeous mini purse from her travels in Ireland which I paired with a red stripe jumper from Primark and a mini skirt with leggings, perfect for a winter walk by the river!

The Blue Jumper


Knitwear is perfect for Autumn and Winter. I've been looking for a while and found this: a lovely blue/ teal jumper with 3/4 sleeves from Next. It has really completed my weekend.

A quick post today before I revise for my mocks. Unfortunately, the week hasn't been my favourite as I've been revising, and doing mock exams ready for January (yay...) Hopefully your week has been better.

Pearl Test


I'm wearing two of my favourite pieces, my t-shirt from Next with a little bow at the side and my soft pink cardigan from New Look. I have had a great day today, watching Puss In Boots and his cute kitten eyes! Can't wait to watch Skyfall, I've heard it is amazing

Raining Gold



Going to the park without an umbrella and guess what happens? It starts to rain of cause!!! And it's freezing cold, I should have worn boots and a scarf, I guess Winter is coming quicker than I thought...

Sunshine Blog Award

Amelia from ParisWhenItsPink nominated me in September (I know, it's really bad of me for avoiding making a post for over 2 months...). I've never heard of the Sunshine Award, but beware, you're knowledge is going to expand.... :)

Balloons and Sleeping Masks


Never trust me and my friends when we go out together, we get up to mischief (in a happy way). Who can blame us though, school half-term is nearly over :(

New Bracelet


I've only worn this bracelet once so far with dark blue denim jeans and a pink jumper but I thought I'd show you the bracelet which my friend generously gave me as she didn't want it.

Guest Post from Amelia


Hey guys! I'm Amelia from pariswhenitspink.blogspot.co.uk. First of all I’d just like to thank Lauren for this awesome opportunity to guest post on each other’s blogs! Both her beauty and fashion blogs are brilliant and I've been following them since day one (almost…hehe).
Anyway, today I'm going to be doing an Outfit of the Day. I don’t do these often so I apologize if the photos aren't the best – I really need to practice my modelling skills! ;D

Welcome, October

Can you believe it, October already. Summer has flown by with hardly any summer days in England. But at least we can get out the boots, coats and scarves and wrap up as we go out ready to kick the falling red, orange and purple leaves

Thank you Sinead!

The amazing blogger over at fashionandbeautytribes hosted a competition to win where 2 people could win a pair of handmade bracelets, and I was one of them :)

Crafty Weekend

I don't know about you, but I love supporting friends, and hand-made crafts, mainly because they look so much better, and I love making crafts, like Iris folding cards.
This is one of the cards I brought for my friend, Lauren's 15th birthday last week. She loved it, and so did I so I had to take a picture of it so I could copy it!


 Do you have any crafty hobbies? What do you like making?

My new cupcake purse


I have this "tradition" to change my pencil case every September when I change year, and change my purse if I don't get one for Christmas. For some reason, I didn't do it this year, and after falling in love with a cupcake purse, I just had to have it!!

GCSE Celebration

 This is a really short post because we didn't take a lot of pictures. Like many teenagers I was really nervous about my results, but I am actually really pleased with myself!

Firetrap of colours

Just to let you know, I haven't posted any more Cornwall holiday posts as the last few days were raining and I didn't want to take boring pictures of rain on windows. I hope you are all okay, and enjoy the pictures!

Cornwall ~ Day 4

Day 4 of the holiday we decided to go on a little ferry to Padstow as we were lazy and couldn't be bothered to drive (!!!) I saw the Buttermilk Shop hiding in a little corner so, naturally, I got some more fudge!!!!!

Cornwall ~ Day 3

Day 3 of my Cornwall holiday with Mum and Emily! Today we went to Rock, but we didn't spend all day there as there wasn't much to do :(

Cornwall ~ Day 2

Have you ever watched Doc Martin, the grumpy Doc who is awesome, grumpy and hilarious? Well you haven't lived!!! (Seriously, you haven't!) Anyway, watch it then return to this post because I went, for the second time in my life, to Port Issac where Doc Martin is filmed!!! I couldn't take a picture of his house/ surgery unfortunately, but I had a fabulous time in the sun!!!

Cornwall ~ Day 1

Hey guys, I'm back! What I'm planning to do, is post everyday like I'm actually in Cornwall and posting what I did at the end of the day if that makes sense (it makes sense in my head anyway).



Friday, 10 August 2012

Holiday!

Hey guys! I just wanted to tell you that I'm going on holiday to Cornwall this week, and I will be back on the 19th where I will posting about my days and outfits (of cause) that will make you super jealous!!!!

I'm going to miss you guys, and not being able to see your comments but I will have them saved into my mail, and if there's Internet connection then I will publish as many as possible. (what if there's no Internet connection?!?!??!)

Hope you have a great time!

The Liebster Blog Award

I can't believe it, I've been awarded the famous Liebster Blog Award by the amazing Anna. The award is for amazing blogs with 200 or less followers

The rules are: 1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, plus create 11 questions to be answered by the people you have tagged.
3. Choose 11 bloggers and link them in your post.
4. Go on their page and tell them you have awarded them the award.
5. Remember, no tag backs!

So, 11 things about me...
  1. I don't know what to do when I leave school, but I'd like to either be a History teacher at Secondary school, or own a beauty salon
  2. I am addicted to chocolate
  3. I'm quite shy, but when I'm comfortable with the people I'm around I can be quite hyper
  4. I love writing stories, I'm probably rubbish, but I love it
  5. I hate Maths but apparently I'm "good at it"
  6. I've had a crush on a boy for over a year and still haven't built up the courage to ask him out
  7. I love crafts, making jewellery and iris folding cards (go to littlebigbirdiecrafts.blogspot.com to find out how to make them)
  8. I love my mum and sister, they mean the world to me and I love them to bits
  9. My friend's are awesome, and I'd love to go on holiday with them when we leave school
  10. My favourite colours are pink, blue and purple
  11. I have too many nail polishes!!!
The questions Anna has for me:
1.What is your favourite ice cream flavour?
Mint choc chip, I love it!
2. Have you ever dyed your hair?
No, and I don't want to. I'm happy with the colour of my hair but I will consider it when I get grey/white hair!
3. What's your favourite makeup brand?
Has to be Collection 2000 or Mac. I don't really have a favourite because I use so many make-up products. As long as it works and does its job it's perfect!
4. What's your favourite place to shop?
I like hand-made jewellery, and I'm willing to pay more for it. But as we have a wide variety of clothes stores, I have to shop at New Look, but it is getting a bit expensive (well, more than it was) so I save up and try to buy designer products, but not Chanel or that kind of designer, just small designer brands that I can get cheaper on the internet.
5. What's your favourite book?
The Hunger Games without a second book! I love it so much and I can relate myself to Katniss and I'd volunteer myself if my sister was chosen to take part in the games
6.What's your top band/singer?
Right now I'm addicted to One Direction (duh...) I love their song "What Makes You Beautiful"
7.What you you eat for your last meal?
Chilli con Carne :) yum yum
8.Flats or High Heels?
I'd love to say High Heels because I'd wear them all the time if I could, but because I'm only 15 it makes me look a bit weird so I have to wear flats
9.What's your favourite holiday destination?
Majorca, it's a gorgeous place and I would recommend going to the hotel Son Baulo (I think that's how you spell it)
10. Who is your favourite person to watch on Youtube?
I don't really have a favourite, but I love watching Sprinkle Of Glitter and her videos, she is really fab and great to listen and watch
11. What's your favourite telly programme?
I'm ashamed to say I don't have a favourite but I like watching Murder, She Wrote and Come Dine With Me, but they aren't my favourite TV programmes.

Questions for the blogs I tag:
  1. Who is the main person you look up to?
  2. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
  3. What's your favourite food?
  4. How did you come about blogging?
  5. What is the favourite thing about blogging?
  6. What would you do with a million pounds/dollars?
  7. What is your favourite pet?
  8. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
  9. How would you describe your fashion sense?
  10. Which one would you pick, make-up or nail polishes?
  11. Would you rather be happy but poor, or unhappy but rich?
Blogs I am going to award the Liebster Blog Award to:

beauty-my-way (Only 11 extra followers )

There were so many more than just 8 blogs that I am awarding who I wanted to give the award too, but they had over 200 followers which is really frustrating!

Hearts In Your Eyes

See what I did there with the title, like the song Stars in your eyes?

Anyway, after my mum and sister took millions of pictures of me in different outfits I thought I'd now upload them onto FashionSwirls so people in now rainy England can remember how nice it was last week. Enjoy the pictures!

Birthday soon!

I know it is a little early as my birthday is on the 8th September, but I wanted to post a little section of my birthday list which are all nail polishes because I love treating my nails to a little pampering!

So firstly, is the "Kensington Park Road" by Nails inc. I love their quality, all the nail polishes go on smoothly and there are hardly any streaks! Right now, with the sale on at beautybay.com, it is £8.80
My second choice is the "Little Miss Splendid" also from Nails inc. this is a limited edition, and the lovely sea green colour is fabulous! And the price is too at £9.60
Now for a lovely beige colour which would look gorgeous with a tan, has to be "Little Miss Sunshine" for £8.80 on beautybay.com
Next is "Shoreditch" which is a coral-pink. I love this colour, and it is one of my favourites, and a must-have! It comes in at £8.80
And last but not least, is "Henley Regatta" which is a pale-ish pink.

So? What do you think of my little section of my birthday list? (May I remind you that I said LITTLE!!!)

Hello everyone! I went to a party a few weeks ago to my bff's 15th birthday party. The theme was Gala, so I instantly thought heels! Here are the pictures my sister (also amateur photographer!) took before I met up with my friend to go to the party!
