Hello dolls!
I hope you all had an amazing Christmas! Sorry I haven't been posting much, but I've been really busy over the festive period, visiting family and seeing friends, as well as working hard!
I just wanted to do a quick post before work tonight (yes, I'm working on New Years Eve!). I've been having a think about New Years Resolutions, and if I actually wanted to make any, as it's very rare that I stick to them.
So instead of the typical ones, such as start the gym or quit smoking, I thought about ones I could actually achieve, and this is what I've came up with!

Mini Elf Haul.

Hello dolls!
I've recently been reading lots of blog posts about Elf cosmetics, and decided to order a few bits. These were the first products I've actually tried from Elf, so I had high hopes from the things I bought.

Mini Boots Haul.

Hey dolls,
I recently went shopping and thought I would share with you all what I picked up.
I'm currently waiting on an order from Elf, so I wasn't sure whether to wait for that to arrive and include all products, or do two separate posts, but I'll do a post now on what I bought from Boots, and a post when my Elf products arrive.

Where I Get Ready | My Dressing Table.

Hello dolls,
I've recently had a huge clean out of my room, moving things around and sorting things out, so I thought I'd take some photos of my dressing table to show you guys. My mam's friend recently moved to Manchester so my mam got to have her gorgeous dressing table, which I ended up talking her into putting it in my room. I absolutely love it, it's so vintage and fits perfectly with the style of my room.

Would you rather? | Beauty Edition.

Hi guys,
I've been having a bit of a writers block recently and wasn't sure on what to post about. I haven't been shopping recently so I haven't had anything to include for a haul, and I haven't really had any inspiration for anything else.
I was flicking through my reading list and came across Saskia's (at Sassy's Place) post and thought I'd give it a go!
Hopefully this will kick start my motivation for other posts!

Follow me around - college trip #1.

Hey dolls,
So on Monday I went on a trip with my college course, and thought it was a good opportunity to take photos throughout my day and show you guys what I got up to.
We went to two places - Sunderland Winter Gardens and the National Glass Centre, also in Sunderland. I took quite a few photos, although I didn't take any in the Glass Centre, as my phone was on low battery :(
But here's my day...

How well do you guys know me? | Update.

Hey Guys,
I have been having major writers block lately for my blog, I just don't know what to write! The other day I was taking photographs to do a day in the life post, but it was a bit of a boring day so I'm gonna do it a different day. I was doing the post as it's a bit more personal than other things I've wrote about, and I just wanted to give you guys a more in depth look into my personal life.
I'm obviously not going to share everything online, but when I'm reading someones blog, personally I like it when they let me know more about themselves, so I feel as though I know the blogger a bit more.
So that's what I want to do on this post. I want to give you all an insight into the more personal aspects of my life, and also just a little update on what's going on.

favourite august products.

hey dolls,
and happy September!

So it's a new month, and I thought I'd do my August favourites.
I haven't done any favourites posts before, and I haven't thought to do it until today. I was planning on doing a new post anyway, and realising it was 1st September, I thought, why not do my favourites?
This is a mixture of haircare, skincare, makeup and clothing bits I've been loving the past month.

Meal & Drinks | OOTE.

Hi guys,
I'm getting straight back into my blogging with this post from one night last week.
I went out for a meal and drinks and this is the outfit I wore.
It wasn't until I done this post that I realised, pretty much my whole outfit is Topshop!
I recently picked up these leggings and top from the Topshop store in the Metrocentre in Newcastle. I haven't seen either of them stocked in my local Topshop, so it was even better when I bought them!
I also wore a couple of make up bits from Topshop, including my blusher/bronzer duo, and my lipstick. I love this shade of lipstick, as I think it matches perfectly with the top.

General Chat & Life Update.

Hey dolls!

I am back after a long needed break, and ready to start blogging frequently again.
I've been away for a while, as the past couple of months have been quite busy for me.

my bath/night time products.

Hey guys,
I've been wanting to do this post for a while, so when I was going in the bath tonight I thought i'd include the things I use, both when going in the bath and every night before bed.

beauty blogger tag!

aloha dolls!
so I thought i'd try a different blog post today, and do a beauty blogger tag.
I know i'm basing my blog mostly on fashion, but i'm going to start including beauty in it.
I got this from the gorgeous Sweetaholic Beauty at, definitely worth a look!
and on with the questions...

i'll be taking more photos like this so whenever I do a lot, i'll post them.
hope you like them!

hometown glory.

top - topshop
leggings - topshop
cardigan - mango
bag - primark
bracelets - river island
earrings - dororthy perkins
(not sure where my belt is from, I got it for christmas)

hi guys!
so here I am, finally posting now i'm back in England!
sorry for the lack of posts since Malta, I didn't know what I wanted to do a post on next, so I stuck to doing another outfit posts.
it's been a bit mad since i've been back in England. mostly i've been having to catch up with college work - it's amazing how much a week off can put you back!
because i'm doing 4 projects at once, it's been so easy to fall behind, but i've been working hard and i'm now caught up with work.
for one of my projects, i'm basing it on fashion. i'm going to be going out with friends, dressing them up, choosing a location and taking lots of photos, so everytime we do a "shoot" i'll post the photos on here. we did a quick experimental one on a trip we went to with college last week. we went to Saltburn, which is a beach/town in the North East of England, and we got some pictures of our outfits on the pier. i'll post them up next!

hi, i'm a tourist.

aloha guys,
today has been a bit of a similar day to the rest, we got the ferry over to Valletta again and spent the day shopping and being typical tourists. I decided to photograph a lot more of the buildings and views than I already have done, to give you a better view of this amazing town.
I didn't bother doing an outfit of the day as it wasn't anything special.
we had some dinner, did some shopping in the sales and wandered up to the gardens before coming back to the apartment.
then tonight we just went for a bite to eat and a few drinks, but the 3 of us are so tired so we're having an early night tonight, then up early tomorrow and back over to Valletta to spend our last day there. I think we're just going to the war museum, do a bit more shopping (spend, spend, spend!) then go for our last meal tomorrow night as we come home on saturday.
for tomorrow's blog post i'm going to include an OOTD and some pictures of the war museum, but I probably won't put a post up for saturday as we fly home on the afternoon and won't be arriving back to our house in England until midnight.
it'll be back to the same routine next week, but i'll still be posting at least once a week now i'm in the habit. i'll be doing a what's in my make up bag, regular outfit posts, a final post for Malta and possibly a haul of everything bought whilst on holiday!

(p.s. sorry for the ramble!)

I saw the great minds of my generation destroyed by madness.

not feeling photogenic today | OOTD | over in st. julians | OOTE | the pub we went to | i found this writing on a bank close to our apartment and loved it.

top outfit-
top - topshop
jeans - topshop
studded jacket - topshop

bottom outfit-
top - topshop
high waisted leggings - zara
earrings - dorothy perkins
worn with converse (ignore my red spotty socks!)

hey guys!
so today we walked to a town close to where we're staying called st. julians.
I photographed what I could, as we weren't there long. we had a look round, and walked along the harbor. the weather report said windy and showers, so we didn't want to risk being out for too long.
we came back to apartment, ate in then went to a little pub at the bottom of our street called the Plough & Anchor, or George's Bar as it's known to the locals. I included a photo of the pub just to show the size of it - it's tiny! there's even a sign outside saying the pub seats no more than 27 people, it's crazily small!
me and my stepdad then went to Muddy Waters, a rock bar over at st. julians. again, it was only small. we had a few drinks then came back to the apartment as we were so tired.
on the way back, we found this piece of graffiti/street art, which I found really interesting. as an art student, i'm always on the look out for any street art like this.
not too sure what the plan for tomorrow is, but i'll photograph what I can and hopefully it'll be blog worthy!
