This Or That: Summer Tag

Image taken from weheartit.com

I know we’re still in summer for well over a month BUT before we know it summer will be over, so I thought I would take part in this tag today before I NEVER get the chance to!

I found it over on lifethroughtsg which is run by Hayley. She didn’t tag me in taking part but I will anyway. I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend and Sunday. I’ve just had an amazing Lush bath. Enjoy the tag and make sure to take part yourself if you enjoy reading my answers.

1. Ocean or Pool
I like both to be honest for different reasons. When I went to Fuerteventura with Dane for the first time it was also the first time I went into the ocean properly and I actually really loved it! I’d probably choose ocean over pool though to be honest.

2. Beach Vacation or Wilderness
Definitely beach vacation! I’ve done wilderness before but I didn’t like it that much. I found that I couldn’t wait to get back home and I don’t want to feel like that when I’m supposed to be getting away.

3. Watermelon or Strawberries
Neither! Allergic to watermelon and I can’t stand strawberries.

4. Bikini or 1-piece
Bikini! At least you can get a tan on your tummy in one. 😛

5. Lemonade or Iced Tea
Iced tea!

6. Hotdogs… grilled or over a fire
Either way as long as they’re cooked. 😛

7. Hat or Sunglasses
Sunglasses.

8. Windows Down or AC all the way
Windows open, I want to hear all the sounds whilst driving.

9. Tanning Lotion or Sunscreen
What’s the difference? Anything that keeps me protected from the sun and gets me a tan all in one.

10. Baseball Game or Concert
Concert!

11. Ice Cream or Popsicle
Depends on the mood I’m in really. Usually opt for ice cream though in this country and ice lollies in Fuerteventura.

12. Fireworks or Fireflies
Fireworks usually but if I could see fireflies for a night I would love that.

13. Flip Flops or Bare Feet
Depends on the mood but definitely flip flops.

14. Water Balloons or Squirt Guns
Squirt guns are definitely more fun. 😛

So those are my answers for the summer this and that quiz! I really enjoyed giving it a go whilst I chilled out after my bath. I can’t believe that in just over a months time we’ll be into autumn weather. This year is going by so quickly!

Tell me, what’s your favourite and your least favourite thing about summer? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

I tag EVERYONE who reads this tag to give it a go! 😀 I’ll also be tagging a few of my favourite blogger beauties over on Twitter too so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you have a lovely evening.

March Wish List

Afternoon all, I hope you’re well! I’m here again with one of my favourite posts, my monthly wish list. I really enjoy sharing with my readers what I’m lusting after each month, even if I’m poor and need to save money! Since Valentine’s Day I’ve been on a spending ban as I need to save money to try and move out, as well as bills and such but the odd treat may not hurt, especially if they don’t cost a lot of money. I shall see…

There are quite a few items from Etsy in this wish list and I do apologise for this, but I have been loving Etsy lately!

  • Etsy Eeveelution Zip Bag.

I have been looking on Etsy lately for Eeveelution related items, as Pokemon don’t sell much of this over in the UK so it can be really hard to find and if you do, it can then turn out to be pretty expensive, which sucks! Etsy isn’t exactly cheap due to how expensive delivery can be from over the pond, BUT the stuff you can find can be beautiful. This zip bag being a great example. I mean LOOK how cute the Eeveelution’s are on it? I would definitely use this for when I have a long day at university and want to keep loads of little bits and pieces with me, such as sanitary towels (for time of the month!), make up, perfume, pens, etc. If this was big enough I’d even think about using it on a night out to give me a quirky look.

  • Yankee Candle Large Jar in Celebrate.

Easter is looming and with that all the shops bring out their limited edition products and chocolates, and this includes Yankee Candle. I’d heard about this candle coming out and it sounds delicious! It’s meant to smell like a lemon cake, which I personally love and have owned candles in the past with this same scent. This is selling out everywhere and I’m really not surprised to be honest. I haven’t yet been able to give this a smell, but when I do I can see me falling in love and wanting to buy. I don’t really need anymore Yankee Candle jars as I have loads at the moment, but I want to make sure I pick this up whilst it’s out to buy. I don’t actually think this is limited edition but I do feel like it won’t be around long. Yankee Candle would be silly to take this away mind as it sounds lush!

  • Esty Eevee iPhone 5 Customised Case.

I love my iPhone and when I got it over a year ago the one thing I was excited about the most was all the amazing cases I could put on it. Since then I have owned various lovely cases (mostly fox themed!) and like most people, I always crave more. I love Pokemon and have been after a Pokemon themed case for a while, but the official ones are hella expensive! My friend Gabriella (hey hun!) has been recommending Etsy to me for ages now so I ventured there for a mooch of some cheap and customised Pokemon related items and this is one I have found. You can get all sorts of customised cases on Etsy but the one that got my attention was the Eeveelution ones and the Eevee one stood out the most. It’s so cute and imagine using this whilst out and about? The  only thing I don’t like about it however, is the price. At over £20 including delivery it is shocking… But I’ll probably has this as a treat in the future.

  • eBay Galaxy Skirt.

I love Black Milk, however I don’t like their price tags and whilst I own one piece of Black Milk clothing, I got it for a bargain! These bargains aren’t easy to come by however and I’ve began to think about buying some similar knock offs. Oh naughty me! I’m not rich like some people so… Anyway… I love galaxy print and I always have, so when it came out everywhere I should have been happy, but I was actually annoyed. Now that phase has died down I’m getting back into it again. I would love some purple galaxy leggings or a skirt and this skirt is ideally the sort of thing I would like, especially with spring and summer looming. This won’t break the bank and will look gorgeous dressed up with black tights, a black or even navy t-shirt tucked in and some boots. I don’t mind paying less than a tenner to be honest, it’s better than over £50 for a Black Milk one.

  • Etsy Eeveelution’s Phone Charm.

Like I’ve already said about my iPhone, I love it. I’m pleased to finally have a phone that won’t just do good things, but can look good too! Recently places have created and brought out phone charms that you pop into your phones ear jack. They’ve been out since the iPhone 4s came out and have continued. I’ve bought one in the past and it really did give a personal and unique feel to my phone. When I found these cute Eeveelution’s ones on Etsy I know I wanted one. You can actually pick these up at a decent price from the official Pokemon Center but I really like the look of these customised ones as they give a lovely personal touch. I would get the Sylveon one myself as it just looks so cute.

  • Sugarhill Boutique  Curious Fox Jumper.

I’ve been eying this jumper up for months now but never bought it as it was too much money for £45.00 in my opinion. However now the sales are on it’s only £25.00, which is a bit more acceptable for me. This comes in grey and black, but I think the black looks better, and plus it’s the only one left out of the two. This would look gorgeous with all sorts, especially jeans and a skirt. I would wear this loads for uni as it looks so comfortable and snug. I don’t think this is even selling in my size anymore, but I shall keep my eye on it.

There is another item on my favourites, but this will be mentioned in a separate post on Saturday, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for this as it’s a very exciting thing I will be talking about! All I shall give away about it is that it’s footwear and Adventure Time… Keep tuned!

What’s on your wish list this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

I hope everyone’s week is going well, as well as March so far.

Until next time, take care all.

Do I Look 60’s Enough Yet? – What I Wore (13th September 2014)

Another what I wore post, already?! Wow I’m really on the ball this month, aren’t I? I think it’s because I love September so much and with some new knit wear to try out I’m likely to want to do posts about what I’m wearing.

I love autumn and with it finally coming up next week I’m getting out my jumpers and cardigans to wrap up warm in and after buying myself two new jumpers and a cardigan a few weeks back I’m ready for autumn already!

On Saturday my boyfriend and I decided to go for an afternoon walk and so I took him to a park in Birmingham that he had never been to before, due to him being from Coventry. We had a good walk around, enjoying the nature as well as the wildlife in the area whilst we both did a spot of photography too.

It was a last-minute decision to take some pictures for a look post on my blog and whilst the pictures aren’t the best in the world, I really like them and I especially love the outfit I wore as it was comfortable, warm and perfect for a late summer walk.

Glasses – Ernest Hemingway.

Lips – Maybelline Superstay 10hr Tint Gloss in Forever Coral.

Mustard Jumper – Zara.

Tartan Skirt – Primark.

Tights – Tesco.

Chelsea Boots – Topshop.

Wow how 60’s does my outfit look eh? Mustard jumper and a blue skirt! This reminds me of the sort of outfit my Mom would have worn when she was my age.

With my autumn clothing I love big baggy jumpers you can really snuggle into, as well as ones that make you feel toasty and warm without the need of a coat! I’m obsessed with the colour mustard this year and have literally been pining after a mustard jumper. So when I went shopping with my friend Poppy a few Saturday’s ago I just KNEW I needed to buy one. We didn’t have to look far for me to find one and I spotted this gorgeous mustard jumper in Zara. I only ever look in Zara when I’m out shopping with Poppy and I don’t know why because their autumn and winter pieces are amazing! Think I will be venturing in there more this year. As well as that I picked up another mustard jumper from Forever 21, but that one is a turtle neck. I’ll be sure to wear that soon for a look post!

I love my new jumper from Zara and is already one of my favourite jumpers that I can see me wearing a lot in both autumn and winter. This would look great with a pair of skinny fit jeans, and a white or black shirt underneath with the collar peeking out of the top. This jumper makes me feel really good about myself as it isn’t too tight or too baggy and really feels good on my body whilst I wear it.

My skirt was a complete bargain from Primark! It was only £5 and is perfect for all year around, especially autumn and winter due to the blue and grey shades of tartan. I’ve worn this with all sorts of clothing and whilst I love this skirt it is on the short side, so does tend to make me paranoid… But with a good pair of tights and someone to warn me of any bum shots, it’s wearable.

As I have been so much lately, I wore my Chelsea boots with this outfit. They work with pretty much everything and are super comfortable and warm, as well as looking amazing. They really compliment this outfit which makes me happy.

I can safely say that I thoroughly enjoyed mine and my boyfriends walk around the park. We spotted some squirrels running around the leaves and having a feed in the trees, some ducks having a rest, some geese pestering us to feed them and finally a caterpillar finding an attraction to one of my boots. Clearly he/she had taste!

Either way this will be the perfect outfit for autumn and with only a week left to prep for all the gorgeous autumn days, I think I’m near enough ready!

And of course in true what I wore post spirit I always post a picture of me and my boyfriend, or at least a picture of him.

He’s so precious!

Oh and speaking of autumn, you like my new header? I love it!

So, what do you think of my look? What colours are you liking this autumn? Let me know all your answers in the comments down below!

Until next time take care all and have a good week.

Sunday Fundy & Burgundy Stripes – What I Wore (7th September 2014)

I haven’t left it as long as I have on previous occasions to write a what I wore post and for that I am somewhat proud!

Yesterday I went to The Black Country Museum in Birmingham with my boyfriend  group of our friends and I have to say I had an amazing time and it was especially great to get the gang back together, including our friends little boy who is a new addition to our group. 😛

I had planned the day out for about a month so it was great knowing that it was coming together and that everyone was able to make it. It didn’t take much planning, just a group message asking if people wanted to go, what date, what time, etc but it did feel good that I was able to get everyone out! I’ve missed seeing them all and it was an amazing day, which I will probably write a post about towards the end of this week.

Anyhoo as everyone bar me and my boyfriend decided to leave we went off to have a walk around, a sit down to take some “selfies” and then some pictures for this what I wore post, as I really loved my outfit that day and wanted to show it off.

I should warn you now that there are LOTS of pictures in this post, my boyfriend got snap happy and we just couldn’t little the images down anymore than we already have…

Sunglasses – Ray Ban Wayfarers.

Lips – Maybelline Color Elixir in Blush Essence.

 Cardigan – Superdry.

Stripe T-Shirt – New Look.

Skater Skirt – Topshop.

Tights – Tesco.

Chelsea Boots – Topshop.

Bag – Nica.

I’m not exaggerating when I say that this outfit made me feel really happy and comfortable in my own skin. I haven’t felt too great about my body for pretty much most of this year and whenever I wear a lovely outfit it really does show! This outfit is one of the comfiest and prettiest I have worn so far this year and I know I’ll be wearing it again very soon!

I’ve worn my striped t-shirt and black skater skirt in the past, for New Years Eve and it was super comfortable then with a baggy grey jumper. This time around it was even better as I really do think my new cardigan set off the whole look and made me look comfortable and snug, as well as feel it.

This cardigan is new and featured on my September wish list only last week! I knew when I saw this weeks ago that I needed it in my life and I swear it is the softest, most beautiful cardigan I have ever had the pleasure to wear. It’s just perfect and I know I’m going to be wearing it loads throughout both autumn and winter.

I picked up my black skater skirt in the New Year sales back in January for just £10! Since then I have worn it to death and it’s better suited for colder weather as it’s really thick.

This striped t-shirt has been in my wardrobe forever and was one that my Mom gave me after buying it for herself and stating, “This would look better on you than it does on me.” and since then it’s been mine. I really do want some more striped t-shirts as they go lovely with everything, clearly. 😉

I’ve owned my Topshop Chelsea boots for nearly a year now and I remember reviews on Topshop’s website being really bad for these, people expressing how these broke and wore away really quickly. I haven’t had any issues and apart my Dr Martens boots, these are by far one of my favourite pairs of boots to wear.

Is there anyway of being in love with 2 pictures? Because honestly I love both of these! The one of me on the bench was one of the last pictures we took before having some time for “selfies” and walking to where I took the above picture. The roof of the building we were stood on allowed you to view most of the museum and it was a gorgeous sight, especially for the fact it was a beautiful afternoon! We ended up taking some comical pictures on here involving a shed, as you can see above but my boyfriend took a couple of nice ones and I actually love this picture of me overlooking the view. I was genuinely happy standing up there with my boyfriend, taking in the sights and on the way back down from the roof we spotted a dragonfly! I think that wrapped up our day out quite nicely.

Just so you’re wondering, this was one of the many results of mine and my boyfriends “selfie” pictures. I love it, we look so silly! 😛

So that was my what I wore post! I went a bit jumper crazy the weekend so I doubt I’ll be going as long without one next time, I’m all about the autumn weather that will soon be upon us! What did you think of this post? Let me know in the comments!

I really enjoyed writing this post, I love writing what I wore posts, especially when I really did love what outfit I wore on the day.

I hope September is going well for all my lovely readers so far!

Until next time, take care all!

October Wish List

Finally after months without one, I finally have a new wish list out!

I’m currently sat in Xscape in Milton Keynes, watching my boyfriend and his friend snowboarding. I’m sad that I’m not able to join them, but my time will come.

So whilst they go off snowboarding, I’m sat in the cafe watching them on the slope and writing up a wish list post. I’m using my boyfriends MacBook Pro, as he has Photoshop, which I lost on my old laptop when it died on me.

So, I have plenty of lovely things to show you, so let’s get on with the post! 😀

October Wish List

  • Heart Elbow Patch Jumper from ASOS – £22.00.

I noticed this jumper from ASOS months ago and have been pinning over it ever since. I have pleather skater skirt just like what the model is wearing in the picture, so in the autumn and winter months I’d be wearing that sort of outfit out during the day and in the evening. I think this jumper would also look lovely with a tartan skirt of some skinny fit jeans, teamed with boots of course, or creepers. I love the little heart-shaped elbow patches, they just make it look really girly and cute. You can also get this in black with brown elbow patches, but I didn’t like the black and brown combination.

  • Sweetheart Dress by Wal G from Topshop – £30.00.

This lace dress by Wal G comes in loads of different colours, but I opted for the bordeaux shade, as I thought it would look gorgeous throughout the autumn and winter season this year. I love lace dresses for this time of year too. For it being stocked in Topshop I was amazed at how cheap it is and if it wasn’t for being so poor at the moment, I’d have bought it by now. This would look lovely during the day and the evening as it would look great with a pair of boots, creepers or even some spiked flats, of course with my spiked pleather jacket to match. I’d mostly wear this dress with my navy military coat, or what I like to call my Sherlock coat. 😛

  • Burgundy Fox Print Jumper from New Look – (Was £24.99 when I wrote this post) £12.00.

When it comes to chilly weather, you can NEVER have enough jumpers and with bonfire night and even the Christmas German Market looming upon us before we know it, I’ll be needing as many snuggly jumpers as possible and as burgundy is one of my favourite colours and foxes one of my favourite animals… It’s as if this jumper was made for me! It looks super soft and snug and as soon as I get spare cash I’m going to go into New Look to try it on. I’d definitely team this with black skinny fit jeans and shorts, as it’ll look and feel lovely. Teamed with boots and a warm coat and I’ll be toasty warm all autumn and winter!

  • DC Rebound Hi Se from DC Shoes – £35.00.

I love DC SHoes as a company, so I of course love their footwear! I’ve owned a pair of DC Rebound Hi shoes since I was 18/19 years old and they’re still lasting me now, however they’re white and very much neon and even though I love them so dearly, I would like a darker coloured pair that I can wear throughout the colder months. I’ve been keeping my eye on these since May and every other month the price of these has gone down. Eventually I will buy these, I love the navy and white, but I especially love the red bandana style pattern on the shoe itself. It’s only minor on the shoe but it looks so nice. I saw someone wearing these on a train ride to my boyfriends a couple of weeks back and even though the woman who wore them had smaller feet than me (size 3 at a guess, I’m a 7!) they looked very comfortable and I regret not asking her if they were as comfortable as they looked!

  • Cut Out High-Waisted Black Skirt With Shoulder-Strap from Choies – £25.99.

I follow meowismful’s blog via Bloglovin’, but I’m also a subscriber to her YouTube channel and when she spoke about this skirt on one of her haul videos, I just fell in love with it! It’s really grunge and I think it would look beautiful teamed up with jumpers, quirky t-shirts and worn with creepers is a must too! I think I’d be inclined to wear this skirt all year round and as it’s a one size fits all, I’d certainly hope it would fit me, as I have quite a big bum and skirts sometimes ride up, it can depend on the material. This does remind me of something I’d have seen being worn by someone on Tumblr, which gives it a massive thumbs up in my books!

  • Pinnafore 2 For Dress from Warehouse  – £35.00.

I saw this dress over on alittleboatsailing’s blog two months ago and just fell in love with it so much! There’s something gothic about it that I like and I think it would be lovely worn in the winter time with my big red coat and my boots, it would give it a bit of edge I think. However I did go into Warehouse to buy this but they didn’t have any left in my size, so I was told, “If you go onto the website you can get Warehouse to send us your size for you to buy from here.” So as soon as I got home I did just that, that was back towards the end of July and my dress still hasn’t been shipped to the stored I needed it to go to, which to me is just wrong and bad customer service. This has put me off buying this dress a little bit, but that being said it’s so damn pretty that I just need it in my life!

  • Vans Sk8 Hi Marvel Spider-Man Trainers – £65.00.

When I heard about this I went to go and look at them on Schuh’s website straight away and let’s just say, I fell in love and contemplated getting myself overdrawn… Bu I was smarter than that and have waited patiently for them. I know these are on my Christmas/Birthday list for someone to buy me or for myself to save up for and sadly buy myself as some sort of self present. I heard that the design on these is perfect and that they look better in the flesh than they do on the pictures and they were right. The front of the shoe where its red is suede and has a beautiful web print on them, perfect for any Spider-Man fan, like myself. As you all know I love Spider-Man and to have these to wear out and about would be a dream come true. I love Vans trainers, they’re so comfortable and my 7-year-old Vans trainers haven’t let me down yet and are as comfortable as they were the day I bought them back in 2006. I’d wear these trainers with skinny jeans and maybe baggy jeans. These are what I would wear when I’m not feeling up to making an effort or if I’m walking around a lot. I wonder if I’ll get them for Christmas… *hint hint* 😉

  • Natural Bamboo Cute Fawn Handmade Phone Cover from and by Little Doe – £18.99.

I’m a fan of Little Doe’s jewellery, she likes foxes and deers like myself and when Scarlet posted a picture of this phone case on her Facebook page, I was hooked instantly and knew I just needed this cover for my iPhone! It’s made out of natural bamboo and has a gorgeous picture of a female fawn on it. You can have it customised too by picking from a selection of colours (pink, black, red, lavender, yellow & mint green) that you would like to have for the fawns rose, I’ve already decided that I would like mint green for mine. You also don’t have to own and iPhone 5 to become an owner of this gorgeous case, it’s also available for the iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, Samsung Galaxy S3 and Samsung Galaxy S4. I can’t wait to get my hands on one and when Scarlet announced she would be bringing out designs with foxes on, I felt ecstatic! I can’t wait! 😀

  • Barry M Matte Nail Paints from Barry M’s website, Superdrug & Boots – £3.99 each.

When I heard that Barry M were bringing out matte nail paints I was pretty excited about it and the fact that they’re all named after coffee related things just made me laugh… Because I work in a coffee shop of course! So anyway, you get five different shades to choose from and whilst I don’t want all of them, I probably want most! You have Espresso (matte black), Crush (red wine), Caramel (coffee brown), Vanilla (light grey) and Mocha (a dark brown). All the shades are beautiful but the ones that are catching my eyes the most are definitely Espresso, Crush and Vanilla. I could see me wearing Espresso to death over the winter period as I love wearing black nail polish and for Espresso to look matte and leather like when you wear it, it appeals to me a lot. By the time this post goes live, these polishes will be available to purchase in both Superdrug and Boots stores.

Well that was my wish list for this month! I’ve really missed making wish lists and as my boyfriend is lovely enough to let me use his MacBook Pro to write-up and edit posts together for images, I think my wish lists will see a quick return to my blog!

What have you seen that you hope to add to your wish list for October? Let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you have a good weekend.
