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.

We’re Going On Holiday!

This is something I didn’t think I would be talking about this year but yes, me and Dane will be going on holiday this year! YAY!

Sadly it isn’t Japan like we would love, we can’t afford that right now. To be honest we can’t even afford this holiday we’re going on and we’re both lucky enough that my parents offered to pay for us to go as an early Christmas present.

So you’re probably wondering where we’re going? Well it’s nothing “special” but we’re going to Fuerteventura! As old readers will know it’s my second home, so although it’s somewhere I have been to time and time again I still love it just as much as I did the first time around.

We’ll be going for 2 weeks, which will be lovely! It’ll be a relaxing holiday with loads of time at the beach, a bit of shopping, maybe have a go at surfing this time around and making sure to drink plenty of cocktails and have a great time!

I’m really excited to be honest. This week me and Dane have both been off work so it’s meant for the first time since we bought the house that we’ve been able to have the same time off together and spend loads of time together. I really miss these moments. I’ll be sad for us to both be returning to work after May Day bank holiday.

We have quite a wait until we go away but it’ll be worth it. I can’t wait to be honest! Just for the time being we’ll be saving up for our Euros. I want to try and take as much as I can so I don’t have to worry at all about running out of money.

Until then I’m going to lust after bikinis, dresses, shorts and sandals that I can buy for the holiday! 😛 What do you do as prep before you go on holiday? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

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

Wish List Wednesday – Pin Badges

I haven’t written a wish list Wednesday for quite a while now, or at least I don’t recall… Actually it’s only been over a month. Jeez am I getting that old I forget so quickly? 😛 So I thought why not do one now! I seem to have grown a new love of pin badges lately and I actually don’t know why. I used to love them growing up and would collect them as and when I could, but sadly that little hobby died although I do still own all the pin badges I collected back in the day.

So thanks to beauty bloggers Instagram pages I have now formed a new hobby, pin badge collecting. They’re mostly all geeky ones too and especially Pokemon themed. So why not make a wish list post about what pin badges I want to have in my new collection and shape my new hobby!

  • PinPalzUK – Sailor Mew Pin -£5.00 (link)
  • SpaceCadetCollective – “Blottertung” Lickitung Pin – £9.94 (link) and “Kantodex” V Pin -$23.00 (link)
  • ReallyBigDill – Togepi Surprise Pin – £8.90 (link)
  • TheSundayCo – Pokeball Deathstar Pin – £5.72 (link) and Hey Gurl Pin – £5.72 (link)
  • CosmeticMermaidPins – Free to Good Trainer Pokemon Pin – £11.45 (link)
  • AgainstMarj – Cubone Pin – £8.29 (link)
  • SourAttitudeClub – 8bit Eevee Pin – £8.70 (link), 8bit Surfing Glitterchu Pin – £8.70 (link) and 8bit Ditto Pin – £8.70 (link)

I know I usually write about each item, on wish list posts but I really don’t feel the need to on this one. All of the pins are Pokemon related bar one which is Adventure Time. My favourite pin badge out of the bunch is the Kantodex pin by SpaceCadetCollective. It opens up and is glittery, what isn’t to love? I’d stick it on my bag or on one of my jackets.

Do you like pin badges? If so which ones do you own or are lusting after? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

Until next time take care all and I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Spring & Summer Fashion Inspiration

Okay I know it has been a week since I last wrote and published a post on my blog, but I’m not lying or making excuses when I say I’ve been really busy the last week.

The weekend I went away to the Lake District and although it was tiring due to climbing a huge mountain and driving for over 3 hours there and 5 hours back home it was amazing and a much-needed break.

At the moment I am suffering with tired legs from the walk, as well as from a chest infection which is pretty crap but I have the next two days off of work so I’ll be writing up and scheduling some blog posts, yes!

I realised when I was packing my weekend suitcase for the Lake District that I don’t really have many lighter coloured clothes, nor do I have many dresses for summer, I don’t have many longer pairs of shorts, or any cool looking summer t-shirts and it made me feel rubbish and worried about what I intend to wear during the rest of spring and summer this year. As well as that I’ll be going away to Bristol in less than a months time, as well as hopefully going to Fuerteventura in September for a long holiday away with my boyfriend and maybe some friends.

So! I have finally decided to have a look online at some shops to get a vague idea of what sort of style I would like to start going for during the summer times and it seems to be swaying towards skater boarder/surf boarder styles and a lot of the brands I have had my eye on lean towards these too.

So for today mind I am making a post about my fashion inspiration for spring and summer this year.

Although I do shop the high street shops for clothes when it comes to spring and summer, since getting with my boyfriend I’ve been able to start getting back into the style mentioned above, which I’ve worn a lot over the past 10 years.

Some favourite brands in particular are Vans, Element, DC and Animal.

There are some certain pieces of clothing by all of these brands that hold a certain style that I like, whether it be a baggy piece of clothing or a tighter piece. I’m going to share them all with you today!

  • Baggy t-shirts

You can’t go wrong with a baggy t-shirt! It can keep you cool and prevent you from feeling clammy during warm days as well as hide your tummy if you aren’t so confident about it, like the way I am with my own. I have a lovely baggy t-shirt by Element that I bought in the January sales and still now it’s doing me a good job and I wore it for my mountain climb the weekend, it did a great job of keeping me cool! You can get these t-shirts from Primark too for less than £10 each if you don’t wish to pay a big price tag and in all sorts of colours. I have one in a dark blue and a cream colour.

  • Sweaters

I know the weather is getting warmer and with that sweaters should be put into the back of my wardrobe and left there until autumn and winter are upon us once more, but I just can’t! I love my sweaters, they’re that warm hug you crave when no one is around and are comfortable as hell! I wear them when the weather isn’t that warm, as well as in the evenings when the sun has gone done and I wish to sit outside. I live in my Animal sweater and I’m sure throughout spring and summer I’ll continue to do just that! As well as that one I also love my Spider Man sweaters from Forever 21, they do some awesome ones for a great price.

  • Denim shorts

I have plenty of pairs of denim shorts and too right I should! They can be worn on their own with bare legs, or with a pair of black or patterned tights when it’s a little chilly or you feel a little conscious of your thighs (like I do). I have one pair of longer (just about the knee) shorts that I live in during the spring and summer when it’s really warm as I just feel too conscious to wear short shorts due to my thighs, but sometimes I just has to be done and at the right place, and with the right people I feel a little less paranoid. I do however want another pair of longer denim shorts, so that I don’t worry I’m too paranoid during holidays and such. You can pick these up ANYWHERE! I’ve always loved Topshop’s denim shorts, especially the American flag style, which I have one pair of and miss wearing terribly!

  • A baggy hoodie

I don’t often wear jackets or coats during the spring and summer as it’s usually too warm to and as I get warm quite easily I often opt for a hoodie to keep me warm on my travels. One I’ve been grabbing lately is my boyfriends yellow DC hoodie, but I do plan to get my own Element or DC hoodie soon so I can stop stealing his. As well as that I also tend to put my Evanescence hoodie on, it cost enough so I need to ensure to wear it! xD

  • Skateboard shoes

These are pretty much what I live in during the hot days as my Dr Martens are just too warm and the same can be said about my Chelsea boots too. I even wear a pair of black Vans for work! I wear my Vans slip on shoes, or my newer DC skate shoes during the warm days. They’re greats shoes that can just be slipped on and off whenever.

Now here are some pictures of some inspiration!

So I hope you enjoyed this fashion post! I’ll be going for some slight clothing shopping before I go to Bristol and I’m sure that shopping trip will result in either a haul post or plenty of what I wore posts after Bristol! 😀

I hope everyone’s week has gone off to a good start, I know mine has!

Until next time, take care all.
