New year resolutions

I normally don't do new year resolutions but this year I feel like there are so many things that I need to change. Here is what I have decided on:

1. Start exercising- Recently I have been so unhappy with my body but I haven't actually done anything to improve it. I think I will start off with the squat and abs challenge and work it up from there (which I have tried numerous times before) I'm so lazy though! wish me luck!

2. Learn different things to cook- I am so bad for cooking the same meal all of the time, the worst thing about it is that all of the things I make consist of pasta which does not help with losing weight. I have numerous cook books that I actually need to open and read.

3. Find a job- right now I am so poor! As soon as I go back to uni I need to hand out C Vs once again in the hope of getting a new job..finally.

4. Keep on improving my blog- In 2014 I hope to continue my blog and also post a lot more!

Also I thought I'd mention the bargain dress that I ordered for New Years eve. Its from Missguided and can be bought here. Ill probably return it because I'm not confident enough with my body to wear it but it was only £19.99!

I hope you all have a good New Year!

Christmas day outift!

I hope you all had a good Christmas! I wanted to do a post about my outfit because I am in LOVE with my new cardigan that I wore. Sorry about the lack of shoes though, there was no room in the house to take photos because of all the family that was round. I went straight back inside and put on my new Christmas socks though!

Firstly the cardigan that I wore is my new favourite thing to wear. I recently got it from H&M for £35 which is a bit pricey for me but its just so beautiful that I couldn't pass it up! I have an obsession with fluffy clothing recently. Its so cosy as well!

Underneath I just wore a plain black crop tee from Primark tucked into my black River Island skirt that has been mentioned numerous times on my blog. 

The necklace consists of multiple chains and is from Primark. I honestly wear it all of the time.

For I would have worn black ankle boots if I was going out but since it was Christmas I just sat on my bum all day stuffing my face with food ha ha!

Hope you enjoyed!

What I Wore: night out #3

So I was out once again last weekend.. all my money is vanishing. I really struggled to find something to wear as the dress I got from the Clothes Show is way too long, I'm gutted. I just looked into my wardrobe and chose clothes that I have had for ages which I really need to start doing more! Here is the outfit:

I cant even remember when I bought this pink lace crop top! I think I mainly picked it up because it was so cheap as is from Primark. However I have never really found an outfit for it until now. The skirt has been featured in a blog post before and is from River Island. I love how it looks like leather because it is so shiny!

The necklace I got recently from New Look and it was around £8 I think. I love it because it definitely makes a plain outfit so much better! The bracelet is also from New Look however I got it in summer. Its really pretty and consists of lots of different chains.

My trusty shoes which I wear all the time were featured in my last 'What I wore' post and are from Boohoo. I love them!

Thanks for reading!

Clothes Show Live haul

I went to the Clothes Show on Tuesday with my uni class and it was so amazing! Fair to say I ran out of money pretty quickly.. but there was so much clothes and make up! The only downside was that there was so many offers on nail varnish but I had to get a plane back and had to stick to the liquid allowance, boo. Anyway here's the few things that I bought:

This dress (left) is so beautiful! It was such an impulse purchase, as soon as I saw it I wanted it. I just love the contrast of the red and white, also it has 3/4 length sleeves which I love because I need to cover up my awful arms ha ha! It only cost me £10 aswell. The top on the left was only £10 too and I love it because its so fluffy, however I cant decide if it is too fluffy to wear outside of my house..

This necklace was a bargain at £3. I thought I'd pick it up as its easy to wear and also you can never have too many necklaces!

The Barry M stand didn't actually have massive deals, just the usual 2 for £5. I love these two colours! The left one is called Berry Cosmo and the right is Navy. Definitely colours that I will wear all the time.

 Finally I got the diego dalla palma Snow White and the Huntsman palette. I think I will review this soon! The main reason I got this is because the colours are so natural that I use this for pretty much any occasion and it was only £6.

Hope you enjoyed! Did you go to the clothes show?

What I Wore: night out #2

So..I went out last weekend once again. It is actually getting bad how much I go out, so expensive! Sorry I didn't actually get a photo of me actually wearing the dress but I do have an photo of everything I wore, here it goes:

The tartan dress is one I got recently and I am in love! It is from Daisy Street and all though I cant actually find this dress anymore on the website there are many more like it in different colours.

The shoes I wore are from Boohoo and I got them ages ago hence how beat up they are. I was so surprised that they still have them on the website, linked here. Only £25 aswell! so worth it

The necklace is just a silver chain that I got from Primark for around £2. I also had my pandora and shambella bracelets on too.

Hope you enjoyed!

What I Wore: night out #1

I have decided to start a new series of outfits that I wear on nights out as being a student I go out a lot (too much) and constantly have to dress up! I'm one of these people who has to have a new outfit idea every time I go out, it can get annoying and expensive. Recently I've decided I need to start wearing my outfits more than once so the outfit featured in this post was worn last weekend and to a party next month, I'm trying to be good..

I got this dress from New Look last Thursday for only £19.99! Its a lovely navy colour with gold threading throughout it. I especially love the sleeves!

The necklace was also from New Look and was around £8 if I remember correctly. I love this because it can definitely be worn with lots of other outfits!

I also got a lipstick that day from MAC in up the amp. Ah its my new favourite! I don't even have to feel guilty about spending the money because it was an early Christmas present from my boyfriend, bonus!

The shoes I wore are ancient and are from New Look, not the comfiest I must admit.

Here is me at the end of the night looking a little bit worse for wear ha ha! Anyway I hope you enjoyed this post, I will definitely be blogging more often from now on!

Comfy cinema outfit

Hey! I went to the cinema to watch Catching Fire last night, it was so good! Do not want to have to wait so long for the next one. I wore a comfy outfit to the cinema, I also went for food before so I didn't want to wear fitted clothes ha ha. Its not a very ambitious outfit but I thought I would make a post anyway!

My jumper is a from H&M and it was only £10! It took me ages to decide if I loved or hated it but I definitely love it as its so unique. I got it in the sale so it is not likely its there anymore :( As usual I wore my Joni black skinny jeans from Topshop, I always seem to be wearing these in blog posts.

My necklace is also one of my favourites. I got this from New Look in the summer. I love it as it makes a plain outfit a lot more interesting!

My shoes are also in the previous blogpost and are from Topshop. I think they still have them but in black and they are only £45.

Hope you enjoyed! Do you like wearing comfy clothes to the cinema too?

Zara shirt OOTD

 hey! heres a quick post on an outfit I wore the other day.

My shirt is from Zara and I am in love with it! I especially love the dark blue tartan, its subtle but still noticeable. I also love how the shirt has long sleeves. I did however get this shirt a size too small so its a bit short but I totally think it looks like its meant to be that style anyway. This shirt was around £25 however I cant find it on the website anymore but there are lots that are a similar style!

My jeans are my trusted Joni black skinnys from Topshop and my boots are the Majestic cut out boots
also from Topshop. I got them for £45 a few months ago. I love the colour of them! However Topshop now only have the black version available on their website.

The necklace I wore is my chain from Primark which I got for £2! And finally I just topped off the look with my ancient black biker style jacket.

'I can't be bothered bothering today' uni outfit!

Hey! I'll just say now that I'm so sorry for the bad quality photo! I had no one with me to take a full length one, boo. This was a day where I just couldn't be bothered looking good but I think my outfit worked anyway..right?  Here is the outfit!
 My baseball style top is from H&M and I bought it a few months ago so it might still be in stores. I remember it being quite cheap and its so comfy! It is definitely made to be over sized considering mine is a size 6 and I'm usually an 8-10, ego boost! On the bottom I'm wearing my Topshop Joni black skinny jeans, I wear these far too often..
 The necklace I am wearing is from Primark and was only £2! It came with a large dangly heart on it but I took it off as I think it looks better without it.
On my feet were my burgundy converse, so comfy!

Hope you enjoyed!

Interview OOTD

On Thursday I had an interview which was at a fashion retailer. I knew I had to dress fashionable but still smart. I had a big dilemma in what to wear as I felt so under pressure! It is a job I'd love to be in and fits around my fashion management course perfectly however there were many other lovely people going in for the jobs too so I do not know what my chances are of actually getting one. Anyway this is what I wore!

 I decided to go with one of this seasons major trends: tartan. I've had this New Look shirt for years and kind of forgot about it in the back of my wardrobe but its finally made its comeback into my wardrobe. I tucked the shirt into my quilted skirt from River Island. It looks like leather in person as it is a shiny material. It was only £12 in the sales! I also had my super cosy tights on from Primark, they honestly are the best things ever! They last ages and are only £3.50. For jewellery I added a small silver chain necklace under the collar just to add some detail, it was £2 from Primark! I also wore my Pandora bracelet and a shambella on my wrist, these are just my daily bracelets.

On my feet I wore my little black boots from Primark. They are so cute but I only got them last week and they already look quite worn.. I should have expected that from £8 shoes though! never the less I will get a lot more wear out of them.

Hope you enjoyed my post, fingers crossed that I get a job!
