Snippets of the month: November

November has been a pretty good month for me. I feel like lots of things I’ve been worrying about are all going well for me. This post is going to be pretty long so I’ll just get on with it…

So first up at the start of the month I started volunteering again at the charity shop I volunteered at over the summer. One of the days I saw the most beautiful vintage shirt ever and it was ‘Christian Dior’ I really want it, in a major way.

I got nominated for The Versatile Blogger award I was both surprised and grateful!

I finally started wearing a coat and as I live in England and it was getting to the point where I couldn’t go out without a coat and not feel cold. Over the next week I’ll try and do a post on my winter coats which hopefully you’ll like 🙂

OUTFITS

So here are just a few outfits I wore this month, I originally intended to post my outfits regularly but I often don’t get round to snapping pics of what I’m wearing, sorry!

wpid-IMG_20131126_214557-1.jpgWhen it’s cold outside or I’m not feeling too great I get the urge to dress all in black. In this outfit I layered a really cool semi-sheer patterned tank top over what I was wearing and tucked it  into my trousers.

wpid-IMG_20131125_094947.jpgSo the jacket and sweater are both from h&m. Its a really simple outfit which I wore with skinny jeans and it always gets me compliments.

wpid-lmg-pic-0330.jpgI wore this to college and afterwards I did some volunteering which is where I am at in the photo. The boots are like ‘builder style’ they so comfortable and I wear them all the time in the colder months.
wpid-IMG_20131129_075204.jpgI really love this outfit some people might be like ‘errr what were you thinking’ with the clashing prints of the top and sweater and then the studded vest over it, but its everything I love about it. The denim vest and striped sweater are from h&m and the top is from next.

TV 

Peaky Blinders– I really love this show. Its a historical drama series on a Birmingham gang called the Peaky Blinders. Cillian Murphy plays the main character Thomas Shelby and he always looks super handsome. You might be reading this thinking ‘BORING!’ but if you click on the word ‘Peaky Blinders’ you’ll get a link to the trailer and I guarantee you’ll be blown away!

Styled to Rock US- So last year their was actually a British version of this and I loved it oh so much. I’ve been long awaiting the US version and now that Its finally here I’m hooked! The show was created by Rhianna, basically each week the contestants have to design an outfit for  celeb… —> click here for the trailer

Daily Snippets: Searching for inspiration

That is how I spent my weekend.

Luckily for me I found it, I ended up doing lots of textiles work, tonnes of writing (including chorus lyrics) and a lil’ bit of blogging.

It felt amazing as I haven’t felt so free and limitless in terms of creativity in a while.

Crazy Sexy Cool: The TLC story

So I watched this movie almost a week and thought it was so amazing I had to do a blog post on it.

 

Here is a picture of the main cast: Lil Mama as Lisa ”Left-Eye Lopez, Keke Palmer as Rozonda ”Chilli” Thomas and Drew Sidora as Tionne ”T-boz” Watkins. 

Part of the reason I watched this is because I’m a TLC fan and the film featured some of my favourite songs by them:

Creep

Waterfalls

No Scrubs

Unpretty

TLC in the film

The real members

I totally recommend you watch it if you haven’t already seen it. There is so much more to it then just music it shows you what was going on in their lives at the time. Click here for a link to the trailer

If you still don’t want to watch it after seeing the trailer, at least listen one of the songs and let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

Cocoon Coats

So I already have many winter coats but lately I have been lusting after a cocoon coat. They are just so chic and effortlessly sophisticated (I’m in love with them!).

Unfortunately, being an unemployed student aged 17 means that my budget only stretches as far as essentials 😦

But I’ll keep dreaming…

 

Hope you find this interesting, feel free to leave a comment letting me know your favourite style of coat for this winter.
