Favourites July: Music

Hello 🙂

I listen to quite a variety of music and for the 2nd week of Favourites July, I have decided to share a bunch of my favourite songs that I listen to. I’ve also included my favourite line from each song.

I have the fun stuff like:

One direction- I don’t have a specific song, I actually like quite a few including Something great, Magic and Strong.

Pots haring tots by George Clinton- “you would walk before I run and I’d run away with you”

 

The sad/ I’m feeling emotional  stuff like:

Beat to beat by The Jezabels- “all of the things that I don’t want all of the things that I don’t need are weighing me down, are weighing me down, but it goes on”.

Tracks of my tears by Smokey Robinson- “take a good look at my face, you’ll see my smile looks out of place”.

Easier to lie by Aqualung- “honestly to look you in the eye, it’s easier to lie”.

Take me home by Aqualung- “there’s a dead end straight ahead wont you take me home”.

Good times gonna come by Aqualung- “you came to me from nowhere with nothing and no one”.

Up on the roof by The Drifters- the only place I know where you just have to wish to make it so”.

Saving all my love for you by Whitney“each time I try I just break down and cry cus I’d rather be home feeling blue”.

 

The songs that cheer me up/make me smile:

The end by The Jezabels- “if you give me  a chance I wont lie I wanted to thank you for pulling me back from the brink”.

You’ll like it too by Funkadelic “would it be alright to share our dreams with you”.

 

Lastly is a song that goes in a category all by its self because I truly feel like I can relate to the lyrics:

She’s so hard by the Jezabels- “maybe your just to good for me, or maybe your just no use to me”.

 

Thanks for reading, let me know your favourite songs or artists in the comments.

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
