Her trash is my treasure!

One of the things I love about having 2 older sisters is I don’t have to spend so much money on new clothes because I get there old ones. A lot of the things I get from them tend to be things I wouldn’t buy for myself (but still like) because we all have quite different senses of style.

Anyway a couple of days ago my mom tells me my sister has a bag full of clothes she doesn’t want anymore, I looked through and picked out some things to keep.

wpid-IMG_20140301_124238-1.jpgFirst up this dress which I really like and I think it fitted me nicely. I really like the detailing with the black strips as I think it gives the impression of structure.

wpid-IMG_20140301_124415-1.jpgNext this cotton top which definitely isn’t something I would have ever bought myself but I decided to keep it as I think it will be interesting to see how I end up styling it.

wpid-IMG_20140301_124813-1.jpgLastly, a black wrap skirt. When I saw it my first thought was no way is my sister throwing this out so I actually took it back to her to make sure. Turns out she really didn’t want it which meant it was mine (YAY!). I think it’s such a nice piece and I can’t wait to wear it.

Presents, shopping and going vegetarian!

Christmas day was OK, I guess I’m just not that into it really.

I was super happy with the presents I got though, especially the Sewing machine- “Thanks, Dad!”.

My Christmas Presents


Sewing Machine






+ a few other little things


On Boxing day me and my sister went sales shopping,  the city centre was crazy busy, so much in fact that people had to queue outside Next and Hollister.

I got things from h&m and New Look which I will show you in another post.


Which brings me to today.

Its been a pretty chilled day the most productive thing I’ve done is maths revision (past papers), which I quite like sort-of.

Anyway I cant believe that in 5 days it will be 2014.

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before but I’ve decided that for the whole of January I’m not going to eat any meat. I’ve thought about becoming vegetarian before but I just experiment first.

I think it will be a great way to start the new year and hopefully I’ll become a little healthier as currently I eat too much protein and not enough fibre/fruit + vegetables.

I’ll probably do a weekly journal sort of thing to share with you how my vegetarian January is going.

That’s it for now, but there is so much more to come…

I’m off to do some shopping


I hope your weekend is going well, I’m off to do some shopping with my sister.

Over the past few days I haven’t had a lot of time to post much more than Daily Snippets as I’ve been pretty busy with my college work.

I have some snaps of what I’ve been up to lately which I haven’t gotten round to  posting yet (sorry).

I’ll try and do that soon so stay tuned,

Have a great Saturday!
