What goes up must come down

Sometimes I feel like that’s how I am emotionally like all good things will be followed by something bad (which is probably why I’m often kinda tense and on edge).

Today has been a weird day for me I’ve been happy, sad, happy, sad… (you get the idea).

I wasn’t feeling either of these emotions to any kind of extreme but lots of little things keep getting me down.

Despite all the little bad things I’m choosing to dismiss them and keep happy and positive about life.

Anyway I’ll just share with you 3 songs I  listened that made me feel better.

Jake Epstien- Rescue you

Joanna Pacitti- Out from under

TLC- Somethin’ you wanna know

Moving on tomorrow is the last day of college before the Christmas holidays and I’m full of anticipation (I get really excited about these kind of things). I’ve kind of planned 2 outfits but I’m not sure whether which outfit is the best option. I feel like its a big thing my last college outfit of 2013, like that’s major!

Outfit 1- Black/grey skinny jeans, dark green baggy cable knit jumper and a studded denim vest.

Outfit 2- Pink mini skirt with a sweater… (that’s all I got so far)

Anyway that’s it for now, I’m full of anticipation with much to prep for tomorrow…

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

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!

Snippets of the month: October

I cant believe October is over already, time flies!

Hope your October has been great, here is what I’ve been up to:

lmg-pic-0221Taking a walk in my everyday autumn/winter boots

lmg-pic-0227When I get the time I like to make my nails look interesting.

lmg-pic-0278My new necklace from Dorothy Perkins it was £10 but they had it on sale  so it only cost me £3! (BARGAIN)

 lmg-pic-0279I decided to buy an MUA nail varnish it cost £1 and the colour is called Plum Noir, its a really lovely dark berry colour. I wouldn’t  claim it as amazing quality but for what it cost I was pleased.

 

lmg-pic-0280This top hasn’t come out so great in the picture but I got it from a charity shop, not sure if I’ll actually wear it but at the time I thought it was an interesting piece.

lmg-pic-0281So I got this from h&m for £7 on sale, its original  price was £24.99 so I’m really pleased.

lmg-pic-0283Stud detailing on the shoulders which I love.

lmg-pic-0289My niece created this from my grapefruit peelings, she’s so creative!

lmg-pic-0293_e1 I wore this outfit this week for my friends birthday the skirt is from h&m and the crop top is from new look. This week alone 3 of my friends are having birthday celebrations as they turn 18 so it’s quite a busy week for me

RELATIONSHIPs

Errr Nothings happening in this department (sadly). For pretty much the whole of last year though I was into this one guy I called charming (because he was). Anyway its a long story that I’ll just cut short, basically he was totally perfect but he wasn’t really interested in me (as more than a friend) and I was super nice and friendly with him (I couldn’t help it) because I was totally and utterly attracted to him. I think I kinda miss talking to him

Ok moving on as I am supposed to be forgetting him (easier said than done as it is impossible to avoid him at college). There are other guys around that are good looking but no one that I’m majorly interested in.

SOCIAL

I went to my first ever fashion show which was free at the Bullring, Birmingham. It was presented by Molly King, and The Saturdays performed a few songs at the end (minus Frankie’s as she’s pregnant). It was an amazing event and I hope to attend more fashion shows in the future (maybe even fashion week, one day…).

I’ve gotten to know my friends friends better. That’s been great because they are really friendly (as am I) and fun and easy to talk to. When It comes to being around a group of guys I don’t fancy I can totally be myself and not have to worry.

TV

Preachers Daughters

Awkward

The Carrie Diaries

Dance Academy

So that’s it, I hope you enjoyed it. It was rather long so I hope it wasn’t too much.

Let me know what you thought: like, comment and share.

I love me some Rizzle Kicks!

You may or you may not have heard of Rizzle Kicks, they are a British hip hop Duo made up of 2 guys: Harley and Jordan.

I’ve liked their music ever since their single Down with the trumpets.

A few weeks ago I heard Lost Generation and I was like “YAY!!!-another great song”

The reason I like Rizzle Kicks is because they are fun, they have great lyrics and I love the fact that they don’t conform to the standard hip hop stereotype. I’m quite tired of listening to the same old same old r&b and pop music that is just all about sex and drugs.

Here’s a few songs by Rizzle Kicks that I like, have a listen and let me know what you think in the comments below 🙂

Lost Generation

Earl  Grey

That’s Classic

 

While I was writing this post I found an article on Music Week

Rizzle Kicks: ‘Most hip-hop is still pretty misogynistic’
