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

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.

Dance Academy season 3: Finale

First of all I’m not a big fan of finalies, they always make me sad because it means that its the end. Its as if everything that has happened was all just leading up to the final moment.

Anyway back to dance academy, It was amazing and I cried!

I thought when I had finished the episode I would have been dissatisfied but I wasn’t .

I’m guessing you won’t have seen the show before so I’ll just let you know what this seasons been about.

Its about a group of Ballet students in their senior year at a prestigious ballet school, at the end of the year, 3 of them will be offered company contracts so their is a lot of competition. Also the 3rd series has included- eating disorders,coping with death, body image, rejection, sex and relationships.

 

The season 3 cast l-r: Ollie, Kat, Abigail, Christian, Tara, Ben and grace.

 

“I always knew in another life I could fly. So that’s why in this life I dance.”- Tara Webster
