Brightly Patterned

Wearing: Top - Topshop. Skirt - Miss Selfridge. Boots - New Look. Tights - New Look. 
So, Once again I apologise for the photos. Now I look at them I quite like working with a white background as this outfit is very bright so it stands out more however it just doesn't look as professional and have that certain 'photograaphy' view that I like to have on my outfit post. But, we'll work past it!
I loved this outfit because I had forgotten about this skirt from last winter and suddenly found it in my wardrobe. I thought the colour would look perfect with this bright collared top from Topshop. To make it more wintery I added these lovely knit tights and my handy studded ankle boots from New Look. I decided to have my hair in a bun because It's quite a 'blogger' trend so thought I would try it although I hated not having my hair down although I liked the outcome.
I would really like to write about what any of you want so please comment with new post ideas! Like a video, make-up post, wardrobe tour; anything you want!

Breaking Dawn Part 2 - Review

I haven't done a film review on my blog in a while so thought after an afternoon out at the cinema with my mother I would review the AMAZING Breaking Dawn Part 2 and last in the Twilight Saga.
I was quite apprehensive  yet beyond excited to go and  watch this as I had heard there was a 'twist' and after even being told by my friend who is a twi-hard (I just has to say it, despite the cringe!) it made it 100% better, I still wasn't too sure. Although I do think I didn't want to go as it means the end of twilight! However when 'twist' happened my jaw literally dropped, Its true that it did make it 100% better and gave it more depth into the storyline.
I thought it had a great range of funny,emotional and happy moments. It followed the book very well and in the ending credits when they referred back to the books which just made my heart warm. After seeing the first part of Breaking Dawn I reread the book, in three days. Which if you know is quite a beasty book!
Anyway I absolutely loved this film, it was the perfect ending to the whole 5 films. It acknowledged the fact that it was the end by having the end credits going through each character it was just amazing with Christina Perri's 'A Thousand Years' playing in the background, just thinking of it gets me emotional that its the end of the series!

Keeping Warm Inside

Wearing: Dress - H&M,  Cardi - New Look, Boots - New Look
The rain ruined my morning. I had planned to have a productive morning getting my mum to take photo's of a couple of outfits so I could be more prepared over the next couple of busy weeks but with a crazy amount of rain last night and it still going this morning I had to resort to taking my outfit posts inside, I don't know if I like the change or if it just looks a bit weird! As for my lack of posting, I'm sorry. I was ill last weekend, work was piling up and I saw Wicked on Thursday night (absoloutely amazing!) although I know, excuses excuses. I'll try to not let that happen again!

As for this outfit, I was rummaging through my sister's wardrobe and found this dress from H&M. I love the dots and the fit of it. I thought i might as make it a winter 'cosy' outift by pairing it with knit tights, knit boots and a knit cardi. Guess What? I love knit! I do think I look a bit like a 5 yearold but I thought, why not channel my inner five year old and feel all cosy and ready for christmas!

Since last Monday, after being told by the chief executive of Kurt Geiger (His daughter goes to my school and he did a careers talk!) that Pinterest is 'cool' I thought to myself, why not revamp my pinterest?
 I started one about 6 months ago, not really getting the hang of it and got very confused. Now I have the app on my phone it is my easier to use! I have got lots of different boards my my style, my inspiration, Nail art and quotes. At the moment I am obsessed, for me it has been the new tumblr. I came across this quote from Coco Chanel 'A Girl should be two things: Classy and Fabulous' I love it, it's such a cute quote. There are actually some really inspiring ones that I have 'repinned.' Go and check out my pinterest page and follow me.

Knitted Leaves

 Wearing: Leggings,boots and jumper - New Look. Under Top - Primark. Snood - H + M
I wore this outfit on my second day in Bath last Week. I love these knit Aztec legging's as they are so comfortable and wintery! I whacked out all the knit at although it was very sunny it was very cold. I loved all the leaves on the tree's by the lovely canal in Bath so whilst my mum was taking my pictures I decided to pick them up and throw them around, it was great fun!
I am now back at school after Half term and my Geography trip which was bitterly cold. So i am just getting back into the swing of things and just managing the early mornings!o

Seasons Changing

 Wearing: Skirt - Missguided. Boots - New Look. Top - New Look. Cardigan - New Look. Snood - H+M. 

I wore this outfit on my first day in Bath on Monday. It was such a lovely over night stay with the mother. We went to a Jane Austen Museum, a Fashion Museum, A small cute Cafe, a sightseeing bus tour and then to finish off the first day ate a lot in Pizza Express. Then on Tuesday we went round the Roman Baths which I found quite interesting as I study Latin and has already learnt about 'Aquae Sulis.' Then we pottered around the shops a bit before travelling home. I love this outfit because its such an Autumn turning into Winter outfit.  I love this different textures from the Wet-Look skirt, the knitted cardigan and tights to the studs on my T-shirt.
Anyway Its quite a down day as It's my last day of Half-Term so I am powering through all my work before I go out to a Bonfire and Fireworks night later. I'm also going to Dorset tomorrow on a fun Geography trip (Note the Sarcasm!) Hopefully the weather will be alright!
