MARC JACOBS: DAISY DREAM

Hi guys, when I popped in to Boots to get a few beauty bits (see post HERE) I decided to also treat myself to a new perfume. I have been wearing Ghost religiously for the past couple of years and fancied a change.


I've seen this perfume all over YouTube and decided to give it a sniff and it's lovely. Very sweet and fruity and right up my street. Let's also take a moment to talk about the bottle, it's absolutely beautiful.


Although I haven't been tagged by anyone I thought it might be a good idea to answer the 9 tag questions in this post, enjoy!

1. What are you currently day dreaming about? Autumn/Winter. I love the colder months and love wrapping up and layering clothes. I also love the build up to Christmas. I'm so excited!

2. What three items live in your dream wardrobe?
- A Mulberry Handbag
- A black real leather jacket
- A classic pair of Louboutins

3. Who's your dream celeb look a like? I think Vanessa Hudgens is beautiful, I love her hair and her clothes. Can I have her wardrobe please?

4. In your eyes, who's currently living the dream? Personally I think that anyone who is working a job that they thoroughly enjoy is living the dream.

5. What do you dream of more; love or money? I'd be lying if I said solely love. I think love is important in life but I also love buying things, especially if I've worked hard to earn them.

6. Your dream holiday escape? I really really want to travel around the globe but if I was to pick one place it would be travelling around America for a couple of months.

7. Who's your dream Youtuber collab? I can't pick one, there are so so many talented YouTubers that I'd love to film with.

8. Did your childhood dreams ever come true? I can't really remember any of my childhood dreams. I used to want to be a Primary School Teacher and recently I got accepted into university to study it but I no longer wish to go. So I guess it half came true.

9. If one of your dreams could come true right now, what would it be? I'd love to be featured in a fashion magazine. A girl can dream...

I hope you enjoyed this post and I'll see you really soon with some more posts, bye.

WHAT I'VE BEEN UP TO RECENTLY

Hi guys, the past couple of months have been crazy and I wanted to just do an update/round up post to summarise what I've been up to so I hope you like it.

1. I finished college forever on the 25th June. I have incredibly mixed emotions about it because I don't miss it at all. You know people say 'school days are the best days of your life'? Don't believe them. The best days of your life are the ones you make the best. I have been so happy since finishing college and I intend to stay happy.

2. I've been working alongside my Mum in her business which has been a lot of fun. I was really unsure about how we would work together but things are going really well at the moment. It's a very creative job and I didn't realise how much I've missed art, I haven't done anything 'arty' for over two years since I finished my Art GCSE.

3. My parents and two little sisters went away for a fortnight camping at the end of July and me and my Mum decided that instead of shutting shop for the two weeks I would run the business on my own. Doing that and also running the house (my brother is nearly 20 but is only really at home to sleep) I felt a huge sense of independence and surprised myself with how much I managed to do.

4. I went to collect my A level results and didn't do too badly. At the moment I'm unsure what my next step will be but at least I know that I have my A levels to help with whatever the next step will be.

5. I'm 18 in two days! I will, by law, be classed as an adult. It won't really change much but I feel like it will be a fresh start for me. As I mentioned in my previous post, I spent a lot of sixth form dreading school and petrified of the future but all I feel now is excitement for the future. I'm ready to do things that I enjoy and start taking steps in building my career.

A LEVEL RESULTS


Hi guys, yesterday I went back to school to collect my A level results. I was a lot more nervous than I expected to be but I didn't do too badly. When I got home I checked UCAS and saw that the offer that I had accepted for university had gone through and I had secured my place, however I don't wish to go to university.

For the past two years I was very unsure about going to university and I wasn't willing to spend a lot of time and money on something that I didn't have my heart set on. Since finishing school over two months ago I have been working for my Mum's business and I've honestly loved every second. It involves making things, taking pictures of products and also involves technology and online shops. I'm glad that I was persuaded to accept the university offer because it meant that if I did change my mind I would still have a place.

For a lot of people, most of my friends included, university is going to be great for starting their dream careers but for some people, working and earning money straight away is the best thing to do. I no longer wish to become a primary school teacher and would have no idea what course I'd study at university if I were to go.

I spent a lot of time over the past two years upset and hoping to leave sixth form and do something different but if I had left I wouldn't have my A levels, I wouldn't have the most amazing best friends that I have now and I definitely wouldn't be the person I am today. I'm ready to experience different things and take any opportunities that are offered to me.

If you collected your A level results or will be collecting GCSE results soon then I hope you get the grades that you hoped for. But please remember that grades aren't the be all and end all. There are plenty of incredibly successful people with no grades. There are lots of options available if you didn't do as well as you hoped.

Thanks for reading and I'll see you soon! Bye.

P.S. I didn't want to put up a post without a picture so this is what I wore to collect my results.

SUMMER HAUL 2014

Hi guys, it's been a couple of weeks since I last posted and I'll tell you why in my next post but today I thought that I'd show you some bits and pieces that I picked up when I went to London a few weeks ago. If you want to see the London post with a few pictures that I took on the day then click HERE. FYI I had filmed this haul intending to put it up as my first YouTube video but I wasn't happy with the video so I thought I'd just write a blog post instead.


Firstly, me and my friend popped into Urban Outfitters on Oxford Street and also in Camden and I picked up a few things.



I picked up two boxy crop tops because since buying one from Topshop a few months ago I loved wearing it with high waisted jeans and I thought it would be a good idea to buy a couple more. These two bowls were at the till and I couldn't resist picking a couple up. I think that they'll look super cute on my dressing table and also in blog pictures.

The next shop that we went into was Zara on Oxford Street, the first Zara was awful and I found nothing but the next one had lots of things that I liked.


I saw this white jumper and as soon as I tried it on I fell in love with it. It fits so nicely and has 3/4 length sleeves. It is quite thin so will be perfect to throw on when the weather starts getting cooler again. I am IN LOVE with these shoes. I have a similar black and white gingham pair that I got from Topshop and when we went into Topshop on Oxford Street I was really disappointed because they didn't have any others that I liked. My friend pointed these out and they are real leather and were in the sale for £18.00 down from £70.00!

We popped into H&M and I decided that since getting my prom playsuit from H&M I would try and find some shorts or a skort because it fitted so nicely.


I adore these shorts. They're a really nice length, not too short and they'll look great with a plain T-shirt. I love the print and the colour. I saw this jumper in the sale which is similar to a quilted jumper that I got from Topshop a while ago so I decided to pick it up. It's super cozy and, again, will be perfect for the winter months.


I popped into Primark and picked up a simple grey T-shirt because I don't have any plain T-shirts but I have lots of things that I want to style with a T-shirt.

The jeans are Topshop Leigh Jeans and I brought a black pair a few months ago to wear for sixthform. They had definitely seen better days and also had a nice split in them so I was walking around the house in my pajamas because I lived in them jeans. My Mum and sister picked me up a new pair yesterday so now it's back to living in my black skinnies!

Thanks for reading and I hope you like some of the items that I picked up for Summer. The Great British weather seems to be deteriorating quickly so enjoy the sun while it lasts! I'm quite excited for Autumn Winter because I love layering and wrapping up warm.

Have a great day and they'll be a new post really soon! Bye.
