Hello, so this is a super long chatty post about ages ago when I went to Camden. If you read it all, thank you, if you don't, enjoy the pictures! I'm not sure how it ended up so long but oh well. Off we go!

Man, I love Camden it's all so busy and kind of stressful because you want to see what all the stalls have to offer, and people are shouting at you all the time to come look at their clothes and offering discounts, but it's so much fun.

The top I brought was £25. When the man told me the price I was thinking woah, and I was going to ask if it could possibly be made any lower, but then the guy started telling why it was so expensive and how each one is individually tye dyed (as he showed us no two are the same) and they wont crack in the wash and they have no seams and are made like a sock ( I don't know why that's significant but oh well) and how there were only 3 places who sold them in London, so I brought it. He could have just been lying and saying that to make me buy it, it could have been genuine but either way I was a sucker for the speech and I brought it. I kind of wanted a dolphin top, but they had none and I knew there is probably one on eBay, but I feel in love with this wolf. It's quite a dark t-shirt, not very summery, but cute and will go well over leggings, over skinny jeans. Also with disco pants (which I still really want to get!!) and basically anything that's tight fitting!

As soon was we got to the market place I saw a dress I liked the look of and I went to look at it then as I went to walk away the woman instantly started lowering the price! I felt bad saying no though, since she had lowered the price and all, but there is no point in wasting money. I went to Camden on a mission to buy: a dress, a bag and an animal t-shirt (similar to my unicorn one). Two of the three were successful, I got a bag and a top, but I couldn't find the type of dress I was looking for. Here are my purchases (I forgot to include the bag in these pictures but I will show you because I love it so much!)

After we had looked at all the stalls in the market area (core blimey though, such a maze!) and I considered buying a fake spike earring, we got some food then headed off on the hunt for a toilet. When we finally got to the toilets, which were actually rather nice I was expecting some gross type of toilet or something. We found the amazing graffiti. I would show you a picture, but I took none because my phone doesn't have a very good camera.

It then lead to the stables, where they had the most amazing Indian inspired stalls! I loved them all and they had such amazing rucksacks everywhere, I regret not buying one, and amazing earrings. I settled on this bag I've been looking for a bag like this everywhere, it's just such a chilled bag. If that's even a thing? I don't know, I just think its a really cool pretty bag and good for holding stuff. I want one with another pattern too though, so whenever I next go on holiday (hopefully soon!) I'll get another similar type there, because I know they do these style bag. I remember last year my mum getting one and me taking the mick and now I love it and always borrow it!

I then also brought some little rings from another stall (not the stables anymore ) I call it little but it was actually pretty large. it was all Indian themed too and they such cool rugs and wall hangings and awhh everything was so nice there. I wanted it all! But yeah I brought some rings (5 for £3 woop).
I also brought this little purse thingy, I'm not sure what I'd use it for, but it was cheap and I liked the pattern. Although I was just looking at it and realised some of the threads are little loose, but oh well!

Then I also got a diary from this stool, and I was so excited. I've been looking for a cool diary for ages, and this one was so beautiful and the one on display looked like such good quality pages and so I brought one. However when i got home and opened it I had a pretty nasty shock I guess you could say.
Firstly the pages are really thick like an almost fabric. Also it looks like the pages are covered in hair, so I went to flick it off, but it looks like they are part of the page, which isn't even the grossest part. There are random stains and marks all over the pages and it's creepy! Some really look like blood stains and I'm not sure what they are and how they got there but all I know is it's creepy and weird and scary and I don't think I will actually use the diary, which is sad because it's so pretty but the pages are just so...weird and scary.

After a d few hours of worrying about my cursed diary though, I was told that its just nature and that those stains are actually petals and leaves and stuff. Woops. But the other day I went to Camden and found literally the exact same diaries but the pages weren't stained, so I guess mine was just an unfortunate one!

Oh, I also brought a bandanna! it's pretty stiff and hard to fold into shape, but it feels liker really good quality and I love the colour. I think in summer a bikini with a bandanna looks so nice!

This post has been in my drafts for absolutely ages and I keep forgetting to post it, but hark, today is the day! Hark. Hark? Yes I just used the word hark, I'm doubting whether its a real word but I have no spell check correcting me so I guess it is. I've been to Camden twice since this post, and Im going again today with my mum and sister to hopefully buy a wall hanging for my room, but I'm really not sure what I want to do with the room anymore. There are so many ideas and I was so set on one idea but then I heard others and looked at room inspiration and now I have no idea! I'm also excited to go to his really cool shop I found last time I went which has some really retro clothes in it, loads of the stuff reminded me of Saved By The Bell, oh how I miss it. Although I barely remember it, I miss it. Jeez I've written too much. Okay, bye, if you read this all, good on you! I was going to make it into two separate posts but nah.

Jim Chapman Outfit

21 August 2014

Hey guys! So today has been eventful. I was meant to go out at 11, I woke up five minutes before that, made the plans later then ended up lying in bed for god knows how long watching random youtube videos. Then I hunted through all the clothes my sister is throwing out, which was not the time since I was already like an hour and a half late. After that I had to find a foundation dark enough to fit my skin tone at the moment (hell yeah to holiday tans) but I could not find one and let me tell you, my skin is rebelling against me and spots are everywhere. However, finally by three o'clock after all the procrastinating and searching for stuff I finally went out.

I decided I quite liked my outfit and wanted to show you guys it. I felt a lot like Jim Chapman and I'm not sure why.

The white tshirt is just one of my dads and the shirt is a really old one that belonged to my sister. I think they go well together most of all because the tshirt is super baggy but the shirt, its not not  baggy but its not tight either. It's the perfect size to wear over a larger tshirt and not get swallowed up into a mass of clothing. Although I do wear a baggy shirt over a tshirt, I feel like having a more fitted shirt works best.
Okay I have no idea what happened to the amera quality, my friend Lauren took the pictures, lets just blame her. I'm kidding, I love her all go check out her blog its fabulous.
Tshirt: Next (so soft!)
Jeans: Topshop (not the exact same, but close)
Shoes: Office
Shirt: River Island [very old, but I found similar here!]
Bag is from Primark ages ago, but there are always good lil bags there
The checkered shirt added some colour to the outfit and I felt like because it was quite plain, I would need a long necklace. Obviously, I went to my trustworthy Urban Outfitters necklace which seems to reappear in every blog post. Sorry, but I do wear it a heckle lot. Then I paired it with my new Vagabonds.
I was contemplaing whether to buy these shoes for ages, since they were so expesnive and I knew I could probably find a pait which werent that similar but for much cheaper. I was just going to ignore the ruge for these shoes but it was constantly on my mind, and my wonderful Mum offered to go halves with me. Honestly, these are such comfy shoes and I can walk in them for ages. I love the style so much and Im so glad I did get these because I feel like they will stay in fashion for a while (plus when dont you need a beautiful pair of black shoes!?) and since they're Vagabonds theyre such good waulity and should last years! Oh b oy, I do love them I could talk about them for years. Although I already am rather tall, then again i cant really teel since everyone in my family is extremelt small and apparently so are a lot of my friends so I dont know if I am tall or just an average height. I think I am rarely tall though. Anyway, wearing these make me quite a bit higher than some of my friends, but I think its worth it since they are so beautfiul!
EXCUSE MY GROSS NAILS I SWEAR I HAVE SORTED THEM OUT NOW THOUGH. In summer I alqays paint my nails because like woo Im allowed but I always go for black and I feel like I should jazz it up a little but I love black nails. This is to show you the colour of the shirt and detail better just in case you were wondering why they're here. 
How are all your summers going? I hope everyone got the results they wanted and if not, don't worry everything will be okay! I feel like I cant give very wise words of wisdom though as tomorrow I'm only receiving on important grade, everything is next year for me..Thank you for reading and adios for now friends, I shall be back soon :)x

Hey guys! Although we still have a while before school, I am on the hunt for a rucksack. I like a rucksack for school best because I have to walk to and home from school with such a heavy bag, I like how it balances out the weight.

The other day at SITC I saw a bunch of cool rucksacks. I saw a sun and moon one which I absolutely adored and I found the exact one, but it's not in stock anymore! It was from Motel Rocks and was absolutely beautiful. I'm so annoyed its not in stock anymore, but oh well.

I also saw a girl with a plain black rucksack who had sewed on those images things you can get and sew onto bags of bands she liked and films and whatnot, and I thought that was so cool. I think I might try that, but then again do i really want people to see all the bands that I like and possibly put myself out there to be mocked? Maybe. See if it wasn't school I wouldn't mind, but it is school and people are judgmental, so who knows.

Anyway, I thought I would show you guys some rucksacks since I find them so hard to find. If I dont need one I can find 945 acceptable ones, then as soon as I'm in desperate need of one I cant find any that I really like and loads are so expensive. So here is some inspiration (I hope) for you if you are in need of a backpack.

1  |  2  |  3  |  4  |  5 is no longer in stock but how pretty  |  6  |  7  |  8  |  9  |  10  |  11  |  12  

I decided to buy the second one because it was quite cheap and looks like really good quality. I couldn't decide between the blue or black but figured if I want the black one I can buy that too since they're both cheap. I think I might sew some stuff onto the blue one but I'm not sure.

I really like number 3 but personally I would feel too extravagant taking it to school, but its so lovely. I also really like 7 but it is quite expensive. I like the bold colours and the pattern a lot though.

Sorry for the random uploading of posts guys, but its summer and I always seem to be running late so I wake up then go straight out then get back and lighting is a mess. I will post once a week though at least but I can not guarantee when or what time but it will happen!


6 August 2014

Hey guys! Woah long time no see.

The past few weeks I was on holiday and had my marvelous friend Hollie upload my  pre-made posts for me, sine I forgot that scheduling posts was a thing you could do. I underestimated how many blog posts I needed though so sorry for not having regular posts. To be fair though, have I ever had a proper schedule? I don't think so but that will change and but all is okay because I am back!

I wanted to do one of those cool shots of laptops that people do where everything looks so perfect like on my bed or something, but then realised how late I was running so this one will have to do! I didn't really know what other pictures to include and I personally don't like reading any posts without pictures so i thought I would try and add to the prettiness of this post, if you will.  
I want to do a holiday post for you guys but I kind of forgot to take that many pictures whilst I was away...But I went to a little island near Spain called Menorca. I got a braid whilst I was there and it's like 10cm longer than the rest of my hair which is annoying but its so pretty so I have mixed feelings about it still. I probably will do a post about it but not yet because I'm lazy and cant be bothered to go get the cameras and hunt for pictures and I just want to chat today. A very one sided chat, but still a chat.

I am so excited to be back because so much is happening, also when I came back and went on bloglovin' I forgot how many blog posts I would need to catch up on, so today is my 'catch up day'. I was meant to have plans and I got all excited because I already knew my outfit (I'm lame I know) but now they've been moved back to the evening so I have the whole day to chill and blog and watch Teen Wolf and Orange Is The New Black and The Fosters and tidy my room and sort out my life. Basically I'll be procrastinating the entire time so I don't have to do loads of school work. But who wants to do work the day their back from holiday!?

But let me tell you things that are happening this week, you may not really care but oh boy am I excited.

On Thursday, I'm getting my braces off. I haven't even had them that long, around a year I think but gosh darn I am excited to get them taken off. I have always been really self conscience of my teeth with braces because most of my friends have already had them, which didn't really bother me, but it was the fact I could never properly clean my teeth. Then once you become self conscience of one thing you notice it on every other person so whenever I saw other people with braces I would look at their teeth and some people just don't clean their braces very well, and I always got nervous that that was what my teeth looked like. That problem will be gone soon though.

Then this weekend it is Summer In The City, which is a youtube convention for those who don't know. I am so excited I keep having random dancing break outs because I get so excited. I hope you get them too and know what I mean.. Everyone has them. I think. Although Troye Sivan isn't going which I was a little bit upset about but the line up is so great and its going to be so good! Also, I'll have lovely braceless teeth and blonde hair and tanned skin ready for all the pictures! However as I realised looking at some of the pictures of me on holiday I really need to practice my smile. I was told though that I have a really happy smile though because you can also see my bottom teeth, so that's a good thing I guess!

Also at SITC some of my great friends are coming up to London who I met through Tumblr. I know some people don't understand internet friends, but they are some of my bestest friends and I can't wait to finally meet them. I get that you have to be careful in case they're like some pedophillic old men but I know these guys are good and I am so freaking exited oh my god!

I then have three weeks left of summer (that's sad to think, but only one more year of school hell yeah) which I can see friends, yet most are going away when I get back which sucks. But oh well!

All I can think about whilst writing this post is wraps, there's a really wrap place near me and I am really craving one. I feel like I'm pregnant jeez. I think I may have to go get one as soon as possible god.

This was just a catch up post but I am just so happy and excited and wanted to share it all! Although I am a little bit nervous about SITC because my camera uses up its battery so quickly, even though I'm on energy saving mode, so I may need to get that checked out after SITC. Imagine if it runs out though, Ill be so mad! My phone has a really bad quality camera and the whole time all I want to do is take pictures and capture every memory!

How are your guys summer going? Ahh it feels great to be back, and I think it's the one year anniversary of my blog soon, woah. Anyway, I hope all you guys are well and I'll see you soon!
