Hey Guys!
Hope you all had an amazing Christmas, is it just me or has everyday this week felt like Saturday? 
I've had a really lovely week spending time with my family, eating loads and watching a ridiculous amount of movies everyday. 
Yesterday my sister and I went to the Cinema to watch Pitch Perfect which by the way is amazinggg!! I loved it so much and I thought the comedy in it was brilliant - it actually made me laugh out loud. I would definitely recommend it :-) Anyway, I thought I'd show you not only what I wore, but what my sister wore as well :-) We both went for quite casual looks as we like to be comfortable when we go to the cinema and as I've said before, I always choose comfort over style!

I hope everyone is well and enjoying the sales ;-) 
Lots of Love

Mamma Knows Best

Jumper & Jacket - Topshop
Snood & Shoes - Primark 
Skirt - ASOS
Belt - Levis
Bag - A Gift

Hey guys! 
So far, today has been a supper lazy day; I've spend most of it singing badly, dancing to really bad music and watching 'Weddingtv' with my Mum and Sister . We were meant to be doing our family Christmas food shopping tonight but my Parents have decided that we're going to do it tomorrow instead so in theory, I could have spent the day in my tracksuit bottoms with my hair up and no makeup on...
My outfit today is quite casual as I wasn't planning on doing much but I thought I'd share it with you all anyway. I've had this jacket for a couple of years now and I got it in one of the Topshop Boxing day sales for around £20 (bargain!) Anyone who knows me well will tell you I live for the sales. Every year my Sister, Mother and I wake up ridiculously early on Boxing Day and hit the high street to find the best deals we can. I suppose its like our little tradition! I love the buzz you get when you get a really good purchase for a bargain price! 
I can't get enough of this skirt! It's so versatile I can wear it with almost anything and its so easy to dress up or dress down. My snood is the one I showed a couple of posts ago and I must say, Primark have done well! It keeps me warm and its the perfect length!

This coming weekend should be quite Christmassy & I will try to blog as much of it as I can :-) I can't believe how fast Christmas is creeping up on us but I hope everyone is well and enjoying the holidays! 

Lots of Love,

Holy Ground

Dress - Marks & Spencer 
Coat - BHS
Shoes - Jane Norman


Hey guys!
Today I went to Church and I thought I'd share with you all what I wore. This dress is one of my favourites and it's my Dad who actually spotted it when we were shopping sometime during summer! My Dad and I don't usually share the same taste when it comes to dresses but I was pleasantly surprised when he pointed this one out. It's quite a thick and structured skater dress which I love as this makes it more formal than a casual. I paired it with a textured coat I purchased about five years ago but never really wore and I think it works quite well with the dress. To keep the look simple and polished, I decided not to wear any jewellery.

On a different note, I have now officially finished my first term at University and I can't believe it's gone so fast! It's crazy but I'll talk more about 'my experience so far' when I do my University advice blog post sometime this week. I now get to stay home for a whole 4 weeks and I'm so happy because this means I get to spend lots of time with my family - anyone who knows me knows I'm a big family girl! I'm really looking forward to Christmas as I have mentioned several times already and I just feel like I'm in a really happy place in my life at the moment.

I hope everyone is well & hope you all have a good week!!
Lots of Love,

Saturday 1st December: Surprise, I'm home!

10:00 : Breakfast date with my friend Natalie 
12:00 - 17:00 : Attempting to work through a 2500 word essay on Leadership...fun!
The remains of the presents I got my sister, I got her two Peplum style tops (a black one and a coral one) and some monochrome vertical striped jeans
I baked her a Marble Oreo Cake and it was sooo yummy! If you would like me to do a post showing how I made it let me know in the comments section and I will!
I'm drooling
The Birthday gal didn't want a photo but I liked her outfit. Top - Mango// Shirt - Jack Wills// Jeans - American Apparel. 
Last time I visited my Mum bought this ice cream specially for me and banned everyone else from eating it because she wanted me to taste it (bless her) and I had it again this weekend even though it was freezing. Hey ho. It's really tasty & if you haven't tried it, do. My phone case is from H&M.

Onto my Outfit...

Shirt - Primark 
Jumper - Disney Parks (Florida)
Necklace & Jacket - H&M
Jeans - Forever21
Scarf - Tie Rack

Hey guys!
So if you follow me on twitter then you may know that this weekend I went back home to surprise my family! It was my sister's Birthday on Saturday 1st December and it's mine on Wednesday 5th. We've never spent our Birthday's apart but because it's so expensive for me to go down and visit, I wasn't suppose to be going back until Christmas but I really wanted to be with them all so I booked my ticket home without any of them knowing. I decided to keep it a secret to make the surprise that much better. I had my house keys so when I arrived on Friday evening I just helped myself in. Their reaction was the best thing ever and I really wish I had filmed it! They were all so surprised and it was so nice to be back. 
Friday evening we all stayed up and watched TV until it was Saturday then we sung Happy Birthday to my sister and chilled out. 
Saturday morning my sister went ice skating with her friends then she went into town later on with some other friends. I had breakfast with my close friend Natalie who just happened to be down from Uni that same weekend and it was so nice to catch up with her as we hadn't seen each other since September. 
I then had to spend most of my afternoon writing an essay on what makes a successful leader but since I enjoyed the topic and the question, it was quite fun... I'm such a geek ha. At this point my parents had gone to Costco for some food shopping and my sister was still out so it was nice to have some peace and quite whilst working. 
Everyone got back home late afternoon, I stopped working and started baking. I wanted to make my Sister a really cool Birthday cake and so I thought what would be cooler than a Marble Oreo Cake!! It was so soo yummy! We had a chilled out evening which included nibbling on party food palettes, enjoying some cake, watching Strictly Come Dancing, The X Factor, I'm a Celebrity and then my Mum and I did a bit of online shopping (or in my case browsing). All in all, Saturday was a lovely day!
 I cannot believe my sister is now 14 and I'll be 19 on Wednesday, it seems like just yesterday she was turning 9 and I was the one turning 14!! It really is crazy how fast time flies! 

In other news, Christmas is only around the corner and I am feeling 110% festive! I love Uni but I'm so excited to go home and spend a month with my family and home friends! I've got 2 Balls coming up next week and I'm still trying to find outfits to wear so don't be surprised if you see a post in the near future asking for dress advice! 

I think next I will be putting up a post about University & UCAS/ personal statement advice so if you have any questions on this topic which you would like me to answer put them in the comments so I have a idea of what you guys want to hear! If you want to ask me questions about my course, I had originally applied for Finance and Economics but I have now changed to Business Studies and I am minoring in Marketing and Economics so please bare this in mind because I don't think I'd be the right person to consolidate in if you want to do law, engineering or things outside the business field. 
I hope everyone is well & I hope you enjoyed this post! 

Lots of Love,
