♥ What's on my Phone?

Hey guys,

Today I'm going to show you around my phone :) I have a Samsung Galaxy S3, it's the blue/black version, I currently have one crack on the screen that I got just a week ago baring in mind I've had this phone for nearly 2 years #justsayin. That, to me is a record in itself! I'm on Three and I have unlimited data in my contract which is a saviour when roaming about the place :) So I decided to take screenshots of my phone so you can view my theme, fonts, apps and all of that. I know I personally love looking at what other people and fashion bloggers have on their phone so I wanted to join the party.

The first screenshot is of my lock screen, it's a beautiful illustration of Nehemiah 8:10 "The joy of the Lord is my strength" which I think is a beautiful and encouraging quote to start my day on! My screen is a simple *swipe* motion, I haven't bothered with a password, I have before but it's just too much hassle I find!

The second screenshot shows my love for Paris in the background, I think I got this photo off of Pinterest and I love it, I loved it so much that I instagrammed it. In the top bar I have all of my notifications, below is a weather app, I blurred out my location but (just letting you know it doesn't really appear like that irl). 

Below are my favourite apps, they're not in any order because I click randomly on these 8 more frequently then any other apps. The first app I go on in the morning is definitely Instagram! Some of these icons I grabbed from different themes I downloaded, if you want to know which ones leave a comment :)

At the very bottom I have my messages, dial, apps drawer, contacts and Chrome.




Here is my second screen as you can see I have Gmail at the top, which I honestly don't think it's very good at all, it's pretty awful and doesn't always load new e-mails and remains on very old ones that I have so it's very unreliable, half of the time I use gmail on Chrome because it's much more reliable. 

Next I have Blogger, I hardly use it though and then next to that I have my Alarm widget that I just tap and then it comes on. 

Underneath that I have Snapchat which I use regularly I currently have over 4,000 points? 

Next to that I have Whatsapp which I use more frequently than text if I'm honest, I paid around £0.69p for it and I think you have to pay every year? It's a genius way to send messages, photos and videos!

Under those I have Google Play Music, which I use to play all my purchases on from the Play Store! Beside that I have Bloglovin an app that you can view all the blogs you follow on there easily. Liking posts have never been easier.

Then I have the Play Store, my Files, the Three app which I use to track my bill and whether or not I go over it and then I have Settings.

The second screenshot are my Photography apps in the photography folder, my most used apps out of these are Photowonder and Photogrid. Photowonder for editing photos and Photogrid to get that cool instagram, white border effect as recommended by my awesome friend Vana!


 


Below are my Photography apps continued, I use Google Photos regularly to transfer photos from my phone to my Google+ where I share photos privately and then copy the image url. A Beautiful Mess was an app I bought because I followed their blog, I don't use it often but I love all the different things you can do to your photos!




Below I have my Games and Music folders, concerning Games I use High School Story the most, currently, that could change soon, then I would say I use Charades after that simply because me and my boyfriend love to play the Music theme. Teen Vogue Me Girl is also a fun app because it's to do with fashion and then I have Virtual Families which I went through a phase of adoring and spending real life money on that in the end I just stopped playing it, it always seems like a great idea at the time! Next in my Music folder I have apps that I don't really use anymore, I haven't even used Shazam since downloading it I tend to stick to my Play Music app.


  


I then have my Tools folder, I use the Calculator, Inkpad, National Rail (lifesaver), Maps (for when I'm feeling lost) and Voice Recorder apps the most!




Below are my Shopping and God folders, the only apps I actually go on concerning shopping is probably Amazon, Argos, Ebay, Groupon and NUS Extra which is an app for my NUS card where I get cool discounts and things. On my God folder I really only use the Bible and IHOP a few times, I have yet to really get acquainted with the other apps you see.


 


Okay, so onto the third screen I have my Calender which is basically my planner for everything concerning life, I put when I next work there, when I meet up with friends and important events that I need to remember and there's a timer on each of them so I don't forget. A really fun part is that I can add stickers to the day I have events on and you know how stickers make everything better. I then have my Music Player widget that I can just click and it'll play right there and then. I have book apps, Skype, Keek, Facebook messenger apps. 
In my Watch folder I use the Cineworld app for looking at what showings are in the cinema, I use IMDB for researching my favourite actors, I hate it when they have the little bots haha one of those apps is Cartoon HD which I use regularly along with Movietube.


  


Here is a screenshot of my two favourite apps

Twitter and Instagram be sure to follow me on both when you get the chance!


 
  

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, it's different to a fashion or beuaty related post but I hope you enjoyed it all the same, what apps are you guys using and does anyone recommend anything? 
God bless, 
All my love,

Style Inspiration: ♥THE CARRIE DIARIES♥

Hey guys, 

So recently, I had blogger's block even though it may not seem like it having posted everyday for the past few days I just, until about 10 minutes ago had blogger's block. I don't really know if it's a "thing" but if not I'm making it a thing now. I got inspiration from a post I saw about ideas for fashion blogs after yes, typing that into google and Google did not disappoint! Here is the link to the website that helped a sister out of the blogger's block abyss:


I'll list a few of their tips here just to give you the gist of the blogpost:

Your favorite item of clothing at the moment: What are you loving in your closet right now? The thing you can’t live without? Your absolute best purchase and why.
A fashion problem you have.. Having a hard time finding flattering jeans? Maxi dresses for petites?
A solution you found… How did you find the perfect pair of jeans? Do tell!
Your closet: How do you keep your clothes?

Genius!

Anyway, back to the purpose of this post, how many of you guys watch The Carrie Diaries? I don't know if it's come over to the UK yet but I started watching it on the US's Netflix and then preceded to watch Season 2 online. If you guys haven't watched it or even heard of it do not fret, I'll place a trailer here so that you don't miss out.. Did I mention Austin Butler's one of the leads? No? okay..




So you've caught a glimpse of the wonder that is The Carrie Diaries, now I want to give you a glimpse of the fashion. Kudos to the show's costume designer Eric Daman who reinvented 80's fashion. Vibrant colour, vibrant pattern and skyscraper heels adorn the beautiful cast and it's all about big hair. There is one word to describe the fashion on the Carrie Diaries and that, is funky. Just saying that word makes me cry a little - so I wanted to show a few outfits from the show (credit to Google for these beautiful photos) and I also wanted to include some pieces that you can get online to channel your inner Carrie.

Hope you enjoy!














Here are the items I picked out that I feel reflect Carrie Bradshaw's style within the show, as you can probably tell there is a lot of colour, funky patterns, bold expressions of shoe and a touch of neon. While searching for similar items I came across this website called Wornontv.net - it's an awesome website that take the fashion of our favourite tv shows therefore enabling us to look like them. What more could you want?  

I will list all the items and their prices below :)

Current Reads: Magazines (Company, Seventeen, Teen Vogue)

Hey guys, 

Today is a post about magazines, I don't know about you guys but I buy at least one magazine a month, I started reading tween magazines years ago like Mizz and Shout and then moving onto Sugar which hasn't hit shelves for at least a year, Sugar really was the only magazine that I bought every single month for at least 2 years. It was the perfect combination of humour and fashion as well as interviews with my favourite celebrities. Now, growing up I have moved on to magazines like Company and Glamour but it's still lovely to hang onto my inner tween self and buy Seventeen magazine and Teen Vogue every once in a while! Below I will have a short review of the magazines I have found myself reading so I hope you enjoy, I haven't really seen anyone do a post like this before but in saying that some bloggers may have already done this already if so I'm jumping on the band wagon and if not, I'm the driver.

MAGAZINES





This magazine started out in the USA and apparently it was the first teen magazine published in the US - I was surprised to find this out myself but apparently it has been running since September 1944, which is a heck of a long time and they have obviously done so well for themselves growing even better through the years.  It began as a publication geared towards inspiring teen girls to become role models in work and citizenship. Soon after its debut, Seventeen took a more fashion and romance-oriented approach in presenting their material, while still maintaining their model of promoting self-confidence in young women. It's one of my favourite magazines in terms of layout and fashion content and most importantly has articles that touch on pressing issues affecting our generation. Seventeen's total circulation in the year 2013 is 2,010,619 and is a monthly magazine. Here a few notable events that occurred in the magazine:

 1) Sylvia Plath submitted forty-five pieces to Seventeen before her first short story, "And Summer Will Not Come Again", was published in the August 1950 issue.
2) In 2010, writer Jamie Keiles conducted The Seventeen Magazine Project, a social experiment in which she followed the advice of Seventeen magazine for 30 days.
3) In the early 1980s, Whitney Houston appeared in Seventeen and became one of the first black women to grace the cover of the magazine.
4) In 2012, in response to reader protests against the magazine's altering of model photos, Seventeen pledged not to Photoshop model photos.

Here is one of my favourite pages in the magazine:





Another favourite of mine is Glamour although it is aimed for ladies older than me, I don't buy it as regularly as Seventeen or Teenvogue and Company it's more of a magazine that I buy when it's on offer for £2. Which isn't really a good enough reason to put it on my favourites list, I love reading all the way through it though when I get it, the articles are fun to read and they always have really long fashion and beauty related spreads.
Glamour magazine was also founded in the United States found by Conde Nast publications it was founded in 1939 and originally called Glamour of Hollywood. It targets women 18-49 with a median age of 33 years old and Glamour's total circulation as of June 2013 is 2,300,854 it's also a monthly magazine. Since 1980 the magazine has held an awards event called "Women of the Year" awards ceremony which recognises women in the public eye.
Here is one of my favourite fashion spreads in the most recent issue out on the shelves, gorgeously presented right?





This is probably the magazine that I buy every month without fail, I love everything about it the content is great and it's filled with visual-exciting layouts. My favourite part of this magazine is the How I did it articles where women that have different careers such as being in the music industry, owning a cake shop or working in the fashion industry. This magazine was founded in the UK it celebrated their 30th birthday in 2008 and it's a monthly magazine focusing on fashion, celebrities and lifestyle magazine.




Founded by Leslie Ludy, this magazine is an online magazine and faith-based, it's filled with wonderful and uplifting articles as well as articles that tackle serious issues in a girls Christian life. It's worth the read and is great food for the soul plus it's FREE (for fweee) being an online magazine and all. I'll place their purpose of the magazine in their words:

The setapartgirl magazine exists for no other reason than to point young women to Jesus Christ! We pray that you will be encouraged, uplifted and strengthened in your pursuit of Him as you read the words contained within these pages. We are a simple team of Christ-followers who are far from the finished picture of set-apartness; but we share one thing in common…the desire to give our lives to Jesus Christ fully and completely without reserve. We pray this magazine will inspire you to become a “lily among thorns” in this generation, by His grace, and for His glory.




Did you guys ever watch The Hills, I got into this magazine after watching Lauren Conrad get an internship there, since then I waited to get my hands on a copy - I don't think they sold it in this country at that time. They then began selling it in WHSmith and I bought it there for a while but I think over the years it wore a hole in my purse pocket and there's only so many times I can ask my parents for enough pocket money for me to go out with my friends and to buy Sugar AND Teen Vogue. Recently they sell Teen Vogue in Tescoes and seeing as it's cheaper than Seventeen it's always the first I reach for out of the two - price does matter girls.
Teen Vogue began as a teen version of Vogue it focuses on fashion and celebrities and offers information about the latest entertainment and feature stories on current issues and events.




I hope you guys enjoyed this post, what magazines are you guys reading? And what are your opinions on these magazines?

All my love,
God bless,

Steal Her Style: VANESSA HUDGENS ♥

Hey guys, 

I have a series of posts (I know..another one?!) that I haven't actually done before, this is a Steal Her Style post where I find a picture of  a celebrities style that I love and attempt to find similar items and cheaper items that match. I used to follow sites that did this when I was a little younger sites like Dress Like Selena Gomez, those sites were awesome. I'm not sure if they're still running but if you give it a little search on Google you'll probably be able to find it!

Here is Vanessa's outfit that inspired these items:




She always looks gorgeous, I love her bohemian style especially the outfits she wears at Coachella. Hands up who wishes they looked like her!? 






If you guys want to see more of these posts be sure to post a comment on a celebrity's style that I should try to "steal" as it were. 

Hope you guys enjoyed this short post!
God bless,
All my love,

#1 What's in my February Ebay basket?

Hey guys,

I have a new series idea that I wanted to start and I think it's going to be centered around my online baskets for example what's lying in my Amazon, Ebay or Etsy basket, I figured it was a good way to display my wishlists and items I purchase, thank goodness I haven't yet applied to get a Debit card simply because I don't trust myself. No, I do but I just haven't applied for one yet (shoot me). Anyway, this series will involve numerous stores that (I wish) I could buy from, I mean, sometimes I am able to using my parents cards and paying them back but most of the time it's not worth the hassle. I have never really online shopped apart from Amazon and Ebay because items on those sites are cheap with a capital "C". I also think this is an interesting way to see how much I like to pretend/fantasy shop and to see the huge total mount up at the end of the checkout, it's kind of a bonus that I don't actually get to do the damage to my card but yes anyway, most of these finds are very inexpensive so I hope you guys enjoy all the cute Spring/Summer items I have found...

EBAY


I know what you guys are thinking.. "that's a lot of pastel" I've become a bit pastel crazy but aside from that there isn't much of my favourite Winter colour and that's Black.. my favourite safety zone of a colour, the colour that goes with everything. I honestly 100% swear to you guys I actually went to Church in all black today and I didn't even mean to (I promise). Letting go of the colour black will be refreshing for me, I love colour on my outfit (although today stated otherwise) so to be able to step out in feminine and girly colours will be good for me! All the links to everything I have posted are attached all you need to do is simply click on them :) 

Also if you guys want to check out my Polyvore I have loads of sets that I create in order to place them on my blog so you can keep up to date with them by following me if you want to!


















9. Tribal Necklace £3.99 


I hope you enjoyed this post and have got a load of inspiration for Spring and Summer and let me know if you guys are interested in seeing more of my "What's in my [insert month here] [insert website here] basket?" I would love to see if you guys enjoy them so you can comment below if you really want to :)
God bless,
All my love,


New Look: NEW ARRIVALS!

Hey loves,

I've recently taken quite a few trips to New Look in town recently and I have honestly been so excited by their new arrivals. I find myself swooning over everything around the entrance and filling my basket with things that, when I get to the counter, I won't be able to afford. I wanted to share some of their things that have recently attracted me to their Spring/Summer collection 2014. There are additional items that I found in the actual store but most of them are the items that you see before you. Once pay-day comes around I'm sure I will be able to do a haul post because I am definitely investing in some of these gorgeous items!



New Look: Just In #1


One of my favourite themes that I found in their new arrivals was the outpouring of Pastels. Pastels this spring are bigger than ever, I'm excited to go pastel-crazy! Additionally Floral Prints are back, not as huge as Pastels but that is just my opinion :)

Starting from the left to the right:
1) Mint Green Jumper £15
This looks cropped and I have been in need of getting a cropped jumper for so long because, hands up girls who tuck their jumpers into their skirts and get attacked by frumpiness. It's hard to hide it when you have extra thick material under so the perfect solution? Get it cropped!

2) Shell Pink Boxy Chiffon £15
My best friend actually bought this shirt and it looked so cute on her! These shirts are so versatile you can add a statement necklace for a night out and you can add a jumper over it for a casual look, not only that - add shorts and you're ready for summer. I'm in love with the Dusty Pink colour, it's stunning and very feminine and girly.

3) Mint Green Floral Gem Long Sleeve Jumper £23
Although this jumper is similar to the first jumper I love the floral detail that makes any outfit that much more adorable.

4) White Floral Print Tea £20
I am a huge fan of floral tea dresses so when I set my eyes on this one, I fell in love literally. Imagine wearing this in summer, it would be gorgeous!



New Look: JUST IN #2



Starting from the left:
1) Mint Green Hello Brooklyn T-Shirt £9.99
I love Graphic tees (to a certain extent) and t-shirts with quotes on, especially if it's something to do with America!

2) Green Daisy Jacquered Boxy T-Shirt £15
The daisy/floral trend in white on pastel shirts is very on trend, I think the trend is adorable and very girly. I honestly don't think that florals in Spring will ever go out of style.

3) 43inch Light Blue Acid Wash Jeans £22.99
One of my friends bought acid jeans when we were in London with a few of our work friends and I honestly fell in love with acid jeans from that day so when I saw that New Look were doing a pretty much identical version of the jeans she bought I also was ecstatic to find that they were much more cheaper and affordable!

4) Mint Green Daisy Statement Necklace £7.99
The following seasons are also all about statement necklaces so with the combination of statment jewellery and pastels you can't go wrong. The colour gold and pastel when it comes to jewellery have a gorgeous touch of femininity that I love!



New Look: JUST IN #3


Starting from left to right:
1) Mint Green Colour Block Structured Clutch £16
Althought a bit more on the pricey side for a clutch the combination of mint green tones and the structure creates a very unique take on clutches, it also appears to me as a more futuristic reinvention of the clutch bag!

2) Blue Crepe Longline Blazer £28
Blazers can create a preppy look on any outfit, I think a blazer is also as versatile as the dusty pink shirt just in the way that you can add it with a smart dress, with work clothing and over a day dress it can add that touch of cute pastel detail.

3) 2 pack Mint Green and Pink Spot Print Hair Scrunchies £2.99
In case anyone hasn't noticed but the 90's are officially back and yes, that includes the glorious "scrunchie", so guys feels free to raid your mum's hair accessories because the Scrunchie, is back.

  • 4) 6 Pack Mint Green Bow Enamel Stud Earrings Set £4.99
  • I have never really been much of an earring wearer, not if they are from places like New Look and Primark simply because with jewellery I like to be able to wear them on all the time and hardly ever take them off, however, aren't these the cutest earring pack you've ever set your eyes on? The designs are gorgeous and the fact that they are Mint Green is a bonus!


New Look: JUST IN #4


Last but not least I found a cute collection of dresses (and a maxi-skirt) that are too cute to pass out on Spring and Summer.

From left to right:
  • 1) Parisian Light Blue Floral Print Cross Back Denim Dress £23
  • I think that the fact that it is named after the parisian lights just makes me want to purchase it even more, not only that but this kind of pattern is very unique and not you're usual pattern like a floral or animal print so bonus points for the designer, I also feel like there is something very 1950's about buttoned up dresses all the way down the middle. I also feel like it makes dressing and undressing out ofthe dress a whole lot easier.

  • 2) Black Sweetheart Neck Floral Print Skater Dress £20
  • When I saw this dress I wanted to do a little dance because everything from the sweetheart neckline to the beautiful clusters of flowers to the colour scheme really was a beautiful, visual party for me. I feel like fashion is recycling itself right before our very eyes and that is a wonderful feeling.

  • 3) Mint Green 1/2 Sleeve Daisy Print Skater Dress £18
  • Going along with the beautiful pastel theme this dress matches a previous item, obviously there is no way of wearing one on top of the other, that would be pointless but you can add a cream or white jumper over this dress for those chilly days OR you can add sandals and a crotchet top for those beautiful warm, sunny days.

  • 4) Coral Button Front Maxi Skirt £18
  • On a previous Valentine's Day series post I posted a coral dress that was the exact same style to this maxi-skirt so to avoid an item-repeater (Lizzie Mcguire movie reference anyone?... ANYONE?!) I decided to add the maxi-skirt version of it. I'm really not a huge maxi-skirt wearer but this one is gorgeous and this summer if I'm brave enough I might just as well venture out into the world that is the "maxi-skirt/dress".  

I hope you guys enjoyed this post!
God bless,
All my love,

RECENT HAUL #2 New Look, The Works, Claire's, Birthday Presents.

Hey loves,

Mini Haul number two is here, I seriously think I have a problem, a major shopping problem - no one give me a credit card! Ever. I hope you guys enjoy haul posts, I'm trying to get into a blog-posting rhythm. I'm excited to show you guys the following items that I've recently purchased. If you haven't already scrolled down through the photos you may notice my slight obsession for stationary, it's almost better than buying clothes. I love writing so therefore it's acceptable for me to go crazy on stationary and notebooks it doesn't feel as guilty as buying clothing that I'm only going to wear once.




New Look Tan Boots - £17.00
The story that go along with these boots involve, me entering New Look, looking at the stand where they advertise new items, picking them up without looking at the price and leaving the store. Okay, maybe it didn't go as smoothly as that I actually took a long time looking in the mirror trying these boots on and the black boots in my previous haul post. I snapchatted most of the girls on my Snapchat (the amazing things you can do these days) and they replied instantly with "I love the black ones" and "I love the brown ones" so I decided that I would get these anyway but in the end I got both. So that's the story of my boot life.
 Additionally, I love the round-toed look of boots, it looks better opposed to pointy boots and these are so comfortable all I can say about disliking these boots is the cut, maybe I didn't pay enough attention to the cut while looking in the mirror but they make my already stumpy legs look even more stumpy but somehow I can deal, they just aren't as worn enough as my black boots. Overall, a wonderful buy I think, plus I can wear them in the summer with loads of cute summer dresses!




The Works, 2 Writing Sets £1.99, 2 Notebooks £2.99 and a 5 year journal that I got for my Birthday.

Yay, I was so excited when I saw how cheap the stationary was at The Works in Ashford. Me and my best friend Rachel have been exchanging letters a lot so I figured that these Writing Sets would get some use out of. So far, I've written only one letter to my boyfriend for Valentine's Day and I haven't gotten round to writing to Rachel yet, priority's clearly aren't in place yet. Each set have beautifully decorated backgrounds that relate to their beautiful front covers. I have been so obsessed with Paris recently it's an obsession that I need to have control of.
The notebooks underneath were an awesome find like I said, I love writing so these will definitely be used. 
My 5 year journal was a gift I received from my other best friend Jo she literally knows me so well I won't be able to tell you much about it seeing as it was a gift but I can tell you that it was from Waterstone's. All you do is write down the year under the day that you're on and you're done! It is such an awesome concept, I can't wait to look back on it in the next few years, I love how you can be picky on which memory you write down also so you don't have to go too into detail about all the boring parts of your day.




Plus, the doodles and art in this journal is amazing! 




Here are a bundle of things that I got over the past few months. So let me talk you through them :)




Polka-dot Bow £4.99 from Claire's Accessories
I have been in love with wearing bows in my hair for so long now and when I laid my eyes on this, I fell in love. I instantly began creating Valentine's Day looks to go with this bow! Bows just remind me of Macbarbie07 - check out her Youtube, so when I wear it I feel like I'm channeling her and this makes me happy.




Zig-Zag Shirt £3 from Moda at Asda


I got this in the sale at Asda, I picked up so many clothes from that rail as they were all under £5.00! I sometimes enjoy shopping at big supermarket stores simply because their fashion is actually on trend and more often cheaper. This shirt sits really well on my frame and a little off the shoulder which is a style that I love it's also one that I don't really have to tuck into my skirt (I almost always only wear skirts) so that's a bonus, less frumpiness for me!




White Floral Top £4 Moda at Asda


I'm finally getting a tad braver on wearing white, I used to steer clear from white seeing as I just love to attract stains, so far so good. I love the flowy material on the arms, it, to me is very boho and liberating and also very comfy. I also adore the floral (althought not quite clear) pattern on the front and the fact that the extra flowy material is underneath means I don't need to layer it any clothing underneath!




White and Gold Statement Necklace £1.00 from Claire's Accessories


A couple of days ago I thought that I was getting a little old to shop at Claire's Accessories but I went in there and fell in love with their jewellery all over again so you can imagine my excitement when I found out that this necklace was in the sale for £1.00. I freaked out for a while and then bought it within a heartbeat. The cluster of crystal-like stones look gorgeous with any outfit I'm so excited to pair it with dresses.




Macadamia Oil and Argan Oil Foot Pack £1.00 each from Poundland


I can't say much about these products other than the fact that if they are amazing I will definitely recommend heading out to your local poundland and stocking up. I haven't really, without sounding too disgusting, looked after my feet or pampered my feet other than painting my toenails and moisturising them so I will definitely keep you guys posted!




Paper Towns by John Green - £3.50 from Sainsbury's
I can't believe I still haven't read The Fault in Our Stars, it's too late to turn away from this book now though I've already started it and it's pretty good! I literally can't wait for the ending. I'll post the blurb right here:

" Quentin Jacobson has always loved Margo from afar. So when she climbs through his window to summon him on an all-night road trip of revenge he cannot help but follow. But the next morning, Q turns up at school and Margo doesn't. She's left clues to her disappearance, like a trail of breadcrumbs for Q to follow. 
And everything leads to one unavoidable question:
Who is the real Mardo?"




Lauren Conrad - Sugar and Spice - £1.00 from Poundland


I have been a huge fan of The Hills so when I found out Lauren Conrad came out with a book I was so excited to read them however I have no idea why I started on what I think is the third book. Either way, the way Lauren Conrad writes is awful and I feel bad for saying that because she is one of my favourite celebrities but honestly it was such hard work getting through this book it got to the point where the only thing keeping me going was the fact I could finish it and move on to another book. The storyline is incredibly dull, the way it was written is dull so that's what I'm going to leave it at.




Pitch Perfect DVD - £5.00 from Asda

Please tell me you've watched this genius, acapella-singing sensation of a movie because if not I will mail one to you.
Just kidding.
I have watched this film 10 times since my mum bought it for me, it's getting to the point where I'm close to memorising the whole movie word for word. If you haven't ever watched it it's pretty much about a girl called Beca (Kendrick) who gets to college, she starts off as an anti-social and demure character but as she auditions to be in an acapella group called the Barden Bellas where she makes life-long friends and also there's a love interest that she has in rival acapella boy group the Treble makers. With enough puns and comedy to make up for all the times you've ever been sad I would definitely recommend an hour and a half of this melodic hilarity!




Sass and Belle - £2.99

Last but not least, I got this cute sign a store in Brighton! I think it's beautiful and I especially fell in love with the saying and also anything that is to do with travelling so putting two together in I had to buy it and now it sits proudly in my room above my bed and makes me want to go somewhere far away from here :)

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, I have a feeling it's going to be a long one so I will end it here, 
God bless,
All my love,
