It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Yesterday I fully immersed myself into all things festive and travelled up to  Birmingham for their annual Christmas market. It was the first time I've ever been to a Christmas market (or Birmingham) and I would definitely go again!

Despite not being able to feel my feet - either due to the freezing temperature or sudden on set diabetes through the sheer amount of sugar and gingerbread everywhere - I had a fantastic time. There were over a 100 stalls full of tiny trinkets, German beer and well some tat.

I managed to get my sister a cute dinosaur necklace for Christmas, because nothing says Christmas like an extinct animal?! I also popped into Selfridges and a few other shops to try and keep in the warm!

What hidden treasures have you found at a Christmas market?

Hope you've all had a fantastic weekend!

What I Want Wednesday

1. stay at home club  t-shirt 
    features a girl holding a group of cats, need I say more?

2.  Zara monochrome cut away boots

3. Fab I like cats t-shirt

4.  Urban Outfitters tapestry top

5.Topshop fairground pencil skirt

6. Boohoo rock paper scissors necklace 

So I created a What I Want Wednesday in the same vain as the others, with pictures and a different typography, but since I've been away the blogger format has changed and I can no longer upload word documents which is where I created most of my posts. Hopefully I can work out how to upload screen shots for next week, do you have any ideas?

I know, I'm sorry...

So after my last (and slightly pretentious) post about fully living life and committing to my blog I haven't posted in quiet a few months, quiet awkward! Just to let you know I will be posting more (seriously!) and I have now created a wattpad account, so if you enjoyed this mediocre writing and are dying for more you now can!

Soak it in The Sun and Make a Groovy Lemon Pie

A lot of things have happened since my last post, which is to be expected as my last post was a few months ago (sorry!)
   1.  I finished college and collected my results; 2 C’s and a double distinction* a result my Nan described as ‘well, at least it’s something’ the grades were in those very marketable and essential subjects of; performing arts, media and English Lit and Lang.   
    2.    Achieved the impossible and bought a dress and a necklace from Topshop for under £10?!
3          Bought the new vaccines and two door cinema club albums (both very good)  
4    In April my aunt was diagnosed with lung cancer, she was 38 and had never smoked. The cancer then spread to her lungs, she was given chemo but was told it would never go. Later she was given a year to 18 months, which meant she would be able to celebrate her birthday and Christmas with her family one last time, although that thought made the whole family angry/upset/scared she was positive and happy ‘hey, it’s not like it’s a couple of months is it’ she smiled. A couple of weeks later the cancer spread again and continued to invaide her body eventually infecting her bones and spinal cord the year to 18 months changed to  6 weeks. She then started to get mind-numbing headaches, the doctors had said it had spread, again, to the lining of the brain, 6 weeks was turned into two. She died on the 17th August. My Nan (her mum) my uncle (her husband) my cousins (her son’s) and my mum (her sister) were obviously devastated and annoyed and sick.
Her life has made me think about my own, I found out she went to festivals regularly, had paraglided, base jumped, white water rafted, abseiled, travelled to; Thailand, New York, Cuba, and a bunch of other countries, got married in an ice hotel in Sweden. Rocked an orange fur coat and Dr Martens in the 90’s. Walked down the Uni halls in just her towel (she had just showed and her future husband noticed her.) she had an absolutely fantastic life which I can only hope to replicate and has made me realise how unpredictable life is and to not waste days or be too scared to do something. I have been incredibly shy my whole life and I do not want to waste any more of it being scared/lonely/depressed because I was frightened of the consequences that would come if I done anything. Now I’m not going to worry or count calories or stand still at a party because I can’t dance. I’m going to let go and be free and happy (sorry for the cheese!) and, hopefully, blog more!

Year 3000

Top and Necklace: Topshop (Sale)
Velvet Leggings: New Look
Shoes: Primark

Top and Necklace: Topshop (Sale)
Shorts: Ragged Priest 

finally had a chance to shoot today! its been way too long, but now that I'm back on track with coursework the posts should be more regular.  

both of the tops and necklace were bought yesterday in Topshops extended sale, yay. the first one looks a lot more 'pinky' in real life as does my hair! I bought a can of spray on hair colour this morning to try out, the can said not to apply to bleached hair (whoops) and to spray 30 cm away (I had rubbish aim though and ended up being 2cm away in order to get a direct hit) the sprays good but runs out very quickly.

I also bought my first lipstick the other day (I've lead a sheltered life!) and bought another two day which I will blog about this week. 

What have you been up to since I've been away? Let me know in the comments!
