Where I went...

Top - vintage
Skirt - Zara

Well, it has been an awful long time since i posted and for that I apologise! However i am not going to spend hours gushing as I know some people find that annoying and Downton Abbey starts in a minute! Anyway this is when i went to see the Fratellis comeback tour a couple of weeks back with my friend! I used to be obsessed with The Fratellis when i was younger and was disappointed when they faded out of the music scene! However now they are back and hopefully here to stay!

It was a brilliant night and i'm sure i must of annoyed a few of the people standing around me while I wailed along to pretty much every song but hey-ho! I always struggle with what to wear for gigs but i decided this was suitable in the end, not too warm, not to revealing, just right!

Anyway i'm going to turn ITV on! See 'ya soon!

(I apologise for my lovely hall way and even a glimpse of the toilet that you get in these pictures!)

This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Top - Urban Outfitters
Shorts - Urban Outfitters
Shoes - White Stuff
Sunglasses - Urban Outfitters
Earrings - Topshop 

So finally, the last two days before I go back to school, the sun has decided to grace us with his/her presence. How thoughtful of it! Don't get me wrong, I am pleased at the short opportunity to top up my quickly fading Mallorcan tan; it's just a shame it couldn't of come out perhaps a little faster! It seems to be the same every year; july and August are mainly cool(ish) and rainy, excluding the odd couple of hot days, and September, the time we no longer get to enjoy it, is practically Mediterranean! Oh well, what can you do?

This is a post of what I'm wearing today. It's not exactly a ground breaking outfit granted but I think it has a certain retro charm! In the bottoms department I was rather stuck between wearing something that would compliment my top, and also something that would keep me cool enough in the boiling September sunshine. Denim shorts are a staple in my summer wardrobe, I have about four pairs of them. These ones are different to my others however, because I feel they have a slightly more retro feel to them with the pocket detail, the brighter hue of blue and the high waist.
 I really like this top, it's so pretty and I am a complete sucker for lace and collars so this was the perfect combination! Plus, it was a bargain at a mere £10 in the Urban Outfitters sale! I didn't wear this to anywhere in particular, just for a mooch about my village to run errands and for a sit in the garden with a glass of fresh orange juice. All in all it's been a fairly relaxing day sorting things out. 

Has anyone being up to anything nice? Let me know I the comments if you like, I'd love to hear from you!

P.S - Maia is also taking advantage of the sun, bathing in the light coming through the window the cutie!

Look what I did

Hello there!
Here is the little addition I made to my bedroom the other day in an act of boredom. I've been collecting various magazine cutouts and little post cards from places I've been and things I have done for quite a while now! My problem was that I couldn't decide how to display them best in my room. I was just having a lazy day sat eating cherry bakewells and reading a few blogs when I came across a picture on one of the blogs (sadly i can't remember which blog it was) with pictures hung on a sort of washing line across a wall. So I decided to get busy and carefully align my collection of cuttings and memories along a piece of string. I would have preferred to use wooden pegs but I had to make do with what I had in the house, but next time I go out i'll try and get some! Anyway, it's probably not the best creation in the world but I like it and it fits with the rest of my room, homemade bunting and all!

Late Latitude

Beautiful art and pretty coloured sheep! It felt like a little fairytale kingdom!

The Crooks. A really good small band- definitely worth a listen to their music.

So much mud!

My friend Caroline looking stunning as per.

Laura Marling- She has the most beautiful voice in the world!

Me looking a little startled with Jamie Laing- it's fair to say I have abit of an obsession!

What I wore on the last day. My hair looks particularly pretty after having it washed and styled at the on site salon!

This is the salon, it was pretty amazing!

Sneaky shot of caroline's beautiful shirt!

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros


Gorgeous handmade bunting

Ben Howard. He is the personifacation of cute!

Me and Caroline ending the weekend on a high

These are just a few pictures taken at Latitude festival which I went to with my friend Caroline (as seen in several of the above photos). It was an amazing weekend full of fashion and amzing music! My favourite act was definitely Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros; so energetic and such feel good music! Sorry these are so late as the festival was about three weeks ago but I have just got back from a two week holiday to Mallorca so I've been reasonably busy!

 I went for one week with my choir and we performed several concerts at different venues in Mallorca and then my family met me out there for a week so all in all I've had a pretty amazing two weeks. Helped by the fact that i spotted and walked within a metre of Noel Gallagher in one of the smallest villages in Mallorca. I was considering asking for a picture but decided not to disturb him as he was at the time pushing his baby in a pram up a rather steep hill! The spot alone kept me on a high for the rest of the holiday anyway!
Im sure by now you've had enough of my ramblings so I'll leave it there.
I've had an amazing holiday so far and hopefully it will keep getting better!

Mud and fashion from Latitude

Top - Zara
Shorts - Topshop
Necklace - Topshop
Wellies - Kurt Geiger
Socks - Jack Wills
Earrings - Topshop

Just a quick outfit post from one of the days at Latitude festival, which I went to last weekend with my friend Caroline. It was absolutely amazing; I had such a good time. I have more pictures from the festival to come but I thought I’d keep this an outfit post. I got these mint leather shorts in the Topshop sale! I love them, they are so cool and the colour is lovely, plus they were half price at £15 and I do love a bargain! I'm trying to refrain from sounding pretentious here but I love the contrast in colours and fabrics between the top and shorts! As you can see I have my wellies on; they don't look too bad here but there was some serious mud all weekend. I don’t think I took my wellies off at all apart from inside my tent! Luckily though it only really rained on the night times though and it was quite warm in the day so I didn’t let the mud put me off baring abit of leg!

As you can see in the second picture I have a blue feather hair extension. There was an onsite hair salon doing various things including putting in lovely feather extensions. Me and Caroline both had one put in and I decided on this pretty blue one. I love it and the best bit is that they are attached with a special bead and stay in for 8 weeks and can be washed and styled just like normal hair so it's so easy to maintain!

Anyway as usual I’m rambling so i'll leave it there. I promise I’ll upload more soon as I’m on holiday now from school for 6 weeks!

My week in pictures

Friend's Birthday meal <3 Color Bug experiment <3 Homemade cookies <3 Dance Show <3 Minty Lace <3 Sister is prom queen at leavers prom <3 Maia <3 All the girls  at Grace's meal

Just a few pictures from my week, some instagram, some not! I'm going out in a couple of hours to my village's annual event 'Cottingham Day'! It's not exactly the most exciting event in my social calender but it is such a beautiful day and i need to embrace all the sun i can get! I hope the weather stays lovely for when i go to Latitude next week! Later on today i'm going round to my friends and we are going to be brave and watch The Woman in Black- i havent seen it yet. Apparently it's not that scarey but i'm a complete wimp when it comes to scarey films so it is brave of me! Hopefully the popcorn will help me through it! I have a feeling today is going to be a day of pigging-out which isn't very good when i have Mallorca in 20 days! Oh well..! As you can see from the picture my beautiful sister won the title of prom queen at her year 13 prom, she also won ' Most likely to marry a member of the royal family' which if youy knew her you would find quite amusing! Although i'm happy for her it is another sign that she is packing her bags and leaving me after the summer to go to uni in Bristol which  is a good six hour drive from where we live. It is going to be very strange from being the youngest of three siblings to being an only child as my brother is at uni too. It will be hard for me to see her go, but i guess i'll just have to make the most of the time we have together this summer!
Anyway that's it for me today! Is anyone else doing anything nice today/ this summer?
P.S - doesn't Maia look cute!?
