Save your wishes, they won't help you, and save your kisses, they're unwanted

The new Topshop collection looks amazing, doesn't it? I can't wait until some more of it is added to the website, sad as that sounds! Until then I've been thinking about buying this American Apparel dress, but I was just wondering if any of you guys have it ? I'm pretty sure I'm getting the pocket skirt for my birthday in a few weeks too, which is rather goood. You may have noticed I've added a few more links recently, Aindrea and Winnie, they both have amazing blogs which you should really check out. If you want to link with me then please just ask! Oh and if you're visiting this blog then thankyou, and please leave comments, I'd love to get a few more (: Sorry for the sort of mixed up post, but here's some recent weheartit lovelyness. Enjoy! x

You go back to her, and I'll go back to black

The very first Coco Avant Chanel trailer has now been released! I couldn't work out how to get it to show on here, but incase you haven't seen it yet, it's here. I'm so excited!
PS. There will be more posts next week, at least two or three. I promise!

If you love me, won't you let me know?

I'm sorry I haven't posted in so long, a week almost. I've had a pretty busy week in terms of schoolwork but otherwise it's been alright... I'll just say things are starting to come together now; I'm very, very happy.

I finished 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' by Stephen Chbosky, this week. It's easily the best book I've read in a while, although the main character reminded me of myself so much it was creeepy! What are your favourite books? I'm onto reading Barack Obama's autobiography now, and I really want to read some more 'classics', so The Great Gatsby and The Catcher In the Rye are next on my list - wish me luck! Haha I must sound like such a geek. Prose before hoes guys!

Anyway that's about it for this post, I'm sorry for the erm, lack of content - I only really posted because I felt guilty for not blogging all week up until now! I promise there will be more (and hopefully more interesting!) posts soon, if not this weekend. What are you all up to?

Oh and I loved this picture, so cute (: Happy weekend! x

1, 2, 3, 4, tell me that you love me more

What have you been up to this weekend ? Remarkably for me I've done rather a lot. Yesterday I had extra Spanish exam prep in the morning, then in the afternoon I went into Plymouth for a little bit with one of my best friends, Fiona. I didn't buy an awful lot as I went in mainly to buy a mothers day present, and I'm trying not to buy any clothes until at least Easter which so far has proven to be very dificult! Saying that, my birthday is in just over a month, so I managed to have a good look around Topshop, and I've now got a few things to start off my wishlist. I LOVE this one dress from the website.

Also on friday I picked up a copy of Teen Vogue and I have to say this month the editorials were amazing. I know they always are, but the main editorial was quite simply beautiful. I loved the 'enchanted solider' one too, it was all military-inspired but with some florals as well, basically everything I am obsessed with right now! I tried to recreate this one look so maybe I'll post that and the editorial photos next week, if anyone's interested? Otherwise here are some of my favourite shots from the first one... and

Those teenage hopes, arrive at your door.

Haven't got an awful lot to say for myself today, but I thought I'd share some pictures with you guys. They're of me and Rosie out enjoying the sunshine last night, it was loverly (:

PS. I've just listened to the Sia album 'Colour the Small One' all the way through a few times via, it's amazing. If you haven't listened to it before, you should. What music are you into atm? x

photos:me, well my sister.

All the while I was dreaming of revelry

What have you all been up to this weekend? I wasn't very well most of the time, but I thought I should show you the dress I bought whilst on my (very quick!) shopping trip yesterday. It's from topshop and is in this amazing floral pattern, sort of like scribbles, with a zip going up the front. Oh and I'm wearing it with jeans because it is very, very short. Even on me, and I am quite a midget! I'm sorry about the pictures, I hate 'mirror pictures' but I was feeling pretty ill so I'm hoping that counts as an excuse for the unoriginality!?

Dress - Topshop, T-shirt (underneath) - Primark, Jeans - Zara, Necklace - H&M.

I've just realised this is my tenth post. Doesn't sound like a lot, but I'm pretty pleased with that seeing as I thought my first would be my last! I refound Zoe's blog, so I think I'll post my 'award' tomorrow, or sometime within the next few days. Also I've been thinking about a few (hopefully!) more interesting posts I'll be doing sometime soon... how incredibly exciting. Just curb your enthusiasm. Anyways better be off now, I have quite a bit on at school tomorrow, including a nice telling off probably. Now thats something to look forward to. Hope you all have a nice week x

Breaking my back, just to know your name

I just watched Amelie, aka one of my favourite films, ever. You've probably all seen it already, so I won't post about that, but seeing Audrey Tautou reminded me of some pictures I've had on my computer for a while now. They're stills from her newest film, Coco avant Chanel, which (you got it!) is a biopic of Coco Chanel. I know it's all set to come out in France next month, but I haven't heard anything about it in the UK. I really hope that doesn't mean it won't be released at all! What are your favourite films, and are there any you're currently looking forward to?

photos:some random film website?

Also I had something else to share with you, as the other day I received an award from Zoe (: For some reason I can't get to her blog to look at it, to post it on here, but if you're reading this then muchos gracias! I will send out mine soonish, or in fact whenever blogspot decides to work again. Finally, if any of you were wondering then I'm now on Bloglovin'. The link over on the right should work. Now better go, I still have two pages of art to do for tomorrow!

I can sleep forever these days, 'cause in my dreams, I see you again

Three. Four. things.
  1. Dan is now on blogspot... (I don't think he knows I've written this... yet).
  2. Slumdog Millionaire was AMAZING! I went to the little cinema this time instead of the big out-of-town one (I actually preferred it) and went to Lorenzo's for nachos. Basically, I had a really good time.
  3. When I've finished this cup of coffee, I think I'm going swimming with Fiona, and then later I'm off to Rosie's again - so probably more pictures to come soon!
  4. I want a polaroid camera, just so I can stick them up like this on my wall.

Oh hurricane, what you gonna' do to us this time?

What are you all doing this weekend ? I've not really been up to much today, just trying to get through a heap of schoolwork, tidying my room, and drinking tea really. However I am going to see Slumdog Millionaire tonight, am really rather excited (:

And I thought I'd tell you, one of my best friends, Rosie, has now got a blog, you really should have a look...

I thought this picture was very, very cute. i think.

PS. I have just realised this blog has had just over one hundred hits now, I'm really happy with that as it's only been what? Two weeks? Oh and I finally got round to getting a profile picture...

Walking on a dream

I've been round to Rosie's tonight, she had a new camera and so we took loads of pictures! So here is my first outfit post, and (ahh!) an actual picture of me! Rosie edited it but I have to say my hair isn't really that ginger in real life!

Vest (underneath) - Jack Wills, Top - Illustrated People for Topshop, Jeans - H&M, Bracelets - Primark. I also had my sort-of converse on but for now you can see my beautiful spotty socks!

The sun will rise, even if you don't happen to be there

AOnce again sorry I am such a terrible blogger, haven't posted in almost a week now. I officially HATE maths exams! Anyway I was just going to ask what you thought of this, i.e. what I've been looking at whilst I should have been revising! For £25, I thought it was pretty cute! I wasn't sure if I could get a picture, so here's a link...

Finally here's another slice of Alexa Chung goodness for you, and just incase I haven't told you before... I LOVE GRIMMY!
