A moment, a love, a dream, aloud

Can't believe how long it's been since I last blogged, so sorry! Since then so many good things have happened though...
  • I turned sixteen
  • I went to a few amazing parties
  • I sat the first of my exams
  • I finished art forever
  • and met some beautiful people!
That's all from me for now, but I'll try and be back when I can (:

Goodbye England

ChloĆ« Sevigny for Harper's Bazaar Russia, April 2010. She's gorgeous isn't she? I love the sepia shots so much! I'm a bit obsessed with all things to do with Alice in Wonderland at the moment too♥

Personally I found the film a little disappointing after all the hype, was kind of hoping it would be weirder! What did you all think? x

We are all made of air

Topshop playsuit and bag, anyone want to buy me an early birthday present?

Today was the last day of term for me, no more school for two and a half weeks! I'm so happy right now, can't wait for this holiday, and this summer, I'm going to Americaaaaa! x

Winter winds litter London with lonely hearts

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, these last few weeks have been horrid.

I just ordered her new album, can't wait to listen to it♥

Do you ever feel like you've broken someone's heart

I had a pretty good weekend really, you? I spent Friday night with the boyfriend, saw basically all my family on Sunday and went shopping on Saturday, got the prettiest lace dress and actual brogues in Primark. Yes, Primark! This is what I wore, one of my many dresses from Thailand♥ The shopping there was amazing, I spotted lots of the same trends we have here at the moment - florals, lace, denim, even jeggings! - but everything is ten times cuter! Have a good week! x

dress: thailand, cardigan: my mother's wardrobe, black tights, converse.

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

Thailand was amazing and beautiful, I wish I could go back :'(

Counting the days on her fingers

I really can't believe I am off to Thailand tomorrow! I probably won't be able to post for a while so here is a little list of things...

A film I watched recently

is Le Fils de l'epicier (The Grocers Son). Sadly I couldn't find very many stills online but it is honestly one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen. The main character is gorgeous too

An album I've listened to recently

is Two Suns by Bat for Lashes. Well actually I bought it a while ago, and I just haven't got around to posting it, but it is amazing. I really want to get her debut when I come back, that's meant to be even better.

A photo I took recently

on the train. If I'm honest I really haven't taken enough pictures recently but I found this earlier when clearing my camera. It was taken whilst on the train back from my boyfriend's house last weekend (hence the grubbiness), which is always a sad journey, but that bit there is really beautiful.

A book I'm reading

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. Even though I'm only half way through and probably too young to understand it properly, I can honestly say that irregardless of its storyline, it's the most beautifully written book I've ever read.

And finally

a pretty dress because this post wouldn't be complete without one aha! You can get this in three colours, but I think the blue's my favourite, I really want to get it when I get home! Oh and it's from Topshop, obviously!

That's all from me for a while, be back in two weeks! x

This fear's got a hold on me

Recently I have received a few tags, the first from the lovely Holly at Fawned and the second an award from Phoebe at Cross Your Fingers. Thank you so much to both of you! They both have beautiful blogs, you should have a look! I think I am required to list some things, but to be honest I don't really have much to say other than the fact I'm going to Thailand in one week! Have some pretty pictures instead (:

Most of these are just old ones that have been on my memory stick for ages so I'm sorry I don't know where they're from. Now I'm going to tag Emma, Lottie and Becca! x

P.S. Both Aindrea at Fashionista du Jour and Hannah at London Rose are holding competitions at the moment, enter and you could win a £25 or £50 Topshop voucher!

What are you doing Sunday baby?

I just saw this video on nmeTV and had to post it, I love Lightspeed Champion so much! I saw him (with Alexa Chung actually...) at T4 on the Beach two years ago and have loved him ever since. Just look at those hats! I guess this song is quite different from his older stuff, much more varied in terms of instruments and just generally poppier but I'm still quite excited about his new album. It's on my list of pre-orders now, along with Marina and the Diamonds, Los Campesinos! and Laura Marling

Anyways, before I pop off to bed I just wanted to let you know after I wrote my last post, the lovely people at sent me a £40 Topshop giftcard! Now I just need to decide what to spend it on, there's been so much lovely spring stock in recently no? I am going into Plymouth on Saturday though so I'm pretty sure I'll have spent it by then haha! Have a lovely rest of week everyone! x

Nothing you can say that can't be sung

How many of you use discount codes when shopping? Vouchercodes has great online codes for stores like ASOS, MyWardrobe, and Liberty, as well as printable vouchers for restaurants like Pizza Express, so you can afford to shop and eat out! At the moment they are offering an amazing 30% off at Gap, as well as other discounts at All Saints and Oasis.The best thing is that the site is completely free and really easy to use - what could be simpler?
I've got a lot of things to look forward to this year (like Thailand and America!) but that also means I'll be needing to save lots of money when updating my wardrobe. Here are my top five picks for 2010, all under £40.
Lace has already proven to be big this winter, and I predict the trend will continue this spring, in lighter, softer shades of pink and cream. I love this dress so much, it's perfectly girly and looks just like Alexa's!
Skater dresses + florals = that's going to be a winner right? I saw someone wearing this dress on lookbook, then looked it up to find it was only £25, so I think it's my favourite I've seen yet!

I've always been a fan of florals and I think these leggings would look great with everything, from bright t-shirts and blazers to simple black bodycon, so I think they're pretty good for £20! Only problem is which colour to choose?
Breton tops are a great basic to have in your wardrobe and are always chic, if you haven't got one already I suggest you move this to top of your list!
Tights are probably the easiest way to update your look and these are available in loads of crazy cool designs elsewhere on the internet as well, all at a bargain price. Plus THEY'RE BY HENRY HOLLAND!
I hope you enjoyed this post and visit the voucher codes website! x
