I know you can't get enough of my sound


My brother is officially the best photographer I've ever met. He doesn't even have to try. To look at him the the biggest chav you can imagine, but theres something magic happens when he gets a camera in his hands.

Monday Summary


Evenin' Ladies..

I'm pretty much dying today, I've got tonsillitis and I'm in a pretty bad way but wanted to post my summary none the less. I've got to take some time off work and possibly have my tonsils out which is a grim prospect. Its been two weeks since Adam broke up with me, I'm ok about it though, yeah its strange and sad but it had been a long time coming. I just wanted to thank you all for being so lovely and supportive through the process, I feel so lucky to have so much love and support thanks to my blog.

I've spent the last two weeks getting back to me and having some fun (until the imminent tonsillitis struck) I've been going out drinking lots, dancing lots and reconnecting with some amazing friends. I've also lost quite a lot of weight since the split, its not been a conscious effort, although I'm mentally ok I think physically I'm still a bit all over the place. What they say about the break up diet is true! Hopefully I'll get back to normal soon but at the moment my appetite comes and goes.

Payday can't come a day too soon, Thursday is when my wage should go into my bank, I'm absolutely broke at the moment - as in literally I have about £2.47 to my actual name. I hate being skint, I'm going to buy myself these when I get paid.

I really havn't had the opportunity to take many photos over the last couple of weeks so apologies for that, I need to start taking my camera out with me again! I've got a couple of things I want to blog about this week so I'll utilise my days off work and blog from my sick bed. Todays soundtrack is one of my favourite songs of the minute, go download it from itunes its Birdy with a cover of Bon Iver's Skinny Love.

Also Happy 21st Birthday to my beautiful friend Zoe!

Monday Summary


Sorry for the lack of blogposts guys. I'm going through some pretty heavy personal shizzle at the moment so my posting might be a little bit sporadic. Here's my last face of the night from this weekend sorry for the rubbish iphone pic but I feel weird if I dont include a photo! xx

River Island Jeans Swap



Last week I was invited to an event held by River Island in Liverpool. Unfortunately I couldn't make it but I still really want to blog about it because I think its awesome. The event in question was the River Island Jeans Swap, and it was basically where you could go along to the River Island store in Liverpool and swap your old jeans for a pair of new ones, and the old pair were donated to charity!






Over 150 people went along to the event including bloggers and locals. I did tweet a few tweets encouraging people to go along too, as literally everyone who was willing to drop their jeans in the street walked away wearing a brand new pair of jeans. The campaign was in celebration of River Island's Denim Week, but most importantly the old jeans would be donated to Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. 112 items in total were donated which I think is brilliant. Just good clean fun, and all for a good cause. Win. I really wish I could have made it, and if theres ever another event up north (like in Leeds for example hint hint) I'll be there with bells on!


Did any of you go along to the Jeans Swap?

Sugar Sugar


I bought this wonderful hand crocheted cardigan from Topshop recently. I saw it and instantly loved it, although I do appreciate that this is either a love it or hate it garment. It is basically a doily in the form of a cardigan, but I genuinely love it. I also think its overpriced for what it is too, which shows even more how much I'm in love with it. I just feel really free spirited when I wear it as silly as that sounds, and I can't wait to wear it over a summer dress. Karen tells me you can get one very similar from Primark for less than half the price of this one, so if you like it try there first.

Monday Summary - Birthday Girl


Lots of photos for you lovelies today. I had an amazing birthday weekend. Wicked was just out of this world, I absolutely loved it. I filled up during Defying Gravity. That never happens. How does she sing like that?? London was just fabulous as always and I got some lovely birthday presents.


I sold my Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Speedy and used the money from that combined with my birthday money to buy myself a new bag! I opted for the Miu Miu Vitello Lux or as its also known the "Bow Bag" Its amazing. Like UH-MAZE-ING. I'll do a separate post with better pictures of the bag this week. A bag like that deserves a post all of its own haha!


I got some gorgeous rings from my Mum & Dad and Adams Brother and Girlfriend. Mum & Dad bought me the Silver one with the Black Spinel Stone and Gareth and Nicola bought me the dark blue stone ring from Topshop.


Karen & Gaz contributed to my bag and also bought me this adorable bracelet and strawberry necklace. LOVE.

We stayed at the Thistle in Victoria which was 5 minutes away from the theatre. Although the room wasn't to our taste it was lovely and spacious, the staff were friendly and the breakfast was delicious. We thought it was amazing when we got there that our room was the "John Peel Suite" This just happens to be my brothers name, how much of a coincidence is that? And no they didn't know Peel was my last ame because we booked it under Adams name. Lots of pics from London for you now.
















Then once I got home my family had got me possibly the best cake ever! A Belle from Beauty and the Beast Cake! What 23 year old doesn't love a Disney cake? The only way this could have been topped is if it was Cinderella haha!

Then it was out for (the worlds spiciest) curry with my friends. I also ended up getting cut by a spoon (dont ask) and then coming home and staying up drinking gin until 1am. Not big and not clever. All in all an absolutely wonderful weekend. Thank you for all of your lovely birthday wishes! xxx
