Sophie + Alice + Chynna

Hello, hello, hello! So today i've just been chillin with my best girls Alice and Chynna! Sorry i haven't done an outfit post, but i will probably do one tomorrow if i get time! 
I took these pictures with my camera on an art setting, my camera is the olympus pen epl-1... AND I LOVE IT!

Also, i did try to ombre my hair, but it didn't work. so i was thinking.. maybe i should just go all blonde? i'm not sure wether to or not, probably not bleach blonde but a kindof goldy blonde. What do you think? Need your opinions!!

Oh.MY! i haven't posted in so long! i have missed you all. I'm not going to go on about why i haven't been posting because.. to put it bluntly i just really couldn't be arsed.

I haven't been posting on lookbook either, but here's my latest look! : 

Top: Topshop
Jeans: Topshop
^crazy times in Topshop

I think this is going to be my.. Friday outfit for Latitude (music festival) 

I have completely changed my style, i used to love vintage, nudes, florals etc. Now i wear more sporty/boyish/colorful stuff!
My recent purchases: 

River Island
Bright Stripe Ditsy Trim Sleeveless Shirt

Wild Child Print Vest

Grey Aztec Beaded Print Crop Fringed Hem Vest

MOTO Blue Skinny Seven Eighths Jeans

Topshop (they look so bright!)

I know loads of the stuff is from Topshop but... oh i don't really have an excuse, i guess i just love the feeling of going in their and not having to search around for ages to find something really nice!

Sorry for not posting very much, i'm definitely going to try and keep up to date with posting and i will do lots of outfit posts this week! 

P.S i don't know why there is a massive gap below this... Blogger can be so stubborn! But i would love for you to take the time to scroll down and comment!

-Oh my, 2 whole weeks without posting! it feels like such a long time. Sorry that i haven't been posting, so much work to do! But i'm going to get back into the routine of posting often! 

I got a new cropped denim jacket from Topshop the other day, £32. I love it. 
Here's a few outfits that go nicely with it:

A nice simple floral skirt, with a plain top underneath.

A playsuit, i'm not too sure about this one though, it looks better without the belt!

A summery floral dress! 

I wore this outfit out yesterday with patterned black tights and brogues. 

Jumpsuit! i like this one, i should have taken a full length shot. This looks nice with little brown boots and a hat! 
(i was then pinning my hair up) I'm wearing this outfit right now, it makes me feel like a Londoner, i don't know why! it's simple but looks quite cool. Just some patterned Hareems and a bold top. 

This Maybeline Liquid eyeliner is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. My dad got it for me (lol) and i was amazed! he never buys me makeup!

Hope you are all good! looking forward to the holiday! Thankyou for all following and commenting, sorry for the lack of posting.

Grandma, please may i borrow your cardigan?

Blouse: Urban Outfitters
Jeans: H&M
Cardigan: Charity shop
Boots: Office
Hat: Topshop

-I'm sorry for not posting this week! I've just been concentrating on school work, and getting lots of Art coursework done. This is what i wore to work today, quite a simple outfit. I'm starting to feel the need to go shopping and buy more clothes, but i want to sell some of my old clothes which i don't really wear first.

-The sun has been shining today, which was so nice! i can't wait until summer! I got my latitude ticket (festival) the other night, i'm so excited! it's going to be amazing. The lineup isn't as good as last year, but i'm looking forward to seeing Paolo Nutini, Suede, The vaccines, Foals, Everything everything, Paloma faith and more! 

My affordable makeup bag:

-I never really used to wear that much makeup, but recently i have started to experiment more. This is basically all the makeup i wear on a daily basis. And it's all fairly cheap (apart from the odd benefit product) 

-The other day i bought the new MaxFactor smoky eye effect eyeshadow, and i must say that it is AMAZING! So easy to use, and the effect is great! Also i got the eye roll-on with the concealer, which also works like magic!

-I am definitely going to start posting regularly again, just this week has been so busy. I hope you are all good! thank you all for following! i now have 140 followers which is amazing, i love you all!

only, yesterday was the time of our lives

Hat: Topshop
Dress/Top: Miss Selfridge
Trousers: River Island
Loafers: River Island

-I got this bag at a CarBoot Sale earlier for £2. I'm not sure if it's a real Dior, at first i didn't think it was. But after looking more closely, the details are so good. So even if it is a fake, it's a good one! 
-I've been getting quite bored of my hair recently, so on Saturday when i went to the hair dressers i thought 'oh well, CUT IT ALL OFF' and this is how it turned out! i love it. Now i just really want to ombre it, although that may look too similar to Alexa Chungs hair! 

-My room is finally finished! I LOVE IT! Thankyou mum and dad ♥!

GIVEAWAY!- Thankyou to all those who entered! I put all the names who entered into my hat, and asked my friend to pick one out... 
And congratulations The Paper Heart Girl !!!! I shall be sending you the top very soon!
My next Give-away will happen when i reach 200 followers!

It's time for my first give-away, as i have finally reached 100 followers! 

(i know it looks a bit scruffy in the picture, i wanted to quickly do it before it got dark, but i have made it neater now so don't worry)

-So this is what's up-for-grabs in my give-away. It's a vintage velvet top, also i have sewn on a vintage collar, but you can easily take off the collar if you don't like it.

I have chosen to give-away this top because i think it's very much what my style is all about, very vintage. 

To enter please: 
1) Follow me if you are not already
2) Leave a comment with your e-mail address, and also a little bit about why you would like to win the give-away and what you like about my blog.

I will announce the winner in a post on saturday, and i will also send the winner an e-mail :)

Thankyou all!

Coat: Topshop
Shirt:Charity shop
Leggings: Zara
Loafers: Riverisland
Hat: Topshop

-This is a quick picture i took before going to work today, it's quite simple, i like to be comfortable. 

-I love my coat, especially the blur velvet detail, and the cute collar.

-Another charity shop find! This shirt cost me £2, it may look quite 'granny-ish' as some people say, but it's so good!

-I love my loafers, they are so comfortable, and i think they look so cool! 

-So i am 3 away from getting 100 followers! i am so amazed, i have only had this blog for about.. 2 weeks! because i started blogging properly in half term. When i get to 100 followers i'm going to do a give-away. i have never done one before, or never won one before! so please comment saying what sort of thing you would like me to have in the give-away. 

-I'm going out tonight and i don't know what to wear! ahhh. i'll probably have a quick look round the charity shops to see if i can find anything. 

-Thank you all for following, commenting, and just reading my blog!
