Bang on trend

I know I only blogged last night but felt I had enough material to go ahead and blog again tonight, I have been flicking through the weekly magazines today and also online shopping with my eyes of course! I enjoy lusting over something and then when you finally get it you appreciate it so much more but recently my lust for some shorts got too much and I was about to give way and buy them. And then what do you know it, my size is sold out! I even bookmarked the website I was that keen haha!

The shorts would of been ideal for wearing with pumps to my upcoming work experience. I have never really got into wearing shorts but I have seen this particular pair featured in a lot of magazines and I thought they looked quite flattering. So at the moment I am disappointed to say I didn't get one of my lust items but here's hoping they re-stock!! I have put the information
in for those of you who care to indulge in the lusting :)

Whilist I was browsing on the Topshop website I came across a small feature on leopard print, it interested me as I recently treated my self to a Suzy Smith leopard print handbag (naughty I know but it had to be done!) Here is the link to the feature: http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/StaticPageDisplay?catalogId=33057&storeId=12556&brdcrmb_trail=&identifier=ts2-weekly-leopard&intcmpid=W_FEATURE_FLP_UK_WK51_LEOPARD_FASHION_FORECAST

Below I am pictured holding the bag at arms length, the quality of the picture isn't great as I took it with my web cam so sorry about that. Also is the article on how even a leopard print accessorise could brighten an outfit and bring it bang up to trend... It can be found on the Topshop website if you care to take a closer look but its worth investing in one piece of leopard
print to enhance your wardrobe if you dare to! I for one am glad I invested in the handbag, my weakness is handbags, shoes and watches!

I am now on the lookout for the next lust item while hoping they will either re-stock those shorts or I will stumble across them in store somewhere. In Look magazine this week I noticed a pair of smartish narrow legged trousers that are a must have from Dorothy Perkins at £28. I plan to take a trip into my nearest shopping centre on Thursday for a bit of late night shopping so I am hoping to get my hands on a pair. They are definitely the sort of trousers that need to be tried on though so I will post a picture if I end up purchasing them but until then I will leave you in suspense.
Hope you enjoyed reading my late night blog...
Much love

The bob and innocent show continues...

Pictured is the outfit I wore last night, not too sure about what all the dust particles are about sorry! But it was a sequin number, a bit of razmdaz haha! I hope you like.

Well the bob and innocent scenario came to a grinding head today. I was finally confronted (over facebook of course) because saying things behind a screen is a far better way of releasing your frustrations right?! No I don't think so. Anyway bob went about contacting me and accusing me of talking about her when I was out last night (i have nothing better to do you see).... this of course is a load of BS to put it mildly. I really couldn't give a damn about what the girl is doing and who she is doing it with.

So I of course defended myself and said it as it was, through her cheating and lying actions she has lost a lot of people who were important to her in her life. She managed to alienate her 'friends' by forcing us to live this lie and then as a result she lost the boy she 'loved' who she was also keeping all the lies from. Despite this I don't want people to get the wrong impression of me as I usually don't fall out with many people (painting a great picture of myself I know). I have always been weary of bob though even from a young age back in secondary school. I don't know about you but there always seems to be that one girl that you want to trust but something tells you to be careful, and she is it. Now her true colours have finally shone through and people can see her for what she really is.

I hope this is the last blog I write about bob and innocent, as it must be boring you as it is beginning to bore me! Who needs Eastenders or Hollyoaks when you have your own real life dramas playing out in front of your eyes?! I hope innocent can move on from this chapter of his life and take it on the chin that it wasn't meant to be...

Anyway enough said about all that, it's now 2 weeks until I start my work experience at Women's Own magazine im tres excited about it! I am going to be staying in London with a family friend for a few days (she's actually a personal shopper in Selfridges) so I'm hoping she might show me around London and the places to be! I would love to do a spot of shopping in London also but time wise I don't know if it's going to be possible. I am scheduled to work 10am-6pm days so will see if I can squeeze a little mosey round the shops during my time there!

I don't really have much other news but thought the drama update was necessary, here's to moving onwards with life and leaving those people who bring unnecessary problems and baggage behind. It's sad to say but people move on and grow up its just the way life is, its just horrible to think its been done in such an unpleasant way...
I will leave you with a few snaps of Sunday (last nights) night out! Hope you enjoy marvelling at the outfits, I seem to be a flapper when it comes to getting ready these days throwing outfits around the bedroom and flinging shoes in the hall in complete despair and desperation as to what to wear! I think this indicates it's time for a wardrobe re shake!!! Although I don't think the parentals with be best pleased with this outcome as my clothes are already in the spare room along with supplies of handbags, belts and shoes! But hey hoe!

Anyway until next time,
Much love x x x

Back to reality

The drama seems to have calmed since my last update, bob is no longer a part of my life or any of my friends! I had a great few days recently when I took a road trip down to Southampton, it was one of my best friends and also house mates birthday Ryan.. He was celebrating his tweenteen (he's a bit touchy about no longer being a teenager) birthday. And a messy time was had by all, if I say dancing on the kitchen worktops you can probably understand just how messy it was. We well and truly christened our house :)

I purchased a new dress for the occasion (it had to be done) a white lacy number (i will attach a picture for those of you who may care to see), which I later found was bang on the lace trend of white/cream dresses (similar to wedding dresses in a way) which was featured in Look magazine. I apologise for the belt not being centrally positioned I was under the influence at this stage lol. So I felt relatively pleased with myself after finding that out, I don't tend to follow trends but I buy pieces that suit me and my figure. Like I would not touch a maxi dress as being 5ft 2" I know it would drown me, and skyscraper wedges COULD potentially save such an outfit but I think wearing stilts really is too far haha!

The other outfit of the weekend also featured lace and was borrowed kindly off my sister who is due to return from Thailand after a extended months holiday!! I will attach a picture of this dress also but credit goes to her for this one! Here I am pictured with the birthday boy looking dashing!! The friday night was the warm up for the big saturday night out but both ended up extremely messy!

I love taking short breaks or weekends away as they are always a chance to bring out the best clothes you've been saving for sometime. This year I've had the chance to get a few weekends away to different uni's, I've been to Bournemouth and also Louroughbourough! But I'm hoping next uni year (which commences in a matter of weeks) I will be taking far more road trips as two of my best friends are starting uni this year: one at Bucks and one at Middlesex..

I was reclutant to return back to 'asbo' langley after a truly amazing weekend away, but it's not long until I'm back to uni now. I have some work experience at Women's Own magazine (which is very exciting) on the 13th September for a week and then I'm back to uni for Freshers week!

I've already been thinking about potential outfits for my work experience, the first day I plan to go very smart and then just see what everyone else wears from
there on. I was thinking cute dresses with tights depending on the weather or I have smart trousers which go with most tops. Any ideas then go ahead and share?? Also I am currently in the process of trying to grow my hair, I haven't had it cut for a long while so I'm planning on trying to get it to grow. There is a picture to show how long it currently is, it seems to differ in length as to how curly it is, how annoying!!!

Anyway until next time,
Much love

Drama drama drama....

Right well in the last week my life seems to be consumed in drama, I often joke and say I feel like I accompanied by my friends could create a juicy episode of the Hills (which I love)!! But NO joke me and my friendlings have enough material to complete an entire series..... (Thanks to Mtv for the image)

It all started when a friend who we shall refer to as 'bob' thought it was ok to go around cheating on her boyfriend who is not at home a lot due to his profession. The reason I'm not giving too much information away is because I do not want more drama to kick off if certain people read this. So anyway 'bob' has gone about cheating on her boyfriend and for arguments sake lets give him a name too... 'innocent'!

On a recent night out 'innocent' came across two friends (I was not there but I am telling the events as they have happened). Were all friends together due to going to the same school together so 'bob' and co will often see 'innocent' and co out and stop say hi have a chat etccc.

Sooo 'bob' of course wasn't on this night out, I'll cut the jibbi jabba out but basically 'innocent' only recently got back with 'bob' and was saying how pleased he was to be back together. And two individual friendlings broke the news that 'bob' had cheated more than once.

As you can imagine the shit well and truly hit the fan, 'bob' and 'innocent' were due to go on holiday together this week of course this was cancelled, 'innocent' finished it all and pretty much went on a rampage.

By rampage I don't mean mad I mean texting and calling people to ensure what he'd been told was true. And of course all of it was, what sick individuals would go as far to create something so in depth such as this up!!

Anyway between 'bob' and friendlings crossed words were said, texts and phone calls made, deletion of friendship off facebook and general unpleasant exchanges.

'Bob' was left stranded in england as 'innocent' jet setted off alone on the holiday they were suppose to share, however no pity or sympathy will be felt from me, she caused this drama and has no one but herself to blame for her crumbling life.

Not only has 'bob' isolated herself from friends but she's also lost her boyfriend as a result as well!

I hope I have entertained those of you that love the drama, I'm just pleased to say usually the drama is around me and not about me and I hope it stays that way.

Just remember you can't eat your cake and have it to!
Anymore drama will be updated on here asap!! I'm sure there will be more to fill you in on.

Much love x x x x x x
