why aren't i pixie lott?

scarf: h&m
jumper: urban outfitters
shorts: dorothy perkins
bag: primark
nails: o.p.i. big apple red

Definitely caught the blogging bug again, yay! Quite like this outfit, also LOVE the nail varnish! Such a good red, you can never have to many red nail polishes! I'm stupidly happy today, so I'm just going to ramble a bit about why. It's nothing exciting so feel free to ignore me! I went out last night and it was such a brilliant night ahhh. Even though the fire alarm in the union went off and we all got chucked out for about 10 minutes damn it. Me & my flatmate combined our efforts to make the best bacon sandwich in the whole wide world, we're going to mcdonald's soon, and then going out again tonight. I LOVE MY LIFE.

it's beginning to look a lot like christmas

 scarf: asda i think
bag: h&m, very old
jumper dress: peacocks, old.

Good morning! Been a while since I've been awake this early haha. Thought I'd make the effort today and drag myself to one of my first 9am lectures this semester, managed to make it there on time and then my lecturer didn't turn up! I waited fifteen minutes, then two boys got up and left and the rest of us gradually followed. We weren't emailed or anything to say it was cancelled so now I'm worried the lecturer had a car crash or something, gah. 

Anyone else brought out the Christmas jumpers yet? And does anyone else have an advent calendar? Mine is going to be the only thing getting me out of bed throughout December haha. Also have another one waiting for me when I go back home on the 17th so I'll have 17 days worth of advent calendar chocolate to catch up on, nomnomnom! 

Now I'm off to enjoy my coffee, mars bar, and Fearne Cotton on BBC Radio1, good times! Hope everyone's OK and has a lovely weekend x

i'm not really a waitress

Am I the only one that loves the name of this nail varnish? Nail polish names are actually my favourite thing about O.P.I. So I got this as part of O.P.I's Best of the Best set, which I got through BuyaPowa. If you don't know what BuyaPowa is, you're missing out! When you order something you become a co-buyer and the more co-buyers there are, the cheaper the price of the item is. So I got the set for £17.50 instead of about £27.

The other colours in the set are: Alpine Snow, Bubble Bath, Tickle My France-y, Strawberry Margarita, Cajun Shrimp, Big Apple Red, You Don't Know Jacques!, Russian Navy and Lincoln Park After Dark.

I love this colour, it's so Christmassy! But I do have issues with this nail varnish. It makes my nails look awful. It shows up every single ridge possible, and it makes a mess around the edges too. BOO. But it's still lovely :).

P.S. Remember I mentioned a pyjama party? Well I went and met Aled from Radio 1! He's from Aberystwyth so occasionally pops up and does stuff for the union. Excuse my hair/face/general appearance, look how cute he is!

procrastination method #1

 Scarf: Asda, I think.
Jumper dress: H&M (very old)
Nail varnish: Barry M Cyan Blue

You probably won't be surprised to know that I'm hungover again, such is my life ha. This jumper dress might actually be the most comfortable thing I own, apart from my onesie obviously.. Speaking of my onesie, I might be going to a pyjama party later, yay! Well if I feel any better anyway. Should be brilliant though, my student union is the one.

Just a short update today as my mind is too scrambled to formulate proper sentences but I really need to put off doing my film portfolio haha. Have a lovely day!x

snow fairy

Snow Fairy is just one of many reasons that I bloody love Lush! Though I do wish it was available all year *sad face*. I know the godmother soap smells basically exactly the same but it just isn't the same is it?!

This is the medium sized bottle, you get 250g for £5.95. There's a smaller one for £3.25 and a bigger one for £9.95. I've been using this once or twice a day for a week and that tiny little bit at the top is all that's gone, quite impressive!

It lathers up really easily and quickly, that ^ is all from the smallest blob I could possibly get out of the bottle. It doesn't irritate my skin and actually makes it feel softer, plus the smell (which is DIVINE) lingers on your skin.

What's your favourite Lush product?

h&m lovin'

everything: H&M :')

So much love for H&M at the moment! There isn't one in Aberystwyth and I hate how long they take to deliver so I hadn't had anything new from there in a while. That all changed when I went home for the week though haha, H&M come to mamma! The scarf is from last year though so it's unlikely it'll be there again this year but they'll probably have something similar.

Also, massive love for H&M's body-con skirts! They're only £3.99, come in loads of colours and actually last a while! I have about six of them now and I'll probably get more haha. 

Got up early for a lecture this morning, caught a taxi there (this lecture is on the Old College which looks out on the sea, amazing) only to find out it was cancelled! Grrrr. So my friends and I wandered around town for a bit and I ended up in Lloyd's pharmacy. The ones at home just sell Rimmel and Collection 2000 but the pharmacies up here sell Dior, Chanel, Lancome, Clarins, Clinique and more! Definitely going to be bad for my bank balance. They also sell Mavala which I was totally amazed by, only ever seen it online before. So naturally I bought something from there. Also got a sample of Clinique's 3 step skin care system to try out as winter tends to kill my skin. Anyone tried or reviewed it? 

Have a good day!x

jumper: h&m
short & belt: republic
bag: primark

These pictures are so rough hahah. Cousin It much? Seriously though, I am so tired! Looking forward to my day off on Wednesday already. Still got seminar prep and an essay to do, plus a film viewing to go to. Gah.

Started the 30 day shred yesterday. It was ok at the time, didn't seem that hard. Obviously I was sweaty and occasionally out of breath but I didn't particularly struggle. Then I woke up this morning. Oh. My. God. My legs are in agony! At least that means it's working though I suppose. 

Listening to Rihanna's new album at the moment, anyone else heard it? It hasn't blown me away or anything but it seems like a bit of a grower. Same goes for Pixie Lott's album. Any new music recommendations?
