dress + tights: Topshop
belt: New Look

Notice anything different about me? Well, i knew i needed a change, something to make me feel different, so.. HELLO NEW HAIR. Yes, i've changed my blonde locks after about a year and am now a brunette for the first time in what seems like forever. It's a little darker than i wanted it and i'm still not certain as to whether i like it that much, but after a few washes and the sun getting to it on holiday i think it'll be the perfect colour! It feels weird, i looked in the mirror when i got up this morning and was like 'WOAH', let's just say it's going to take some getting used to. I've dyed my hair a couple days before the 1st of July so that when it hits the 1st i can kind of start a fresh and have a REAL good month! Positive thinking ay.. its a new me already haha!




So, on to my outfit... i love this little dress, i prefer it with the top button undone, i've never really been a fan of wearing your top button done up, i just don't think it suits me. I've belted the dress round the waist quite loosely, and it seperates the top and bottom half of the dress which i think works, as the top is buttoned with a scalloped collar and the skirt is flippy. I probably should of worn a little cardigan with this little outfit, it was a bit nippy outside yesterday!

Also, i really need to buy some bikini's before i go to Plymouth in 5 days time, just incase the weather decides to be nice, and i won't have time to buy any before i go to Faliraki a couple days after i get back from Plymouth.. so can anyone recommend me some good places? And what colour do you think would go well with my new dark hair? Would be much appreciated!!

I've totally lost my blogging mojo.. i don't know what's wrong with me. I just don't have anything exciting, inspirational or interesting to say. Surely you'd think after this gorgeous weather the UK has had in the last couple of days i'd be on a high, but i'm really not. The fact that my holidays are fast approaching with my first holiday being in a week should make me really excited too. But no. I'm just a bit of a disaster at the moment. I'm quite busy this week though, I went holiday shopping today (i will do a post on that soon) i've got an appointment on Thursday to discuss all my health issues and therapy then a scan of my heart on the Friday, so maybe that's why i'm so down? Oh, i don't know. But on the friday evening another couple who are good friends of mine and Sams are staying over and we're going to have a coupley night in :)

Anyways, i hope your all well, i will be back to my usual blogging self soon!

Top, Shorts, Tights: Topshop

HAPPY MONDAY, :)

I haven't worn this top in forever, it was my favourite item of clothing for ages, i think it's about 2 years old, maybe even more. Crazy! Still totally intact and everything, just a little big. The top is oversized anyways, but due to the fact that it is that little bit too big now, i've decided to drape it down one shoulder and make it look like it's meant to be worn like that. I think it kinda works, what do you guys think? These shorts were a purchase from Ebay actually, i ended up getting them for £2, and i've only just realised that theres a single button missing, looks like i'm going to have to sew another one on. They are very shorts, so i think they'll be perfect to take on my holidays this Summer! The grey & white vertical stripes give these shorts such a nautical look, and scream sailor at me! I have no jewellery on, just because i couldn't be bothered with any today, no idea why, but yeah. OOOOH, and i'm in my back garden, different scenery and all, pretty flowers!!



How weird is it that i actually have plans this week, that never happens, but yes i already have already made plans which is totally out of the ordinary for me. I spent the day today with my boyfriend, and a couple of friends, James &  Abby. And tonight i'm off to a friends house whos having a little gathering, where plenty of alcohol will be consumed yes! I'm going holiday shopping with my friend Beckie on Wednesday and we're going to make a total day of it which will be good. Then i have therapy Thursday, joy. Okay, so i'm not doing as much as i thought, but whatever haha! OH yes, I've finally booked my Plymouth ticket, 15 days to go!

First Photo
My Outfit: Dress: Miss Selfridge
 Chloe's Outfit: Top: Vintage. Skirt: Topshop.

My friend had a party for her 17th yesterday, and i can most definately say that it was one of the best parties i've been too in a good long while, so thankyou much Anna! I got to see so many people that i went to school with and haven't seen in ages, i love good catchups with old friends, reminiscing over the past and laughing at old memories. I think i've always got on better with guys more than girls, no idea why, it's just always been the way. All my guy friends just treat me as one of the lads nowadays, it's fine because i'm used to it though! Just thought i'd get that point across as to why majority of these photos i'm with guys :) See that guy in the red shirt, (yes, i'm aware his shirt is the same length as my dress haha!) Well, that's Niall and he's my bestfriend in the whole wide world, i don't think theres a single thing he doesn't know about my life, bless him.. i'm always moaning about something to him, and he's always there to offer the best advice and help however he can. Such a legend! I kept getting up on this stage to dance, unaware that getting down by myself would most likely end up with me on the floor crippled once again, so everytime i'd shout for someone to get him and he'd rush over, pick me up off the stage and put me on the floor safely. SO nice right!?

Here's probably the best photo where you can get a good view of the dress that i'm wearing. It's from Miss Selfridge and from the petites range, this is because i wanted the length to be short, and due to the material that the dress is made from, it sat nicely. The bodycon fitting of the dress was nice, it would of been a bit better if the material wasn't as stretchy, prefrably a little bit tighter would of been good because, as you can see the fitting is quite loose around the sides. Only plus side of the loose fitting sides is that you can't see my major love handles! You can't see the shoulder detailing properly in this photo but on the other photos above you get a clearer shot of it. I like the ruched shoulder detail that this dress has though, it gives the dress such a classy effect, which is probably why i ended up buying it, and the red is so eye-catching and vibrant but without being too over the top. I've never braved one shoulder dresses before, so this was a first for me, and i can definately say that i will be purchasing another. I'm really pleased with this buy and the price for this dress was actually quite reasonable, £36.00! 


LAST THING! Can i ask you all, my lovely readers to do me a HUGE favour, it will only take a couple of seconds, doesn't cost you a thing and i will appreciate it so much. Could you all please vote for my friend Roy in the Next Model Competition? http://www.next.co.uk/model-competition-2011/vote-for-me-idg65cfddk/ Here's the link, all you have to do is click it, press 'vote for this entry', put in your email address and done!

Leopard Love

Top: River Island Shorts: New Look Tights: Topshop


I remember buying this leopard print top around the beginning of November, it was something i bought as a treat to myself after just having my operation, but i only wore it once or twice. I never really thought i could pull off the leopard print look, i'm still uncertain, what do you think? I like the style of this top though and how it sits on the shoulders. I love these pink shorts though, perfect for summer i'm thinking as well as holidays. Tanned legs against this pink, well... i can see it looking pretty snazzy. Suprisingly i think the leopard print works with the pink, weird combination, definately not something i would usually think to pair together, but yes, i think it works.


I really need to book my Plymouth tickets, i seem to be leaving everything to the last minute and i'm pretty certain the longer i leave it, the more expencive it's going to be. GRR typical. I lead such a boring life, i actually have nothing productive to say,, umm..

HAPPY WEDNESDAY :D

Jumper: Tesco Skirt+Tights: Topshop Brogues: Urban Outfitters

I can't express my love for these flippy skirts, not only do they make me feel all girly and summery, they're just so easy to wear and can be dressed up or down. I stole this jumper from my mums wardrobe, as you can see it's quite big on me, but i wanted a baggy jumper to tuck into this skirt. I like the circular neck cut of this jumper, i think it looks very school-esque. The coral colour of the jumper and the camel colour of the skirt compliment eachother very well and make a change to what i'd usually wear as both colours are quite striking. The black waistband on the skirt looks like a belt which brings in the waist and therefore my black tights work with this outfit. I've kept jewellery small by just wearing a gold leaf ring. I've just realised how awkward i look in some of these photo's, not gonna lie, i find it highly amusing.. no one likes a boring person i suppose ;]




I'm feeling so tired recently. My M.E has really caught up with me, which sucks, the sun is meant to help it, but when theres no sun, well it speaks for itself really. My first holiday is so close, i'm going to Faliraki with Sam on the 13th July, which is now under a month away, so excited! I'm still undecided about whether i'm going to Plymouth beforehand or not, but i really need to start eating more healthily and do more exercise, because i'm telling you, i am 100% not bikini body ready yet! Speaking of bikini's, i must buy some asap, and a pair of black heels.. i need a new pair.

This was a friends 18th Party. We had the option of getting dressed up and the four of us in the first picture decided we would, just becauese we felt like it. Yeaaah, we ended up being the only four that did, but ohwell, at least it showed we're not boring i suppose. Get rid of the makeup we were wearing and i suppose we looked more or less normal haha. It was a good night though, got to see some friends i hadn't seen in a long time and have a good catchup and just have a general laugh which i needed. My friend, Mikey who's birthday it was, really enjoyed himself which is all that matters, i'm glad he had a good time! Everytime i try and have a good time, i always end up hurt. Note to self, don't wear a maxi dress after having a couple drinks. Yes, i was meant to get a cab home, but my leg felt fine and everyone just started walking, so i did too. But yesh, while walking up the curb i got my feet tangled in the dress and hit the floor and hurt my leg. So yes, i spent the evening drugged up on painkillers and in pain. Beautiful. It's so annoying, because it's like i can't have a good time without getting hurt. So my plan before i go on holiday is to strengthen my leg up because all this falling is just getting ridiculous. I'm such a disaster dammit. This dress is something i purchased from a store called Select, refused to buy a black one, i need some colour in my wardrobe, perfect for the summer i'm thinking. I love the Aqua/Turquoise colour!

I bought this dress that i wanted, and it will definately get it's moneys worth. I told myself i wasn't allowed to buy one that was black and it had to be a bit different to something i'd usually buy or previously own. I found this dress from Miss Selfridge and tried it on... and yes i fell in love with it, which suprised me. Due to my pale complexion i didn't think the red colour would suit me, but suprisingly it did and i knew i had to have it. I plan to wear this with a pair of black heels and a black clutch on friday to a friends party. I will most likely use a light form of fake tan too for confidence. My wardrobe needs more colour in it desperately!
