Week In Photos #8

Ribbet collage

Caught Jamie while he was getting dressed, tinsel on my wrist on Christmas Eve, totally spoilt this Christmas,   yum 3 huge Galaxy bars, Brody & me in my bunny onesie, Christmas Day, Dan trying to be Santa, just before going out, a picture my friend drew for me, took all the ice out of my drink, photo in a nightclub, a photo just before going out. 

I hope everyone had a good Christmas, i definitely did, i love spending quality time with my family. Lots of laughs, food, and just general chit chat.. always seem so much lovelier at Christmas though! I think i've managed to eat my body weight in food too, literally good food seems to be everywhere i turn! Despite the fact it's such a jolly time of year, i've been the total opposite! I've been consuming copious amounts of alcohol and just feeling so low, i'm really hoping 2013 will just magically take away all my problems though... fingers crossed i guess!

It's Christmas Time!

xxx xx x xxxx

Hat: New Look
Coat: Regatta
Jeans: Primark

Something i wore when i went shopping a few days ago and never got round to blogging. Comfortable and easy. Im absolutely loving my new coat, it's a little too big though, but i don't even care it's so snug!! The colour of the coat is the same as the colour of the deer on my jumper, i love a bit of colour co-ordination! The pink is just such a lovely soft colour, easy on eye and not too over-powering! I've wanted a black beanie for ages, so i treated myself too one, cute right?

I can't believe it's Christmas tomorrow!! Crazy how quickly this year has gone, it's just flown by! I've just finished off my wrapping, i treated everyone so much this year, but hey they deserve it. Love and joy is what should be spread around on Christmas! The lights look so pretty everywhere, and everyone just seems to be jolly! I love it! I'm getting drunk tonight with all my friends down our local pub, i'm going to be absolutely wasted.. but hey, it's Christmas!

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas, get lots of nice presents, eat way too much so you can't move, and just have a good happy day! Lots of love!

Week In Photos #7

Ribbet collage

My birthday presents, snuggled in my new scarf, drinking on my birthday, tequila shot, making Jamie hold all my shopping bags, excited about a drink, you hot donut, left a note being told to 'drink me', Oxford Street Christmas lights, stupid photo of myself, sneaky photo of Jamie, i love my Brody.

I've had a really good week! On Wednesday, i decided for once, to go out on a major shopping binge. Didn't look at the price on anything, but just treated myself, spent a good bit, but oh well, happy birthday to me n'all :) I've managed to finally buy all my Christmas presents too, really happy with what i've got everyone this year too, hopefully they'll be over the moon with what Santa has brought them haha. I've drunk way too much alcohol this week too, i blaming it on my Birthday! Once Christmas Eve and New Years Eve is out the way, i'm going to kick off 2013 being alcohol free, majorly need to stop spending monies on the stuff.
I'm really pleased with myself too, i went into Oxford Street yesterday, i braved the train, the underground and the busy crowds.. yes i panicked a bit... but i did it. So happy with myself, really going to be able to start 2013 a bit of a clean slate having tackled some difficulties before the New Year is here.

Next Shop Window Competition

NEXT

I received an email from Sherin at Greenlight who kindly informed me that Jess at Feeling Stylish is hosting a competition where you may be in with a chance of winning a £500 Next giftcard! The Competition is to design a Festive shop window for Next, using they're products to be in with a chance of winning and you've got till the 21st Decemeber 2012 to enter. What an awesome competition right!?

I decided that for a shop window, sometimes you get two different looks for both female and male and i took my own concept into the designing of this. I think the Christmas tree in the middle makes it looks so festive, obviously drawing attention to the fact that it is Christmas and that the outfits on the mannequins are able to be worn at this time. I decided not to follow the traditional colours and to go a bit different. Burgundy/Maroon always seem to look good in the Winter time and i incorporated those colours into the second look, along with some greys which to me, just looks like black that snow has fallen on (or maybe that's just me) With the first look i just stuck to mainly black and sequins, you can't go wrong with black, ever.
The looks on the left are for an evening at a swanky party, dolled up to the max trying to impress everyone.
The looks on the right are for casual wear, as well as looking festive and snuggled too.

Look 1
Female: Dress, Heels, Necklace, Bracelet.
Male: Suit, Shoes, Watch.

Look 2
Female: Jumper, Jeans, Boots, Beanie, Snood.
Male: Jumper, Chinos, Boots, Snood.

All the items i used these outfits can be found by clicking on the links, or by going onto the Next website!

I hope you like my looks for the Next Shop Window Competition, i'd love to know what you all think of my entry. Wish me best of luck everyone!

Happy 19th Birthday to me :) Can't believe it's been a whole year since i turned 18, 2012 has just absolutely flown by! I want to be Peter Pan and never grow up, being young forever sounds perfect - who needs responsibilities! I've been well and truly spoilt this year, i'm in total shock at everything i got to be honest,  wasn't expecting any of it at all. Everything is so appreciated, the presents are just great! I'm ust sitting here with the biggest smile on my face, :) I'm going for drinks tonight at my local pub with friends and family, and i just plan to get rather drunk haha... but i'm allowed it's my birthday after all!

Week In Photos #6

Ribbet collage

new pink penguin phone cover, awful black eye, jamie posing as always, a much needed glass of white wine, stupid photo while drunk, soy gingerbread latte yum, all dolled up about to go out, fell over and hurt my knee, me and jamie, how cute are these owls, old school photo, happy 17th birthday bro.

I've been such a bad blogger this week and i apologise! I've actually been busy, busy doing not that much to be honest, just been feeling low after being punched in an unprovoked attack on the Friday, but hey ho being depressed has kept me 100% kept me busy. I'm just happy i've still been making progress with my anxiety and didn't let what happen set me back too far. I have a few posts lined up for this coming week and i've got a lot planned in general. I need to go to the doctors as i think i have a chest infection, it's my 19th birthday Tuesday so i'm having drinks in the evening for that, i'll be writing a post featuring dresses from House of Fraser too, and obviously i need to do some Christmas shopping.

Photoshoot, card & chocolates to say thanks to my therapist, yum haribo cola bottles, dropped my tablet in my water, first alcoholic beverage in ages, doritios & dip, soap & glory righteous butter mm, christmas decorations to be put up, before the pub, Jamie posing, me & Jamie, me after being punched

Been an okay week, different, with some very good parts thrown in there. It's been an absolutely rubbish weekend though after being punched on Friday night, in an unprovoked attack which i'm not going to go into.. but ouch. That's definitely not helped my anxiety, but i'm really trying not to let it put me too far back. On the plus side, it's getting closer to my birthday on the 18th December, which i'm kind of looking forward too, i just want a little cake, so i can blow out a candle and make a wish! (how cute am i hehe)

Hopefully i'll be able to start 2013 off positively and make it a good year! I've had a pretty bad day today and i'm pretty low as it was my last day of therapy as i'm not ready for that type of therapy as of yet. Sigh. Anyways, happy monday :)
