Embracing the inner goth

x xxxxx xx xxx xxxx
Under Top & Skirt: New Look
Shirt: River Island

I've gone for an all black outfit today (not really much surprise is there!?) I do love black, definitely my favourite colour. I wasn't too keen on this shirt when i bought it, i was swayed into buying it by a friend actually, but i'm definitely glad i caved and bought it, it looks great over a plain white tee. Also looks fab over other coloured tee's but the plain whites my favourite - that's definitely my simple side kick in! I'm wearing my newly bought midi skirt too, how beautiful is it. Really glad i bought it! I've decided to brave the red lippy today too! I think it goes great with this outfit, and is a nice pop against all the black, looks quite gothic don'tcha think?

Got my first appointment today with my Occupational Therapist for my EDS(Elhers Danlos Syndrome Type 3 is what i have) I'm quite nervous and i'm not entirely sure what it's going to entail, but at least it's progress into not being as in much pain everyday. Just got to continue thinking positively i guess.

Pinky wild one


xx x xxx xxxx xxxxx
Jacket: Unknown
Jumper: River Island
Leggings: New Look

I love this snuggly long pink jumper. Not only is it something i can snuggle in, it's also warm and i really like the print on the front too. The print of the 'wild one' and the lion are fierce! I've always been a sucker for baby pink pieces of clothing too and the colour seems to suit me really well, especially when i'm blonde. Like most jumpers i own this is also a few sizes bigger and that's why it's a bit longer and sitting how i like. I think the leather jacket really enhances the fierceness of the lion print, and really goes well. I'm wearing minimal make up and my hairs towel dried to achieve the look i was going for.
  
I went shopping with mumsy for a few bits and bobs, and i was pleasently  surprised with just how good the sale items were in New Look and Dorothy Perkins. I bought a gorgeous, camel coloured coat and a summery dress from DP and a dark green blazer from NL. Cute little pieces added to my wardrobe has made for a happy Courtney.

I've got two hospital appointments this week which is always tiring, i'm always so nervous. It'll be my first occupational therapy appointment since being diagnosed with Elhers Danlos Syndrome Type 3 so wish me luck!

iCrayon Review

iCrayon: Digital Crayon Stylus

I was recently contacted by Lauren over at Arena Media, and asked if i would like to review one of their products. Out of the ones she suggested to me, i decided that i'd like to try the iCrayon out as it's something that i could incorporate into my day to day lifestyle. I have a Samsung S3 Mini and i still was able to use this even though it's designed specifically for iPhone users.

This little chunky stylus is great for the iPhone or Android user and is really easy to use. I personally have quite small hands and sometimes find it a bit hard to use my phone when it comes to doing something on my phone, but this sure solved this, making it a lot easier. So if you've got small hands i would definitely recommend this product.
Also, i found this really easy to use when wearing gloves too, whereas usually i would have to take my gloves off to do something on my touch sensitive phone, this totally solved that issue. No more having to take the gloves off and getting cold hands when replying to texts!!

Personally, i found this product really great and it's something i enjoy using. People are always asking me where i got it from. If you yourself would like your own iCrayon, you can purchase one from Amazon here for between £5-£10. I hope if you purchase this product, you find it as great as i do.

Broken Hearts


x xx xxx xxxxx xxxx

Jumper Dress: Internacionale 
Blazer: Charity Shop

How cute is this broken hearts jumper? I love that the paint heart is running a bit to create the effect that it's broken, it's so effective and your really drawn to it. I love the fact it's a dress too, as i think it's nice to still look feminine and be able to be warm without having to majorly layer up. I've only just realised i've forgotten to tuck in the little things that you hang on the hanger, oopsie. Typical mistake, should always check! I got this off white blazer from a charity shop, it's a size 12 which is a couple sizes bigger than my size, but it sits just how i intended it too, very happy with this purchase!

I had a photo shoot yesterday, we did two looks. The first was more of a natural beauty look, and the second was with more intense eye makeup. Here's a sneak peak at the natural beauty look we did. Let me know what you think!

Print against red

DSCF9428 x xxx xxxxx xxxxxx
Blazer: Vintage
Dress: Urban Outfitters
This dress is new to the wardrobe of Courtney, hurray for new clothes! It was one of those pieces (yes, another black piece) that i just had to have and i was instantly drawn to it! It was a bit on the pricey side, but hey, a treat once in a while never hurt anyone! I think it looks great with my vintage red blazer, really makes the print on it pop! I wore this outfit yesterday while helping a friend sell cakes for charity from 12 till 4. The day absolutely exhausted me but it was nice, and i indulged in a lot of cakes. (P.S i must diet!!)

I've really been struggling to cope with my emotions recently and have been so depressed. I really could do with some proper resting time, and may treat the mum and i to a nice spa day, we could both do with it and i always love quality time with the mum :) The cake sale yesterday went really well and we managed to sell more or less all the cakes besides a couple at the end so thanks to everyone that donated and bought a cake, all the money is going to a good cause.
