Let me take the lead

xx x xxx xxxx xxxxx xxxxxx
Necklace: Topshop
Dress: Boohoo
Bracelets: New Look
Tights: Tesco
Cute dress right? Perfect weather to wear this little beauty without a blazer/cardigan. Warm English weather (at last) with a nice little breeze, absolutely perfect! I really love this shade of blue too, for some reason it reminds me of the sea and i have no idea why, but i think the fact that Summer is approaching means i can pull out the more pastel-like colours. Very simple outfit, i've just thrown this dress on to be honest and it's such a statement piece. I've actually worn some jewellery today though! Bought these new bracelets which came in a pack of 4, but the peace sign bracelet and the spike bracelet were my 2 favs. The gold and silver colours of the bracelet match that of my necklace too... im a sucker for matching things!

I'm so excited for May. I hate April so much, and this April has just been horrific. So many problems and bad news, and bad memories etc. Roll on May. I'm feeling positive for it too. Going to try and keep myself as busy as possible and hopefully make a couple plans for Summer as i have none at the moment *sighs*. I really want to go to Thorpe Park or Alton Towers or something like that, i love rollercoasters  and would be nice to have a fun day out!

Week In Photos #21

WIP21
random glassses pose, Barney chilling in the sun, swollen bruised knee after slipping over cos' im a clutz, perfect cat tee for my mum (we have 8 cats), usual posing Courtney, my mum makes the most beautiful cups of tea, Pitch Perfect is now up there with one of my favourite movies, Ruby & Brody sleeping together - so cute, hibernating till May.

Rather boring week to be honest, although i must say that watching Pitch Perfect was the highlight of my week, what a great movie. I'm such a sucker for musical films and it's made me want to go to the Theatre. I love the theatre but no one will go with me *sigh*

A Touch Of Summer

x xx xxx xxxx xxxxx xxxxxx
Necklace: Sainsburys
I bought this cute little dress a while ago, and i've been waiting for it to be a little bit warmer so i could wear it. It's so comfortable and sits really nicely. I really like the shade of blue and i think the print on the dress makes the dress seem really angelic and makes me feel like i look all innocent. I wanted to keep with my little summer theme, so was determined not to wear any black with this outfit, which i actually succeeded in doing. I even have bare legs which i hate! I did go and put tights on after due to how self concious i was feeling about my legs, but i'm not stepping out again, so no one shall see muhaha. I really like this cropped jacket, which was bought from a Charity Shop, the puffy shoulders look great with the dress and the colour really compliments the blue.

I've got a busy week this week actually, which is a first for me! I'm going to Crawley tomorrow to watch my brother play football in his last game of the season, which he best appreciate as i turned down a £60 cash in hand job to watch him as i promised! Best sister ever right!? I've got two hospital appointments on Wednesday, one with my Psychiatrist and then one with my Occupational Therapist, so that's going to be one hectic day, very informative though. Definitely think i'll be spending my Thursday & Friday resting, i'm gonna need it.

(The Last Few) Week In Photos #20

wip20
On the way to watch the bro play football, on the way back, vanilla soy latte, yum yum icing sugar, i asked for pencil and snake sweets and got this, so true, my Brody looking like a G, nice summery day, new onesie, i have chronic pain, one of my modelling photos, grow up, brand new glasses, new charity shop tweetypie cushion, posing with no makeup, posing with makeup, did a dot to dot of my brusies, new dress.

Sorry i haven't done a Week In Photos post recently, i've been extremely depressed and April is such a bad month for me that i just haven't taken many photos. I've got a busy week coming actually, so my Week In Photos posts will be back properly!

1986

x xxxxxx xxxxx xxxx xxxxx
Hat: Topman
Blazer: Planet
Top: Topshop
Tights: Tesco

This top is brand new from Topshop. I bought it in a M/L as i wanted it to be more dress-like, which i think i've achieved! It's still a little on the short side, but i think i just managed to get away with it. I'm a sucker for oversized tees! I tried wearing this tee with other blazers to try and add a bit colour, but due to the lengths of my other blazers it just didn't look right at all, so i opted for this one which is a bit longer to bring the look together. I like that it sits just above the two horizontal black lines too! I wasn't going for my usual monochrome look today as i wanted to mix it up a bit, so i've added this neon blue beanie, a bit of a colour pop is better than no colour pop right!

I'm really busy the next couple days, today i haven't done much, but i'm exhausted, damn you EDS! My friend wants me to create a couple looks for him, so be expecting a post on mens looks up on the blog soonish, it's a bit different to what i usually post, but it'll be a nice change. I'm going out tomorrow evening in London which i'm looking forward to, but dreading at the same time, i really should rest tomorrow, but i'm waiting to hear if i'll be filming for Union J's music video tomorrow or if  not on Saturday. (They were on XFactor) If i don't have the music video on Saturday, and my brothers playing football near me i promised i'd go watch, and on Sunday i'm going shopping with the guy i'm helping create some outfits for. Just writing that was exhausting, so i'm dreading doing it all, as well as looking forward to it all at the same time haha!
On a totally different note, i've finally been able to find out who the winner of my giveaway is, better late than never ay'! My MAC lipstick giveaway winner is Joy from DearJoy, congratulations, they'll be on there way to you asap!

I don't know about you, but i'm feeling 22!

x xxx xx xxxx xxxxx
Hat: Etsy
Blazer: Vintage
Top & Tights: New Look
Skirt: River Island

Decided to opt for grey tights today! Frequent readers will know that's big news! I''m a black tight fan only usually, and i never where anything but. But today i decided to live a little, and decided to open the pack of grey tights i had at the back of my drawer! I was a bit hesitant to actually wear them out in public, but i did it. I finally broke the habit of a lifetime of living in black tights. Next stop... buying some funky coloured tights!! I think red, grey and black really compliment eachother so well colour-wise. The outfit looked way too dull and school-like without the pop of the red blazer! The beanie was a necessity for the fact that yes, i was unfortunately having a very bad hair day!

I picked up my new pairs of glasses today. Yes, i got two pairs (one free pair) because i lost my last pair like a dipstick haha. I'll be sure to show you some photos of me wearing my favourite out of the two pairs, which is in fact a purple framed geek chic Karen Millen pair!

Blown Away

x xx xxx xxxx xxxxx xxxxxx
Jumper: Charity Shop
Skirt: Boohoo
Necklace: Present

A pretty plain outfit today. Nothing too amazing. Can't go wrong with a snuggly jumper that i found in a Charity Shop in this cold English weather. It's meant to be spring!! Size 18-20 jumpers have to be my fav's. Gotta love them big & baggy, definitely makes me feel 10x more comfortable! I love this little skirt i purchased from Boohoo. It's always good to have a nice neon piece in your wardrobe to go-to to add a bit of colour to your outfit! I love this little necklace, i got it as a present from my cousin many years ago. It's got such a 'hippy' feel to it, and it's so cute.

Sorry, i haven't posted in the last week or so. I've been dealing with a lot of personal problems. April is always a very tough month for me, due to something that happened a few years ago, so if i disappear for a bit, that'll be why. On the plus side, have a listen to my current favourite song by Carrie Underwood here.
