hello dark brown hair.

So I left my dye on about 10 minutes too long and instead of chocolate brown its more ebony and I keep getting told I loook like Snow White!!

I've been using twitter a lot more lately and have been tweeting lots of other bloggers today which I get really excited about cause in my mind people who have 100+ followers are like mini celebrities. Ha. I'm a loser! So hello new blog and twitter followers and readers.

Also today I've had my little hammy six months, so happy six months of living with me/hamster birthday to my Beau :)

hero& cape tee featuring one of my fave bloggers design!

This is not a sponsored post, some text and all images have been taken from the Hero&Cape website. Check it out!!

Hero & Cape sent me an email yesterday introducing me to their brand. They are a new British fashion label that makes you the hero of the story, with their unique original hand drawn illustration & screen printed T-Shirts! All their designs are 'hand drawn in-house and incorporate all the creativity imagination we can squeeze out of our constantly (and sometimes a little loopy!) minds!' T-shirts are also fully hand printed in-house, so every Hero&Cape T-shirt will receive all the care and attention as if it was going in their very own wardrobe!
This tshirt is my personal favourite. I love the little angry creature on it. He is so cute!

Hero&Cape's website has gone live TODAY so get over there now to check out their designs. Not only do they make awesome tshirts... they make jewellery too!!

I really love their designs and hope to buy some as soon as I have some money! So check them out.. GO GO GO!!!

Holiday mini things!

Superdrug had a crazy offer of 4 for 3 on travel minis so I got slightly carried away!
Anyway this is just a quick post as my hair dye needs washing off and I still have packing that needs doing! My cases are going to France 3 days ahead of me as my boyfriends family are driving out there and we are flying!!
Tomorrow night we are off to Prezzos for a pre-holiday meal! Nommm!!

Lets attempt a scheduled post...

This is sort of a practice test to see if scheduled posts work so I can set a couple up when I'm on holiday!

So pretending its Sunday.. yesterday I went to my old dance schools show. It was an interesting experience, watching rather than being on stage. I wore my bright pink missguided maxi dress with a white H&M cardi and accesorize filp flops.

Today I am going to look at a car with Sam and then probably on a pre holiday Matalan spree with his mum and sister!

Happy Anniversary!

My gorgeous boyfriend and I celebrated our one year anniversary on Wednesday.

 My presents fo Sam - The American Office DVD, Summer Heights High DVD, FACE/ARSE Towel, Gay Bar Soap, Geek Top Trumps and ASOS Board Shorts.. my boyfriend and I are pretty immature together incase you hadn't already guessed!

 Sam got me Wii Zumba - soooooo good and a big back pack for Reading Festival so he doesn't have to carry my holdall like he did last year! He also ordered me some denim shorts from H&M but they haven't arrived yet!

This is us at the theatre on our anniversary. We were watching my mum perform in her Rock Choir Show. She was brilliant!!

I'm a very lucky girl to have such a lovely boyfriend who looks after me and somehow puts up with me!!

On a sadder note.. I am so upset by what is going on in Norway at the moment. I wish I could use my first aid skills to help the young people who are suffering there. It shows how important emergancy services and the red cross are to us.

H&M Autumn

I got sent a H&M Autumn catalogue the other day so I decided to chop it up and make it into some mood boards.

I love all these colours, especially the navys, camels, mustards and cognac browns. I am madly inlove with the brown boots in the last image. I'm holding out for pay day to buy them. I also love the mustard tights and navy coat in the first image, the pale pink pleated skirt in the second image, the beige chinos and pink culottes in the third image and the boots and navy and camel skirts in the last image.

This has made me realise how much I love H&M and how good it is pricewise!!

The Future's Bright, The Future's Orange

I have a bit of an orange obsession at the moment. I hate orange flavoured things but I just love love love the colour. I went shopping on Saturday and got myself an orange raincoat! It's amazing, however I will not be wearing it with a green tshirt again as I look like I work at homebase...

 Orange Raincoat - New Look
Cardi - H&M
Top - Next
Leggings - Topshop
Flip Flops - Primark
 Orange Kindle, Orange Phone, Orange Bear, Orange Coat...
Even an Orange Hamster Cage.. notice how my Beau actually sat there and posed for a picture!

two weeks worth of shopping!!

So now my Mums working full time we have accidentally started going shopping on Saturdays! This is not good when trying to save for a house. Anyway something I have discovered recently is a love of playsuits. I have brought three in the last 2 weeks.

 This ones from Primark. I've had my eye on it for ages (but was never in there in the right size no matter how many Primarks I looked in!) as something to chuck on over my bikini at lunch time and things on holiday. Having 1 black bikini, 1 purple bikini and 1 red and white bikini this is literally the only thing I think matches all of them. So when I finally got my hands on it, it was reduced to £2 from £5 I actually cheered a bit!

The second playsuit I got was another Primark sale bargain at £5 reduced from £13 I HAD to get this. This coral orangy colour is my favourite at the moment! I really like how this looks on and its so comfy!

This one is from Apricot in Debenhams (also stocked in New Look I think). It was in the sale reduced from £25 down to £10. So I've been doing some pretty good bargain hunting I think!

The only thing I'm not sure about with playsuits is going to the toilet, its a massive effort especially when buttons are involved!!

I'm just wondering if any of my lovely readers might be able to give me some advice on blog layouts and headers etc. I know you're all very busy people but if you happen to have any tips and tricks you could share with me I would massively appreciate it.. email me @

Thank you!!!

Also thank you so much for all your advice on hayfever.. I've been back to the doctors and been prescribed different tablets, the eye drops I'm already using and a nasal spray, so hopefully things will get better soon :)

Dress: Dorothy Perkins
Cardigan: ASOS
Sunglasses: Ozzy Rob (an old friend!)

Sorry sorry, I have been a rubbish blogger. At the beginning of the week I had nothing to do but nothing to post about. At the end of the week I had lots to post about but was really busy.
This is just a quick outfit post and a hello I'm still here post!
I wore this outfit for Basingstoke's World Party in the Park, which was a big cultural event in a town near where I live. It was good, lovely music and weather, felt like I was on holiday! I had a picnic there with a couple of my friends!
I've done some shopping so expect a post about that sometime soon.

Also, I am suffering bad with hayfever. I'm on the tablets and eye drops every 4 hours but still nothing is happening! Anyone got any home remedies for hayfever? I will love you forver if you can tell me anything that might help in the slightest!

Big thank you to everyone reading/commenting/following my blog. I'm already thinking up a competition for when I have a bigger amount of followers so keep checking back!
