Scarlett fashion - Paisie Ocean Blue Necklace *

In my lovely goody bag from the Lincoln blogger meet, I received this down right gorgeous necklace from Scarlett fashion! Now I will say now that I will never say that I love anything given to me by PR or through blog meets ect just because it was free. However this necklace is literally my new baby! It is such my style and I have already picked out outfits that I want to wear it with. So I would like to say thank you for the donation by Scarlett fashion, I LOVE IT! I also wore it in my vlog of the meet so have a look at that (here)

They are an online fashion retailer and I've been having a good look through there website since the meet. I think I meant have to put in an order for the  Missco Girl Oversize bag as It looks beautiful.

The Lincoln blogger meetup

The other day I was extremely excited to attend the Lincoln blogger meet organised beautifully Bel (http://www.journeysaremydiary.com/) and Amy (http://www.cocktailsinteacups.com/). I think the video will get across how great the day was rather then me rambling on and on.

However I will say  this day was amazing. I got to meet lots of amazing bloggers and many of them in my area which is great. The beauty swap and raffle was a great idea by Bell and Amy as it gave us all the opportunity to create more content reviewing loads of new products without really spending a penny. Which I love as on a student budget its sometimes a bit of a squeeze.

Id also obviously like to thank all the brands that very kindly donated to the AMAZING goody bags we received. I'm thinking of doing  haul if anyone is interested in having a good rummage round.

So please check out any of the bloggers that also attended!

Fathers day out and OOTD

I could probably do a full A level essay on how much I appreciate and love my father on this fathers day however it could get very soppy and im pretty sure no one will want to read that as you have your own mothers and fathers to appreciate. But I will simply say that even though he can be very embarrassing at times like most dads, I am definitely a daddy's girl. To me my dad is an inspiration, coming from a rough school in a not practically nice area, yet certainly made his way in the world.

This fathers day we went to the Yorkshire sculpture park for a good long walk like old times ( my parents love 3 things in life camping, English heritage and stately homes which made for a very outdoors childhood). Even though my dad does not want to be on the internet I though it would show some of the other pictures from today as well as an OOTD.

Blazer -  miss Selfridge 
lace top -  primark  
scarf - from a vintage market 
high waisted grey leggings -  M&S ( yes M&S, I love their thick leggings for winter or on colder summer days in England)
boots - Topshop

Today has been such a nice day that really brought my brother and myself back to our childhoods which consisted of long walks, muddy paths and endless hours looking in art gallery's ( my dad is also a big art fan a long with my brother)

How did you spend your fathers day?

I can see!

I've been struggling with my eyes for a while, but kept putting back having a test in fear. Although my prescription isn't strong, trying to study for A levels and not being able to read the board is probably not the smartest move to make. After realising I wouldn't be able start driving lessons without an eye test, I knew id have to get glasses.

It did take me a while to find a pair I liked as I wasn't sure what I wanted and what would suit me. After looking at lots of different places I ended up picking this pair of jigsaw glasses from boots - (click here to view ) . I wanted something that wouldn't go out of fashion and would go with everything.

I am very happy with the result even if they take a while to get use to.

Messy college hair of the day

College isn't always the place to get dressed up. However the other day I did my hair a little different as it was a) a little greasy and b) had second day curls. instead with my hair I did a simple side bun but added a loose braid around it. It many not be the neatest hairstyle but I really like this for day to day to jazz up a basic college outfit.
