I cant stand the rain in July

Im doing an outfit post cos i realised, i've never done one with pictures of myself! You cant laugh at my poor attempt to pose, and my lack of height :) I had a dress for my stepbrothers wedding last year, and i've only worn it once or twice, so i really wanted to find a way to make it look like a new outfit. So im using it for my FIRST outfit post!
So outfit one:
The dress and the bag are from NewLook, and the shoes are from Dorothy Perkins. It took me ages to find shoes and a bag that could match but i finally found them! The dress is from one of the boutiques that NewLook have started franchising and athough i dont normally like crotched embellishment, i think theres just the right amount on this dress.

Outfit Two:

OK so the denim shirt is Levi's from a vintage shop and only cost me £18 and the worker boots i got off a friend for £10, I've already worn this to the pub for lunch and its easy to wear when im not feeling my best :)
if you wanted to make it look more dressed up, you could add some fishnet hold ups or wooly tights and small heels.

speaking of heels, check my new babies out! They're from Internacionale and they were £19 and i love them! I really needed some plain black heels and i found the perfect pair. I havent really seen any that are both classic and edgy and im so happy that i got these ones!

I'm addicted to having baths atm, and with a bath like mine, who wouldnt?
Only thing thats missing, is the millions of candles i normally have and the big pile of bubbles :')

And finally, Song of the day is... Drake- July
Just listen to it, yeah?

OH OH OH! before i forget, My bezzie mate Vish the Fish has just got a blog and its reeeealllyyy good.
You cand find it HERE! and Sarah from my school also has a blog and i really love hers too! You can find Sarahs HERE! Theres too much to say about them both but they're definatly worth a visit.

Till next time kids,

I kept my fingers crossed

So study leave is here, and there is no chance i'll have the patience to do many posts so im going to do a reeeeallllyyyy long one today. Ok, summers almost here, well looking out the window right now, it is here, but yeah :) My mom gave me £200 the other day to buy lots of new clothes. Why? well, its a long story but i threw away most of my floordrobe and now i only have one drawer of clothes- yes im dying. So i did some shopping online and im going to show you all of my must haves for the summer.

I'm not going to write about them all cos frankly, i cant be bothered. But i just love the naughtical them of these shorts and the slouchy vest top in navy. Its so comfy and the more you wear it, the comfier it gets! Also, i really really really want a pair of high waisted jeans, i know they arent really in fashion anymore, but they just look so comfy! I also like the idea of wearing underwear as clothes, like the satin skirt or the yellow blouse, i think silky, chiffon fabrics are so good for summer!

I'm running out of things to do atm to distract me from revision but i'm definatly considering scrapbooking or making a chipboard full of photos and momentos because im not so sure my memory box is big enough anymore!

Also, My favourite song at the moment is Hurtful by Erik Hassle, hence the title of this post.
Have a listen yeah?

(the one who played jesse in Gilmore Girls?! i'm a bit of a freak when it comes to my love for that programme :'))

OK, im officially going to do some work now cos i have nothing more to ramble on about :')
I'll do another post later for a few of my friends who have just started their own blogs, lets see if we can get them a few more followers :)

Music is my life.

Such a cliched title, but its true. I was brought up with my dad in and out of bands, i could sing and dance before i could walk. Its in my blood. I've just heard this song by beyonce, i have to say, im in love with her music atm.
as well as hellogoodbye. Im not going to post anything else for a while, as im up to my neck in work.
but heres the video:
Why dont you love me?- Beyonce.

Memories last forever.

I was doing my usual search through net a porter, where i drool over all the gorgeous things i will never be able to afford and came across a gorgeous new dress by Alice + Olivia,

ok so its a bit over the top but i couldn't help but fall in love!
Its also really expensive at £485, but a girl can dream :)

Also, i can never be bothered to update my itunes so i spend most of my time listening to songs on youtube. I completely forgot all about this song, and im so happy i've seen it again. I love the video cos Beyonce looks gorgeous, she's wearing really fresh and light make up and the camera shots are so untouched and different.
I hope you like it too. I cant believe its been so long since i last blogged but I've been busy :) 
Time for some more art! Emily x

Pumpkin Head

So its been quite a while since my last post, I shall admit it now, i'm lazy. But I would have posted last night if it wasn't for my head turning into what my mother called "a pumpkin head". I've got a virus which is now causing me to have an allergic reaction to my own body. Or something along those lines; Lovely. Moving on; I spent the weekend at my friends house, and whilst i'm normally not one for wearing trousers - i have extremely short legs- I did like the Harem pants she bought. So i put an outfit together for her and took some pictures for you all. Don't say i never give you anything.....

I like the baggy style of the trousers and ideally i would team them up with a leotard, but i like the relaxed feel this baggy vest gives the look too. I kept the colors neutral with baby pinks and nudes to avoid making the outfit too work orientated. 

The small hints of gold in the jewelery tie everything together. None of the accessories were bought as matching items, which just shows how you can use anything for this look. I used the accessories to dress up this look as it could be too plain without them. 

My friend is also going on a cruise this summer, and kindly modeled these gorgeous photos for me. These dresses are easy to wear; light and cool; and will be so in this summer. Again, like all outfits, the key is the accessories. But you could wear these outfits ANYWHERE. 

This dress is from Top Shop and also comes in Lilac. Its £45; and whilst it may seem expensive; its so worth it! 

I love this maxi dress from New Look; there is also a similar one in Republic in a salmon colour.
They're going really cheap at the moment ranging from £25 to £30. 
This is a must buy! :)

Thats all for now, Gotta go get some more Piriton.

Mothers know best

OK, so Christmas seems like a while ago now, but i'm still in love with my presents :) My mom got me a Liz Earle set for teenagers, its basically loads of posh face washes and stuff. But they seriously work! They don't test on animals and all the ingredients are natural and organic. They try not to use preservatives but if they need to, they are natural and not very strong. This means that its suitable for all types of skin, and you know whats going on to your skin. Unlike most organic products, they smell gorgeous, not musty and disgusting! If i have a break out, it is usually gone after 3 days of using this products. I need to warn you, they're expensive! But even the test pots last for ages! In the teenage gift set, you get a cleanser, a toner, a moisturizer, a blemish stick and a muslin cloth, they all come in a cute little toiletries bag and whilst its probably not big enough for some beauty addicts, its perfect to fit your Liz Earle products in. I seriously recommend getting these products, you can find them HERE.
I know for many £23.00 really is pushing it price wise, and the bottles are very small, but it really is worth trying. So i think its time to beg the parents! :) What do you have to lose? If you do buy it, let me know how you get on :)
