Halloween 2010.

Happy Halloween Weekend Everyone!

I don't know about anyone else but this is my favourite time of year!!

Dress up and be whoever you want to be for one night!

Not to mention the free sweets of course!

What else could you ask for :)


Every year I have wanted to have a Halloween party, but my house is too small.

Thankfully though my friend kindly gave me run of his house for the night!

Party Time.








For the night I was Little Bo Peep!

Sunday Bed Hair.

 

Just a quick post for tonight since I didn't want to leave it days before another post.

My Sunday today has just been spent doing a mountain of college work.

Aiming to get it all out of the way before Thursday, as I'm having a Halloween party!

I'm so excited I Lovee Halloween!

You will just have to wait for the photos to see costume number 1!

Yes ... I have 2!!



Forgive my rubbish photos its too cold and dark to go outside so this was just some quick snaps.

I'm wearing my customised jeans, I can't believe this is the first pair of black jeans I own.
They have become a real favourite of mine.

I'm also wearing my very cute (and cosy) "Babs" jumper.
Who doesn't love a bit of Babs! shes such a babe!

In my hair I'm wearing my "Alice" hairband, just to give it a less casual look.
Even though I've been indoors writing essays all day!

Flu Season.

Hi everyone!

Since the last post I have been bed ridden with the flu :(

Feeling very sorry for myself the last few days.

But I had some friends to maintain my sanity,


 and an amazing boy to look after me and make me all better :)




Since my recovery I have just been catching up on my college work.

Which is going to pile up in the next few weeks.

But I will aim to keep up with things.

Work Experience.


 So much for an exciting week ... Wake, Eat, Sleep, Work, Sleep, Repeat ...

Exciting stuff.


 Yesterday however wasn't a total loss ... I did manage to get my 2nd year work placement sorted ... so I'm not going to fail 2nd year! Whoooo!

Its in this amazing little Bernardo's Charity shop in Glasgow!

I went to visit the manager of the store for a little interview and she was so sweet, I'm so excited!!

I will be there for the next few weeks and hopefully by that time I will have my camera and I shall hopefully be able to get some shots of the store if I'm allowed.

So I get my work experience and I get to help a good cause at the same time!

Things are looking up!


I still haven't got grips with the weather yet.

One day its freezing so I wear my fur, and then the sun appears from no wear!

Yesterday, I was cold.

My leggings are actually silver, so I have no idea why they look black.

I don't know what inspired my all back look for the day but I liked it.

I also wore my Alexander McQueen scarf for good luck :)

My fur coat finally arrived from china!

Sweet Dreams Everyone!

Jock Jacket.

Note To Self : Stop biting lips!

They are a mess!

 Yesterday was just a quiet day, although I did get an extra day off college as I had been ill all through the night :(

I'm throwing a Halloween party so I went to some places to pick up some decorations!!

I'm so excited I love Halloween and this is my first Halloween party!

That's me on holiday for a week now though and after all my coursework is done I have to find some adventures!



Today's outfit was inspired by watching "Back to the Future" for the first time!

I have developed a serious crush on Marty McFly <3

Anyway this is very preppy/80s outfit.

I bought this jacket yesterday after searching for a vintage one for months, I settled for this one because it was a bargain, and because its a really good fit. I'm so glad I bought it, it will go with everything! Its going to be a huge trend this autumn winter!

My jumper is my "Freddie" jumper, after Freddie Mercury obviously. It was an adventure in itself trying to get it. I had seen it in the store then when I went back to get it, it was gone. Every day for the next 3 months I went back in to find it, and eventually I did! and it was totally worth it.

Pleated skirts are also going to be huge this season and I chose this one because the material was woolen, so ideal for keeping me warm in the winter!

The Black Watch.

Hello again everyone!!

Again another long break between posts ... apologies!

I really need to start managing my time properly but in my defence my laptop was broke but it is now finally fixed!

So ... what have I been up to!

Well last night we went to see a fantastic play about the Scottish soldiers fighting in Iraq.

  This is the second time I have been to see this play. I went with my drama class at school in 2007 and fell in love with it.

Really makes you realise what those men and women are fighting for out there.

This was the first time Alan had seen it so I was really excited to see what he thought of it.

Unfortunately we couldn't have gotten worse seats, the stupid girl behind us would not stop talking throughout the entire performance and kept laughing and telling her friends what happened next!

Which completely ruined my whole night.

However, if anyone gets the chance to go and see the play I highly recommend it.

Its a beautiful play and the acting and stage direction is absolutely fantastic!





 Alan wanted a little blog action! :)

The nights are starting to get darker, and the air is getting frosty, winter is definitely here.

So for one last night I got some use out of some summer finds.

Oh and I have a new hair style, was getting bored of the gaga fringe, but it will be back eventually!

What do you think?


To the play I wore these very 70s flared floral trousers, I wish I had found these during the summer as I would have worn them constantly!
I don't think they will catch on but this style of trouser leg is very popular in playsuits at the moment, which I think will be a key look for Christmas parties.

I also wore a little black basic top to slim down the top of my body, at 4'9 I can't afford to look any shorter!

I wore with my nude blazer and my black pashmina to keep me warm in the theatre hall.

I wore a big statement necklace, statement necklaces instantly make any outfit look high fashion, so they are a key accessory of mine.

Finally I took my new little Louis Vuitton bag which I recently bought from a vintage store in Glasgow, I doubt its real but its amazing quality and I still love it.

Hopefully my next post will be tomorrow night!

I am now off college for the week so hopefully I will go on a few adventures!
