Bargain of the Year.








I should sue the dentist who done my braces, teeth are a bloody mess. Hiya Adult Braces!
Does anyone have them?
How expensive is it?

When I got home from Gala yesterday I headed out to throw CVs at every shop hiring, fingers crossed something comes up! I am so skint just now, like everyone else in January I can't barely afford to eat let alone enjoy myself. But on the wander I spotted £5 on the ground (I ALWAYS find money, and always seems to happen when I'm really skint lol) so after I had a look around to see if anyone could have dropped it no one was around, so on opening the £5 note it was actually 2 £5 notes YES! So I went to buy some violet shampoo as I couldn't afford to buy a new one (I am so white trash at the moment)

Then me and my mum ran some errands about town. We headed into this little charity shop near my house which I never knew was there, and on walking in the door I spotted this bike! I've been after a bike for ages now but they are so expensive so when I spotted the £3 sticker on it I bought it there and then. (YES £3!!!!!!!!!!!!) Literally the best bargain I have ever got!
The plan now is to paint it pink and get some wicker baskets for the front and back! <3

I also nabbed this little plastic basket bag for 20p and the little Long Champ-Esq bag for 50p.
Best charity shop ever! 

On Thursday night one of the Girls had a wig party for her 21st, I couldn't afford a wig so I was a wee bore and couldn't play along, however the rest of the girls looked fantastic and we had such a fun night, not something I usually say for Gala.

I wore this dress which I have had for years but only turned it to a size 6 from a 12 a few weeks ago so this was its first outing. I really like it, I'm not usually one for one shouldered things but somehow on this dress it works. But my sewing skills need some more worse as it burst 10mins into the night, nightmare.

Bouncy Hair.

This post took bloody ages. I hate the stupid slow Internet here!

I'm running so late for a wig party for one of my floor mates turning 21, I can't afford a wig though so I have tried to make my hair look as bouncy as possible, I actually like it though.

I love this dress, well actually it might be a top because its really short. I got it on ebay after a bidding war which I was not losing, I was literally in the cinema seeing a film bidding on this dress, ahh the wonders of technology!

I have this week entered The River Island Style Insider Competition.
To feature in Company's Real People Edit.
So if you wanted to give me a wee vote it would be lovely

Last week the uni had a Geek vz Chavs night at one of the clubs in Gala. So after originally deciding I was going to go as a Goth so I was "Non Conformist" aka I want to try out my new Black Lipstick. Anyways ended up being lazy and just went as a geek, I would wear this anyway minus the glasses, so yeah really lazy.

Another weekend back home, my roommate it so good at convincing me not to stay in Gala! So anyways I am absolutely sick to the back teeth of not having a job, not only for having some money, but I really miss having a job and somewhere to go and having people to talk to. So the CV is all written up and ready to be dispatched! Wish me luck!!

I'm checking the H&M website everyday in the vain hope the one of the hundreds of H&Ms in Glasgow will soon be looking for staff. I'd love to work for H&M because I love the company so much, River Island too. I'd avoid Topshop because I can't really shop there on my budget so I'm constantly in a price battle with them, but I still think Topshop is an amazing British company which has helped to completely change the British High street, and British fashion, but still If I worked there I would want to work in the head office rather than be a sales assistant or something, because I'd just want loads of stuff I couldn't have :( I'd also LOVE to work for a Scottish Fashion brand! The prospect of potentially moving to England has seriously made me realise how much I love this country and how proud I am of it (That doesn't mean there is anything wrong with England! England's fine!) So working with a Scottish brand like Cruise would be amazing. Glasgow in Particular is becoming so influential in the fashion world, for years huge companies such as Chanel and Vivienne Westwood have worked with tiny Scottish Mills to source leather, cashmere and tartan, something most people probably didn't know about. Finally however Scotland is making waves! With the birth of fantastic designers creating new innovative brands and collections (Chouchou Couture and Obscure Couture) to name the most well know at the moment. Scotland is going to grow and grow in the fashion world and if I could be a part of that, WOW! Ahhh Excitement!

Anyways I decided not to bring any clothes home with me from Gala as I actually have more clothes here that I have there so I bring stuff home and then end up wearing stuff that's already here, its stupid. I found this dress hiding in the back of my wardrobe which I left in there as one of my summer dresses but its fine if I wear it with all black. Its actually a size 10 (I'm a 6 ... 8 at a push) but I wanted it so badly at the time that I just dealt with it, might try to source a smaller one soon.

You can totally see the big square of my back were I can't reach to do my tan. When will someone invent something to solve this? lol!

I hate Uni, and I don't know wither or not to leave. I hate my course its not beneficial at all. I only mention this because I have no Idea what I should do. So I'd love to hear some opinions from people who hate uni, or left and regretted it or stayed and regretted it? I know I only have a 12 weeks left but I wake up every morning absolutely dreading going in. I have no interest, I don't listen, I have no motivation or drive to work, which is so unlike me, I'm one of those people everyone hates who has her work handed in early and goes 397585 words over word count.

I also want to start getting lots of fashion work experience and internships because It would be way more beneficial at this point.

Anyways any help would be appreciated!

I slept in today so this was a 45 min rush out the door ...
Shower/Hair Dry/Hair Extensions/Tan/Make Up/Getting Dressed usually takes about 2 hours ... yes 2 hours, don't start!
However despite being late I had one of those good hair and make up days, typical.

I quite like this kind of look since I seen SJP wear it in SATC The Movie, you know the baggy top over a pleated skirt. Its still stylish but comfortable.

Tiny Shorts.

I haven't mentioned yet but when I was back home at the weekend my laptop broke, so I am currently using my netbook for posts which is annoying as my net book doesn't have an editing feature. I don't really edit my photos other than crop them and lighten them if they are dark ... I'm too lazy to edit.

I found these shorts in my wardrobe today and they follow me about like a bad smell, i'm pretty sure I've thrown them out at leaste 3 times now but somehow they re appear. So from time to time when I'm not in a bad witht them they will get out of the wordrobe. As I had pulled them high today I thought they made my legs look longer, which is what you need when your only 4'8. Then seeing the photos I took this moring I have since changed my mind and they make my legs look awful, back in the bin they go ...

That Leather Pleated Skirt.

Today we headed to IKEA, its no were near as big as I remember it only took us about 2 hours to get around, it seemed so much longer when I was a kid.

Today when I got up I just couldn't be bothered, hence why the hair is pulled up.

I got this skirt for Christmas, its not really something I would normally wear and to be honest I might just put it on EBay now because I don't know what else to wear with it now? 

Everyone is going crazy over my jacket now that I have attached my stole to it. Its the same leather jacket I wear almost every day yet I only get compliments on it now. Everyone keeps saying how expensive and unique it looks, so I'm super chuffed. Just a little change like adding some faux fur can make a huge difference.

 

This is the LLYMLRS skirt that everyone has been going crazy about.
I seen it in Primark months ago and to be honest I wasn't impressed, since then I've obviously seen Lilly wear it and it looks so much more expensive than Primark so today I found one, and I was chuffed.
However ... I went by the hanger rather than the label and its actually a size 14 instead of and 8. FAIL.

I'm a size 6 and its actually not too big on me, since it has an elastic waist band it would be so easy to make smaller.

But I tried it on and it doesn't really suit me.

So I've decided to put it on EBay instead as I knew loads of bloggers were hunting the country for it.


I decided EBay was the safest, easiest and fairest way to get rid of it.

Happy Bidding Guys!

This is what I wore yesterday one route home from Gala. After saying I couldn't come home till my birthday due to having no money at all! I managed to hitch a ride and well jumped at the chance to come home!

My hair like this is amazing as its so easy to wear to bed and I don't have to touch it in the morning. Bonus when I have uni at 9am after a booze fuelled evening the the night before, which I'm getting to old for as I now get hangovers regularly!

This top I have had for ages and I have no idea what prompted me to wear it today? Maybe I was still drunk or something so I didn't care what I threw on, it came out OK in the end though.

As I only decided I was coming home 5 minuets before I left I have literally threw anything in my bag that would fit so god only knows what I have for the weekend.

My sister just passed her driving test so today we are having a sister bonding day trip to Ikea. Like I say I have ZERO funds but we while just run around and maybe she will treat me to a hot dog :)

I am sooooo tired. So this is short and sweet!

I'm not sure about these shorts so this was just a first attempt, but I really don't know how to wear them, maybe they will be better in the summertime rather than now.
