Not Just For Christmas

Jumper - Vintage . High Waisted Jeans - Topshop . 

Im not going to lie i have been meaning to post about this jumper since Christmas but the weather has been so poo recently i am still living in winter therefore it is an acceptable post in my eyes...maybe only my eyes...

I could lie and tell you all that this is my most recent pertache from Rokit or some other Vintage shop that i often go in and spend my life saving on but i cannot...
So this jumper is not one that you can go out and buy im afraid; this was my dads 'Christmas Jumper' before i was born, and after i was born, and when i was a child, teenager and so on until i nabbed it and ran away to London with it! Muhahaha.
It is pretty worn but i bloody love it! 
I just wanted to show the world my love for this jumper, that is all...It may be a tad Christmassy but it is so comfy and perfect in this cold weather! 
I have paired it up with my new navy high waisted jeans from Topshop!

So i am currently in the process for spending my summer working at Camp America! I think i may have left it a little late but i pray that i am not and that i can still go! It is all a waiting game now! :S I will inform you of progress over time!

Ruby Who?

 . Shirt - eBay . Skirt - Topshop . Jumper - Jack Wills . 
 . Faux Fur Coat - Vintage . 

. Lipstick - Mac - Ruby Woo (Matte Collection) . 

So this lipstick is from MAC and is part of the Matte Collection. It means that it does not have a shine on which is a alternative to other lipstick which have a shine, this is due to the dryness of it but this helps it stay on super well! It is a flattering blue based red that not only looks good on almost everyone, but it also makes teeth look brighter which is always a good thing! I am quite pale so worried it would be too much but i absolutely love it and it is always at the top of my make up bag! I would recommend that you prep your lips before hand as it is not good with dry lips! When applying the lipstick for best results use a pencil lipliner to draw the outline first, this make a very crisp and clear outline and the can be filled in with much more ease when adding the Ruby Woo! It is great for keeping on a long time and never smudges although in my opinion is not great on a long night out as it is rather dry and does not feel great after a few hours on the old razzle dazzle!

My top is eBay's finest which i got brand new from hong hong for approximately £8, cant be too sure on the price...what am i like. The jumper, Jack Wills...splashed out before christmas. Mustard is one of my fave colours and when i saw this i had to have it...even though it was from the mens section and way out of my price range...dont judge me, i had a discount code!
You will be getting sick of me wearing this skirt but i cannot give them enough praise! The Topshop Skater Skirts are my life and now living with my cousin we have 5 between us in all different colours all in the same size! dont you love having someone to share clothes with! We literally live in each others wardrobes! 
ya da ya da yada...Faux Fur Coat from before...Vintage and MINE! After getting it handed down from my Great Auntie Anna!

Last day of London Fashion Week today and i am ashamed to say i did not attend or do anything of the sort! Shame on me living in London on a gap year and not attending...i apologise... :')

P.S i am sorry for the appalling state of my hair and face in the pictures...i have no excuse...

Happy Half Term for Anybody who get it!

Scrap the Memories

. Scrapbook - Paperchase £8 . Prints - Printstagram - $12 for 48 . Photo Edges - eBay £2.95 per 108 . 

For a long time now i have been meaning to start a Scrap Book with all different pictures from the past few years that i can look back on in years to come and remember the people and good times in all the different places i have been. When i heard from other blogs about Printstagram...pretty self explanatory  "We print your Instagram pictures" i felt it was the perfect idea! And due to my Instagram addiction i have to say i was not short of pictures to choose from! They are so easy to order because you literally just log in and wolah all of your pictures are there to choose from! 

They are available in two different sizes; i went for the smaller ones to get more for my money...tight wad. But they are such a cute little size and fit perfectly in my scrapbook. My Scrapbook i got from Paperchase and the picture edges, eBay! I am so in love with the result of it! And cant wait to add more memories to in as time goes on! 

As i progress with my scrapbooking i will keep you informed but for now here is a taster...

"We didn't realize we were making memories, we just knew that we were having fun."

Vintage Rose

 So i have been on the look out for a silk shirt for a while now and a vintage one to be picky. I love visiting Camden...not for the famous market but Rokit! My fave vintage shop! Its not bad price wise and is not one of them 'Vintage' shops which has loads of old clothes, but not good old, used old where you have to rake through a hundred things to find one star everything in Rokit is good...i know sweeping statement but i do love it!

 Anyway i got this shirt in the Sale things can go out of fashion in a Vintage store is beyond me...It is an ivory silk with blue roses on and green colours. As soon as i saw it i was in love! right up my street and after doing the whole "do i need it?" + "can i afford it?" + "what will i wear it with?" i finally gave in after leaving the shop and returning at the end of the day on the way back to the tube hehe.
It was originally £30 but was reduced to £15 therefore i didn't feel so bad about it...
Anyway i have not taken it off since!

Sorry for not posting in a runs away with you sometimes, thats why its called the human race
