what did santa bring me this year ?

so this year Christmas has been amazing , and what made it even more fantastic was the fact that i got to go to France and spend some quality time with my family , it was so lovely to just get away from England for a few days and my mum decided that i deserved a trip to Paris so that was part of my Christmas present :)  yaaaaaaaaay me !

             this was the view outside my window before i left for the airport the next day , a white Christmas indeed

                             pictures of myself and my lovely baby niece , my sister took them when i wasn't looking

         coat- milano , bag- Matalan ( i think ) , top-H&M ( worn inside ) , shoes- new look , bow- primark (worn in hair )

whilst on our little family break , my mum took the opportunity to buy me some jewelry for my Christmas present and i managed to get myself french glamour and french cosmo :) i really enjoyed reading it in the warmth of home with the rest of my family .

an other haul and i dash out

i didn't plan on buying anything today , but somehow i ended up in town in make up heaven ( awwwwwwwwwww ) so i managed to grab this  palette , i thought the colours were great and its not just eye shadows , but lips and cheeks too ( bonus ) .

i also got a lipgloss ( I'm so addicted to lip products ) and false eyelashes which i tried on and really liked :)

i do have two rimmel glosses similar to the one i got ( different flavours obviously ) and they taste sooo yum , i think ill do a tasty lipgloss post very soon
also these lashes are great as they are pre-glued and i always find it so hard to put on false eyelashes especially with the glue , things get too messy and sticky way too quickly looool 

here before i dash out , took some pictures of my look , unfortunately i didn't use my camera as i was being very lazy , i used photobooth instead and you cant tell but I've used my new w7 palette and i am wearing the lashes .

hope you dolls are having a great evening

off to uni i go !! ootd and 1 item haul

this post is being written from the library ( at least I'm using my laptop looool ) i have to apologise for the  bad quality pictures , i was in a hurry to get to uni that i just thought ill use photobooth quickly after all its bad quality but when time is concerned i guess it gets the work done fast :)

so this week has been such a crappy week for me , i had a massive issue with submitting an essay electronically and then only realised on the day that i had a test so no revision was done before hand , and I'm sort of glad that this week has come to an end ( i never have any lectures what so ever on Fridays so i start my weekend early looool yaaaay me !!! ) . so after my depression and the crappy weather we've been experiencing didn't help , i decided to treat myself to something . so i got myself this lovely jumper at a vintage store :)

you may not know this , but I'm one of those people  who actually don't have a winter wardrobe , so i just layer up my summer clothes in winter and that's about it , however this year I've had a cold 4 times already so that's a sign telling me to get myself a proper winter wardrobe and cover up and keep warm.

jumper- vintage , belt- primark , jumpsuit- Camden market , gloves vintage , bracelet- present , bag - select , necklace- Paris , black scarf - primark

my outfit today was inspired ( actually copied , a total rip off looool ) by  Jacqueline over at Platform Princess i really love her style she's one of my favourite blogger :) Click Here  for the post which i was inspired by :)

you are beautiful , my darlings its a fact

                                                                      image taken from google

going trough other people's blogs , tumblr pages , facebook pages , youtube videos and so on . i always comment on people's pages and say things like " you are so beautiful" and majority of times it makes me wish that i was just as pretty , beautiful and attractive as them . however its a myth !!!! really , all of us are beautiful but we just don't see or believe it . take this example :

 i have my many insecurities , there are days where i find myself feeling unattractive , or days in which i hate my nose and think its too big , or days in which i think I'm too fat , or bones on top of bones , however i still get comments on my blog saying I'm pretty or beautiful and I'm sure some of the people commenting felt the same way in which i feel when i comment on others pages .

too be honest , there is no need to be envious of other's looks or wish you were just as pretty as they are because if we only get past our own insecurities we will come to realise that we really are beautiful

and i think the next time you go on someone else's page , blog , youtube , tumblr  why not leave them a nice comment like " i think you are really pretty " and this time instead of feeling bad about yourself , feel the joy in knowing that you are beautiful in your own rights and the comment you are leaving is going to make the next person feel just as beautiful and good about themselves as you do , and lets share this love around so that every girl can feel just as beautiful as they truly are :)

the last rays may light your way

so this Sunday with all its glory , after church my lovely sister decided to take me around some of her favourite furniture and decor stores ( as i want to decorate my room ) but i have so many ideas that i cant organise them all in one big idea .

anyways the sun was out so i decided to do some shopping  and oh my !!! some great finds i found :) not furniture or anything , but clothes :D  .
i love buying  vintage clothes , fair trade/charity shops clothing as it makes me feel like I'm doing my bit for the environment  :D after all recycling is great for the environment and can be super stylish ;D .

                                                                here's a quick outfit of the day :)

                                                                       blazer - jane norman
                                                                   dress - present from besty
                                                                         wedges - new look
                                                                        bag - etheal austines

about the items i got , i went to Bernardo ( the children's charity ) shop and the clothes in there are old stocks or faulty clothing from popular high street stores . i ended up getting this white blazer which is size 20 , however this didn't bother me as i just loved the cut and the fact that i didn't have a white blazer just pushed me to purchase this .

also i got a pair of  trousers which have been  on my wish list for a while now , but being a student and a very poor one , i refused to pay a ridiculous amount of money for a pair of trousers. so when i found the perfect pair  in my size and in black , i just had to get them :D

apart from that i had a great weekend and with the sun making a rare appearance , i can honestly catching some of the last rays was the perfect end to a lovely weekend :)

so how was your weekend ? xoxo

in order to grow change must take place

sitting on my bed wearing a dress i had purchased 2 years ago , i reminisce of the past 2 years . these two years I've managed to gain and loose friends as well as weight . I've managed break hearts as well as get my heart broken . I've learnt to care and not care ( depending on the situation) . Ive learnt to let go of things which had no positive impact  on my life and hold on to those which did . i guess i can say that I've grown a lot throughout these 2 years ( not in height though  I'm still 5"3" ) .

and yet there's still more to see , more growing to do , more to feel . i get a rush just thinking of it , a mixture of emotions , excitement , fear , joy , sadness , curiosity . and even though I'm excited to get to see , do , taste , feel the future , I'm also secretly hopping that time would flow as slow as slow can be , just so i can really take in this moment .

its funny looking in the mirror and not just seeing the same old girl from 2 years ago staring back at you , instead an improved version  stares back at you . this time 2 years ago  there were things i wanted to achieve , and now that I've gotten what i wanted , i don't want to forget what it took to get it , the journey , whether good or bad , the tears , the laughter , the support as well as the let downs, the constant worry , the stress , the phone calls and text messages . the not knowing what tomorrow will bring and yet still have that gut feeling that all will somehow fall into place , not one bit i want to forget . and as I'm writing this , I'm also thinking of new things I'd like to achieve in the next 2 years to come and i just hope i don't loose my way .

if you're wondering , i got this dress 2 years ago when i went shopping for a dress for presentation evening ( an evening in which you are presented with you're GCSE/ A level certificates and your academic achievements are celebrated )  with my then friend ( i guess you loose those not worthy of you whilst growing up and finding ourselves ) and i was determined to find a sweet girly dress and yet elegant enough for the evening as i didn't want to look like all the other girls wearing tight dresses or club wear ( I'm not really into skin tight dresses ) i love this dress so much , it was the perfect thing to wear then . I'm hoping to make it to presentation evening this year in order to get my A level certificates and if i do , i have no idea what to wear this time -_-

do you have any future goals ? if yes what are they ? and what has changed in the past two years ?
