Kind of an ins and outs, but I think my last couple of blog posts amount to enough outs!

Xfactor – Ahh I’m hopelessly addicted.
And my favourite? Lucie Jones... I love love love this girl. From the moment I saw her first audition she reminds me of Bella. I know it’s not a Twilight look-alike contest but I genuinely think she has talent and that something special about her, and her style is casual but chic :)

Urban Decay Grifter and Last Call- I’ve been wearing these shades together tons recently. I like the sparkle and according to the colour wheel, purple is the shade for me…green eyes and all that.

Car boot sale- Me and my boyfriend went again this weekend, he did somewhat better than me, he managed to pick up some vinyl’s, and I must admit the more I rummage through tatty cardboard boxes full of a whole variety of vinyl, I’m beginning to see the appeal.

I was much swayed by a Mr Frosty ice making machine, but that’s another story.
I did however pick up this beauty…Jessie from Toystory!!!

I’ve been wanting this toy forever and I’m a sucker for old school Toystory merchandise. She even has a little stand that talks, not bad for £1!

Fellow Bloggers

Sorry for a gap in posts- again not feeling too inspired lately. However as I have said many times before, when I don’t post, it doesn’t mean I don’t come back and read.
In fact I find more interesting and insightful things on here, than I seem to do in my magazines.

After having a bit of a youtube binge, (I’m sure it’s not just me) I decided it would be nice to talk about some of my favourite bloggers & youtubers. It’s not really a tag, as I know a lot of you have done this before, and I don’t have a clue how to copy and past urls! I’m rubbish. So let it just simply be a nice way to just give some compliments if nothing else :)

PandaDoesMakeup –
When I first started blogging, one of my earliest recollections was this girl,
; I’m still as enthralled as I once was.

Zoella -
The superstar. She’s so informative and passionate about her blog, a real inspiration.

Stuff: noun. Meaning “a collection of random things”.
I adore her blogposts, there always creative and detailed. She’s intriguing and genuine.

When I watch her videos I just feel so inspired, she seems so confident. She is so passionate about make-up, beauty, and life itself.

The hauls are always extravagant and exciting. I love how she loves Hello Kitty.

So bubbly and genuine. A real delight to watch.

Pinksealight- My oldest friend.

Things don’t change overnight, and not much has happened, nor seems to be happening. When I say this I mean I haven’t found a job.
This situation seems all too familiar from last year; the lead up to Christmas, technically there should be plenty of jobs around. As people constantly tell me, there are simply no jobs at the moment, were in a recession, it doesn’t make it any easier to cope with.

A lot of the time I shy away from talking about personal matters, but I feel that right now this might be the best way to somewhat vent my frustration. If someone had told me that I would be in this situation by the time I’m 20, then I know for sure I would have done everything I could to have prevent this from happening.

My qualifications aren’t special but I have a decent set of GCSE’s, a couple of A levels, and a qualification in Art. But it seems little help, I know now that particularly my higher education qualifications are completely in inappropriate subjects, that I am seriously regretting choosing.

It got close to a point in July/August were I was considering going back to education, either college again or university. So much doubt in my mind and subsequently not a clearing place for me, I’m back at square one.

These past weeks I’ve been applying to so many jobs, yet I haven’t had one single response. I guess sometimes you just have to be patient in life, but I know that the longer I remain in this situation, the more unhappy and discontent I am. It’s difficult to be around people, do the normal everyday things, because the one thing I want more than anything I can’t have.

I get so angry and frustrated, I cry into my boyfriends arms, yet I just can’t seem to accept it, it’s difficult for me to talk about without getting upset, and sometimes I wonder why I let it upset me so much, but unless you have been here, you really don’t know what it’s like.

A mixed up feeling at the moment. I know there’s some creativity left in me somewhere.

Style Icon 3: Carrie Bradshaw

Carrie Bradshaw

Slightly predictable but o so fabulous it would be a crime not to have her in my list.

Sometimes considered a victim but always at the centre of fashion, Carrie just has the ability to wear whatever she wants and not have a single care in the world. Whether it is dungarees, Dior or even dangerously outrageous costumes. I hope there’s a Carrie Bradshaw within us all. It goes beyond the clothes, it’s the confidence, and the ability to mix and match the most unsuspecting items.

She loves her designers, but at the same time is as content sporting a vintage summer dress.

The corsage became a statement, and that shoe company, what was it again… Manolo Blahnik was given one hell of a shout out.

This girl is fearless. And has THE closet to die for...

Straight Forward

Lately more so than ever I seem to be feeling so negative.

I did the college thing, and at present it seems I’ve ended up nowhere :(
I’ve not written for the past week, and my blog is something I enjoy and take much pleasure out of writing, creating and communicating with other people, that I felt I owed you some sort of explanation.

Sometimes I just wish it was simple, that we all knew which jobs we would end up with and which we wouldn’t. That when you go to a job interview you automatically get the job, and you don’t have to hear that you weren’t good enough.
I feel such a failure, like I’ve had my chance at making something of myself. Part of me just doesn’t have a clue anymore what to do.

Smells Like…

I have always been fond of perfume, just something about it, I’ve been there bought the celebrity scents right from the start, beginning with a certain Ms Lopez, bought into the sought after collections, the list is endless…However my favourite scent right now is

Velvet Hour – Kate Moss

They always say don’t judge a book by its cover and I must say, this is so true here. Normally I’m attracted to perfume brands rather than the ‘celebrity fragrance’ as it seems. I appreciate Kate Moss, in her career as a model, but other than that I’m not overly fussed. She’s an icon of the 21st century, but not a specific inspiration to me.

So it was complete random that I came across this perfume, the smell is so strong and draws you in. It’s very distinctive, and I sometimes feel like it is the perfect night time fragrance, sexy and seductive, but I often wear it through the day time and still feel as refreshed.

The price tag is really reasonable too; this is the only perfume I have ever purchased more than once, so that must be a good sign. I got a whopper 100ml bottle for less than £20 not so long ago
