OOTD: Seeing my fave band

If i'm going to be specific it has been one month and 23 days since i have had any type of content on my blog. It comes down to the fact i'm just really really lazy! I love reading blogs with daily content and get so jealous when i see super organised bloggers on twitter writing interesting posts and posting most of their outfits, but when i say i like reading these blogs i'm probably sat reading them in my pj's or some holey leggings which lets be truthful is not what anyone needs to see. Basically this is an apology for my lack of updating, i feel stupid saying sorry as i just think who the hell cares but i have still been getting followers even in my dry spell which definitely motivates me, so i'm going to try my best to become a super blogger.

I've had quite a busy social life recently which is rare, i've had a few nights out and had a trip to london the other week which i loved even if i spent most of my time their under london. I can't wait to get back there this week to see BEYONCE!!!! if you can't tell, I'm fairly excited. Before i get to see queen bey though i had this little matter of seeing my favourite boyband for the 11th time. Since i was 12 year old mcfly have ruled my life and it'd feel wrong if i missed any of their tours! I've met up with my friends, who i met through mcfly, every year since 2007 to go and see the boys and we're ever disappointed.

I managed to go a bit goth with my outfit this year and i definitely felt my age waiting in the queue as loads of teenage girls walked past us in teeny tiny shorts and crop tops whilst i stood and complained about the cold!

leather jacket: Internacionale
necklace:New look

I am absolutley loving anything tight and midi at the minute. I can't explain to you how amazing i feel in this skirt and i like the fact i have my leg out even if it is just the bottom half. I'm getting there.

I'll leave you with a video of my favourite song from this years tour, if it doesnt make you happy i don't know what will.

OOTN: inspired

I was on twitter the other day when i spotted a blog link by someone i had been following (@smoofy10), but not seen her blog before so i thought i'd check it out, her blog is and as soon as i went on i knew it was one of the blogs i'd be waiting for more posts from, you know the ones. Her style is basically what i aim for. I know for a fact i'm still hit and miss with some of the things i wear and the outfits i put together but i instantly fell in love with soph's first OOTD and knew i wanted to wear it, i hope it was more of a compliment than a terrifying stalker type gesture.

I had the blazer and the t-shirt, statement necklace was a check and even though i have an array of skater skirts i thought i'd show this neglected one i have from dorothy perkins a bit of love. it felt weird going out in this t-shirt 'cause i sometimes wear it as a pj top when i'm being proper lazy but with the blazer over it totally worked.

blazer: internacionale
t-shirt: Asos
Skirt: Dorothy perkins
shoes: garage
Necklace: new look

I wore this to go for a couple of drinks with my cousin and a friend and by the end of the night, after a couple of vodkas and a dance to 212 i was totally ready to take on the world.
I even carried my cousin out of the club like he-man when her legs malfunctioned (scariest thing ever!) and managed to not fall over. skills.

Fatshionologie blogger style challenege: Floral!

This months fatshionologie theme is floral! Although i had a month to sort out this blog post i am once again falling victim to my own love of leaving everything until the last minute. I thought this theme would be a breeze for me, i thought i was a huge floral fan until i looked in my wardrobe and realised i have 1(!!) item of clothing which is floral and it is the chiffon top which i featured on my blog last year.
This is a sorry state of affairs and one i plan to rectify as soon as payday comes around again. So this months post from me is a lush list of all things floral that i want in my life.
I went to every clothing site i usually use when online shopping and typed 'floral' into the search bar, these are the things which caught my eye

1. White floral peplum top - New look
2.Blue floral and denim shirtdress - H! by henry holland @ Debenhams
3.Baroque Floral Print - Matalan
4.Navy floral tapestry skater dress River island
5.Nail Rock Chelsea Floral Nail Wrap - New look

Fatshionologie is a blogger style challenge born out of a discussion on twitter in the hopes that it would help us create exciting new content for our blogs as well as show that each new style 'theme' can be be rocked by a variety of different body shapes!

See how the other girls involved in the challenge have interpreted this months theme:

OOTD: Spiky denim

The other day my friend Katie was here from the Lake District so we took the opportunity to go on a road trip since she has a cool little old mini which feels like you're being driven round in a baked bean tin but definitely gives the feeling of a proper road trip, we made sure we made a mega playlist (you NEED to hear our rendition of rain on my parade) picked up our other friend Zoe and headed off.

We ended up being so indecisive we made a krispy kreme stop and then ended up driving to three different places before ending up at a wetherspoons at Hexham where we ate until we felt sick and tired and just wanted to go home. Safe to say our spontaneity and imagination needs some working!

Here's what I wore for our brilliant 6 hour journey

denim shirt: internacionale
Navy skater skirt:internacionale
necklace:new look
boots: garage

I've been seeing denim shirts all over but never really thought I'd be able to pull it off or ever be able to make an outfit out of it but I thought I'd get one in this months package from internacionale (where I won a years worth of clothes. HIGH FIVE)
I paired it with this navy skater skirt which is also from internacionale and decided I actually love the way this looks when it's tucked in, I sort of felt like a cowboy.

It felt a bit plain so I stuck on my spiky necklace from new look and I think it just pulls the whole thing together.

I urge anyone thinking about it to add a denim shirt to their wardrobe! You won't regret it.

21 random facts!

I have finally jumped on the bandwagon. When i first started seeing this going around the blogosphere i sat aand tried to think of 20 random facts about myself but i got to about 5 before i thought oh my god how dull and mundane am i?! I didn't think the fact i think cucumbers should be banished from the earth is really something people need to know about me but then i realised i was taking myself far too seriously. I don't think my personality really shines through on my blog at the minute, unlike my twitter which is a perfect representation of my whinging, materialistic, moaning self, so this will atleast help anyone who reads get to know me a little better, so in the words of kel, awwwwwwh here it goes...

1. I am a youngest child as i have an older brother and sister.
2. I am a huge hypochondriac. I have many ridiculous stories from thinking a nacho had pierced my heart to thinking i had smashed all the bones in my feet in an aerobics class but the adrenaline stopped me from feeling pain.
3. I am a huge mcfly fangirl. I have loved them since i was 13, saw them on tour 10 times and i once met them and told dougie he was my favourite before telling the rest of them i liked them too.
4. I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks. I self diagnosed myself with social anxiety before having it confirmed by a doctor.
5. My mam said to my art teacher 'give her a couple of toilet roll tubes and she'll make anything' I like to believe this is still true and want to thank neil buchanan for this talent.
6.My absolute favourite tv show is the office usa. This is what made me develop a weird crush on steve carell.
7.I am a personal shopper. Sadly this means i do peoples online grocery shopping for them. Glamorous.

8. I have the word smile tattooed on my wrist. one of my favourite quotes is 'don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened'
9. I still have the same group of friends that i've had since i was 14, some of them i've known since we were 6. I couldn't live without them.
10. I have never seen Bambi.
11. Kelly osbourne is my favourite person since watching the osbournes when it aired. I just love her attitude, confidence and style.
12. I have 3 nephews, Charlie, Finlay and Jackson (who hates me)
13. I once chucked a drink at a man in a nightclub who was being a horrible nasty person and ran and hid behind some bins. i felt guilty the whole of the next day.
14. I absolutely love graphic design and would love to pursue it as a career.
15. I am a registered organ donor. One day i'd like to give blood once i get over my fear.

16. My friend once stabbed me in the head with a pen at a party.
17. My bedroom is my pride and joy. I remember all the crazy ideas i had for my bedroom when i was younger (inflatable furniture anyone?) but my parents never quite understood but now it is perfect and shows off my personality perfectly.
18. one of my favourite things to do is singing. I love going in the shower just cause i know i have a chance to get my adele on.
19. I am obsessed with keys and plan on getting one tattooed on my collar bone.
20. I have only ever met one other celebrity and that was simon amstell, who i adore and i continued my 'weird girl meeting my idols' awkwardness by shouting at him 'I've been waiting for this since popworld!'
& of course, 21. cucumbers should be banished from existence.

and there we have it. god knows what those facts say about me but it's a little insight.

Fatshionologie blogger style challenge: Bargain!

It's snowinggggggggggggg!
You can tell is january since most of the country is covered in the white stuff. My birthday is at the end of the month and I've woken up to a white birthday a few times so I don't think we'll be seeing the back of it anytime soon.
I chucked on a quick outfit to go play out in the snow with my youngest nephew, Jackson and weirdly I chose to wear jeans which is something I never do, they are my ultimate last resort but I knew I'd be wearing my Wellies so they wouldn't look too bad!

This months Fatshionologie theme is 'bargain'. An outfit that we managed to put together for £15 or under. I know a few of the ladies will most likely be showcasing what they got at the clothes swap but sadly I have a shopping ban on myself over January so even a £15 outfit was a task for me. The only things in my snowy day outfit that weren't christmas present's are my jeans, top and fur collar, which was my sisters unwanted christmas gift which she gave to me, so I think I can definitely call this outfit a bargain.

Top - select
Coat - George @ asda
Wellies - matalan (perfect for my fat calves!)
Watch - asos

Jackson even decided to stop playing and have a little photoshoot with me! Or at least I forced him too, he definitely loves the snow as much as me, we couldn't get him back in the house.
He was looking stylish in wooly bobble hat I'm sure you'll all agree.
