Hey guys, sorry about the delay between the last and this post. I had like four exams last week so everything was busy and then my sister's wedding on sunday (which is very lovely and I have pictures of details on my instagram). I had a lot of difficulty finding lyrics for this post because I've just been listening to Grimes and London Grammar whilst revising recently, but I've also recently gotten into listening to the wonderful Foxes and this title is relatable. Letting go is hard but often it's the right thing to do and you'll be better for it, being all deep. Do what makes you happy and try to do nothing else.

In my last post I featured a bag from Banggood but the one today (also from banggood) is even better, it's amazing. I just love this outfit. It's a bit punky, a bit weird and I have had some very odd looks when walking around in this. One of my friends when I was out in this on Friday said something like 'People look you up and down a bit puzzled and then seem to go "oh, ok"' which I like.
 I guess dressing a bit weirdly gives me a thicker skin. I get comments, I get stares and weird or dirty looks but that's ok. I'm doing what I like and dressing how I feel comfortable. Some people feel their most comfortable in jeans and a t  shirt and that's good if that's them, but I personally feel really uncomfortable in jeans and a t shirt. It's all preference and what makes you happy. I also do get lovely comments from the likes of you guys and I try to make sure I hear those over the negative comments and dirty looks because you guys help me remember I'm doing what I feel is right for me. I wouldn't dress like this if I didn't want to, it's not for show or attention, I honestly just love what I wear and wear what I love. Though some of the weird comments I get do make me laugh, people can be so silly sometimes.



Coat and Boots - Carboot// Shirt - Topshop// Leggings - Ebay// Bag c/o Banggood
Now onto this bag, I'm in love with it honestly. I feel like a black and white bowser or a dinosaur in this, they also do it with red, green, blue, yellow and black spikes. It'r really sturdy, I was carrying some shoes along with some other stuff in it the other day and it was completely full and felt fine. And because this bag is designed to be round it still looks good when you stuff if full of stuff. Aand it's pretty waterproof, I wore it out in the rain when I first got it and my stuff stayed dry inside.
The bad has a main pocket and then two really deep side pockets on the side which are lines with a plastic material which is kind of crinkly the spikes are made of a smooth plastic and they stay up on their own unless you squash them. It is honestly such a cool bag, and for only £10.12 I think it's amazing.
I also have a whole load of discounts for banggood here.

I also got this jacket for £1 at the car boot, yes £1. The guy I bought it off laughed at me but I didn't care. It's comfy, it fits, its super cool and it cost me £1. I also got the boots for £10, got home to find they were fake but they seem pretty good quality and they're a really cool print. Ahh this has turned out quite a long post, should be updating more soon when exams are coming to an end. Hope you're all having a lovely week and thank you for reading

I need to let it go, let it go

Hello all, how ya doing? I'm so glad I went outside today it was glorious... though a little too hot. I felt like I was baking a bit but it wasn't actually 'that' hot, but for the Uk it was (at 23 degrees C). First time I've had my legs out this year and it felt great. Though for some reason as soon as I'm not wearing tights guys think they can treat me like an object, it's disgusting. Two guys walked past my just staring at my chest and then another pair, whilst I was standing against a wall trying to put my stuff away, we're talking about basically grabbing me and fucking me from behind... whilst I was in ear shot. Me showing some skin *shock horror!* doesn't mean that I suddenly don't get the be treated with respect thank you very much ass holes. Anyway, rant over.
The title is purely because I'm listening to this song as I write this post now and just chilling. I procrastinated all day and I know I'm going to regret that next week and I have four exams... but what's done is done. Oops. Anyway, I got very excited today when I received one of my packages from banggood which was an awesome transparent purple bag.  I have a review of that at the bottom of this post, for now, on with the ootd!



Shirt - Topshop// Harness Belt - Missguided// Skirt - H&M (old)// Shoes - Debenhams// Bag c/o BangGood//
 Now onto this super cool bag. I've been meaning to get one like this for a while and I've seen a lot on Ebay that I'm not sure I trust... so when I saw this one I just had to get it! It's only £6.17 and seems a lot sturdier than I excpected, I've had plastic bags before that you could just tell were gonna break as soon as you out anything in them but this one seems like it's pretty well made. Not saying you could put your lifes possesions in it... it's not super super strong but it's not going to break easily 
It has two zips going into a small front pocket and one bit one at the back, with adjustable straps on the top and back. What I found cool was the fact the straps are lined with like foam so it's reinforced. You can also get this bag in black, pink, green and orange. 
I think I'm going to buy a cheap drawstring bag to go inside because I've seen people do that before and it looks super cool, plus it means people can't see all your stuff which can get a bit messy sometimes...

Hope you enjoyed this post! I only have like a month left of exams so after that I will make sure I am super super busy posting stuff for you guys, but until then I'll post when I can. Thanks for reading.

Hey guys. I have realised I never say hi so thought I should. Anyway, the lack of updates is unintended, I just have exams coming up and it's been suuuper windy so I haven't been able to go out and take photos. So I did something I've actually never done before and did a bit of a face of the day.
I've been procrastinating recently by spending ages doing massive eyeliner, and I'm really liking it and I'm getting quicker too. So extreme amounts of eyeliner and a stand out lipstick is now a thing for me. 

 I actually found an all right angle to take photos with my camera from so that was something I did today. i've also become slightly in love with my hair curled. I'm considering a perm but I dunno, maybe I'll just pin curl it at night or something. 
So for my face today we have:
This has got virtually all of my favourite products in, but i don't have too many products so I pretty much always wear my faves.
You guys know I love macro photos so here are some close ups of my face. Harder to take than they seem.
I like the hair shot the most, might have t take more photos of my hair soon. It just does so many things that it's brilliant to take photos of.
Hope you enjoyed something a little bit different but not that much. I'm awaiting a package from banggood so I should have some outfit posts up when that arrives. I have a few outfits planned actually, so that is to come, once exams are over I'll make sure to be super super active though. 
Hope the next week is good for everyone, thanks for reading!

FOTD: The Face of Procrastination

I went for a really nice walk yesterday, it was kind of accidental that I walked so far, about 6 miles, but it was just so nice. I walked down to the sea front and then when i got there I just kept on walking along the cliff top path. I forget how many people are there in the summer as I haven't been in years but I have so many happy memories from days out along the sea or at the cliff top park. I just kept on walking until I found a spot to take photos; which ended up being about 5 and a half miles from home. I had to ring my dad and get him to take me back because otherwise I would never have been home in time for tea. 

I've been listening to a lot of different music lately, though they all seem to be female artists. That isn't intentional it just sort of happened. But I quite like Ariana Grande's new song, though I'm not a fan of Iggy Azalea I must admit. But hey, the lyrics meant something to me, cause getting negative and toxic people out of your life is sometime a lot of hard work but it's worth it in the end.

More of a simple outfit today, it's comfy and perfect to revise in so it's what I've worn a lot lately.

Tries something slightly different with the editing, just playing around with different settings. I seemed to have chronic bitchface or an 'oh so deep' face in these photos and the need to stick my stomach out but c'est la vie. You're never going to get anything right and perfect, I want to do more experimental and edity photos next time; if that makes any sense.
Thank you guys for reading.
