Hey guys I'm back with some photos I took last week, sorry for the lack of posts if your a student you will understand that right now we are all waiting for the other part of the student loan to come through, to be able to live. I haven't had that much money this month so I haven't been able to do my hair or even buy make up. It is quite funny how little things like this can knock your off your blogger tracks. I was on a roll last month and now in April it has come to a standstill. The weather down here is sunny and quite warm however living by the sea you always have that chilly wind about, so thats why I have opted out to wear socks and sandals combo. I don't care what anyone says I managed to get this pair for a £1 in H&M the other brothers had been stolen in the pack, aww. I have started a sandals collection and these I picked up on my journey to McArthur Glen Shopping Outlet from Next, they are super comfy and have a low heel so are easy to walk in. The Printed Kimono is from an online store called Yoins and recently I have been tying up shirts and jackets in this style to get the whole Seventies vibe to the outfit. Obviously if your going to get your tummy out it has to be a little bit toned right? Thats why now I'm hitting the gym to tone up, so I feel more comfortable in wearing summer clothes.
Hope you have all enjoyed Easter, I can't wait to start working at Uni again, thats a Virgo for you!

Lots of love,

I'm back

Sorry guys for the disappearance and lack of posts, I have been enjoying the Easter holidays far too much. Well basically I started the gym after realising how bored I've become, sitting in my room eating unhealthy junk and constantly worrying about everything. I am trying to go four times a week now and I know I am small already but I am hoping to gain muscle mass instead. By trying to bulk up on good healthy foods, eating regularly and sticking to a consistent routine. I can tell you I have never felt so contented and happy for a while, the endorphins released from exercising is so rewarding that is basically why I want to keep it up. I have a couple of gym buddies that eased me into the scary gym environment, which at first was daunting, a skinny girl like myself attempting to squat with weights and such, you will get odd looks from everyone. I was and am still nervous, but I know it will all pass soon. 

Anyway on my rest days I like to relax and either do my uni work and then watch a TV series called Orphan Black, I recently discovered whilst searching about Baudrillard Simulacra Theory on Youtube. It started in 2013 and I don't want to give much away but the main actress is Tatiana Maslany and she witnesses a women who looks exactly like her commit suicide in front of her and I'm not going to reveal any more. It is a definite must see TV series, it is filmed and directed so well and Tatiana's acting is superb. 

You can find the whole series online, if you want to know the website email me, as I don't want it to get blocked if I blog about it. The next season is coming out soon in America I think, don't know if I'll be able to watch it over here in the UK just yet, but we'll wait and see. 

I am onto the second season that came out in 2014 and I am in love with the character 'Sarah's' grungy, biker style. This is a style I tend to wear when I'm not blogging or following trends. I love a good leather jacket and a pair of boots. I bought some from Primark but they have worn away and a couple of years ago I bought another great rustic looking pair, that I had worn to death. So I've been browsing online for a pair of Dr Marten boots on Union Jack Boots online store. 

1. Blue Check Shirt- NEW LOOK/ 2. Black Biker Jacket- NEW LOOK/ 3. Wet Look Leggings- NEW LOOK/ Triumph 1914 Black Dr Marten Boots- UNION JACK BOOTS

Not only have I been binging out on watching Orphan Black, I also went to sees Fast and Furious 7 at the Cinema with a couple of girl friends. Now people say its a guy film but come on it's really about the hunky men right? Well since I've watched about three of the movies I've fallen in love with the kick ass female actors. I think Michelle Rodriguez character 'Letty' is very similar to the character 'Sarah' in Orphan Black, even the actresses look the same right? Dark hair and brown eyes.

 
Love these Brown Biker Boots

Hat- TOPSHOP/ Blouse- MISS SELFRIDGE/ Leggings- NEW LOOK/ Sunglasses- PRIMARK/ Bag- ACCESSORIZE/ Socks- PRIMARK/ Heels- NEXT/ Scarf- OSPREY LONDON/ Phone Case- FOSSIL

Hey guys so after being invited to McArthur Glen Shopping Outlet, we were set the challenge to style accessories found in stores at the Outlet. It was quite difficult because you had to think what clothes you've currently got in your wardrobe that would match them. I went with a retro paisley scarf from Osprey London, Snake Print Heel Sandals from Next and a Retro Phone Case from Fossil. I wanted to make sure the accessories I chose matched the current 70s trend. I've had loads of compliments already about the scarf, Osprey London do some really unique pieces. The heels were so cheap if you worried about buying new things to be on trend, you don't have to splurge out on a £30 pair of heels. When putting this outfit together though I think it would have looked so much better with a pair of denim flares, rather than these camel coloured leggings newly bought from New Look. When I tried them on in the changing rooms it was fairly dark and they made my legs look great. But you have to realise that skin coloured leggings or trousers can cause a bit of a problem, now I regret buying them. Hope your all having a lovely Easter so far, I've got so much work to do this holidays.

Lots of love,

McArthur Glen Bridgend

1 comment
On Saturday I got invited to McArthur Glen Shopping Outlet in Bridgend along with my current Blogger bud, Oroma. We got an early train to Bridgend station then a taxi to the Outlet which wasn't long at all.
We were given vouchers to spend in the Outlet Stores and was given the task to find the best Accessories to style. Oroma had never been there before but I had so I knew my way around. 

We both began by browsing in all of the stores, it looks like they are aimed at an older generation and there are lots of Outdoor Activity Shops if you needed to buy stuff to go on Holiday, like Suitcases e.t.c. But if you look really closely and have the patience you can find some real gems. I think Oroma preferred the Sports Shops on her hunt for Trainers that she likes to wear. 

There were some lovely bags on sale in Clarks Outlet and some real nice pure leather pieces if you prefer to buy real leather than faux.


My favourite shop was the Ted Baker Outlet and Whittard of Chelsea Tea Shop.


We both decided to go and have some food in the Food Court and think about what we would like to buy. I went with noodles from the Chopstix Noodle Bar.


Easter was definitely in the air at McArthur Glen with this cute selection of Bunny Cake Candles at the Yankee Candle shop which smell beautiful. Oh and the cute cupcakes in the food court by Millies Cookies looked too good to eat.


Oroma and I both got a selection of four cupcakes to take back on the journey home, they were the best I've ever tasted mmmhmm.


On the train home we were both so tired, Oroma managed to buy three expensive things and yet I bought lots of little things and ended up coming home with loads of bags. I wanted to find Accessories to match outfits with and also lots of Lifestyle and Home Decor because I was thinking of starting Lifestyle Blogging soon.


The managers and shop assistants were a bit suspicious of us taking photos of the Store even though we explained what we were Bloggers of the day, that is why most of my photos are taken via my iPhone instead. 

Here is what I bought:

-Dolce by Dolce Gabbana 75ml bottle  from The Fragrance Shop (which is my all time favourite Spring Scent) Retail price: £64.99 Outlet price: £64 with a Free Gift, Si Sample Set by Giorgio Armani
