So I have spent my day off (from my holiday job at a well known health and beauty store) watching Youtube beauty vlogs and reading various blogs. I am a shameful girl in that I wear no makeup and until recently have taken very little care over what I wear. I used to live in a uniform of vests, hoodies and jeans. This is a product of having a lovely mum who wears no makeup, has short hair and likes to wear fleeces. Fleeces are (in my opinion) the devil. What I am trying to say is that there is no way I can be a beauty blogger when I use no beauty products and stopped taking photos of myself at the age of 16! Once I work out how to blog with photos I vow to try to include some photos of my favourite outfits though and we shall see which direction this blog takes.
As I am currently on holiday from university I am earning lots of money and doing some very naughty internet shopping. I have recently bought some brown chinos, shorts and brogues so I have been buying lots of floaty creamy tops to go with them and that will hopefully be suitable for teaching placement. I am currently waiting for a New Look order to arrive. New Look in my university town is a fair walk away from the main shops and my ex's ex works there which (stupidly) put me off however I find loads of great things online so when I go back to university I will try and go there more. One of the items I am waiting for are some riding style boots. Now I have been wanting a pair since last winter, a girl from my course who has a Youtube channel (and who doesn't know that I watch it) had some great ones in loads of OOTDs and New Look finally put some new season ones online. I choose black because my sheepskin boots (not UGGs but Sketchers ones which are just as good if not better) are brown. Fingers crossed they will suit me!
I am also waiting on a parcel from Forever21 which I only discovered the other day through beauty vlogs. I have ordered a few pieces of gold jewellery including an owl watch necklace for my best friend from university who last year gave me loads of clothes that she had grown out of. I had a bit of a moral dilema about whether to give her money for them or whether she would feel offended but my mum suggested I get her a present instead so here we go!
My day and indeed holiday has been full of music too. My favourite band of the moment are Twin Atlantic. I have never been so attracted to the Scottish accent in my life! Check them out if you like indie music. I saw them at 2000 Trees Festival (which was awesome) and fell in love with them! I say check them out as though someone is actually reading this but I really doubt they are. If anyone happens to stumble across me (I still don't really know how this works) please feel free to leave a comment to reassure me that I am not alone in the world!
