Sunglasses and festivals

I am extremely excited about Glastonbury. This year I managed to get a ticket with my boyfriend, I think the main reason was having good internet this time. I’ve been three times before, twice it rained a lot and the other time the temperature was at a record high! I was there the year the whole place got flooded, it was still awesome though.

I took these pictures the other day. The sunglasses are from Topshop, I love them so much! I really like the 60’s style and the colour is luscious. I thought I’d clash the colours a bit with a bright blue nail polish (Chanel Bel-Argus, £1.50 from a charity shop!) and a red lipstick from Topshop.

Summer’s nearly here!

Topshop bargains and being on a beach when its cold

Fashion, My photography

Well, the weather is pretty horrific at the moment. Flooding, 80 mph winds and it’s pretty cold to top it off. My room is an absolute ice cavern because the window is a poor excuse for a window and my bed is cleverly placed right in front of the radiator, therefore blocking much of the heat that would otherwise be heating the entire room. I should probably do something about that.

Me and my boyfriend braved the weather for a day out at Weston Super Mare on Sunday, a seaside town near Bristol. I hadn’t been to Weston since I was very young, so this was a nice trip down memory lane. I really do enjoy beaches when its cold and windy, there’s something really moody and emotional about it.

We went to this AMAZING chip shop called Papas http://www.papasukltd.com/ and it was seriously amazing. I’m a veggie so I didn’t have the cod but they did these insane Battered garlic mushrooms.

I definitely recommend it.

At the moment things are a bit tight with money, so I have less and less cash to spend on clothes etc. However, I went to Taunton yesterday to visit my Nana and we ended up in Topshop. I found these silver shoes for £7! Absolute bargain, I couldn’t say no. Along with that I bought a pack of silver and gold rings that were in the sale, and it all came to £10.50 which I didn’t feel too guilty about.

Free People competition: A day in Bristol

My photography

I have lived in Bristol all my life, bar my three years spent in Southampton whilst attending university, and I still think it’s one of the most exciting cities to grow up in. There is always something to do or see, whatever interests you may have. Yesterday I went for a mini explore around my hometown with my sister Olivia. It’s pretty hard not to bump into some sort of street art in Bristol, and the centre is full of wonderful huge scale paintings done by different artists.

Of course Bristol is famous for being the hometown of Banksy, the infamous graffiti artist, and maybe this has something to do with it’s street art culture! Another famous figure from this city is Brunel, who built our train station and iconic suspension Bridge.

Bristol Docks

After shopping around for a bit we were absolutely starving and decided to go to The Watershed for some nachos. The Watershed is a great coffee shop/bar on the waterfront, and a perfect stop off after a shopping spree! Here you’ll find a picture of me stuffing my face and loving life….

This may have been taken after we’d tucked into them a bit….

This is just a small photo diary of a city with many more photograph opportunities and sites to see. I hope this gives you an idea of what a great place this is to visit!

Thanks for reading as always 🙂

Garden party for two

Music, My photography

I have acquired a fan and some cooling spray since the last post which means I no longer feel on the verge of passing out from the heat!

The other day I got my hair cut (finally)! I don’t miss having long hair yet, but I know I’ll start to get jealous of people with longer locks than me soon. It’s just inevitable, even though I love my shorter much more easier to manage style. Having long hair is fun because you can do so much with it, but mine was so damaged I had to get rid of it. I dye my hair blonde when I can and the ends weren’t taking to the dye anymore. Next on the to do list is dying my hair the colour I actually want it! My hairdresser offered to do this for me next time I come in. To give you an idea of the colour, here’s a pic of Marina and the Diamonds with more or less what I want.

Hopefully soon!

Yesterday me and my friend Alice had a budget night in, drinking left over beers in the garden and watching Deep blue sea (such an underrated movie!?!?) on the telly.

It’s really really hot….

My photography

Ok I love sunshine and the fact it’s not raining. It’s really hot though… and I don’t have a fan. I promise I’m not moaning about the weather though.

I’ve been doing a lot of walking in this heat, not having a job or being able to drive does that to you. The other day when I was visiting my boyfriend in Shrewsbury he took me up what he said was a hill. Having joked that we were going rock climbing that should have prepared me for something a bit… steeper. It was basically more of a cliff. Probably the most exercise I’ve done in a few years, I should probably do something about that.

Bristol seems to be one of the hottest places going at the moment.

Apparently it’s even getting hotter as well. Hopefully I’ll find a way of investing in a fan…

In with the new

Fashion, My photography

Hello again. I am so jealous of everyone going to Glastonbury! I could not stop setting myself up for disappointment this year where Glastonbury tickets were concerned. Firstly I tried to get one when they first went on sale, ignoring the fact our internet connection in Southampton was the slowest ever. I didn’t get a ticket. That was bad enough, but then I decided I was going to give it a shot at the resale. That might have been fine but I quickly realised I couldn’t afford it and sort of half tried to get one, knowing that if I did I would be EXTREMELY poor. I didn’t get one again… which I was sort of glad about. After that I entered a couple of competitions…. it didn’t happen.

Oh well!

I’ve just spent the last of those Topshop vouchers finally 🙂

I’ve just moved out properly from my house in Southampton. This means I have a ton of crap that I don’t know whether I want or not lying around my room. Still, it’s looking a lot better than it did after I had a little revamp.

Polka dot shirts make things better

Fashion, My photography

So the weather has actually been okay! It’s been pretty hot in Bristol today.

My Mum and Dad have left me and my sister for Portugal this week. Yes, I am jealous. At least it isn’t raining here though, although Portugal is meant to be about 30 degrees. English summer will always be average compared to the rest of Europe (and most of the world)…. but I really don’t mind, just as long as it doesn’t rain!

Anyway, enough weather talk. My parents also gave me some Topshop vouchers as a finishing university present. Yay! For me this is the perfect present because I actually won’t be able to afford to buy clothes for myself for a very long time. I have so many things I have to save up for and I haven’t even got a job yet! Okay, I say this but I usually just buy clothes anyway even though I shouldn’t, don’t we all? So, today I went in to town and spent almost all of it.
