You say that you like the bad girls honey, is that true?


I've always known about Lana Del Rey and liked her more popular songs like Born to Die and Video Games. Although I had never properly listened to her album, despite endless promptings from my friends! Recently I decided to - listen to her album that is - and I love it!! A lot of her songs are about love, but she showcases it in a much different way to other artists and her music videos and short films are so beautifully produced. 

My favourite songs by Lana at the moment are probably Off to the Races, Diet Mountain Dew and National Anthem.  Aside from the music Lana's styling is fabulous kind of a 50's, retro vibe with some edginess, like those signature nails of hers!

I hope you're all having a great evening!

fancy






primark dress | vintage jacket | h&m belt | primark sandals | nails: filthy gorgeous 'teabird'

.Today it was fairly sunny, so obviously I decided to stay inside all day.  I just felt like having a really lazy day with my family watching movies on netflix and playing on Just Dance.  This morning I decided to have a stab at making banana oat pancakes, healthy and delicious right? Well... maybe not delicious. I thought that watching numerous youtube videos on how to make them would somehow magically turn me into the next master chef but sadly all I produced was banana flavoured, burnt mush. Needless to say I will not be attempting to make them again!

Practically my whole outfit is pre-owned the dress used to be my aunt's and the jacket was my mums, an old topshop gem.  This is one of my favourite dresses because it gives really girly vibes at the same time as being super comfortable, I almost always wear my studded belt with it, just to add a bit of dimension and to refrain from looking too 'plain jane' (sorry to all Janes!). As for my nails I am wearing a really pretty sky blue shade, which I received as a Christmas present, sorry I couldn't get a better picture the sun was slightly washing it out!

Hope you're all enjoying your weekend!
