/// mini stationary haul


On Tuesday, me and my friends decided to go to Westfield Stratford for the day.  I think the beauty of living in London is that nearly everywhere is just a tube journey away. I have come to the conclusion that I hate shopping malls, I just think they're way too constricted and quite hard to get around especially in Westfield, with about a gazillion people walking in every direction. All complaining aside, there I fell in love with a lil store you may know called Tiger.  There is nothing more dangerous than putting me in a shop full of stationary.  Damage was done, but to my surprise it wasn't to my purse, each of the items above costed just £1!! Paperchase quality products at a fraction of the price!

turtle necks

I recently discovered pinterest and as a result I will probably be attacking you with these type posts more often. Any who these seventies style tops are back for this autumn / winter and couldn't be happierThere's nothing better than a top that also works as a scarf, all while making you feel like Audrey Hepburn.

What do you think of the turtle neck trend?

seeing the 1975

      (Photos from my friends instagram / @elimckenziex)

So on Wednesday last week,  I got to see the 1975's last UK tour date at Alexandra Palace. And they were amazing. I have mentioned in a few posts on this blog before how much I love them, but seeing them live increased my love for them by about 10000%. I went with my friend Eli and we traveled (with my mum) by train. The queue when we got there was absolutely massive! Seeing as it was my first concert I wasn't really sure what to expect, but it was so so so great, despite the fact that my feet ached so much from standing for 5 hours (*note to self, never wear heels to a standing concert). The energy was amazing and so were the two guest acts, Y.O.U and Circa Waves. Circa waves definitely have a Vampire Weekend type sound, which I loved. The actual main act the 1975, were fantastic, as to be expected. I loved seeing everyone dancing, and everyone singing along with their hands in the air.  It was one of the best nights ever and I can't wait to go to another concert!

15th birthday haul

On Monday it was my birthday and so far being fifteen hasn't really felt that different to being fourteen. Except for the fact that I am now legally old enough to watch fifteen movies in the cinema! However, it is pretty frightening that in five years I would have already finished high school, college and maybe started uni ??!!!  Anyways today I thought I would share with you some of the lovely gifts I got from my friends and family for my birthday, all of which I am so extremely thankful for! I've already started teaching myself to play 'Riptide' on the ukulele!

Hope you are all having a lovely day!
