OOTD | Spring is Here

edit 1

Yay, spring has sprung which means hello to short skirts, funky t-shirts and more flower crowns that you could possibly imagine. Me and Sarah went out for a spot of lunch on Saturday and I was digging my outfit so we decided to take some photos for you wonderful lot.

As you can tell from the photos it was a wee bit windy by the sea but that didn’t stop me sticking some killer poses. (I was glad I put some little shots on under my skirt though!)

One of my favourite outfit combos lately has been summer dresses paired with quirky sweatshirts. I love bringing my summer pieces into winter by simply layering up, it gives you so many new outfit possibilities!

Glittery Hair Bow- Crown and Glory, Necklace- Tatty Devine 

img_20141216_184645001How freaking awesome is this necklace?! I got it today in my Glitterati secret Santa that one of the fabulous girlies organised. I love Tatty Devine so was thrilled when I saw the little box sitting in my hands. I was even more excited when I opened it to find the adorable little crown necklace inside. It’s so shiny and dinky, it makes me feel like a very stylish princess. Thank you so much to my secret Santa, everything in my parcel was perfect (I will be sharing in contents in my Things I Love Thursday post).

Outfit Of The Day- Prancing around on the pier

Yesterday me and my friend Sarah went for a little wander around town. I did a spot of Christmas shopping and we warmed up with yummy drinks in Cafe Nero. After eating lunch on the pier we decided to take some outfit photos because it just looked so lovely.

Outfit Of The Day- Windswept On The Beach

As you may have seen in my last blog post me and Oli went on a little outing to the beach the other day. As it’s October the Cornish sun is fading and the coldness is creeping in. I’m embracing it this year by snuggling up in print sweatshirts and funky scarves.

Most of these pieces are pretty new so I’m still in that mode where you’re super excited to wear things. I have been wearing the sweatshirt and scarf with everything lately. They are both just so cute and snuggley! The awesome headband came in October’s Crown and Glory Glitterati box and I am absolutely loving it. It makes me feel like a dark fairy princess. It will also help disguise my roots when they start coming through which is always a bonus!

Check out my hair action! I’m planning on doing more frequent outfit posts in the future so let me know what you like about this one in the comments.

Things I love Thursday

(ootd- Crop top- New Look, Skirt- Top Shop, moonstone necklace- a spiritual fair a few years ago)

Hello wonderful people! Sorry for the lack of content this week! I am working on a blog post about something very important to me but I don’t feel quite ready to share it yet. Here goes:

❤ Wearing crop tops! I always used to feel I was too big to wear crop tops. I am a UK size 12-14, although more of a 14 lately, and I thought that crop tops only looked good on people smaller than I. But one day I came across this Tumblr- Fat babes in crop tops and I was instantly inspired. The site is run by a body positive woman who realised she could wear whatever the hell she wanted. My new summer uniform has become crop tops and high waisted skirts and I feel freaking fabulous!

❤ My lovely new uni bag

❤ Ordering books for uni

❤ Lovely long showers- one of my favourite ways to show myself radical self love

❤ Rupaul’s Drag Race

❤ Signing up for the Glitterati! I am so excited because not only do I get a lovely surprise box full of hair goodies I get an extra special one as it’s my birthday month. It’s my 20th birthday present to myself.

❤ Gala Darling featuring my 5 things I am grateful for today in her things I love Thursday! It’s such an honour because Gala is such a massive inspiration to me- I mean she’s the main reason I keep up my blog and make these gratitude posts.

❤ Getting super excited for my upcoming tattoos! I will share them both with you when they are done.

❤ The birthday excitement really kicking in as people keep telling me that they have found perfect presents for me.

❤ Cornwall Pride was, as always, fabulous! The day was lovely and sunny, surrounded by friends in Victoria Gardens. Then on to the evening where we watched our friend do an awesome Lady Gaga inspired drag act. His a cappella version of “Born this way” brought a tear to my eye. I had a wonderful day being proud!

Adventure Time! No… not the show…

At the beginning of last week I went on two little road trips with my friends which is always fun. I am loving having my friends back from uni for the summer. It’s like the old days but even better because we appreciate our time together a lot more.

This post is going to be a bit picture heavy as I dusted off my camera and took it out for a spin during the trips.

On the Monday me, Beth, Emily and Lucinda hopped in the car and trundled off to St Ives. We were going for two main reasons- The Cath Kidston shop and FUDGE! Fudge is a pretty big thing in Cornwall but based on my expansive fudge shop experience St Ives has the most and the best in the county.

Ootd- Dress- British Red Cross charity shop, Cat necklace- Just Like This, Cat badge- I Like Cats on Etsy, Bracelet- I have no idea (ooops), Sunglasses- A small shop in Falmouth that has sadly now closed however you can find similar online.

St Ives in an absolutely beautiful little town. I was so upset to see the damage the storms earlier in the year caused it, however it seems to have bounced back pretty well. We sat over on a wall on the beach and nommed delicious ice creams while keeping a constant eye on the mischievous seagulls. St Ives plays host to the most vicious seagulls in the world – trust me. They will have your ice cream in a heartbeat.

10300210_807876795912908_6499514124289397158_n Talking of seagulls check out this shot I caught of one coming in to land. Sometimes I feel like I missed my calling in life and I should have been a wildlife photographer. Although seagulls terrorise me I do think they are incredibly graceful creatures.

We went to the Cath Kidston shop and Emily brought practically everything in site, I lusted over all the pretty dresses in Yumi and we all gazed at the pretty chocolate creations in the chocolate shop. We went to the Arcade and me and Beth had a blast on the dance game and guitar hero while the others played intensely on the 2p game. I brought far too much fudge, especially considering I ate it all when I got home! I was delighted to find a sweet shop that had a pick ‘n’ mix Jelly Belly jelly bean wall! I made a little bag up containing all the pink ones, very yummy indeed. I also brought a tiny little bottle of Cornish scrumpy, mainly because the bottle is cute and small.

We took some photos in the booth at the arcade as a little throw back to out trip to St Ives last year. The photos on the left were then and the right is now. Still as goofy as ever!

I love this view, looking out past the harbour towards white sand stretching on for miles, I really am so lucky to live in Cornwall. Also how cute is that little lighthouse?

10556243_807876992579555_3300989877377520859_n

Me and Beth just had to take a selfie because that’s just what we do. This really captures the mood of the day though, really fun and free.

On to our second adventure – the Eden Project. I can pinpoint the last time I went because it was the day after me and Oli got together… three and a half years ago… hmmm. Considering it is an amazing place I don’t know why I haven’t been for so long. Something did draw us in though… the dinosaur exhibition!

10517543_807878052579449_586613701187766905_n

I am a massive fan of dinosaurs. People know that if all else fails then a dinosaur themed present will never fail. I mean I had dinosaur bedding up until I moved to uni. Hell the only reason I don’t still have dinosaur bedding is because the don’t make it to fit a double bed! Anyway, when I found out they were doing a dinosaur thing at Eden I begged Beth to take me. So on the Tuesday me, Beth and my house mate Sonera hopped back in the car and set off. We had a bit of a set back when we hit a traffic jam however we made the best of it by belting out “Let It Go” at the top of our lungs in the car.

Me and a T Rex, can we just take a moment to appreciate this?! I brought along my toy dinosaur Toby because he wanted to see his ancestors, duh! I have a rather scared look on my face in this photo. This is because A- there were small children everywhere and B- that thing is pretty creepy! It may not look it in this photo but it is massive and the animatronics are really great. Usually you can tell where the sequence loops on things like this, however I couldn’t! It looks and acts so real, even down to freaky blinking eyes. I loved it though, the day would have been amazing even without going around the Biomes.

10577132_807884289245492_459094232935494994_n

After having my first ever green juice (note to self I need a juicer, majorly) we headed to the Mediterranean biome restaurant for a spot of lunch. I had a divine margarita pizza which was made even better due to our friend Patrick joining us and using his staff discount. Then me and Beth went off to explore the biomes while the others went to chill in the sun.

photovisi-download (2)   Again check me with the wildlife photography! I love bees and moths, I am planning on adding them to my sleeve soon. They were really nice and stayed still while I photographed them. As it was a baking hot day anyway, the biomes were absolutely boiling. By the time I came out of the tropical one I looked like I had gone on a mountain hike.

10527849_807887885911799_177123355652063416_n

Looking out over the greenery from the overhead walkway really is spectacular. I love the contrast of the space age hexagonal shapes of the biomes against the natural wonder of the trees. It’s also very surreal when you feel so much like you are outside but you look up and see glass.

Ootd- Dress- Gentle Fawn, Bag- New Look, Sunglasses- Peacocks

We were so relieved when we finally reached the cooling mist of the waterfall. So lovely and relaxing after the long uphill  trek. After struggling to get a good selfie of both me, Beth and the waterfall a kind woman came up and offered to take a photo of us. Our smiles are most  certainly due to the cool breeze given off by the flowing water.

We ended our day by meeting up with the others for ice cream then heading to the gift shop for a bit of browsing. I got myself some poppy and sesame seed rolls, a little fossil thingy, a fridge magnet with the T Rex on and a awesome succulent called Medusa. I was so ridiculously excited by the fridge magnet as I now have a fridge all of my own (well it’s Oli’s too but…) and in intend on smothering it with magnets!

Well done if you got to the end of this particularly long post! I hope you enjoyed reading about my adventures. I would recommend both popping to St Ives if you ever have the chance and checking out the dinosaur exhibition too! It’s on until the 2nd of September, and if you make your entry payment a gift to the Eden Project you can get a card that allows you to return free for a whole year because hanging out with plants is good for the soul.
