I am the Walrus

Hiyarrr!!!  So here's the new hair , I don't think you can see much of a difference tbh , but i suppose its a bit of a change eh? I thought I'd take this time to show off my amazing skirt i purchased in the one and only vintage shop I could find in Weymouth. If there's on thing I don't like about Weymouth its the lack of vintage shops. grrrrr.

Believe it or not I wrote this blog post weeks ago , and have been on the hunt for these images of the vintage shop - finally came across them today! 

I have some good news too! I'm going in to college today to get my grades , eeeek. So there will be no more abandoning my blog for college work! Victory!!!!! 

Till next time....

Say hello to my £4 granny dress.

 Hey guys! It feels so good to do an outfit post again... and a roody good one at that! £4!? yes, crazy deals I know. I cant believe I have never been to this shop before, I went shopping with my mom and dad for tiles , how exciting... and came across this "big shop" in Cannock. Basically its just a mahoosive charity shop that sells jewellery , clothes , furniture, books you name it they sell it. I purchased 2 dresses, 5 tops , a candle set and a pillow all for just over £20. I couldnt friggin believe it?!?!?!?! It excites me just thinking about it , I have been having some right good deals lately, good times :) 

I paired it with my handy all time go with every single item in the world necklace, my brown belt and brown brogues. My usual accessories for every outfit , I think I need to invest in some more belts and shoes tbf , I bet your sick of seeing them! I know I am. 

I am currently in the process of dyeing my hair!!!! I did want to get all my locks chopped off but sadly nobody will let me :( how sad. So I thought why not dye it instead?! 

Till next time...

Paris- Part 2

Day 3 consisted of visiting the Louvre, the Eiffel tower, Moulin Rouge and yes , more vintage shops! We used the tube a lot that day which I regret dearly , as my friends purse got robbed with alll of her money in, so we spent our last evening in Paris in a police station , where not one of them could speak English. Good times! 

I am wearing...
Dress - Asos
Shoes - Asos
bag - Newlook


I did really enjoy my time in Paris but I reckon there's so much more to see , obviously because I went with my college I couldn't just wonder off to wherever i wanted. So I shall definitely be going there sometime in the future , so I can go on my own little adventure :) 

Till next time...

Finally!!! I can tell you about my wonderful trip to Paris. I know I was meant to do this months ago but better late then never eh? 

Day 1

On the first day we went to a shopping centre 'Galeries Lafayette' it was lovely in there; full of all the designer shops , although I felt slightly scared to look through anything, I felt like if I touched anything i would ruin it , then I would have to pay for it , then I would cry and plead to the shop assistant. Yeah this is how I imagined it going , so I admired the clothes from a distance... 
The b-e-a-utifulll ceiling... 

some cute shoes I found , how amazing are these?!

The streets of Paris...

We went to the hard rock cafe on the evening , which is super cool by the way , although they only had one veggie option there. grrrrr. This wasn't very good as after waiting almost a whole hour , yes an hour , I was told that they were all out of the veggie burgers. Me and my fellow veggie friend werent happy , so we strolled round the streets of paris trying to find something vegetarian , and I'm not joking , it took us another half an hour to find somewhere that actaully did something veggie. I've never enjoyed a veggie burger so much in my entire life. To cheer us up we got a bottle of wine to take back to the hotel ... 

and it had a bloody cork in it!!!!!!

Dont worry , thankfully my next day was wayyy better. 

Day 2

The second day was a proper tourist day  , we went and visited some of the main attractions such as the love lock bridge , the haute couture museum and the Notre Dame.

The view from our balcony , isn't it pretttyy :)

love lock bridge!
Im wearing...
Dress - Asos
Shoes - Asos
Bag - Newlook
Jacket - Newlook

Say hello to my college buds!

Outside the Notre Dame

Cute little cafe :)

We then visited an exhibition based on monsters , they had been made by many famous designers such as Alexander McQueen. The designs are amazing!!! 

To finish off the day me and Lauren went on the hunt for some vintage shops! This was by far my favorite part of the trip. We came across a few vintage shops but this one was the best , the people in there were so lovely and gave us free scarves and everything!! You must go there if you ever go to Paris :D 

I also got to eat at the hard rock cafe! and have a cheeky little cocktail ;) 

I think I best leave it there for now and show you day 3 another day , or else we shall be here forever... :P  

Hope your all okay! 

Love Sophie <3

Yes I know... I'm the worst blogger ever. Its been almost 2 months since I last did a post , how bad is that? Hopefully this will change when I come back from holiday. Yup , remember that beautiful photo I showed you , well I'm off to Zante today! I shall be leaving in the next 10 mins so I best make this quick! I just thought I'd give you a quick update of what I've been doing. I've been extremely busy with college , the deadline is coming up! And I am shitting my pants because I am no where near finished , despite the fact that I haven't done a blog in 2 months. Which is very annoying. Posts to look forward to are.......

- 1950's finished skirt and stretch top , made by yours truly
- My amaziinggg time in Paris!
- My amaazzzinnggg time in Weymouth!
- And When I get back from Zante , my 'hopefully amazzinnggg' time in Zante!

Hope you're all doing well! I shall see you in a week my dears!

Its Friday I'm in Love

Hey Guys! 

Ahhh... Its Friday , I love Fridays, It's the one day a week where I don't have college or work , just a day to do whatever I like! :) I think I've had a rather productive day! I've written a letter to my wonderful cousin Georgina  , finished some college work and done the 30 day shred work out DVD , which is a killer by the way! I need to get a bikini bod for when I go to Zante in May. I know what your thinking, Zante? As in the mad clubbing area? Nope, I'm too much of a granny for that :P I'm  
going a nice little area called Tsilivi...

Isn't it beautiful!?!?!? I canny wait to go, its been way to long since I went abroad!

So here's what I wore to work the other day! Yes its all Newlook again (apart from the shoes, naughty me) But I have to wear it for work so please don't shout at me? :)

Hope you're all okay! I'm going to carry on with my productive Friday, sadly I can't go out anywhere due to this awful rain. Atleast it looks pretty outside from my bed eh? 

Till next time... 


Love Sophie
