What I Wore//Reading Festival 2014

I was planning on having a Reading vlog/lookbook up tonight however, my Premiere Pro has decided to fully crash on me during the middle of an export/render and it won’t reinstall :(. So I thought I’d just write about the weekend and what I wore instead.

Thursday: Travelling/First Night of Camping

We left birmingham at about 6.00am on Thursday morning and made it into Reading by just gone 9.00am! We actually managed to find a space for our six man tent which was surprising – just glad we got there that early or there would’ve been NO chance! First thing we did was introduce to our neighbours and I began vlogging the weekend! I went with a friend called Steph that I met in college last year (SWTEPH) and as it was her 8th year at Reading – she knew plenty of people and got to introducing me! Our first night was mainly spent having a drink around the campfire and going into the arena to have a look at all the rides and pretty things – although I did have to go for an early night as I was knackered!

Friday: Gerard Way, Hacktivist, Crossfaith, Deaf Havana, Mallory Knox, Twin Atlantic, Enter Shikari, Paramore, Netsky, Silent Disco

The weekend finally got properly started when we got up, cleaned and slapped the makeup on quickly – we headed into the arena about 11:30 am to catch Gerard Way and start off the day. Infact, everyday over the weekend we were in the arena by opening time as the lineup was so epic, there were so many people we wanted to see throughout the day from start until finish. Gerard Way killed it solo and I’m so glad we were there to see it all set off! Later on, Steph introduced me to a new band I’d only ever sort of listened to (Mallory Knox) and I must say their music is awesome. Then we saw all the bands above, all pretty epic too and then it was time for Paramore…

Incase you haven’t heard about it yet, the sound system blew half way through Paramore’s performance and we had no idea why, but everything was silent! To be honest, it was one of the most amazing experiences ever. Paramore took to sitting down on the edge of the stage at 80,000 people sand acapella to The Only Exception. The sound kicked in midway through the song at the perfect moment and I will probably remember that for the rest of my life! They were absolutely incredible as always anway. I also wish I was Hayley Williams.

Later on in the night I went to watch a bit of Netsky and then popped into the Silent Disco but was pretty tired again so headed off to bed around 1!

Saturday: Gnarwolves, Royal Blood, Marmozets, Lonely the Brave, Lower than Atlantis, Of Mice & Men, Architects, While She Sleeps, Issues, Brutality Will Prevail, We Are Scientists (and more)

Ok so Saturday was an incredible day, me and Steph got a little to excited and spent basically the whole night in the pit – it was amazing. I can’t even remember the half of it but I know we had such a good time, just forgot about everything and had an awesome night – looking back on the videos from that night are absolutely hilarious. Not much else to say about Saturday besides I fell in love with Architects, of Mice and Men and Marmozets! Well besides ofcourse that I got to see my favourite duo Royal Blood *heart eyes*.

Sunday: A Day to Remember, The 1975, Sleeping with Sirens, Papa Roach, You Me at Six, Tonight Alive, The Story so Far, Letlive. and Blink 182.

This is probably the day I was looking most forward to when I booked my ticket – for so long I have loved so many of the above bands and I finally got to see them all, in one day may I add! We did the usual, got into the arena around opening time and then this day we mainly stuck by the main stage where most of our favourite bands were playing. A Day to Remember, Sleeping with Sirens, Tonight Alive, Letlive. and obviously Blink 182 were all so incredible I can’t even put it into words!

One of the best days of my life and definitely the most amazing weekend of my life so far, met so many awesome people and saw so many awesome bands – hopefully my vlog will be up in the next few days and Reading, I will see you next year ♥

(Honestly, I didn’t wear the fourth look in the end… I wore another tshirt dress as by Sunday I could not be bothered to struggle in and out of black high waisted denim shorts! Super bloating and beer belly was upon me.)

Winter Treats

Here’s a few snaps of my new winter goodies from work (I’ve stocked up before my discount goes when I leave for uni-I bought plenty more than this, oopsie).

The floor length cardigan is amazing, and it’s so thickly knitted it’s going to be incredible when the weather starts to get really cold. The hat as well – oh gosh, I’ve been looking for the perfect camel/beige fedora for so long – but they’ve all been to yellow/brown and just not quite right. Then I was putting out some bags and acc. today at work and this popped up! Incredible.

Talk soon,

Black Chandeliers

DSC_2435 DSC_2441 DSC_2452 DSC_2479 DSC_2480 DSC_2488 DSC_2501 DSC_2510| Dress – French Connection via Excel Clothing* | Bag – Vintage/Thrifted | Shoes – TK Maxx |

Last of my outfits from my Excel Clothing win right here! I got this gorgeous dress as I don’t tend to own many formal dresses, and with a few things coming up I’m excited. I just threw this on with a kimono to cover up, but the pictures were a bit awful due to the sun glare so I only had these ones. The detailing on the bodice on the dress is incredible. I fully understand the price tag on it! Thinking of wearing this to my freshers ball as well. Not too sure yet.sigg

Here’s the second item I got from my Excel Clothing winnings … a gorgeous burnt orange Tommy Hilfiger jumper. I got this in a size large so it’s oversized and snuggly! I want a nice jumper for cold days and comfies at university. It’s colour I know! Which is strange for me I know but I love orange. It’s one colour I’m really drawn to. Also, I don’t know if you’ve maybe noticed this bag a whole lot on here the past year, it’s a real leather bag from TK Maxx that I got about 2 years ago for only £25! It’s been such a keeper, such a statement piece for me and so easy to wear. I throw it on everyday!

Next up is a gorgeous French Connection dress!

I’m posting my gear from Excel Clothing so you know what daaaat means – I actually managed to get my memory card back after losing it in a loan laptop, so lucky! I went and got it from PC World/Currys today and have been editing ever since I got home from work (after I ate a gorgeous curry that Tom made me) to get this post up so I apologise if it’s a bit late!

I got a bit of video too, so I can make an look book from the pieces I won. This Hugo Boss luggage bag – already reduced from £450 to around £320 I think.. It’s honestly amazing, I’m going to be using it for my travels to university and back as well as my longer journeys to London for blogging malarky. I don’t usually go for navy but this bag is just OOH, it’s too good – I wouldn’t usually mix navy/black either but I just can’t help it with this bag. Coming up next is a Tommy Hilfiger jumper (it is a colour not a shade what even am I turning into) and a gorgeous French Connection dress! Stay posted.

August Inspiration

aug inspo

Pictures all sourced from Tumblr.

Still no news on my memory card… so here’s this month’s inspiration post! I’m adoring snakeskin patterns and prints right now, as well as being desperate for a nice tailored white shirt! Bandana’s are my current game after spotting (and luckily enough winning) some kick-ass bandana shorts from SR Wear. Plenty of home inspo in here as well, seen as I’m moving away in September to finally live independantly at my university accomidation, I’m feeling so inspired throughout homewear and deco! Mind you, you can’t do much about the ugly blue carpet and strange patterned curtains…

New Vlog & An Apology/Moan

la

So here’s my vlog from The Edit Launch Party event I posted about a little while ago. It’s coming along with an apology for being so distant! As I’m currently trying to save up for university, I am working crazy hours and barely have any free time. The only free time I’ve had in a while was the other day – I took so many new pictures and planned so many posts but it was all still on my memory card. That memory card was in my boyfriend’s loan laptop while his was off getting fixed and we completely forgot to take it out before it was sent back. I’m currently in contact with Currys/PC World / Know How trying to track it down but all I’ve heard so far is that it wasnt in there.

So I’m pretty sure the driver isn’t going to rob a little blogger’s memory card so it must be there but all I’ve heard so far is that it’s not and it’s really stressing me out now. I have no time to do all of this again, and there was some really wicked photographs on there. So I’m so, so upset. I haven’t just lost one post I’ve loads loads and even a few new videos. I’m so sorry that I haven’t been up to speed with posting and stuff, but I promise you if I can’t track down this memory card I will find the time to do everything again. I’m so sorry to you guys that do take the time to read me rambling on and posing and actually get excited to see new posts. I love you ♥ Here’s a couple of my recent instapics/outfits to fill in some gaps.
