Summer Outfit!

Hi all
This week and last weeks has been so hot! England has had big heat wave a heatwave! Here is one of the summer outfits I have been loving this week! I really like this outfit I have chosen I feel it is really summery due to all the floral prints. I love floral and almost all my clothes have flowers on them, evan my shoes have flowers on them!
As not all this stuff is not current season I can't leave the exact link but I have picked out some similar items from the same shops that I also love and left the links below!



This top is from New Look, it is a very light fabric. There are fabric coverd buttons all the way up the back of the top and I really like the pom pom trim round the bottom edge of the top.

These shorts are from New Look.
I really love these, I like denim shorts and I  love that these ones have floral detailing along the edges and on the pockets. I have owned these for quite a while now and they are still definitely my favourite shorts!

These shoes are from Ecco. I really like these shoes as I love the floral pattern on them! I have to wear orthotic insoles so finding shoes that are deep enough for the insoles is quite a challenge as I always used to wear converse. Most of the shoes in Ecco are deep enough for the insoles and they have got some really nice shoes!

These sunglasses are from Topshop. I put these in the clothing haul on here a while ago (you can check that out here) but in the sun we have had this week you really need your sunglasses so of course I had to include them!

Simple DIY Fathers Day Card


Hi all, 
I have a DIY today, this Sunday is fathers day (at least in the UK) so if you are yet to get a fathers day card then here is a super simple DIY card you can make. 


You Will Need
Plain White Card to decorate
Three pieces of coloured card or paper (any pattern or colour you want)
Two Buttons
Strip of paper or card play or subtle pattern for the background
String
Thin strip of colour plain card (I used a sparkley grey card)



Fold the card in half and cut out a small triangle as shown in the picture above, so when opened you have two triangle shapes joined together. Continue cutting out the triangles so you have enough to go across the card I used five triangles but it depends on what size you make them. 


Once you have enough triangles fold them over the string as shown above to make the bunting. 

Stick the backing paper or card onto the plain white card. Thread the buttons onto the string so the ends are hidden behind the buttons and stick the buttons onto the card, as shown in the picture above.

Stick the strip of of card over the edge of the background card as shown above.

Write or print (my writing is not neat but I still wanted to write on the front the card) out a "Happy Fathers Day" message and put it on the bottom of the card as shown above. You could also change the message on the front of the card to make it a Birthday card or thank you card!

Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed. Let me know if you make the card! Bye for now, see you next week.

Small stud Earrings!


Hi all, 
Hope you have had a good week! This week I finished my end of year exams, which I am so happy about! This Saturday it is six weeks since I got a second ear piercing so that means I am soon finally able to change my earrings! Here is a collection of earnings that I have bought ready to wear as soon as I can change my earrings, they are all small studs as I like the look of smaller earrings in the second piercing.



This first pair was bought from Accessorize. if you have been reading a while you will know how much i love that shop, hey have so many earrings and bags, I also love their bags. 


 This pair was again from Accessorize. I love these, they look so cute and I can't wait to wear them!



 These yet again were from Accessorize.  These were part of a set with all gold stems, as for newly pierced ears gold and sterling silver are meant to be better for ears and prevent infection.


These were from Silverado in Brighton that I bought these quite a while ago when we went to Brighton for the day! I love these they are rose gold triangles, so will go with quite a lot of my other jewellery! I really love the shop Silverado and I definitely want to buy some more jewellery from there.


These little stars were from Accessorize. Again these were from the set of gold stemmed earrings I really like these earrings (but excuse the odd reflective shine above them)


Thank you for reading! What shops would you recommend for earrings? Please let me know in the comments, as you can see from this post I need to broaden my earring shop options! 
Bye for now, See you next week!

Motivation!

Hi all, 
I have one week until the final assessments are done, then there is only half a term until summer!! I know that this time of year is also very busy and stressful for those doing GCSEs (good luck if you are doing your GCSEs at the moment!) So this week on my blog I thought I would share a motivational quote!


"Don't be afraid to fail be afraid to fail"


If it's exams or GCSEs you've got coming up then just think you have put in all the effort, been to all the lessons and put in your best, so the night before or when you walk into that exam room don't be afraid to fail, but try your best!


Just think, soon these exams will be over and you will have a great summer! I know, last year when I did my GCSEs the feeling when all your exams are done and you can move all your revision books and notes out of the way, is AMAZING!


Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed! What is your favourite motivational quote? Let me know in the comments below! Good luck if you still have exams! 
Bye for now, see you next week!

Delicious Cheesecake!

Hi all,
This week I have done some baking. I made this cheesecake. It tastes so nice and was actually really simple to make! It would make the perfect cake to server at summer barbecues or parties!

Ingredients
225g of original digestive biscuits 
100g of melted butter 
250g of mascarpone 
600g of soft cheese 
4 eggs (2 whole eggs 2 egg yokes)
zest of 3 lemons, juice of 1 
4 tbsp plain flower 
175g caster sugar 

For the top 
142ml pot of soured cream 
3tbsp of lemon curd 
handful or raspberries (or strawberries)


How to make the cake!
Preheat the oven to 180'c/gas mark 4. 

Line the bottom only of a 23cm springform tin with greaseproof paper. 
Tip the biscuits into a food processor and blitz to make fine crumbs then add the melted butter and blitz again. Tip the mixture in to the tin and press then place in the fridge to chill.


In a bowl whisk together all the other ingredients until completely combined. 


Pour (more a scoop) into the tin and bake for 35-40 minutes until the cheesecake wobbles slightly when moved.


Turn off the evan and leave the cake to completely cool inside. When cooled remove from tin and top with soured cream, swirl the lemon curd over the top and decorate with berries!

Then eat it and enjoy! 

 Thank you for reading, you enjoyed! What is your favourite type of cake? let me know in the comment section! Bye for now, see you again next week!

Let's Have a Chat!

Hi, all

Todays post is a chatty one! It has been such a long time since I sat down and did a chatty blog post. It is now near the end of May, this year has gone really fast, and summer is nearly here! I can't wait for the summer holidays! 

I have been working really hard at collage and right now it's getting really stressful! I have exams coming up. I mentioned previously about a coursework deadline I had to make for textiles I made the deadline and all work was handed in. I recently got the feedback on this and I got an A which I am pleased with! I worked really hard on that project and I am pleased with what I got and that it's over! Now that's all handed in and finished with, the exam to follow is on Monday, I am definitely feeling the nerves about this one, it is the first proper exam I have sat at this school! After the textiles one I have a psycology mock and there is just so much content to get into my head! Soon these exams and mocks will be over then I have another four week to go at college then it is summer! When does your summer holiday start? In England I feel the holiday starts really late compared with other places. 

This year I am going to Croatia with my family I am really looking forward to it, it has been quite a while since I have been abroad and I am hoping for nice weather. I'm not big on traveling I'm more of a stay at home wrap myself in many blankets (evan in the summer) kind of person. I don't like flying, i don't like being away from my own bed and i always really miss my dog I'm just so used to her being everywhere when she's not it just feels so weird, but never the less i am looking forward to my trip to Croatia . Another thing I am concerned about is the food, I am not a fussy eater but I am vegetarian and that means when eating out in a restaurant I have to understand a menu written in another language to work ot what I am eating! what if there just isn't much veggie food? When looking into Croatian food I did find that it wasn't the best place for vegetarian food.

I have been writing on this blog for quite a while now and really enjoying it. I still, however have not had a chance to properly learn how to use my camera which is something I really want to do and when these exams are over I will take the camera and learn properly how to use all the settings. At the moment all my blog photos have been taken on my iPhone, most of the photos have been okay but some look a little bad quality but that may just be me not the phone.

Thank-you for reading, bye for now, see you next week!

My Favourite Moisturisers!

Hi all,
Hope you having a good week so far! Here I have put together a collection of my favourite moisturisers.

The first one is this Shea Whip body lotion from The Body Shop. It is very moisturising and quite thick I would only use it on very dry skin and if you don't like heavy moisturisers then this one is probably not for you. You can feel it on your skin for a long time after putting it on.

 The next one is this body lotion from La Source it smells so nice. It sinks in quite quickly and leaves your skin feeling so nice for a long time afterwards. I like to use this after an evening bath as it smells very calming, (not sure how that is possible, but it it!).

This Ted Baker body soufflé makes an amazing gift! The pink packaging is so pretty (the souffle itself is actually pink to!) It looks nice on a dressing table (I know thats not the most important thing, but its nice). It smells nice, it is a medium moisturiser that sinks in family quickly.

The final one has to be my favourite, and it's very inexpenceive! I love this Sanctuary Spa oil spritz I use this one all the time! It goes on very light which is nice if you don't heavy moisturisers it sinks into your skin emeaditly and smells really nice. Its a spray so really quick to put on when your feeling lazy! 

Thank-you for reading! What is your favourite moisturiser? Tell me in the comments below.

Brighton!


Hi all,
This week, on Monday, I went to Brighton for the day with my family. Here I have done a diary style post of my day. 

On Monday we got up early, got ready and set of to Brighton. We had breakfast on the way (I had a really nice cheddar and mushroom croissant from Starbucks).

Once we arrived we went and did some shopping in the Lanes there are  so many amazing shops in the Brighton Lanes!

These are the earrings that I bought from a shop called Silverado, they are small triangles. I bought these because, last week I got a secound ear lobe piercing, I can't wear these for another 6-10 weeks but I bought these ready, they also have sterling silver post as thats supposed to be better for newly pierced ears.

 For lunch we went to the chile pickle here is a picture of what I had to eat. It is a thali where you pick your main curry and then get lots of little dishes as well I am not sure what all the little are but they tasted very nice. I had a paneer jalfrezi for the main curry (you can't see that bit the popadom covers that bit)

We then walked down to the pier. Here is an image of the pier taken looking down over the beach.

This is an image taken from the pier of a seagull looking out into the sea. This is the sea gull that landed on my head! Im not a big fan of seagulls as it is, I worry they are going to poo on me or land on me and this time although thankfully it didn't poo on me but did land on me! But I do like this photo!

Here is an another image taken on the pier.

After going down the pier we got some ice cream from Boho gelato and it was delicious! They make lots of really cool flavours of ice cream. I had one scoop of salted caramel and one of carrot cake in the pot is some millions which I LOVE on ice cream! 

On the way back to the car to go home we saw these sea gulls arguing over a chip and as took some photos thought I would put them in. They both really wanted that chip!

  Thank-you for reading hope you enjoyed! What is your favourite flavour of ice cream and what is your go to day out?
Bye for now, see you next week!
