It's official; all christmas presents bought and wrapped.

I'm going to be honest: not too fond of this outfit in photographs. Something with my camera, i'm going to have to figure out what's with it. I did have a long deep purple top on under, as this topshop top/dress is really thin and a bit see-through, but I had to take it off hence why you can't see it! I had my coat zipped and buttoned up, scarf, gloves and hat on! Nice and cosy. In the snow. Shopping. Falling.

Dust & diamonds + Moody Model: H&M
My camera is being strange... it made the brown a lot lighter (Dust and Diamonds), and the teal/green (Moody Model) colour a lot more blue looking than it actually is, which is a bit annoying but they're both really nice colours on.

Went shopping yesterday, in the snow, and kept sliding all over the joint. Wellies were sold out, no one had any except kids wellingtons. Gutted.

How cute are my new ear phones.
I'm off to try sort out my camera, I did take pictures of my make up as I did it different to my normal, but they came out really dark and unclear and probably do revision just in case school isn't closed due to snow.

SNOW and thunder and lightning!

Last night I was kept up by THUNDER AND LIGHTNING! Whilst it was snowing!
I've never seen that before in my life.

I'll do an outfit post later, i just wanted to share my amazement with you lot.

p.s. it's really cold outside, 5+ pairs of socks would be best, and soemthing to protect your face as the hail is being a little bitch right now!

This is a big achievment for me! I never thought anyone would ever read my blog really.
I know it's not 2000, but it's something!

I may just have to organise a giveaway or something...

i'm feeling so proud right now.

My very own Graze box

I saw a blog post about graze, and it sounded really quite interesting so I ordered myself a box (first box free! including delivery) and i'm really sorry, but if you posted about the graze box, and I commented tell me so I can link you! I just completely forgot who's blog it was.

So, in my GRAZE box I recieved

1. Great fire dragon
roasted maize, jumbo chilli maize & satay broad beans.
I don't really know what to expect with this punnet... but here goes, i'll try everything in it!
Smells really nice, and i'm not sure what everything is so i'll just have to give my overall opinion of the box. Oh wow, I didn't expect it to taste this good but it really does! Some are quite hard though, but worth it!

2. Apple strudel
dried apple, organic apricots & cranberries
To me, it just smelt like raisins; not complaining! Coming from a person who doesn't like cranberries normally, they were actually really good! I could just sit and eat them for ages. I love love love dried apple, and the dried apple from graze was just perfect.

3. Love mix
gorjis, cherries & organic apricots.
It smells gorgeous, tastes amazing. My favourite out of that punnet is definitely the gorjis.

4. The beach
dried banana, pineapple & mango.
Smells quite powerful at first... but it's quite a nice smell. banana's were nice; they werent properly hard like i expected they were sort of.. soft and chewy? As soon as i put a bit of the pineapple in my mouth I was just like 'wow!' it tastes sooo good. I'm not really a fan of mango, and this was really hard to bite a bit off and chew and the flavour wasn't for me. I'll pass on the dried mango!

My favourite punnet has to be the Great fire dragon, although the gorji's from the love mix were my favourite.

Graze packaging is actually just so cute; it comes in a carboard box (which can just slide through the door with the rest of your post, so you don't have to wait in to sign for it!) and is recyled! As is the 'punnets' it comes in, and the napkin!


I really wanted to do some outfit posts, but i had an allergic reaction to anesthetic yesterday morning, so i've been vomitting and the pills im on just make me sleepy so i've not really had the energy. I was gutted I couldn't go to school today as 1) it was non-uniform day and I had already planned what to wear
2) It's the last day of school for a week
3) I've got a nab as soon as I go back, but I left my revision stuff in my locker.

They be actin' like they drunk....

Topshop top , Topshop Cardigan , Topshop Dress, Newlook coat .

Earrings from H&M. Unfortunately, they made my ears go green.
Two finger ring from Primark, the other three are from a craft stall.

Good day!
Last night, it was the turning on of the christmas lights in my city (Dundee, Scotland) so I was there to do first aid, but I wasn't actually put in the centre, where pretty much everyone was, so there were no casualties... So it was really boring for me, although I made some new friends from the first aid, so that was alright. However a 1 year old fell 3ft out their pram and got rushed to hospital :(
IT RAINED SO MUCH! My first aid kit bag is still soaking, ah didn't enjoy the rain.

Today was alright; I went shopping for fabrics for my top i'm making, and got the families christmas presents... successful day. Came back with £5.21!

Foundation on ya lips, you look really tacky with foundation on ya lips!

Why do girls think it's a good look to have foundation lips? For one, it makes you look sort of dead (unless they also go completely overboard with the blusher to make themselves look like some sort of clown), and it also makes lips look cracked and just completely disgusting. Don't get me wrong, I quite like nude lips sometimes, but not like that. If you're going to do that at least put some sort of colour over it. Not pretty.

My english teacher actually kept me behind yesterday, to ask me if I was okay and stuff... she said I always look so sad and like i'm about to burst out crying, and that made me cry ahha. She then said it upsets her to see me like this, and if I ever need someone to talk to, she's here. It's funny how a teacher can notice things, but your own family and friends wont. **emotional bit over!

It was 20% (or maybe 25%) off sale at Debenhams today, and my gran picked me up after school with my aunt and we went shopping... However my cousins were there - one ran out the shop with a bag i hadn't bought yet to see his brother and the security alarms went off. Good one Rue - and somehow I spent £305 in Topshop... it's funny though, i've only got a few things to show for it. Most of its been kept until christmas though :(


In town today, even in this freezing rain, females ranging from 12-30 had their camel toes out. If you're going to wear jeggins, it'd be best to opt for a long top/a dress. No one wants to see that.

P.S. Nathan from Misfits is a beaut.

Steady as she goes...

Today, whilst my gran was at church I went shopping as I needed a new coat for school (and boots, but had no luck with those) and I found one - a gorgeous burgendy one. Thing is, it didn't have a hood... so I didn't get it, and instead got this Military Ladder Coat from New Look

Apparently a lot of people have been returning it because the buttons fall off easy, but i'm hoping it's not gonna happen to me as I quite like it. Had to get a size 14 though because in sizes 8+10, i couldn't zip it shut over my boobs, and in 12 I could hardly move. No use!

I got a couple of jumpers for school too since it's all cold now, in a nice burgandy and purple!

I was planning on doing a nail post today but my grans camera just died and it needs batteries, so obviously I can't... There will be a nail post on Tuesday though!
