Make Hay While the Sun Shines

Or more like “take advantage of the weather while you can!”
So on Tuesday it snowed and I thought; hey, won’t it be cool to take photos in the snow. But I faffed around and it started to snow again and since my camera probably isn’t waterproof, I decided to try again later. On Wednesday the snow was still there but by the time I got home it was dark. So I left it to today and now, the snow’s gone. To top that off, it’s raining so I had to make do with my blue wall again. (Why did I ever think I could do outfit posts with the Scottish weather…) 

I love this lipstick so much! I got it after Christmas as I had a voucher for £3 off No7 make-up. I was going for a colour close to my old one, but got a bit carried away by the bright reds. 

If you’re wondering why I’m wearing a ring around my neck, it’s the one from the Lord of the Rings. I'm such a nerd. My mum got it for me for Christmas last year after I spent the whole of December raving about how amazing the two hobbit films out at the time were. My mum is so cool.

Good news though, I’ve now got a tripod so once the weather picks up, I’ll be able to take photos in more interesting places! Probably not for the next post though as I have mock exams to study for, but you never know; this may be my newest way to procrastinate.

(This would have worked so much better if my lipstick was scarlet)

I'm wearing:
Jumper from New look
shirt from H&M
for £7
Jeans from Primark for £11
bag from Accessorize which was on sale for £6
the one ring from Lord of the rings
No7 lipstick in Crushed Crimson (but I can’t remember how much it was)

I'm listening to:

Oh and I’ve decided I’ll either weekly or fortnightly post my 365 day project photos. I’ll do a blog post of the last two week’s photos tomorrow, but I'm not sure what day I will be posting them after that so if you want to be notified on when I do, you should follow me on twitter, bloglovin’ or tumblr


  1. I love how you combine collared shirts and sweaters. I've never quite been able to pull that off, for some reason. Also that lipstick color is divine!

  2. I would like to nominate you for a liebster award :)

Raccoons and Ringlets

After we went swimming the other day, I just let my hair dry naturally. This produced what has been dubbed as my “triangle hair”. My hair usually curls tighter when I leave it, but I’ve been straightening it a lot more often and it seems to have melted my hair or something because the last couple of times it was just straight frizz. The lighting is terrible in all these pictures so if I look a little red that’s why. The jumper I'm wearing is from the men’s section. I find that guy’s jumpers are a lot warmer and the neck-line is so high, you don’t need a scarf. In Primark specifically, the men’s jumpers seem to be less itchy and wash a lot better as they don’t shrink as badly. The styles are usually very similar to the woman’s and they seem to be in more muted colours which is something I particularly like.      I'm wearing: Jumper from Primark (they are  usually  £6 but I managed to get mine at the start of summer for £3.)

Writers block

So I haven’t posted in the last couple of weeks. I had everything ready for posting back however many Thursdays ago it was that I was supposed to post this except for the text. I had no idea what to write for it. I am the first to admit that I'm not very good at writing for this anyway. I’ve never been very good with non-fiction writing. It doesn’t come very easily to me and nothing interesting enough to write about ever happens to me. But ever since people I know in real life started reading this, I feel as though I should be better at this; and my technique for things I don’t think I'm very good at yet, put them off until last minute. One thing with not blogging as frequently as I promised is that even though I have had my hair short for over a month but I haven’t put any pictures up on here. I really like it; I'm even considering cutting it even shorter. I also want to dye it. I’ve never dyed all my hair a different colour; I had it dip-dyed r

M7974 at Ardoch Roman Fort

Last Autumn, I got a swatch of this lovely Atelier Brunette Viscose Crepe . At the time I was looking for a lining to a jacket (that I’m still working on) but it didn’t quite fit the bill. I absolutely loved the fabric though, so I kept the swatch. I had put off getting more to make a full garment because I didn’t trust myself to make something nice enough from it. At the time, I probably only sewed once a week for about 3 hours and the things I made were full of mistakes and dumb fabric choices. I’m going to stick some of these up on my blog at some point but even though I was proud of the fact I could make then, I didn’t really enjoy wearing the clothes enough to justify investing in nice fabric. Another issue was that I couldn’t decide on what to make from the fabric. I was jumping between a blouse or a wrap dress but none of my ideas felt perfect. I really liked the M7974 but I had it in my head that I only wanted to make view C in a light weight linen like fabric and
