Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

I may or may not have forgotten that I was supposed to post last week, so here is the post:

So when I was in Northern Ireland the weather was perfect so I got a few pictures of my outfits. This dress reminded me of Donaghadee when I bought it and it was only right that I took pictures of it there. So I managed to get down to Donaghadee; the weather was lovely and we didn’t expect it to last that long, and I was about to start taking pictures with my DSLR when I noticed that I had very cleverly left my memory card at the house. So here are my improvised-with-my-phone-while-old-ladies-were-staring-at-me outfit pictures!

When I was taking the pictures I kept finding more and more things that matched my dress. It was defiantly made for Donaghadee!

Today I’m listening to:

So my exams have started so I’m going to be busy for the next month or so. I decided a while back to pause the 365 day project. I know that this defeats the purpose but I really need to focus on these exams. I’ve also gone into a bit of a “social media hibernation” but after the exams are over, that’s me finished school and I’m free until I go to university in September. I’ll be keeping up the posts like this one and something may pop up on my YouTube channel but I'm going to cut out all the extras.


  1. Wow, that outfit is so freaking adorable!!! I love the dress so much, you look so cute, especially in that beautiful location!

  2. Such a cute outfit :D I have the blue version of the dress which I picked up in Yumi in St.Ives but I think I prefer your colour ^.^
    You're right, such a perfect location for shooting the outfit ;)

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
