My Life Goals Shopping List.

I know this sounds very materialistic but there are just a few things I have been lusting after since I was probably 12, when I first started to watch YouTube and take an interest in fashion.

These are some items which I would love to be able to buy one day!



leather jacket

I have always said that when I get my first big pay check I will buy a black All Saints leather jacket. Even though now they aren’t really ‘on trend’, I think they are still amazing and will always be timeless. Plus I’m still very far away from a big pay check so there’s still some time.



This one definitely comes from years of loving sunbeamsjess’ style on YouTube. I think I could just about buy one of there small skull rings now but ideally I would like one of there larger ones so will have to wait a while yet.



I’m not too sure where this one came from, possibly my love for Alexa Chungs style?



Her butterfly shoes were very popular a few years ago and again, even if they might be ‘out of trend’ when I eventually am able to buy a pair, I will still wear them happily.



Now I know that I should probably just invest in a pair but I just can’t afford to spend £90 on one pair of jeans at the moment so I’m looking forward to the day I can do that.


For now, I shall leave it there because I feel very materialistic and silly because being able to buy these items shouldn’t judge my success but I think it’s just more that I have loved them for so long, it would be nice and momentous to finally be able to own them.

Processing A Meltdown.

Hi, its been a while.

This will most probably be a ramble for myself but also an update.



I turned 21 last Sunday and in a weird way I feel younger. Maybe it’s because I was freaked out about no longer being a teenager last year and now I have entered the weird in-between.

I completed my degree under lockdown, graduated from university, moved back home and first the first time in my life I am stagnant. There is no natural next step. No routine, no security and certainly no money.

For me, moving back to my home town into my teenage room just brings back a lot of bad times. I feel like I’m 15 again, listening to The 1975 and dreaming of moving to London. Now at 21, I’m back in that same room, listening to The 1975, but now I actually relate to their lyrics and still dreaming of moving to London. I’m aiming to move out in January because I can’t stay at home for too long and I’m sure anyone who has moved back in with their parents will understand.

I’m applying for jobs but with a staggering amount of people being made unemployed it just feels very daunting and demotivating. I’m literally hoping for a job I could have got at 16, with no degree or debt.

Basically, I don’t really know what to do from here so I thought I would distract myself with this blog again, if anything it will give my days some structure, as at the moment they are feeling extremely lost.

I’m hoping to share some outfits and most probably fan girl over some 60s ‘it’ girls, as always, please give a follow if that would interest you.

Styling Summer Skirts For Autumn.

As a student I can’t afford to buy clothes for one season, I have to be able to wear them all year round. I think tights and boots are an easy way to do this. I always buy the Primark tights and I have a pair of black winter boots from Asos that I have had for a few winters now.

So in the first outfit I have paired a summer pencil skirt with a chunky sweater and boots. Really cozy but also looks put together.

A silk skirt with a cardigan is also reall easy, maybe for early autumn when it’s not too cold yet.

And finally, my Topshop pinafore that I have had for years, I like to put jumpers underneath and black tights for extra layers.

I think the most effective thing to do is to layer and think ahead.

Thanks for reading,

Awkward September Season OOTD.

So here is my awkward September outfit. Cold in the morning and evening but the midday sun decides to provide more heat than it did in summer.

I found the silk skirt in a charity shop and the knit is from pretty little thing.

Today I ate too much and continued to feel shitty about my lack of future job prospects.

More riviting content tomorrow👍.

Thanks and goodbye for now,

My last Blog Post – One Month Roaccutane Update!

One Month Roaccutane Update!

Tomorrow I have another hospital appointment where they prescribe you your next course of medication and the dosage. I think I will probably stay on the same amount, one a day, as I am quite petite.

One month later and I have seen an improvement in my skin but obviously I am still getting whiteheads appear, mainly on my forehead and chin. Also, my skin is still textured and red, but definitely smoother all over.

In terms of side effects, I have definitely felt those. About two weeks in I noticed them, I woke up one day and I could instantly feel my lips were really dry and chapped. I now have four lip balms around me and I cannot be anywhere without one. I even had to buy another one in town when I forgot one. Another physical side effect I have is a dry scalp. In some ways though this just means I don’t have to wash my hair as often but it can be quite itchy. Lastly, for the first week or so, my skin would burn when I moisturised it but now it is fine.

My worse side effect however is definitely the emotional side. Again, I noticed this like two weeks in when I just suddenly started crying for no reason. I have days where I just feel really spaced out and sad for no reason. I have noticed it is worse when I am alone but it doesn’t happen every day.


That is all for now, I’m a bit worried my skin will get worse if they up my dosage tomorrow but hopefully in the end it will be worth it. Also, we are entering the colder months and I just know my skin and lips are going to be so dry!

A Walk In The Park- OOTD.

Instead of doing any work this weekend, me and the girls decided to do anything we could to procrastinate and get out the house. We ended up going for a walk down the river which to be fair was lovely and very autumnal with the leaves falling.

This is just a quick post about my outfit, I think duster coats are such an easy way to look put together and great for transitional weather.




Coat – £34.99 from New Look

Scalf – £12 from Asos

Jeans- Primark.

T-shirt- I saw it first

Trainers- Adidas Stan Smiths.

Another Week At University…

Busy week!!!

Whilst this week was busy, I don’t actually think I did much work unfortunately but that shouldn’t surprise anyone.

On Tuesday night I had to go back home to Manchester to get a blood test. Thankfully, my journey wasn’t the hell it normally is due to Northern rail. I went back to university on Wednesday. Thankfully I discovered that I am able to work quite well on trains so I don’t feel like I am completely wasting my time. However, I was tired when I got back to the house and did no work for the rest of the night.

I had my first actual seminar of the year and it was just as awkward as they used to be. I didn’t say anything because I had no idea what was going on. Seminars are the bane of my life at university.

In terms of exercise, me and Ceara thought we could run up a hill behind our house and then do exercise on top of it. However, we died half way up the hill, it really didn’t look as steep as it was! Will not be doing that again!

Saturday, I was quite productive work wise during the day time. In the evening our house went out for Indian food which was lovely. Then we called at our friends house party for her 20th birthday and ended up on a bar crawl. Plus, a guy in Tesco managed to flirt with both me and Ceara at the same time and we both fell for it. I don’t know how anyone can be that smooth but I will give him the credit, very smooth.

Busy week but not much work done, I should probably start taking second year seriously!!

Today, (Sunday) will probably consist of taking Instagram pics, working (hopefully) and making he girls (Ann and Ceara) fajitas.

The Outfit With Leopard Print.

I never thought I would wear leopard print again. This may be due to the scaring memory of my eight year old self who wore bright purple,  leopard print leggings. It actually makes me cringe thinking about the horrendous outfits I put together and my mother let me leave the house! My nine year old self swore, I would never wear leopard print again, yet here I am at nineteen betraying myself.

Leopard print has been in for most of 2018 and it has taken me this long to partake in the trend. This time it is more inline with my style and I feel a little more toned down!

I think this outfit is for those cool, casual events, for example I wore mine to a bar to watch a live band. Plus concerts or house parties, I also think this would be good for.
