All I want is a place to call my own

Denim shirt - Primark, Ribcage Tee - Topshop. Skirt - H&M, Bag - Carboot, Ring & Necklace - Miss Cherries Boutique, Nail Varnish - Models own : Beths Blue

This is the outfit I wore to go & see A day to remember on tuesday. I always struggle with what to wear for gigs because I always want to look nice but be comfortable at the same time. This is my favourite gig outfit to date. 
The gig was absolutely incredible, we missed the first 2 bands because we went fo a few cheeky cocktails, but managed to watch August burns red, who were quite good although a bit to rawry for my liking! It was jam packed full of emo school children, argh im so old! I have never been pushed about so much at a gig!!
A day to remember put on a hell of a show, they shot out confetti over the crowed & realeased loads of balloons that were tied to the ceiling in a net. At one point the lead singer came out in a massive blow up see-through ball & rolled all over the crowed. Martyn likes to call it zorb-ing. It reminds me of the time George from Alexis crowd surfed in a paddling pool! Have to say its one of the best gigs ive been too! 

Other than that I've not really been up to much, just busy getting the shop ready for Christmas & baking! 
I had major hair dramas the other day (this is why I have done barely any outfit posts!) & decided I had to do something about it, so googled how to cut a side fringe and found this youtube tutorial by a girl called Kandee. Amazingly it worked & wasn't as hard as I thought! I think ive done a pretty good job compared to what it looked like before, & ive saved £40! 
Also check out Kandee's blog for lots of makeup and beauty tips! 

What have you guys been up to this week?

Versatile Blogger Award!

Eeeeep! I have been given my first Versatile blogger award! A massive thank you to the lovely Sam from Sam's notebook for awarding me this! - check out her wonderful blog here

2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Send it along to 5 other bloggers and let them know you have awarded them!

7 Things about moi!

  • I am an absolute dreamer, my biggest dream is only a quarter of the way there. This is to run my own shop (after completing my final year on my fashion degree) with my lovely man Martyn, stocked with my jewellery, handmade clothing, cushions & Martyn's future printed t-shirts! (Intrigued? Click HERE). Our aim is to create a lifestyle brand full of quirky unique pieces that you just don't find on the high street! I constantly work my little bum off, which leaves not alot of time for myself (hence the lack of blog posts!) but it will all be worth it in the end! 
  • I am a massive animal lover, I have 2 house rabbits whom I love to death despite the holes in my clothes, the teeth marks in my hair straightener wires & the constant rabbit droppings!!
  • I have 4 tattoos, my first was a cherry on my chest, kinda regret getting it now as its not been done by the best tattooist in the world & was not how I had envisoned it. The second was an old school anchor on my foot, which I love despite it still not being finished, I got it quite small as I didn't want my Mum to shout at me, I now realise that I should have got it bigger because its there forever anyway & she didnt even end up shouting at all! I will be buffing it out with some rope & colour at some point. The 3rd tat I have are 6 stars on my stomache (3 each side of the belly button) going from big to small, they each represent my 2 brothers & my Mum (Mum being the king star!) & finally my most recent is my absoloute favourite, after years of searching I finally found a decent tattooist! It is a heart padlock & key entwined with ribbon on my forearm. Its the first finished tattoo I have, & was designed for me by a guy called Gre. Unlike alot of tattooists ive come across he is passionate about what he does & is not just in it for the money. I still have alot more plans for tattoos, and will eventually be starting my half sleeve! Its an expensive hobby!
  • I am extremely impulsive, im not as bad as when I first moved to Manchester & found out what it was like to be in possession of a student loan, but I still have days where I neeeeed to buy that top or that dress.
  • I have constant battles with my stupidly thin hair, I can't seem to do anything with it! Definately the one thing I would change about myself if I could - so if you have any tips & tricks for achieving thick hair that does actually work please advise!
  • Im a pretty random person, I love weird people & I love being mischevious. When my 2 best friends come to visit we wreak havoc (no vandalising just random funny antics), oh and I love to laugh  ALOT. If you can make me laugh we'll be friends for life! :]
  • You might have guessed but I love talking haha.

And here are the 5 bloggers i'd like to pass on the award too!

Thanks again Sam!
