Back to back Sunday Summary posts? Clearly I am an amazing blogger...

First off, Happy Birthday to my Nana! Unfortunately she missed out on my amazing presence today but I hope she had a fabulous time nonetheless.

It's Halloween weeekend & as you can see by my beautiful moustache, I went dressed as myself Luigi (the hat looked horrendous so spent the night on my desk). I had a fabulous night out with Mario, Hagrid, Voldermort, Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, an M&M & a pumpkin. Slightly awkward that pretty much every other girl in the club had taken the 'slut rule' & ran wild with it; so while Mario, Hagrid, Ron, Harry, Voldie & I are stood in the toilets rocking facial hair, wigs & a mask every other girl was wearing a leotard...hilarious though!

I seem to have memory block regarding this week, either I'm more of an alcoholic than I thought or I didn't do anything of any interest (My bet is with the latter). Here's to hoping next week is more exciting!

Did you dress up for Halloween?

Sunday Summary 020

SS020

Thank you so much for the comments on last week's Sunday Summary post, I'm back to loving blogging already :)

I've been loving life this week, been on some amazing nights out with the girls. Including one where we ran a taxi & ended up hiding out & swapping clothes in the middle of the street. Classy, me? Life in Leeds is better than last year already. Let the good times roll ;)

I went to a comedy evening with my mother & her friends last night, definitely an experience. They decided to smuggle in mini bottles of alcohol; saying that I was drunk is an understatement! I also ended up cornering one of the acts & telling him he looked like Russell Howard...awkward.

Irrelevant point but considering I'm currently watching the X Factor, how good was Professor Green? I'm a little bit in love with the man!

I've spent this weekend at home & it's been lovely. Nothing beats catching up with the family, home cooked food & being spoilt rotten! ;)

How was your weekend?

What I've Been Buying 002

October 20, 2011

132
Top: 1, 2, 3
Middle: 1, 2, 3
Bottom: 1, 2, 3

I picked up some bits in Primark too, these boots included, but the lighting is terrible & the pictures won't come out right. In case it wasn't obvious, I love black. Bright colours, loud prints & unnecessary fance require too much effort. My attempts at colour blocking & clashing prints? Tragic. When it comes to getting dressed (& life in general) I'm lazy and as black goes with everything it means I don't have to think on a morning. Win/Win!

What've you been buying lately?

Sunday Summary 019

I'm not going to get into the 'should I/shouldn't I' rules of apologising but if only for my own benefit, I'm sad that I haven't blogged recently & I don't just mean updating, I mean everything that comes with 'blogging' & keeping in the loop. For a long time now blogging has been a huge part of my life & I've loved every minute but at this point I don't enjoy my blog. I remember Lily saying you should write a blog that you would enjoy reading & whether that means writing more posts like this one or focusing more on clothes, I need to put more effort into making this a reflection of what I like & what interests me. I may have to give Bee's mind map idea a go.

In other news, I'm loving life this week! I'm back at uni & finally in the swing of things. Here's to hoping this year goes better than last though...

Although, why will no one hire me? I'm getting sick of applying for jobs, going through rigorous not to mention ridiculous questionnaires, only to be told 'sorry, there was such a high number of applicants, nobody even bothered to read your application, please try again.' R u srs?

I could complain about the weather but the sudden cold means I have the perfect excuse to buy a new winter wardrobe! Not to mention a reason to stay in & watch the new series of Dexter, Gossip Girl, Glee & The X Factor. Speaking of, how adorable is Marcus? The boy is perfection!

How do you decide what content to put on your blog?

Simply Be Liverpool Launch

October 07, 2011

IMG_4410 edit
Last month I, along with fellow bloggers Rosie, Laura & Naomi had the privilege of attending the opening of the first Simply Be store located in Liverpool. Officially opened by Lisa Riley, the store is located in the Liverpool One centre & offers sizes 14 - 32. As well as the Simply Be range, the store stocks other brands including Joe Browns, Zandra Rhodes, Frock & Frill & the new Lauren's Way collection designed by Lauren Goodger from The Only Way Is Essex. The store was fabulous and the staff were lovely but the most impressive feature was definitely the 'magic mirror' in the changing rooms, the floor to ceiling mirror has a touch screen where you can pose for pictures with the option of printing them or sending them to your Twitter of Facebook. I tried on the black bodycon dress from the Lauren's Way collection (below) & the fit was amazing, it's well made & the structure was perfect.

This evening a second store has Opened in Bury, so if you're near either one, I'd definitely recommend a visit. Especially if you're not a fan of shopping online.
