LONDON OUTING

So yesterday as part of an extended birthday ~celebration~ I went to London with my family. Firstly we went up the shard (tallest building in western europe apparently?) which my mom booked as she was adamant we were all going! Here's a few pictures from the day (no outfit posts woops) including me and my sister doing an obligatory 'mom forcing us to pose for a picture' pose!

We ended up walking for pretty much all of it - going to Covent Garden, Oxford/regent st, Hyde Park (Where the Hard Rock cafe is), Carnaby st etc!

The last place we went to was the Hard Rock - personally one of my favourite place to eat although I hadn't been to the London one before. I love looking at all the merchandise around and listening to (mostly) good music (some is dubiously 'hard rock')

Overall it was a really good day but I am so tired from having to get up early and walking around so much!

PANAMA

cccccccccccccccccccccccccc

Vest - All Saints
Skirt - Forever21
Sunglasses - Primark - £1
Cuff - ASOS
Rings - Primark

I'm currently still melting in the heat! When it's warm I find everything I need to do comes to a stop (like when it snows) because I just feel lethargic and irritable. I tried sunbathing but ended up burning my ankles (this was unfortunately the only place I didn't put sun cream) and also ended up getting attacked by bees and wasps - agh.

I hope the weather gets cooler - especially as I'm going to London on the weekend and the crowded streets and tube stations are enough when it's cold never mind in this heat!

WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE

bgggbbbbbbbgbbgbbbbbbbbbgggsbb

Sunglasses - Primark - £1
Shirt - H&M
Jeans - Topshop (leigh jeans) - £38
Cardigan - Boohoo
This outfit doesn't really give a true reflection of the weather here right now - It's SO sunny and warm, and as usual, I'm sitting in my room...at my laptop...with the blinds down...... 

Yep, I'm one of those annoying people who moans when it's too cold and then moans when it's hot. I like inbetween-y weather - the heat in England is too stuffy/ stifling!

Anyway I hope everyone's having a nice day, I feel strangely optimistic today despite this week not being too great for me - onwards and upwards (and all of that)!

APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION

zzszzzazzzzffzzzzzvvvzzzx

Blazer - Zara - £60
T shirt - The Oasis Birmingham
Jeans - Topshop (Leigh jeans) - £38

I'm not quite sure what possessed me to combine a band t shirt and a blazer (srsly) but oh well - I guess the brown breaks up the black a bit and makes the outfit look a bit ~smarter~

I also bought the Topshop leigh jeans the other day - they fit really well (surprisingly) but I can just tell they're going to fall to bits after a few wears which is the downside of buying really stretchy jeans... -sigh- 

Tonight I'm going to see Man of Steel which I think will be pretty good, I'm a big superhero fan, admittedly not Superman - but I'm still looking forward to it!

UNDER THE BRIDGE

ssedfhddrgddffdsfghrdgthfgs-149

Shirt - Forever21
Belt - Zara
Skirt - Primark - £14

This outfit is quite different to the recent shorts and vests I've been posting recently ! It's more like funeral attire than summer clothes but British summer = non existent. 

I'm trying to stay occupied during my mammoth long summer off - It's impossible to get a part time job too because of moving away in September! agh! I can't wait to be in a new place and be more independent - it can't come soon enough!

What are you doing with your summer? (Help me relieve boredom!)

REVIEW: REVLON LIPSTICK - PINK IN THE AFTERNOON

25
4

Revlon super lustrous lipstick - Shade: pink in the afternoon - £7.49 (here)

I don't want to write a lot of blurb about this - Product reviews can get quite boring when there's unnecessary paragraphs of information (irony, woops).

I'll just point out that the formula of Revlon lipsticks I think is great (personal opinion). I'm a lover of Mac lipsticks - and matte/ opaque finishes - if that's anything to go by.

This colours not too bright - or dark. Just a kind of deepish corally pink? (terrible explanation I am aware!)

Although not super cheap - I still think they're a good buy if you're not willing to part with £14 for a Mac lipstick or more for other high end brands!

WILD ANIMAL

Aarrghhh Necklace - Tatty Devine - £60 (here)
Open shoulder T - shirt - Zara - £5
Levi's - Rokit
Belt - Primark - £2
Jacket - H&M

Firstly I'm annoyed at how I didn't get a decent shot of this necklace! My sister got it for me a couple of years ago for my birthday (when it was a fair amount cheaper!) and I've just unearthed it from my wardrobe. It's quite ~out there~ so pairing it with a plain outfit was needed.

Apologies for the crinkly t shirt too - It's just one of those materials which seems to crease really easily agh!
