OOTD #17 Interview (no.3)

Recently, I haven’t quite been in the right head space. It seemed to be bad news after bad news, stress after stress and I found myself dragging myself through each day. Currently, I’ve decided to be grateful for the little things; the weekend being sunny for once; getting to take Alfie for long walks and the ‘Your Time Capsule’ Playlist on Spotify.

Anyways, into the post, this is my (maybe) last university interview. This is my ootd I wore for Manchester Metropolitan interview. I didn’t get accepted. (While I was gutted) Everything happens for a reason.

5Top: New Look

Trousers: H&M

Boots: River Island

*Things I can’t find I still include the brand I bought them from.

How are you?

Lots of Love,

My 18th Birthday

This time last week I turned 18. It was such a beautiful day, so I thought I’d write a post all about the occasion.

I actually started off my birthday with some yoga. If you’re interested it was the Happy Birthday Yoga- Yoga with Adriene. It was so much fun to do and a great way to start the day.

I don’t want to do a full What I got for my Birthday post because I’m sure the majority of things will end up in a favourites post. But I opened my cards and presents before going shopping.

On the Evening, I had a family meal. So this is what I wore. I tried to link the outfit but H&M are down for maintenance. But basically that’s where the whole outfit is from.

For the run up to my birthday, I had started to collect food and toys. When I started to think about what I should do for my birthday, I realised I had everything I needed and that I should donate. So now my birthday is over, I’m going to be donating this to the Salvation Army in the next week. I’m so glad I’ve done this and will be definitely doing it again soon. I was definitely surprised how much food I could get for a little price.

2My main birthday present was a Spa day. It was on Thursday and I think its safe to say I’ve found what I want to do every time I want to treat myself. The day started off with Tea and Pastries. The spa day included; shoulder, back massage, facial, hand, arm and foot massage. I was one very lucky girl. We finished the day off with a meal. And I honestly don’t think I could have been more grateful for the whole experience. My Mum and I have already decided we need to do it again for her Birthday.

3rd Blogiversary & Photography

This day, three years ago, I started this blog. I can’t quite believe where the time has gone and I see it as achievement for it to still be going strong. It was my birthday a few days ago, so there’ll be a lengthy post on that going up on Saturday. The couple of days that followed after my birthday, I managed to take a few pictures on my walks with Alfie, which I thought would be nice to put into a post…

12Not only has it been 3 years with a blog, its been 2 years with this gorgeous boy. I honestly can’t believe we’ve only had Alfie for 2 years, he’s part of the family, it feels like a life time. Seriously, what was life like without a beautiful dog?

3456I just LOVE Alfie’s face when he’s observing something new. This time it was sheep. He probably thought they were just fluffy dogs and with anyone he just wanted to play with them.

1087I think this post is turning into ‘What my Dog watched one day…’ But this time Alfie was interested in the ducks. He clearly wanted to attempt a run down the bank and a swim into the water.

Do you have a dog?

OOTD #16 Interview (no.2)

I have to say my second interview was definitely much more nerve wracking than the first. I really wanted some cool pictures, but with stress of getting there on time and having to use my Dad’s not great camera quality, everything just ended in a bit of a mess.

Heres what I wore and how I got on…

1Shirt: Topshop/Similar

Coat: New Look

Trousers: New Look/Similar

Bag: Topshop/Similar

Boots: New Look

I came out of the interview and cried. I just felt that whatever I was saying just wasn’t enough. But a day later, I actually got an offer from Northumbria University to study Fashion. So that was VERY exciting. I’m super excited for what’s to come/slightly stressed.

 Lots of Love,

January Favourites 2018

Why did January feel like it lasted much longer than it needed to? I am definitely excited its now February (its my BIRTHDAY MONTH!!) and what better way to start a new month by sharing my favourites from the previous one…

3

Something I started at the beginning of the year was a Bullet Journal and whilst I’m still working out what works for me, its definitely been a favourite of mine. In the picture above you can see I have two check lists; one for yoga and one for water. Its actually motivated me to keep drinking 2 litres a day and make yoga part of my daily routine.

Speaking of Yoga, I have been LOVING it. I can feel myself getting stronger and if I’m not having the best of days it really helps me into a better mood. I can’t recommend Yoga with Adriene enough.

2I have to admit, I haven’t made a huge effort with makeup in the past month. However, when I use this Seventeen 3 way Highlighter, it makes me look a little bit more alive. It has a lovely subtle glow. You can also use it as a primer or add to your foundation, so when I’m back on the makeup game, It’ll be cool to see the results.

I’ve watched the past couple of episodes of Call the Midwife and I am OBSESSED. I don’t know why I didn’t think of watching it before? Anyways, I don’t know if you could call it a favourite but I can tell I am about to get addicted. Now to find where can I watch the first 6 series…

If you read my What I got For Christmas Post, you’ll know I received these beautiful earrings. I basically want to wear them everyday and the only thing that stops me is that I don’t want my second piercing to close up, so some days I have to go back to two earrings in each ear.

1And finally, even with the little makeup I’ve been wearing, I still want it to stay in place. I have been loving the Barry M Makeup Setting Spray. I pretty much look the same when I come home as I did when I left in the morning.

What have you been loving recently?

Lots of Love,

Sophie
