I've been shopping a lot recently :) I went to Lakeside the other day and saw this playsuit I really liked! I liked the cut of it, the double-breasted buttons, the shirt type collar, and then of course the floral pattern! It wasn't that much, considering it was from Topshop, as a lot of their stuff is quite overpriced, but so worth it at the same time! But then as I started asking peoples opinions, and some liked it, some...not so much :S but I think I'm keeping it anyway :) And then today, me and my dad went to Bluewater-I brought two rings! I'll do a post about them tomorrow maybe :) Me trying the Playsuit on in Topshop!
So I guess this blog posts a little late, but oh well! I had a really great Christmas, together with all my family :) I have a small family really-a mum, dad, two nans, one grandad, an aunt, an uncle and two cousins! My mums best friends family is kind of like our two though... For Christmas my nan and grandad come over for Christmas dinner, and then on Boxing day, we go over to my other nans and visit the cemetery as well.
Me with my brothers on Christmas Day!
From my parents this year I got a ticket to see Whitney Houston in concert next April!! I am so excited for that :) They also bought me this dress from Kimchi and Blue at Urban Outfitters (above)-I love Urban Outfitters!! Its probably my second favourite store after Topshop! This dress is something I'd wanted for ages, one minute it was in stock, the next it was gone, then it was back, etc-so confusing. Anyway they managed to get it for me, so I was so pleased! I also got some other nice things such a necklace from my brothers, a teapot in the shape of lamb lol, a yellow floral dress, some books :) I got a piece of Benefit makeup from one of my nans and a burgundy velvet bag from her too. I was unsure whether I liked Velvet at first, so I decided to just have in a bag form for now! As I mentioned in another post, I got an Audrey Hepburn DVD collection and a vintage vogue for 1989 from my friend Jess :) I hope everyone had a nice Christmas too!

I've been looking for a job for ages....... and now I have one :) I am so glad to have finally earned some money, otherwise I doubt I could have afforded anyones presents! My job is being a Sports Photographers Assistant! So I guess sports isn't really my favourite thing to take photos of, but at least its something, and still photography! Worked two weekends so far, one trampolining event, the other being gymnastics. Had to get up and be ready both times for 7am, getting home at around 7pm. Long hours :( I've brought all my families presents now, the first one I gave out was Jess'! I can't wait for Christmas!!
Me and my best friend-Jess, exchanged Christmas presents the other day! I got her a necklace from Urban Outfitters, a Nails Inc nail varnish in 'Piccadilly Circus', and made her a DVD of all our best memories from this year :) And for me, she got me a box set of all of Audrey Hepburns best movies, including Breakfast at Tiffany's, Sabrina, Roman Holiday, Paris when it Sizzles, My Fair Lady and Funny Face! Also, she even got me a vintage copy of Vogue-an issue from October 1989 with Claudia Schiffer on the cover! Its so funny looking through it and seeing how much has changed from then until now. I loved both of my presents, and I could tell she loved hers too :) Watching the DVD I made makes me realise how lucky I am to have a friend like Jess, and its so nice to watch it and remember everything that's happened this year, it really has been so good! Together we've been to a Coldplay concert, to Berlin, Elle's London Fashion Weekend! Even just the smaller things we do like sleepovers or going to Costa Coffee have been great :) I hope next years just as good! Christmas is such a good time to reflect over the year, and to be thankful for all the people you have in your life.... my family and all my friends, Jess, Beth, Rachel, Vix's being some of them :)
Both my jumper and Jess' tunic are from Topshop.
So.... I haven't posted anything again for ages :S but its the Christmas holidays at the moment from school so I can start posting again now I have more time! Last time I posted, I was about to be going on holiday to Florida! Well I had the greatest time there! Me and my family went to so many theme parks and went shopping loads! :) I got a bit of a tan, but not that much. Anyway, here's some of my favourite pictures from Florida!
