Hey ladies,

Seen as I am on a no-spending-money-on-clothes recover scheme I decided I might as well make a wishlist of clothes that I would buy if I could. That way if I win the lottery or some lovely billionaire decides to give me lots of money, I know what to buy.
It can't hurt to look, can it?

Those are just some beautiful things that I found whilst searching the internet. Now I'm just going to sit and look at them :-D, ahhh...

Love ya,

Holiday, Three Peaks and a few more random bits and bobs...

Hey guys :-D
Ok, so at the moment I am very very bored as I have done all the work/revision for college that I need to do, and my friends have not. So here I am, at 5:00 pm with a mug of hot chocolate in one hand and a small Snuffles on my lap (a bichon frise who got his name by sniffing everything in sight. When I say everything, I mean everything...) with a quick but long ramble for you.
First I just want to talk about my holiday in Turkey which was AMAZING, I think it was one of the best holidays I have ever been on. My friends and I didn't want to go somewhere like Ibiza and party nonstop for our first holiday together, we like to think we have a bit more class than that (ahem). So Turkey it was and what a place! We went last month during a heat wave and man, it was sooo hot. Luckily we got a good tan from our two week trip away, one of the few benefits of a heat wave. I was a little worried about sun exposure but I'm sure my Factor 50 did the job.

OMG and you'll never guess what... we went PARA-SAILING!!!!! Hahaha I feel such a daredevil! For those of you who have no idea what para-sailing is (don't worry I had no clue either until this creepy Turkish guy started telling us about the thrills he got from flying over the beach), it is basically where you are tied to a parachute which is attached to a speed boat and the speed boat... er, speeds whilst you are flying in the air! It was so much fun and it really wasn't as scary as it sounds, in fact it was quite relaxing....
Ok that's a lie. I was pissing it. But no, seriously it wasn't that bad and I found it rather enjoyable.

Here is a picture of some poor, unfortunate soul who got roped into it like I did...

You probably won't be able to tell but the floating person is in fact tied to the speed boat and not just flying behind it.
Cool, huh?
Also, whilst I was on holiday I spent a bit of time reading and I found some amazing books that I would definitely recommend.

LA Candy by Lauren Conrad
Thanks For The Memories by Cecelia Ahern
Dear John by Nicholas Sparks

Check them out, they're all different but really good summer reads.
Another thing I wanted to mention was in a few months I will be completing the 3 peaks challenge to help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Research Charity and RNIB, a charity for blind and partially sighted people. Basically I have to climb the three biggest mountains in the UK which sounds easy but really really isn't. Me and some of the other people who will be attempting the challenge (challenge?! more like the impossible mission that only James Bond can complete) did a practise walk and I nearly died. I don't think it's for the faint-hearted (which I clearly am).

One of the people who I'll be walking with said the 3 peaks is pretty easy considering all the hype that leads up to it but then again he said the practise walk was going to be easy so I now know that by 'easy' he means 'completely and utterly draining of all energy and so hard that it isn't possible to move until at least a week afterwards'. Despite my worries I am doing it for charity and must persevere. I'll let you all know how that one turns out :-/

Have any of you guys done the 3 peaks challenge? Please let me know how it was.
Love youu

Here's a toughy for you, ladies...

 ...or maybe not in some cases.
The contest has gone on long enough and soon the final film(s) will be emerging onto our screens. Over the past few years Twilight has divided the nation into two fuelling teams, one named Edward... and the other Jacob.
So what will it be?

Team Edward...

or Team Jacob?

Comment below, which team are you on?

Love ya,

Style Stealer: Cheryl Cole

Hey girlies ;-)

Something that I really wanted to do on my blog was a 'Style Stealer' that helps all you lovely ladies out there steal celebs' styles by using clothes from the good old high street. Most of the brands will be British (as I am from Britain) but the majority have online stores that you can order from.

You'll all probably have seen these 'Style Stealer's in magazines already but I wanted to give it a go myself and it'll probably be better because you can request a style by sending me a picture and then asking me to put it on my blog under the 'Style Stealer' section.

My first Style Stealer is quite a simple, casual outfit that, like Cheryl, you could wear shopping or out for lunch but it's still cute and stylish. I love love love looove checkered shirts at the moment so this outfit is a favourite of mine ;-)

Here is the outfit...

...and ta daa...

(I'd click on it to make it bigger if I were you, it's a bit on the itsy side)

Shirt - Dorothy Perkins £25.00
Bag - River Island £39.99
Shorts - Wrangler at £70.00
Wedges - Miss KG at £70.00
Sunglasses - River Island £12.99

These were the closest matches I could find and I hope they help :-) Watch out for more of these...

Oh, and how many times did I say 'Style Stealer' in this post?!

Love you,

London Baby!

Hello ladies :-D

Today's second blog (I'm feeling a little guilty about being totally MIA recently :-/) is going to be about LONDON baby!
I was having a little clean out yesterday around the flat and found some tickets from when I went to London a few months ago to watch the Lion King! I can't believe I didn't mention it sooner but... erm, ok there is no reason I didn't mention it sooner lol.

So yeah, last month I went to London with my mum and my sister to watch the Lion King. It. Was. AMAZING! I always loved Lion King as a child and watching it again just made me feel so happy. The costumes were fantastic and the music, oh my word, if you ever go, watch out for the  person who plays the baboon, her voice is just, beyond words amazing. I would definitely recommend going to watch it, even just thinking about it makes me smile haha.

I could actually talk about it all day but I don't want to spoil it in case you're thinking of going so I'll stop right there with the Lion King :-D.

Other than visiting the West End to watch the Lion King, which is the main reason we went, we did all of the other touristy bits; we went on the London Eye, we visited Buckingham Palace, we saw Big Ben, we went on a boat ride down the Thames and we saw the changing of the guards. It was the first time I had ever been to London so I was very excited to see all the landmarks in person. The London Eye wasn't any where near as busy as I thought it would be... I don't know if that was just that day but, yeah, I was very grateful for it. Oh and we went on the tube! It was so surreal lol. There's probably people from London that use the tube every day reading this thinking, the tube? Really? Haha, well I enjoyed it.

And of course, we went shopping down Oxford Street. How could we not? It was so long! And there were so many shops! I was shocked. And the Topshop was the biggest I have ever seen in my life! Omg, I was in heaven, I think I'm going to move to Oxford Street when I'm older.
We had so much fun and took about a million pictures. I picked out the best ones to show you guys :-D

Hope you enjoyed,
Love ya
Emma ...x

Dolly Bow Bow

Good morning my lovelies :-D

Today I had a wonderful surprise when I received some delightful new jewelry in the post!!! I don't know about you but I absolutely LOVE new jewelry and am always searching for something lovely so when I came across a website selling the most gorgeous items in the world I was super excited. The website is called Dolly Bow Bow and sells beautiful, vintage necklaces and bracelets at a great price and to be honest the website itself sold it to me, no matter what the jewelry was like I'd have bought something.

Luckily everything was gorgeous and so I picked up a couple of fantastic pieces. Et voila...

This Lovebirds necklace is so beautiful and delicate and it was only £5.99. All of the necklaces can be purchased with either a long or a short chain but I preferred the short chain with this one. I think the longer chain is a little more expensive as well.

This is called an Alice in Wonderland bracelet and don't you think it is just the cutest thing ever! I love how it's gold (not real gold though obviously lol) with little roses and pearls dotted around and if you look at each of the little charms, they're all Alice in Wonderland inspired which I think is a really clever idea. I think this is one of my favourite purchases and it was £12.

I love simple but pretty things like this Peach Rope Bow bracelet and because it was only £6 I thought it would look really cute with a mix of bracelets.

And the ring I really loved as well. Pixie Lott was pictured with this ring and because she is one of my style icons I couldn't resist copying her a little. I think I'll wear it tomorrow at college and if people ask me about it I'll just be like, yeah Pixie has it as well haha.

I bought everything last week and since then a load of new beautiful items have come into stock so I think I'll be buying some more soon...
Everything came in a small pink pouch with little sequin stars and, for all you Brits out there, there is free UK postage (woop woop!).
The site is run by a girl called Kate who has her own youtube channel... I really think you should go watch her, she is amazing.

And here is the link to the jewelry website...

See for yourselves why I am so happy on this miserable Sunday morning. :-D

Love you
