Six things

I was tagged by the lovely Sophie from to write six things that make me happy and then tag six bloggers so here goes ...
1. Music ... I listen to music all the time! It is a massive part of my day, life is just boring without a tune ha
2. Fashion ... I love seeing pictures of pretty things and buying pretty things. Sounds a little materialistic but clothes make me happy!
3. Family and friends ... for obvious reasons really! I care about them and they care about me. We have ups and downs, have a laugh, sometimes a good drunken cry on the kitchen floor (friends only, bit strange to do that with my family ha)
4. Books ... I love reading and going to book shops. Geek features!
5. Taking pictures ... I like documenting things and looking back on the old times (haha)
6. Sunshine ... everyone is always happier when the suns out :D
I tag everyone and anyone! x

You said you loved me and thats a fact then you left me, said you felt trapped

OOTD ....
Today I am wearing my warehouse top/dress that I bought the other day. When I tried it on I wasn't so keen on it without a belt - it was just a bit shapeless so I added a patent black belt from H&M and my topshop cardi and leggings.
My face is coloured over because I add the worlds worst growler on ha funny stuff :D.
And just a random picture ....

I also look like I have no make up on ... but i do :D x

Dancing is my remedy, remedy oh

Helllo ... I am so happy to say I am back home. I had been in St Andrews for a couple of days seeing the grandparents with my mum and auntie.
It was fun but was a tad boring after a day considering I had been a number of times before but hay ho!
A little snap of the West Sand (I think?!) beach in St Andys. I loveeee being at the beach, we went for a paddle. I have no clue why but I really love the ocean.

Sadly, I bought nothing while there. I couldn't find a single thing I really liked or wanted to buy so I left empty handed :(
To keep myself I amused I downloaded Little Boots album before I left and I really love it especially Remedy. Tuneeeee!
Seriously get yourself onto itunes and buy it :D
Anyways, I will be posting more regularly now hopefully :D x

OOTD & More ....

OOTD ....
I wasn't going to post this because I don't really like the outfit. My hips/thighs look massive but its what I wore today so here we go ....
I'm wearing my Dorothy Perkins dress with Topshop leggings and a topshop cardigan. I wore simple black flats and used my Miss Selfridge "Chanel" bag.
I'm now off to get change coz I am not liking this - its one of those days!

New Purchases ....

I went out shopping this morning to return a bag to Warehouse and ended up swapping it for the dress/top that is in the last picture which I really love.

I think it was about £16, not too bad.

My mum wanted to have a look in Dune so we wandered in as the sale was on. As you may or may not know I have been searching for my holy grail wedge and I am pleased to report that I have found them ....

yayyyyyy :D

haha I got them in the Dune sale for £38.50 - weird price! reduced from £55 which is not a bad saving.

They are made up of two velvet strap and the part that goes around the back of your ankle is elastic. They are kind of hard to explain?!
I really love them, I got them in black but they come in a nude/beige colour as well which is pretty but they didn't have my size.
If anyone is looking for shoes I'd definitely check out the Dune sale, tis very good :D

So that's it, a not so good OOTD and some new stuff :D

Hope every ones having a good Friday.

Anyone bought any new stuff lately? I love seeing what people buy ha.

Take care x

I want it back ...

Thanks to these two (Erin Lucas and Dawn Porter) I realllly want my fringe back.
Hopefully I can get a hair appointment before I go away for a few days on Sunday night but we shall see could be a DIY job but maybe not last time I did this I was 10 or 11 and hacked my hair after coming out the shower. I told my mum it had shrunk in the shower! Ha best excuse ever!

I'm actually looking forward to the change from the side part and fringe. I will be back to it by December probably but I am fickle and enjoy change so I shall post when it is done :D
PS I love Dawn Porter - she is awesome! :D

In & Out Thirty One

Whats in for Tuesday ...
  • Dark nails ala Lily Allen.

I have seen so many pictures of her with dark nails that OPI Lincoln park after dark was the polish I reached for when I did my nails last night.

  • Warehouse.

No clue why but I am loving it at the moment. There and Gap, normally I am a total Topshop girl but not of late. I think its because everyone seems to get stuff out of there and everyone wears the same stuff which is a tad boring.

  • The Maccabees

Can't stop listening to them just now. Don't know why, apart from because obviously I think they are good and like their music. Plus Felix is hottttt ;)

Whats out for Tuesday ...
  • Rubbish Weather

It has rained all day ... how rubbish is that? Not impressed at all.

  • 17 Pressed powder

Its was cheap and it is rubbish! It is really powdery and kind of cakey on my face - not a good look. Much prefer my MSF natural :D

Brilliant Brights

Apologies for the rubbish post name ... Brilliant brights was the best I could come up with *hangs head in shame*
I am not ashamed to admit that I have a total girl crush on Lily Allen!
Seriously though, I do think she is amazing. Her clothes, some of her music. I'm just a big fan really.
I saw this picture in a magazine at work so when I got home I had a little Google and found it.

She is at the Cafe De Paris in London and is wearing the most amazing dress ever! ha exaggerated ... nah!
The colour is so gorgeous and vibrant, it really sets off her skin tone and dark hair. The dress is an amazing shape, kind of 80s but not really. I get the 80s feel from the shoulders. Anyways, to me it is a stunning dress that I would be happy to wear myself.
Wardrobe envy!!!

While searching for the first picture I came across this picture and was drawn in by Kelly Osbourne's orange clutch. I am on a total orange kick at the moment - don't ask why, I have no clue! It is a beautiful bag!

I like how Kelly has kept everything else really simple, meaning the bag is the focal point and really stands out.

It also has a quirky shape, I think it is bow shaped?! Either way it is amazing!

Opinions please.... Lily's dress & Kelly's bag?

The good and the not so good ....

The Good....
How cute is Lo's dress?
I love it. Its really pretty and summery, the blue bag sets the colours in the dress off perfectly. Its gorgeous!

The bad ...
I'm sorry but it looks like Rachel Bilson is wearing gold tin foil. She normally looks amazing - lady like and stylish - this is just gross!
What does everyone think about Lo and Rachel's outfits? x

TAG: Tell me something

The lovely Tabitha from tagged me to do this so here we go ....
1. What is your favourite item of clothing?
Jeans maybe or a blazer. Either of those or summer dresses. I got through fazes of liking stuff and then not being so keen on it.
2. What are your biggest obsessions?
Em .... my hair?! I am forever touching it. I have got so used to touching it that I don't even notice that I'm doing it. Clothes as well, I have so much stuff, most of which I don't even wear!
3. Who inspires you?
No one person in particular. There are loads of qualities in people that I love and hope to have and there are other qualities that I really hope I don't have. I guess I would say people around me and that I am closest too. In a fashion sense, people on the street and celebrities to a certain extent.
4. Who is your favourite designer and why?
Chloe or Chanel. Chloe is so feminine and girly. Chanel is classic, chic and doesn't really over complicated pieces.
5. What is your favourite song ever?
I don't really have one specific song that is my all time favourite. I like a lot of older stuff and loads of recent stuff. My favourites would be songs that have memories for me - good or bad.
6. What is your favourite song right now?
The Maccabees - can you give it.
7. If you were sweetie what would it be?
Something hard on the outer but soft and nice on the inside. That sounds weird but I tend to put on a front and pretend to be stronger and less easily hurt than I really am. What chocolate would that be? Can't think of anything specific ha :p
8. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet- what words would describe your rainbow?
Red - favourite colour! colour of love, like a bit of love.
Orange - Similar to coral?! Rimmel Tangerine queen nail polish... gorgeous :D
Yellow - Bright and happy. How I tend to be, apparently.
Green - ......
Blue - bluebells. Spring time
Indigo - Skinny jeans. Denim stuff! ha
Violet - Violet creams. My mums favourite sweet, reminds me of her :)
9. Whats your favourite film?
Gentlemen prefer blondes, Some like it Hot, The Mummy. Anything with Hugh Jackman swooooon <3
10. Who's your favourite actor?
Not really got one. Hugh Jackman for the sexy factor?!
11. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be ?
On holiday, on a beach with a cocktail :D
12. What are your three favourite smells?
Chloe perfume, clean bedsheets (weird!) and men - like aftershave on them, not just men in general haha
13. What are your three favourite tastes?
Doritos blue crisps, vodka + peach schnapps + lemo and roast dinners.
14. What is your most treasured possession?
My Granny's jewellery. Stuff with sentimental value or memories. Means more than possessions.
15. What did you always want to do/be when you grew up?
teacher, explorer (?!), police women ... loads of things. Still don't know what I want to be ha
16. If you were an ice cream what flavour would you be?
Vanilla. Simple but can be made a bit more exciting ha.
17. If someone made a short film of your life, who would play you?
I've been told I look like Saskia from Big Brother a few years back but apart from that I don't know really lol.
18. What would your perfect afternoon consist of?
Having a laugh with friends, just having a good time with people I love really.
19. If you were a flower, what would you be?
A late bloomer ha. A rose maybe?!
20. Tell me a random it your favourite line from a song, scene from a movie or quote from a book.....tell me about something that you love.....
I love Adele's song daydreamer. Especially, this bit "Daydreamer, with eyes that make you melt He lends his coat for shelter because he's there for you when he shouldn't be But he stays all the same, waits for you and then sees you through There's no way I could describe him All I say is, just what I'm hoping for" I'm not sure why - I guess its coz its what I'm hoping for aswell ?! ha cheesy!
I Tag ....

Yay or nay?

Anyone else think that Scarlett looks a bit like a secretary at the Mango launch?

She looked amazing in the promo pictures she shot for Mango but I'm not so keen on this. I mean its nice but its a bit blah! Also, the high neckline makes her looks extremely top heavy in my opinion.

What does everyone else think? x

A few bits & Pieces

I went to shopping and picked up a few bits so here goes ...
I went to Boots and got some Dove summer glow because I had ran out. I also got Rimmel Tangerine queen nail polish - so bright and summery :D I wanted to try out a cheaper powder and concealer seen as I'm feeling a tad strapped for cash so I looked at the 17 stuff. I picked up the pressed powder in neutral and the hide away concealer on medium. I will let you know how I get on with these. As I bought two 17 products I got a free make up bag with a little mirror, nail file, polish and metallic pencil inside. The pencil is gorgeous <3

My mum treated me to a M&S leather weekend bag for doing well at college etc so I picked the red one. It looks really cheap in the photo but I assure you its real leather and not cheap looking! ha I really love it, all I need now is somewhere to go!

Finally, I got this orange and white striped v-neck tee from Gap for £2.99 - total bargain!!
That's was all I got - wasn't in the mood to shop around really. I think I may be sick! ha

Erin V Olivia

I love Erin and Olivia's style but for totally different reasons. Erin has a more rock-ish style where as Olivia is very feminine, with classic cuts and always seems to sporting designer clothing.
They both have fun with their clothes; Erin with colours and Olivia with accessories (in particular statement necklaces and rings)
I saw this picture of the two of them at an event and like what they are wearing for different reasons.

I like Erin's outfit because its so bright and eye catching. She hasn't added any distractions from the play suit, everything has been kept really simple but it works!
How good are her legs!! Leg envy ha :D
Olivia's outfit is a little more Conservative, I guess you could say. The main thing I love about her outfit is the dress - I'm not a fan of animal print normally but this is really pretty and can be dressed up or down.
Olivia has kept everything else realllly simple including her hair making the dress the focal point.
They have both gone for a key piece but have done it in different ways.
Who's outfit do you like best? Who wardrobe would you like to steal? (I would say both really! Can never have too many clothes lol!)

Too much designer gear....

Nicola Roberts was pictured out and about in head to toe Chanel this week, everything right down to her brolly was Chanel! To me this is designer overkill - fair enough without being told I wouldn't have known that the cardigan and shorts were Chanel but the rest is pretty obvious!!

I love her outfit maybe apart from the tights but that is just my taste, she looks nice - put together and not overly dressy - but its just tooo much Chanel!! (I love Chanel - one of my favourite designers but its just toooo much lol)
Its a bit Daniella Westbrook - Burberry but Nicola looks a million times better! What does everyone else think? Too much of the one designer? x

In and Out Thirty One

Whats in for Wednesday

  • Passed my driving test wooooo :D
  • Brother graduating :D - Sadly couldn't go to the ceremony because of my driving test but still tres proud of him :D

  • Hair growing - didn't go and get my hair done yesterday. Instead I am going to grow my hair and get my fringe cut back in probably before I go away in September. This is what I am aiming for ....

Whats out for Wednesday
  • Friends going to T in the Park and I'm not :(. I'll get over it - eventually
  • Faith wedges not in the shops in blue, brown ones not being so pretty. The hunt continues .....

Megan Fox

I've never been a Megan Fox fan - don't know why - just never really been a fan! I will say she looks stunning at Giorgio Armani Prive show in Paris

Its very Old Hollywood, to me, red lips, soft curls, fitted dress - I love it!

She looks so classy and pretty. It reminds me of something that Scarlett Johannsson would wear and there is a touch of Angelina Jolie about it.

What does everyone else think? x

Twenty Questions...

Bored so thought I would do this ...
1. Things you can't leave the house without
Handbag containing phone, purse, keys. The usual not exciting stuff really :D
2. Favourite brand of make-up
MAC and Rimmel probably.
3. Favourite flower
I really like roses but any flowers really. I love flowers :D
4. Favourite clothing store
Topshop, Oasis, Warehouse, French Connection to name a few.
5. Favourite perfume
Chloe fo'shoowah
6. Heels or flats?
Either normally flats in the day and heels for night.

TAG: Honest Scrap

I was tagged by the gorgeous Tabitha Sheridan to do this tag so here goesss....
Basically I have to tell you 10 things that you may not know about me but that are true.

Number one ... My birthday is on halloween

Number two ... I finished school two years ago but have spent two years at college because for the last 3 years at school I messed around and didn't care about school at all. I am back on track now however and am going to uni in september :D

Number three ... I am always listening to music. When I get up in the morning I put music, I listen to it pretty much all the time. Life is boring without music. I love it when you hear a song and think of good times.

Number four ... I only drink Pepsi, not a coke fan.

Number five ... I'm 5'8 - don't know if you know that or not.

Number six ... According to my friends I am attracted to "dirty, indie boys that look like they need a wash" Sadly this is verrrry true :

Number seven ... I live in the countryside in a farm house. I always wanted to live in a street like veryone else when I was growing up but now I don't care as much.

Number eight ... my dad was born in Northern Ireland and my mum was born in Stornoway

Number nine ... I enjoy my own company. Basically sometimes I like to be on my own and just do my own thing.

Number ten ... its not a big dream of mine to get married. If I meet someone and they want to marry me and I want to marry them, then I will but if we never marry but are together then that is fine with me.

I tag ...

anyone that wants to do this :D

In and Out Thirty

Whats in for Friday ....

  • My new Converse coming - they are "raspberry" basically a hot pink colour and I love them ... picture to follow :D

  • 17 Caribbean Coral nail polish. A really pretty vibrant colour. I have a Rimmel coral but that is more pink, this one is more orange and I love it

  • V neck tees - wayyy better than round necks ha. I have bought loads of these recently, have no clue why but me lovesss.

  • Lo Bosworth's outfit. Lauren was wearing a sequin skirt, over sized blazer combo that I wasn't really a massive fan of prefer Lo's much more. Although she could have put a bit of make up on like mascara - looks like she has none on. Just my opinion :D

Whats out for Friday ....

Faith site not accepting my bank card : no wedges as of yet. Not impressed!

The Ramblings of Emma....

Helloooo, this is just a random post coz I'm bored out my tree and feel like having a ramble so here goes ....
Not really been doing much; sitting in the sunshine, reading me book, eating - usual stuff. I've got totally obsessed with BBLB - not so much BB - I think thats because George Lamb isn't in the house. George Lamb ... swoon <3>
Not much else has been happening really, pretty dull stuff thb.
I booked myself in for a hair cut next Tuesday and am in two minds about what to get done so I am asking for some advice from you (again!) ...
I have been wearing my hair in a side parting with a side fringe for a while now and I do like it but I used to have a full fringe and I liked that too. I am in total limbo about whether to just get a trim or to get my fringe cut back in.
The top two are pictures of me with the sidey and the bottom two I obviously have a fringe!
But what do you think looks best?

I blame Erin from The City - without her I would have just got a trim but she gots me to thinking about my fringe and how much I liked it so I'm unsure about what I want to get.
I'm going shopping tomorrow so I'll have a little post about that probably and maybe a OOTD - we will see if I wear anything exciting or not ....
I was going to do more of like my five favourites posts like bags, shoes, cardigans, books, films .... let me know if that sounds goooood.
Hope everyones enjoying the lovely weather. take careee x
