Goodbye 2010 ... a year in the life!

I saw on Music, Fashion, Clutter a post like this basically Joanne showed pictures from through out the year of her best memories. I thought it was a really good post & decided to do one myself so I hope you enjoy.

January & February... I don't remember much from these months apart from lots of nights out & getting laryngitis's. I do however remember my Glasgow friends meeting my Edinburgh friends which all went well & we had an amazing night, thankfully they got on well otherwise it would have been a nightmare. Complete with long hair!

March & April ... Again I don't remember much, I know we signed our lease for the new flat & celebrated St Paddy's day in style but I think we just became closer friends again enjoying many a night on the razzle dazzle.

May... I got my hair chopped off. Best decision I think I've ever made!

June & July ... Summer of work & play. This picture was at my cousins non-hen weekend before we went to Ayr Races which was an amazing day, had so much fun & actually won some money!

August ... This was when my three flat mates & I moved into our new flat (although the above picture was taken when only three of us had moved in hence three shots. This was our first night out together after summer & was such a good night, one in which it's events shaped the past four months...

September ... Tinie Tempah! It is an awful picture but it was an amazing gig & would recommend anyone to go see him!

October ... The big 2-1!! I had an amazing 21st with my friends & family, we got all dressed up & hit one of Edinburgh's clubs where we drank & danced our socks off. It was an amazing night that I won't forget.

November ... My flat mates & I went to the rugby, I never been to a professional rugby match before & it was amazing. The atmosphere was amazing shame the match wasn't too great... but it was an experience non the less. After this I went on a date with someone I had wanted to for ages so I always associate that with this month too.

December ... Christmas! My flat mate & I put up our first Christmas tree in a home that wasn't our parents, it isn't anything amazing but it is our first Christmas tree & brightens up our little flat.

2010 has been a good year with lots happening & changing. It has been good to me & I hope 2011 is as good or better.

Happy new year everyone! :) x

Here's to the freakin' weekend

I wanted to show you a few of the lovely Christmas presents that I got from my parents. I had lusted after this fur stole from Topshop for ages & was so happy to unwrap it on Christmas morning. I love it with my leather jacket.

My mum also picked me this gorgeous clutch. It's really classic & vintage looking & would be gorgeous with a really simple dress on a night out although I need to find somewhere fancy to use it at...

I am a note pad freak, I love them & always have a pretty pad for keeping a journal in & others for lists etc so I looove this pad that she picked which will be my new diary I think. It is so plush looking.

My brother got me Jean Paul Gaultier Classique perfume which is sooo nice & very much needed! I got 'The Steamie' aswell I'm not sure if this is very well known out of Glasgow & Scotland but it is a place set in a Glasgow wash house & then turned into a novel, it is fantastically written.

In other news, I've completed a few more thing in my 100 things. 15 down, 85 to go... wish me luck. You can follow my progress here

I've also started a new weekly post called 50 Facts. Each week I basically talk about something about me, something I like or am interested in until I have 50 things. You can see these posts here.

Celebrity Look of the Week.

This is a new weekly feature here on FTF, Celebrity Look of the Week. I felt like I was just doing the same boring posts over & over so I thought I would inject some celebrity style back onto FTF.

The first FTF Celebrity Look of the Week is ...

Carey Mulligan

This dress might actually be the most Christmassy dress ... ever. Well maybe not quite but it is still a perfect Christmas party dress. It is very simple and classic which I love. Carey has kept everything else simple however although the shoes go, I'm not 100% sure about them. They seem a little heavy with the dress?!

Merry Christmas!

Just a quick post to say Merry Christmas everyone, hope you have a lovely time!

Quick outfit before I go get some champagne ...

It isn't the best picture but you can get the jist.

Black sheer blouse H&M : Black vest Topshop : Shorts Warehouse Sale : Ring Accessorize : Watch Vintage

I really love this blouse & have thought up a few different way to wear it now rather than with jeans and belted at the waist so we shall see what outfits come out of this new knowledge...

Have a lovely Christmas & I shall, hopefully, post soon.

Hair raising...

This is a bit of a different post inspired by a piece I read in Look magazine. Basically it was about three woman who underwent drastic make overs in which they 'discovered' themselves.

If you've followed me for a while you will know that I used to have quite long hair, I always did have long hair then in May time this year I decided to get it cut in to a Frankie Saturdays style cut and since then it had gotten progressively shorter.

I love my short hair - it has made me so much more confident in myself, I feel like I can speak my mind & wear whatever I want with confidence. I know it sounds weird that a haircut can do this but I really do feel like I am being me rather than 'dreaming' of the person I could/want to be. I always get complitments on my hair, customers in my work tell me they like it which is a bit embarassing for flattering.
