One Republic

Last Saturday I headed to Glasgow with my mum and my sister to see One Republic! I was a bit apprehensive about going as I wasn't feeling myself and was so tired but i'm really glad I went because it was one of the best concerts I have been to in  a long time and One Republic were brilliant live.

They got the crowd on their feet to Counting Stars and they had everyone singing along to Good Life! Here are some of my photos from the night, They were taken on my iPhone so they aren't as clear as I would of hoped and we were sitting right at the back in the upstairs of the concert hall which gave us a great view of the whole concert!

Exciting News & Sunny Days

Lets start with some exciting news! I got a place in college to study Communication with Media which is really exci
ting as I really want to get into Broadcast Journalism and I am now that one step closer to my dream job!!

After Work this week I spent time making great use of this lovely weather we've been having here in Scotland and I  also made great use of my Netflix subscription - its the best thing ever invented for movie lovers like myself.

On Friday night me and my friend went to see Dallas Buyers Club. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it to begin with but half and hour into the film I realised I was wrong. Dallas Buyers Club is  one of the best films I think I've seen this year, Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto truly deserved their Oscars for their amazing performances. I've seen many of McConaughey's films in the past but have never seen any of Jared Leto's films and I was in awe he  is an amazing actor and he played the part outstandingly well.

Today I'm Craving L.A, I'm Craving sunshine, although its rather sunny here today a hole 15 degrees of sunshine ( thats warm for Scotland) I still miss the L.A sunshine, cycling down venice beach walking around in summer dresses, I miss the L.A lifestyle.

But I suppose I'll just have to settle for cycling around my new home town and wearing warm clothing for now. Heres a few snapshots of my week to enjoy!

Pinterest Fashion

I'm sure most of you are aware by now that Pinterest is incredible for fashion inspirations or anyother inspirations for that matter. It wasn't until about a year and a half ago that I finally signed up to the site and I have loved it ever since -especially when I need good fashion inspiration.  In the past I've never really understood the importance of fashion until now. Over the past year I've learned to understand the greatness of fashion, now i'm not going to pretend I know all the correct fashion lingo because I don't really.

I've learnt what a statement piece can do to an outfit and I've tried to incorporate that into my own fashion styles as much as I can. I just wish I had a job or a lifestyle where I could where all this great fashion day in day out without getting funny looks from the locals - but then i suppose thats a sense of style as well as confidence in yourself to be able to wear all this beautiful fashion pieces and be comfortable enough to walk down the street. I see different fashion inspirations everywhere in magazines, TV shows, blogs and Instagram being two of the main ones. I'm always taking screen shots of the Pinterest fashion images and saving them for when i go shopping hoping for inspiration so i've collected a few of my favourites to show you!

Also Take a look at my Pinterest boards here

Spend Spend Spend!

As soon as pay day came around at the end of january my pay check left my bank account as quickly as it came in so as you can tell I've spend my earnings well this month! Half way through gathering up all my recent purchases, I realised that this is a little hard when we are in the middle of packing up our house to move and most of these said purchases are already boxed up and are currently sitting in a storage room as I type. I was tempted to rip open a couple of the boxes to fish out my purchases but think my mum might disown me .. I Kid.

I had plans on saturday night which I decided to wear my new little black dress for, which i'm in love with but didn't take any photographs of me wearing in but i will include the dress in March's Haul post. So i decided to compliment my new favourite Little Black Dress with red accessories, on of which included my new Red Shoes. I have been wanting a pair of red shoes to tap my feet together and wish for home ever since I first seen the Wizard of Oz. So off I headed to New Look where I found these lovely little -or size 8's in my case- heels. While I was there I also picked up the Nude pair of heels as I'm loving the simple jeans and heels look at the moment and I thought these were perfect.

Then as my shopping trips are never without a stop into Topshop where I purchased this cute Chiffon Printed Headband  which I thought would be great little accessory for when I wear my hair in a bun! While I was in Topshop I also picked up a necklace set in the picture below, which i thought would look great as a statement piece over a simple t-shirt or dress. I also picked up a new Ted Baker iPad case from John Lewis, as I mentioned in my Whats In My Bag post that its great for traveling every where with my iPad. 

From Topshop I also picked up this cute little Green Concertina Bag  which I thought is great for adding a splash of  colour to an outfit and its also a perfect size for everyday essentials. I've been loving grey jumpers at the moment so I was especially happy when I found the grey jumper pictured below in Zara and on Sale! (similar here) You can imagine my excitement when I found out it was only £7.99 and my size!!!  While in Topshop I also picked up a Navy Tube Midi Skirt. This skirt is a great skirt for everyday wear as it's not too dressy and I have loved wearing it ever since I picked it up. 

One of my favourite purchases of the month was my Marc by Marc Jacobs Baker watch. I have never really been someone who wears a watch everyday but once I'd seen this on another blog I fell in love with the watch and haven't stopped wearing it since it was purchased! Defiantly a good investment piece that goes with almost every outfit.
