Singing in the shower

Dress-Forever21
Air Mx 90-Office

First of all I'd like to wish a Happy Birthday to my wonderful Mumma! Since Sports attire is just about everywhere at the minute, I thought it would be the perfect time to try out the old dress/trainer combo. Sorry if I've offended any of you fashionistas, but it's been so nice not wearing heels everyday as my feet are in absolute tatters!(Why I insist on wearing them to work when I am constantly on my feet I do not know) I love this Vest dress that I picked up from Forever 21 a few weeks back and for £9 I believe that it's a real bargain, It'll be great to dress up for a night out or kept simple as a cover up during the day on my holiday which I'm off to on Wednesday. The quality is amazing and it's a simple versatile piece that I look forward to styling. 
Now I believe that bumbags should be left to the market traders, however as I'm prone to losing just about everything I'm hoping that this little flowery baby will prevent any holiday unwanted disasters. The D.I.Y on it was down to my mum and the flowers came from a primark headband that hadn't been worn for some time. Stuck down with superglue onto my Dads old Bag and Bobs your uncle! I highly recommend doing this yourself if you're in need as I've seen similar homemade styles on bay selling for £20+. I've had a little pre-holiday hair cut just to get rid of the many split ends that had multiplied all too quickly. I think you forget how nice it feels to go to the hairdressers and have a little pamper, and I'm so glad as I did as I'm know rearing to be in Spain now! Even more so as the heavens have just opened here in Britain(Surprise Surprise).

Speak Soon, Happy Monday.x

Jacket-Pretty Little Thing.             
Jeans&Top-Missguided                      
Bag-Zara                                              

I'm so ashamed to be using just one outfit photo in this post, but trying to get a few decent shots before I shot out the door to my friends 18th dinner was the impossible task. I'm not kidding when I say this is the only one that is remotely okay, but armed with the remains from my pay cheque I did what any normal girl would do. Head over to Missguided! I am obsessed with online shopping and I'm always on the look out for new brands to shop with so let me know if you know any! I decided to treat myself to a pair of new jeans as at the minute my jean collection is less than impressive, not for much longer though. The top was purchased with the thought in mind that I really don't have enough, in terms of top to bottom ratio and I thought it was the perfect simple top. High neck tops are really appealing to me at the minute, it's so simple yet it speaks volumes. Anyway It's just a quick one from me today.         Happy Saturday.x

Preparing for my first adult-less holiday 1/2

I really love having my own Blog as I find that I can provide advice on situations that I'm going through where I could've used it, and where I feel that people might need some. As we all know it's nice to have some advice regardless of whether we end up using it or not, So with my holiday departure date approaching at ridiculous speed I've decided it's about time I face up to the fact that I'm going to need to be an adult(at least for the week)! There will be another advice post after I return from holiday which will be packed with the do's and don'ts when abroad with your friends. I feel like I've been a bit brief when it comes to my holiday, so I'm going to Magaluf in Spain next Wednesday for 7 Days.

Now I will not lie to you I'm pretty damn nervous, just as I'm not sure what to expect in terms of the Bars, the people and the labelled "Pushy" reps. But from what I've seen from holidaymakers this year the Holiday is what you make of it, and of course people are going to be making silly rash decisions but I mean that's happening in Britain every weekend right? I'm just going to keep my wits about me but also make the most of my first ever girls holiday, I have plans of beautiful beaches, Water sports,and a sizzling Booze cruise (Actually we'll see about the last one!)

There's no denying both my  at the prospect of being abroad with people my age, as my family age range is all over the place I actually have no members of my family with the same age as me. Little things like going to dinner and heading to the beach I'm really looking forward to, there's something lovely about being on holiday with your friends and it sure is the ultimate test! Like any of you that are/have already been abroad with your mates this year I'm sure you know my pain when the same don'ts are repeated to me by just about everyone that I come into contact with.
They Vary From:

-Don't leave your friends
-Don't desert your drink and then go back to it
-Don't dive in the pool at night
etc etc    
                          
But I get it they just want us to be safe which has to be worrying when you see the amount  of disasters that have happened abroad just this year alone. I think the key is not to get too carried away with the cheap booze on offer, I am aware though that as Magaluf bars offer ridiculously cheap or free alcohol for all holiday makers so it's no suprise that people get absolutely bladdered all night and day. It's all about moderation guys!! It doesn't seem real and I doubt that it will until I arrive at the airport and my departure time is within spitting distance (I've just realised I really hate that phrase!) even when I attempt to sort through my case and my horrendous old school summer bits
It will definitely be an unforgettable experience that's for sure!

Happy Thursday.x

What a Pretty Little Thing


                 
                   
                   
Jacket-Pretty Little Thing
Trousers-Forever 21
Top-Missguided

Apologies for the cringe worthy post title but from the minute that this PLT jacket arrived I knew it was a match made in heaven, It was a difficult decision between the cream and the black, but as always I opted for the Black just as I thought I would get more wear out of it. (And that the Makeup stains wouldn't be as obvious!) It's lovely and lightweight yet a little thicker than my Missguided Jacket, which is great as the great British weather is all over the place for a change. Initially I was planning to do a "blackout" outfit which would just feature head to toe black clothing, but I decided that these new adorable Forever 21 trousers would work just as well. I love a good high waist and these trousers are my current favourites, I'm not normally a regular Forever 21 customer but I have to admit that each time I enter the Oxford Circus store I leave a happy girl! I definitely recommend visiting it if you're in the area, as the whole store is just to die. The prices are ridiculously cheap and for me the design and style are always lovely, they're sizes are S M L so being a size 10 I go for the M and i'm always happy with the fit. Right now I'm making the last minute preparations for my holiday next Wednesday, I am ridiculously excited but as always I'm fretting about not having anything to wear. So in typical me style I've taken to PLT and Missguided and bought a load of holiday pieces that I doubt will even make an appearance. But I'm looking forward to seeing how I cope on holiday without my parents, it will definetley be interesting!                      Happy Tuesday.x

It's Tiger time!


Skirt-Primark 
Bag-Miss Selfridge.              
So last night was my first ever real club experience, and like any newbie I had no idea where I wanted to go/where the best place was to go etc. It's so hard when you don't know what these places are like! Anyway after speaking to some people about the club scene, it seemed as if the majority of the best clubs were based in Picadilly Circus area. Which really is great as it's so easy to get to, it was kind of a last minute thing once we got there and after being repeatedly hassled by club promoters we made the decision to head to Tiger Tiger. Which Incase you don't know is a club that backs onto a Resturant, the inside was buzzing and we was lucky enough to pay £10 entry not £15 (I think they wanted more girls to be honest!!)
There's no denying that the location is perfect and the drinks are fairly priced which I was really suprised at, however I will have to say as the area is highly populated by tourists and it seems that a fair amount if them left their manners at home! I'm talking grabbing and just behaviour that had us feeling ridiculously uncomfortable within about 5 minutes, but we all have to experience these things to find the places that we like right! I'm currently on my way home from work so if I start to ramble it's probably because my eyes are closed! Anyway I was really happy with my outfit as it ended up looking like a two piece suit, when in fact they were from two different places. The top was from River Island and I've had my eye on it ever since I first spotted it, it was a close call between the black and the white but once I stumbled across the skirt the outfit became clear. Apologises for the quality of photos, I was so unorganised and these photos were taken at about 11pm, the top has mesh sleeves and crosses over at the bottom. All I can say is expect to see this on a regular basis, the skirt was an odd one that I was lucky enough to find in .the Lakeside Primark which is probably my favourite one, I didn't bother trying it as for £8 I just decided to cut my losses and buy it before someone else did. I'm so happy with it and I can't wait to wear it again! Okay last thing prepare yourselves, I've only gone and got an internship in Fashion PR! Yes after what seems like an endless (dramatic) search I've been offered a 4 week placement at an adorable PR firm close to my home. I'm really happy and I'll be starting in September once I arrive back from my holiday. Thanks for all your support and carry on with your searches, as you know that it will pay off eventually. Happy Sunday.x

J'adore

Top-Monki
Jeans-River Island
Bag-Miss Selfridge

So here's my first real outfit post as an Eighteen year old, I'll admit it does feel pretty good! This was an outfit that I wore yesterday to watch the Inbetweeners Two but I'll get to that in a bit. In typical me style I failed to take any photos so recreation was the only answer. It wasn't the most sensible outfit as for me heat and jeans do not go together, especially with the thickness of these ones! These are my all time favourite jeans and I wear them 99% of the time, simply because I love the fit, feel and they're so comfortable so they're always my first choice for work! I love this adorable Monki top also, because it's really simple and I'm looking forward to styling it in different ways. I ended up buying it from the ASOS website however as I didn't fancy paying the £6 delivery charge, this is my first purchase from Monki and I never knew how affordable it was! Now I've been lusting over this bag for a while so when I headed to Oxford street armed with an Arcadia voucher, I was at the checkout with the bag in my hand before I even knew it. I'm a sucker for an envelope clutch and I'm hoping that a touch of Pink may take me out of my monochrome funk. Anyway onto Inbetweeners 2:

Plot- Simon, Neil, and Will head out to Austraulia To Visit Jay where he's staying with his uncle. All the boys apart from Simon have split with the girls from the first movie, and on their break from Univeristy they head down under. Jay is heartbroken over his break up with Jane, and heads out to find her with the three boys in tow.

Thoughts- There's no denying that the film is hilarious, and there's plenty of typical jokes from the boys making it a really feel good film. Although don't take that as encouragement to take the family, However I feel that the plot wasn't strong enough, and at times it was a bit like what's going on here? Prepare for surprises, laughs and of course naughtiness.

Rate-3./5

Sian turns 18

Top-H&M.  Cullottes&Jacket-Missguided Bag-Zara.                                              So yesterday I turned the big Eighteen, I was awoken by my Mothers singing, white chocolate pancakes and Buck's Fizz. and what does every adult want to do with her day? Go to London Zoo of course! So we got the water bus from Little Venice straight into London Zoo, which was a really lovely experience. Ready to explore we headed into the Zoo and we saw everything from African hunting dogs to Rhinos and Kangaroos. I learnt the hard way that there is A LOT of walking involved so wear comfortable shoes people! After heading home to recharge we headed back out to Convent Garden to a newly opened Steak house which surprisingly I can't remember the name of! But aside from being ridiculously overpriced it was a nice way to finish my day. And now I'm looking forward to an adult celebration this weekend so pictures will follow. Happy Wednesday.x
