Happy Halloween!!

(you can see my dip dye kind of!!!)

coat - new look // dress - primark // bag - primark // boots - doc martens // necklace - Tentative Decisions via giveaway

I'm also wearing the crystal earrings but you can't really see them in the photos. My sister bought me these and some grey frilly socks as a present for no actual reason. Isn't she wonderful!! 

Not the best photo but my nails are black and sparkly!!

Today you can blame my sister for the blurry photos because she took them and doesn't totally get the whole working the camera thing (and doesn't tell me when I pull weird faces accidently)

Later I'm going out bowling and for a meal to celebrate my friend's birthday which was a few weeks ago. Originally we had a list of 15+ people and it has ended up just 4!! We are determined to still have fun though! We are going to Frankie's and Benny's which I am kind of excited about because they do halloween celebrations!

I hope you all have an ace halloween! xx

Week in photos #8

playing upwords with the mother // you know it's winter when we crack out the twiglets // sitting in the window Nancy // trying green tea for the first time (it was terrible) // Nancy scratched me :( // chestnuts

So last night me and my Mom were bored so we decided to cook some chestnuts. We heard a bang and took them out of the oven to see one had a exploded. At least three more exploded all over the kitchen.

Anyhow I should have more posts this week seeing as I am off school. I am actually doing a lot of stuff this week such as going out for a meal (and bowling!!), going shopping in Manchester and going to a bonfire party which means being hungover on sunday. I need help too! What should I wear for a bonfire party? It has to be something warm because I am going to be outside for ages. Any help would be appreciated!

I'm Under Your Spell

grabbed the puss cat for a picture in  my mum's room

T-shirt - Me and Yu // skirt - charity shop // pleather waistcoat and hoodie (underneath) - Tesco (old) // bag- matalan (last year) // hat - topshop (old) // cat - Nancy

I finally have a week off school!!! This week I am going for halloween themed outfits and by that I mean black, black and more black! This top is from Me and Yu in Manchester. It's kind of halloweeny because there's a black cat at the top (can't see in pictures). I haven't worn this waistcoat in ages! I got it in like 2010/2011 and wore it every day but stopped for some reason! 

I bought a really lovely tie-dye maxi skirt today from a charity shop! It's miles too big and far too long but nothing a bit of sewing wont help!! You will see it in Thursday's post me thinks! 

My mom also bought me this amazing candle today from one of them random bargain shops that everyone has in their town.These candles are a ridiculous price in tesco (I say ridiculous I mean £4) but got this for a measly £2! It's so great and smells like christmas!!!

Playlist Of The Week #5 - Songs from Soundtracks

click the image to be taken the the youtube playlist so you can listen to them all!! 
  1. Those of you who follow me on tumblr will know that I LOVE moulin rouge and this is one of my favourite songs from it. When he sings, "WE SHOULD BE LOOOOOOVERS" I like to pretend he is singing to me 
  2. Probably not the best song from the rocky horror picture show but it's the one that gets stuck in my head the most
  3. My name is Amy and I love Twilight. There I said it. When it came out I loved Paramore too so the combination of them both was just AMAZING. 
  4. the Buffy theme song is the best to hum along to. 
  5. my favourite song from grease
  6. I love Lord of the Rings and the music is pretty. Can you get pretty music? Well you can now!
  7. Pretty Piece of Flesh is from Romeo and Juliet, another amazing film
  8. Another one from Romeo and Juliet. This is the love them for the film and it's beautiful. 
  9. This is currently my ringtone! All along the watchtower is from The Watchmen soundtrack which is an amazing film with an amazing soundtrack! 
  10. And last but not least, this song is from Trainspotting. Renton (main character) really likes Iggy Pop and is played at the start of the film (I think)

Black Jumper - Tesco // Studded denim waistcoat - Roki and DIY // Velvet shorts- topshop (last year) // Boots- Docs
(it looks like there is someone sleeping my bed...there isn't)

I don't have much work to do today so this means I get to spend my day drinking tea and watching the big bang theory.

I love this denim waistcoat that I got from Rokit in March. I wore it a lot when I first got it but then I got my army jacket so wore it less and less. My velvet shorts are something that I bought last A/W at the very beginning of my velvet obsession. The only problem with them is that they cling to your fatty bits.

I have asked for a tripod and a light for christmas so hopefully in 9 weeks I will be able to take decent pictures without my messy room as the background.

Beauty Purchases

 Collection 2000 Super Size Fat Lash Mascara - £2.99

 17 Miracle Matte Foundation - £5.99

Collection 2000 Bedazzled glitter nail varnish - £2.99

I think for the first time in my life I have used up a whole pot of foundation (maybelline dream matte mousse). I normally get bored of a foundation after a while but I actually used it all up so today I had to buy a new foundation. I find it really hard to get foundation because I'm pale and I'm worried that I will look stupidly orange. I hope this one is okay.

 I bought the other two  products because there is a 3 for 2 offer on at boots so I thought "why not". I got all of this for a total of £8.98 - bargain. 

I will possibly do some reviews of these products within the next few weeks so look out for those.

Beauty School Dropout - Frankie Avalon

Jumper - Matalan // Sheer shirt (underneath) - H&M // Black Skirt - Miss Selfridge // cross hair clip - topshop

This is actually what I wore to sixth form yesterday, I just forgot to upload them. You will be seeing a lot of this jumper because I don't have many thick jumpers that I can actually wear to sixth form (we can't wear stuff with pictures and writing on). I am actually wearing a pencil/midi skirt in these pictures but you can't see it fully.

I don't have that much sixth form work to do this week which is obviously amazing. I will hopefully get it done in my guided study/free periods tomorrow. woohoo!

Playlist of the week #4

Those of you who have been following for a while will remember my playlists of the week and how terrible they were but I am trying to improve them now by making youtube playlists to share with you all..yaay! I will set a theme each week for what they are based on and this week's is simply what I have been listening to recently.

click image to go to the youtube playlist!!
  1. This song is at the start of Ghost World and I just love the faces the woman pulls and although I don't know what he's even on about, it's so catchy.
  2. I fell in love with this song after I went on just dance with my friend and it has actually become useful seeing as I had to research Rasputin for my history homework!
  3. I listen to kate nash every morning on my way to school
  4. Rest in peace is from a Buffy episode (once more with feeling) and is now my new alarm tone! His voice is VERY nice to wake up to. 
  5. As you may know, true blood season 5 has started recently and it's not as good as the other seasons but the theme tune is still amazing!
  6. A cover of perfect day was on the advert for downton abbey and it makes me happy every time it comes on!
  7. My new favourite song by the Jam
  8. Taylor Swift is always coming on the radio in the common room and it's soooooo catchy - WE ARE NEVER EVER EVER GETTING BACK TOGETHERRR
  9. I bought a new Wham! CD and club tropicana is so good (especially the video because Georgey is trés gorge.)
  10. My favourite ever GNR song.

You're so vain

the lighting in my room looked nice at this point so I thought, 'hey why not take some pictures' and this is the outcome. I didn't have anything interesting to take pictures of so I resulted in pictures of myself. It was either that or my cat. I am currently editing pictures of an old train to make them look eery. 
Hope you've had a fun weekend!

Give me a D! Give me an E!

Those of you who have been following me for a while will know that in March I planned on doing an A-Z photography project where I photograph something beginning with each letter of the alphabet. For the first month I did really well and got up to C and then I pretty much neglected it (see A, B and C here)! I did one for D but didn't post it on here. So here are photographs for D and E!!

D is for Dambuster Raider!
This is from a 1940's weekend that I went to in June. I took so many pictures but then my batteries started to run out! Typical crappy tesco batteries! You can see the full 1940's day post here!

E is for Edinburgh
As most of you will know, I went to Edinburgh in August and took only disposable cameras with my which I got developed the other week. I really like this picture of Edinburgh, mainly because I took it through some railings and I am quite proud of the outcome! I just think it's really pretty! You can see all of my disposable pictures of Edinburgh here!
