5 Goals for 2017

So looking back on my 2016 goals post, I didn't do too badly. I may not have saved money or started my uni work early but I certainly have done more with my spare time, I've tried (sort of) to blog more and I'm definitely a whole lot happier than I was this time last year. So 2017 is a pretty big year for me so I guess it's only fair to set myself some goals.

1. Save Money (srsly though this time) I didn't manage it in 2016 but I have some pretty big plans for the new year so saving is a definite must if I want to achieve my bigger plan.

2. Have a Wicked 21st I turn 21 in March and I don't usually make a big deal out of my birthday but this year I'm planning an ultimate night out and trying to fit in everything that I want to do. It's in the midst of my busiest uni month but one weekend wont hurt, right?

3. Get a high 2:1/First in my Degree. It's my final year of uni and I'm working my butt off to try and get the best degree I possibly can. 

4. Make a plan for after uni and achieve it. I have an idea of what I want to do when I finish uni but I haven't made a solid plan but when I do I intend to stick to it and see it through.

5. Have a good time. Yes it's my final year of university. Yes it's the year I need to decide what I want to spend my life doing and become an adult free from education but at the end of the day life is too short to spend the whole time worrying about and I need to make sure I stay happy. 

Here's to a new, important and pretty damn scary year.

What are your goals for 2017?

Comfy Boxing Day Outfit

Primark Faux Leather Jacket (similar) and Leopard Print Scarf // H&M Jumpsuit // M&S Bag (sold out) // Topshop top worn under jumpsuit

Boxing day is always a lazy day for me so I was delighted to received this super comfy jumpsuit for Christmas as it is perfect for lounging around and perfect for cradling that food baby. I popped to the shop (nothing too extravagant today) so I threw on my leather jacket, scarf and fringed bag all of which I got for Christmas too. 

Did you all have a nice Christmas? What did you all get?

It's Christmas Eve

Miss Selfridge Leather Jacket (similar)  // Glamorous Turtleneck Dress // Deichmann Boots (similar)

What's this? Outside pictures on a decent camera ft. a never before seen leather jacket and boots that aren't DMs or pointed? Yup I'm at home, wearing my sister's clothes and using her camera. I don't think I've ever featured this dress on my blog, despite having had it for ages. It's super warm and perfect for the winter and a nice change to wearing all black! It's also pretty cheap, at £20 which for a decent quality dress it fairly reasonable!

I'm going to spend the next few days stuffing my face with pigs in blankets, sausage rolls and mince pies. Have an awesome Christmas! What are you all up to?

Top 5 Albums of 2016

I've spent a lot of 2016 listening to my old favourites but there have been a few new albums that I have loved so why not share them with you. I've also popped them all in a spotify playlist to make it easier for you. 

Slow Club - One Day All of This Wont Matter Anymore I have loved Slow Club for ages and their new album certainly did not disappoint and they are awesome live too. Best Track: In Waves

1975 - I Like it When You Sleep for you are so Beautiful yet so Unaware of it.
The second album from the northern group and, though it's a bit different to their first, it's so damn good, Best Track: Paris

Biffy Clyro - Ellipsis This is an album that I heard a lot when I was at work and, as with most Biffy albums, it's pretty awesome and catchy. Best Track: Animal Style

Blossoms - Blossoms I saw Blossoms at Boardmasters and they were amazing and then we had the album on a lot at work and I fell in love. They're an indie band with super catchy songs and a distinct style. Best Track: My Favourite Room

Glass Animals - How to be a Human Being Glass Animals are so chilled and I can't think of another band to compare them to but if you're into chilled indie music then they're for you. Best Track: Youth 

What albums have you enjoyed this year?

Cheap Frills

Primark Shirt // Topshop Skirt // H&M Boots

I've been eyeing up this shirt since I first saw it in Primark and have refrained from buying it. However I went in the other day and there it was reduced to half price. It had some make up stains on it, which is probably the reason these frills were cheap. However they have come out in the wash so it's not really a big deal. I think it will look great with just about everything but for today I'm wearing it with my topshop mini skirt and some pointed boots. The frills add some interesting detail to the outfit which otherwise may have been a tad plain. I definitely want to invest in more frills. Frills frills all round. 

Are you loving the frills trend at the moment?

Cord & Nude

Pink Topshop Top (similar)  // Brown Cord Primark Skirt // Primark Velvet Choker 

I've definitely shown this skirt and few times on my blog before but I've never featured this nude, slightly ribbed crop top from Topshop. When I say it's cropped, it is pretty short so if, like me you don't always like to show your midriff, you might want to opt for very highwaisted bottoms or keep your arms down because you will show your bra. I'm really into the brown and pink colour combination and it's something different to sticking to black all the time.

Grey Zara Knit

Zara Knit // Primark Super Cosy Tights // Doc Martens Shoes

I didn't realise that it had been a month since I had last last posted and now I'm really annoyed at myself. I've had a deadline every week for 3 weeks and it has killed me. Anyway I found some time to snap some photos. This is by far my favourite jumper that I own so I am surprised that I've never featured it on here before. It's so warm and comfy - the perfect staple for winter and so easy just to throw on. I had to put on a little black bodycon skirt underneath just to avoid flashing my butt you everyone cos y'all don't wanna see that.
