Ensuring You Won't Forget Me.

Well I've been a little bit busy lately. I'm guessing you can tell since I haven't done a post since.... the 6th of December  wow. apologies.

So here is a post I was obviously meant to do a while back but never did. Yeah

I have been mega non stop with work/buying presents/wrapping presents/giving presents out that amongst all the commotion I haven't even had a split second to take photos for my poor little blog. I took a few snaps the other day, In the dark, and was rushing that much that I didn't even put any lippy on! making my whole outfit instantly look 90% shitter.

What I Am Wearing
Top-Anciently old-Topshop
Skirt-Sale Steal-Topshop
Granddad Cardigan-New Look
Creepers-New Look
Collar Necklace-New Look
Frilly socks-Asda-kids section

So basically I look a mess, I had been running round like a maniac all day buying the last of the Christmas presents which thankfully I have now finished! I might actually be able to get a decent photo tomorrow for the next blog! (not promising anything)

Oh, you like my frilly socks do you? Well apparently my feet are that small that I can fit into kids socks, which is a bonus because these frilly socks were Cheap as chips compared to the ridiculous price they are charged elsewhere! I think ill stick to the kids section in Asda!

It's nice to be back.

Much Love

I always did it like a real rebel would


I've been to a few concerts lately, which I haven't yet had the opportunity to grace you with the stories. Your in for a treat...

I went to see the vaccines on the 29th of November, I have seen them once before when they supported the Arctic Monkeys and their vocals were a bit rubbish and you couldn't really hear them, this time you could hear what they were saying but I could hardly pay attention to the concert as it was just mental.
Constant pushing from all angles, we were literally falling all over the place. My main priority was not to let me or my sister die. Sophie actually fell over (almost) if it wasn't for me grabbing her by the collar like a pup and dragging her back to the surface she may have died (either by being trampled or eventually strangled by yours truly)

Other than the fact that we couldn't see and I have to fight numerous blokes to protect my sister the concert was amazing! It was just a shame that the majority of the girls there were drunken 14 year olds who needed a good slapping.

Anywho! This is what I wore :) Who knew velvet would be all in this year (apparently) I brought this dress in the sale last year from Topshop and now velvet is all the rage...

What I Am Wearing
Red Velvet Skater Dress-Topshop-Sale
Oversized Floral Shirt-Vintage
Creepers-New Look
Necklace-New Look
Parka Jacket - New Look

Also went to see a concert in WALSALL! (yes that's right, Walsall actually put a decent music festival on)
a few bands and acoustic acts played before Reverend and the Makers took to the stage.
It's Weird having actual music people playing in Walsall, this has never actually happened in my lifetime, Hopefully Walsall will start doing more of these nights, as it was actually rather brilliant!

Once again its not the first time I've seen Reverend & The Makers in concert, I saw them once at Birmingham too and they were also brilliant then. Once again Jon McClure took the concert outside and played us another mini acoustic sing along session, The Saturday Night clubbers seemed bewildered by the crowd of Indies surrounding a guy with a guitar all singing along, It was quite amusing.

I didn't get a photo of my outfit, but I managed to get a close up of the lead singer :)

I'll leave you along with a song from each artist! If ever you have an opportunity to see a concert, just go! You only live once remember so make as many memories as possible!

Much Love!

About your dress

I actually own jeans now. I hate them with a passion. I just feel so horrible when I wear jeans, and so normal. Although I love the christmassy period, I feel as though I am just fighting through the cold to get to the sun! bring on the summer.

Despite it being cold I try as often as possible to wear my skirts and dresses with thick tights, which is what I have done today!

What I Am Wearing
Skirt-New Look-£14.99
Top-New Look-£9.99
Knitted Tights-New Look-£4.99
Collar Necklace-New Look-£6.99
Patent Creepers-New Look-£24.99

Yes I am wearing a whole new look outfit! I do like New Look, don't get me wrong, but my charity and vintage shopping days are missed terribly! around Christmas with the amount of hours at work and spare time spent sorting Christmas gifts, I have no time for my little shopping adventures. I miss finding the treasures you find in an old vintage shop! I definitely need to organise a shopping trip after the holidays.

Today's blog title is based on a Maccabes song, a new love of mine, and this is one of my faves by them. ENJOY!
