Oi Maisie! Where Have You Been? |High Street Spy|

15 Sep

Hello my lovely, lovely readers,

Yes, I am still alive, but I have been absent from this page for a hell of a long time! For a while I’ve been doing 2 posts a week pretty well, even publishing guest posts while I was away on holiday, and then I have just stopped, so I hope you all remember who I am?

So I wasn’t sure whether to do a post like this, even though it’s just a load of shitty excuses and I promise I am not looking for sympathy, it’s just that a lot of you readers are more of friends and I asked you all on twitter, so I feel I should share with you all why I’ve been gone for a while now.

Okay, so it’s not that I haven’t written anything, I’ve written about 4 posts now, but I just didn’t want to post them because they were rubbish, even though I’ve posted things on here which I didn’t think were that amazing, these ones were just not up to standard and to be honest a bit boring. I wasn’t enjoying writing them at all and you could tell in my writing, I felt when I read them you could tell I was not enjoying them and I was writing any old rubbish just to fill a post and get it published. I tried again, starting a new post, and the same again, writing mediocre posts that I was forcing myself to write and you are choosing to use your time to read my posts so I feel if I’m taking some of your time, I want to give you something worth wasting your time over, not just a complete waste of time.

I’m not sure if I’ve lost my love for writing, or I’m just having a bit of a writer’s block (here’s hoping it’s a block.) I don’t hate writing at all, I’m pretty proud of how this blog is growing and growing, and I obviously love all the great friends I have made writing this, and reading other amazing blogs. Even though I haven’t been writing, I’ve still been reading all of your fantastic blogs. I’m still watching duh duh duh 😉 I’ve also had a spurt of pretty bad anxiety and what not, blame it on starting sixth form! But each time I do it kind of knocks my confidence in everything and it takes a while to build it back up and get back to doing what I love. So many of you have offered guest posts, but with 2 already up, I would feel like I was taking advantage to take these from you and would make me seem like a rubbish blogger, so I feel my next post needs to be written by me, and so far it’s taken me a long time to write that post.

I guess I need to get my head back to normal, get out of this sticky patch and trust me I will be back. (Hopefully better than ever, but I’m not making any promises 😉 ) I may even end up posting the posts I deemed as completely rubbish, obviously with quite a lot of editing to take the boring tone off it and you guys might end up loving them. Thank you for all my followers still being here, and weirdly going up still. As I am writing this I am just under 20 followers from 400 followers. Which mean my blog has grown in stats so quickly over the past few months, 1) This average blog with a funny name written by an average teenager  doesn’t deserve them and 2) That is completely crazy so thank you so much!

I hope you all can understand my absence from my blog for a bit. This is definitely not goodbye, it’s more of a see you later, and I promise I will be back very soon and I bloomn’ hope it is worth the wait! ❤

See you soon,

Maisie x 

P.S Thank you to all my blogging and real life friends for all your support and love. You are all very special people who I love very much. xxx

 Hello beauties,

Hope you are all well? So today I collected all my favourite pink tone bits and bobs and took a photo, it’s weirdly satisfying to collect all of the same colour together, so I hope you enjoy this as much as myself. 😉

Spring Fever Tag… |High Street Spy|

21 Apr

Hello lovelies,

I am back, I have done 90% of my revision which gives me time to finish off this post which has been in my drafts for almost a month now!

spring fever tag

It’s starting to feel slightly spring like outside, which means it was perfect timing to get tagged to do the Spring Fever Tag by the lovely Blushing Beauty. Why not go and follow her? (After you’ve read this of course.)

1) What eye pallete will you use most this spring?

To be honest I don’t really have a lot of palletes, but a while back I won a Beauties Factory pallete which has some really nice browns and neutral matte colours within but also some really pretty pinks I’d love to try out this spring, then step out of my comfort zone.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

2)What blusher in your collection is a Spring must? And what about lipstick too?

The blusher I will be using a lot more is the Bourjois cream blush in a light coral colour which I haven’t used in a while. I have a olive skin tone so I think corals really compliment my skin but don’t look really obvious and make more of a subtle blush. My lipstick pick is the Revlon lip butter in Candy Apple, which is a coral/ red colour which I think will look really fresh and bright for spring, what I love about the lip butters and you can build up the colour or leave it as a subtle glossy look.

3)What nail polish do you love to wear in Spring?

As soon as it gets a bit more summery I whip out the brighter colour, and pastels as well but I really want to try out these blue tone polishes: Seventeen Gel Colour, Maybelline Color Show, and Barry M Gelly polish.

4)What is on your Spring break agenda?

Going on holiday, sunbathing, long walks, photography, meeting friends  

Revising for my exams in the summer. Yay.

5)What trends are you looking forward too, fashion nail polish make up etc?

Corals are my favourite when it comes to make-up. I really want matte lips to go out of trend, because I really dislike that look! To read my top spring lipsticks click here.

6)What is your signature Spring scent?

At the moment I’m avoiding sprays because it sets off my hay fever sniffling. Great.

7)Do you have a Spring skincare regime?

I’m trying to moisturise as much as I can, every morning I do a full body moisturisation to get my skin nice and soft for prom.

8)What is Spring like where you live?

At the moment the sun is shining, but the weather report has shown me that it will be back to English weather in not too long.

9)Florals, got to have them or make them stop?

Got to have them, but they aren’t very original are they?

10)Favourite activity to do in the Spring?

Going for a stroll up to the park with my camera, sitting on my favourite bench, watching the world go by and watching the pretty view.

Hope you all had a great Easter, I tag you all to do this but I would really like the Lauren’s to do this if you haven’t already!

My Fabulous Blog Picks: March Edition… |High Street Spy|

23 Mar

Hello beauties,

Once again I am going to do a once a month post, but this time I want to share with you my top 3 favourite and fabulous blog/ bloggers of that month. Of course I have more than 3 favourites but I wanted to write about them as well and I didn’t want to write about 50 people in one big post because that would be super boring! Please don’t get upset or angry at me because I am lucky enough to have a lot of bloggers as my friends, so each month I will select just 3, so at some point or another I shall gush about how much I love you. Promise. So what I am going to do is each month pick 3 of my favourite, write why they are my favourite and you lovely people who are reading this post will go and follow them to see for yourself why they are my favourite. Sound good right? *Yes you all shout at your screens* Let’s get started then!

1. Kavi Chick 2000

kavi

Firstly Kavi deserves an award for dealing with me first of all, she is there all the time when I’m having a freak out over the littlest things and always manages to make me laugh! This girls blog is just fabulous for the following reasons: she includes all her own pictures and just the right amount, that means if you aren’t in the mood for loads of wording or feeling lazy you can just scroll away at all the lovely pictures. Her blog is funny and witty which is my favourite type of blog. She doesn’t blog about crazy expensive things us teenagers can no way afford with our own money. She is also my first proper blogging friend and I can’t wait until I get to meet my gal, because she’s beyond awesome.

2. Grow into your Dreams

grow

Now to someone I know in the real world, Lauren! I decided to include this Lauren into the first if these posts is because she’s very new to WordPress, but still her posts are as good, if not better than people that have been blogging for 3 years (eg me!) She deserves way more likes and comments, because I predict her blog is going to be growing and growing! (see what I did there? 😉 ) So jump onto Lauren’s bandwagon early so you can say, ‘I followed her blog when she first started.) You won’t regret it because her posts are really lovely, just like Lauren herself.

3. Blushing Beauty

blushing

Another one of my blogging friends, and the last one for this month! This young ladies blog is really sweet and lovely, but also really helpful; at the moment she has been writing a series Guide to Blogging, which is super useful if you are just starting out or want to read another young bloggers take on things. Her blog also doesn’t include products that our out of my price range which is one thing I always look for when following blogs. This is a must have blog for your dash, because like all the blog I can see it getting bigger and better in the future!

I hope you all go and check out my top 3 blogs for March because they are all amazing! But the question is who will it be next month? Will it be you? (Ohhhhhh’ the suspense, it’s killing me!)

Link me up to your blogs/ favourite blogs by commenting below or writing me a tweet. (You’ll find my twitter in the bar on the right, why not give me a follow?)

That’s all for today, so see you soon,

The 5″8, Size 6 Girls…|High Street Spy|

1 Mar

Hello lovely’s

The fashion weeks come and go, and each time raises the issues of the size of the models who walk the catwalks, normally 5″8 minimum height, with the size 6 frame. Before we get too into this, these are just my thoughts that I hope will provoke thought from you lot, so you do not in any way have to agree with me and also if there are comments please respect other people’s views on the matter of size.

So basically as I write this I am tucking into 2 digestives and a cup of tea (one sugar) and feel a bit conflicted as a teenage girl, you need to be happy in your body, but you also can’t be ‘big’ because that is obesity, which is considered bad? I guess that’s what confuses me, because if I was a size 16, I am meant to feel confident and happy, but then also should be considering weight loss. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel the line between obesity and size have been blurred and as a teenager it’s hard to understand what is correct? And that has inspired this post.

Okay, back to body image in fashion. 2 or 3 years ago this subject really interested me, I even made a YouTube video about it being the frizzy haired opinion filled 13 year old I was, but now I’m older and more into high end fashion I feel I can look at high fashion models in a different light. Firstly I think that we need to establish that high fashion and high street fashion are very different, which is very apparent in the photo below. (No offence if you wear hats like that.)

daks

So if the clothes are so different, why should the models not be different. The models used in high end fashion are 5″8, size 6 girls because the clothes are designed for that and look the most effective to be shown in that way, in a way they are hangers. Hangers display the clothes and hang in the best way, and they all look the same because that design works the best. The models just display the clothes, you are not looking at the model themselves, unless they are the famous sort, you are looking at the clothes, so if they were different it would take from the clothes. Of course, I do not in any way agree with models who starve themselves, high fashion has always had this template of model, therefore it will be so hard to change. But these women who walk the catwalks are still ‘real women’; I hate when people say ‘real women should walk the catwalk’, ‘they aren’t real women’, ‘real women aren’t in fashion’. Well however big or small, short or tall a women is, they are very much alive and have boobs upon their chests (even if they are tiny) they are real women.

People are forever mocking high fashion, laughing at the crazy designs, and how they don’t look like ‘normal’ clothes most of us wear, so if we don’t expect high fashion to look like how we dress everyday, we shouldn’t expect the women to look like us, because most of us would never wear those clothes out to Tescos would we? In a way high fashion is like an art gallery, we go to art galleries to admire the art, sometimes it’s crazy or just a chair in the middle of the room, we admire it for what it is and the thought and effort that has gone into it, but we would never have it in our house, but instead buy more commercial art. Just like what we wear. High fashion and high street need to be seen and appreciated in completely different ways, just like art. Along with the models.

Then it comes onto high street models, this is where I believe the whole ‘be happy in your size message’ should be seen more, because these are the ‘normal clothes’. Where girls with of all sizes, curves or not, should be celebrated because these are the clothes we all wear. Instead of trying to change something that doesn’t even apply to many of us, high end fashion, we should change what really does. But this does not mean get rid of the size 6 high street models, because size 6 girls still exist, as much as a size 16. Clothes should be modeled on a mix of girls in fashion campaigns, so it becomes the ‘norm’ not just replace all the smaller models. Like a pick n’ mix of mix of women. Oh’ but it doesn’t end there, throw in some different ages along with the different sizes and boom perfect pick n’ mix. (I like pick n’ mix) In a way I think that will help my confusion with body image.

A pick n’ mix style M&S advertising campaign

 I was a bit nervous about posting this because I know people have lots of different opinions on this topic, but I hope you can appreciate my thoughts and if you have your own, please feel free to comment them below because I love a debate. 😉 I could have gone on longer but I didn’t want to bore you, but if you liked this rant style post, let me know and I’ll give you some more of my thoughts on some more fashion/ beauty topics.

Does this count as a rant? Because I got quite a few of you wanting more Maisie rants.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

What I Brought Myself for Valentines…

8 Feb

Hello lovelies,

So yes, I decided to do a valentines post. After um-ing and ahh-ing over whether I actually wanted to to anything for Valentines, I decided I would but only because I have some bits and bobs to share with you all. Personally valentines day is great when your all disgustingly loved up, but when you’re not, you sort of it on the sidelines of the ‘love bubble’ feeling slightly bitter about the whole thing, secretly wishing you were part of it. (Or is that just me?) Personally I’m not completely for valentines day, I mean, if you love someone, you should show them you love them all year round and celebrate that love all year not just once a year, but then again this might just be me being bitter over the whole thing again.

Anyway, if you are in a relationship or not, you can still read my blog. 😉 So because I am a single pringle (other crisps are available), I decided to buy some presents for myself, not intentionally but I thought it fitted the post nicely, so let’s pretend they were especially for valentines.

5 out of 6 of the things I brought online. I know, not a big deal especially for an internet obsessed like myself, but I’ve always been scared of buying clothes online especially. Unless you’ve tried them on in the store firstly, it’s like playing clothes roulette. Am I a 8 or a 10? What if it’s too short? Then you have to wait for it to come, before realising you have been way too optimistic with your sizing! But luckily, all the times I’ve ordered anything online, nothing has had to be sent back. Oh’ and is it just me that gets slightly nervous when you get to entering the card details bit?

Boohoo.com Laura Checked Collar Print Dress~ £18

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When I stumbled across this on the Boohoo.com website, I really loved it, the collar and the monochrome tartan print. I was actually just going to buy one of the Boohoo dresses, which was probably going to be the daisy print one, but I’m glad I got this one because monochrome never goes out of fashion. I am going to wear this next week, with tights and black heeled boots when I go out for a meal and then to the theatre with my Nannie. But hopefully this dress will see me through until the summer, as I can wear it without tights when it warms up.

Boohoo.com Delia Daisy Print Shift Dress~ £18

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Shift dresses are in at the moment, so I thought I’d invest in it for spring/summer, the fabric itself is sheer and lightweight, so it will be perfect with sandals in the summer. The print is really individual and it just hangs really nicely, that can be dressed up too. I am really impressed the quality and considering I only ordered it yesterday night, the service is equally as fabulous.

Topshop Midi Ring~ £3

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve wanted a midi ring for a while now, so when I saw this in the sale I had to pick it up, but after wearing it as a midi I’ve realised I find them half way up my finger pretty annoying. So I wear it as a pinky ring instead, but I still love the vintage style design of this ring.

Stephanie Ever After Bow~ £5

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Okay, this is isn’t a recent purchase but it’s sort of valentines theme right? When I stumbled across this hair accessory brand on Etsy, I fell in love with it. Over the Christmas period I wore it basically everyday, and just made any hair do 100% better. She has brought out an equally gorgeous and sparkly valentines range, and she also sells the best flower crowns you can just tell are made with love. I totally recommend you go and check this boutique on Etsy.

Plume Leotard~ £9.95

Plume Ballet Tights (in pink)~ £3.95

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Both these items are from dancedirect.com, a go to website for all dancer looking for a bargain. This items are essentials for me because I’ve been borrowing my friend Lauren’s leotard and tights for weeks now, so now she gets a new pair of tights too. 😉 (Correction, she doesn’t. I only ordered one pair. Opps. Sorry Lauren.)

Hope you all liked the presents I brought for myself to make up for receiving nothing this year. Oh’ and if you aren’t in the sickening bubble known as love, you can be my valentine? 😉

Love

The Unlimited Budget Haul…

2 Feb

Hello and welcome to another Sunday Post!

By the title of this post you might be like, ‘whattttt, Maisie had an unlimited amount of money to go shopping with!” Well, no I didn’t but I really wish I did, instead I pretended I had unlimited money and did a bit of online shopping to see what I would buy with an ‘unlimited’ budget. So I guess it’s more of a wish list, but I called it a haul because we are pretending, and pretending is fun right? Also all the things I have included are not exactly, ‘high street’ items like I would usually blog about, because I have an unlimited pretend budget I wanted to show you all the high end products I would buy in my dreams.

Also I thought this could be a kind of a tag also, so if you want to use this post and do your own unlimited budget haul, just steal it, and comment below the link to your post so I can see what you would buy, because I am tagging everyone who is reading this.

*Benefit Pore-fessional Primer

This is a small selection of the things I would buy if I had an unlimited budget, because I would go crazy if I really did have that much money to spend and buy a whole shopping centre for myself and a car to go around it in.

What would be the top of your list if you had an unlimited budget? Would you go to Boots first or are you more of a clothes, bag, and shoe person? Also remember to comment your post if you do it too.

See you soon,

Flower Girl Dress, Designed & Made By Me…

19 Jan

Hello everyone,

Currently having a break from homework to blog about what’s been going on in my life at the moment and one of which was I finished my last GCSE textiles project this week. The second project at GCSE is to pick either 2 cushions, an women’s sleeveless dress or a flower girl dress to design, make and evaluate. Personally I am a lover of children’s wear just because it’s 100 times easier then women’s fashion, just because you can be over the top but because it’s for children it is totally acceptable, that’s why I chose to do a flower girls dress, but I also wanted to try and make a higher quality item and test myself.

photo

Above is a photograph of my notebook and a paint colour chart, (that I later drew all over) that I took with me when I went to the fabric shop. As my design work is all at school on big A3 pages, I don’t have a picture of that unfortunately but the really quick sketch I drew for the lady in the shop shows a bit of my limited art skills, but I did stick to my design pretty well. The pattern for the dress was brought from John Lewis and luckily went up to size 7-8, which I wanted for my dress so it would fit my lovely little model Zoe. But on that visit I gained a £20 John Lewis gift card, due to the staff being extremely rude and unhelpful to me, pretty disappointing as it was my first time using the John Lewis haberdashery department that was actually pretty confusing. (I’ve been slightly scared to go back since because I complained. Eeeek.)

photo 1

I’m not the best at the whole making of textiles, but after doing this I can see I’m not completely hopeless and I’ll improve going onto study A-Level fashion next year. I prefer the designing stages because I’ve just always preferred drawing and the ideas behind fashion, not actually the whole materialization of it. (Literally when it comes to textiles.) From the beginning I knew I wanted to use lace and pastel colours, because I love that combination and wanted my flower girl dress to be worn during the spring. I’m a believer in simple, and classic when it comes to weddings, so I tried to get that idea across in my design. Oh yeah and of course my favourite colour, pink!

photo 2

Flower girl= flowers, so I made a big-ish flower using the same material as the rest of the dress, even though it looks darker because I melted the edges of it to make it look wrinkled, and sewed on the same pearls as the ones I (painstakingly) hand sewed onto the lace. In total I couldn’t actually say how long this took me to make, but after a lot of unpicking and beading, I am pretty happy with the end result. Now I need to do more paper work (yawn) and have it modelled so I can snap some photos, and edit them. (Is it bad to say that’s one of my favourite parts of the whole project?)

flower girl dress 1

It needs a good press but here it is, a dress I hope Barbie, Elle Woods, and maybe Audrey Hepburn (because it’s vintage and all) would be happy with. 🙂

What do you guys think? Feedback from you lovely lot would be greatly appreciated.

P.S My prom is coming up in a few months and I am struggling big time to find a dress that other people won’t have. If you know a good website/ brand to get affordable, prom dresses please let me know. Mwah. x

Today I’m Wearing…

Hello lovelies,

I haven’t done a look post for a while so I thought whilst I look half decent I will share what I am wearing this grey and freezing Sunday. But because I was feeling slightly lazy, I couldn’t be bothered to set up the tripod and do a sort of awkward posing photoshoot with me as the model and photographer, so I did it in little bits for you all.

What I’ve Been Loving at the Moment…

11 Jan

Hello,

Hope your 2014s have been amazing so far?

*COLLABORATION ALERT*

So a little while ago I met Eden (E_GLITTER) on Instagram and instantly loved her pictures, then I saw she has a blog on BlogSpot and of course I had to have a look, and it’s a goodn’. Her blog posts and photos are charming and cute, so into the bookmarks her little blog went. Not only is her blog charming and cute, so is Eden herself, Eden and I bonding over a love of Harry Potter and blogging. She’s only 14, so I predict her blog is going to get bigger and better! Before Christmas I dropped her a message to ask about a collab post, and this post was born! (Completely Eden’s idea!)

edens blog

So after you’ve read this post, go and have a sneaky look at Eden’s wonderful blog to read her half of the collaboration by clicking right here.

So here’s what I’ve been loving right now… 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

*Yoshi Satchel Bag 

One of my Christmas presents, that is currently a bit too small to fit all my essential (rubbish) I need in for school because it is real leather. So at the moment it’s sitting there all puffed out with a big towel inside of it to hopefully stretch the leather a bit.The colour is just gorgeous, you may be able to tell by now what sort of colours I tend to go for, but my dad actually picked this for me. I am extremely impressed of course!

*One Direction Our Moment Perfume 

I don’t feel I need to explain why this is a favourite. But it smelly pretty fantastic besides the fact it is by 5 sex gods.

*TopShop Socks

I have had these frilly socks a little while but recently invested in some more darker coloured ones that aren’t so ‘in your face’. Of course I brought 3 pairs (3 for £8 as I’m sure you are all aware. 😉 ) The grey ones I wear the most because they go with most and I’m boring, but today I have sky blue ones on because I’m feeling in a cheerful kind of mood.

*Elle Magazine 

One of my favourite fashion publications out there, I’m a glossy kind of magazine girl oppose to gossip. My dream is to have my names in one of the side bars in Elle, writing about how I’m drooling over  a certain handbag and shoe combo or solving make-up dilemmas. A girl can dream right?

*Bourjois Cream Blush 

I love their normal blush but they are usually a bit pricey for me, so when the sales came round I picked up both Bourjois products in this post. I love the creaminess of the blush and how you can just dab a little bit on the apples of your cheeks with your finger and it instantly brightens up your appearance without looking clown like.

*Soap & Glory Mother Pucker Gloss Sticks 

A present a got from my birthday from my best ones Ellie and Sarah, and the first Soap & Glory make-up I actually own and they are very impressive. First of all, may we all take a moment to admire the name of the product, a little bit naughty Soap & Glory, but also the 3 sticks inside themselves; nudist, fuchsia-ristic, and plum jam. I would like to give whoever thought of the names of this an imaginary crown, because they are pure genius.

*Bourjois Color Boost Lipstick 

The other product that I picked up in Boots sale land, and it’s as good as everyone says they are. Promise. The colour I got (Red Sunrise) is quite a pinky, summer colour, maybe a bit bright for now so I tend to dab it down a bit but I predict I will still be loving it in the summer.

*The Fault in Our Stars by John Green on Kindle 

I actually started reading this before Christmas but stopped due to exam revision, but when I saw it on the kindle for 99p I had to download it. (I actually thought they must have priced it wrong or it wasn’t the real book at first!) Just before I finished this post I finished the book that I only started 2 days ago and I still have a lump in my throat. I always feel a bit of a fraud starting a book that is already so well know and raved about, but I decided to jump on the band (book) wagon, and I’m extremely glad I did. John Green you literally genius, not only did you make me cry at a book since Marley and Me, but you also made me realize how special life is. I am all hyped for the film now! Woo. Just downloaded Looking For Alaska so I’ll fill you in on how that one compares.

*Harry Potter, Blott & Paperchase notebooks

You guys probably know I have a fetish for notebooks, and these beauties are my newest purchases (and present from Lauren.) The beach one is my GCSE dance choreography notes, that I started to make at ballet yesterday. Oh’ notebooks, why do you have this hold over me?

Hope you all liked this collab post and Eden’s blog/ post as much as I do!

Remember to go read her post here

(I linked it twice, just to be super sure you went and read it. You better. Go on. Do it.)

See you all soon
