The Pink Edit… |High Street Spy|

13 Jul

 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. ūüėČ

The Dancer Project…

21 Feb

 Hello,

So I asked a few of you if you wanted to see some more dance related posts and you said yes so hope you like this post.

So the other day my friend Lauren¬†(her blog is brill & very dance if you are into that) took me and another Lauren¬†(another brill blog and it’s new, so go follow her) around out town to take pictures for her art project. The project is based on pictures by ‘The Dancers Among us’ and ‘The Ballerina Project’ which are really cool picture projects that put dancers in normal situations. If you are a dancer, give them a Google. ūüėČ We live in a small town and not New York so the pictures don’t look as impressive as the city shots but I still think they came out pretty great. One thing I learnt from this shot was that doing pointe on wet grass/ on a bench/ on a swing/ on a tree/ tree stump is very hard, in a lot of the grass pictures I am sinking with horrible feet and legs. Please ignore them.

We went up to the park and then to the library because, why not? A pair of caked in mud pointe shoes and ballet shoes, and mud splattered tights later these were the results after we spent a day freezing our buns off. (Do you get it? Buns. Butts.)

My Trip to Cornwall (A.K.A My Happy Place)…

2 Sep

Hello beauties,

So I’m going back to school in just over 2 day (boo) and I want to try and blog once or twice more just before I have to crack down on work and blogs will become less regular because of that. Wish things didn’t have to be that way but that’s just the way it is folks! (Another reminder that at 100 followers there will be a give away and that is getting ever closer so yay! Get following!)

If you’ve read my previous post (if you haven’t, please do) you will know I’ve been to Cornwall again with my family for our regularly yearly trip in a caravan. Also before we get too far into the post, I must inform you that this will be a very photo heavy post so be prepared for some scrolling and admiring, so if you’re feeling a little peckish go grab a snack, maybe a rich tea or some pringles? Oh’ and it may get a little deep, so pop on your snorkel while you’re at it! Enjoy!

Look! A Harry Style ;)

Look! A Harry Style ūüėČ

So even though I’ve gone to Cornwall a¬†over 4 times now, this time¬†did seem a little different. Normally after a week stuck in a very confined space with my family I’m more than happy to get back home but¬†on the last few days I began to get really sad and really didn’t want to leave, even though it would mean sleeping on a really skinny bed. (Why can’t caravans just have normal width beds, I will never know?) Not only would I¬†miss the very attractive surf instructor who I had a nice bit of harmless flirting with, I would also just miss that place in general. The beach, the sun, the smells, knowing I was completely free with nothing to worry about. I made sure I’d done all my homework before I left and all I took with me was a notebook and a magazine in French. (And clothes of course, I didn’t go noody the whole time.)

What? There's a surfer there? Oh' I didn't notice, I took it for artist purposes only. Promise.

What? There’s a surfer there? Oh’ I didn’t notice, I took it for artist purposes only. Promise.

I was nice not having to think about stuff or stress about exams and homework and just chill out and admire the beautiful surfers and that is why I didn’t want to come home.

I’m in love…

On the night before we left, me and mum took a walk along the headland around where I was staying and even though I was happy, I was hit with sadness and I wanted to just sit on the beach looking out to sea because I knew it was going to be to the last time I was going to be there in over a year due to revising and also the last time I was going to be there without the stress and worry of exams. Which is beyond scary and really weird all at the same time.

I also realised I wasn’t a child anymore, even though I act like one when I’m on holiday and still like to act like a child I knew I’m not one. In a few months I turn 16, which just seems so old to me, like a really massive leap for me. Like I really am a teenager now, no turning back. At 16 you can have a big party and do other stuff… We won’t go into that but you get my drift. Then in a year I can drive. What? That just seems mad to me. Really crazy. It seems like yesterday that I was in year 4, playing games with my friends in the playground and the idea of being 16 seemed so old and exciting, and also so far away. But it really wasn’t. I was excited for make-up, and the floods of boys wanting to¬†date me left right and centre¬†(Disney channel makes it seem that dating is the easiest thing in the world, so wrong Disney. Very wrong) and parties, but truthfully is really is a big pain in the bottom.

Don't look down!

Don’t look down!

(Take your snorkel off now, you’re out of the deep!) So when I was in Cornwall I achieved something that I will add to the not real list of things I’ve achieved this summer, which was. I surfed. Yes, I stood up on the surf board and I really, really surfed the whole wave. Well yeah it only happened once, but after about 4 surf lessons I finally was successful! Then I stood up a few times for shorter periods of times but I was so happy and my surf instructor gave me a cheeky cheer and a thumbs up (eeeeek!)

Does anyone know what this beautiful bird is?

So that was my very thoughtful trip to Cornwall along side some of my favourite pictures I took (I had to choose from over 600 photos otherwise you’d be overdosed on my photos!) I’m going to go into this year feeling confident, new start and all that, and hopefully it won’t be another year until I go back there again. If you want a nosey at what a brought, take a look at my previous post!

I hope you’ve all had a lovely summer too?

OOTD (field day)…

7 Aug

The other day I went round my friend Abbie’s house and during the very short amount of time it wasn’t raining, we decided to go for a walk to be all artistic and take some pretty pictures, we ended up walking along a country path and ending up at a small country house surrounded by really beautiful fields and woodland. We completely explored the place and I can imagine it would have been even better if there was actually sun in the sky and it was warmer, and even though it was pretty close to a main road and near the town, it seemed we were right in the middle of the countryside. It also seemed the perfect place for Abbie to take a picture of what I was wearing that day for my field day edition of OOTD.

My ‘A Dress a Day’ blog post…

7 Aug

So recently I was doing a bit of online shopping and came across a website called adressaday.co.uk, what they do is they offer all their users a chance to get a different dress each day at a crazily great discount price. Other websites like this I’ve seen offer discounts of dresses from unknown brands but unlike them, A Dress a Day have dresses from high street brands like New Look, boohoo.com, Ted Baker and many more, you just have to check their website everyday and they might have a dress for you. I really recommend you check out their website and keep it as a favourite, as you never know, that dress you’ve been admiring might be super cheap!

Anyway, whilst I was clicking around their website I saw that they were starting up a blog and were looking for bloggers to write posts for it, and all you had to do was e-mail them with name, blog details and what you would write about if you were picked to be a featured blogger on their site. I wrote my e-mail and send it off, and the day later they e-mailed me back, telling me I’d been picked to be their blogger and to make start on my blog post. After a little happy dance, I wrote my blog post and edited my image to go with it which I checked over 100000 times, (a bit exaggerated) to make sure I hadn’t made a stupid spelling or grammar mistake, as I am a bit lazy when it comes to proof reading my blog.

It was weird writing for a different site besides High Street Spy, I’d never really done that, and it also meant I had to write like I was writing to people who didn’t know me and hadn’t previously read any of my other posts and got me yet. It also needed to be a little bit different, not just a OOTD or review, it needed to have more of a purpose behind it and interesting to read. So this was what I titled it, ‘How to: Stay on Trend on a Teenager’s budget’.

I’d love it if you could have a cheeky little look at it by clicking on the screen shots of¬†my¬†post¬†below, and tell me what you think of it because that would make me a very happy girl!

Look it's my blog on their website (whoop whoop!) Click on this photo to read my post!

If you read it thank you very much and thanks to everyone at A Dress a Day for the opportunity to spread my blogging wings. At the end of this week, I’ll post up the blog post on here, but you should read it on the site anyway!

See you soon!

The last 6 months in pictures…

23 Jun

So we’re basically half way through the year now, which is crazy because it seems like yesterday it was Christmas and my birthday and now it’s (meant to be) summer. It also means in a few days time I’ve had my super amazing camera (a¬†Olympus STYLUS SP- 820UZ¬†if you were¬†wondering)¬†for 6 months and in this time I must of taken hundreds of photos because wherever I go, my camera comes with me. So I thought I’d put together in this post all my favourite photos from the past few months to show you all, enjoy!

One of the first photos of 2013, managed to use the sparklers without burning my hand off!

A really fat big that refused to move on a farm in the Cotswolds! Considering they were making this breed of pigs into sausages in the shop a few metres away, I wouldn't be a happy piggy either!

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside, especially when the beach houses are painted like Dulux colour charts!
