A Day With Lily

Hello, I hope you are all well. I would like to start off by saying I apologize for the lack of post this month, I thought I would be more frequent but I have been mega busy with work and other stuff. I hope I will become more consistent within the second half of my summer.

Yesterday I met up with Lily from Joli House, if you haven't looked at her blog I say please do, I love her blog and her style also reading about what she gets up to and what is on her mind. It was nice to have a proper meet up with her and have a relaxing day shopping, eating and chatting. My outfit ended up being everything New Look by pure coincidence. We began the day with shopping, well if you'd call bringing in the limit of clothes into the fitting room, then buying none of them because of the price shopping, we did that for a good hour. I really liked some of the items Lily tried on, other peoples person style really intrigues me.
Whilst the weather was good we went for a little stroll around winckley square and we had some strange encounters involving a dancing taxi man who went around the square just to continue on dancing to us, however whilst finding a place to eat, walking into a bar tender training session was very embarrassing to say so myself, but we just laughed it off.
We had a very spontaneous visit to Debenhams to the Urban Decay counter which ended up into us both getting our make-up done by Melissa. The eye shadow palettes from there are like the best in the world in my opinion, but the Urban Decay Electric Palette is literally the most colourful palette I've ever seen it's on my wishlist for the next payday. We experiment with the bold colours and used the colours 'Fringe & Freak' on the eyelids, 'Jilted' under the eye and 'Revolt' at the inner corner of the eye. You don't see much people with colour eye shadow around but with this palette is the perfect kit to brighten up your face.
Outfit Details:- Blazer, Cami Top, Ripped Jeans, Block Heel Sandals

Western Biker

First blog photos I’ve done in public out on the streets, I cringed whenever someone walked past however I got through it. My 'street style' is a simple outfit containing leather, denim and suede, three materials you just can't go wrong with especially in summer. 
I will praise ASOS for their most recent sale where I found this beautiful leather gilet, I needed a leather jacket of some sort in my wardrobe and this is easily a piece I will be wearing all year round and will never go out of fashion. The gilet brings the simple shirt and shorts ensemble a whole new approach and give the outfit more of an edgy feel to it. The SHOES are just heavenly and just another fringed item I own (if you haven't noticed yet, I just love fringed clothing, shoes and accessories). These heels brings such a different vibe I think and kind of give it a western feel in my opinion but the colours make this look have some personality within it.

Birthday Weekend, Wireless & London

Hope you're all well I'm finally 17, wow saying my new age makes me realize how little time I have left to avoid adult responsibilities. But I am happy to say that I have had the best birthday weekend ever, I say this almost every year but this time is has top all over birthdays. 

So after finishing college two days before, me and my boyfriend traveled down to London to attend Wireless festival which is luckily scheduled on my birthday weekend; it's my ideal festival as it's all Hip-Hop, R&B and a wide range of DJ's all the ones I like. I went last year just for one day and I saw Kanye West because he's my spirit rock, favorite artist and he was on my birthday, very emotional day yet one of my best. However I wanted to go for more of a weekend and have a better experience of festivals, being around music and happy people is just a place I never want to leave, I wish festivals were more frequent (and cheap).
Anyways after a delayed coach journey, we landed into London with enough time to eat, relax and get ready for the first day. So many good acts on that day but as Drake was headlining, sacrifices were made to get a good spot for him, staying at the main stage watching Major Lazer and ASAP Rocky was worth it. We got pushed and shoved in the crowd but we got to the barrier of drake, behind the VIP section and it was one of the best nights of my life, Drake is the top performer and when Skepta came on it was a different level. I will say being 5 foot does not do you justice at festivals, too small to actually see the acts but I enjoyed every minute of it.

My birthday was the second day and a relax morning is all I needed with my love one, we wasn't in such a rush to get to Wireless the second day but the wait was well worth it. Tents at festivals in my opinion are better than main stages, the atmosphere is just amazing from everyone. DJ Mustard was arguably one of the best acts of the weekend along with four others, every mix of old skool R&B and this years hip-hop anthems got everyone bouncing. Getting stages mixed up unfortunately for one act I regrettably missed, Kendrick truly got London bouncing and killed his set so much, M.A.A.D City was as mental as I imagined. Leaving straight after was a good shout, as getting transport home was a pure nightmare on the Friday, it was sure the best birthday and totally beat last year by far.
The Sunday was a little rushed trying to get to the coach on time, but we had more time on our hands when we thought and decided to become tourists for a few hours around London; visiting Covent Gardens, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey. Most definitely having to come back to London over the summer for a huge city tour. It was such a nice end to such an amazing weekend, I wish I captured more photos but I was taking everything in I completely forgot, can happily say it was the best birthday I've had, yet.
