On Sunday I went to V-Festival at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, and it was literally one of the best things! The atmosphere was amazing, and the whole day was perfect. There were so many different outfits, from some dressed as smurfs to those in floral headbands and black wellies!
I wore denim shorts (Topshop), black wellies, a white crop top (Primark), a floral headband (Primark), and various necklaces..
We saw so many artists- Calvin Harris, The Vaccines, Stereophonics, Kings of Leon, Ellie Goulding, Olly Murs, The Saturdays and more.
I particularly liked this backpack and floral headband;
Ice creams; milkshakes; photos; sun and Annabel- pretty much sums up the lovely day we had at the beach at the weekend! Annabel took me to Aldeburgh yet again (see my previous Aldeburgh post here), and I had a lovely time exploring Aldeburgh and Thorpeness, which are both beautiful coastal towns in the English county of Suffolk.
I wore a burgundy cardigan (Primark), a ruffled top (Topshop), blue converse, suede leggings, and pearl earrings (Accessorize). We also made a quick visit to Southworld and it’s pier, where we also had lunch and also explored!
The beach at Aldeburgh had lots of boats on, which were perfect to take some artsy photos..!
Our icecreams from a shop in Aldeburgh, I was so excited when they had gluten free cones available aha
Haven’t written in such a long time, literally because I’ve barely seen shopping recently or done anything exciting so thought I wouldn’t bore you guys
Anyway, even when I did go shopping (with fashion blogger Zoe) I found nothing I went looking for, or at least found most things I went in for but nothing in my size! It was so annoying and i’d been so excited as well to go shopping. I’m looking forward to summer so much and the weather started to actually get better, every day I just get more and more excited. I’ve got 7 days until my last exam and then that’s me done at school woooo, so summer holidays will be a month earlier this year yay
After my depressing shopping trip, I decided to have a search on the internet to make me feel better. Even though the online shops still didn’t have what i wanted in my size online, i found some other cute picks which I’ve put on my June 2013 wishlist. There’s not too many as of yet, and besides it is only the 5th.
These white high waisted shorts are absolutely gorgeous, or at least they seem perfect from Topshop’s online photo. The light material means they are perfect for summer whilst the shape is just so simply flattering. You might not be able to see from the photo but they have small, cute little flowers embroided in the lace.
I don’t usually go for these sort of tops but I tried this on in the shop seeing as Zoe was trying something on too. I absolutely adore the pattern and the vibrant colours, and it would go nicely with some high waisted shorts or a skirt (see no. 6).
I was overjoyed when i saw this on H&M’s website, as first of all i thought hey it’s a nice top, but when i saw the price things just got better. At only £4.99 it seems a massive bargain, and so perf to go with everything. It is open-work lace and I can imagine it’s perfect for sliding on over a bikini after a dip in the pool on holiday. It’s available in cream (like the colour of the top in no. 5), which I think I would go for considering the weather.
Okay so I know what you’re probably thinking, how on earth are these appropriate for the sunny weather? Yeah me too but I seriously think these are amazing. I tried some on similar in Primark and they were beautiful, but for £15 in Primark I thought they weren’t worth it for the quality. Boohoo, Asos and MissGuided all have practically identical leggings for only £5 more which I think is worth it because of the higher quality. They probably aren’t best for summer because I’d totally bake in them but just wanted to share my thoughts on them!
This is really quite similar to number 3, but slightly different! It has gorgeous sequin embellishments over it and is sleeveless. I probably wouldn’t buy both 3 and this one, plus also there is quite a big price difference.
This is one of the items of clothing I’ve been wanting for quite a while now, and I’ve been in several times to get it but wasn’t there! Finally decided to order it online, it was in my basket and everything was great…. and then it went out of stock. So, I have still not bought it but I am still looking for it every time I go shopping. This would be such a useful skirt to have as you could quickly put it on and match it with almost anything. I’ve noticed Topshop (and practically every other shop) has a similar skirt for only £20, so I may buy from there if New Look never get it back in. I feel it would be my ‘summer skirt’ that I would wear just so much and make so much use out of, but maybe something with come up in the shops in the next few weeks that will become my summer skirt.
I have to admit I didn’t think I’d be writing for so long but I just kept finding more and more online..
I really really really want a cute sundress, so really any white/delicate dress is on my wishlist, not just this particular Topshop one. Basically the same explanation- but it is perfect for summer- perfect for the beach, holidays, town, picnics, and the list is endless.
8) SELECTION OF BOOHOO’S NECKLACES | From top to bottom; £6, £8, £10
Necklaces like these help to make a simple outfit a bit more exciting or change the look slightly, and are all at very reasonable prices. These ones from boohoo caught my eye, especially the Heidi Bird Necklace which creates such a statement. The Lucy Triangle Double Chain Pendant is also very likely to go with every outfit, which is what makes it such a good buy. The Mia Cut Out Tribal Necklace is also ideal for festivals or to finish an outfit off.

I’m writing today about an outfit I absolutely adore! My gorgeous friend, Elouise, was looking very hipstaaaa, wearing patterned leggings, an oversized green jumper, and some Dunlop tennis shoes. I thought it was a lovely outfit and I just had to share it with you all! Patterned Leggings – £25 – Urban Outfitters Oversized Jumper – Vintage Collared Shirt – £20 – New Look Bag – Topshop
I especially liked the collar which was shown from the shirt she was wearing underneath. I have seen similar leggings in Primark for about £6 if your looking for the cheaper option. I love the whole look!
A similar cream blouse can also be found here at H&M £7.

here in cambridge its been snowing heavily. I have to admit that when it first starts i get all excited, but it dies down when i realise how frustrating it is to be so cold and suffer through standing at my bus stop with the cold snowflakes blowing in my face. But when i get out in the snow to play…i LOVE it. Yesterday i had a friend over and we made a sofa out of snow, which i’m super proud of so i’ll be suure to post a pic either on here or my instagram(@cambridgeblogging).
i thought the large gardens near to my house looked absolutely beautiful in the snow, i was almost imagining a winter wedding. i love the snow settling on the branches, and making everywhere look so clean since it’s covered in a white blanket.
