A May Life Update

An Update For May Hey everyone! I’m here with my May update! So I will jump straight into it. I watched Avengers Endgame, but don’t worry, no spoilers! I think it was fantastic and I really enjoyed it, so I recommend it if you’re a Marvel fan, but of course, if you are, you’ve probably seen it! I’ve been watching a few things on Netflix, so I recommend ‘Dead To Me’ as that was great! I’ve also been watching ‘Schooled’ which is hilarious as I am a Goldbergs fan! A song I have currently been obsessed with is Shawn Mendes’ new song called ‘If I Can’t Have You’ and it’s amazing! You can watch it on YouTube by clicking here. I’m a huge Shawn fan as you all know! And of course, if you missed it, I got my first tattoo as well a couple of weeks ago! I also collaborated with Long Tall Sally to do a blog post on the evolution of denim since the 1950’s, which I think some of you might love, so definitely check that out! My room is almost finished too, I just have a few little things left to do and then I can share! I’ve been reorganising other rooms at the same time and really getting into the Spring cleaning mode! While I’m talking about Spring cleaning, I’ve actually changed a lot mentally over the last couple of months, again. Growing is a constant part of life and evolving has been something I’ve worked on a lot. I used to have a huge fear of change, I wasn’t very good at parting…

Crystal Necklaces From Aura By Calum

My Crystal Necklaces from Aura by Calum If you have followed me for a while, you will know that I have a love for crystals. I always have, ever since I was little, and anywhere we went on a day trip, if there was a gift shop, I’d go straight to the crystal section. As I’ve gotten older, my love for them has only grown and instead of just going by how pretty they look, I’ve researched more into their properties as well. When I go on holiday to St. Ives, there’s a little crystal shop there and I go in it every day, it’s so comforting! There’s always something new to add to my collection, and last time I picked up real meteorite. Since I also love jewellery, and I used to carry my crystals around with me (the flat ones fit well inside your bra!) I thought about getting some jewellery with my favourite crystals on, and that’s when I came across Aura by Calum online. I originally found the exclusive pieces on ASOS and ordered a few of the Fluorite pendants (see here) because the stones are so unique, I wanted to be able to get one that I really loved and connected with. I ended up keeping two actually, so the two Fluorite gold pendants you see below, those are the ones I purchased. I reached out to Aura by Calum online to find out more about the brand after falling in love with it, which was when I realised it was started by Calum Best. If you’re in the UK, you will know him as…

I Got My First Tattoo

I Got My First Tattoo! As you know, it’s been a topic of discussion in my blog posts for quite some time (remember my inspiration post?). It’s actually been almost a year, and I finally did it! I got my first tattoo! So this blog post will be dedicated to the process, who I went to, with photos of having it done, and talking about it, as well as ideas for future tattoos! I’ve been excited to write this blog post for months actually, and more excited about having it done, and now the time is finally here for me to share it with you all! I wont lie, with my high anxiety levels, I was extremely nervous and scared leading up to it, and close to having a panic attack an hour or so before, but I pushed through it and I felt extremely comfortable as soon as I was in the chair. So, lets get to it! Check my Instagram highlight by clicking here to watch videos of me having it done! Who was the tattoo artist? I did a lot of research online for tattoo artists that were experienced with my Ehlers Danlos Sysndrome type skin, but more importantly, I wanted someone who was extremely talented at space/galaxy style tattoos. After a lot of research last year, I came across Joe Phillips (Space Bangers) on Instagram (check his Instagram portfolio here) and immediately fell in love with his work. When I messaged him for the first time in the summer, he had already had a client with EDS too, so knew about it and had experience in…

An April Life Update

This month has been eventful so far! It’s taken me a while to put everything together and decide what I wanted to include, but I especially wanted to talk about this week just gone as it was so busy! I spent a few days in Birmingham, which I will talk about in the individual sections, but I attended the Shawn Mendes concert that I had been waiting for for a year, I visited Sea Life, explored some of Birmingham, I’ve been to Wales a bit before that etc. Things I recently watched are: the movie Focus (really good), and The Durrells is back on the TV for its final season! I absolutely love it! Also just completed Fleabag which is interesting. I watched a movie called Duck Butter and hated it, so I don’t recommend that. I’m listening to a band called Cigarettes After Sex as they have some really good music, so I recommend them for mellow tunes. Niall Horan’s new song with Julia Michaels called What A Time is beautiful, it’s on repeat! I think that’s about it at the moment for that. So on Tuesday 9th April 2019, I went to the Shawn Mendes The Tour concert at Arena Birmingham and it was one of the best nights of my life! Literally, SO AMAZING! I’ve been a Shawn fan for over 3 years and his music is my favourite, plus of course he’s extremely handsome, not gonna lie! I can’t wait to try and book tickets for the next tour. You can watch my highlight on my stories on Instagram for clips of the songs and me…

A March Life Update

Hi everyone! It’s been a little while since I did a life update as I skipped February entirely due to not much going on and not much to report, so I thought I would fill out March a bit more instead. I’m super annoyed at Instagram at the moment because my account seems to have a glitch on it meaning I can’t post any new photos at all, which has annoyed me. I’ve not been able to post since Thursday and they said they’re looking into it, but so far no luck! I’m also heading to Wales in a few days time to go for my tattoo consultation, which I can’t wait for! It should be in late April that I end up getting the tattoo, and I finally know what I’m having! The tattoo you can see on my collarbone is just a temporary one from Paperself, but I will be getting a collarbone one at some point, depending on how painful my wrist one is and if I can handle it, ha ha. Regarding things I’ve watched recently, I definitely recommend After Life and The Order on Netflix. Both of those shows have been really good! I just finished the first season of Working Mom’s as well with my mum, and we liked that. Sex Education was something I enjoyed too, great series and set in Wales which was stunning! So those are 4 things to look up on Netflix. If anyone has any other suggestions for me to watch, I would love to hear! A few things that I have purchased, but haven’t taken photos of so…

A January Life Update

Wow, January has been eventful so far! I’ve got so much to share with you this time around, and it’s all pretty exciting, so I wont waste too much time on an intro and will jump straight into it! This month the music I am loving is ‘Lissie – Go Your Own Way‘ as I think that’s an amazing cover! Her voice is so raw and talented, I also love ‘The Midnight – Vampires‘ as I love a good saxophone! TV wise, Adam and I found an old show called ‘Last Man Standing’ with Tim Allen in it, which we are absolutely loving! Movie wise, I haven’t seen any this month, so I can’t comment, neither have I read any books, so nothing to report on that front, so lets get to the events and things I have been up to, as well as new purchases which I know you all love! I’m still very much into belts at the moment and I picked up this western inspired one from ASOS for a bargain price! Can you believe it’s only £16 and it’s amazing. Huge fan of wearing it at the moment! I didn’t yet own any belt with a silver buckle, so this is great. Click here to buy it. Huge recommendation for this one! A few other new pieces from Revolve here. I’m wearing the Lovers + Friends Ever Bodysuit in Gunmetal (buy it here), but it’s more like a gold, and I have the GRLFRND Karolina High Rise Skinny in Last Dance as well (buy them here). I’ve really been feeling vintage washes lately and even though…

Some Current Inspirations, Changes & New Things

Happy Christmas Everyone! Happy Christmas Eve everyone! I know I’ve said it a lot, but I can’t believe how fast the time has gone towards the end of this year, Christmas has really crept up on me and because I’ve been so busy, I’ve not really gotten into the Christmas spirit just yet. I’m hoping that will change tomorrow though on Christmas day! How are you all feeling about it? For this blog post, I had planned on doing a roundup of my week with the festive celebrations, but I never ended up doing anything like that as I had other things to do instead, so I’ve made this blog post into a round-up of the current things I am doing. I know I already did a December life update, but this is different as it’s including changes that are coming for 2019 as well as some other updates that I missed out on the last one because they hadn’t happened yet. So, I will get to it! The shot above is of my new Senreve Belt Bag that I got in Burgundy from Shopbop a couple of weeks ago. It’s SO cute! I love that you can wear it numerous ways. I was choosing between the burgundy and the brown (you might have seen on Instagram with the poll) and went for this option as I have a lot of brown bags as it is. I have an outfit of this look to share with you soon. If you like it, you can click here to shop it. This isn’t me, obviously, but it’s a girl I have been…

The Magic Of Christmas – Is It Lost?

Christmas is literally just a week away and I was chatting to one of my best friends, Kieran, about how commercial it has become. He said he had heard an advert for a well known electrical store which mentioned buying loved ones an expensive iPad or Macbook for Christmas and paying on finance. This shocked us both actually that to impress someone close to you, you need to be in debt for a year or so to make that happen. I feel like that had truly lost the magic of Christmas and what it is supposed to be about. It’s never been about materialistic goods only, it’s meant to be a time of happiness, joy, spreading love and spending time with family, not who can buy the most expensive or extravagant gift (that’s fine if you can comfortably afford to, but if it’s beyond your means like they were making out, it’s unnecessary). I was also at my Buddhist group last week and we had a special get together, did some meditations centered around this time of year, and it dawned on me how busy everyone gets, how hectic life becomes, and how stressful it can also be when you get consumed with the materialistic side of Christmas. We were reflecting back on that and when I think about it, all I see if I go to town is a huge stream of people all rushing around to buy what they need, squashed like sardines at the market, and not many of them look very happy, which is sad since Christmas is supposed to be the most wonderful time of…
