January Inspiration

After neglecting it for a while, Tumblr has been my go-to app recently. It's an amazing source of inspiration- so here is a round-up of what's been on my Tumblr page recently. If you saw my last post on here then you might know that monochrome has been on my mind lately, and its definitely spilled over onto Tumblr. 

As usual, I've been pretty busy occupying myself with school, homework, and waiting for the weekend. Thank goodness it's nearly here! I can tell that the next few months are going to be one huge, manic blur, so it's probably wise for me to warn you that 

1) This little corner of the internet will be my outlet, and 
2) this sucks, but I can't guarantee two or three posts a week. However, a new post will be here every Monday morning, hopefully with little extras throughout the week too. 

All this late night blogging is doing me no good though, and my bed is calling. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Twirly, Swirly

I honestly don't quite know why I do it to myself, but earlier this week I decided it would be a good idea to go and stand outside in a short sleeved dress. It's all for you guys, I blame you, okay? So anyway, here's me wearing my new favourite thing. A pretty, twirly, swirly dress. The past few months have seen me really get into the whole monochrome thing, and I feel like this outfit embraces it whole-heartedly. In between (unfortunately sporadic) blogging sessions I've been bombarded with homework, but I have some fun things coming up soon!

I'm always interested to see what you would like to read on here, or alternatively, which blogs you can't get enough of. Leave me links down in the comments-I'll check them out whenever I get a free second. 

I hope you all read Maria's blog but if you don't, let me point you to her corner of the web. She recently wrote an amazing post which I would love you to share with any guys and girls you think should read it. I think it's might be quite a strange, unexpected thing for a fashion blogger to be like 'hey, I don't actually always like having my picture taken.' I totally know how this feels- some days my appearance knocks me down, and other times it won't cross my mind for days. I think that's pretty normal, until you throw in the fact that I regularly post pictures of myself on a blog for everyone to see. I could really relate to Maria's blog post and although I don't think it's something that I've ever talked about on here before, I love that she had the courage to write that post and click publish.

Just a few little things to listen to! This month is already all about Maroon 5, so I recommend immersing yourself in all of their music, and Adam Levine's beautiful face. I saw them live earlier this week and trust me, his face is even more beautiful in person.

NOTD: Luxedo

Last week I visited the shops for a bit of a search through the sales, and only bought one thing that was actually in the sales. This Essie polish isn't it, but that doesn't matter because it's so pretty that I couldn't resist. Luxedo is a polish that I've heard lots of people rave about, and it's just as pretty in person. It's reminiscent of Chanel's Vendetta, (remember how much I went on about that one?) minus the little bit of shimmer it has. 

With two coats it comes out much more black than I thought it would, but when it catches the light it's a gorgeous plum colour. The two coats lasted about 3 or 4 days before I saw a chip. Pretty good to say that I couldn't be bothered with a top coat. The formula is lovely, and the brush is that perfect size- just big enough to cover the nail in two oh-so-easy swipes. 

Have you ever tried an Essie polish? (If not, why not?)

Oh Deer...

Oh dear, the holiday break is coming to an end. *Curls up in a corner and pushes homework away* I wish I could do this, but I do have some work which probably needs doing. I hope you've all recovered from the shock of a new year, though! 

I haven't even begun to think about resolutions, I guess I should drink more water, so let's put that on the list. Other than that, probably just the usual, give more compliments to people, and lose a few pounds. Nothing imaginative! 

What about you? Any resolutions this year?
