rant & inspirations

woke up late again today.. i wake up and i instantly think 'where has the day gone D:'  my body clock for school next week will be terrible..

You know somedays you just need a good rant... well today is one of those days! 
Why is it as soon as something good happens there is always someone ho has to get involved or ruin it. maybe i am just being paranoid or thinking on things too much but something is going on and i dont like it!! i know many of you will be thinking 'Omg amie just grow up and stop complaining and stop thinking about things' well i am sorry i just think about things too much and those thoughts escalate into something bigger. i care too much .. waahh  
sorry, rant over...

So I start school next Wednesday *cheer* so if you have any ideas on what you want me to blog about during school time or perhaps when you would like me to blog; drop a comment :)

today's blog is a little short and strange as i am all over the place at the mo due to my lack of brain activity and overthinking things at home! i feel this is the place i can let go.. *too much emotion*





once again i don't own any of these images ... thanks tumblr...

sorry today has been rather odd.. in an odd mood.. (again!)

i like mushrooms now... weird cause i used to HATE them with a passion but they are really yummy.. i just need to work on liking eggs.. i doubt it will happen but hey! it could... (no)

So yesterday, me and a friend attempted to bleach the ends of my hair, and it went well yay! it didn't quite go too light but it lightened it up a little bit, so i am winning here woop! things are looking up.. 

however; i have learnt a valuable lesson in the past week.. Just because it's a pound doesnt mean you have to buy it! so, One needs to controll ones purchases.
there we go, Life fact for you! 

Unlike my other blogs were i write them on the day/morning i am doing this in preparation for what is going to be Today (confusion D: ) because, i am going to Sunderland open day WOOOP since i have got the results i wanted i thought i should go to some open days! so please comment if you were there today or thinking about going!! 
However, i don't know what to wear so this should be fun... 

So like i do everyday i have been doing my nails and i got some new Topshop ones. Sliver Crush and a lilac sparkle number.. not sure on the name as i peeled the label off.. oops..

my hand looks deformed...

i need to prepare for leeds - even though i arent going till friday, i feel i need to be more organised D: however I am realllllyyy excited! I think its going to be a good weekend (y) 

Point: i have an Unhealthy addiction to Drake and AlunaGeorge.. its really bad D: save me!

going to leave you with a new band (to me!) which i am in LOVE with. They are an Indie band called 'Walk The Moon' from Ohio formed in 2008.
their previous EP - 'Anna Sun' is amazing, it has been my summer holiday soundtrack. In 2010 they released their album 'I want, I want' again its amazing and i think i like every song!

This Year they are releasing their new album 'Walk The Moon' which i don't think is avaliable in the UK yet.. (dont kill me if i am wrong!) 
Have a listen to 'Anna Sun' & 'Shiver' my two faves :)

obsessive.. i think so...

what a strange week i am having it seems to be going too fast.. and it feels like i am still on saturday D: body clock is really bad.. oops! 

Fashion Wise: this week i am being really casual because i aren't really doing much, just chilling at home and lounging with the boyf before he goes away on holiday... which means.. movie day woop! i love those! anyway... inspirations this week not only images but Teen Tatler a really good magazine and i think it really fits with teen life (surprisingly!) but i was really impressed.. Thumbs Up!

so my obsessions... 
1. Oreo's.. omg they are incredbile and i think i eat a mini packet everyday, not good for me but YOLO (did i just say that.. kill me now!)
2. Billy Elliot, my friend had it on DVD and we decided to watch it.. i loved it so much i bought it and watch it nearly every day! i think its so amazing and ooop the music is so groovy (cringe)
3. Leggings, the most comfy thing ever but i have so many pairs wether they are black, stripey, wool.. i have them and wear them loads.. 
4. A band called One Direction.. *sigh* i can see many eyes rolling.. but i think they are catchy and harry.. OOFT (i felt you guys needed to know about this)
5. Mascara.. infact any beauty product.. i have so much beauty products i could run a pharmacy i love them though.. i like the choice of what i can look like etc.. i am such a girl!
6. my new Henna Tattoo which i got to see if i liked the design before i get a real one.. its a swollow which many will think 'Oh my god common much!' well i like it so HMPH

7. painting my nails, i have recently been redoing my colours every other day! its so bad, but hey its cool... right?
8. Youtube.. this is so unhealthy i can sit for hours and watch videos and chill.. my life is a sham. SHAM!

Quick point: those who got their results hope you all did well! And if you do GCSE's good luck for thursday (y)
sorry for not blogging regularly.. this is bad i have been so busy but i shall do more! 





(Again i dont own any of these images i found them all on the wonderful Tumblr!)

Jumper: Jack Wills in Grey (old)
Leggings: Primark
Socks: Jack Wills 
This is what i wore today nothing really special haha! as recently i have just been chilling at home.. lazy i know.. but when the olympics are on one must support their country and watch! its all for a good cause.. i hope! (excuse the sock Picture, i was standing where my lamp was for good light and my folder was there...)

The Olympics as you all know has been all i have been going on about for the past week and a bit, i think you are all sick of hearing it! but now it has ended it has inspired me a little.. As when i was younger until i was 15 i did lots of dancing untill i hurt my knee which made me stop as i couldnt dance the moves anymore. Now i am starting up again with my aunties friend who teaches ballet, she is giving me lessons on my own without being around 3 year olds :P so al very exciting in the exercise world hahahaa!
Like i said the Olympics has ended i feel i should say, i shed a fair few tears! i miss it already! i want some good tv hahaa!

this picture gets me everytime... 
the 2nd girl in the queue reminds me of myself.. as she is 
pulling a face at the good one in front... :')

rant: i went shopping with my mum yesterday and i think it was much needed :') however, i went to the perfume section of Debenhams to see if i could get some testers (simple i know!) and the lady lead me to the big bottles of perfume and looked at me like i was silly.. so i said 'no i mean the little testers you can take home..?' to which she responded 'but you can't take these bottles home..' and this convo went round in circles with her responding only with 'but you cant take these bottles home' *sigh* i had to walk away... before i said something.. but the point of the rant is, you think that the woman would know what i meant! i get little testers all the time.. am i the only one? 

My next blog should be a little more less random :) see you then

Having a really weird day today, don't really know what to write about.. which is kind of strange for me since i always have something to say. However, i am watching the olympics hoping for some inspiration! 
Something to comment on, if you follow me on Twitter you will have read my tweet about Glitter hair spray! omg i loved that when i was younger, and i sprayed everything with it.. and as i was watching the Gymnastics i saw they had glitter in their hair.. it just took me back! 
here is the bottle i used to own: 
good ole Claire's!!
Reminiscing over.. For my hair i am so glad to have bought a hair doughnut, i think i must be wearing my hair in a top messy bun all the time. I think it looks good with everything and you can wear it on a lazy day at home (like today!) or wear it when your going out! so i am happy.
what else... ooo beginning to get addicted to Ebay also, I have found some great vintage designer items (t-shirts/jackets etc) on there, I feel I should invest!
In addition, i have some glitter nail varnish from Nails Inc. and O.P.I if anyone knows a good way of removing it without waiting for it to chip.. please let me know via a comment or message me! Thankss!!!

So, i was talking to my mum about blogging and she didnt really get what i was doing so she read it.. and yeah she still didnt understand but she said i need to talk more about what things inspire me or what pictures inspire me! so with this links Tumblr. i am affraid to say my dears that yes i am addicted to it.. badly.. i think i was on it till 1am (this is unhealthy) but hey ho! 

Images that have inspired me:


so after that immense effort in trying to get all these images fit, this is what has inspired me for the following week, and i just love these pictures! (i don't own any of these pictures these were all found on the Fashion section on good old tumblr!) With this links.. I HAVE FOUND MY CAMERA!!  i was worried for a whole day yesterday but phew! i have found it and it is charging, so there should be soon some outfit of the day, nails, and hair things coming up soon! WOOO

a bit of a jumbled up mess today really! i hope you all have a lovely day!

Spring/Summer round up/news on band & Autum/Winter

So summer is ending... this is probably the saddest thought ever! because it hasn't felt like summer at all, with all the silly rain -.- it makes me sad thinking how much rain we have had! however looking back its been good.. why?
1. i met harry and we are together now which i think is a good thing, as i have managed to get him to dress much better which i think is an accomplishment in itself!
2. I have a huge collection of shorts i feel i should show you guys the amount of shorts i own.. but i feel you would all be shocked!
3. I have some how managed to get back into fake tanning even though i told my friends i wouldnt after all the mistakes of the past 3 years!! (my life is a sham) but hey ho! i am actually good at it now...
4. I have re kindled my love for blogging again after i stopped due to silly AS levels.. but now i am dedicated woop!
5. My Makeup collection is growing rapidly and i think if i carry on i wont be able to walk into my shower (due to the high amount of shampoo) and look out of my window in my bathroom (as thats where all my makeup/creams/facial wash lives...) *sigh*
6. i have agreed with all my family/friends that yes i am addicted to both clothes and makeup and how could i forget.. shopping! it is something i am both disappointed in but also glad as i can safely say i have a wonderful joy in it and i arent addicted to drugs so meh! 

Band News: *nerd alert* Thats right we have new uniforms. This is fashion based so i feel compelled to share with you the fact that yes. we have some brand new Fleeces/Waterproofs (they turn inside out..wild i know!) knew jackets & new skirts.. may i add these are the comfiest skirts EVER.

on some random notes: i love Macarons.. oh my lord they are so yummy! i think i am too addicted going to make Harry bake me some, luckily he is amazing at baking.. i am one lucky girl! 
also, WOW to Mr. Bolt.. i have a serious crush on that guy.. it's unhealthy i love that signature pose of his, one day i shall master it!
can i also add, i have managed to fit in my old size 10 jeans. this my dears is an AMAZING achievement not only do feel great that i an fit in them my mum is also shocked *haha* 

hmmm, i love him... sad really...
oh my. this is making me hungry D:

so what am i wearing today? this is hard to explain since i have lost my camera charger... oops... So i am wearing my leggings from Topshop which have a leather look pannel running down the side of the legs. A Grey baggy long sleve top from Miss Selfridge and also my beloved baggy denim shirt from ark... i hope you can paint a very vague picture of what i am wearing, however i am now going to try and find both camera and charger.. 

i also have a new addition to my shoe family YAY! another pair of flossy's i have a navy pair, now i have a maroon pair they are so comfy i live in those babies! May i also add they are great driving shoes.. ;)
managed to snap these with my phone.. Beauties
Jeans: Topshop

Whats in store for Autum/Winter? 
1. i turn 18.. YAY not really fashion based but i think its a pretty big mile stone in my life
2. i get to buy some more coats, i love a good coat! especially Zara ones, i have a lovely one from their and my god its amazing! when it hits the time, i shall post a picture up!
3. Fashion Week in London arrives, sadly i cant get down at the time it is on, but i shall be following intently and comment on the pictures that i see
4. Christmas.. My favourite time of year! i think it is so pretty and i can get some more festive Jumpers, wow i love those! also its time for the big knits the best thing in the world christmas playing with band. this doesnt count.. *nerd alert*
5. time to buy some winter shoes, i dont really own any and i never have! i am going to change this and i am going to purchase some! 
since autum/winter is not a while yet i shall leave this at a healthy 5 points, i shall add more!

a tad long today, sorry guys! but there was a lot to share with you all!

fake tan/Olympics/skirts...

Bought some more fake tan, for the friends who read this.... i am sorry! for those who dont know me that well, i am going to let you into a secret.. i cant fake tan to save my life D: However, i have progressed and my tan actually looks really good (if i do say so myself!) and to apply i used a kitchen sponge. The ones with the scrubber at the top and the spongey bit at the bottom.. well yeah! it works a treat!
the tan i use is : Garnier summer body moisturising lotion :) definitely the best lotion i have used!
as an instant tan: St Moritz instant tanning lotion (i use the sponge for this!) what i found with this one is, if i apply it at the night time sleep with it on and have a shower in the morning to remove the top layer and it looks much more natural :)

is it just me or do you feel much more proud to be English now the Olympics are in London? i am so obsessed it is on my Tv all the time! i also have the Apps to tell me things! But... harry told me yesterday that Katherine Copeland (the rower) is his older sisters friend and was in his rowing club.. so this has just made me more excited :D i think its great that she won gold however i feel yarm will be riddled with piccys of her.. But good for her!

on a more fashion based front, i arent really a skirt person but recently i am wearing skirts loads more! a few people have said its strange to see me not in shorts but hey! i fancied a change and i think i like skirts more now.. we shall see where this goes later on next week! another thing i think i need to start doing my portrait of the week thing again - feel that i should start it :/ or maybe talk more about my clothes...
but i am recently wearing my checked shirt from topshop, i shall post a blog about it tomorrow i may even post up some other favourite clothes of mine..oh the ideas!!

Musically - have a listen to an old favourite band of mine Life In Film - Carla and also Josh Osho - Giants. These are such good songs i listen to them all the time! along with my Lianne La Havas addiction and obvs Ben Howard.
