Looks

OOTD: Leather me up.

Excuse the gormless look on my mug, this is my latest eBay bargain – as far as I’m aware this skirt/similar versions are still being sold at Topshop for £40+ but I bagged mine for £9.50!  Remember the first rule of online shopping: Check eBay first! The vest top I’m wearing was £1 from H&M – YES £1 – WTF RIGHT?!

These leather look skirts are excellent for adding a bit of texture and sass to any boring outfit and can be paired with almost anything, it’s just a case of being creative and resourceful with what you’ve already got. I will be making this little number a staple piece from now on!

The British Tag

Hello people who read my blog, I’m Faith and i’m bored so I’m going to do the British tag as I am in fact British. I was born up north in Blackburn, then have lived in Lincolnshire for about 19 years and am now down south for uni so I like to think of myself as multi-regional which you may see reflected in my stupid answers below…

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day and how many sugars?

Am I the only Brit who doesn’t like tea? I’m a coffee/hot chocolate kinda gal

2. Favourite part of your roast?

YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS

 3. Favourite dunking biscuit?

Bourbons, bourbons – bury me in bourbons.

4. Favourite quintessentially British past time?

Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrm, tutting at queue pushers?

 5. Favourite word?

‘Eggnog’ is the first thing that pops into my head and I can’t think of a more sophisticated answer…

 6. Cockney rhyming slang?

My flat mate literally just taught me a load yesterday, ‘put a smile on yer boatrace love’ (boatrace= face)

 7. Favourite sweet?

Stupidly long jelly snakes rock my world

 8. What would your pub be called?

I’d like it to be Harry Potter themed and called “The Chamber of Swagness”, As long as I wouldn’t get sued by JK Rowling

9. No.1 British person?

There’s so many people I could put here but off the top of my head Jimmy Carr

10. Favourite shop/restaurant? 

Zara and well it’s not strictly speaking a restaurant but Spoons (wetherspoons, specifically The Ivy Wall in Spalding)

 11. What British song pops into your head?

SOME WANT TO KISS, SOME WANT TO KICK YOU – THERE’S NOT A NET YOU COULDN’T SLIP THROUGH…

12. Marmite

As you can see I have now flown the nest from halls and am living in a shared house ( with 9 people – I know crazy right?!). I got the loft room – it’s rather quaint and makes my feel a bit like Harry Potter whilst he’s still living with the Dursleys but in a good way. Anyway thought I share it with you now that I’ve finally unpacked …after 2 weeks.

Looks, Out and About

“Surprise bitch, bet you’d thought you’d seen the last of me”.

HELLO MY LITTLE BLOGGING CHERUBS, I HAVE RETURNED AFTER A REALLY LONG TIME

Sorry for the lapse of posts over the last few months – but fear not, I have many excuses in the form of essays, deadlines, laziness and drunken nights out (but we won’t discuss those). Oh and also I’m now the social media manager for a new up and coming luxury menswear designer Helen Anthony, so I’ve been rather busy with that (I would appreciate it if y’all had a gander/follow and made me look good merci merci)…

I have also been dabbling in the not so wonderful world of modeling, I’ll explain about that more later but I’ll just give you a little taster below

New Year…Not so new me

Image2

 

Above is my friend Steph and I before we ventured out on the town for NYE.

Steph (left), is wearing a mesh H&M dress with shoes from Primani Primark and I’m wearing a dark green play-suit from Missguided, waist belt (that kept falling off) from New Look and shoes which I sort of accidentally bought from Just Fab, for £35.

Now to the point of this post…

I’ve been racking my brain trying to think of a new year’s resolution this year but nothing’s coming to mind. I don’t smoke, I’m not over weight and I don’t shoot heroin into my eye balls so all of the obvious options are fairly futile to me. Then I thought why should I change something about myself just because it’s time to buy a new calendar again? The only thing I could maybe promise for 2014 is to keep my room tidy but I don’t make promises if I have no intention to keep them sooooooo – that’s not gonna happen!

Instead I think I’ll make some goals for myself…

Some more ambitious than others but I’ll take a punt at it at least!

Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy

“Thirty-five is the perfect age for a woman, so much so that many women have decided to adopt it for the rest of their lives”

This year a much loved national treasure returns to our bookshelves in the form of a scatty, clumsy and potty-mouthed Bridget Jones. From author, Helen Fielding’s previous installments you might be expecting another hopelessly brilliant rom-com about Bridget’s longing for Mr Mark Darcy but unfortunately this edition has a darker twist.

Written in the present day, Bridget is now a 50 year old mother of two, struggling with balancing her work and social life as well as the children’s school runs in classic Jones style. Things many of us can certainly identify with, but unfortunately her issues with using Twitter are the least of her problems as she mourns the loss of her beloved husband Mark, who died four years ago in a tragic accident. Many were shocked when it became public knowledge that Fielding had killed off a much loved heart-throb, but I feel it allows Bridget to have a much greater depth than her somewhat ditsy appearance permits.

mark-darcy-bridget-jones

The novel gives Bridget’s personal reflections in diary form as she reluctantly tries to start dating again to move on with life after Mark, whose memory haunts her in every decision she makes. It basically forms the structure for an anti-self-help book on dating as Jones makes every mistake possible in the new-age of modern dating; from drunken texting to online dating- she hopelessly tries it all in her own hilarious way.

After many years of patient waiting Jones’s fans were treated to one final chapter of the domestic chaos and calamity after the films that made her famous, this edition does not disappoint as young Bridget has grown older and wiser with her readers who are now facing their own mid-life crises.  Perhaps not to the same extent as Bridget’s issues with head lice infestations and stomach-bug epidemics but if anything her rather messy life brings a certain degree of reassurance to the rest of us, that just because the living room hasn’t been cleaned for a while and we’ve become slightly more reliant on ready meals recently doesn’t mean that we hopeless/lazy people! It simply means we are busy, successful women with more on our minds than dusting round the plasma screen television.

A laugh-out-loud read you’ll really struggle to put down in a hurry.

ALSO, if you’re really into reading then you should definitely consider having a look at my best friend Hollie’s blog

Faith loves... Reasonclothing.com

Okay, so today I had the pleasure on stumbling across Reason clothing’s website during my procrastination journey through the realms of cyber-space and I LOVE IT. The two things I love most in the world fashion and my cat satire, have been beautifully combined in a range of witty garments. My personal fave being the Prima donna/Prada tee on the left there – if anyone wants to treat me to one please feel free as I’m currently riding the overdraft train!
