This zigzag shirt is my new favorite shirt! Its from a charity shop and so is the tyedye rage against the machine top. The belt is another charity shop find.. I bet the people who read my blog get bored of me saying 'and this is from a charity shop and this is and this is and this and everything I own is from a charity shop' and the creepers are from ebay. I think I'm going to buy some more creepers with my christmas money as they are pretty much all I wear now and only having two pairs gets a bit boring.

I still haven't photographed my DIY'd secret item of footwear, although you probably can already guess what it is if you've been on my twitter.

This morning I woke up and decided, you know what, I think its time to change my blog theme. So I did and I quite like it. If theres anything wrong with it then please let me know!

Here's an outfit which I never posted on here from a few months ago. The shirt is actually a school girls summer dress, it was 50p in a charity shop, no one seemed to want it :-( the shorts are also from a charity shop, they were trousers but I cut the legs off. The creepers are from ebay. Lots of people keep asking which ebay shop I got my starry creepers from. I didn't get them from a shop, an they were an individual listing, sorry!

I've also spent a few hours doing something else constructive today but that's a secret and I'll post about it tomorrow!

The spotty top and shirt is from a charity shop along with the cardigan, the necklaces are from a car boot sale, my grandma gave me the heart necklace, tights are from primark and shoes and socks are off ebay. I'm not sure where the skirt is from but i cut the bottom of the skirt off a few years ago.. Oh and I dyed my hair pink lol its bright.

I promised on lookbook that I would most at least once a day, in the last four days I have posted... once. Ok so I've been tidying my room and I saw my boyfriend but today is outfit day.. or making day. I'm not sure, but I'm going to do something constructive. I hope. Anyway, this was what I wore a few days ago, skirt is from tammy, shirt is from a charity shop as is the waistcoat. Tights are from the rag market and I think the socks are from primark and the shoes are from ebay! I love these shoes I've wanted some for ages and now I finally have them yay! You can only really walk on flat surfaces with them on though :/

Today was the end of my first term at uni and now I am free to do whatever I want for a month, so I decided to go charity shopping. Having not been since September I was having serious withdrawal symptoms. This is what I bought! Together it all came to a grand total of £9!

I'm going to start collecting old glasses! I can never find ones that I like when I go to the opticians, but I figured if I have a giant collection at home then I can just choose one and waltz into specsavers and get them to change the lenses. Its only about £30 to have new lenses put into old glasses.. which is cheaper than buying the ones in store. These glasses were only £1 :-D

Everything apart from my Creepers, tights and socks is from a charity shop. My creepers are from ebay and my socks and tights are from primark. Sorry I haven't updated recently, I started uni and well.. I don't really have time anymore, my boyfriend took these photos about three weeks ago and I've only just kinda got chance to upload them so sorry for the lack of updates :-(

I've moved my blog around a bit and removed the header, I'm trying to think of something to put in its place but at the same time I kind of like it without anyway. I probably wont be blogging as much as normal for a little while as I've just started Uni and everything feels really busy. In this outfit I'm wearing a green vintage shirt from Cow Vintage, another shirt over the top which is from a charity shop and an alice band from Primark. I made the skirt myself and the tights are from Primark. Both the Creepers and Socks are from ebay. Soon I hope to invest in some more platform shoes because I've developed a great love for them! Also, I finished work on Saturday so now I can actually dye my hair permanently... well ok, not permanently, but it will last a month or two! Goodbye spray in hair colour!

Also I just thought I'd add that I have remade my Confessions of a Fashion Whore blog, with the intent of actually starting to blog there again. So if you were following me on there before would you be so kind as to follow me again? Thank you!

I have new glasses, actually I've had them for a week today! I can finally see properly, everything is really clear. When I put them on I was like 'oh so this is what the world looks like.' My shirt is from a charity shop, i cut the neckline and arms off. The shirt with the huge collar is from a charity shop and I made the frilly lace shorts myself. Tights are from The Rag Market as usual and my socks are off ebay, along with my dr martens!

Earlier I was accepting my friends requests on facebook when it said that I had reached 5000 and couldn't accept anymore, so I've decided to make a page. At least this way I wont have to accept 100+ friends everytime I go on there :-) All my updates will be posted on this new facebook page from now on.

I couldn't decide what colour to have my fringe today so I started off with having it yellow and then I didn't like that so I put some blue on it and I thought that looked better.. Then I thought I haven't had black hair for ages so I'll have some black and pink at the back and urgh I love it maybe at the end of September I will permanently dye it like this.

I have acquired a Lamb Of God top!! I think the strange screech I let out when I was in the charity shop may have shocked all the people in there but I kind of ran over to it like FINALLY I HAVE FOUND YOU THE LIGHT OF MY LIFE! Then the shop lady told me it was half price so I got it for the grand price of £1.75 which I was rather happy about. I also bought the flannel shirt on the same day, it was 99p. I bought the tights the day before and they were 50p which I thought were a bargain until I realized the motif was rubbing off, but hey what can you expect for 50p? The socks are from Primark and my shoes are again from a charity shop. I'm getting new glasses tomorrow I can't wait, everything will be clear again!

I've got plenty more outfit photos left to post. Recently I've been taking them all in one go, you may have noticed. Its because I can never be bothered to do it when I get home, so instead I leave it until I have a free day and then I put all the outfits I've worn that week back on and take photos.

I'm about to have a look at all the blogs that posted in my 'I'll check our your blog' post.


Saturday, September 3, 2011

I know, I am a very strange being. Posing like a normal person is something I can no longer do.

I have missed my jumpers, summer is pretty much over here so I can wear them all again! The shirt I'm wearing is from a charity shop, although you can only see the collar. My jumper is from a car boot sale, I made the skirt myself, the tights are from the Birmingham Rag Market and my creepers are from ebay. I'm not sure about the socks, pretty sure I've had them since I was little..

Also, if you want me to have a look at your blog then leave a comment in my previous post!


Hi guys! I've been spending more time on here over the last few days instead of devoting all my time to tumblr so I thought it would be nice if I could find lots of new blogs to follow. If you want me to check our yours then leave a comment here and I will take a look :-)!

I'm going to do another update in a matter of seconds aha...


Friday, September 2, 2011

I'm not sure whether I should make all my outfit posts now or graduate them as I have a few I haven't posted... Maybe later on tonight I'll post another one! Here I am wearing a Jumper from Cow Vintage, a dress/ long shirt from a charity shop and socks which I've had since I was 13 and my beloved creepers! Also I've been doing some great poses recently I might make a post full of them, they are very serious looking.......

We are drained of our colours

I don't know why I don't wear this shirt more often, its probably one of my favourites! I know I've posted it before but I just wanted everyone to bask in its beaming rays of fabulousness. I bought it from the Birmingham Vintage Fair on my birthday. As you can see I've also acquired some more creepers, I really do adore them. I saw them on ebay a few nights before the bidding ended and they were only £20, going by usual creeper price that's a bargain! So obviously, I waited until the last 30 seconds and placed my bid even though there wasn't anyone to bid against (I really can't understand why) and then I won them and happiness ensued. Does anyone else find bidding on things on ebay makes them really nervous? They have a little coffin hole inside to hide things in! I bought the necklaces from a carboot sale when I was in wales.

I've been spending a lot of time on tumblr recently, and also watching beyblade which I haven't seen since I was a little girl but now I am obsessed yet again. I've changed my tumblr url to

Also, WHERE IS MY POTTERMORE EMAIL WAHHH?! Am I not worthy :'( I'm also doing a lot of Harry Potter blogging on and also some rping on the actual HR Forum

They're gonna want to keep them in a jar

I've always wanted a pair of tights like these ever since I first saw them on tumblr, but I've never been able to find them/ they're too expensive. Instead I decided I'd make them myself, seeing as the tights themselves were only about 10p a pair I drew on them with permanent marker and I love them! Despite the fact that you can kinda tell they are drawn on haha. I went shopping with my friend Jo the other day, she bought loads and I bought my fabulous new cardigan, I love it, its so warm and fluffy and the colour is lovely I think. My docs are from ebay and also I've changed the laces in them to the ones which I bought at oasis market in birmingham. My no riders top was from a car boot sale and I cut the arms off and the neck out.

I hope everyone is safe and keeping away from the riots, people are mad! I hope its over soon!

As some of you may or may not know, I love Harry Potter and have done since I was about six years old. I still read the books religiously and also look after my almost six year old Harry Potter RPG forum, Hogwarts Realm. Once upon a time it was one of the most active Harry Potter RPGs on the net but unfortunately a few years back I got a life and everything went down hill, so I was hoping to try and get it back on track again! If anyone can lend a helping hand by maybe posting a link or an advertisement banner, or even just mentioning it to some Harry Potter loving friends I'd be so happy! I may even give those that help a little promotion here on my blog as a thank you!

If you're interested in joining then here's some information about the plot and some useful links! I've also written a how-to manual here on my tumblr and also theres another one on HR here.

Hogwarts Realm
Its the year 2027, Harry Potter and his friends are all in their forties. Professor Dumbledore passed away at the ripe age of 176 and now Lavender Finnegan has been appointed Headmistress of Hogwarts for her loving and caring ways, which may be needed in the times to come
A strange concoction, said to subdue Manticores and other dangerous magical creatures was being created for use in court rooms for the Department of Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, however, something went wrong. The wizards and witches who created to potion breathed in fumes from the potion and unbelievably lost their magic. This would be an ok thing to get over in the Wizarding World if it was only those few potioners, but now the malady is spreading, to what is supposedly the entire magical world. Some are immune but many aren't and those that aren't are losing their magic left right and center. The Ministry is doing what it can but nothing seems to be working, how will we find the cure?!
What will happen to the witches and wizards of the world now they are infected with The Curse of the Squib?

hogwarts realm is a 5 year old traditional harry potter roleplay with 200,000+ posts!

we're trying to keep the old type of hogwarts roleplay alive.
canon and original characters are welcome and we have other hidden boards available to registered members including the ministry and hogwarts village!
im new ! what do i do to start off ?!

Thank you to anyone who helps make HR more active again! <3

Also, I thought I'd let you all know I've been taking some photos for ebay today! Not that I've uploaded anything yet but I should be doing so soon!

I think I should make my fringe permanent?

Thursday, July 28, 2011

The top photo is me with my natural hair and no makeup, oh dear. I thought you might like to see my morning transformation haha. I don't really like my hair in the first photo but I also don't know if I should cut a fringe in. At the moment I'm just clipping it under, and I really like the way it looks, but I'm scared that if I cut it, it wont look the same, but I hate having to spend so much time trying to get my fringe right.. and then sometimes it falls out during the day, but then some days I feel like having a middle parting, even though I don't think it suits me. Oh the confusion. Also, I bleached my roots the other day with live xxl, I'm going for a more all over striking colour rather than highlights, I love it, my mom wasn't too happy though :'(


Sunday, July 24, 2011

They have arrived! I am so happy I adore them! I'm currently in wales, the land of amazing charity shops, but I'm going home soon, I've been here all week! I'll do an update tomorrow or Tuesday of all the stuff I've acquired! In these photos I'm wearing a blouse which is from a charity shop, the shorts I've had since I was 10, originally they were light blue skinny jeans but then I dyed them black when I was about 13, and then when I was 15 I cut them into shorts, they were from Tammy originally. My tights are from the birmingham rag market, I now have two pairs of these! I've also dyed the roots of my hair blonde, its a bit yellow but nothing a bit of toning shampoo can't fix! I think it went ok considering it was my first time bleaching my hair.. despite the fact that the underneath of my hair is still partly brown, really I want an all over colour but I know thats difficult to achieve since I have highlights so I'm just going to leave it and keep touching up my roots every few months

I'm sorry I haven't posted anything for so long, I just didn't feel like it, but I've been on my tumblr lots. I'm trying to figure out a way to merge the two, well, not merge, but have them running side by side on one page, I think it would motivate me to update this blog more often.


Friday, July 8, 2011

I have finally purchased some creepers! I didn't want to get normal black ones so I thought I'd go all out and buy the weirdest ones I could find that weren't too much money, so I got these, they have a 3" sole! Finally I will be tall, I can't wait for them to arrive.


Wednesday, July 6, 2011

I bought a new blouse today, it had a giant collar, I saw it in the window in Oxfam and just had to get it, despite the fact that it was £4 which to me is a lot haha. I got the shorts from a charity shop in Plymoth in Devon last week, originally they were long baggy flared trousers but I cut off the legs. The brooch was another one which my grandma gave me and I've had that cardigan since I was about 15, I think its from Primark. My hair is what I would like to call the Twiggy Ramirez hair style. I love Twiggy he is fabulous.

I'm quite bored, so ask me some things on formspring?
