Currently I'm...

This post has been in my drafts for months and I finally decided I would finish and post it. I'm not sure where it came from but I've seen quite a lot of other bloggers do it and I loved reading them. So currently I'm......
The Mortal Instruments Series, specifically City Of Lost Souls. After City Of Fallen Angels, I took a break and read Allegiant and re-read Catching Fire (which I finished a few days ago) and now I am back to COLS. The blurb is really depressing so I am a little hesitant but I'm sure it will be brilliant like the others.
Atlantis, Big Bang Theory re-runs, and a lot of movies on TV. And The Day Of The Doctor, which was brilliant. In terms of new movies, Catching Fire. I'm trying to keep calm here.
Listening To: 
 Bonfire Heart By James Blunt and the usual Night Visions album by Imagine Dragons. Those on repeat. I haven't quite started Christmas music yet but it won't be long!
Tea. More like drowning in it. And the Christmas stuff at Costa.

CATCHING FIRE! Can we just take a minute to appreciate how perfect it is, I cannot contain my excitement any longer. I saw it on Friday and it is just ........ I have no words its so good. What else? I'm loving Tumblr (find me here) and also the colder weather. I've been loving wearing snuggly pyjamas and thick jumpers.

 Christmas build up ;). I am so excited from Christmas and I love all the festive decorations and music and spirit that I am seeing around and It just makes me so happy :)
GSCE everything. I have loads of controlled assessments and coursework which is not fun, but hopefully it will be over soon.

At the moment, my Brandy Melville skirt, a bag top from H&M, Topshop chunky knit cardigan, black tights and slippers. I've been loving wearing skirts recently.
Hope you enjoyed this post. May the odds be ever in your favour :)

Not Cat Out The Bag, Cat On The Skirt.

||  Top - H&M       Skirt - H&M      Tights - New Look  ||
This post was meant to go up a while I go but I didn't get to around to taking the pictures, but better late than never :) This was the outfit I wore on my birthday (party) and I love it so much. The cat skirt has be around the blogger world quite a bit so I saw it and had to have it. Its super comfy and soft and I think it goes pretty well with the baggy top. Ta-dah!
Hope you all had a lovely week

Halloween Adventures

Top and Skirt - Primark   Tights - H&M     Shoes - Clarks (my school shoes)  

I didn't have time to finish my pumpkin so he only has one side of whiskers :( Other than that I was pretty proud of him :)
I decided I was going to make a real effort with my costume this year and as a result I was quite happy with the results so I thought I would share  I dressed up as a kinda of creepy dead broken porcelain doll (or attempted to be) so I wore a black lace skirt and a black velvet-feel crop top and pale tights. For my face, I used a lot of white face paint as a base and then applied loads of mascara and a red lipstick and painted on the odd chip and crack (based on you tube tutorials). I back combed the top of my hair and frizzed it up a bit to make me look a bit creepier. Ta-dah!

I hope you all had a lovely Halloween!
