Outfit Of The Day feat. Peace Belt




Jumper- H&M
Shorts- American Apparel
Belt- Urban Outfitters

Just a very quick OOTD for you. The jumper is a excellent little piece for when it's changeable weather- hot and sunny one minutre and then overcast the next. The jumper and belt are both recent buys.
I also included a quick snap of my hair. I had a trim and it's gone into super curly mood. Absolutely mad :)
Un OOTD muy rapido! El jersey es algo excellente para los dias cuando el tiempo siempre cambia- hace sol y calor un minuto y está nublado el otro. El jersey y el cinturón son cosas que he comprado últimamente,
Tambien, un foto de mi pelo. Lo he cortado y ahora es super rizado! Es loco!


I'm off back to uni at the weekend to move our stuff into the house for second year. It will be nice to see the boy and the rest of my university friends. The student bars are opening especially for that weekend, fingers crossed it's good weather! Probably jinxed it now...
Vuelvo a la universidad durante el fin de semana para mover cosas en nuestra casa de segundo ano. Será bueno para ver mi novio y mis amigo de la universidad. Los bares de estudiantes estarán abiertos especialmente para este fin de semana, espero que haga buen tiempo! Probablemente lo he traido mala suerte ahora que he dicho eso!

Have a good day :)

Brighton Shopping


Brighton Pier
Brighton Pavillion
Choccywoccydoodah

Beyond Retro

Brighton Pier. Brighton Pavillion. Alice in Wonderland. Choccywoccydoodah window. Amazing salad. Beyond Retro. Leather belts. Old blue shoes. Vintage dress. Pheasant. Vintage bags.
Leather gilet- H&M. Hooters T-Shirt- Dirty Harry. Jumper- H&M. Vintage Levis- Vintage Shop. Dusty Rose Maxi Skirt- New Look. Peace Belt- Urban Outfitters.

A collection of pictures from 2 days in Brighton which is one of my favourite places and only a 20 min drive away from me. It's also fantastic for shopping as you get a great mix of high street and unique vintage shops, including the well known Beyond Retro. I find vintage shopping very hit and miss but if you get a hit, it's a  good day!
Una colección de imágenes de 2 dias en Brighton que uno de mis lugares favoritos y es menos de 20 minutos por coche. Es fantástico para hacer las compras porque hay una mezcla de tiendas de calles principales y de tiendas únicas y 'vintage', incluyendo el bien conocido Beyond Retro. Hacer las compras 'vintage' me parece un poco al azar pero si tienes un buen dia, es un buen dia!

As for what I did buy, I'm pleased with all of them, especially with the leather gilet which I wore straight away. I may stud it. I'm not sure yet. Also got myself some vintage Levi's. You can't move for them in the vintage shops. However, out of interest, do any of you find the sizing a bit on the small side? My friend and myself did as did 2 other women trying them on. Or are sizes these days just way more lenient?
Para lo que compré, estoy contento con todo, especialmente el gilet de piel que llevaba imediatamente. Quizas, lo tachonaré pero no estoy segura. Tambien, compré shorts vintage de Levi. Están en todas las tiendas vintage! Sin embargo, de interés, alguno de ustedes encuentra el tamano un poco pequeno? Para yo y mi amiga, sí así como 2 otras mujeres que los probaron. O los tamanos hoy en día son un poco más indulgentes...

I'm really pleased I snagged the peace belt from UO. I had been looking for it everywhere but always seemed to miss it until yesterday! Frustratingly, it's about an inch too small to be worn on my waist and my hips but I will definately get some good use out of it!
Soy muy feliz que compré este cinturón de paz de UO. Lo he buscado por todos lugares pero nunca lo encontré hasta ayer! Lo frustrante es que es un poco demasiado pequeno para llevarlo en mi cintura Y mis caderas pero estoy segura que lo usaré mucho1

So a very good day by all accounts :)
Would you like to see me style any of these new buys in a OOTD?
Let me know
Have a good day!

Outfit of The Day feat. Acid Wash Jeans


wonky camera- oops!

Denim Shirt- Thrifted
Vest- Topshop
Jeans- Cheap Monday
Shoes- New Look

Today was a day hanging with friends that I hadn't seen in a while and this is what I threw together. I absolutely love the vest from Topshop and normally I steer away from the American print- (which, by the way, is a trend I totally dont get...) I couldn't resist the eagle combined with the acid wash.
Hoy pasé el dia con algunos amigos que no no he visto en mucho tiempo y esto es lo que llevaba. Me encanta esta camiseta de Topshop y normalmante, evito el estampado americano ( que- por cierto- es un una moda que no entiendo bien...) no podía resistir la águila combinado con efecto lavado.

This look would be perfect with a leather biker jacket for a tougher look or cut off high waisted shorts for more of a festival vibe.
Este 'look' sería perfecto con una chaqueta de piel para un look más fuerte o con shorts para un look de festival.

I hope you guys like!

Purchases And Repurchases


Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer
Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Reviver
Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Reviver

Some recent purchases over the last couple of weeks.
Bobbi Brown Concealer
Body Shop Vit C Skin Reviver
Foxy Curls Contour Creme and Spray
Max Factor 2000 Calories Mascara.

And a few words to say about them. I managed to get the Bobbi Brown Concealer with discount so I was really pleased with that however I wouldn't call it a miracle concealer. By all means, it does a good job but I'm still struggling to find a concealer that properly hide my dark eye circles. I like that it comes with a powder, however, to set it which is slightly yellow tinted.
Algunas palabras sobre ellos. Compré Bobbi Brown Concealer con un descuento así eso me alegré pero no diría que este es un corrector de miraculos. Bueno, que hace un buen esfuerzo pero todavía, me esfuerzo por encontrar un corrector que esconde bien mis ojeras. Sin embargo, me gusta que incluye un polvo para sentar que tiene un tinte de amarillo pálido.

The skin reviver is my most recent buy. It may have been a bit of a waste of money because I don't really see a difference in my skin after putting it on. It has a pinky opalescent shimmer when you look at in the light and it makes my skin feel very silky smooth and soft but I wouldn't say it doesn't do anything further than that. The amazing orange smell- one of my favourite smells- is lovely.
El resucitador de piel es lo que he comprado recientement. Probablement, fue un malgasto de dinero porque no veo una diferencia de mi piel despues de aplicarlo. Tiene un brillo nacarado y de rosa cuando lo ves en la luz y mi piel se siente suave y tersa pero diría no hace más de esto. El olor increíble de narajanas- uno de mis olores favoritos- es precioso.

Foxy Curls has been a staple in my hair care for a while, particularly the spray which is a life saver. The Countour Creme is new though. I do like it, and, in keeping with the other products in this range smells amazing like Skittles. You only need to use a small amount on wet hair because its quite sticky other wise and you'd get a lot of the dreaded crunch. Because you only need a little, it probably be worth the money because it will last quite a while. Fingers crossed.
Foxy Curls ha sido una necesidad para mi cuidado del caballo, en particular el aerosol que es una salvavida! Sin embargo, Countour Creme es nuevo. Me gusta y, como todos los otros productos de esta línea, huele como Skittles. Se necesita utilizar una pequena cantidad en pelo mojado porque es un poco pegajoso. Si no, tenrdrás el pelo crujiente... Ya que sólo se necesita una pequena cantidad, se aprovecha bien su dinero porque dura mucho tiempo.

Repurchase of the 2000 Calories Mascara that used to be one of my favourite mascaras and is in contention for the top spot against Revlon Grow Luscious.The formulas are quite different but the one thing I prefer about this is that it has a much smaller brush so it's better for delicate corners or the bottom lid.
Una recompra de 2000 Calories Mascara que era una de mis mascaras favoritas y es en la pelea por el primer lugar contra Revlon Grow Luscious. Las formúlas son bastante diferentes pero lo que prefiero sobre esta mascara es que tiene un cepillo más pequeno así es mejor para las esquinas delicadas del ojo o el párpado inferior.

So I just thought I'd share these with you.
Quería compartir estas compras con ustedes.
 Have you tried any of these?
Has probado uno de ellas?
Have a good weekend!
Que tengas un buen fin de semana!

Lately 003




Hey guys, a little update for you! I've moved back home for the summer- I can't believe how quickly the year has passed. I've taken it as an opportunity whilst unpacking to have a good clear out of my wardrobe- I have too many clothes that I don't wear any more that are just taking a space in the wardrobe. 
Hola chicos, una pequeña actualización para ustedes! He vuelto a casa para el verano- no puedo creer que el año ha pasado tan rápido! Mientras que deshaga mi maleta, aproveché de la oportunidade de organizar mi armario- tengo mucha ropa que no llevo más y que ocupa demasiado espacio.


I start back at my job tomorrow so I really don't know how often I'll be updating because a polyester uniform really isn't all that interesting. I'm also lacking on funds due to having to pay rent over the summer, even though I'm not living there until September... So weird moving into a house with friends. I have bills to pay! I'm so old :P
Mañana, vuelvo a trabajar asi no sé con que frequencia puedo actualizar mi blog porque un uniforme de poliéster no es muy interesante. También, al momento, no tengo mucho dinero porque necesito pagar el alquiler durante el verano a pesar de que yo no vivo allí hasta septiembre... Es muy extraño vivir con amigos en una casa- tengo que pagar las facturas! Euf soy vieja :P


If you didn't know, I'm doing a Spanish degree at university so I'm thinking of starting to post in Spanish and English. If I have any Spanish speaking readers, please tell me if you think it would be a good idea. It would be excellent practice for me and please feel free to correct me!
Si no sabéis, estudio el español a la universidad asi quiero empezar de escribir en español y en ingles. Si tengo algunos lectores hispanoparlante, por favor, díganme si es una buena idea o no. Sería una  practica excellente para mi y por favor, corríjanme mis errores!

Harper's Bazaar & Leighton Denny Nail Varnish



Harper's Bazaar is one of my favourite magazine, mainly for the more often than not gorgeous editorials. I would never be able to afford something advertised or featured in it but it's a treat for the eyes. This month also had a feature on Florence Welch (one of my girl crushes) and a free nail varnish by Leighton Denny. I had never heard of this brand before but I'm really impressed with the quality of nail varnish. I chose this gorgeous mushroom-esque colour. They normally retail at £11 a bottle so for a 4 quid magazine, that's not bad at all!

I initially wanted to get Glamour magazine because of the Benefit freebie but the massive Sainsbury's where I  live had completely sold out!
