20 facts about me

I've seen a few 'facts about me' Youtube videos and a few blogs posts recently so I thought I'd give it a go myself as a break from outfit posts! I find these things rather difficult even though I've known myself for 26 years...anyway here goes!

A post that doesn't include Topshop ambush boots, this is an accomplishment! My feet were pretty cold with no socks on but style came first here! Hopefully you can see this jumper a little better here, it's so pretty in real life but it's hard to capture the sparkle on camera.

This was yesterdays outfit, I had a photoshoot with my favourite model in the snow. Every time it snows I really want to do a shoot but everyone is snowed in, so this year I made sure it happened. Really pleased with the photos. Today I spent the day filming a music video for my boyfriend in the snow. It's the first time I've ever done anything with video before but I've started putting it all together and it looks awesome so I'm looking forward to filmimg some more and finishing it! A music video is something I've wanted to do for ages. I'll show you all on here when it's done!

Right thats enough from me today, thanks to everyone who comments on my posts and follows, I really appreciate it!!

It has been snowing for a few days in England now and I love it, I'm like a big kid as soon as it starts snowing, you would never guess I was 26! I'm glad I got chance to do some outfit pics in the snow today before I trecked into town.

I'm loving khaki and teal at the moment and this jacket is my absolute fave, it was a bargain £25 from good old Primark but I haven't had much chance to wear it so I thought I'd give it a go today even though it was freezing out! Luckily these jackets are still in style this coming season too. I popped into Primark while I was in town today and they have some lovely things new in for Spring, I have my eye on a few pieces including some aztec denim shorts and some studded light denim ankle grazer jeans, yum!

Another rather boring outfit from me today but it was seriously cold in Lincoln and it started snowing on the way home, which I love! I spent the day wandering around the city with my family, had dinner at the Handmade Burger Co which was so yummy and had coffee at Starbucks. I really like Lincoln, it's a very pretty place to visit.

You can't see in these photos but this is my absolute favourite jumper, it was from H&M for a bargain £14.99 and its so sparkly in real life, you can get yourself one here in the sale, very tempted to get it in another colour!

Hope you're all enjoying 2013 so far, can't believe it's nearly the end of January already, time really does fly these days.


Helsinki Outifts.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had fun celebrating the start of 2013. I spent the end of 2012 in Helsinki, Finland, my favourite city ever, with my mum! It's a magical place and this was my 4th time there, I hope to go back again sometime. Unfortunately it was raining this time and the only snow I saw was on the ground but we still had an awesome time. It amazed me that the local Finns can walk so easily on ice, even in heels, yes heels, without falling over. I opted for biker boots because I'm not Finnish and I'm like Bambi on ice! Finnish girls, tell me, how do you do it?!

I tried to travel light so my outfits included the same fur coat (which I definiately regretted once it started raining!) and boots with a change of jumper (it was pretty cold even though it was above freezing for most of the time, the other times I've been it's been at least -10!) and accessories.

New Years Eve

We went to a gig for New Years Eve and I wore my new sequin skirt which I've wanted for ages with a tee from the mens section of Primark. I wanted to look New Years Eve but also like I was going to a gig. I hate looking the same as everyone else in band tshirts and baggy jeans at gigs, I wish people would put some effort in, just because you like rock music doesn't mean you can't get dressed up!

And now some pretty photos of Helsinki...

I had a fantastic time in Helsinki, I love the place so much, it's a beautiful, quiet, magical place, the locals are so lovely and polite and it's a place I always feel safe in. I would definitely recommend it if you don't mind the cold!
