Collective haul June 2014 - Primark, Superdrug, Boots and more

Hello readers, if you hadn't read my last post you may not be aware that I made a new blog, I just uploaded a collective haul on there (youtube/lookbook/swatches type stuff) so if you'd like to watch that/read that please click here - I will not be doing any proper posts on this blog anymore, and I explained why in my last post. 

Thanks for reading, if you want to see more posts then please go over and follow my new blog because I'm putting in so much more effort now :)

New blog????

Hello there reader :)
I said in my last post that I was considering making a new blog and I did.. in fact on that very same day and I've been busy designing it and making it look nice, also I've had exams which finished yesterday which is awesome. I just thought I would quickly say why I made a new blog so you don't feel out of the loop and you'll perhaps be persuaded to follow my new one?

When I started blogging, I was so full of energy and I put so much effort into my posts and hence my followers number increased and I got comments on most of my posts, but somewhere along the way my effort dwindled and now I see that this showed up in my posts with the relentless tags, lack of informative posts, all that jazz.. so I made a new blog in the hopes that I can rekindle my love of blogging and I'm going to try very hard to put as much effort as I can into each post.

I also wanted to change the style of my posts a bit to match my youtube videos, so rather than doing a haul in the form of a blog post, I'll do a video and then maybe attach the video to a blog post and do a look book in that post so I'm offering something more to you. I feel I should say that primark hauls will definitely still be a reoccurring thing in my blog/youtube (I'm planning on going tomorrow, in fact that's one of the reasons I decided to hurry up and write this post)

So I hope I've made it clear why I decided to make a new blog, and I hope you'll feel tempted to follow it here or if you're reading it via a mobile device and cannot access the link then here -

Thanks for reading, we had a good run on this blog but I think it's time to make some better posts - don't you agree???

Music Monday #5 ♡

Hello everyone, sorry I haven't done a post in about a month, to be honest I've been so stressed out with exams and I have been lacking motivation to do a post, I'm beginning to wonder whether I want to scrap this blog and create a new one but I am unsure at this point. Anyway, I thought I'd do a music Monday post seeming as it is Monday and whilst I have been scrabbling away at my textbooks I have discovered or re-discovered some cool music so I thought I would share it with you :)

1. Breezeblocks - Alt-J

Alt-J were a band who I never thought I would like, but for some reason I decided to listen to their awesome wave album and I liked it a lot, it's so calm and soothing, I definitely recommend listening to the whole album start to finish because each song flows into each other really well, this is one of my favourite songs from the album but I also like something good, tessellate and taro :)

2. Ballad of a Politician - Regina Spektor 

I don't think this is a new song but when have my music Monday posts ever been completely new songs?? I have always liked the odd song from Regina Spektor but I have found myself listening to her more and more, I think my first experience with her was probably with Ben Folds on the song 'you don't know me' (listen to that if you haven't heard it) I also really like the song Samson and Ne Me Quitte Pas, she has a really nice voice and her songs are quite meaningful

3. The Suburbs - Arcade Fire

This song is so chilled out and I feel like the theme of it is quite relevant to my life right now (if you have a different interpretation to me though that's fine), I interpreted it to be how you are forced through a certain path in your life and you have all these hopes and dreams, then when you're an adult life takes its toll on you and damages you, and it feels quite relevant for me because here I am at age 17 being forced into this education system and all the dreams and things I had when I was younger seem so far away now.

4. Queenie Eye - Paul McCartney

This isn't a new song but it's from the past year, from the 'NEW' album which I do quite like from what I've heard. Being an obsessive Beatles fan, I had to have something Beatles related in here. I think this song is really fun and upbeat, and quite different from what he usually does because sometimes his songs can sound very similar.

5. The Headmaster Ritual - The Smiths

I'm not sure if I've used this in a previous music Monday post but I have been listening to this so much recently, I reckon it's because the end of school approaching (exams end on June 2nd but then I have to go back and start learning A2 on June 9th..) This is hands down one of the best songs by the Smiths, if you haven't heard them I would say listen to this, This Charming Man, Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now, There is a Light That Never Goes Out, and The Queen is Dead - if you still don't like them after that then there is no saving your soul. On the subject of The Smiths, has anyone heard Morrissey's new single? It's called 'World Peace is None of Your Business' which is the title of his new album, I quite like it and I'm looking forward for the rest of the album :)

Hope you enjoyed this post!
I will be back shortly with a Primark/Makeup Haul, exams are nearly nearly nearly over.. for the time being you can watch some of my youtube videos :)

primark haul april 2014 // youtube video ♡

Hello there :) so I thought that instead of doing a primark haul in a blogpost, I would do it in video form to see how it goes because in some ways I prefer doing that (despite the fact I mess up my words a lot and had to edit quite a bit out - seriously wow) but if you'd like to watch then click away and enjoy :)

I'm really sorry if you don't like Primark Hauls in the form of the video, if you'd prefer it in the form of a blogpost then please leave a comment saying so and I'll take it into consideration in the future :)
