Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015.

*picture from Tumblr


I don't know about you but 2014 was one of the best years of my life.
I tried so many new things this year, made so many new friends who I now class as some of my best, I turned 21 and celebrated with my friends and family and so many more fun memories.
I am so so excited for everything 2015 will bring.

Last year, I done a post listing things I'd like to do and the only thing I didn't manage to do was get another tattoo... But it's the 29th of December as I write this and I'm swaying with the idea to see if I can get an appointment tomorrow and go get one... We shall see. I did do a few midnight drives, but not many pictures were taken, a lot of songs sung though. Hehe. 

This year, I definitely was more spontaneous, which is how I ended up with a new group of friends by saying yes to going out and having fun. I worried less, well... less than last year! I also seen a lot of gigs as well, I was lucky enough to see The Maine on my 21st Birthday with my two best friends. Then headed to the pub where I was greeted with birthday hugs and Sambuca!! And then had a house party which was so much fun & I am so grateful for the love I received on my birthday. I also got to see The 1975, Hozier, Miley Cyrus and Modern Baseball to name a few!

I felt a lot more confident in myself this year and I know it's 100% down to the company I am in. It's so great to know you have friends who will always tell you their true opinion. I'm such a lucky girl.

A wee collage of photos from throughout the year. Best times with the best people. 
I'm so buzzing for 2015, and celebrating the New Year with my favourites. 

Hope you all have an amazing time celebrating this year & you hope you all kiss someone cute at midnight!

Soundtrack to my life!

One of my favourite bloggers without a doubt is Lily Melrose, and her music taste is quite similar to mine, so when I watched her newest YouTube video with Zoe London, the Soundtrack To My Life tag, I knew I had to do the tag myself!

Music is my absolute favourite thing in the whole world and I know I've just done a post that was a different music tag, sorry!!

If you like me are a music lovaaaa, please do this too!!

1. Song you listen to when you're happy?
Ehh, right now it's Jackie and Wilson by Hozier. It's so catchy and you can't help but sing and dance along to it! 

2. Song you listen to when you're sad?
All Too Well by Taylor Swift is my winner for that!

3. What song will you have at your wedding? 
Cinderella by Steve Curtis Chapman is the song I want to dance to with my Dad.

4. What song do you dance around the house to?
In my house, spontaneous dance parties are a normal thing, so anything from Aretha Franklin Say A Little Prayer to Shania Twain That Don't Impress Me Much! 

5. Song you play on your headphones when out and about?
Won't Go Home Without You by Maroon 5. 

6. Song you listen to when you're angry?
Seventy Times 7 by Brand New, nothing better than angry singing along with this song!!

7. Song you'd have at your funeral?
Oh jeez. Ehhh.... Songbird by Fleetwood Mac.

8. Song that makes you lose your shit at a party?
I Bet That You Look On The Dancefloor by The Arctic Monkeys. An oldie, but a goodie!

9. The last song you listened to?
Believe it or not it was La Vie En Rose by Edith Piaf hahah!

10. Your karaoke song?
I've only done karaoke once and my song was Man I Feel Like A Woman by Shania Twain, I was awful but had the best time so I didn't even care!

11. What song do you work out/exercise to?
Anything with a good beat!

12. Song with the most memories attached?
Wind Beneath My Wings by Bette Midler.

13. Song that makes you cry?
Same as above.

14. Song you hate the most?
Stay Another Day by East 17. Ugh. That song drives me mental!!!

15. Your favourite song of all time? 
Take Me Dancing by The Maine. This song makes everything better. I even have the lyrics written out by John O'Callaghan from The Maine and it's one of the best things I own. 


Make sure you do this tag if you love music too!
It really gets you thinking!!

Apologies for lack of posts lately, work has been absolutely mental - hoping to have a few more posts up sometime soon as I miss writing on here!

One thing I constantly find myself looking at, is without a doubt, make up brushes. 
So whilst browsing around Amazon, I came across this set of brushes for only £17.99!

O-T-K Boots!

Hey guys! So a massive trend this A/W seems to be Over The Knee boots. & I have to admit that I too obsessed with them! You would think that being 5ft 1 I would be put off over the knee boots but nope! I need them all!

I love seeing these boots on celebs and seeing how they style them. Here are a few of my faves..





pics from google


You HAVE to love Jenner/Kardashian/Cyrus look! I feel like all three of these woman have completely different styles and it just shows that whatever your style is, there is a way for you to rock over the knee boots!

Here are a few faves I have found online/in the high street stores..

Public Desire


When it comes to boots I am definetely more of a suede gal. However all the boots that I am posting from public desire also come in faux leather if that is more your style! These beauts are called Geneva and come in at £34.99! I have actually ordered these for myself.


Again these ones come in faux leather! These boots are called Karys and they are super affordable at £32.99!


TopShop


I am not the biggest fan of chunky heels on boots but I know loads of other people love them so I had to include these. From TopShop, these are the most expensive ones on the list at £135 but for over the knee boots, they still aren't a bad price. These particular boots are called Carbon Knee High Boots.


Office


I love this boot! I think it might be my fave from the whole list, however with Christmas coming up I just don't have the disposable fund. Good thing the public desire ones are basically a dupe for these! (In my eyes anyway). These ones are £120 and are called Neve.


For my last O-T-K boot I thought I would include a pair without heels as I know the heeled versions aren't for everyone. This way you are still able to achieve the over the knee look but still be comfortable if you aren't used to wearing heels daily! This pair come in at £110 and are called Nova.



So those are my fave O-T-K boots from online and the high street! 
How do you guys feel about these boots and O-T-K boots? Are you loving this trend?
Let us know!
