Tears and happiness

So , yesterday I realised that some people just are not who you thought they are and as sad as it is I have decided not to care. I mean some people really need to let sleeping dogs lie what happened last year is in the past and that's where it should stay ( a concept that I know i struggled with but were only human after all) . So I am back to my usual happy self a days upset was a lot more than he's worth if you ask me !! 
So today I am concentrating on what I have realised that i do have. The best family in the world yes we argue and have our differences but when it counts we are there for each other and The best friends its when your upset and down you realise this I have the best girls in the world :) from home and university. 

So I am going to make the most of the week I have left :) buzzing for Will Grace and Karen to be reunited and cant wait to get to castle house. 

So today everyone should try to be happy even if its the last thing you feel like doing smile , sing scream just enjoy life love life because what more is there ?

So today i thought i would write a post on my most coveted item at the moment.

1) Alma BB £790 - Available in 3 colours 2) Alma £1030 -  Available in 6 colours
 My most wanted item in the whole wide world (apart from world peace blah blah blah) has to be the Louis Vuitton Alma Bag. The above examples are the colours that i would go for while it is available in a vast range. There is also other types and Styles of the alma including patent Epi-leather.

Its not just me who celebrates the pure style and practicallity of the Alma

Geri Halliwell

September resolution !

So last night i had a epiphany I am sick of everyone laughing when i announce that i am studying to someday become a lawyer. The reason behind their amusement is my extremely unique and somewhat unusual voice. I have a very strong accent (I am often told I sound just like Amy Childs...'oh shut up ') so have decided to do something about it by looking into voice coaching and accent softening I hope that this will improve my confidence and I am also going to try and join the debate society at university to gain more confidence when speaking.  As Eleanor Roosevelt said
 Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent. 
So no longer give anyone consent , make changes for yourself no one else

Still Recovering

Leaving Girl Herself  - Dress From TopShop
A real hangover is nothing to try out family remedies on. The only cure for a real hangover is death. Said by a comedian .... nothing is funny about a hangover 
 So my fun over the weekend left me in a no fit state to do anything yesterday other than wallow in self pity while watching gossip girl.

Friday night was a lovely night spent in our local night club where we were given free bottles of belevedere just for going and a table. So a night that was meant to be an easy one with not alot of drinking quickly turned into a drunken haze .... oh well only live once.

Me - Dress From Monsoon Fusion - Cuff - Topshop 
Dress Aqua - Shoes Topshop
Dress Aqua - Shoes Zara 
Dress - Website 
Dress - Ella Tino
Dress - All saints - Shoes - Aldo
Saturday night we headed into the Westend to party at Kanaloa.
 I can honestly say we had an amazing time minus the terrible table service , and pure heat due to the fact that there is no Aircon ( we do live in the "1st century come on Kanaloa) This did not however stop us Girls having an amazing time and true to form Everyone Looked Lovely

Magic in the world

It all just feels so fake, ya know? This idea that good things happen to good people. That there's magic in the world, and that the meek and the righteous will inherit it. Too many good people suffer for that to be true. Too many prayers go unanswered. And every day it just gets worse. Every day we ignore how truly broken this world is, and we tell ourselves it's all going to be okay. But it's not going to be okay. And once you know that, there's no going back. There's no magic in the least today there isn't.

The above is quoted from Haley James one tree hill . The first time i heard that i was trying to come to terms with my nans death even writing it today seems weird as if seeing it in black and white is some how going against my nan because it makes it real that day the 13th of December there was definitely no magic in the world. Last night being around people that mean so much to me good people who are struggling so hard to come to grips with a tragic act an untimely death. Sunday marks the 10 year anniversary of September 11th there was no magic in the world that day either. 

However gut wrenching the 13th of December and last night were for me and my loved ones. I'm guessing that somewhere in the world there was some magic ! well that is what i'd like to think because to believe that there is no magic in the world would mean a cold hard desolate existence and one i'm not willing to live. So as hard as it seems as as much it hurts my new motto is to always try and see the magic in the world weather its the sun rising on a brand new day , stars sparkling in the nights sky. Happiness in the family home , a laugh instead of a groan. We must all try to find the magic in the world even when like Haley it seems oh so impossible 

My Magic

Bedroom Buys :

So , Last year at university  i stayed in Halls which means a teeny tiny room with about as much individuality as an Essex Girl in a Aqua Dress ( not a lot). However this year i'm moving into a 17 bedroom house without sounding pretentious i think that makes it a mansion :). I also managed to bag the biggest room in the whole place so i am one happy girly. 
A new house , massive bedroom = A big excuse to go Shopping. 
Shopping for a uni bedroom is a completely diffrent ordeal to a normal room , the duvet's have to be easy to iron you have to work with funny color carpets and it has to be easy to put up with day in day out as a lot of time is spent in your room. 
As every bedroom i've ever had in my life has had pink in it i have decided to Go for lilac here are a few pics of the things i have bought x

1) Duvet Cover from H&M - £24.99 - Comes in both lilac and white Single size
2) Shower Towel From H&M - £12.99 Velour with Jacquard Motif inc Birds - Purple and Cream 
3) Guest Towels From H&M - £6.99 Two Pack 
4) Felt Flower Bean Pouffe Dunelm Mill - £49.99 
5) Duvet Cover from H&M - £24.99 - Single Size 
6) Cushion Cover H&M  £7.99 Cream and Purple 
7) Lilac Duvet Set Laura Ashley - Fitzroy Ombre Cotton Blend available in lilac and blue - ranging from £70 - £100 ( now with 20% of online)
