More Music

Sunday, 26 March 2017

I love music, and can scarcely walk past somewhere like HMV without sneaking in to have a look through the vinyl, and probably buy an album! Therefore, recently I shared a post detailing a couple of my favourite albums, and after really enjoying being able to write a bit about the music I love, I thought that I would again type up another short post today on some of my recent vinyl purchases...

Blur - Parklike

I'm not a massive fan of a wide range of 90's music, but I do love the whole Britpop sort of genre featuring bands such as Oasis, Pulp and of course, Blur. I have loved Blur for quite some time, but only recently ticked 'Parklike' (probably their most famous album) off my Vinyl Wishlist - I have zero clue why it has took me so long to get round to actually buying any Blur album on vinyl, hence why since I finally made my purchase just a month or so ago, I have had Parkilfe on my turntable quite a lot!

This album has quickly become one of my favourites in my collection due to how much I love the vast majority of songs on there; particular favourites include 'Girls and Boys', 'End of a Century', 'London Loves', and 'Trouble in the Message Centre'. Therefore, I definitely want to purchase another Blur album on vinyl at some point in the near future, and I do in fact already have my eye on 'The Great Escape' which also has lots of cool songs on.

I will say from the off that I'm not all too sure where this post is actually going to go, other than down the route of some things that I have bought or received recently. You see, when looking through the bits and bobs that I have recently bought, it turned out to be a bit of a random mix - mostly, I have just bought a heck of a lot of shirts and blouses, so I thought it only right to mention those in this post. But then, I have also purchased such things as earrings, as well as also receiving some more adorable socks from my favourite sock brand (their socks are just the comfiest thing ever!), Happy Socks...

Hence why I thought I would just compile everything together in a bit of a random way, as you will probably see...

New Loreal Purchases

Sunday, 12 March 2017

Only the other day I was sat thinking about how it had been quite some time since I actually went out and bought myself some new makeup - for me, this is of course very strange, because as a 'self-confessed lover of makeup',  I'm normally always in Boots scouring through the many beauty stands they have. Therefore, I thought I would quickly right this wrong, and purchase some new makeup goodies as soon as I next went shopping... hence why, I found myself at the Loreal stand only days later purchasing two new products for myself!

The two new products that I got myself were, as you may have guessed from the above photo, the Infallible Concealer Palette, and also one of the Blush Sculpt Trios.

February Favourites

Sunday, 5 March 2017

I honestly have no idea where February went, and that may well be because I was actually quite busy for a fair amount of the month - my Birthday was at the end of January and so in early February I was still busy shopping and spending my money from that, then for the rest of the month I spent a fair bit of time revising for my mock exams at Sixth Form, as well as having a week off and also going on my first driving lesson... 

So, with quite a bit packed into one month, I thought it was finally about time that I got round to writing out a monthly favourites post once again. It has literally been so long since I last sat down and wrote up a post of this kind, but now that February has come to an end, I have found it pretty easy to come up with several things that I have been loving over the past four weeks!


I have mentioned on a few occasions now just how much I love flowers, and how I really love to keep the vase in my room stocked up with a bunch - this month really hasn't been any different for me in terms of my love of flowers, as throughout the month I have had lots of lovely bunches of tulips on show in my room, as well as some rather beautiful daffodils at one point too. Although I do like the winter months, I must say that now we are into March, I love the thought of all the gorgeous spring flowers appearing once again, and making everything look so pretty!

After my birthday, and with sufficient money to finally make the purchase, I decided that it was definitely the right time to go out and buy myself a new denim jacket. Before I made my new purchase, I did already have a denim jacket, but it was old and didn't really have the sort of style that I was after - therefore, when I spotted the lovely looking MOTO Denim Jacket in Topshop a few weeks ago, I just knew that I had to get it for myself!

This new jacket of mine is really nice and oversized, which is exactly what I was looking for, and because of this I have been constantly wearing this new wardrobe addition of mine ever since I bought it back in mid-February...which makes the price tag of £45 not seem so bad after all.

Vinyl - What's the Story (Morning Glory)? - Oasis

My vinyl collection has been growing considerably over the past couple of months, but for quite some time now one particular album title has been missing from my hoard - that record being What's the Story (Morning Glory)/ by Oasis. 

I have loved Oasis for years, after listening to all their CD's that my parents have since I was young. Therefore, I certainly regard What's the Story to be one of my favourite albums of all time, due to the fact that I just love each and every song on there so so much! After a few failed attempts to find this particular album in HMV though, I finally managed to buy it for myself just a couple of weeks ago, and of course have been absolutely making the most of owning it ever since, by playing it almost every day!

Afternoon Tea

I had never actually been to have afternoon tea before, so really didn't know what to expect when I was invited along to have some for my Mom's friend's birthday earlier in February. I must say though, that it was a rather fun experience - whilst a few of the cakes weren't really to my liking, I did enjoy trying out each one, as well as a few of the sandwiches that they offered too. I must say though, that my favourite piece of the whole afternoon tea selection had to be the scone, which I piled high with jam (not a big fan of clotted cream), and thoroughly enjoyed along with my cup of tea!

After going so long without posting my monthly favourites, it actually felt rather good to create a summary of my most-loved things from the past month once again! 

I hope you all enjoyed this post though, and I also hope you all have a fantastic March!!
