Zomg Taya has red hair

Hello there! I've had a little change in doo style, I wasn't 100% on having red extensions but they've grown on me :)
I've been looking at London university's lately as I'll be going in two years which is scary but an amazing and exiting thought at the same time. Being away from what you know, in a new environment with new people (most of the time). It's like the ultimate growing up experience... As well as maybe one day having your own family (in my opinion).

So I've decided I'm DEFINITELY NOT getting an army camo jacket. I'm kinda bored of them so many people have them in Nottingham and although some of them are pretty cool I'll just stick to my camo string vest ;) 

I've had this vest for about three years now it was for a fancy dress costume, but I never threw it out. My high waisted dark jeans are from Topshop and I believe they're Jaime jeans. My jumper cardigan thing is also from Topshop and I actually bought this and the jeans at the same time for when I went skiing (I didn't have any warm clothes). And then my black and white stripy sneakers are from JD!

Hope you all have a loverlee day! I shall be posting again pretty soon!

PS. I'd like to say thank you to everyone who has been commenting on my posts, I really doo appreciate them all and I love reading them also! It really does mean a lot to me and I'm so glad people are enjoying reading my blog as much as I like dooing posts! :)

New In Topshop Shopper!

Hello there! College has been so hard at the minute so I guess I'll only be blogging once overy week or every other week, I have no idea what possessed me to do French but hey ho I can't change it now!
So I was wearing is back cutout, embellished front dress from Asos. I absolutely love Asos it's probably my favourite online place to shop... As well as Ebay (of course). My tights are last year from Primark, I've got my worn down Nike blazers on and... New in is my abstract fish pattern shopper from Topshop! It was only £4.50 I thought it would be great to carry sketch books and I get really bored of bags so easily but this pattern is so cool! 
I'm planning to have a scheduled time to actually blog and get posts together, bare with me! Hope you all have a loverlee day and I shall post very soon.

Pack Up Your Troubles In Your Old Kit Bag

Hello there! I said I would improve on doing more regular blog posts right?! And damn right I'm quoting Eliza Doolittle in my post name!

So although the weather is freezing here in the UK, I still can't manage to dress appropriately for the weather. My love for skirts for some reason outweighs the chance of getting really sick for some reason. 

The reason for my post name is actually meaningful. At the moment I feel so deflated and demotivated when it comes to anything! I dunno I just feel with some people in my life, things have been left on bad terms. The song pack up, every time I listen to it, puts me in the best mood ever! I wouldn't know what to doo with myself without Eliza's music.

My black shirt is actually my moms but I wear it more than her and it's from Next. My black pleated mini skirt (you may have seen it quite a few times) is from H&M. My over-sized vintage jacket is from a vintage store and my fishnet silver glitter tights were given to meee! Ooo I recently bought a new back pack (hense the post name) from Ebay, it was only £6!! Plus I love how it's a brown news print, I haven't seen anyone else in one yet so I'm pretty pleased about that too! 
Hope you have a loverlee day, will post soon!
