Peplum Loving, Uni and OOTD...

Scarfs - Newlook,
Blazer, Peplum top and Black dress
- all Topshop
Shoes and Tights - Primark
Socks - Sainsbury's
Well I told you all about my recent clothes and make-up haul well it just happens that I wore these today to uni... I also thought I'd tell you of my day and the trials I have to overcome in my everyday life...

Well today was our presentation seminar and being on a Drama course we often don't get chance to wear my snazzier clothes as my style is usually restricted to things such as leggings, joggers and hoodies ect... So Fridays being a lecture/seminar day and not work where I have to be completely professional , it's nice to wear some of my smart casual clothes - I wasn't feeling great this morning, basically lack of sleep caused me to have no inclination to drag myself out of bed, never mind going out and doing anything. So to make myself feel better about the needs of the day I obviously opted for my new gorgeous Peplum Grey top... I love it on and matched with a Topshop dress I usually wear for nights out it made a perfect dress combo.
I partnered this made-dress with tights, walking socks, brown brogues and an older Topshop cardi/blazer...

I have a true love for this Blazer. I've had it since I pinched it off my sister years ago now when I was 14 - but I've never got rid of it and it's stayed in good nick - plus there is simply somethings that are a bonus to not growing or changing much since I was 14 (well except my boobs :-S) and  have not really grown out of many of my clothes since then and somethings, like a blazer, are so practical and timeless - there's not really any point tossing them away, especially if you haven't grown - well if they're terribly old and out of fashion I make exceptions - as to state now I'm NOT a hoarder (Though those ones on T.V make me giggle hehe)... So chuffed with my overall look I found look I dragged my arse out and decided walking was not an option. Plus, I'd just washed my hair last night (then fallen asleep with it wet eg. I'm asking for an afro!), and worrying it was already a mess (though I was complimented throughout the day) I didn't want to risk an adding-on of the "windswept and interesting" look and opted for the peasant wagon of the public buses - which, by golly were actually running swimmingly on time! Yes, I'm shocked too!
A true student desk, work and teeeeeaaa!




I showed up early enough for my lecture and decided to get my caffeine fix from my coffee shop... But when I walked in, Ben was on the till! That's right coffee shop guy! He said hi and tried to anticipate my order - which for once was wrong as I'd done the economic and cheaper option and brought my own new travel mug (My mam got me in summer yay!) and a couple of tea bags.. So I only needed hot water. Though he did manage to add a flirt in that by giving it me for free - or so he said as I had assumed it was free... Never mind a free drink is a free drink! Though his obvious wink made me literally laugh out loud - which I don't know if he was was amused at or not...

So moving swiftly on from him we - as frankly I didn't stick around long enough, after he asked me out the other day at uni when I was ill (Long story, wait for my Sunday post!) had the long lecture's. Which are always awesome! Well, of course they are if you can get one that has lecturer that has love for the same things as the students do - including the times they makes quotes and references to such things as The Incredibles eg. he used the line "No Capes!" - Ok, it was a "you had to be there moment". But it was fabulous! And worth a mention, in my opinion!

You can't greatly tell but:
 123 Boujours foundation,
No.7 Blemish cover stick,
Natural collection Blush
Topshop Matte Lipstick
After a long day, and listening to more of yesterday's offender Cara "airing more laundry" I did opt for walking home, you know to clear my head and such - which really does show how good the make up is, as even on a windy, miserable damp day my make-up didn't move and was in perfect-tact when I went for the long walk home...

Arriving home I have the best greeting! I'm always greeted by two important members of my family that are never mad at me and always happy to see me! My two dog! Jude and Charlie - so as opposed to being a student I'm having a cuddly night in with them - and Harry Potter!(As you do!) - Aaand of course watching the heartbreakingly close-to-me programe of Stand up 2 Cancer! (Again, a long story but worth the read!) please do visit the site and remember, you have more chance of getting cancer than you do getting stuck in a lift!

But I was also greeted by a lovely email from Cybersmile! - For those who don't know, it's an online charity to stop, prevent and make awareness of online cyber bulling and such! With it being such a common thing these days - that's even happened to me, and they even nicely make kids aware of it in Primary schools now (Though, it is more than sick the person that would pick on a school kid!) because it happened to me I'm still currently in a position of them working with the police and I've just signed up to join the charity - as I'd now love to try and make my own awareness of it offline as well as online....
God, who thinks life may have been a little simpler back in the 90's?! At least then we could still watch Hey Arnold and Saved by the Bell without worrying who's stalking your latest status! This is another charity I think you should get on-board with and stop those bullies - remember even for the likes of me at nearly 20, it's never to late or stupid!

So despite what caused me to get to this place at least it shall eventually have a happy ending! Finally...

I shall enjoy the rest of the evening and start preparing my make-up/face-care regime blog post - which for even an English rose like me, often seems rather long!

    1. OMG thank you! I have naturally curly hair so it's either a bonus or a curse - not sure but is it's messy I pull my straighteners through random bits with it, then usually brush it out haha It's just a messy-ish style - as for dip-dyed I's been partially dyed blonde underneath to give it a fading look, as opposed to the block dip-dyed on longer hair...
      Hope that helps?
      Thanks again!
