Hey everyone! How are you all?
I've seen this alphabet shirt floating about on a lot of people's blogs and I saw it in Primark for about £12ish I can't remember of the top of my head but it was around that price. ANYWAY back to the point of this post, I wore said shirt today to sixth form with a skater skirt and a cosy knit cardigan. My friend Tarryn asked if it was from Urban Outfitters and my other friend Fraser asked if it was from Topshop. Made. My. Day.

I have work today from 10 til 4 and i'm really not feeling it. Usually I don't mind as I get along well with the people i work with, but already I feel quite tired and rough despite having quite a long sleep. Ah well when I get home i'm going to bake some cupcakes and watch Skyfall. What are you all up to today?

A few days ago the lovely Isobel (http://lashingsoflipstick.blogspot.co.uk/ ) nominated me for a Liebster Award. I've seen this on a few other people's blogs and it probably sounds crazy/cringy but this actually meant so much to me. It means a lot that people actually read what I write and follow my blog as I've wanted to do something like this for ages. So basically I'm saying a little thank you to you all.
The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers, Liebster is a word in German that means kindest.

Watching The Brit Awards tonight and here are some of my favourite outfits of the evening.
I love Aluna Francis' sheer sequin gown teamed with metallic louboutins as well! With grungy, smokey eyes she looks like she owns the red carpet. LOVE!
I'm never usually a fan of what Taylor swift wears or her music, although here I really like what she is wearing. The gold jewellery really compliment the black dress and the sheer panels make it look really edgy and cool.
Jessie J looks fab here. Like Taylor Swift, she's wearing a sleek, black dress, accentuating her assets. With minimal make up I think she looks great!
As usual, Laura Whitmore looks great! Wearing a metallic minidress, nude pointed heels and gold jewellery to match. She's also a bronze smokey eye. Super cool outfit, she looks every inch the ultra-cool fashionista!
One Direction are all looking very dapper this evening, as usual they all suited and booted, only a few minor things boys, firstly Liam ditch that butterfly brooch, Zayn why the ribbon? Also Niall perhaps you should have left the Vans at home on this occasion, other than that, smiles all round from me!
Usually Little Mix's style is quite urban and looks different but I find their outfits here are all too different and clash a little.
Don't get me wrong, I love Lana Del Rey as much as the next person, I just think that she looks a little too understated here. With the little kitten heels and a simple black dress I feel that she would have looked a lot better in a longer dress maybe.
Ashley Roberts won us over in I'm a Celeb last year. I feel that there is too much going on with Ashley's outfit here, showing a lot of skin with her legs out/sheer skirt combo, the messy top knot and the gold jewellery. Not for me, I'm afraid!
Caroline Flack overcame her food poisoning in order to make it to the Brits, I do quite like what she is wearing although the cape like bit on the back lets it down in my opinion. I loved the navy dress and nude shoes combo though!
Gemma Arteton may be one of the most naturally pretty celebs, but she hasn't half hit a bum note with this outfit here. First of all when has a red sequined cardigan ever been a good idea? but then wearing green shoes to match this as well? Oh dear..I bet this was a bit scratchy too.
Not many seem to like Rita Ora's style, but I think there always seems to be something fun and different about what she is wearing, no matter how eclectic it may seem! However, this outfit is an exception. It looks as if it has ripped seams, too much excess material at the back too and I don't think it suited her at all.
You can usually rely on Katherine Jenkins to go to an event like the Brits in a beautiful floor length gown, I don't like the outfit she wore to the Brits at all. This print dress does nothing for her shape whatsoever. She wore this alongside a pair of aquamarine Charlotte Olympia heels.
I'm not a fan of Bond Girl Berenice Marlohe's dress from this evening. If you look at it quickly you could mistake it for tin foil. However I do like the smokey eyes and nude shade lips.
Thanks for reading, A .x

I don't really know what to say, I'm really bored of everything right now from, work, sixth form, the weather especially. A lot of people I know are going away this week to somewhere exciting and hot, and I would absolutely love it if my mum booked a surpise getaway! I don't know about you guys, but I could really do with a break right now. It would do me the world of good.
I'm thinking a fortnight In Mauritius would be great, what about you guys?

Banana face mask
Especially effective for oily skin types
To make the face mask you will need:
De-stem the strawberries then cut them up into small pieces. Create a pulp/mush from the strawberries by mashing them up together. Then add the lemon juice, brown sugar and honey. Stir until combined. If you want you could add more of any of the ingredients to create a consistency you like. Apply to your face for 10 minutes and remove with a warm wet washcloth.
Cucumber and yoghurt face mask
Use about a third of a cucumber and puree it. Then pop it into a blender along with a heaped tablespoon of yoghurt, once fully blended apply to your face for about 15 mins then wash off with warm water.
