It's a pirates life for me...

Hey Lovelies!

Well first things first, I hope you are all well and have had a good week so far! Can you believe it's just over a week till Christmas? Crazy. I finished uni for Christmas today, when I was walking home I was humming a mixture of two songs in my head ' driving home for Christmas' and 'school's out for summer.' I don't know why I had these two in my head because I was doing neither, 1 we're not driving home till next week and 2 it's winter. A little insight into my strange thoughts. So yes I had my final presentation today and I am so, so glad to have 3 presentations and 4 essays handed in, yes I do have work to do over Christmas but it will be nice to have a break and not have to go to uni or feel guilty whenever I have an afternoon nap, I had one this afternoon and it was great!

So I thought I would just post a quick outfit post today featuring my new blouse from Primark, I did have a couple of comments on my Primark haul video asking to post an outfit so here it is, I always like to dress quite smart for presentations so I teamed my blouse (which makes me feel like a pirate in for some reason hence the post title) with my 'Flack' shorts as I like to call them because Caroline Flack has them. I also wore my trusty Primark boots with them, my winter h&m coat and my berry snood.




Top: Primark
Top underneath blouse: Primark
Shorts: Miss Selfridge
Tights: Primark 

Also if you do watch my YouTube videos (Link here if you don't) and saw my Primark haul video, little word of warning the Primark fur stole is blimmin' hard to wear. The one side is silky so it slips around your neck like no one's business, I kept looking down and I'd have a long side and a short side which looked totally stupid, then when I pulled the one side through the loop it kept coming un done! It got so annoying I took it off and put it in my bag, I bet my berry snood was chuckling thinking 'ha that's what you get for ditching me' also no one called me Cruella De'vil so that was good.

Also sorry my hair looks an absolute state in this picture, when I woke up this morning after 6 hours sleep I kind of didn't care, I thought with the blouse and hair I looked like Captain Hook. Oh I realise this is such a ramble post, sorry about that but if anyone was wondering, not sure if I mentioned it on here or not but yesterday I spent NINE hours in a shopping centre wrapping people's presents for the charity I work for. I was so worried as I am the world's worst wrapper and I had visions of people throwing presents back in my face, luckily it was really quiet, we only wrapped about 10 presents over the day and all the presents were neatly wrapped so that was good! Of course my favourite present to wrap was a One Direction calender, the man looked at me very oddly when I said ' I want one of these!' He looked at me as if to say ' How old are you?'

I hope you all have a great Thursday evening, I am so excited that Christmas can now begin :) hope you all have a great night and I'll hopefully be back with regular posts again now my uni work is done! Yay

  6. Love the blouse, was eyeing it up in my local primark the other day but the only thing that put me off is the cuffs on the sleeves! Primark always seem to do blouses with a really tight cuff around your wrist and i've got a phobia of wrists so can't be doing with tight cuffs! Sozzz for the rant haha, gorgeous outfit and i think your hair looks lovely!
