Dip Dye Jeans

Hello Fellow Bloggers!

So life is back to normal now... My days consist of college and work, why cant shopping just be my job? But I suppose we all have to get on with it!

So here are the jeans and hair bow I bought the other day! I paired them with my vintage cow top , I don't believe I have shown you this yet?  I have no idea why because it is a bloody amazing top! ...Along with my fake converse which are starting to fall apart , I think that shows just how much I wear them. They have got to be the comfiest shoes I own. It will be very sad to have to say goodbye... Jewellery wise I wore my all time handy necklace my nan and grandad got me. It goes with absolutely everything, I think I'm going to keep it forever <3 

As you all know I went to The Courteeners concert the other night, was mental by the way! I shall be doing a blog post on it pretty soon hopefully! So look out for that :D 

I'm going to leave you for now , I am off to Zumba! 

Till next time...

Birmingham/New Purchases/Chocolate Hair!

First of all I now have Chocolatey Brown Hair! Thanks to my wonderful cousin. I was getting very bored of my hair, its been the same for years now. I really wanted to get a short blunt cut but everyone  would kill me for chopping off all my hair. So I thought why not dye it?

As you know the other day me and my cousin went to Birmingham , our day didn't go to plan  at all , we woke up late , forgot to do our packed lunch , and didn't charge the camera. So much for showing you all the lovely vintage shops in Birmingham eh? Although luckily we did get a quick shot of the most recent vintage shop we have discovered. 

Its such a cute shop and the owner is lovely! Be sure to go there if you ever go to Birmingham.Its pretty easy to find aswell , its located in the Digbeth area along with Cow, Urban Village and Mr Birdy's :D

So here are some purchases from my spree!
Cardigan - Vintage clothing - £5

All from Cow from the 2 for £10 rail! Bargain. 

Shirt - Cow - 2 for £10
Jeans - Forever 21 - £20
Skirt - Newlook - £17 
Hair Bow - Newlook - £3
Earrings - Forever 21 - £3.50

How cute are these?! I have a huge obsession with postcards. One day I shall have to show you my collection. 

So there you have it , all in which came to just under £80. I think we had a rather successful shopping spree , expect a post soon so you can see these wonderful garments on!  

In other news I am going to see the Courteeners in concert tonight! Words cannot explain how excited I am , although its a bit of a bummer because the rest of my family are coming down from Weymouth tonight and this is the last night my cousin shall be down. :( Sad times for me. 

I'll leave you with one of my fave songs by The Courteeners. 


Love Sophie <3

Shes Back

Hey therrreeeee

This week is a very fun week for me. My amazingggg cousin Georgina is staying with me for the week! Words cannot explain how much I love this girl , we are too similar it is unreal. Why does she live so far away? :( Tomorrow we are going on a spree down Birmingham - which was meant to happen today but Georgina decided half way that she was too cold and insisted she went back to get changed :P So instead we spent our day taking my nieces to see Wreck it Ralph! It is a must see film , I think I was more into it than my nieces :P 

Right then here is my outfit for the day! I have gone against my word and yet again , yes , I am wearing Newlook... Sorry :( Maybe next time ? 

In other news my cousin has finally started a blog!!! After months of me and my sister nagging she has finally done it :P Check out her blog here! She is awesome. 

I'm planning on taking lotttsss of pictures tommorow, so expect a blog soon on the top vintage spots in Bham!

Vintage Friends

Me, my sister and friend had these pictures done ages ago!!! I completely forgot about them and came across them the other day. We went to our local park and took teddy bears and picnic baskets! We did get a few funny looks walking through the park holding teddy bears , I said I was going to start doing that everyday so I became known as the crazy teddy lady.

Hope you like the photos! 

Till next time ...

Shake it up baby

As you all know last week super cool blogger Betti came down to stay with me and my sister. I must say the two days went by far too fast for my liking. Time flies when your having fun eh? On the first day we went to Birmingham and got a well deserved breakfast and shopped till we dropped. Unfortunately I had to leave early to go to work! :( boo , but I did manage to buy 4 funky shirts, 2 scarves and 2 coats. All which came to less than £50. Not bad eh? 

The following day we did even more shopping. This time we went to our local town and went to a few charity and vintage shops where I bought even more crazy shirts and two wonderful dresses. This was a more chilled out shopping trip so to make the day more exciting we spontaneously decided to all get tattoos. Here they are!!!

 After a long two hours getting tatted up we set back and had a big fat dominos pizza. Not long after we had to set out again to get Betti back on the bus home :( We had a very fun 2 days and are definitely going to do it again soon! Next plan is to go up to Cardiff and go to the £1 jumble sale, now that's going to be fun ;)


Two door cinema concert was amazing , we missed the two support bands unfortunately but that did not stop us from getting to the front! Somehow me and my sis always end up getting on the front row! :D The band was full of energy and really connected with the crowd, definitely going to see them again! I apologize for the lack of pictures but we were too busy jumping around like freaks.  

I am wearing...


Yet again :P 

I'll be sure to do an outfit post soon of me wearing something other than Newlook!

Until next time...
