Wednesday want week 6: Alexander Wang

The Alexander Wang Rocco bag is to die for.  I would literally kill for this bag.  You can get them with different coloured studs and in a drawstring version, which I do kind of prefer, I love drawstring bags.  The only problem with this bag is the weight.  Not so long ago my mum did actually buy one of these (and they're not cheap let me tell you) and she was delighted until she was going to take it out with her and discovered how heavy it actually was.  The studs were mega heavy and the bag could give you shoulder ache after not long at all without you actually having things in it yet.  However, I reckon I could definitely endure a sore shoulder for this bag!love amy x

Catch up

Sorry about the bad quality pic! - Source
Hiya! Just a quick catch up as I don't have much time to post.  I'm now back at school which I'm gutted about, the holidays went by so fast!  They were amazing anyway, so I'm happy about that aspect, but I also did absolutely no revision so a big catch up is due, especially with art, as I'm supposed to know what I'm doing for my final piece already and I have no clue!  These factors will mean that my posts will be less frequent and probably shorter and less quality but I'll try my absolute hardest! 

Anyway, I went to Bournemouth again yesterday as my mum decided we were going to have a family day out, to spend some time together as a collective as we don't get to do it often, because my step-dad is always at work, one of my brothers is at boarding school, the other is at golf all the time and I spend a lot of time out and tend to avoid too much family at once!  It was good though, nice to spend some time with the whole family, even though it isn't as fun as going with your friends!

I also want to say a massive thank you to all my followers.  I know there may not be too many of you, a humble 25, but you all mean the world to me.  All the comments I get on my posts are so lovely and really make me feel like the effort I put into my blogging and stuff is worthwhile and that I'm part of the community? (as cheesy as that sounds!).  But yeah, I will try and keep up the good posts so look forward that I guess (:

Happy Egg Day

If you're a reader of my blog you may know that I have a baby brother called Freddie, he's nearly 9 months old now and I love him to pieces!  The other day my mum made me do a photoshoot of him in his easter bunny suit so she could put the pictures on his christening invitations.  As it's easter I thought I'd share a few of the ones I took.  They're nothing professional, the backdrop is just a bedsheet draped over a sofa, and the lighting isn't at it's best but hope you like them anyway!  You can see a few more on my flickr.
Happy easter everybody (:

Sorry about the 3 day blog absence! I've not been home much lately so I haven't had a chance to make a post.  These photos are from yesterday when I went to Bentley with a load of friends to have a picnic. The weather has been amazing lately, and it was a really sunny day.  The downside was that I managed to leave my sunglasses on the train on the way there (not having much luck with trains at the moment!) so the sun was in my eyes all day.  Hope I don't make that mistake again any time soon!  As you can see from the pictures, there were a load of kids we were playing with.  I don't particularly know why there were so many of them, I think they came from other picnicking families, but they were so hyper, playing tag with everyone and tackling and piling up on Maria (see photo 5!).  Also, if you're interested, you can find these photos on my flickr.

Apologies for the rambling, I'm really tired!  Earlier today I went to Guildford with Alex to buy him some new clothes as I went through his wardrobe with him and he only has a few items of clothing that he actually wears, which I cleaned out.  We did pretty well, bought quite a lot of stuff despite only spending £60!  Unfortunately my feet ache big time as I was only wearing gladiator sandals so was no cushioning from the ground etc and I also have stripy tanlines from them too, not great!

I went to my friends barbecue last night as well, so I may post some pictures from that too in a post either later on or tomorrow.  I'll see how I go as I need to crack on with the heavy revision ASAP!

Wednesday want week 5: infinity ring

me dá?

I stumbled across the top picture on tumblr and fell in love with this gorgeous infinity ring.  I've always had a thing about infinity symbols and this is perfect!  I did some research and found the seller, she's called Rachael Sudlow and has her own gorgeous online store here.  I love all of her jewellery, the ring obviously being one of my favourites.  At $38 (£23.29) it's not exactly within my price range but nonetheless, on my wishlist!

Sorry guys, didn't get to post the beach pictures yesterday!  I was procrastinating the whole day then when it came to creating the post the photos were taking mega long to upload and then I got told to go to bed cause I had to get up at 7am today as mums dragging me off to the gym again.  I went yesterday, and if you're a follower of my Twitter you'll know that I left my iPhone on the train on the way to Bournemouth, thus I didn't have an iPod to take to the gym.  My mum was kind enough to lend me hers so I synced all my music, got to the gym, started listening and to my dismay the iPod cut out before I'd even finished listening to one song.  Turns out the battery is ruined as it is constantly charging on the iPod dock, which is really bad for them.  I had to listen to the 'gym' music so had no exercise motivation whatsoever so didn't really get a great workout, then when Justin Bieber started playing I just could not go on haha.

Anyway, Bournemouth was actually really great! I took a load of photos, which are, obviously, above and also on my flickr.  Sorry if the post takes ages to load, I kind of overloaded photowise!  But yeah, one of the best days out in a while, was just really relaxed and got to socialise properly, rather than catching the train to Camberley and sitting in a skanky park or some run down car park.  It turned out to be really sunny and nice, and it turns out that someone found my phone on the train and they are supposedly mailing it back to me which is so lucky!  So everything turned out incredibly well!  Also, my friend Louis (who should definitely get a flickr or something!) has recently got into making little films, and he's really good!  He video'd our day in Bournemouth and I got him to upload it to a public site rather than Facebook so I could share it.  Its just above and I suggest you watch it, he's so talented, and it's a really lovely video(:
