This week at college was rag week, which is where there is a set theme for every day of the week and you dress up every day.  Monday was animal day, and there was a petting zoo in college which was awesome, then Tuesday was services day, so I dressed up as a pilot with the hat I bought at Reading Festival last year.  Wednesday was 'When I grow up' and I couldn't be bothered to dress up, Thursday was 1st years (red) VS 2nd years (blue), so I dressed up in red!  Lastly, Friday was school uniform day so I dusted off the old blazer and wore it to college!  The week was really fun and was all for charity which I really liked.

On a different note, I took some outfit photos on saturday which I'll post tomorrow, featuring a gorgeous top from Sugarlips Apparel, so stay tuned!

Rachael Sudlow Infinity Ring

I've wanted this ring for absolutely ages, since this time last year actually, when I did a wednesday want post about it!  I couldn't justify spending £23 on a little ring for myself, until Valentines day came around and I realised I could get my boyfriend to buy it for me! (hehe).  It's very late for a Valentines present I know, but I never gave him my ring size so he couldn't order it, but I eventually dragged my lazy ass into a jewellery shop to get my ring size and he bought it for me.  He gave it to me last week and I haven't taken it off since, I love it so much and it fits perfectly.  It's gorgeously made and I can tell that it's going to last a long time, and be a jewellery staple for me!  Buy the ring here and see Rachael Sudlows shop here.

Sunday Summary Week 48

Follow me on instagram - @amyvalentinex

1/ Found a random painful looking bruise on my foot   2/ Mum went mad in the supermarket   3/ Silver hair cuff   4/ Ted Baker purse as an easter present!   5/ Barbeque round mine   6/ Made a voucher for my shop as a birthday gift for a friend   7/ Finally got my valentines present from my boyfriend!   8/ Ed at bbq   9/ Brother's reunion!   10/ Monki Mi'd myself   11/ Cant decide which cardi to keep!   12/ Going out   13/ Chocolate toast, yum   14/ Outfit   15/ Babysham while blogging, so nice

I can't believe that the Easter holidays are over already! I went out a lot more than I thought I would, which also means that I didn't get as much work done as I thought I would, AKA zero, and I am definitely going to regret it.

On thursday my friend Molly had a gathering and to cut the story short, we found out that her and my boyfriends dogs are brothers, how random?!  My boyfriends mum came to pick us up and brought the dog, and we were all expecting some kind of beautiful moment but the dogs didn't actually recognise each other, and just carried on trotting round the garden chewing on toys and peeing, anti climax? I think so.

Roamkix Vintage

Just thought I'd share a few photos of the skirt I won in the Roamkix Vintage giveaway on Charlene's blog, Strutt.  I'm so happy with the item, I think it's absolutely beautiful!  It's a little long so I'm going to take it up a bit but I'll almost definitely post an outfit featuring it so stay tuned for that.  I really urge you to check out the rest of the stock on Roamkix as they have some great stuff with low prices! (ps, please forgive my horrible chipped nail varnish!)

'unicorn hair'

I've decided that this summer I want unicorn hair and I really want to go all out.  I've dip dyed it in the past which you can see from some of my old posts but I want to go to the extreme in the near future.  I want to stick to pastels as I'm not brave enough to go neon but what do you think? Which of these pictures is your favourite?

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation

I'm no beauty blogger so I'm not even going to attempt to review this foundation.  All I know is that it doesn't make me orange and makes my skin look decent.  At £30 it wasn't a bargain but I know that it'll last me a while, considering how little I put on and how much is in the bottle.  I haven't had very much experience with foundations, as I go through really long phases of using the same one so can't give any comparisons, but I'm really happy with it and wanted to share some pretty pictures!

Tie dye tee - charity shop
Socks - River Island
Creepers - Underground
Cuff - eBay
Rings - IRIDESCENT, Topshop

I should be doing a few more outfit posts these next two weeks as I've got a whole lot more time on my hands!  This outfit features a gorgeous tie dye tee I found in a charity shop which I've honestly fallen in love with.  I wore this outfit to a gig on monday and someone told me that I looked like I'd just fallen out of an acid trip, which I'll take as a compliment!
