Insta Round Up

Hey Lovelies, lately I’ve been trying to amp up my Instagram! I love being able to share blog posts/ snippets over there is fab. I also like that when I’m feeling a little unmotivated with blogging I can always rely on posting on Instagram to keep you guys in the loop with my latest fashion finds and general musings.

I really like themed accounts, Islaay is one of those beauties that has a really great Instagram account. Like with everything I took inspiration from all my fave bloggers to compile my own Insta style. Would any of you be interested to see how I edit my Instagram photos? Thinking I might do a short post about it, let me know in the comments if you would be!

I thought I would do a quick round-up of some of my favourite snaps since my revamp. :)

insta round up 1I think its safe to say that I am a fan of the ‘hold something up on plain background’ shot! It’s also nice way to show off my butterfly tatt! A new thing that I have started doing is placing my outfit out on my bed, very much like my fave brands on Instagram Ark Clothing, this is nothing new or something I’ve created. I love the simplistic nature to the shot, with everything in its place. Material mash-up snaps are so much fun, normally after I’ve been out shopping I’ll overlay the clothing times together and take a snap, gotta love funky prints. How could I forget food snaps, I never really have Instagrammable lunches, not unless any of you wanna see my Monster Munch packet hehe! But wherever I go out I love to take some candid snaps of the food I’m about to eat.

I hope you have like my short and sweet Insta Round Up. And if you do like the snaps I’ve shown and want to see more, just click the lil camera icon in the sidebar or below :)

Oh, I also have some for me anyway BIG news (which some of you might have seen on my other social channels)! Via The Blogger Programme I’ve been able to connect with the lovely guys at Love Clothing, and I’ve contributed a post for their revamped blog. My post is a short piece about the mega babe Ella Eyre, if you fancy a read you can find it > here < I’m hoping to write some more posts for them, I’ll let you guys know when things get rolling!

See  ya,

Hey Lovelies,

So you may or may not know that yesterday I got my 4th tattoo! It is by far the biggest tattoo I am probably ever gonna get! And I love it! I went to Rag & Bone in Norwich which is located upstairs in Phillip Browne Menswear! I am absolutely trilled with my tattoo, Wink, the amazing tattooist who has done all my other tattoos, put his spin on the roses design and its perfect! Not gonna lie it did hurt quite a lot this time, but was done in around 1 hr 10 mins, the outline taking the longest to do! My Mum also had her very first tattoo, a dandelion, again done by Wink, it looks so cute! And she is so pleased with it!

I know this won’t be my last tattoo, but I know the others from now on will be smaller in size! Tattoo’s aren’t for everyone, but if you like it and it means something to you then I’d say go for it! And if your unsure get some transfer tattoos and see if you like the look of a tattoo! Or like me, get them so you can cover them up! After all, they are for you and not just to show off!

See ya,

x Jenny

Is That Your Real Hair? « OOTD

katy perry ootd 2

Hey Lovelies,

As a small follow-up to my Katy Perry Concert post, here’s a quick OOTD for that evening! I made a very impulsive purchase the Saturday before the show, this beautiful pastel dip dye wig from CLAIRE’S ACCESSORIES, I went in there to browse at the Katy Perry Prism jewellery collection and saw a blue and a pink wig as a display prop! My Mum and I promptly asked if they were selling them, they weren’t but they did have a couple of other wigs, on being a bob style pink one and the other this beauty! It was £25 but compared to any of the other wigs the quality was so good. On the day of the show I did freak out a bit and almost talked myself out of wearing it, but then I had an idea!!!! Why don’t I (well the Mama) cut a fringe into it, as it was just a very deep side parting and look a little to ’emo’ for me! With a few snips of the scissors in the hotel room, voila!!! My new and improved Katy Perry esq. wig!! I added my TOPSHOP floral crown just to make it a bit more ‘me’! So many people were asking me if it was my actual hair, and that the fringe made it look more realistic! It would be so freakin’ cool to have hair like this!! haha!!

To keep the look bright and colour just like Katy Perry, I wore this beautiful red, black and white floral two piece from NEW LOOK! It is so comfy and flattering, as I do get worried with midi skirts making me look really short! I paired it with my MR SHOES cut out boots and black frilly socks from PRIMARK.

See ya,

Shhhh I be Cuttin’ + Stickin’ all night long…

Hey Lovelies,

I thought I would share with you some of my scrapbook pages, there is no specific order to it, just anything that catches my eye, cut out/torn out of a magazine and stuck in. Old school scrapbooks are bigger than mine but I wanted something more compact. I got my notebook from Paperchase, it has 2/3rds white paper and 1/3rd brown paper, I can’t wait to get to the brown paper. I may even have that section dedicated to one specific colour or trend. Who knows!

So yeah I’m just rambling really! I just find it so relaxing having a scrapbook, whenever I’m not in the mood to blog or just need a break from the computer I’ll turn to my magazines and tear them up!! Haha!

Some of the tools I use: glue, clear tape, scissors, chevron scissors, patterned tape, gems, mini pegs, coloured tissue paper. You can use anything you like to make it more YOU! :)

Do any of you keep a scrapbook full of bits and bobs? I’d love to see any posts on them if you have! I will do an update after the next load of pages, as I do go on about scrapbooking quite a bit!

See ya,

x Jenny

Fluffy + Pink « SkinnyDipLondon

skinny dip

 

Hey Lovelies,

I have such a thing about phone cases! I have a drawer full of them, since upgrading to the iPhone 5S I have had to put away all of my iPhone 4 cases, including a very cute one with a pug face on it!
I’ve loved SkinnyDip for ages, I’ve had a few of the ‘bling’ cases before but I was in the need of an update, and this case! Oh my God! It’s pink and fluffy! And so freakin’ cute! I got it from there website for £18, but I know they do have concession stands in both Topshop and River Island. It arrived after about 2 days which I thought was really quick as they say on the delivery options it can take 3-4 days! It’s so soft and has a gold rectangle feature around the camera piece, which even though you can’t see the gold of my iPhone matches it perfectly!

I do love pink so thought I’d show off some of my fave pink nail varnishes too, both of them being Ciate. The light pink is ‘Amazing Gracie’ I like just having one coat of this as its quite sheer and can create the look of a french manicure. The other being ‘Kiss Chase’ a cute bubblegum pop pink!

So if you are looking for something a little different for your iPhone, then I’d say SkinnyDip is the place to look! I don’t think I’ll stray from there cases for some time to come.

See ya,

x Jenny

A Place to Dream « Home

dream roomAll images from weheartit.com

Hey lovelies,

I think we all have those images in our heads of perfectly decorated bedrooms, all light and spacious. I’ve been slowly but surely been transforming my room to my dream room. With the help of Mum and Dad of course, but in the end the look of my room is gonna be something I will enjoy being in, gone are the days when your bedroom is mainly for sleeping, nowadays they can be places to hang out, and a workspace too. And not forgetting a places for your never-ending amount of clothes and shoes and bags!!! Storage can sometimes be a nightmare, I am on the hunt for a chest to put some of my shoes in as my shoe rack is pretty crammed! Whoops!

I wouldn’t say in a border, but when you spend your well-earned money on something only to not really like it anymore after a while its like throwing money away. And there’s always the old ‘I’ll wear it one day’! Yeah right!

Anyway back to my room, it’s quite a long room with a window at one end, so light doesn’t tend to travel far which is soooooo annoying when I want to get blog photos done (beauty and that kinda stuff). Luckily my bed is next to the window so its kinda like my mini studio for my beauty products shots! ha!

I think when my room is in its prime moment of looking really great, I’m gonna do like a bedroom tour for you guys, and maybe a day in the life post for when I’m doing my photos and all that! Always looking to try different types of posts.

Do you have a dream bedroom in mind? Does it resemble the many images on weheartit + Pinterest? My guesses is yes… Oh on that note I do have Pinterest but in all honesty I don’t really get it, so if you guys have it too please send your links over in the comments I’d love to have a browse and then maybe figure out what it’s all about!

Happy dreaming guys.

See ya,

x Jenny
