Like a Pro!

I tried snowboarding for the first time yesterday and man it's hard! I've never done any kind of snow sport before either! However once I'd got the hang of it (kinda), due to my fab boyfriend putting up with trying to teach me, it was a lot of fun! My boyfriend also managed to get some pictures of me looing like a, slightly wobbly,  pro (even if I am stationary in most of the pictures)!

Snow Bunny

Hey guys. I'm off snowboarding for the first time ever tomorrow (eek)! Last night I went and bought all the gear and drove my boyfriend nuts trying to find a pair of gloves that matched my jacket and trousers, haha! He couldn't quite believe I cared so much about how I would look whilst falling over, but that's exactly why I want to look good! Fall over with style right?! I'll hopefully post some pictures over the weekend but have a crazy schecule at the moment. If I go AWOL then sorry in advance but I will be back as soon as I can (i.e. when I'm bored of marking, haha)!

Marina and the Diamonds

I have a new obsession! Marina and the Diamonds! She's a Welsh beauty with an amazing voice and chameleon like style. Here are some pics of Marina for your pleasure and perusal. I especially love the last pic, taken from the acoustic video for her latest single Hollywood. Knitted strawberry shoulders? Er, yes please! And she's just soooooooo gorgeous! Check out her music here.

My busy week turned into a bad week yesterday so I felt like sparkles when I went out for dinner with the boy. However my bad week turned into an 'urgh, I'm hiding under the duvet and I'm staying there until term is over' kinda week today so I have a feeling many more sparkles and probably sequins will be appearing soon. Is it inappropriate for a teacher to wear sequins to school? I may have to try it this week just to keep me smiling!

Park Life!

A lazy afternoon spent in the park with some green army men all lined up along a dashboard on the way home!

Topshop shirt and shoes, cropped jeans from a beautique in my village, AA circle scarf, Abercrombie and Fitch hoody, Zara jacket, Urban Outfitters bag.

For my Mum

So my Mum asked me about what she should wear to a meeting. I t should be warm with some layers. I came up with this on polyvore. I think you can change the colours in this outfit to anything you want and I think it'd look quite good for a meeting. Hope my mum agrees! I also spent the morning going through my fave fashion sites for some photos of inspiration, not a bad way to start the day.

I'm on a boat!

Tonight was a mates birthday party and we went to a really cool restaurant where you sit in a giant boat and catch your own fish to eat. Admittedly the fish weren't too willing to be caught so we gave up on the rods and used the nets, haha! My boyfriend caught a sea bass which we had grilled in salt and it was delicious.

Lace top Topshop, white top Jane Norman, Skirt H&M, new Topshop flats that look like cut off cowboy boots.

Style Icon: Kate Moss

I love, love, love Kate Moss! Both her modeling and her personal style. I love how when she finds an item she loves she will wear it over and over again. Like her over the knee boots, or her waistcoats or her denim hot pants! She was always an inspiration when I was growing up too for so many reasons. One important reason was that she's super skinny and super successful without looking like she's starving herself to death. She looks like she may naturally be that thin. I'm not saying super skinny is the be all and all, it's just that when I was a teenager I was super skinny too! (Hard to believe now, I know!) In fact people used to think I was anorexic and it was about this time that curvy girls were 'in' and being skinny or slim was a big no no! So I had Kate Moss to keep my self confidence going and keep me inspired with her rock chick, laid back style. Love her!
