Things I love About the Season...

The first time I listened to Christmas music was the 25th of November. I was trying so, so hard to wait until the 1st but the temptation was too much. Mariah and her Christmas wishes were just calling (singing?) my name and, ever the people pleaser, I had to answer. I flung the Christmas door wide open and let all of the metaphorical tinsel, mince pies and elves spill into my room. I needed Christmas and all of the magic it brings with it. I've officially given in to all of it (there is 22 days until Christmas, after all) and indulged in all of the things I love about the season...

- From- pretty much- birth I was convinced that I hated coca-cola: I remember having it at someone's sixth birthday party and being completely repulsed. However, on the 12th of April 2017 (a date that I am determined to commemorate annually) I had my first sip in years and loved it! Ever since the, I've been addicted to any, and every, type of cola... it's a slippery slope! That discovery led to me finding 'coke girls'. They are an elite breed of female who manage to look effortlessly cool whilst clutching a can. They have those bad-ass, bay watch vibes that I can only aspire to; trust me , I do! With Christmas, brings that iconic red can and I'm more than ready for it. The season will hold in store millions of photos of me attempting to capture the essence of that immensely alpha, coca-cola drinking, dream girl. And that is one vibe that I am definitely here for! 

- Christmas songs. 

- As you can tell, I'm in life purely for the aesthetic. I love a good scroll through Instagram and winter is so perfect for photos! My favourite kind are the toned and tanned legs under a fuzzy whit blanket. Being an insta God (blatant sarcasm but add me up @words_with_el) I try to recreate these. Sadly, they never come out that great. I've pinned it don to a few things. 1- I'm not a Victoria's Secret model and never go to the gym so there is no definition going on here! 2- I'm the palest person on earth. My English teacher once said I was 'see through'. British weather doesn't help that factor. 3- The blanket on my bed is blue and cream and looks like a 'snazzy cow'- quote from me to Soph last night!

-I love Summer because you can just wander the streets. Not in a road man way! It means that I can stand a 45 minute walk to the nearest park and then just sit there for four hours. Or, I can get a bus into town and then walk around the marina. You can just do whatever because it's not freezing cold! In winter after anything longer than 20 minutes outside I'll be regretting my life choices. That means you need an actual plan for what you're doing, which can  be really great! I had a two hour stint in Starbucks, recently. I enjoyed that because I am the mist basic white girl! You can also hit up art galleries (something I always think would be a great first date idea!) or do something a bit closer to home. 'Tis the season to climb into bed, grab and friend and binge watch Gossip Girl!

My Christmas Gift Guide!!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to the first of my Christmas posts! I'm already ridiculously excited and there is still 29 days to go! Today I'm going to be giving my gift suggestions for anyone who needs help with their gift giving. Obviously, Christmas isn't all about the presents but it's always nice to give someone a gift that you know they will love! That was a super long intro so lets get into the actual post!

£5 or less...

1) Sleek Mini Matte Me 4 set: I have this on my list because this set looks amazing! For anyone who doesn't know, liquid lipsticks are meant to be the next 'thing' (Thanks to Kylie Jenner) so these are perfect for the makeup lover in your life! The only thing I will say is that they have been sold out online and are impossible to find in store. Let's just hope that they get restocked soon!

2)Impulse Body Spray Mini Cracker Gift Set- Rock and Love, Why Not and Very Pink are all included in this adorable set. The best part about it is that it is cu…

What you Need For Back to School...

It's already this time of year again; obviously I'm thrilled. Of course this is the best part of summer with the perpetual worrying about getting the 'wrong' thing and all of the consideration you have to put into making sure your bag won't clash with your face. I mean, maybe that's not what you're thinking, but now you are, right? Is your backpack the wrong colour for you? I can't confirm it isn't, but I can guarantee that these items are all cute as hell.

VANS Snoopy Backpack- Currently, this back pack is sat in my wardrobe, waiting for the sixth of September. I saw it when I was in Cornwall and fell in love with it so ordered it as soon as I got home. My bag was VANS last year and was so well made (there's even a secret pocket)! This one is a dark navy with little drawings of skateboarding Snoopy all around. I've loved Snoopy since I was little and this is just a nice homage to him!
Michael Kors Over the Shoulder- I have never been mor…
