OOTD & DDOA (Daily Dose of Adventures: Yep it’s a thing now)

Today’s family day was a what I can only describe as hectic-ly slow; my dad had a speed awareness course this morning so my mum and I were basically just trying to kill time. Though saying this she woke me up at 10am to make me take her to ASDA for flour for the takeaway haha, I know 10am seems pretty late but I hadn’t slept very well the night before due to having bites (from midgies I think) so they were driving me crazy with the itchiness. I’m so prone to bites I used to hate going anywhere but England but now they’ve reached me here!!! I clearly just need to move away to my own island where nothing can find me. Kinda sounds appealing!

Anyway so yeah after ASDA, my mum and I went to Matalan and Tesco just for a wonder and I started to get some stuff for uni, it’s only a little haul that consists of like 3 things but I’ll post that tomorrow to show you guys what I got so far in prep for my university life. This is what I wore today:

As you can see I am still loving my crop tops! I regretted this outfit later by the way because when we arrived at Preston, to meet up with family friends that we see like every Monday (<3), it suddenly turned horrendously cold ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Anyway as I said, we went to Preston to eat dinner, we had LOBSTER, it was pretty good but I still like the way my dad cooks it the best here is a gallery of events:

I have no idea what my fortune cookie meant but I guess I hope I don’t hear any news because otherwise it will be bad!

So that’s what happened today, hope you guys did something more interesting than me!

PS. Next door are having their roof fixed and the builders are really really creepy like:

Like seriously the kind that don’t even try and be subtle that they are checking you out and watching your every move.

So if I stop posting CALL THE POLICE BECAUSE I’VE BEEN KIDNAPPED.

PPS. I have been wanting to change my theme for ages because I realise the font is kinda hard to read (for you guys that are actually directed onto my page not guys on wordpress) but I want something pretty yet simple nothing too fancy or elaborate and I can never find something that satisfies those qualities. Just wanted to share this slightly saddening thing with you ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Shopping Haul! Finally!!!!

At long last, here is my shopping haul from Topshop, Primark, New Look, Bank, River Island, Superdrug, Sports Direct and Body Shop!!!

Topshop

DSC04883

I got all of these in the SALE and they are super cute, you can tell I have an obsession with green ahaha. Can’t wait to wear them for you guys!!

DSC04884

Been wanting this choker for ages but was waiting to see if it would go in the sale ๐Ÿ˜ฆ it didn’t, so I had to buy it full price (with student discount of course ;)).

Primark

I get the majority of my clothes from Primark ahah, my friends are always like how do you find anything?! ย It’s a sixth sense I tell you, some people can talk to ghosts I can find really pretty things for really cheap, kinda.

DSC04866

I love this bag, there was ย pink one too but I felt blue went with more, it’s so adorable! I actually think my friend Obscuredbeauty also has this bag but I didn’t realise till I bought it, it’s big enough to fit essentials such as phone, purse, (in my case) handcream, hand sanitiser and lip balm (and maybe a pair of sunglasses) but not so big you are chucking in anything you can find that will fill unwanted space.

DSC04870

I have featured two of these shorts in OOTD’s so you should be familiar with them, I use the green ones (with BRAZIL imprinted on the bum) as leisure shorts so just chillin’ in my house etc. I don’t actually support Brazil I just liked the green…

DSC04878 DSC04877

I have only worn the nude ones as of yet and they are super comfy, but I did try on the white wedges and they feel comfy so fingers crossed!!!

New Look

DSC04886 DSC04885

I am loving the mini crop tops combi with kimono’s this year and purchased this beauty to start off my collection! Hopefully I can find more, I’m not a big fan of prints and prefer plainer just colours and unfortunately they only had another white one, but none my size! So will just have to go hunting. And well, the watermelon lip balm was a just-because buy, in the sense that it’s just because I love watermelons.

Bank

DSC04868

I think I’ve featured my vans in an OOTD, but I also got these in the sale for only ยฃ30!!!! And they are so squishy and comfy and I love them it’s like I’m wearing slippers :’)

River Island

DSC04874

I needed sunglasses, end of.

Superdrug

DSC04876

I hate that moment where you paint your toenails and literally like nudge something with your foot and they all get ruined so had to purchase those toe-separator things ahaha, and I wanted to try the Revlon Colourburst for a while, compared to the Clinique chubby stick though, this is just a fake Gucci. But like a fake Gucci, it still works the same. I just prefer Clinique haha, I feel the chubby stick is more moistening for my dry lips where as Revlon kinda highlights the dryness, if that makes any sense.

Sports Direct

DSC04871

Like I said I wanted to start running so gathered real running supplies in order to motivate me as I actually spent money on this and therefore don’t want to waste them.

Body Shop

DSC04880

I wanted to try this line since it was suppose to brighten your skin! I however had to return the polish due to the fact that before I even opened it, I was casually brushing my teeth and reading the back and it said ‘not to be used for sensitive skin’ so I was glad I read it before using it! I did try their softer cleanser but it really didn’t work for my skin so I decided to go back to my tea tree cleanser hehe. I do however love the energising spray, it just smells gorgeous and doesn’t mess up your make up AND really does make you feel a little more awake. I mean it’s no ProPlus but it’s a softer version of that haha.

I also got this scarf from Miss Selfridge in the sale:

DSC04889

but it was actually for one of my friends as she had been wanting it forever but never got round to buying it, so since it was in the sale I was like MEH why not. But yeah it’s cute ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway that was my haul from like 2 weeks ago till now, hope you enjoyed reading!

Was so windy today, hope no one got blown away!

OOTD.

I got up so early

IMG_0790

 

Since my appointment for the doctor’s was at 9:25am, I had to set an alarm to ensure I was up, needless to say that when it went off I wanted to jump off the nearest cliff so I could continue in an eternal slumber. By the way, you know you’re definitely ill when the doctor ACTUALLY RECOILS when he’s checking you out (not in a creepy way).

It’s safe to say my OOTD reflected my mood as well as the gloomy weather today aha:

IMG_0796 IMG_0798 IMG_0789

IMG_0801

My mummy was angel today and deliberately came round to make me food: she made me congee :’) if some people don’t know what it is, it’s just rice and water boiled to make a porridge kinda substance. I describe it like a savory rice pudding haha.

IMG_0803

This is also something I eat when I’m ill especially when it comes to my throat because it requires no real swallowing, kinda like jelly.

My lovely Thomas took me to the cinema in attempt to cheer me up as well as having promised to do so for like a month. I’ve been wanting to see Maleficent for agggeeesssssssss!!!!! IT WAS SO GOOD GUYS GO WATCH IT IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY โค

IMG_0806

IMG_0807

Bless him, he’s camera shyyyyy.

Anyway after that I had a nap (that’s right, not even 19 yet and I’m acting like an old lady!) and then went to the takeaway to help my parents as it was particularly busy due to a takeaway down the road having gone on holiday: so we got all their customers MWAHAHAHAHA. I was feeling so rundown by this point I’m so glad I am now in bed. But my parents treated me to vegetable vermicelli (not spicy because of my throat and it would irritate it, sadface) โค

IMG_0811

NOMNOMNOM!!!

Anyway, I’m so tired my lovelies, I’m sorry this is so brief but I promise when I’m better I will have more interesting adventures for you all ๐Ÿ˜‰

2 DAYS TO URL CHANGE! Btw, I was also thinking that if http://www.chinesewhispers.wordpress.com is taken, I was gunna change it to http://www.chinadoll.wordpress.com. What do you think? Welcoming opinions โค

Watching a nature documentary before work

Nature programmes are my weakness. The amount of time I waste just watching them instead of going out side for fresh air or getting drunk at like 6pm or revising, which should be what I am doing any spare time I get considering how unprepared I am for these exams on a month, is unreal but I’m not ashamed.
I learn so much!
I mean….
Wtf is this?!

20140503-175917.jpg

I dunno cause I was too busy being repulsed at its slimyness but how cool!!!!!!!!

I wish I didn’t have to go to work so I could continue watching this documentary on weird animals haha

Hope you guys are doing something more interesting!

OOTD, healthy breakfast?! Photography finals

20140430-203043.jpg

Despite never really being a fan of leather I took a leap of faith and purchased this leather skirt and I have to say I love it ๐Ÿ˜˜

20140430-203144.jpg

The anticipation of summer always leaves me craving fruit, be proud of my healthy breakfast! Normally I never make time for breakfast even though it’s my favourite meal of the day, I always favour sleep over food haha!!

20140430-203306.jpg

My last year of photography ๐Ÿ˜ข it’s been so fun. This project has definitely been my favourite!! Absolutely love my finals ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

Today’s outfit and minor chit chat.

Sorry for my silence, just been so busy with college and work and mother’s day! My mum ironically forgot about me on mother’s day… I was supposed to take her to lunch and she was completely adamant I never said anything of the sort… not sure whether to take my mum’s forgetfulness about me as a good thing or a bad thing.

I got my answer from Edinburgh today and unfortunately I didn’t get in, but there is a silver lining to every cloud (whatever the saying is) and this has helped me choose Kent as my firm! Before this, I had been stuggling to choose between Kent and Roehampton but now I get to choose both! I’m so excited to finally get everything sorted.

I am going to London tomorrow to go see Roehampton, a day off college is always good ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hope you guys had a lovely weekend.
Tell me if you’ve done anything interesting this weekend or how mother’s day was for you!
