Ralph Lauren @ Harrods*


Hello guys!
 So here's the thing I have been freaking out over recently: I went to the launch of Ralph Lauren's childrenswear collection at Harrods! *Can I apologise beforehand if I use too many exclamation marks, I'm just very excited* Basically, I got invited up to London to check out the new range of clothes for girls aged 7-14. The look is very typical of Ralph Lauren- not in a bad way- it has quite an agricultural look to it. Some of it I did find a bit Miley Cyrus in her pre-twerking (Hannah Montana) era but the majority was really cute and I would definitely wear.

When we ((other) Flora and I) were at harrods they kindly did our hair and nails- being pampered was lovely. Next we picked out outfits from our favourite pieces of clothing in the new collection. I went for this amazing lace top that had a sweet vintage look to it, the material was very soft and stretchy and generally perfect. I also wore some skinny jodhpur-like trousers which were a soft blue colour and very me. My favourite part of the outfit was certainly a beautiful yellow cardi that had a 50s look to it. I need it in my life. Afterwards Flora and I got our pictures taken in front of a stable- themed backdrop which I will be getting the photos from soon!

 Overall my opinion on these clothes is a positive one- most of them are to my taste and I could easily imagine myself buying them if I had the budget. There were a few pieces that didn't work for me such as some light denim shorts with lace edging but the majority were gorgeous. I would have to say personally that any piece I bought would have to be perfect because of the pricing of this higher-end company. On the other hand, if you are maybe more wealthy I think they also have some pretty pieces of everyday clothing.

 Finally I want to give a massive thank you to the PR team at Ralph Lauren for inviting me and a friend to this launch. I had such a fun day and everyone was very lovely. I'm also chuffed with the perfume I got given- it smells SO good. *It's the Ralph Lauren number 4 perfume for women if you're wondering*

My style: Braces swag

Before you ask- yes the title is meant to be ironic.
(If that's even the correct use of the word?)

Hello, yep I'm back.
 I know I've been away for a while but I hope you understand I have a life *yeah, right...* outside of this blog. Well I have stuff to do aside from blog anyway and some things have to be prioritised. Sorry. You are still my favourite people in the whole wide world though so don't worry, that will never change. I realise that my last post was a bit moany and pointless but I just had to let you know why I'd be a bit quieter than usual.

Since I've been gone some stuff has happened, nothing major or important just general boring life stuff. Like for example today I got my braces! Actually I only got the bottom ones put on today I'm getting the top ones fitted in 8 weeks (I honestly don't know why they couldn't just do it in one go but oh well).  I also went back to school last week which was... meh. school.

Moving on, after all this isn't meant to be a life update. Today I am going to be a proper blogger and all that and do a fashion post! ヽ(*≧ω≦)ノ 

I have to admit I know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about fashion so I can't guarantee that this is 'on trend' or whatever- it's just a cute outfit I like. And I hope you like it too!

Cardigan- new look, Top- La Redoute (similar),
Trousers- Zara (similar), Shoes- Vans (similar)

Just look at my beautiful facial expressions... I hope you liked this post- please comment so I know whether or not whether to do one in the future. This went a lot better than I thought it would- I managed to achieve some photos of myself where I'm not pulling the ugliest face possible which is always good. There is however one I shall show you just so you can see my braces....

Yes, I know I have no eyebrows. 

Finally- I know I've been forgetting to do this for the last few posts- a song. This is one of my favourite all time low songs ever and it has Vic in it which makes it even better:

So, yeah,
love you guys,
