Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

Excuse the crappy post title, I am too tired to think of anything else! Here are some pictures I took on holiday by the sea, not that I could swim or sunbathe because I was holidaying in England, but still beautiful views and some interesting backdrops for outfit pictures!

Hehe a rather cheesy picture but I thought all the seagulls in the background made it very seaside-y

And to finish a really creepy rock my friend and I found underneath the cliffs

I don't have much left of my summer holidays but I will be posting more regularly until I go back to school, I've got a lot of ideas for posts including a deco tutorial. I'm kinda nervous that it'll be my last year of school when I go back and I'm meant to be making lots of important life decisions. It looks like now I might take a gap year when I finish school and go travelling as I'm a bit of a Japanophile it would be worthwhile to actually visit Japan!

100th post + off on my travels

This is my 100th blog post! And in celebration I've changed the layout, I hope you like it!This post was going to be on my new room but pictures still aren't hung, and its a mess as I'm packing for the seaside for two weeks tommorow. Unfortunately I've just discovered that there will be no internet in the small flat we are staying in *heavy breathing* and the last time I was without internet for more than a week I ended up doing things I normally don't do...like homework which was pretty terrifying to say the least. So there will be no blog posts BUT I will be tweeting from my Dad's Blackberry (see a link to my twitter in the sidebar or here), and taking lots of photos to share with you all. Today I am leaving you with a quick outfit post and a new blog layout so that makes me less of a terrible blogger!

Some of my recent New Look haul: Skirt ♥ New Look ♥ Belt ♥ New Look ♥ Top ♥ Topshop ♥ Flats ♥ New Look

My vintage suitcases! The one on the left was my Great Grandfathers, the one on the right was my Dad's in the 80s.

This is all the make up and nail polish I'm taking, I'm so impressed with myself! You can also see my powder compact I deco-d with flatback pearls but sadly most of them have fallen off as it turns out clear nail polish is not a good glue.
Photobucket
All the books I'm taking, all Japanese literature I need to absorb for English! I read fast but I don't know if I'll get through all of this in two weeks.
Photobucket
Too much for two weeks? I have wellies to take as well when I'm forced to walk across moors. Btw yes those are fluorescent pink jelly gladiator sandals, they were only £2 from New Look so I thought why not!
Photobucket
My travel journal and my novel I'm trying to write (its cliche but I'm possibly doing English with creative writing at uni so it would look good if I had something published!). I only write in my travel journal when I go on holiday or away from home for a while, so far I've recorded my visits to Marrakech, Edinburgh to see the festival, the South of France, Wales, Devon and France again.
Photobucket
There is a reason for me posting a picture of my feet! I wanted to show you my nail art I did with these amazing polishes which have a pen and a brush so you can draw on the nail, I tried to draw flowers and vines but sadly I am not a good artist on paper let alone on nails!
Photobucket
And my here is what my nails look like at the moment (the black mark on my hand is eyeshadow :P)

I'll be back in a fortnight and posting will resume then! Until then please feel free to:
