Another day off, another mooch around Manchester with my camera (as well as a cheeky Nando's trip). We actually lucked out and managed to avoid the rain that's plagued the north-west for the last few days.
The Printworks is such a cool place to walk through, I just love the look of the place.

Life has become so hectic at the minute. If I'm not at work then I'm applying for new jobs, and preparing for interviews. It feels like I don't get a minute to myself. I have today off, and I'm back in work tomorrow, so today I'm just going to chill out and do nothing.
I have been trying to plan out some blog posts, but it isn't going very well. Blogging for me has always and will always be just a hobby. It's never been something that I wanted to make into a job, because I think it could become a bit monotonous if I did. Even if my career direction went into something blogging related this blog would always be my little fun hobby. I love taking photographs, playing with makeup, and trying to have a bit of fun with my wardrobe, and I hope that fun continues.
The above outfit photos were taken almost exactly 2 months ago. I honestly can't remember what else I did that day. Why I wore this, or where I went. My dress is from Motel, and I probably should have sized up because it is very tight. Now, I don't mind tight clothing, but I can't do up the hook at the back of my neck without strangling myself (whoops). The shorts are my faves, and are from F21, and the shirt is an oldie from Topshop.
In my last post I was transported to the 70's, this time I'm firmly in the 90's. Sporty Spice called and wants her outfit back. This is probably my most comfortable outfit ever. It's the one I go for when I have to leave the house on my day off, but aren't really going anywhere special. Basically it's my fuck-I-have-no-food-in/best-get-to-Asda outfit.
I haven't worn trainers in around 3 years, but for the past year I've been lusting after a pair of New Balance's. When I finally decided to buy a pair it took me forever to pick the right ones. After a while I managed to find these beauties on ASOS and it was love at first sight.
top - Primark. joggers - Pink (VS). trainers - New Balance.
song of the day - Wheel's On Fire by Julie Driscoll
My aesthetic? Patsy Stone without the drugs and alcohol.
It's no secret that I have been loving the seventies trend this year. When I spotted this skirt on the Missguided website a few weeks ago I knew I had to have it. They also have it in blue which I will not buy. I won't. Promise!
song of the day - Everyday I Love You Less and Less by Kaiser Chiefs
Ever since OCC released the Unknown Pleasures collection last year I have been wanting to get my hands on Technopagan, especially after seeing the lovely Sarah rocking it. Last week I was browsing the Love-Makeup website and noticed Technopagan was finally (FINALLY) in stock. I may have done a happy dance.
Technopagan is a dark purple metallic colour, that looks blue in some lights. It's the best colour to wear when you want to feel a little bad-ass.
This is only the second lip tar I've ever tried from OCC, but I already like it more than the other I've tried (called Lydia). It's thicker, so it's a lot easier to apply. The only downside? It's not a quick-swipe-and-your-golden kind of lip product. For me it took about 10 minutes to apply.
Technopagan is long lasting, has great pigmentation, and makes you look fierce (Carlsberg don't do lip tars, but if they did...). What more could you ask for?
song of the day - Feeling Myself by Nicki Minaj ft Beyonce
Beyonce is Queen. Not a queen, or the queen, just Queen (don't forget the capital letter!). Bey is probably my biggest inspiration; she is a businesswoman, a mother, a friend, a sister, a wife. She is everything. I honestly don't know how Bey finds the time to do everything she does.
If you've not seen the Feeling Myself video (Nicki, my babe!) then you're probably wondering what the hell my outfit has to do with Queen Bey. In the vid (which is awesome and y'all should go watch asap) Yonce wears a red Bulls body similar to the one I'm wearing above. As soon as I saw the body on Instagram I knew I had to have it! I may not have Beys curves, but I think it looks alright.
