Anyone there? I have been absent a while, maybe I'll start doing this more.
I'm currently on half term, and I get no time to post whilst at school so when I'm chilling out a la maison I tend to get back into it. Have some photos of me wandering around ldn with ma m8s.

I'm supposed to be working really hard for Oxford admissions tests next week, but I can't bring myself to pick up a French book blaaaaaahhhhhh. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Sunday loving.

I'm going to Cannes in 8 days and I cannot waaaaait! My house is driving me mental; the other day my dad lost his house keys and we had to go on a massive search, and when we found them he said 'yeah i knew they were there all along...' so I lost an hour and a half of my life and he knew they were there all along!!!!! Also it's massive sadtimes because my brother applied to loads of grad schemes for advertising and he's just found out his email address has stopped working so someone might have offered him a job and he wouldn't know :(((((

This week I had a look round UCL which was really nice, but I don't really want to stay in London for uni - I'd rather go elsewhere. What d'you guys think? Then I went to Covent Garden with some amigos, and got chatted up by an old, Italian man, who was wearing a vest, ewww. 

Last night I went to my friend's house in High Street Ken, we went to a Mexican Bar and then back to hers for some sushi, wine and poker! This week I'm going to be shopping for ma holiday, and also buying some smart stuff for work experience when I get back. Hope your weekends were good and the week ahead is filled with many joyous occasions (lol, but seriously have fun bitchezzzzz.)

I saw Bridesmaids today with my dad (only guy in the cinema,) and it was okay. Like, don't get me wrong, I did laugh. But it was kind of try-hard and not very spontaneous. But it was a nice way to waste an afternoon. I really really really wish I was at a midnight screening of ol' Harry P tonight, but I didn't get my ass in gear when the tickets came out. My friend's mum got tickets to some exclusive Warner Brothers screening, so he's already seen it, the bastadddd.

Those Jeffrey Campbells I posted the other day have been playing on my mind, I want a pair soooo bad, so I'm gonna have to wait until Christmas, and hope my mummy loves me. Until then, I've found my substitute....... (exciting I know.) These shoes are from a website called romwe (google it,) and are really similar in shape, but not wooden :(
Retro Styling Thick Heel Black Sandals
Pretty nice huh? Don't know why they've got a massive space around them, but I'm actually really bad at computers, so love me! They cost £28.87 and there's free shipping, HIA! So I put them in my basket and they're on the way :) As for the shorts? I'm still looking into diy, and ebay toooo. Hope your day was good and the weather gets better, I hate grey skies.

These Jeffrey Campbell babies need to find their way into my wardrobe as soon as possible. The only heels I own at the moment are my wedges from New Look, which I wear EVERYWHERE, and some sequinned peeptoes, also from New Look. I thought the sequins were cool, but they're just naff and trashy. These shoes, on the other hand, are so perfect for me; not toooo dressy but not casual at alllll. Oh hummanhajshiufhiuw drroooooool! Does anyone know where I could buy some in the UK? 

Ah these shorts are again perfect. Probably need longer legs, but cry me a river I can cope. I need some studded shorts anyway, and Runwardreamz is all over facey b/tumblr, and their designs are perfect, but again SO expensive. I know I could make some by adding my own studs, but things are always more special when you've wanted them for ages right?

I also need a leather jacket. I KNOW I KNOW it's July, but we live in England, I need a raincoat practically all year round! It was my birthday a few weeks back, and I'm yet to choose a present, so anyone got any good shops for un jaqueeeet?

well hello

my week;

001. so i've been on 'summer,' which has been really nice and relaxing. i have, however, spent toooo much money on travel and coffee. i live in zone 5 of london, but most of my friends live very central, or in the putney/richmond area. so i have to spend loads of munz getting to kensington (dahling,) or elsewhere. and then, on my way there, i'm all 'i'll just have a drink/read a mag,' so more of my money goes!

002. i've applied to a job at a topshop near me, but they're only giving out 4 hour contracts, and should i tell them that i'll have to leave in september?! but it's quite chilled as i have about a year of topshop experience right?

003. my dad's cousin is here to stay, along with his wife and his two kids, (a boy and a girl, aged 13 and 10 respectively.) They're from Minnesota, and are so 90s! Literally, they all came in matching tshirts, tucked into matching acid wash jeans, hilaaaarious. but they're really nice so i hope they have a good time in the uk.

au revs mes amis - reminds me of the book about french literature i should be reading (excuse me while i fall asleep...)

Dinner Party.

It's FINALLY summer holidays, I broke up last Saturday. That night, my friend had her 17th; a dinner party at her dad's house. When I say house I'm lying. IT WAS HUGE. There were about 30 of us eating dinner and drinking wine, how civilised. Wanna seeeeeeee?
me loving the wine m8888

me and rob modelling (the camera clearly loves us)

how pretty was the table?

So far I've been pretty relaxed with the summer. I've planned to go to Cannes, as my friend has a house there, and I also want to go to Edinburgh for the last two weeks of August, for the festival. But I NEED A JOB. Anyone think of anything I can do? I'm 17 and live in LANDAAAAN!

Well I seem to have forgotten that my blog existed...
I didn't, but I have been sooooo busy recently so please forgive me if ya can. Just packing up my life once more to go back to school tonight, and I have exams all of this week and next, even through the Royal Wedding!!!! Ridiculous I say.

Right, well, first of all, my hair cut. In a word? Bad. Yup, sorry. She cut one inch off my bottom layers, but not really my top ones. So I now have the definition of a mop YAY! It's awful, but boarding school and whatnot so every night is like a sleepover so I'll get someone there to cut it.

woo summer! now im freaking out due to lack of work, esp composing, music is harrrrd and i have no creative flow or desire to write an essay on German songs. xxxxxxxxxxxx

Okay so I'm on the fourth week of my Easter holiday, and I don't think I've been at home this much in a verrrryyyy long time. My brother's back from uni too, and my sister is used to being the only one at home so it's all a bit crowded.

In an attempt to de-stress I've booked myself a hair appointment because my split ends are ridikkkkk. Can't really decided what I want done though. Do I want a fringe again? Do I want short hair? I think the answer to both of those questions are no, but I want something new.

I've had brown hair, purple hair, red hair, but I think I prefer being ginger. I think. Love getting called names by drunk chavs late at night do I? Nuh-uh... but at least it's different.

lyle and me, he has a funny haircut and we always take the piss.

Black tie.

I went to a posh partaaaaay the other day in South Ken. We met some cool German people on the train and randomly started talking to them, was niiiiice. And then we saw them again on our way back! Creeeeeeepy or what? I decided to wear my hair up, which I never do, but I think I'll start doing it more often. What dyou think?

Me, sophia, sybil and katie.

My dress was from Topshop (obviously) but it was only £25 in the sale a while back, and it has some really cool cut-out detailing on the waist-ish area. I also wore some sweet black New Look wedges which were surprisingly comfy all night looooong.... (I might have taken them off.)

Well the sun's gone in, so luckily I didn't find any shorts in London! I tried on some black ones in H&M but everything is just tooooo short to wear without tights and I don't want to get too haaaaaawt. I went to my friend's little gathering/party the other night, and here's some photos that were taken, yah my friends are gorgeous and make me feel silly but never mind!

yours truly.

I'm wearing a topshop top, topshop skirt, topshop cardigan and topshop earrings. I know that's awful and I do normally shop in other places! But I worked in toppers until I was sent away to school and I still have my discount so it's gurrrrrrrrrd!

Hiiiiiiii, how is everyone doing? I woke up this morning and looked outside and it was really grey, but then after my run (how good am I?) it's brightened up a bit so the sunnies can stay out.

Today I'm going to Oxford Street with some friends to do a spot of summer shopping, I'm looking for shorts which will work with pale legs, how that will unravel I'll never know... I'm so happy I'm on holidays, although I have so much revision to do, it just lets me do things at my own pace and when I want to. Here are some photos of me todayyy, I'm thinking of dip-dyeing the ends of my hair, what colour d'you think I should go for? ellie xxxxxx

Odd timings.

So now my first two 'proper' posts will be at odd timings. It's now 1am and I just got in (crazy), and I don't want to sleeeep! Had such a nice night, and I really think today marks the beginning of summer. I don't care that I have exams in three weeks, and that I'm back to school in two. I just want looooong days and looooong nights and not much else :)

On other notes, didn't get a tan today even though I sunbathed for at least two hours. Being freckly and ginger is not good for being all golden. But still YAY SUMMMEERRR!

Here's me last summer with my best friend at my old school prom. My dress is topshop, my shoes are aldo, and my fringe is existant!

Am I too keen?

So it's about half eight in the morning, the day after I made the blog, and I have no followers to speak of. So am I a bit too keen to do a post? Naaaaaa.

I'm on a four week Easter holiday (boarding school is good for that.) And I got the chance to go to Florence, Italy, for six precious days. It was amazing - the people, the atmosphere, the cities themselves, the FOOD. Here are some nice little photos, most of which were taken on a disposable because my Sony decided to break on the way to the airport :(

It was suchhhhh a nice few days and I really want to go back, and I would really recommend Florence, maybe not for night life or for cheapness, but for a lovely place :)

The start.

Hiaaaaa guys, I'm Ellie, and as of today, this is my blog. I've never had one/tried before, so here goes nothing!
I think it'll be a mixture of clothes, fashion, life in general.

So wish me luck and here I go!
