OOTD || little mermaid leggings & chav white hi-tops


choker necklace - some market somewhere || crop top - river island a very long time ago || little mermaid leggings - black milk 
nike hi-tops - dunno they're from the little boys section 'cos my feet are too small for grown up shoes.

I can't even write an outfit post without being super sarky. Phew. #sorrynotsorry mega LOLZ. I mean what...

Again I have to apologise for how cawkward I am... my face is just... classic Amber really. I was actually mostly wearing a jumper with this outfit and it probably looked better than the crop top but the sun suddenly came out so I whipped it off. Now I obviously have to talk about the leggings, they're so in yo' face I can't not really. I love Disney, and I love mad leggings, so when they're put together oh my staaars so much awesome on my legs right there. Going to be living in these for the foreseeable future, apologies to all my other clothes. These hi-tops were labelled 'chav white' by a friend of mine and it kinda stuck in my head. Hope I'm not offending anyone with that, chavs are lovely people really.

What do you think of crazeee leggings? Also leggings as pants?! So many say no way, but when they look like this how can you not?!

This week happiness is... #7


Staying out late at the skate park and stargazing. I saw three shooting stars! Was so peaceful.

Actually skating as well and slightly improving :')

Rekorderlig strawberry and lime cider. So it's not sunny anymore but I'm not gonna let that stop me drinking summer ciders! (Can we just take a moment to appreciate cider please? Isn't it the best?)

Shopping day with my mama and finding the perfect pair of jeans! I have been hunting (yes hunting) for the perfect pair of high waisted 'mom' jeans for sooo long. They just never fit me quite right - always too baggy on my waist but too tight on my legs. But Urban Outfitters had the perfect pair and oh so soft.

Chocolate frappe milkshakes from caffe nero.

Excitement of moving back to Portsmouth building up!

Skyping my best friend for a mega needed catch up. I haven't seen her all summer 'cos she lives in Slovenia and I miss her so much! We hugged our laptops when we said bye...

Seeing my lil sis performing in a show in London after her spending a week doing classes down there - it was so good! Well done bista! ;)

Sorry this has gone up a day late, I wasn't sure it'd even go up. It's been a stressful week, and I know I say this in everrryyy single post but blogging is so hard right now! And I also say this every week - it's you guys keeping me going :') so cheer me up and tell me the best bits of your week! xo

I am, I am trying to be, I am not...

This photo was from a set for an outfit post but the rest of the photos weren't good enough to make a post. So I've stuck this one in here ;)

I saw this post on Kerri's blog (one of my faves) and she had seen it on someone else's blog and I think this post is gonna be doing the rounds 'cos it is a lovely, simple one.

I am...
.Hugely sarcastic
.A good friend (wow that's a boring one)
.Getting better at writing! I think...
.Passionate
.Insecure and nervous
.Sensitive

I am trying to be...
.More interesting
.Less annoying
.A better person
.More focused on actual good things in life, rather than worrying about other people and everything bad all the time.
.More organised with blogging! It will get there at some point, although I'm not really sure where there is...
.Happy

I am not...
.Stupid
.Unkind
.An introvert or an extrovert. Can we really box people into just these two options?
.Exercising enough at all
.Good at painting my nails
.Passive

So. There you go! Struggling again with blogging and reading my fave blogs gives me a lil kick of inspiration, so thanks Kerri :') If any of you have done it/will do it link it to me in the comments! And I'll ask you the same thing Kerri asked ('cos it was a genius idea!) and if you don't do a post of it, do a couple of these for yourself in the comments!

This week happiness is... #6


Catching up on missed episodes of The 100. Anyone else been watching this!? The acting is pretty bad but I'm hooked!

Going to Brighton for a day, and then London with a friend from uni who came to stay. He'd never been to Brighton, and I've been going since I was a kid, so it was really nice to show him around. Even if it wasn't sunny.

Chips on the pier. Chips are deffo in my happy lists way too often, and I'm sure chips on the pier has come up a few times! There is a fish and chip place on Brighton pier and I swear I've never had better!

The Natural History Museum! It was so fun looking around the human biology and evolution sections, and actually understanding all of it, and knowing more than they'd written thanks to my course! I think my friend was getting a bit fed up of my babbling to be honest. I also love looking at the gem stones. So much sparkle.

More sparkle - painting my nails black and sparkly.

My Black Milk Little Mermaid leggings finally arriving! They came on a particularly bad day as well - my sister brought them up to me (still in bed) saying she had something to cheer me up :') I don't care how materialistic it sounds, I had decided to buy myself something new from Black Milk when I got paid from my summer job to reward myself for being good with money this year. Yes that sounds a bit backward and ridiculous but this will just motivate me to do the same again!

This is the bit of blogging that keeps me going - chatting with you guys! So the usual question, what made you happiest this week? :)
