Instamonth #August

Countryside in Ireland || walk in Tilgate park || getting snuggy in a jumper
Brighton with the besty || selfie hoe || got my fave jammies out again
Watercolour doodles || piglets at a country show! || packing to move back to Portsmouth!

When this goes live I'll be in my new pad back in Pompey with no internet *sadface*. Looks like I've had such an exciting month!! Lots of hot drinks and getting cosy in jumpers thanks to the cold weather coming back. Lolz soz mentioned the weather again *shut up ambs*. I got to go to Ireland for a few days to visit the fam which was bliss, nothing like playing with my little cousins to forget everyday stresses. And my bud came down to visit so I dragged him to London and Brighton, weather wasn't great but we still had loads to do :) The piglets at the country show were adorable! I'd never been to a country show and my friends took me along with them. Not sure what I expected haha, despite living in Sussex for more than ten years I don't think I've ever quite fitted in here...

Anyone I'm not following on insta yet wanna leave their username? Mine is amberlove146 if you want to see more weirdo pics.

This week happiness is... #8


Listening to Imagine Dragons again. I used to be so into them and overplayed their album, as I always do, and now I've listened to it again and remember how awesome it is!

Really chocolatey hot chocolate.

Watching the last two Harry potter films one after the other. I just wish there was moooorreee! I've watched them so many times but when I'm not feeling my best they're such a good escape.

Endless cups of tea. I'm pretty sure I drink way too much. It's so bad for anxiety as well but it tastes so gooooood.

Watching best vines animal vids on youtube. Oh my stars animals are hilarrrious. Didn't realise how much this could cheer me up.

Hot honey and lemon to cure a sore throat. I hate being ill, but at the same time it means I get to drink loads of this and it's such a comforting drink. I know I could drink it when I'm not ill but it's just like something for a special occasion... get what I mean?!

New running trainers! My other ones are too small for me wah :( I loved them so so much! My new pair are also great though and I can't wait to get out in them!

My last week at home with my family before moving to Portsmouth (today!) and I've appreciated quality time with my fam and my friends down here. It's gonna be weird going back.

I realise now I mentioned three different hot drinks as separate things. Wow whatta wild week... it's the weather, it's finally acceptable to wear fluffy socks and drink too many hot drinks! Have you guys been enjoying it getting colder? Or are you still firmly stuck in summer mode? I do hope the weather gets good when I'm back in Portsmouth so I can make the most of the beach!

Tunes #2

Chocolate - The 1975
This whole album actually. It's my fave right now. It's my driving jam. I'm dying to see them live again after Isle of Wight festival, they were amazing despite being ridiculously drunk.

Left Hand Free - Alt-j
This songs kinda different to the stuff on their previous album, but they still have a pretty distinctive sound so you can tell it's them! It's still chill but a bit more jammy. (I could totally write about music - everyone uses words like chill and jammy to describe music right?!)

It Doesn't Have to be Beautiful - Slow Club
I've only started listening to Slow Club recently, you might have only heard of them recently too 'cos they're starting go all mainstream. Which maybe isn't a bad thing but I personally don't like the new poppy sound they have, I much prefer the old weird folk shiz. I also much prefer the way they did their music videos before, this one is so cute. If you only listen to one of these songs make it this one, it's so so happy and lovely!

King City - Swim Deep
I've been listening to more of Swim Deep's songs for a while, but I don't like including more than one from each person. They're super mega chill, and even though they're from Birmingham listening to them completely reminds me of being in Portsmouth! Probably from listening to them so much while I lived there and well they have a song called The Sea...

Let me know if you listen to any of these, or if you already have. And anything you've been listening to and think I might like (or not!) go ahead and tell me that too - always looking for new music :)

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?!
