Sophie's Topshop Wishlist

Mock week is finally over! I think I've failed most of my exams, but oh well, they're only mocks. And I have no homework over the weekend so I intend on being really lazy, yay! I think Olivia and I are going to be posting an awful lot over the next few days and weeks! We have so many post ideas, but the past couple of weeks have been so stressful and busy. 

I've compiled a few items from Topshop that I have my eyes on at the moment. However, I've told myself that I can't spend any money on myself until after Christmas. I have so many gifts to buy this year but just not enough money so I'm trying to save! We'll see how well this goes...Hopefully someone will see this post and take pity on me by buying me everything? Deal?

001: I'm a huge sucker for aubergine/oxblood clothes at the moment  In fact, I have been obsessed for over a year now! I just really want some simple jumpers I can wear with basically anything. This jumper is also meant to be really slouchy which is a huge bonus!

002: I also really love this jumper. I love the pattern and the contrast between the black and white. I'd love to accessorize with a bright, colourful scarf, like my mustard one I wear way too often.

003: Topshop nail polishes are the best, and this green one is no exception. I've actually been eyeing this up for a while, but even £5 is a splurge for me at the moment. Although it's not typically an autumn/winter colour, I'm sure I can transition it into spring and summer.

004: I love snoods. I don't own any, but I wish I did! The dark colours on this snood just really appeals to me. I know Christmas colours are traditionally red and green, but for some reason, I find this snood very seasonal.

005: Aw, just aw. Isn't this skirt so cute, and girly? I've wanted a little, white skirt for a while now. They're just so pretty and feminine. This skirt would actually look lovely paired with the oxblood jumper!

006: Yeah, I'm so hipster. For some reason, the ugliness of this bag just makes me love it even more tehe!

007: Um...I just really like backpacks I guess. I've wanted this bag for so long now! This would be perfect for shopping trips or days out at the weekend. I reckon it would just go with any outfit!

008: Last, but definitely not least, is this gorgeous sleeveless jacket. I tried it on in the shop, and I fell in love. Although it looked great, and was so warm and snugly, my Mum was a slightly reluctant to spend £55 on it...sad times. However, I still love it!!!

Cath Kidston Scrapbook

Hello :-) , first of all i would like to apologise for the lack of posting, as Sophie has said we are very busy at the moment with school, it's horrible :-(. A lot more posts will be coming soon. Anyway this post is all about a new purchase, only a Cath Kidston scrapbook!!!! I am so happy i have found this, i didn't even know there was such a thing.
Front of scrapbook and the label. 

What i loved  even more were the cute items hidden inside. The last page includes a pocket and included:
3 pages of stickers, all full of Cath Kidston designs, 
Some more stickers but this time space to write in them, 
And last but not least a a piece of paper with different strips of designs which you can cut out in strips, stick them down and use them for borders of pictures, etc. 

The book isn't that thick, i roughly counted about 33 pages, so a fairly good size. 

I am overall really pleased with this purchase!

Sophie's 'About Me Tag'

First of all, I would just like to apologise on behalf of myself and Olivia, for not posting in absolutely ages! Like it or not, school does come first for us, and at the moment the work and tests have been taking up too much of our spare time.

 I decided on doing a little post for you all to get to know me a little better. I found this tag on youtube and have picked a few of the questions that I thought would be most beneficial and suitable.

Do you have a middle name?

Yes, I do. My middle name is Georgia. When I was younger I never really liked it, but as I've become older, I have definitely grown to it. The only problem is, my first name and middle name are incredibly common, which can get very confusing at school!

What is your favourite drink?

My favourite drink is definitely Pink Lucozade. I honestly can't thank Instagram enough for introducing me to this wonderful, wonderful drink. I've never really liked pink lemonade before, but I tried this drink and it was magical! I don't even do enough exercise to deserve the energy you're supposed to get from this drink, but I honestly don't care. I'm very weird in the sense that I hate warm drinks like tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Although it looks incredibly appetising, I've never really got into the hype about hot chocolate. When I'm thirsty, I don't want a warm drink. I want a cold drink.

What's your favourite song at the moment?

This is honestly the hardest question to answer. I don't really stick with one song for too long to be honest. I prefer listening to a variety of different songs all suited to one particular theme, and I find 8tracks perfect for this. However, I'd probably have to answer with Lissie - Go Your Own Way. I first discovered this song when I watched the 'Safe Haven' movie trailer (which by the way looks amazing). I absolutely adore Lissie's voice and always captivates my attention when I listen to it. I do love Fleetwood Mac, but for me, Lissie's cover of this song was beautiful.

What is your favourite book?

It's impossible for me to pick just one book, because I have so many favourites. I generally think I have more books than I do friends! One of my favourite books is The Notebook. I only recently purchased this book, but oh my gosh, it's beautiful! Incredibly tragic and romantic, who wouldn't count this book as their favourite? Nicholas Sparks is my favourite author, and I found that he wrote The Notebook in such an interesting way that it captivated my attention.

Another one of my favourites has got to be One Day. I first heard about this book through Instagram (omg this app has saved my life) and bought it just to see what all the fuss was about. If I'm being honest, I found the first couple of chapters a little hard to get into, but once things started to develop, I couldn't put the book down. I did watch the film beforehand, so I was expecting the drama and the tragedy to come, but nothing could prepare me for the intense sadness and loss the book contained.

Last, but definitely not least, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. I read this before the film came out in cinemas, so I was completely in the dark about the plot. I love everything about this book; the mixtapes, the characters and their was all so perfect. I wish I was best friends with Charlie, Sam and Patrick. And I wish I knew how to make a mixtape!

What is your favourite animal? 

Cats for the win. This is my gorgeous kitty, Louie. I love him very much. I really miss his brother (RIP Joey, you were the best cat ever). Cats are the best, okay. 

What is your favourite perfume?

I'm going to be honest, I'm not a real perfume addict. I do wear it everyday, but I suck at choosing a perfume in the shops, so I leave it for somebody else to decide and surprise me with. The perfume that I wear daily, is Jimmy Choo, which my Dad purchased for me last year. I really do love it. The scent is not incredibly overpowering and sickly either, so that's a bonus.

How many siblings do you have?

I have one older sister, called Jess. She's currently in her first year of university and I miss her so much. The picture above was taken from our holiday last summer. 

What is your favourite store?


Topshop, need I say more? Unfortunately I generally can't afford anything from there. One top is worth my entire months allowance! However, Cath Kidston is definitely a favourite. I literally love everything about the store. As soon as you walk in, you are blown away and have no idea where to look first. Every corner is bursting with the most gorgeous, floral patterns and vibrant colours.

What are your favourite blogs?

I love a lot of blogs for many different reasons, but some of my favourites are A Handful Of Alice, Flashes Of Style, Red Brick Lipstick and Zoella.

What are your favourite TV shows?

Oh God, I have way too many. I'm just going to list them.

  • Teen Wolf
  • Keeping Up With The Kardashians
  • Pretty Little Liars
  • The Vampire Diaries
  • Glee
  • Once Upon A Time
  • Great British Bake Off
  • Strictly Come Dancing
  • Americas Next Top Model
  • Waterloo Road
  • Kirstie's Handmade Britain
  • Teen Mom
I'm sure there are way more than that, but that's all I can think of at the moment.

What kind of phone do you have?

I have an iPhone 4S. I am so happy!! I finally got an iPhone in July and have been so obsessed with it. I'm still a technology fail at it though. I'm always texting Olivia asking her 'what does this do?' and 'how do I do this?' I would never in a million year part with my baby (unless I'd upgrade to a new iPhone or whatever). 

How tall are you?

Correction: How small are you? Last time I checked, I was 5"3. I don't actually think this is small and I'm happy with my height, but it is a little daunting at school being so small! You can see here how little I've grown over the last couple of years. This completely amuses my parents of course.

I hope you've enjoyed my rambles and got to know me a little better. Do let us know what you want to see from us next. We do have a lot of ideas planned, it's just a lot of tests are coming up at the moment at school, so things might get a little hectic and delayed. Thank you for reading!
