I feel like a bubble gum fairy goddess and my god does it take me back to when I actually had pink hair!

How to style a Snapback with Salaam Apparel

20 Feb 2017

One thing I absolutely love to do when it comes to fashion is experiment, my own personal style never being a set in stone thing! I wear what makes me feel most comfortable and it really depends on what I want to wear when I wake up in the morning. I could be feeling goth as hell, colourful if the suns out or wanting to wear the lightest piece of clothing I can find. I love to layer this winter but as we're coming upon Spring I can see myself pulling out lighter pieces from my wardrobe, whites, thin, long skirts and t-shirts! I'm always open to play around with new pieces that I normally wouldn't go for, which is where we say hello to Salaam Apparel!

My Netflix & Chill Films This Valentines

12 Feb 2017

Hello everybody! With my birthday only being a couple of days before Valentines day, I feel as if I unintentionally get involved each year because everything in February seems to gravitate towards the season. Films on tv, activity to do with my partner, products in store and even clothes, Valentines is everywhere whether you hate it or not and I kind of love it. I love seeing the red hearts, roses everywhere, sweet candles and most importantly the lush products (I bought a huge bottle of Prince Charming this afternoon) and I definitely indulge. Don't get me wrong, I never do anything to celebrate Valentines, Joel & I don't even get cards, put personally I don't mind a cheeky rom com with some bubbly that was half price in Asda! Whether you go on Netflix or the Sky movie section there's so many films perfect for the season, even if you're not particularly into romance, there's a number of options I love that have enough of other tones to the film to take away the soppiness! Everyone enjoys a little Netflix & chill time, and here are my favourite picks to get into the Valentines mood this year!

23 Things On My 23rd Birthday! Yay!

9 Feb 2017

It's my birthday! It's my birthday! I've never really celebrated my birthday with any big jester and I don't really know why. It's February and without fail each year the weather is always pretty crap, so there's no hope in going out and doing anything (we got snowed in once it was that bad) as well as everyone usually being at work. The last couple of years I have attempted to do a mini bar crawl around York with friends or Sheffield, but I'm not a huge fan of drinking so that's always fallen on its arse. My birthdays always pretty...normal like every other day. This year my blogger friend Robyn has come to visit and I feel so happy to finally be doing something different on the day, so to get myself in the happy mood about me getting another year older, here is 23 things that are currently happening! These are things that are making me happy, things that happened whilst I was 22 that defined the year for me and things I hope to do in 2017!

OUTFIT OF THE DAY: How To Style A Hoody

8 Feb 2017

I never thought I would own a hoody as they are too relaxed for my own personal style, but when I saw this Nirvana hoody eyeing me up from the Men's section (yes it's men's, the best place to find slouchy clothes) I knew I had to have it! This hoody gives me everything I want; black, comfortable and most of all grungy Nirvana feels! Nirvana has always been one of my favourite bands and my collection of band t-shirts, records and books is forever growing, not to mention Kurt Cobain was destined to be my soul mate (I understand how impossible this is but I feel it in my heart so leave me alone whilst I silently cry).

My Current Favourite Things \\ February

7 Feb 2017

I feel as if I haven't done a favourites post in a while now and I'm pretty sure my last one was in November! Which considering I love to do them, is shocking. I love to put together the items in a flat lay because what blogger doesn't love a good flat lay (my best friend Robyn doesn't and I'm determined to turn her around) so I don't know why I've been lacking when it comes to creating a haul of things to share with you guys, but if you do want to see what I loved in both December & January, check out my youtube channel.

OUTFIT OF THE DAY: Witches Come Out At Night

4 Feb 2017

There's nothing better than finding a piece of clothing that's completely you and oh, would you look at that it's also on sale! Before I worked in retail I barely went physically shopping, on occasion I'd nip into Zara or H&M after university (how the tables have turned) but I never took note of anything on sale. In fact I think I only ever glanced at the Asos sale online from time to time, or on boohoo, but I'd always go for clothes in the 'NEW IN' section because who doesn't love keeping up with the trends. Working with clothing still makes me want to keep up with the trends, but it also makes me spend a hell of a lot of money. I have this bad habbit of buying an outfit rather than just one item, which I'd like to say I'm going to stop doing, but I really like clothes..anyway. One thing that makes me feel less bad for spending my money is when I find a good buy in the sale, I'm talking about something that's either the last one in your size or reduced so much you have to blink twice and ask someone else if you're seeing the right numbers. Not only was this shift dress the last one, hidden amongst colourful summer dressed, fits me perfectly booty and all but it was only £5!!! My the lord have mercy on my black dressed soul.

My Current Favourite Blogs! February 2017

2 Feb 2017

I feel as if I've been in and out of writers block and phases of inspiration to blog for so long now. I'm certain it comes hand in hand with the cold months because the second Winter hits I don't want to do anything, I rarely go outside because it's too cold and I just want to curl up to watch films (I'm sponge watching supernatural tv series like teen wolf eeee) or sleep! It happens every Winter, I get lazy and it really has reflected here on Heartshapedbones. I've lacked my usual...spirit in January and I refuse to let it continue! So heres to more and better content!
