The Dreams Tag | TAG

I saw Lily Melrose and Dolly Bow Bow do this tag on YouTube, so I thought I'd take the questions and give it a go myself! I tag anyone and everyone, so if you do it, leave a link to your post in the comments!

What are you currently day dreaming about?

Nothing really in particular at the moment!

3 items in your dream wardrobe?

That pale pink coat River Island had in last winter that I can't find anymore (sob), a pair of monochrome Nike Air Max & a Michael Kors Rose Gold watch!  I don't ask for much...

Who is your dream celeb lookalike?

Who would I like to look like... Kylie Jenner! Or Kendall, they're both so gorgeous!

Who is currently "living the dream"?

A lot of people, but I'm gonna agree with Lily Melrose and say Zoella.  Her career is moving onwards and upwards and it's pretty amazing considering she just started with a blog!

Do you dream of love or money?

Love.. I think I'd rather be in love and have the love from my family and friends than have a tonne of money and be lonely.

What is your dream holiday escape?

Somewhere tropical & hot with beaches, swimming pools & cocktails on demand!

What is your dream YouTube collab?

Well, I don't make YouTube videos but if I did I'd love to work with Dan & Phil, Tyler Oakley or Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter.

Did your childhood dreams come true?

Nope, I did not get to meet McFly! ;) Haha, no but really, I'm not sure what my childhood dreams were, but I'm sure some of them have come true!

If one dream could come true, what would it be?

I'd be photographing for high end fashion magazines, shooting the likes of Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne!

British Summer Time; Hyde Park 2014


At the weekend, I got to see some of my favourite childhood bands perform at Hyde Park as part of Barclaycard's British Summer Time events.  I went on the Sunday, which saw bands including Scouting for Girls, The Vamps, Backstreet Boys & McBusted play an all day gig.
We arrived just after Diversity had finished performing, but just in time for the music part of the day to begin.  Pint in hand, we sat and watched Scouting for Girls & The Vamps in the sun.  I've never considered myself a huge fan of The Vamps but they were actually really good live, even if the lead singer (Brad?!) managed to hurt his mouth to the point of bleeding throughout their set!  Definitely a band I wouldn't mind seeing live again.

Then the Backstreet Boys came on stage and my inner pre-teen was screaming.  They were amazing!  They sang all the hits (minus Larger Than Life :( ) & a few new songs, nevermind the fact that James Bourne came out and joined them for a chorus of I Want It That Way - incredible.

And of course - McBusted.  I've loved Busted and McFly for years and years.  I cried when Busted broke up and have seen McFly on almost every tour they've done.  So the two merging together is my idea of heaven.  I unfortunately didn't get tickets to their arena tour - so when I saw tickets for BST, I jumped at the chance.  They definitely did not disappoint.  I want to relive their gig over and over again!  Until I upload my videos, here are few photos from Backstreet Boys & McBusted!  Enjoy!








Were any of you at BST? Who did you see?

Topshop Sale Picks

The Topshop sale is genuinely something I look forward to.  I'm not usually one to pay a lot of money for a piece of clothing, so when the sales are on, I usually end up overspending - oops.  
This season's Topshop sale actually has me rather impressed, and here are my top picks from what I found online!  

topshop

I absolutely adore this pink satin dress & have done since I saw Lily Melrose post a pic of her in it on Instagram.  With a bit of online clothes stalking I found that it was £50 from Topshop, but I knew I wanted it as my graduation dress - and now look at it - £15 in the sale! So of course when I saw it was £15 I had to buy it!
I also have so much love for the vinyl skater skirt but I know I'm definitely not brave enough to wear it - maybe one day?!  The same goes for the fuzzy pink skirt, I'm definitely not cool enough to pull it off!
The Vans style shoes are something that are huge in Topshop at the minute, and these tropical print ones are so summery.  Definitely considering picking a pair of these £10 bad boys up!

Have you had a look round the Topshop sale yet? What were your thoughts?
