One of the best breakfasts i've ever had!

Saturday, 29 March 2014

So recently I went to Nottingham for a couple of days to visit two friends at uni! I've only ever been there when I had an interview for uni there but never really got to explore the city. It's such a different vibe there compared to London so I really enjoyed seeing where my friend was now living a new life :)
We did some shopping (even though I have no money) more like window shopping and explored.
I was so busy catching up with my mate I didn't actually take a lot of photo's. Also silly me forgot my camera lead at uni fun times! *nice one Katie*

On the first night I got there we went for dinner at Frankie & Benny's, had this amazing garlic bread thing ( I could live on it for the rest of my life). We then decided to go to the cinema there. We saw a film called About Last Night. When it started I was like I have picked the shittest film here but it got a lot better. Plus one if the trailers shown was the new Zac Efron film coming out in May (need him in my life :P)
Discovered the joys of pick & mix and there were skull sweets, I of course picked up a few. My mind was blown haha. It's a rip off though hence why this is the first time I got it in years!

The next morning we went out for breakfast which I never do. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and is always a time I enjoy. We went to an American themed diner and I just had to get pancakes. Look at that beauty!! I wanted fruit as well as my eating habits lately  have become bad! It was so good that I felt a sense of sadness when I had finished it haha!

Then that night we went out clubbing. I don't go out at uni as there isn't anywhere to go and I never have time. I drank way too much which I didn't want to do, no idea how it happened. I don't think alcohol and I are friends right now aha

Just wish I took more photos, both the ones above are from my Instagram: @katielmales :)

Buying Make up off ebay.. trustworthy??

Saturday, 22 March 2014

Yes.... I'm still alive haha :') apologies lack of posts. I've had such a hectic time lately that I've hardly had time to look on the internet never mind write a post. I've now officially finished my first show role! It was a lot of fun and I learnt a lot from the experience, particularly about people. I won't go into that though haha! I can't describe the feeling of seeing a costume you've made be worn on stage. It made me soo happy!
I'm now back home for a couple of weeks for my 'Easter break'. Easter isn't for ages and my mates aren't back from uni till near the time I head back (how does that work)
Anyways so I really want to get my hands on the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, it's so pretty!! I've found some on ebay as I can't really afford £37 :(. Has anyone got high end make up off ebay?? can it be trusted??

I'm hoping I can get it soon or maybe treat myself after my birthday which is in a couple of weeks. Literally haven't thought about it till my parents asked me what I wanted yesterday. I'm gonna be 20 eurgh haha

Hope your all having a lovely weekend :)

'Leather' skirt meets casual

Tuesday, 4 March 2014



 A leather (not real leather guess more pleather really) skirt is something I've wanted to pick up for ages! I just haven't got round to it... until now! I picked this one up from H&M the other week whilst in Westfield and I love it! I originally bought it for a night out visiting a friend at uni in Northampton but that didn't end up happening. I thought how could I make it work in a casual way.
So I paired it up with this cobalt blue jumper from Primarni (my way of saying Primark), it's my favourite jumper I own , loves the colour! The blue with the orange on my Topshop bargain necklace works so well! The necklace was on sale and I was inspired by Lily Melrose yet again after seeing her where it on a blog post. Plus it has skulls on it, it's just perfection. The shoes I chose were my studded slightly heeled boots from H&M that  also got in the sale. Don't wear them too often but I love them!
So yeah this is what I came up with!
Just got back from uni and had what we call a dress parade for the show I'm about to start. I was so nervous but it was soo much fun! It was the first time we got to interact with the cast and all of the actors working on our show are lovely which is a plus :) We go into the theatre next week scary times!!
Anyways I'm gonna go and watch some episodes of Gossip Girl (potentially favourite tv show ever along with Ugly Betty)
