V FEST 16′ Plus Big Blog Announcement!

 

V Festival 2016 was pretty crazy…My first time camping at a festival so I was pretty nervous! It wasn’t smooth sailing I’ll be honest! But it was one hell of a weekend! My main reasoning for buying the ticket was Justin Bieber (queue boo’s) Sia and Rihanna performing. Firstly I will just personally shut down the rumour Biebs was miming, I don’t want to be controversial or anything…Yes he did have a backing track (like most artists I saw that day did) and yes he did talk a fair bit, but I feel like he was really trying to connect with the audience and that makes a nice change from some artists who just perform then walk of the stage. I’ve seen him in concert quite a few times and he usually has a backing track as he dances quite a bit, so any awkward silence’s are avoided, also he did sing over the backing track and performed two acoustic accapella songs! It was just a shame that a few people had to ruin it for the people that were there to actually watch his performance.

Aside from my Bieber rant (SORRY) see what I did there? πŸ˜‰ I had the most amazing time and myself and my friends were lucky enough to have the most awesome camping neighbours who we spent most of our weekend with. We managed to see alot of acts over the weekend;

Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Sia, Stormzy, Foxes, Bastille, All Saints, Bebe Rexha, Little Mix, David Guetta, among a few…I always think festivals are really worth the money as to pay to see all of the acts you end up seeing individually would be incomprehensible. And I met my favourite beauty instagammer, the amazing Sophie Richardson! @sophiehannahrichardson (Queue fan girling.) I’ve just compiled a a few photos from the weekend below, followed by my blog’s big announcement! πŸ˜€Β

As can be seen above, I was but a shadow of my formal self by the end of the weekend! (My mum took this picture when collecting me on Monday…)

SO, my blog’s big announcement…As of Thursday 1st September I am very excited to announce I will start VLOGGING. I am in the process of creating my Youtube channel in connection with my blog Custom Made Character and I will be posting once a week on lifestyle, beauty and fashion topics. I would really appreciate support from as many of you as possible in my new venture and don’t worry I will still be posting on my blog at least twice a week!

Charity Shop Haul!!!

Hi guys!

So this is my first ever ‘haul’ post, so of course it’s got to be a charity shop haul! My obsession with charity shops has slowly grown over the years for three reasons…

Reason 1: I am poor…

Reason 2: I am a student and I am poor…

Reason 3: You can find some amazing gems and almost replicas of pieces in high street stores for a tiny fraction of the price!

So I set of to my local town to change my cash into euros for my holiday to Majorca! (See one of my previous posts for wonderfully cheap holiday high street bargains!) And my mum saw a pretty floral dress in the window of Scope charity shop, so we went in for her to try it on! Whilst I was waiting I couldn’t help but have a look around and I’m glad I did, I found some great little pieces that will be perfect to add to my holiday/Summer wardrobe!

So first of all I found these cute little sheer tank tops, perfect for day or evening and a great material to wear on holiday when it’s going to be so warm! At just Β£2.00 each!Β Then whilst rummaging through the rails i was lucky enough to find a lush white peplum skirt (which I have been wanting for some time) for Β£3.00!Β And just as I was about to pay A beautiful bright blue top caught my eye in the corner of the shop. And to my surprise it was from River Island, and in great condition! Perfect for a night out on holiday! Here are some pictures of me wearing my charity shop finds. (Sorry for the bad picture quality!)

So there you have it! My first charity shop haul post and it just goes to show that sometimes you don’t need to spend so much on that perfect tee or skirt when there’s charity shops waiting to be rummaged!

I’d love to know if you’ve found any gem buys at charity stores or if theres any particularly great charity shops to go to, let me know in the comments! Share the lovee πŸ˜€

Peaceeeeee! xo.

A Casual Summer…

I posted this post on my previous blog a few days ago, which is now inactive but I would like to share it on here, so here it is…

So the sun was out on Tuesday! Not as warm as I would of liked it to be, but sun is still good! And summer is definitely my favourite season! I love summer fashion! It can be so versatile. And although I love my pretty summer dresses and skirts, Tuesday was a chilled day hanging out with friends, so I went for a look that I don’t usually go for, a more casual summer look, but still incorporating lots of bright colours and flowers of course πŸ˜‰ I teamed my jersey shorts and crop top with a denim jacket and the flower headband as I think it tied the outfit together nicely πŸ™‚

Denim jacket- Primark
Crop top- Present
Flower headband- Primark
Jersey acid wash shorts- H&M
Socks-Present
Converse

I am so glad I got given a pair of white converse because they are sooo comfy and I’m not a plimsoll/trainer kind of girl but I have been converted to Converse! They go with pretty much anything and they are now my go-to shoes! Love them!
Let us know what you think and thanks for taking a look guys πŸ™‚
