What Amanda Wore: Daisies & Cream


Playsuit: Boohoo | Kimono: New Look | Necklace: New Look | Scrunchie: Primark | Shoes: Topshop

Tonight was date night, and as we had a rare sunny day I thought it was the perfect opportunity to pull out my newest playsuit from Boohoo. I say new, I've been coveting this number for a few months now and am yet to wear it. I honestly don't know why, I love my playsuits and this one is so cute, from the daisy print, to the cutout hole to the length. I adore it and is one of my favourite transitional pieces into Autumn, with a pair of tights worn underneath of course! Tonight, as we were just having a lazy one at mine, I stayed bare legged with my cream kimono draped over my arms, and my favourite Daisy necklace too. A new favourite outfit!
Wearing my hair up is a new thing for me too - I haven't worn my hair up properly for ages. It's really not my thing but I'm going to try and be more experimental with my hair, especially while I'm on holiday, which is only in FIVE DAYS. The excitement is kicking in now and I can't wait to be on that plane having the time of my life exploring the beautiful city of Rome.. I can't believe it's almost here! Eeeee!

What Amanda Wore: Pastel Safari


Joggers: Primark | Top: Primark | Cardigan: Primark | Bag: Accessorize | Shoes: Topshop

I'm getting to the point where I am trying not to repeat outfits on my blog... and I was looking in my wardrobe yesterday morning and wanted to wear my comfy safari joggers and eventhough I've worn it before, I thought I'd just share my outfit anyway! I had a really early start yesterday as me and my boyfriend needed to go last minute holiday shopping to Lakeside as I ordered a few holiday clothes, and I was desperate to pick them up! We ended up doing a huge holiday shop and got most of what we needed, although we might have to go late shopping one night this week to get those last minute forgotten bits!
For a chaotic morning of shopping and rushing around, I wanted to be comfortable and cool. I reached for my safari printed joggers a simple black cami and this time I wore my favorite pastel lilac cardigan. My shoes were my favourite shoes ever, the skater shoes I have been living in the past month! I need more pairs!

August




Woah. What a month. My August has been one of the best months of the year so far and has been filled with happy, funny, amazing and precious moments I'll remember forever. For the most part, it's been a lovely long month but as a whole it's past so quickly! I seriously cannot believe we're on our way into Autumn tomorrow and saying goodbye to summer 2014. Even though I haven't been as snap happy on Instagram this month, lots of pretty special things happened. 
Being the last month of summer we wanted to make the most of our time and we did! We had something booked for every weekend in August starting from seaside trips to Clacton, a wet weekend away to Hastings before coming back for a week and heading off again, to my highlight of the month, the New Forest. Two nights in the cutest B&B with roaming Shetland Ponies, eating the yummiest pub grub and going bike riding in the forest... it was the perfect weekend away and I can't wait to go back. A trip to Whipsnade Zoo happened after that, a family day out whilst my boyfriend was in Belgium! Loved seeing the Giraffes and Penguins... a trip to the Zoo in Summer is a must.
In between all these lovely weekends, it's been work, work and more work. It's our busiest time at the moment, and I've been working constantly. Longer days, means I've had no time for anything but dinner, showering and a few evenings with boyfriend before crashing in bed, completely exhausted! I did go and see Into The Storm this week though and despite the bad reviews, it was epic! I'm off to the cinema next week again, definetely dragging someone to see As Above, So Below with me! Won't be my boyfriend, haha!

The last week or so has been all about holiday preparation for Rome. It's exactly one week until I jet off to the beautiful city and I am so excited! I went last minute holiday shopping today to Lakeside, and got lots of pretty new things I can't wait to wear! I'm counting down the days until Friday, until I am off work for a lovely long week and can start getting properly excited about my holiday! Aaaaah! Only seven days to go! :D
