The Maccabees - Pelican

So my all time favourite band, The Maccabees, played their new single last night on Radio One. To say I was looking forward to this was a bit of an understatement. I'm not going to ramble on about them, because we would be here all day, instead, here's the new single Pelican.

The Maccabees - Pelican

The new album, Given to the Wild is out January 9th.

Moving....

So because I've just moved flats and been busy i've completely neglected my little blog. And now I have moved I have no internet which makes it hard to blog too.

Anyway, a short blog, just to share some of the new music I am loving at the moment. Enjoy! x

The Pierces/Marcus Foster

So....my tickets arrived yesterday for The Pierces/Mark Foster gig that I'm going to next month in Brighton.
I completely forgot that I was going to be honest, so it was a nice surprise to find them when I got home. Anyway, getting excited has made me have both on shuffle on my iPod today and I thought i'd share some of their stuff!



The Pierces - Glorious



The Pierces - You'll Be Mine



The Pierces - We Are Stars

Oh and Kristen Stewart is in the new Marcus Foster video which is kinda awesome for him.



Marcus Foster - I Was Broken

Coat Love

So it's officially autumn (my favourite season - weird I know) and so I bought a new winter coat as last year's is now far too massive for me (hooray). I got this little beaute from Very. It's part of the Diana Vickers range and it's soooo good. It's belted and oversized, long and comes in a great camel colour.





Obviously I look nowhere near as good as Diana does in it....but it is still a keeper!

Stationery Whore

I don't know what it is about stationery but i've always loved it. Maybe it has something to do with my previous life of selling books and stationery to students....

Anyways, I was always that irritating kid at school that had a new pencil case every term and every pen and pencil under the sun. Even now i'm a notebook hoarder. I have so many knocking about.

So you can imagine my excitement when I came across Knock Knock the other day. I WANT....no NEED, everything.

Friday Playlist

Ok so I know i've completely neglected my blog in the last couple of months. Where i've been blogging and tweeting at work I just had a bit too much internet time and needed to put my laptop down for a bit.....but i'm back with a Friday playlist.

In a couple of weeks i'm going to Tenerife for a week with my bestests for what feels like the most deserved holiday ever!! Soooo today's playlist is all those songs I'll be listening to on the beach!

Darwin Deez - Radar Detector


DJ Fresh - Louder


Calvin Harris - Bounce

Wishlist #3

Another wishlist. I keep eyeing up things that I want for my holiday. But i'm doing the 30 Day Shred so I want to wait until that's done before buying anything....doesn't stop me from looking and wishing though.

Diana Vickers For Very

I discovered this this afternoon when I was at work, looking for tweeting content for the day. I swear my job sounds more cryptic everytime I describe it. Anyways, I kinda fell in love with this range but then at the same time was completely unimpressed.

Diana Vickers has always been a bit quirky, but never outrageous or anything like that. Quirky and cute, in the pop way I guess. It's not a surprise that she's done a range for Very. Like Fearne Cotton, she's a bit quirky and people love that.

Here's the pieces that I love:







Although it may be a little overpriced for what it is I think the prints and styles are ridiculously cute. Hopefully the quality would be good. The other pieces are just a bit uninspiring I guess. They include some wide leg jeans, a grey t-shirt and yellow corset top. I guess I just wonder why I would pay £18 quid for a grey t-shirt just because Diana Vickers is associated with it. Surely no one likes her that much?

Relaxed Tailoring

I'm completely in love with the relaxed tailoring look that's going on at the moment. I've always been a big fan of blazers and pussybow blouses, but this year the androgynous look is going to new levels and I love the girly tailored twist.

Friday Playlist

Happy Friday everyone! This weekend I'm going to my friend Rob's wedding. I'm very excited. He and his wife to be, Ali have been together since day one at university (5 years ago) and they are getting married tomorrow. Also very excited as i'll be seeing lots of uni pals who I haven't seen for a while. So....normally my friday playlist would consist of songs i'll be listening to this weekend, but as I'm likely to be hearing YMCA, My Heart Will Go On and other such crap I have done another type of playlist today.

I noticed this morning whilst flicking through my IPod that I have 6 (!!) songs titled 'Heartbreak(er)' on my IPod, I'm not too sure what this says about myself but hey-ho. So in tribute here they are...


MSTRKRFT - Heartbreaker


Will.I.Am - Heartbreaker


Metronomy - Heartbreaker


Mariah Carey - Heartbreaker


Kanye West - Welcome to Heartbreak



Magistrates - Heartbreak

Operator Please - Leave it Alone

Also, love this song from them too! 


Operator Please - Just A Song

Mac.

So for months now i've been after a new jacket. All my coats are big fat winter ones and I needed a mac! My mac hunt has gone on for ages now. I've ordered, sent back, tried on what feels like millions of macs and they've all been either too long, too short, had weird buttons, strange detailing, funny colour etc etc.....until now.

I ordered this Lipsy mac from Very (when I was ordering my Fearne Cotton dress, more on that later) and I love it. Normally I wouldn't go for something from Lipsy- i've never been a massive fan of their clothes but this mac is perfect.


It's actually a little more of a camel colour than it is here, but it's amazing! I would take a picture myself but my camera is still busted (hopefully getting a new one this week). So happy with my new mac!

However, i'm not so happy with my Fearne Cotton dress. The other day I blogged about the dress I bought from Fearne Cotton's Very range, which arrived today. It's a weird clingy material, which always worries me, but tried it on anyway and it wasn't clingy at all. It just kind of hung there, it was really odd. I can't tell whether it's too big for me or only suits skinny girls but it didn't look right at ALL. Return.

Fearne Cotton's Collection

Since the new year I've been being really good with my money, trying not to buy lots of new clothes and just re-wear what I already have, which is a lot!

The first thing that i've bought this year is a dress from Fearne Cotton's collection for Very. I'm in love with most of the pieces, but this dress is so uh-mazing that I had to buy it - hopefully it will arrive tomorrow! :)

Very - Fearne Cotton Tunic - £49

It's a beaute isn't it? I'm thinking that it will make a great day dress and teamed with some bright heels, will make a great going out look. Stay tuned this week to see what it ends up looking like! Here's some of the other gems I love from Fearne's collection:

Very - Fearne Cotton One Shoulder Metalic Dress- £69

Very - Fearne Cotton Peter Pan Blouse - £29


Very - Fearne Cotton Polka Dot Pleated Skirt - £25
No Doubt come pay day I'll end up buying most of that!

Cupcakes

So today I spent a couple hours making cupcakes. I haven't baked anything in ages and I used to love it sooo much, so with a quiet weekend I thought I'd make some!

I found a recipe for some Lemon cupcakes so decided to try those. Though when I went shopping for ingredients they didn't have any yellow food colouring so I have Pink, Lemon flavoured cupcakes.

Sorry for the crappy pictures - had to use my BB as my camera's dead.


Pre icing stage.


Post icing - YUM!


Again - YUM!

They tasted uh-mazing. Especially after I added some sprinkles.....all cakes need sprinkles! If you want to try them then you can find the recipe here. I just took out the poppyseeds! Enjoy.
