Yes, it has been a very long time since I last posted, but I thought I'd try and get back into it since I was rather fond of it :) ..and what better time than CHRISTMAS. I you haven't already guessed, I love Christmas. It's just so cute, the pretty decorations, presents, films, and the time that it is acceptable to eat loads of yummy food.

Surprisingly I have not yet opened my advent calendar.. strange I know. But it just doesn't feel like it should be Christmas - 2012 has gone ridiculously fast. I'm trying to get into the spirit though, as I do love it. In my room I have some cute bunting on my curtains with little Christmas hats, a little Christmas tree and sparkly reindeers! :O

Topman jumper, £38
Some of my favourite things this Christmas so far are baking cute treats like my Christmas cupcakes, sparkly Christmas nails, and CHRISTMAS JUMPERS. I have to admit I went out and bought one, and as soon as it was the 1st of December BAM it was on.
This is me rocking my Christmas jumper.. and yes it is from Topman. I just found that the guys jumpers were nicer.. so I bought it. yolo.

From the beauty side as I said, I'm loving sparkly nails. At the moment, I'm thinking having them all sparkly may be a little early, so I'm tending to paint them all a colour then having the 4th finger sparkly. So far I've had red nails, with sparkly red, and right now I'm wearing nude nails, with 'disco' coloured sparkles. Barry m are great for nail varnishes, that's where the red sparkly nail varnish is from, and I got my disco sparkles from rimmel london (it's called disco ball) - with this one you definitely need a something underneath as it is not an all over sparkle. I'm wearing it with another rimmel london nail varnish in the colour caramel cupcake - which is nude, and the name is so cute. They are each only around £2.99 and definitely worth it!

Anyway, this blog post has been a bit all over the shop but I'm just getting back into it. Hope you enjoyed reading :) and i'll be back soon!

I swear alcohol is the devil..


It's been a while, this weekend I went out.. the place I went is terrible so yes we did have some drinks to try and make it better. It did make it ok, but it was soooo cold. I would have preffered to stay in and watch some films with my friends.

Anyway.. the next morning. I thought I felt ok, and had gotten away with a hangover. BUT - as time went on, I knew this was not the case. I had some breakfast (I had a craving for meat.. so I knew bacon was for me), this did not make me feel any better. So I got into my loungy clothes, grabbed my duvet and watched tv. It's now monday, I drank Saturday, I'm in college.. I swear I'm still hungover. This isn't fun.

WHYYY does alcohol trick you by letting you think you're having fun, then BOOM next morning urrrrgh. I also woke up with a massive bruise and swollen foot, how this happened I can not remember. Although I think the bruise may have been from some bumper cars, the foot though is unexplainable.

Anyway.. I can't write anymore, this has taken so much energy already. If you've got any funny drunken stories, or have had any painful memories of alcohol then comment below :)

This week - back to college.. back to no social life, and discovering some really great skin care products.


This is my first post for almost a week, that would be because I've been sucked back into college life. I'm in my second year studying A2 psychology, law and geography.. So you can imagine, it's a lot of work. Within my first three days, I have already been set three pieces of work - which includes a huge essay. Oh the joys.

So yeah, I now have like NO social life :'( I go to college five days a week.. but lots of those are half days (bonus) - so that's one decent thing. Then I work all day Saturday, so I have Sunday to rest. And that is my week complete. There just aren't enough hours in the day!

But in those few spare moments I bought some new skincare products, from 'Origins' range. I have been using them for a few days and i'm already noticing a difference.. I'm going to make a post about the products soon, so hopefully you'll read it and find it useful if you want perfect skin :))

Mainstream.. so what. I love my new vans!


Yes.. I finally gave in to temptation and bought some vans. I was trying to avoid them for as long as I could as they are pretty expensive for a trainer. I was going to buy some more Toms.. which are the comfiest shoes EVERR,. Seriously if you don't own a pair, buy some! You must have at least one pair in your wardrobe, and when you buy a pair they give a pair to an african child who needs shoes or something, which is pretty cute, but I already have two pairs and I saw a colour in the vans that I just fell in love with. I didn't think they would be very comfy, but they feel so spongy! The only thing is they are a bit small :| I'm normally size 5 (UK size) pretty much everywhere, however they were huge. So I just bought a size 4 :) Yes my toes may get a little crushed.. but at least they'll look good. PAIN IS FASHION. 

These are the beauts..

Everyone says they are 'too mainstream' and everyone seems to moan about that, but I don't understand why these people do not understand that they are popular because THEY ARE NICE. Recently everybody wants to be 'hipster', which means hating everything mainstream.. yet being hipster is now one of the most mainstream things.. ironic hmm? Yes, I think so..

I don't mind hipsters at all, I just think it's stupid to suddenly dislike something because other people like it. Everybody can't be individual, it just wouldn't work. 

This was a kind of different post, sorry if it was a little rant.. but I think that's why blogs are good. You can share your opinion, and hopefully some people will enjoy reading it :)

Bowling, McDonalds, and Pilates.. what a day.

Hellooo again.

I know what you're thinking.. back so soon, eh? ;) Well I just have so much to say..

I thought I would share my day with you, it's one of my last free days before I go back to college. I met a couple of friends and we went.. BOWLING! I have to admit; I forgot how fun it could be. I came second the first came and drew in first place for the second game. BOOM. Ooh and how can I forget, we got to wear the gorgeous bowling shoes :') bonus! 

Today was also the first time I have driven through a drive-thru! :) It was very exciting for all of us.. not going to lie. McDonald's should feel honored.

This evening, trying to even out my bad food intake, I went to two new exercise classes - zumba toning, and body balance. Body balance was so good, it is a mixture of thai chi, yoga and pilates. I STRONGLY advise you get yourself to the next class wherever you are, it builds flexibility and strength and leaves you feeling centered and calm.. it really did. So opinion on body balance.. I love it, if there are any exercise classes that anyone loves, please comment and i'd love to try it :)

Hello.. come get to know me.

Hello there.

Well, how to start.. I suppose I should introduce myself. I'm Phoebe (I have about a million nicknames, maybe i'll share them one time) and I'm 17, I am about to go into my second year of college. Then.. no idea. Job, uni, be a bum - who knows? This is my first blog - so i'm not too sure what i'm doing, I just always thought it looked fun. I don't know how often I will blog, either create a routine, or just write when I need/want to :) I haven't really got a theme for my blog.. hence the name 'everything'. That title may change next week, next year or never. 

I think this could be a good way to say interesting things I have learnt, share my opinions and just generally blab. Hopefully some people will read it, and bonus maybe even like it.. if not I guess it's just a way for me to share.

I thought I would do kind of a short blog, not that I know if this is short.. I don't want to overstay my welcome. So yeah, I'm sure you'll be hearing more from me shortly.
