MY TRUE LOVE - Marilyn Monroe

I have always loved this woman Marilyn Monroe or as she was in these stunning photos Norma Jeane Baker. She to me is many of things, a strong woman who did not have an easy life but was determined to make something of herself. She wanted to be loved, she wanted to be a mother and she wanted to be normal like you and I. She dreamt of so many things and lots of people took her for granted and unfortunately in those days she did not get the proper care and health she really needed. Everybody has the own story to how she died, her death was a mystery but as true fan of Marilyn I am sure so many of you like myself believe one true reason as how she died. I have invested a lot of time into this wonderful lady's life. She was a star, a queen and will always be my idol. As some of you will possible know if you started following this blog in 2015 then you will know how much she means to me. I could go on and on about her, her style, her looks, her movies, her childhood and the rest of her life. But I bet the majority of you all will already know so much about her. In fact my favourite movie of Marilyn's happens to be 'Some Like It Hot' she was a sweetheart and it is such a funny, good hearted movie which I am sure you would have all seen, its a true classic! If you are someone who is wanting to watch a movie of Marilyn's then I would 100% recommend 'Some Like It Hot' watching it for the first time 2 years ago made me realise how much I adore her and how talented she truly was. Her voice is breathtakingly good. 

As a fan of Marilyn I soon become totally in awe of her and her photos. I wanted to know all about her life, research into the things I didn't know, I read up on her life and had my own idea on exactly what truly happened, watched documentaries and really fell in love with her intire photo collection and become so inspired by her photos when she was so much younger and just starting out at being a model. I could not get over at first she was originally a brunette and her natural beauty was just amazing. She really didn't have to change and dye her hair blonde to the point her hair kept falling out because she would bleach it. 

All she wanted was to be loved but she was by her fans, by the people who loved her.
She was our star, our angel, our girl and our favourite old hollywood star.

I recently came across the collection of photos above and I had not seen them in a long time and I knew I had to make a post dedicated to this beauty.

Instagram Catch Up

So today I wanted to show you my current Instagram feed and actually do what I like to call an Instagram Catch up and show you exactly what has been happening on my feed and what photo's have made my current feed. If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed recently that I have been posting rather a lot and this is due to the fact I have lots of things I have wanted to share with you and what better way to do it then on Instagram right? I have had lots of people saying to me how much they love what I post and this is just a great feeling and something so lovely for people to say. So many people have some really cool Insta feeds is just the best feeling and inside I smile and say to myself 'Yes Charlotte you go girl' and even my mum even says its great and she doesn't even have an account she just enjoys going on my phone and scrolling through. GUESS WHAT?! she even thought it would be a fabulous idea to mention about in an interview I had this week as I had to a 2 minute presentation on whatever I fancied so I brought in my SGT Pepper Vinyl by The Beatles and talked about my love of music, my vinyl collection which lead me on to discuss about how I love vintage clothing and even how I have a blog! They thought it was really interesting and how I had a blog.. you get so many people who think its so cool when you say 'oh I have a blog' it is that part of yourself which is diferent and people want to know all about it. 

Anyway, after that long ramble I wanted to share with you what I have been loving recently from the above pictures and perhaps a little selfie of myself. As you can tell from the photos I have been truly inpired by so many style inspiration posts from Tumblr and had to add them to my feed. I also have been loving the beautiful Kate Moss again. Now I did not go off her (how could you) I just had some time to realise how much I had missed her modelling photos when she in her youth and to be honest that has to be the same with Mick Jagger too. I honestly think he is one of the coolest men ever! and what is my feed without a photo of myself and my queen Marilyn and the most dreamiest picture of Paris I have seen which I found on the Instagram page 'The Lovers and Drifters Club'.

I hope you enjoyed this post and didn't find it too dull. I love writing these kind of posts and I am so close to 1,900 followers on Instagram too! That is ridiciously crazy and I want to thank everyone of you for following me on Insta and my blog. You have no idea how much it means to me and how happy I feel that people enjoy reading what I post.

Reflecting on July

How is it July already.. this year is going way too fast! I cannot honestly believe it. So this month has ups and down's. I am not going into detail exactly as it is personal and I do not want to mention it on social media and my blog. However, hopefully things will be getting better once again.

This post will be a lot shorter than how I original had planned it but sometimes thats how things go and you have be prepared to change things. The blog will be be updated a lot more regularly and I have already quite a few diferent posts ready for you all which I am sure you will love. The other day I was invited to download an app call slack - it was to do with a blogger site, a bit like blog lovin' where you can share your posts and connect with diferent bloggers however this was so much more complicated and decided to delete the account. It seemed to have great reviews which was attracted me to it and the app was free of course but when I had a look in to it I was not keen and decided just to stick with blog lovin'. I honestly believe blog lovin' is the best thing to get when you are a new blogger. It is the greatest thing ever and everyone recomends it. It is the best way to keep up to date on your favourite bloggers and see what they are posting and works great for you when you post blog posts. It is 100% worth getting the app! 

I have just been to see Dunkirk and my gosh it was amazing! I was speechless, it was the best movie I have ever seen! You must go and see it.

Hope you have had a good month and leave comments below as to what postitive quotes you love?

I am hoping next month will be better that is for sure! Keep them fingers crossed for me.

A Fashion Love Affair

I do not know how many times I am drawn to this t shirt I just love it and you know what I have been going on about it for a long time (well since I bought it) but as you may know by now or perhaps have realised how much I love The Beatles. I honestly feel like its become a staple to my current wardrobe at the moment and as soon as the darker nights start drawing in and the chilly mornings arise I will miss wearing this t shirt rather a lot. I suppose you could get away with it during the Auturmn months but to be quite frank with you I will be starting to wear cute little jumpers and shirts again. It is the most loveliest t shirt I have worn apart from my BOWIE one I swear its like a love affair. Its like an old discovery and oh my dear I love it. Yes it can be a simple look but I love simple looks sometimes, they still can look super cool and still make you feel fabulous. So this t shirt was from Mango and it has to be one of my favourite purchases of my adult life so far. It has to be the perfect combination with MOM jeans or even high waisted and of course the added extra chocker. I love the peachy, pretty chockers. I am not the greatest fan of the black ones, I would rather pick up a peachy pink than all black. 

Now the next little number has to be my all time favourite bomber jacket which I bought last year from Zara and it is my absolute favourite jacket to wear when its chilly and even when its Summer and the weather isn't hot. I would call it the casual Saturday vibe but yes I love it so much.

The greatest thing I love about well is the colour and how I love the zip effect on the sleeves. I actually wore my BOWIE t shirt but I did not take a little snap of this (I do apologise of course) and please forgive me but I love this kind of weather when yes its supposed to be summer but the weather is not great and you can get away with these kind of jackets or a leather jacket and then to brighten the outfit up a bit add one of your bright summery pink lipsticks by MAC. Now that is what I am talking about!!

Lets Talk About Imagine The Vinyl By John Lennon

So today It was a happy vinyl day for myself and with it being the first vinyl of 2016 of course I had to buy 'Imagine' by John Lennon. I had previously seen the vinyl in HMV (yes that is why I buy all of my records) in December last year and I could not buy it purely because Christmas was coming up and I was not going to buy anything like that until I got paid in January. It is nearly my birthday and even though I should of waited I did not. 

1. I have not been paid yet.
2. I love buying vinyls.
3. I just can't help myself.

I will see I did have enough money to last time till the end of the month so it was absolutely fine.
After being in this week I had narrowed it down to two, Imagine and Rubber Soul which is by The Beatles. I still have not finished collecting them all yet, but when I saw there were two Rubber Soul records and one Imagine I thought 'that is it, I must have Imagine! That was that, my mind was made up and I went away with it. 

I only new two songs on the record, I bet you can guess which ones? Imagine of course and Jealous Guy. They are two of my favourite John Lennon songs. I listened to the first side about 4 times, over and over again. That is what I loved about listening to CD's you could follow the words and just keep playing that side over and over until you lost the world to live. Now I do the same with my vinyls, 
even when I just play one of my mums old LP's. Before I got my record player I played the same songs all the time on my iPhone, actually I tell a lie, I still do!

It is that kind of vinyl you can play all the time and you will not get bored, I mean how can you not get bored of John Lennon's voice. Gosh he is amazing. Defintely was 100% worth it and I am so pleased to finally have that as part of my vinyl collection. Happy Charlotte! 

Please don't forget to check me out on blog lovin, it is probably the best place to catch up with my posts!

Imagine you were... John Lennon


You had a vintage car.

You were John Lennon.

You had an iMac.

Today's post really is a chatty one. I guess it came about the other day and Its been in the back of my mind for a while but I thought 'its okay, It will go away' and it really has not. To be honest, it did not matter to me because I was loving my 'happy place' and people seemed to be loving it too. Why am I rambling on about nothing? Yes that is probably what your thinking.

I was going to stop using blogger. No I was not going to stop blogging but I was going to get Wordpress, well I actually did. I was in the process of setting my account up and then I thought I'm going to have start all over again. I've put so much effort and time with my posts and I did not want to have to try and re write them again. I just wanted a new design for my blog, when I created 'Lottie's Lott' I was searching on blogger for the perfect blog design, I wish there was better ones but people create there own if they are lucky enough to do it for a living. I managed to find one that I thought was right for my blog and I still love it and always will. I guess I just wanted something a little more 'ooh la la' and it grabs peoples attention.

I'd prefer my blog to be like a proper website name  such as now that would be good. Its a dream that I have and I would love to get there. One day! You never know what could happen I guess, but those sort of things don't seem to happen to me. If you go from just being a YouTuber to a blogger of course you have the money, the time and people to help you design something that people are going to love. People like that have more of an advantage and to people like myself who just started from scratch. I also think that beauty and fashion bloggers have more of an advantage and nowadays there are so many! I have a huge passion for different types of bloggers like vintage, travel, food etc. Do not get me wrong I love fashion and beauty bloggers, you can't beat Zoe Sugg, Tanya Burr and Louise Pentland I believe without those girls blogging in general would not be where it is today.

I will be back soon with a Vintage post which I know you will love!

My Week In Photos

Welcome back guys! It has been over a week since I last blogged. To be fair I have had two posts completed and I chose to wait till this post had been done. I think it was because January is the month of my birthday and last Sunday (24th) I turned 24! Can you believe it? 24 I thought I would feel different but I do not and no at first I thought 'Oh my gosh, I am getting old' which I am but I guess it could be worse and I might aswell enjoy being 24.

I have not done one of these posts in a while but I am going to do a 'My week in Photos' I thought this would be a good post to do and you can get to see what I got up to do besides work. I have also seen other bloggers doing these kind of posts which inspired me to do my own.

I began my week as I usually do beginning going to work and of course before I started this meant one thing. Suits. Suits and Suits. I absolutely love suits and I cannot wait till season 4 is released on Netflix UK.

I always go on my Instagram as the majority of you know how much I love it and I post daily too.
In my latest blog posts from last year I talked about how much my feed has changed and last week I found some amazing pictures of Kate Moss, Leonardo Dicaprio, old fashion cars and lots more. (I will leave a link at the end of my post if you want to check it out) Amazingly enough I reached an unbelievable 1200 followers which is just so unreal and cannot believe that there are so many of you that love my Instagram! As always, thank you ever so much! I love you all and I never in a million years expected it, I just love posting retro pictures.

Here are just a few of the pictures I now have on my Instagram and the two at the top of my post.

On Wednesday 20th January I arranged to go out with my friends for a meal to celebrate my birthday.
It was such a cold night and thankfully I tried to keep warm by wearing tights underneath my black super high wasted jeans from Topshop, my gorgeous leopard print blouse and Zara leather jacket.

That was pretty much my week, I saw family on Thursday and Friday and then waited till Sunday where I spent my birthday at the coast. Whitby is a lovely place!

Hey everyone! Welcome back or shall I say I'm back! Yes its been a few weeks since I've sat down and blogged. The last couple of weeks have been so busy at work and I haven't had chance to sit down and think of anything I wanted to blog. Its a good job I didn't upload all my posts I did during my week off in February! Gosh that seems like ages ago.. I actually have one post to go up then I have to sit and get back to blogging when I possibly can. I really fancied a catch up, another chatty post I guess. I have been loving posts like this. My #MondayMotivation Post I uploaded a few weeks ago has done amazingly well and I honestly cannot believe it. It's pretty crazy and even my chatty post too. I love you guys. Thank you so much! Did I tell you I've been absolutely had the best time scrolling through Twitter and Instagram looking at 90's images and no not just of Kate Moss either.
I've also been loving fashion pictures and of course I couldn't resist getting a photo of #JaneBirkin and #TheSpiceGirls. Leave comments below if you loved them just as much as I did! 

How has your week been? Its been a funny old week because I had booked to get my haircut done on Wednesday and 2 hours before I had to cancel my appointment because it was heavy snow and there was no way I could of got the bus. It was a nightmare. Anyway, I've managed to re book and I cannot wait till Friday. I'm going to feel like a new woman. I have not had a hair cut since November last year and I'm having my highlights put back in so yes an Instagram selfie will probably happen! 
Don't get me wrong, I love being busy at work. I mean if you are not the hours go by so slow its unbelievable but its nice when I get to have some spare time to blog when I'm not being a happy receptionist to our patients at the surgery. 

The amount of times I've been to the doctors or the dentists and the receptionist's look so miserable. They give the impression that they don't want to be there and I'm thinking 'its not hard to put a smile on your face' even if your having a bad day or you have personal issues. What a lovely welcome that would be when the staff don't look happy. Yes a doctor and a dentist aren't the best of places to be, people are sick at the doctors and there's a reason why they are there and the same when you go to get your teeth checked out but please 'try and make a smile'.

1. It makes the patients feel welcomed.
2. It can brighten people's days.
3. It can cheer yourself up or your colleagues.
4. Patients will feel like you want to be there.

Some patients can be so rude to you, it can be unbelievable to think that a human being would speak you to like that when the majority of us wouldn't even dream of speaking to someone like that. I've had it recently at work and even in retail. I'm sure a lot of people would have experienced it. I am right?

The saddest thing about being a receptionist at the doctors surgery is you see so many different types of people. People who are generally ill and come to the surgery just to get better and then you get the ones who come in every week sometimes a few times who really aren't that ill at all!

I've just finished my 6 month training at work and got the paperwork signed off, will probably take me a year at least to learn everything as there is so much to process. One of the things I am good at is handling people who can be rude to you. Never show them how you feel, always keep your feelings inside you. I know that can be hard. It really is not easy!

Anyway, why am I talking about work..

At the beginning of the post I talked about some pictures that I had seen on Twitter and Instagram which I have been loving and here they are!

What do you all think? I love them. The style, just everything about it. Oh and Leo in the 90's.
The world went crazy last week when he finally after 20 years won his first Oscar. I was so excited for him, he deserved it so much. He is a wonderful actor and was beyond happy for him.

I hope you all enjoyed my #ReflectingOnFebruary post, I have been enjoying doing these kind of posts. I suppose they give me targets on things I can make better and achieve for example like my blogging.

I hope you all have a lovely week and will be back very soon!
