August Favourites - Love Me Do






Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
Yeah, they were all yellow

I love listening to song lyrics as I write my blog posts, I find it so much more inspiring than I would if I was not listening to my music. It helps me think and I feel in my own little world when I have my headphones on. As I write this post I have the song 'Yellow' by Coldplay'. Don't you just love them? I certainly do thats for sure. So today I wanted to talk about my monthly favourites and I have brought some recent products that I really want to try out but I want to give them a few weeks at least before I mention them in a blog post so I thought I would let you know what they are like in September's montly favourites. Sorry guys you will just have to wait for that.. anyway I have been loving the lipstick 'Snob' by Mac Cosmetics it is a light pink that has a satin finish. I have been wearing a lot recently (probably because the sun has been out again) and I truly have missed it. It is a lipstick that I have had for 2 years now but only seem to wear it in Spring and Summer time as it s a very light pink shade. I actually am wearing it in the pictures above but it was something I found whilst hunting around in my makeup bag wondering what lipstick to wear and came across this lipstick and thought 'ooh this will be nice to wear, I have not worn it in a while' and I totally forgot about it. It really is such a pretty shade and because I am fair it really goes well. It has a velvet sheen satin finish to it and that is why I love it. I love matte liptsicks but sometimes its nice to wear a lipstick that has a lovely sheen to it and this one certainly does.




This little outfit inspiration of mine is something that I love doing in my blog posts and love having a few of these in my montly favourites. I recently posted the middle photo on Instagram the other day and said how much I loved wearing my beatles tshirt and somehow the whole outfit just came together when I added my Mango sunglasses and sandals from Topshop.. I love them, don't you?
I love taking pictures of myself when I am wearing a nice outfit and I feel good in what I am wearing but somtimes I feel like not wanting to take outfit pictures and should really appreciate the fact that I have nice clothes and should not feel the end to post a picture of myself. People constantly take outfit pictures of themselves these days and to be honest I have felt like doing that and I like to look back at that them and of course I love to add them to a post but why does your life have to be taken over on social media and why do you feel the need to tell everyone that you look good? That is what I feel on occasions and this is why on some days I do not get my phone out and take a little selfie.


I love the photo of the Olsen sisters don't you and I came across this wonderful photo on Instagram about David Bowie and had too mention it in my blog. It speaks for itself I think.

I hope you enjoyed this montly favourites post, as I finish this its currently 10:45pm on a Saturday night. I am feeling tired now and my bed is calling which I feel is a good time to stop don't you?

Reflecting on August - The Happiest Of Times








In 2 weeks as I am writing this it will be September! This year has gone by so fast I can hardly believe that Summer is pretty much over although it has been great to get some gorgeous weather recently as before you know it, we will be wearing boots, coats and jumpers. This month has been filled with the happiest and I really wanted to document that. I am really excited to be starting my new job in the beginning of September - it will be great to be working back at a doctors surgery doing what I do the best and being the best Medical Receptionist I can be to all the patients. It will be a new practice, new team, new ways of doing things and the people just seem so lovely and my manager just seems the best. I am also pleased that it is full time and I only get to work one evening which is a bonus as at my old practice I worked for I did three. I suppose a saturday morning is not too bad either right? This time around I will be based at both surguries instead of just the one but there are only two in the practice so it is so much more smaller than Priory but with so much more opportunity than just being a receptionist. I honestly cannot wait to start and only the other week I was invited to meet some of the team at the Fulford practice and I had already met one of the girls so it was great - all different ages too! I somehow already feel part of the team already and I will have a new uniform of wearing navy which is not the easist of things to buy but I suppose its a change from wearing black and you can wear a white blouse/shirt which actually look nice with the colour navy blue.

MY BERLIN PHOTOS

At the end of April some of you might have already know that I went to Berlin with my friend Jess for a little trip away for her 21st Birthday and at the beginning of the month I asked if she would send me some more photos that she had taken of either me or the two of us as I did not have them. Anyway she send me so many and I wanted to share a few with you, I actually did post a few on Instagram which you guys seemed to love and they were defintely some my favourite ones.










I absolutely loved these ones and I totally forgot about them so it was so nice to look back at them and I defintely wanted to share these with you. We also just went on a girly day out to Leeds which was great and had such the best day, I bought a couple of things from Lush which I really want to put in a favourites post or perhaps do a little short skin care routine. We had a lovely time looking round Leeds and had lunch in our favourite restaurant Wagamama's. I loved the Leeds Trinity Centre one I would highly reccommend it! Here's a few snaps we took.




   


Thank you so much as always for taking the time out to read my blog, it really means the world to me and I love you all.

Old Hollywood Glamour | Bacall and Bogie


I am absolutely loving being back blogging regularly again and even though I am a little under the weather this week I have come up with a great post for you. If you love the most famous couple of Old Hollywood, Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart better know together as Bogie and Bogart as much as I do then this post will brighten up your day! Back when I began my blog in February this year I did a blog post on Lauren but I could not resist to do a 'Look Book' of all her and Bogie's pictures together. 

Here are a few of my all time favourite pictures of them. I love the 1950's era, the men and women dressed perfectly. The women in gorgeous dresses and the men in suits. 








I hope you enjoyed this short photo diary and as always these photos were sourced on Tumblr.

True Love











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.
