Christmas presents I want right now!

I went shopping with my mum the other day, just in the small town where my Grandma lives, not amazing shops but hey it's life, and I got two new things from my mum. She's took them off me though, and vowed them the curse of christmas presents. The one thing I hate about shopping near christmas, seeing something you need then having to wait until christmas at least to get it! :/

But here they are, they are both from Peacocks, not the most amazing shop but has some good stuff now and then. :)

Chiffon Style Skirt - £12
Looks absolutely gorgeous colour wise & the
pattern is real nice when you view it for reals.

Nom nom new boots!
They're gonna look great
with the skirt & stuff! - £25

That's all I got, but there's plenty more times where we will be going out to bigger shopping places (eg. Westfield's) and properly shopping. Also I chose the free film instead of a £30 trip for our christmas school trip, so I've got £30 to buy something with to, this'll probably be for our non-uniform day coming up as well, I need some chino's!

What have you got your eyes on for Christmas (or earlier!)?

But tonight, I'm gonna fly..

First of all, thankyou. Second, I'm sorry..
Thankyou to the new followers I have had recently, even though I've not been here for a month, you still felt a need to follow me & you wont regret that decision, thankyou very much :)
Secondly, to the people who were already following me, I'm sorry I've not been on in around a month. I've had a lot going on in my life, but I feel this will keep me happy & that by not going on this to blog about passions as such kept one of the happy things in my life away from me. And I'm glad I'm back.

So I'll quickly skim through my month & why I haven't appeared to blog. GCSE's exams, new puppy, basically about all my friends rejecting me (or it slightly felt like that), got a main part as Susan in the musical version of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe with my drama group & foolishly on top of that agreed to be involved in my schools winter drama performance. All of this has kept me pretty pre-occupied, but I have been thinking about this blog. I really have.

Rants aside. Lets talk about good stuff!
Christmas. All the adverts are coming on now, its certainly getting cold & frozen & I've still not gained an inch towards a better wardrobe. But I can dream.
Mostly all I want for christmas is money, to save up for the beauty that is either a Nikon d5000 or d3000.
nikon d5000

nikon d3000
If you know anything about these two cameras which one do you think I should get? Is it worth that extra money for d5000? That's the one I wanted originally anyway..

And here's some other cool extra stuff I want!
Nail Polish in Chocolate, e.l.f  - £1.50
Nail Polish in NEW Mango Madness, e.l.f - £1.50
I really need a new foundation brush, e.l.f - £1.50
Natural-looking false lashes, e.l.f - £1.50
17 Hide & Chic foundation in Soft Ivory
Foolishly got it in a shade too dark when I was in a rush
& it looks extremely wrong. Need a new one!
Yeah, this is basically make-up. But I never trust people in the hands of my clothes buying responsibility unless I'm with them. So I never ask for items for christmas cause it can easily go wrong, I just buy it with the money.

Obviously you know what my question is to be now, what do you want for christmas?

Halloween Holidays!

This first term at school has gone so fast. I can't even keep track but it's nice to have a break. I'm going away for most of this week, but I have my blackberry so I can do updates and blogs from there.

I'm sorry about the web cam exposure. The colours aren't shown very well on here!:(
Plain chocolate brown vest top from New Look - £3.99
Woollen knitted mittens from Peacocks - £5

There's high streets where we're going though, so I have of course I have a wish list for the week away:

#1. Brogue's on heels. My gosh I so wish for some of these.
#2. I wish for this Knitted Fairisle Dress I saw in New Look the other day.
#3. I couldn't care what colour, I wish for some flat brogues<3
#4. I apologise if you think this a slightly rauchy picture, haha.
I wish for some variate patterned tights. 
#5. I wish for some lovely lacy shorts that are cute and stuff :')
#6. I wish for a cute vintage ring to start off my collection.
I don't own ANY rings & I would like to start wearing them
I think they look awesome, I just don't know if they suit me.
I think that's about all. I can't think of anything else at the moment my mum stole my list to look at, haha. But I will try and sneak in a little blog tomorrow before we set off even though I can probably blog on holiday!

Until next time darlings!

LOTD: Zara

LOTD: Zara
LOTD: Zara by ffairytales featuring zara dresses

The first of my label of the day collection! Today: Zara! I love their range at the moment, I adore vintage!

I won't be doing them everyday, I don't have the time, but I will make them for days, etc. You get what I mean:)

New Look: NEW IN

I'm not normally a fan of New Look, but seeing some of their recent items that they've put in at the moment, makes me think I might have a quick pop down soon.. 

Love this parka! Great colour & detail..
These are an awesome must have for winter,
overall these would be great with opaque tights
or maybe I'm thinking a tomboyish edge with army boots!
Love the embellishment on this vintage style dress!
Great colour and would make a statement with either
some nude or black heels.

What do YOU think of these items? Would you swing the New Look way or do you love the brand already? I'm not a major fan but these 3 items are actually quite tasteful! love you all,

Close your eyes and trust it, just trust it..

Trying to actually set my blog up has been crazy. I'm currently faultering between two blog addresses. I'm on "haystacksandloveshacks.teakandi.com" but cannot warm to WordPress, and then figured out I already have this blogger account. So I've tried it on this for a little bit, we'll see how things go!

Also, just so I'm at least connected and won't lose my followers..
Follow my blog with bloglovin

I'm going to start blogging now properly anyway, and things should fall into place!
Hope to hear from some fellow bloggers!
