I just got back last night after seeing my family in Italy for a few days, here are a few pictures I took whilst I was there. I went to Scafati, which is a town in the Campania region in Southern Italy.
Prior to booking to go I was supposed to go for over a week; but having needed to get my passport renewed total mess up etc etc and ending up flying on my own, I went for 4 days. Which was a shame as I don't see my family there regularly, but it was enjoyable finally getting there.
On the first day I went to Vietri or 'Vietri Sul Mare', known for the pottery, vases etc that are used around the Amalfi Coast (pictured above). Also ending up buying lots of pottery and subsequently having to buy another bag to go home with haha...
Next we went to the Amalfi. We got a train to Salerno, and then got a 40 minute boat there. Scorching hot also with it being temperatures around 40 degrees celsius. It was a lovely day although, as me being myself hating the sun the weather didn't really affect my tan..
On Sunday I went to Monte Terminio, which is a lovely place to go with your family, it isn't very touristic mainly Italian families going for a Sunday barbecue. It has beautiful views, and you can go horse riding on the mountains. I found there was also a beautiful range of butterflies, which I tried to take pictures of but also that was very hard haha.
And on the last day I went to Pompeii, I didn't take many pictures (only on my phone) so hence there being no photos.
I had a lovely holiday but I'm glad I'm home as I find going abroad makes me miss everything in England.
(I used for taking the photos Lumix G2, or Canon EOS 650D)
How was your weekend?

I will never for the life of me be able to take 'outfit shots', without being too 'posed' and end up looking ridiculous or try and take a 'casual' one in my mirror and equally look ridiculous. Although neither two apply, mainly being the fact I had no effort to turn a light on so you could actually see the outfit better, I'm going to proceed to post it although showing the lack of patience I have..
Anyway I wore this today, I was going to wear a fitted black pencil skirt because I thought the contrast of the dark blue pattern in my top would look good, nevertheless I counted against it and I think I have this thing where I can deter from anything I think first looks good and end up looking like I've just been dragged through a charity shop, hey ho I like this skirt; I got it for my christening when I was about 10 and never threw it away for the 'sentimental' value, although it still fits me and now you have an image of a fat child wearing this skirt, although you probably didn't have an image of me wearing the skirt as a fat child but you probably did so after I wrote that, well if not that was completely pointless, and furthermore pointless as I have the skill where I can carry on talking/typing about equally nothing.
I liked my makeup today, I tried out the 'Real Techniques' brushes I bought on Monday and they're truly immense but I need to get my eyebrows threaded so no there won't be a photo of my makeup today (not that you'd really want it or it'd make any real difference to your lives haha).

Sleeveless Blouse- Ralph Lauren
Leather Jacket- All Saints
Skirt- Gap

I also wore a twist scarf from American Apparel, which I think was a limited edition design as I can't find it on their web store to show you, its black and gold and I like it and I think they are a great thing to wear to finish off an outfit.

Also I re-read Socrates Adams- Everything's Fine, today. I completely love this book, and I need a new book to read, so do you have any suggestions?
Whilst reading this on the tram home also I started choking on a coconut which was an experience as many lovely elderly ladies looked at me like it wasn't a natural thing to happen hm.......

Also this is just a photo of some street art I saw today, I really like it. It was just on Dantzic Street by The Printworks, which if you didn't know is kind of entertainment venue, they usually have live bands in the centre in the weekend and a some really nice eateries, The Odeon and there is also a 'Virgin Active' gym there too. Originally until the late 80's it was a printing press hence the name 'Printworks', but in the late 90's became what it is today.

It's really sunny where I live, and I'm having a nice day; so I hope you're all having a nice day too! :)

My views on fashion at the moment, quite contrary as most of the fashion I see around is the '14 year old hipster look' i.e dip dyed hair, creepers, bands tops etc almost bringing grunge back?
These are a few images I've seen floating around the internet which I've loved, I love the decadent look of almost untamed 'careless', with messy hair thats almost not messy, trying hard but not trying hard to look good. The mix of pale mixes that almost sit on the skin, with a dewy finish create this mystical enclosure, well thats what fashion is..made to be unfashionable. But I love all the textures I've been seeing, out there but just enough..if that makes any comprehensible sense...haha

What are you favourite 'trends' or even looks at the moment?
