A DAY IN THE LIFE

A DAY IN THE LIFE

Hieeeee all you beautiful people, we're so sorry we haven't been blogging very much recently. It's partly because we've had assignments due in but also partly because we're not very good at organising our time! Anyways, we're back and we thought we would share our day with you (yesterday).

So yesterday we decided to have a little family outing with our housemates because that is one of the perks of living with 4 of your best friends!
The first thing we did was go to the piercing parlour because Abby is a sucker for a nice piercing (as you can see from her metal ear). She decided that she wanted to be brave and get an industrial/scaffolding piercing. It was gross to watch, but looks pretty darn cool! 

(If you have any questions about tattoos or piercings, do feel free to ask in the comments). 


After that we decided to do what we do best... Spend money that we don't have! This is literally one of our worst habits, but shopping is just so therapeutic after a stressful couple of weeks!





So finally, we decided to go on a little trip to the US of A to finish our day! Just kidding, we went for dinner at Buddies Diner in Northampton. It's set out all American-y and all the burgers have cool names like 'Frank Sinatra' and 'Tony Soprano'. Long-island ice teas were ordered as a homage to Carrie Bradshaw, it was SJP's 50th birthday after all! We played trivial pursuit until our food arrived and it was so nice. 



Aaaand that was our day!

We hope you enjoyed this little insight into our lives and happy Thursday!

We've taken a collective bunch of photos of some of the yummiest meals we've had this week. Now, we know it may appear that we're a rather healthy bunch, but we hate to admit that this is just week 1 of our diet (excusing the Prezzo - it was a pre-birthday treat!) so that's why these meals look all green and leafy! 




  




Just a little heads up to all those students out there who like to lunch like ladies, if you subscribe to Prezzo they send you some really good deals for the weekdays... some of these include 2 for 1 on pizzas, 30% off main meals and our favourite so far? A free bottle of Prosecco because it's Abby's birthday! We deffo recommend signing up because who doesn't love eating yummy food at cheap prices!?

Just a Chit Chat :)

We thought we'd use this post to have a bit of a chinwag about some of the latest celeb gossip!


Kim goes blonde!



We've seen all the comparisons of Kim's new hair... Malfoy, Legolas, Khaleesi, Boris Johnson... even an Afghan  hound! As funny as these are, we think people are being a little harsh... give it a few days and there will people all over the UK with this new style, guaranteed. In all honesty, we just can't make up minds, in some pictures appears yellow whilst in other it's white... all these photos and filters are playing havoc with our minds!! Kim can pull of anything so we have faith that she'll rock this new look... for how long, we're not too sure. We give it a month til she's back with her usual dark looks, we'd put money on this stunt just being to stir up a bit of media attention... who can blame her though? Her sisters are rocking it lately, maybe she's feeling the pressure. 


Leo & RiRi?!



Now this is shocking. Leo and Rihanna, seriously? Not only are we speechless, but if this is true, we'll also be a little bit heartbroken. This unexpected story has left us a little confused... we'd never put these two together, not in a million years. But then again, after seeing Wolf of Wall Street maybe they do belong together...they can holiday in Jamaica, take in the scenery, have some nice cocktails & do some hardcore drugs. We're joking of course...The silver lining? With 13 years between them we're still in with a chance! What's a 21 years between a fine arse man and us?


New Clique? 




Okay so it's quite obvious that Kendall Jenner is fast becoming the new 'IT' girl, she's pretty much everywhere right now!

We're not going to lie, we are a little bit (a lot) jealous of her new friendships with the likes of Jourdan Dunn, Cara Delevigne and, queen of all fashionista socialites, Alexa Chung. Maybe it's because we're somewhat protective over these British Beauties, but we're not sure that she's on the same level as them. Of course we lurrrve the Kardashians and we wish her all the best in her career, she is absolutely killing it at the moment, but there's something we're just not sure about.

Maybe it's just mad jealousy!



#ThanksZane



As you may (or may not) know, it was BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe's last ever radio show last night after 12 years of hosting the evening 7-9pm show. It was so touching to read all the tributes from major artists such as The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Arctic Monkeys, Mark Ronson and Biffy Clyro and it just goes to show how important Zane has been in British music. Although it may seem like he is only a radio DJ but his sheer passion and knowledge for music has been and continues to be an inspiration to many people and his efforts and involvement in BBC introducing has helped many artists break through.

I personally idolize Zane in a big way. His eclectic taste and complete excitement when it came to music was a pleasure to listen to. He introduced me to bands like Royal Blood, Peace and Catfish & The Bottlemen, all bands that I've gone on to love and for that I just want to say #thankszane.
In the past 12 years he really has become a music legend and he will be sorely missed by many people.

Stuart who?






No gossip here, but can we please just take a moment to appreciate what puberty has done.








What do you guys think to all this?! We'd love to get a bit of a juicy discussion going on any of these :)
