Company Casting Call with River Island

I haven't really entered a competition in a while, I always come across these fun looking ones but never actually bother to enter them, simply because I can be a bit of a lazy bum and mainly the standard reason of; 'AS IF i'm gonna win that'! But after reading the latest issue of Company magazine and seeing that they had teamed up with River Island for the annual Company Casting Call competition, I thought it was too good to miss. So thanks to my dear boyfriend shoving the competiton page in my face, I finally entered my first competition of 2012!
The finalists of the competition are narrowed down to the 12 girls with the most 'Likes' on their picture, and then goes on to the Company magazine judges who decide on the final 6 who will appear in May's issue.
A LOT of girls have entered as you can imagine but I thought I might as well give it a shot and see what happens.. So please 'LIKE' 'LIKE' 'LIKE' on the link below!!

Fingers crossed, thank yooou xx

Summer Vibes

So with the weather being so beautifully sunny this weekend I could'nt help myself but get excited about summer (yes I know its about half a year away but what else am I supposed to think about during this boring month), and what better band to listen to on a sunny day than Best Coast. I cannot thank my friend enough for introducing me to this band, I seriously can't get enough of them! If you're into a laid back 60's kind of vibe then you'll LOVE this band, perfect for when you just want to chill out or just want some easy listening on a lovely summer's day.
'Boyfriend' which I have linked above is one of my favrouites, along with 'Crazy for You' and 'Each And Every Day'.
Have a listen!

I want candy!

One of the only things that seems to get me through the dull and boring months of January and February is the thought that soon I can re-vamp my wardrobe ready for Spring! Even though it hasn't been as cold as last winter, I've had enough of suffocating myself in chunky knits and wooly scarves and just throwing on hooodies because its just the easiest thing when its blowing a gale outside!
So I think it's time to bring in the lighter clothes and a serious splash of colour, and what better way to do this than with Spring/Summer's Ultragirl trend! I'm not at all a girly girl, you won't see me walking around wearing prim and pretty dresses full of pleats and frills but when it comes to the pastel shades i'm a big fan. There are so many different colours to choose from, all the way from a sherbert yellow to soft lime and to one of my favrouites, a sugary pink. And Asos prove my point exactly with a whole range of colours in their Candy section, I found myself spoilt for choice with pages of jeans, high waisted shorts, skinny belts and cute headbands in a whole variety of Pastel shades!

But now the problem is, which colour skinny jean do I go for? I'm loving the Asos candy blue jean at the moment :)
