Inside this place is warm Outside it starts to pour

Dunnes dress | Penneys jumper | Dunnes over the knee socks | no idea where my hats from | School tights and shoes
^^^ my mam took this photo above it is not mine ^^^
Lyrics : Sweater Weather by The Neighbourhood 

I'm slowly adjusting to my mam's camera and I feel as if I've became fluent in using the self timer. I'm still awful at focusing and brightness though which is why the outfit photos are not near brilliant. Every time someone walks by the mincemeat mix you're suppose to stir it except there's a Christmas cake mix beside it so I end up getting distracted and begin to nibble. In the end, Mam took out the tub of glacĂ© cherries and we dipped one each in icing sugar and poked a cocktail stick into them creating lollipop lookalikes. 

My outfit today reminds me of festivals which is solely down to the hat. Last year I wore the same jumper over a similar collared dress so I decided to put together a similar outfit alternatively using the navy blue dress. My hands felt like ice cubes whilst I was taking these photos although my legs most definitely didn't since I was wearing my beloved over the knee socks that unexpectedly went way further above the knee than I'd imagined oops. None the less, I still love the pattern and glitteriness and they're keeping me extra warm over tights which is a bonus ! 

My Christmas exams begin on Monday and I am one hundred and one percent petrified as my memory tells me that I have not studied enough ! I'm about to study a few subjects and it's a Saturday - A Saturday ! I've never studied on a Saturday before so that is a first. Although, I have to add that there's been way too many first times surrounding studying lately one is that I actually studied for history rather than cramming twenty minutes before the exam starts - 'Buladh bos' for me alright,

And if you can't detect the sarcasm, You've misunderstood

New Look jumper | Dunnes shorts | Penneys blouse | Penneys hat and gloves
Lyrics : Hard Out Here by Lily Allen (side note I love the lyrics in this song omigod.) 

I've came to terms with the fact that I am going to have to get up earlier on a Saturday since morning since yesterday was the second consecutive day I didn't take outfit photos until I came home when sunset had passed. My camera has decided not to function anymore and for the next thirty days I'm going to have to fiddle around with my mam's camera or ask her to take the photo for me (which she did in this case thank you mammyyy.) so hopefully December will go by as fast as November has.

I love my outfit from yesterday since it's very monochrome and berry. It's also so cosy and the texture of the material shorts reminds me of New Years Eve dresses. Maroon is my new favourite colour which is why this outfit appears very matching and I've ended up "borrowing" my mam's maroon hat and gloves lately - Especially the gloves since my fingerless mittens feel uncomfortable over or under the sleeves of my school jacket which sucks. The lighting doesn't do the outfit justice which is my own fault so I'm going to probably include this outfit in a holiday lookbook on my YouTube next month so when I'm filming that I'll take a photo or two of this outfit.  While speaking of clothes, I found knee high socks in Dunnes yesterday and they all looked so perfect ! My parents bought me a pair of black glittery ones so I'm paying them back by doing a few more "chores" or just "jobs around the house" as I call them.

By the way thanks a million for your helpful comments on Friday's post,

How long will I love you, As long as stars are above you

 New Look coat | F&F jumper | Penneys blouse | Dunnes Stores beanie | Skirt from local shop 
Lyrics : How Long Will I Love You by Ellie Goulding 

 Today I wasn't in school again as this time, I went up to Dublin for an appointment to do with my scoliosis ! There was an X-Ray done and it turns out that the curve of my spine is thirty nine degrees which I don't think is really bad but it does mean that from now on I have to do some kind of exercise every day of the week for an hour to avoid surgery ! I'm not very active or motivated but my mam is describing this as a "lifeline" so if you's have any motivation tips or ideas for exercising at home I will love you for ever because I don't do PE in school and the furthest I've gone when it comes to exercising is running on the Wii Fit which I will end up getting bored of if I do it continuously every night. Oops.

We went to a shopping centre this afternoon before we came home and I'm feeling all festive after hearing a Christmas song for the first time this year in New Look ! The sky was pitch black by the time we came home , My camera is dead and we've no batteries hence why these photos are very dark and slightly blurry since I'm not so skilled when it comes to my nanny's camera. I loved my outfit so much today and it made me feel particularly warm and cosy during this cold winters day. I've been wearing my hair in one side plait lately since I am still going through a braid phase and personally, The messier the plait - The more I love it ! I keep forgetting that it is almost December now so I have to remind myself in the mornings to apply hand cream and wear a hat and gloves ! 

I'm going to go now as I'm going to watch I'm A Celebrity with my nanny who won't mind me saying that it's her favourite programme right now. Also I have almost a hundred subscribers on YouTube so thanks a million, Click here for my channel if you'd like to subscribe,

I came across a fallen tree I felt the branches of it looking at me

Top and jacket used to be my mam's | Topshop skirt | School brogues and tights 
Lyrics : Somewhere Only We Know by Keane

I've been loving dark colours lately or basically anything that's close to black but isn't black. I only just realised now as I write this, but my entire outfit today is burgundy-brown. I was in a rush getting ready this morning and I thought this brown and burgundy striped top would look lovely with the burgundy skirt even though it was a bit light for winter but I wore them anyway and I think they looked quite nice with my red lipstick and the jacket. Wearing jumpers out rather than tucked in is on trend right now although this top was going to look bulky either way so I just tucked it in for less hassle bringing the trouble of creases and looking flabby which I think looks a million times better than if I was to leave it out. I love layering and now that it's getting very cold, I'm looking forward to wearing hats and gloves too so look out for them in upcoming posts because I will not be hiding them ! My makeup is very neutral. Like I said earlier, I was in a rush this morning so I've only concealer on, Neutral eyes with winged liner and a red lip ! 

We have a day off on Wednesday since the third and sixth year parent teacher meetings are on in the morning and then there's an open day for incoming first years (Basically one of the teacher unions have regulations that they won't work outside school hours.) so I'm going to take advantage of it and get lots of stuff done - I might even write a blogpost ! My Christmas Exams are from the 2nd-4th December so I'm going to enjoy the next seven days seeing as the week after this, I'll be studying for the exams and sure then after the exams we've only two and a half weeks left. I've lots of videos and posts planned to the point I don't know if I'll have the time to put all of them up ! I can't stand the fact that everywhere's been full of Christmas so far this month and every single TV advertisement is a Christmas ad meaning that in our house, Every time a Christmas ad comes on the television we switch channels ! 

By the way, What do you's think of the new header ?

Got a little soul The world is a cold cold place to be

Skirt from local shop | Old cardigan worn back to front | Penneys blouse | School tights and brogues | Ladybird ring from local shop | H&M bottle-top style ring
Lyrics : Unbelievers by Vampire Weekend

Today myself my brother and my mam visited nanny as my uncle and baby cousin were visiting too and don't see them alot since they don't live nearby which is why there is a change of scenery ! It was freezing cold and we didn't actually realise how cold it was until we got out of the car and then my mam realised that we should've brought our hats. 

I really love my outfit today although I felt extremely overdressed and overly white because almost the entire outfit consists of white ! I can't distinguish whether the pattern on the skirt is peacock or leopard print, but whichever it is, It is so beautiful and crazy so I kept the rest of the outfit less crazy and statemented with the cardigan back to front over the leather collared blouse which the blue by the way brought out the teal in the skirt so I felt clever. I'm also wearing my usual H&M ring because I feel like I glue it on at weekends (I really don't I swear.) and then the ladybird ring was an impulsive buy on Halloween, I'm sad to say. We were in a local shop and the ring kept staring at me and I kept staring at it so then after twenty minutes of roaming around the shop I went back and bought it because I felt bad if I abandoned it seeing as it mightn't have been there next time and I'd be like "nooo". Also by the way these photos were so difficult to take because the wind was being a cow so my hair looks like it's been egged on by a fan. 

I don't have any interesting news to share with you's all except a teeny reminder that #tbloggers is on tonight from 8-9pm GMT. If you don't know what #tbloggers is, It is an hourly long chat for teenage bloggers (although anyone of any age can join.) each Saturday on Twitter and you can click here to find out more. It's a brilliant way to get to know other bloggers around the same age as you or with similar interests. I think I could be hosting this weekend and the topic choices to vote for are Christmas post/gift ideas or favourite products of all time so I hope to see some of you's there,
