Tartan Trousers

Do you ever buy pieces and hope they stay in your life for ages and feel slightly sad as soon as you get them because you know other trousers just won’t cut it anymore?  Jeans are ruined for me now. These New Look tartan trousers are the one. They are super comfy, look like smart trousers, are elasticised at the back, feel like pyjamas, still not decided if they actually are or not. Worn with a Cola jumper to keep the comfort level high. Heels to make an effort and red accessories.

In June

A round up of the looks from June. Enjoying the memories of each day in June, it was such a jam packed month, spending time with family and friends, creating content and going to events. I hope July is just the same.

Middle Fingers Up

This is a ‘We Are Awesome Sassy Women (and anyone that needs a pep talk) and people can’t treat us like crap anymore’ blog post.For far too long I personally have been on the receiving end of shit. People ( cough boys) want to rain on my parade or take advantage, who think it’s cool to treat me like crap. I know some of you feel that way too. I say NO LONGER!!

We are the cool girls we are the ones that you aren’t good enough for. We are smart and funny and can step in line with all the others. If you come our way with an idea of how we should be for you, you get a middle finger. If you can love us for our sass, amazing sense of humour, killer looks, general good human being skills, step on over. Thank god for H, I no longer have to listen to Bull and can actually talk to a fit guy about cheese sandwiches and Irn Bru, who will take my outfit photos for me.Having someone in your life that appreciates you really highlights how little others think of you, and to brush them off asap.

West Quay Student Sessions

I’m never a girl to pass up a chance to go shopping, especially if that includes discounts. West Quay hosted Student Sessions for all the Southampton students to shop with discounts, dance and win some prizes.

I didn’t really do any damage, I went to my favourite shops as they were more quiet. Jack Wills were giving out free beer which was a great touch, and their staff were very nice. The gentleman that served me in Hotel Chocolat was an actual delight, very charming and friendly.

I wondered around the shops through hoards of people looking for bargains. I cheekily asked the very lovely sales assistant in Fat Face to take a photo of me. Which he kindly obliged.

Foam

 The first week of freshers is almost over and i thought I’d give you a little insight into what it’s like. Now i’m 22 and live in a little beautiful village and I love living there, hearing horses and cows when i wake up, or a church bell, so serene.

The university I chose is in a city, I live in halls on the ground floor. Something for nothing it’s very noisy, i can hear people cough in the next room, hear airplanes, cars, people. It’s a whole world apart from what i’m used to.

With a city comes more people and more clubs and as a fresher it’s a free for all deciding on what club to go to for the night. Every club competes for people. Oceana held a foam party which I had to go to. Canons of foam are sprayed over the crown and you all dance and mosh together to loud thumping music, you do feel like you are underwater (in a storm).

Tips to survive a foam party.

Wear flat shoes (trainers) it’s so slippy

wear clothes you aren’t worried about getting ruined. Head to Primark and get some leggings and a top, that isn’t white.( I went to the new look sale and picked things up for £4)

girls your handbag should be cross body with a good closer. If you drop it in the foam it’s going to be hard to find it again.

take wipes with you for your makeup, because it will be down your face.

coat check a towel or something to get rid of the foam and something to keep you warm if you walk home with your friends. ( i did neither of these things and wish i had)

the visibility in the foam

img_3255 img_3260 img_3262 img_3264

the foam its hard to get off your legs and feet, your hair get soaked and feels slimy.

BUT!! it’s so much fun and I think i laughed from when the foam first started coming until I went to bed. You are with your friends having a laugh doing something you’ve never done before. But remember to not rub your eyes, they will sting!!

Thanks for reading, more freshers posts to follow.

Vesuvio

Saying bye to my work friends started with dinner at Vesuvio, an Italian on the water front in Bournemouth. Last time i was there i had a pizza which was delicious but this time i had a lasagne dish. Which didn’t live up to how excited i was or how hungry i was. A little tasteless but their bellinis are lovely. And the lemon cheesecake was a smash hit.

Harry Paye day is an annual event held on Poole Quay every year on the 18th June, but I’ve only been this year. You dress up as a pirate and have a laugh with your friends while you raise some money for local charities.

I pulled on my boots and bandana and dashed to meet my friend before everything finished. I made it just in time to watch the last band play and eat an ice-cream.

It’s amazing that you can pull a costume together with a tan belt, lose shirt, knee high boots and a bandana.

Bandana – Similar 

boots – similar 

jeans – New Look

coat – Long Tall Sally

belt – Similar and beautiful

shirt – Topshop  similar, similar 

bag – Calvin Klein  similar  (sale)

One Year of The Curly Haired Girl

The Curly Haired Girl turned one of the  21st of April! Last year I wasn’t happy with the content I was creating on my old blog, I didn’t know what my next move was. How was I to move forward with my old content lurking around? I couldn’t, so I made the bold step to start again, from scratch!!

thecurlyhariedgirl.org.uk was launched and I started to think about what I wanted to share more seriously.

My plans for Year Two: Go to more blogger events and to start university in September, and get my hair sorted so that I’m happy with it.

Fortunately the 21st was also date night, so myself and the boy headed to 7Bone in Bournemouth I ordered the Shuffle to the Straight Time and he went for Prince Charles is overrated.
