Forever 21 and H&M Haul

I went shopping a few weeks ago on my spring break and got some things at H&M and Forever 21 and got some jewelry that I've been loving! 

This yellow really pops when wearing anything neutral!

I guess I was really into chains that day seeing as this and have necklace have that same feature, haha.

This was a gift from my Aunt. Such a sweet message and I absolutely love the simpleness of it :)

Hello girlies! Its really starting to feel like March here (damp & cold) and I'm beginning to think our little heat wave we were having is over! :( wahh that makes me sad. Anywho, today's SOTD is Crash by the band You Me At Six. Now there's a little story behind these guys. They are a British pop-punk band from Surrey and my sister has been an avid fan of theirs for years. I can remember (when she still lived at home) her blaring their CD's from her room, and I could not stand it. I really did not like their style or music in the slightest. Now, that was when I was 14/15 years old. Fast forward three of four years later as I was dragged (literally) to a You Me At Six concert with her. Not thrilled in the least bit to be there I put on my happy face. Well, much to my surprise...I reallllly enjoyed the show, like really enjoyed it. I thought they sounded like a completely different band live compared the boys I would hear from my sisters room and plug my ears to. Since then, I saw them again in concert last January and they blew my socks off once again. Not only are they phenomenal performers, they are also reallllly attractive ;). The song Crash has got to be one of my favorites, and it's from their latest album "Sinners Never Sleep". I very much recommend checking them out and giving them a go! Listen to the beautiful song here! Do any of my British followers listen/like them? Let me know!!

Never Let Me Go

Heyyo! Unfortunately it is verrry windy today, so an OOTD was not possible, but, I did have some fun with my new camera taking some silly "mirror" pictures. It's kind of dorky and childish but I love this camera so much I really don't care if I'm a dork about it! haha, anywho, I guess you can call this my "face of the day"?? I really don't know if that's a blogger term or not :) Nevertheless here are some silly pictures of moi!! Today's SOTD is Never Let Me Go by the one and only Florence + The Machine. Easily my favorite female vocalist of all time! I saw her live last summer and it was by far one of the best shows I've ever been to! You might know the song that got her name out there, Dog Days Are Over (another phenomenal song) from her debut album Lungs. Today's SOTD however, is from her latest album Ceremonials. Trust me when I say, you are about to be amazed. For full body goosebumps click here :)
