lace up swimsuit and embroidered trainers – Rosegal wishlist

lace up swimsuit and embroidered trainers – Rosegal wishlist

With payday just around the corner, I’ve put together a wishlist of items including a lace up swimsuit, yellow crochet bikini, fish net socks and embroidered trainers from rosegal.com! Hopefully I’ll inspire you to spend some money you shouldn’t be spending too.

First up is this absolutely gorgeous embroidered black dress – check it out here. I love the really low neck line and the rose embroidery is gorgeous – I’m a bit obsessed with embroidery at the moment, as you’ll realise as you read this post. This dress is just $14, which is an absolute bargain as it’s so pretty!

Also on my wishlist, are these embroidered white trainers. Again with the embroidery, I love it. They have three different designs available – blue flowers, red roses and gold flowers, but I especially love the red roses. They’re the perfect summer trainers and they’re only $20!

I’m also loving Rosegal’s bikinis. They’ve got so so many to choose from and I particularly love all of their tropical patterned ones and the lace-up ones. This black one with floral bottoms and a lace up top is my favourite and would be perfect for my holiday in August – check it out here! If you’re in need of a bikini, definitely go check out Rosegal because they have such a variety and they’re all such good prices!

I’m also obsessed with this lace up swimsuit and this yellow crochet bikini – go check out all their bikinis because there are hundreds to choose from so whatever you’re looking for, they’ve got it!

I’m really into the whole fish net tights and socks look at the moment, and so a pair of fish net socks would have to be on my wishlist. At just $1.79 from Rosegal, how can I say no? Check out my favourite pair here.

Finally, I’m obsessed with this off the print floral striped dress. It’s so pretty and is the kind of dress you could wear with heels if you were dressing up, or with converse on a nice sunny day.

Why not head over to Rosegal and make your own wishlist – they’ve got some great summer clothes and shoes to pick from! You can also get 10% off if you’re a new customer so make sure you go check them out.

Let me know which you’d buy in the comments and keep an eye out for a post later this week when I’ll have no-doubt accidentally ordered these. I’ve also got a June Favourites post going up on Saturday morning so make sure you subscribe my blog to be the first to see that!

Thank you so much for reading and don’t forget to check out my Twitter and Instagram to find more from me!

Real talk – voting in the General Election

Real talk – voting in the General Election

(For important links to help you get educated about voting and register to vote in the 2017 General Election skip to the bottom of the post!)

If you are a young person living in the UK then please take the time to read this post.

Before I get into this, I realise that education is messed up – they’re more interested in whether you’re wearing nail varnish or your trousers are to tight than educating you on politics and what a mortgage means and how taxes work. Their priorities are all wrong and as a result, so many people leave school not having a clue about politics. Ultimately, education is to blame, in my opinion, for the amount of people who don’t vote. However, I can’t not put up a post about this as it is important to me and I know young people read my blog and I can’t not say this.

Use your vote

A few years ago I didn’t really understand why so many people get so annoyed about people who don’t vote, I mean in the grand scheme of things is my single vote really going to make that much of a difference? Yes. If everyone thought that way then nobody would vote. Only 64% of people voted in my constituency in the 2015 General Election. Do you realise how much of a difference we could’ve made?

I see all the people in my town ranting about how much they hate Conservatives and how our MP does nothing for us, but if so many people think that way then how did we end up with a Conservative MP again in 2015? I’ll tell you how, not enough of them got out there to vote.

We have been granted an opportunity for a say by our lords and masters, the politicians, and some of us are literally throwing that a way. This so called ‘democracy’ is incredibly unfair as it is, don’t throw away the one little bit of power that we do have. So many people don’t vote, possibly because they are lazy, or because “I don’t know enough about politics so I won’t vote” or “my one vote won’t make a difference” or even “I don’t like the leader even though I like the policies.” Would you believe I’ve even heard some people say “I knew Conservatives would get back in anyway so I didn’t bother voting” and even worse “I thought Labour were going to get in for sure so I didn’t bother voting.”

Can you see how pathetic all of those arguments are? It takes ten minutes on Google to get some basic knowledge of each party and their manifestos. You don’t even have to get up and go out to your local polling station, register for postal voting – it comes right to your door and you don’t have to lift a finger. Your one vote counts for so many reasons… it shows politicians that we aren’t ignorant and lazy and we care. It also means that more people voting means we can actually get a better outcome. Don’t sit there and complain about the “bloody tories” and then not go out and vote. You do not have the right to complain about anything if you don’t attempt to make a difference.

As for the “I don’t like the leader even though I like the policies,” that is ridiculous. You aren’t voting for Corbyn or May, you’re voting for who you’d like to represent your constituency and what is important to you. I don’t particularly like either Corbyn or May, but I am not going to give up my vote because I don’t like how they dress/their hair style.

I’m sure even my followers that aren’t English are more than aware of the fact that we will be leaving the EU. Do you know the turn out for England was 73%. What happened to the other 27%? You look at how damn close that referendum was – Leave won by 51.9%. Do you see how that 27% could’ve made a difference when it is so close like that? But, yeah, I’m just using that as an example because I wasn’t happy with the outcome and I wanted to remain, aren’t I? Maybe. It proves my point though.

Right, so if you’ve made it this far – which I really hope you have – I’m going to give you some links to make this all very easy for you.

SOME QUIZZES TO HELP YOU DECIDE WHO TO VOTE  FORQuiz one | Quiz two

Now you have no excuse. It takes five minutes to register, five minutes to read up on the policies, five minutes to do one of those quizzes. Get signed up for postal voting so you don’t even have to pause Netflix to vote. Whatever you do, just do something. You do not have the right to sit and complain about our country if you do not vote. Your one vote DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

God I hope this post changes at least one persons mind.
