Ermahgerd LEEDS!!

Hello Sweeties!

Basically, this last weekend was WOW and the only bad thing was the toilets. I'll spare you the details, trust me I don't even want to re-live those memories.
"Dirtiest festival in the UK."

We stayed in the Green camp about 20 minute walk from the Main Stage where we got around six hours sleep. Our camp was really friendly, we met people from Newcastle and Manchester. 
Every night people would shout 
'Jesus Christ, FENTON!'.
We'd all join in, also the camps would do a Mexican wave but with cheering.

Until the acts who we wanted to see came on, we sat in the Comedy tent, which was always packed. We seen Al Murray and Chris Ramsey who both asked if any Geordies were in of course we shouted!! We also seen Reginald D Hunter who was amazing as always.
The main bands who we seen were Paramore, Florence + The Machine, Foster The People, Kasabian, Kaiser Chiefs, The Vaccines, Bullet For My Valentine, All Time Low, You Me At Six and Coheed and Cambria.
Those who have me on Instagram seen how close I was to many of them!
I was so surprised at how amazing Foster The People were!

The food is so exspensive, thank god I took my own. £2.20 for a normal sized bottle of Pepsi. A chicken burger was £5.00!!

We got beer thrown on us a few time, which isn't unusual at festivals. Many people said some people even throw pee! Speaking of pee, Chloe and Grace got actually pee'd on by two drunk men. One of them were so drunk the people crowd surfed him out. A guy overdosed in front of us and collapsed on me. On the last night people had brought flares into the arena. One guy got so badly burnt they put him in a body bag, I honestly thought someone had died until I seen the body move inside.

Anyhooo, it really was an amazing weekend. I'll defiantly be doing it again, it was totally worth every single penny.

I also took a disposable camera with me, so when I get the developed I shall put them on here :D
Also, most of my photos have disappeared so once I have time I shall be re-taking them and re-creating NOTD's.

Who would you see if you had the chance?

Leeds Festival!

Hey Sweeties, 

My next post won't be until next week as of tomorrow, I shall be on my way to Leeds Festival!!
Seriously can't contain my excitement any longer, I'm currently packing bouncing around the house to Florence + The Machine. 
God, I do LOVE that woman & on Sunday I'll be in front of her screaming my lungs out!

I'm going with Chloe and Grace as Heather her sister can't go any more due to a horrible recovery from her tonsils being taken out.

Get well soon Heather!

I'm so excited, seriously I don't think I've been this excited since I went to see Steps live.
 My childhood was great don't judge :P

I'll be taking my phone so you can follow what I get up to on 
 Instagram @ x_justsmile 

Be back soon.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your week & weekend!

Then the next day I went to Carphone Warehouse to get the phone, ANOTHER fit dude served me!

Tiny H&M rant!

Hey sweeties!

I was in town with Kate yesterday shopping, as Kate had some birthday money to spend.

Happy birthday Kate!

So we popped into H&M as she seen a top online in the plus size range.
Me and Kate are both plus size and we're proud of that.
We went to the one on Newcastle's highstreet, which has 3 floors. We looked on each floor and couldn't find the range, in the end we asked somebody.
We eventually found it hid in a dark corner. I was felt uncomfortable and ashamed to be looking.
"Urgh fat peoples clothes, shove them out of the way somewhere"
came to my mind.
What was even worse I felt as if we were being mocked as there was hardly any room to move around the 5 single rows of clothes. They were all squashed together. I won't be going back to H&M as I personally feel that they're are sizest. And the staff just look at you like you're nothing. So I'll be sticking to Dorothy Perkins and George-Asda!

We're going to Digital tonight to celebrate her birthday!
If I have time I'll get an outfit photo.

Five reasons to smile:
1. I've nearly finished reading 50 Shades Darker.
2. It's Kates birthday.
3. I have 3 job interviews this week.
4. I'm getting a new phone in 2 days.
5. 10 days until I go to Leeds festival.

Do you have 5 or more reasons to smile this week?

To Eboracum!

Hey Sweeties!
With everything going on in life I forgot to post about my recent trip to York.
First of all we missed the damn train, we were in a hurry and I looked at the wrong board. 
Me & Yasmin stayed at Kate's new house which is SO big.
It even has a football table! Out came my competitive side, but Yassy whooped my ass. :(
Day 1. Once we had arrived and unpacked our stuff, we headed to an Indians which was lovely I didn't have a Korma! Strange I know, I always have a Korma. We had a right laugh trying to pronounce the dishes but all I can remember about mine was that it had nuts and milk in.
Afterwards I had my first pint in a beer garden! It was so nice and the weather was perfect.

Day 2. We had a walk around town and went down Charity shop lane where I bought the beauties in this post and popped into the most adorable shop Daisy Taylors in this post.
We ended up going to another beer garden :) 
This is the day I fell in love with Barry M!

Then on night 2 we hit York town.
Sadly this time we didn't encounter half naked men on a revolving dance floor. 
Had a brilliant night, then woke up like this.

5,4,3,2,1 - *Hugging the toilet*

Day 3. Me and Yas shopped some more and walked around the wall! Half of the city, whilst having a little break beside the river we got attacked by geese. We calmly got up and walked away, thankfully I did not panic.

I love this photo of Yas! <3

Changes are poop.

Hey sweeties. 
I'm in such a pickle in life at the moment.
I started the childcare job I mentioned in a previous post yesterday which was meant to be for four days a week, finally I thought I'd be able to sign off of the dole. Yet, they say I'm needed 2 days a week. 


I hate, hate, hate being on the dole.
So my search for a job that's 16 hours a week continues. Why 16? I need a job to fit around my part time degree.
If I can't find a job within the next month I can't go to uni, which I've had my heart set on for this past year. I can't go because I only get my course paid for, no bursaries because it's a part time course not full time. 
Which completely sucks.

What's even worse is that I've completely fallen out with my mam because of this as she never wanted me to go to uni. 
So for a few days I'm staying at Kates which I'm so grateful. Her mam and sister too, they're truly like my adopted family. I'm so lucky to have them as they're the only people who I can really turn to. 
A lot like Sirius and James Potters relationship.

So for now I'm trying to decided what's for the best.
1. Not to do the Foundation Degree and concentrate on getting a job.
2. Do an apprenticeship.
3. Concentrate on getting a job and re-apply for uni next year, which leaves me time to get placements in a nursery for the mean time. 

I know which ever option I choose will be best for me, but it still feels poop!
It's worse when one of your parents live on the other side of the world too.

So for now I have a lot of thinking to do whilst watching the beautiful divers at the Olympics. 
*Cough Cough Chris Mears*

Hey Sweeties!
Thanks so much for the lovely comments on my last post I truly appreciated them. And I promise to post my tattoo on here, which I think will be getting done in October once I can gather up the money.

Ever since I was little I've loved the Olympics, I'd watch all of the ceremony. 
Yep that's right, watching every single country coming into the stadium.
Which is extremely boring!
How AMAZING was our ceremony!? 
Danny Boyle did a brilliant job though at the start I didn't have a clue what was going on, just got really excited that I heard the Tardis in Bohemian Rhapsody!  
I did cry through most of it, I feel so proud to be British.
This year I was on the phone to Kate discussing the out fits (not many that we actually liked) and constantly saying 'I've never heard of that country'. We couldn't stop laughing at the fact there's a country called Djibouti.
Yes, we can be very immature.

When I found out St James Park were hosting some football matches. I wanted to go, with having no money I was gutted I couldn't get tickets. Then my uncle rang up the day before, saying he had 4 free tickets asking if I wanted to go and I could bring a friend. 

Before the match our bags had to be searched, I forgot my 50 Shades book was in my bag!
The guy said 'I didn't know there was pornography in the stadium today' :S
We seen USA vs New Zealand women's quarter finals. It was brilliant we had good seats and the atmosphere was great.
A Mexican wave circled the stadium about 5 times :)
I wanted New Zealand to win but unfortunately USA did 2-0.

And this is what I wore.

Jacket: Simply Be, Shirt: Dorothy Perkins, Skirt: H&M, Leggings: Primark, Boots: Primark.
