Hello! Where I've Been etc

Hey! Its phoebs :)
 My blogging has rather lacked recently, but i can explain! I have been rehearsing for my school play, Alice In Wonderland and it was performed last night. It went rather well. Also it was my birthday on tuesday so I was busy. A Birthday Haul will be up sometime next week, if my post scheduling  works. 

I am also going to be away from tomorrow until next saturday on a school trip. There should be a post up sometime next week if it works, sorry if it doesnt. 

A massive thanks for 50 Blog Lovin Followers! I will be giving some bloggers a shoutout in tomorrows post, so look out for that. 

Finally after next week, the blogging will get better! Summer will be upon me and everything will be great. Sorry it has been a slow blogging month, but I am determind to be an amazing blogger over the summer. 

Here is a sneak peak into tomorrows post exciting right? 

I will have a 'proper' post up tomorrow then after next week, blogging will be back to normal. 
Thanks for bearing with me :)

OOTD: Summer Style

Hey! Its phoebs :)
Tomorrow until friday I have exams *screams* But after that the post will be so regular!

Today is my final full on day of revision. It is such a shame the weather is so good! After this post is published I will be sorting out what I need for tomorrow, I feel very unorganised haha. 
Another of my closest friends found out about my blog! Im glad she knows coz its nearly a year (next saturday is the blogiversary) since I started! If you are reading this millie, first off, hello and secondly I hope you enjoy the post haha. On to the outfit. 
It was extremely hot today so this outfit was perfect for the weather. I think it gives quite a 'beachy' look. 
Sunglasses: a hotel shop
Shirt: Superdry
Shorts: Boohoo
Bracelets: Various sets from Primark 

Shoes: Newlook
I really like these sandals. They are quite edgy with the black and gold. I love how they can be quite casual and quite dressy, if you want them to be. 
I dont think anyone understands how exciting I find this photo. And it only took 1 try to get it right! 
With the shirt, you can really adjust the length. You can have it normal length or cropped, coz it ties at the front. The sleeves are the same. I find it a bit fiddly to make them shorter, but I think it looks better. 
Me trying to be hipster.......
All in all, I am going to enjoy wearing this look in the summer. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and got inspired to find your summer style. I will post next saturday for Geek Chic Notes 1 year birthday! How exciting! Also, I am trying to get 50 Blog Lovin Followers by my birthday on June 24th. I currently have 44, so if you lovely people would be as kind as to follow the blog I will love you forever. Yeah :D

Music Musings: Of Monsters and Men

Hey! Its phoebs :) 
Today I thought I would talk about the kind of music I like. I am the greatest Imagine Dragons fan, and I always will be. Recently I have discovered another band, Of Monsters and Men. Their music is alternative. It really is lovely. 

Of monsters and men feautures guys and girls, making them a bit different in the 'band world' .

My favourite song of the moment is Dirty Paws. It is very simple but the harmonies are chilling. My favourite lyrics from the song are 'the dragonfly it ran away, but it came back with a story to say' 
I think it shows how you have to step out of your comfort zone to get new oppourtunities. 
(Felt like I have just done an english PEA paragraph- Point, Evidence, Analysis haah) 

One of their most famous songs (well I think) from the album is Little Talks. Allegedly the song is about a widow missing her husband, kinda depressing right? The song is acutally quite upbeat. I originally thought it was about a couple who couldnt communicate well with each other and had the perfect relationship in their dreams. My favourite lyric is 'dont listen to a word I say, the screams all sound the same' I think you can really interpret that in your own way, which is why I love that lyric. 

The final song I think worthy of a mention is Mountain Sound. Again quite upbeat. Their voices blend so well in this song. I'm not too sure what it is precisley about, but it puts you in a good mood. Theres not one part of the lyrics that really calls out to me, I love it all! The chorus is great though, go listen!

That is my take on Of Monsters and Men, really go check them out! Their whole album is just under a fiver on itunes I think, go download it!

P.s before my birthday (end of June) I would LOVE 50 followers on Blog Lovin! So click the Blog Lovin button in the side bar from this post and follow my blog! Would mean a lot <3
