Put a penny in the slot and make an artificial light shine....

Wow, it sure has been a while hasn't it!
First and foremost i want to apologise for abandoning my lil baby (that's the blog for any of you who were wondering). Here is my very legit excuse...iv'e been raving it up in a tent with a hangover for the past couple of days. Not as glam as your average blogger is it? Reading Festival has royally taken it out of me, as i've been asleep for the past 4 days - felt like Sleeping 'not so' Beauty :)

Well, here is a quick lil post from when i went on holiday with my family to Cornwall to ride some waves. During the day, when on occasion, the sea was flat for as far as your eyes could see, the fam and I would be all touristy.
Here are some pics of our cheesy family love on a day out on the Cornish golden sands.

I'll be posting my Reading pics soon, they're being developed, fingers crossed :)
Loads of love,

You were better than whatever came before

After Glow- Foals

Hey all!

A teeny outfit post today, the last of my photos from Spain- I miss the holidays already!
Dress- Primark, Belt- H&M, Shoes- Spain
Recently I've been...
Giving Ayla a few too many treats (yes hamster doughnuts do exist!)
Making the most of time with the family
Baking a huge amount of cupcakes
Pointlessly wishing for Prom dresses I can never have (no, you will never be able to afford Elle Saab!)
Giving my room a little makeover!

What have you been up to lately?!

Loads of love, Paloma xxx

Arctic Monkeys- Cornerstone
Top and Sunglasses- Primark, Shorts-Forever 21

Shirt- Primark, Jeans, Shoes and Bag- Topshop
Hey all,
Sorry for the mixed up post, taking you all the way from the beach to not so sunny London! With Jess having the time of her life at reading this weekend (definitely no bitterness here...) I am chief blog writer for a couple of days! So here is a little outfit post for you guys! Jess's pictures were taken on her surfing holiday in Cornwall a couple of weeks back- how tanned is she?! Its not fair!! My outfit is from a little trip to London with my sister. Living in London is something which I probably take for granted and I never really get round to doing all the touristy bits, so, it was really nice exploring the gorgeous capital- which let me say looks even more beautiful when the sun is shining!
Loads of love,

There's this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow, and I play it on repeat until I fall asleep

 Dress- Primark, Wedges- TK Maxx, Bag- Forever 21

Here are some pictures taken on a trip to Malaga. Rather embarrassing there seemed to be an abundance of lemon trees, so lets just say I fitted right in... joking aside despite looking like a walking plant this dress is my absolute favourite for summer :)

Jess went off to Reading festival today- wellies on feet and umbrella in hand- so she's in for a fab weekend! Perhaps due to my own lack of festival blues I have been listening to music a lot lately- even more than usual- in particular the Arctic Monkeys. They have been playing on constant repeat as I continue my university search- its all happening too fast!

Check out their latest single Why'd you only call me when your high? (if only just to check out the video, its so bizarre!)

Loads of love, Paloma xxx

Love is a fire of flaming brandy, upon a crepe suzette

Life is a Minestrone- 10CC
 Dress- Primark, Espadrilles- TK Maxx, Bag- Forever 21
Hey all!
A couple more holiday snaps for you all, this time taken on a trip into the town of Marbella (that's Marbs to any of you TOWIE fans out there- me included!) It was probably one of my favourite places that we visited on holiday (the bubble-gum ice-cream may have clinched it for me!) due to its charming traditional Spanish feel- think cobbled streets and tapa bars galore.
Jess is off to Reading festival tomorrow- I am major jealous- is anyone else heading down to Reading or Leeds this weekend?
Loads of love, Paloma xxx

Only know you love her when you let her go

Let her go- Passenger
Dress and Bag- Forever 21 (new), Shoes- Spain, Sunnies- Primark

So, this song, must of played every single time that we got into the car during the holiday! Not exactly the sound of the summer (i.e. something you want to dance the night away too) but still, a cute song! I brought this dress on a crazy shopping spree in Forever 21 in America- everything is so much cheaper there and I couldn't resist this dress (oh and the bag too- opps!) We went for a walk and breakfast in a beautiful old town near Marbella, it was gorgeous! And by breakfast, I mean pastries and cafĂ© con leche- perfect!

Loads of love, Paloma xxx

Wake up, would you like to come with me? Honey, take a run down to the beach...

Let's Go Surfing - The Drums
Hey guys!
I'm finally posting, and believe me, i've missed this!
It feels like we have been out of the blogging game for AGES, but we both have our feet solidly on British turf and are not leaving the rainy Isles for the forseeable future :)

So, if you read the last post, while Paloma was off in sunny Spain, I abandoned my plans to go to Rome, due to the prices for last minute holidays (I wish I was more organised) being through the roof. Instead, to console myself, I decided to head over to oh so familiar Cornwall on a Surfing holiday. Accompanied by my family, we said that this is the last family holiday for a long time, as two teenage girls and parents can cause a lot of bickers.
But if you know me, you'll know that my love for the atlantic waves is so great that I had a fantastic time! Every morning, i'd wake up, grab my wetsuit and board and head down to the beach for a full morning of surfing. In the afternoon, sometimes i'd do some shopping or sightseeing with my family, so i wasn't completely abandoning them :) 
On this afternoon in particular, the waves weren't so good and it was drizzling with rain now and again, typical. My family and I, yes, including my dog, popped into the beautiful St. Ives and had the most delicious cream tea.
Love to hear from you all,
Jess xxx
