Holiday Haul

<3 Finally! I've got around to it!! I'm in London for the week and i've just found a moment to upload the photos and write this, so lets get on with it!

Here's a selection of some of the clothes i picked up. Everything is so cheap over there, it's unbelieveable!! All the shops we get in the UK are selling at almost half the price in the USA, i just to buy it all really!
(Left to Right)
<3 Original Yankees T-Shirt - New York, $57, the shop across the road from my apartment 
<3 Skirt, LA, Forever 21, $15
<3 Aztec Style dress - (i am in love with this dress!), LA, Forever 21, $22
<3 TCB Shirt - Memphis, Graceland's gift shop (Graceland's is Elvis Presley's house!)
<3 Jumper - New York, American Eagle Outfitters, $54

 (Here's a close up of my new fave dress!)

<3 As you can probably tell i am pretty much in love with Forever 21 and can't wait to visit it later on this week here in London!


<3 Ok so i have my laaaaaverly vans finally !! i have wanted some for ages, but waited to get some from the US because i knew they would be alot cheaper. And they were! Only $55!! and the dollar is only a fraction of the pound so this is extreamly cheap! I got the Vans from a specialized Vans and converse shop in LA.
<3 Also in the picture there are my lovely candyfloss pink Converses which i also adore. I got these from a shoe warehouse in LA for a really good price which, unfortunately, I can't remember!

<3 Moving swiftly onto gifts! It was jsut the usual kind of thing, some New York choccies, bracelets from Venice beach and a holly wood star from the hollywood boulevard. Some presents you may have found more interesting, (make-up acquired from target and Wal-Mart)  i have unfortunately already given away to my friend (who i mentioned in my last post -  Glamerdoll ) so i wasn't able to get photos! If anyone is interested i could list them but i won't bother you in this post!

<3 So that is a brief over view of my purchases form America, hope you enjoyed it and i will do a post on my holiday as well, including some photos when i find the time! I promise my posts will become more regular after the holidays are over and i am back into a proper routine.
<3 Today i went into Oxford street and Carnaby Street to all the vintage shops in London, it was really nice and i finally managed to find a quilted jacket that wasn't scarily expensive. Anyway, pictures to come! ..

Music Video

<3 heyy! Sorry i still haven't elaborated much on my holiday as i promised, but i have just been SO busy lately, mainly having fun and enjoying the limited english sun but ahh well, i will get around to it!! I'll post some more pics telling you what i did and then one on what i brought, if any of you are interested that is ! ..
<3 Anywhoo, on to this video ! Me and my gorgeous best friend Shannon filmed this yesterday when our plans of going to the beach were ruined by flash floods - very inconvenient, i know ! ;) This video is on our joint youtube channel - Vintagebeautygirls ( Vintagebeautygirls ) please go check out our other vids if your interested, help us get to 2000 subs ? ..
<3 So we wanted this video to have a kind of "home movie" feel and i think it worked out well, i am soo pleased with it and it was a lot of fun to make !!  This is the first music video we have ever done and now we have i definitely want to do more!Of course we didn't sing and this isn't our song, its Young Blood by The Naked and Famous - LOVE IT !! We thought it fitted the theme of the video well, just about having fun and being young and carefree. We chose the song last of all and i think it goes great!
<3 BTW, Shannon has a loverly blog so please go check it out ! - Glamerdoll
<3 I have talked wayyy too much now, so please just enjoy the film !
