Here's a chilled outfit of the day for you guys, it was such a b-e-a-utiful day today (fingers crossed the weather stays like this) we had to go outside and decided we might as well take some snaps. We just wanted to say a thank you to our few members and all your lovely comments we couldn't believe that someone would actually read it (!), anyway thanks again and we'll hopefully see you soon!

|Crop Top// American Apparel|

Here are a couple of snaps we took before our friend's Birthday meal, although you may mistake our outfits for funeral attire. However we realised they accurately reflect the wonderful British 'summer' we're experiencing. Taking photos of ourselves 'posing' is always going to be a tad awks, and as you can see keeping a straight face was a little difficult. Anyway, it was Lily's hair's debut and a chance to catch up with the rest of the gang :)

|Bare faced and beautiful (or not)|
Hey Guys, we thought we'd do a little post on our Silver DofE experience. And let us tell you it's not a read for the faint hearted. In our opinions DofE is pretty much 90% pain and sorrow, and 10% delirious happiness. But for some reason it's always the 10% you seem to remember.
So firstly, let us enlighten you on the whole weather situation. It rained. And rained. Then there was sun. And then more rain. However in some ways it was a blessing, as it made us walk faster. So if you're about to embark on your own DofE experience, here are some tips we hope you find helpful...
No.1- SING. Seriously, it's the only way to get through it. We even made our own songs up. One entitled 'Shit, Sheep and Ticks' because that's all there is in Wales. Literally.
No.2 - On the theme of ticks, BEWARE. Remember, sheep=ticks so although it's tempting to lie face down in the grass after an exhausting day's walk, don't.
No. 3 - If you get lost, just go straight back to a main road. We spent hours looking for non-existing footpaths. WASTE OF TIME. Especially in Wales.
No. 4 - Walk as a group, not because it's the nice thing to do, but because if you don't...you're gonna fail.
No.5 - And finally, remember you're all in the same boat, take comfort in this. You'll need it when you're completely soaked through and smelling..erm...not so fresh.
Although this isn't the most encouraging of posts, it may sound cheesy, but it is a unforgettable experience/opportunity and regardless of the pain, worth doing. Not to mention you get to learn a little more than you'd like to know about your fellow teammates, and inevitably, friends.

|'Avin a bite at Ed's|
|ALI and her frapp|
|A reenactment of our expressions during the Cow 'incident'|
Hey Guys, here are some pictures from our trip into
and although it wasn't exactly shorts and sunnies wearing weather (not that
we've come to expect anything more) we still had a pretty good time.
So the main aim of going into Town was to pick up some presents for our friend's Birthdays (joint presents are sooo much easier) and surprisingly it didn't take us long to find what we were looking for: a pair of palazzo trousers from River Island, 'Pink Noveau' from MAC and a shorts and top combo from Urban Outfitters.
In celebration we headed off to Ed's Easy Diner in Selfridges, definitely a recommendation if you're peckish and in
Birmingham- as you can see we polished off the lot! They definitely do the best burgers (totally
regret not getting one of their famous milkshakes) as well as transporting you
straight back to the 1950s. Being able to choose a hit from that era (authentic
jukeboxes on each table) also adds to the experience!
We then trekked to Cow Vintage in order to have a mooch around. Definitely sell some good stuff, but the prices are a bit disappointing. However, it seems hygiene is not top of their list...as we found out. So whilst searching through their two pieces, we had no idea of the surprise we had in store as we examined the bottoms of one particular ensemble. Whilst turning them inside out and enthusing about how much we like them, we soon discovered the horrors that lurked below and our expressions soon turned to disgust as we noticed mysterious white 'stains' (shiver). Believe us, we sanitized immediately once leaving.
In order to comfort ourselves we went for a cheeky Starbucks and ordered a mango frappuccino and a chai tea latte. After giving our names (as you now do in
clearly and precisely, we sat down awaiting our drinks and apparently our new
names. 'A mango frapp for ALI' was followed by 'A chai tea latte for NIKKI'. Really?!
So from now on we've decided to simply make up a name on the spot.
Well that was our exciting day in Brum, we hope it was an entertaining read. Till next time,
Anna and Lil x
