OOTD/FOTD | Sunday

Hey guys!

I must firstly, apologise for the horrific quality of the pictures, I had a pretty busy day and only managed to take pictures this evening, of course meaning dodgy lighting and everything looking pixeley and yellow-toned.


Leather Jacket - Miss Selfridge * Necklace - Primark * Dress - Primark
Belt - Primark * Tights - Primark * Watch - Michael Kors * Ring - Primark

In case you haven't noticed, I've gone a bit Primark crazy recently!! 

Unfortunately it is back to Uni for me tomorrow since before Christmas, after something like 6 weeks off, I'm not in the slightest looking forward to it! There may be a small lack of blogging but nothing too major :)

Love from, Lucy xx

Coca-cola and WWF

Hello there,

This is a little bit of a random and different post to usual, but if you know me at all you will know I freaking love polar bears! So when the Coca-cola advert popped up onto the TV talking about their campaign/teaming with WWF to help against climate change, I was all ears.

Coca-cola and polar bears go hand in hand, I'm not sure where it all started but there have been numerous adverts and such things with polar bears in and as they are such a massive world wide company, it is 'nice' of them to be helping conserve the icebergylands. The website they tell you to go to ( asks you to share their campaign on Facebook, I never really get this. I mean if it means more people will donate, then fair enough, but people usually just like and share random things which quite frankly, does absolutely nothing. They have however gone a bit 'above and beyond' with the whole facebook share thing, giving people free use of facebook profile and cover pictures which promote the cause.

They have a 'learn more' page which is pretty useful, talking about polar bears, global warming, WWF etc etc, it also states that WWF and Coca-cola have been in in partnership for a few years? They claim they are going to cut their emissions, conserve water and so on but their main thing seems to be promoting and raising awareness.

One thing I do love about this whole thing is that Coca-cola are giving 1 million Euros (about £800,000) to WWF once a year for three years. They say how people's donated money will help...what it can buy, aka the usual.

It's lovely to hear of a massive company doing something pretty big for a charity, although i'm sure the 3 million Euros (about 2.6 million pounds) will be a mere dent in Coca-colas mahooosive wallet, but is immensely helpful none the less. Everyone and their dog and their dogs dog and their mums know about climate change, but I like that they're hitting it from the "Polar bear's home is melting" angle instead of the "rising sea levels/freak weather/how it will affect us" angle.

Overall, I'm impressed. 

Nice one, Cola :)

25 Facts About Me!


I have like 50 hauls to do (bit of an exaggeration) but I've been to work and am utterly shattered and so have a bit of a back-log of pictures and posts, to fill that gap I thought I'd hop on the band wagon and do a '25 Facts About Me' post.

1. I am a sweet maniac. I have to be in the mood for chocolate but I could eat sweets all day every day. My particular fave is giant sugared strawbs.

2. I'm very English. My parents have done part of their family tree, the furthest afield we have come from is Birmingham, which is about a half hour drive away, which is sort of boring I'd like to be part Italian or Irish or something.

3. My middle name is Elizabeth which is also the name of my nan's mum.

4. I did ballet for ten years going twice-three times a week until the age of about 15-16 when I gave up for my GCSEs, I regret giving up so much.

5. I am a little bit obsessed with Polar Bears, they're so beautiful and yet fierce and dangerous animals. My boyfriend adopted me a polar bear for Christmas. I love him haha.

6. Talking about boyfriends. I have been with Liam for coming up to 11 months, which has whizzed by. He makes me laugh so much, he's my boyfriend and best friend in one.

7. My favourite TV programmes are Big Bang Theory, New girl and Miranda. I'm a sucker for American TV and comedy things.

8. If I could be any superhero I'd be Superwoman (duuuuh ^^^^)

9. I used to swim for my county and came first in breaststroke, (I also met Tony the Tiger aka the frosties mascot, at one swimming competition. True story) but if you were to throw me into a pool now I'd look like a drowning fly. I lose skills very quickly.

10. I cry at EVERYTHING. I read a leaflet about childline earlier...started crying. Whenever I fall out with someone, hurt myself, read something sad etc etc I am a crying machine.

11. Saying that however, I never cry in movies, I was the one out of my group of friends sat there feeling bad because I didn't cry during Marley and me. The only movie I have cried at is Toy Story three, but can you blame me?

12. I am half way through my Degree at Uni and am studying Education Studies, it is so difficult and such hard work, but I guess that's the same for all degree courses.

13. I actually think I have a clothes/ make up addiction. I live for trips to town and could easily spend hundreds in a single visit, I don't though, I some how find the will power. I get a massive buzz from buying new things and feel somewhat deflated if I come home from a shopping trip with nothing new.

14. I love tea, I could live off solely drinking tea/ iced tea for the rest of my life. It doesn't matter if it's regular tea, extra strong tea, green tea, herbal tea...if it comes in a tea bag, I'll drink it. My particular favourite is the mint infused iced tea from Boston tea party.

15. I'm not a vegetarian but I cannot eat any type of meat that does not come from a joint. for example, If my mum cooks a joint of beef for Sunday lunch, it's fine, or if we go out for sunday lunch and I get turkey and the man cuts it up off the joint, it's fine. But any meat in ready meals of from a take away or even if it's like chicken curry in a resturant...can't eat it...I'm odd.

16. My friends often compare my personality to that of Eliot in Scrubs. I'm not really sure if that's a good thing, but I can see where they're coming from. I can be a bit wacky/kooky/wierd which i'm not always sure is a good trait haha.

17. I have asthma and have done since the age of three. I can remember being diagnosed. I have to take inhalers every day, but I wouldn't be me without it. Even if my best friend Han does sing the part from the Kylie Minogue song which goes "breathe, I know you find it hard but baby, breathe" to me...lots. 

18. I have serious issues about my nose. I never paid to attention to it untill maybe college when everyone seemed to have small little button noses. I wouldn't mind Ellie Goulding's nose because at least her's is small from the front, mine is like having a small planet on my face...enough about noses.

19. I used to get bullied for being short, I was very short back in the day, but in about year 10 I shot up to 5 ft 8 being taller than all of them mwahaaa, although I'd rather be short lol.

20. My first holiday away was with this bunch of girls (including me on the left) and another two not in the pic. We went to a little-ish town in Majorca called Santa Ponsa. It was amaaaazing!!!! I love my girlies crap loads. I've known some of them since reception (aged 4) and the others have joined along the way.

21. In school my friendship group consisted of about 25 people, during the summer between finishing school and starting college in 2009, we spent every day together, it has been the best summer of my life so far.

22. My favourite movies of all time are Toy story, Monsters Inc, The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins. I'm a massive kid.

23. I sometimes spend hours just messing with make-up...cue face like a lion...

24. I'm painfully shy, like painfully. When I was little, if there was a family gathering at my grans, I used to run in and hide behind the sofa. I love meeting new people and making friends but I sometimes find it really hard. It has definitely improved with age though. I care much less about what people think nowadays.

25. And finally...what else can I talk about except Lucyloves? Still not sure about the blog title...but I love my little blog, I've always wanted a YouTube channel but all beauty gurus seem to be so beautiful and they still look amazing with no make-up on. But my blog is my escape and I love reading other people's blogs. Even though I often think mine is pretty crappy, I just love writing about make up and clothes and things which I love stupidly lots. So please feel free to follow me *wink wink*

Aaaaand that is it. I rambled a bit didn't I haha, oh well. Hope you guys have all had an amazing Saturday and have a very lovely Sunday :)

Lots of love, Lucy xx
