Outfit of the Day: Summertime

Monday, 28 July 2014

Today I took a walk through my home village with my friend, stopping for lunch and an ice cream on the way back. This was my outfit of the day, and I wasn't even cold - English summer can be particularly unpredictable, but recently for the better!

Kimono: Urban Outfitters
Top: American Eagle Outfitters
Shorts: Topshop
Watch: Marc Jacobs
Necklace: Forever 21
Bag: Free People
Shoes: Toms

Music of the Month: Max Milner

Monday, 28 July 2014

Now, take a second to look back to 2012 (that long ago?! Yes, that long ago). In particular, season 1 of the (at the time) new TV series; The Voice. Remember? Does that ring a bell... Anyone? Well, anyway... I remember watching the series, interested in the unique basis of the TV show: a singing competition that focused solely on the voice, rather than this known 'whole package' artists are meant to have today. However, one artist stole the entirety of my interest during the audition process; Max Milner. He performed a mix up of Eminem's Lose Yourself and The Beatle's Come Together, and I was hooked. I remember downloading the song, playing it on repeat, trying to show my friends just how talented this guy was. And then, I lost interest in the TV show, and slowly forgot about the different finalists... Even Max.

So, this month, whilst I was scrolling through Twitter, I was surprised to see Max Milner sitting in my 'Who to Follow' box. Hey! That's that guy from The Voice who you were kinda sorta obsessed with! Remember???!!!! I was surprised to come across him two years later, but then realised he'd released new music. How did I not know about this? So, I jumped on to Spotify and gave his 2013 The Acoustic Deleted EP a listen. I was hooked yet again. The music is raw and the lyrics are great, and now after listening to his other EP, Man Overboard, I can say I'm yet again listening to his music on repeat.

My personal favourites from Milner? It has to be Sex Sheets and While I'm Young. Or maybe Like Me Slightly as well... Ok, don't make me choose a favourite, just choose your own!

Return to Blogging...

Monday, 28 July 2014

It's been more than a year since I last posted on this blog... A year! Ironic how I also stated that, and I quote, 'I'm going to try and update more often, I promise'... But let us not forget that I snuck in a little '(sort of...)!' at the end, just to make sure that if I did fail at this - which evidently I did - I could not be held against my promise.

Anyway, let's keep the past in the past. I'm back! I've given my blog an entire makeover, and I'm loving it! I've decided to change up what I'm doing on here, and hopefully that will keep me focused. With my interests ranging from photography, to fashion, to writing, I hope I can incorporate all three of those passions into this blog.

Over the past year, a lot of things have changed. Looking back, I can see that last year I wasn't particularly into this whole 'blogging' thing, but now, I've got a new perspective on it. I see it as somewhere I can express how I feel or even talk about what I'm currently loving - from matters such as music to new trends.

So that's all from me...

Out With The Old... In With The New!

Tuesday, 26 March 2013

Hey bloggers!
It's been a while... 4 months and 15 days to be precise! So I've made some changes to my blog, firstly the name has been changed to 'Totally Roisin'! I don't know why, but something didn't quite feel right about my old one and I'm liking this new one much more!

So, back to what's happened since November. Back then, it seemed like the end of my high school life was ages away, but now, it's less than two months! I can't quite believe it really, it's crazy (and bloody great!) to think I'll be leaving there after 5 years! So yep, that's all from me for now. I know I said I'd try to keep to this whole Blogspot thing... And let's be honest, I haven't really. But I'm going to try and update more often, I promise (sort of...)!

That's all for now, bye!

A Typical, But I Guess Not So Typical, 'Roisín' Weekend

Sunday, 11 November 2012

Hey guys!

So guess what I invested in? Only the Blogger app for my iPhone! So that's why I'm blogging late tonight, because I'm just writing whilst in bed, I have school tomorrow and since I wake up at 6:55, and it's already 11:16 PM, I should probably get to sleep soon. So anyway, let's get on to my weekend.

On Saturday I was faced with the evil realisation that I had to start revising for my mocks soon, so what did I do?

What else could I do that seemed productive to my parents but involved no school work?

I tidied my room.

Yep, and I started at 3 o'clock in the afternoon and ended at midnight... That's just how messy it was.

Then today, I filmed all of my footage for my media final production piece and edited about three quarters of it. Media is something I take great interest in, more the physical side, which relates to how I want to take film studies and photography at A Level, so it wasn't that bad a day. Apart from the fact that I couldn't find any software which would allow me to play a video clip in reverse, so if anyone knows of anyone, please leave a comment! (Preferably free).

And one of my favourite shows is back... I'm a Celebrity! Yay! I'm already loving Ant and Dec's typical puns and banter, how I love those two.

So that's all for today folks, talk soon.

Roisín's Wish List -

Friday, 9 November 2012

Hello fellow bloggers!
So I'd like to introduce you to something I'm going to make a regular thing here on my blog... It is:

Yep, my Wish List... So these 'Wish List' posts will specify to either a type of clothing or a store. And this week we have....

I love this top, the studded detail and olive colour are gorgeous!

I am in need of a chunky, knit cardigan and I think this is the one for me! Everything about it is lovely, from the wine colour to the oversized style!

I personally have an obsession with studs, so the studded detail on this vest makes it even better! I would team this vest with a long sleeved top and some edgy combat boots.

I. Love. This. Sweater.
Skulls, flowers and light grey = Happy Roisín.

I really like the cold shoulder style and the studded detail works perfectly! Out of the three colours, personally I'd go for the black, because I like the 'edgier' look.

The colours, the pattern, the style... Love! This dress is so pretty, the length is just right and the bralet top of the dress is gorgeous.

As you can tell from the previous points, I've recently fallen in love with wine coloured clothing, so I'd definitely go for that colour from the three options. I find that sweaters are a comfortable yet stylish, and the studded shoulders are a perfect addition.

I just love, love, love this skirt! The velvet material, the skater style, the burgundy colour, it's just perfect! I would team it with a tucked in, basic white fitted tee and I know that this'll be on my Christmas list this year.

Skinny jeans are a staple piece for anyone's wardrobe, and the hazelnut colour is gorgeous! I would pair them with my studded slipper flats or Converse.


Just An Intro From Moi...

Friday, 9 November 2012

So this is my first ever Blogspot post, ooh, what an influential  time in my life! So basically, I wanted to give you guys a little introduction to myself, or take a read to your right in my little bio box for a quick summary.

So my name's Roisín (Ro-Sheen, not raisin, hoisin, rosin, believe me, the list of pronunciations I've heard in my life can continue)  and I live in England, in what I guess could be considered the boring area... Yep, sorry to let you down, but I don't live in the awesome city of London, no, much more up North... *Sigh*

I've been living where I live for more than ten years now and recently turned 16... I'd say for the past two years I have been contemplating as to whether I should make a YouTube channel, and told myself I would when I turned 16... And I did, but it didn't quite go to plan.

So I turned 16 and I made my channel (in fact, I think I made it before my birthday), I filmed some videos... But they never seemed good enough. I wondered for a while as to why I can't say the words I find so easily to write when I'm sitting in front of a camera. Now, don't get me wrong here, I will upload YouTube videos one day, maybe when I've left the hell hole known as high school, but for now, I think I'll remain unidentifiable on my blog.

Now back to moi's life, I don't believe that's correct French, but there's another fact about me for you, I'm awful at French, even though I have been learning it since the start of year 7, yeah... That's right, I started learning it in 2008 and the most I know is 'je m'appelle Roisín'... Maybe some more I guess, but that's my one well known line.

Anyway, (sorry, I get easily sidetracked), this blog is where I'll share my interests. Whether it's what music I've been listening to recently, fashion which I've found catching my eye or even the food I've been eating, hence the name of 'Totally Roisin', it's nothing in particular, it's just... Well, just me.

I don't know if Blogspot will be what I've been looking for... But hopefully it is.
So yeah, stay tuned for future posts.
