Some of my favourite records..

For years I've wanted to own a record player but I've never really had much room for one and I've always been a little poor to buy records however this year my dad got me one for my birthday and since then I've ended up with 20+ records. Lets put it this way my birthday was back in March so yeah I've got quite a few records in a couple of months haha. I thought I'd share a few of my favourites with you all though, it's not only listening to them that I love but how pretty some of them look.
Life In The European Theatre
This record originally belonged to my dad, he then gave it to my uncle who gave it to me which is pretty cool. What I really like about this record is that half of the royalties went to projects against nuclear arms, the whole album is filled with bands like The Jam, Echo &The Bunnymen and The Clash, you get the idea. It's a pretty cool record to put on in the background but mostly I enjoy it 'cause of how old it is and how its kinda been passed around my family.
Nightmare Anatomy
This album makes me feel so ridiculously nostalgic, theres only about 400 of these pressed and I'm forever happy I have one. This album is just so solid, I loved every song on it, it takes me right back to being 13. I love how the vinyl itself is baby pink, its such a stark contrast to the music. If you're into your emo /alt rock and haven't heard of Aiden you've got to go check them out. This record is perfect for those days where I need something a little heavy.
Awesome Mix Vol. 1
This is hands down probably my all time favourite film soundtrack. If I'm feeling sad I can just pop this on and within a few songs I'll be pure happy. It's filled with so many feel good songs like Come &Get Your Love, Ain't No Mountain High Enough and Hooked On A Feeling. It's seriously just a perfect album for a shitty day cause it makes you smile, plus Guardians Of The Galaxy is one of the best films EVER.
The Sound Of Music, OST.
Do I really need to give a reason for this one? The Sound Of Music is one of my favourite musicals, I remember watching it when I was super small and loving everything about it, when I was like 8 my gran bought me it for Christmas on DVD. We did it as a drama show in school, everything about it I love and it holds a lot of memories. My gran happened to have the original soundtrack on vinyl from when it came out, the sleeve is well worn which obviously shows how loved it is and I'm just super grateful that she gave me it.
Finally we have what is probably my favourite vinyl, it's actually beautiful. When I got my record player I knew this was one album I needed to rebuy on vinyl, much to my heart break it was a fortune everywhere since it was limited. However I managed to find one and I pretty much sat by the door waiting for it, I spent forever looking at it once it came because the inside is beautiful all the artwork ever. I mean I love the album itself it's forever my favourite by Biffy but the artwork and detail in this is what makes it one of my favourites. 

So there we have my favourite records, are you shocked I didn't include any Fall Out Boy? Cause I am haha, but seriously these records are amazing and if you haven't heard any of them you've really got to give them a listen.
Do you have a record player? If not would you get one?

Keeping Kitties Healthy..*

Having two cats to keep healthy is waaaaay harder than I expected. Weasley is so low maintenance and will eat whatever I give him, however Fleur with being a kitten needs feeding more often, needs plenty nutrients and for some reason flat out refuses to eat any dry food which makes me want to tear my hair out. Weasley also has this little issue where he's pretty much the size of a small dog so really I should be looking for more healthy or balanced foods for him. Thus leading to an internet search. I've seen a lot on grain free diets for humans but never even thought it would exist for pets but it does!
Grain free Cat food sounds perfect for Weasley and Fleur. Being grain free means it's perfect for Weasley since he needs to lose a little weight but it's still good for Fleur to each because it's still full to the brim with nutrients and protein, it probably even tastes better than usual cat biscuits too since the carbs in it are usually from sweet potatoes! Looking into grain free food could be super beneficial for your pet, it could help give them a more balanced and healthy diet, especially if they have funny tummys and don't react very well to your regular store bought pet foods. You don't have to break the bank treating your furbabies to grain free treats you can get them for the same price if not cheaper than your usual pet brands from Feedem.
I probably put more time and effort into feeding my cats the best food than I do myself, I'm curious to see how changing their diets to grain free dry foods will effect them. Weasley suffers from cat acne (yup this is actually a thing!) and I'm hoping a change to his diet will help clear it up some. 

Have you tried any diet specific products for your pet?

With a friend as good as you, who needs enemies?

I am sooooo out of outfit post posing / photos it is ridiculous. I think I took about 70 and I only find these 3 somewhat acceptable (what is my life seriously.) I'm absolutely in love with this dress, I bought it on a complete whim in Primark and I've wanted to live in it since. It was my outfit of choice for Leeds fest and it was perfect, the Friday was ridiculously warm but wearing a dress kept me so cool. I don't know how it's taken me 6 years to realise dresses are the way forward when it comes to festival fashion. I teamed it with Docs and high bunches because I was too lazy to do Panda buns. The whole outfit felt slightly grungy and I loved it. I tried to go for a grungy/laid back photo style to match my outfit but I'm not sure it worked however I'm just happy to be back to blogging about outfits and fashion again, I can't wait to share more stuff with you guys. - You can read my post about Leeds fest here too, it's got some photos of some very pretty men!

What outfits do you prefer to wear to a festival?
