This was what I wore yesterday but I decided not to post it in the end as I felt it was a little weird after the subject of yesterdays post. I cant even begin to start replying to everyones comments and thoughts (I promise I am giving it a go!) It really means a lot knowing that people understand where I'm coming from and it's honestly the best and most comforting feeling in the world knowing that my video has helped people in some sort of way. It just reinforces the message that we aren't alone in feeling lonely sometimes. So many people from all walks of life feel sad or alone at some point! I just cant begin to express how much it means to me that you guys are all such loyal and amazing followers. I'm so glad I decided to speak up and talk about my feelings as it's helped me come to terms with how I feel and to be honest, for the first time in a long time I actually felt like I really wasn't alone and was connecting with people on a whole new level.

The outfit was just a bit of a throw on and go outfit. Although Im pretty I say that about all of the outfits I've ever posted. I bought the Batman top from Primark last weekend, I think it was around £8. Im not a huge Batman fan if I'm honest but I'm into the sporty kinda fit of baseball tops and I like bold graphic prints. Oh dear, I've become one of those people who wear t-shirts of bands/things I don't actually like that much. At least I haven't quite got to the stages of wearing one of those t-shirts with "Totes Amaze" quite yet! (although I did consider it) I just wore some jeans I've had from Primark for about 3 years and really need to be replaced. These were the only trousers I had during a long period of time but that has changed rather quickly. I think I've worn trousers everyday this week so far! And finally of course I had to get some more wear out of my new favourite Topshop Coat so threw it on over it. I just cant get over how much I like the fit and the cool vibes. It's just something else. Love.

I went to Ikea yesterday to get new things for my bedroom. I've decided to redecorate it a bit because it's not quite how I want it. It currently is a bit too miss matched. I might do some sort of room decor haul/tour at the weekend if anyone is interested. Gotta put all the furniture and stuff together first! DIYMLRS is my alter-ego, because believe it or not I'm really good at building things and fixing things. I have a lot of skills when it comes to making stuff!

I also have a new iMac on it's way to me as my Macbook Air has given up on me. I've only had it a year but it's slow, bloated and the screen doesn't work any more throwing colours off. I've had to get it on an interest free credit card with the hopes of spreading the cost over a period of time (I have a Barclay Card Interest Free Credit card & disclaimer: Do your research before getting a interest free card! I don't recommend getting credit cards unless you can afford to pay back at least the minimum and understand how they work). I did this when I bought my current Macbook and literally have just finished paying it off. Sigh. At least my Macbook has served me well over the past year! Stupid Apple making desirable products yet never last. Silly me for getting sucked into the hype. Oh well, I'm hoping it'll help me be able to make better content, edit better and learn new skills. I've been really getting into videos and video editing and I'm determined to get a new hobby. Film maker Melrose? Maybe!

  4. I love your top, I have a similar one from Forever21 which I wear a lot, I think i'm going to start buying Primark jeans as i've just bought another pair of Topshop Leigh Jeans after my last pair faded after a few months and they're just not worth the money! x

  16. DIYMLYRS could be your superhero alias? get it on a tshirt haha. outfit is awesome, although your feelings towards batman warrant a visit from bane to sort you out. seriously, batman is the BEST superhero! from the camp adem west batman of 60s, even the arguably questionable tim burton batmans of the 90s, and nolan's revival = masterpiece. /end outrage!

    glad you are feeling better after your video :) it really got under my skin and made me think i should be much more open and honest about my feelings of loneliness too. i think sometimes you get so good at hiding feelings (even from yourself) and you forget to show them and let them out.. which would make you feel better and less disconnected. ive thanked you before but thanks again for doing the video, it's really had me thinking and helped me accept my feelings a bit more but also want to express and confront them a bit more.

    good luck with DIY! im actually like the opening of casualty episode when it comes to that kinda thing, power tools are deadly weapons in my hands D:

  19. I got an iMac a couple of months ago, after my MacBook of four years gave up on me. So far it's been amazing, and I use it a lot for music production, film editing and stuff for my blog. You won't be disappointed! It's SO much faster and you have so much screen space to do everything - plus it's bound to last longer because you're not hauling it about everywhere!

  21. If your mac is under warranty if you take it to the apple store they should fix it for you. If the screen is broken they can just replace the screen, often for free.

  28. Love this outfit! Yes, it's true, Apple's products don't always last very long! But it's important to take care of them, for example to avoid it becoming slow and annoying, you could use an external hardrive for all your files, meaning your laptop would actually be pretty empty all the time (:

  52. i love this outfit! unfortunately though, i don't think i'm quite cool enough to pull of such a casual and 'old school' outfit! i really like the pieces individually (especially the bomber jacket and beanie) as well as the outfit as whole! also super jealous of you getting an imac! i'm currently having to deal with a 3 year old toshiba that is dying slowly - honestly, it's the bane of my life! but, luckily, my parents have agreed to buy me a macbook for university. it'll just be the wait now that'll be tough! again, lovely lovely outfit! :) X
