BARGAIN: Good as new Dr Martens for sale!! As seen in OOTDs

I am selling my green Dr Marten 1460 boots on eBay because they are a bit too big for me and I have reached the point where I no longer believe that I will grow into them and I should really sell them before I wear them any more.

They have appeared in a few blog posts of my outfits but I have only worn them a few times and only for short periods. They are pretty much as good as new!

There are some slight crumples in the leather but that is only where it is sagged and this would not be visible when being worn, especially if your feet are the right size! Other than that, the leather is in gorgeous condition and so is all the other parts! I forgot to include a picture of the soles – but these are perfectly clean with NO stains, marks, scuffs and wear.

So, grab a bargain! These are £105 new but I am selling them at a buy-it-now price of £85 or you can bid if you’d like to save a bit more! By the way, I am selling them with 2 pairs of brand new laces – black and yellow.

Just click the pictures above to find them on eBay or click the link below. Remember, they are available for a limited time only – 7 days and 22 hours left at the current moment (till the 5th of March).

Long time no see

The end of 2014 got quite hectic for me and unfortunately my posting habits on f.stop suffered as a result. I regret that it has taken me so long to publish a new update, but hopefully 2015 will see a new lease of life for this here blog.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas – if you celebrate it – and a lovely start to the new year yesterday. I’ve had a busy but fairly enjoyable winter break and I’m here to share with you some recent photography endeavours from the last two weeks or so.

The images above were taken one lovely foggy morning in December, although the fog is less prominent in the images than it was in real life.

You can see from the first images that we just about witnessed the break of day, although ideally we would have got there even earlier.

old mills 3 old mills 1 old mills 4 old mills 2A few weeks ago I took a few pictures from some old mills and I thought they complimented the other wintery images featured on this post well, so there you go.

I would just like to mention that, unfortunately, I have been having a lot of trouble using Pixlr lately, which is where I normally combine my images into collages on the computer. I’m not keen on any alternatives I have found so my photographs are singular. This means that I cannot display as many, so apologies for that, and it also means that they are more accessible for others. Therefore, I have used a watermark.

I don’t like the idea of watermarking my images, it seems rather sad if you ask me. However, I am considering putting my images in stock libraries, so they must be protected on my blog.

Nevertheless, I hope you enjoyed this post. Wishing you all a lovely first week of 2015!


Impromptu Excursions

Today I’m here with a load of photos that were actually taken about a week ago, but I’ve had so much trouble with computers lately that they have only just found their way on to my blog!

Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy looking at them. They’re from a little walk I went on with my sister. It was a really fun day (until we went the wrong way and got lost).

Apologies that I haven’t been as active as I want to be; I’m a very busy person but I’m not giving up on this here blog! Also, sorry if the stream of pictures in this post is a bit too on the lengthy side; I normally use Pixlr to make space-saving collages with my photos but I’ve been having lots of technical difficulties with the website.

I hope you all had a lovely October and wish you all the best for a happy November.

There’s no stopping f.stop

happy 2nd birthday f.stop

Two years ago today, I decided to create my very own blog. A place to share my thoughts and photos in areas I loved, and continue to love.

Two years later, I’m still here. And hopefully, another two years later, I’ll still be here!

I really hope that my blog is always improving, and always reaching new people. I appreciate every follower and with no support, I would certainly be less inspired to post.

Thank you so very much to every one who helps me, I hope you enjoy reading my blog just as much as I enjoy writing it.


(I am aware that this post is rather similar to last years, but at least the image is mine this time! One year I might do a post that’s a little more festive, haha, sorry it’s not very exciting)

Back to school is sure not cool

But you know what is cool? The fact that Cow Vintage, an amazing shop in Manchester, is relocating and all the old stock is in clearance! Oh happy days. I may not have been keen to welcome September but cheap clothes are always fab.

Especially in the form of two vintage Ralph Lauren tops for £5 each!! I’m wearing one of them today and I love it…

IMG_3504You may also notice that may hair has changed colour. I had to get rid of the electric blue dip dye for school, so I went ‘Cosmic Blue’ (by Schwarzkopf) instead. However, the blue sheen has washed out and left my locks pretty much just black.


My jeans are Topshop Mom jeans. My belt is another buy from the Cow sale. I absolurely love this style of old belts, but it can be a challenge to find one that fits since I usually punch extra holes in my belts – which isn’t possible with this type – but I happened to find one that was the perfect fit and cost me only £1! It’s vintage Coach, another good find!


My shoes are a new pair of Dr Martens, called Polley shoes, that I got for school. They are so cute and I love wearing them at the weekend as well. Here I’ve paired them with some zig-zag Topshop dress socks.

polley docs IMG_3583 My sister has also dyed her hair, ‘Cyber Purple’ also by Schwarzkopf for anyone who wants to know.

IMG_3585Her shoes are also Dr Martens – the classic 1461’s. I used to wear a pair of these for school and still have mine too, they’re brill. She’s wearing them with a sweet little pair of frilly Topshop socks.

The jacket is one of mine – Morgan denim from a charity shop. Her top and leggings are H&M.


I hope you like that little ‘back-to-school- themed outfit post. Have a nice week at school or work!
