October Playlist


October PlaylistAnother month nearly gone by, another month full of new music to my ears. In terms of music, this month was pretty darn exciting. I mentioned briefly earlier in my Going Out Makeup Look post here that I went to see One Direction this month. Again I won’t go too much into it because I will be mentioning it again in my next post but it did mean that 1D were top of my list this month. More excitedly they gave us another little spoiler to their album with two new tracks; Infinity and Perfect which are both so good and have been blaring out my speakers for the whole month. Their support act Jamie Lawson also made my list after hearing his #1 track Wasn’t Expecting That which is just the most beautiful yet emotional song I have ever heard, totally worth a listen for a good cry! Two of my favourite bands came back onto the scene this month, the first being The 1975 with their new song Love Me which is incredible and so different to their usual sound but I am loving the funked up beat. Also 5SOS came back with a new album, whilst I haven’t fully gave the album a proper listen I am still loving a couple of their new songs. Also on my list include new songs from Little Mix, Adam Levine and of course the killer comeback tune Hello from Adele.

Monthly Round-up: June


Monthly RoundupSo you may be wondering what on earth is going on here so basically I thought I would introduce a new monthly feature to Styled by Lauren. I thought I would add something a little more personal to the blog and let you all know what I got up to during the month. So the month of June was quite a lazy and slow month if I am honest. It was my first full month off from uni and to be honest I did what a student does best and spent my time doing nothing! So my month did mostly consist of online shopping and blogging (about my shopping!).

Probably the most noteworthy event that I attended during the month was of course going to see 5 Seconds of Summer which I mentioned in my May Playlist post. I had already seen them before although as a support act so I got to see them for the first time being the headline act and they were incredible. I had such a good time and would snap up tickets again in a heartbeat!

Also, I received my uni exam results the other day too! I only sat one exam but I was super happy to see that I had passed it which was such a blessing since I had a really bad feeling about it. My first year is now over and I have passed all my classes ready for second year, how scary!

As I already said I did a bit of shopping. I could probably lose the word ‘bit’ in that sentence. I am going away on holiday next month so I picked up a lot of clothes to wear in the sunshine. Sneak peak above! I did pick up a lot of black and white pieces due to the fact that I would be able to wear them a lot more when I am not on holiday too and also I just like black and white clothes haha! I also picked up a few new beauty bits too which should make their way around the blog some time so look out for that.

I realise that I am rambling on a bit here so just to close I just have to rave about how good the lemon curd flapjacks are from Graze! I may have to find a recipe, future blog post… who knows!?

Catch up with June posts: New favourite cleanser, Holy grail foundation and concealer, 5 great beauty buys under £5

What did you get up to this month? Did you like the new monthly feature?

May Playlist


May PlaylistWe are reaching the sixth month of the year… Woah we’re half way there… sorry couldn’t resist. Anyway this month has been a bit of a mix again in terms of my music playlist. As my first year at uni has finally concluded *hallelujah* I haven’t needed to dig out my earphones too much but I have definitely had some background music on the go. This month I have turned back to a favourite of mine: 5 Seconds of Summer or 5SOS. The Australian band released their debut album last year and its hella good. They’ve got quite the Busted style vibe going on, taking me well back to my grand childhood. I have also switched them on as a little preparation for next week as rather excitedly I am going to see them live, woo! I have seen them before when they supported 1D but now I am returning to see them as the main act. I’m pretty damn excited especially since I bought my tickets like a year ago! Also, I have rekindled my love for Mumford and Sons listening to some of their older tracks as well as a little listen into their new stuff. Its pretty good as you would expect if you are a fan of their music. There is also a few other tunes thrown in for good measure which I have also been loving this month.
