Two New Looks For Spring…

Posted on February 26, 2015

Hi Guys!

I absolutely love fashion, and I’m now trying to add more fashion type posts to my blog – the thing I’m having a problem with though is the fact that I can’t take photos of myself! I don’t have anyone around that can take photos for me, so I need to look into a remote for my camera, and get a tripod! (If anyone can recommend a remote, please let me know) In the mean time I quite like putting looks and outfits together – on my kitchen floor for the time being! 🙂 Here are a couple I’ve done with some of the awesome new things I’ve acquired lately, I’ve put together one casual look and one for evening!

casual-accessories

I bought this lovely top in the F&F sale at Christmas, it was reduced to £6 or something and I wear it all the time, it’s slightly baggy so it covers everything up and I love the gold shoulder detail, it also has an exposed zip detail at the back. Wins all round!! I’m also obsessed with necklaces, and I love this pretty triangle stone necklace which I bought from Topshop ages ago, and I happened to recently stumble across in a drawer so I haven’t actually worn yet. For a toned down casual look I’ve started to wear these gorgeous Safari Boots from Calzados Victoria – they have the softest furry lining and I definitely prefer wearing them folded down rather than laced up to the top for a more relaxed look. I’m also part of Access All ASOS, they set up a secret santa blogger gift swap at Christmas, where they gave everyone involved a £15 voucher to spend on the site to buy gifts for someone else, what a lovely idea! Except my parcel never arrived 🙁 so they kindly gave me the voucher to buy something for myself, they’re good guys at ASOS! I treated myself to these awesome , a bargain at a tenner, and the scarf in the below pic 🙂 The pink and blue scarf is also from ASOS a looong time ago.

going-out-accessories

And this is my going out look! I’m in love with these amazing Cassie Cut out Ankle Boots from Online Avenue, they literally tick all the boxes for me – gold details, cut outs and a platform, check, check and check, and they’re a complete bargain at just over £20 too! I bought the  from ASOS as it just has such a lovely pattern. I literally live in scarves most of the year! I also included this pretty Crackle Stone & Rope Chain Necklace from  (sorry it’s not available any more) and if you look closely you’ll see it’s missing a stone, arrgh!! I always manage to damage or break my necklaces!

And lastly, I had to include my gorgeous new  from Baginc, ahh I can’t get enough of it! It’s pretty much a spot on dupe for the Chanel Boy which I’ve needed in my life and desperately lusted after for a long time now, but unfortunately my budget doesn’t quite fit with the £2.6k price tag, ouch! The beautiful Ingrid bag is made of real leather and apart from the lack of branding, which I really don’t mind (it also means it’s not a copy or fake) it’s SO similar to the Chanel. I think I can live without the designer version now, I can’t wait to take my Ingrid out!

I’d love to hear what you think of my two looks? And I promise I’ll have some full outfit posts coming up soon! xxx

A Pretty Winter Pastel Outfit with Wal-G!

Posted on November 1, 2014

walg-outfit

Hi Guys!

I was recently sent this pretty Hermoine Drape Cardigan from Wal-G at E-tailPR. It’s in a lovely duck egg blue and I thought it would look great as the basis for a pastel themed outfit! I’ve teamed it with an unbranded peach mini dress with gold sequinned peter pan collar and a few accessories! For the life of me I can’t remember where this frock came from, and there’s no label so it really is a mystery! Because the dress has a statement collar I decided not to add any jewellery to the look otherwise it may have been a bit OTT 🙂

I teamed the outfit with a clutch that I haven’t actually used yet but I love it, its from & Other Stories, it’s made of silk and has an awesome blurry digital print. I also added my favourite Topshop pointed flats in a bright coral, my Anastasia Beverley Hills Maya Mia Eyeshadow Palette – which I can’t get enough of at the moment, and a selection of pastel nail shades from OPI, Model’s Own and Essie.

I love that the Maya Mia palette comes with some ‘get the look’ cards, so you can copy them exactly or take inspiration if you wish. I’m looking forward to experimenting with this palette as soon as I get a chance!

I know this outfit is quite colourful but it somehow still seems to be a bit wintery to me, I don’t know, maybe it’s the cardigan cover up? Let me know what you think! I hope you enjoyed my post! xxx

The End of My Spending Ban! And a Little Haul…

Posted on August 4, 2014

august-haul

Hi Guys!

So you may or may not have known that I’ve been on a sending ban for the Month of July, it was really difficult to not buy any makeup at all but I did it! Obviously by the end of the month I was literally gagging to flex some plastic and treat myself so I went into Norwich on payday and bought a few bits! I had to go to the dentist anyway so I thought it’d be completely silly of me not to have a little look round the shops while I was there! So I met up with my BFF Kat and and headed into the city…

I had my heart set on Jo Malone and Tom Ford before we’d even left home so our first stop was, of course Jarrolds. We headed to Jo Malone first but I really wasn’t sure what I wanted so I let the assistant take the lead and help me, and guess what? I’m not gong to tell you what I bought! Ha ha! I’m going to save that for another post 🙂 Ohh what a tease I am! I did buy a couple of lovely things though and they’re just so amaze I wanted to write a post just for them. Don’t worry I’ll have it done in the next couple of days! 😉 Ok so after Jo Malone we stopped at Tom Ford and I had to drag myself away before I maxxed out my card, which I could have done very easily – no purchases there I’m afraid, not this time anyway. We then headed to Chapelfield where I popped in Superdrug and picked up one of the new Revlon Colorstay Moisture Lip Stains, again all will be revealed all in another post but you can see from the picture which colour it is at least. I think I subconsciously went for this as I desperately wanted a Tom Ford lipstick and the packaging is kind of similar??

After a brief ‘is the baby coming right now?’ moment of panic with Kat who’s due on August the 11th, we then headed over to House of Fraser for a quick nose around and I found myself in the Yankee Candle section, funny that! They had a few new candles out, all with a distinct Autumnal feel which I wasn’t quite ready for yet. I’m still in full summer mode so I bought Pink Sands and Summer Scoop, which are both lovely summery scents. Summer Scoop especially caught my eye nose as smells just like strawberry ice cream. I did in the end also go for Amber Moon from the new Indian Summer collection, which again is lovely with scents of Amber, Patchouli and Sandalwood.

Kat then had to go home and I had a dentist appointment too at this point (the whole point of my trip into Norwich) and only after my appointment did I realise it was late night shopping, what a result!! So I headed back to Chapelfield for another look around and picked up some cleansing cloths from Boots as I seem to have lost all four of mine. H&M was my next stop as I always pick up every day basics from there such as their long vest tops which always come in a vast array of colours and I grabbed this awesome chain print tshirt, it was only £7.99 too, bargain! On the way back to the station I quickly stopped at Topshop for a peek and spotted these awesome pretty pink flats – I am partial to a pointed flat, and at only £16 it would’ve been rude to say no!

So that’s about it for my first spree of the month! I feel it was rather successful!

I hope you enjoyed my post and keep an eye out for my Jo Malone post coming up soon! xx

London Shopping Haul!

Posted on June 2, 2014

shopping bags

Well hello!

Happy Monday all! I thought it was about time I updated you on what I actually bought on my girl’s day out in London. You may have noticed I was saving all the juicy details for another post! I can’t believe It was almost a month ago now that I went! As it was a special birthday treat for us all, I did end up spending a fair bit! (oops)

london shopping haul

So this is my little haul!

I bought these silver chunky  from Topshop, and a couple of necklaces. I love Topshop for shoes and jewellery but often don’t splurge as they can be pretty expensive, and often their shoes don’t fit me very well (due to me being an awkward size 5.5) These have buckles on top and around the ankle though so they fit like a glove, they were the last pair in the shop, so it was obviously meant to be! I also saw this amazing Mermaid Makeup Bag and it instantly caught my eye so I had to buy it. I’m pretty sure it’s made of real mermaids…

In Selfridges where we spent most of our afternoon, I paid a visit to the Fragrance Lab where I picked up an amazing bespoke perfume, and I also took a good look around the Food Hall for some gifts for my other half and little boy Fred. I bought Ollie some special chilli crisps and ‘Beyond Insanity’ chilli sauce, as he’s into that sort of stuff. And Fred had a big box of Jelly Belly Jelly Beans.

I just realised I forgot to show my H&M purchase – a Wraparound Skirt, which was definitely my bargain of the day at only £3.99! So that’s my spending done for a while now… (yeah right, until next time)

I hope you enjoyed my post! xxx

Winter Outfit Wish List!

Hi Guys!

Today I’ve made a winter wishlist of some of the gorgeous clothing and accessories I’ve been coveting lately! I’ve decided to go for a bit more of a punky feel with leather look trousers and a faux fur jacket – I love the contrast in textures. I’ve also added lots of gold detailing for a luxe finish.

The new Sarah Angold for Freedom limited edition jewellery collection so up my street.  I would describe it as a melting pot of graphic shapes and modern materials with art deco styling. I love the strong shapes and colours (especially the earrings bottom right of the picture)

And with a price range between £30 and £60 you can snap up a stunning designer piece without breaking the bank!

New Jewellery Storage!

Posted on April 29, 2013

Hi Guys!

So here is my old jewellery storage, a silver jewellery tree (don’t worry that’s just my friend Boris guarding my jewels!!) As you can see the tree is getting pretty full!

I decided to upgrade to a distressed metal wall storage with hooks from one of my favourite shops, Rockett St George!

I’m really pleased with this storage solution, the wire frame of the rack means you can fix jewellery to it easily – my friend has all her  on hers! And it also offers a really attractive display. If you have the space, another good storage idea is a hat stand, I have one at my parents house as I don’t have space for it. I hang bags and belts from the bottom hooks and scarves and jewellery from the top hooks! xxx
