♥ Morning Throwback! ♥

Hey guys! I'll be sat at my desk working on my dissertation aaaall day today so I'll share the post I tried to get up earlier in the week when iPhoto was playing up...
   I don't watch TV very much at all, mainly because I just don't have the time but I like to watch something fun while I eat if I'm alone, usually a YouTube video, The Hills or sometimes I go for an old TV show or film for nostalgia sake and recently I've been loving So Little Time! .

I used to love this show as a child - I was obsessed with Mary-Kate and Ashley. I thought they were just so pretty and stylish and cool and perfect. Apparently my boyfriend loved them at this age too but in an very different way!

Hi guys!

Hi guys! Sorry for the late post, I have been cramming uni work into every single spare minute of my day so it's been hard to find time to blog but I'm managing! I made it to the gym again this morning - woohoo! I managed to get up at 7.30 and go and work out for an hour - I'm super proud :D. I decided to try the cross trainer rather than the treadmill today as they say it's good to 'surprise' your body but I find that tiring so I decided to distract myself with a book and it totally worked!!! 

I'm (not) reading about six books at the moment but I chose Lauren Conrad's Sweet Little Lies from her LA Candy series as it's light and girly and puts me in a good mood, plus reading about skinny Hollywood TV stars makes me wanna go harder and get my butt in shape too!

I have this fantasy...

Helloooo! Do you remember this post where I was trying to decide which present to have for Valentines Day. Well I finally decided and here it is!!!

I went with the Britney Spears Fantasy perfume in the end as since I made that post my lovely friend Amber is sending me The Balm Nude Tude palette which is similar to the Urban Decay Naked 2 so I may not need want both.

♫ I knew you were trouble... ♫

Outfit tiiiiiiime! :D I've had this Taylor Swift song in my head for a week now so I decided to style an outfit based around it - kinda grungy looking but also polished at the same time. Bit of an oxymoron lol.  I just realised I still have yet to upload all of the haul videos featuring most of the things in this outfit... Uni work is just kicking my but right now! I'll get them up asap so keep an eye on my YouTube channel!

I really really like how these pictures came out, the photographer Claudia is a genius! Here is a link to her flickr, please check it out and don't forget to 'favourite' some of her cool shots!


I'm B-B-B-Back!

Hi guys! Really sorry I didn't get a post up yesterday. I wrote one and took photos but when I tried to import them from my camera iPhoto was not playing ball. It was just a breakfast post, I spent the entire day inside doing university work so you didn't miss out on any outfit shots!

Today I braved the freezing cold and met someone to shoot some outfit pictures which was pretty cool as she has a DSLR camera so the quality should be great! I'll post them as soon as she sends them over to me. This shoot was soooo cold like as cold as the one I did in the snow but I really like the outfit so I think it'll be worth it ;). In the meantime here is a sneak peek!

This is my "I'm freezing!" face!
I gotta go run around and tidy my flat now then head out to a lecture and then back again for another night of uni work. Fun fun fun...Catch u later!

Lovin' Lilac!

Hey guys! I got so carried away reading other blogs this evening I forgot to update my own lol! It's so inspirational flicking through other bloggers' cute outfit photos. I'm working really hard to amp up my blog with cool outfit photos and interesting life posts so thank YOU so much for reading it!

Now for a post of my own!... Tonight I'm talking about my favourite pick-me-up - pretty nail polish :). I'm loving my new ones from Barry M. I've been staring at my nails non-stop since I did them on Friday night :). We had sweets at the work event yesterday and I realised they matched my nails!

I've been on the hunt for a cute pastel colour for ages and I've finally found one!

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there!!! I got my mum this adorable teapot and teacup for her birthday last week so for Mother's Day I sent her a matching plate to add to the collection and a personalised Me To You bear card - we love Me To You in my family!

She loved the tea set so much that the next day she sent me the following photo ...

Would you go to prom with me?

Hi guys, this is what I've been wearing at work today! We decided to throw a prom sale event and get dressed up and put balloons everywhere, and there's sweets. I think I've eaten more sweets than I've handed out lol. It's working though as people keep trying on the dresses we're wearing. Sometimes a hanger doesn't do an item justice. You need to see how it fits on the body. Three people have bought the navy dress so far. I looove it, it's so classy yet sexy and flattering. I've only just put the coral one on so we'll see how many I sell by 7!

GO me! GO me! GO me!!!

Guess where I've been this morning!!! Yup! I actually made it to the gym! I'm so proud, getting up and starting my day with a workout makes me feel so organised and like I'm on the right path to sorting my life out lol if you know what I mean.

I'm back now and have just had a lovely lemony shower :).

Time to unwind... Seriously!!!!

Hello all, so after my very stressful day I decided to take the evening to relax and unwind Big Time! I've already posted here to show you guys how I like to unwind when I have some downtime but tonight I took it to the next level! This is what my evening looked like...
1-2. Chocolates and wine from my sweetheart dad! ♥ 3. My new Barry M nail polishes ♥ 4. A shower using my favourite honey body wash ♥  5. Burning my favourite Cinammon nut bread candle. ♥ The Hills! ♥ Chicken noodle soup, chicken, egg and rice ♥ Quality time with my lovely boyfriend ♥ Bedtime with a cute book!
I'm gonna get some shut-eye now! I'm planning on getting up early to go the gym before work but I never usually manage it so we shall see...

My head is going to explode...

Hey guys, I have the world's WORST headache. Like thumping, pounding about-to-explode type headache. It's defo stress related, I just submitted the essay I had due online TWO MINUTES before the deadline! Always the way with me... Actually that's not true, I used to be really good at getting my work done early and to a high standard but then I suddenly lost all motivation to do uni work. I think part of that was because I realised that I want to work in fashion rather than something academic so it sometimes feels like "What is the point of me getting a degree???. I'd rather put the time and effort into forging a career in something creative...

A photo from my boyfriend's graduation last year. I hope I get to go to mine

Missing my pink pony!

Hello guys! This bright outfit has definitely helped my mood :D That and haribos hehe (I love those little things!). It's still drizzling a bit and is quite grey and yucky outside so hopefully I brightened someone's day! I like this outfit for wearing to Uni because I think the shirt smartens up the boots without making the look too fussy or stuffy. In the end I think the whole look has a down-to-earth yet polished jockey/farmer/English country girl theme!

Welly Boots: by Hunter from
Shirt: by Splash Fashions (bought on holiday)
Watch: Michael Kors MK5055
Everything else is from past seasons, sorryyyyyy!


Under the Weather

Hiiiii, I'm not feeling my best today but I'm trying to stay positive. My wisdom tooth is coming through and it really hurts a LOT. I keep waking up in the night from the pain, it feels like my gums are being ripped apart - which I guess they essentially are. Also I just realised that on top of the essay I have due in TOMORROW I also need to hand in a draft of my entire dissertation by Monday really or there won't be time for me to re-draft it over Easter... Stress stress stress! Still, could be worse. I have all day today and tomorrow to do the essay, all day Monday to do the dissertation and I have a good feeling about this work so I'm going to plod on. It's raining cats n dogs today so I've been wearing my pink Hunter wellies. I'll do an outfit post later if I get enough of my essay done and earn a break :)

Black and Blue...

Hi guys! This is what I'm wearing today! I had a class and then I have work this afternoon (I work at two clothing stores) so I wanted to be comfy and warm because work is always freezing! Having said that it's actually not that cold today so I can finally wear my leather jacket instead of my huge fur coat - yay! Hope you like it! Don't forget to follow me for more posts like this!

Boots: by FFP
Leggings: from Quiz
Watch: by Michael Kors style no MK5055
Everything else is pretty old so there's no point me saying where I got it as they no longer have it but some of my favourite places to shop this type of look are and H&M!
