Me at Alton Towers for the fireworks! I’m loving rich, deep, autumnal shades this season, and this hat from urbanoutfitters is my new fave!!
Hello! Long time no see! My goodness, it’s been so long since I posted anything!! I hope you all had a fab few months! I know I have…. I’ve been so busy, but I hope you can forgive me for my absence! I can’t wait to get back into the swing of things! Anyway guys, visit my etsy shop by clicking here and see if there’s anything you fancy, either for yourself or as a gift for someone else, especially as Christmas is nearing! And don’t forget to enter the discount code XMAS20 at the checkout to get your extra 20% off ^_^ <3
I love a good pair of high heels, despite the fact that a large portion of the twenty-something pairs I have in my wardrobe hardly ever see daylight… Anyway, whilst watching Maid in Manhattan the other day (such a great film by the way - Ralph Fiennes is smokin’…), there was a scene in which J-Lo, who plays the main character, is in a clothing store and one shot pans to a selection of shoes, most of which are fantastic heeled sandals and strappy shoes, and I instantly fell in love with this style of footwear!
I then saw this pair of heels from Zara, which is, as you probably know, my new favourite fashion brand, and knew I had had to have them!
They’re so beautiful, simple yet elegant, and they would go with just about anything! I had visions of walking in town sporting these, a pair of skinny jeans, and a vest top and blazer combo, topped off with a stylish handbag of some description. I love this shade of pink as well, it’s so warm and girly. However, when I had gathered the funds to pay for them, they had completely sold out, as they’re very on-trend this summer! I was absolutely heartbroken :’(
And so, my search for the perfect pair of heeled sandals continued, and finally, after hours of laboriously piling through shops and websites, I came across these beauties from boohoo.com!
Admittedly, they’ll never be as perfect as the pair from Zara, but they’ll suffice as a perfectly good replacement… I took inspiration from the other ones and went for a nude colour, and I must admit, I do prefer the suede texture of these as opposed to the leather of the Zara ones!
The postman can’t come quick enough, in my opinion!!!
I’m loving cutesy prints this summer, and this shirt would be ideal for keeping cool on these hot summer days, as it’s such a light fabric! I’m loving the turquoise and white colour scheme as well, it’s so refreshing, and would look great with a simple skinny jeans and pumps combo for everyday wear, or team with a skater skirt and heeled sandals for a great evening look!
I adore this dress I got from a little boutique in Market Harborough called Mayhem whilst visiting my nephew, I’m so chuffed that I bought it! Such a rich, deep red colour, and I love the scoop neckline, it’s so elegant and classy! Topped off with the navy blue hat, all I need now is a ticket to ascot!! :-P This is a timeless classic, something I’m sure will be treasured in my wardrobe forever <3
This Spring/Summer, I’m in love with slipper flats! They’re so versatile, an elegant twist on ballet pumps, an overused yet old time favourite, and are reminiscent of the rich and luxurious garments of Asia!
Here are some I spied on Tumblr;
I adore the beautiful regal pattern against the coral background; these shoes would be great to brighten up and add class to any outfit, from a simple cropped jeans and vest top combo during the day, to an evening dress and clutch bag if you’re fed up going through the pain of high heels on a night out! They’re also great to wear in summer as they’re so lightweight and allow your feet to breathe in this sweltering heat. Unfortunately, I’m not sure where these ones are from…
However, I also found these beauties from my new favourite fashion brand, Zara, which are great value at £19.99, and are very similar to the ones above, but in a choice of different colours;
I must admit, I have both of these pairs of shoes, as I couldn’t choose between them - oops!
Anyway, for more slipper flats-piration (hehe, I couldn’t resist…), check out this great article by Company Magazine to see some of their favourite picks, and also visit the Zara website, where they have a great selection! <3
Chilling by the pool at Jubilee Park at Woodhall Spa yesterday! I got a great suntan :-) I’m wearing my new bikini from River Island at ASOS, my favorite pair of blue Ray-Ban Wayfarer style sunglasses and my new nail varnish from Essie, appropriately named ‘Bikini So Teeny’! :P
This Spring/Summer, I have a craving for candy and sweet inspired clothing, nails, and anything else fashion related! Indulge yourself, and get inspired by these little gems…
I first spied Fearne Cotton wearing this top from Very on Twitter and I absolutely adore the kitsch ice cream motif and the pastel colour scheme!

Ooo, I adore this outfit by Gant for their AW12 collection! I spotted this whilst flicking through some old issues of Plaza Magazine <3

Yaaay!!! My Monki parcel has arrived ^_^ Can’t wait until summer to wear my new stonewashed, high-waisted 3/4 length jeans with the gorgeously ethnic clutch! And I bought a scarf that was on sale for those days when it still randomly decides to snow…
Well, it’s the 13th of February again, and we all know what that means - yes, that’s right people, tomorrow is Valentine’s day, the day we can all come together and celebrate the happiness we share with our loved ones. One of my favourite parts of this day is the giving of presents to the ones we love and seeing their faces light up when they open them. I can imagine that in the shops today is a mad scramble of people buying last-minutes presents, and I must admit that I am normally amongst them. However, this can be a problem if, like me, your job is seasonal and you’re broke over the winter months. Whilst mulling over this problem yesterday, something suddenly dawned on me - I love cake, my boyfriend loves cake, and I have a day off tomorrow! And just like that, an idea was born.
I looked up a recipe that I could easily adapt to suit my own personal taste, which I soon found on the BBC website, and having bought all the necessary ingredients, I began my cupcake making journey!
All set and ready to go!
Hmm, not sure this is supposed to look like scrambled eggs…
Oooh, the lovely postman paid me a surprise visit during my baking session to deliver a parcel from Urban Outfitters! Well worth the interruption :P
Back down to business, the mixture is looking slightly more hopeful…
Spooning the mixture into the tray! I think I may have overfilled them a bit… Oh well, we’ll just have to wait and see! Fingers crossed!
Experimenting with food colouring! I’m hoping this is going to create a successful marbled effect, and bearing in mind that I’ve never tried this before, it isn’t looking too bad at this point!
Eek! Bye bye my darlings x’/ It’s been nice knowing you…
Making buttercream icing whilst the cupcakes are being cremated in the oven. Why do I have to make such a mess?? I’m going to have such fun cleaning up afterwards…
Oops, I think I may have gone a bit overboard with the food colouring?
Hurrah! They survived ^_^ And they’re actually looking alright!! Let’s hope they taste nice as well…
Considering I forgot to buy a piping bag and had to improvise by cutting a hole in a sandwich bag, I think they look pretty good!
All iced up and ready to go! I can’t wait to see the look on his face, I hope he’s as happy with them as I am <3
And there we are my lovelies, a thoughtful, yet cheap, gift that any man or woman would be happy to receive and devour! Happy Valentine’s Day, everybody ^_^ <3
How I’m accessorising today! I loove my new bracelets from New Look, they go perfectly with my jeans, also from New Look, and my Vintage Diesel jumper x)
What I’m wearing today :) I’m so happy the snow has gone because now I can finally wear my Vans for the first time in months, teamed with leggings, but I’m still keeping warm, layering a gorgeous shirt from New Look with a vintage denim shirt and a reliable and cosy zip-through hoodie that is also from New Look, topped off with my favourite scarf from Fat Face!
