I’ve spent my day organising my closet, drawers and makeup collection! I love organising, it’s very therapeutic for me. When my space is clean and tidy, I feel like I can function better! If you’ve watched my most recent video on YouTube, you probably already know about the bag and flats pictured! I actually went back to Zara to return a pair of shoes I wasn’t too keen on, and ended up buying another, and a leather jacket too! That place is not good for my bank account! Anyhoo, I’m loving the whole holographic trend, and I felt these heels were to… Read More »

ZARA Leopard Print Wedges

SHOPPING
February 17 2013

While my excitement is still fresh, I thought to blog about these wedges that I found in Zara today. I was out with my little brother shopping for him, but couldn’t resist having a peek in my favourite store! I tried them on and instantly fell in love, but I had to think twice about purchasing them, because on the price tag was £79.99. I gave in and went straight to the counter, and to my surprise they had been reduced to £16.99! Can you believe it? It was definitely meant to be, my leopard print beauty… I already have a few… Read More »

New Things

January 3 2013

I’m slowly building my fragrance collection and it seems like I’ve formed a pattern when it comes to buying them. I buy one at the beginning of the year and wear it all year round, love it then move on to a new one the following year. Last year was Miss Cherie (Dior), the year before was Coco Mademoiselle (Chanel), and this year it’s Chance (Chanel), a sensual scent with subtle flowery notes. I’m in love with it. I thought I’d also share my most recent purchases. I haven’t really gone all crazy in the sales this time around, but… Read More »

Faux Fur Shrug : H&M | Purse (Wallet) : Zara | My iPhone | EDT : Miss Dior Mum has made our home so lovely and festive. She has also been babying me a little because I’ve had a bout with the cold for a few days and have had difficulty sleeping thanks to my annoying cough. I did try the honey and lemon home remedy and that’s made me feel much better!I’m hoping to post and film a few videos this weekend, most probably my current favourites and a winter haul!  I also wanted to let you know that… Read More »

Angelica Blick for Nelly Trend Knight Heels :: Zara Ankle Boots :: H&M Boots Just have a look at these beauties! All ready and set for me to don as Autumn comes around. I’m very excited to be pairing them with pieces in my new Autumn wardrobe! I love Autumn because I feel I can be even more experimental with my style, by adding layers, new textures and the like, so very different from the stripped back summer style of dressing! Are you excited for Autumn? I know I am! Oh and London Fashion Week is just a couple of days away!… Read More »

Pure Whites & Neutrals

“Shirley loves her whites and neutrals!” I can’t exactly pin-point where my obsession with this colour palette stemmed from, but for as long as I can remember I’ve always loved it. The sheer clean and fresh nature of it is what keeps me coming back to it. I love how chic a garment in the white or neutral colour family looks on. These are my favourite pieces, and they will be making regular appearances on the blog!

A Few New Things!

Hello! It’s so nice to finally be blogging again! It feels like ages since my last post, and although I’m not officially done with my exams (Last one is next Friday!) I just couldn’t stay away! Here are a few new purchases of mine! Eau de Toilette | Miss Dior, 50ml (£51.00) I was on the hunt for a new scent for summer and was suggested by a few of you on Twitter to try Miss Dior, and my oh my, it is such a lovely scent. Very sweet with some floral tones, a lovely pick for this summer! Peplum… Read More »
