AW14 Moodboard

AW14 Moodboard... aka a LOT of black clothing and leather. If you're thinking 'umm excuse me its still August', well yes, you'd be correct but if I have to wear a jumper/jeans combo every time I go out with an umbrella permanently fixed to my hand then I'm allowed to make a winter clothing mood board. Majority of these images have just been selected from my tumblr so sorry about the lack of sources.
PS. I had to include Matty because I'm seeing him again next week and I'm so in love with the entire album and him

Summer disposables

I haven't blogged in a month- whats new. Honestly kudos to full time bloggers. I have 0 motivation to blog or share anything on the internet so I can't even imagine having to do it like seven times a week! Anyway, when summer rolls around I always have a disposable in my pocket and thought I'd share some of my (and my friends) snaps.
The Shard. Would make a pretty sweet apartment view.  
During one of the most intense thunderstorms I've ever seen in Times Square, NYC.
BellĂ­simo Venice. 

The next pictures are from my time in Lisbon/Cascais in Portugal. Me and my gal pals went to Optimus Alive which was so awesome. Highlights music wise include Arctic Monkeys, the 1975, Imagine Dragons and Foster The People... also camping was so fun (and I HATE camping) but I honestly had the best time and I would 100% recommend the festival. We rented a apartment via AirBNB for a week after and had lots more lols. I wish I could go back.
I hope everyone is having a fun summer :-)

A day to night look

I've really got back into polyvore recently so when I was emailed earlier this week about the current Virgin cruise holidays competition thats going on I made a little 'day to night' summer outfit. You can enter yourself or vote for me here.

If you click through to the photo you'll see the original source of the items but most are designer so I've linked some high st alternatives just below.

Top sale picks

I love buying autumn/winter clothes in the summer. Especially when they are on sale. I've done a wish list of some of the things I've got my eye on or, should I say, may have purchased already. I haven't included anything Zara because I would end up with a whole entire new blog dedicated to their sales (SO good always) but I find its always better instore.

New York trip

Third trip here and I love it more than ever. When can I move?!

Desk update and new bits

My last room tour post got a lot of love, so I thought I would do like an updated desk version. I've added some new bits and bobs and its also an opportunity to show some things I've been loving. You can view my room tour here.
Palmistry hand from Urban Outfitters. 
This cloth my perfumes are on top of is from a market in Laos and it was really dirty, ripped and generally quite rank but I really liked it. I couldn't even barter with the lady selling it as I pointed out the rips and huge stains (on the back) and in the end I paid like £3 for this (literally crazy in that kind of country) and she was chuckling because I was just a stupid tourist and she had basically sold me a scrap of material that looked like it belonged in a bin. But here it is!
My Shu Uemura brush (20) is literally my favourite brush ever and although its not new, It deserved some love. I also picked up NARS satin lip pencil in Biscayne Park on the recommendation from Rumi's beauty post. I adore the Olsens and their Elizabeth and James fashion house so was excited to sniff and inevitably purchase their new perfumes. I would of bought the full size but I only had hand luggage when in America booooooo. 
 also a welcome new addition is my leather makeup bag. While I was in new york I stumbled upon the American Apparel outlet and more purchases were made. I managed to get this for $35 (roughly £20) when its RRP £38 over here. I love the dark lilac colour and the buttery leather although I'm slightly paranoid about getting it dirty.
Obviously my favourite sunglasses had to get a mention.

Next: my actual New york photo diaries yay.
