spring wishlist

Even though I will be running off into the sunset in 15 days, it doesn't change the fact that the sky is the colour of a bruise and pouring with rain here in london. One of my favourite things to do when stores are slowly releasing their new collections (or any time, really) is make a wishlist. At least I can look at pretty, lightweight clothes while I'm in 5 layers, right? I'm particularly enamoured with the two pairs of buckle shoes, both of which I will be trying on next week fo' sure. They definitely are reminscent of the Vivienne Westwood 3-strap shoes that I loved a couple of years ago- a winner in my books.

ysl ring

 (hand pictures are so awkward to take. I have about 10 out-cuts that either look like a corpse coming out of a grave or a hobbit hand clawing at something)

Its time to rekindle the love for my YSL ring- for too many months now it has sat unloved on my dresser gathering dust and for the amount I paid it deserves to be a regular staple in my wardrobe again. its definitely not a ring of subtlety which probably is why it looks so good paired with a simple outfit but proves more difficult in day to day dressing.

driver roll up the partition fast

 Haul post as a result of spending too much in the January sales. Woops.
Velvet Kimono down from £68 to £35 - Topshop
Navy Fur Crop Top down from £55 to £25 - Topshop
Dolce & Gabbana Desire down from £79 to £63 - from Feel Unique
Diptyque Do Son 100ml down from £68 to £34 - Space NK (sold out)

At least I will get good use out of the last three items as I leave for travelling a month today (!!), so I'm not totally crazy for buying summer items in January. The three perfumes I bought were the ones I put on every day while at work as I had a Space Nk opposite and also there was a Dolce & Gabbana stand on the department below. Fond memories coupled with a 50% reduction, how could I resist?

headlights shining in the dark night I drive on

Some festive outfit inspiration- minus any christmas jumpers

I love a gaudy Christmas jumper as much as the next person, see this post for proof, but I thought I'd post a few of my favourite outfits that I've seen on Tumblr/Pinterest that are a tad more subtly festive. Red is a colour I normally avoid as the wrong shade or texture can look tacky. I spotted this Topshop Crepe Tee in a brilliant daring red from the Kate Bosworth Collection hanging on the last chance rack and it's definetely the kind of top that would look more in place amongst designer pieces rather than from the high street. Since then I've successfully worn it to death with my leather jacket and black skinnies. Another fail safe for including a little christmas in your look is of course, the red lip. I'm sporting Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Mascate in the photo above, taken after a couple of hours of wear, and its clearly still going strong. A thumbs up in my book.

I am a blank page waiting for life to start

(Checked coat; River Island, Leather playsuit; Zara)
  • Another win from River Island- this coat that looks ten times more high end than it is. Teamed with the leather playsuit and also a berry lip (not pictured, but Soap & Glory in Pom Pom is my go to right now)   you get the perfect kind of sexy winter outfit. 
  • I put up 25 items on my eBay, the link is here. Plenty of Topshop (some new season!), Zara, Urban Outfitters etc included so check it out if that takes your fancy. 
  • Thank you for all the love on my previous post! I'm glad y'all like my room, it is most definitely my favourite place ever.

Bedroom tour

 Over the past couple of months I've been redecorating my room and thought I'd share a couple of pictures. Everything is basically white/cream and only my decor has any colour (but I like it that way). My duvet and pillow is from Cath Kidston and my blanket from Matalan*.




 The main difference is getting rid of my dresser that has featured quite a lot on my blog over the years. I got a new mirror, desk and shelf from Ikea. Finally I can do my makeup without having the sit on the floor by my radiator, with all my products randomly dumped around me! haha. This lovely little stool* was sent to me by Out There Interiors  from their French Bedroom series. The whole website has gorgeous pieces, the kind that you won't find in Ikea.
I keep my skincare and contact lenses stuff by my floor length mirror on a pile of magazines. I should probably throw them out but I can't bare to chuck away stuff I spent money on. I bought magazines much more when I was younger because I didn't have as easy access to blogs like I do now. I didn't have much money so normally would tag along to Sainsburys with my mum and slyly sneak a Vogue under a pile of food in the trolley. The glossy pages of Elle etc were definitely like a whole new world so to speak (cringe) as the extent of my fashion knowledge was the teen section at Tammys in BHS. I like to think some of the magazines I have in that pile helped create my blog and kind of start my love for good style. 
This pin board is badly painted white and collaged with a bunch of pictures I printed off. Its like having a piece of tumblr on my wall. You know whats a pain in the ass though? When these pins fall out and I step on them in the middle of the night in the pitch black. Yep. SUCKS. Next on my wishlist is another one of these boards and a massive map which I can shove on it so I can pin point places I've been/want to travel to. 

I love the little different bowls and candles I have on my dresser. I have a couple of Diptyque bits and a &OtherStories fig hand lotion that smells divine. A couple of my makeup bits are stored here along with my brushes and lipsticks. The lipstick storage is from eBay and was super cheap, I'm talking £3 cheap! Link is here

A couple of my favourite bags hang on my Zara Home doorknobs.
I also keep a handful of my books and photo frames on this Ikea book case. I think I want to do what everyone who has a blog has done and print my instagram pictures and stick them up on the walls. Why is this ridiculously overpriced on so many websites though? Not impressed.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed a look at my haven :)

So over the course of the summer I completely neglected my polyvore. If you've been following for a long time, my first ever post (deleted now sadly) was a polyvore post and so were the next few. That website now kind of has a cosy little spot in my heart as I feel like it inspired the birth of my blog. The next couple of weeks for me will be spent in work uniform (I got a job!) so I'm going to live vicariously through these kind of posts.
