Feeling blue

Thursday, 28 January 2016


Ugh, January blues, you are so real and still as potent in your last days as your first. Tornado wind weather and exam season has drained my initial 5 minute enthusiasm for 2016 and now I feel like a deflated balloon. Sartorial wise- I am searching for the perfect blue shirt like the one above (source: fashion-gone-rouge) but nothing similar has materialised on the high street as of yet.  

Meanwhile I'll be dreaming of a tropical island with the right kind of blues...

Berlin Photo Diary

Sunday, 10 January 2016
 I've been all over Europe but surprisingly never to Germany- so, for New Year, me and some friends booked an Airbnb apartment for a week in Berlin. It was very fun and eventful, also rather cold, so these pictures were only taken when I could bare to take off my gloves. The amount of graffiti, street art and posters that plastered Berlin really surprised me, but made the city seem relaxed and more interesting. I am definitely going to visit again, we barely scratched the surface of the wonderful  museums Berlin has to offer and I bet in the warmer months the city is even more lively.

Five Christmas season outfits and ideas

Sunday, 13 December 2015
My two favourite things for blog posts combined, polyvore and mood boards, hurrah! I thought I would offer a little inspiration for outfits for festive days as I'm not doing a gift guide this year (heres my extensive one from last year) and also I just wanted to do something a bit different. As with all my polyvore posts, take it as purely inspiration as its basically guaranteed that I've used designer items that are old links or ridiculously overpriced.

Secret Santa party with your girlfriends 
Secret Santa is popular within offices and workplaces, but if you're a student like me, it's a easy way to celebrate with your friends without having to double your 'to buy' list. My friends from home and I usually have a little dinner party with baked goods and mulled wine. It's always nice to bring some flowers or something too, like these Blossoming Gifts flowers I received on my insta. The Mistletoe bouquet would be the perfect for a host, use code BGIFTS33 for 33% off

Alternative Christmas Day outfit - no gross jumpers in sight 

A different offering to the usual pjs getup on Christmas day. I love the combination of a silk slip underneath a subtly festive plaid knit, its luxurious and cosy so you can still eat ALL the food and still look #glam. Also, my future house is totally going to look like the pictures above at Christmas time.

 Shopping at the Christmas Markets 


One of my favourite festive things to do is get a hot chocolate and wander the German Christmas markets that are all over here in the UK and Europe. The combination of fairy lights, music, cold air and German sausage/roasted chestnuts/melted chocolate crepes smell (the Kinder Maxi ones at Winter Wonderland are my favourite) is the best.

Ice Skating at Somerset House 

Every year I always over layer and end up skating with 10 things wrapped around my waist to try and cool down. It's nice to go slightly more dressy and festive as this is usually just a once-a-year thing.

Night in by the fire reading



My house at home has a working fire place so I love to catch up with all my reading that isn't Uni related in the warmth of the fire (WHY DOES IT SMELL SO GOOD?). I have so many deadlines right now that I'm looking forward to some relaxation time and what better way then a silk nightdress and cashmere socks/scarves.

There is another one of these coming soon... New Years Eve edition.
 But for now, Merry Christmas everyone!

Style moodboard

Wednesday, 2 December 2015
only sources i know: Horkruksdeborarosa

As always, lots of cool tones, blazers, coats and masculine shapes. I'm sadly now on a self-imposed shopping ban (bar Christmas presents) until the January sales. But posts like this help me keep in mind exactly the kind of pieces which are missing from my wardrobe so I won't buy all sorts of junk when Boxing Day comes around.
