Pinterest & Recent Buys...

So yet again I have not written a blog post for a while but I do have a good excuse besides work. I might be late on the bandwagon but its...


Oh my god its amazing, I love it, I don't know how I survived without it! Ok so I'm being a bit over the top but seriously its so good! Those of you who have it already know this and those who don't should get it! I find it not only fun but really inspiring. I love looking at photos, especially to get new, original ideas in my life so I knew I had to join as its right up my street!

Anyway I've been shopping so thought I would dedicate this post to my latest buys! First up is my new Zara bag which I adore!

Tan Shopper Basket £39.99
I have had my eye on it for about 2 months now and finally decided it was time to buy after seeing a photo of Mollie King from The Saturdays with it and I suddenly worried it would sell out! Thank god it didn't because its just perfect, big enough for all my daily essentials plus more so I know I'll be using this all summer!

A peek inside!
Next up are these super cute white & yellow stripe shorts I picked up in the Topshop sale for £18 (originally £35). These were the last pair left! I want the weather to warm up so I can wear them!

H&M (like Zara) is another shop which is getting everything right at the moment! I just walk in and immediately see at least five things I want! I bought this skirt and top from the Conscious Collection which launched a couple of weeks ago. The skirt is really flattering and pretty and I'm just obsessed with anything mint coloured right now! The navy blazer I bought a few weeks back and already worn it alot. Its a classic item goes with so in my wardrobe!


Top - £7.99 Skirt - £9.99

I've also been buying some new make up but I'll post about that during the week!! If anyone wants to check out my Pinterest follow me on

Hope you've all had a good weekend!

Navy, Cream & a bit of gold...

I've been meaning to do this post outfit for almost a week but been so busy! I've made a promise to myself to start updating my blog more regularly and taking more photos to share!

So....this is what I wore last Friday night! The shorts are Topshop & I got them from Ebay for £5!! I was so happy when I found them & even more surprised when I was the only bidder! The cream blouse was £10 from Primark & the wedges are Lousie Roe for Stylistpick (see previous post).

The photo sort of shows it but the silky shorts have tiny gold studs on and a silk tie around the waistband. These are officially my new favourite item in my wardrobe!!

Some other photos from the night . . .

We went out in Canterbury to a bar called The Ballroom which has a really great atmosphere and glamorous interior, with an extremely high ceiling, lots of mirrors & chandeliers.They serve this drink called The Teapot which is basically some sort of fruity cocktail in a huge teapot & you drink out of teacups! SO cute! But yeah I didn't take enough photos so next time I go I'll be sure to take loads!!

Anyway, I'm off to spend the rest of my evening with a glass of Baileys(I know its not Christmas but I love it) & reading Marie Claire & In Style...Two of my favourite people Cheryl Cole & Jennifer Aniston are both on the cover of the latest issues!

Perfect summer dress alert!

When I clapped eyes on this Topshop beauty it immediately went to the top of my must buy list! It reminds me of a Peter Pilotto dress with the graphic print and zip front detail and the citrus lime colour is just perfect for the summer months. Teamed with the right shoes and accessories its could easily be worn during the day AND at night, which is something I always love my wardrobe items to be: versatile.

Pacific Zip Front Dress £60

Apart from lusting after the above dress, my week has mainly consisted of sorting through mountains of clothes for Ebay, working and buying lots of Body Shop products (I went a bit made when I saw the current 3 for 2 offer). I've also been reading The Hunger Games trilogy. Yes, I'm a bit late on the bandwagon but these books are Amazing! I saw the film last week which was incredible and definitely lived up to the book! Jennifer Lawrence as Katiss is such a brilliant actress and it'll be interesting to see what other film roles she takes on & watch her career develop.

I'm also really looking forward to going out tonight and with it being bank holiday its sure to be a gooden! I'm planning to wear my new Bardot Wedges and Topshop shorts (which I got from Ebay for just £5!! best find!). I'm hoping to do my first outfit post of the outfit so watch this space...

Bardot Wedges!

My first April post is dedicated to my new Louise Roe for Stylistpick Bardot wedges! I've had my eye on these since the collection launched online in February but due to the original conditions of Stylistpick's membership I was somewhat reluctant to buy them. I was therefore very pleased when they recently introduced the new pay as you go option at the check out! I managed to get these wedges for £15.00 (originally £39.95 like everything on Stylistpick) when I used a "valid for one day" code!

The description online calls them "the perfect beach to bar wedge" which I completely agree with! I've already thought of so many day and night time outfit combinations I could team them with and while they are quite high, being wedges, they are still very comfortable!

Not only was I impressed by the quality of the shoes, the delivery and attention to detail was excellent! After opening the usual cardboard delivery box, I was surprised to see a large black Stylistpick gift bag protecting the shoe box (which had black ribbon tied around it in a bow). Each shoe was then individually wrapped in white tissue paper and sealed with a little Stylistpick sticker.

The rest of the Louise Roe collection is very impressive and I particularly like the Hutton wedges in Taupe (although they are currently sold out) & the Talitha heels in Orange. I may be making another purchase very soon . . .
