Party and Gatsbys, Finally

Finally an outfit post and a closer look at my most favourite jumper (soz that my hair covers the PARTY). I originally saw this jumper on Rosie The Londoners blog and literally had to buy it. It took a good gargantuan 3 weeks to be shipped over from america but so worth it. Super soft. Cannot wait to see the film now and you can bet that I shall be wearing this fine specimen to the screening.

I am getting so excited for Christmas now, although I've still not finished all my Christmas shopping due to being beyond poor at the moment. sigh. However I am definitely in the Christmas spirit and went a bit mental and died my hair pink (see below post) all in the name of joviality?! or possible due to copious amounts of mulled wine. Obviously this post was from when I was still at uni and I've only just got round to putting it up, so you can't see the pink, but I have lots of photos from my Oxford trip as promised and I'll do a post tomorrow.

Flowers in your hair

Or Maybe not quite flowers... but I finally dyed my hair pink, well dip dyed it anyway... What do you think?

Going to mess around with different shades over Christmas, so I'll keep you updated. Going down to Oxford for a few days to get christmassy with some of my best friends. Hopefully the trip will be able to capture some outfit posts and some better quality hair shots. Updates when I'm home.

Lovely Sally leggings - White horse and a Cherry tree

I love these legging by Lovely Sally see the full collection here, maybe not to everyone's taste but I think their awesome, definitely have my eye on the wolfy ones next. This was just a quick outfit post as I was on the way into Uni and we were kinda late already, not the best photos but I thought I would share anyway, I also took the opportunity to show you guys my new coat, it's by Mango but I got it from the ASOS site so that I could get discount (sneaky). Such a beaut of a coat warm and toasty for winter. 
I'm currently enjoying a chilled weekend at home where my one aim is to eat my self into a stupor make some progression on my dissertation! Sheffield is so pretty in the autumn and in my house your never too far away from a cat (or three). Also me and my besties went to see the final twilight, breaking dawn part 2, yesterday, and. it. was. perfect! Won't say too much but all the rumours about a different ending are definitely true! 
Hope everyone's enjoying the weekend x x x

Swinging in the back yard, Pull up in your fast car...

So this is my first outfit post in a very long while, I got a new lens for my birthday and I think it's going to help me take way better photos so hoorah for that. I am in love with this skirt although it isn't actually mine borrowed it off a friend for my birthday outfit and then sneakily used it for this outfit, cheers sam :)

I am hating the weather at the moment in Nottingham it's been so cold and rainy and the daily 20 minute trudge into uni is no fun at all, especially now they have a new Sainsbury's local on the way in, far to tempting to dash in and buy a doughnut/chocolate bar, baked good/all three!! So far I have been pretty good however, trying to suck it up so I can pig out as Christmas. 

How good are the new secret boards on Pinterest btw, I am DEF planning all my Christmas presents on there now, it is the most addictive thing ever. I find when browsing Pinterest, hours and even whole days melt away and you come out of your Pinterest coma with a greater love of harry potter/doctor who/LOTR, and a burning desire to both loose weight and bake cakes simultaneously.... just me???

Taking the above into consideration, if you still want to have a look at my pins you can have a gander here :)

Birthday Fun

    Birthday stroll
    Birthday food and goodies
    ... and then we jumped in a pile of leaves

So Bonfire night also happens to be my birthday and this year I turned 23... blatantly young enough for cheeky vimtos still right? So some of my beautiful friends embarked on the perilous journey to Nottingham, from all corners of the globe England for the weekend... it was brilliant! We ate far too much food (pictured) and possibly drank too much drink. Highlights include; deep water aqua (check your local gym, most hilarious thing ever! My brother popping up to notts for my birthday lunch. Eating so much I felt violently ill and generally loving life on Saturday and Monday night :) 
I didn't actually watch any fireworks, I guess everyone with a birthday on a special occasion (halloween, christmas etc) gets just as bored with celebrating the actual day as part of your personal birthday every year. I have had fireworks on every birthday I can remember, I guess this year was a refreshing change and no doubt I'll be waving sparklers with the best of them come my 24th!

Its beyond cold in my room at the moment because my radiator has decided to break... BOO. Tomorrow brings with it the thrilling prospect of dissertation preparation, wish me luck!


Granny's Closet

I Love Wildfox campaigns, they always showcase their collections beautifully, photographed 
in a tongue in cheek, obvious way. Some of my happiest memories are of dressing up in 
items from my granny's closet with all my brothers and sisters... so I knew I would love
 this collection. Chunky knits, blue rinses, knitting, gardening and bingo... 
Wildfox's grannys would be proud.

Also what better escape fro drowning in my (chocolate fuelled) university work 
meltdown is there than looking at gorgeous photos of spring and summer themed 
loveliness. I want winter to go away now! but not before Christmas or my skiing holiday :)

I am going to get back into regularly blogging and taking outfit photos, 
it's all taken rather a back-seat this summer and then starting back 
at Uni for my final year has been mega intense 
yahdah yahdah yahdah....NO EXCUSES. 
I'm back

(all photos taken from I LOVE WILDFOX, Kimberly Gordons gorgeous blog.)


Ebay clear out

 I'm having a clear out!! going back to university for my final year and as per usual skint!
Check out the items I have for sale here

Soz about my awkward posing and that I'm far too in love with that beanie for my own good!



Summer Blues

It's been a very long and very hot summer (zero time spent in England helps).
These photos are just a little insight into what I've been up to, coming home from New York, working in Switzerland for 2 weeks and driving around France in a banger with my two best friends, tan lines and in jokes galore.
I'll follow them up with more detailed posts soon. How great is PicMonkey btw?? I wish I had instagram but alas alack... I don't. Enter PicMonkey and now, well now...  I pretty much do. Hooray!

From left to right snapshots of summer include:
Waving goodbye to the Empire state. By myself. Like. A. Loon.
Starting the long flight back home across the Atlantic.
Me and two of my siblings at the olympics, sorry no paraphernalia, but we were there!
Me being a noob in La Pompadour Paris,
Salad and pringles by La Etang Blanc, (white salt lake to not frenchies).
Playing with two crazy dogs in Bordeux,
My bezzies baylife-ing it and doing cartwheels in Paris, nb: I can't cartwheel!
Sneak peak of an upcoming outfit post,
Posing like troupers on bikes we certainly hadn't paid for,
Posing again,
Hiya Arc de Triomphe,
Dressing up my gorgeous cat in my fathers glasses,
Killing time on the ferry journey,
Being fools n Bayonne,
and Loving life in France generally.

Don't you just love summer with your friends!!
