Guess whose back, back again!

After finishing Uni (yay!) I took a little break from blogging, but I miss it so I’m getting things going again with my site. 🙂

I’ve started working at a Food-based supplement company as a marketing assistant, which I really enjoy as I love all the wellness, holistic stuff and I get to write about it every day – so that is ace.

I thought I’d just do a quick lust-list as I’m currently saving to go traveling so I am not allowed to be spending but as always, there’s a million things that I’d like to purchase!! Think of it as a haul… but of the imagination. Mainly following a traveling theme… You can see where my head is at right now I’m sure!!!

  1. I am loving these bikinis from River Island. Being not-so-blessed in the chest area, the neckline on the first is a complete winner and I love the design. Only thing is… tan lines. Hmmm, they’d be interesting! The second one I also love – colour is gorgeous and tassels are always flattering. Daydreaming of beach life right now.

  2. I LOVE SKINNYDIP ❤ These phone cases are literally so cool. I love them. I was absolutely going to treat myself to one that was in the sale and stopped myself the other day so I deserve a pat on the back x10000! They are just cool. No explanation needed.

Anyway, Happy New Year you babes! Stay tuned 😉 ❤

Peace and Love and silly things.

This Touch wood necklace…

I literally love the design of it – really quirky and would look really cool layered with a few other necklaces, or just on it’s own with a plain T-shirt! Mmmmmmm gimme.

A lovely little lust list

Sorry for not having blogged in a little while, I have been moving home from University in preparation for the real world… well as much as you can class living with my parents “the real world”. But still. I have got a new job lined up as a Marketing Co-ordinator, which I will start on the 15th of July, but until then, I am very much penny-less and lusting over things that I just cannot afford. So, I decided to write a short post on certain things that I’d be spending my money on right now if I wasn’t so poor!
1. camera-4-640x430 (Image by beautyandrags.co.uk) What I wouldn’t do to have one of these beauties in my life. I want to be part of the Olympus PEN generation! I give it two months at work until I cave and treat myself to this camera. Did I say two months? I meant two weeks.
2. bumbag(Image by merrimaking.co.uk) Have you ever seen a happier looking bumbag? I don’t think you have… This is the cutest looking thing and I feel like I need it in my life for festival fun. Found this on Lazy Oaf’s website… absolutely love Lazy Oaf at the moment. I think because it’s summer I want all of my clothes to look fun and crazy… all the time. After getting the image from Merrimaking.co.uk, I then discovered Merrimaking… which lead me on to my next lust item…
3. Disco-product_Merrimaking(Image by Merrimaking.co.uk) The DISCO sweatshirt. I love this. I love disco. That is all. I advise any festival lovers to check out Merrimaking if you haven’t heard of them! Bound to cheer up a drizzly Monday.
4. 5560435980795_046_b (Image by Urban Outfitters.com) In my head I’m imagining a barbecue on a terrace, corks popping, drinks flowing, summer tunes breezing through my (imaginary) swanky flat… You feeling it too? Absolutely love this record player from Urban Outfitters… Now I’ve just got to get my own place and matching furniture and everything… No biggie.
5. 811XBaEo4EL._SL1500_(Image by Amazon. com) Now my final thing is a little bit of a cheat as my Mum (who I am currently living with) did actually buy one of these so I do have daily access to one. But this means I know how great it is… and it’s pretty great! I love just throwing in healthy ingredients and making all sorts of crazy looking blends. Man, I’m so wild. But healthiness is the first step to happiness! Or something like that…

Hope you all enjoyed my lust-list and it gives you some summer inspo for spending your money… if you didn’t have enough already!

Peace love and lust-lists xxx

Urban Outfitters Dreamy Playsuit

Style of the day…

Finally, the sun is here! This week has been gorgeous on the weather front, which makes me very excited to crack out the summer wardrobe! As you can see, I’ve recently had a balayage on my hair – blonder for summer! And I love it. Because I’ve got dark features, the roots match my face, but the softer lighter ends make it so much more summery looking.

I love this playsuit I bought from Urban Outfitters, by Silence + Noise (£39). I bought it a while ago and wore it with tights and boots, but now the sun is shining, it looks great with bear legs! It’s plain, so can easily be glammed up with jewellery to make an impact, but can also be worn casually. The style of the back is slightly drapey and crosses over to show a bit of skin. It’s so versatile, you can literally style it however you fancy.

Also wearing a bag and denim jacket from Topshop and black ankle boots from Primark. Loving denim jackets at the moment!

I’ve braided my hair in a French plait around my face, leading down in to a normal braid – I’m loving experimenting with styles from Pinterest at the moment. My balayage means that you can really see the detail in the styles.

Peace and love and summer style x

Or even wear it through to the evening with a bit of bright lipstick (Rimmel – Kate Moss is my absolutely fave!)

Last night I went out for a much needed night with the girls. And it was so great catching up with them and having a dance! That afternoon, my friend Em and I went for a cheeky trip to New Look to have a browse for some outfit inspiration and I picked up this white top and these heels, planning to wear them with a pair of high waisted jeans for a casual look. When I got home, I was having a little play around with my outfit and I decided to see what it’d look like with my ankle grazing monochrome trousers from Topshop and it randomly just really worked! I don’t often blog about my own outfits, but I loved this look last night. The white top was so flattering – I love the thin straps! And a bargain at £9.99!

I’m also a huge fan of that style of shoe, especially with the shape of my feet – I have very tiny heels so my feet often slip out of shoes, but these were super secure!

Wanderlusting daydreaming

Wanderlust: ” a strong desire or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world”

All I can think about at the moment is traveling. Procrastination from the dissertation takes me to lusting over exploring new places…

However, this post is actually about a jewellery brand combining my wanderlusting with one of my other favourite things… Shopping for pretty things. Wanderlust jewellery is a bohemian jewellery brand inspired by travel. And I’m now obsessed. They have so many gorgeous designs, including beautiful elephant rings rings and “wish in a bottle” necklaces (my personal favourite!)

I follow Wanderlust Jewellery on Instagram and the gorgeous pieces of jewellery always catch my eye! I would recommend lovers of jewellery and serial wanderluster’s to check them out!

Peace love and Wanderlust

Be a… Lifechanger

Can’t believe how long it’s been since my last post! I will not make excuses about final year, I will just provide a little post of a fashion brand that I’m appreciating/loving right now!

I recently came across Made by Riley – a fashion brand that has a mission to give to charities whilst making really cool clothes. I follow Riley on Instagram and I have been lusting slightly over the LifeChanger sweater, so I might have to invest. However, the guilty clothing purchase will be overshadowed by good-doing as 20% goes to charity.

I really appreciate the idea behind the brand and as a young entrepreneur trying to give back, I think people should show support. (Also, the clothes are cool!) 

Check it out!

Peace and love and giving back x

A love-list of Winter accessories

I went on a cheeky shopping trip yesterday to buy my best friend a birthday present… and ended up treated myself to a couple of little bits as well… oops! 

10805214_10152618513103264_1258846123_n10754862_10152618513168264_1389813020_n10805041_10152618513263264_1911846064_n10581657_10152618513203264_1736257244_n

Hat – New Look £7 (SALE)
Knee high socks – HnM £5.99
Ankle socks – New Look £2.99

At the moment there is a sale happening in New Look on loads of big wooly hats with fairly big reductions! I think the one that I bought was previously priced at £11.99 and it went down to £7! I absolutely love it… it’s nice and thick and cosy, but also the jewels on the front make it sparkle a bit, which is perfect for the Winter season as I love to get sparkly… actually I love getting sparkly in all the seasons…

The ankle socks are really cute with the frills and look pretty with ankle boots… I bought two pairs of these because I am terrible with socks… my sock drawer is full of odd socks and I just don’t understand how it happens!! (oops teehee)

Finally I bought some thick wooly knee high socks from HnM, which I can wear with my favourite Winter boots from All Saints as they come up to calf level. I love these as they are sooo cosy.

If you are looking for a cosy hat for Winter, I definitely recommend taking a trip to New Look – they have so many lovely ones in the sale!!

Peace and Love x

The Winter Dream… for the freest of people

When I think of Winter, I like to think of loads of cosy knitwear, snuggling, hot chocolate, mulled wine… But sometimes the reality is that you have freezing wet feet, cold hands and everything seems a little bit bleak.

Well, I can tell you with confidence that The Free People Blog makes Winter seem so beautiful. The editorials done with the incredible knitwear are literally what dreams are made of… ahhhhhhhh.

There is sooo much that I want from this website that I cannot even begin to describe… I intend to make a dreamlist of some beautiful items this weekend. (Obviously amongst uni work!) – Procrastination? Me? Never.

If you want to indulge in an item or two to make Winter feel a little more glam, then I recommend having a good browse on Free People – when you are done you will be so dazzled with gorgeousness that Winter may just become your favourite season…

Cosy days and sparkly ways

Firstly, I want to say sorry for not having blogged in a month! Crazy behaviour! I have been ridiculously busy settling in to final year at uni… it really is just as hectic as they say! Looking forward to the degree at the end of it though! 🙂

I just wanted to write a little post on what I love so much about Autumn/Winter clothes…

What I do not enjoy is the rain.. and the cold… and getting in to uni looking completely dishevelled and like a drowned rat. However, I do love those cosy times when you put on a big snuggly jumper and it’s frosty and pretty outside.

Also, what is totally brilliant about this time of year, is that party-wear gets SEQUIN-Y and VELVETY and YUMMY.

Topshop’s Party Rules gives you some great tips on wearing sequins… which is worth a read if you like to sparkle! However, in my book, there are no rules about how sequin-y you can be… the more the better! 😉

The sequin range is also amazing… SEQUIN JOGGERS…. YES PLEASE. These will be making the Christmas list cut!
