Week in Photos No.51

Last week was a rather chilled one - full of sunny weather, catching up with friends and meals out, which I seem to be doing a lot of lately, considering I only ever used to eat out once in a blue moon. I love that all the blossom tree down my road have started to bloom and I have been really getting into my herbal teas!

Non-Fashion/Beauty Wish List • April 2013




1. Etsy: Recycled Leather Journal, $30 (buy here)
I don't know what it is about journals that excite me so much, but I just love 'em! There are a variety of journals sold on Etsy very much like this one and I want to buy them all - they remind me of the journal you see Leonardo DiCaprio using in the Baz Luhrmann version of Romeo & Juliet which is my all time favourite film, so of course I want this journal!

Wish List • April 2013


1. Topshop: Floral Shirt Dress by Annie Greenabelle, £52 (buy here)
Within the last month, I have come to the realisation that I am obsessed with dresses (alongside beanies, skinny jeans, ankle boots with ankle socks and jumpers) so to add to my mental list of dresses I want, is this lovely shirt dress with a tiny blue floral print. This is without doubt a great staple piece for summer and it would look spiffing with a scruffy up do on those super hot sunny days - you'd look effortless yet gorgeous!

Week in Photos No.50

Maybe it's just due to the warmer weather we have been experiencing here in the South East, but I have had another great week, including a couple of lovely meals out and a few exciting deliveries. I was also able to see Doug two weekends in a row which is unheard of (we're long distance if you're wondering) and we visited some friends who I hadn't seen since the beginning of December!

Send in your Style No.11

top: avion en papier at topshop // coat: internacionale // bag: chicnova // boots: h&m 

"I'd describe my style as evolving. I'm influenced a lot by my moods or by people I see on the streets. I'm very much a plan-ahead kinda girl when it comes to outfits but I sometimes rely on spontaneous choices. As a student at London College of Fashion, I'm always around creative people and those very conscious of fashion. At the moment I'm loving co-ords and tailored pieces" - Monica from helloomonica.com

Denim Babydoll Dress at Topshop • Pick of the Week

topshop: denim babydoll dress, £42 (buy here)
This week I have chosen an adorable little denim number from Topshop as my 'pick of the week' because lately I have noticed that it's pretty difficult to find a flattering denim dress which has been rather disheartening as I love denim dresses; all of the denim dress I've found in Topshop to date, have been boxy, unflattering, too long or too short but I have finally found a denim dress which I think, beats of the rest!

Week in Photos No.49


After a couple of weeks jam packed full of fun and games, this past week has been a little more tame compared but I've enjoy it nonetheless. I received a random call for my friend, Tom at 9pm on a Sunday saying we should go bowling.. so that's what we did (view video) and I had an event up in London where there were a few circus acts which made a nice change for the average blogger event!

March Favourites • 2013

It's time for my March Favourites which can only mean one thing - Spring is here (well almost..) and us here in England can start to anticipate some warmer weather, after what felt like an extended Winter. I felt like I had nothing to show for this months, Monthly Favourites video but it turns out I had a fair few amount of items ranging from moisturiser to musicals and from clothing to gadgets. Enjoy the video!

Week in Photos No.48


It's been another great week; from seeing One Direction in concert to lunch by the river with my beloved, Douglas. I don't want to jinx it but I'm happy to say that the weather is starting to brighten up too and I think Spring might have arrived, finally!

Neon Tie Dye Dress • Styling Saturday

1. Topshop: Neon Tie Dye Dress, £29 (buy here)      2. Topshop: Round Revo Sunglasses, £12 (buy here)
3. Topshop: Zig Zag Beanie, £12 (buy here)     3. ASOS: Fatal Sandals (buy here)


As if the whole 90s revival tie dye garments weren't statement enough, Topshop have gone and made their tie dye neon and you know what? I love it! Topshop are my favourite store for basic dresses because they're comfortable, not too pricey considering they're good quality and they last a long time.
I'm one for mixing up styles, always adding a touch of grunge because I have a fear of coming across too girly, especially with my hair, people tend to think I'm about thirteen, so I like to toughen up my look - keeping it feminine but edgy, therefore I teamed the dress with some wicked sandals (which remind me of the sister version of a biker boot) and a charcoal beanie because I just love beanies (as you may know) and I feel it brings the whole look together. If you're not feeling the buckled sandals then why not try a more dainty pair like these from ASOS.

Topshop Haul

Last week I made a cheeky detour through Topshop whilst I was waiting for my best friend to meet me in town, which was proven dangerous as it was payday and as a result I made a few new purchases. I am really happy with the items I bought because I know they are all items that will be staples in my wardrobe and I will get a lot of wear out of them. Enjoy the video!
