OOTD – Cute Shorts

8 Nov

I really can’t believe how much uni work I’ve had lately, but I’m trying my best to make sure that I keep blogging.  This year and next year count toward my final degree grade so I feel like I have to put a lot more effort into uni work but I’m starting to organise mine time a bit better now.  Oh and I also created an Instagram so you can follow me there too if you like 🙂 Anyway on with the post…

I felt that I hadn’t done an outfit post in a while and I am definitely going to try and do more of them.  This is an outfit that I wore to uni during the week.  I’ve had the shorts for a while but never wore them as they were a little too big but I finally decided to take them.  I’m not the best a sewing but I feel that I did quite well at it 🙂

Necklace – Dorothy Perkins

I really like these cute little shorts and wish that I’d been brave enough to take them in sooner.  I really love the braces on them 🙂  The buttons also have a cute bow detail on them.  I think that these might be something that I’ll try and get some use of before the weather gets too cold!

Hope you like my outfit, let me know what you think 🙂

Mini Haul Post

10 Jan

So these are a few of the things that I bought when I went shopping the other day and thought I’d share with everyone 🙂

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I actually bought this not long after Christmas but I wanted to include it in this post as it was one of the items I wore going shopping.  I bought it out H&M on sale for £15, which I feel is an amazing price and I’m really tempted to go back and buy another one n a different colour.

New sports top and trousers as I’ve decided that I will start going to the gym, not sure how long this will actually last but we’ll see.  The top and trousers were about £6/£7 each from a sports shop that was having a massive sale.

I haven’t tried any lipsticks from Topshop and I decided that I would try the Louise Grey one in Mexican Wave.  We also have the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush, which was on offer for £5 and the MUA brow pallet, which I eventually managed to find it always seemed to be out of stock, which was £3.50.  I will be reviewing all of these soon 🙂

I decided to include this as it smells amazing, I got this in B&M for about £1 ( I can’t remember the exact price) but I love it and will definitely buying some more.

Passion for Fashion Competition

12 Sep

So this is the first ever blog competition that I’ve entered, so I’m hoping that it’s okay.  This post is for MoneySuper Market’s Passion For Fashion Competition, where you have to create 5 outfits for under £200.  The categories are party, outdoor, office, first date and casual wear.

Party

I choose a classic little black dress for tha party look, as I feel that you can never go wrong with that.  The dress also has lace detailing which was seen frequently on the A/W 12 catwalks.  The shoes and bag add a nice splash of colour in a sophisticated red.  There is a lot of  bead detailing in the bag, which hasn’t shown too well in the picture.  Altogether this outfit only comes to £83.98, which I feel is a great price! (I didn’t include a jacket in this outfit as most party’s will be in doors during the winter, however if you were wanting to include a jacket it would still workout at less than £200).

Outdoor

For the outdoor outfit my first thought was jeans and jumper in order to keep warm! So I chose a cute cream owl jumper from boohoo.com and skinny jeans from New Look. For the jacket I chose a classic mac style. I love the Blowfish boots from Schuh, which have a lovely furry top that I believe can also be turned up.  For accessories I added a chunky knit scarf, checked bag and umbrella (because it always rain in winter).  I chose this particular umbrella from Marks and Spencers as it has a dog head at the end, similar to the ones seen at Burberry.  Altogether this outfit comes to £198.47.

Office

I’ve never worked in an office before so I wasn’t entirely sure what to choose, so I decided to go for neutral colours.   The dress is from Topshop and has peplum detailing which will continue to be a big trend throughout A/W 12.  I decided on a bag that would be large enough to hold notebooks.  The shoes are from Stylist Pick, and only have a small heel and would therefore should be comfortable enough to wear during a full day at work.  Altogether this outfit costs £160.98.

First date

For my fist date look I decided to go for a girly look, but toughen it up a little.  The dress is in purple which is one of the seasons hottest colours.  The stud detailing on the blazer and boots help toughen up this floaty girly dress, but still make it look pretty.  To accessories I added a gorgeous snake-skin style clutch bag.  I think its can be difficult to choose a first date look and I believe that this outfit manages to look dressy without being over the top.  Altogether this outfit comes to £195.97.

Casual

And last but not least my casual outfit.  For this I decide to pair a T-shirt from moretvicar.co.uk and a tartan skirt from H! by Henry Holland @ Debenhams.  As the weather’s getting cooler I think this is best paired with a pair of thick tights and a warm jacket.  I feel that this outfit creates a casual but stand out look. Altogether this outfit comes to £191.96.

Although I have created 5 outfits, from the clothes and accessories from each category could be mixed together to create new outfits so if all were bought you could have more than 5 outfits for less that £1000!

Holiday in Spain

5 Sep

I recently returned from Spain after a weeks holiday in Moraira, and I’m already missing the sun.  We were actually staying just outside the town of Moraira in a lovely villa which was a short walk to the beach.  The town of  was about a 20 minute walk away, which as fine in the morning but wasn’t great during the afternoon.  However there is a large car park in town and therefore only a short trip away.

The main town area was wonderful, full of gorgeous little shops, cafe’s and restaurants.  The shops range from selling high-end designer wear to little boutiques and some beach/tourist style shops.  Due to the wide variety of shops there really was something for everyone, I bought quite a few things while I was here and have included a small list of shops at the bottom.  There is also plenty of restaurants to choose from, so there is something that will suit everyone.  Most of the restaurants have at least a couple of vegetarian options.  I would say the best meal that we had during our stay was at Restaurante El Raco De L’arros , the vegetable paella was amazing.

You Can Never Have Enough Jewellery

14 Aug

I’ve decided to do a quick post on some gorgeous jewellery that I’ve seen recently.

 

Newlook, £5.99

I like this ring as I think it looks quite unusual and is a lovely statement piece.

Mango, £17.99

These cute little elephant earrings have lots of detail and are available in both gold and silver.

Urban Outfitters, £26.00

This watch is cute as well as simple meaning that it would be a great watch for work.

Newlook, £4.99

Gorgeous purple feather and skull necklace in purple, one of this seasons hottest colours, also available in black.

Sam’s Designs £5.00

This is one of the bracelets from my Etsy shop and there is a 15% off using the code DISCOUNT15.  I highly recommend looking on Etsy for jewellery as some sellers only make one of each item meaning that no one else will have the same jewellery which I think is really cool.

H&M £3.99

Cute 5 pack bracelet set, perfect for brightening up outfits.
