I've got the blues



 Top - ASOS
Jeans - Topshop
Shoes - Zara
Bag - River Island
Okay lets clear this up now, I don't have the blues but I love love love love the colour blue at the moment! To the point where if I see anything blue I make myself walk in a different direction before I have a wardrobe full of blue clothes *covers face*. Anyway! finally another outfit post I'm slacking in this area at the moment but I'm very picky and if I don't like the pictures I wont post them! However I was finally satisfied and I have to say I love this outfit. These jeans are so comfortable, there are from Topshop and I love them. For once I'm not wearing an outfit that's purely from ASOS!
Oh and these shoes... I'm not really a heals person but I went to a Zara in France recently (I went for the day) and I just had to have them their not too high and of course I love the colour. I'm not really a heals person but I'm trying to break myself in gently and these have become my favourite pair.
Hopefully I'll do another outfit post soon I mean all I've been doing is shopping but I must say these assignments and all the revision does get in the way!

Make a Statement

1st - Topshop 2nd & 3rd ASOS
Hello Mi Lovelies :)
Statement necklaces? This spring/summer they are a must! As you can see I have been on a bit of a statement necklace haul! (not all at once) I just love them, you can team them with a nice simple outfit (I normally wear mine with a pair of jeans and a tee) or wear them with something a little more dressy but I just feel they really make an outfit. There's a lot of choice out there however I'm going to try and stop myself from buying anymore now!
So go on make a statement...

Book Review: The Fault in our stars

*Picture from google*
"It's hard as hell to hold onto your dignity when the risen sun is too bright in your losing eyes"
This is a bit of a different post from me today, recently I've been travelling to placement and to pass time have been reading books on my kindle (hence the pic from google) and I just had to do a post of my recent read 'the fault in our stars' by John Green. Let me start off by saying I am actually quite upset I finished this book so quickly I just didn't want it to end! This book is based on following the journey of a young cancer sufferer and the effect cancer has, not just on the sufferer but also everyone involved in their life. As upsetting as this book is at times this book is it's full of small quotes and ideology's that really get you thinking... the one I quoted above is definitely my favourite.  
If anything this book gives you a reason to enjoy life and opens your eyes to various things, although a sad subject definitely a book I recommend, so get it.. now!

Hello Sunshine

 Bag - Zara
Hey Guys!
I'm in a good mood today! It's my day off placement and the sun is shining finally. I made a cheeky little purchase today I popped into Zara and fell in love with this bag. Let me explain, Every year I have an obsession with something last year it was leopard print and this year it's yellow! As soon as I saw this bag I picked it up, I had to have it! I also saw it in green I'm not sure if it comes in any other colours but its a great bag and a decent size for an occasion where a big handbag is not needed! I shouldn't Have brought this bag as I have just booked tickets to New York but I promise no more big purchases..
Hope your enjoying the sunshine!

Clean Slate

Hey Guys!
Why is white so beautiful?
I'm going to be honest in the past I would stay as far away from white as I could, not because I didn't like it but because most of the time I would end up with food all over me! But I've decided to give it another try and all white outfit can be quite scary so If it doesn't quite float your boat I would suggest jeans and a white blazer would be just as good! Anyway I really think everyone should give white a go this spring/summer it adds beautiful simplicity to any outfit. Oh and can I just say how cute are the shoes above!? they would look great with a pair of socks!
 Bag - River island @ ASOS
Jacket - Topshop
Skirt - Zara
Shoes - River Island
Ta Ta for now
P.s. this is procrastination at its finest I should be writing my assignment as I type this blog post!

Sports Luxe 86

Top - Topshop
Trousers - Topshop
Shoes - River Island
Necklace - ASOS
Watch - NEXT
Sunglasses - Topshop
Wow, I'm actually doing an outfit post SHOCK. It's been a while... to be honest the weather has not made me want to go outside and pose for pictures I know I know its not a good excuse but unfortunately its the truth.
However I woke up and saw sunshine outside! I couldn't miss the chance and I was even able to take pictures without shivering BONUS. Anyway I love this top from Topshop its so easy just to throw on with some jeans I sometime wear it with a beanie for a different look. However I like the smart take on this top with these trousers with the cute little splits at the bottom also from Topshop. Rather than wear trainers I thought I'd team these with some smart flats. I think my little experiment worked!
Lets hope the sun sticks around, it puts a smile on my face

Simply Amazing

Okay... I was waiting for my bus this morning and browsing on my phone when I came across this website shoes of prey. As I am ever so curious I had to check this out, a website where you can design your own shoes! Simply Amazing. Instantly I began playing around with the different designs and materials, It's like a more classy version of Nike id I guess!
Slight problem unless you happen to suddenly come across £200 you may find it slightly expensive (I do!) But to design your shoes for £199 I think it could be a perfect item to put on your birthday wish list would definitely be worth it.
Here's a couple I designed quickly as an example
Snake skin and leopard print
Red suede and black sole
When I was younger I used to love designing my own outfits now I can design my own shoes!
Pretty Amazeballs if you ask me!
Check it out!

River Island


SO its been a while since I posted anything clothes related ... As I've said I'm on placement for a while so have had to put my blog to one side for a bit but I am constantly thinking of things I want to post especially as I feel the weather is finally improving! (wishful thinking?)
Here's a small wish list of some items I've had my eye on at the moment I am in love with prints, white and gold! That's all that seems to be catching my eye I feel these items will be great for spring through to summer...
