Hey guuuuuys. I'm not going to say much. I've been a bit quiet of late but just have a lot on at the moment. It's warming up a bit outside which is lifting my spirits. Slightly. Soz for the lack of posing/pictures in this post. Didn't have my camera so had to use my cellular phone and wasn't really sure what I was doing. That sounds weird. Cannot wait for the days when I won't have to wear a jacket any more (even though I'm not wearing a jacket in this post....so yeah that doesn't make sense.) I'm a little bit obsessed with accessories at the moment. Definitely living up the my new year resolution. Maybe a bit to the extreme but hey. Went on my first trip to Forever 21 and Oh. My. God. Why had I not been before?! Got a few new pieces including a LOT of necklaces that I will no doubt show ya'll soon. Actually, I'm probably going to have to do another haul post. Hope you don't mind. I kinda like looking at peoples hauls. Maybe that's just because I'm a nosy parker. Peace.

Oooooookay, so I've been a bit naughty lately and bought A LOT of new stuff. Ooops. I know my mum is going to read this and lecture me about having too many clothes. Or tell me to sell some. But fear not o' wise one! I have put a lot of stuff on eBay so this kind of cancels it all out. Some of the items here you will have seen in previous posts, but this is the haul in a nutshell so thought I would put everything together that I have bought over the last 2 weeks or so. Literally could not stop online shopping. So. Addictive. I would just be playing on my phone, and then open the eBay app. Force of habit. I had some Christmas money left over and I didn't want to spend it all so charity shops, sales and places like eBay meant my money went a really long way and I still have a lot left to save away for Billy and I's holiday to Orlando and Miami!! I know it looks like I've gone a bit mad, but I don't feel so guilty buying all this stuff due to having an eBay clear out. The bikini is a bit random - it does stick out like a sore thumb. A bikini. In winter. Hmmm. Well, it was £3 reduced from £20 so I couldn't say no to that! Plus, one can never have too many bikinis. I know they say when sale shopping, only buy things that you would actually pay full price for to stop impulse buying I guess. But I wouldn't pay full price for a bikini in Topshop anyway! £20, I mean really. Come on. So whateeeevs, £3. The Primark suit I saw on Lulutrixabelle's blog and fell in love with immediately, so I managed to track one down. It wasn't easy. Also the jacket arrived from the eBay seller wet! Eww. But it's fine now after I freshened it up. Anyway, if you want to check out my items on eBay, click here. More sooooon.

Head first baby, how the good time feelin' lingers...

T-Shirt - American Apparel
Shorts - Urban Outfitters
Jacket - Primark (Sale)
Shoes - Underground Creepers
Bag - Next (Charity Shop)
Bracelets - Topshop
Silver Spike Necklace - Azora Rocks
Gold V Necklace - Urban Outfitters
Hamsa Necklace - Tunisia
Hey guuuuuys! Just a quick post - I'm about to put a hell of a lot of stuff up on eBay as it's free listing weekend so I will be sure to tweet the link and put a blog post up about it as well in case any of you are interested. I picked up this bag in my local charity shop on my way home from work on Friday. I love charity shopping but sometimes it can be a bit hit and miss but I think I've been lucky recently as I always seem to find something for a great price and a great cause too. The bag was only £5 and I think it just adds a little more detail, with the accessories, to what is generally quite a simply outfit. Shorts and t-shirt actually. The t-shirt is my boyfriends. He didn't even notice, so yeah, mine now! Anyway, I hope you are all praying for snow as much as I am! SNOW DAY!! Oh and I've come to the conclusion that my arms are weird. Do they look normal?? Side on...I don't think so. What's wrong with me?! The product of breaking them three times as a child. Sigh. Ta ta x

It's Like Raaaaaain

 
Blazer - Topshop
Jumper - Topshop 
Trousers - Zara
Shoes - Underground Creepers
Bracelets - Topshop
Rings - Topshop/Greece
Bag - Vintage
Necklace - Primark
I've had that song stuck in my head all day. But I do love it. And often want to scream it from the hilltops. Occasionally. I got these slouch trousers in Zara sale and adore them. I don't have a great variety of trousers,  leggings...yes. Trousers. No. The top was also in the Topshop sale, £7. Bargain. I went all out on snapping today's outfit for you due to looking at my last post and thinking, eurgh. Apologies for not putting a lot of effort in there. No make-up. Looking like death. Dull setting. Generally just very poor. Soz. I hope today's snaps make up for it! I've been doing soooo much online shopping lately, I literally need to step away from my laptop and reassess. It's not like I've spent LOTS of money, mainly just jewellery from eBay that's like 99p but I just can't stop. I have a feeling my work are going to get annoyed having to sign for so many packages. Meh. Sticking to my new year's resolution of accessorising better!

All That Glitters

Sequin Dress - Motel Rocks
Shoes - Underground Creepers
Bracelet - Azora Rocks
Leather Jacket - Goldie London
Hey guuuuys. So this is a very quick post, I'm absolutely starving and about to go and collect my PIZZZAAAAAH. This beautiful dress is what my boyfriend got me for Christmas. It was actually the dress I put as my first choice when at the Motel Xmas party, but I got my second choice. Boo. The shoes are the product of my recent shopping spree. More like a rampage. I went a bit mad. I've wanted a pair of Underground Creepers for soooo long, my fake ones are just not cutting it anymore, so when I spotted these in Topshop sale I grabbed them and prayed that my clown feet would fit into the only size left. A 5. But ladies, Cinderelliiii shall go to the ball. THEY FIT. In fact, the 6 would have been absolutely huge on me. Big sizing I guess though right? Anyhooo, they were half price, £40. Bargain. Also, found it a bit weird that my local Topshop were stocking Underground Creepers but hey, I'm not complaining. Oh, and I really must stop wearing this jacket but I can't help it. IN. LOVE. It is in fact a part of me. Anyways, gotta go! Mwah!

God gave rock and roll to you...

Jacket - Goldie London
Sheer Sequin Dress - Nungapunga
Tights - H&M
Boots - H&M
Necklace - Topshop
I couldn't resist hitting Topshop's sale on my way home from work. I did brave it the day after boxing day, but it was just too much. Plus, they slash their sale prices even more after 2nd January soooo yeah, I thought I'd wait a bit and get a little more for my money. Might have spent a little more than I intended to but hey. The necklace here is just one small purchase I made in my Topshop haul so there will be more to follow soon.  I got these boots in the H&M in Helsinki and LOVE them so much. I didn't take any heels away with me for new year (baggage allowance issues, sigh) and came across these which were PERFECT, especially with the grip on the sole for the snowy/icy weather over there. I've worn my Jeffrey C's to death so it was about time I got a new pair of bootieeees. You may have seen a couple of posts I did recently where I showed you some lovely items my friend Jo has designed (her nungapunga range here) and this sheer dress is another one of her lovely designs. I did a post of the white version here which I am wearing as a top. So versatile. Absolutely love them!! You can check out her range which is available to buy on eBay here. More soon :)

2012 in outfits...

It's a new year. A new start. Time to reflect on 2012. I always find that my style goes through phases at different times in the year. But I think we are all the same. No? I went through a lycra phase (definitely my fav) punk, girly and sporty. I find winter the hardest time of year as I want to dress like I would in the summer but unfortunately, just can't. Unless I want to die of hypothermia. I hate the cold and having to cover everything up (not that I want to run around naked, you know what I mean.) So here's a little post of all my 2012 outfits. My new year's resolution is to be more adventurous with accessories. As you can probably tell, I wear the odd necklace and bracelet but I have never been an accessories person so we will see how that pans out. I wonder what phase I'll be sporting in 2013. Who knows. Only time will tell.
