❤ I AM MOVING OUT WITH MY LOVE! ❤

We haven’t found the house yet (lol), but we are looking every minute of every day to see what’s online. Does anyone else find it baffling that estate agents want professional people that work full-time but too many close at 5 and don’t open weekends?

WHAT IS THIS CRUEL GAME YOU ARE PLAYING WITH ME PAL!?

My other favourite situation is when a lovely new house is listed…

*DING*

"Ohhh, this is lovely! Let me give them a call"

*RING RING GURL*

"Good morning (insert estate agents name), How can I help?"

"Hi! I saw you've just listed a 2 bed house on Blahblah road and I would love to book a viewing as soon as you can"

"Ohh.. really sorry that house has just been reserved"

"Oh? But it was put online 10 minutes ago?"

"Yep it's gone"

CRAP. SHIT. FUCK. WHAT. HELP.

But now that’s off my chest, I can show you all the crazy, sick, beautiful, lovely, exciting things that I’m going to buy for this fancy new pad I haven’t found yet…

 

Eyelash Fringe Shower Curtain £10

Oh so insta darling, I cannot wait to dance in the shower and feel like a princess wrapping myself in this beautiful peachy dream. What a bloody steal for £10!! I want to buy it now, but I need to make sure the house I get has a shower curtain (#goals)

 

Marston Hanging Mirror £40

I absolutely love a Marston mirror, I love anything vintage, leather looking and rusty so clearly it’s right up my street. John Lewis sell a lot of mirrors like this, but I’m getting mine from Fashion World as its a steal at £40! I probably shouldn’t put this in the bathroom with a frilly shower curtain…

 

Heather Grey Jersey Duvet Cover £45.50

Of course Urban Outfitters made another appearance…

Can you even image how soft this is gonna feel? JERSEY MATERIAL!

I love how minimal this is, and I think Nat will approve too as he loves a bit of soft grey. How cruel would I be to make him sleep in a floral colourful duvet every night? To be honest I don’t think he would even notice!

 

GARNES over-the-door mirror £39

If you don’t go on a trip to IKEA and eat Swedish meatballs are you actually even moving out?

There is no doubt in my mind that my new home will feature a lot of IKEA bits, I mean, every time I go there I buy numerous candles and tons of tupperware… but maybe I should get some stuff I actually need!

This mirror is brilliant, for the obvious fact that it hangs over the door and is space efficient, HUZZAH! I love the two handles it includes too, YAY FOR MORE PLACES TO HANG MY CRAP.

 

Heart of House Sherbourne 12 Piece Dinner Set £17

I bloody love duck egg, it’s such a beautiful minimal colour and I enjoy its subtlety mucho. I don’t think I would ever buy a dinner set that doesn’t support this design, as I am such a messy pup and having the modern high sides helps me look high society whilst keeping my grub where it’s suppose to be!

 

I think I should stop here, otherwise I think I’ll get a bit carried away. I am so excited to start purchasing everything, and decorating my home with my bestest pal that I also give kisses to. What a great way to start 2017!

Also if anyone knows where I can get a huge banging soft rug hit me up because we (I) need all the help we (I) can get!

This post is incredibly hard for me to write, and not for any other reason than not being able to afford all the hot-as-fuck items in my basket. Whilst trying to save for a trip to Dubai, save spending money for Amsterdam and upgrade my camera I am sobbing into a cup of tea browsing all the beautiful items that could be on my feet, round my waist or resting on my shoulders. But fear not, I will just show you through a really botched paint job what I love about what is in my dreamy basket!

So, instead of taking pictures of me attempting to strut my stuff in my new garms, I will have to compensate by showing the blogger world what I lurve.

MUCH NICE VERY GOOD I LIKE IT

This little beauty is made to make me feel like a lady, I know it. Fitting in with the autumnal vibe by sporting a beige and yellow jacquard hem, I know it would be worth the 6,500 pennies it is retailing for (for those bad at math, £65). If I owned this, I would wear it with a black winter wooly hat and feel like Taylor Swift.

MORE JACQUARD? MORE BOMBER? YES PLZ

Ok so every blogger and their dog wants this jacket I’m sure, I first saw it on Asos Anna (dream girl) a while back and I instantly fell in love, I have more recently seen it on Pages By Megan (dream girl #2). At £65 I am hoping it will go into sale, deep down knowing it never will… SOB

freshpaint-0-2016-10-06-09-31-38SO CASUAL SO NICE DRESS UP DRESS DOWN YOU CHOOSE

This tee is amazing, and only £20?! Maybe I can buy this…? I adore the long sleeves and oversized style, oversized is a staple of mine so whenever I have a food pouch no one will know! I am big on embroidery this season, and this tee is fuelling the passion I have for stitching. Missguided Y U DO DIS 2 ME!

freshpaint-0-2016-10-06-09-43-36THE WARMTH, I CAN FEELS IT

I am a cold AF person, so every year I buy about 6 scarfs, and I even wear them during summer. For reals, I do. This scarf is amazing, it is the perfect colours for autumn, it’s huuuge and oooozes style. I need to stop finding stuff that is decent prices, otherwise I will just buy them! This scarf comes at a bargain of £20, and I’m pretty sure there is a matching bag too. HOW ADORABLE.

Hi, don’t mind me, just in shoe heaven… 

These shoes are something else. I adore the colour, style, heel, material and the laces are dope. These shoes definitely warrant being on my wist list, as they come at a hefty price of £96. Man, I can’t put into words how much I would love to rock these beauties with the oversized embroidered t-shirt dress from Missguided! Help me! Ahhh these would also go so good with the ASOS bomber in my list too! Double SOB!

 

SO there you have it, my tears and dreams condensed into one blog post. I was planning on listing 10 but it’s just too much, I can’t bear it.

Thanks as always for reading you delicious bunch xoxo

I’ve come to the conclusion of what type of shopper I am…

I find something I love, and I stick with it. Recently I’ve been trying to only buy key pieces, and purchase things that I don’t have similar in my wardrobe already, but bomber jackets have taken over me.

So much so, that I bought 5. Yep. I. Bought. FIVE.

But now, I get to show you guys my new finds, designs and love for bomber jackets!

DENIM-BLOG-2 DENIM-BLOG-IMG

Easily my favourite purchase from Missguided, and that’s saying a lot. I love a denim jacket as much as the next 80s icon, but I felt that my jackets were very weighty, and it wasn’t really a jacket I could just throw on over an outfit. In comes this little bomb of delight. I got it for an absolute bargain of £17.50 and the quality is flawless, and I cannot rate indigo blue high enough! I adore the ribbed collar and sleeves, adding a casual vibe to my life <3 I cannot tell you how many times I’ve rocked double denim since this bad ass purchase (8, literally 8).

zara-bomb-post zara-bomber-post

Honestly, this material is so so soft I didn’t even know it was suppose to be denim. The design is so minimal and I think that’s what I love the most, this jacket has smartened up any thrown together outfit I have created and I am eternally grateful to Zara for that! The quality for this is unreal for £25.99, they also do it in blue which I am 100% going to treat myself to, hurray for #6!

khaki-bomber-postkhaki-post

Unfortunately this khaki wonder is out of stock 🙁 which isn’t surprising as I got it from New Look for £11!! So the link will just take you to all the bombers that New Look have to offer, this long line bomber is one of my favourites for a night out, it’s light enough to not make you hot and sweaty when gettin’ down in the clurrrrb! I can’t remember how much this bomber was originally suppose to be, but I would definitely trust in New Look for all your bomber needs, their silky ones look INCREDIBLE!

vel-blog velvet-blog

Tah-dah! This silky velvet bomber is everything that 90s me wanted and more, do they sell the matching joggers? This super smooth bomber is the ultimate statement piece, for £34.99. I have so many nostalgic feels in this I cannot contain it! I still haven’t found the outfit that it’ll complete, but I am willing to wait. I want to stroke it forever and always.

OH MY GOD DO YOU LOVE IT AS MUCH AS I DO?

I actually cannot deal with the love I have for this item of clothing. This jacket in my heart was worth every penny, at £48 this is my favourite statement piece. The lining is silver satin, and it makes me swoon. The quality is undoubtably beautiful, and I’ve been able to wear this with so much more than I expected, I especially love how much it matches my pink(ish) tint in my hair, goals for sure.The embroidered flower detail is exquisite and highly compliments the metallic accent. Ahh this jacket gives me chills. You can also get this in black, but (in my opinion) has nothing on this one!

So are you loving bomber jackets as much as I am? If not more? If you have more than 5 I want to see them, and I will most definitely be purchasing them!

Note to self: it is SO hard trying to take your own pictures?! Sorry for my snotty moody face.

Heaven has sent an angel, and his name is Shane Jackson.

For those of you that do not know, I am partial to a hair appointment. I LOVE getting my hair done, and I LOVE sitting in a hairdressing chair being pampered for a couple of hours, feeling like a fresh new gal when I walk out the door onto the streets of Leicester my runway. As you can imagine, I was intrigued and slightly terrified trying out a new hairdressers. My hair is my pride and joy, but after attending the amazing hair event at Rush Hair and Beauty I had to see what it was all about!

I love playing with my hair, and being blonde makes it all the more easy. I wanted to have a subtle but eye-catching change… does that make sense? Probably not. After having a chat with Shane he showed me the most beautiful pinky tint labelled Deep Iced Pearl Milkshake, I took his advice and went for it, imagine all the boys that would come to my yard?*

Due to this only being a toner, I was dubious on how it would take to my hair, and whether my hair was porous enough for it to stick, but in Shane’s words “I wouldn’t have suggested it if I didn’t think it was going to work” and boy, was he right.

I LOVE MY HAIR SO MUCH I FEEL LIKE GRUNGY CANDY FLOSS PRINCESS.

It’s expected to last around 20 washes, but I would expect that it varies for every individual. I was planning to book in again before Shane had even started to dry my hair! What great is that the more you use the toner, the more permanent it becomes, so now I’ve tipped my toe in and now I’m ready to dive into the world of ashy pink <3

Holly from Rush was also experiencing some major hair envy, which makes you love your hair even more right? She was an absolute babe and if she is working during your visit count your blessings, because she is hilarious and I was laughing with at her the whole time!

I left Rush with a new favourite drink**, a new favourite hairdresser and a new lease for life. Yes, it’s that real up in here people.

So girls, if you’re an indecisive blonde like me toying between the idea of having beach babe blonde, icy white or mermaid hair, give Rush Hair (and more importantly Shane) a chance to switch up your hair with their amazing selection of semi permanent dyes, I wish I did it so much sooner!

 


* No boys plz.

Afternoon everyone, I hope wherever you are is a lot more appealing that what I can see outside of my window. Rain, rain, rain.

But, in a couple of weeks I’m heading to Brighton to a wedding, and I’ve never really been to a wedding before! That’s a lie, I’ve been to a wedding that I was also part of, but not as a guest. So understandably I’ve been a panicking pile of poop.

It’s my boyfriend’s brothers wedding, and although I’ve been with my boyfriend for some time now, I haven’t met a lot of his family. There’s so many reasons for me to panic right now!

I checked out Missguided’s “Missbrided” section, but it’s not very me, it almost seems too dressed up for a wedding, but what do I know!

I hit up ASOS to give me some ideas, and now I have 2!

So I don’t know the vibe of the wedding, as in, do I wear a nice chilled maxi and some sandals or do I go for a fitted dress? Well thanks to ASOS’s recent sale, I didn’t have to choose 😉

Formal wedding, girlfriend of the best man dress:

dress1

This beautiful dress from Closet is just my sort of dress, I love a kimono vibe and it’ll help my arms look thinner (WOO!)

It’s delicately wrapped around the waist, singeing in just the right places (hopefully) to make me look a lot more glamorous than I actually am. I adore this print too. It’s so summery and bright, and I’m normally a khaki/navy kinda girl so I’m really excited to try this, at a bargain of £30 too I might just keep it even if it doesn’t make the cut!

Super chill maxi-ng and relaxing (I know, I tried too hard):

dress2

This amazing belted maxi tea dress from Glamorous (in stock in petite) melted my heart, I am in love with the print, and I am desperate to capture a bohemian vibe for Brighton, not sure why, just am! I got this at an absolute bargain of £27.

What’s even better about this dress is that I don’t have to worry about wearing heels, because everyone knows a maxi life is lived in sandals.

Massive props to ASOS for helping a sista out with wedding woes, but I will point out I ordered these before they sent out 10% off sale items for their website being down!

Don’t worry though ASOS, love ya always xo
