i love the colour of this dress! i love corral and nude colours at the moment. i think its a perfect spring colour. the style is flattering for all shapes and the length of the dress is perfect. 
i tried it on in the shop with black tights and it looked equally as good. 

this handbag is defiantly a key piece in every girls wardrobe. it is a classic style and size and leather never goes  out of fashion! although it is pricey for a handbag, it is good quality. defiantly will invest in this.

these shoes are lovely. they are classic, black, suede with a 13 cm heel. they are perfect. they will go with everything like dresses, jeans, casual and formal. perfect.

i love these shoes! the glitter heels are so amazing! they are suede and sparkly, the perfect combination. i am completely head over heels for these.

these iPhone cases are so cute! i have managed to find these on ebay, roughly pricing around £10 each. a bit pricey but so worth it! they are cute, individual and amazing colours. obviously i went for the light pink colour, but there are so many others to choose from.

what do you like from my wish list? which should i invest in first?

this months issue of ELLE magazine i got a free mascara from SOAP AND GLORY.
worth £10 i thought id try it out. 

its called THICK & FAST it claims to create volume in your lashes. 

i don't have long eyelashes and i am blonde. so i always wear mascara.

overall i am impressed with the outcome. i like the brush as its big and thick.

it does not clump on my eyelashes and is easy to apply. i love this product and will definatly be buying it again. 

what do you think?

VALENTINES DAY and new clothes rail

so today is the day. and i did get something off my wish list - in fact, i got 2!
im super lucky.

i got a dip hem dress. its more gorgeous on than i could ever imagine!
i love the back and the length. its so flattering!

it was £42 from BANK FASHION. the fit is right, the length is right and the quality of material is amazing.

i am wearing this dress with sparkly heels from NEWLOOK. they were £18.

i also got a REGAL ROSE bracelet. it has petrol colour beads with a silver skull. i love the colour, its perfect and can be worn with anything. the colours means it goes with everything.

i have a lot of clothes. and was slowly running out of room in my wardrobe. so i invested in this gem.
it was only £8.99 from ARGOS.
it was so easy to assemble and only took 5 minutes. 
i can fit 4 pairs of heels underneath it which is a big bonus, as i have way too many shoes for my wardrobe. 
this is a quick and easy way to keep all your clothes hanging and spaced out. 
defiantly a good buy. 

did you all have a good valentines day? what did you get?

as you all know, i love shoes. i recently stumbled across this site and I'm not going to lie, I'm in LOVE!

Crystal Boutique is a site of custom made crystallised shoes. every crystal is individually applied which makes it even more special and glitzy.

i have to have a pair of these. 

celebrities such as Amy Childs and Stacey Solomon own pairs.
and who can blame them! if i had the money id have a pair for every day of the week!

these have to be may absolute favourite.

these shoes are called STARDUST. they are crystal heels with a 6 inch heel. The whole shoes have been covered in over 7000 clear crystals. 
WOW thats all i can say. i need these in my life. i need a job.

they take up to 3 weeks to be delivered, but I'm sure its worth the wait. they are fabulous!
i especially like the detail of the crystal bow on the sole - they do this on the bottom of every shoe.

what do you think?

so, my new necklace came today, and i am in LOVE!

it even more beautiful than i could ever imagine. 
it is the most adorable necklace I've ever owned - i have had non stop compliments today on the train home. 

the packaging is a beautiful leopard print bag which has a little card inside. the time she takes in making it look and feel more special is priceless! 

then you come to the necklace, at only £8 this is a definite buy. i think its so clever how realistic the sweets are!
the chain is perfect length - I'm so glad i chose the gold chain (you are able to get it in silver too)

it is just fabulous! I'm defiantly getting another one asap!
the jewellery on tho site would be perfect as a gift for somebody or just to treat yourself.
have you got anything from TRASHY DOLL?

this dress is fabulous! I'm in love. TOPSHOP at £30 (student discount to £27) they also do this pattern in a skirt which i also love.

i find the pattern very flattering, i also think it can be quite sliming in places and created a perfect hourglass figure.
the long sleeves and high neck line make it a very classy dress that can be dressed up or down with a leather jacket and UGGS.

here is me wearing it with a clutch bag from BANK - £35 and black heels from PRIMARK - £16. the shoes are gorgeous by the way. they have a chunky heel which makes them surprisingly easy to walk in plus so in fashion.

what do think? sorry about the picture below. apparently guys don't know how to use the focus on cameras?

heres another one of my wish lists.
this is a look id wear out for a meal. i think all these items could be worn for casual or smart wear. 

this shirt is AMAZING! i love the sparkle on the collar. i love shirts at the moment, i think they are a great way to smarten up and outfit. it would be great for a job inteview and still look fab!
the shirt is from RIVER ISLAND at an beautiful price of £28!!! I'm stunned, (and not by the collar!)

these shoes, ah, lovely! wedges are a must. I'm not going to lie, i have tried these on in the shop and they are pretty hard to walk in but just look at them! i would put up with blisters to wear theses. 
from SCHUH at the breathtaking price of £68, i would defiantly invest in these. they'd sparkle up any dull outfit! 

these leggins/treggins are so comfy looking. i think the colour is stunning! the line down the middle is also very flattering and lengthens the leg (very good for me) i think this style is a very good compromise between leggins and jeans. I'm not a lover of trousers but i think this is a good mix. 
from H&M at £14.99 isn't a bad price at all. 

these ear cuffs are so practical!!! i don't have the top of my ear pierced and i think this is such a good idea! i especially like the cross earrings. they are so in at the moment and i think with a scruffy ballet bun it would look fabulous! 
at an amazing price of £11 for 3!! from REGAL ROSE this is a must.

and of course, i can't be anywhere without a mulberry. this is stunning. what more can i say. i have a mulberry obsession. 
at £495 this is timeless. from MULBERRY

what do you like off my wish list? hopefully i will get something of this list soon. 


right, i have a big pain when it comes to nails. because I'm a fashion student and was an art student at college, I'm constantly cutting and sticking and basically ruining my nails. its impossible to grow my nails because i always get glue up them or breaking them.

i only wear fake nails or get my nails done when i have finished my work as a treat. - however whilst I'm working, i do still want to have nice looking nails.
but I'm awful at painting them. I'm too impatient and end up smudging them.

until now, i found these beauts in BOOTS. their called NAILEASE.
20 long lasting nail strips - brilliant. (the price was also a bonus of only £3)

i have only just put them on and already i love them. they didn't take long to do, about 20 mins. they are a bit fiddly but i do have freakishly small hands and nails. i only need up using 7 of the strips because i could use them on 2 nails at once.

surprisingly they do stay on! i was apprehensive to start and expecting them to fall off but they've stayed all day. I've washed up, done work, showered and done my day to day jobs.

I'm very impressed. i did get them on offer, but £4.50 also isn't a bad price.

defiantly a must for every girl on the go!

as a poor fashion uni student, i have many wish lists. i can't even afford rent let alone fancy shoes.

even so, here is my latest wish list. 

to start, this dress!!! I'm in love with it -  the drop hem at the back is very flattering for every shape and size. it even fits me and I'm 5"2. the elastic around the waist is flattering and comfy too which is a bonus. a very comfy dress and a must for every girl. 
it can be dressed up or down, a leather jacket and chelsea boots for the day or heels for the night.
it is from BANK FASHION - Rare Cut Out Dip Hem Dress at £45.

this bracelet is gorgeous! i have already bought it in another colour and I'm super tempted to get it this one too! the gold skull is bang on trend and the colour is stunning. 
at £17 from REGAL ROSE, this is a key fashion piece at an amazing price.

shoes!!!! need i say more. these beauties are amazing! i have a thing for leopard print at the moment and these are the ones! wedges are so easy to walk in and the open toes are a great excuse for getting a pedicure. they also look good with tights if your feeling chilly. 
Birthday suit leopard print OFFICE at £85.

i don't really wear lipstick but this nude colour is beautiful. soft colour and soft on your lips. a must to have in your handbag.
REVLON MATTE LIPSTICK at £7.50 (i found this in BOOTS)

then the bag! ahh I'm in love. MULBERRY of course, what else ,classic, leather, small, need i say more? 
pricey and probably never going to happen, but i can wish - one day.

Valentines day.
most girls are stuck on what to wear on valentines day. you need the right balance of no effort and trying too hard. you need have an effortless style that still makes you look classy and beautiful.

here are a few outfits from my own wardrobe i have put together to show you effortless style which can be worn for these different occasions.

  1. going out for a meal or watching a show
  2. going to the cinema
  3. going out for drinks

before i even start girls, you have to remember its only February, and its a very cold February this year - so always remember to have a coat - i would suggest a simple tailored trench coat.
feminine colour, strong colouring and flattering length. perfect for any of the occasions above. the belt around the middle could be changed for a belt that matches your shoes or outfit underneath - Also, something around your waist is very flattering no matter what size you are! it creates an hourglass figure which the guys love!


right, for this you need something that will make him go wow, you need to make an effort but not too in his face. if you have a glitzy dress on, don't have a necklace and wear simple shoes. if you have a plain dress, wear amazing shoes. don't have too much or it will look like you're trying to hard. - remember less is more.
i have chosen this dress to show you. simple, flattering and sparkly! (my favourite part) i would wear nude heels on (a fashion must have at the moment) and thats it. the sparkles on the dress compete it.

i bought this dress from BANK FASHION, from their RIBBON RANGE at £45.
im not sure if this exact one is available anymore but there are plant of these style dresses out there.


for this one, you need to be casual yet something to distract him from the film. for this one i have picked burgundy ponte treggins from newlook - £19.99, they are so comfy and a good mix of leggins and trousers. i have put them with a gorgeous kimono from H&M, i bought it in the sale for £5! - bargain. 

Kimonos are a fantastic way of hiding those bumps you don't want on show! i love the feel of satin and i adore the way it falls. so chic! i would finish this outfit off with simple flats and normal handbag.
you can find Kimonos from most high street stores, some more expensive than others, but you're paying for quality of the material.
underneath i would just wear a simple black or white top, nothing to fancy. maybe a necklace or bracelet that he buys you would finish the look off nicely!!!


for this theme, Heels is a must, if its a club or bar, you don't want to be the sorest girl there, get him to notice you! my advise, get your pins out! sitting on a bar stool looks the best when you have a bit of leg on show. (just remember to fake tan before) for this look id go for a short yet floaty dress. nothing too tight because you don't want to give the wrong impression.
this dress is short and floaty looks feminine, sexy and casual - its a confident yet safe look. it makes you look slimmer than you actually are! genius!
the cross over give the impression on a bigger bust and compliment the sleeves which slims your shoulders. the belt cinches in your waist and the skirt doesn't cling on any unwanted lumps and bumps. this dress was from USC lulu for £30
i would defiantly match this dress up with a black clutch. i would also put this outfit with my shoes that i put in my previous blog.

PRE DATE - always remember to shave, wax, fake tan, moisturise, the works! never try new products on your skin on the day -  you don't want a rash all over your face on a date!
if your having a spray tan - get it a few days before, you don't want that smell following you around!
another tip - wear the perfume he always comments on. its a familiar smell for him and will make him feel at ease with you on the date.
go for simple natural makeup -  let him see your gorgeous natural face - if he doesn't like that, he's not worth it!
casual hair is a must - long curls or a scurfy ballet bun, I'm so glad this look is in fashion. it takes seconds to do and is bang on trend.

i hope this helps you all, let me know how the dates go!!! i'll put a picture up of my date look on the 14th!

TRASHY DOLL is an online shop full of kitsch, quirky, retro and funky Jewellery.

a lot of the jewellery is lovingly handmade using materials such as polymer clay, laser cut acrylic and casting resin.

i absolutely love all of their collection. especially the JAR OF ALLSORTS necklace - Its quirky, fun and colourful.
the price  is amazing - such quality for  not a lot of money!!
i particularly like the jewellery that imitates food, how cool is that! they look so realistic as well.

they are constantly updating and adding jewellery like vintage one off pieces. 
im in love with them and I'm sure you will be too - i'll upload a photo of the necklace after i order it - I CANT WAIT!

look at their Twitter page, Facebook page and Website -


sorry its another jewellery blog, but these have been my favourite brands and i think you should invest in them.

COUTURE - The design and manufacture of fashionable items to a client's specific requirements and measurements.
Juicy couture does exactly that. their jewellery is made to please and it certainly does that.
the items sparkle and so do my eyes.

today I'm showing you my 2 bracelets I've got from JUICY COUTURE. 

this 1st one is a little gem. i found it on ASOS and fell in love with it instantly. i think it was around £60 (reduced obviously) if i had more money i would have invested in the earrings and necklace to match.

i think its an apple on it with sparkles on one half (my favourite bit) sorry the camera doesn't give justice to it, but its super sparkly when it catches the light. 
im not normally one for gold jewellery however i could make an exception for this. it seems to compliment the bold bright colours of the red and green.
the clasp on the side is tight and never un attaches. the box is LUSH!!! it makes it feel so more special with such a gorgeous box. 
 my wrist is small but it still fits on. i just have it over the top on my tops or just with other bracelets. 

the other bracelet is a simple chain. i bought that at Bicester Village. an outlet village you have to visit. its a must. its near oxford. i bought this bracelet for £34. its simple, silver and i wear it everyday.
