You move so fast, makes me feel lazy

I trekked to London today all on my lonesome which is something I never really done before - I didn't get too lost so it was pretty successful, it was absolutely freezing though. I visited Kensington Palace to see the Enchanted Palace exhibition as I needed to go to a exhibit for my Final Major Project which is based all around fairy tales. Ideas are very much welcome! Photography was prohibited which was annoying.

This is one of those outfits which you plan in your head for days so I was really looking forward to wearing it, I'm so sad haha! Unfortunately the pictures aren't the best which is a bit of a shame!

Should definitely have made more of an effort with these pictures - maybe put some make up on for starters! At the end of the day, I'm showing you the clothes not myself :)  If you want to know where anything's from just comment, I'm too tired - London is knackering!

Red Dalmatian

I'm sure you're all very aware of the latest Topshop Unique collection pawing it's way down the catdogwalk. If you're unfamiliar then have a look at this post on Topshop's blog. Much of the collection is inspired by Cruella De Ville and the dalmatians!

Being a rather large fan of nail art, I couldn't wait to get some dalmatian print on my claws! Is this possibly the new leopard print?! I promptly dug out my white nail varnish forgetting how awfully gloopy it was, I tried however and failed miserably. After abandoning the white, I opted for red, the second best colour I think for Cruella. I used Barry M's bright red which I won in Lily's giveaway :)

Look at my hideous painting haha! Anyway.. I don't think they're quite as pretty as leopard print but they were a hell of a lot easier to do!

Hand Harness

For some bizarre reason it feels as though I haven't blogged for ages when in fact it was only yesterday! Maybe it's those insanely long days at college - only 90 days left until I leave though, whoooop.

Here's a few pictures of my new hand harness/hand ring from asos, which I've been meaning to share with you all for about a week now. I've wanted one of these since before Christmas, but had trouble finding the one I wanted. Urban Outfitters had a few but they were shockingly pricey!

As much as I love this, it is very delicate and generally just a pain to wear and to get on and off. 

I hope everyone has had a good week and are going to have a good weekend, mine's had it's highs and lows.

I returned from Hobbycraft this evening (I brought a giant cupcake mould :D I couldn't resist, especially as it was in the sale!) to find a pretty package waiting for me. If you aren't aware, I won Lily's giveaway the other day, very very exciting! Prepare for pictures...
Beautifully wrapped :)
Gold clasp clutch
Teehee ;)

A mountain of doilies! Will have to put them in every possible space in the house :P
My favourite ♥ Vintage Jaeger cardigan, it screams Chanel to me though!

In an array of patterns and sizes!
Being put to good use already. (Don't ask me why I have a bunny in a birdcage, he seems to fit in there well)

My mum wants to get her hands on the cardigan! She'll have to fight me. I just wanted to say thank you again Lily, I truly love everything and everything goes so well together too! She's put a lot of effort into it - likewise with her blog. I'm actually wearing the rings this very moment! I'm going to London on Monday and I plan on wearing the cardigan, rings and nail varnish, I can't wait :)

Serious Lust List

Firstly wanted to say I've very nearly hit 50 followers which I find pretty scary yet terribly exciting! So, thank you everyone for that :)
I have two things which I'm itching to get my hands on, the first I can't actually get out of my head!
I think they look much better on however! I love the chunky heel, the ditsy print and the high strap.
Trouble is, the beauties are all sold out :( I've looked all over the internet and no luck! I shall keep looking though.

And the second item is this YSL-esque ring:
Which is from H&M but whenever I go in, they don't have it! I should probably just order it off the website, seems slightly pointless though just for a ring. I wouldn't mind owning the silver and turquoise version either. I must say it's quite a steal at just £3.99! 

Have a nice evening guys, I'm off out for student night - wheyy! Also, if anybody for whatever reason knows how I can acquire a pair of those size 6 badboy shoes pretty please leave a comment!

Sunday Overload

Hey guys, hope you're all well. I feel like I have a tonne of things to say to you but actually thinking over it I only have three main things, haha.

#1. I received a very exciting email last night from Lily (RedBrickLipstick) informing me that I was the winner of her giveaway! This is the first giveaway I've won so I'm extremely excited about it :D I'm particularly looking forward to receiving the vintage Jaeger cardigan because of the military vibe to it (I love all things military) and it looks warm - I can't stand the cold and I've come to the conclusion there isn't going to be any sun anytime soon here in England! I'm also really pleased about the vintage doyleys because I've plans to put them all round my room. The other bits are also really great too and they shall be treasured! Please go have have a look at her blog, not only is it lovely - she is too :)

#2. I went to New Look today to get a sheer shirt, the stuff in store was pretty different to that on the website so initially I was a little disappointed. They tend to place different clothes behind newer ones though so I had a good rummage and found a shirt which I'm happy with! I was keeping an eye out for things which I featured on my wishlist the other day - didn't see any of it.
I wanted quite a simple sheer shirt until I watched this video the other day and saw the shirt Ellie Goulding was wearing with the dipped hem at the back, I love the way it floats it looks so pretty!

Sheer Shirt - New Look
Tube Skirt - New Look
Batwing jumper - New Look
Red top - Primark

I've just realised you can't even see the back. Great! Never mind, you get the gist right? Huge apologies for my hair/face/general ew-ness! Photos today did not go well. The stripey batwing jumper is what I wore to go shopping and I wore thick black ribbed tights instead of the socks. Which brings me onto the socks.. 

#3. As some of you may know I've been having a huge clear out of my room and I found these Urban Outfitters socks with lace panels up the sides, these were a freebie from a freshers fare when I first started college! I love them.

Also, I managed to get my mum into Lush! She even said she wanted to go up to Bluewater and go there.. Yessss! Hello shopping spree. Sorry for the humongous post, I actually have a tonne of other stuff I could bore you with but I think enough is enough! Enjoy your Sunday evening.

Borrowed from Mum #1

Hey everyone :) Hope you're all having a lovely wet weekend. As some of you may have noticed I've changed the layout, I don't like the header though so that'll be going! Please tell me honestly what you think.

So recently, my mum has purchased some really great items which I keep 'borrowing'! She seems to have taken a liking to Topshop :D The only annoying thing is, she hasn't got the same sized feet as me and we're not the same size (I just wear her tops oversized) but I can't wear her skirts/trousers etc. Never mind though :)
First up, which arrived yesterday from ASOS is this gorgeous briefcase bag.

Wish list #2

Today was a classic example of me looking for something in particular (block heels) on a certain website (New Look) and completely loosing track of what I intended! Cheekily I comprised a whole list of things that I'd like to add to my wardrobe, all of which from New Look may I add.

1. White Sheer  Dip Hem Shirt: I need a sheer shirt I must be the only person on blogspot not to have one?!
2. Nude Dip Hem Blouse: Will have to see this in real life, looks a bit frumpy in the picture!
3. Diamanté Gem Earrings: Matching earrings to accompany the ring below.
5. Peter Pan Tunic Dress: I like the colour and it's cute :)
6. Scalloped Tie Front Vest: I tried the Topshop one of these on, and the quality was appalling! The shoulders were coming unstitched and they were wonky :\ I prefer the tie in the New Look ones anyway.
7. Punchout Lace Up Heel: Leaning more towards the purple as I have a pair of pink heels already, but to be honest I'll have any! The black and grey are gorgeous too!

I got my first tag the other day...! And then another two come along! I'm a bit a bit unsure of how to approach three tags all in one go so I've decided to do the one that came first (they're all pretty much the same anyway!)
Thank you to Love bug goes clumsy, Turtles nap and Fashion around the clock all of which I think you should check out :)

Here are the rules:
1. Thank and link back to who gave you the award.

2. Share seven things about yourself.
3. Pass it along to seven blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy.
4. Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award.

Seven things about myself:
1. I've been a vegetarian for over four years now, ever since I was little I've never liked meat and always used to leave it till last!
2. I'm so indecisive about things I annoy myself.
3. I hate throwing away my old toys and teddy bears because I hate to think of them lying in amongst all the rubbish somewhere all cold, sad and unloved ;( 
4. I'm left handed :) 
5. I love being in places where nobody has a clue who I am.
6. I've officially ran out of wardrobe space and have now started hanging clothes from my bed and invented a floordrobe!
7. I keep special clothes tags and pin them all up from my corkboard.

7 lovely blogs to follow:
(I tried to pick some which a lot of you may not have seen before :))

And lastly, to make this post a little more substantial, I have a £10 Body Shop gift voucher which I don't know how to spend? I have way too much Body Butter so I don't need any more! I want to try the Hemp products ;) and these eye shadows look lovely.

Has anyone got any recommendations?

Tan Spot 50s Sundress

I've been dying to show you all this dress which I brought on Saturday, with Valentine's Day over and all the excessive lovey dovey posts gone the time has come! I first saw this dress on Lydia Lee's wish list last week, I liked it, but not enough to buy it. Then when I was in Topshop my mum pointed it out to me and I said "yeah I know it's nice isn't it" but I still didn't have a proper look at it. On my third encounter with the dress as I walked past I finally noticed the back detail and fell in love! There were only three left, luckily one in an 8!

I got it for £33 something (yay for student discount!) which I don't think is bad for a Topshop dress, I'll be able to wear this in the day and maybe the evening. It's also a classic item which probably won't go out of fashion :)

I was going to do look book with all the things I might wear with this dress, what colours would work well but I decided against it because otherwise when I next wear it you will have seen it before! I think a turquoise nail varnish would work really well. I think it also needs a belt? Waist belts never fit me so if anybody knows of any shops that make belts small let me know! If not I'm going to have a look in kids places :\

No face shots today because I woke up and have something going on with my eye! It's like half the size of the of other, lol.
