take me to tiffanys

This is actually my first scheduled post because I was so in the mood to post on Sunday night so I thought I would post it in a couple of days rather than post two posts in one night. I really want to start taking outdoor pictures but I would have to get someone to take the photos and that makes me nervous but I really need to experiment with this.

I absolutely love my outfit in these pictures, I feel really happy with my wardrobe at the moment, I've been going shopping so much recently that it would be bad for my not to be happy. I really need to stop spending now Christmas is on the way.

I feel really classy in this outfit for some reason, I think it has a bit of a retro feel to it and I feel almost Audrey Hepburn esque even though I don't look like her! I am so happy with my new coat, I had walked past the H&M window and thought "ohh i like that" but my boyfriend dragged me a way and I'm glad he did because I found it for half the price last week so it was only £20 which I think is amazing! I actually like the coat undone too which is normally rare and the fur can be detached, so in love!

Coat: H&M
Jeans: Topshop
Wedged Boots: Primark

I love my £1 hair bun at the moment because it's so easy and I love how good it looks. My hair bun has been a joke with me and my friend as I bought a white one because I didn't realise they even did brown ones so I must purchase one even though I can normally hide the bun pretty well!



I apoligise for this posey picture, I was really struggling to get a full length shot and this was the best one. I must invest in a camera tri pod because I take photos using a stall and a mini drawers at the moment and it isn't ideal!

Top: H&M
Cardi: H&M
Belt: Primark
Jeans: Topshop
Boots: Primark
I bought these gorgeous boots last year in the sale in Primark, at the time I thought they were pricey for Primark at £15 even in the sale but I am so glad I bought them because I love them and they are so worth the money. They are a size too big because they didn't have my size but I just wear an extra pair of socks and tie the shoe laces up tight and they are so comfy which is an added bonus!

Primark

These were my favourite nails last week, I love how cute they are and they made me happy when I looked at them. The white is just a Rimmel nail tip polish and the cute purple is Barry M, Berry. I have since painted my nails white with black polka dots (previously posted about) and I had about five compliments at work today from customers, from both men and women so that made me smile.

Barry M, Berry
Rimmel, Nail Tip Whitener

I hope you have enjoyed reading my blog!
Would love to hear from you.

autumn leaves

I have been so out of the blogging circuit lately, I've had a lot going on recently and haven't had time to do outfit pictures. I took these pictures last week and the more I look at the pictures, the less I like my outfit but I wanted to show you my new jumper which I bought in Tesco for only £10 as it was on offer! I have been shopping so much recently and bought two coats in three days so I've said to myself that I have to stop and put anything I would like on my Christmas list instead.

I am sooo excited for Christmas, I love getting together with my family, playing games, eating lovely food and of course opening presents! I'm hoping to get new GHDs from my parents because I've had my latest ones for about five years now so I think it's time I get some nice shiny new ones.

I can't wait to show you my new coats and the other new bits I have recently bought! I'm planning on doing a nail post next as I have a few nail photos to share with you because I have been loving my nails lately!

Jumper: F&F Tesco
Dress: H&M
Tights: Sainsburys



The jumper colour hasn't really pictured very well, it seems very orange in the last picture but it's a deep orangey/red in real life. I love this colour because it reminds me of the fallen leaves in Autumn.


Anyway I hope to share my latest purchases with you soon.
Thanks for reading as always!

she's so cinderella

I've finally finished one of my assignments today which is in for this week but I've still got to write another one so I have a quick window to post! I went to a firework display yesterday and then I went out for my friend's birthday and I found it quite comical how my outfit and look completely transformed. I thought I would share my almost 'before and after' photos with you because I'm sure you'll find it pretty funny too, as my boyfriend and I did.

Ok so this is my frumpy farmer look which I wore to my local firework display:
Hat: H&M
Coat: New Look
Scarf: Miss Selfridge

And this is my almost Cinderella transformation for my night out:

Dress: Peacocks
Bag: (A little shop in Brighton, called JuJu I think)
Socks: Asos
Wedges: New Look
I love this outfit I have to admit, I love the classic shape of this dress and it was only about £20 when I bought it. I also thought I would go for socks with my swede wedges to add a little something. They are really cute up close as they are lacy with a frill but you can't really appreciate them or my wedges in this picture unfortunately! I bought this lovely little bag years ago in Brighton and it's been my little treasure ever since.

Who else thinks with a little bit of make up and quick change, we can transform so comically?

let's get shirty.

I haven't blogged in so long, I have been trying to get uni essays done and seem to have a lot going on at the moment but I'm trying to be better!

Shirt: Primark
Top: H&M
Belt: Primark
Jeggings (which you can't see): M&S


I have recently been really wanting a checked shirt because I love how versatile they are so I dug an old Primark shirt out of my wardrobe. It's actually too small for me now so I decided to leave it undone. I curled my hair with the Babyliss Curling Wand, I'm still not sure about it as I haven't had it very long and I don't feel like I've got my desired effect just yet.

I've done some window shopping and picked some of my favourite shirts and I'm going to share them with you. Enjoy!



I've also painted my nails ombre style as I have wanted to do this for ages. I think the colours could be better but I just had to use what I have!

From thumb to pinky: Rimmel 60 secs Funtime Fushia, No7 Me!Me!Me!,
George (Asda) Groove, Miss Guided MissBehave, Models Own Pastel Pink

I hope you have enjoyed reading.
Anybody else loving the shirts and blouses?
