46. Cooler Than The Red Dress

I found this dress in a local boutique for just £20! I love the print and the peplum, perfect for a night out glammed up with the girls.


45. Lace

I came across these trousers in H&M last year, they were £5 in the sale and I thought it was rude not to buy them for this price yet wasn't totally sure if I would actually get much wear out of them, yet they are now one of my favorite things in my wardrobe! The nude pallet is so versitile and the shape is great with heels and flats. For this look I paired it with this t-shirt from Zara, Its got a white frill round the sleeves and neckline and pearl and black beads which kind of reminds me of Chanel. The 'it' shoes of the moment, strappy sandals, I got mine for £12 from Primark, finished of with a Moschino belt.

Is anyone else loving Styled To Rock on Sky Living? I've been obbsessed and so sad its the final tonight! Fingers crossed for Heidi, shes my fave!

43. What I Would Pack For A Milan City Break With Easyjet Holidays

What I Would Pack For A Milan City Break With Easyjet Holidays

I was recently contacted to take part in a fab competition to win tickets for a London Fashion Week event with Easy Jet holidays. The Competition includes creating blog posts with what you would pack for some holidays to some very fashionable destinations with Easyjet, and the super cheap flights mean more money to spend on clothes for the trip! If any of you are interested in entering the competion check out their website HERE

So this week it was Milan Vs Palma and I chose Milan, its always been somewhere I've wanted to visit, Its the type of place people throw on jeans and a tee and look so effortlessly cool. Easyjet also provide some information on all othe fablulous things to do HERE, I feel its all about the luxury basics and here are 3 outfits I would love to rock on the streets of Milan, all to be styled with a sleek top knot and a slick of red lipstick.

The first outfit features some faboulous leather trousers and a sharp shouldered blazer which are so chic, then the fun comes with a leopard top, a studded bag, some colour popping boots and some diamond encrusted sunglasses. I think this is a perfect day time look as you really need comfort aswell as style on a city break, the flat boots will allow you to discover the magical streets of milan with out suffering achey feet!

The next outfit I feel would be perfect for an evening meal or a few cocktails around the city. I think the studded waist band on the nude trousers create a really nice deatail to make the trousers that much more luxurious, teaming it with the black lace top and boots make a really drastic statement. I love how sexy the top is without being revealing. A red fringe bag just adds something different to the outfit.

Finally is an outfit I would love to pack for a evening out in Milan. To say I love these shoes would be an understatment, the pointed toe and the mini metal heel makes them so on trend and in person they are so beautiful. I love the black chiffon and beaded skirt, I think that it's really unusual, teaming it with this nude blouse with diamond deatail round the neck and cuffs would make a really striking combo, team with a huge black clutch and your'e good to go.
All the clothes from this feature are avaialbe from Zara and are currently available online.

42. Hello There

Hello Everyone!

After a long break from blogging I am finally back, whilst in the middle of moving house I've found it hard to find the time to get it done and not having access to all my clothes with them all being in storage has made it a nightmare but I'm back and raring to go. I've spent a small fortune latley on topping up my wardrobe for starting college in a few weeks, very exciting! I've always been one of those people that would rather spend £40 on a dress I would wear once rather that a jumper I'd wear 100 times, also since when I was at uni 3 years ago, I've never really had a reason to buy alot of day time clothes, I've always been in a job where I've had a uniform, had to wear all black or quite strict on office attire. So I'm saying good bye to the sparkley dresses and bringing on the wooley jumpers! I will definalty be doing a few posts on my latest purchases soon.

Last night I decided it was time for me to finallly invest in a good camera, especially as photography is part of my college course, after searching for days I found a really good deal on a Canon G11, now apparently this is a good camera and I'm sure it has its bad points but for me who's used to using my iPhone it will be amazing, if any one has this camera or any hints and tips at all into using these very technical devices I would love to hear them as I will be lost when it finally comes!

Just a quick update from me and will be back very soon

41. Pink And Pearls

Today I popped out for some lunch with my Mum, this is what I wore..

Necklace - H&M, Blazer - H&M, Jumper - NewLook, Bag and Shoes - Chanel, Jeans - H&M

I have wanted this necklace for ages but really wanted it to go in the sale as it was £10 and I think thats alot for what it is but yesterday I headed to H&M to return something and was told I could only exchange so it seemed a perfect opportunity to buy it as I wasn't really buying it if you know what I mean! I also got these black jeans while I was there as the have a zip fastning at the side, I have another pair from H&M that zip at the back and love the way they are flat across the front, I always hate the way the button jolts out at the front it can be really unflattering, these how ever are super flattering, really comfy and at only £10 a pair and available in loads of different colours I think I might be buying some more! I love the way this look is smart yet casual and comfy, perfect for days out when you still want to look nice with out making too much of an effort!

Also please remeber to check out my items for sale on eBay HERE, All ending on Saturday.

40. Leopard

This is an outfit I wore for a few drinks at the pub with my Boyfriend..

Top - George at Asda, Necklace - NewLook, Flatforms - River Island

I picked this top up last week from George at Asda, I'm constantly amazed at how good some of their peices are and it adds a bit of excitment having a browse whilst doing the food shop! The top was £8 which I think is so reasonable as its so versetile, It will look great with jeans, skirts, shorts, it is casual enough for day to day wear but the mesh shoulders make it look a bit more than your average tee so it is suitable dressed up for a night out.

I am also seeking some advice that I hope you girls can help me with! It is one of my good friends engagement party in two weeks and today the dress I had ordered for it arrived. I was so pleased with it and went to try it on immediatley and I cannot zip it up! Its not that it's too small as their is plenty of room when I hold the two sides together. Its just the zip gets too a certain point and will not move, it's where the waist band is stitched wich has been a problem on other dresses I have but they have always gone up with a bit of force! I really don't want to have to send the dress back as I love it and haven't seen anything else that compares to it, does anyone know anything that will make the zip move?!!

39. Rain Rain Go Away

Is any one else totally sick of this weather!?I can't belive we have rain every single day and it's July, buying summer clothes is pointless. I can't wait to be on holiday and get some sun.

Top - George, Necklace - Dorathy Perkins, Jeans - Newlook, Bag - Vintage, Boots - Garage

This is something I wore whilst running a few errand's yesterday.
I find it so hard dressing for this weather, I'm much more of a summer girl. I love this vest I picked up in the sale at George in Asda for £5. As its knitwear its perfect for warmer dressing but as its a vest can also be worn in summer, I love the colour and the metallic thread running thru it. I teamed it with some dark wash jeans, big necklace, studded boots and a leather jacket.

This weekend is free listing on eBay so I'm trying to list as much as possible to raise some spending money for my holiday, HERE is the link to my items if you'd like to take a look, I will be uploading more throughout the weekend :)

38. New Shoes

I really need to get back into the swing of posting more regularly, with work and preparing to move house I have been so busy!
I am usually a sucker for the sales but this year I have been really well behaved and only bought two things, I really need to try and save for my holiday in 3 weeks!

So this is what I bought.

Miss Selfridge - Was £58 Now £25

First up are these little beauties, I've had my eye on they for a while and after getting a gift voucher from the lovely girlies at work I went online to buy them at full price and to my luck they were less than half price, made an easy decision alot easier! I love the wooden heel with coloured leather, perfect combo! They will look amazing with denim shorts and a fringed kimono. All though they are the most uncomfortable things I've probably ever put on my feet with instant pain shooting through the ball of my foot with the addition of 'party feet' insoles it makes them, well, actually really comfortable, who knew floppy gel things could make such a differece, thank heavens for them as I dont think I could face sending them back. Love them love them love them.

River Island - Was £55 Now £25

Another pair I'd spotted a while ago and fell in love with, I love the pastel colour and the delicate straps make them so lady like but the mirrored pannel gives them a harsh edge and such a designer/expensive feel. After finding a pair of sandals that my Mum had mentioned she wanted a while ago in the sale and her birthday coming up I couldnt resist buying these aswell to make the most of paying for postage, an excuse I often used for buying too many things online!

Confetti Converse - ASOS

Not a sale purchase but my lovely boyfriend suprised me with these today! After mentioning I'd wanted them a while ago I finally got them. This is my first pair of Converse and I'm happy I'm finally joining the club, love the confetti print, so cute. Comfortable and stylish, god only knows why I havent got any sooner!

37. Primark Jacket

I recently picked up this jacket from Primark for only £26! Jackets are probably my favorite thing, theyr're so easy to make a statement with over a plain outfit. I love the monochrome colour scheme and I feel like it Naomi Clarke (90201) when I wear it. Such a great peice of tailoring for such a great price!

I teamed my jacket with my lime green peplum top, shiny black leggings and plain black heels and a statement spike necklace.

I have just booked my holiday so I am finally allowed to get excited!! Trying not to spend any money on holiday clothes as I have so many that I didnt wear from last year! I just can't wait to spend a week in the sun with my boyfriend, we've found a gorgeous hotel in Tunisia but never been before, have any of you? Any tips of things to do, what its like ectt?

35. Birthday Dress

This week I celebrated my 22nd birthday, can't belive I'm getting so old! Last saturday I went out with the girls to celebrate. I wanted a really nice dress but had a nightmare finding one. I have had my eye on one from Virgo's Lounge for weeks but since Miss Lydia Bright from TOWIE has been pictured in it it has been sold out :(. I ended up hitting the shops in a blind panic a few days before and buying everything as 'back up's' that caught my eye but wasnt happy with any of them. Finally on friday night at around 7pm, Lipsy popped into my mind, I looked on their webesite and ordered two dresses with next day delivery but not hopeful they would come in time, but they did! 10am saturday morning and they were here and I fell in love with this mint green number. The peplum waist is really on trend and I love the sequin bust detail for a bit of glamour. Perfect party frock and it was only £55!

Dress - Lipsy, Shoes - ASOS

34. DIY Shorts

Hi Everyone, sorry for the lack of posts lately, I have been so boring, I have a few things lined up for this week though!

The other night while sorting out the loft I came across a big pile of my Mam's old jeans, She did'nt want them any more so I thought I'd have a go a a bit of DIY with them and turn them into shorts. I really like the Ragged Priest things so took a bit of inspiration from that. Since ordering the star studs of eBay for my denim jacket I have been obsessed with studding everything! Also tie dying everything, I will have nothing left in its original condition soon!

Here's how my two favorite pairs turned out.

I love the effects of both of these pairs, I cant belive how cheap these looks are to achive when they are so expensive to buy! Definatley worth a go!

33. DIY - Body Chain / Necklace

After catching up with the latest gossip on the daily mail website I came across a picture of Jess Wright from TOWIE and it gave me ispiration to make my own body chain, I knew we had loads of pieces of chain laying about in our sewing room so I dug them all out and began. I know these are really expensive in the shops I payed around £20 for a really simple one, I wish I had just made one now, I already had the chain but it is really cheap to buy from a craft store.

What you will need - Chain, as much or as little as you'd like and in any colour - Some Scissors to open up the chain links - Plyers to close the links back up - Some clips, I already had this chain with two clips on, I think it may have originally been a bag handle but you can get clips from craft stores.

I used the thicker chain I had found as my base but if you can't find anything like that measure a piece that fits your neck and attach the clips and start building up the chains in any style you like.

It is really simple to attach the chains to each other. Use the scissors to open the link up, place it around the chain your attaching it too and close with the plyers. It can get quite fiddley but once you get the hang of it it get's easier.

Keep trying it on to see where the chains need adding and there you have it your very own body chain or necklace!

I might move some of the chains around once I see it on with a propper outfit but I'm really please with how it has turned out, I think it will create a real statement to a plain outfit.
Give it a try!

32. DIY - Star Studded

When I get bored I like to try and do something 'productive', this usually involves ruining something!! I had ordered some studs a few weeks ago for a DIY project and totally forgot about them so while I've been bored over this really long bank holiday It was perfect timing to come across them. I got this denim jacket about 3 years ago from Primark and cut the sleeves off last year, I thought I'd jazz it up a little, well alot, with the studs.



I bought the star studs off ebay, I paid around £7.00 for all of them. I got 100 of the large ones and 300 of the smaller ones and still have loads left that I'm going to put on some denim shorts or maybe a T-shirt. They push threw the denim really easily, such a cheap, easy way to update old clothes and make something original which I love!

I'm trying to update alot of old clothes for my holiday this year as I'm on a budget but want to create some new looks so expect some more posts like this soon :)

Necklace - River Island, Vest - Urban Outfitters, Blazer - Topshop,
 Leggings - Graffiti, Shoes - River Island, Bag - Charity Shop

I love my fake disco pants, I just want to wear them all the time! I think I might buy the real version in navy after my birthday, they make everything look that bit cooler. I found this great bag in a charity shop, I've only just recently started looking in charity shops but been so suprised of all the great finds for so cheap! Can't wait to discover more.

Today I'm on a mission to raise holiday funds so putting loads of stuff on eBay! I will put a link to my shop on later tonight when I've finished so you can have a browse. I've also gone tie dye crazy latley so will be showing you all my latest creations!

30. Peplum

Today I had to pop into town to take my phone in as the button isn't working, so annoying! Anyway while I was there I naturally had to pop into Primark, I'd spotted a lime coloured peplum top on someones blog and wanted to grab it as I knew it will sell out soon! After trying on the lime I decided to get the cream aswell, They'll be perfect with printed trousers and denim shorts. I also found some great leggins in one of those shops that sell copys of all the highstreet shoes, theyre just like the AA disco leggins and were only £12! Heres some of the things I bought today and how I plan on wearing them.

Top - Primark, Necklace - Matalan, Leggins - Graffiti, 
Bag - Topshop, Shoes - Christian Louboutin

I love the cream top with the black leggins with statement colourfull accessories, the heart shaped bag adds a fun touch and love the multi colour necklace.


29. What To Expect

Last night I went to go see What To Expect When Your'e Expecting. I have to say I wasn't sure what the film would be like as I'm not into the whole baby thing but it was helarious! With it's all star cast it provided laughs from start to finish, the 'Dude Club' moments I particularly enjoyed! I would say it's a definate must see! This is what I wore..

Kimono - Monsoon, Vest - Custom, Bag - Louis Vuitton, Jeans - H&M, Shoes - ASOS

I wanted to show you all this YSL logo vest I made, It was a simple white vest and I used Dylon fabric paint in Bronze. I printed the logo off the internet, cut it out then drew round it with pencil whilst it was stretched over some cardboard and simply painted it on. I think it looks great and I'm deffiatley going to try it with some more items. The kimono was such a bargin, it was £120 reduced to £25! I love the fringing and the colours, I think it's the perfect cover up for the summer.

Have you seen What To Expect yet? What did you think?

28. Birthday Wishes

In 3 weeks I'm turning the grand old age of 22! eek! Definatley can't pretend I'm a kid after this birthday. As I'm currently laid in bed feeling sorry for my self as I'm very sun burnt (who knew English sun could do so much damage!) I decided to do a little wish list to make me feel better. I dont usually get alot of of presents for my birthday usually money and a few little things to open, It's good in a way as I get to buy what ever takes my fancy but I usually end up dwindelling it all away so it would be nice to have a few suprises! This is what I have been lusting over lately.

1. I love this sequin off the shoulder dress from Virgos Lounge, It's so unusual and has a vintage look to it, the sequins make it the perfect party dress!
2. I have been wanting some Converse forever I've just never gotten round to getting any! I spotted this pair on ASOS the other day and love the cute confetti print, it just makes them that little bit different to the usual high tops.
3. Wedges are perfect for the summer, I love this glitter pair from Topshop, they're the perfect day to night shoe.
4. I've been wanting some Disco Pants forever just never fancied dishing out on the hefty price tag! After alot of deliberation I've decided I'm finally ready to make the splurge so I will definatley be buying them with my birthday money if I dont get them as a present! I love the red so much but think I'd get alot more wear out of the navy.

Tomorrow I'm off to see 'What to expect when your expecting' I cant't wait, it looks so funny, Will let you know what I think of it.

27. A Nod To Neon

Ahh lovely weather yet again! I have spent the afternoon sunbathing trying to catch up with everyones tans! Love laying out in it with radio one playing all the summer classics, feeling like your on holiday. I've caught a tiny tan, hope it stays like this on Wednesday for my next day off to get a full days tanning in.

This afternoon I'm off for a long overdue catch up with a friend and this is what i'm wearing.

 Sunglasses - Prada, Dress - TK Maxx, Belt - Newlook, Watch - Michael Kors, Bag - Paris

How cute is this dress from TK Maxx! I know the shop is a nightmare and you have to be in the right mood to rummage the rails but it really is worth it when you find something like this for only £14.99. I love that its so on trend with the neon print, perfect for summer days and holidays, I also feel like it could be dressed up for a night out. Today I'm wearing it with a silver plaited metal belt and my flatforms and taking my black leather biker jacket along for when it gets a bit chilly. I got this bag from a souvenier shop in paris and I love it, I'm obbsessed with everything to do with the place any way but think this little bag is so cute, it looks slightly vintage, perfect addition to the outfit.

26. Summer Lovin'

Can't belive the sun has stayed out this long. I hate that every one is popping up on my twitter feed saying they have tan lines and I'm still this pastey even with a slick of fake tan, I can't wait for tomorrow when I can lay out and soak the sun up all day and hopefully get a bit of colour in my cheeks!

Last night I went for a few drinks with my boyfriend just at the local pub. This is what I wore.

Denim Shirt and Dress - Topshop, Necklace - Clothes Show,
Flatforms - River Island, Sunglasses - Prada
I love floral prints for the summer and I got this dress from Topshop last year and wore it to death, I love it when you find something you love and can carry it from season to season. Even though my flatforms give me the most painful blisters (beauty is pain right?) I absoutley love them, I'm a huge fan and need more, I think they will be a trend thats here to stay. I added this loose fit denim shirt to take off the chill when the wind picks up. Perfect outfit for a few relaxing summer drinks.
Today I've been at work (still not seen the sun!) and then spent this evening making some gorgeous easy to make maxi skirts, if you have a sewing machine anyone could make them! Will be posting about them soon.
Also I'd like to take the opportunity to thank everyone that has been reading my blog, it means alot as I really didn't think anyone would find what I had to say interesting! Hope to carry on keeping you entertained :)

25. How I Wore Tie Dye Tassels

Hope you have all read my last post on how I created this lovely top. Tonight I went out for my tea with some friends and sat in a beer garden soaking up the sun. I want this weather to stay so badly, I am such a summer dresser I hate thinking of a fab outfit and then covering it all up with a big coat! I am much more suited to cute dresses and sandals. This is what I wore tonight.

Sunglasses - Prada, Top - Custom, Necklace - Topshop, Watch - Michael Korrs,
Shorts - Topshop, Bag - Vintage, Sandals - Primark

I teamed the top with these black silk shorts from Topshop as I really wanted the colours to stand out. I love this top so much, think it will be fab on holiday and even with jeans when it gets cooler. Makes me want to dye every thing in my wardrobe!


24. How To - Tie Dye Tassels

I'm kind of loving the latest tie dye trend so I've had a go myself, I did some denim shorts a few weeks ago which I havent had chance to wear yet but last night I had another go with an old dress. It was an old Topshop favorite that I've had for about 3 or 4 years but thought it would be great made into a colourful top so I could get more wear out of it, Heres how to have a go at this Tie Dye effect your self..

Step one - Select the item you want to dye, something white is best as the dye will take better and the colours will be strongest. This is how my dress started.

Step two - Choose your dyes, you can have one or a million different colours its totally up to you! Be sure to pick colours that will compliment each other and think about the colours they will form if they run into each other. The dyes I used were Dylon Fabric Dye in colours - French Lavender, Bahama Blue, Sunflower Yellow and Flamingo Pink. I paid £9.99 for a choice of 4 dyes off eBay.

Step Three - Mix your dyes, I kind of improvised with this part and didnt stick to the instructions on the packet. I put two small spoonfulls of dye into a bottle with hot water and shook it up. I used a travel sized bottle that I got a pack of 5 from Primark for around £2, these are available everywhere and really handy when wanting to create this effect.

Step Four - Find a suitable area you can dye your item, I used a kitchen work top with binliners underneath, this protects the work surface but also holds the dye for it to be absorbing over night.I tied up the ends of the dress to protect them from the dye.  

Step Five - Start applying the dye, I just squirted the dye along in strips.

Step Six - Build up all of the colours along the tassels and leave over night.

Step Seven - After leaving over night, give the item a good rinse and then machine wash, I then cut the bottom of the dress off to make into a top and voila your tie dye tassels are done!

I am really happy with the finished product! I wanted to leave the top all white and just have the tassels in colour but the blue dye absorbed into the top, I think it actually looks really cool and its an effect I couldnt of created if I had wanted too. I really like that you cant make mistakes with Tie Dye and its a totally individual design that you end up with.

Check out my next post on how I wore my new top.

23. The Start Of Summer

So glad the weathers stayed nice for another day even though it was spent at work! I love the evenings though when the sun is still shining and all you can smell is barbeques, my favorite! I headed for a good old barbie tonight and this is what I wore.
Sunglasses - Primark, Necklace - Clothes Show Live,
Top - George, Belt - Primark, Shorts - River Island, Shoes - Topshop

I love the batwing style of this floral top, I picked it up in George at Asda for £3 in the sale, I also think it'll be great with jeans. Tailored shorts are probably my favorite thing to wear, I got this pair in the end of summer season sale last year for £10 and been waiting to wear them since! I love this outfit, It screams summer with the whites and florals, hope your all enjoying the weather!

20. Hair Depression

Busy day for me today! After talking about it at work today I finally got the motivation to do some exercise today! This is a big step for me as it has been weeks of me saying I will start tomorrow, as we have a treadmill in our garage theres really no excuse. I used to go to the gym around 4 times a week but since working such long hours I am always too tired when I've finished, I'm hoping I can stick to just doing an hour 3 times a week to keep me feeling fit and healthy, chances are i'll be slouched in bed with a pizza tomorrow!

I used to have lovely thick long hair and in a state of crazy I had it all chopped off! I actually really liked it when I first had it done, I've always had long hair so it was a nice change but it was so difficult to manage, because it's so thick it just all poofed out and I endd up looking like a poodle. I got micro ring extensions that were great but drove me mad, they only lasted about a month because they made my head so irritable. So now my hair is always tied up, it has to be up for work so then it usually just stays up, it takes too long to do anything with it and I'm still never happy with the outcome! I wear clip in extensions for nights out but never really bother with them during the day. I'm just desperate for my hair back, I cant wait to have it freshly washed, scrunch a bit of mousse in it and have perfect messy look effortless hair! My friend recommended some Lee Stafford Hair Growth products that I didnt really think would ever work but after ready soooo many positive reveiws it sounds like they really do so I've just ordered them from the boots website.

There is a shampoo and conditioner that retail at £6.99 each and a treatment that was £7.99. I bought all three but I think alot of people just use the treatment and still get results. I'm going to get my roots touched up before using the products so it helps me see a difference. I really hope they work as I'm desperate to have easy to manage hair again!

I will keep you updated with how I get on with them, I really hope they weren't a waste of money! has anyone else used them?

This vintage look dress is so sweet, I love the pale pink with the delicate neck detail. Dresses like these are so versitle as they can be dressed up or dressed out with different accessories, still think the £65 price tag is a little heavy tho!
The MOTO shorts are so cool, So expensive for what they are but give great inspiration. When I was in Paris I found a vintage shop that had Levi shorts for 5Euros! I wish I had brought loads of pairs home to customise as it is so easy to create your own.
The Tapestry Crop top is on trend with the pastel colours, a perfect tee for a easy throw on look with denim shorts, I think it would look great with my peach maxi pleated skirt.
The Jewel strap cami reminds me so much of something Carrie Bradshaw would wear I love it and NEED it!

River Island
Pink Peep Toe Jelly Wedge - £25, Silver Point Perspex Shoe - £50, Orange Studded Mini Skirt - £20, Bright Pink Peep Toe Shoes - £65

Thinking about my holiday when looking at these wedges! They look like the mel ones but at a lower price! They also come in white and yellow, the perfect holiday shoe as not too high and with them being jelly they wont get ruined!
These silver shoes kind of remind me of princess shoes but the perspex sides give them the modern edge, I think they would bring a great high fashion touch to alot of outfits.
This skirt for £20? Hello Vercase! If your not brave enough to try the orange it also comes in black.
Louboutin did a shoe in a similar shape to these peeptoes, they are great for someone who wants to add a nod to the neon trend with out looking too overboard. They also come in the nude with a yellow heel.

17.Gold Cross

So here it is, my first outfit post and I appologise for the terrible quality! Who knew my room was so dark, going to have to find a better spot for furture pics...

This outfit post is mainly to show you this fab top I picked up this afternoon in Asda of all places! Adsa is right next to where I work so I'm often popping in for food ect so usually have a quick look in the George section, why not ey? I have to say I've been really impressed latley! Now I'm not saying its Topshop or anything but theres the odd bit thats pretty impressive for the price. About 2 weeks ago I got some really nice printed leggings for £8, at that price you dont care if a trend goes out faster than it came in.
Anyway back to the top, Its a lovely cream slouchy knit vest with gold foil cross print. Its bang on trend and only £12! I teamed it with my brown jeggings from Primark, Biker Jacket and my favorite black boots with wooden heel from H&M. I was only going to Nandos so just needed a casual look but I think it'll be great in the summer with denim  shorts and boots or light wash jeans and sandals.

 Its also available in black with gold stars, I wanted both but been trying to kurb my spending habits lately, so just got the one. We'll see how long that lasts!!

16. My Style

As part of my blog I always inted to do outfit posts but never gotten round to it, so before I start I thought I'd talk to you all a bit about my personal style.
As odd as it may sound I kind of treat clothes a bit like fancy dress! With the right outfit you can become anyone. My style is very very ecclectic, one day you could see me in a pretty lace tea dress and the next day in ripped jeans and a biker jacket. There are so many great styles and fashion trends out there I dont know why anyone would want to stick to just one.
The key items in my wardrobe are my black leather biker jacket and my black blazer, I feel like any outfit I have on I can transform it to rock chick with the biker jacket and sleek and sophisticated with the blazer.
I think the worst thing is seeing other people in the same clothes as you, I like to be individual so I customise alot of my clothes, be it wilth lace, studs, dying, anything to stand out from the crowd.
I like to mix up vintage and highstreet with designer accessories to create something different, also finding different ways to wear clothes, e.g. a skirt doesnt always have to be worn as a skirt!

I hope you enjoy the outfits I share with you and give you some inspiration!

15. Make-up Update

Before I went to Paris I popped down to Superdrug for some essentials but ended up getting some treats too.

The MUA (Make Up Academy) range at Superdrug is amazing! All of the items are £1 exect some of the larger items which are understandably a little more expensive. What really stood out for me was the eye shaddows, theyre really amazing quality and the pigments are really strong which is not expected with these cheaper brands. They also have a really great range of nail varishes and lip sticks.

MUA - Heven and Earth Pallet £4
I got this pallet cos I think with my skin tone I suit more golds and browns rather than silvers and blacks that are too harsh. I love brown smokey eyes so I think this is perfect to experiment with. The colours are really strong and well lasting. MUA do lots of other pallets aswell as indiviual colours that for this price I'm definatley going to try!

MUA - Shade 28 Pearl £1
This colour really stood out for me I love the shimmer in it and it is really well pigmented, so much that it rivals MAC! The dark burnt orangey bronze looks amazing on and think it will make eyes really stand out.

MUA - Lipstick Shade 3 £1
I always go for the same old barbie pinks when buying lipsticks, if I ever get anything new I never wear it so I thought this range would be perfect for trying new colours as I wouldnt be wasting a fortune if it never got used again. I went for shade 3 which is a lovely pink that is a few shades darker than what I would usually go for. I was really suprised with it, I love the colour, it has a really moisturising feel when on and a glossy look. I will definalty be buying more from MUA!

Barry M - Wink Eye Marker £5
I had heard lots about this and been trying to get my hands on one for ages! So happy they finally had one in stock! I love liquid eye liner but find it takes me ages to get it right so I thought this may help speed up the process and it does! Its so quick and easy for a perfect application, it goes on really well over eye shaddow and it lasts really well. This is deffinatley my new favorite beauty product!
