New Blog

Hi everyone,

Lately I have felt inspired to start up a new blog, which will run alongside this one, where I will talk about issues that affect me and just my general thoughts and feelings. Whilst I love fashion, I have felt the need to blog about other things that interest me and so I'm going to give that a go.

If you are interested at all, I'd love you to go and check it out. It will house absolutely everything unrelated to fashion, so a pretty broad spectrum! You can check out my new blog here! At the moment there's a post on my thoughts on whether girls should have to shave their body hair and another which is my musings on Fifty Shades of Grey.

Thanks and hope you've had great Mondays.

Sale Top Picks - Asos

Hi everyone,

Long time no posting... I know! Had some internet issues and just been pretty busy but back to fashion! Now is one of my favourite times of year when, at what is hopefully the start of some British sun, the spring/summer clothes we've all been lusting after for months get drastically cheaper in the sales. They are absolutely everywhere so I'm going to show my top picks from a range of different stores. Today is the turn of fashion favourite, who day in, day out boast an outstanding range of high-street and high-end fashion which is constantly changing and updated. Their sales have to be one of my favourites each season so I have my 3 favourite things that you can pick up at bargain prices!

Obsession of the Day + Thank you!

Hi everyone,
I'm here today not only to show you what I'm loving but also to say thank you as I have just reached 50 followers on my blog. I'm so grateful that you are all following and commenting on my posts and I promise to be more frequent and consistent in posting. I'm also hoping to get hold of a new (and working) camera to document what I wear on a day to day basis and other such things. I'm going to wait and hold a giveaway when I get to 100 followers, largely because I am currently jobless and ridiculously poor so it's probably for the best. But seriously, thank you to all of you who follow, comment, or just simply visit my blog... it means so much.

Now, on to clothes....

Dermilla Round Hem Tailored Blazer

My pick for today is this gorgeous mint green blazer from Miss Guided. I think it is absolutely perfect. Obviously mint is everywhere this season but I love this muted tone which I think could go with so many different colours. I also love the shape of this blazer with the loose almost kimono-style sleeves and the casual tailoring. This stunning blazer looks so much more expensive than £25.99! If you want to pick up this bargain you can pick it up here!

Thanks again to all of you! Hope you have lovely Sundays and I will see you soon!

Obsession of the Day - River Island Shirt

Hi everyone,
So sorry I've been gone for a while... had a fairly hectic week in which I became an auntie again for the second time to my gorgeous new nephew! Anyway I'm back trawling the high street for summer buys and have another great one for you all today...

So to cut a long story short I am absolutely in love with River Island at the moment. I am also fond of anything embellished and, as always am partial to a shirt. So this pick ticks all the boxes for me. I think it is absolutely stunning and can imagine it dressed down with denim (shorts or jeans) and up with navy city shorts and some equally gorgeous embellished sandals for the perfect fresh but timeless summer look. This beautiful shirt is £40 but I think it would see you through for numerous seasons to come. You can pick yours up here!

Hope you're all doing well and if you are also finished uni I hope you're enjoying your holidays!

Obsession of the Day - Zara Dress

Hi everyone,

So whilst enjoying my new found freedom from uni I found myself on a little (or perhaps quite large) shopping trip yesterday. I walked into Zara and pretty much loved everything there. In particular this beauty caught my eye and I keep thinking about how much I wish I'd bought it...

Believe it or not this is a gorgeous dress. I love the combination of the sheer, casual, loose shirt top with the glitzy, fitted embellished skirt. I think this is the most unusual but beautiful dress which could actually be pretty versatile - I think this could be suitable for day and night. I'm in love and I really want to get it. If you love this as much as I do you can get yours here for a bargainous £29.99!

Hope you're having a lovely week and making the most of the gorgeous sunshine!

Obsession of The Day: Asos Shirts

Hi everyone,

I'm so sorry that it's been so long since I last posted but the good news is that all my exams are over now and for me at least summer is officially here!! This means you can expect far more frequent updates from me on here as I will have a lot more time on my hands!! I am planning to post a 'Favourites' post in the next few days as there are loads of products I'm loving at the moment... just need to charge my camera but hopefully that will be along soon!

In the meantime thought I would talk about a general love of mine. Ever since I posted about the Asos Elephant print shirt a few months ago I have been addicted to Asos's gorgeous printed shirts. This is an addiction which Asos keeps feeding adding a new cute print every couple of weeks! So today I will show you my favourite prints which these shirts come in... all of which I very much want and need!!

Have a great few days,
