New Year's Resolutions and Ever Ours.

I've seen many people posting blog posts about their best bits of 2011 but to be honest, this year has been pretty rubbish for me so there wouldn't be much for me to write about.. So I'm going to tell you guys my new year's resolutions for 2012!

So, here are my resolutions:

  1. Lose some weight and get fitter. I want to lose some weight so I can start posting some outfit posts on here for you guys :)
  2. Start up my jewellery business. I really hope it's a success!
  3. Make my blog more popular. I'd love for more people to have the opportunity to read it!
  4. Sleep more! I seriously need to get more sleep! Some school nights I only get about 4 or 5 hours sleep and I'm always grumpy in the mornings..
  5. Buy some more clothes. I really need to develop my wardrobe a bit more as all I own are basically hoodies, jeans and t-shirts..
So, now to something fashion related! Ever Ours was founded in September 2011 by 21 year old Kim Melotte. They sell everything from jumpers, dresses and jewellery to homewares. They're a small up-and-coming business who I think 2012 will be their year to become big!

1.2.
(1. Leopard Print Messenger Bag, £22. 2. Triple Triangle Ring, £5.)


3.4.

Fashion Pony.


Victoria from Fashion Pony sent me a lovely email today asking me to take a look at her online fashion website so I had a look and I loved it so I thought I'd write about it here!

Fashion Pony is a fairly new online fashion boutique which specialises in offering fashion from new and emerging designers and a range of independent labels. They search nationwide and attend fashion shows to find items for their shop. They also sell uni graduates' pieces who they think will be the 'next big thing' in fashion design. Most of their pieces are made in small batches so you don't have the nightmare of attending a party and seeing someone else in the same dress! Despite being individually made and not mass-manufactured, all their independent designer pieces are affordable! So you can get a limited edition, designer piece for the same price as a high end high street piece!

Here are some of my favourite pieces from their website:

1.2.
(1. Jarlo Josephine Maxi Dress, £70. 2. Reverse Belted Peplum Dress, £42.)

3.4.
(3. Reverse Leather Bust Pleated Maxi Dress, £45. 4. Reverse Leopard Print Maxi Skirt, £42.)

5.6.

Eleanor Rose.

I was on my Blackberry and I saw a Facebook notification saying I had a friend request from Eleanor Rose. So I looked at their mutual friends and they had none so I was a bit freaked out and then I saw they had a website and when I got onto my laptop I realised it was actually an account for a clothes' website! So obviously I accepted and they sent me a request to like their page so I liked it. So as they went to the trouble to send me a friend request and ask me to like their Facebook page, I thought it would be rude not to write a blog post about them! Especially as the clothes they sell are really nice!
