My Top Sale Picks

The Boxing Day/New Years sales are probably my favourite part of Christmas! It sounds quite sad but I love a good bargain and shopping that won't hurt the bank balance too much! I've been checking out the sales online and there are some great items out there, all you need to do is look! Too bad the sales racks aren't as organised as my little collages!

Topshop Sale Picks

1   |   2   |   3   |   4   |   5   |   6   |   7

There's a great collection on crosses, studs and sparkle going on in the Topshop sale which I love! Topshop definitely do not disappoint with this great array of bargains!

Miss Selfridge Sale Picks

1   |   2   |   3   |   4   |   5

Miss Selfridge has some great staple pieces in their sale, including some great shorts which will do nicely over tights until the weather gets better!

Missguided Sale Picks

Missguided have some cute party and summer dresses in their sale along with some nice wedges. Start planning ahead for Spring/Summer!

Yayer Sale Picks

I've fallen in love with Yayer recently and their sale is no exception! I love their grungy look and feel but still super trendy! Definitely in love with those wedges and the skirt!

Happy Boxing Day!


T-Shirt - Topshop
Jacket - Miss Selfridge
Skirt - Topshop
Shoes - Topshop

Happy Boxing Day! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas yesterday and aren't too stuffed to hit the shops! Christmas seemed a bit surreal to me this year because it came so quickly and didn't really feel like Christmas in my opinion. Personally, I've been more excited about the sales than Christmas so as you can tell, I had a blast shopping today! 

I went into town with my parents and they bought me some stuff which is always good! The only down side is my dad hates going to all the high street shops so I kinda got rushed through Topshop and didn't get the chance to go to other shops but other than that it was good! 

The LUSH sale was amazing! Half price all the gift sets and selected bath bombs, bubble bars and shower gels! So obviously I went mad spending close to £50! It was definitely worth it though! 

Then it came to the mighty Topshop. It was so hectic and I only got the chance to look through half the sales racks but I managed to pick up 2 lovely jumpers coming to £27 all together with my student discount! Such a bargain!

What did you get in the sales?

Shine bright like a diamond



Top - New Look
Skirt - Topshop
Shoes - Topshop

I bought this top on a whim back in the summer and I've never worn it until now. I just didn't know what to wear with it, and I'm a bit self-conscious of the massive arm holes on it, but I thought I'd piece it together with my Topshop skirt. Obviously, I had to wear my Vectras! 

I'm really sorry for the lack of good outfit posts. You may have heard this time and time again but I literally have no clothes! Plus, with about £4 in my bank account, I can't afford to buy anything! I'm hoping to get money for Christmas so hopefully I can please you guys with some new clothes in the near future!

Bazinga!




T-Shirt - Gift
Disco Pants - Glamorous
Glasses - c/o Firmoo

Anyone who knows me well will know that I'm obsessed with The Big Bang Theory, and anyone who's read my bio on the right of the screen will know that I'm from Kent but I recently moved to Northern Ireland. Me and my best friend back in England are both obsessed with Sheldon and co so we always get each other Big Bang Theory gifts. As I hardly get to see her, we exchanged our Christmas gifts last month! So I got her the series 5 DVD and she got me this Bazinga t-shirt! Funnily enough, I'm watching Big Bang Theory as I'm writing this! Oh how I love Sheldon!

Also, I was contacted by the lovely people at Firmoo offering to send me a pair of their lovely glasses and even though I don't wear or need glasses, I thought I'd see what the glasses were like! I got this lovely Ray-Ban like style with clear lenses. They came in just under 2 weeks which is pretty good considering they came all the way from China, and they came in a lovely case with a cleaning cloth and travel pouch!

If you haven't heard of Firmoo, you should definitely try them out! Also, you can get your first pair free with their First Pair Free program! And with the festive season approaching, think about getting some glasses for friends and family too!

I Knew You Were Trouble




Top - Topshop
Necklace - River Island
Disco Pants - Glamorous
Shoes - Topshop

I must be boring you with wearing the same clothes over and over but the truth is I own like next to no clothes so I have to make do with the few I have! I'm pretty attached to my disco pants so I thought I'd feature them again with my beloved peplum top and the best shoes in the world (aka my Topshop Vectras).

DISCO PANTS



Blouse - Forever 21
Disco Pants - Glamorous @ Republic
Necklace - River Island
Shoes - Topshop

I FINALLY GOT MYSELF SOME DISCO PANTS! I've really wanted some American Apparel disco pants but £74 is WAY too much for shiny leggings so I thought the Glamorous pair would be a good dupe to buy. I was hoping to get some if I won the Glamorous Blogger Challenge but sadly I came fourth.. So I took matters into my own hands and went to Republic after school today and bought some! To be honest, they weren't as tight fitting as I thought they'd be but I still like them, and they're so versatile! Great buy I think!

Christmas Day Outfit - Barratts Shoes Competition

I was contacted by Barratts Shoes to enter their Christmas competition to win £70 to spend in their store and I couldn't turn down the chance of new shoes so here it goes!
 
Christmas Day Outfit - Barratts Shoes Competition

Dress - Topshop
Earrings - Topshop
Tights - Topshop
Shoes - Barratts

To enter, you had to create an outfit for one of the range of Christmas situations (a walk in winter wonderland, a Christmas party, a long shopping day or a Christmas Day outfit) so I chose a Christmas Day outfit. I've been in love with this black and gold velvet dress from Topshop for ages so I thought I'd base my outfit around it. I love the Topshop Millicent boots so I was so glad when I found a cheaper version on the Barratts website! Lastly I found these earrings and tights on the Topshop website as well which rounds off the look nicely.

If you would like to enter this great competition, create a Christmassy outfit which fits one of the situations I mentioned above and feature it on your blog. Then, comment on Kel's blog with the link to your post by the 10th December! Kel and a representative from Barratts Shoes will pick four finalists and those four will be displayed on her blog for public voting.

Or, if you don't have a blog or just want an easy way to win £30 to spend at Barratts Shoes, just enter the Rafflecopter competition on Kel's blog! Simple!

I discovered Cinderela B a few days ago and I'm so glad I did! Cinderela B is a luxury designer jewellery label founded in 2006 by designer Rachel Jackson. It all started on a stall in Spitalfields Market and before long was snapped up by stockists in Europe, New York and Tokyo! Cinderella B has quickly became one of the most sought after designers in the UK and was recently selected by Goldsmiths to feature in their Best of British campaign!


Dress - Missguided
Bracelet - Cinderela B
Clutch - Topshop

If you want to enter all you have to do is make a collage like mine with your ultimate Christmas party outfit including your favourite Cinderela B pieces!

You can't beat a good jumper!




Jumper - TK Maxx
Biker Jacket - Miss Selfridge
Jeans - Levi's @ Kohl's (America)
Shoes - Topshop
Necklace - River Island
Bracelet - c/o BebbieBobs

As it says in the title, you really can't beat a good jumper! Knitwear is perfect for winter and especially in this beautiful burgundy shade! I wore this outfit to youth club last night (youth club sounds so childish haha!) and I liked it so I thought I'd photograph it today! My friend Simon gave me his old tripod so I can finally take outfit photos without having to balance my camera on random things! I found this jumper while sifting through the rails in TK Maxx and it was such a bargain at only £12.99! And then of course I'm wearing my staples of a biker jacket, jeans and my Topshop vectras!

Glamorous Blogger Challenge Finalist!

I'M A FINALIST!


You may remember that I posted a couple of days ago about my dream outfit for under £200 from Glamorous (view the post here). Well I was picked as one of the finalists! This is a bit of a desperate plea but I'd love it if you'd like the photo on Glamorous' Facebook page here so I can be in with the chance of winning £200 of Glamorous vouchers! It's going to be tough competition because there are some great outfit ideas on there but I'm thinking positive!

Burgundy Vans




Jumper - Forever 21
Biker Jacket - Miss Selfridge
Necklace - River Island
Jeans - Levi's @ Kohl's (America)
Shoes - Vans @ Schuh

I'm wearing my signature outfit, I wear this all the time! I guess it's kind of a go-to outfit because I never know what to wear and this is good to throw on! It's not that fashionable but I kinda like it! I should really try and be more adventurous! I'm wearing my new biker jacket which I'm in love with! I'm a bit disappointed that it doesn't keep me warm at all which gives me an excuse to buy this parka jacket! Plus I'm super happy because my dad bought me these burgundy vans on Thursday! It was weird because I'm a size 6 and the size 5 fit me better? Has anyone else realised that? But anyway I love them and they're so comfy! I'm thinking about getting some Topshop frilly socks to go with them!

Disco Pant Fever

Disco pants have most certainly taken over the blogosphere and is now leaking into the high street! Of course the originals are the £70 American Apparel pairs, but now everyone is at it producing more purse friendly versions but half the price!

Here's some of my favourite dupes, along with the originals:

1. I really need some disco pants and as I don't really want to splash £70 on an American Apparel pair, I'll happily settle for a Glamorous pair

2. I saw this Zara lookalike shirt on Grace's blog and I'm in love! It's so cheap at £9.69! Gotta love eBay!

3. I was looking through the H&M website and I saw this.. I shall say no more

4. I really want a tartan scarf and this fits the bill perfectly!

Geek Chic


T-Shirt : Topshop
Necklace : River Island
Jeans : Levi's @ Kohl's

I went into town today with my friends Jess and Katie and I bought this biker jacket and this necklace. I've been saving up for this biker jacket for ages after I saw it on Instagram. Can't believe I finally bought it! I came across this necklace in River Island and for only £6, I had to get it! Also... my mum bought me the Geek T-Shirt from Topshop! It's so comfy and it was one of the last 6 left in stock!

Country Gal



Shirt : Hollister
Skirt : Topshop

I randomly put this outfit together the other day.. I didn't actually go out wearing it because I would most definitely freeze to death in this crazy weather!

 1. I got my favourite frappuccino on Tuesday, venti caramel light frappuccino with whipped cream and extra caramel syrup!

2. I went into town today after getting my retainer and bought some dairy milk chocolate with oreos! And I also treated myself to a new foundation because it was on special offer in Superdrug!

3. My mum bought me the Geek t-shirt from Topshop! IN LOVE!

4. I had my first attempt at nail wraps last night.. I definitely need more practice!

Add a Dash of Pink



Top : c/o Oasap
Cardigan : Primark
Skirt : Topshop

I found this lovely pink scalloped vest top in the post when I came back from my weekend trip to Dublin! The colour of it is much brighter in person and is so light (perfect for going on holiday). The customer service at Oasap is brilliant and the delivery is so quick considering that it came all the way from Singapore! I styled the top in my own boring way with this old Primark cardi I've had for ages and my beloved Topshop skirt! 

So I just got back from Dublin and it was lovely! I loved looking at how different it is to London (it feels a bit like a city in France or Belgium)! We walked for miles, and my trusty Topshop Vectras didn't let me down! My feet are blister free hallelujah! But sadly I didn't come across Abercrombie which is pretty depressing, but hopefully I'll go back soon and I'll see it!

Weekly Wishlist #2

Weekly Wishlist #2

1  |  2  |  3  |  4  |  5

1. The glitter in this nail varnish is so nice and I've wanted it for ages! I was in Topshop and I was going to paint it on my nail to see what it was like and some worker guy shouted at me for nearly opening it.. awkward!

2. This might just be a simple top but I really like the dip dye effect of it and it'd look so nice with jeans and vans!

3. I NEED SOME ACID WASH JEANS! I've been admiring them from afar for weeks, anyone fancy buying them for me?

4. Even though it's not exactly shorts weather, I'm really attracted by these shorts. They'd probably look terrible on me but I really want them!

5. It's the JW Anderson jumper everyone is talking about! I really like it but can't see myself paying nearly £70 for a jumper (mainly because I don't have £70)

By the way, you can get 20% off at Motel Rocks by entering thatsmystyle at the checkout!

Snakes with Sequins




Blouse : T K Maxx
Jeans : Republic

I was scouring the clothes racks of T K Maxx for a good half hour until I came across this gorgeous blouse! I love the sequin pocket and collar, and I thought I'd pair them with the snakeprint jeans I got in the Republic sale last year. Overall this outfit was only about £30, I'm such a cheapskate haha!

Yayer

I came across Yayer when I saw Amy's blogpost on her blog Fashion Junkie, go take a look it's amazing! Yayer began in 2009 selling short runs of hand tailored vintage pieces to small boutiques, now they have a hugely successful online store selling cutting edge fashion, both modern and vintage! Their clothes are amazing and definitely my style, I would have everything from their website if I could!

Tie Dye Queen



T-Shirt : DIY
Shorts : Topshop 
Backpack : Accessorize

Last week at youth club, we were tie-dying! This was my first time tie-dying since I was at Brownies aged 7 but I think it's a pretty good second attempt! I was sorting through my junk and I found an unopened tie-dye kit from years ago (can't believe I was so trendy when I was 7!) so I might give it another go so watch this space!
These are my favourite shorts from Topshop that I bought at my birthday party when me and a couple of friends got the train up to Westfield Stratford and went shopping and got Nando's! It was such a good day, I should really do the same next year!
Also, this is actually my school bag! I got it while I was waiting for the plane to Belfast in Gatwick departure lounge and I stumbled upon it's amazingness in the little Accessorize there and no way could I say no, especially as it was tax-free!

Casual Aztec



Top : Forever 21
Shorts : Pull & Bear
Tights : Pretty Polly

This is the outfit I wore last night to youth club with Katie, Jess and Perrie. I got this aztec top last year on holiday in Florida and I love it! It always brings back those good memories seeing my family in America, and makes me depressed that I'm still in the UK in the freezing cold. I'm also wearing my favourite shorts from Pull & Bear. I really like them but they're WAY too short! I wish I realised this when I bought them.. But they're so nice anyway so I just keep pulling them down!
