Skater life

Top - Topshop
Skirt & Belt - Primark
Shoes - Topshop

I'm super super impressed by Primark this season! I went in there the other day not expecting much but there are loads of gorgeous pieces you'd expect to see in New Look or H&M in there for half the price! Take this skirt and belt, it's so lovely and good quality and only £8! I was so pleasantly surprised! I also have my eye on some of their pencil skirts for only £8 each as well!

What do you think of my outfit?

Mint Candy Apple

Blouse - H&M
Jeans - Topshop
Shoes - Office

I was in town after school looking for warm clothes to wear to New York (I'M GOING TO BE IN NEW YORK IN 2 WEEKS AHH!) when I stumbled across this gorgeous mint blouse in H&M. At only £14.99 I couldn't resist and bought it straight away! It's probably the first summery item I've bought in ages!

Also, I got these lovely pumps in the Office sale for only a tenner! Last pair in my size as well!

I was flicking through the pages of Company magazine when I came across a feature about the Ashish S/S13 collection. I automatically fell in love! The whole collection is all about a nerdy girl being glammed up. I love the fun and carefree nature of the collection, and it's perfect for summer! There are some great pieces, I love how Ashish Gupta has mixed grey marl sweats with glitter and sequins and it works perfectly. Also loving the Reebok Classics the models are wearing, kind of fits in with my lust for some Nike Air Max! He's captured the spirit of summer perfectly and I'll definitely be trying to recreate his collection on the high street come the summer months.

2013 golden globes

The new year brings the awards season, which means the great opportunity to lust over beautiful celebrities and their designer dresses. I just love watching the E! coverage of all the awards shows but sadly as they're normally on a Sunday night, then I end up missing it! :( But I've been catching up on the Golden Globes red carpet in my ICT lesson today haha (I'd finished my controlled assessment early so I was flicking back and forth from the TMZ website and Taco Mia!). 

So here's my favourite Golden Globes red carpet looks!

Amy Adams looked stunning in her pale Marchesa gown. It's so flattering on her, and reminds me of the dress I love so much that I saw on Miley Cyrus at the 2010 Oscars by Jenny Packham! This could have looked better on someone a bit more tanned, but I still love it nonetheless! 

Hayden Panettiere also wore a nude colour fishtail dress by Roberto Cavalli. I love this dress as well but I can't help and compare it to Amy's dress which I think is so much nicer. Sorry Hayden!

Emily Blunt looks amazing in her summery Michael Kors dress. It suits her figure and makes her look glowing. Love love love!

Jessica Alba could wear a bin bag and manage to still look stunning. How is it possible to be so beautiful?! She also rocks a summery peach Oscar de la Renta gown with beautiful Harry Winston jewellery and a Roger Vivier clutch.

Isla Fisher looks glamorous in Reem Acra. The dress is covered in stunning jewels which looks lovely!

Last but not least, Jennifer Laurence looks amazing in Christian Dior Haute Couture. The belt works perfectly to accentuate her curves!

Who's your favourite?

you fit me better than my favourite sweater

Jumper - Topshop (Sale)
Jeans - Topshop
Shoes - Topshop

I thought this Lana Del Rey quote was pretty appropriate with this lovely jumper I picked up in the Topshop sale (sadly it's not on the website!). It was £20 reduced from £45 which I thought was good deal, and I've worn it twice already since last week so it's starting to pay for itself! I'm wearing my staple jeans, shoes and jacket ensemble oops!

Recently, I've been getting the online shopping bug. I normally don't bother to shop online because I like the thrill of trying stuff on and carrying bags around town, the general shopping experience if you must. But I've been going online and tapping in your card details is just so therapeutic. Plus, when it arrives, it's like getting a present even though you know what it is! Recently, I've bought some new Topshop vectras, some Models Own nail varnish (one that I got for free using my Motel Rocks store credit, and one which was half price in the ASOS sale!), some Cath Kidston emery boards from the ASOS sale and a lovely velvet dress from Missguided (featured in a post here). 

Have you been buying anything recently?

Like velvet, can't help it

Dress - Missguided
Necklace - River Island
Shoes - Topshop

I've been wanting this gorgeous velvet dress from Missguided for ages and finally ordered it yesterday! I only paid for saver delivery and it said it would arrive on the 8th, but I was wonderfully surprised when I woke up to a text saying it would be delivered today! Then, the lovely delivery man arrived at 1pm and the dress was mine! Result! I'm super pleased with the dress and will definitely order from Missguided again!

I paired this dress with my biker jacket and my vectras which I basically wear everyday! I should really be more adventurous... But I'm over-the-moon with the dress. It's so lovely and soft!

Happy 2013!

Jumper - Topshop (Sale)
Jeans - Topshop
Necklace - River Island
Vans - Schuh

Happy 2013 everyone! I hope this year is going to be great for everyone!

I got this jumper for only £10 in the Topshop sale (unfortunately I can't find it on the website). It's slightly cropped and I like that it has a grungey vibe about it. You could definitely wear it in a load of different ways so it was definitely a bargain! 

I've been meaning to buy some Topshop jeans for ages but I was kinda put off by the price. However, my trusty Levi's were starting to wear out so I decided to take the jump and get these Leigh jeans. They're so comfy and super soft! Also, I bought them with the gift card my step nan gave me for Christmas! Bonus!
