Victoria Baths.


Jacket: Dorothy Perkins. Top: New Look. Jeans: Asos Curve. Shoes: Evans. Glasses: Asos ( I had my prescription put in!)


Bag: Charity Shop.


Jacket: Dorothy Perkins. Top: New Look. Jeans: Asos Curve. Shoes: Evans. Glasses: Asos.


These are just a few snaps I took when I attended the Vintage Homeshow at Victoria Baths a few weeks ago, due to the weather that day it ended up being freezing in the building and I probably should have worn a jumper. We did however still manage to stop for ice cream on the drive home! I was quite restrained this time round and myself only bought a picture framed and a tin wall hanging for my bedroom, my dad actually came away with more bits and bobs! You may have noticed that Victoria Baths is one of my favourite places to go (I've done a fair few blog posts including it over the years) I just think it's the perfect backdrop for photographs and I hope to do some shoots there in the future!

So onto my clothes, I'M ACTUALLY WEARING JEANS!!! After what seems like an eternity saying I'd probably never find jeans I liked on me, I've been proven wrong. They're not perfect as they cut in a little but with some more wear they should be fine. These are the Asos Curve ankle grazers but due to my lack of height they're actually the perfect length on me, only downside being I have epic muffin top with them which I've disguised with this pretty little top, which after a long time of hunting down on eBay etc the lovely Claire from French for Cupcake offered to sell me hers which she'd hardly worn! You can't see on these awkward photos (my mum took them and I was worrying people would walk in and wonder what she was doing) but it has the loveliest scalloped collar.

I'm off to a vintage fair I've never been to next weekend and I have to admit I am really rather excited!

F&F Bloggers Night In! - "Nobody likes a Mr Sniffles"








Slippers/Pjs/ Array of treats all c/o F&F and Tesco.

This lovely parcel was sent to me way back in January to help beat the blues but due to friends being busy and my life being a little mad we have only just had chance to sit down together and have a little girls night in at my friends uni home. 

We had a wail of as time, laughed until we were hysterical and ate chocolate like it was going out of fashion, obviously the perfect evening! We rebelled and saved the films I was sent for this coming weekend and decided to watch How To Loose A Guy In 10 Days (primarily because it's my dear friend Elly's fave film!) though we didn't watch it in too much detail as we were too busy having too much fun! Though we managed to pay attention just in time for the best line when she insists on blowing his nose for him! As I received only 2 pairs of pjs myself and Becca, the girl in the snap above wore them though I hadn't had chance to transfer the photos across yet! they were comfortable and a dream to sleep in! It's actually very rare for me to wear matching sets to bed, I'm normally in a One Direction t-shirt and moomin bottoms (something that probably wouldn't see the light of day on here!) 

As you can see the biggest hit was the chocolates which thankfully had clear labels so I knew which were gluten free and weren't, meaning I could actually eat some! These didn't last long because they were delicious! A huge thank you to F&F for popping all these treats across for me to share with my best friends, with two of us at uni and working and another working full time we don't always get a lot time for a good catch up and giggle so this was utterly wonderful!

Anna Scholz for Simply Be Event!

 Me and Lauren Pocket Rocket in the most amazing bomber jackets (now on my wish list!)


  Keeping it classy as always, as you can see!

Back in Mid February on the single day it didn't rain while I was in London for a few days I attended the fabulous event at Anna Scholz HQ to see the latest pieces, play dress up and of course hang around with some of my favourite girls! I'm sure you've read about it this on lots of blogs by now but I'm being fashionably late(?) to the party with only just getting chance to write it up now. As always the Simply Be team were an utterly pleasure to be around as was Anna Scholz herself and the rest of her team. Particularly her pup Frida who I'm just a little bit smitten with!

The clothes are to die for and I surprisingly fell in love with a amxi dress something I'd probably never normally go near but the colour, pattern and trimmings are what pulled at my heart strings and it's certainly something I'm going to have to try on as soon as I can. I've also began a love affair with the bomber jacket of dreams, which is purely an Anna Scholz piece I believe and not one in conjunction with Simply Be? It felt amazing on, fitted perfectly (I tried a sample 18 not thinking I'd get it zipped up but it was utterly divine) and the embroidery OH THE EMBROIDERY! At this point I'm sure it's pretty clear that I'm a fashion design student as it was so colour and perfect and just needs to be mine really!

And lastly it's the lingerie that did it for me! If they'd had my size on the rail I may have had to have slipped into something more comfortably and given it a whirl, the vibrant and decadent colours are just stunning in person and the fabrics feel lovely to the touch and as I'm sure you'll know some underwear is wonderful to look at until you see what type of fabric it is.You can take a look at all the fabulous lingerie, Anna Scholz for Simply Be has to offer by clicked on this link.

Massive thank you to Simply Be and Anna Scholz for doing this event and to all the blogger ladies I hung out with while I was there and to the girls who got me on the correct transport back to my Hotel!

Dreams Romance and Excess.




Playsuit: c/o Simply Be. Necklace Topshop. Lipstick: Brighton Rock by Topshop. Tights: Boots.

I've had this utterly amazing playsuit from Simply Be for quite some time now. I was originally sent this to wear to get my photograph taken for an article (Something I'm hoping will go ahead and I will be able to tell you about) but unfortunately dates got moved and this didn't arrive in time. However it's so amazing that I just had to show you all! I snapped these with my new camera which I am still getting the hang of so place bare with me if anything is a little out of focus or off centre.

Now this playsuit is to die for and it's true to size, I'm wearing a UK size 20 here. Due to my lack of height the waists on more fitted playsuits can often just be way off but this is almost perfect which is fabulous for me standing at 5'2. I adore the lace over lay on the long sleeve and just the over all love the romance of the flowers and tones throughout. There is one thing slightly less romantic about this though, it's almost impossible to get on by yourself, in fact in these pictures I don't have it zipped all the way but when I have it is a lovely fit. I have to stick a safety pin at the neck for these. I was home alone when I shot them so had no one to help me! I kept accessorising to a minimum with my beloved heart necklace from Topshop which is a current favourite and being worn in rotation with a few other pieces. I also thought I'd shake up my usual red lip for some colour popping pink hue and I have to say I really like it, just need to feel brave enough to wear it out!

It was insanely windy when I shot these so I couldn't not include a picture where my hairs blowing everywhere, and this was the nicest out of a selection similar! What I think is really important in photographs to me is that I'm having fun, though of course when I've got my Chronic Bitchface on you just never know! And yes I'm still all over The View lyrics after seeing them again a few weeks back with one of my favourite girls Elly, who's currently stuck at home ill, so if you're reading this I hope you feel better and I'll make you some broth(?!)
