A Tiny Topshop Treat

When it comes to competitions, I always have to enter. I get 101 emails a week from places with promotions and sales that I swiftly delete without opening. But it’s when the email boasts a competition or has a giant *WIN* in the subject line that my interest is captured. So it’s with this in mind that I hopped down to Topshop to try my luck at a competition and a super super cool one at that. Yes I am skint, yes I should be studying, yes I probably won’t win, but I went along anyway. I was in desperate need of some new items to add to my make-up bag so I thought I’d try Topshop’s range out for once. I’m one of those people who likes to shop around, I’ll give most things a try. So far the only make up item that I’ve bought more than twice has been Maybelline The Falsies mascara and the Benefit ‘They’re Real’ mascara, all my other make-up items are pretty much one-off’s. So this time I …

London: New Year Treats

So whilst in London over the New Years period, I did a bad thing. I was already skint beyond belief, but somehow (and I honestly don’t know how,) I managed to buy a few treats for myself, while being cultural and also visiting museums. The sales were crazy, and had I been raking in a bit more money, I would have gone full-out crazy.My friend also introduced me to a store that I’d never gone to before, Brandy Melville, which I absolutely love. A few of the things there are “one size fits all,” which I don’t completely understand. But either way, there were a few really cool pieces there. So, here’s a few of the things I bought:   Cozy socks from GAP:  I wasn’t going into GAP to buy anything, and was just going in because my friend wanted to buy some jeans, however as soon as I saw these, I knew I had to have them, or I could give them as a present (seriously, you can buy me socks (as long …

Winter Favourites

Haven’t done a favourites post in a very long time, but recently there have been a few items that I’m really enjoying and I thought I’d share them. First up: Christmas themed bedding: I bought this double-sided bedding set from Primark about two months ago. There is a very Christmasy side and then a navy blue, slightly less Christmas-y side which I’ve been showing until now when it’s acceptable to be Christmas-y. It’s warm, cute and was very cheap! Turtle-neck tops/jumpers: With the colder months here I’ve been investing in some long sleeved, warmer tops. I’ve really been loving turtle-necks at the moment, reminds me of my childhood when I used to rock the skivvys and overalls. I originally bought a black and white stripped top from Urban Outfitters and loved it so much that I got the same in black (yes, I have become one of those people). I also bought a grey and black turtle-neck jumper from Topshop (pictured above) and another grey top from Next. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 camera: With everything being …

Girl Crushes x Bloggers | May 2014

I wrote this post sometime last year on my old blog and thought I’d post it here because I still love these two so much! For a while, a couple of super super super fashionable chicks (presumably sisters,) kept popping up everywhere on my Tumblr dash. At first I thought it was just a one-off street style snap, but as the photographs began stacking up on my queues, I realised these chicks were so fashionable it was unreal I was super jealous I needed to know who they were and I was super SUPER jealous. So, I did a bit of digging and found out they were Stef and Jess Dawson, fashion bloggers from Australia and, you guessed it– unbelievably stylish. Yes, I am new to this whole blogging thing, so I’m not in-the-know about all the popular bloggers, so no eye-rollin’ please. But pretty much this is a post expressing my girl crush on these gorgeous Aussie sisters and my envy at their outfits.   So go ahead, check them out at How Two Live if you …
