If you close your eyes...

Hey guys,

I realise it has been ages since I last posted! I blame the amount of uni work I have had over the last couple of months I feel as if I haven't had time for anything else in my life. I have just handed in two of my units and have one more to go yay! So thought I would make a bit of time for my tiny corner of the internet :)

So I haven't had much time/money really for shopping recently however I have picked up a couple of bits here and there... This is one that I picked up in the Topshop sale last week and I have fallen in love with it!

It was £15 in the Topshop sale! Absolute bargain! Here I have layered it over a body con top and leggings but when summer is in full swing I think it will look great on its own :)

Also for some reason my hair is looking uber red in these photos which I'm not complaining about :)

I have recently finished a photography project at uni and would love to share the photos with you on here so keep your eyes peeled :)

Hope you have been enjoying the beautiful weather :)

These bruises make for better conversation...

Hey Guys,
I wanted to share an outfit with you that I wore out on Thursday night with my housemates :) 

Us students have been working like crazy this week with deadlines coming up and figured we needed a night out just to forget about uni work for the evening. So as a house we headed out for a meal at The Cowherds in Southampton and seriously nothing makes you forget about uni work more than a chocolate brownie with ice cream mmmmmm :)

It was quite a casual affair so we didn't get too dressed up but at the same time wanted to make the most of being able to leave the confinement of our bedrooms and put on something that wasn't trackies and a hoody!

So I went for the classic skirt and top with a pair of heeled boots :)

I bought this top recently from New Look and I am so glad I did! It is a three quarter length body con top which comes down long enough that I don't need a body con skirt with my flimsy - likely to blow up in the wind - skirts :) Also I love the longer sleeves as it stops me from throwing on a cardigan over the top of EVERYTHING :)

This skirt I bought from ASOS marketplace from KMQvintage and I absolutely love it! It is the perfect length on me and I can't wait till the weather warms up and I can frolic around in it in the sunshine :)

The heeled boots are New Look which I purchased on eBay and have been create for going out for a meal or a couple of drinks where I want to look nice but my usual heels would be too much :)

Happy Mothers Day to all of the amazing mums that we just couldn't live without, I don't know where I'd be without mine. Unfortunately Sunday for me means work so I won't be able to spend the day with her but I've made sure she got a card and some flowers to show my appreciation :)

How will you be spending Mothers Day? Any nice plans with your mums? :)

Strawberries Taste How Lips Do...

Hey Guys,
Wanted to share a few more items that I have bought recently during my spending spree in H&M and some basics I purchased recently from New Look :)

Here I am wearing a burgundy cardigan which I bought in the H&M sale for £7 I think it is going to replace my standard black one as I just love this colour!
I am also wearing a basic white T-shirt which I bought in the Tall section in New Look it came in a pack of 3 with a grey one and a black one for £12.99 and they are great for tucking into skater skirts for a casual look for when I'm just going into uni :)

I am also wearing a black skater skirt I got from New Look for £9.99 before student discount! I've wanted one for a while but hadn't found quite the right shape or length for me but this one is perfect! 

The only issue was when taking these photos I may have flashed my photographer Hannah about a million times as every time a gust of wind came the skirt blew up around my ears! Luckily I always wear body con skirts under skirts like this! 

I am also wearing my New Look boots which I actually purchased brand new on eBay for £10!

Its hard to tell from this windy photo but here I am wearing this cute headband I found in H&M for £1! It is a plain black band with feathers attached to a chain so that they fall with your hair :)

I now have so many basic items its unreal, but I always think you can never have too many as they go with literally everything :)

Do you have a lot of basic items in your wardrobe?

And As He Turns Down The Lights, I'm Feeling Paralyzed...

Hey Guys :)
So yesterday was the first day of Uni Days offering 20% discount at H&M which me and my housemates were extremely excited about (possibly more than any normal human being would be) So as soon as I finished uni we headed straight there to buy anything and everything we could get our hands on while we could get 20% off :)

Surprisingly I didn't come away with that many items but I did buy a BEAUTIFUL dress which I am about to share with you :)

It is a gorgeous burgundy colour, although it looks more pink in these photos for some reason... The dress is actually sleeveless but I am wearing it with a body three quarter sleeve top as it was so chilly outside! It also has this really nice collar detail which I wouldn't normally go for because I find they sit quite high up on me which I don't usually like, but I think it works well here :)

I am also wearing my favourite accessory of the moment which is my bowler hat! I just can't get enough of it! :)

I realise many people would say that wearing red with red hair clashes but in my opinion they just bring out the colour in each other :)

The dress was only £14.99 before the 20% student discount, so a bit of a bargain really :)

What do you think of my dress and bowler combo? If you're a student have you taken advantage of the discount yet? if not, why not?? :)

It Feels Like a Perfect Night To Dress Up Like Hipsters

Hey guys,

Hope you have had a lovely week with pancake day and valentines and all that jazz! Me and my boyfriend don't tend to do valentines day to be honest, I don't need a specific day to tell him I love him :)

We do however celebrate PANCAKE DAY :) Which this year also happened to be my housemates birthday which meant starting off with a delicious meal out at a mexican restaurant complete with nachos and cocktails <3

Hello 2 4 1 cocktails :)

This is me and the birthday girl <3 oh yeah and I dyed my hair red :)

We had such a nice evening with yummy food, great company and amazing cocktails!!!

To top it off we then headed home to make pancakes with the rest of our housemates which was slightly unsuccessful as we bought a pancake mix... never again!

This is the outfit I wore out for dinner with my newly dyed hair :)

Hope you had a great week :) Did you do anything nice for pancake day? or Valentines? I'd love to hear about it :)
