The Prettiest Things

Hey lovelies, how are you all? I hope you've missed me! I'm actually blogging from my university library, check me out! I'm actually in here doing work on my little black dress project, reseaching structure and Gareth Pugh. I need to do 10 sketchbook pages over the weekend but I'm loving the course so far! I haven't really done anything incredibly notable since my last little post. I flyered for the Vintage Fair last Saturday, which was so much fun and I bought the gorgeous ring in the photo, it was only £2! And I've been working for Sheffield Parties which is great! I think my Dad has posted my laptop charger out today so I think I should be back to blogging normally next week! Hope you're all well :) xxx

Sorry for not posting!

Hey lovelies, just a little quick post today to say that I am actually still alive! I've been back in Sheffield a week now and I'm absolutely loving it, everything is back to normal! My flat is stunning (I promise to post photos soon) and my course is so great, I can't wait to start it properly tomorrow! Only problem is my laptop charger is broken and I don't have any internet yet! Hopefully it'll be all sorted by next week! I've had to steal my flatmate's laptop to write this cheeky post! But anyway I hope you're all well and I promise I'll be back posting normally as soon as possible! P.S- I've changed to now! :) xx

Paul's Boutique Purse

Hey lovelies, long time no speak! Well not really but it feels like it! I hate not being able to blog properly, but hopefully after this weekend I can get back to normal. Anyway this is just a really quick post today to show my gorgeous amazing new Paul's Boutique purse, it has a little gold chain too so it can be worn as a going out bag, but I don't think I'll use it like that in case it gets ruined. I love it so much :) Anyway I'm off back to Sheffield in about 3 hours so I have to get finish getting sorted out now, I'm so excited! Hope you're all having an amazing weekend and good luck to everyone moving into halls and starting uni this week :) x

my new favourite shoes

Hey lovelies! This is going to be a totally boring post today I'm afraid! I haven't done anything all week apart from packing! I'm so very nearly finished, I resolved to take less stuff down to Sheffield this year but it's looking like more at the moment, oops! I have 3 giant bags just filled with shoes. And I still have a massive pile of clothes that need to be packed and all of my fur coats! Then kitchen and bathroom stuff and my quilt on top of that. I have no idea how it's all going to fit in the car! I'm surprisingly calm actually, this time last year I was ripping my hair out ha! Only 2 days to go after today! 
Anyway, seeing as though I can't really do any outfit posts this week, I thought I'd show you all some of today's purchases. Stripey top, leggings and patent loafers: all from New Look. The top is a bit tighter than what I wanted but I still like it, I'll probably just wear it under a bodycon skirt on lazy days. 2 pairs of basic black leggings, because I keep ruining ones I already own, I don't know how I do it! I adore these loafers, I've been after some for a while but I have always been in 2 minds about them for some reason. The ones I originally wanted had like a gold buckle instead of the tassel, but they weren't in my size and these ones were a lot cheaper (only £14.99) But I think I like these ones better now I've gotten them home!
P.S- I passed my summer project, where I had to make the hat to be 'found on the deck of the flying dutchman' See it here. I am so so pleased, I've been worrying about it for weeks!

another leopard print dress

Dress- Topshop // Boots- River Island (found in charity shop) // All Jewellery- George @ Asda

Hey lovelies, hope you all had a good weekend! I didn't really do much apart from impulsively going out in Sunderland with Kate on Saturday night. It was so much fun and only the third time I've been out properly all summer. As much as I love my friends, most of them are totally boring, bring on freshers week (again!) I wore the outfit in the picture, yes another leopard print dress, I told you all I was obsessed. I bought this dress in October last year and I'm not even sure if I've shown it off on my blog before but it's definitely one of my favourites, I lived in it in Sheffield ha! I love those boots as well, they are so comfortable! Please excuse my giant legs in the photo and my messy bedroom, I'm finally starting to pack up all of my stuff today, I'm so excited! Is anyone else going to Sheffield Hallam this year or just living in Sheffield? I'd love to make some proper blogger friends :) 
P.S- The winner of my give away is the lovely Chloe of I'll send your goodies out asap :) xxx

once, twice, again

Dress- H&M // Boots- River Island (found in charity shop) // Earrings- Primark // Bracelets- Vintage & Topshop

Hey lovelies! This my outfit from last night, we all went to the pub for lots and lots of drinks as Hannah is going back to university in Liverpool today. I wish I was going back to Sheffield today, I'm really dying to get back! I only have another 8 days to wait though, which will probably fly over, I'm going to start packing on Monday. I'm dreading packing, the amount of clothes I have is unbelievable, but I can't bare to leave any at home, just in case! Anyway, it was a really good night and we all got really dressed up to celebrate. I adore this H&M dress, Bekah bought me it for Christmas a few years ago but I rarely wear it, and I don't know why, it's so stunning! I love the big ruffles around the hem line! Also yesterday, my Mama picked me up a few goodies from Asda. 
ELLE- Agyness Deyn looks amazing! // Nailene false nails- which I plan to paint nice designs on because I seriously am useless with painting my own nails // Maybelline Expert Eyes Crayon Oriental in black- I absolutely love this! // George @ Asda Eye Primer- I really don't like this, there's barely anything in the tube and when I squeezed it, it went everywhere. And when I finally applied it to my eyes, it just rubbed off all of my foundation- do not recommend! // Maybelline Forever Strong Pro nail varnish in Rose Poudre- I love this, the colour is so sweet and it hasn't chipped at all! // Rimmel Sun Shimmer Instant Tan- this is one of my beauty must-haves but my mam accidently got light shimmer instead of dark. It still looks lovely on, just not as dark as I like!

purchases and nails

Floral Purse- Peacocks, £6 // Rimmel Day 2 Night mascara // Maybelline Nail Varnish in Black // Gold Bangles- George @ Asda, £5 // Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in Peach Glow // QVS foundation brush- Asda // Floral double finger ring- Peacocks, £4.50 // Snake ring- Peacocks, £5

Hey lovelies, how are you all? I've been shopping down the town centre today, getting more bits and bobs for uni! Only 11 days and 16 hours to go! I'm so excited! I always tend to spend a LOT of my student loan on make-up so I'm trying to stock up on the things I like before I go! I was dying for a new purse too, like a slimmer one for nights out as my Marc Jacobs one is quite chunky and doesn't fit in going-out bags and I would be terrified of losing it! I love the design on this one and it was so cheap! I just hope it fits all the rubbish I carry around in it ha! And of course, I picked up some rings, I really love the jewellery at Peacocks at the moment, in fact I totally love Peacocks all together. I wore the leopard print dress I got from there on Friday to go out for drinks and it looked great! (I forgot to get outfit photos though, silly me!) My mam bought me a few other odds and ends today like shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, toothpaste etc etc! I can't wait to have an en-suite bathroom all to myself again! The only other things I've done today are watched Flight of the Conchords, organised my jewellery box and painted my nails! (Barry M Pink Flamingo and GOSH nail glitter)

Dress- George @ Asda // Belt- New Look

Hey lovelies, how are you all? This is the dress I bought the other day, it is so so nice on, I really love it! I've had that New Look belt for years and it is the perfect match. I used to have a crazy belt obsession circa 2008, I haven't bought any recently! Anyway I got ready and put this outfit on this morning which was totally pointless as I literally haven't done anything! Except nursing the hangover from last night's party, it was my mam's birthday party so the whole family came over for food and drinks etc. That and drinking coffee and watching the Rachael Zoe Project. Also being extremely excited for tonight's Corrie, how sad am I please? ha! Tonight I'm going to make a few more of those cat/rabbit things in different fabrics etc. When I get back to Uni I'm going to start up an online shop maybe, what do you all think? :)
