Love the combination of a chunky jumper and tailoring (particularly as theyre shorts)


Tope Tijani

Flicking through my Grazia which timely fell through my letterbox at 10am to distract me from finishing my essay. One of the pages which caught my eye (apart from the Ashton-Demi split *shockhorror*) was on article on Bengtfashion.com - a website which showcases up and coming designers. Having a curious browse they have a great selection of unique pieces. Alot of it was a little pricey for my unemployed, student budget, but I did find this awesome, plasticey-pvc clutch by TopeTijana for under #30 which I swiftly added to my basket hehe. Keeping an eye out for more from this designer - the colours and materials are pretty cool! What d'ya think?

defnately worth having a peek: http://www.bengtfashion.com/ - and make sure you check out the jewellery, some of the pieces are amazing


Hellooo Topshop

all via topshop.com

Ordered a few bits and pieces from Topshop today (distracting myself from uni work with a bit of window browsing as usual...). How gnarly is this ring!? Fingers crossed it fits as apparently I have skinny fingers!


zara city bag #59.99

I'm in love wth this structured bag from Zara. Also found this one on Romwe.com
Smile Batwing Black Bag
romwe.com $56.54
I did also find a similar one from M&S but the website wouldn't let me save the pic properly (or maybe its just my silly computer) so you can check out here m&s.com.
not sure which I prefer....any thoughts...?

New in

my shirt arrived today (yay!) and the fit is amazing - definately a keeper! more pics to come :)

The Perfect Tee

washed v-neck tee by Boutique - Topshop.com

I foooound it! THE perfect relaxed tee - that can be thrown on with anything from skinnies and converse to a bodycon skirt and massive wedges. I'm sure it came in black as well, but can't seem to find it on the topshop website (probs just aswell though, as I'd no doubt get one in each colour!)


Pretty in Pink

got these gorgeous flowers sent by my lovely mum on my birthday last week (thanks mum!) and they've stayed looking pretty for so long (I really don't want them to wilt!) - they go perfectly with this uber-cosey hat I just bought

 I've just been browsing on topman.com (don't ask why because I really don't know!!) - some of the jewellery is possible better than the women's no?! definately checking out the men's section next time i'm in topshop!

Olivia Palermo + Bianca Brandolini = two effortlessly chic ladies...just how freaking cool to they look!

The perfect black belt

...I've been on the hunt for a simple, black leather belt for aaaages, and havn't come across anything just quite right until I found this one at Kurt Geiger

KG Kurt Geiger Bunny Wide Belt Women Accessories Belts Brands KG Kurt Geiger 
Bunny Wide Belt Black #45.00 - kurtgeiger.com
Its plain, simple, and THE perfect width!
I think Kurt Geiger will do very well this Christmas with their accessories range - there are some perfect little girlie gifts and stocking fillers that you don't have to spend a fortune on...and I must admit theres a few things that I wouldn't mind unwrapping on Christmas day - think I might have to start a little Christmas Wishlist :)



wow. wouldn't think this was by H&M or that it was bank account pleasing #7.99! booo, just noticed they are sold out online :(

another miserable day today (torrential downpour and hailstones as opposed to gail force winds) - but managed to take some shots outside. All the shops etc in town are preparing for Christmas and this hotel had massive pillars with tinsel and christmas decorations wrapped around and has amazing fairy lights to light it up at night!

one word: yum

zara - 29.99
window shopping before bed probably isn't a good idea! - I'll be dreaming about this skirt from Zara tonight - sexy, structured, simplicity

metal tips

Found it! The perfect collar tipped shirt (would have preferred it in white, but can't complain!) - and its on its way to meeeee right now (keep your toes crossed that it fits!)

Literally about gale force 20 outside and peeing with rain (oh how I love you Scotland)...so more indoor pics :(

Definately cold enough to warrant a chunky knit - this one from topshop is very cosey and surprisngly unitchy.
Trying to take photos in the daylight is getting hard...there literally is about 3 hours of light in the day, and sunshine is definately not guaranteed!

Nifty footwork

shoe label ByLarin have come up with an innovative idea that lets you customise your shoes to suit your mood/outfit by attaching various 'ornaments' - genius! The shoes (heels and ballerinas) come with a metallic button which allows you attach a great selection of bows, flowers and cute gem-pieces.
I think its a brilliant idea and adds a bit of fun to your shoesies (especially if you dare to go quirky and wear odd ornaments!)

new necklace from H&M trend - more pics to come! (hopefully it stops raining though!)
