Throwback... On a Sunday?

23 November 2014



Admittedly I've been a bad blogger. 
For the past two weeks I haven't shot any new content nor have I had the desire too. 
The colder days makes me want to hibernate and stay in bed. The weekdays seem so long that all the weekend makes me want to do is concentrate on everything else except putting outfits together, finding locations and shooting. 
And that's not to say I haven't had anything new to shoot as ASOS have seen me one too may times in the past two weeks...

I've just simply slipped into bad blogger mode. 

This morning prompted me to dig into my archives and un-posted shoots and I stumbled across this beaut of an outfit. 
I bought this for Ceremony Festival in September but never got around to blogging it. 
Such a shame as this is the first co-ord that I have ever liked and complimented me well. 

This co-ord is perfect for the festival season, I love the detail and the tasselling - not too heavy.
This is definitely an outfit that will be making another appearance next year. 

But for now... Enjoy my Throwback.






Right Now
Currently watching Batman Begins.
I've watched so many films this week starring Christian Bale and I've never realised how amazing an actor he is. He is definitely one of the most underrated actors in Hollywood.
I can't wait to watch him in, Exodus: Gods and Kings which is out next month.

This Week
Busy as per. I honestly have nothing to report as my life pretty much consists of:
Work - Home - Sleep and Repeat.

Looking Forward To
Celebrating my son's 11th Birthday next weekend. I can't believe my little baby is growing so quick! It's scary to know that I have a little man and this time next year he will in secondary school! Yikes!

Voucher Codes Blogger Swap Shop

15 November 2014


Voucher Codes have done it again!

I was invited to another Voucher Codes Swap Shop party last Monday by the lovely Fleur - It was such a great event to be a part of again.
I thoroughly enjoyed the last one (see here) so when the invite popped up in my inbox I RVSP'd in 2.5 seconds! 
Leading up to the event, Voucher Codes gave us lovely instagramers a sneak peak of what was on offer. I had my eye on the cleated knee high ASOS boots and a Moschino belt but I knew that I would be out of luck as the benefits of not working in Central London anymore means that events like this are no longer on your doorstep and more like a train, tube and bus ride away.

The Voucher Codes Swap Shop came at the perfect time for me as I had so many items in my wardrobe that I wanted to get rid of but felt like they were to nice to to sell at the car boot sale (if you do car booty's you would understand - I end up selling amazing items for 1p!) and my Depop has had no action for the past two months.

****

I arrived around 7.30-8pm so most of the desirable items were gone.
However I did manage to find a remarkable gold metallic midi skirt from Dorothy Perkins, a black sheer peplum top and a cute denim shift dress from Warehouse.
Pretty happy with my swaps and hopefully I'll blog them soon!

It was great catching up with my girl Shanika who blogs at Shanika Says and her friend and fellow blogger Natalie who blogs over at Sand and Sugar always laughs and smiles when she's around!

The highlight of the evening was the amazing mac and cheese. Although I'm lactose Intolerant I didn't care about the after effects! Cocktails where following and I may have had one too many as by the end of the night everything seemed to be a little blurry...



















Thank you for such a fun evening Voucher Codes!

Grey Moments

12 November 2014


Grey moments are in-betweener moments. 
You don't necessarily feel happy or sad but some what in-between. 
The stage before you either freak out or get over it.

Some of my Grey Moments

****

When I order a Gin and Tonic and the bartender pours 1 shot of gin and the entire bottle of tonic

When I've worked out at the gym for a whole week yet the scales doesn't vindicate this

When I'm getting ready for the day ahead and I look out my window and it's super sunny, but as soon as I step out side its a bloody hailstorm

When the hot guy you've been eying all night finally talks to you - but before he gives you his number he mentions that he may have a girlfriend... side piece or nah?

When one side of my hair is looking hella cool yet the other side doesn't want to agree

When you have nothing to do all day at work then suddenly at the last hour the workflow gets crazy

My entire existence...

****

This outfit is pretty much a grey moment.
Although it oozes grey on the outside - inside I'm slightly in-between yay or nay.

I love this Roll Neck Cape from ASOS - so comfy and perfect for this gust of coldness that has been sprung upon us - yet I feel slightly huge and almost pregnant looking from certain angles. 
No sympathy comments please.
I adore my Joni high-waisted skinny's from Topshop - yet since piling on the weight they almost look spray on.
So what I'm getting at is that I love this outfit - just not on me.



I know what you're thinking... that coat again...

White Bish

3 November 2014



I remember my first pair of white jeans like it was yesterday
I must have been 8 or 9. 
They were Diesel. My first white jeans as well as my first designer item. 
I have no idea where my mum got them from but they were definitely second hand. 
I LIVED in them.
I went to Easter Camp one year and we were participating in an activity which involved us writing with permanent marker pens. I opened up a black permanent maker excited to join in on the fun and "BLAM!" all the ink splattered all over my beloved white Diesel jeans.

If I had my reinvention hat on I could have brought them back to life and made them into a work of art.
But instead I cried like a bitch.


These white mom jeans are pretty much insane. 
Not just because they are mom jeans, ripped and white but because I managed to pick them up for £5 in the Berska summer sale a few months back... Score or what?!

Right Now
Trying to finish off my Christmas Shopping. I have managed to get 2 thirds of my gifts purchased. whoohoo! I'm struggling with something for my Sister and God Children... recommendations welcome!

This Week
If you follow me on Instagram you will see that I celebrated Halloween on Friday. Not so much the scary part more the fancy dress part.
I used to go trick n' treating as a child (without my mums permission) and I do take my son now that he is old enough - but this was the first time I fully embraced it and dressed up.


Looking Forward To
The Weekend... UGH... Its only Monday!
