The Sheer Dress

29 December 2016

Guys! It's my last outfit post of 2016! WTF how did this year go so fast.... I've probably posted a handful of times this year but I'm glad you guys still remain readers... the old and the new!

My final outfit post of 2016 is this sheer number. I remember seeing a similar one in Zara a few months back although it was sold out in my size. Then I saw this beaut on the asos website, and for only £17.99 it was hard to resist. What I like most about this sheer dress is that I can dress it up for a night-time look or dress it down for a daytime look. I love when I find pieces like this - it's like getting two outfits for the price of one! 

Dress - asos | T-Shirt and Boots (old) - H&M | Jeans - Bershka 

Right Now
Chilling, listening to my Spotify playlist - it's called 'Random Ish' for anyone that wants to follow it. I am so chill right now it makes me happy. I wish most days were like this...

This Week
Has been pretty chill. Actually, scrap that. It's been a mixture of chill and crazy. What's nice about the festive season is that most of your friends are off work too - I've been catching up with the faves, drinking, eating and just having fun. It's been nice.

Look Forward To
Going back to work! Whaaatttt - you say? I actually am. I can't wait to get stuck into this year and just do what makes me happy and work is one of those things. I've decided to go into the new year with a positive attitude and most importantly, enjoy living.

How's the festive period been treating you?

The Man Repellant Mules

21 December 2016

Isn't it strange how some men get repulsed by the most stunning and gorgeous items of clothing? It's almost like they don't get it, they don't get fashion, they don't get style and they don't get you! I came to that conclusion when I snap-chatted these gorgeous mules on my snapchat a few weeks ago. Literally two-thirds of my snapchat private messaged me to tell me how ugly they were and most of them were men... typical.

'Tinfoil shoes', 'paper mache' and loads of other insulting words were used to describe this work of art. However, that didn't phase me because I bought them. HA-Fucking-HA. 

I legit had a cinderella moment when I tried on these h&m mules. My friend Beth who was with at the time wasn't fond of them when I first picked them up, but when I tried them on she knew I had to buy them. There's something about an ugly shoe that you have to try them on to understand why they work. 

Unfortunately, I couldn't find these mules on the h&m website and I haven't seen them in a store since I bought them so I put together some other options which are just as sassy!

Right Now
Laying in bed... No work until the New Year bitches!

Last Week/This Week
Apart from fighting the dreaded cold/flu that has been going around, it's was my last week at work until next year! Whoop-de-doo! I usually never take the week before Christmas off because it's always so chill. But starting a new job I had to take my remaining annual leave... so here we are! Last week had been a manic week to end on, so happy to get some well-deserved rest!

Looking Foward to...
I want to say Christmas but I'm not. I hadn't bought a single present until two days ago. I feel like each year I'm becoming more and more unorganised. I miss the days when I had Christmas shopping completed by the end of November. I hate that I've become this person that leaves shit like this to the last minute. Makes me feel like I haven't got my shit together!
So... what I am looking forward to is a much-needed break. 

Christmas Faves

6 December 2016

How did we get here so bloody quick? Summer was literally yesterday. I actually remember last Christmas perfectly and now we're back here again... To be completely honest I feel more stressed than ever this year. Not only did my son turn 13 on the 1st December, (basically cost me an arm and leg) there's been a few changes in my life recently. Some for good and some for bad. This year has been a rollercoaster of emotions and Christmas festivities has taken a back seat. 
On another note - I'm trying to be more responsible with money and spending what I need rather than what I want. I want to buy my house soon so I'm saving like a crazy women. I made a vow that I'm going to leave all my careless spending in 2016. Wish me luck.

So.... moving on. Here are a few gems that I've racked up on my wish-list this year.

I've joined a book club. Yes an actual book club! It's actually pretty cool. We're now on our second book and although the nostalgia of reading a real book vs tech is second to none I'll rather have the convenience of reading from a Kindle than book. Especially for the commute to work. Lugging around a hefty book is not cute.

I've had my 100ml bottle for over 3 years and it's now on it's last few drops. Time to re-stock this beauty. However the price is a little off putting so anyone who wants to gift this bad boy... feel free.

Aloe Vera Plant
I have no plants in my house. I know crazy. The truth is I can't care for plants. It's more than likely they'll die in my care due to lack of care and watering. But I know for a fact that Aloe Vera plants don't require water daily or even regularly so this is one plant I can get down with.

*Since writing this post I have now purchased these babies! 

How fucking insane are these beauties. And for £40 you can't go wrong. These babies scream fun! I can see myself rocking these on a night out during the holidays. Or even on NYE if I get invited anywhere. Or I'm happy to just wear them while watching HBO's Insecure. 

I've had my eye on this bra ever since I visited their Mayfair store for work purposes. (No I am not an escort). I've never spent more than £40 on a bra but this beauty could definitely make me change my mind. It's also pretty versatile so I reckon I could also wear it as outwear too. 

I've been looking for the right purse to replace my current Bodens one. I hate massive purses - I've been looking for a nice leather one to fit all my cards and coins in.  

Basically everything I want in one jacket.
