Back. . . Celebration Meal Outfit

White Cardigan . Primark . £6.00
Paisley Print Dress . H&M . sale £10.00
Tan Studded Sandals . Primark . £6.00

So... this is what I wore to my lovely meal out to celebrate me passing my degree with a 2:1. 
The sun was shinning and it was a warm evening so I decided to grab one of my old summer dresses out the wardrobe. 

I must say though please excuse my multiple bites on my legs, I went on a school trip with the school I was recently volunteering at and got mauled by the mosquito's. Then to top it off turns out i'm allergic to bite cream. So yeah I've got these horrible marks all over my legs which are still here 3 weeks later. 
So if anyone knows any natural remedies Let me know ! 

So I'm back thank you for being patient with me and I hope you like my outfit :)

Absent Blogger

Hello there, 

I know I'm so sorry I've been such a bad blogger in recent weeks. I am currently volunteering at a lovely primary school for some experience for my course in September. I'm having such a great time with the kids and learning so much, unfortunately with the volunteering and working weekends I haven't had a day off in two weeks. (officially knackered)

So as soon as I'm free for summer I'll hopefully be back to blogging normality but for now my sincere apologies and please don't give up on me :). 

On a plus side I got my Uni results and I got a 2:1 ! I'm so happy its unreal. It's still not sunk in that I have an actual degree!!  

So anyway, sorry again for being missing but I will be back to normal soon : )

Little Bit of Sunshine Goes A Long Way

Vintage Maxi Skirt . Charity Shop . 50p
Black Vest Top . Primark . £2.50 
Denim Jacket . Primark . £18.00 
Brown Peep Toe Shoes . Primark . £8.00 
Oversized Structured Tan Bag . Matalan . £16.00 . (Buy here)

I think this might be my favourite skirt to date. It is a proper granny skirt but I love it so much and for 50p it was my best purchase ever. I thought the best think to do was to pair it with my denim jacket so that it didn't look so grannyish (not a word I know). 

Hello Strangers, been a while since my last post but I've been so busy volunteering at school. (which I am absolutely loving). So any way this is the outfit that I wore to my last day at my exhibition. It was rather emotional but the sun was shining so I decided not to make it ruin the last day and took lots of photos of my exhibition. I'll be putting those in another post because I took a lot of photos. 

What do you think of my Maxi skirt? Do you like my outfit?
Let me know !

So this sunny little outfit is what I wore to a BBQ this past weekend. If you've seen my last post I only bought this top on Saturday but just couldn't wait to wear it. The weather stayed nice enough and it was just warm enough.We had a lovely night at my Aunties house and it was nice to catch up with the family. 

We were there to say a final farewell to my granddad who died last year and it felt like we could all finally be at peace. We've had some troubles the past year or so in my family and it was so nice to be all together and share old stories and finally be happy.

New Look and Primark Haul

Brown Brogues . New Look . was Unknown . now £8.00 . 

Tan Embroidered Pumps . New Look . was £12.99 (I think) . now £ £6.00 

 Stripy Blouse . Primark . £4.00 . 

Brown Studded Sandals . Primark . was £6.00 now £3.00 . 

Black Studded Sandals . Primark . was £12.00 now £6.00

4 Pack Tribal Bracelets . Primark . £2.00

So hard to believe but I bought all these lovely items in one day. I decided that i have a lot of tatty shoes that need getting rid of so when I saw the price of some of these beauties I couldn't resist. The sandals are so nice and easy to wear and for the price It doesn't matter if they only last a year. The Brogues are more for when I'm volunteering at school but will most probably end up wearing them all the time. 

 I also bought ( yes I know ) another one of Primarks £4.00 tops. I love the colour of this one and think it will look great with some denim shorts in summer. The bracelets I bought go really well with the top which was totally unintentional but great non the less. 

What do you think of my buys? Are you finding anything in the sales?

Hello Lovelies, so the other night it was our fund raising gig for my Uni courses trip to The D&AD in London and this is what I wore. 

As part of our Graphic Design course we have the opportunity to go to the D&AD "New Blood" exhibition in London to show our work to the best of the business. Over the past few months we have been doing various different fund raisers from bake sales to fifa competitions and this gig was the grand Finale of fundraising. 

So on to the outfit, Were we held the gig is quite a small venue so I decided to dress a bit more casual for a normal night out. I bought this beauty of a dress from primark the other day and I couldn't believe how cheap it was. I teamed it with my lovely Brown Platforms. 

Do you like my outfit? Have you bought this dress?

Mini Primark Haul

Aztec Print Dress . £5.00  

Stripy Black & White Vest . £4.00

Long Peace Chain . was £2.00 now £1.00

Brown Hair Grips . £1.00 

All Items form Primark 

So just a quick little Primark haul to show you, I had my final assessment at Uni so thought I'd treat myself with some cheeky purchases on the way back to my car. ( Total De tore )

Anyway best purchase, definitely the amazing aztec dress. I can't believe it was only a fiver. It will be great to throw on with a pair of leggings for a lazy day. I'm a big fan of the primark £4.00 vest that they have in at the minute I already have two of them ( black & turquoise ) So when I saw this black and white stripy one I knew I had to get it. There so cheap and easy to wear how can you not?

I have a short peace necklace that I got in New York but I've been looking for a long one for a while now so when I saw this one reduced to just a pound how could I resist!. Now the hair grips I know aren't very interesting but my room eats them I got through so many it's a joke, so for a pound I'm not to fussy and they seem pretty sturdy. Some I buy don't last five minutes. 

What do you think of Primark at the mo? Have you made any great Purchases?
Let me know!

So it's been a while since I did a wishlist so I thought I would gather together some of my favourite pastel blue pieces from New Look. 

My favourite item on this wish list is the stripy skater skirt, I don't think its everyone's cup of tea but I love the pattern on it and I think it would look great with a white blouse and some wedges. I seem to have a huge jewellery collection but I don't really wear a lot of it however I do love these bracelets there so versatile and have such a nice pattern on them who wouldn't want them.

These wedges are definitely way out of my price range for shoes but a girl can dream right? there so nice and would instantly make any outfit look so classy. Someone buy me them! 

I hope you like this wishlist, Would you buy any of the items?
Let me know.!

Black & White Stripy Blazer . George Asda . was £14.00 now £3.00 . Old Stock
Black Top . Primark . £4.00 

Just a quick post to show you what I wore to a Sci-Fi convention in my little city of Hull last Saturday. Yes I went to a Sci-Fi convention. Truth be told I am a closet nerd and It was the best thing ever!.

 I found this little golden nugget of a jacket on our sale rail at work and I couldn't resist it at such a cheap price. I always thought I didn't wear that much monochrome but recently it seems to be all I'm wearing and buying!

However the best thing of all was getting to meet Ian Whyte, (and getting his autograph). If you haven't heard of him he is the crazy tall actor who plays the predator in the Alien V's Predator Movies and is 'The Last Engineer' in the recent 'Prometheus film. 

Alien Ring . £2.99 . Ebay . (Buy here)

It was so amazing to meet him and I even wore my Alien ring which you guys haven't seen yet.  (ultra geek). I hope your not to ashamed of my secret closet geekness and don't disown me to quickly! 

Hope you like my outfit and my little outburst!

Cream Cardigan . Asda George . £10.00 . (Buy here)

I'm Sorry guy's I know I've been pretty absent, It's just with all this uni work and volunteering and beavers and school and working I can't handle it all. If I could quit and blog full time I would but it's my dream to teach and I need my degree and money to get me there. 

So on to the outfit. I wore this on the rare occasion the sun was out and knowing I was at uni all day I didn't want to get too hot. I bought this skirt for my summer holiday last year in the river island sale and it was an absolute steal. I love elephant print and this is just too cute.

Black Studded Top . Primark . £4.00

H&M Monochrome Madness Wishlist

1. Patterned Blouse . £19.99 . (Buy here)
2. Black & White Bag . £24.99 . (Buy here)
3. Polka Dot Leggings . £7.99 . (Buy here)
4. Patterned Crop Top . £14.99 . (Buy here)
5. White Slingbacks . £24.99 . (Buy here)

So It's been a while since my last wishlist post so whilst looking through the H&M website I was inspired to create this monochrome wishlist. I never really thought I like the monochrome style in spring but I'm totally loving what they have in at the minute. 

My favourite Item in this wishlist is the Patterened blouse, which on the website is seen as more of a jacket. I  think its totally gorgeous and would look great thrown over some denim shorts and a vest for that monochrome twist on the boho style. I also love the polka dot leggings which normally you wouldn't find me anywhere near but I'm finding myself being more daring with my clothes since starting my blog. 

What do you think of my wishlist? Do you like to be Daring with your style?
Let me know!
