It was a lovely day today and halfway to uni I realised I had worn the wrong clothes, I was roasting in my leggings so I decided to go shopping and these lovely trousers are what I bought! They are so comfy I felt like I was in pyjamas whilst sat in Uni all day.  

I also Bought this lovely little cardigan from Primark for only £6.00 which I thought was great. It'll be perfect for throwing on over my summer dresses when the weather can't make it's mind up. 

Today's Post title is because I've been listening to some lovely songs from 'The Commitments' today. I haven't seen the film in such a long time but I love having the soundtrack on in my car.

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?

New Healthier Hair. . .

 So I had a hair cut totally different to what it has been for a long time. To be honest with you I actually can't remember the last time I had a hair cut, my hair was in a terrible condition to say the least. 
I love it when I ombred my hair and was so happy when I did it but it totally just trashed the ends of my hair. 

It just shows how important it is to look after your hair because I've had 5 inches off mine today you should of seen the the mass of split ends on the hairdressers floor! I was absolutely petrified but I quite happy with how it has turned out and I think I prefer my hair darker as well. 

(me at the hairdressers just before my hairdresser started chopping.)

New fresh cut. The hair dye I have used it Loreal Cast Creme Gloss in 515 Chocolate Truffle.

Blooper Picture. The wind was crazy.

Black Footless Tights . Primark . £2.50
Pink Shirt . H&M . £8.99 . Old Stock
Brown Studded Bag . Wallis . £30.00 Old Stock

So Today I decided the sun was shining and I decided to paint my nails some lovely pastel colours and this is what came up with. I don't often paint my mails different colours but I thought these colours look so nice together. these two nail varnishes I  have found to be pretty great they don't chip easy but they do take a while to dry so you have to be pretty patient at time. 

What do you guys think?

Black & Gold Tapestry Messenger Bag . River Island . £35.00 . Old Stock 
Bracelet Set . Unknown . Gift .

Hello Lovelies I hope you are all well. Today's outfit post was what I wore to Uni on Thursday when the sun was shining but it was definitely not warm. I bought this lovely little top from Primark the other day for just £4.00 which I thought was so nice for the price I also got a turquoise one as well. 

I am a very happy bunny this week because I found my favourite Cardigan I bought ages ago and thought I'd left at a friends house forever ago. This Leopard print cardigan when I first bought it was literally worn to death so when I lost it I admitted defeat and figured I'd got my moneys worth. It just shoes it's sometimes worth digging a little deeper in your wardrobe because you never know what you might find. 

This is also my first outfit post with my hair tied up ( I think ). I don't like my hair being tied up usually It's only up if I'm at work of particularly tired. Do you ever feel like that?

Do you have your favourites with your Clothes?

4. Denim Stud Dress . £19.99 . (Buy here)
5. Midwash Denim Dungaree Shorts . £19,99 *£15.99 . (Buy here)

For today's wishlist I have chose to do a wishlist of some of the lovely denim item's that are in Internacionale at the minute. I decided to do this because they have an offer on at the minute were you can get up to 30% off on some of their denim pieces I have marked these reduced prices with and asterix*. 

The reason I have called this Daring Denim is because some of these I would not usually consider purchasing. I've wanted a pair of dungarees for ages but just haven't plucked up the courage to purchase any so whilst these are on offer I'll definitely be going to try them on. I really like the sleeveless shirt, I don't really like my arms on show but I think this would look great over a cute summer dress. 

Would you buy any of these items? Do you dare to double denim?

Mini Primark Haul & Easter Sunday

Mini Primark Haul

So firstly I thought I'd show you some lovely bits of jewellery I bought from Primark the other day. They had reduced loads of the Jewellery so the bargain hunter in me just couldn't resist. In total I spent just £4.00 for the lot and couldn't be happier!. 

The Purchases !

 So firstly I the sun was shining and I decided to purchase another pair of their good ol' £1.00 sunglasses. I live in these when its summer but I had to break mine so my sister could use them in a play so I've been meaning to buy some more. 

I then moved onto the jewellery and found these little beauties reduced from £1.50 to £1.00 so I just couldn't resist. I love big bold stud and these will look great with my hair in a messy bun for those days at uni. 

Now this necklace I saw when it was £3.00 and I had it in my hand at the till but at the last minute changed my mind. (psychic?) So when I saw it for £1.00 I knew it was a sign. The necklace is actually three linked chains of different lengths with each of these charms on the end, but for photographing purposes this is more clear. 

And finally I saw this little thing just lying on it own and something made me pick it up. I think this one was £3.00 as well and was also reduced to £1.00. I don't normally go for pale pink when it comes to jewellery but  I really like the shade and the length of the necklace. 

Easter Sunday 

Lucky enough this week I happened to get a rare Sunday of with my boyfriend so we decided to make the most of it and since all the shops were shut, we took a trip to a local park. The weather was sunny and freezing, but we still went for a walk round to see all the animals and feed the ducks etc. 

The peacocks were well and truly strutting their stuff and I could miss the chance to take some photos. And one of the cutest little Shetland pony that I want to take home. 

 Leather Jacket . Dorothy Perkins . Stripy Dress . Slipper Shoes . Red/Orange Scarf . Primark . Leggings .  Sainsburys
