Blog's Birthday Milestone



I forgot about my blog's birthday although I'm not actually sure when it is... However today I hit a bit of a milestone in my number of profile views so I thought I would take this opportunity to thank all of you who have been following me over the last year. Your support and reading your comments really brightens up my day. So thank you for following and I hope you will continue reading my little blog.

Afternoon Tea Party


Today we went out for my friends birthday. I had ordered the PERFECT dress for afternoon tea and it didn't arrive! So this morning I had to think of a whole new perfect outfit for afternoon tea, and this is what I came up with.

Winter wardrobe for Summer



One problem I have living in Scotland is that it is always cold and raining. So how do I wear my warm winter clothes but keep them looking fresh and spring like?! Today I opted for a winter skirt, a nice bright jumper and scarf but wearing them with wedges, a clutch bag and a bright coloured raincoat. I had a meeting today about a business idea I've had, I can't wait to tell you all about it but I can't for another couple of months. 
So let me know what you think of the outfit!

Rain



A rainy rainy day but an excellent day to show off my new Petit Bateau raincoat. I've been looking for a sensible raincoat for ages and finally settled on this one last week. Perfect for brightening this lovely weather we've been having.

Carrot Cake




I made my first ever carrot cake today and it was lovely! I'm not working that much over the next month so I'm finding things to do like baking because I get bored so quickly.

Clash


Today, I finished my second year at uni. To celebrate getting to the end of another year without failing anything, throwing any tantrums or skiving too many classes I decided to do some online shopping. I bought one really exciting present for myself which I can't wait to wear!! And obviously as soon as I do I will post it on here. 
I love all the clashing prints that are around this season, in particular these Versace inspired prints. However I'm not very sure if these tights go with the outfit. Tricky...

Do Not Babysit In This Outfit



About 6 weeks ago, I fell in love with a dress I saw in Grazia magazine. It was from Primark and I went in at least once a week to see if it was there and it never was. I had almost given up hope and then today it was there, I was so excited! I can't wait to show you it. 
Today I was babysitting for my friends baby girl. A word of warning - this is a terrible outfit for babysitting!

Love for J Brand Twisted Jeans




As you can probably tell from todays outfit, I am a bit dip-dye happy. I seriously LOVE this trend. So you can imagine how I reacted when these J Brand twisted jeans arrived into work today. They are just amazing! I don't think I can justify buying them though because they are quite expensive for something which will be unfashionable by next season. Sad sad times.

'What the f*** are you wearing?!'



Today at work I got asked 'What the f*** are you wearing?!' 
I quite like this outfit though - am I just going crazy?! Please let me know what you think!
I forgot to take a photo of the back of this top, but it is so good and has tigers on it. Next time...

Not Quite Flatforms



I love these trousers, they are part of a suit. I feel that when I wear the complete suit though, I look a bit like Elton John. One day I will post photos of the whole suit, it is definitely worth a look. 
These are my new shoes, my summer equivalent to my black heeled boots. They are not quite flatforms but they are still super comfortable. I would recommend them to everyone.

Clear Out Day




I didn't post yesterday because I spent the whole day clearing out my wardrobe. One of those activities which requires you to scrape your hair back and wearing leggings and a jumper. Trust me, nobody wants to see that outfit! I was quite shocked at how many clothes I had clung on to over the years, horrible dresses which are a hangover from being a teenager. 
All my old clothes have all now left my wardrobe for good. Many of them are going to charity, a few have been photographed and put on ebay and some sad and worn pieces are only fit for the bin. 
It is such a nice feeling having a clear and uncluttered wardrobe!

Work Work Work



I had loads of stock to take back to work today after our photo shoot earlier this week - hence all the bags going on in the photos. 
On Wednesday, I am going to Mary Portas' launch party for her first Scottish store. I have NO IDEA what to wear! Suggestions are welcome!
I hope that your all having a good weekend.

Titanic


I was 6 when Titanic first came out in the cinema, so needless to say I didn't see it. I watched it once on video (yes, video!) but since then haven't watched it again. Tonight I'm going to see it in the cinema and I am honestly so excited!
Please leave your thoughts because I love reading them!

Dip-Dye





Well hello there! I am sorry I haven't posted in so long, I have had such a busy week. I have been to Dundee, York, Edinburgh, Norwich and London.
For the last few days I have been styling on a Van Dal photo shoot which was brilliant fun but really hard work. 
When I was in York I went to a vintage/reworked vintage shop called Deep. I bought this brilliant 
dip-dye jumper.

Coral Reef




Sometimes outfits just work - today is one of those days! 
I stopped shopping in Primark for a few years, but recently some of their stock has been too good to refuse! I saw this t-shirt yesterday and just couldn't help myself - I adore this coral reef print. 
Please leave your thoughts and comments because I love reading them.

DIY Galaxy Print Shorts



Sorry I've been MIA recently! I've been busy doing fun holiday things. 
Yesterday, my friend and I made galaxy print things yesterday using this brilliant Youtube video
I made these shorts. The galaxy print didn't work as well as I'd hoped 
but it was fun to do anyway!

Holiday!


How good are these jeans!? I've wanted them for so long but this week they went on sale, so I got them half price. Winner winner. 
Today I am re-dying my hair to match these jeans. 
I'm on holiday for a week and I can't tell you how excited I am to be doing nothing!
