Galaxy Leggings



Well, I'm not sure why I haven't owned these leggings until now. I have wanted them for so long and they are just amazing. I might never take them off.

On Saturday night, a drunk girl shouted at me on the street because I was wearing jelly shoes. I was so shocked that somebody would shout just because of what I was wearing. It left me wondering, 'are jelly shoes actually really uncool?!' and I was doubting my footwear choice. Today however, I was getting my hair cut, still wearing my jelly shoes, and reading Grazia. There was a whole article about how jelly shoes are becoming increasingly popular and fashionable so my faith in the shoes was restored. Thank God!

Olympics


It feels wrong to eat a bag of Maltesers while watching the olympics, but that is exactly what I'm doing. I can't say that I was looking forward to the Olympics but as soon as I watched the opening ceremony, I haven't been able to stop watching. 
I looove the Great British gymnastic team's leotards which were designed by Stella McCartney, I would wear that all the time. So sparkly...

I Can't Make You Love Me



In three weeks I will be putting on a concert, it will be taking place on Princes Street, which is the busiest street in Edinburgh. I have to sing for a whole hour so I should have started practising weeks ago, but no, I started today. I like to record my practices so that I can listen back to them but I'm also going to post them on my blog so you can have a little listen to. This song that I've recorded is 'I Can't Make You Love Me' and is absolutely one of my favourite songs, I think it is beautiful. I can only hope that I do it justice when I sing it. Have a listen and let me know what you think.

5am Drunk Shopping Spree



I'm a bit tired today (explaining my rather grumpy looking face). I went out dancing last night and decided it was a great idea to wait up for the new Black Milk launch which happened at 5am. I have spent the whole day trying to convince myself that I definitely need the things I purchased and that it was not just a drunk decision. My bank balance does not agree with me. 
I forget I own things and then get really, really happy when I see them sneaking around the back of my wardrobe. I forgot about this skirt but am glad it's back in my life.

Two by Two


It just won't stop raining, I have to stop hiding indoors though, put on a rain coat and start blogging again. I felt these leggings were fitting considering the weather, they sum up how Scotland looks right now. I think I'm going to start building an arc soon and round up some animals. The animals came in two by two...

Dress Down Sunday




Today I went shopping for a dress to wear next weekend. The only dress I could find was in the Topshop sale and was a steal at £9! It's a very cute floral print dress but it had a hole in the front which I was unsure of, so have spent the rest of the day altering this dress so that I can now wear it back to front and have a hole at the back. So that was fun.

Friday 13th



Today I bought my first pair of black trousers in 4 years. After I left school I got rid of all the black shoes, trousers, jumpers and white shirts from my wardrobe. It has taken a really long time for these items to work their way back into my life. 
This playsuit is one of my favourite things in my wardrobe, whenever I don't know what to wear, it is my go to piece. It is so comfy and goes with everything. Just thought I should tell you all how much I love it. 
I hope that Friday 13th hasn't been too cruel to you!

Andy!



I won't lie to you all, I think I am obsessed with black milk. Everything they do is amazing, even simple, black, wet-look leggings like these are perfect. They feel amazing when you're wearing them and look even better. 
I've got a bit hooked on the tennis today so I'm going to go back to watching it...come on Andy Murray!

Chasing the Rain Away



Well... the rain is going mental - everywhere is flooding! Fortunately, the rain eased off a bit this evening so I had the chance to take a photo of today's outfit. It is the perfect outfit to cheer me up on a miserable day like today - nothing like yellow and some brilliant socks to chase the blues away.

New-Magazine-Week





This week is new-magazine-week, my favourite time of the month. This time around, Elle and Vogue are illustrating the big trends which we will be wearing come Autumn. When I was reading two outfits really caught my eye, the first is this dress by McQ Alexander McQueen which I am just in love with. Lace, florals, full skirt - what is not to love!? It was in Vogue to highlight the 'Winter Bloom' trend, I think in a few months time I will be all over that. 
The next outfit comes from Dior and is telling us all that we WILL be wearing top to toe in purple in the coming season. I love this skirt because of the amazing contrasting fabrics, the neat waist and the longer length (another thing we will be seeing a lot of).

The Day My Feet Went Viral









After months and months of waiting, my Black Milk X Jeffery Campbell Litas finally arrived. 
I posted a photo of them on the Black Milk Facebook page, as is tradition when you buy something from them. A few hours later they posted my photo and it went a little crazy - over 500 people 'liked' my feet in 10 minutes! The photo has now had thousands of 'likes' and hundreds of 'shares' and my thoughts have been confirmed - these shoes were definitely worth the wait.

Underwater Safari




I have been lusting after this bag for forever. It comes in so many beautiful colours, is a great size and is so pretty. On Sunday I was shopping with my sister and it had 20% off so I just couldn't resist it anymore. 
I have been a bit bad at spending recently, which is bad for my holiday savings, but great for my blog as I have some great new outfits to wear.
