I just wanted to start this post with a bigbig gushy thank you to the girls on Twitter who have cheered me up to no end this weekend with the X Factor banter as per usual! I have no idea why I've been in such a rubbish mood, probably just Uni stress-induced to be honest, I'm such an over-worrier! I missed my girls lots too, as they were all back home for the weekend, while I stayed back due to lack of funds. Trying to stay positive now though! Once my driving is done and dusted, I won't be spending lots of moolah on lessons anymore! I also got so much lovely feedback from you all about my Styling photoshoot, which has briefly stopped me from worrying about Uni!

Currently watching Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, in my preparation for Friday. Quick shout out to Rebecca at Vivatramp, who is totally doing the same ;)





(Dress, H&M;
Leopard print top, Topshop;
Bodycon skirt, H&M;
Black ribbed tights, Primark;
Heels, River Island;
Clutch, Primark.)

This is a bit of a spin on the standard outfit posts I post on here. I'm constantly trying to bring new things to the blog that I haven't tried! I'm going out for a surprise birthday meal for my flatmate's 21st tonight - sssh ;) - and this is what I'm wearing! Decided on my buttery coloured dress from H&M, with added leopard print top underneath so a subtle hint of pattern. I'm also going to pair this with my classy *ahem* Primarni clutch and simple black peeptoe Mary Jane heels.

Did something a bit different with my hair today. I'm in such a slump with my hair right now, it needs a trim and much more TLC! The wind batters my hair beyond belief, and much as I know a hat of some sort would benefit me, I don't think hats suit me at all. I woke up with my hair slightly wavy this morning, so I decided to French-plait my hair at the back, right at the neck of my head, and secured with a huge leopard print clip, leaving the rest of my hair to hang naturally. I couldn't get any decent photographs of it, but will probably do this again at some point during the week, so photos soon - fingers crossed!

Finally, just wanted to quickly let you know that I might not post tomorrow, as I'm going to see Ellie Goulding live! I'm so excited, I really adore going to smaller, more intimate gigs, nothing beats a bit of acoustic. I bought the ticket with my friend Tasha, as a present to myself after my Eyeko internship, so I'm excited to finally be going! Hoping to get some sneaky snaps and a video if possible!

  4. this looks great :) i love the layering and the way you've added leopard print very subtle, i think it works best when added as a subtle touch :)
    i really should do the same as you and watch the old harry potters to catch up because asking my potter mad friend 'who's that' and 'whats happening now!?' all the time really winds her up! haha
    have a good night :) xo

  5. Uni stress & being alone probably made you feel a bit blerr but never fear as we are all just a tweet away ;) I'm loving the name of this post. Ooh, check me out I even get a mention. Corr, I'm a jammy git! Odd question but are your glasses from Specsavers? I wear glasses occasionally too and they look a lot like my purple ones! That's a rather lovely dress - lovely teamed with the cosy tights! Have a lovely time tonight (: I'm sure you will. Totally jealous you're seeing Goulding.

  6. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this post along with the visual images. You're so chic! I also like your new profile picture.

    You're so lucky you have an internship at Eyeko! What do you think of their products (especially eyeliner)? I was thinking of getting some.

  7. stacey: thank you! oh i love it ;) harry potter mania has gone overboard this week, i'm so excited for friday! my books are all at home though, so i can't reread them just yet.

    irene: thanks sweet (: ugh uni and school work needs to go away, too much stress when i could be focusing on other things! hope your workload isn't too bad!

    jade: i'm SO beyond excited! hoping she sings 'your song' tomorrow as well (:

    jennie: awh thanks lovely! i'm too much of a wimp to wear full-on leopard print, it's not 'me' at all! oh you should, that's what i'm doing this week aha!

    rebecca: oh indeed <3 saw some of the best tweets ever this weekend regarding x factor and harry potter! thanks lovely, hoping to get a video up on here if i manage to get a not-too-shaky one!

  8. Love the outfit so much! It looks adorable, the hint of leopard print is a nice little touch.
    I know what you mean about feeling on your own & spending too much money on driving lessons, that's what I spent my summer working towards, but it paid off - 5 tests & 3 years later! - so keep going because it'll be worth it in the end. :)

    Have fun tonight xx

  11. I was actually thinking how nice your hair looked before reading you were fed up with it- no word of a lie! It looks lovely, but I know exctly how it feels when it's just...annoying!
    I love intimate gigs too - I didn't like Ellie Goulding til the new John Lewis advert...her cover of Your Song is beautiful!

  15. Haha you make me wanna re-read the HP books. Despite being a fan, I've actually only read the final book once. I guess the reason is because it kind of makes me sad that that is the end of the HP series. Do let us know if you enjoyed the movie :) I'm still contemplating whether to go

    Btw, love the Primark clutch. It looks so vintage!

  22. Just stumbled across your blog and found that your 'about me' section could have been about ME haha:
    I'm a Fashion Journalism student, love HP, hate bad grammar AND stupid FB statuses AND uggs (yuk).
    Ed Westwick is also my GG man of choice: I get a little excited when he speaks in that sexy drawl of his. Yum.
    To-do lists are a necessity for me, or I would die.

    ANYWAY - enough of the similarities. Love your Mary Janes AND your blog. Definitely following :)
