Was going to post an outfit today, but quite frankly, I look like a hot mess at the moment: it's very humid at home right now, and my hair looks awful, my energy levels are at an all-time low (basically, I'm feelin' lazy!) and the lighting is horrendous because there's a little thunderstorm on its' way! I'm currently browsing all manner of websites for things I should keep an eye out for, and inspiration for my new room. (Alana and I move into our new houses for Uni this weekend!) I'm also popping to the hospital in a few hours so my outfit isn't... all that interesting. Think bodycon skirt, huge slouchy top and a few necklaces.


Currently very inspired by Monki, as well as Acne, H&M, Topshop and Zara. I need to buckle down and do a wardrobe clearout and overhaul next week! Having too many clothes is making me lack inspiration to wear nice things because I simply can't find anything in my wardrobe right now. I think I'm going to look for some similar alternatives to the pieces featured above, and if I can't settle on something else, I'll place a little (much overdue) order at Monki!

On Saturday, I'm popping into London to spend the day with Alana. It's been a good two months or so since I last saw her, and we're going to hunt out some interior treasures, sip many a latte and maybe even pop over to the Harry Potter 'Magical Event' at the London Film Museum if it isn't too crazy. The details are all here on their Facebook page for those who haven't already heard about it, and I believe it is running until the end of the year! I can't find the event/exhibition on the LFM website though, so who knows what's happening!

I also want to find some sweet little antiquey bits, photoframes and hanging decorations. I believe this is our main aim on Saturday, to find pretty things for our rooms! Hopefully going to look around Spitalfield's Market, Covent Garden and maybe Portobello, depending on how brave we are feeling, I'm not a huge fan of Saturday crowds! Does anyone have any hidden gems to share with me, for reasonable priced interior stores?


I'll hopefully be back with a "proper" outfit post for you all soon, I want to post some other content on here too, and I've had lots of little ideas that I've jotted down on Post-it notes that have mysteriously disappeared from my room... Until then, I'm going to enjoy the dulcet tones of the last of the storm outside and eat lots of food while no-one is home!

now playing:- b2st - 'on rainy days'

  2. Gah, I wish I could go to that HP thing, except on Saturday I am travelling through London to get back home from Hull :( It will be VERY hectic there, so I doubt you will like it, as I can forsee loaaaaaads of people turning up for it! I hate Saturday crowds too, I always try and do my shopping during the week!

  5. I think its rather hilarious that you think you're having a bad hair day. My first thought was "wow her hair always looks awesome". I understand the humidity thing though. Its currently drizzling where I'm at.

    Kitty: Aw that's a shame. Oh I'm used to crowds aha, used to go to London on most weekends, I can't imagine myself not liking a HP exhibition to be honest. xx

    Katie: I know it's awful! I feel all sticky and gross haha, totes going for a bath in a minute (: Yeah I heard that too, they're looking to open a dedicated store in London as well I think!

  14. Definitely check out Portobello Road but not so much in the shops but further up in the market where there are independent sellers and you must go to Golborne Road Market. You'll find loads of one off pieces. There will be crowds but it's so worth it and a really enjoyable day out xx

    Btw where is your duvet cover from? It's SO pretty!

  15. Hurrah, thunderstorms! :) Great garments you've chosen here, I love Diana jumper. And your nail varnish is beaut, too - sort of a pearly colour!

    Have a brilliant time in London, be sure to let us know what you get up to. x

  18. Becca: Thanks lovely! xo

    Tass: I'll probably go to Portobello if it isn't too busy or hot! I usually prefer to go for a weekday market or on a Sunday! My duvet cover was from BHS I think (:

    Emma: Oh gosh Em, the thunderstorm was terrifying, it set off our house security alarms and I was home alone... Was convinced it had hit my house! Thanks sweet (: Of course I will! xx

    Grace: Thanks sweet!

    Jessica: Aw thank you Jessica, so lovely of you to say! Definitely had to opt for simple, I woke up so early today that anything else wasn't an option! xx
