Wishlist #2

It's coming to the end of term, just two weeks to go before I can sit at home in a nice warm (non student) house & watch Christmas films all day and annoy my two cats. But unfortunately that also means the end of the good ol' student loan. Boo! So all I can do right now is online window shopping and drool over the things I really really want but can't buy, and the fact I can't have them makes me want them even more, don't you hate that!? 

As everyone knows I have an unhealthy obsession with ASOS and its now gone that one step further if that is even possible? My obbession has escalated to now wanting t the entire outfit that the models wear in the photos instead of just the one item I was looking at, its really bad I know! I absolutely love this sequin bomber jacket & leather skirt combo, its beautiful! Unfortunately if I was actually going to buy this entire outfit, it would cost my bank over £140. So, it's probably good that my bank balance is quite insufficient at the moment.

I've been looking for a coat with a hood for absolutely forever, and yep I've done it again, fallen in love with a coat that does not have a hood. I think I secretly love buying new umbrellas and being blown away in the wind, 'cause this coatigan is something I've had my eye on for a while now, but will definitely not protect me from the torrential rainfall we're having in Leeds at the moment.

Now I know everyone and their aunties & grandmas have a DW watch, but I can't help but lust over it, & I'm not even a watch kinda gal. But you have to admit, it is beautiful isn't it?  I think my newest peice of jewellery will have to be this spiked necklace from La Moda Uk that I've had my eye on for a while, they have some amazing pieces in at the moment and much more affordable than a DW watch haha! Well I'm off to continue my Uni work (fun fun). Hope everyone has a lovely Monday x

Check Mate!

I realised that I haven't played around with my little stamping kit since I first purchased it, which was a very long time ago! After seeing lots of cute images on Instagram of stamping, I thought I'd give it another go! I really think this attempt is a lot better than my previous one, which you can find here. (Quite a big improvement I'm sure you'll agree)

There are lots of stamping tutorials on Youtube if you want to learn how to do them, they're super easy & you can buy the stamping kit for around £2 from eBay! Bargain.

Hope everyone is excited as I am that xmas holidays are coming up so soon! Don't forget, last few hours to enter my YSL giveaway HERE. Good luck x

Pretty please.

Hi guys! As any third year university student know, the dreaded dissertation is a pure killer! I'm in the middle of writing my first draft and in need of people to fill in my survey which will in hopes help me gain research for my question!

for those of you interested my question is: A discussion about the influences of retro fashion on today’s fashion industry.

I'd appreciate it very much! Hope everyone's having a nice day x

Leeds Fashion Show

In October I volunteered to help backstage at Leeds biggest and most influential Fashion Show, and with it being its 7th successful year running I was quite giddy and excited to be a part of it all!

The show was held at Leeds Town Hall and although its an amazing venue I must admit, I did get lost in there a good few times! I spent my day making sure all the model rails and clothing were in order, assisting to the designers and ensuring all things were ready in place for the start of the show. 

I managed to get a little sneak peek at the presenters rehearsals from the balcony and took a few cheeky pictures when I had a chance. I also managed to get my hands on a pair of Alexander McQueen crystal boots - I almost died!

It turned out to be a really successful show, and all the models, designers, organisers & volunteers went out & partied like it was 1999 after the show! I'll definitely be showing my face again next year too!

Nail Art #14 Seeing Spots

I've been quite busy lately, so spending time on my nails has been pushed to the back of the queue which has therefore lead to lack of nail art posts (sorry guys). I needed a break from my dissertation work last night, and was in the mood to paint my nails and settled on doing this cute little spotty design, I feel its quite fitting for bonfire night also!

How to get this look:

1. Paint your nails with a basecoat to protect them from the polish.

2. I used a pale pink shimmery polish as my base. You can keep your nails clear if you like or choose a darker polish to do this with. I wanted just the spots to be my main focal point.

3. Choose a base colour for your spots. I used this Barry M deep purple colour. I took a small piece of sponge and dabbed it on 1/2 of my nail in varies places. I needed to coats of this.

4. I then selected random colours, not all of which I though complimented each other, but colours that would stand out against the purple and even clash!

5. I used various different sized dotting tools and dipped the end into some polish and began spotting away!

6. I used a white polish last and a small dotting tool to just brighten up my design a little.

7. Finish off with a clear polish to protect your design!

Bonfire Warmers

I think Autumn/winter is my favourite time of year for buying clothes. I have a serious love for knitwear (maybe a very unhealthy obsession too), and I love wrapping up in layers to keep nice & warm. There's just nothing better than snuggling up in a big thick woolly jumper (just can't keep me away from knitwear you know) in front of a bonfire!

I think Bonfire night may just be my second favourite time of the year (after Halloween of course). I just love fireworks, Catherine wheels are my fave for sure, and spending the evening spending money on the dodgems or winning pointless prizes/goldfish that die after two days. What more could you ask for? haha. If I was able to buy a new outfit purely for bonfire night, this would be it!

I've been eyeing up this Tartan panelled coat for a while now. I think I've gained a new obsession for tartan recently, as well as my many other obsessions! I love the fur stole, I can imagine it being very cosy and warm! I just don't agree with the price tag! £80 for a coat without student discount is a lot of money!

As for the Tunic & Cardi, I think these go perfect together! Deep blue is everywhere at the moment, there's just no escaping it! Ark do lovely knitwear too at really affordable prices! They have this cardi in Oxblood & Cream if blue is not your colour.

I'm really looking forward to tomorrow night. There's a bonfire and firworks at my local park in Leeds which I'm going to which also means a break from the dissertation reading! Anyone love bonfire just as much as I do?
