As you can see I have now flown the nest from halls and am living in a shared house ( with 9 people – I know crazy right?!). I got the loft room – it’s rather quaint and makes my feel a bit like Harry Potter whilst he’s still living with the Dursleys but in a good way. Anyway thought I share it with you now that I’ve finally unpacked …after 2 weeks.
I’ve done a lot this summer; girls’ holiday, festivals, working a mundane summer job at 3am 4 days a week…
Needless to say my bank balance has been rather under the weather as of late, meaning my usual “TREAT YO SELF” shopping trips have completely gone out the window! When it comes to style though one must always remain creative and optimistic even on the darkest of days when the Newlook sale is suddenly way beyond your budget. On a trip to Lincoln to see my dear friend Hollie we decided to wander through its vast array of charity shops, which is where I found the H&M snake-print dress for £2.00 (snake print is my guilty pleasure, sorry), it was giving me an Alexa Chung vibe I just couldn’t say no to.
The shoes were actually from the previously mentioned girls’ holiday to the classy land of Kavos, Corfu. We thought it would be a good idea to catch a bus to Corfu Town, in such of fake Ray Bans and passable Mulberry purses – in reality all we found were very rude shop assistants in the few shops which were actually open. The shoes came from one of these very rude shop assistants, even though normally I would have just walked out after receiving such awful service but…well – these shoes were only €5 so I actually bought 2 pairs in different colours
oops. I may be wrong here but I think that’s about £3? Giving me a beautiful grand total of FIVE POUNDS!! *Applause for the £5 wonder*
Sugar For Spike are pleased to announce the release of their debut collection editorial lookbook.
The inspiration behind the lookbook comes from two friends, looking for an escape from the perfectionism and commercialism of their city, where they stumble into a “secret” underground hangout to have a little carefree fun.
Dancing and twirling throughout the night, and forgetting whom they are and what the world deems as appropriate behaviour, they end up discovering that the liberation from the night out will be one of the memories they will treasure about their youth.
The collection is slated to release at select retailers and online at sugarforspike.com on 7th August 2014. The line is also available for pre-order now, with free international shipping. Closing date for pre-orders is 10th July 2014.

HELLO MY LITTLE BLOGGING CHERUBS, I HAVE RETURNED AFTER A REALLY LONG TIME
Sorry for the lapse of posts over the last few months – but fear not, I have many excuses in the form of essays, deadlines, laziness and drunken nights out (but we won’t discuss those). Oh and also I’m now the social media manager for a new up and coming luxury menswear designer Helen Anthony, so I’ve been rather busy with that (I would appreciate it if y’all had a gander/follow and made me look good merci merci)…
I have also been dabbling in the not so wonderful world of modeling, I’ll explain about that more later but I’ll just give you a little taster below
Might be a few weeks early but was just having a browse through Etsy and ended up scrawling through their sellers’ Valentine’s cards this year; they’re so witty- I just cannot get enough. So how could I not make a top 10 list? In no particular order, here are 10 of my favourites that are bound to put a smug grin on your significant other’s face… (Click the pictures for the Etsy site)
This one comes courtesy from YourMumRang , a London based seller with a variety of cheeky food related cards painted delicately with water-colours.
For those of you who don’t like to beat around the bush (hahahaha see what I did there?) this one’s right up your street from SmuttyDraws
Which bitch wouldn’t want to receive this fine ass card?!Dewlawdees
How adorable is this?! They also have a range of other animals in their shop so check it out HERE
If you’re not really the soppy type like me then maybe this is more your cuppa tea
I’m sure a lot of you can relate to this one…
…A lot of you can probably relate to this one too
This one I’m including purely because I know my good friend Beth will love it, (private joke guys- sorry).
This one goes out to all my fellow ‘Friends’ fans
For those of you who are playing it cool, but not that cool.
