Three must have coats

There is not mistaking that it is winter. As much as I hate the weather especially the horrible English storms, I love layering, boots, scarfs and hats.
Especially in this weather, and my ability to easily get a cold, it's almost impossible for me to go out without a coat. so here's my advice on picking a jacket for every occasion.

1. Topshop- Navy Blue bomber by boutique (£160.00)
I love bomber jackets as they are so versatile, you can wear them as a coat for those windy days or underneath a thicker jacket for those snowy days. You can dress it up with a nice shirt or down with a t-shirt.

2. Zara- short combination anorak (£69.99)
I am not a fan or puffa jackets but I really this one as I can actually imagine wearing out with a nice pair of skinny jeans and stilettos and not a pair of sweat pants people seem to always match them with. I also think the price it quite reasonable and the jacket will give you maximum warmness this winter.

3. H&M - Wide coat (£69.99)
This is quite an out there jacket but I absolutely love it! It's eye catching and will really get people starring out you amongst the dreary weather and colours. I recommend wearing this with something quite smart and less casual as I can't quite picture this being someone's everyday jacket and it probably doesn't give as much warmth as the other two jackets

Sorry for being away from the blogging scene for such a long  time but I having really needed to find the motivation. Please keep reading and have a lovely new year!

What I am wearing- cross necklace

I brought this necklace a while back on a family holiday to Turkey- I think I was 5 and I've still got it. The other day I saw it poking in the corner of my bedroom and have decided to start wearing again. I didn't realise how much I loved it  and it's a great accessory to wear with a graphic tee or a polo neck seeing as it's winter time.
 I 'm not much of a jewellery fan, but I really like this simple piece.

Anti- Bullying week 2013

It's been a pretty hectic week for me revising for my mocks and a Spanish speaking (which I thought went terribly) Anyway, for those of you who have been reading for a while we know that it is important to me that bullying is reduced in schools.
Please be sure to raise awareness of bullying everywhere maybe by just a small blog post like this or something lie a video
If you are looking for more information on the various types of bullying or some advice please check out this link http://www.bullying.co.uk/general-advice/?gclid=CKvQoJeb_roCFW_JtAodTgsAWA

Trend spot

I think it's amazing when we managed to incorporate things that would not normally be fashionable, into something fashionable. For example, things like overalls, bowler bags and now holdall bags?

For those of you who don't know what a holdall bag is here is a quit definition/ trend knowledge:
In American English, a gym bag is a large bag made of cloth or leather typically with a rectangular base and a zippered opening at the top. Two handles enable the bag to be carried, and a (usually removable) strap lets the user support the bag on the shoulders.
In British English, a holdall (or occasionally hold-all) may be a similar bag but may often have wheels and possibly a telescopic handle. The term covers a wide variety of types of bag.

How do we managed to do this?
I really love the idea of a holdall bag because I find them quite versatile, cute and almost business like. I would recommend to wear it with a fur jacket, some cut out boots and some skinny trousers.

Style tip: I would recommend purchasing a croc print hold all bag because in y opinion they are the most stylish and stand out against a simple outfit.

Life update

Hi guys,
Whenever I don't blog on a regular basis, I feel guilty but I immediately want to get back in the swing of blogging because it's one of the things I enjoy so much. It's a place where I can keep all the things that I love where no one else from school etc have to look at it, yet I still get to share it with random strangers.
I have been super busy getting reading for some mock exams but I guess you could say that I'm far from ready. I still want to make some time for blogging and making my blog grow so will try and fit both a tumblr Thursday in and a trend spot because I want to open my blog up f
or more fashion advice as well as wishlists.
If you have any suggestions please comment below xx

Mollie King- Style Icon?

It's been a long time since I have done style icon of the month. I usually pick style icons from celebrities but there has not been anyone who has really stood out to me lately. I have never really been a big fan of The Saturdays but I have actually been  quite enjoying the music that they have been putting out lately.
Mollie King, one of the members of the group, appears to have been in the papers more than the other members of her group and has recently been appointed as a new model for the store Next.
I don't know about you but I think this picture is amazing; I love the  shoes and playsuit I think that they work so well together. Not only that but she has put her own collection together which has some really good items in it.
I would never really expect her to be branded as a style icon but Mollie appears to be storming her way into the industry.

Lustful lists

As a student, I do not have the money to spend on loads of pretty nice things, after all, I have only five pounds to my name at the moment. That does not at all stop me from wanting all these pretty things that I find on the internet when having a little innocent look at what's available as I sigh wishing I was the daughter of a famous celebrity or something.
It has become somewhat of a ritual of my blog to gather up my wishes according to the season. Now that we are starting to gradually pack away our skirts, crop tops  and sandals and swapping them for knits, hats and coats, I thought this would be a chance to share with you my amazing finds that you may be able to purchase.
1 large coats- I found this coat on Topshop and I just LOVE the print
2/3 bags- from zara- Latley I have found that zara have the best bags, they look so great, classy and I especially think that the second one goes with the jacket really well... print on print?

Tumblr sunday

I am back with a couple of my favourite picks this week from tumblr, I finally found some that I really like to share with you.
Or the Coltrane for us... less rich types
 
To society!
 
 
mmm... my first love
 
On a more serious note I was think about starting a small  group thing on page link on my blog for those who need advice and comfort from the cruel world that is called bullying. Do you think this a good idea? This is a fashion blog but you're never too young to make a difference...

Blogging break

Hey guys!
Well I have been away from blogging for what seems like weeks due to a load of school work and the fact that I generally needed the break. I was just thinking about scrolling down my reading list and seeing all of these amazing bloggers who have come so far in a short space of time. Don't get me wrong I absolutely love my little slice of the internet but I feel like their are so many bloggers and they are all so much better then mine.
However, now I feel as if I have finally cracked it- those who do well in blogging don't focus on just their followers, they make their content the best as they can be and that's what makes them do well. Although I don't have as much resources as the average blogger, there is still so much you can do to improve as a blogger.
So more interesting and original content coming from me!

BLOGGERS I LOVE TAG

Sorry for being MIA but the new school year has started and I have also started to get bloggers block. I couldn't think of anything to write about and share with you but I thought that I might share with you my favourite bloggers.

Rhiannon Ashlee from FashionRocksMy Socks
I first found out about Rhiannon from YouTube whilst being bored and finding my way to her channel. Through then I found her blog which Had just started at the time and with my blog also just starting at the time I though "Woah this is so much better than mine" This has proven to be true as her blog has now grown winning awards and gaining new followers every. I really enjoy reading her blog as it has a sort of high street fashion feel to it


 
Stephanie Huang from High Stitched Voice
I first found out Stephanie's  blog through chictopia (I think). This was at a point when I had just started my blog and I was unaware of the fact that their was a whole circle of other people who were interested in the same stuff as me and are sharing their interests in the same way that I was. I really enjoy reading Stephanie's blog and enjoy her different sense of style.

Who are your favourite bloggers? If you are interested in joining in joining in the tag that I made up please just leave your blog links below!

STYLE STALK

This week has been one of those weeks when you just feel like nothing is going your way. I got some of my results back this week and for how much I revised they did not live up to my expectations. I see other people who didn't even revise or put not effort in succeed and get treated by their parents and it... pisses me off. SOMEBODY TELL WHAT UP WITH THAT?
One thing that always makes me feel better is a bit of retail therapy and if any of you have read my earlier blog post you will know that I give all my upmost respect to Sophia Amoroso creator of Nasty Gal. She has been something out of nothing and has done it well. When ever I go on the website to check out (stalk) clothes I can not afford as a student I am never disappointed to see what they have in store. Now they have there own shoe collection 'shoe cult' which I have to say is impressive. There isn't one pair of shoes I wouldn't wear. These Chelsea boots are definitely my favourite pair of shoes with there quirky take on the classic boot with the clear panel and the pointed edge. What's not to like?
Just talking about shoes makes me feel better, I can now get over the disappointment and failure that is my life.

New tunes- Tom Odell

Hi guys,
It feels like such a long time I have blogged.. maybe it's just bloggers block. I have been thinking did about doing a haul as I recently did a 'spot' of shopping. Until then, I just have to share Tom Odell's new song which I just really loved when I heard it yesterday.
The video is so cute, although I find it most distressing that I shall never look like that girl in the video... I'll get over it.

Rings

twisted ring- store twenty one
heart ring- Topshop
question mark ring- Topshop
 
I decided to take my first pictures for this blog showcasing my collection of rings. It is no secret that I am a fan of accessories because I think that they really put a piece together.
My favourite has got to be the question mark ring which I got from Topshop on the sales. I just think it's quite different from the others.
I took these standing in the big window from my bedroom risking my phone falling all the way to the ground just for these photos.

summer look series #5

I have created yet another outfit post on something that I think would look good to wear this summer. Leather is something I wouldn't usually wear especially not in summer but I think it's kind of growing on me. It's from Topshop I forgot to add!
The shoes are probably the best item for me and new look have really upped their game especially with shoes and bags.
I love the earrings which are also from Topshop, I think they bring the whole outfit together and complete the edgy look.

Summer look #4- White pepper dresses


Ever since I found out about the white pepper as a company whilst browsing the pages of chictopia, I have become quite a big fan of their clothes and collections.
Although designer's have started to bring out their Autumn collections for this year, I feel as if their is a slight sense of summer left in these items. I really love these items and feel like they really reflect the summer look.
1. Back open check midi dress: I love this dress! I feel as if it would be really great to wear on a dinner date but could also be dressed down.
2. polka dot dress: great for a dress down look this summer, would definitely wear to a picnic or to an outing with friends.
3. Angel dress: I love the checked pattern of this dress, a cute design... where would you wear this to?

I hope you are all enjoying the summer look series, a great way to build your wardrobe up, however the good weather seems to be slowly slipping away from us over in England, we shall have to wait and see...

summer look #3

I am so excited because finally the holidays have started for me! I can now spend time on my blog like I have wanted to do so badly this year but never got the chance.
I am carrying on with the summer look series because I'm getting some positive feedback from it which is always nice.
If you have been following this blog you will know that I am fast becoming a fan of shoes and can talk all day about how much I love them.

picture edited by me

I have now found my latest love this summer. The Coltrane cut out Jeffrey Campbell boot. I have never been much of a fan of the Lita or really found a pair of JC's which I really like but when I saw these, I definetley thought they were the one's.
Your probably thinking, boots in the summer? But, the fact that it as a large cut out makes it easier to wear in the hot weather that London has been so kind as to provide us with.
I would wear these with skater dresses, skater skirts, denim shorts or even more formal shorts to dress it up a little.
What do you think of the Coltrane cut out? Yay or nay?

Summer look #2

Right now in my life it seems that nothing is going well for me and it is extremely depressing. I have taken to my little slice in the internet to escape from it as it is the only thing that I am not completely failing at right now, except for finishing up the slice of cake beside me.
I find tat shopping really releases everything that make you feel depressed and makes it all better and when I saw these shoes whilst looking through the Topshop website, (I promise I don't just stare at Topshop clothes all day), I was reassured that my theory was correct. Although I feel a little bit saddened right now, I just love the velvet material and the block heel teamed together with the T bar making it that bit more summer appropriate. I can just imagine it teamed with a skater dress, skirt or a pair of skinnies. What would you team it with?
I shall leave you now with some songs which have been stuck inside my head as I await the summer holidays which draw closer to me by the day.

Summer look series

It's been way too long since I have done one of my 'series' which I know where a favourite on my blog. I haven't done one since winter when it was time to throw away all the old summer clothes and stoking up on jackets and jumpers. It's that time of the year again when we all stock up new clothes ready to face the sun which is finally coming out.
I have had a stroll on the topshop website which is one my favourite things to do and found some staple items to put together for a new summer wardrobe.
Item 1: shorts: It's definitely that time of the year when everyone wants to show off a bit of leg and I love the cute pattern on these shorts. Although they do look a bit like they should be for bed time, I think it look fun and quirky. It's high waist line gives it a sort of smart look as well.
Item 2: crop cami: I love this top, I love this light violet colour and the floaty look of it, which is great for a hot summer's day. The colours also go well with the shorts and together they make a great 'smart casual look'
Item 3: Sandals: I really love these sandals! The two pastel colours look so great together and this mint green like colour is fast becoming my favourite colour. I have seen some really cool sandals out and about and I love this sort of old style look it has.
Item 4: Midi rings: I really love the look of midi rings and the whole idea of finding more place son our fingers to fit jewellery. The studs on the second ring are so cute and kind of change up the girly summer like look.

What do you think of the outfit? My favourite piece has got to be the sandals because you can change them up with almost everything during the summer season.

In love with...

 Hey guys,
I am finally free from exams and the stress, however I am really hoping that I do not fail my maths test which I do not think went too well.
It's nice to finally get settled down back into blogging and what better way than to start of talking about this necklace. I borrowed it from my sister and I have no idea where she got it from and I think that it looks really cool. I do not have a picture of it in big, however, I love the details with the five gems and the heaviness of it. I wore it to a wedding with some really nice short and shirt which I really loved and I though they worked really well together. What do you think?


I am also doing a tumblr post this week I say been recently active on tumblr in between breaks and have a lot of cool pictures that I would like to show you. 
Also Google reader is leaving us! I do to want to loose all my followers and neither would I like to loose all the blogs I follow so I have transferred them through bloglovin' and it's really easy you can do the same too. Please follow me via bloglovin' if you like what you see.

sound of music

Being a student is hectic, you never get enough time to do extra activities, sometimes whilst completing task, I am able to squeeze in a couple of songs to listen to which is why I have more songs  to show you than fashion lately.
I can't wait for the summer holidays in which I can relax and bring all my focus on the blog.
I am also thinking of doing ore tumblr post so if you're interested comment below.

To this day project

Hello guys!
I'm not quite sure how long I have been missing in action but I can only blame it on the struggles that come with going to school, by that I mean revising, keeping up with work etc. However, now my exams are finished (for now), I am all yours! Though I don't think I was very successful
Speaking of troubles in school I was thinking about the struggles that a lot of children face when going to school- bullying. Everyone knows that bullying goes on in schools yet I  feel that no one does anything about it. no one really understands what it's like to be bullied and it's easy just to say, 'stand up to the bully!', but I'm sure if you were in the same situation you would not feel the same way.
A few months ago I came across the video on youtube and I just loved it. It sums up all the things about bullying, the different types and the after affects  and I think that everyone should watch this video.
This man is an amazing poet and I really love a lot of his work (and his voice!)
If you would like to follow Shane Koyczan on twitter it's @Koyczan.
This is my 50th blog post as well which I am pretty excited about!

Blogger Style Icon

Miley Cyrus is probably most well known for her role as Hannah Montannah and her career as a singer. No matter how hard she may try to forget her teenage days wearing flares, scarves and sequin tops; I shall never forget the show which centred my childhood.
However,as Miley has grown up and swapped her blond wig for a short Mahican, she has grown into a Style Icon too.
I love the clothes that she wears with a sort of rock-chick style to them.
What do you think of Miley's fashion?

Miley suits shorts, croptops, midi skirts and studs well!
do you like the new feature, let me know in the comments! Leave your blog links below!

Maxi Dress- YAY or NAY?

Hello guys!,
It feels like such a long time since I've talked about fashion on here, which defeats the whole object of this blog.
As I was shifting around the TopShop website (as you do) I spotted this maxi dress and I didn't know if I liked it or not.
It's quite long but I think that the pattern works well together. What do you think, would you go for it?

Hidden blogger

Hi guys!,

Any good advice?

Sometimes we need to relax

Hey guys!
I thought I'd do a quick blog post in my current 'stressy' state.
Whenever I have work to complete and just can't seem to get the knack of it, it make me feel down in the dumps so instead I did a few of my favourite things.
1. Blogging:
A great way to ramble on to no one in particular and clear your head at the same time!
2. Youtube:
Listening to music whilst blogging is definitely the way forward people!
3. A sweet cup of tea:
There is certainly something in (possibly the caffeine) which can lift any spirit

... This is basically what I'm doing now.
You should try it too!

What are your favourites.

Your Easter break


Happy Easter everyone!
Hopefully, those of you how are on Easter break are enjoying it to the fullest, but what I find is that I get pretty bored in the holidays quickly.
However, I have come up with a list of things to do this holiday which will be sure to keep me busy:
  1. have a bath: You are sure to feel relaxed and ready for a new term, once you have had a nice bath. Any advice on what to feel it with?
  2. Read a good book: The perks of being a wall flower is something I have wanted to read for a while now, go to your local library to give you some peace and quiet whilst you do so. What is your favourite read?
  3. Do some crafts: I am always seeing lots of blogs doing some crafts and DIY projects and I have always loved the decorating of old glass cases to decorate your room or personal space with
  4. Spring clean: Having a clear out always puts my mood up even though the process doesn't do the same thing! it's all worth it in end
  5. This is something that is not on my list, but relax and listen to some music- you may not get the time to just sit around and relax all the time so take advantage
What is your favourite thing to do when on a break?
please leave your comments and blog links below

tumblr photos #1

John green quote/ lovely water colour illustration/callum watters hot choclate
/feather tattoo/lucky charms
 
Happy Thursday readers, I am not usually one to blog two days in a week but I think that adding some new content into my blog will encourage me to do so.
I have recently joined tumblr, and after getting over my 'newbie confusion' started to enjoy it quite a lot. I quite like photography, hand written notes of inspiration and illustration which are three things you get a lot on tumblr.
These are my favourites from this week and will try as much as I can to show you my favourite tumblr findings each week. 
Which one is your favourite?

wednesday wishes

I have realised that I have done little fashion content in my blog recently and it is safe to say that I should probably get down to doing so. I quite like varying the content in my blog to go with the name of the blog- if only I wasn't that young when I came up with the name, it  wouldn't be so embarrassing now...
Seeing as it's Wednesday, a day which always gets me down as we a neither at the beginning or end of the week; I thought I'd do a Wednesday wish list and will probably do this if people like it.
The sun should be emerging from it's hiding place, yet is refusing to so all I can do is to dream of it and the clothes that come with it which i love these shorts. Which is your favourite?

Shoes Shoes! - New Look Wishes

Right now my latest obsession has to be shoes, although not everything that is up there is quite my cup of tea,  I like to make sure that there is something for everybody. The military boots go well with a leather jacket, which is quite in right now. Also the boots above would fit right in with the monochrome trend. I picked out the leopard print cowboy boot as it reminded me of the ever so popular Jefferey Campbell's that I have been seeing around. And last but not least, the pair of suede flats... everyone needs a pair of super comfy yet stylish flats?
My favourite has to be the studded boots... What's yours?

Music is the energy

Hi guys!,
How has your week been? For me it's been a week of laziness so much that I couldn't even be bothered to get up and watch a movie. Is it only me who gets the feeling of not wanting to do absolutely anything? However, I always have time to listen to music (if the headphones are near to my bed) and lately I can't help humming along to this particular tune. Quite sorrowful I know, but you always need a song that you can list to whilst doing some work.
Enjoy!

I'm still accepting advertisment for the side of my blog as it's looking a bit bare if you have your own button that would be great!

Spring its near!


Hi guys!,
When I think of the good weather to come, I almost jump in happiness as I may be one of the few people who sees no good in snow. I'm also pretty excited for this LFW... are you?
Spring is the perfect weather when we can show of our new clothes without a jacket on top of it, making you feel like you effort was no t worth it. (I always seem to blog about the weather)
I have had a bit of a thing for t-shirts now, so I immediately loved this Asos acid wash tee, with simple details on the side.
If your looking for a top that will look good when going somewhere special, this Topshop crop will ook great and you will only need a little jewellery because of the neck detail.
Number 3 is great for a lazy day or if you want to wear your favourite tee but are feeling a bit chilly, you could wear this on the bottom
And to get into the real spring mood, whip out this floral sleeveless, I quite like the longer back as well!
Which one is your favourite?

Also, if you would like to advertise your blog on here, I accept buttons!... just email me!

The Top look

*nice little quote for you all x
Hey all!
Its about time that I posted this blog post; it's entirely TopShop! The more I try to tear myself away from TopShop the closer I get to it. I've put together some of my favourite items which I think are hard not to love! I really love the boots and I think the bralet, jumper and burgundy colour jeans go spectacular together.
I've never seen anyone sport a bowling bag before but this could be a first! And of-course no one can beat a good pair of sunnies especially if your going accessory naked.
What's your favourite item from this outfit? Mine is definitely the boots (straight on my wishlist.) What else would you style this with? I'd go with a bowler hat.

Everchanging trends

The annoying thing about fashion is also the best things about fashion- it's always changing. We always feel the need to follow. Although individual style is soething I find important, you cant beat a little trend following. I have done some research into 2013 predicted trends and I found that some people have predicted the same sort of things.



It appears the vintage sport look is really coming through this year! The SS collections will be great!
I will be putting some outfit posts up soon- a bit of a problem with images!

winter bag pics







Happy new year to everyone! As this blog is starting to take a winter theme to it I have decided to put my top 3 bag choices all appropriate for this winter

The messenger bag is perfect for a casual day out and definitely not get completely soaked in the rain or melting snow.
The satchel is spacious and the floral print is a great trend to plat around with.
If you are one to party, the clutch will be the perfect accessory with the perfect dress

My personal favourite is the satchel; I love the tassel's, they give great detail! What's yours?
