Yay! At last, another sunny day outfit post! Well this ones kind of more about the accessories I was sent some lovely stuff this week by the lovely Molly Bishop of anomalymolly.co.uk and she is one heck of a talented lady! I'd been lusting after her gorgeous flower crowns for some time, this beautiful peachy shade is my particular fave as its just such a me colour and at £8 they are an amazing bargain, to receive something this lovely and handmade. Also her 'Love Boobs' tees are just so so cute! They are total limited editions and made with beautifully soft American Apparel tees so for £13 again I think this is a total steal. She sent me lots of other gorgeous bits and bobs, you may have seen the blue collar clips on my Instagram earlier this week as I wore them with my new Blue Polka Dot Topshop shirt and they just looked the cutest together!
Anyway if you like the look of these beautiful products you should definitely get yourself over to her website and have a mooch!

A quick little outfit post as i've been dying to wear this bomber jacket since I brought it last week. I love love the bright floral pattern and the really nice silky fabric. I haven't been brave enough to wear the whole outfit yet though, I think my neighbours already think i'm bonkers for standing next to various walls, in various outfits doing various poses haha! Also I had a near death experience when taking these photos as a frog jumped out at me and i'm really scared of them for some reason even though I think they're kind of cute! Anyway the rest of the outfit is just a basic black tee from Topshop that's just super oversized and it was only £14. Fishnet tights and my eBay cycling shorts. I also wore gold jewellery which is something you don't see me doing very often. Also i'm wearing my Topshop Astrix boots which i've not had anywhere near enough wear from yet as I love them so much but I just don't very often wear heels. I know they're quite a small heel for most people but they still kinda scare me as at 5ft 11 I kinda live in flats.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

I have treated myself a little this week as you can see. I don't buy new clothes every week I promise. But when this darling polka dot shirt came into work at the beginning of the week I just couldn't resist. At only £29 from Topshop I thought it was a steal as its something that I know i'll get so much wear from.
The second and third purchases were a little more risky but it was love at first sight and I just couldn't put them back. The floral bomber I know I will wear as I just seem to be into buying bombers at the moment and again was a pretty baragainous price of £22.75! The trousers again i'm pretty sure I'll get my wear from as I am a lady who loves a printed trouser! I am going to be rocking the outfit as a co-ord on the blog at some point later this week. Oh and the trousers were £16.75. Don't you just love Forever 21 and there oh so random pricing of things.
Lastly my lovely gradient cats eye sunnies. Cats eye are a must for me for sunglasses and my actual glasses are this shape too, I just love the style. These were a total steal at £4.90, I had to have them!
So what are we thinking to the co-ord, should I rock it as an outfit or just keep it as separates?

I like the clashing monochrome prints in this outfit and of course my lovely new fluffy pink angora jumper which is just soooo soft!
The jumper is from the old Lana Del Rey collection for H&M which sold out when I wanted it at the time but I have since won it on eBay for £7, amazing! The polka dot shirt is actually Primark, Topshop do a nearly identical one but this was only £12 and the skirt is from Motel Rocks which is actually part of a two piece with a matching little crop top which I wear when i'm feeling brave enough.
You can see from these pictures that my hair still isn't the 'perfect' ice white blonde that I want it yet but going from blue to blonde is quite a big undertaking so it's being done in stages. It's not bad at the moment yet and i'm really enjoying having blonde hair again.
Hope you all have a lovely Sunday.

So like most girls I am a bit make up and beauty obsessed so you can definitely expect to see that sort of post on here from time to time. My make up bag has needed re-stocking for some time but I couldn't face the scary trip to the Mac counter where I'd have to shell out £££'s so I decided to do something I don't normally and do and purchase some 'drugstore' or high street make up bits.
Firstly I decided to invest in a new foundation brush as my friend Becky saw my current one earlier and said "What's wrong with your foundation brush Charles!? Has it got Alopecia!?" Definitely time to invest and these new Topshop brushes look great. This is one of those lovely short, chubby stippling brushes. I also got a gel liner brush that i'm deciding to use as a lip brush instead, looks too fat to be a good liner brush but looks perfect as a lip brush. Then I got Bourjois Volume Clubbing Mascara in Ultra Black. Loreal Superliner in Black Crystals. Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer and Rimmel Stay Matte powder. A couple of the items were recommendations from other people so I hope they're good! Anyway I won't go into detail too much about the other items as I will be trying them over the nest few weeks and reviewing them properly.

So the title of this post is me just generally mourning over the fact that summer has been and gone in the blink of an eye, that's it, it's over. Now surely you would hope that i'm just being majorly sarcastic here, I hope that turns out to be the case. The sun was sooo good I want more of it. Even though I worked the majority of the bank holiday weekend and was practically dying inside a billion degree shop (I don't like to exaggerate, at all!) Everything is just so much better when the sun is shiiining!
Anyway a little bit about the outfit I wore today. I got this tshirt from ASOS and it came with this maxi beaded slip underneath it which is kinda cool but I do enjoy it as just a plain jersey number. The cycling shorts I purchased from eBay just the other day, £7.99 total barg! And lastly my trusted Aggy's, which I do not wear anywhere near enough as they are soooo beautiful but just soooo painful! A lot of people asked me if I got these in the sale but no, I was one of the crazies that trecked to London on the day of the launch last summer just to get me a pair of these beauties. I will definitely start giving them the wear they deserve, it doesnt matter about scarred ankles does it really!?
So I hope another one of my rambly posts hasn't bored you to tears and that you'll be back again for more soon!

So this is the outfit that I wore for my interview on Friday. The interview was for a promotion at work so fingers tightly crossed that I get it! As I work for Topshop I can pretty much dress how I like but I did go for a slightly smarter look for the interview. The Blouse is current Topshop and i'm actually in love with it and the check trousers are vintage, they cost me about 20p. The shoes are new too. They're called Astrix and they come in a few colours, I kinda want the yellow version of these too as i've just got a bit of a thing for yellow at the moment. And the sun is out again today, hurray!

I feel like this is a super summery post as as the title suggests I'm buying what are the beginnings of my summer wardrobe right now. You see it's definitely starting to get warmer and I you can see from my last two posts i've been rather akin to hiding myself away in all black for most of the winter and now it's time to get some colour! Unsurprisingly all of these items are from Topshop! I do shop in other shops honest but it's just that we have so much great stuff in at the moment. I'm particularly obsessed with yellow at the moment as you can see. I have an appointment at the hairdressers tomorrow and after that I should be white blonde, bye bye crazy colours! So I can just see the yellow looking great with blonde hair! I'm not too sure whether i'm keeping the two piece outfit or the check/polka dot skirt as I already have a similar yellow skirt but all the others are definites. Expect to see them featured in some outfit posts over the coming week or so. Enjoy your weekend lovelies and make the most of the sunny sunshine!!!

Thinking of titles is pretty tricky isn't it! I've gone with this one as the song has just been stuck inside my head all day long and it's just a pretty awesome song!
Wednesday is my favorite day of the week, mainly as it's my day off and my main day for seeing family. I see a lot of them as I moved back much closer to home recently which I love but I still go out of my way every Wednesday to spend some extra lovely time with them all. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you'll probably know I have a One year old niece called Daisy whom I absolutely adore, she just means the world to me! So that's what I've mainly been up to today and also having lots of fun in the sun! It's been so warm I managed to nap on the blanket in my Mom & Dad's garden soaking up the rays!
Anyway a bit about my outfit. Sorry it's monochrome again, I do have a bit of a thing for black and white but I also wear colour from time to time, honest! So I got these dungarees in the post a couple of days ago, they were a vintage ebay find. Vintage dungarees are just so much better don't you think!? I much prefer the wash and the fit to any of the new ones in the shops. The top underneath is from Topshop which you can still currently get. I also had my legs out for the first half of these photos and then when I reviewed them I remembered why I never get my legs out! Thank god you never had to see them! Also wearing my staple footwear, creepers! These triple sole beasts are a bit of a killer though just because they are soooo heavy!
I've just realised I have a real tendancy to ramble on. Sowwwiiiii! Ahaha.
Let me know what you guys think of my posts so far pretty please! I'm so new!
