Put on my radiation suit and slip away

How was your Christmas? Mine was really good, and I got loads of lovely presents, including jeans and a top from Topshop, a gorgeous black leather bag from Urban Outfitters, various bits and bobs for Thailand, Benefit makeup, a few really good albums (which I'll probably post about soon!) and the pink headphones I posted about before (:

Today with some of my money I hit the sales! I have to say I do rather like the idea of sales, though when it comes to it I always fail and end up going back to the newer expensive stock haha! I got a few little things in Accessorize, some shoes in New Look and this in Topshop...

Crop Top, £16

Skirt, £30 (It looks quite boring here but it's actually really nice!)

I also tried on this dress after gazing at it on the website a good few times, but it didn't fit properly. I was pretty upset actually as it's so lovely and would be perfect for Thailand! Oh well, more summer stuff will come out soon, and hopefully I should be able to get a job at some point!

I'm going to spend New Year in Cornwall with my boyfriend and some friends which I'm quite looking forward to, what are you up to? Happy New Year everyone! x

All crop tops and testosterone passion

Just an outfit from a few days ago. I love these tights so much! Sorry about the strange smile. And sorry about the lazy mirror picture. One of these days I might actually get a tripod.

Dress and belt - Primark, cardigan - H&M, heart tights - Topshop.

My boyfriend bought me Hold On Now, Youngster... by Los Campesinos! as part of my Christmas present and I've been listening to it solidly for the last few days. Even if you don't like the band, you've got to say they have some amazing lyrics.

And I always get confused, because in supermarkets they turn the lights off when they want you to leave, but in discos they turn them on, and it's always sad to go, but it's never that sad, because there's only certain places you're guaranteed of getting a hug when you go, and on the way home, it seems like a good idea to go paddle in the fountain, and that's because it IS a good idea, and it's like we're all human, and the state of nature, we're undeveloped, we're ignorant, we're stupid, but we're happy.

This may well be my last post for a while, so Merry Christmas everyone! x

Planes and trains and cars

my christmas wishlist

Here's my Christmas wishlist... lots of clothes from Topshop and Urban Outfitters, Panasonic RP-HTX7 headphones in pink, cute little necklaces, a few new-ish albums, the Nylon Street book, Marc Jacobs Lola, pretty underwear, Polaroid film and some new glasses. I can only hope, haha. What's on your wishlist this year?

It's my last day of school tomorrow, I'm so excited! And only eight sleeps to go after tonight! x

House made of paper

A few weeks ago I discovered this great site, Fashion Confidential, and I was just wondering if any of you had heard of it before?

It sells designer clothing, through stores like Matches and Net-a-Porter, so you can easily browse a massive selection of clothes, shoes and bags. There is literally hundreds of designers to choose from, including Burberry, Balmain, Chloe, Marc Jacobs and Vivienne Westwood to name but a few.

However what makes it different is that there's so much more than shopping. This site doesn't just sell, but it helps you find ideas and great bargains both on the web and on the high street. The boutique directory is full of old favourites, as well as great new stores, and the Bargain Hunter section is genius. It has details of all the best designer sample sales and a calendar showing all the dates. It also picks out the best individual items from websites like The Outnet, Matches Style Steals and Browns Labels for Less.

The Style Report section is essentially a blog of the site, full of beautiful photos and celebrity inspiration, I'm already addicted! Also one of the editorial features at the moment is an interview with the designers from Preen, which I loved reading, and there's also a little list of blogs I'm sure you'll love if you don't already know them!

However my favourite part of the website is definitely the new magazine. Although I love savouring a good issue of Vogue, I think online magazines, or e-zines, are the future and this one is great. It contains loads of catwalk photos, style tips, designer interviews and the hottest new pieces all linked to stores where you can buy them. This month's issue is packed full of great Christmas gifts and outfit ideas - if only I could afford some of it!

I hope you enjoyed this post - now click here to visit Fashion Confidential!

Coming towards her, stuck still no turning back

Sorry it's been a while, school has been really hectic these last few weeks. However I have had some amazing weekends: I've been to Bristol and Oxford and seen Lily Allen! Over a hundred followers now too, be back soon people! x
