This fear's got a hold on me

Recently I have received a few tags, the first from the lovely Holly at Fawned and the second an award from Phoebe at Cross Your Fingers. Thank you so much to both of you! They both have beautiful blogs, you should have a look! I think I am required to list some things, but to be honest I don't really have much to say other than the fact I'm going to Thailand in one week! Have some pretty pictures instead (:

Most of these are just old ones that have been on my memory stick for ages so I'm sorry I don't know where they're from. Now I'm going to tag Emma, Lottie and Becca! x

P.S. Both Aindrea at Fashionista du Jour and Hannah at London Rose are holding competitions at the moment, enter and you could win a £25 or £50 Topshop voucher!

What are you doing Sunday baby?

I just saw this video on nmeTV and had to post it, I love Lightspeed Champion so much! I saw him (with Alexa Chung actually...) at T4 on the Beach two years ago and have loved him ever since. Just look at those hats! I guess this song is quite different from his older stuff, much more varied in terms of instruments and just generally poppier but I'm still quite excited about his new album. It's on my list of pre-orders now, along with Marina and the Diamonds, Los Campesinos! and Laura Marling

Anyways, before I pop off to bed I just wanted to let you know after I wrote my last post, the lovely people at sent me a £40 Topshop giftcard! Now I just need to decide what to spend it on, there's been so much lovely spring stock in recently no? I am going into Plymouth on Saturday though so I'm pretty sure I'll have spent it by then haha! Have a lovely rest of week everyone! x

Nothing you can say that can't be sung

How many of you use discount codes when shopping? Vouchercodes has great online codes for stores like ASOS, MyWardrobe, and Liberty, as well as printable vouchers for restaurants like Pizza Express, so you can afford to shop and eat out! At the moment they are offering an amazing 30% off at Gap, as well as other discounts at All Saints and Oasis.The best thing is that the site is completely free and really easy to use - what could be simpler?
I've got a lot of things to look forward to this year (like Thailand and America!) but that also means I'll be needing to save lots of money when updating my wardrobe. Here are my top five picks for 2010, all under £40.
Lace has already proven to be big this winter, and I predict the trend will continue this spring, in lighter, softer shades of pink and cream. I love this dress so much, it's perfectly girly and looks just like Alexa's!
Skater dresses + florals = that's going to be a winner right? I saw someone wearing this dress on lookbook, then looked it up to find it was only £25, so I think it's my favourite I've seen yet!

I've always been a fan of florals and I think these leggings would look great with everything, from bright t-shirts and blazers to simple black bodycon, so I think they're pretty good for £20! Only problem is which colour to choose?
Breton tops are a great basic to have in your wardrobe and are always chic, if you haven't got one already I suggest you move this to top of your list!
Tights are probably the easiest way to update your look and these are available in loads of crazy cool designs elsewhere on the internet as well, all at a bargain price. Plus THEY'RE BY HENRY HOLLAND!
I hope you enjoyed this post and visit the voucher codes website! x
