Want. So. Bad.


I know I have all-ready done a post with a Tiffany & Co necklace this week but I couldn’t help myself. I’ve wanted this necklace for a while now, mostly because of the classic “Return to Tiffany” heart tag pendant and the heart pendant with the Tiffany blue enamel finish. This necklace is just so pretty and so simple and what makes it better is that it is affordable.

Pick of the week.


My pick of the week is this absolutely stunning embellished dress. The flowers are gorgeous and I can’t stop staring at them. It’s also very Taylor Swift.

Accessories from H&M.


I had a little shopping trip today and was absolutely amazed by some of the accessories in H&M. I purchased the plaited bracelet and the wing ring, and I intend on purchasing the rest. Especially the boots! Ah! They are gorgeous.What amazes me the most are the prices. Everything above is more than affordable. Also, the plaited bracelet, boots and shoulder bags are all available in different colours. If you haven’t paid a visit to H&M in a while, I think its time to now!

Hard To Get.

I enjoy window shopping online, especially with items that a student like me will not afford. Looking at expensive clothing and accessories makes me more motivated to be successful in my life so that I can afford them. If ever I am successful in life, and I have made big bucks, then I can guarantee you that my first purchase would be a Mulberry bag. I have a love for them, its unexplainable. They are stunning and simple and beautiful. This one is special because it has the Mulberry tree on it. Mulberry for some strange reason have stopped putting the tree’s on their products as frequently as they used to. I also love the plaited strap, it makes the bag a bit different from the others.
American Vintage is a brand that is more affordable, but not at the moment. They specialise in knitwear and they do it well. This cable know cardigan is gorgeous.
Last but most definitely not least, the Tiffany & Co necklace in rose gold. It’s just perfect in every single way. I love rose gold, it makes jewellery romantic and sweet.

Daria Hobo – Mulberry - £775.00
W's Wool cardigan - American Vintage - £127.00
Return to Tiffany Heart Tag Necklace - Tiffany & Co - £1,360.00


If I had to buy one item right now it would be…

one thing
This dress is, stunning. It is simple, it is understated and it is elegant. Dot prints are so on trend right now. I prefer the bigger prints instead of the tiny dots which quite frankly, make my eyes go weird. The vintage collar and puffy sleeves make the dress a bit more interesting, and the elasticated waistline is not only flattering but almost makes it look like a shirt tucked into a skirt. You could have endless wear out of this dress because so much would go with it. You could pair a denim jacket with some boots for a casual grunge look, or put a soft pink cardigan on with some pale pumps for more of a vintage look. To dress up, put with nude or black pumps and a matching skinny belt. You could get so many different looks and styles from this one dress. I think it is something worth investing in.

Cream Spot Shirt Dress – Topshop - £30.00


Totes cool.

totes  cool
So I don’t know about the rest of the UK, but in Wales, from October 1st all retailers will be charging five pence per bag. McDonalds, Next, Topshop, Zara, everywhere. At first I was cool with it, I though that five pence is fine, but then I thought about how many bags I use when I go food or clothes shopping. All of those five pence's will add up, so we need to be carrying our own little bags around with us to save us some money and do our little bit to help the environment. I intend on purchasing all three of these bags as they are so amazing but the moustache bag is definitely my favourite!

I Moustache You A Question Bag - - £7.60
Anchors Away Sailor Bag - - £10.20
Letter Bag (Available in all letters) - - £12.00

super sweet bikinis

So it's official, the clocks went forward two nights ago and the days are getting brighter and longer; summers coming guys! It's time to get a super sweet bikini ready for the beach! I have picked a few of my favorites.

First of all my favorite one, the pink floral print bikini. Ah, everything about it is sweet and ditsy and screams summer. 
Second is a traditional gingham print - to me, this is a "pin-up girl" bikini. It's so retro and the pale blue is stunning. I also like the structured top and classic pant. 
The next bikini is quite unusual. It's very boho chic. I like that the top and pant don't match, makes it unique.
I love the bandana print on the last bikini. Again it's unusual and unique but gorgeous and summery at the same time.

Blue Gingham Seersucker Bikini - Topshop - £30.00
Ditsy Floral Bikini - Miss Selfridge - £25.00
Fantasy Mosaic Print Bikini - Warehouse - £14.00
Bandana Print Bikini - Miss Selfridge - £25.00


trend spotter: floral denim

A trend that I have been seeing a lot of lately is denim with a sweet, girly floral print. Denim is all the craze at the moment - between jeans, shorts, jackets and waistcoats; it's everywhere. It's nice to see a little twist, something a bit different than plain or distressed denim. Instead of denim having a cool or grungy look, it's a little more feminine with the floral print which allows you to wear edgy accessories and not look too over the top.

The floral play-suit pictured is my favorite piece from the selection. The print is very romantic with all of the roses and its sweet and ditsy at the same time. You could wear this to so many places and/or occasions. You could put it with a trilby hat and some sandals for the beach, or with a blazer and a pair of ankle boots for a more edgy looks. You could also put a lot of accessories with this.
Next is a denim swing dress with a floral lace detail on the chest with the gold buttons. This dress is perfect for casual day wear and would look stunning with a pair of tan boots. 
There  is then a floral tee. This isn't a denim tee but it has the denim look. The ditsy pattern is gorgeous and this would go really well with a pair of denim shorts and flip-flops for the beach. 
This is the cutest purse I have seen in a while and unlike all the other pieces, this is a dark denim which makes the floral print stand out and gives it a bit of a vintage look.
