You came on your own, that's how you'll leave

Bag - Zatchels (Please excuse the hand and the chipped nails...!)
I was a bit of a bad blogger and hid this bag away for a good few months after I got it.. I snagged it in  the Zatchels sale they had a while ago and of course I had to get my initials on them! I did have to wait a while to receive it but with them all being handmade and due to the sale, I did expect it. 
When I did receive it I was very pleased with it, it's a beautiful pastel blue colour and now I'm going through a phase of wearing black it brings a little bit of colour to my outfits. It's beautiful quality and I've been after one for so long that I'm glad I took the plunge, so much so I now need another one.

There was no doubt about which side I was on

Crop top & Shoes - Topshop / Skirt - Miss Selfridge 
This skirt was something I was going to pick up agessssss ago (at full price) but I just wasn't quite sure about it and put it back on the rail, but I found it a few weeks ago in Miss Selfridge's sale for a measly £7 and decided against my judgement. What put me off was the thought of 'what will I wear it with?' and to be honest I'm still struggling now, nothing I own seems to suit and this top was the only one I could find that I didn't immediately think 'ew, no Rebecca' anyone give me any ideas how to style it as I don't really want to let go of it now.

I'm adding loads more things to my eBay, having a huge clearout and I'll be adding more as the week goes on

Colour my life with the chaos of trouble

Dress - Ever Ours / Shoes - Primark / Belt - Stolen from another dress
This dress is very similar to one currently on Dahlias website, which I couldn't justify (however pretty it is) spending £49 on and is currently out of stock anyway. So when I saw it on Ever Ours I had to snap it up, I actually ordered the black sleeves as the grey was out of stock but then I received the grey version! Sometimes these things do work out in your favour! 
If anyone's interested I'm also selling a few bits on eBay here

You, my everything

Dress - ASOS via eBay / Shoes - Topshop
You know those moments when you're really glad you didn't buy something (which don't really occur that often) well I had one of them when I stumbled upon this dress on eBay. I very nearly forked out £45 for this dress originally and do you know how much I paid for it? £12, guys. I am one happy eBayer (or at least I was when the dress was eventually posted, a whole 11 days later, grrr) and I'm back on that bandwagon, why bother paying full whack for something when I can buy the same item someone has worn a couple of times at a fraction of the price?!  You can always find similar items if you can't find exactly what you want as well. You guys found any eBay gems recently?

On a side note, we're currently looking after some rats, Cece and Jinxy, although my house mate reckons they're both boys... They're really friendly and super cute, but now I'm adamant I'm allergic to them as I'm sat here sneezing with an awful runny nose, let's hope not because after they go back to their owner I really want one myself!

What's on my wishlist?


I would usually try and not do two of these posts in a row but if you've already seen Zara's new A/W collection then you know why I'm so excited, these are all picks from the TRF range

1. This is THE perfect transitional jacket, I literally need it in my life, anything grey or burgundy I flock too like a moth to a flame when autumn draws near
2. How 'clueless' is this dress? I think my style has gone full circle and I'm being drawn towards anything with a collar
3. I don't even need any words for this top, really, timeless.
4. These are very similar to a pair Topshop had in last winter, but these are a little higher and a little more grown up
5. More checks with a black veiled twist, simple yet vampy

What's on my wishlist?


1. Just to satisfy my leopard print habit, and seeing as I don't own a leopard print cardi also...
2. I love overalls/dungarees but they're a little samey and everyone and their dog owes a pair but these (black and cord, winning team) are a little twist on the norm
3. I really need some new tops but I'm so fussy about them, this is simple and would go with everything, I love them paired with leather shorts as above
4. Myself and my boyfriend have decided to take a holiday next year and I think this would make a good casual day dress or a cover up for the beach, nice and floaty

I should be over all the butterflies

Cardigan - Urban Outfitters / Top - Topshop / Shorts - H&M / Boots - New Look
By the looks of my recent posts you'd think I haven't taken actually taken these boots off and you'd be right. They just go with everything and the little phase I'm going through of everything I buy needing to be black.
I just rediscovered this top at my parents house shoved in a bookcase of all places, I had plans to tie-dye it but I think I'll leave it be as it work's well as a waistcoat if you unbutton it.
I'm having a movie night as the boyfriends at work till late and I have to be up early in the morning, hopefully everything goes okay tomorrow I am rather more nervous than I probably should be but, I'm a worrier so I'm putting the nerves down to that!

Take me away to some place real

Dress - Topshop / Boots- New Look
So today went exactly as I expected it too, unfortunately, so it means I'm having surgery this Friday. My boss has been really understanding and let me have the next week off work rather than just the two days suggested, so I'm planning lots of things to do to pass the time whilst I'm off!

I got this dress a good few months ago now, when the boyfriend and myself went down to London, I own so much leopard print but I thought I could get away with buying this as it's green and a larger to print (the excuses we make!) but also as it's a midi dress it's very easy to turn into a shorter dress just by turning it up. I find sometimes that either I can't find shoes to go with the dress when at mid length or just don't want the restriction, so that's easily solved by turning it up.

Dead in the water

Dress - ASOS / Shoes - New Look / Socks & Necklace - Topshop
Just a quick one this evening, my mood isn't the greatest right now, being in mental and physical pain for a whole week is not making me feel my best to say the least.
So baggy t-shirt dresses and clompy boots are the answer for now, I'll probably keep myself to myself until the weekend is near, when hopefully I'll be feeling much better!

Weekly Want

I'm resurrecting the 'Weekly Want'... and here I present you with these babies, it was love at first sight and a huge hint to my boyfriend *you've only got a month and a half to buy me a gift* mwahaha. I haven't really had a good look on Choies website before but I found myself wanting to make a huge wishlist. I did sneakily order this amazing unicorn bag too which I can't want to use!

We're gonna let it burn

Top & Bag - Topshop / Shorts - Urban Outfitters / Shoes - New Look / Necklace - Handmade by me

This past month for me has been full of highs and lows. Hopefully the lows are on their way out but next week is going to be another tough one.

Onwards and upwards, here's something I wore just to go out for dinner (there's a nando's a 5 minute walk from my house which is lethal) I'm so happy I picked these boots up online, no they're not leather and no they're not Jeffrey Campbells but I still love them and they're pretty damn comfortable.

If anyones got any tips for helping my dried out hair I'd really appreciate it, it's pretty dead from all the bleaching I put it through this last year!
