My favorite dress from the Peter Pilotto Resort 2012 Collection, Sorry i disappeared for ages, but now I'm back at uni i have my scanner working.

Thursday, 11 August 2011

Yesterday was my day off, and as well as going for coffee with several friends who i really needed a catch up with i sketched a few designs for a simple dress i want to make, i also spent hours browsing blogs and online stores and this Acne jumper is definitely on my wish list now. My thoughts go out to all the people in these awful riots, sometimes I'm glad i live in the middle of the countryside.

As promised, if slightly late this is my new Zara purchase, I'm a fan of blazers, but this studio borelo jacket is my new favorite, i can't wait to wear it and i think it will become a favorite as it can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion, i love the leather look pockets.

Thursday, 4 August 2011

Just a sneak peak at my delivery which arrived this evening, i will post pictures of it tomorrow but all i can say is that it is beautiful. My favorite thing about purchasing things online is the unwrapping, when i was younger i used to take ages unwrapping presents, carefully pealing off each piece of tape, to be honest i still do to this day.

I'm sorry about the lack of posting, I've been working constantly since last Wednesday i get home from work and all i can manage is to fall asleep, however i thought I'd fit in a quick post this morning- Vogue arrived yesterday i love how the September issues are always SOOO huge, I'm just flicking through it quickly with my morning coffee but there is so much i wish i owned. I  will post a better post tomorrow on my day off.

I am such a huge fan of Mulberry and i will definetely post more about my love for the brand one day soon however since this is just a quick post i just wanted to say i love the new Carter bag, expecially this Midnight croc nappa leather one, sooo beautiful.

Carboot sales, Theyre something i have fond memorys of as a child, being allowed one thing and coming home with bundles of polly pockets or my little ponys. Some carboot sales these days are going down hill, allowing more market-style stalls and by that i mean ones selling knock off dish cloths and dusters ect. Anyway i've found this little carboot near me which is relatively new and only has about 20-30 cars each time but i found some wonderful finds: 3 silk shirts, a grey long sleeved top which has no lables but is made out of such a soft material, a cream jumper made of 100% lambswool and finally these bags, perfect for when i dont want to lug around my huge bag. Aand it gets better, all of that for £8.50, i will post pictures of the shirts at a later date.

Sunday, 24 July 2011

Tomorrow I'll post about the car boot sale and the amazing bargains which i found today, however i just wanted to mention this nail varnish which i love. Bearing in mind I'm not really a nail varnish fan I'm actually considering buying this one after borrowing it off my friend last week, Its an OPI one called Glitzerland, its such a perfect gold colour.

I just thought I'd share my weekend bag with you, despite looking small in the photo its quite a reasonable size, its make is Samsonite, and make this is my fault at being awful at photography but in the flesh its more of an orangey tone. However its perfect for weekends away and the shoulder strap makes it perfect if i have other bags to carry as well, like the one containing a cake on my last trip.
This post is basically to scare my friend if she ever reads this post, but i am quite a fan of these snake cuffs, i have two of my own which i shall show you at some point, one i found in a vintage shop in Bath and the second one that my mother gave me that she's had for ages, but anyway here are some snakes that i like at the moment, especially the ring.

Thursday, 21 July 2011

Sorry about the lack of posting, I've been crazy busy working, and I'm off to visit one of my friends from university later, but i thought I'd just post the latest addition to my wish list, wedges - I love them my favorite pair of going out heels is a pair of black wedges, i can wear them for hours without my feet even realising, anyway these ones caught my eye. Shame i don't think my shoe budget will really stretch to this pair so looks like I'll be ebaying around.

Monday, 18 July 2011

This came through the post today and i am currently in the process of circling my wish list, oh dear i can see this weeks wages being spent already.
I spotted this blazer in a charity shop near where i work, i tried it on and loved the buttons but i wasn't sure about the lack of collar, and the fact its rather large, turns out it looks okay on, just definitely isn't fitted. Anyway i left it in the shop and went to work, later in the day the lady that works in the Charity shop brought it into work for me and said it was a present, the sweetest thing ever, sometimes you forget there are some really nice people out there.

So as I've mentioned before I'm quite a fan of sequins and I've spent all day watching films and staying snuggled up inside away from the rain, what happened to summer i do not know, anyway I've been browsing net-a-porter and these sequins cheered me up, I've also downloaded Picasa, I'm such a novice but i need something to edit my awful pictures with.
Neon jewellery... I've only ever really associated it with festivals and raves, but I'm starting to think that was wrong of me, i mean everyone has been to a neon or UV party but after reading this in today's Telegraph magazine i actually found myself warming to it, especially the necklace in the top right corner, which can be found here. And yes before you ask i know how shabby it is, i wish my scanner was fixed i really do.

Saturday, 16 July 2011

Despite it supposedly being the middle of summer, today has been tipping it down from rain, i got home this morning and snuggled up in a rug with a mug of coffee on the sofa. Anyway i thought id post these little things, they're spinach and ricotta rolls, basically every time i go to Harrods i always buys some of these, so i thought I'd have a go at making my own, turns out they're just as good and we're all gone before tea. Hope its not as rainy for you all.

Tuesday, 12 July 2011

As promised here is my latest purchase, by a brand called Deena & Ozzy, however i brought them from Urban Outfitters and that's the only place I've seen them stocked. They were in the sale and i figured they'd be a good summer purchase since they can go with pretty much anything.

Monday, 11 July 2011

Another quick little sketch i did, from another photo in the latest issue of Vogue, and hopefully tomorrow i shall post my purchase from my weekend trip to Cardiff. Hope you all had a great start to the week. Once again sorry about the photo i keep meaning to fix the scanner but it seems like the last thing on my mind after a day at work.

YAY,put the flags out, i passed my first year at uni, as motivation to do well in my exams i was promised my first pair of jimmy choo's if i got over 60% in both my exams,and i did so hopefully a pair of these beautys will be heading to my feet soon.

Thursday, 7 July 2011

Just a little sketch i did yesterday on my day after reading this months (well Augusts) issue of vogue, even though I'm not sure it really turned out like the photo it was based on, hope you all have a lovely day. Also once again i apologise for the fact its a photo, my scanner should be working soon- fingers crossed.

Wednesday, 6 July 2011

I love it when Vogue falls through my letterbox on a day where i have nothing planned, so i can lounge around with a cup of coffee and spend all day reading it from front to back.

Tuesday, 5 July 2011

It's my day off tomorrow and i intend to spend the day tidying and watching films, including The September Issue which i got for my birthday last year, i love it, it's a really good film, have lovely days everyone.

Monday, 4 July 2011

Despite being busy at work, i did manage to pop into a charity shop near where i work and managed to find this beautiful Osprey London waist belt for £5 such a good find i wore it out the next evening.
Ive had a bit of a hectic weekend and i know it was a few days ago now but i just wanted to say how beautiful i thought Kate's dress was at the wedding, I've always been such a fan of hers, I also have a book 'KATE MOSS STYLE' if you're a fan of hers too i suggest you get it, its quite a good read.

Friday, 1 July 2011

Just a quick post today but i had to mention this stunning dress, I saw it in the papers at work today, Kate Middleton look amazing in it, its a dress by a designer called Erdem Moralioglu.Kate wears it so well.

I love sequins and last weekend i read an interview in the telegraph with Alice Temperly, and one thing that caught my eye and i thought was amazing was that one year when she threw a fancy dress party the theme was sequins. I am definitely taking this idea next time i throw a party and i cannot wait. Also I've always been a fan of the Olsen twins and i love the dress she is wearing.
The Hermes website is seriously the coolest, besides the products part of the website they have a 'travel the world of Hermes'. Each little square is a different feature or story; I spent hours looking at it when i just found it. One of this is this bracelet which you can print out and make, i love things like this, it brings you back to the real world and my childhood where i would spend hours and days cutting and sticking doing arts and crafts.

Wednesday, 29 June 2011

Sorry i havent posted in a while i've been so busy with work, however i did have time to visit a carboot sale at the weekend, and it was definately worth it, i got some really nice finds, regardless of the fact it was the hottest day of the year so far and i managed to purchace the thickest winter jumper.

Anyway this bee ring is so beautiful, find it here, im just not sure about shipping else one would be on my finger already.

Daisy by Marc Jacobs really is my favorite perfume, its the only one I'm really loyal to, plus it reminds me of my holiday to Dubai where one of the employees of the shop, gave me one of the Daisy's from this display because i was so fond of them. Talking of it i really need to add this perfume to my shopping list. Also i apoligise for the awful quality of all my pictures, my scanner still isnt working and therefore the only way i can upload my own work is by taking a photo of it.

I really really really would like these shoes, a lot. They're beautiful, i love the colours, there are also a pair of flats which are similar but with some turquoise so i may have to invest in them first.

I spent Fathers day with my family at a polo match, luckily there were several stands selling clothes and some beautiful handbags which have definitely found there way to my wish list. Another stand which caught my eye was a stand called wherethefoxhat they sold amazing handmade fur hats, they were so soft and so beautiful.

Friday, 17 June 2011

Well, my camera is still broken but i thought id post this sketch anyway, sorry its only a photo of it, and the bracelet along side it was a lovely little charity shop find this morning.

Thursday, 16 June 2011

I got this book for christmas and it is one of my favorite books, get it from amazon or any good bookshop, the photos and sketches in it are amazing as are the designers. I will try and get round to posting some of my own sketches once i reinstall my scanner. Hope its sunny where you are as this miserable weather is rubbish.
