You fit me better than my favourite sweater...

Shirt - Topshop
Leggings - Topshop

At the moment I am knee deep in French revision - I have an AS speaking exam on Tuesday and every time I think about it I almost have a panic attack.... my posts may be few and far between from now on due to my upcoming exams but I'm trying to post as much as possible for you all :)

They're the perfect colour, the perfect heel, the perfect price, they're so unbelievably comfy and they seem to attract a lot of attention - so far I've been followed round shops, been stopped in the college corridors, called over to lunch tables and even my boyfriend has been stopped by people in a queue to be told that they liked his girlfriend's shoes...
They're only available to pre-order at the moment but you can get them here - I'm tempted to get them in black and am strangely attracted to the green ones...

Another item of clothing I am currently loving is this shirt - it's reminiscent of Jessie J's look during the Voice auditions which really inspired me, I love her dip dyed purple hair with the patterned shirt and disco pants.

Good luck to those of you with exams around the corner!

P.S. Get well soon to my bestest friend Sian - please make her feel better by following her tumblr here :)

My DIY Nebula Shoes...

 I've been obsessed with nebula shoes for little over a year now and I almost, allllmmoosst, coughed up the heavy price for the originals - but then I thought, why don't I just have a go myself? I bought these plain black ankle boots from New Look (they're the same as the black ones I wear pretty much every day) and some oil paints and voila! It took for bleedin' ever and they don't touch the Kustom Kix originals, but I'm actually quite proud of myself and I can't wait to wear them...I just have to wait about 4 years for them to dry now :(

Life's too short to even care at all...

Top - Topshop
Rosary - Next
Dreamcatcher necklace - H&M
Black Stone Ring - Forever21
Clear Stone Ring - Topshop

Awww look at the little unicorns being in love! N'aww :3 I love this top and I love my new shorts...The Ragged Priest are DIY geniuses and I love their entire pastel range - it's a shame there isn't more stockists!  I only wish they were slightly higher waisted for wearing crop tops like this - when my belly button shows I feel like a popstar from the 90's and like I should join S Club 7...

Hit it with the shameless webcam shots!

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

My Little Pony

Tops and shorts - Topshop

I always have an outfit forming in my head and after seeing these crop tees in Topshop I have been searching the high street for things to pair them with - I just think they're the cutest little tops and I couldn't resist trying them on with high-waisted shorts! I love the idea of pairing them with the high-waisted black skater skirt and tights with a chunky cardi for those cooler days and then the gorgeous pale blue version with bare legs in the summer. As you can see...I really wasn't joking with the whole 'explosion in a My Little Pony factory' thing...

I'll try to post an outfit post this week but I'm off to London tonight to pay another visit to Great Ormond Street Hospital - whoop! Plus, what with flying and getting back to college it's been non-stop recently!

Ooo and I'm planning a giveaway for when I reach 400 followers! I got to 350 yesterday and I'm super duper grateful and happy that you all take your time to read my blog - thank you guys! I lurrrvvee you :)

USA Haulin'

Jumper, Nail polish, Notebooks and Pink tee - Urban Outfitters
Rings - Forever 21
Converse - Converse

I just wanted to show you guys the things I've bought in America - I ended up with some amazing deals: my Converse were 25% off, the nail polishes and notebooks were both on offer and I discovered my new favourite jumper in the sale section of Urban Outfitters reduced from $54 to $19.99! I love it so much and it's super comfy, you can still get it here if you like it. I also got a plain pink burnout tee that I used in these photos for $9.99 instead of $30...I am a very happy bunny :)

Ooo and I'm being taken to New York in the summer (arrrrghhhhh excited doesn't even begin to cover it!) so if any of you have been there and have any places/sites/shops/anything to recommend I'd be really grateful! 

I hope you all had a lovely Easter and ate chocolate until you almost exploded!

Get in my wardrobe - Nasty Gal

It's every bloggers dream wardrobe rolled up into one online marketplace that epitomises cool - yep Nasty Gal has once and for all absconded with my heart. Originally a vintage ebay store, this treasure trove of a website has me refreshing it's 'New In' page daily: I love the styling that's crafted around every piece and the quirky model fact files beside each set of photographs, the result is an enviable array of vintage and affordable designer and high street pieces that have me drooling at my laptop screen, wishing for the legs of a 5ft 10" model and desperately wanting a black hat.

As I'm currently in the US of A I thought it only appropriate to do this post - I had ordered a pair of shoes and a cardigan from Nasty Gal to be shipped here (instead of paying the $35 tracked shipping to the UK) and they were well worth the wait...despite the shoes being a tad hard to walk in. I guess I'll show you guys soon, along with anything else I get whilst I'm here :)
The images above are my absolute favourites from the site at the moment - you have to be quick though (pearls of wisdom right here, as my biology teacher would say) as some of these were only on the 'new in' page for a day or two before sizes small and medium sold out...not that I've been looking obsessively or anything....narh.
I saw the Aztec dress in a small shop in Boston yesterday and I'm really kicking myself that I didn't at least try it on - but who knew Converse were going to give me 25% off and I would've actually been able to afford it? Ho hum, hindsight is a wonderful thing. I think it would look really cool with the chunky cardigan I ordered before and these shoes from Own the Runway that I've got my eye on...oh to be rich!
I could waffle on about each individual item here for ages but you'd probably all want to kill me by the end of it (or worse, unfollow) so I shall stop here!
