Say hello...

To the newest member of my shoe family, Damsel.



I picked them up today. I am in love. ($145 from Solestruck)

Today was a good day for my wardrobe! All of these lovely things came in the post this morning...

Sheer blouse, printed skirt and American Apparel skater dress - all from Miss Riot
I saw these gorgeous pink striped jeans on the River Island website, which doesn't offer student discount. I know ASOS sells River Island so I looked on there and was so happy to snap them up for just £36 with my 10% off! Outfit post to follow :)

I'm well and truly a shopaholic.

I need a holiday

Bleurgh, I think I may just be the palest person ever right now. A holiday is definitely in order! Thinking of booking a week in Ibiza again with the girls, hopefully it happens; its so hard to actually book holidays especially when its a big group of you, no one ever coughs up the money! As long as I get some sun, sea, sand and alcohol, i'll be happy. I'd love to be back here tanning and partying with Freddie from Skins pleaseeee...

I love Benefit

I went and had a little free make-up lesson today with my favourite make-up brand Benefit. I've never done it before but wow, getting your make-up done by someone else is so relaxing! They showed me how to do my eyebrows perfectly, and ended up doing my whole face as the shop was really quiet. There were so many things I wanted to buy but I didn't let myself, I could have spent hundreds! I ended up buying a Boi-ing concealer, Brow Zings eyebrow palette and the Hoola bronzer as mine has nearly run out. I am not a big make-up fan so usually just buy cheap brand make-up from Boots, but since my eyebrows and dark circles round my eyes are a big issue for me, I thought i'd splash out, even if it did set me back just over £60 :(

New Shop!

Okay, so I have no idea why I didn't do this before. eBay's fees are actually ridiculous, are they some kind of joke? Way too expensive for my liking! Kind of defeats the object of actually making any money, and I hate all their stupid policies when it comes to listing and the customer being "always right", which isn't always true! Etsy is okay but you can't sell new stuff. I wanna be able to sell vintage clothes, new clothes, and my home-made and customised stuff, all in one place. So after hearing good things about Big Cartel i've decided to make my own :)

Have a look here, I haven't listed much yet but plan to list lots every day.
Hope you've all had a lovely Christmas break. I'm back to university tomorrow after 3 weeks, which means early mornings - my worst nightmare :(

2012 Wishlist

Just thought i'd share a few things I am lusting over this year. I get my student loan next week, which means I have to treat myself of course!

Clockwise from left:
1. JC Lita black and white stripe - because i'm obsessed with stripes.
2. Canon 600D - my 400D is passed its best now, poor little things running a bit slow, he's getting old.
3. JC Damsel tapestry - literally perfection, must have, always sold out though :(
4. Michael Kors watch - I think the picture speaks for itself.
5. Versace for H&M S/S12 - it comes in perfect timing with my loan. I'll definitely be snapping up a few bits!

What's on your wishlist this year? Any of the above?

Make Me Proud

200 followers :)

Yaaay! I reached 200 followers last night, so thank you very much to everyone who follows me, I hope you enjoy my blog :) If you want, you can also follow me on Twitter, Tumblr and like my Facebook page where it is easier to chat.

Today's outfit was kind of inspired by Rihanna. I thought i'd try out my new red wig - and I actually quite like it, but not sure if i'm brave enough to wear it out in public yet!

Spring is coming!

What a lovely sunny day here in England! I've been driving round everywhere trying to find a pair of Babyliss Wave Envy hair curlers, I used my friends on New Year's Eve and fell in love! Typically, they were sold out in every electrical shop in my town :( I did buy a huge sushi platter though so I am happy. A pretty plain outfit today but I haven't done an outfit post in a while so made my boyfriend take some photos... as you can tell he isn't the best photographer!

New Year... Fresh Start

I'm so tired right now and my mind is completely blank. I can't remember much of last night but I know it was a good one; it was a party organised by a friend so I literally knew everyone there - it was so lovely to be with everyone on the countdown to the new year. The only down side is I wore my new white Litas and walked home in the rain/mud and a couple of spikes fell off so they are all dirty and scuffed :( It makes me want to cry! Luckily they came with a few spair studs so i'll try get them as good as new in no time.
I couldn't find a headpiece so I ended up making one myself from an old belt and necklace. It took me forever but I think it came out okay, plus it stayed on perfectly all night! As you can see i've also dyed my hair a brighter pink. I used my friends "wave envy" crimpers, I love the effect they give your hair, so cute!

 dress - asos // studded belt - bootsale // socks - primark // shoes - jc




Now that 2012 is here, i'm going to try and stick to my new years resolutions...
  • Eat healthier
  • Go jogging (my boyfriend goes every single day, I have no excuse not to!)
  • Save as much money as possible
  • Sell lots of clothes (I have about 5 bin bags full in my garage waiting to be sold!)
  • Keep my room tidy
That's all, I wanted to keep it realistic!
Hope you all had an amazing New Year's Eve... happy new year to you all!
