I don't know how many times I've told myself I need to wear more colour... Never happens! I'm trying to put myself on a shopping ban this month, I have so many neglected pieces that need loved. Although I'm banning myself more so for the fact that I'm absolutely skint after my college messing up my funding - not happy! Anyway, these are a few things I've been lusting over. I'm in love with the studded Zara bag, I've been looking for one for about three months now, I'll probably purchase it or the famous Zara 'Messenger Bag With Edging' still undecided!

Next post will probably be my 'April Favourites', or an OOTD!

London | April 12'









 



   So, I'm not long home from a 10 day holiday in London, seeing my boyfriend. Unfortunately he doesn't live here in Glasgow so we take any opportunity possible to see each other. London was amazing as usual - we tried to cram so much into the time we had. Even though we had been to most of these places before, it's always nice to re-visit and be able to enjoy them even more.

   Our first visit into the centre was to Oxford Street and the surrounding areas (Carnaby St etc). I got some really lovely stuff that day - I managed to get some Topshop Vectra shoes finally! Everywhere in Glasgow were sold out of them - once I saw them I literally needed them. Also, this was the first time I'd been to Monkii (which is my new favourite shop ever), everything in there is just so nice! They don't over do it with detailing and their pieces aren't too plain, they're just right. I bought a few things from there too.


   The next time we went into the city centre was to Camden & Leicester Square. We left the house pretty late (around 4pm), for me, this turned out to be the perfect time to be in these busy parts of London. I really can't handle all the pushing and shoving! When we got to Camden although some of the stalls had started closing up, we still managed to find some good'ens. A few shopping hours later and it was time for food, mexican wraps yeah! Leicester Square was a totally different atmosphere it was way too busy, even at almost 11pm.

   The rest of the the trip was just as lovely, I'd be here for hours listing every detail. I cant wait to go back down when it's sunny. The next blog post will probably be a London haul!

Nothing like a good bargain!

Today, my mumma' & I went charity shopping! I'm such a sucker for a good bargain, I've been raiding charity shops now for a few years and have found so many amazing vintage pieces and just general high street bits. I thought I'd start sharing my finds and some tips on how I manage to find them!

American Apparel Cranberry Hoodie: £2.75
Yes, £2.75! I couldn't believe it either. I loves it.


Topshop Knitted Polka Dot Jumper: £2.99
Even though it's coming into summer now, I thought this was so so cute!


Vintage Levis Denim Shirt: £1.99
I have a few of these now, I bought this to maybe cut off the sleeves and stud the shoulders!


Vintage Muli-Coloured Speckle Denim Shirt St. Michaels: 50p


 
Ben Sherman Burgundy Short Sleeve Shirt: £3.00
(Brand new, had all its tags! Little something for the boyfriend)


Vinage Dior Leather belt: £1.75
Probably my favourite purchase, so timeless and elegant!
I think this will look amazing with just a little black dress.

I will be posting some OOTDs wearing some of these soon!

Hello Blog!

Hi everyone!

  So, I'm new to all this. I've decided to start my own blog after watching youtube videos & following fashion/beauty blogs for years! Yes, I love fashion although I'm not claiming to be "fashionable", I do love nothing better than to sit in my jammies all day with my hair tied back stuffing my face!
  
  I guess I should tell you a little bit about myself... I'm a 19 year old, photography student from Glasgow. This blog is basically going to be for everything I love: fashion, beauty, people, music & photography. 


So lets just see how this goes! :)
