I totally forgot to post these images! I took them ages ago and thought I'd posted them. I really love this outfit, if it wasn't so cold and I wasn't so pale though, I'd love to wear it with bare legs. The winter has really brought out my pale skin, but I've been fortunate enough to be sent a St Tropez kit!


I can't wait to try it! I've never tried St. Tropez before but I've heard all of the good reviews so I'm really looking forward to it; I have a lace cream leotard I always want to wear but look far too pale in, so I'll probably feature that in my next post!

These high necklines are everywhere at the moment, and I just love them. I like to balance the look out with a short skirt usually, but I like this longer skirt with is because it's quite short on one side. I've been wearing this a lot lately, paired with some creepers I picked up in Primark for £12 (and they're identical to the ones in New Look for £25! I did the compare!) I'm off to do dissertation work now, but I'll hopefully have a post up later in the week!

I'm lost in sleep

Old pictures I forgot to post! I love this Motel body. Most of the clothes I wear at the moment are Motel, I picked up a few sale pieces and was treated to a few bits for my birthday. These Hillary bodies are perfect to dress up or down; I wear mine with shorts, maxi skirts, midi's and minis! They go with literally anything and everything, and when you can pick them up in the sale for £12 you can't afford not to!

You can't really tell in the photos but I'm wearing a fossil necklace. As a child I loved rocks and fossils, I wanted to be a geologist! This fossil is an Orthoceras, 400million years old and one of the earliest recognised animals! I've had it for a couple of years now but completely forgot I had it; I think it's beautiful and can't believe it's so old! I have a few more pieces which have fossils in, I'll get round to wearing them on the blog soon :)

(P.S. Are my pictures really pixelly lately or is it just me?)

I'm her number one chalk outline on the floor.

Oh my god, I can't believe my commitment so showing off my aztec dress! You totally can't see it under my fur coat, so I had to brave the freezing weather! About 10minutes after taking these yesterday, it started snowing, and now my car is buried to the top of it's tyres in snow! I'm meant to be delivering Dominos pizza tonight, I'm pretty scared.

The lovely El from MeeMee sent me this gorgeous dress a couple of months ago, but due to a lack of camera I've had a hard time blogging. I think that's why I look so miserable in the first picture; it's been SO long since I did blog photos I've forgotten what to do! Cue awkward face. I love the print on this dress, and I don't think I've ever owned a dress is this colour and I really love the change! It's got a zip down the front too. I've been wearing it with a sheer black vest over it, or tucked into my studded leather skater skirt, but today I decided to keep it simple so that you guys could see it properly. It's only £16 as well, and today MeeMee have 20% off using the code FACEBOOKLOVE20 so treat yourself on this horrible snow day!

I've finished my exams and I'm about to start my final semester at uni. As much as I can't wait for the stresses of deadlines to be over, I don't ever want to leave! I think a Masters may be in the pipeline...Hope you enjoy the snow, I'm going to stay as far away from it as possible! I HATE being cold :(!

you're the limb I've lost but somehow I still feel it

Crazy sunny day! Regretted not putting my sunnies on. Here's my gorgeous new motel dress! I absolutely love this style with the deep cut arms and high neck, it's so 90s! And I managed to pick it up in the sale for £18 :)! The purple version is sold out now unfortunately but you can get the blue version here for £35. I love wearing this on its own or with a sheer vest over the top, or with my staple black skater skirt, and with my standard dark lip. I've unintentionally lost a stone and a half recently and I feel much more comfortable wearing bodycon, so I've been stocking up on a few motel dresses. This one is my favourite, but I also bought this one (which is also no longer available online), and I've got my eye on this gorgeous zabby one. I tried to buy it today but it was out of stock in my size, boo! I actually got an invite from the lovely Selina at Motel to their Motel event in just over a week! I'm going with my sister and I'm really excited! Let me know if you're going :)

I'll follow you into the dark

Say hello to my cat Bubble :)! She's such an affectionate cat, so when I'm outside taking photos she just wont leave me alone, my sister spends the whole time shouting 'bubble' so she goes to her instead ha! But I guess blogging and cats go hand in hand so I popped a picture of her in here.

I should have got a picture of my top without the coat on but it was soooo cold I didn't even think about taking the jacket off, but you totally can't see the leopard print cross. It's that top that every blogger had last year I think, but I still love throwing it on. Managed to pick up the leather panelled skirt for a fiver recently, couldn't even believe it! Such a bargain.

Just a quick one today because I have a full day of uni followed by work (I'm a Dominos delivery driver, very glamorous!) Let me know if you're going to the Motel christmas party! I've fallen out of the twitter loop and don't really know where to begin with all the x factor tweets that mean nothing to me :/ Have a lovely day guys :) x
