Under your spell





Shirt - Primark
Skirt - RARE
Bow - Primark
Rings - Topshop & market
Loafers - River island
Bag - Bershka
Lips - MAC Rebel

Hey dolls,
So I wore this outfit recently, I was just looking around town etc, its been soooo hot recently in the UK and its going to be for a few days. I actually want to wear cosy jumpers but the weatherman isn't having it haha

I got this bow from primark for £2 the day before and I thought it would be such a cute detail to an outfit like this one, let me know if you like the idea!

[Btw I went to see 'DRIVE' and 'warrior' the other day, they are both amazing films! I recommend them + lots of eye candy hehe!]

Hope you are all well =]

The infamous Lita's

Black calf leather Litas - Jeffrey Campbell

Hey dolls,

 So my litas FINALLY arrived! WOOO! 

Ok theres kind of alot I want to say but I dont want to make this post too long! I ordered these litas from Solestruck which is an american site on the 31st of august...yeah...august! They say it will take up to 10 days to arrive but no I was waiting until yesterday..Not impressed! 

I reckon it wouldn't be a problem if you live in the US but ordering from overseas was a nightmare!
 They cost $159.95 and then shipping on top brought the price up to around what you can pick them up for in London anyway in Office or urban outfitters, you can track the delivery on the site which is quite handy and thats what I did but when i thought...ok this is getting a bit long now, the tracking update was so vague! it didnt explain atall what was going on, I went to my local post office (where the deliveries go to) and they said it was at customs, Surely enough it was but they didnt let me know for a good few days, I had to phone up and then pay £32.10 over the phone which was VAT i think...I thought that was a bit out of order! I contacted Solestruck and they said it had been given a new tracking number once it entered the UK.....well thanks for letting me know! 

 So I waited 22 days for my beloved litas to arrive...Which meant after a while my excitement kind of drifted..I begun to think they might not come!

 All I can say is...I wouldn't recommend solestruck if you are ordering from the UK!

 HOWEVER! Because I hate to be negative! Now they have arrived I LOVE them and they are just as amazing as I thought they would be, I just like to stare at them...haha!
 They are great quality and the colour and finish is perfect, I tried them on and the feel quite comfortable, they wobble a little bit but I defiantly need to just get used to them!

 Now I am planning what colour to get next...hehe! (Im wearing them tonight so i'll give you guys an update!) 

 Has anyone else had delivery problems? Maybe mine was just a one-off, anyone got any tips or tricks for walking in them? =]

Dinner after dark









Shirt - Pop boutique 
Jacket - Charity shop
Wedges - H&M
Bag - Pop boutique
Necklace - Forever 21

Hey dolls,
On monday it was my mums birthday so that evening we headed uptown to a lovely restaurant called 'Belgo' (I believe) As usual before leaving the house I was rushing around my room, tearing clothes out of  wardrobes and stressing about what to wear! This is what I ended up wearing haha, I know it looks short but I was wearing a H&M bodycon skirt underneath so it wasn't too risque'!
It was lovely and after that we went to Hagan Daaz and then headed home, I fell in love with the colour of this wall and wished I painted some of the walls in my room that colour haha!

Hope you are all well!

Monki Business









Top - Monki
Skirt - Bershka
Chelsea boots - Monki
Bag - Bershka
Necklaces - Fashionology & Topman

Hey dolls,

This was my outfit today =] I was on Oxford street yesterday and I thought I would check out Monki in Selfridges, I had remembered Barbara mentioning the shop in one of her videos so I thought I would have a look! I really loved the pieces, I wanted to get so many bits but you know when you have to refrain yourself! The prices are what really impressed me, Really reasonable...H&M type of prices.

I found this gorgeous white lace top and these chelsea boots for only £30 which I thought was good for the quality!

Have any of you been there? I think its my new favourite shop!

Hi dolls,

I wasn't sure how to style these leopard leggings at first even though I loved them but heres an idea, maybe some of you may find it helpful?
I actually now just realised i've worn this shirt three times on my blog now o gosh! But I hope some of you could take it as how to re-style one item in different ways!

Le theatre of the nameless







Hey dolls,
The other week was an Illamasqua event and I always love their events! Always stunningly presented and full of intricate details and fun things to look at and do. I was so gutted I couldn't make it but they were lovely enough to send me along a few pieces from the new collection! 'Theatre of the nameless'.
As usual its a gorgeous collection and spot on for A/W, Some of the colours I would wear more than others though!
I always love the imagery that showcases the collections so I took a snap of one of my favourite looks.

I received 'Kink' nail varnish which is a kind of muted moss green, 'Beguile' pure pigment which is an amazing fairy dust kind of powder, reminds me a little of reflects by MAC but with a twist and 'Facade' intense lipgloss which is a nude brown colour,
This lipgloss isnt something i'd usually go for because it dosent do too much for my skin tone but i'll try and work with it!

All in all the collection is another hit from Illamasqua, their collections are always awe-inspiring, I would love to try out some of the other pieces and my favourite from what I received is probably the pigment (for which the picture dosent do justice!)

Hope you found this interesting/helpful! Check out the new collection maybe online if you cant get to the store ^_^
