OOTE

On Sunday evening a group of people from work and I went to The Regency Club in Queensbury for dinner. I had a lovely evening and discovered that my taste buds can actually handle spicy food. Shown below is what I wore. Oh how I love this coat. It's from Zara and is one of the warmest that I've ever owned. I particularly love the fact that it's earned me the much loved nickname of lamby. Cute nickname right? Oh and I call this look Pimp Daddy. Haha! X

Mini Haul

As mentioned in my previous post I'm forever watching fashion related YouTube videos. I particularly enjoy those that are of a haul as I love seeing what finds other people have managed to get their hands on. In order to give you lovely readers an insight into what I've recently been buying and what is currently in the high-street and online stores I thought I would show you some of the stuff I've bought within the past two to three weeks. I will also be posting another haul pretty darn soon as I went slightly crazy and bought a ton of things online from Zara, Topshop, Office and Front Row Shop. I'm just waiting for all of my lovely goods to be delivered and then I can show you so definitely watch this space. X

December Favourites

I honestly don't think that there's a day that goes by in which I don't watch one of my favourite fashion gurus on YouTube. I've been a vivid watcher for years and I've always wanted to make my own videos but never really acted upon this. However, I FINALLY have and I uploaded my first ever video yesterday. As we're coming towards the end of December I thought it would be a good idea to kickstart my channel by filming a December Favourites video. Hope you enjoy and please excuse my lack of experince.

A particular character comes to mind when I look at this photo. That being the mean puppy fur addict, Cruella Deville. All I'm missing is about 101 dalmatians and a cigarette holder. I've pretty much mirrored her monochrome addiction and her choice of lipstick colour so surely I'm not the only one who sees a slight resemblance. Lol! X

Day out in Convent Garden

On Wednesday afternoon a few friends and I went for lunch and to the theatre to watch The Lion King as a surprise for a friend's birthday. We went to Bella Italia for lunch where I ordered the Quattro Stagioni Legumi. I did initially want a burger but we were told by the waiter that there were currently no burgers. Isn't that the most silliest thing you've ever heard? :/ We literally had to rush our food in order to get to the theatre in time and boy was it packed. The show was amazing and definitely worth every penny of £68. I was literally sat there thinking "Woah! This is their day jobs". I would definitely recommend you guys go and see it. You won't be disappointed, I promise.

Not wanting to call it a day we then went to Amorino. If you know me then you would know that I have a slight obsession with ice-cream. I love that stuff like there is no tomorrow and can easily devour a tub of it in no time. I was super excited as you can choose several flavours which they then present to you as a flower. How cute, right? Oh and how pretty are the Christmas lights and decorations in Convent Garden? X

Breasts or legs? On a night out you would normally choose to showcase one or the other. If I had to choose between the two I would go for legs. However, I much prefer showcasing my shoulders or back and occasionally a slight midriff. I think there is something extremely sexy and elegant about these certain areas on a woman. I recently purchased this bustier from H&M for £24.99 and I absolutely love it What do you normally showcase on an evening out? X

Mini MAC Haul

I recently had a little wander around in MAC and ended up treating myself to these babies I'm so happy that I've added Lady Danger to my lipstick collection as falling in love with it is pretty much an understatement. I might actually do a review on it so that I can tell all of you lovely people about how much I love it and how you should all go out to buy it. Seriously, it's amazing! X

Day & Evening Lookbook

I'm sure I'm not I know I'm not the only female who has one too many times stared at her wardrobe whilst mentally trying to put together an outfit. It can be quite frustrating when you don't know what to wear, especially when you have a limited amount of time to get ready. Telling yourself that it's because "I have hardly any clothes" is merely a lie and we all know it. In fact the majority of the time we get comfortable meaning we will gravitate towards a certain outfit because we've worn it out before and are happy with the way it looks. There is nothing wrong with this but when faced with the "What do I wear?" dilemma sometimes it can be helpful to have a blank mind when looking through your wardrobe. Forget all of the previous outfits you have put together and form new ones. Piece together clothing that you wouldn't usually as the outcome might just surprise you. Not only will you be creating a completely new look you will be using the clothes that you already have meaning no money has to be spent. 

To help give you some sort of inspiration in regard to putting together an outfit, I've created four different looks; two are for during the day and two are for during the evening. Hope you enjoy and let me know which one is your favourite X

Primark SS14 Collection

During the past two years I've only really gone to Primark for basics (i.e. tights and string vest tops) or to buy a few items before going on holiday during summer. However, this has not been the case as of late. In fact within the last month or two I've paid Primark quite a few visits and usually end up spending between £70 - £95 per visit. I feel that their stock has improved dramatically over the past few years and that they're spot on with the latest fashion trends. So much so that I literally want to get my hands on pretty much everything that they have in store right now. Oh and please do not get me started on their prices which are ever so cheap and cheerful. So you guys can imagine my excitement when I stumbled across their SS14 campaign pictures via Look. I've posted my favourite looks down below. Gosh I want NEED to get my hands on some of these clothes.

Is it slightly bizarre that whenever I wear this coat I feel as if I'm a member of the Cosa Nostra? Surely I can't be the only one who thinks I look a tad bit like a Mafioso or am I? Lol! On a more fashion-related note I love everything about it, from the length of it to the way it falls so effortlessly on me. Zara definitely has to be my 'go-to' for gorgeous and classic looking coats
