Just Do It

tee and beanie: eBay, short leggings: diy, socks: my nans!, watch: american apparel creepers: glamorous

Hey guys! First of all thank you to everyone that entered my competition to win the Fashion for Home boxes, the lucky winner was Lucy from Fine and Bambi! I'm so jealous Lucy aha :) I have let Fashion for Home know and they should be in contact with you in due course!! 

Secondly, since moving back to Bristol in the summer the amount I have blogged has become less and less. I thought I would have loads more time to blog when I was back at uni but it turns out I really struggle to find the time... I mostly leave the house wearing leggings, a jumper, trainers and a beanie (yes the same ones pretty much!) and have so much work on that I don't get time to read any other blogs like I used to or even post myself! So I'm going to say a temporary goodbye over the next coming months leading up to my dissertation hand in and exam period as I really need to focus on that at the minute! Hope you're all still here when I get back!!! :D

I'll leave you with a final outfit post which was taken about a month ago in the snow, proving my point that I never get round to posting my outfits! The boyfriend bought me this tee, and beanie (oh and the creepers :D) for Christmas and they're definitely my new favourite items. I've ranted on about this quite a lot but I have barely bought any clothes for myself since going back to uni, which has been so difficult as last year I was a spendaholic, so it was so exciting to get new clothes!! 

Take care everyone, see you in a few months!!

Grey Shading

dress, jacket and necklace: topshop, bracelets: charity shop, casio: american apparel, boots: primark

This is a very un-me outfit, but recently I've developed a liking for longer dresses / skirts. I'm not usually brave enough to wear them but have bought a few longer wardrobe editions recently. I wore this outfit on christmas day; the dress was £29 from Topshop and such a good buy, I really like the fit and it's quite plain so I didn't feel too dressed up wearing it. I have worked a lot of christmas day's so usually end up finishing work and eating my dinner in pj's and a dressing gown so it was nice to dress up a little.

A note on my hair, I know the roots are awful butttttt I've decided that in a few more months it will grow out and I'll have the perfect dip-dyed effect ha. I just have to put up with how ridiculous it looks at the moment! I've finished my essay wahoo. Now onto the dissertation... see you in 15,000 words.

Chicago Bears

jumper: charity shop, dress: topshop, boots: primark

Happy new year, hope you all saw it in in style. I was at motion watching the likes of sub focus and scratch perverts, was so much fun. Although, I've had a horrible two day hangover and haven't achieved an awful lot... that's all changing tomorrow though. I have an essay to write, a dissertation to start and the gym to get back to (christmas bingeee). So I'm spending the next few days in the library with the boyfriend, (who is luckily in the same situation as me) christmas is well and truly overrrr :(

A new year means a new start so I thought I would have a little blog make over and I've gone for bigger pictures and a different header, what do you think? 

Have you guys got any new years resolutions? I think mine are to be more proactive with my uni work, what I want to do after uni and of course my blog - it was so much easier to keep on top of when I was working and didn't have a million essays to write!!

Forever Ago

hat: rokit, levis shirt: charity shop, belt: vintage, socks: nans, boots: primark

These photos were taken forever ago (hence the name of the post) on a very windy afternoon on the balcony of my boyfriends fourth floor flat which is why they're not great aha. Wearing my much loved Levis denim shirt and hat from Rokit, it hasn't spent a lot of time off my head since I bought itt.

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas yesterday I ate far too much but didn't drink that much, last year I was asleep by 8pm, I made it past that this year!! I took a few snaps of my outfit so shall post them soon. Off to Bristol to brave the sales tomorrow (and finish my Christmas shopping, oops).
