It’s been so long since I last blogged! Since then, its dropped to unbearable freezing temperatures and I’ve accumulated various items of clothing into my wardrobe!
Today I went shopping to try and find a really warm winter coat, kind of like a parka. Unfortunately, I didn’t find one but I didn’t leave Cambridge empty handed! I bought these gorgeous Topshop Chelsea Boots, which I had been wanting for like the past year. They were £45, and Topshop allows student discount so they were only £41.50. I was a bit reluctant about buying them because of the prize, but after wearing them just one day, I’m so glad I did! It seems they’re going to be especially useful over winter, as my feet always go ice cold.
The only thing is, is they seem to crease and mark easily. but I thought they’re there to be worn and used!
I paired my new boots with a grey skater dress, a black bag, wool tights, and a black and white jumper.
Bag – H&M – £14.99
Skater Dress – Primark – £5
Jumper – Boohoo – £12
Boots – Topshop – £45
Another thing I’ve bought recently is the black bag from H&M which I use for college. It has both a small strap and a shoulder strap, and also fits my A3 art book in. …And for just £14.99, it’s so worth it!
My nails are black using Barry M’s Jelly Nail Varnish (£3.99)
On Monday it was absolutely boiling, and Zoe (fashion blogger for runway) and I decided to wander through fields on a bit of a walk, and of course we both took the opportunity to share our summeroutfits.
I wore a high waisted floral skirt with a navy turtleneck sleeveless crop top (Primark, £2.50) with black studded pumps.
My 2 top buys this week both came from Primark, and at such a great price. The crop top was only £2.50 which is an absolute bargain, and I also bought these necklaces which came in a three pack:
Ice creams; milkshakes; photos; sun and Annabel- pretty much sums up the lovely day we had at the beach at the weekend! Annabel took me to Aldeburgh yet again (see my previous Aldeburgh post here), and I had a lovely time exploring Aldeburgh and Thorpeness, which are both beautiful coastal towns in the English county of Suffolk.
I wore a burgundy cardigan (Primark), a ruffled top (Topshop), blue converse, suede leggings, and pearl earrings (Accessorize). We also made a quick visit to Southworld and it’s pier, where we also had lunch and also explored!
The beach at Aldeburgh had lots of boats on, which were perfect to take some artsy photos..!
Our icecreams from a shop in Aldeburgh, I was so excited when they had gluten free cones available aha
Haven’t written in such a long time, literally because I’ve barely seen shopping recently or done anything exciting so thought I wouldn’t bore you guys
Anyway, even when I did go shopping (with fashion blogger Zoe) I found nothing I went looking for, or at least found most things I went in for but nothing in my size! It was so annoying and i’d been so excited as well to go shopping. I’m looking forward to summer so much and the weather started to actually get better, every day I just get more and more excited. I’ve got 7 days until my last exam and then that’s me done at school woooo, so summer holidays will be a month earlier this year yay
After my depressing shopping trip, I decided to have a search on the internet to make me feel better. Even though the online shops still didn’t have what i wanted in my size online, i found some other cute picks which I’ve put on my June 2013 wishlist. There’s not too many as of yet, and besides it is only the 5th.
These white high waisted shorts are absolutely gorgeous, or at least they seem perfect from Topshop’s online photo. The light material means they are perfect for summer whilst the shape is just so simply flattering. You might not be able to see from the photo but they have small, cute little flowers embroided in the lace.
I don’t usually go for these sort of tops but I tried this on in the shop seeing as Zoe was trying something on too. I absolutely adore the pattern and the vibrant colours, and it would go nicely with some high waisted shorts or a skirt (see no. 6).
I was overjoyed when i saw this on H&M’s website, as first of all i thought hey it’s a nice top, but when i saw the price things just got better. At only £4.99 it seems a massive bargain, and so perf to go with everything. It is open-work lace and I can imagine it’s perfect for sliding on over a bikini after a dip in the pool on holiday. It’s available in cream (like the colour of the top in no. 5), which I think I would go for considering the weather.
Okay so I know what you’re probably thinking, how on earth are these appropriate for the sunny weather? Yeah me too but I seriously think these are amazing. I tried some on similar in Primark and they were beautiful, but for £15 in Primark I thought they weren’t worth it for the quality. Boohoo, Asos and MissGuided all have practically identical leggings for only £5 more which I think is worth it because of the higher quality. They probably aren’t best for summer because I’d totally bake in them but just wanted to share my thoughts on them!
This is really quite similar to number 3, but slightly different! It has gorgeous sequin embellishments over it and is sleeveless. I probably wouldn’t buy both 3 and this one, plus also there is quite a big price difference.
This is one of the items of clothing I’ve been wanting for quite a while now, and I’ve been in several times to get it but wasn’t there! Finally decided to order it online, it was in my basket and everything was great…. and then it went out of stock. So, I have still not bought it but I am still looking for it every time I go shopping. This would be such a useful skirt to have as you could quickly put it on and match it with almost anything. I’ve noticed Topshop (and practically every other shop) has a similar skirt for only £20, so I may buy from there if New Look never get it back in. I feel it would be my ‘summer skirt’ that I would wear just so much and make so much use out of, but maybe something with come up in the shops in the next few weeks that will become my summer skirt.
I have to admit I didn’t think I’d be writing for so long but I just kept finding more and more online..
I really really really want a cute sundress, so really any white/delicate dress is on my wishlist, not just this particular Topshop one. Basically the same explanation- but it is perfect for summer- perfect for the beach, holidays, town, picnics, and the list is endless.
8) SELECTION OF BOOHOO’S NECKLACES | From top to bottom; £6, £8, £10
Necklaces like these help to make a simple outfit a bit more exciting or change the look slightly, and are all at very reasonable prices. These ones from boohoo caught my eye, especially the Heidi Bird Necklace which creates such a statement. The Lucy Triangle Double Chain Pendant is also very likely to go with every outfit, which is what makes it such a good buy. The Mia Cut Out Tribal Necklace is also ideal for festivals or to finish an outfit off.

Today I was off school and surprisingly I actually got quite bored..
I decided to choose several items which I would like when redecorating my room at some point in the distant future! I found some really cute ideas and items!
1. Tesco Ditsy Floral Duvet Set
For some reason i really want one of these at the moment, they seem so lovely and fresh. And now that I have found one for £9, i think i might just order one. such a great price! it is also available in double and king size.
2. Retro Style Wall Clock
So it’s not the perfect clock which I had an image of in my head, but it’ll do! This clock is £10, any others I found were about £30, and to be honest I’d rather spend that on clothes…Anyway I think this clock would look rather sweet when mixing with the floral duvet because of the clash!
Now a bedroom can’t look fresh, airy and beautiful if its in a total state. That’s why these storage boxes are literallythe most ideal, useful and at the same time – beautiful things. Just shove EVERYTHING into these boxes, and stack them up in the corner. The pattern is the best thing about it 💖
Can be found off here from just £3.99 at Dunelm Mill.
Moving onto the more DIY or accessory elements to my ideal room, I came across these Mason Jars being put to good use:
These seem like such a cute idea, so useful for storing anything in really (that fits). This photo was taken from another WordPress blog: Weeping Cherries
5. Antique World Map Poster
Not sure why I want this, but I think it’s just and I’d put a pin on the map every time I visit somewhere new. I also like the vintage effect of the map🎀 There are plenty of places to buy it, one of them being here for £4.29.
6. Birdhouse Earring Holder
I cant find where to buy one of these at the moment, can anyone help? I really want one! Lovely touch to your bedroom whilst being most useful to hang up earrings!
An alternative to this earring holder can be found in an earlier post here.
7. Frame Your Favourite Quote
This is such a cute idea (must have said ‘cute’ so many times in this post), and so easy as well. Scribble around your favourite quote in a book, and frame it.
8. Glass Storage
I love this idea because its just so easy and simple. So ideal for sorting makeup brushes etc. I found this on Pinterest right here.
And that’s about it! Let me know what you think or if you have any questions, do ask xxxxx
