Apparently by mere chance

Crop top - Topshop
Acid wash swing skirt - Topshop
Frilly socks - Topshop
Brown Morris boots - Topshop
Bracelet 'MrFrenchy' - Topshop
Lipstick - Collection 2000 pink shock
Nail varnish - BarryM Gelly Watermelon

Okay, I'll confess...I have a slight topshop obsession. But the fact that nearly everything I'm wearing is from topshop was a complete coincidence :) This outfit is a bit summery for this time of year, but nothing skin coloured tights and a vest top underneath can't solve. The top caught my eye due to the colour, its a gorgeous bright green and the zebra just adds cuteness. Everything else just worked its way in.
P.S: please excuse my less than tidy bedroom x

Great gangling lashes

Maybelline Rocket Volum' Express mascara. I have long wild eyelashes that tend to have a mind of their own. So in the search of a mascara that will tame them I decided to try this. I've been really impressed, I think the thick round brush helps a lot to position the eyelashes (note: I used an eyelash curler before applying the mascara). The price was reasonable too, reduced to £6 in my local boots or £8 usually. My eyelashes will never be perfect but I can always try :) x

In some remote galaxy

Birthday girl here wanted to show you her new outfit :D When asked what I wanted for my birthday the answer was of course "clothes!".
The turtle neck crop top is an unusual choice for me, I've never been a fan but this galaxy print really caught my eye and its perfect with high waisted skirts. I picked it up at Missguided.
The denim swing skirt is from Topshop, I love 'flippy' skirts but wanted a change from my black one and the oh-so-common leather look. Denim was the perfect solution and it'll be a key piece in my spring/summer wardrobe. The boot heels are from Missguided also, they probably aren't to everyone's taste but again I was just taken by them instantly. I needed a change from black heels and these are super comfortable and a crazy cool galaxy/almost tie-dye print .
Last but not least I am wearing a new lipstick from collection 2000 in pink shock x

Guilty as charged!

I couldn't resist the lipsticks in topshop when I popped in the other day. Topshops lipstick in Innocent is the most gorgeous girly pink. As expected its moisturising, brilliantly pigmented and lasts really well.

I tried to get the most natural light possible for the photo to show its true colour,  so excuse my skin, nobody's perfect :)

Festival of Purification


The word February is believed to have derived from the name 'Februa' taken from the Roman 'Festival of Purification'. Its also the month I was born...just so you know.

So I thought I'd get a good start to this month with an outfit post :) This month is all about looking forward to the year ahead and getting back on our feet after the January blues.

I'm wearing my trusty topshop lipstick and jumper (again!). As well as, a black skater skirt from River island and my brown vintage style morris boots from Topshop.
Most importantly featured is my satchel from Bagashu
(, a family friend started up a small shop and I was happy to support her by getting this lovely little bag. Its just the right size for everything I need and I love the colours.

Happy February everyone x
