Black Chandeliers

Last of my outfits from my Excel Clothing win right here! I got this gorgeous dress as I don’t tend to own many formal dresses, and with a few things coming up I’m excited. I just threw this on with a kimono to cover up, but the pictures were a bit awful due to the sun glare so I only had these ones. The detailing on the bodice on the dress is incredible. I fully understand the price tag on it! Thinking of wearing this to my freshers ball as well. Not too sure yet.sigg

Here’s the second item I got from my Excel Clothing winnings … a gorgeous burnt orange Tommy Hilfiger jumper. I got this in a size large so it’s oversized and snuggly! I want a nice jumper for cold days and comfies at university. It’s colour I know! Which is strange for me I know but I love orange. It’s one colour I’m really drawn to. Also, I don’t know if you’ve maybe noticed this bag a whole lot on here the past year, it’s a real leather bag from TK Maxx that I got about 2 years ago for only £25! It’s been such a keeper, such a statement piece for me and so easy to wear. I throw it on everyday!

Next up is a gorgeous French Connection dress!

I’m posting my gear from Excel Clothing so you know what daaaat means – I actually managed to get my memory card back after losing it in a loan laptop, so lucky! I went and got it from PC World/Currys today and have been editing ever since I got home from work (after I ate a gorgeous curry that Tom made me) to get this post up so I apologise if it’s a bit late!

I got a bit of video too, so I can make an look book from the pieces I won. This Hugo Boss luggage bag – already reduced from £450 to around £320 I think.. It’s honestly amazing, I’m going to be using it for my travels to university and back as well as my longer journeys to London for blogging malarky. I don’t usually go for navy but this bag is just OOH, it’s too good – I wouldn’t usually mix navy/black either but I just can’t help it with this bag. Coming up next is a Tommy Hilfiger jumper (it is a colour not a shade what even am I turning into) and a gorgeous French Connection dress! Stay posted.

August Inspiration

aug inspo

Pictures all sourced from Tumblr.

Still no news on my memory card… so here’s this month’s inspiration post! I’m adoring snakeskin patterns and prints right now, as well as being desperate for a nice tailored white shirt! Bandana’s are my current game after spotting (and luckily enough winning) some kick-ass bandana shorts from SR Wear. Plenty of home inspo in here as well, seen as I’m moving away in September to finally live independantly at my university accomidation, I’m feeling so inspired throughout homewear and deco! Mind you, you can’t do much about the ugly blue carpet and strange patterned curtains…

New Vlog & An Apology/Moan

la

So here’s my vlog from The Edit Launch Party event I posted about a little while ago. It’s coming along with an apology for being so distant! As I’m currently trying to save up for university, I am working crazy hours and barely have any free time. The only free time I’ve had in a while was the other day – I took so many new pictures and planned so many posts but it was all still on my memory card. That memory card was in my boyfriend’s loan laptop while his was off getting fixed and we completely forgot to take it out before it was sent back. I’m currently in contact with Currys/PC World / Know How trying to track it down but all I’ve heard so far is that it wasnt in there.

So I’m pretty sure the driver isn’t going to rob a little blogger’s memory card so it must be there but all I’ve heard so far is that it’s not and it’s really stressing me out now. I have no time to do all of this again, and there was some really wicked photographs on there. So I’m so, so upset. I haven’t just lost one post I’ve loads loads and even a few new videos. I’m so sorry that I haven’t been up to speed with posting and stuff, but I promise you if I can’t track down this memory card I will find the time to do everything again. I’m so sorry to you guys that do take the time to read me rambling on and posing and actually get excited to see new posts. I love you ♥ Here’s a couple of my recent instapics/outfits to fill in some gaps.

Tttattoo Review

Remember those wet on tattoos you’d get in magazines as a child? How cool were they! This is the new, improved more sophistacted version! Tttattoo.com recently got in contact with me and explained what they are and offered to send me a temporary tattoo to review! What more awesome about this is when you order, you can create a custom one – using pictures they have or even finding a high quality image of the design you want (which is what I did with one of these!).

The design I chose was a flower in a sort of henna-like design. Unfortunately I couldn’t find the picture big enough anywhere so I had to have it smaller and change where I was going to put it which is fine and I love where it’s ended up! Here’s how you apply them (just the same as when you were young).

So first of all you cut as close to the tattoo design as you can (I couldn’t find thin enough scissors so I just left it but I definitely reccomend you do as it will help it look more realistic!). Then decide on where you want it to be printed onto your skin.

Then peel the plastic layer off the front of the paper and place face down on the skin. Then wet with a damp cloth and keep on there a good 10-30 seconds.DSC_1811

Then once you’ve let it stay wet for a while, peel off the white paper and see your design!DSC_1817

Here’s what I’ve ended up with! The tattoos show up quite shiny and bold when you first apply them. After a few hours they calm down and look awesome!

After 2 hours:

*These tattoos were sent for me to blog about, but my view is completely my own. As a lover of tattoos I’ve really enjoyed playing with these and it has helped me decided on what to get permenantley on myself. The only down was the placement of the tattoo on the neck, I wouldn’t recommened placing these temporary tattoos here as it’s somewhere you move alot – causes a lot of creasing!*

You can check these guys out for yourself at http://www.tttattoo.com

UPDATE: Just had a twenty minute shower around 3 hours after I applied the tattoos and they haven’t even budged!
