Valentine's Day Wishlist

Being one of the days where heartfelt outburts, love and sharing is most prominent, surely a little self-gifting wouldn't be out of place? However you're spending the 14th of February, be sure to have a little scroll through my Banggood wishlist to gain some inspiration as to how you might treat yourself this V-day...


Which is your favourite?

The less I know the better

blazer - H&M
crop - Primark
trousers - vintage
heels - Allsaints
necklace - Front Row Shop

Exams and assessments done for the semester. Naturally, I headed straight to Liverpool one having barely put down my pen - a haul of the things I picked up will feature in due course.
For the time being drinks and catching up on several series is on the agenda - in perhaps the most boardroom appropriate going out ensemble I have put together. Despite appearances, I am not actually moonlighting at a corporate recruitment agency..

What do you like to wear on an evening out?

Puss in Boots


boots - Light in the Box
jumper - vintage
hat - Missguided
 I cannot express how long I have wanted some knee high boots. Over the last few months they found themselves upon my lust list and I would constantly inform others about their place in my heart (mainly on nights out asking tipsy girls in toilets where they got theirs.) However, partly being financially stretched and partly fearing looking like Dick Wittington, I was unable to commit.
Thankfully, Light in the Box came to my rescue. When asked to pick two items, and seeing these two beauties, I could obviously not resist.
 Hopefully I can now emulate all of those street style goddesses and instagram divas, regardless of whether I look pantomime worthy.
Would you wear knee high boots?

You don't own me

jumper, jeans & coat - H&M
bag - Primark
boots - ebay

Well, long time no speak. I hope everyone's Christmas and New Year has been as magical as mine, filled with food and my favourite people. 2015 has definitely been one of the best years so far, with so many surprises and things working out so wonderfully, I have high hopes for 2016 (fingers crossed).
I am however feeling a little misdirected at the moment, sparing you of excessive metaphors, I am totally unsure whether to do an MA at university. In all honesty I have never known what I want to do. Or rather, I want to do too many things. Write a book, be an artist, a photographer, graphic designer..
Maybe I'll just try them all and see which fails the least miserably?
Any tips would be highly appreciated :)

What would your dream career be?

Please, do tell.

sweatshirt - She In
jeans and coat - H&M
bag - vintage
boots - ebay
hat - Missguided
This is one of those 'I really didn't try, but it kinda looks like I did' outfits. I am so very impressed by this She In sweatshirt I'd included in my last wishlist, so much so that I just had to buy it. The minimal colour scheme, clean print and sarcastic slogan? How could I resist?
It was also sheer luck that it was the exact shade as my beloved H&M coat. Let's hope that luck stays with me over exam time..
What would be your ideal sweatshirt slogan?

You give me purpose

jumper - CNDirect
scarf - CNDirect
jeans - H&M
coat - Vintage
boots - ebay
Two days until the most festive month is upon us and there is certainly a frosty chill in the air. How lucky I was to be sent a couple of super cosy pieces from CN Direct to further satisfy my need for scarves and knitwear.
This mustard fisherman jumper adds a nice little warm pop of colour to my very monochrome wardrobe and the scarf, ft. a reversible houndstooth print can blend in or shine in all it's tartan glory.
Is everyone feeling Christmassy yet? I think I am a mince pie away from wrapping myself in fairy lights and watching Elf on repeat i.e. a day well spent.
P.s. (Controversial, but has anyone listened to JB's new album? I am scared I might become a *shivers* belieber at this rate)

Gold digger

jacket - SheIn
top - Primark
jeans - Blue Spice
boots - ebay

Neutrals, greys, khakis, creams and of course, black. I.e. the dream colour scheme. This was the apparent genius behind Yeezy's collection, the idea that you can pair any two items and they will match with ease.

And I am 100% jumping on this minimalist bandwagon to maybe inspire some sort of order to my overflowing wardrobe. 

SheIn are always my go-to for unique wintery pieces and their sweatshirt game is on point. Like, really. Here are some of my favourites i.e. threatening my finances. Minimalism plan off to a good start.

Which is your favourite?


P.s. I would also like to mention my devastation at the tragic events in Paris as well as the atrocities that are constantly going on globally due to a minor group of warped individuals. They are not an entire religion, or a force to be reasoned with but they will be stopped and we will reach a time when events like these become a rarity rather than a trending twitter topic.
Stay safe, wherever you are <3
