defeated no more






top - Motel Rocks
kimono - ebay
jeans - Primark
boots- ebay
necklaces - the magic ones


My mum informed me I looked like someone who was about to go and tell fortunes when I went out in this a few evenings ago. I can't help but stick to my monochrome comforts, but the celestial print mixes things up a little and I was lucky to find the crop on ebay for a pleasing £6 :)
Also hugely pleased with these pretty pieces from the magic ones, the camera really cannot capture the colours of the opal pendant.. Will definitely be purchasing more!

Won't look back





top & jewellery - Primark
jeans - Zara
blazer - H&M
boots - ebay
hat - Missguided

Super simple black and grey ootd just paired with pretty silver jewellery. I also enjoy how throwing a blazer over the top of anything has the power to make me feel formal and that I have an important meeting to attend. In this instance the meeting was actually drinks with some lovely friends, but that still counts, right?

Anyway, it's (*sigh*) almost time to get back into the swing of education after this gorgeously long summer, so am stocking up on A/W basics before I head back to Liverpool.

Have a look at my 'back to school' lookbook  on YouTube if you fancy.. Not sure how I feel about uploading videos myself, I'm certainly not cut out for talking to a camera so am sticking with lookbooks for now..
Please let me know what you think! :)



Finally I feel a little tumblr inspiration is in order..

hooked on a feeling

Forgive my lack of blogging, but I have been gallavanting across the channel to drink far too much wine and eat far too many pastries/cheeses/baguettes.. (can you really ever eat too many baguettes?)
Anyway, holiday related/picture heavy post is on it's way, but I had to post about the parcel on my doorstep when I returned home.




The Rainbow Club create gorgeous handmade ivory shoes, namely aimed at blushing brides rather than impoverished bloggers. However, they also offer a bespoke service which means you get these beauties dyed in just about any colour to match a dress, piece of jewellery or whatever takes your fancy. I am not about to make my way down any aisle (aside from Sainsburys) but was of course on board to choose a pair to test out when I was very kindly asked to do so.



I opted for the style 'Georgie Girl' because of the delicate lace detailing and, shock horror, in a timeless black shade which will conveniently match just about everything I own.
Firstly, how pretty?!
The shoes came wrapped so neatly in this beautiful cherub decorated packaging and I was hesitant in trying them on as they looked so content in the box. 
Once I did however, I was once again impressed by the detail, quality and comfort. I am contemplating how nice a spectrum of heels would look in my wardrobe.
I think my trusty wedges may have to take a back seat for a while.

Don't wanna be your girl


shirt - Zara
jeans - H&M
shoes - Dorothy Perkins
hat - Missguided
sunglasses - ebay

Life is currently consisting of meandering through life, soaking up sunny weather and wearing sunny-ish appropriate clothing.








Also took a brief excursion to London and I can safely say salted caramel macarons are potentially among the top three things I've ever eaten. That was strangely the only thing I purchased (shock horror) as the rest of the day was spent being a tourist.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer as much as I am :)

P.S. it's also your last chance to enter the Pizza Slut giveaway if you fancy!

Bare wall in distress?

Being a lover of graphic design in it's many glorious forms, I am often scrolling through tumblr/threadless/etsy browsing through potential wall decorations for (hopefully) future homes.
Given a nudge in the right direction by a friend, I was introduced to the wonders of









From creating quirky wall art to gig posters for some of my favourite bands (lusting after that black keys print), the work of  husband and wife team Beth Manos Brickey and Mark Brickey is highly sought after.To check out their etsy store, click here.

The fact they're also based in California is giving me serious overall lifestyle envy.
