Hello New Arm Candy

Michael Kors Watch 

Who said you can't treat yourself every once in while? 
This gorgeous Michael Kors watch now has me as its proud owner, and it's defiantly worth every penny paid. I've been wanting a new watch for a long while, and Michael Kors watches along with DKNY have always been on top of the list and when I saw this beautiful MK one a couple months ago I just fell in love.
I am so chuffed with it, it's absolutely stunning and can't keep looking at it. 

What do you guys think?

Update | Life Lately

Hello everyone, sorry it's been a while, I am still here, just been a bit busy recently what with uni starting etc. but some exciting posts coming up soon I promise! Today just a quick update to show you this sweet bit of yummy-ness. You may or may not know it was my 20th on Monday and as you can see I got this cake, Orla (careful ios spellcheck) the owl to be precise, which I thought was defiantly worth sharing. Not quite the Percy pig one I had liked, but I think this tops that - just so cute, oh and tasty ofcourse! 

Anyway, I had a great day even though my first day of uni was on the same day, and I received some lovely gifts; perfume, clothes, accessories and gifts cards to name a few, some of which I will review in a separate post soon so stayed tuned!

That's all for now. What do you think of the cake?

The Ambitious Birthday Wishlist

 1. Mac Foundation | 2. Burberry Body | 3. Gift Card | 4. Michael Kors Watch |
5. Accessorize Handbag | 6. M&S Percy Pig Cake 
With it being my birthday a week today (23rd) I was thinking of all the perfect possible gifts one could want.... as you do. And from all of the things I could conjure up in the world, which altogether probably runs into thousands (haha), I have picked out a few modest-ish items which I really would love to receive; in an ideal world of course. Although unlikely to receive but one of these items, since I never request anything, I can always dream, or treat myself wink wink

What would be your perfect gift? Jewellery, clothes? Let me Know, I'd love to hear

P.s. How cute is the cake!!

A Store Can Awaken A Lust For Things You Never Even Knew You Needed.

I swore down I would try and save some of my money this month but when having a few hours to waste in the city after work I couldn't resist just having a quick look in the stores, and seeing what was new in for the Autumn. If it hadn't been for the pretty window displays I swear I wouldn't have gone in half of them. Honest!

Spot Shirt - Topshop
Really love this shirt. It's just so me. The colour is really nice and I love the length. As it's slightly fitted it's really flattering on, and looks great when worn with just a simple pair of black jeans or other bottoms. The material isn't sheer which you'd might expect, rather just a nice soft material which is quite thick. Bought for £38 (early birthday gift) which I think is rather ok considering the good quality and the fit. 

Plaid Shirt and Embossed Tee - Primark
Picked these up for super dirt cheap when cutting through Primark. The plaid shirt is bang on trend at the moment and I love how it's fitted and the 3 quarter length sleeves. Looks great when worn under my black pinafore. The embossed t-shirt with grey jersey texture sleeves and back is a simple but nice piece. I've always liked this embossed texture trend that's been floating about so when I saw this tee for a couple of pounds I thought why not. 

Soft Quilted 'Bunny' Jumper - Topshop
Had my eye on the jumper for a while. It must have been the first batch of the A/W arrivals as I remember seeing it sometime in the middle of summer. Set me back £40, quite expensive but it's just so gorgeous. The grey marl colour is really lovely and the quilted bunnies are just really sweet. Lovely soft knit and fits quite well. The drop shoulder design does give a bit of extra room under the arms but I got a smaller size so it didn't look so 'big'. Looking forward to wearing this when the colder weather sets in. 

What do you think of my purchases? I'd love to hear

Hello September, Hello New Things.

First and foremost, I just want to apologize for my lack of posting this past week. I have literally been so busy/tired/stressed. I managed to get myself a job at a big fashion store, (eeeek) and I've been in a lot for training and such in the week so haven't had the time to put a post together without coming across  like a boring zombie haha!

So, today I just wanted to share with you some recent purchases I have made in preparation for the colder months. As you know September is now upon us, which for me is good and scary at the same time. The good side is that I love getting into Autumn clothing, it's just so comfy and lovely and I prefer it to summer clothes, so that's nice, however I am also starting Uni soon which I am so worried about, and also I'm leaving my teenage years behind and hitting the big 20. Not at all old but still a big thing! I feel like I have come so far in the last few months, what with getting my college results, getting a job, getting into uni and other things. Now suddenly it's September I am like, whoah time flys! 

Black Cut-Out Ankle Boots - Mr. Shoes
Anyway, back on topic, the first of the items to talk about is this gorgeous pair of black cut-out ankle boots, which I am so in love with. The moment I saw them in the shop window I knew I had to have them. Bought from Mr. Shoes at just £29.99 I knew these had to be snapped up. I never used to shop in this store before but since last winter when I found the exact pair of boots I bought in Office for £70 in Mr.Shoes for £30, I always go in to make sure I'm not missing out on anything good.

These are super gorgeous with both black jeans and something like a skater skirt or my following item, and I think the cut-out style is just so eye catching. The silver tip on the toe caps is also a nice addition!

My next purchase is this cute pinafore playsuit from Urban Outfitters. This purchase was actually influenced by another blogger, so thank you to them. It took me absolutely ages to find the perfect one online. I didn't like the ones with open backs, so luckily found this one which had a supported back. It cost me just £30 and was the last in my size so that was lucky. Wearable for both summer and winter, but I look forward to wearing with tights and boots and something like a plaid shirt underneath. You can see images online of Alexa Chung rocking one of these on many occasions, and they look great. 

Pinafore Playsuit - Urban Outfitters
In addition to the above, I also bought a black skater skirt for £12 which I had been umming and arring about for a while. I was never sure whether one would suit me, but after some thought I just took the chance and bought one and thankfully after getting some used to I really like it. I've never been one for skirts, as I felt they made me look like I'm of school age,  but I don't feel that way know, and super love my skater skirt.

So then, that's that. What are your thoughts on these items? What are you buying this Autumn? Let me know. I appreciate all comments.
