There is something about leopard print that I just cannot grow out of. It brings back such vivid memories of the Emo/Scene days when I had endless leopard things in my wardrobe, I had these amazing leopard print velor (!!) flats which I bought on my first ever shopping trip with my friends. And I found these adorable leopard print moccasins in Primark last year and totally regret not buying 100 more pairs because I wore them to death. I still try and wear them even though they are DISGUSTING condition. Speaking of being Emo you can really see my piercing scar in the last image. I had a lip and a Monroe pierced when I was 16, Both of which haven't healed properly even though I've had them out for at least 3 years now. I don't really notice them anymore because they are just part of my face. But kids, Don't get facial piercings Mmkay?

My boyfriend bought me this leopard print mac from H&M for my birthday. I'd be eying it up for a while, So was happy when I unwrapped it! Ive been struggling for ideas of what to wear with it though. All I can think of is wearing black? So kinda opted for a "Rock Chic" (God I hate that phrase but you all know what I mean, right!?) This Mick/Marianne sleeveless top was worn by everyone under the sun when it was released by Topshop last year, and I haven't worn it in such a long time for that reason. Decided to pull it out again though. And obviously I wore my Babbooshka Boutique Turban!

The ring is possibly my favourite thing I've bought this week! I saw it on ASOS on the weekend, and since they decided to do free shipping for all customers, Well Super Saver Delivery, and I'm one of those people who get sucked in because shipping is FREEFREEFREE! I actually refused to buy anything from ASOS until they started doing free returns.


I started making a body chain yesterday but didn't get enough chain so that DIY project will be put on hold until I can get more curb chain! What does everyone think of body chains/harness. Rumi and Queen Michelle pull it off nicely, But we shall have to see what it looks like on me. I can imagine wearing it with little plain dresses in the summer to toughen them up! Let me know what you think in the comments!

    I agree with the piercing thing! I had exactly the same piercings and still have the scars to show it :( Wish they would just dissapear! Or I wish I could go back and tell my thirteen year old self not to waste money on them! xo

  5. Your hair is so pretty. I am totally regretting having my long locks chopped off, ugh. Anyway! You'd definitely be able to pull off a body chain. And yes, they'd create an awesome contrast to pretty/flowy summer dresses (:

  12. I never really understood the concept of body chains till recently. :) and with the piercing I tried to tell my friend not to get one either but she ended up doing it anyway lol. I wish there were more people like you out there to tell "youngins" not to get these random piercings just because.
    -ps im working up some courage to try body chains now because of what I just read lol =]
