Tonights my housemate and best pal's birthday so we're off to Central for food and cocktails. I literally cannot wait. I've been trying to rest up today and fingers crossed I'll be alright going out for a bit. I made a feeble attempt to go out last night but lasted a few hours before heading back home.

My Mum bought me this gorgeous Michael Kors watch for Christmas! Literally my eyes popped out of my head when I saw it as I unwrapped my gifts! I mentioned in a video ages ago I was going to buy myself one in the new year but she must have seen and kindly purchased it for me! I was undecided on rose gold or silver but I'm glad she picked the rose gold as it's just perfect and every bit as gorgeous as I'd imagined. I know they are a bit done now the whole Michael Kors watch thing, but you cant deny it's a thing of beauty! LOVELOVELOVE!

primark alphabet shirt
topshop harriet shoes
maybelline ceramic blue* & technic carnival nail polish
makeup see this post
The first day back in the city hasn't been as easy as I thought it would be. Im super tired and really could do with a big rest, but I wanna keep busy. I have a stinking cold to match my extreme fatigue so Im failing at life right now. I bought this shirt a few weeks ago from Primark and I haven't worn it until today, I actually like it a hell of a lot more on than I do off. I don't generally like sheer things but I've made an exception for this one. The alphabet print is pretty unique (although I saw somewhere alphabet is a print that's going to be big this spring summer?) and I quite like the sleeves too. I wore a plain black top underneath because I don't own a white cami (mad I know!) but I'm okay with it!

001. Im back in London! Im still really sick , I've been to the doctors but they insist I just have a virus and all I need to do is rest. Unfortunately I have work commitments this week so I've had to come back. I might go back again but it just depends on how ill I am. I think I'm going to go down the doctors here in London and demand a blood test or something!
002. I ordered a ton on American Candy a few days ago and Im eagerly awaiting its arrival! There are so many things I've been dying to get my grubby little paws on I could resist no longer! Someone on my Facebook page mentioned that Crystal Lite bought out a Mojito flavour and I just needed it in my life! Alongside my new addiction for Iced Tea and my love of all things Reeses!
003. Fashion week preparations are in full swing. Invites are trickling in and outfits are being conjured up in my head. I always whine about London fashion week but I know Im blessed that I actually get to live the dream and attend shows! Fashion week is generally like nothing you'll ever experience ever. It's amazing, intense and overwhelming all at the same time. Im hoping for Felder Felder and Moschino Cheap and Chic again as they were my favourites from last season. I have big plans for this season and Im determined to get a ton of cool content to share on here and my beauty blog! Ill be covering some backstage stuff as well for the first time which is pretty darn exciting!
004. Currently toying with the idea of upgrading my camera to a Canon 650d. I have the 500d at the moment and although I love it I think having a flip screen will help me loads with my YouTube Stuff. I have had my current camera for about a year now and don't know if its worth upgrading or not! Tricky!

I nabbed this jacket at the Next Ones to watch shoot I did a few weeks ago and promtly added it to my wardrobe. I've always wanted one of these "Chanel" Style boucle jacket's but I've never really found the one that fit my look right. They can be a touch ageing I think when styled the wrong way but I've got nothing but love for this one! The monochrome mix is just gorgeous and it makes the perfect texture for the jacket. It's thick and surprisingly warm for just a little jacket. It feels super luxe on as well which makes me feel glamourous. I wore this outfit out for dinner with my friends Matt and Dal at the Banana Tree last week. I wanted something semi dressy incase we went on for drinks but also casual enough for dinner. This fitted the bill perfectly.
PS. Spot the ladder in my tights! Bloody fake nails! I promptly changed them after ;)

LBD's are my favourite thing to wear, and this one from Monki is no acceptation. It's a beautiful simple A line shape which is super flattering. I'm not the biggest fan of my arms so the three quarter length sleeves are just perfect for covering up my least favourite area. I wear this dress quite a lot because it's just so basic and can be worn in literally so many ways!
Outfit one is a cute casual, shopping or running errands. It's the kind of thing that can be worn all the time and just chucked on and go. I choose the leather sleeved and boucle jacket because I liked the way they added texture into a simple look. I added the hat as I felt it need something a little bit extra, and lets face it I love a good hat!
Second outfit is more of a date or drinks outfit. It's charming and sweet without being too much, the perfect mix between casual and dressy. I've actually worn this exact outfit on a date before (and I think my housemate has as well) because it's something thats just fool proof. The blazer gives the look a touch of colour and a feminine touch and the colours compliment the neon pop of the Primark necklace. I personally have no qualms with wearing all black, but a statement or patterned blazer is a great way too add a little bit of interest to a look.
The third outfit is something I've already featured on this blog, but I wore in on a night out when I went to a posher place than our local pub! Kitten heels are something I never thought I'd get into but I have to admit they have really grown on me. I really like the pointed toe as it elongates the leg and makes me feel much slimmer than I am. I kept the look monochrome, as it's a huge for S/S. Im pretending I'm fashion forward as I've been doing it for years.

Topshop Allegera Boots
Office Lace Up Boots
Topshop Alvin Boots
ASOS Athens Boots*
I'd say these four are my all time favourites. Topshop Allegera's gained a cult following about a year ago with everyone literally going crazy for them. Dupes started to appear all over the internet and in the high street shops to replicate and they became a very popular shoe choice. I wore these to death for the latter half of 2011 and way into 2012. Mine are looking very battered these days but there is nothing a good shine with some boot polish cant fix. I almost forgot how much I loved these boots until recently and I'm so glad I gave them another chance! My Office lace up boots were purchased with a voucher that I won WAY back when I won the Look Magazine Blogging competition when this blog was still in its infant days. I wanted them for a while but kept putting off purchasing them, until one day I popped into the Office store in Worcester and there they were, size 5 in the sale. I practically skipped to the till. They remind me of Victorian lace up boots, with a classic edge. These look great in the summer paired with little dresses and girly ankle socks.
I purchased the Topshop Alvin's after years of pining after the infamous Office Nighthawks just didn't do it for me. They have a certain cowboy charm to them with all the buckles and the studs. The heel height is perfect for any situation and I've worn these during the day, to meetings, to clubs and even to gigs. I cannot fault these boots at all. ASOS Athens boots are your basic flat Chelsea boots. However they have a simplistic and minimalist edge which I just adore. They are my current go-to boots for when it's snowy or rainy. I feel they add a really manly, military, grunge edge to any outfit and are super comfy.
