Hey guys! this is yesterday’s post, as I completely ran out of time last night, and by the time I got round to thinking about it, it was almost 12! Way too late.
so yesterday I went out for a very late lunch/dinner with my mum, we were supposed to go out about 1/2, however she went out for a hen do, on the Saturday night, and texted me Sunday saying...'I was very twisted last night, and I’m still being sick' god bless my mother! So we ended up going out at 5.30! And I wore my new Aztec top from Asos, with black leggings and my topshop studded boots!
Todays; well today I have lots of college work to do... blah, as it’s my Huddersfield interview in a week tomorrow, and my portfolio isn’t completed yet! I have lots of 'tarting' up to do! Wish me luck ... maybe post a few pictures of my finished work later on tonight!
Anybody else got uni interviews?

also i thought id share with you the top 5 things that i want! the zara bag is just to beautiful i'v been wanting a tan bag for ages, and i came across this whilst on the zara website, and i instantly fell in love! but for the price of £79.99 i might have to wait a little bit... however the daisy chain bracelet omg, i love it, daisys are my favourite flower (if anybody wants to send me some) and when i saw it i knew i had to have it.. so iv been throwing hints at my boyfriend for valentines day, and for the price of £15.00 how can you go wrong?!

happy friday!

striped jumper- republic
heart locket - H samuel (gift)

Just a quick snap of me before I left for work today! I would have done a full outfit post but I didn’t have much time for pictures today!

I’m currently waiting for New Girl to start on channel4 +1! I love love love new girl! Zoey Deschanel is my new girl crush, she is just so cute, and has such perfect style and hair! Anybody else feeling the love?

I’ve currently been reading Fashion Design, by Sue Jenkyn Jones, hoping it will help me out with my interview at Huddersfield, I’ve found it so interesting! So if anybody has any interested in Textiles or Fashion this book is great! I'm only half way through and it’s helped me out dramatically!

chanel spring/summer

Hi all! I just thought I’d share with you my top 4 from the Chanel spring/summer couture collection. The first one is most defiantly my favourite! Its so 1920's and I love it, if it wasn’t wayyyyy out of my price range I would own this. Chanel never fails to please me. Even after everything Karl Lagerfeld, slagged off Adele. Only to apologise later on...

"I'd like to say to Adele that 'I am your biggest admirer,'" he told the Metro. "Sometimes when you take a sentence out of the article it changes the meaning of the thought. What I said was in relation to Lana Del Rey and the sentence has since been taken out of context from how it was originally published. I actually prefer Adele, she is my favourite singer and I am a great admirer of her. I lost over 30 kilos over 10 years ago and have kept it off. I know how it feels when the press is mean to you with regards to your appearance. Adele is a beautiful girl. She is the best. And I can't wait for her next CD."
