So it's been a fair while since I've been around here. For multiple reasons, that I won't get into, I wasn't able to get posts up the last month or so and to be frank, it may be slow for another little while from here on out but I'm determined to try my best!
So I'm not one for news years resolutions to be honest. Personally I think if you were really going to do something successfully you would have done it or at least tried already...but hey, you do you!
I'm currently typing this on my phone using my 3G because I don't have wifi! (I know, struggles) but I wanted to get a post up so I did my best to get my mini tripod out and get the grain-iest photos possible. Apologies on that front, this was honestly the best I could do. Gotta' work with what you have, eye?
But I stil keeping things relevant to the Christmas theme I guess..this is an outfit that I would definitely wear on a night out and what better night than New Years Eve! You could throw on a nice shirt to cover up a bit more but still have the lace detail or you could pair this with any sparkle, sequins or glittery top to jazz it up a bit!
On a separate note, thank you to all of you guys for the support over the last year and a bit. I feel like I've a bit more direction for the blog in the coming year so hopefully things will be bigger and better!
P.s HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Veganism. Chances are you're hearing that word with a negative connotation so this is a slightly more contoversial topic for today and I guess I should state the usual disclaimer that I'm not trying to ram veganism down anyones throats or come accross as agressive I'm just simply sharing what I've learned,why I think it makes sense and the misinterepretation the majority of people have about it.
protein or at least from the wrong sources but thats another story..
Now once you let that cruelty sink in, you realise that this milk is intented to make a 500 pund calf into a 1500 pound fully grown cow, right? Therefore it's got to be loaded with hormones and chemicals to grow the CALF, just like our own mother's did with us when we were babies. Along with this you have the bacteria and contamination that spreads during the milking process which tends to produc e pus, scientifically called stomatic cells. These are produced when there's an infection that the body trys to fight by producing this pus. Just like when we have a cut or indeed a spot. So basically you're drinking bactera, hormone infected pimple breast milk! Yuk!
To see what exactly it is that I eat, I've written two posts on "what I eat in a day"- Here and Here!

So naturally I've found myself addicted to wearing my new Boohoo bomber. You can mix it with anything and it comes pretty well, and it definitely adds something to any outfit, an edgy vibe or a pop of colour. My mission of incorporating more colour into my wardrobe is still underway. Pretty much with any money I have to spend on clothes I spend it on as much colour as possible!
With the colder weather coming in and the winter pieces in full swing in the shops, they are filled with deep, rich colours so at the moment I've been eyeing up mostly pastel colours as that's all that there seems to be in the shops. That said, before you know it we'll have spring upon us once again sure so maybe I'm better off embracing it , right?

So my question for you today is what do you think of when you look back at the 90s era?
Well for me, I instantly think of the obvious 90s fashion staples like holographics, chunky shoes and chokers but I also look to the style icons of the time. The likes of Kate Moss,Johnny Depp, The spice girls, Nirvana, not to mention the ultimate 90s throwback of Saved by the bell, Friends, Sabrina the Teenage Witch..the list goes on. These guys were the epitome of the 90s and lets face it we all miss Friends from our daily lives!
It's from these icons that the fashion staples of the era were establish. Denim on denim, crop tops, dungarees, mini skirts, tops under dresses and leather jackets became the "it" pieces for your wardrobe. With that in mind Boohoo have collaborated with the
fabulous Charlotte otherwise known as Charli XCX on a 90s themed collection #CharliXCX4Boohoo
I honestly love when celebrities collaborate with online, affordable brands, it makes it so much more accessible for the rest of us to get our hands on some pieces! The collection is very much grunge meets girly, which I love and they've got some gorge pieces! From holographic pieces to animal prints to pops of colour! Just see for yourself here!
So the lovely people at Boohoo let me pick out an outfit I pretty much just tried to sum up all of the above. Grunge meets girly girl meets sports luxe with colour, oversized pieces and mixed textures. This look would look perfect with some Doc Martens too but sadly I had none so I had to do without this time. That said, the jacket is the perfect size and is actually super warm while the skirt adds a nice amount of texture.
Thanks again to Faith and all of the Boohoo team for this opportunity!

So last sunday myself and Zara headed out to see 1D in the flesh. Yep, this is where I'm at- NO REGRETS...anyway we didn't do the whole "queuing up for 12 plus hours" malarky and still had a decent enough spot in the crowd.
Now first off, this was the first time I've ever been to a 1D gig, secondly they're real?!
I've probably been standing to more concerts than I've been sitting so with that in mind, I can definitely say that 1D fans are something else!
I was buzzing for each song considering I hadn't even heard Kiss You live let alone Drag Me Down or any of their current songs so I don't have many pictures because well, I was way too busy enjoying the actual show!
With all of this in mind I recreated the outfit I wore that night, because well with all the excitment I kind of forgot to take photos on the night. I planned on getting proper photos but the wheather appeared to think otherwise! Anyhow, I basically wanted to try and channel their style a little bit but without much effort and without spending a fortune (we don't all have money for ysl, Harold) I did a post on taking style inspiration from Harry which you can catch here!
Now if my Adidas trainers still fitted me it all would have "wrked out" and I would have had a bit more of a Larry vibe (oi oiii) but sure I took the "chonce" anyway. So I've got a funky shirt thats pretty much wide open with some long chains and some pointed shoes for some Harry inspo.
All in all, I dare anyone to go to one of their gigs and not enjoy it..
What would you wear to a concert?

Very much a chilled post compared to my last (which you can catch here) this time around.
In an effort to gather more colourful pieces in my wardrobe I bought this sky blue jumper which I surprisingly love. I'm not usually one for blue pieces unless they're a really deep,rich shade as I tend to find that blue kind of washes me out and can seem a bit cold to be honest.
That said, I figured it was a nice piece to start off with. I've recently put myself on a spending ban for anything black so as a first purchase I thought this was a decent option. Granted, I know I'm wearing this with pretty much all black but..baby steps,baby steps..
Have you put yourself on any spending bans lately?

I've got a formal outfit this time round for a change. But first off, I've got a legit question: how in the world do models wear heals on the runway? Honestly, anything that has my foot at a 90 degree angle with anything less than a chunky heel, kills me. I lasted about an hour in these shoes before I died. Without being too dramatic, it was pretty much a calve workout and I still felt the muscle pain days after! Pretty much convinced it was a workout...
Aside from that though I had a pretty good night. I don't think anyone can resist a good formal occasion sometimes. In this instance it was my debs/prom and basically the final hurdle as regards school related events. I'm not quite sure how much wear I'll get out of this dress but regardless it was a worth it!
Have you had your debs/prom yet?
