Twit twooo

Well, I am more than just a little bit excited.  Just writing this post has reminded me of how little things really can entertain me...and this week, they come in the form of four wonderful birdy mugs. Now I hear you say: "How are mugs so exciting?" And I would reply with: "They are just simply amazing."- Here's the thing, they aren't even from a glamorous and exciting shop. They were purchased from none the less: A supermarket. This is the story:
 I had clocked this pack of four beautiful pastel mugs with printed birds on ages ago just after Christmas. They were reduced to about £7.50. In my head (as I am a poor old student.). This was just far too extravagant on my small budget. But I just wanted them so bad. This led to me going in, looking and walking out of the shop empty handed for the next week. But just when all hope was lost, I walked in the week after, and there it was in all its glory... the word REDUCED again. This time they were only £4.50. To me I took this as a sign and snapped them up. So there it mug story!
I just think they are so pretty, the perfect size and in my favourite pastel tones. It just shows it pays to wait!

Hope you are all well :)

Cameo galore

This weekend was one of pure laziness... with a hint of organisation! The university term is starting again tomorrow. This meant I had an excuse to completely rearrange my desk and get my sketch book and all that jazz ready!  I must say that it looks top notch!
As well as organizing, I wore out my new cameo necklace.  I just adore it. Its covered with sparkles,  cameos and pearls (all my fav things). I kept the outfit simple with it, wearing a pearly metallic strap top and paired with black skinnies and cute little pumps.  I find that wearing a simple outfit with statement jewellery really works for me. Finding that perfect piece can make the outfit!
Hope you all had wonderful weekends :)

My weekend away

So this weekend has been perfect!I went to stay in a gorgeous sea front hotel in Bournemouth. Although at points I thought I was actually going to freeze to death, the day itself was beautifully clear and bright. Some may say picture perfect!  While we were there we saw the cutest most miniture doggy I have ever seen!I was slightly concened as it was sand coloured and blended in perfectly with its surroundings. However it seemed extremely happy trotting along the sea front without a care (as was I).
On the way home I couldn't help myself and purchased a miss selfridge dress and bracelet that I have had my eyes on for ages! It'll look great dressed up with heels or down with ankle boots and leather jacket.  Cannot wait for its first outing!
What did you all get up to this week?

Lazy afternoon

Recently I have been super busy with uni hand ins. But finally me and my group have completed our 40 page retail trend and range plan! Although it feels amazing to have finished, I faced that 'now what?'  Feeling. Luckily it did not take me long to decide. Bring in a cuppa, my cosy bed and a good book and I was sorted for the afternoon...lush!
Oooh and heres also an image of my cute new alarm clock. I feel like I am fresh out of the John lewis christmas advert (of which I still love!)

My friend Julia

Happy new year.
So here it is... the saddest blog post written by anyone or anything...a blog about my new Giraffe. Yes I know I am a 20 year old student but it is just the cutest hand made toy ever! I have always loved Giraffes, and luckily my sister knows me far too well and decided I should have my very own hand made one! Don't get me wrong I can sleep at night without her but she just adds that beaut shabby chic touch to my room! 
Oh and excuse the silly Christmas hats and daddy Gazza smiling uncontrollably in the background (it was christmas after all!).
Hope you all had a wonderful christmas :)
