Today I had a really bad day, you know the ones when just everything goes wrong? Yup, it was one of those days. However I came home and remembered my first delivery from Graze was here!
Graze is this company that send you cute little snack boxes for only around £4 and the first box is half price!
In my graze box i got: Tom yum yum rice crackers, Super berry detox mix, Apple and Cinnamon Flapjack and Lightly toasted pistachios.
The rice crackers were a bit too spicy for me but ahh the rest was lush!
I really recommend it. Also if you leave a comment down below with your email I will send you a little code to get your first box free! Yey!

Heres the website: https://www.graze.com/

Sorry I haven't posted in a while been real busy,
Love,

Outfit of da day

SONY DSCSONY DSC

SONY DSCSONY DSC

(Booties: Topshop, Jeans: Topshop, Blazer: Car boot sale (5p!!!!!!) Fur: Gift)

I have finally mastered photoshop. It has taken me a while (nearly 2 years) but I now know pretty much everything to do with photoshop. Hopefully my photos will start turning out more ‘professional’.

Its so cold at the moment, makes me want to cry. In the morning it does make me cry actually, the wind gets in my eyes and my eyes start to water, so I end up at the train station with make up everywhere. Believe me, this is not a good look.

Oh and 5p blazer, how wicked is that?! and its suade. LOVE IT.

Weekend

kool 346

I did a photoshoot with my friend izzy, she nicely braved the cold and let me take pictures of her in the freezing weather! This is the result of one of the pictures.

kool 020kool 010

Got a bit addicted to desperate housewives, the first season. My friend lent me the box set and I cant stop! Its so good. Also been eating way to much ice cream recently… It accompanies desperate housewives brilliantly.

itig2itig1kool 372

and pictures of me in the frosty grass where i took pictures of my friend, she thought it was only fair she took some pictures of me too! Boring outfit, just grabbed whatever my eyes could focus on at 10 in the morning!

Hope your having a brill monday.
Up next is a little outfit post.
Thinking of doing a little D.I.Y project too… Would you guys like to see that on the blog?

Love

I Want Some Tardys


(picture from weheartit.com)

I have fallen in love with the Jeffery Campbell tardy’s. They are so perfect, desperate to get my hands on a pair. preferably in this gorgeous red colour. The cheapest i can find is £130… anyone know where i can get them for cheaper? £130 is a little out of my budget!

Love,

New In

blog 002

spike earrings: Miss Selfridge £5

blog 012

Rimmel Nail varnishes in Black Cherries and Black Out £2.99 each

blog 015

Pink jumper from Urban Outfitters in sale £25

Im loving dark nail varnishes at the moment and anything studded. I think studs put such an edge into any outfit. I wear my stud earrings with this pink jumper as it makes it less girly.

Hope your having a good weekend my lovelies xoxox
