Oriental

132
(Jumpsuit: c/o in love with fashion, shoes & hat: Zara, Jacket: Jumble Sale)

How gorgeous is this jumpsuit?! I fell in love with the print as soon as I saw it. I can’t get enough of oriental prints at the moment, just as well I’m going to thailand, I can add to my collection! You can also get a 20% off discount if you buy this jumpsuit by quoting ‘FASHIONRUSH’ hurray!
It’s officially a week until I jet off exploring the world and I have only 1 scheduled post ready. Hmm… I’m going to try to take as many photos as I can this week but its stressing me out so much, I really want to keep my blog going whilst I’m away but its a lot of work. I’m going to be changing my blog when I come back anyway so expect very exciting things to come. I have to keep quiet for now but expect big changes from march. I really hope you will all still be interested in my blog when I come back!
big love x

(What I’m Wearing: Crop Top & Leggings: Kesh x American Apparel, Boots: Topshop, Earrings: Topshop, Bag: H&M)

So on Thursday night, the lovely Amy got me a plus 1 invite to the motel blogger party (bit upset I wasn’t invited in the first place seeing as I wear motel aaaallll the time) and boy was it fun! I met Amy early and we went for a little late lunch before the party and then went and got ready in costa round the corner, we were sat there with our drinks and make up all over the table (classy bloggers thats us!) and then headed to the party. We arrived at Professor Greens club Ink and were taken to the top floor where the motel party was being held, we drank a lot of champagne cocktails and gawped at the incredible glitzy new collection. Lucky for us the first 30 bloggers to get there got to choose an item of the new collection to be sent to us, you’ll have to wait and see what I got because I don’t even know myself as we had to leave a 1st choice, 2nd choice and a 3rd choice. Overall it was a really amazing night, got to see all my favourite bloggers and party with one of my favourite brands. Thank you motel!
The night didn’t finish there for me, after the event I went to stay with my friend Grace, we went for a little walk and I spotted my all time favorite djs bondax, we got a couple of photos and they very kindly they invited us to the redbull studios after party at corsica studios so we jumped in a cab with them and went raving with them! They also invited us to their gig the next day which they were doing with flume and oh my goodness it was incredible, I’ve been a fan for flume for a while but never seen anyone so good live. So all in all I've had the best couple of days ever. I can’t wait to move to London. It’s full of adventure.

How To Add Border To Post Titles

Add Border To Post Titles in Blogger: Let's play with CSS and change the border of post titles in Blogger.You may have noticed the blog titles comes with "text-decoration:none" by default , in simple words no style is applied to the titles of the Blog Posts.Actually we can change the post titles and can decorate it with different CSS properties but here we gonna apply the border ! Border can be "groove" , "Solid" , "dashed" , or "dotted" having a specific color code and number of pixels.Don't confuse , it is as easy as eating cake.
How To Add Border To Post Titles

How To Add Border To Post Titles

  • EDIT HTML
  • Search for post-title or .post or only "post"
  • Search until you find the selector "Post Title" as shown below

 
  • Look at the above snapshot i added there the border Property i.e "border:groove 1px and color" Change these values to your desired values and save the template.You can even change the color of the post title just by simply changing the color code of "COLOR" property in the above script.
  • However here we have selected the border color Groove having gray color and width 1pixel.
  •  That's it !!
 Note : In many templates the POST TITLE Selector is .post-title but if you can't find or if this selector is not available then you have to find the exact and matchable selector i.e the selector which matches with the class or ID defined in the div tags! 
 
What's Up : Actually this hack will add a gray color border to all the post titles having 1 pixel width ,actually it adds 5 stars to the beauty and style of template.It has no effect on blog loading speed.Stay Blessed ,Happy Blogging!

Who Ya Gonna Call?

3215
(Top: eBay, Skirt: Primark, Boots: Topshop, Jacket: Charity Shop, Bag: Zara)

I wore this outfit after halloween and thought it worked very well. Fuck da ghosts!
I was working from 4 am till 7 pm on halloween day and got home and just couldn’t be bothered to go out. I’ve spent every year trick or treating and I was really looking forward to going out and partying as a zombie but I felt too much like a literal zombie so I gave halloween a miss. Theres always next year right? and the next year, and the next year…
So quick update, its officially 3 weeks till I jet off to Thailand with my best friend. I’ll be gone for 3 months but don’t worry i’ve already got a few sceduled blog posts ready to go, i’m trying to get enough so theres a blog post each week. I’ve worked so hard on my blog and i’m not going to stop whilst I’m away. Hopefully ill find a little internet caff in thailand and ill update you all with my travels stories and maybe a couple of outfits but to be honest my plan is to get out the hippy trousers and live in a bikini so I don’t know how well outfit posts are going to go down. Can’t believe its only 3 weeks till I go. Beyond excited.

Kooples

IMG_3027IMG_3089IMG_3067IMG_3036
(Jacket: The Kooples, Necklace: Primark, Dress: Ebay, Boots: Zara, Sunnies: Asos)

Okay, so let me start on this jacket. The jacket. Some of you may know that I was lucky enough to go to beautiful Paris for my 18th birthday (thank you mama fashion rush) and of course we shopped till we dropped but mainly we went to the vintage shops which were similar to UK charity shop prices so everything was more or less £5/£10 so I ended up buying a lot for very little money. So one day after a big vintage stroll we came across a little kooples store and after seeing campaign after campaign in all the magazines I thought I would pop in and see what the fuss was about, completely understanding that there was no way I could afford anything. So I spotted this jacket at the corner of the shop and was drawn to it. It was the perfect biker jacket. Suede, silver hardware, ribbed details on the shoulders. Yeah, perfect. However the dream quickly disappeared when I found out the jacket of my dreams was £550. So I sadly walked out of the shop and wiped the memories of the beautiful jacket from my mind. But of course I couldn’t stop thinking about how much better my life would be if I owned the jacket. The next day was the day we were leaving Paris. With an hour till we had to leave our hotel we went to a local shopping centre to buy another suitcase (mum bought too many hats: I believe in total we brought back 10 new hats) and as we walked in we saw another kooples store so I quickly rushed in just to see if they had the jacket and I don’t know thought I should torture myself even more. I found the jacket, my size, half price. HALF PRICE. I died. I turned to my mum and was like this is fate. And the rest is history really…
