You know our love would be tragic

jumper - George
jeans - H&M
coat - GAP
boots - ebay
bag - vintage
rings - ebay

Thoroughly enjoying these 24 hour bursts of sunshine we are currently experiencing in England. It allows me to opt for a jumper and duster coat as opposed to my usual multi-layer attire.
I actually picked up this coat a couple of years ago at a charity shop for a detective role in a play and rediscovered it the other day. An attachment is growing, I should definitely get back in to the thrift shopping scene (cue that song being stuck in your head for eternity) as real gems can be found.

What are your thoughts on charity shopped items?

Living on a prayer

jumper - Sheinside
jeans - Blue Spice
boots - ebay
hat - Missguided
bag - vintage

Feeling ~60's art student vibes~ in this jumper Sheinside have kindly sent me and have decided it may be my ideal aesthetic. Speaking of the 60's, I actually spent last night in the infamous cavern club watching a Bon Jovi tribute with my mother which was a+. Pretty sure she approved of a mother's day gift which included cocktails, live music and photo taking opportunities a plenty;)

I see fire

top & jeans - H&M
bag - Primark
shoes - The Rainbow Club
hat - Missguided

I've been looking for an item with this print for a while, though little did I expect to see it whilst scrolling through H&M's sale for £5! Even if it turned out I hated it, £5 seemed a reasonable gamble. I actually do rather like it thankfully, even if not season suitable just yet. (Though the water reflection print seems very apt where the weather is concerned.)

An article I recently wrote has been very kindly featured in the amazing new online magazine TNF - I feel honoured to have my words next to those of some amazingly talented women - so I encourage you to take a peek (I'm on p. 53 if interested ;) 

P.S. If you haven't already check out the Kygo version of Ed Sheeran's 'I See Fire' <3

Your protector

crop - ebay
blazer - H&M
jeans & necklace - Primark
boots - ebay

High waisted jeans and a crop are becoming my first choice of attire for an eve out. I feel like it's the easier and more comfortable option, for me anyway, despite sometimes looking rather formal.
Also super impressed by this £3 (!) Primark necklace - they had some gold variations so will have to check those out asap.  

What are your night-out-outfit preferences?

P.S. Am also selling these cute silver nail rings on my depop and ebay so check them out if you fancy :)

The name's Bond, Ms Bond..

007 fragrance*

It's not something I mention on here often, but I am a fan of all things fragrance related. I could spend hours in the yankee candle shop, Jo Malone or examining the perfume counters of Selfridge's. There's something about those chandelier-d ceilings and decadent gold cases that take me back to being 12 years old and being amazed by the opulence of a department store. 

The 007 perfume seems to capture this glamour in fragrance form within a pretty black bottle. If you're looking for a new signature scent, I would definitely recommend checking this one out..
It's scent is almost smoky, with blackberry, vanilla and cedarwood; with each spritz I am envisioning myself as the lead girl alongside Mr Connery (see images below).

So naturally I obviously now want to overline my eyes and wear the darkest red lipstick I can find so I can look as fierce as I'm feeling. Who needs a Mr Bond when Ms would get the job done in half the time? Don't need to bother with revolvers when you've got stilettos anyway..

*Recently, I was lucky enough to get involved with Trnd - where you can try out new products, feed back honest opinions and share with others. As always, any opinions I give on here will be mine - I will only choose to share things with you that I actually like! :')

better times

jumper - TU 
jeans - Zara
scarf - Oasap
hat - Missguided
shoes and bag - Primark

This is one of those outfits that's so simply put together but makes me feel like I've made a little effort aka, the best kind.

Oh, I also make a video if you fancy killing a few minutes :)

Fake Empire

sweater - She Inside
jeans - Blue Spice
boots - Zara
bag - Primark
hat - Missguided
rings - Topshop

Unfortunately I was somewhat delayed in getting my hands on any of the H&M x Wang collection (namely that cropped sweater). I remember sitting in a criminal lecture, the girl's laptop in front of me filled with the H&M checkout screen and the slight sinking feeling that I'd have to try and convince some ebay seller of my impoverished student status. 
 So when I was kindly contacted by She Inside to pick something out, I couldn't help but choose this piece. I am surprisingly loving the neoprene material and the slightly cropped fit, with the shade fitting seamlessly into my somewhat greyscale wardrobe. 

Some of my fave inspirational images of recent, beginning to transition into S/S mindset..
