Payday Wishlisting


So I've only been at my new internship a week and a half but I'm already planning what I can spend on my first payday. That is the sign of a true shopaholic. Top of my list is the Lulu Guinness umbrella. While looking on the website before my interview there, I spotted this and have been lusting after it ever since. I especially want it today after all the rain, and I saw a woman on the tube with it, it has to be mine! I'd also like to add the Ikea bedding to my collection when payday comes because I've been wanting it for so long. I popped into Ikea at the weekend and had a revelation about it, I thought it was two separate bedding sets when I had seen it hanging up before, a striped pink set, and a checked pink set. And I couldn't decide between the two so I didn't buy either. This weekend I finally realised its a two sided cover so you get both styles in one! What a complete and utter doofus I am! So now I want it even more because whats not to love about a two-sided pink duvet to brighten up your mornings!
Also I'm really disappointed that I haven't been posting this week so far. I'm not really fulfilling my aim of blogging 5 times a week this week. Its purely because I want to do outfit posts but I didn't have the time at the weekend to take any photos. I was down in Portsmouth for the weekend and took my camera to make sure I could take a few snaps, but Saturday was ridiculously windy, and Sunday was pouring with rain. So blog photos were a no go. Hopefully I can take some this weekend because I really want to do some outfit posts!
Hope you're having a good week!

Renewed Confidence

Winter Coats Lookbook

I uploaded a new video to my YouTube channel yesterday, a winter coats lookbook. Its something that Ive been working on for quite a while as I've had to fit in filming it around good weather days and sunlight. I also had to teach my mum to use the camera to help me film it. Safe to say what I thought would not take too long, took me ages. But I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. You can either watch it here on on my channel.
Also, if you don't like YouTube or you prefer outfits in picture format, I will hopefully be posting all the outfits in photo form here on my blog next week.
Let me know what you think! :)
And thanks to my mum for helping me film it!

Black on Black

If it wasn't for the shirt and jumper, I think I'd look a bit funeral-esque in this outfit! So much black!

The Velvet Shoes

Whilst I was interning at ASOS, I noticed these beauties being returned to the press team. I instagrammed them and said I needed them in my life. After I finished at ASOS I was lucky enough to have been given a voucher by them, bish bash bosh, these babies made their way into my life. Shoes really are a weakness for me. Now I know I won't be wearing them all the time but when they are that beautiful and basically free, how can you argue?

Hello 2014!

IMG_2709 legs1
So this is how I have spent my first day of 2014! Sleeping in till noon, spending the rest of the day in my pjs watching TV and doing a spot of baking. If thats not a good way to start the year, I don't know what is! I just had a quiet night in for New Years this year, I'm not really that fussed about doing anything spectacular for New Year, I'd rather be cosy in my pjs eating chocolate and sweets! What did you do for New Year?
I thought I would do a quick little review of what my resolutions and plans were for 2013 to see if I had fulfilled them, and set myself some new aims for 2014. I think I prefer the word aims rather than resolutions, its more of a goal then. So last year I wrote a list of To Dos and Resolutions for 2013, and here they are;

- Apply for internships - I have in fact done this and completed 3 internships in 2013
- Take a photo every day - I had an app called Photo 365 to help me to do this, and I fared quite well up until the end of July, only missing a few days but then I seemed to forget about it sadly
- Blog more - I posted less in 2013 than 2012, with 113 posts in 2013 to 140 in 2012, I think this was down to the fact I was spending so much time finishing my degree for half of the year
- Try YouTube - I have in fact done this, starting my channel in September, so I'm pleased I built up the guts to do it
- Eat more fruit and veg - I have eaten a lot more healthily this year definitely, sometimes even reaching my 5 a day, go me! haha
- Less sugar/sweets - I think I have epically failed at this, I blame the stress of uni
- Gym at least once a week - yeah this didn't happen, sorry not sorry
- Graduate uni with a 2:1 or a first - my biggest achievement of the year/my life, I came out of uni with a first!! that pretty much made my year
- Body moisturise everyday - yeah this didn't happen either, it takes too long to dry! aint nobody got time for that

So I think I did alright overall!

Now heres for 2014, my aims and hopes for this year!

- Find a job
- Take a photo a day (do better than last year!)
- Less sugar/sweets (maybe limited to weekends? but I cant promise on that one)
- Exercise more (emphasis on the 'more', because I just can't commit to becoming a daily/weekly gym bunny)
- More fruit & veg (do even better than last year)
- Blog more (try to blog 5x a week, I hope!)
- Body moisturise regularly (because once a day is too much like hard work)
- Keep up a proper skincare routine
- Continue YouTube-ing
- Move into my own place
- Give more compliments
- Participate in some form of fundraising event

So thats it, 2013 and 2014 aims in a nutshell, hopefully I can be here this time next year saying I did well this year! Have you set yourself any aims for 2014?
Happy New Year to you! :)
