P.S Hi new followers :) 

Leeds, Haul + #OOTD2




Pound world - Sweets, travel plug and cotton wool pads - All £1 each // 



We had milkshakes // Cocktails in harvey Nichols // Yo sushi


My Second #OOTD 




Yesterday me and my friend from back home in Hull decided to meet up for the day in Leeds for some shopping, drinks, food and a general catch up

We loved the new Leeds Trinity Topshop and ended up buying our first purchases in there, my top, socks and necklace! i didn't actually spend that much cause they where all fairly cheap.

 I then went on to buy my pound land bargains.. not a place i tend to shop in but my mum said i would be able to find a travel plug there for Paris! which i did and its PINK !! amazingggg. i also picked up the sweets for the journey and the cotton wool padds as i needed them.

I bought my travel boots minis cause 1. they are cute and 2. thats all i really need for 2 nights in Paris. i used my boots points to buy them as well so even more of a bargain.

After a few drinks  went on to buy my Mac primer, which i have been debating about for a while but i thought whyyy not i might as well try it out

Finally i bought the skirt from River island, it was such a last minute buy as the shops where closing in two minutes but i have previously seen it and liked it, and i wanted it even more so to match the new Topshop spotty top :D !so it worked out perfect. 

After even more drinks and some yummy Yo Sushi we headed home (after getting lost trying to find the station) it was such a fun day catching up with my bestie and i have some great new purchases. 
im thinking the new skirt and top combo for paris ?? 

Ahhhh 2 more sleeps and i'm there !! #PFW <3

So as i have said i am going to Paris for Fashion week :D (one week to go) and i said i would do some form of outfit posts that i am potentially going to take with .. this could all change by next thursday but this will be the basis of what i plan to take, HOWEVERR i am meeting up with my friend in Leeds on monday to do some shopping so there may be a few changes and add ons... i shall more than likely do a Haul .. i hope to spend my pennies that i have been saving. 

Basically i have chosen a comfy outfit to travel in and my other outfits are kind of mix match and could be worn to either fashion week day or maybe on the 'paris bar crawl' we are going on :D :D. 

I am worried about the weather so i will be wearing tights with the dress! i'm not sure on what form of jacket/coat to wear ?!
 I don't want it to kill the outfit .. also fashion week girls ... Heals or no heals ?? will my feet fall off haha ?? i don't want to be stuck wearing them the whole day and be in pain :(.
I need help please :)! 

so help me out if you can.. any advise would be greatttt :D

#OOTD - First one ;)



Shirt - Primark // Scarf - Alexander McQueen //  Hat - Portobello Rd. market //
 Leggings- Kardashian Kollection at Dorothy Perkins // Jewellery - Vivienne westwood 

i am slightly scared to do this as im not fan of taking 'self' pics unless im drunk or messing with my friends but i wanted to try and have a go at this cause i love other peoples :) 

Its not a great one to start with as i dont actually have a decent camera to take pics with so i took them with my Mac webcam ;) 
So maybe i shall improve on that if i post one of these again ! 


On a side note:


16 days till Paris !! - can not wait and i'm promising tomorrow shall be Paris outfit orientated.

Today i was '3D body Scanned' at my uni as a part of a research project for average sizes ! it was interesting and good fun actually. and i now have a 3D print out of my body proportions .. (not a nice thing tbh ,, i look lumpy)

I also went along to a placement fair at my uni and spoke to people at boohoo.com, JD sports, JD williams and various 3rd year placement students about their experiences. It was great to hear first hand what they are up to and all talk to potential employers as to what they are interested for potential employees. 

And i got my brand new iPhone 5 today, even though i didn't have the intention of getting a new phone i realised my contract is up next month so i upgraded :)

I wanted to mention as well the competition i entered on: The Love Cats inc. Blog ! Check out her blog to enter.. (and possibly win 1 x urban decay naked basics palette,1 x real techniques core collection brush set,3 x essie polishes in bikini so teeny, orange it's obvious and we're in it together)

Finally..Alexander McQueen died 3 years ago today :( .. such a sad day in any fashion obsessed girls life ! I remember crying when i found out. R.I.P such an inspirational man. 


...So let me know how you feel about my outfit post?
If you entered the Love Cats inc comp. or if your running a comp? 
Do you Love Alexander McQueen?
Or what everr else i have chatted on about today ;)

Soap and Glory Sit Tight | Review



I LOVE LOVE LOVEEE soap and glory products, i think i actually own the full range.. or near enough! one of my favourite products is the sit tight body firming cream or what i like to call my bum cream :P 

Obviously aside from the amazing packaging and exciting slogans that come along with soap and glory's wonderful charm and amazinggnesss .. this cream actually works ! 

You just apply a small amount and rub it in ;) 
sounds a bit starnge rubbing cream on your bum but within a few seconds your bum feels all nice a tingely and feels like its actually working. its best if you sit down for the magic to actually happen. 

If you carry on using it daily or even 2/3 times a week you shall feel the results :D 
I love this product and would give it a 8 out of 10. 
to get a 10 it would need to work instantly for me :P haha and i don't think thats going to happen.

Instagram month: January

New Things :) 

Cinema date / Skype chats with friends / messing with my brother / dog walks in the snow 

Nights out / 50p shots / Rollers / friends / cocktails  in the hilton 


Finally bought myself a new watch from my birthday money and its Micheal Korrs just the one i wanted :) its perfect! i bought it for £185 so i feel it was quiet reasonable, see the link above.
And i Finally bought myself some Jeffery Campbell shoes which i am in LOVEEE with! i have been on the verge of buying them for sooo long and these beauties where in the sale for just £50 and i had a £40 voucher for office so i was mega happy !! i have hyper linked them above but they are no longer available online.
My boyfriend  bought me the Lady gaga perfume as a Christmas gift but as i was away for christmas i only just got it in January :) i was a bit unsure of it at first cause celeb perfumes are usually a bit naff but this smells BEAUT <3 


My other pics are from nights out and when i went back home to see my family :) The view from the hilton photo was because my friend booked for me as a birthday gift to go there and have cocktails at the cloud 23 bar ! it was amazingggg <3 but dead expensive so we only had one each :P it felt so good walking to the front of the que and going up to the bar in its own private elevator to the top of the hilton! 

Over all quiet a fun month :) 



Love Alex ox.
