OOTD: Camel Racing

The title of this post is no joke. 

On Monday we travelled to a field in the middle of nowhere to go to a country fair type event with ferris wheel, candyfloss, dog shows and...yes...camel racing! 

I have honestly never seen anything like it! Camels are bloody enormous, definitely a lot bigger than I thought they were and they tower over a 6ft human. The jockeys were more used to riding ponies in gymkhanas than these mighty "ships of the desert" and looked absolutely terrified. As soon as they were mounted the camels were raring to go and then they were off!!

I do like camels. They have eyelashes to die for. But I don't want one as a pet. Thanks but no thanks.

Jacket - Primark (v old) with the sleeves hacked off
Dress - River Island £12 in the sale!

Hope you all had a b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l bank holiday weekend!

Video: Get Ready With Me for Field Day Festival May 2013

The Bank Holiday weekend was craaaaaazy good!

I went to Field Day Festival in Hackney on Saturday for a friends birthday. The weather was set to be wet and cold but we actually had beautiful sunshine alllll daaaaaaay. Honestly, there is nothing better than sitting outside drinking in the sunshine with your friends...bliss

So I got up at 7 am to make a "get ready with me" video before I left! Hell yes, that's dedication right there. I love these kinds of vids so thought I'd have a go at making my own. It's not the most interesting but if you fancy checking out how I did my make up/hair for the day check it out HERE

Princess Peach

Who amongst us didn't want to be a princess when they were little? 

For most of us that was never going to happen and 10 years on we're just happy in our own little lives...but hold your horses...don't give up on the dream just yet...

Crowns are making a comeback!

I need one of these on my head pronto! 

Can definitely picture myself strolling around town wearing one of these with a plain t shirt dress and chunky boots. Of course you'd get a couple of odd looks, but know that deep inside all the too-cool-for-school teenage girls would be green with envy.

Regal Rose is the place to head to if you want to pick up one of these little beauties! They are selling "Arwen" ombre lace crowns in turquoise, purple and pink for £24 - a bargain of a price for something which could lead you to bag your Prince Charming!

Check out their full range of princess goodness HERE

Does anyone else fancy joining the Crown Cult with me?

OOTD: 21st Birthday!

It was my little sister's 21st birthday on Saturday, where has the time gone? Swear she only turned 18 last year!

We all went down to take her out for a grown up lunch in Bristol. She's bang in the middle of exams at the moment so the mega birthday blow out will have to be postponed 'til June sadly!

Coat - Ebay 
Top - New Look (previous post)
High waisted jeans - Topshop
Boots - Ebay
Bag - Matalan (only got the white ones left online but I'm pretty sure that the black ones are still available in stores)

Rings - Forever 21, my shop, New Zealand, birthday gift

Totally in love with my NL breton tops that I featured in a previous post, they're so comfy and versatile! 

My coat is a Zara wannabe from Ebay - it is a pretty good replica and I'm happy with the way it looks but the materials used are very plasticky (definitely prone to sweating if it's a little warm) and the delivery time from China was over month...but for a fraction of the price of the real thing I guess I can't really complain!

Had a lovely three course meal down at the harbour side and had a little wander round Bristol to help our food digest! It's such a wicked city and definitely worth a visit if you haven't been before. Groups of students in fancy dress getting rattered at kind of place!

Can't believe she's 21!!

Do check out my Primark Haul video I made the other day and let me know what you think, if you haven't already - click here for link

I got some proper pictures done for this outfit post. What do you think?

Hope you all had a lovely weekend

OOTD: Kiss Me Quick

Ahooooooooooooooy there! Felt like I should have been wearing a sailors cap with this jolly little outfit. 

T shirt - New Look 
Skirt - New Look
Tights - COS
Boots - Primark 

Lipstick - "Plum" Forever 21
Necklace - Morrocco

Look at my crazy happy face!! I picked up 2 of these long sleeved Breton tops when there was a "2 for £8" deal on and this little denim look skirt was only £15 - hell yessssss! 

If you haven't been into New Look for a while you really should pop in and have a mooch round. They've got some lovely stuff in stock at the moment and it seems as though the days of scattered diamante all over everything are gone thank goodness. 

This felt like a very summery/nautical little look especially paired with my burgundy Primarni boots but sadly the weather didn't hold out and I was changed back into my onesie pretty quickly after these pictures were taken. 

Hope you're all getting super excited about the weekend

OOTN: Can't Touch This

Saturday night was the time to take my new Celine-style tee out for a spin! 

It's taken me a good month or so to get hold of one of these bad boys. They've been bombing round the blogisphere for a couple of months now and as a result have been sold out on Ebay but my bad luck stopped the other week and I'm now a proud owner of my very own version!


T Shirt - Ebay 
Trousers - H&M (sale)
Shoes - New Look (v old)

Collar - Morrocco
Spiked Necklace - ASOS (old)
Name Necklace -
Hamsa Hand - Morrocco
Teardrop pendant - Xmas present

I teamed my tee with burgundy faux-leather trousers, courts and some serious neck armour. I've been seeing a lot of necklace stacking going on on Instagram and have been meaning to hunt down some cheap necklaces to connect together  when I have the time - it looks so freaking cool! Everyone loves a good arm party so why not let your neck have one too?

Just a quick heads up...whole body parties + vodka aren't such a good look...!

What do you think about of these t-shirts and stacked necklaces?

OOTN: Black As Night

Oh hey there Friday night outfit...

Crop top - Topshop
Jamie jeans - Topshop
Ankle boots - New Look (sale)

Necklace - Primark 

Oh ma Lawd I am sooooo in love with with this lipstick! Saw it recommended by Sammi from Beauty Crush  and had to check it out. The colour is a beautiful raspberry hue with a matte finish and it smells incredibleeeeeeee...nom nom nommmmm...

Primark have some absolutely amazing bits in store at the moment and I picked up this little rainbow number for £3 the other day! Just love the way it adds a pop of colour to this outfit and for such a diddy price it's a welcome addition to my wardrobe.

I wore this outfit for a girlie night out on Friday night and it's safe to say a good night was had by all...

Hope you're all well and had a wicked weekend

Bloggers Lookbook: April 2013

I'm spending this bank holiday weekend at my parents in the countryside so I will be mostly mooching round in wellies and pj bottoms!

Therefore as there won't be an outfit  post of mine this weekend, I decided to put together a post featuring a collection of my fave blogger looks from the last month. 

Rosie Glow - The Carrie Tutu Rosie produces amazing outfits with a quirky edge on a daily basis but this crazy cool look made my jaw hit the floor!
Rosie -1 /Carrie - 0

Jade Francesca - It's in the stars... 
 This incredible outfit actually featured on Jade's blog at the end of March but it's too good not to feature in my favourites. Not only does she have a wardrobe to die for but this gal has a knack for mixing up beautiful boho looks with an edge - crochet, lace flares and plaits together, yes please!

Pictures belong to Jade from

Wise Rabbit Says - Square, Circle, Triangle
 Gaaaaah Ashley how do you do it? Another effortless mix of shapes, textures and wishlist accessories which makes me want to take scissors to my jeans and rock a fedora ASAP!

 It goes without saying that if you aren't already followers of these blogging beauts, you should become one pronto. Their blogs are all totally unique and their individual styles are completely inspirational!

What do you think of the top three I've chosen?
