Let's get lost - The Hall's landing vintage jewels.

How amazing is this wall of pretty pastel graffiti that I found on my travels? 
What better place than this to blog my new amazing jewels that I received from the lovely The Halls Landing (website launching soon) although you can catch them on their social links here to browse the handmade vintage jewellery collection they have.

This bold, beautiful necklace will look great at Christmas time with a classical LBD.
Until then I thought that I would style it with my bohemian inspired vintage bell sleeve top, favourite ripped jeans and my Topshop studded cowboy boots. Of course I had to wear my trusty fedora hat to complete the look.

Oh I do Love a good statement piece of jewellery that I can style and wear over and over again...
Thank you to The Halls Landing for this beautiful treat. If you live in or near Leeds, you can visit them in the Corn Exchange.

Hat: Primark.
Necklace: The Halls Landing.
Top: Vintage.

Boots: Topshop.

Thank you for your lovely comments & following my blog.

How to style Sammy Icon Socks - AW14.

I was lucky enough to receive these beautiful jazzy Jeff socks in the post the other day! Which is great because most of my socks are super boring. These really stand out and look great with almost any shoe. I will definitely be wearing these loads in the lead up to Autumn/Winter.
They are a really comfortable stretch cotton material and fit pretty much perfectly. As you can see from the packaging, they are nicely presented and worth the money ($11 per pair).

I am a sucker for chunky statement shoes at the moment, so what better to pair these socks with than my YRU platform trainers and my chunky cleated sandals.

If you love funky patterns and your sock draw needs livening up and bringing to life, then check out the lovely Sammy Icon.

What's in my £5 beautiful bargain handbag?!

How amazing and cute is this pastel pink clutch bag? I recently received it in the post and I just can't get enough of it. I absolutely adore the colour, I have recently bought my new winter coat and this will look perfect with it.
I love that this bag has so many separate compartments to put all of my goodies in. 
I am long overdue doing one of these posts, so thought what better chance than now to show you what's usually in my bag and show off my new cute clutch. 

Iphone: I Love my phone, sad but true. You will rarely see me without it, obviously I have to keep up to date with my Instagram feed and current trends ;).

Mac studio fix powder: The best powder out there in my opinion, it is flawless and you rarely ever have to top it up. I keep it in my bag for emergencies and for a handy little compact mirror.

Mac lipstick: This particular shade is 'Velvet Teddy' as it's my newest colour. It is a lovely natural shade. I can't go anywhere with out my lippy!

Eyebrow pencil: Rimmel's brown/black eyebrow pencil is a must have for me, it's affordable and amazing. I keep it in my bag because it has a handy little brush on the lid.

Eyeliner pen: Just incase I have a smudge during the day, I love eyeliner! This Bourjois eye pen is amazing. Makes eyeliner so easy to apply. It stays on for hours too and doesn't move usually.

Money: I usually always have a little change handy for bus fair and snacks during the day. I try to not carry much as I spend it on things super fast.. Oops!

Perfume: I always like to have perfume handy, I like to top it up during the day to stay nice and fresh. This bottle is beautiful, it is currently one of my faves 'Vera Wang - Lovestruck'.

Sunglasses: My favourite sunglasses, for cheeky blog pictures and it was actually sunny today too. Wahoo! 

Vaseline: Amazing miracle product. I keep this handy incase my lips get dry or incase I need to tame my eyebrows :).

Loyalty cards: We all have purses full of them right? I have one for pretty much every store I shop at. This is just a small selection which I took shopping with me. Cheeky Boots, Debenhams, Subway and band card on the pile.

Ark clothing - Playsuit wish list.

Who said Playsuits had to be a Summer piece...

I am a huge fan of playsuits, they are so easy to wear and such a cute Summer outfit. Although the weather is changing and it will be getting colder over here in the UK soon. Don't put away your playsuits yet. Have you ever stopped and thought just how much of a versatile piece playsuits actually are?

I thought I would share with you my favourite picks from the Ark Clothing website:

1. August Lace Playsuit £26.99 - Such a classical piece, the LBP this would look great during the day with a kimono and chunky boots, or at night time with killer heels.

2. Juniper Paisley Playsuit £22.99 - Beautiful Autumnal shades, this statement floral piece is sure to turn heads this season. I would definitely team this with cleated black heels and a chunky knitted cardigan. 

3.  Large Flower Print Playsuit £26.99 - I am a sucker for a monochrome outfit. I would Love to wear this with all white accessories, my black fedora hat and a black leather jacket.

4. Carla Playsuit  £32.99 - I always this lace is so timeless, it's a trend which comes around every year. This is probably my favourite item from the collection. I think that this would look great with some knee high socks, chunky chelsea boots and a statement gothic necklace. *Also available in white - Unless you are like me and can't be trusted for spilling drinks down yourself... Oops.

** Trendofdays top tip - Wear 'summer' playsuits with T-shirts and Blouses underneath, that's sure to keep you warm and looking super cute all at the same time!**

Steel City - Outfit of the day.

Hello Lovelies! Sorry my posts haven't been as frequent the last couple of days. I have been crazy busy and working. So I thought I'd put my pjs on, have a cup of tea and get to it.
I have a seriously confused wardrobe at the moment, I can't keep up with this confused weather!? Is it warm, is it cold? 
So I have decided to blog an outfit which I find super comfortable and timeless. This outfit is totally what I would wear to a festival or a gig. 
The T-shirt I have on, I Love so much. It's from a company based in my home town Sheffield. I will link them below, please check them out! They are super cute and really individual. Every design is hand drawn and printed with Love.
The best thing about the weather getting colder is definitely chunky boots and beanie hats...
What's your favourite statement piece for the colder weather?

Hat: Skinny Bitch Apparel.
Sunglasses: Primark.
Shirt: River Island.
Shorts: We are Cow.
Boots: Dr Martens.

Empty Casket.

Today I thought I would blog one of my all time favourite T-shirts. I bought this a while ago from Empty Casket, but it matches absolutely everything. It's a piece I have worn continuously since I purchased it. Can I also add that the store sells amazing jewellery too, I could literally spend hundreds on that website! 
I am a sucker for a monochrome outfit, so I decided to team the T-shirt with my trusty pu skater skirt and my YRU platform trainers. 
Excuse my messy hair, I was having a bad hair day! It was too warm to wear a hat (even though these pictures make the weather look super cold for some reason.)

Can I just comment on the hilarious looks I was getting from the people passing by, as I was sprawled across the road. Come on have you never seen a girl in giant shoes laying in the middle of the road before!? No... Oh right.

Sunglasses: Primark.
Necklace: Topshop.
T-shirt: Empty Casket.
Skirt: Ark clothing.
Shoes: YRU.

Happy Thursday Dolls,
