The Space Between The Threads

Shirt - Primark, Bustier - Republic, Belt - Thrift, Skirt - H&M, Shoes - Ebay
Hey! I am currently dying from my gym workout with a Personal Trainer, haven't trained properly in ages, worked me so hard! Need to get back to being toned before summer, tried the 30 day shred but I can't hack the cardio side of it, oh dear.

The sun was out so I chucked on this gorgeous bustier I got ages ago and haven't had a chance to wear yet. Such a cute summery outfit (if you ignore the tights), can it just be warm already?!

The Ever After Glow

Shirt - Thrift, Necklace - Topshop, Leggings - River Island, Socks - Topshop, Shoes - Fashion Union, Coat - Thrift
Hey everyone!

Just incase you've not seen i'm currently hosting a GIVEAWAY, you could win some stylish glasses of your choice or a voucher for designer glasses! Go have a look and enter if you haven't already. Thanks!

I wandered through Leeds to get some inspiration the other day, I used to make a lot of clothes and have completely stopped, I found a gorgeous shirt in the market which I'm making into a dress, have planned a DIY post if any of you would like me to? 

I also got this beaut for a couple of quid in a charity shop, bargain! I love the shape of the sleeves and it's a slight drop hem on the back too, it's incredible! Perfect print for spring/summer too. Wore this out for dinner with my flatmates, had the biggest Wagamama's ever, yum.

Hope you're all having a lovely week!

You're So Cute When You're Slurring Your Speech

Top - Zara, Necklace - Peacocks, Leggings - River Island, Shoes - Fashion Union, Lipstick - Rebel

Hey! Okay been pretty rubbish on the outfit post front, uni takes up so much of my time lately and i've been pretty busy! I wish I had photographed my outfit last night, I wore my new Motel Rocks playsuit out for a meal. My boyfriend surprised me (when I thought I wasn't seeing him until March) and was in my room when I got home from uni, best valentines day!

Anyway, here's a pretty basic day outfit, super comfy for lazing about and catching up on work. I had to go with my boyfriend to his lift (hence the shoes) so quickly photographed when I got back. Slightly different set up today, and not all stood up photos, opinions on this outfit post?

Also, to those of you who haven't seen, I'm holding A GIVEAWAY! It's super simple and if you're a follower all you have to do it comment! So go have a look! Thank you!

Hey guys! 

A few weeks ago I posted about some GORGEOUS sunglasses I received from Firmoo, an eyewear company. I sung their praises in every way about the stylish, good quality sunglasses, which arrived with all the accessories, a screw-driver, replacement nose holder things and a proper hard case with a lens cleaner. The sunglasses start and incredibly reasonable prices and are really on-trend!

Sunglasses - Firmoo*, Full post 
You can get any of their glasses Prescription or Non-prescription, and they sell clear lens glasses as well as sunglasses, so there is something for everyone! These are some of my current favourites off the website, with links below.

It's The Sweet Words, That Pulls Me In

Jacket - Thrift, Top - Zara, Treggings - Topshop, Faux Litas - Ebay
Hey guys!

So if any of you read my posts a lot (or follow me on twitter) you'll know I'm in a long distance relationship. Me and my boyfriend had our valentines day on Wednesday because we won't be seeing each other until march now *sob* and this was my outfit! 

I threw on my faux litas for the first time in ages, the heels feel really loose so I was pretty nervous, I'd invest in a new pair but I don't think I wear them enough, opinions?

Anyway, this fur coat was a bargain, £12! Absolutely love it, the sleeves are a bit short so cropped I guess. Wore it with my lovely velvet check treggings and another bargain, this Zara top which I got in the sale for £18 and love! The back is just gorgeous. Went for Mac's So Chaud on my lips and pretty simple eye make up.

We went to Zizzi's and made the most of my 2 for 1 taste card, it was absolutely gorgeous and if anyone has a nut allergy like me I really recommend it, or any allergy for that matter! They were really knowledgeable and I was even allowed a chocolate cake for pudding (that's a first!).
