City streets are talking.

 Hey all, feels like it's been a while since I posted an outfit on here, but i'm back with another!! It seems as of late I mainly wear Missguided, vintage clothing and items I've owned for years! I think my lack of money and this cold weather has meant my personal style has become a bit stagnant and boring, well to me I feel it has.
It's nice though as the weekends to be able to dress up a little bit more, wear something new and make the most of my many coats! This monochrome and fur beaut is one I got whilst working at Miss Selfridge. 
My outfit was constructed over the roll neck jumper top from Missguided because it's new I wanted to make the most of it. Worn with a skater skirt, vintage cardie, tights and loathers for a simple look that I felt was perfect for the weekend.

Crafting Wish List

I have wanted to put together a little wish list post like this for ages now! The opportunity arose when shopping on 'The Works' as they have huge discounted items and Free Delivery at the moment. As you all know I have been trying to post more of a variety here, including DIY's and tutorials. So I decided to put together a few items I am lusting after on their Arts and Crafts section
For example, they have loads of items to help with scrap booking, which is something I want to start in the summer. I have a vast amount of pPolaroidsand family photos etc I want to make into beautiful albums. So from now on I want to start collection pretty papers, ribbons and practice some Calligraphy. 
Other items include home crafting, like the letters you can paint or cover, jewellery box to paint and knitting packs. Basically I love a lot on the site and intend on collecting a few bits from the above wish list. Any of you have some projects you are working on? If so i'd love to know in the comments below.

Hey all, sorry it's been a while since my last post, last week was crazy busy! It has also been freezing cold so most of the time I have been dressing in about 100 layers and trekking to London every day for work. Because I leave at half 7 in the morning and don't get home until 8pm I don't have much of a life apart from at the weekends. So this post is featuring a pretty outfit I wore last weekend, when I get a chance to dress nicely and take photos to show you. 

The floral shirt dress is from Missguided, it's perfect for weekends because it can be worn with a cosy cardie in the day or a blazer and heels at night. Obviously I prefer the warm and cosy option, and a big snuggly coat to go with it. For ages I wanted to get a fluffy bear coat and this pastel pink one also from Missguided won me over. I can't wait to style it in more ways and show you how else to wear it.
