10 things that you don’t know about me

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

First my loves lets introduce you to the most cute lace up top ever! This beaut is from Shein and as always is mega affordable, at only £15 (insane I know). Its such a flattering shape too, it really gives you that hour glasses figure. It is a shame babes that you can’t see these trousers properly in these pictures (bring back summer & good lighting), if you could, you’d know they were the most amazing plum coloured satin combats!! I mean come on satin…combats!!

So I wanted you guys to get to know me a little more, so I thought I’d do a blog post on 10 things you don’t know about me. I mean some of you have known me for years, so you will know these things, and they will probably make you laugh!

1. I have absolutely no sense of direction, to the point where can happily come out of a shop and walk for a good 10 minutes, before I realise I’ve gone in the wrong direction. I also use sat nav to get around everywhere, I mean everywhere. I also get lost in peoples houses a lot…

2. I am obsessed with chocolate, if you leave chocolate near me, I will eat it in 2 seconds, and no I won’t feel bad!!

3. I have a 15 year old sister, which may not seem anything crazy, but she is my full sister and there is 15 years between us. Plus she’s most perfect little thing you ever did see, and I love her to bits.

4. As you can see above I have a Yorkshire terrier dog called Ralph, and I let him lick me on my face, mouth, nose, meh I don’t even care, I literally love him that much!

5.  I have a massive thing for crop tops, which is not weather appropriate in the UK at the minute at all. For a night out give me a pair of trousers and a crop top, over a little slinky dress any day.

6. I have the most perfect fiancee (they all say that) but honestly he is a dream, he shops with me for hours, takes all my pictures for my blog, puts up with me moaning about looking fat. He is an absolute gem and I am so lucky to be with him.

7. Both my fiancee and I work in digital, so we genuinely come home and have conversions about it, only a nightly basis….highly sad.

8. I have a lisp! Not a surprise if you have ever heard me talk, but its there and its prominent. I got very badly teased for it when I was at school, but now I realise like any bullying, that was their anxieties and weaknesses. My lisp is part of me, and I am a confident person so will always speak freely, and it never ever makes me feel self-conscious. If someone picks up on it to make fun of me (not a regular occurrence actually) I will make sure they know how childish that is, and that its only a bad reflection on them.

9. I wanted to work and make money since being a little girl, so I would make things out of sticks in the garden (like stick dolls, stick nests, the possibilities were endless), and sell them for real money to unsuspecting family members. Whether they wanted them or not, lol!

10. I am terrible at texting people back, like completely and utterly terrible, my lovely amazing friends have learnt to deal with it over the years. Its that whole I’ll do it later thing…sorry guys, you know I love you <3.

Am I allowed to wear a band tee?

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

That is the question on many peoples lips…am I allowed to wear a band tee because it looks cool, not because I am really into the band? The answer to that from the die hard fans is probably no. But meh, its really does look cool, plus it was £6 in the Zara sale, and I do actually know who Kiss are, so actually the answer to my own question is yes, definitely :).

I love wearing a graphic/band tee with a more smart style of trousers, especially if they are wide leg, I think it is such a good contrast that just works every time. Plus how cute is the frill waistband on these Topshop striped trousers? Topshop pulls it out of the bag every time for me.

This is probably one of my favourite outfits for a long time, I am going to start a collection of graphic tees/band tees and wide leg trousers, such a perfect combo. Finally the most staple comfortable sandals in the world. They are from the cheaper range of shoes at Topshop, and although they are not leather, they are really nice quality & so comfortable, plus I love the big buckle details.

Why I’ll always be a Topshop Girl

Processed with VSCO with j1 preset

Since I was about 14 years old I have been in love with Topshop, the small town that I grew up in actually had a small Topshop which was amazing! Hence why all the money I got from my Saturday job, went straight into the pocket of Philip Green. Over the years my love for this high-street giant has not changed.

I love the fact that I know that I can go into Topshop, and find something that I love without any problems, or really any effort! This outfit is entirely Topshop, and I think its my favourite so far this year. I absolutely adore tie front tops and wide leg cropped jeans are at the top of my wish-list at the minute (they also do this pair in black, which I know I pretty much HAVE to purchase).

Plus these jeans are the perfect level of high-waisted for me, I love a really high pair, as it makes it so much easier to wear with crop tops, and these are perfect. Lastly my little Whistles bargain bag, its the tiniest bag in the world, but for a night out is the perfect size to hold your phone & little essentials.
