Hey there!

So it’s been a while since I last posted because the rush of packing and graduating and just all the goodbyes gave me really little time to sit down and figure out what to post!!

I’ve been in Barcelona with my family for the past few days, and I actually planned my outfits weeks ago but I hurt myself while packing (8 bruises, a whole bunch of cuts and a messed up ankle) so I ended up having to change things up to cover my bruises/not hurt my ankle more.

Here are some of the outfits from my trip!

Before flying off, we obviously did a bit of shopping in London haha.IMG_2120 2 IMG_2144 2

Top: Topshop | Jeans: Primark, similar here | Shoes: Korea

We arrived in Barcelona on a Sunday and everything was closed so we went on a tour out of the city to Girona and Figueres, where we had the world’s best ice cream! (you can see some of my bruises oops)

Top: Glamourous | Jeans: same as above | Shoes: Adidas

We continued being touristy the next day, getting two day passes for the hop on hop off bus haha. We did do quite a bit of shopping though 🙂

Romper: Topshop | Bag: Primark | Shoes: Adidas | Hat: market in barcelona

And of course, who could go to Barcelona without visiting the Sagrada Familia?? It was honestly breath-taking, and when I first stepped in it felt so surreal and I was so overwhelmed I sat in the prayer area for like 20 minutes haha

IMG_2496FullSizeRender 4IMG_2606 IMG_2618 IMG_2628Top: Pull and Bear | Skorts: Bershka | Shoes: Korea | Sunglasses: Padini

And finally, on the last day, we went up to Monserrat and got to see the Monserrat boys choir, as well as their school and the church and the Monserrat National Park! (We also went for dinner at a 2 Star Michelin restaurant but I don’t have any decent pictures from that!)

Jacket: Zara | Crop Top: Brandy Melville | Shorts: Glamourous (they’re suede, but there are similar PU ones here) | Watch (in all outfits): Jasper Conran

Thanks for reading (as well as being patient when I disappeared!), I’ll be putting up a post on my shopping haul soon!

Have a great weekend 🙂

I promise I’ll post a full post from Barcelona this weekend!!

Thanks for reading!

Hey there! So obviously I’m not very good at keeping up with posts because it’s quite a bit into June already and I forgot to do my March and April favourites, but I guess I can just combine them! This is a very short list of favourites as I had an exam yesterday and have 2 more this week!

1. Pull & Bear crop top/braletIMG_9147

I really love the little cut outs on this and it’s super cute to wear under sheer tops or things instead of a usual tank top!

2. Gossip Girl gossip girl is my guilty pleasure HAHA I’ve been watching it as a study break, and I restarted from the very first episode and I’m halfway through season 2!

3. Adidas Superstars IMG_9839 I’ve been showing these so much love since I got them, wearing them in so many posts (here, here, here and here) so it’s no surprise that they’re on my favourites list!

4. Aveda Be Curly and Damage Remedy

IMG_1782the weather has been changing and that causes my hair to frizz quite a bit! although my hair rarely seems curly (it’s always being annoying and either curling on one side or just going flat) i actually have natural curls so this helps to keep the frizz away. the damage remedy is for the blonde parts of my hair from when I bleached it! these products helped me prevent a major breakdown from overly awful and frizzy hair haha.

hello!!

I’m in the middle of exams and it’s SO stressful but I had a paper today and then a 2 and a half hour mock, so I thought I deserved a break! While shopping (hey, retail therapy is the best stress reliever) I found a couple of dupes of gorgeous items with not so nice prices, so I thought I’d share it with you guys!

1. Lace Up Dresses

Screen Shot 2015-06-03 at 05.13.46 pm

When I saw the Motel dress, I instantly fell in love with it, but £42 was way more than I was willing to pay for it! So I was super pleased when I saw a similar dress on Pretty Little Thing for £12 (it’s now £20 though).

Motel Swing Dress With Lace Up & Flare Sleeves – £42

Pretty Little Thing Liz Black Cross Front Crepe Swing Dress – £20 (I bought it for £12 and the other colours are still £12!!!)

2. Lace up sandals

Screen Shot 2015-06-03 at 06.15.19 pm

Obviously buying a £660 pair of sandals was not something I was planning to do in the near future, so I IMMEDIATELY bought the topshop sandals when I saw them! With my student discount, they were less than 1/10 the price of the Chloe ones! (I got them in tan, which is just as gorgeous!)

Chloe Lace Up Suede Wedge Sandals – £660

Topshop Webster Ghillie Wedge Sandals – £68

3. Mules

Screen Shot 2015-06-03 at 05.12.10 pm

I love Jenn Im, so when Jenn Im mentioned mules, I immediately started looking for some! Jeffrey Campbell is one of my favourite brands, but I’m really broke so I had to find a replacement! (plus, I kind of like the peep toe more than the completely covered mule anyways, so win win!)

Jeffrey Campbell Bingham Mule – £129.04 ( currently on sale for £90.33)

Forever 21 Peep-Toe Faux Leather Mules – £25 (currently on sale for £17.50)

So that’s all I have for now, back to studying 🙁

Let me know if you think I should make this a regular part of my blog (and maybe think of a better title for it??)

Thanks for reading!
