Spikes & Ombre For My Anniversary

This is a comfy outfit I threw on to wear for mine and my boyfriends 4 year anniversary on Friday. We went to watch The Avengers at the cinema (which was hilarious and so good! I loved it!) and then we headed to get some pizza at an Italian pizza restaurant. Of course it was raining on and off, but we got lucky at the time we took these photos.

I’m wearing a Topshop Purple Ombre Studded Shoulder jumper/sweater, Topshop Acid Grey Leggings and Face ring, my Mulberry Candy Pink Denim Lily and my Urban Outfitters Boat wedges.

I fell in love with this jumper a couple of weekends ago and I just knew I would love it, so I bought it without trying it on. It combines 3 of my favourite things; studs/spikes, ombre and comfortable jumpers. It’s so warm and cosy! It works well with leggings too as it’s just long enough to cover them. I’ve included a photo of me sat in the display chair for Johnny Depp’s new movie Dark Shadows and also my cheese-less pizza since I don’t eat cheese. Did you all have a nice weekend?

Black & White With My Mulberry Oak Lily

This is an outfit that I put together on Easter Sunday, last weekend. I’ve sort of become addicted to leggings now, I have gained quite a few in pretty colours and prints, but these seem to be a pair I go to the most when I’m not in jeans. I thought pairing them with my tie front shirt would look nice and I quite like how it turned out.

I’m wearing my Miss Selfridge coated black leggings and my tie front white shirt, my new Topshop metallic toe cap heels, my Merle O’Grady necklace, Urban Outfitters bird ring, AVON pearl bracelets and my Mulberry Lily in Oak.

I’ve had a little thing for metallic toe cap heels and when I saw these in Topshop last month, I thought they were adorable! The best thing is they are only 3 inches so they are suprisingly comfortable! This is also the first time sharing my Mulberry Lily in Oak with you guys in an outfit. I don’t usually like brown and black together, but I have become fond of it when white is also involved. I then finished off the look with some accessories. What do you think?

Pastel And Neon Pink

I’m just warning you in advance, there are quite a few pictures in this post, ha ha. These were taken when I took a trip to the Botanical Gardens (one of my favourite places) over the weekend with my boyfriend to feed the animals and enjoy the scenery. I absolutely adore animals, as a lot of you know, so I love spending time with them and watching their cute behaviour.

I’m wearing my 7 For All Mankind Neon Pink jeans, my Topshop pastel speckle jumper/sweater, neon Boat Shoes and my Mulberry Candy Pink Quilted Denim Lily.

I got sent these jeans to review by 7 For All Mankind (which I will do soon on DenimBlog) and I absolutely love them! I think they are incredible! I picked up these Boat Shoes in Topshop a few weeks ago too (along with the pastel speckle jumper) and I can’t get enough of them! I’ve always loved Boat Shoes (my boyfriend is not very keen, but I am, ha ha!) but I always found them to look a little old fashioned, so when I saw these with all of the colours and hints of neon, I thought they were perfect! What do you think?

P.S – I would love for you to check out the DenimBlog Trend Guide which was posted yesterday. It’s a magazine in PDF form about the latest denim trends, interviews and more. You can download it here.

My Bag Collection

As promised here is my bag collection to celebrate my blogs 2nd birthday which was on 10th March 2012. It took me a while to do these photos because I didn’t realise how many bags I had! I think I might have too many actually! I put them in two different piles, one being non designer bags (which make up most of my collection) and the other is my designer bags. I have also included some close up photos of all of the bags in this post too.

Above photo from left to right is:
1st row – River Island, Topshop, River Island, Topshop.
2nd row – Topshop, ASOS, River Island, Topshop, River Island.
3rd row – Peruna, Topshop, Topshop, ASOS, Topshop.
4th row – Urban Outfitters, River Island, ASOS, FCUK, Topshop.
5th row – Mary  Frances, Mary Frances and AVON.

I realised after making this post that I seem to love Topshop and River Island bags. They do make up most of my collection because I think they are cute and they are not expensive either!

Now on to my designer bags (below), which I have collected 7 over the past couple of years now. The best part is I never paid the retail amount for any of them except my Mulberry Pink Denim Lily and the MbMJ Dandelion Karlie. The Mulberry one I saved for months for! I am going to list these individually and where I got them from.

Top left is my Marc Jacobs Bruna. I got this from The Outnet back in 2010 with 70% off the retail price!

Top right is my Marc Jacobs Sonic Pouch. I got this also from The Outnet when they had their birthday sale. The most amazing part is I got it for only… £2!! Everything was £2 in their birthday sale so I was so excited to snap it up.

Bottom left is my Mulberry Oak Lily. I got this from an authentic seller on eBay for a good deal! I haven’t yet shared this one with you either.

Middle is my Mulberry Sparkle Tweed Alexa. I got this one from the Mulberry Factory Shop last summer at 70% off the retail price too.

Middle right is my Marc by Marc Jacobs Berry Haze Percy. I bought this from Shopbop with a 20% off code.

Bottom middle is my Marc by Marc Jacobs Dandelion Karlie. I bought this at the beginning of last year from Net-A-Porter. I fell in love with it and it has been one of my most used bags.

Bottom right is my Mulberry Candy Pink Quilted Denim Lily. I bought this from the Mulberry website not long ago and I am obsessed with it! I am so glad I saved for it!

So this is how my bag collection currently stands! I have tonnes and unfortunately there are more that I want, but those have to wait until I have saved. I think I have saved enough for another Marc by Marc Jacobs bag I want. It’s not too expensive, so it’s definitely manageable soon! The only other expensive one I want is the Mulberry Taylor in Deer Brown. I am waiting for that to appear at the Mulberry Factory Shop in a few months so I can get it really cheap! Hopefully it does! What do you think of the collection? Be sure to click this post to see all of the photos.

Pink Valentine

So here is the rest of my outfit that I wore for Valentines Day. My boyfriend and I went out to lunch and we exchanged gifts at home, I love the little things he got me! I thought an all pink outfit would be really appropriate since pink is my favourite colour and Valentines is all about love! It just made sense!

My pink outfit consists of my M2F pink skinny jeans, my Zara pink blazer, my Topshop knitted cream jumper/sweater and rainbow necklace, ASOS white long sleeved top and neon pink watch, my new Mulberry pink denim Lily, my pink Azendi Carousel ring and my River Island taupe ankle boots.

I also wanted to take this posts opportunity to say thank you to my wonderful boyfriend. Thank you for taking my photos for my blog, for always being there for me, keeping me warm when I get cold (which is often), making sure I am ok when we are out, always thinking of me, looking after me when I need it, knowing me better than I know myself… The list could go on, but I wont, I will keep it short. I’m glad there is a day in the year where we can celebrate love! So what do you think of my all pink outfit?

My New Mulberry Candy Pink Quilted Denim Lily

You might remember that I fell in love with this bag, the Mulberry Candy Pink Quilted Denim Lily, back in September 2011 when I saw it on Eliza Doolittle, which I then made a post about in October (here). This bag literally combines everything I love! Denim, pink, denim, a small bag, pink, denim, cross body bag, pink, denim… You get my drift!

Denim is my favourite fabric, as you know since I live in jeans, and making it pink and in my favourite Mulberry bag, the Lily, it’s just perfect! Since I saw it, I started saving because I knew I would really want it. Also it helps since it’s not made of leather, so I knew it would be cheaper than most Mulberry bags I can’t afford and as a plus it doesn’t have the potent leather smell! I am literally in love with this bag and I couldn’t wait to share it with you all! Also, the modelled photos are from an outfit I will be posting soon! What do you think of it?

Be My Valentine – Pink & Red Finds

Mulberry Candy Pink French Purse.

Since Valentines Day is right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to put a little post together of the things I like and think are appropriate for Valentines Day! Keeping with the theme of pink and red (for romance and love of course) I have piled together loads of items that I found online. Some are very cheap while others are quite expensive. I like to include a mix.

I personally would love everything in this list! Especially the Mulberry purse above, the Ksubi pink jeans, the Christian Louboutin Pigalle Platos, the glittery nail polish and the Azendi love birds necklaces! Just as a clue to one of my upcoming posts next week, I recently received a parcel in the mail and it contains one of these pink items… That’s all I will say! Maybe some of you regular readers will guess it! It’s something I have wanted for a long time and saved for…

Things That Make Me Smile During Winter

An adorable heart shaped water bottle that I got from my boyfriend last year. I can’t be without water bottles! I get so cold.

I thought I would put together a little post of the things that make me smile and keep me cosy during the Winter months! There are a mix of things, obviously not everything is listed, but some of the important ones are. What keeps you smiling during Winter?

Amazingly cosy slipper boots which I just got this morning as a gift from DearFoams. They are so warm! Slippers are a must for me, I always have cold feet. I love thick socks as well, I own quite a few and wear them everyday.

Books! I love lying in bed at night, snuggled up, reading books. I’m currently obsessed with the Twilight series and I can’t get enough of it!

My mums home made vegetable soup. I love it so much! It’s delicious! It has carrots, broccoli, pearl barley and potatoes.

The first sign of Spring! I spotted these daffodils just springing on the weekend. There is nothing like hope, knowing Spring and Summer are around the corner!

Cosy pyjamas! I have a lot of pyjamas, but I really like the thicker bottoms with fun prints like these ones with foxes!

Adorable Christmas Mulberry packaging! I usually love Mulberry’s gift wrapping, but at Christmas time it was so cute with the jingle bells and ribbon.

Cat cuddles! Who can say no to sleepy cat cuddles? I love snuggling up with kitties more than most things. I’m a huge animal lover, especially kitties!
