The big freeze

My heating is currently broken and I can't get it fixed for another week......It happens to be one of the coldest weeks of the whole year and therefore my fingers are far too cold for typing!
I thought I would share with you one of my favourite blogs to read instead: it's
It's written by a gorgeous American girl who seems to have an endless supply of designer vintage clothing!  She spends her time dressing up in lovely, slightly eccentric outfits which only someone truly gorgeous can pull off.
At some point in the warmer future I'll share my new Models Own nail polish colours with you...
But for now I'm off to hibernate!

Another year older...

Back from London and still feeling quite knackered! We went to Camden market on the Sunday and there was so much to see!

Not the best photo as we got up early and I didn't have time to sort my hair!

So many great second hand shops in Camden

My whole trip was fuelled by my favourite Xmas beverage - Starbucks Toffee nut latte!

After Camden we went to Oxford Street as it was near the hotel and walked all the way down to Selfridges to see the windows. We had a lush dinner in Wagamamas and went back the next day for lunch!

Xmas lights on Oxford St.

Zara's rather strange window

Chanel's window in Selfridges

Wagamama's! (It's rice with miso soup and pickles)

This Selfridges window was made out of Sylvanian Family caravans with walkways connecting them!

Some unusual softies

Topshop Oxford St's beautiful window

Some of the window designs were more like theatre sets! They must have taken hours...
I didn't buy much in London - just the iron on transfers book below from Urban Outfitters. I wanted the outfit from the Chanel chic!


More flowers!

Mmmmm cake...

Barry M crackle glaze nail polish, cupcake earrings and Sukie Iron on designs

My present from a school friend- retro chic!
 On my actual birthday I did a bit of shopping in town then went for dinner with some friends. All in all a good couple of days! I can't post a pic of what my boyfriend bought me as I'm waiting for a replacement..(I was a locket but it wouldn't close properly!) And now, back to work for a few days....

Off for the weekend!

Yay! Work is finished for the week and I now have 4 whole days off! On Sunday and Monday I'm going to London for some shopping therapy and Tuesday is my birthday. Good times.
I'm excited to notice that someone in Belgium has viewed my blog. I have international appeal! Can't imagine how they managed to stumble across my blog...
Well, as I have been at work this week and therefore wearing a rather unattractive uniform, I have no pics of my outfits to post so I'll go with some pics of new clothes that have appeared on my favourite fashion websites. Here goes:
First up is a lovely looking scarf on the Topshop website:

UGG Chestnut Eternity Sheepskin Knit Scarf £70

Ok, so it's a little pricey, but it looks soooo comfy! What else can I find?

Wing clamp £12.50

Also from Topshop is this Wing shaped bracelet. Well, I assume it's a bracelet...

New this week at Zara is this super cute suitcase:

Suitcase £69.99

Hard to tell how big it is from the website picture and unfortunately it's not leather but that means my vegan friends can buy it too!

That's about all for now. More to follow when I get back from London! x

Nail beauty

Hiya! I'm continuing my love of Models Inc nail polishes with some photos of my new colour - Grace Green. What a great name!
The ring in the second photo is one that I picked up in Primark about a month ago. It was only about £3. Apologies for the terrible photo quality, obviously evening light is not a good time of day to be photographing...
On my wish list today are the new Models Own nail art pens which only arrived on their website yesterday. They come in black and white and they're only £6 each. Unfortunately I dont get paid for another week... :-(
Here's a sneaky peek:

They look like so much fun!

Day one of many!

Welcome to my blog! I'll be letting you know what I've been up to and what I've been buying and wearing. This will also be a tribute to all the lovely fashion blogs I read and the items Ive been coveting!
Went into town today to do a bit of shopping and came across this beautiful ring which I will now be dreaming about:

Ring from River Island £12.99

 They have a gorgeous selection of big, sparkly rings so I'd better get saving! I also found a beautiful retro style shearling coat in there. River Island is definitely my shop of the moment!

Brown shearling coat £89.99 from River Island.

 The highlight of my month is that Starbucks have brought back their Christmas flavoured lattes so I'm trying to drink as many as I can before they disappear in January. My favourite is the toffee nut latte...

That will have to be all for my first post as The X Factor is on and I can't be missing that! Au revoir.
