Elle UK Free Gift - Complaint!

Every month I look forward to my magazine subscriptions dropping through my letterbox seeing who is on the cover and what free goodies and discounts I have inside.

Today my Elle UK came through, Lily Allen on the front, Elle
Club discounts and a Paul and Joe Sister T-shirt - cool!

Never had a shirt through with a mag before, opened it up, put it on....fits nicely, it's not my style but nice and then I noticed....

A hole! Eek!

However then I looked a little closer and saw that the piping aorund the neckline wasn't sealed and just open with tufts of thread coming from it. Maybe this was the style of the shirt however some of it WAS closed like a normal shirt should be which makes me think that this is just really low quality.

I then checked the stitching and down the armpits was ripping already. I had no struggle getting it on and it fit perfectly so it wasn't me mishandling the product at all.

If anybody else has this problem or even if you don't, let me know it's not just me or maybe i have a one off.

Also if anybody from Elle stumbles upon this - I do love you Elle but seriously...?

Jewels, Jewels, Jewels!

This is currently where I am keeping all of my jewelry,, hanging from 3 different stands and also some in a box just behind this. Ignore the Panda cookies...

The main reason I'm attracted to most of my jewelry is because it's unusual. Here are some of my favorite pieces I own, they are all high-street but I love them all the same.


1. Pink Flamingo, Pearls and a bright Pink bow - what more could I ask for! Its a long length necklace and I just fell in love with the large, pink -jeweled flamingo. From Topshop.

2. The owl necklace I bought from Ebay, it was £1.60 with free postage. What a gorgeous bargain!

3. This is a weird one, its length is slightly longer than a normal necklace but not long enough to dangle down. However its wonderful and the little clasp to the birdcage even works!


1. This charm bracelet is very feminine, so cute, I love every single little charm on it, my favorites are the diamante horse shoe and the coral colored heart with lock in the middle. From Accessorize.

2. This is from Topshop. Its a very simple charm, 2 bows, 2 anchors . Well I love anything anchor and the baby blue floral one its the best! Chunky fake looking gold is borderline tacky/wonderful!

3. My boyfriend bought me this, its a New York City themed charm bracelet - need I say more?! Favorite charm is the letters 'NYC' and the Manhattan cocktail.


1. Double 'Love' ring, I adore double rings and this is unfortunately the only one I own! it's from Accessorize, sits well and doesn't feel like my fingers are binded together at all.

2. Owl gem ring from Topshop - well look at it... its so cute! Best part are his eyebrows in lilac colored gems.

3. My mum bought me this HUGE flower diamante and pearl ring for Christmas, its adjustable which is great because I have the worlds skinniest fingers. Great for special occasions (but have to watch my drinking when wearing as I'm too scared to lose or damage it!)

4. Big, chunky, plastic, floral, diamond ring. From Accessorize I love it SO much only problem is I've worn it to work and the alcohol in the perfume has worn away the plasticy gold paint :(

That's all for today, will be trying out some recipes soon so stay tuned!
Peace x

Unicorn Suncatcher!

A couple weeks ago i started looking for a cute sun-catcher - then i found this! DIY your own UNICORN sun-catcher! It was so cute I couldn't resist.

So here goes:

First of all you need to cover a tray with tin foil, lay down your frame and begin filling in with the colored crystals you want/get in the pack. This one is a white (which also glows in the dark!)

I used the 3 other colours to make the maine, hooves, tail and eye. Then popped it in the over for about 30-40 minutes. It smelt awful BUT the result as SO worth it!

This is it fresh out the over, looks like glass now but is still wet. You have to leave it to dry on the tin foil for about 10 minutes. Then the sploges you can see come off with it.

All you have to do after that is attach a string to the little sucker thing it comes with and hang it up where the sun shines on it! It looks soo much better in real life i can't describe I just love it!

Also today My brother and sister-in-law welcomed their little baby girl Daisy Boo into the world so congratulations to them :)

First post!

Well this is my first blog post, and apart from my Tumblr - my first Blog!

So here is a bit about me:

This is the most recent picture of me...

I'm 20 years old - despite looking like a 12 year old.
My hair is platinum blonde, obviously it is not natural, occasionally i will put lavender or lilac in it to spice up my life.

I have 2 tattoo's. my first one was of an anchor that me and my BFF got done together, my 2nd is a peace sign to remind me I'm a Free bitch baby!

I love Fashion, most animals (not insects/creepy crawly things/or flying animals), music, Larry David and baking cupcakes.

I work in fragrance retail at the moment, I live in a seaside resort in Devon, UK, but my soul belongs in a big city. New York owns my heart.

I have 2 hamsters, one rabbit and a cat - they all have crazy personalities.




Thats it! this blog will be filled with things i want, like, some of it of things I've done or made.
Enjoy! x
