Oh hi there!

Long time no blog-post hey? Well turns out being an adult means you have no spare time to do anything but luckily I've found a few to spare today. I'm still reading all the regulars blogs on lunch breaks and when I have 5 mins sat down, don't you hate it when life gets in the way?! 

Anyway Christmas is soon so I'll be taking lots of snaps and showing off my first ever (own) tree :D

What are all your pre-festive plans? I'm trying to get into the spirit but a lack of money and present inspiration is grinding me to a halt! Do any of you have any awesome gift guides out there? hit me up with links!

Five Things Wishlist.

I used to always do these posts I love making little wish-lists of things I want/can't afford:

Bow Back Skater Dress - ASOS.
I love this colour but there is no way it would suit my pale skin and white hair, boo hoo :(

FairIsle Headband - ASOS.
It's starting to get so cold out I've been wearing a little bobble hat all week, I loved these headbands last year but never picked one up.

Deer Teacup - Urban Outfitters.
Ok I need this in my life!!

Unicorn Teacup - Urban Outfitters.
Oh and of course I need a friend for the above.

Floral Skull Necklace - ASOS.
I am so in love with this, it's on a long chain too which is basically all I enjoy wearing, definitely on the ol' Xmas list!

What things have you been into this week?

I've had a pretty quiet week, just working and enjoying having a free house for a week. For iPhoners I'm on Instagram too - I can't get enough of it so add me up: cowbiscuits.

I have a super awesome post coming up this week too I'm so excited to be a part of it!

Marvin Gaye & Chardonnay - outfit post

This was going to be a "to keep or not to keep" post but my lovely best-friend managed to rip the tags off and wear it on a night-out haha so I guess I'm keeping!

Belted Dress - New Look.

The back is lace too which is super cute.

So yeah I'm keeping it! I do like it anyway i just am one of those "I hate my arms" girls. 

I've been window shopping all the new winter going out dresses and although this is sleeveless the colour is definitely winter! What new wintery dresses have you spied?

I also want to say a huge thankyou to all the people who still read, comment and follow even though I've only be able to post once a week for a while now, every comment I love and try hard to reply!

Cashmere Challenge.

When somebody put the word cashmere to me I always used think "OLD LADY!" straight away, this was until last winter when I picked up a cheapy Primark cashmere jumper to wear to bed, it served me for a couple of months then dwindled into a not-so-soft mess.

Anyway VouchercCodes got in contact asking if I wanted to give an honest review of a cashere jumper, well duh of course I did I love soft things and I live away from home so need all the free warmth I can get!

The jumper in question was a Pure Cashmere crew neck from Marks and Spencer.

M&S Pure Cashmere Crew Neck Jumper in Light Camel - £59.
Well first of all it was SO soft to touch and instantly warmed me up, I've been wearing it with my pjs before bed and when I get up and I fully love it! I got a size 10 and it fits just right, still loose enough to feel snuggly in but not so loose you catch a draft.
I have washed it and the size and shape has stayed in tact and so far it hasn't turned into a bobbly mess.

I literally have no complains about it. YAY!!

Also check out my new PJ Bottoms:


What things have been keeping you warm?

XO 'Til We Overdose - outfit post.

I've been basically wearing this outfit all the time, it's so easy and casual I think I've worn it out to a club, for drinks, to dinner, shopping and also to the South Wales blogger meet up last week. I'm so lazy it's too easy to throw it on and walk out the house in less than 10 mins.

Dress - H&M
Shirt - H&M

I picked up this amazing little bag from H&M too it was £10 and I love it, great for fitting keys, phone, mirror and money.

Headband - New Look
Necklace - ASOS & Claire's.

I always team everything with my Vans and I recently got these bad boys courtesy of Zalando.co.uk, super fast shipping and everything with an amazing size range, I can never find Vans in my baby feet size!

Leather Cedar Vans - Zalando.co.uk
 In other news, those of you who follow my Twitter will know that I've changed from Blackberry to iPhone, so hit me up with some fun things to do on there!

I also got another tattoo but will be posting that when I get it finished on Sunday ;) SO AWESOME!

Hope you are all well!

Unicorn Hair.

Hey friends!

I've been crazy busy, so sorry for the lack of posts! I went back to Devon this weekend to see my mum in her new house out in the middle of the countryside and decided to dye my hair. Older readers of my blog might remember my lilac and pink hair or more recently (although I never pictured it) I had turquoise hair. WELL I've gone back to lilac and baby pink dip-dye which I like to call - Unicorn Hair!

Cheese head! 

When I was home I managed to squeeze in some outfit pictures so will be posting alot more in the next couple of week - yay!

Hope everybody is well, anybody else been dying their hair?


I don't really know the deal with these Cosmopolitan Blog Awards but my best meatball and partner in crime Amelia is nominated in the Established Fashion Blog catagory, go check her blog and if you think she's as rad as I do then drop her a vote HERE :)

Animals On Dresses - outfit post

If there is one thing I love more than prints of animals IN clothing then it's animals printed ON clothing. Some of my older readers may remember these animal print related posts (Part 1, Part 2).

I saw this pretty little dress in H&M about 2 months ago and knew it had to be mine! Since then whenever I wear it I seem to had a good time so I'm guessing it's a pretty lucky/fun dress to have:

Animal Print Dress - H&M
Excuse the copious amounts of bruises on my arm!

Claw Necklace - Claire's Accessories.

The print on the dress is of Stags, Deers and Foxes. 
Since these awful pictures I've had my hair cut, no big difference but it's SO much nicer!

Any cute animal printed garments out there I should know about??

Boohoo Summer Is Over...

...but don't worry Winter brings amazing new clothes, shoes and accessories!

I get about 9000 emails a day from online and high-street stores about their new collections and yada yada but I always delete them! So this week I've made an effort to try and keep some just to see what's about and what the trends are (as I have little to no interest in fashion week) and suprisingly the one I've enjoyed the most is from Boohoo.com

I always thought Boohoo was a little cheap looking and some of it (and I still agree with this) is gross BUT amongst that I noticed some amazing pieces I now can't get my mind off - and it's super cheap too!

Here are my picks:

Faux-Fur Trimmed Cape

Shearling Buckle Brogue

Cord Shorts w/ Braces
I love this whole outfit and actually ordered the shorts.

Gold Lock Bag

Contrast Panel Dress.

Like I said I actually ordered the shorts but I'm stupid and ordered them to the wrong house oops!!

I'd just like to say a huge thankyou to all of those who still read and follow my blog, I know I've only be able to get on once a week recently but hopefully soon I can sort out doing every other day again :) Also if somebody could tell me why all of a sudden everybody has 'UK [insert genre] Blog' after their names then please do tell me what trick I'm missing out on!

What A/W items have been catching your eye?

A Shark In Jet's Clothing - outfit post.

'Sup! Another outfit post, another Blondie song title.

Been so busy this week with work and flying visits home to Devon, off there again Tues/Weds to sort out my house as my mum is moving and also after almost one whole year - GET MY HAIR CUT! Jeez words cannot explain how happy I am about that, nothing too drastic just sorting it out as you are about too see it has no shape it's just a straggly ass mess:

Print Dress H&M
Denim Shirt H&M

Faux-Shark Tooth Necklace - Rock n' Rose.
So awesome knew I had to have this as soon as I saw it! 

That's about as interesting as my life has been!

Seeing alot of people on Twitter off to the Look Show, totally jealous and also totally forgot it was on! Hope anyone going has a fab time!

Awesome Autumn.

I fully hate September, i hate rain I hate being cold/too poor to put the heating on and most of all I hate the freakin' tarantulas that feel they have the right to step foot inside your house.

The only thing I do love about September is being able to get excited about A/W clothes and accessories, everywhere is creeping in new things that are getting us ready for winter, and here are some of my faves:

Quilted PU Biker Jacket - Topshop.
I already have my coat for winter (I'll be posting soon) but I actually lose my faux-leather on a night out recently so will be needing a new one!

Triple Square Ring - ASOS
I only really do my rings big and this looks too perfect.

Fox Shawl - H&M
I'm all about animals on clothes, I need to hunt this down next payday.

Aztec Wolf Sweater - ART DISCO
I already own this awesome Aztec Owl sweater and now I totally want the pair!

Kitted Bodycon Dress - ASOS.
Amazing. Can't even picture my life without this.

Cross Necklace's - Sunken Rose

Platform Shoe Boots - Topshop.
Can't walk in heels this high so these are just a pipe dream. Amazing.

What things are you looking forward to about Winter?

You Can Go Your Own Way - outfit post!

I know, I know! I've been slack again on the ol' blog! But it's because I've started a new job and after about a month of un-employment I got back into a bad sleeping pattern so I've been catching up on rest all week.

As I said in my last outfit post my flat has hardly any natural light so it's hard to take a pic thats not grainy as hell BUT that doesn't mean I didn't:

Fleetwood Mac shirt - Topshop (ack I know)
Shorts - H&M

I'm a HUGE Fleetwood Mac fan so really couldn't resist this Rumours shirt when I saw it.
I really didn't want to accessorise much and just kept it simple with a pair of Vans.

Been watching Reading footage all weekend, so jealous of everyone who went I've been going for 6 years, took a break last year and went to IOW but this year took a festival break completely :(

I'm being 12 years old again and am off to see Taking Back Sunday though!
Hope you all had a good weekend!

What A Stud!

Being unemployed and living in town meant I had alot of time to window shop but no money to buy. Thankfully now I am employed (and get paid weekly) I can't wait to hit the shops hard!

Last weekend my best friend came up to visit me and we are both like magpies to anything studded, here are my favourite studalicious pieces I have been lusting after:

Spike Peep-Toe Heels - River Island £65.
I walk like a boy in heels but my BFF tried them on and they were AMAZING!

VECTRA Studded Slippers - Topshop £28.
Now these I can get on board with/will be buying next week!

Studded Clasp Bag - River Island £45.
Really nice and big, so tempted!

Studded Box Clutch - River Island £30.
This bag matches the first pair of shoes - so tiny but such a treat to the eyes!

MOTO Vintage Wash Denim Sparkle Stud Hotpants -  Topshop £75.
These are so Britney 2011 it hurts, they are too expensive but I am in love.

What shiny studded things have caught your eye? Link me so I can waste more money :p

Hope you have a great weekend!

Rip Her To Shreds - outfit post.

First up, thanks for all the lovely comments on my last post! Loved seeing what you all thought!

Second, my new flat has hardly any light so all my outfit posts look grainy and have gone to hell, but I'll try sort something soon.

Today my housemate decided he wanted to bleach his hair so I spent all day doing that and laughing at the awkward ginger stage, anyway here is what I wore for such an occasion:

Dress - River Island.
I kinda think it makes me look a bit like a waitress but I still dig it. 

Pair of blondes.
I've re-dyed his hair since then and it looks ALOT better, and he does have an arm it's just broken.

My VIPXO Scrabble ring that I basically never take off.
I'm real into things with my initial/s on.

Also late last night I had an email saying this blog would be in The Times today so that was kinda nice to see my silly face on page 24.

Hope you all had a great weekend!
