OOTW | 14.09.14 - 20.09.14

Slightly overdue, I know, but here you have it: another OOTW post! Having spent the last week packing and moving back into my uni house my blog has been a little sidelined this week unfortunately, so sorry my loves but I promise to get back into the swing of things from here on out. Anyway, seeing as my last instalment of this sort of post went down so well it seemed only right I do another, plus it gives me the extra push to try not to look like a complete troll each and every day.

  Sunday spent bowling.


September is definitely a month of change. It not only welcomes the arrival of a new season but it also sees the return - or start perhaps for some of you - of university. Basically, your days are soon to be filled with early mornings, rainy walks to campus and if you're a keen fresher, then probably a generous hangover to nurse. Between all of that though, Freshers week is still easily one of the funnest parts of student living. Cheap drinks, new or re-aquaintances and a brimming social calendar make all of the late nights, bad decisions and inevitable freshers flu worth it.

That said, what I have concocted up for you is a little list of my own freshers essentials to hopefully see you not only through student nights out, but also to prepare both you and I for the aftermath which will most likely be spending the following day in a series of introductory lectures, more than likely asking yourself why you just had to have that very last drink...

So this week has played out a lot like the last - I promise my life is not always this dull - except this time around I'm reunited with my macbook and *BONUS* a brand new tub of Nutella. This has meant a lot of laptop days, breakfast waffles and a near run-in with a pair of Dr Martin 1461 patent shoes (that limited Asos 25% off student discount was lethal!). I've actually not bought anything apart from some pub grub this week amazingly, although that's partly because of the pretty beaded anklet bought for me by my mum from her holiday in Majorca, as well as having already started mentally compiling a Christmas list. Premature perhaps, but in my mind its never too early to be thinking about old St Nick. So far I've got my eye on the new Jo Malone scent, an abundance of Lush bath products and a good read. I know, I have the soul of an 80 year old.

Have a lovely weekend everybody

OOTW | 03.09.14 - 09.09.14

We've all done it; by 'that' I mean indulged in a little #OOTD post on Instagram. I love having a peek at girls' daily attire so the hashtag certainly isn't wasted on me. The concept of OOTW posts however are new territory to me - something that I discovered from shamelessly binge watching Bee from idressmyselff 's YouTube channel - that said, I thought I would photograph my weekday outfit choices (because the weekend was unfortunately waaay too busy). Sadly I can't say the week was overly interesting, just lots of odd jobs and trying not to constantly rotate wearing my new pairs of jeans for the sake of this post as a matter of fact. I wonder does anyone else find that when they buy something they l.o.v.e they start to develop serious attachment issues? Well this is borderline obsession... 

 Kylie Jenner appropriate.



As fall approaches, so does the first term back at university. For me, it's my third and final year of studying in an art degree which can only mean one thing: a shit load of stress. I already need to be researching for my dissertation being that its due in January, therefore between the sketchbooks, ring binders and having my hands basically nailed to a desk for the next year, one thing I don't want to worry about is my wardrobe. That said, here is a collective haul of the pieces I picked up to try and make my morning routine a little easier...


Being a creative soul and studying art, I love the aesthetic aspect of blogging. That said, I thought I would start documenting my everyday life in a photo diary series, simply as an outlet without clogging up my followers' Instagram feeds cos oh boy can that be annoying. Here you'll typically find daily outfits, creature comforts and the odd peek at a new purchase, I'm sure...

How's your week been looking? Mine's consisted of a lot of winding down ready for the first day back at university, eep! A lot of reading, some light shopping (say hello to my new leather and denim) and a Costa cooler here or there has been total bliss. Now all I need is for my poorly laptop to come out of the Apple store, fingers crossed by Thursday!




It's officially the end of August which, for me, can only mean one thing: the second edition of my 'monthly buys' posts. The month was made up of mine and Dave (the boyfriend) 's three year milestone, a flatlining Macbook *cry* and a day at the races for my belated birthday.
