Happy New Year

Heels - £35 Missguided (here)
Spike Bracelet - £6 Diamond Petal (here)

This post is a little different to my normal post's as I only usually post what I actually wore out, I never just get dressed up to shoot pictures as I think fashion blogs should be about real wearable fashion.  

Tonight will be the first time since I was 18 not to go to a NYE rave or big party, I'm actually going to a small onsie party!  I found the concept of a onsie party a bit different, knowing that there will be a bunch of grown guys walking around in onsies will be a funny sight, so hey why not!

So this post is inspired as a 'would be' NYE outfit.  The sparkles and glitter is so new years eve.  I always go all out with my NYE outfits, it should be all about sparkles, bright colours and fun.  I actually bought this dress about two years ago, it was dirt cheap probably about £5, the sparkles drew me in!  I don't know why it's been sitting in my wardrobe all this time, I cant wait to actually wear it out now.

I hope you guys like my outfit, I'm sure all your outfits will be amazing!! I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and hope you have a wonderful time whatever you do tonight.  See you in 2013.

Hugs and Kisses xxx

Dress - Primark
Heels - Peacocks
Bag - £6 Priamrk
Body chain - £10 Aldo (in store) 

Every girl has there 'LDB' that they turn to when they have nothing to wear or want to keep it simple, this is mine.  I have actually had this dress for about 4 years and at only £13 it works wonders! it clinches everything in, only if the pictures were clearer the material is actually similar to a Herve Leger dress.

I wore this outfit on a night out on Saturday, I kept it simple with black and gold,  I haven't worn my body chain since Morocco with casual outfits, so I  wanted to try it with a dressy look. I hope you like it.

Black and White

Dress - Missguided (Similar)
Jacket - Borrowed
Clutch - £6 Primark
Hat - £ £10 H&M

I wore this outfit on Sunday, I actually didn't wear it for long as I was on my way to a family photo shoot.  I didn't completely change out of the outfit, I wore the dress, I just took off the tights and jacket and changed into heels (you can see the heels in this post).  You might also recognise this dress  from the boat party post (here),  as you can see from this post I paired the dress with pieces that gave it a more day look.

The family photo shoot was amazing, about 15 of us came, yes my family is massive! it was such a great family day out.  I paid only £20 from a Groupon deal that would of normally cost £300 for such a big family!

Yellow Midi Dress

Dress - £28 Asos (sold out)
Heels - Peacocks (old)
Earrings - £3 Primark
Clutch bag - £6 Primark

I can't believe I haven't blogged for a week, were the heck did time go seriously!  I did however go to the gym more than usual last week (pat on the back) which kind of took over.

I wore this outfit to yet another surprise party I threw, I now think of myself as the surprise party guru, future career maybe??!  This time it was for my little brothers 23rd birthday in a Ugandan restaurant.  

I having been itching to wear this dress since I bought it back in January, its definitely a statement dress with the bright yellow colour and bold black slashes.  It fits like a treat, the only thing I probably will do is make it slightly shorter, maybe knee length before I wear it again.

Happy Monday everyone! I hope your week has got off to a good start :-)  This is what I wore on Friday to see the last installment of Twilight.  It is definitely a must see, I cant believe its finally over, oh how time flies.

I'm loving this over sized cardy from Missguided, its so comfy.  My new boots are going to be stuck to my feet for a while they are just so comfortable and give me a lot of height....perfect combination.

Look Magazine Feature

Look who we have here.. little old me in Look magazine! (no pun intended hehe) When I first started this blog almost a year ago I never would of thought to see my face in a magazine.  When I found out I wanted to scream the office down with all the excitement.  It's safe to say I couldn't wait to tell my friends and family.  I had such a fat grin on my face when I went to buy the magazine :-)

The feature was on how to wear Checkered items, you can see my post on it here.

Jewellery - Diamond Petal
Bag - £12 Select
Skinny Jeans - £12 Primark
Scarf - £3 Primark
Hat - £3 Primark
Leather Jacket - Boohoo (old)
T-Shirt - £20 Iwhore

Look what we have here... some outside shots! It felt really weird taking pictures outside again, I wish I could take them more often but when I get home its too dark.  This is what I wore yesterday during the day when I was out and about.  There is nothing I love more then throwing on a pair of jeans and  t shirt,  working in an office were you cant dress like this makes me miss it even more!

It was me and my boyfriends 8th, yes 8th anniversary yesterday, gosh time flies.  So in the evening I changed into something a bit more dressy and we headed for dinner at a Mexican restuarant and finally watched Skyfall which is amazing by the way!  Did you guys have a good weekend? x

Dress - £15 H&M
Earrings - H&M
Bag - £3 H&M Sale
Heels - £12 Primark

Sorry I have been a bit MIA lately,I have had a lot going on with work, but what has mostly been keeping me busy was; until the weekend gone, planning a surprise party for my cousin.  I enjoy planning parties and even planned a surprise party for my mums 40th a couple years ago.  I planned a small dinner for 25 in a private room in Turkish restaurant   It was perfect, when the birthday girl walked in she was so shocked that she walked back out hehe best reaction ever!

This is what I wore to the dinner.  This H&M dressing is amazing, I fell in love the minute I saw it.  Maybe I'm a little too in love with it, but I could see it on the red carpet!  I added a neon bag and matching earrings also from H&M. I have a H&M near my work place so always buy in store, I just had a look on their site to provide links for each item but they don't have them online. I find this a lot on the H&M site which is quite frustrating  but all items are in store now.

I have a few ideas of also wearing this dress a bit more casual with converses and litas, its definitely going to be one of my winter staples.

White Party

Dress - Missguided (similar)
Heels - Ebay (here)
Door knocker earrings - £2 Primark

This post is so late! I have been coming home at 10 pm every day, hence no outfit post this week.  These pictures were taken at a faboulous white boat party I went to on the Thames for a friends birthday on Saturday.  I never realised untill this party that I only own one white dress!!  The party was amazing and being on a boat just added a glamourous element to it.  We kept joking to everyone that we were going to P diddys boat party haha

I hope you like what I wore.  I included some iPhone pictures at the bottom just so you can see how lovely it was on the boat and of course me getting my pose on.  I also love the picture of my cousin in her long white dress, doesn't she look like shes on a catwalk!

Jeans Day

Jeans - Newlook 
Vest Top - Primark
Bag - £12 Select
Blazer - £15 H&M
Necklace - £7 Diamond Petal (here)

Hello Shorter hair! so yeah my extensions lasted only a week and a half! As much as I loved them they always start feeling heavy and I always miss my own hair, it was fun while it lasted.  I took the plunge and dip dyed my own hair.  I love it, but as I thought it has taken a toll on my ends and their super dry at the moment,  Hopefully a few conditioning sessions will do the job.

I wore this yesterday to run a few errands, it was raining like mad yesterday, as you can see my umbrella has made a little appearance in my bag, probably not the last one either...sigh.

I love this crop top, and since I wore it in May in this post here, I have been wanting to wear it again.  When I bought this peplum skirt the idea for this outfit came straight away, all I needed was somewhere to go!

I wore this on Saturday to celebrate Uganda's 50th Independence, I may not have mentioned before but I'm half Ugandan.

Checkered Shirt

Shirt -Borrowed
Skirt - H&M
Spike Necklace £8 Diamond Petal (here)
Bag - £12 Select
Boots - Missguided

Hey guys, hope your all well! As you may have noticed I have added some extensions to my hair.  I have been wanting to dip dye my ends, but there dry as it is and didn't want to risk damaging them.  When I decided to get extensions I thought why not change it up even more and go really long! when my hair is out it covers my whole back.  

This is what I wore to work today, my most relaxed look at work.  I didn't sleep at home last night, which was very last minute. with no fresh clothes to wear to work, I took the opportunity to raid through my cousins wardrobe and borrowed her lovely checkered top.

Hat - £9 H&M
Bag - £12 Select

Hey guys, I have been a bit awol lately, I totally forget to mention I was spending the weekend in Germany, weird thing to forget! works been so busy it kinda just sprung up on me.  My aunt lives in Germany, to be exact Stuttgart so I normally go every year for about 3 days.  This trip has been my best yet, I went to the crazy Octoberfest, what a amazing and crazy experience.  Everyone drinking massive sized beers, jumping on tables and this was only at 11 am, imagine how crazy it was at night!  I also went to watch a ballet, a first for me, these people have mad skills, I take my hat off to them.

Back to the outfit I wore this to the cinema to watch The Looper yesterday, the film is ok, nothing amazing.  I love this dress it has a vintage vibe, but I Feel like its gone shorter since I bought it, have I gone taller in the past 3 years.... I wish!

I haven't colour blocked in a while, today I wanted to feel sunny even though the weather looked gloomy.
I'm a bit bummed because its starting to get dark before I get home from work, so its so hard to take pictures outside, does anyone have the same problem?  But i found this wall near my house that will get me by!

Cut out top

Wedges - £25 Garage Shoes
Skirt - £32 Ebay
Top -  Rare Fashion
Ring - £7 Diamond Petal
Necklace - Old
Bracelet - Newlook

I'm posting this outfit 5 days late, shame on me! I wore this to the cinema on Friday to watch Savage, what a great film, not what I expected which made it even better.

Summers officially over, boo! I don't know when I will next wear a skirt or shorts which is so depressing.  I know the UK has freak weather so I'm still holding out for one last heatwave.. A lot to ask right.
To all of you still enjoying some nice weather, please please send some our way!
