New In


I bought these items on my recent mini splurge! it seems quite a lot, but if you actually look at the prices it didnt cost much at all.  We can safely say this is more of a summer shop then winter, but I'm so done with winter.

Mesh Top

Trousers - £12 Primark - Heels - £12 Primark - Top - Missguided - Earrings & Bracelet - Diamond Petal - Clutch - £6 Primark

Hey guys! I hope your ok, I feel like I haven't blogged for ages.  This week has been so busy for me, it's just gone by so quick.  So busy in fact that I slept for 12 hours straight yesterday just because I was so exhausted. 

I wore this outfit to my cousins 24th birthday on Friday.  We had a nice girly night in at my other cousins house, just drinking and eating with about 10 girls.  

I went for a comfortable but dressy look, just in case we felt spontaneous and decided to go to a bar, but we ended up staying in the whole night.  The top is gorgeous and sexy, I love it!

Hope you are all having a good weekend x

London Fashion Week

Heels - £12 Primark - Trousers - £7 H&M sale - Peplum top - £12 New Look - Necklace - Diamond Petal - Bag - Gift

For those of you who follow me on Instagram you know I was lucky enough to get tickets to attend a show at London Fashion week.  I was so excited as it was my first time!  I went to the DAKS show on Saturday.
The show was amazing, I never knew much about DAKS before but they had a pretty good range, I would say similar to Burberry.  All my pictures are grainy as I took them off my Iphone, but have a few on Instagram.

What I actually enjoyed more was being a part of the atmosphere outside, seeing all the lovely and crazy outfits everyone was wearing.  I'm such a newbie I didn't know you can actually just go there and take it all in, catch some celebrities walking around and also see your fave bloggers without having a ticket, how cool! I would recommend anyone from London to go if you have time.

This is the outfit I wore, I wanted to wear a few big trends of the moment so choose this peplum top and floral pants, hope you like the outfit.

Liebster award

I have been nominated for a Liebster award! Three lovely bloggers nominated me, it’s just lovely you guys were sweet enough to consider me as one of your fave bloggers so thank you Essie from Essie richie, Dave Ole from Male Fashion Uk and Sophie Harris from Sophie Does Fashion.  I have picked Essie's questions to answer only because she most recently nominated me and I'm sure you guys haven't got time to read 33 answers!

So this is the deal…

The Rules:

·                     Answer the 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you.
·                     Nominate 5 favourite bloggers of your choice who have less than 200 followers.
·                     ASK 11 new interesting questions to your nominees.


My Answers:

1.   Describe your personal style in three words.
Girlie, Edgy, Experimental

2. What is your favourite season and why?
Summer of course! I'm always freezing cold so I hate winter, it doesn't help that I have poor blood circulation especially in my hands and feet.  In terms of fashion I love wearing dresses and summery colours, I just don’t see any point in dressing really nice then having to cover it all in a big winter jacket!

3. What is the one thing you would like to undo?
This is a hard one, I guess the best thing to say is nothing because you learn from everything you go through in life whether good or bad.

4. What´s your best childhood memory?
 Definitely the time I spent with my mum, she died when I was 10.

5.  One fashion trend you don´t like!
            People wearing see through leggings, that’s a sin lol
6.  Heels or flats?
  I would like to say both.  But as I'm short  heels win.

7.  How do you spend your free time?
 Chilling with my boyfriend and family.
8. What plans do you have for your blog in the future?
Keep improving the quality of my pictures, maybe add a health and fitness aspect to it, but most importantly keep having fun!

9. Who is your favourite youtuber and why?
 I Have only just started getting into Youtube recently, Shirley Beniang is my fave fashion Youtuber she is gorgeous and so down to earth.  This one is random but I also like a body building Youtuber called Just Add Muscle, they have great tips on eating well and how to work out.

10.  Best book you´ve read so far.
Rich Dad poor dad, this book will open up your mind in many ways.  If your into business like myself you will learn so many business skills, but I think everyone can learn about life skills in general.

11. What are your goals for 2013?
Continue building my business Diamond Petal and buy my first house.

So the 5 people I would like to nominate our:

The Suker for Fashion

Valentines Day Wishlist


 From top to bottom: Dress 1 - Dress 2 - Dress 3 - Dress 4

This is my Valentines day wishlist, to be honest it's more of a ' I wish these dresses were an option' list!
I'am going dinner and cinema with my boyfriend on Friday, but nothing fancy enough to justify buying a new dress.. sigh.  All the dresses from Missguided, yes I do have a slight obsession with them, I just find everything I need there and they have great prices.

Hope you like my options.  What have you guys got planned for Vday? or are you avoiding it at all cost lol

Cut Out Dress

Hey guys, hope your all well.  I have been ill for the whole week, I hate having that weak helpless feeling.  This look was actually from Saturday gone, but I have been too weak to blog.

Fyi, I got these shoes on sale from Zara last Friday, there amazing and amazingly cheap!  Hope you like the outfit x

Hair Dressing


Happy Sunday Everyone! I thought I would hit you up with a different kind of post today, still about fashion but more about hair then outfits!  On Tuesday me and my cousin Mariam (in the pictures with me above) went to support my other cousin by agreeing to be hair models for her course.

She studies hair dressing and is in her final year, her final assignment was to create 3 very different and unusual hairstyles.  I guess they are marked on creativity, speed and how neat the hair looks.
For me and Mariam it was a fun day out, getting our hair done and playing models! They also had professional photographers there... we slyly felt like stars haha

She added mad long extensions to my hair, fake flowers and twisted the front bit, it only took her 20 minutes, amazing.  For Mariam she curled her hair, raised a bit of the middle bit and as creative as she is used Mariam's necklace as a hair piece.  I named Mariam Queen Sheba and I was Goldie Locks haha

As you can see from the last two pictures when I took out the extensions and was able to rock the hairstyle with my own hair, leaving in the front twist and flower.
