My experience with Aliexpress

Aliexpress is a somewhat controversial website similar to eBay. They sell *very* inexpensive items from China, such as clothes, stationery and cute kawaii toys. I’ve seen several wishlist posts from bloggers featuring items from Aliexpress, but I’ve never seen a review, which made me slightly sceptical of the quality of products and the reliability of receiving items from sellers. I decided to go ahead and order a few items from my wishlist to see how long they would take to…

Cute Accessories from Prairie Charms

Cute Accessories from Prairie Charms! Yesterday I received the most adorable package in the post: a mystery bag from Prairie Charms, a handmade accessories boutique. The mystery bag cost me only £5 plus delivery, and everything I got was really cute! 

My watch was less than £2?

I’ve seen several blog posts about the ‘map watch’ that everyone seems to have right now, and I really wanted to get a similar one. I had a look on eBay and found it for only £1.59 with free delivery! They have several other designs, and I fell in love with the butterfly one. You can also choose the watch strap colour from white, black or brown. As it came from China, the watch took a few weeks to arrive, but I…

I got a scrapbook!

It seems like everyone and their mum has a scrapbook, and I’m totally following the trend. I’ve wanted a scrapbook for a while, especially since starting University, so I can keep track of my pictures and memories. Project Life is probably the most popular scrapbook right now, but I wanted to get a more customisable / traditional journal-style scrapbook. I’ve been looking for the perfect scrapbook for me, and thanks to Aleelily, I came across La De Dah. 

Wherever I Go

I made a music video! I’ve been living in London since I started my BA in September, and I love it here. There are so many things going on, so many sites to see, and it’s beautiful. I wanted to capture my experiences of London on camera, and the perfect opportunity arose – Mark Knopfler (from Dire Straits) is running a competition to create a music video for his latest song “Wherever I Go” from his new album. Of course,…

My University Bedroom | George Home

Just a quick warning: This post is very picture-heavy!  I love my University bedroom. It’s smaller than my one at home, but it’s cosy (despite the heating not working properly), and I like having my own ensuite bathroom. Since September, I’ve been slowly making this room more homely and I’m finally happy with it, thanks to George Home, who sent me some lovely homeware items! 

Woman In Black

First up, I apologise for the crappy iPhone-quality picture! Last night I went to see Woman In Black 2 with my friend, so of course I decided to wear black. I decided to write up a quick outfit of the day post because I actually made an effort and straightened my hair for the first time in forever. This skater dress is from Lipsy a few years ago, and it’s still one of my favourite dresses for going out because it fits…
