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, as I’m a massive fan of Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler, I instantly jumped out of bed (I’ve been recovering…

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 so well. I could totally join the Coven from American Horror Story in this outfit… Anyway, I really enjoyed Woman in Black…

My Rose Fairy Lights from Blaze On

  Today’s post is about the gorgeous fairy lights that I’m using to decorate the pin-board above my desk at university. Blaze On, an ethical company that sells fairy lights and candles, were kind enough to send me some handmade fairy lights to review. After much deliberation (they have so many beautiful designs), I eventually chose the “Chelsea Rose” ones in the colour “Summer’s Bouquet”, which is a lovely variety of pinks and cream. I got the smaller length, which comes with 20 LED roses – the perfect size to display around my university pin-board. I’ll be writing a post showing all…

Clear Plastic Makeup Storage

 I’m going to University in less than two weeks, so I’ve been buying a few storage items for my room in halls. I love the look of Muji makeup organisers, and everyone seems to be obsessed with them right now. Muji is a bit pricey for me, soI found a similar one on eBay for only £4.64 with free delivery!   This storage container is intended to hold 24 lipsticks, but I don’t have anywhere near that amount, so I’ve added my mascaras, lipglosses, lipbalms and a few other products to fill up the spaces. I’ve also got a small set of…

Luxury Jewellery from Kuka-Me

Today I’m gushing over the beautiful jewellery that I received in the post this morning… In June, I was lucky enough to win £120 to spend at luxury jewellery website Kuka-Me, from the lovely Catherine (at Not Dressed As Lamb). I spent quite a long time deciding what I wanted, because all of their jewellery is absolutely gorgeous, but I am definitely happy with what I eventually chose. All of Kuka-Me’s jewellery is made in the UK, from 90% recycled 18ct gold and silver – pretty cool huh? So, what jewellery did I pick out? The Summer Dreaming Wreath Ring immediately caught my eye,…

My Windowsill

This may seem a tad random, but strangely enough, I’ve decided to take pictures of my window and what’s on it for today’s blog post… (yeah I’m insane). My curtains are from Dunelm, and they match my bedding and walls. The bird print is adorable, and duck egg blue is my favourite colour. Dunelm have lots of other items in the ‘duck egg beautiful birds’ collection – I want it all! My windowsill itself may look a little bare, but my dressing table is directly in front of it, so it’s a bit difficult to reach with my lamp and mirror in the…
