Sorry for the selfie overload – I hardly ever wear lipstick or blowdry my hair so I got overexcited!

It was my friend’s birthday a couple of weeks ago and we all went out to celebrate. Dinner at Vapiano (literally the stupidest system I have ever encountered, we basically queued separately, ate separately and then left) followed by clubbing at G.A.Y. which was awesome! We showed our age by dancing manically to 5ive and S Club, before traipsing all the way to Heaven, where we showed our age further by dancing manically to 5ive and S Club (unlike us, that never gets old)! Hailee Steinfeld performed her debut show in the UK and was fantastic.

I wore:

Black mesh top, by The Ragged Priest. I got it in Ad Hoc, this really cool shop that I passed on my Made in Chelsea walking tour (yes, I am THAT cool. Also it was a gift from a friend) last month.

I wanted so. much. stuff.

Ad Hoc

The sunglasses were £15 each and I wanted them ALL:

I really nearly bought the cat’s eye ones (from the black and white picture) but I always buy novelty sunnies and then don’t wear them because they actually never look as good as normal ones. I did manage to find a replacement pair for the (more subtle) cat eye sunnies that I broke on holiday though so that was good. And I got a discount on the top as one of the patches was coming off a bit. 🙂

I wore it with black treggings and booties (both from M&S) and my super old leather jacket (Warehouse) because you can’t really go wrong with a classic.

A few coats of Revlon Black Cherry lipstick and I was ready to go!

I was running late so ended up taking a black cab there, and couldn’t resist trying to take a taxi selfie. I would have taken one on the night bus home as a compare and contrast exercise but it was crowded and I was embarrassed!

Random funky sweet shop we walked past:

Wasn’t convinced by her outfit to be honest….

But, like I said, she was brilliant!

Balloons!

These were released at the end, causing my friend to flail so hard that my phone (I was trying to film) was thrown out of my hands into the crowd, so I ended my night scrambling around on the floor trying to find it before someone crushed it!

Which I did! 😀

Thanks for reading, have a great weekend!

Felt pretty smug reading this week’s Grazia and seeing this feature on hearty sunglasses, including the Asos pair I bought 4 months ago.

So ahead of the game… :-p

I’ve been wanting a pair ever since seeing Samantha in this awesome outfit in SATC:

Hope everyone’s having a great day and enjoying the sunshine!

I tried and failed to resist these hearty sunnies from Asos-  I will be wearing them all day regardless of the fact that London (and I) haven’t seen sun in what feels like months!

Hearty glassesGlasses: Asos, Balloons: Tesco, Self-indulgent posing: model’s own.

The only problem is that with these darn reflective lenses, you can see your arm and camera in them, so everyone knows that you had hours of fun taking selfies in your room like a loser! ;-p

In other news, I got my hurr did (I don’t know why I have to say it like that but I can’t seem to stop…).

I got more layers added in which I’m hoping will sort out the triangle hair problem I’ve been having while my bob has been growing out. 🙂

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day, whatever you’re doing!

I know, I know- I’m supposed to be starting to think about autumn and snoods and rusty orange colours and pumpkins etc., but I am going for a long weekend in Crete with some girlfriends next week and am thus still firmly in summer mode!

With that in mind, I am really feeling daisies at the moment. Here is a collection of some daisy themed stuff I had lying around…

Sunglasses: Accessorize (Ok, these aren’t actually mine. My Mum and sister have matching pairs and I nick them occassionally…)

I wasn’t actually going to include this super-cheesy photo, until I realised that I had inadvertently posed in front of a big picture of a daisy that my Grandmother had painted on her window years ago…!

Green strap top: Dorothy Perkins (one of my most used items this summer!)

daisytop

This was Day 2 of my time in Athens, after I’d burnt my shoulders and thighs horribly on Day 1 and could only wear soft and light clothing!

Daisy necklace: bought at the Brooklyn Flea Market last winter, worn A LOT since.

Daisy flip-flops: Accessorize

On the top left are 2 daisy clips, that came with a pair of wedges that I bought in Greece about 10 years ago. I love that they are detachable as it means that a.) my shoes can be a bit more sophisticated and less cute, as the occasion requires and b.) I can put daisies on all my other stuff too! Win-win. 🙂

eg.

Out for burgers the other night: Top: Primark. Jeans: Monsoon. Shoes: Office. Jacket: Warehouse

daisydress

I also tried on this amazing dress in a shop in Athens called BSB. I loved the pattern so much but ultimately just couldn’t make the shape work for me. From some angles it looked ok, but I have learned the hard way that if you feel uncomfortable in something in the shop, you are definitely never going to wear it in real life!

Drew Barrymore daisies

Can you tell I am still crushing on mid-nineties Drew Barrymore…?! That woman knew how to make daisies a look!

I hope you all have a daisy kind of day!

shorts

I’m in Athens at the moment, visiting my parents, and these are all the shorts I brought…that are currently lounging uselessly in a cupboard, unable to be used as I have about 25 mosquito bites on my legs alone, and 2 weird patches of sunburn where my sunscreen obviously didn’t reach. In short (pun intended), my legs are not looking their best right now! 

Now, where did I put my maxi-dresses…?

(Shorts L-R: H&M, Dorothy Perkins, Warehouse, River Island. Sunnies L-R: River Island, Amy Cavill for Anthropologie, River Island, Peacocks)

Hope everyone’s having a great summer!

I was in Aldo the other day and fell completely in love with all their sunglasses. I tried on practically every pair, and it almost killed me to leave empty handed but I was trying to be good! (Tbh, I’ll probably go back… What?! I get brownie points for trying… right? :-p ) They are all £10, and in store they were 2 for £16! (I love cheap sunglasses due to my rather annoying penchant for sitting on them or forgetting they are on my head and leaning over railings!)

Aren’t they cute?! I don’t usually spend much time in Aldo so I was very pleasantly surprised! Their jewellery is nice too, lots of clean shiny gold…

Oh dear.

:-O

Happy Friday and have a great long weekend everybody! 😀
