Trends: Animal Print

Hi All!!

So August and our so called 'British Summer' is coming to an end and Autumn/Winter are on their way. I don't know about you but i'm already having a look around for key items that will be on trend and keep me snug right through until Spring.

I am delighted that Animal print is back on the runway as a must have in every fashionista's wardrobe. It's widley known that you either love or hate animal print; I however love love love it! My favourite print is Zebra out of all the choices.... faux of course. But it has to be said sometimes its rare that you can find animal print items that look good, borderline tacky but nice tacky if this makes any sense? I mean some prints that are around just don't look... right and I cannot be doing with that in my wardrobe!!!!

Anyways, here are just a few items/looks I like of the new trend. I could have posted far more images but you'll see more items in stores and online in no time....

I especially love the idea of mixing leopard print and red heels, I will definately be trying this!What are your thoughts?

Minx Nails

Hi All!

Across the road from where I work in Birmingham there is the award winning nail salon Marco Benito who provide high quality in nail care & hair removal services. I have known and visited this salon a fair few times in the last 4/5 years specifically for eyebrow threading. Walking past there the other day I noticed in the window that they now specialise in Minx Nails which has been the latest craze in nail art. If Minx Nails is new to you then celebrities such as Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and so much more are all rocking the latest designs.

I was so excited so see this as i've always wanted funky nail art like this. So as soon as I saw the sign and I knew this had to be my Birthday treat to myself; which is coming up in 4 weeks time (bummer!). Although I am confident that I will definately be treating myself to these; I am undecided on leopard print or polka dots? Hmmm! I had a look at the current foils Benito's has in stock and these too were at the top for me!

What do you think?

Wishlist ♥

Hi All!!

I know we are still in Summer.. although it's not been much of one I am really liking this coat from River Island....

It looks so cosy, the only detail about it i'm not really into are the patterns on the stripes. If you go on the website or take a look instore as it's not too clear in this photo.

I may still invest in it though, amongt a couple of other winter coats. I'm really like A/W trends, watch out for a upcoming post about it soon.

Have you seen your winter coat yet?

Outift of the Night & Haul

Hi All!!

The other weekend was my boyfriends best mate, Daryls 21st birthday night outing and also Richard's kickboxing annual night out... I know i'm quite behind with this post... but I just thought i'd show you what I wore....

Whole outfit was bought in the sales at bargain prices
Top: River Island £6
Skirt: River Island £15
Heels: Faith £25

Close up of the heels:

I adore this skirt so much and for to get it in the sale for so cheap when it originally cost £50 is a wicked bargain. As you can see I was mixing up the gold with a lil bit of hippy....

Hmmm.. well not quite! I don't know why but I always pull that same face after a few drinks... can you say fish lips lol! Followed by a group photo.....

Never say never...

Hi All!!!

Do you remember the post I made about these....

Rule number one: NEVER rush about in them, especially on staircases

Yes thats right folks, I fell down the stairs in them!! How silly do I feel haha!! I'm perfectly fine and so are my heels; just have a few bruises on my legs but nothing a bit of MAC concealer won't fix.

I just thought i'd make a quick post about this funny scenario. Don't get me wrong i'm still in love with the beauts, and they're so comfy. But I will never wear them running down the stairs again!!
