Spartoo: My final post

Hi All

Over the last six months I have posted weekly about the fabulous website Spartoo and the brands it has to offer. And now I am sad to say that this is my final post for the guys and gals over at Spartoo HQ.

It has been a real pleasure to show my readers all the items I have spotted on the webite that I thought would interest you from bags to shoes. I have also have the chance to be gifted with items monthly to review their quality and service the website provides.

I can honestly say each and every item I have received has had nothing but positive praise and customer service are always quick to respond to any queries over orders or voucher codes. Whilst I was given the opportunity to write for the site I also hosted a £50 voucher giveaway competition recently and I hope the winner is just as delighted with the product and customer service as I have been.

I have made a fair few posts on the website, if you missed out on any of them then just take a peek here.

These are some of the brands available from the site....


Irregular Choice

Nine West


So this is my final word on Spartoo; I would definately recommend anyone to take a peek at what this website has to offer. I will forewarn that it can take some time to find that perfect item but that is the wonder of this website; there are many hidden gems!

I also want to personally thanks Shelbe for all her help and advise throughout these months and also Adriana for all the confirmation emails of when my order has been dispatched etc :o)

Outfit of the Night: Red Stripes

Hi All!!

Me and The Rockettes performed at a charity gig the other night and I thought I would show you what I wore to go there.....

Top: Primark
Belt: Primark
Jeans: Oasis
Heels: Republic

Here's a little close up of my make-up, I did it really natural which was a change for a night time look but added some red lippy....

Lipstick: MAC Russian Red

Pretty simple outfit inspired by the nautical trend and I hope you liked it!


Spartoo spotlight: Buffalo

Hi All!!

The weather is trying it's hardest to get warmer so I thought I would have a sneek peek on the Spartoo website for a brand that has a few cute items you maybe interested in for the Spring/Summer season.

I came across the fab Buffalo brand and I have also previously posted about it here. But today I wanted to show you a few items I think will be great for your Summer wardrobe collection and there are many items available in the brand perfect for it.

Here are some fab items I believe could be teamed with day and night outfits. Look closer and you will see that some of them will also fit in with the Safari and Nautical trends that you should be rocking this year!


So what do you all think of these?

Tattoo Inspiration

Hi All!!

As I mentioned in a previous post I really need some new ink and have been looking at more photos for inspiration. At the moment I have cut it down to three kinds of tats i want next:
♥ Rose
♥ Small Heart
♥ Bird/feather related

Having said that I want all three but which first? Hmmm!! Here are some images I have seen that are helping me decide......

This last one is a biggie......

My favourtie animals are Peacocks and for over two years now I have been very keen on having a full tattoo of this stunning bird on my thigh. Drastic idea for most but I know it's something I want and wouldn't regret the only thing stopping me is the many sittings it would take and the pain! But having said that I don't quite want it as big as the one above, more closer to the size of this one....

Either way I need to be inked up soon and with pay day on Monday I think I should decide to do it this month otherwise that means ANOTHER month pondering!!

Anyone like any of these tattoo's in particular?

Outift of the Day: Casual Light Layers

Hi All!!

Not really anything special going on with this oufit but it's a simple casual look to achieve with layering.

Vest Top: H&M
Baggy top: Primark
Necklace: River Island

Leggings: Accessorize
Brogues: River Island

As the sun was shining a couple of times this week it was nice to wear something light for a change. I just hope that the weather gets brighter and warmer from now on, but having said that we all know April is around the corner - if anyones listening I hope you cancel 'April Showers' this year?!

Update on Bertie the puppy!

Hi All!!

I wanted to quickly update you on the healthy progress of Bertie who is Richard and his parents new puppy! They have had him for exactly a week now which I made a post about just here and as you will see he was very underweight and neglected!

This week has been eventful as we almost lost Bertie Tuesday night, he was very ill which meant he spent a night on a drip in puppy hospital. The vets advised us that he could possibly pass away that night, but luckily Bertie pulled through and has been getting better and better as each day passes. Although he is still so small for 10 weeks and underweight for a Bassett Hound at that age he seems to be very happy in his new home.

We took him for his first walk yesterday which was so funny, he hasn't quite figured out yet how to walk on a harness and what he is actually supposed to do. But for his first walk he did brilliantly... even with a lot off stopping and starting......

He is the cutest thing!

Haul: Hope Rosemary Designs

Hi All!!

If you remember I visited the Hanging Rail Fashion Market in Birmingham a couple of weeks ago which I posted about here and I really apologise that it has taken so long for me to post about it!

I have to say every table had something I really wanted to buy, but one thing caught my eye and I could not leave there without it......

Hand sewn double layer American Rooster tail feather Collar/Cape & Earrings
by Hope Rosemary

How stunning is this?!! I am not quite sure where and when I will wear this but it will break necks!!

If you are interested in visiting the next Hanging Rail Market then check out the Facebook events here I will be there again and if Hope Rosemary is there I will more then likely purchase another item off her. Once the website is all sorted I will be sure to post it here because the items she makes which are Taxidermy & Bone are so creative and unique.

I cannot fault everyone else who had tables at the market, I just couldn't afford to purchase anythin else on the day. I will make sure I post about the next market and upload photos of all the items I purchase.

New Addition to the family: Bertie!

Hi All!!

I was awoken today by Richard telling me that his parents were off to buy a new puppy to add to their family and he was going to pick me up in 30mins! So imagine the amount of mixed emotions that ran through my mind after being woken up out of my deep sleep after only getting in after 5am? I soon got over the fact that I had been woken up because I would be meeting a cute little puppy!

So we headed on over to the house where we bought him and here he is....

Bertie the Bassett Hound

Unfortunately he was the runt of the litter (the last to be purchased) and therefore quiet skinny. Whilst were there we didnt question this too much but afterwards we realised Bertie is far to tiny to just be labelled 'runt of the litter'.

He ate like he had never been fed before.. like literally like he was starving and then threw it all back up, I feel so sorry for the guy! He is booked in to visit the vets tomorrow so he can be checked out properly. These photos do not show just how bad he looked he had actually just eaten and we could tell the difference in his body- like he had filled up from a few bites!

Luckily he has pearked up now and is running around like he has always been here! Look out for more photos over the coming weeks!
