"In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different".. Coco Chanel. I shall live and die by this quote. Be who you want to be, not who someone wants you to be, it honestly is the difference between being happy and not. I aim to blog about fashion and all that surrounds it.

Street life - Student life

Life's all a bit over the shop at the moment. I don't really know what's happening but I'm just making the most of trying to enjoy the nice bits of weather we're having and my last few weeks at The Cottage with Hannah. We've been yolo'n a bit and just enjoying things when we can.

Now, these trousers are a bit of a issue. It's a love hate relationship. I love the style and trackie-ness BUT, I wish they were high waisted. They would be so much more amazing and a much more prominent piece to my wardrobe. However, they are not. So I have to improvise and find myself taking them off after a few hours. I shall continue to persevere... Or maybe I'll just start looking for a high waisted pair to fully satisfy my needs. 

At the rate I'm going, I am literally going to turn orange. But I love this little top, I've been eyeing it up for weeks and the Easter Bunny (aka Mother & Father D) got it for me along with a hugeeeeee bunny (chocolate of course).

West End Girl

I need sectioning, it's official. Or I need my bank card confiscated, one of the two.  This week I have gone crazy, what with my last ever student loan and grant hitting my bank account and everywhere seeming to be jumping on that with discounts for students, its SO hard to resist.   Or not to resist in my case. 

A girl's gotta do what a girls gotta do though and when River Island presents itself with a 20% off opportunity you have to seize life by the horns and frantically buy anything your little heart desires!!

To be fair I have been wanting a proper pair of high-waisted 80s style jeans for ages now. I keep mentally making outfits in my head revolving around them, until now! R.I's 'mom' jeans are da bomb! Sadly, theres no knee rips going on but, give it a few months and I'm sure I'll be reinventing these bad boys. For now, I'm off to the 80's.

Maxipeel Madness

Okay. I feel like we've all been here with me saying 'Im sorry, I've been so busy - blahblah blahhhh'. But I have. 

We just had our two week break at Uni, which was much needed due to the stress that built up with our Final Major Project we handed in. I shall blog about it eventually as I was living in a world of all things Pink whilst working on my brand 'Pink Popcorn'. But for now, more importantly.     Back to the fashion!!!! 

Yesterday wasn't a particularly sunny day down here on the coast but the sun was so warm when it was there, it was a battle all day with the haze that was setting in but seems student finance is in and I have OBVIOUSLY been to the shops already...... I braved it.   Your welcome :)

Sometimes I go in H&M and I literally cannot believe the pricing of items; it's brilliant and makes it impossible to resist. For example, this oversized maxi... £7.99.   £7.99!!!!!!!! I know, bargain.  And it is literally so comfy, I love the raw side seam split gonna be a main contender for Summer Beer garden sessions. There are plenty more posts to come with all my new buys!
