As sad as I was to wave farewell to the über stylish shoe collection on ShoeDazzle, I was quickly consoled when once I took full advantage of their closing down sale. Bagging myself 3 pairs of gorgeous shoes for £30 instead of the £70 odd pounds each they should have been. Now, usually I would share such a find with everyone but I was too busy frantically adding to basket and rushing through the checkout procedure before anymore of my beloved selections ran out of stock. Not to worry, I’m sharing now 🙂

Glittery Black T-Bar Shoes


Tribal skirt and Orange Leopard print top

I’m loving this tribal print pencil Skirt from River Island for the summer days ahead (fingers crossed). Great to dress up or play it down for day by teaming with an oversized tee. I’ve opted for this equally bold rust orange tee from eBay outlet featuring a large leopard print heart. Tucked in for a figure hugging smart casual look. You could always play it safe by teaming a statement tribal print with a black or white top but I like the loud clash of the animal print and it’s still along the same theme. Let them hear you coming, keep it loud!

I’ll Miss You Jack & Rose




I’ve been begging for years for the powers that be to re-release Titanic so I could see it once more on the big screen. To my absolute joy and excitement, not only were my prayers answered, my wish came true with bells on – Titanic 3D! You can be blazey about some things, but not the Titanic (cue an endless barrage of film quotes of Titanic proportions. Pun absolutely intended! 🙂 )

Needless to say this was an opportunity I couldn’t miss. Despite the over inflated price of £9 excluding 3D glasses (we brought our own!) it was well worth the trip to bid farewell to old Jack once more. And yes I sobbed my way through the sinking even though I know exactly what was coming, word for word, scene by scene.

Custom Raybands glitter nail polish

I’m no stranger to improvising myself but I had to tip my hat to blogger Brit for her unconventional use of nail varnish. Slicking on a layer or two of her favourite polishes, she’s updated everyday items, giving them a cool new lease of life. Read the full post here

Birthday Beaut

It’s my cousin’s birthday soon and I want something a little special for her party. These will be “spot on”!

10 x Personalised Party Invites by HoneyApple £2.10 auction on ebay or £3.50 ordered direct from HoneyApple. Lots of other cute designs too.


Hurray, the clocks have gone forward for Summer time – Whoop! Although I’m less than impressed about losing an hour of my life (or my sleep to be exact) I do welcome the promise of brighter warmer days! As such I thought I’d start practicing my Summer updo’s. Option number one is the GaGa-esque hair bow.

What do we think?




Mantyhose! Need I say more?

men's tights aka Mantyhose

As modeled on the street of Paris (said in my best French accent, dropping the “s”) this is the last women’s item of clothing I expect to be adopted by men. That said, any male fad that comes complete with its own play on words gets my vote. Maybe it’s time for us in the UK to embrace the idea of our fellers reaching for their guyliner and stretching on a pair of mantyhoes in the name of fashion! Or not.

So fellers, are you man enough?
