Online shopping….

Im a huge fan of online shopping, you could say it was a slight addiction of mine one of these sites , a credit card a cuppa tea and a cinnamon swirl and im all set to shop !

Online shopping is a lot easier than walking round window shopping because you haven’t been paid yet , or when you do get paid the thing you wanted is sold out and your hunting for that last size 8 ! (that i never find …hello size 18 ? )

Apart from the great but usual ASOS, Topshop and Urban outfitters which are easy accesible to me  i have been on the hunt for other shops and one of my friends allways comes to me for “new” online shops, I’ve found so here we go :

Bitching and Junkfood

Not only does the online store  remake vintage garments into something edgy and exciting ( i have the bitchy cross shorts love them !) they have a selection of vintage pieces as well as a weird but wonderful accessories line of head dresses, bracelets and ear cuffs not for the faint hearted mind ! You can find the amazing pieces online at bitching and junk food or urbanoutfitters.com

 

So wanted these shorts !!! sold out : (

NastyGal

One of my favourite shops but it breaks my heart when i see the custom fees !! I do own a beautiful top from here though black knit and all  shredded at the back  ! Any how not only do i love the styling,  models, photographs and website layout there stock is to die for !

I dont know who the model is but she my favourite she has been on asos and catalogs anyone no her name ????

So much choice from Jeffery Campbell shoes , vintage beauties and new brands you can lose hours just browsing !!!

Free People

I havnt oreded anything from this online store yet based in Philadelphia
as i have never finished looking at everything , there is just so much to see and there jewellery and shoes are amazing ! If your after something laid-back and unique its Definitely worth a look !

UNIF

Dont no much about the brand apart from its based in California and thier video look book is making me want to move there asap  ! but it does feature on NastyGal and again more great images !

Well theres just a few online shops to drool at  and just to let you know im setting up my own  : )

Its only through ebay as im not that technical with the whole website designing ! ive got a bunch of old beauties and vintage pieces that need to be cleared out once ive photographed them ill post the link  !

Happy shopping !

Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey aged 24, a former jazz singer inspired by the likes of Elvis & Nina Simone not only has she got an amazing voice but im in love with her whole vintage 50s look  cant wait for an album to be released !

Heres Video Games x

 

Spell : Lula magazine x Topshop

Stumbled across this while searching to buy one of my favourite magazines Lula , and i loved it made in 2009, so yh its old but i love it, the music , the clothes and some brilliant shots.

What todays lazy day needs some inspiration  !

Spring / summer …..

Vintage vest cow Birmingham,   leopard print earrings topshop. Casio watch Ebay

Oh how the winter days are slowly fading away and i am one that cannot wait for the day to leave my house with out a jacket !! Heres a few of my high street and internet favourites that Ive been window shopping in .

Asos has some great spring/summer clothes and they always style the models well and student discount at 20% is even better.

Nasty Gal i adore this shop yet the shipping cripples me some great looks to get some inspiration from though.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Urban Outfitters a few summer pieces mainly casual that you can team with shorts instore is better that the website.

Aldo …. the shop that allways has a size 3 left  ! and i can see these shoes lasting me all summer and maybe in my wardrobe by the end of the week !

And last but never least Topshop  florals, silk and fringed im loving it all ! My empty purse is the reason Ive been avoiding the store in my town the last couple of weeks as the window shopping becomes depressing when you see beautiful bikinis and tiny dresses  hitting the shelves and im still wearing a cardigan and a leather jacket to go out the house  !

But ill bide my time till the student money rolls in and i can treat my self and hopefully the sun will keep on shining and warming up!

Gypsy Birthday

Ive let my hair down recently for my friends birthday themed on the brilliant Channel 4 documentry Big fat Gypsy wedding …. with my friend Emmas 23rd Big fat gypsy birthday .

First a meal at zizis with the lovely home made barbie (with big gypsy dress) Birthday cake made by Remini.

 

Me and the birthday girl Emma

Remini and me with our gypsy belts which you could hear ringing down the street,

Curling wands , glitter and the coin belts and bright dresses was the only thing gypsy really apart from abit of podium dancing .

The dress is from Zara. I love it

The night was great and the cake was definitely as sweet as it looks !

New year … New hair

It was time for a change and as my hairs growing but not as  fast as i would like it too.. so with some help from my lovely hair dressers who provided me with some highlights and a new fringe and my  amazing friend remini who is the best at hair extensions … made me look like a modern day rapunzel !

And i love it , ive been every colour under the sun and thought about going red like i did last year with the big craze so far with Rihanna and Cheryl Cole but 3 of my beautiful friends are now rocking it !

So needed something different !

My new dreamer camera Urban outfitters .Paris studs … my  lovely present from a friend and my red bandanna from a vintage store that i got  for a £1 !

Cant wait to get my crimpers and rollers in it ive also got a wand which all of my friends can use but me ??…when i attempted i burnt my neck !! so future note don’t put on full temperature and watch tv at the same time !
