When the girl goes to London...


After I've done some serious shopping I never look at my bank balance until I get paid at the end of each week. That might so a bit irresponsible, but, after what I spent the other day, it's for the best for a little while....

Forever 21 Necklaces: L £8.90 R £8.40

At the moment I've been wearing my statement necklaces to death, so in light with spring pastels coming back around I got these! Both surprisingly light, I think they'll pretty much go with anything, plain white t-shirt, grey dress etc. If I ever pick something up and can picture what I'd wear it with, I'll most likely be taking it to the till! Gold is the metal type I usually go for in earrings or necklaces, whereas I'll normally stick to silver for rings.

Forever 21 Skirt: £9

Typical British girl, once the sun shows a little sign of coming out she's already in a maxi skirt! I only discovered these last August, after an unflattering experience with a H&M maxi dress, I'd put the whole maxi trend in my 'never ever will suit me' category. But I was told by my sister that despite having ginger hair, coral can be ginger-friendly! I thought this would be a great skirt for hot days at college, where I can sling on a pair of sandals, top and denim jacket. Plus with matching nail polish, too cliche!


Sometimes I'll fall in love with everything at Topshop but other times I can't find anything. I almost always go straight to Orelia whenever I'm in a big Topshop, because their jewellery is just so beautiful and dainty, I pretty much love it all! Last year I got a pair of heart earrings which have lasted me really well, so I know their jewellery is something I'll always go for. These daisy earrings stood out for me and I'm sure I'll be getting a lot of wear out of them!



I've been a big Benefit fan for years now, from their kooky packaging to the long lasting and quality products, they can do n wrong in my eyes. Foundation is a difficult one for me, partly because I never want anything too thick, but I want my blemishes etc. covered up! Picky, I know! So you can imagine how relived I was when BB creams were discovered. I'm yet to get it a full test run, but I tried it out earlier and it's so lovely and lightweight I can tell I'm going to love it, I'll be sure to do a review soon!

Miss Selfridge Shorts: £22.50 (Student Discount RRP £25)

The day when my student card runs out will be a very sad one.... I was drawn to this high-waisted, pleated and pastel beauty instantly. Super flattering for boy-ish shapes like me and not too short (side note: trying to find a nice skort that isn't too short is almost impossible!) I can't wait to wear this when the weather is warmer which a white-shirt and statement necklace with sandals, but for the mean time it'll be tights and a blazer for me! 


Primark Jumpsuit: £10

I've been scanning various high street shops and their websites for the perfect jumpsuit for a few weeks now, but so far nothing. But Primark seem to have found a cheap and pretty alternative....I got this in a size 8, but the legs are HUGE! However, I think I'll be taking it in slightly on the legs as the top half fits fine and it shouldn't be too difficult to do. It's a very light weight, silk fabric that'll look great in the summer, although it'll have to be worn with a strapless bra as it's quite low cut at the back.

What's your favourite piece?
