Turning tables.

(thankyou jazz for taking these pictures sweetie!)

Stripe knit jumper, forever21 - £11.99
Topshop leather leggings, gift
Wedges, gift
Fur russian style hat, charity shop - £3
Promise ring, gift off boyfriend

The jumper is so lovely, it was from my Birmingham trip in forever21 and it is just great for winter as its super comfy. The topshop leather leggings were a gift from my sister - she found them in a size 6 at a house swap party! I've been after some for AGES and couldn't bring myself to pay the £15+ price they're going for on ebay, and she didn't even know I was after a pair! My family know me wayyyyy too well!

I popped down to London and attended the Next S/S press day last week. It was nice to go down - I haven't been in a while and although I got quite lost and abit wet from the rain, it was ridiculously lovely catching up with and meeting bloggers! I'm so excited about Spring and summer if I'm honest - A/w fashion isn't my stringest point and next have such lovely clothes!

I'm hoping to record a little haul video or something over the next week or so - I've already tried once and hated my voice/mannerisms/the way I looked that I had to delete! I think I'm just going to practice till I'm happy haha.
Not quite finished sorting the entries for the contest (so sorry!) but I'm working so much recently - it's christmas time so where I work is now open until 10pm :| which means getting home at like 11:30pm on the bus as I do not drive! So I'm going to be quite tired etc but I'm really really going to try! I bought some AMAZING shoes so will need to show you them asap!
p.s. Happy Halloween!

See these platforms? THEY BROKE. I died. The heel just came off. And you know what? I deserve it, cause i always buy cheap stuff off ebay and this is what happens! RIP.

Topshop tartan bralet, ebay - £12
Black jersey maxi skirt, ebay - £10
Double snake bite ring, ebay - £13
Heels, ebay - £20

The bralet corsetty top always gets me compliments and I love it, and the ring is just the most amazing ring I've ever seen in my entire life!

On thursday I attended the 'meadowhall bloggers lunch'. Now, I'm actually from sheffield, so being invited to an event which takes place in Sheffield is bizarre - I was only travelling 45 mins rather than the 2+ hours it takes to London for the majority of events, so it was really lovely. They're doing a big campaign over October for their 'fashion month', and the day was alot of fun. We got to have a look around lots of stores new A/W stuff aswell as speaking to a woman from 'Evans' about body shape. When I enquired someone said 'inverted triangle', whilst another said 'hourglass'. I think I'm abit of both really!

I also got to meet some lovely ladies! I got to finally meet Hannah and Jen, who I've spoken to many times over twitter and regularly read their blogs - so was so strange to finally meet them. And jens first words were 'youre so tiny!'. Guess my photos really do make me look alot taller than I actually am haha. And I also met Claire and Lauren who were absolutely lovely! I love meeting other bloggers, they're always so down to earth and having a good natter about blogging is so refreshing - no one I know is really aware of this kind of stuff so it's nice to have people with the same interests!

We were kindly given a free complimentary meal at a new restaurant 'giraffe', which was lovely! My burrito (picture) was abit much so I couldn't finish it all, but it was such a nice place. Really healthy and definitely had a nice vibrant environment.

Will announce the faux arty ring winner on the next post - taken longer than expected as I've just been working so much recently. Went to Birmingham bullring this weekend with the boyf, and have a little haul so watch out for that. Hope you've all had a lovely weekend!
