just some pictures of my christmas!
we have allot of birthdays around christmas in our family, it was my grandpa's on christmas eve so we went for cake and gifts at his care home. 
i had been working all day so after his birthday celebrations went home briefly so i could wake up in my own bed for christmas morning!
after opening our presents at home went went to aunty jens (whose birthday it was) for lots of food and  allot more cake and more presents. 
in the evening i went to jays but we were so tired after a crazy few days work before christmas that after his family went home we just went to sleep!
on boxing day mama and papa picked me up and we all head to my aunty and uncles in norfolk, i always forget how beautiful (but windy!) it is there plus the cousin abuse i get (its out of love really)

hope everyone had a lovely christmas!

i'm giving you the night call.

london retro glasses review and giveaway
london retro glasses review and giveaway
shirt | ebay

i've been a glasses wearer for almost five years, i am pretty naughty and only wear them when i really need to like in lectures or when driving. the lovely jess at myoptique emailed me just i was musing that after two years it was probably time for a new prescription. 
i picked the bakerloo frames, the slight cat eye compliments my moon face nicely!
now i'm sure you know about london retro as they've been spotted on lots of beautiful bloggers, but just incase you want to know more....
"Available exclusively from MyOptique.com, the collection is titled Metropolitan, with each style named after an iconic London tube line or station. It provides a modern look backwards, combining retro shapes with the season’s key colour and fabrication trends. Mirroring a trend seen on the catwalks at Chanel, Miu Miu and Dior, the collection features thinner acetates than previ-ously. Matt finishes reflect the growing influence of texture, while subtle colourways like muted pinks are introduced for the first time."

now as i love you and like to give you treats i have a giveaway for you! myoptique want to give you a pair of london retro glasses too, you can have sunglasses if you're not part of the four eyes club.
 just enter via the rafflecopter widget below!

fur stole | dorothy perkins 

hello!
i decided that i needed a smart winter coat and when taking a jumper back at primark (note; i do not suit fluffy jumpers, i just look silly in them) i spotted this bad boy that ticked all my boxes.
navy and gold just look SO good together! 
teamed with my trust stole that comes out every winter, however it is getting a little worn these days.
in love with fashion kindly sent me this beautiful berry coloured dress, perfect for the autumnal colours that are still lurking about. 
i am so so excited to go home for christmas on friday, its been a full on term (which hasn't finished, one more hand in)

cardi and bag | primark
skirt and shoes | new look 

look at me trying to be all hip and cool (hahaa naaaaat) but iyaaa on trend item!
i pretty much stalked this skirt on the new look website and then decided if it was in the shop i could have it (anyone have things like that, you know just to justify it...)
after seeing the beautiful jazmine and mel rocking leather skirts in a casual way i thought i want to get in on this malarkey!

thing will be a bit quiet on the blogging front up to christmas (not that they haven't anyway, sorry chums) just that third year is just full on. 
i will be back when i can, promise!

trench | primark
shirt | ebay
jeans | topshop
bag | cambridge satchel company
loafers | clarks

you can pretty much rely on me to make silly faces when portraits are involved, its only natural i belong behind the camera really!
its still lovely and autumny (but cold) in so'ton and the parks look beautiful, especially when the sun shines but it does make me miss the fields.
this shirt finally arrived yesterday after waiting a month for it, my own fault as it was from ebay/china, but it was worth the wait as i am in lurrrvveeee. admittedly it is a but static so it sticks to me a bit, other than that it is perfect!
also look who actually did their hair today, that will not be a regular thing my friends (i am way too lazy with my hair)
today i went for a mooch round town with jen and met jade for a starbucks, vanilla hot chocolates are new fave! jays coming down for the weekend so i'm sure you'll see any of our adventures via instagram.

hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

trench coat | primark
dress | pull and bear

hat and scarf | ebay
ring | topshop

sorry long time no speak, well it feels like a long time!
i've been busy mainly going to the library but its also been full of halloween, surprise parties, journeys back to the fields, trips to the breakfast club, wandering round covent garden, shopping at spitalfields market, family dinners, house come dine with me and then more library trips (third year fun eh)

i've been pretty much living in this trench and chelsea boot combo, and then came to the realisation that i do actually suit hats. i feel more comfortable wear hats in london rather than so'ton, i do think people really 'do' hats down saaaathhhhh (well its not as common, livs observation of the week..) although some are partial to a bobble, but you know what i mean.
plus its that time of the year that i can wear my tartan scarf pretty much everyday and its normal...it just goes with everything okay!

bag : cambridge satchel company

s'cuse the suitcases under my eyes, i have a new street light right outside my bedroom which is about twenty times brighter than the one before (that kept me awake anyway) mixed with very loud road drilling at eight twenty this morning makes me sleepy one!
i realised the other day i only own two short skirts, two! so this little french horn/foxy number made its way swiftly into my wardrobe after spying it in the UO sale.
it also got to the time where it was kind essential to own a flat pair of brown chelsea boots, flat because one; i walk everywhere and I'm not lady like to wear heels everyday and two brown goes with everything...plus...i do like a chelsea boot

we managed to survive the storm unscathed, our roof tiles rattled a little, but nothing dramatic.
hope everyone stayed safe!

jacket and loafers: ebay
dress : new look

i wasn't so sure of this dress when i got it, but now i loves it.
i wore it out the other night and i though i would crack it out to brighten up a foggy wednesday.

its fair to say we're well into the autumnal season now and dare i say it i'm getting excited for christmas (only because we were talking about it at the weekend...) 
i love getting cosy in my room with candles and a cuppa (cool kid i know) or walking on foggy mornings tucked up in a big coat!
plus autumn means jumpers, we all know my bad habit for jumpers...

love livvy

this babe took the pictures today because she is a lovely chum

with getting paid and my student loan i got a bit carried away...the converse were an investment as i have worn them everyday since i got them (which is why they look a bit scuffed)
had a matalan voucher to spend as  they were lovely and included a twenty pound voucher in our goody bags from the event!
to be fair i can't walk very well in the heels but they look puuurrddyyy, i wore them with the printed shift dress the other night and it was a very enjoyable combination.

jay came down for the weekend and we ate allot...a turtle bay (and a few too many cocktails) TWO tootis (which is a gelato bar) i take no responsibility for this..
and i made a pie aannddd it was a success! it even had pie written on it in the left over pastry!

bloggers stupid pose : a norm 

say hello to my new favourite dress! i wore this for the first time the other day and i got so many compliments on it, everyone was shocked that it was from primark!
it is a bit tricky to get in and out of and a tad tight on the should/boob area (my housemates now like to make fat shoulder jokes)
however it makes up for this by being nice to twirl in, everyone got a show of this!
not sure why my hair looks so blonde all over in these photos, i can guarantee its not, however it is a fluffy as it looks..
my bag is a right gem, i can pretty much fit a small child in there (i think, i haven't actually tried) so far i have fitted; my mac, camera, all chargers, a pair of boots, hair dryer, make up bag, purse, umbrella, phone and keys WITH ROOM. i have designated it to be my library books bag. 
its got SO cold in hampton of the south, the wind here is vicious, this means if i make any effort with my hair it is wasted as soon as it leave the house, i pretend i look like like a l'orel advert but really i look like i have an impressively hairy face...good look i know!

forever keeping it classy in the ally behind my house, i kept trying to stand infront of the fallen over wheelie bin..

not much to report on apart from i'm busy researching my diss subject, so my arms have been getting a work out carrying all the chunky photography books home, but its so nice to actually be looking and writing about photographs/photography and getting excited about shooting again, it feels like so long.
