OOTD / 29 December 2011
Dress: ASOS *** Bag: River Island *** Necklace: ASOS *** Rings: Primark/Topshop *** Shoes: Topshop

I know this outfit (and most of my winter ones) looks very summery but to be honest I am "over" Winter and already looking forward to summer. Plus its easy to wear these kind of outfits on days like today when most of it was spend inside heated buildings!
The necklace from todays post was purchased from ASOS months ago, but I forget if its actually ASOS brand or River Island. Eitherways, I love it! I forgot all about it until I was packing up the rest of my things last week and found it inside a little box.
I finally moved house last week. I still have access to my old one for another week, so I will probably use it for my OOTD's for now as my new bedroom has not been painted and has a not-so-pretty brown wool carpet. Aside from brown not being my favourite color or blending in with my color scheme, i'm really not a big fan of carpet. I am bringing my white floor from my old bedroom but only the very middle of it is re-useable (sadly!) Hopefully it won't take me too long to save up to purchase more of it!

What did you girls think of the sales this year? I was a bit disappointed with them, but also glad because I couldn't afford to buy much. I wasn't too impressed when I ventured into New Look and spotted a blouse I purchased for €35 last month marked down to €4....eep!

All I want for Christmas is....

christmas wishlist
Miss Selfridge Nautical Playsuit Juicy Couture Eau de Parfum ASOS Filigree Pearl Capped Necklace ASOS Patent T-Bar Flats Miss Selfridge Cream Pearl Collar ASOS Mint Knot Headband ASOS Pearl Set Triple Finger Ring Tweezerman Pink Slant Tweezers


Not too fond of how mismatched the green/red theme is with all of the softer colors but I wanted to make the wishlist look a bit "Christmas-y".
I fell in love with the playsuit after spotting it in Miss Selfridge recently. The Juicy Couture perfume is my "signature" scent (well, along with Armani Code), my bottle is currently empty so I am hoping to get a new bottle sometime soon. The tweezerman tweezers is something I already own however mine has been dropped over a dozen times and used plenty so its time to get a new one! Everything else is just pretty things that have caught my eye recently.

What are all of you lovely girls hoping for this Christmas? Aside from love, health, happiness and plenty of yummy food of course!

Dress: Awear *** Cardigan: Dunnes *** Shoes: Primark (Limited Edition) *** Bracelet/Necklace: Primark

The title of this post was inspired by the Nina l'Elixir by Nina Ricci commercial which I am currently obsessed with. Its so dreamy and stars the beautiful Florrie Arnold (who is also singing the cover of the Sunday Girl) The bedroom reminds me of my own, although a lot bigger, fancier and a much better view!
I bought this dress in Awear during the summer and hadn't worn it as I was planning to return it eventually, but decided to wear it today instead as i'm sure six months is a little too late to return things! Everything else was also purchased during or at the end of summer. I haven't been doing too much shopping recently which i'm proud of but I am looking forward to the January sales! I had my eye on these River Island booties and was hoping they would end up in the sale (I really can't justify spending £100 on shoes just before Xmas) but it seems like they've sold out everywhere already...darn!

Hope everyone is enjoying December and not too stressed out over the holidays!

Etsy pretties: Christmas edition!

December 3, 2011

I just had to do a Christmas themed "Etsy pretties" post! I have been wanting to do one of these for a few weeks but I decided to wait until December began. I have quite a few Christmas themed items saved to my favourites and many are pastel shades of pink and blue, but as pretty as they are...I think Christmas just isn't the same without the green-red-white theme!


this cake bunting


this set of cones (perfect for handing out holiday treats!)


this miniature envelope


this box of one dozen yummy tree cookies


this set of gift bags


this star shaped Santa pillow


this set of six letterpress cards


this "santas beard" Christmas soap


this sweet little winter cottage decoration


this set of vintage inspired gift tags
