Recent New Things

A look at the recent new additions to my wardrobe...

Almost Christmas

Okay, so in roughly a month, it will be actual Christmas Day and I cannot wait! I've always been a big fan of Christmas. Every year, I'm amazed at how we can pack so much loveliness into one (relatively short) period of time. There's a real buzz in the atmosphere. There's an element of stress but it's all for a good reason, so we take it in our stride. There's planning and preparation (two of my favourite things). Family time, outings with your friends, endless fun and food (!!). All of a sudden, everywhere looks so much more beautiful. I love strolling through Birmingham, where all the big trees are up and the lights line the streets. I love wandering around the shops, listening to Christmas songs.

Mr Birds Emporium opens in Digbeth

Firstly, this post has been a long time coming (over two weeks, to be precise), due to circumstances beyond my control - losing my photos and then getting them all back etc. So, a huge apology. However, it's all still completely relevant (yay). So, read on, readers. Mr Birds Emporium awaits you.

But I look back at what I wore during my college days and literally die inside. So, this post is partly for all the students out there who are stuck for ideas. But it's partly for me to fantasize about how I wish I'd dressed at college.  Believe me, it is possible to be slightly lazy when those winter mornings arrive and you're getting ready in a rush (because you wanted the extra few minutes in bed. No? Just me?) and still look gorgeous.

Wednesday Wish List #3: August Pay Day

This week's Wednesday Wish List is all about Pay Day. I wouldn't usually make a big deal out of what I plan to buy around Pay Day but I've got a few items in mind that I thought I'd share with you all.

Wednesday Wish List #2: All About Studs&Spikes

This week's Wednesday Wish List is all about studs. They are everywhere at the moment and they're certainly a trend I'm investing in. Roll on Pay Day!

Lately, I've been thinking up some fab new features for you lovely readers to keep coming back to. So, welcome to Beauty Tuesday . I won't be writing this feature every week because I tend to focus more on fashion than beauty. But...I need to rave about the latest addition to my make up bag.
