new things.

Back to the 9-5 grind of uni. Okkk so it's more like I have to deal with a maximum eight hours a week. It's a grind nontheless.

Home was nice. Newcastle shops are sooo good. It doesn't take much to beat York though, wheyy.

Here are four items I bought whilst on my brief encounter with Geordie turf again. Sorrrry for the same shirt again. It's just coincidence and not that I'm a scruff. Promise. I have wanted a pair of these wedged desert boots ever since I can remember, I have um'd and ar'd for over a year but at a snip of 20£ in the Dorothy Perkin's sale, I couldn't resist. It was meant to be, clearly.

That shirt: Camden, Jumper: New Look, Skinny Trousers: TOPSHOP, Necklace: Primarni, Boots:Dorothy Perkins
I'm thinking about London Fashion Weekend, is anyone going?

The muchly anticipated deadline is looming. Judgement day or what. I have everything crossed. One last thank you to those who have voted. I can't extend my gratitude enough. One final plea. Thank you thank you thank you.

pretty pictures.

Boring day, boring post.

I have spent the day shopping in Newcastle. I'll show what I treated myself to at a later date. I am bored of the high-street or it may be shopping in general. It still don't stop me.

I am running low on inspo these days. I have a few ideas in the pipe line but am being too lazy to sit down and properly write them out.

Instead, here are some photographs of an artsy / inspirational / vintage nature.

Again, a huge thank you to all of you who have voted for me to win a sixth month, paid internship at ELLE magazine. Dream come true? Too right. Keep on spreading the world to everyone in your life. It takes literally two seconds to cast your vote HERE. I have managed to maintain fifth position, let's see what we can do. Two little days left. I am becoming quite anxious.

Ooh and also any ideas for a giveaway? Lemme know in the comments.

one love.

This blog was never intended as a sell-out, high end fashion wannabe but with the Paris couture shows in full swing, I couldn't resist re-posting these images from the season's Chanel offerings.
All Images

Pastel, frilled and feathered dresses in soft tones of lilacs, pinks and blues, whispered innocence but waist-less silhouettes percolated the Grecian allure.
Glittering evening versions fell to the floor, adorned in sequins, crystals and delicate embroidery detailing.

Coveted Chanel pieces were evident in the form of the traditional bouclé wool suits that played out at the start over narrow trousers which were also intricately sequinned and crystalised.

Mr Lagerfield has hit the nail bang on the head with this collection, perfectly channeling S/S '11 through pretty, sheer dresses in monochromes and floor-skimming, pastel gowns.

Three words: pure, girlish, elegance.

Karl Lagerfield... marry me? Or design me a dress as a freebie at least.

p.s. thank you all so much for voting for me to win a sixth month paid internship at ELLE magazine. If you haven't already, it's not too late. If you like what you have seen on are you dressing up or dressing down? or just want to show your support then 'PICK ME' to win here.

dead to the world.

I had planned to do this on Friday but my camera was outta juice. It was my Little Kirst's twenty first on Thursday night so we standardly put on quite a show. I managed to man up the morning after and throw this together. I am so bored of my wardrobe. I am compiling a wish list as we speak. Someone gimme some dollar dollar cash?
Cardi: Mummy's, Jeans and Pearls: TOPSHOP, Shirt and Bag: Vinatge, Loafers: M&S, Lace Socks: New Look

I have finally had my hair cut, so I am no longer sporting the wannabe ballerina 'do. Although I will miss it.

Thank you again for voting for me in the ELLE intern competition. I am still fifth which in itself I think is a decent achievement. Not to big myself up or anything. One week today and I promise you will hear no word of it. I just really want it and need your support. CHYAZ.

I take back what I said yesterday about the high-street and the flatform. Today on my lunch break, I accidentally ended up in TOPSHOP's shoe lounge (absolute devil, its literally the shop next to my work). Moral of the story; they've jumped on the badwagon. Here they are. I like them. I want them.

Maybe just maybe the flatform trend will actually oust the wedge / platform this year.
