OOTD; Charlotte Simone Popsicle

Charlotte Simone.. 
The most dreamy & amazing faux fur accessories around in my opinion. So if your boyfriend not only knows about the brand to begin with but actually manages to find the one you've had your eye on for months and buy you it, he's a good egg right? 

I've loved the Charlotte Simone popsicles for I'd say at least a year and a few months now but after spotting one in Liberty for almost half price I did the whole "oh I don't need it" and as soon as I got home had the instant 'I NEED it, WHY did I not buy it' regret. With Valentines day coming up my boyfriend was so so thoughtful and after a lot of favours and phone calls to Liberty somehow managed to get me the pink popsicle!! As well as a black cuff too! 
Two Charlotte Simone's and I get to have them early too which is kind of like a present in itself. 

I think it means such a lot when somebody goes out of their way to get you something really special, even something not expensive (unlike this little faux fur piece) but knowing somebody has gone out of their way for you is one of the nicest feelings in the whole world. I did almost cry when I found out how he had got me them but held back so he didn't think I was completely weird crying over a little bit of fluff ha ha! 

I'm probably never going to take my Charlotte Simone scarves off until at least summer so lets see just how many outfit posts they appear in..

On Sunday we headed to a little place that was full of tea rooms and pastel painted buildings, we were only there for an hour or so, but after bacon & maple syrup pancakes and the BEST black forest hot chocolate I've ever had, we were more than ready to come home. That was of course after a few outfit photographs and me look extremely awkward as people walked past me taking them (naturally)..

black polo neck jumper | primark | £5.00
faux leather dungarees | topshop sale | £35.00
bag | zara | £30.00
lace up shoes | river island | £30.00

If you have somebody willing to go out of their way for you be sure to hold on to them, even if it's just them picking up your favourite sweets after you having a bad day, people like that are hard to come buy whether it's a friend, a family member, a boyfriend etc. Make sure they know you're grateful & appreciate it. 
I'm pretty sure my boyfriend is fed up of me saying thank you already and it's only been a week or so ha ha!

Is there anything pretty expensive you have on your wishlist and are saving up for at the moment?

I hope you're all well and have a great weekend!

We went to Sketch!

You know it.. The pink room of dreams! 

Now if you have no idea what I'm on about then let me share with you Sketch London, I originally found out about this wonderful place through Instagram & once I had discovered all about it I just could not stop thinking about it! 

Sketch is a restaurant/art gallery in which each of the rooms are themed differently.. for example there is a rainforest room with stunning bird images and trees here, here and everywhere. 
The parlour which is full of quirky items, colourful walls (&some seriously great hot chocolate) and of course the gallery which is currently designed by David Shrigley.. and a whole heap of pink! 
If you'd like to see better images and find out more about Sketch, you can find their website here.

Now you'd think out of all these rooms nobody would be too fussed about the toilets right? 
Wrong! The toilets are literally unbelievable as strange as that may sound! Rather than explaining, I'll just pop a few images below.. 
Egg shaped cubicles, that play music to you as you wee.. What more could you possibly want after a spot of afternoon cake in a huge pink room! As we went at Christmas time there were tiny snow covered Christmas trees placed on top of each egg, but usually there are super cute ducks in nests placed above them. 
Seriously I am so so happy I got to visit this place, it was so amazing and I'd definitely go back (I'm not too sure my boyfriend would be so keen on that idea though, I think he has heard enough about how much I want to live at Sketch haha).

That said.. of course we had to take a toilet selfie.. classy I know!
My coat is from topshop &Ciaran's jumper was topman..

Have you personally visited Sketch? Or would like too? 
Let me know as it truly is one of my favourite places I've ever visited! 

I hope you're all well,

Today is the day..

Hello & a very (tiny bit late) Happy New Year! 
Now, I don't want to be one of these people that does the whole 'new year.. new me' situation but a whole new year is definitely something I see as a fresh start, whatever that may be within.. work, family, friends, hobbies etc. But that being said a fresh start can be any single day no matter if its the 1st, 3rd, even 29th day of the month! 

Of course, I want this to be the year were I plan (&actually manage) to blog every single week and stick to it but that's something that shall take time I guess, so for now I thought I'd start by sharing an outfit I wore over Christmas.. 
Think peter pan collars, leopard print & blue velvet! 

peter pan collar shirt | charity shop | £3.00
blue velvet skirt | topshop | £30.00
fluffy bag | asos | £30.00
leopard print lace up shoes | topshop | £70.00

I wore this outfit for a few drinks on Christmas Eve & really do love the hem of the skirt as it is almost a wave effect. This skirt was one of those items were you buy it and a few days later, ta daa there it is in the sale.. 
Annoying but I guess you've just got to think at least you have it in the right size & aren't desperately squeezing yourself into a size smaller in the changing rooms because you 'have to have it" or "it's only £15.00" .. we've all been there, trust me!

Did you manage to pick up any sale bargains? If so, I'd love to know! 
I hope you're all well & look out for my next post, I'm super excited to share where I went last week, it includes ALOT of pink!
