When I get to Warwick Avenue...

Hey guys,

I am currently on my way to Warwick University (ok it's not Warwick Avenue but thanks Duffy!) and I have the entire back row of the coach to myself! And as I am alone I thought I'd tell you about what I wear when I travel.

Firstly, I love to wear espadrilles and today is no exception, they are so lovely and light while also covering all of my feet so they are protected as well, especially if you are dragging a suitcase as they can hurt! These are my blue ones from Primark and they are fab!

I also took the rather bold decision to wear shorts (shocked face as its unusual for me). They are in the boyfriend style and are so comfy and from New Look and I paired them with a bright pink Gilly Hicks tee! 

When going on holiday I take my bright pink suitcase and I have it with me now although it looks like it has been through a small war thanks to the baggage handlers and my loving cat so today I looked like a holiday version of A Study in Pink (hi Sherlock fans!).

Update: I am now in bed at Warwick in my room which is lovely, waking up at 7 will be hard but oh well! I have enjoyed meeting everyone and hi if you are reading this at the conference please message me and say hi! 

So I'm gonna sign off and get some sleep at long last, 

Luv you all,

Fashion in Film - Confessions of a Shopaholic...

Hey guys,

Firstly a big thank you to all you guys for reading this blog when I post, it means a lot to me and if you want me to write about anything in particular let me know anyway you like, also if you would like to follow me in another way that I currently don't offer, just ask!

So back to this post, I have this and three more fashion in film posts on there way and today's is about the best-selling book turned film, Confessions of a Shopaholic. Although the film is an adaptation of the book, it is actually a really funny, girly film and with the mandatory man candy of Luke, played by the handsome Hugh Dancy, thrown in for good measure. My favourite quote from the film is when Becky, played by Isla Fisher, takes Luke shopping thinking he knows nothing and then is surprised to find that he "speaks Prada" despite an apparent dreadful taste in clothes.

Back to the clothes, well of course Becky herself has many, including some highlights that I will show in the images below, but then of course comes the green scarf. The green scarf is important because it ties Becky to Luke and Becky to giving up her shopping addiction! In actual fact the scarf is very on trend with the jewel green colour that would go with everything!

So here it is to the shopaholics out there,

Speak soon guys,

Luv u all,

Fashion Update!!

Hey guys,

So lots of things have been going on in the fashion world it is so hard to keep up! But I have picked my top 5 from all the stories:

First off things have been going down at Burberry, hot things. New couple on the block Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge are the brands face for Autumn/Winter 2013 and the shoot was amazing. And super steamy! The photographer was definitely third wheeled as the loved up pair did their thing.

Secondly, it seems that all good things appear from Dior at the moment. I finally got myself a new mascara from the Diorshow range as it is simply the best! (queue the cheesy music) While also I found that they have re-branded my favourite perfume Miss Dior Cherie into simply Miss Dior and I was scared that I wouldn't like the new scent however I am pleased to inform the blogosphere that I loved it just as much as the old one! (It is not that much different tbh, slightly fresher but still fab!) 

Thirdly, my new fashion love: my legs! After loosing a bit of weight in the new year I realised just how fab my legs are and subsequently have gone a bit, no a lot summery. Today's purchases are two pairs of shorts and a fab skirt sure to feature in some outfits soon, ahh I love the sun! 

Fourthly, sing along now "And it was all yellow!" As with summer comes a colour of the season and this time round it seems that yellow is it. I own three yellow dresses from my not so long ago dress buying addiction and I guess I now have the weather to wear them! Again yay for summer! 

Finally, the men behind the label Dolce and Gabbana were sentenced to time in prison in Italy last month for tax evasion! I was shocked to say the least! This story is one of a string recently, where companies or individuals seek to avoid paying tax. Now I know nobody likes to pay it and it seems to not be the easiest thing to do despite living in a modern age, but in times of global recessions etc. I think that evading tax is shady behaviour and I hope that now it's a public interested issue, less of it will happen in the future.

So that's today's fashion update, it took a long time to come as I have just been made a captain of my college and the responsibilities piled up quickly as I had to help plan end of year social events, sorry guys, will be back on form asap as college finishes this week! 

Hope you're all enjoying the weather!
