Alexa Chung for Madewell, Part 2!

So photos for the new Alexa Chung collection have come out this week an I absolutely adore all of it. She can do no wrong in my eyes anyway but I just love it all. I think my favorite pieces so far have to be the gold lace top, leopard print boots and the tartan print coat.

As Madewell don't ship internationally (maybe we should start a petition for them to do so) a trip to the Madwell store is definitely top of my list when I go to New York in a few weeks (earthquakes and hurricanes permitting)

There is also a cute little video to go along with the collection that you can find:

Right Here!

It was the day before....

Coat: Debenhams
Dress: Syd and Mallory
Shoes: Vintage (were a present)
Ring: H&M

After having a lovely few days off Im back to work tomorrow (boo) so have spent today just doing a last few jobs around the house and off to the gym before going to pick my lovely little lad up from nursery.

Weather is a bit rubbish here again so it was on with the tights again this morning. Are we ever going to have a summer here in England again? Though I must say I am quite looking forward to wearing all the lovely winter clothes coming into the shops now. I even have my eye on a couple of coats already!

p.s please ignore the tatty nail varnish. I need to do them again tonight!

Missoni for Target

So the full look book for the Missoni for Target is out. I'm not 100% sure to be totally honest. There are some really nice pieces but there are also some pieces that the WAGS are gonna go crazy for and I really hope the print doesn't become like what happened with the Burberry check a while ago (the chavs kidnapped it)

The print is definitely become more popular, I even seen copies of it in Primark!

My fav pieces of this look book I think have to be the homeware piece and the bike! I love the bike

Have a look for yourself here:

My first ever outfit post!

Yay! I've finally done it. My first ever outfit post. Please bear with my while I work the new camera out and get a bit more used to posing.

today was just a "nothing" day really, had a bit of a rubbish day yesterday so just had a wonder round town to take my mind off things.

The dress is Topshop, the blazer is an ebay find and the hat (because I couldn't be bothered to do my hair) is from H&M

I could get addicted to this...........

Love, Love, Love

How absolutely adorable are these Topshop shoes?

New in today and at £58 they are certainly on my massive want list. Also come in a dusky pink colour as well but I think this colour is perfect for an Autumn wardrobe.

New York, New York


Im off to New York for the very 1st time in 5 weeks! I cant begin to explain just how excited I am. I have already begun to think about that I am taking with me (well Ive been thinking about this for a while now) and have even made a little list including daytime and evening choices, which my boyfriend thinks is extremely sad!

Here are a few thing I woud like to add to the list before I go.

I seriously have nothing but New York on the brain at the moment!

Some weekend purchases


Had a lovely relaxing weekend and bough some lovely items during my usual Saturday stroll around town. Ring is from H&M, they have some really nice bits in at the moment, they also have a Coral colour one which I think I may got back and get.
The bag is from a little vintage shop called Syd and Mallory ( which I love and was a bargain at just £15. Will be perfect to take to New York as its not too big or bulky but fits quite alot in.
A cool New York guide book which has some real gems in and the I love your style book, only read the 1t couple of pages so far but seems quite cool. Ive been signed off from work sick so this will keep me occupied rather then having to sit in watching bloody Jeremy Kyle!

Bring the Savage Beauty Exhibition to England!

I don't know about you but I for one am dying to see this. I was hoping that they would have extended it for slightly longer so I could have seen it when I go to New York but it has sadly just finished.

A lovely lady called Melanie Rickey has started a petition on her blog to get it to travel so more can see this beautiful exhibition. The petition is on her blog

also on twitter as (hash tag)bringMCQueenexhibitionhome

Lets hope this works, it would look so lovely at V&A and would be an excuse for me to go back down to London.

Please sign the petition!
My new Tattoo!
Ive been wanting a new tattoo for a while now, one with quite a bit of colour and isn't always hidden by clothing. 
And thanks to the lovely Aidan at Thou Art in Sheffield I have exactly what I was after. I love it so much

Simply Wonderful

Tomorrow I shall be buy the new US copy of Vogue. The Kate Moss wedding sounds and looks absolutely perfect! A dream wedding, now if I just had a million pound budget and someone to marry I'd so be copying every last detail!

Soothing me while I've been poorly <3

Yeah so I have neglected my poor little blog yet again. But I know have a fancy new computer, a new house and now I want to pay some attention to my baby again. Just have to find time to fit it in between looking after my boy and working :( Why does work take up so much time!!

Anyway here are some blogs that have been keeping me entertained recently and I am addicted to!

Just a few amongst other that keep me entertained while at work wishing the hours away!
