It’s almost the end of February (um like tomorrow) and I’ve definitely caught the Spring bug, meaning I love everything pastel and fun. Here are a few items I would love to own (but unfortunately I won’t be buying anything as I need to save up some cash for the summer, thus I have a shopping ban, and luckily or unfortunately some of these items are sold out anyways).
This French Connection drop waist dress is so pretty (unfortunately it’s one of the items that is sold out), I love the pale yellow color (hello lemon lover) and the relaxed fit seems like it would be perfect for the warmer weather. I also quite like the sleeves as I don’t have too many dresses with sleeves.
I’m totally in the mood for something kitsch and cute, so this Asos coin purse is almost perfect. I just wish it wasn’t a coin purse and was a clutch bag (e.g. bigger) because I adore it.

Along with every other blogger I am seriously anticipating the arrival of Spring (we’ve actually had quite a mild winter so it’s not so bad). I cannot wait to stop wearing boots! Pretty heels here I come! The shoes above are my Vivienne Westwood for Melissa Skyscraper court heels, which I’ve worn once to a wedding (not the best choice as there was surprisingly a LOT of walking and standing involved and my feet were killing me…) and have yet to re-wear. I’m thinking a cinema date would be perfect, lots of sitting down and all.

Last week M and I went to see the Kingsman film and I thought it was brilliant. I LOVED it! Colin Firth was amazing (seeing Mr. Darcy kicking ass was just perfect, really.) Anyways, for the occasion I decided to dress smart, as a kingsman would.

I apologize in advance for this being a Lush post but it has been a crazy week and the only thing keeping me sane (besides my rabbit) is the luxury of taking a lush bath every day.
Because I’ve tried out a couple more products, I thought I’d share my thoughts on how those products were. Let’s start with my new absolute FAVORITE PRODUCT EVER!! Seriously, it’s THAT good. The item in question is the Lush bubble bar Holly Golightly:
The top photo, with me in the bath and all those bubbles? Yup, thanks to Holly Golightly. This is such a great product. The smell is amazing and super festive, I love the name, it turns your bath into a lovely green color and the amount of bubbles is just insane!! I used a fourth of the bubble bar each time and I’ve already used each piece. I’m kind of sad it’s not a permanent item because I cannot wait to repurchase (I have two more in my stash but I never want to run out, so I’ll have to use them strategically.)

I’m not generally into fashion rules or even gender rules, when it comes to clothing I believe everyone should wear whatever the fuck they want to. Take the outfit above, totally suitable for Valentine’s day right? Well, I wore it a week before Valentine’s 😊 and it wasn’t a Wednesday either!

As Spring draws near (I may be in denial but please don’t tell me Spring isn’t on its way, I’m so over winter already!) I have been loving everything stripped lately. And a bit of gingham, and some pastel colors too. But back to the stripes, shall we? The dress that started my stripped obsession was this little Pop Boutique number:
I love that it has a little turtle neck as I feel that really offsets the shortness of the dress. The stripes are rather thin and are close together and the high neck has the stripes in a different direction. You may remember when I wore the dress here. (I cannot wait to wear it again but this time without a winter coat!) My stripe quest didn’t end with this dress though, as I managed to buy two more.

I recently purchased this super cute make-up set from Anna Sui (I had been Asos-stalking it for over a month until I decided to take the plunge.)
The box contains another box, this one resembles a box of chocolates.

I have a few outfit posts that I haven’t posted yet. I’ll start with one of my favorites – a mostly all-black outfit with some monochrome details. The star of the show was this cute Liquorish Panda bag.
It’s roomy enough (most of my novelty and clutch bags are teeny tiny) but of course, like every bag ever, it could be bigger. I love that it’s a panda, because pandas are awesome. I also love that the bag is black and white because that means it will go with a lot of outfits, yay! As for this outfit, well, I wore most of my winter favorites: super old Zara hat, Next gloves, black pashmina, warmest Zara Woman coat. As for the shoes I wore my Hunter Chatel moonboots.

I wish we could just skip the rest of winter and move along to Spring 😒 because though I don’t mind cold weather at the mountains, I HATE winter in the city. I’m a winter sufferer too: my sleeping patterns are all over the place, I’m constantly too cold/too hot, and my skin gets super dry.
Especially my lips! I have to use lip balms literally all the time. Although I love lipstick I don’t tend to use any during winter. But here are some products that I use instead:

Remember that fuzzy Topshop winter coat I bought almost a month ago? Well I wore it straight away after I bought it (and have actually only worn it once, it is a bit hard to wear. I did feel like I was sort of impersonating a white bear but otherwise it’s fine.)
Anyways, the coat is question is this Topshop Faux Fur Teddy PeaCoat. Now you do want to see how I styled it? 🙂
