February Top Buys… My Pick Of Fashion This Month.

Hey guys, so we’ve reached the second month of the year and I don’t know about you but when the weather is rubbish outside, I just love sitting in and drinking tea with a blanket, doing some some online shopping. I think it’s a serious addiction. Don’t you get a little buzz when the delivery man comes? And a little disappointment when nothing arrives!

I’ve put together a few of the bits and bobs I’m loving at the moment within fashion – I’ll even throw in some discount codes if I can track them and the links for you to purchase! I’ll put together a beauty one too soon!

1) This beige off-shoulder knit jumper – I already have a cream one and a black one but beige is next on my list… I love all things Bardot and off the shoulder at the moment! (At the time of writing – use code wrapup for a massive 40% off).

2) This White Bardot bodysuit another bargain when adding in the 40% discount code wrapup – really cute with black high waisted jeans and a cute little jacket.

3) This Ivory chunky-knit jumper dress would look unreal with some thigh high boots! Again code wrapup gives you 40% off! (I promise my whole list isn’t just Missguided).

4) These cream thigh highs boots – they’re neoprene so you get them nice and tight on the legs! Nothing worse than unintentionally baggy thigh highs. You won’t believe the price either – just £21 with the code wrapup. Crazy!

5) This Red silky dress – flattering on so many body types, in ‘in colour’ and an expensive looking fabric. What’s not to love? Perfect for valentines may I add! I love it in allll colours!

6) This Tassel trim dress I am just in love with it! I wish I had somewhere to wear it because it was instant love.

7) This Embroidered bodycon dress and matching tassel trim jacket oh my gooooodness I love it. I think BOTH is necessary as they just look unreal together for a special occasion or fancy night out. Yes yes yes.

I’m going to keep up with these posts as I see things I love. Beauty and fashion related! Enjoy.

Missguided 50% off Madness

It’s every fashionistas dream to receive a magic code through your email inbox that entitles you to a massive 50% off online shopping….. Dreamy. (It’s funny how we don’t know we need new clothes until there’s a bargain?)  So what happens when these dreams are crushed by being booted off the website every two seconds due to the hugeeee amount of traffic? 

I’m one of (what I can only assume) THOUSANDS of girls that stormed Missguided for some 50% off bargains yesterday upon receiving their email with code NOJOKE. The only problem is, it soon started to become more than a joke. For starters, there was a queue just to get on the website, then when you were on, each click lead to you being booted off again. If that’s not annoying enough, the ‘add to basket’ function broke also, meaning that even if you did manage to stay on the site for more than 2 minutes, it was near impossible to get anything in your basket. 

I started at around 9.30am and with constant refreshes and persistence of steel, I managed to get 6 items in my basket (ALMOST everything I wanted) and admitted defeat to go to the checkout. Then I realised that checking out would be the worst part. Long story short, I got booted off another several thousand times and with ruthless persistence and copious amounts of refreshing the page, my order was complete. 

Upon searching Missguided on Twitter, it seemed I was pretty much one of the only ones to achieve this, give or take like 2 others (Not smug, promise). Missguided had put out a few tweets stating their website was down and they’d be back up and running in no time. 

So the question is, why did Missguided put this mega offer on, if they were never going to be able to cope with the demand? Their website was down pretty much within minutes of sending the email out. So, was this a clever PR stunt or simply an oversight from their tech team? Either way, it certainly got them some massive attention and I doubt their competitors made many sales yesterday when everyone knew the bargains waiting for them on Missguided. However, how many sales did they miss out on in those hours where no one could get on? How many people gave up and admitted defeat? 

I’d have loved to have seen the chaos in the offices that day. That being said, I recieved my next day delivery as promised which I was not expecting! And everything is perfect. Winnerrrrrr. As annoying as the issue was, I still love you Missguided. 

Anyway, here’s what I picked up… I wanted some casual day time clothes so I’m happy with these! 

Were you affected by the Missguided drama? Did you manage to fulfil your order? Let me know in the comments!

Goodbye, July. My July Top Picks. 

Perhaps this post is a couple of days late, but I thought I’d do a little post detailing some of the things I’ve loved this July. As I’ve celebrated my 21st birthday, I’ve had lots of nice treats to try out! Here’s my top picks. 

1) Australasia – Spinningfields. 


On my 21st, after my graduation ceremony (busy day!) we headed to Australasia in Spinningfields, Manchester. I’ve been before to this Asian Fusion restaurant and it never fails to impress me with the food, drinks and decor. It feels super exclusive heading downstairs and the selection of sushi, delicious dishes and cocktails are exceptional. Make sure you try the chocolate dome! 

2) All things Elemis. 


I’ve been loving the Papaya Enzyme Peel, Exotic Moisture Mask and Skin Bliss Capsules that I picked up on my spa weekend. I suffer from dry skin so these are all really hydrating and are keeping my skin glowing. 

3) Nutribullet. 


I’ve mentioned previously that I’ve used this every single day since I got it! I’ve been enjoying making new recipes up with different fruits and leafy greens – I would totally recommend this for any health-lovers like me! 

4) WheyHey Protein Ice Cream. 


On the rare sunny days in England, it’s nice to have grab a frozen treat and WheyHey offer an amaaaaazing guilt free one. One 150ml tub contains 20g protein and tastes delicious! I think it has an almost sticky/chewy consistency and comes in a range of flavours. You can pick some up in Holland and Barrat or online Here.

5) Fudge Make-A-Mends Shampoo and Conditioner. 


I picked these up from the wholesalers and I’m loving how silky they’re keeping my hair. I always like to spend a little more on good hair products, with having bleach on my locks. You can snap some up online Here.

6) All things Missguided. 


The affordable fashion site has so much to offer right now that I can’t choose what to buy, I want it all! I picked up a few items already and I know for sure I’ll be making an order this August. Take a look for yourself Here.

7) Muji Aroma Diffuser. 


This is one of the many gorgeous gifts I received from my lovely boyfriend, after he’s noticed me lusting after them in selfridges for ages. I adore things like this and always have scented candles and oil burners on so this is perfect for me as it vapour uses water and essential oils and produces a scented must that fills the house. My favourite oil so far is the Mandarin one. You can purchase online Here or visit selfridges. 

These are just a few of the things I’ve loved this month and I’ll be sure to post next months up on time!

Missguided delivery! 

I’m quite late to post tonight since I’ve been really busy studying for my final exams. Two weeks tomorrow and I will be freeeeee! I can then concentrate on my modelling and get myself prepared for Miss Scuba UK.

Tonight I went out with my family for my nephews 8th birthday so I wanted something really casual but still quite pretty. Thankfully my Missguided order arrived today so I stuck on a new top and my trusty Zara jeans with a pair of pointed courts. 



Skinny Jeans: Zara   

Top: Missguided. 

I have wanted a top like this for ages so jumped at the chance when I saw this on Missguided with 25% student discount! I fell in love with the wrap detail and the long draping back.     

I love anything in this sort of nude/pinky shade. The long sleeves are great for this time of year when it’s too warm to wear a coat, and too cold not to.  

I finished the look with a delicate opal pendent, gold Michael Kors watch, natural makeup and bouncy curls. 

I’m so looking forward to finishing my degree now, I’m definitely going to reward myself with some retail therapy. Can anyone recommend some sweet online boutiques? 

One more day until the weekend…..
