Outfit post: Monocrome

Monochrome to match the weather!

Blouse - Forever 21
Necklace & Bangle - Primark
Jeggings and ballet flats - Dorothy Perkins
Nail polish - Rimmel

First things first, I am in love with these jeggings. I am seriously late to the jeggings party and I apologise profusely. Spotted in Dorothy Perkins, I was in need of an alternative to jeans and spotted these lovelies on the sale rail. Reduced to £15 from £30. Score! 

Moving is expensive so Primark has been my go to for cheap fashion jewellery. I love this statement necklace and this bangle is actually from a three pack which is ideal for matching with different outfits. Also, one great thing about living in London is that I finally have access to Forever 21. Woop! It is actually a crime that there isn't one in Manchester yet.  

It's quite funny I've been wearing so much black recently as I'm usually a rainbow of colours. I'm putting it down to me not being so happy with my size. But hey ho, I'm a slimming world member now and have lost half a stone so far so I'm well on the way to being a healthy size again :)

Have you been sticking to darker colours recently or are you a rainbow despite the weather?

GBK & Harrods

It was a mini family reunion this weekend and I got to visit Westfield - Stratford and Harrods for the first time. I can't believe how much bigger the Stratford Westfield is than the White City one. Will have to return when I actually have some money, ha ha. 

For lunch we went to the Gourmet Burger Kitchen, which was another first for me. A couple of the others weren't so impressed with their meals but I really loved mine. Didn't get a chance to take a picture of the food but I went with the Persian Lamb burger with no bun (Naked!) and green salad. Surprisingly filling and I didn't have to feel guilty. Score :) 




Then my cousins needed to nip to Harrods so I got my first look inside. Omg (yes it deserves a omg), that place is like a maze! I think I would definitely get lost in there. But how awesome is the Egyptian Stairway? I had to be a tourist and get out my camera.




Definitely going to go on more outings in London when pay day rolls around. 

Whats your favourite place in London or where would you want to visit?

New goodies

Just before I got really skint I paid a little visit to Primark and my local charity shop. Pretties!


How gorgeous is this dress? I do rock a lot of polka dots. It was handmade with no size labels or anything so I took a chance and brought it home. After trying it on I discovered that it is definitely a slimming dress, lol. 

Luckily I started Slimming World a couple of weeks ago so I'll probably fit in it when I reach my target weight. Bring it on! It even has a twirly skirt (which is essential in dress buying for me). The best part about it is that it was only £4. Score!


This Primark necklace actually had some extra dangly plastic bits but I wasn't too keen so I got the jewellery pliers out. What do you think - too plain now?

Primark bangle set.

New things make me happy.

Top picks: Week 44

I'm currently in that age old situation at the moment - now that I'm back from holiday I'm officially poor! Therefore I will be using the power of my imagination to see these pretties in my life :)


I seriously need all of these things in my life. Though how killer is the price tag on that Topshop dress?! Ouch.

What do you have to have this week?
