Nude





Primark Faux Leather Jacket, Top & Scarf // Boohoo Nude Midi Skirt (similar) // Pull & Bear Bag // H&M Boots 

I'm never 100% sure if I like how midi skirts look on me but after seeing loads of people on Instagram wearing pleated midis I had to get one. Turns out I really like them. I got this one from Boohoo in the Christmas sales and it's pretty darn good. I like it best paired with black accessories, to  stick to my usual plain colour palette.

Gingham & Fishnets




Topshop Dress // Primark jacket, scarf and tights, Doc Martens Shoes

And the search for interesting backgrounds continues. I think bf had fun playing photographer shooting this outfit and I felt that I had achieved official fashion blogger status when there were some odd men walking past wondering what the hell we were doing. Also you'd think that after about 6 years of blogging I would have mastered a decent pose but nah. 

I've been loving pairing my gingham dress with my fishnets and a leather jacket, it really turns it from cutesy to, dare I say it, ~edgy~ look. I'm not totally convinced that it's a weather appropriate outfit choice but I'm willing to sacrifice warmth to look good.

5 February Goals



Well that was a long month wasn't it? I've had a pretty decent January. I've been to London to look around art galleries for my dissertation, I've written a decent amount of my dissertation and I've completed dry January (I had 1 day off but I am making up for it). The next month is going to fly by so here are some goals to keep me on track: 

1. Write more dissertation. I say this is a goal but it's something that I 100% have to do. I want to get as much as I can completed by the end of the month to take of the pressure.
2. Get ahead on essays. Another uni related one but I have a busy month in March so I need to get ahead, I just need some more motivation pls. 
3. Don't let uni stress stop me from having fun. It's super easy to feel bad for having a day off , for not constantly working or just feeling like you haven't done enough. I have some fun things planned for this month and I need to remember that I deserve to have a break!
4. Go running more. I have been on a few runs this year and even though I am awful at it, I want to keep at it and get the most out of my trainers.
5. Get up earlier. I don't know if it's January blues or what but I have been finding it so hard to get up in the mornings. I feel so tired if I don't have at least 10 hours sleep and I find myself nodding off or with itchy eyes throughout the day. I want to get up earlier and be super productive.

Septum Jewellery Collection

I wrote a guide on getting your septum pierced a little while ago and I've since added to my jewellery collection. The majority of my jewellery is from The Body Jewellery Shop who stock products for all piercings from septum jewellery and ear piercings to stretchers

Black Barbell/Horseshoe - This jewellery is super cute and not too in your face so perfect for everyday wear. I like that it's in black as it makes a nice difference to your basic silver jewellery. It's easy to get in and out as you just unscrew one of the balls.


Rose Gold and Crystal Horseshoe - This is on of my favourites. Unlike the one above this one has two pointed closures rather than balls. On each spike there are sweet little crystals which make it perfect for if you want a fancier look if you're going out for a special occasion. 

Rose Gold Hinged Hoop - The picture doesn't do the colour justice but it's a beautiful rose gold colour and we all know how popular rose gold is at the moment, especially in the blogging world. I much prefer hooped septum piercings for everyday wear as you don't have to worry about them being wonky. This one also has a simple hinge closure so it's easy to take it in and out. 

Steel Retainer - I got this one as I conducted some work experience at a school and I had to hide my piercing. This retainer makes it super easy to hide your septum piercing as you just flip it up and hide it in your nose. It can feel a bit weird at first but once you get used to it, you can't even notice that it's there. 

What's your favourite piece?

Brantano Wishlist

1/2/3/4/5

Today I've got a Brantano wishlist for you. I love buying new shoes, especially boots and let me tell you, they have an amazing selection of boots to choose from. I particularly like the Kelly Ankle boots (no.3) especially the chelsea boot, doc marten-esque style to them, they look super comfy and perfect for everyday wear whereas the Chelly boots (no. 2) are a good way to smarten things up a bit. Brogues are another way to go if you're looking for smart and I think the Waving pair (no. 4) would look amazing with a pair of tapered trousers so you're showing off a bit of ankle. Trainers are something I'm desperate to try but I just don't know if I can pull it off but this Rocket Dog Magic ones (no. 5) are really tempting me. If you're really looking to glam up an outfit, maybe for a special occasion and you want to wear heels, the Clare heels (no.1) are so pretty and the strap means they're unlike to fall of so that's a bonus.  

Which are your favourites? Are there any shoe styles that you want to try?
