Leopard Bottoms

Hello you beautifuls
Some of you may remember my post on the Miss Selfridge Lookbook recently,  and my love for the black trousers with leopard panels.
I got an e-mail to say they were now in store for a mere £22, so I was straight there! Unfortunately they are actually leggings! I tried them on anyway but of course they aren't as impressive as a pair of trousers or jeans as I thought they were.

They are still pretty impressive but not £22 for a pair of leggings. I'm really not a fan of leggings as trousers, it's acceptable when worn well, but I do see some awful threadbare, underwear visible states!

I hate it when things like this happen, I have been waiting for these for a while now and I've sadly not happy with them at all.

I've not had a halloween post yet as I'm actually going on a belated halloween evening out tomorrow night. And of course the crazy old cat lady in me is going to come out - I shall be dressing as a black cat :)

Camel on Black

Good Evening You Beauties

So the other day I recieved an e-mail from the lovely Topshop (as I'm sure many of you did) mentioning their love the the mix of camel and black. Camel isn't really a colour I have in my wardobe so I thought I would have a little look what was available.

Outfit post - Texture Mix


So today I'm wearing a green denim bodycon dress with a metalic style black skirt over the top, contrasted with a mohair cardigan. Nothing amazing but I'm at uni in a couple of hours so I dont feel like making much of an effort.
I've been so busy recently I haven't had much time at all to check out all your latest blog posts. When I get a spare half an hour I do a quick post but then I have no time to reply to comments or simply read any blogs, so I'm sorry! I will get back on track nearer the end of the week. The weekend and the beginning of the week are always quite busy for me.

The last two weeks in nails

 Here are a few photos of my nails over the past two weeks :

Barry M - silver and black

Barry M - White, Newspaper and surgical spirit
(excuse the messy edges!)

 These are so easy to do! just follow the tutorial on the Topshop blog here.

Also the surgical spirit is about £8 in Boots and only £2.50 in Superdrug, so shop around a little if you can as you can get it pretty cheap.


The black french manicure
China Glaze - Black

Also I have had a couple of new followers... Thankyou all very much! :)

Outfit post - Autumn Jumper

Teal Jumper - Primark £10 (current stock - more colours available)

Harness Shoes - Ebay


pleather zip leggings - H&M £7.99 (current stock also in faux suede)

Necklace - Topshop (£5 sale), Cat ears ring - Ebay

hello beauties.


I have been a very busy girl today! I went to the gym this morning, came back home blogged, did some uni work, caught up with Pretty Little Liars and now I'm at my boyfriends blogging again.

I just wanted to show you what I'm wearing today. This is a new jumper from Primark... I was considering spending £100 on a see by Chloe jumper but then decided against it, and in my mind that means I have a good £50 - £100 to spend on other clothes (this is probably why I have a bulging wardrobe). Anyway this jumper is SO comfy and only £10, I saw it in Red, Cream and Black in the Nottingham store.


A little off the fashion/style theme of this blog but I thought I may as well let you know whats going on in my life aswell. Basically I have a little problem when reading lots of black text on a pure white background. The white stands out more to me and so it difficult to read the actual words.. I've googled it. I I have a feeling I may have Visual stress syndrome. I'm just confused as to whether I see a doctor or a optician (as I can actually see things close and far away its purely that my eyes hurt looking at white paper or a screen..strange)


Enough rambling 

Dont forget leave your blog links below and I'll check out your blog

Outfit Post - My New Skirt

Skirt - Topshop (Sale)
Necklace - Primark
excuse the black on my hand, it's a stamp from the previous night out. It wouldn't come off!


Good evening beauties

This is actually what I wore yesterday but my internet was down lastnight so I couldn't post. Nothing special but it shows my two purchases from the Topshop sale, the Skirt (£14), top (£10) and I did get some jewellery which I will share with you in my upcoming posts! As for my rings they are from a number of places and I've had them all for a while (so I'm probably in need of some new rings to showcase).

I have some posts organised for the next few days, I have a lovely blogger to share with you, my newspaper print nails, highstreet finds and more.
 
I'm going to stop waffling now and catch up with your new posts!

This is a very unorganised blog post because I had planned an outfit post, but it all went down hill yesterday when I ate some noodles and splattered the sauce accross my new cream top.

They have arrived!!



So yes they are replicas, not the real deal. 
But 1) I can't afford another £150+ on a pair of shoes 2) The real deal are leather and I'm vegetarian.
Which is what lead me to buy these replicas from China online and they look great! (Well I think so anyway)

I'm not sure how you guys feel about replica shoes but this is where I got them if you are interested.
here and there are some here too (they didn't go up to my size though).

Also I know alot of you love Litas but cannot afford them, whilst searching for the shoe above I came across this Lita Replica. I'm not such a big fan but I'm probably being bias as I have a pair of my own. These seem to be the best replica I've seen so far, as some of the others looks a little cheap.

For those of you wondering about ordering from China, I have never been charged any customs, VAT, extra charges etc and I have order quite alot from china. The shop that I got my shoes from here, got back to me very quickly with any queries I had. Do be prepared though that the cheap prices do mean cheaper shoes, non leather probably primark quality.

The shoes pictured above were £25! 
But sadly when they arrived there was actually a nail of some sort sticking up from the platform inside the shoe, making them unwearable. I e-mailed them and they got back to me within an hour to apologise. They offered to send out a whole new pair free of charge or to simply refund me £15.
I went for the refund as I cannot wait another 25 days for them to get here!
And looking at all the feedback it looks as though this was a one off.

Sorry about the essay!! 
For those of you skimming the writing I have made some text bold/underlined to show you the main points.

Outfit Of The Day - Faux Leather


Skirt,T-shirt, Necklace : Primark
Jacket, Faux Fur, Bag - H&M


Good evening you beauties :)

I'm wearing some of my new items from Primark that I got earlier this week. I went for lunch with my mum and sister in town today, I was approached by somebody to take photo of my outfit as an exmple of tailored outfits which was very nice!

I'm also thinking of changing my URL/Name of my blog as I'm not entirely happy with the one I have. When I picked 'Lets put our hearts together' I love Beach Boys and I picked a song title at random. I didn't put much thought into the name of my blog as I wasn't sure if it was something I would continue but now I feel like the URL is too long. So I'm not too sure what to do ... hmmm.

I've been shopping

Hello everybody! :)

headbands - H&M £2.99, Necklace - Primark £2
