I've got glitter on the brain!

Ok, so alot of people have a preconception about glitter and think that it just looks tacky and cheap, and unfortunately, I'm ashamed to say I was one of those people. This is mostly due to the fact that I've had some bad experiences with glittery shoes (cheap glittery pumps to be precise), where by the glitter begins on the shoes, but by the end of the day all you're left with is a pair of plain, glitterless pumps and an abundance of glitter on your outfit.
Thankfully though I have found the light, the massive glittery light that is.
 The thing I love about these three pairs of shoes from Topshop is that you don't need to be girly to pull them off. I mean if someone had told me that glittery creepers existed, I certainly wouldn't have believed them, but low and behold, they do exist and look very nice! A pair of glittery shoes can really sparkle up an outfit, and for someone like myself, who isn't the biggest fan of heels, the brogues or creepers are perfect! I'm definitely spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting a pair of glittery shoes, as all the shops sell lovely pairs which I would be happy to wear!
My main tip though when buying a pair of glittery shoes would be to rub your fingers across them (I am aware this may look a bit odd to other shopper, so try and be discrete) this way you can guesstimate how likely the glitter is too come off the shoes!
Do you guys love glitter as much as me? Be sure to comment and let me know!

Sunday Night Finds No.14

Hey guys! Hope every ones had a pleasant week, I certainly have as I've been stocking up for the upcoming festivities, which always makes me ridiculously excited! My first fave this week is this really cute, albeit slightly Summery rose dress from Topshop. I know the pattern and shape of this dress doesn't quite work with the cold weather were having now and I certainly wouldn't were this dress in the Snow, but that is the beauty of layering! This dress would look very nice under an over sized jumper, or a leather jacket, or whatever Winetry items you have lurking in your wardrobe!
My next find this week are these gorgeous burgundy shoes from Miss Selfridge. I love a good chunky heel on a shoe and am actually very reluctant to wear thinner heels, as I'm worried that they'll snap or something. As well as the gorgeous, (and very practical) heel I absolutely love the colour! I just find burgundy so nice to wear and think it's perfectly suited to this time of year! I'm not crazy about the bow, and I would gladly wear them without it, but it does add a kind of cutesy element to the shoes.
 So those are my two finds this week, be sure to comment and let me know what you think of them!

'Your bags from Primark?'

Hey guys! This is just a quick post to show you all this amazing bag I got from Primark recently. Now, I have a love/hate relationship with Primark, I love some of the clothes and accessories, but I really hate the store. I just find it too busy and I'm sure there are more clothes on the floor than on the shelves. But, I popped in there recently just to have a quick look round the shoes (although a quick look soon developed into a long walk around the entire store). After my initial scout around, I spotted this gorgeous bag, which looks so unique and vintage.
Apologies for the poor photo, but I had no natural light to use and took this photo in my bedroom with the blinds down. As you can see, it's a really cute suitcase style bag (I've lusted after one for so long!), and it kind of reminds me of a squirrel suitcase bag from River Island, which I featured in my Sunday Night Faves post a while ago. It has a really nice handle and a shoulder strap, which is adjustable (yay!)
It has little pink and white pinstripes on the inside and has a perfectly sized pocket for your phone or ipod. The best thing about this bag has to be the price, it was just 14 GBP! Even if it's only used once or twice it will sit nicely in the corner of my room as a jewelery or make storage case. 
Have you guys bought anything nice from Primark recently? Be sure to comment and let me know!

Sunday Night Faves No.13

Hey guys! Hope every ones well! Apologies for not blogging much, but I've finally got round to charging the batteries or my camera so expect a few product reviews very soon! Anyway, with Christmas approaching, I find that rather than searching through an abundance of clothing websites, I can just look at my previous Sunday Night Faves posts for some present ideas!  

My first fave this week are these gorgeous dip dye shorts from Topshop. I know they are a tad Summery, but I just love them! Although they wouldn't be worn for quite a few months, I have to say I'm very tempted to get them and just wait until the weather (if it ever does!).
How cute are these little tan ankle boots from Urban Outfitters? They're so lovely and I think they would look adorable with a pair of patterned socks. Obviously you can't wear boots like these in the snow or rain, but for some reason they have a real Christmassy look to them, perhaps it's the tassels. 
This hat is from Urban Outfitters and is without a doubt the cutest hat I've seen this Winter (it even beats that pink one from Topshop that was featured in an earlier post!). I love the pattern, as it makes it look quite vintage and the pom-pom really is the cherry on top of an already lovely cake! I would seriously recommend that everyone invests in a hat, as they're perfect for disguising a bad hair day.
Be sure to comment and let me know what you think of my favourite items this week!

Friday Fashion Icon No.2

Hey guys! I thought I'd start off the weekend by doing a Friday Fashion Icon post. I don't know about you guys, but I go through fazes where I become completely obsessed with what one celebrity is wearing, and although I don't aim to copy their style, I'm very influenced by it. 
Over the past couple of weeks I've really been loving Pixie Lott's style. I like how versitile her she is when it comes to style and although I don't like absolutely everything she wear, some of it I really love! One style that Pixie Lott really suits is cute and preppy, and as you may guess from my obsession with peter pan collars, this is the style that I really love. 
Pixie's heart dress in the first photo is possibley one of the nicest dresses I have ever seen, although some people may find the pattern a bit too much on the eye or dislike the colour, I absolutely love it! If you want to get that Pixie Lott preppy look, I would definitely recommend buying a pair of knee high socks, some loafers or brogues and a fitted blazer. 
Do you like Pixie Lott's style? Be sure to comment and let me know!

Sunday Night Faves No.12

Hey everyone! Apologies for my lack of posts this week, but I've been really busy with school work. I did, however, find time to give my blog a bit of a revamp, which I hope you guys all like. It's definitely getting a lot colder now and I've been hunting for a comfy, yet cute scarf since the start of October. So, you can imagine my delight when I saw this really cute fair isle scarf from Urban Outfitters. I love the Urban Outfitters scarves, because the shape of them is simple and easy to wear. I do actually have a have a tartan one which I bought last year, that I've worn non-stop, so I see the purchasing of another one as an investment of some sort. 
 My next fave this week is anything item from Urban Outfitters. It's these gorgeous large spotted tights! I just love them and think they're an easy way to make an outfit look a lot more interesting. 
My final fave this week is this velvet pinkish top from Topshop. If you can't already tell, I really love my velvet and this top would make the perfect addition to my ever growing velvety wardrobe. I also really love the colour, as I absolutely love pink, whether it's extremely bright or quite pale. The only thing putting me off this relatively simplistic top is the price, as I'm really not sure if it's worth it. 
 Hope you guys like my finds and I would to know what you think, so be sure to comment!

Monday Musings #1 'Why so anonymous?'

This isn't a product or clothing post, this is just a rambley post about why I'm currently an anonymous blogger. I began blogging toward the end of the Summer, mainly because I was reading and enjoying so many blogs and thought that if reading blogs was fun, writing one ought to be a hoot! And it is, I love blogging and can't help feel a sense of pride when I look at my blog.
 However, my decision to remain anonymous is only temporary and I look forward to doing outfit posts so people can really see my personal sense of style. Unfortunately though, I just don't feel ready to put photos of myself up on the Internet where it's so easy for people to judge and criticise you. But, in my few months as a blogger I've found the blogging community to be very positive and rarely see any negative comments. I do really look forward to revealing my identity and making my blog more personal, even though I can't pin point whether that will be when I turn eighteen or forty-three, but I'm sure that I'll know when the time is right.

Sunday Night Faves No.11

Hey guys! Hope you've all had a nice week and had a nice Bonfire Night last night. It's been a pretty busy couple of weeks for me, I have so much school work and I probably won't get a chance to blog until the end of next week, but I am planning to do another Friday Fashion Icon post. As busy as I get I always ensure I do my Sunday Night Faves Post every week, as I'm determined never to miss a week!
Anyway, my first find is this lovely lipglass from Mac's new range 'Glitter And Ice'. I love pretty much everything in the range, the design of the products has a real Christmas feel to it and the colours seem extra sparkly! I think I'll do a post about what's on my Mac Christmas List very soon. This lipglass comes in a several other colours, but this sparkly reddish colour seems perfect for the upcoming festivities.
My next find this week is this brown crochet heart dress from River Island. Usually, crochet isn't something I would consider wearing, as I typically associate it with fancy napkins and doilies. But, there's something about this dress that I really like. The simple shape of the dress contrasts nicely with the interesting crochet detail and I think this dress could look really nice paired with the right accessories. 
I've saved the best until last this week, just look at these amazing silver platforms from Topshop! I really can't get enough of Topshop's shoes and I already have a couple on my Christmas list. This pair stood out so much for me, the colour is just so unique and I think I would feel like I ought to be in space if I put them on. The great thing about these shoes is you could easily just pair them with a simple black bodycon dress and hey ho, you have yourself a pretty fantastic outfit!

Be sure to comment and tell me what you think of my finds!
