Wardrobe Essentials (the classics)


Jeans are obviously a staple no matter what trend, season or weather. They slim anything down, add structure and shape to any outfit. Not only do they dress down any outfit, depending on the colour and the right pair of heels they can make any outfit look fierce and classy. Although I think they're slightly overpriced and not often true to size, I think Topshop jeans are very versatile, I have only ever bought the 'Leigh' and 'Joni' style, they also sell a wide variety of jeans which is always difficult to chose from. 

My favourite place to buy jeans however, is H&M. I recently discovered them as I realised they were less than half the price of Topshop brand and from trying them on, felt like they were going to last me a lot longer. They don't sell as many cuts, colours or styles however I was only looking for a simple black pair and a blue pair that would last me a few seasons. I tried on a 6, being optimistic, however I found they fit perfectly. I first bought a light blue pair as I didn't have a pair similar. Then in went back and bought a black pair as my topshop ones were too short on the leg (long leg problems) I know. For only £14.99 they are comfotable , sturdy, good material and I know they will last me. 

Plain T-Shirts

Pain T-Shirts just speak for themselves I think. They quite literally go with EVERYTHING! You cN find them pretty much everywhere and shouldn't cost more than £20. If they do your being ripped off no matter how 'soft it is'. My personal favourites are black and grey ones. Paired with a pair of skinnies and boots or flats or ever heels for a casual night out, they make any outfit look effortless and simple yet classy and elegant. I picked up my grey one in H&M for £8. In Topshop they are around £10-12 which personally for me if too much for a plain T-Shirt. They are also sold in Zara and Asos. 


A simple, long black coat is essential to any wardrobe. I think they're amazing for layering and adding dimension and shape to any outfit. A simple black coat is just so timeless. Possible the most classic fashion piece ever. Above everything else it elongates everything. An instant classy touch. I also feel it matures any outfit. Some simple gold or silver detailing keeps them looking expensive and elegant. I picked mine up in, again, H&M. Surprisingly enough I got it from the kids section. They go up to a size that fits me very well and was only £30! Bargain! For a cheap one definitely check out H&M however Zara, Cos and Asos also sell amazing quality coats and jackets but for slightly more expensive.

Birthday Burgers

So on the 5th September it was my brothers 18th! Still not over that.. So anyway as he isn't a massive going-out, drinker or party go-er he just wanted to go and see the new film 'Lucy' and then go out for a meal with the family. The film was amazing, the plot being centred around a group of Chinese drug traffickers who plant bags of a lethal drug ,that allows a human to access 100% of their brain, in 4 innocent citizens. The film escalates into what happens when the bag splits. However you will have to go and see the film for the rest, I strongly recommend you go and see it unless you are squeamish as the opening credits do say 'strong bloody violence'. After the film my family and I went across the road to Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK) in Richmond for dinner. Blow are my photos of the meal and my outfit for the night! Enjoy!

London/Saatchi Gallery Visit!


So a while ago myself and Anthony (best friend) went up to London to check out the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea as we are both studying art for our GCSE's. I had heard from friends and other people that the Saatchi Gallery was a great place to go if you were in need of a little inspiration.. 

South Kensington - Wagamamas!

We then got back on the tube to Sloane Square, walked over to the gallery. Overall the Saatchi was amazing! The different collections were so interesting and I was very pleased at the amount of inspiration I got for my GCSE topic 'disguise'. HEre are some pictures from the visit...

Essie Fiji Polish

So this is my first blog post for my new blog. Exciting! Thought I would do a little review of a new product I purchased the other day from Essie. Its a colour I've eye'd up for a while now so I finally persuaded myself to get it.

Essie - Fiji
Rings - H&M

 As my school has a neutral nail polish policy (stupid I know) but yes so I have recently either worn Topshop Matte Sober polish or Rimmel's 60 Second polish in 'Caramel Cupcake'. Both of these, however, I don't feel are great quality. I used the 60 Second Polish purely because I have no patience when it comes to painting my nails so the thought of them drying in under a minute was pretty appealing. I do like the 'Caramel Cupcake' colour however it was sometimes a bit too dark, almost a murky kind of nude which, after a while, I started to not like. So anyway I bought Essie Fiji and I LOVE it. It's a known fact that Essie polish's are amazing. After a couple of coats the colour is so pigmented and vibrant. I specifically chose this colour as I will be allowed to wear this in school and it's the prettiest colour EVER.its a beautiful baby pink with white highlights which makes it quite bright but still elegant and dainty. Really recommend it! They are quite pricey for a nail polish, about £8 I think but so worth it to buy the essential base colours then build a collection. I also have 'Lilacism' and 'Mint Candle Apple'.
