New room inspiration

Leave a Comment
So as I have a new job , I am relocating from Lincoln to Nottinghamshire. This means another opportunity to redecorate another room , you guessed it - white. Here is a post of how my current room looks at the minute. I'm not going much different other than a few new accessories, and I'm not having the grey throw or cushions anymore. I have been painting old furniture all morning so I most likely have paint in my hair as I type this. I have been hugely inspired lately, and really inspired by Kate from GhostParties. She has that dream white wood floor flat going on that I one day lust for. I thought I would share my recent inspo's in this post with some images from Pinterest.




Below is a little inspo board I created to mix together things that I either already have and want to get to add to my room.



 Key words into my current dream bedroom interior consist of,

Minimal, copper, black & white, pineapples, marble, h&m home, quotes, Buddhas, candles, fashion books, vogue magazines, green plants, chic cushions, white bedding, ring hand stand, Jo Malone, Diptyque.

I know my taste isn't everyone's cup of tea. People think too much white is excessive and I often get asked how I keep it clean! But for how good it looks, it's worth the upkeep. If you want to know where anything is from then comment below. It's all a mix of items for h&m home, Notonthehighstreet.com, Next, Esty.com, Ikea and Urban Outfitters.

I'll keep you updated on my room progress and the finish!

Camel skirts and black turtle necks

 Outfit, New Look.

 I absolutely adore anything camel at the moment. I'm loving pencil skirt and turtle neck combo's. This to me is day wear, but obviously this outfit would be suitable to go to dinner or the cinema where I'm going to tonight to finally see 50 Shades. I'll probably swap my pointed loafers for my new Topshop shoes in this post. Swap the turtle neck for either a leather or velvet bralette and even a biker jacket and some cut out/sandal heels then you also have a perfect night out outfit. The skirt is also a good investment to my 'new job wardrobe' as I think I'll be living in turtle necks and pencil skirt combinations for that. Oh and yes this whole outfit was purchased from New Look. How amaze is that as to me this outfit kinda has a Zara feel to it, but obviously for half the price.

Three black bikinis

The all in one


 The high rise


 The Triangl



I don't really know how I feel about having these photo's on the internet, but then again I am just in a bikini and everyone posts themselves in a bikini from their holidays, so what difference does it really make? I was eager to do a bikini post after buying two that I adore from New Look, the all in one swimsuit and the high rise bikini. I knew I wanted a all in one suit as I thought it made a nice change from the typical two piece. The cut outs was also a extra detail in this swimsuit that I loved and felt like it was something Missguided would sell. I also knew I wanted a bikini that was more high up on your waist. Every year I eye up one from Topshop but when it was around June / July time my size was always out of stock and this is the reason for grabbing one NOW. This one also had a bit more to it then the standard black one I used to see in Topshop. It also has a mesh effect on the bikini bottoms. I know that three black bikini's may be a bit too over the top but I promise that if I buy another it will be a colour one (well white.. ) I have blogged about my triangl bikini here. 

I think I am going away twice this year. Costa Del Sol with my family and then somewhere in September with my boyfriend hopefully. I have not been away on holiday properly since 2011! How crazy is that. I chose to go to Festivals instead but now I need sun, sea, sand and cocktails desperately.

Maybe this post is a tad early in the year, but I think if you don't start preparing for your holidays asap, then all the good stuff goes fast. In August shops will be probably be preparing for winter again. In the future I will do a holiday wishlist blog post where I will probably be lusting after particular items, just like I'm currently lusting after this Eat, Sleep, Tan, Repeat clutch from New Look and this Topshop mesh tote. Drooling.

All Topshop everything and a quick point

4 comments

Firstly I want to start off my saying that I'm not sorry for my mirror selfies anymore or the rawness of my blog. I'm old school and this was how everybody blogged back in the day. I'm a fan of bedroom blogs, showing the real you, maybe a bit of clutter around you and not pretending to be a model in the middle of a street. I also blog without the intention of  one day becoming a huge famous blogger. It's never been my intention, I blog because I have enjoyed it since I first ever started just over two years ago now. I don't know how many people read my blog, but even if it's only two or three, I'm happy with that. My blog is somewhere where I can express things, look back on outfits and use it as my little online style and life dairy. I'm so content with how things are and I don't get stressed out with blogging. I want a successful career, lots of money (ambitious I know), my friends and family around me and for them to be healthy, nice clothes and involving myself with fashion daily, whether that is by reading others blogs, magazines, Instagraming #ootd's, browsing tumblr, doing a blog post etc. It just makes me happy, success in blogging or not. I'm not striving for it, or asking everyone to follow me on every blog I go on. This thought came to mind as I'm reading so many blog posts lately where people are giving out blog tips or moaning about the blogisphere and saying they are going to stop blogging because 'too many people are blogging these days'. I don't get it. Blog because it makes you happy, forget about where it could take you and do it in  your own way. Why does it matter if everyone starts up a blog?  Just focus on yours and gain inspiration from others. Just wanted to get that off my mind.

As you can see in the photos, I purchased those beautiful Topshop shoes tooday. Black, smart, classic with a small chunky square heel so nice and easy to walk in and really comfortable. They were a bit of a splurge for me but I justified it by saying to myself that I needed some smart, classy shoes for my new job. They are perfect for most occasions too, whether that's pairing them with some skinny jeans for a evening meal, or cigarette trousers. They are similar in some ways to my New Look peep toe heels, but my New Look pair are becoming quite scuffed and have a more edgy feel to them rather then classy and so I didn't think they would be appropriate for my new job but it's really hard to know the boundaries in clothing till I start working there. I'm really glad that my student card is still valid so I could get student discount off my new outfit (basically yay for losing my card in Second Year and getting it replaced and the University adding a longer expiry date on it!).

Then impulse shopping got the better of me and I picked up a monochrome pencil skirt which I thought made a bit of a statement, along with a pastel blue shirt. Black and white really does get boring sometimes so I was really drawn to the colour of this shirt. I think this is one of my favorite outfits I have put together in while - I adore the shirt. It's not too structured, it has a loose feel, the material is strong and the colour is perfect. I have budgeted for a new 'smarter' section to my wardrobe and so I have been on a clothing mission and I'm absolutely loving this new excuse to shop. Now I just need a hair cut - desperately.
