This weekend I did a little shopping around town and found some shops I never knew existed in my City. It sparked a few childhood memories as I found one of those strawberry lollipops that is also a whistle! I had to have that and then I found those old mood rings as well, I also had to have one of those! I’ve been wearing it every day since. I love how it changes colour with the temperature. Thank you Hawkins Bazaar for existing! They have so much stuff in there from the past! Even the original toy phones etc from when I was a baby! I’m definitely making a trip back to that store 🙂 I also went round my regular shops and ate lunch outside the Abbey. The Abbey is so beautiful and historic! It’s amazing. I will take some photos of it when I next go into town but I never took a camera with me this time so I took the photos in the woodland area at home. I wore a Coral Dress from Asos, Pewter Bloch Ballerina flats, Ray Ban Aviators, Miss Selfridge Heart Shell necklace, Bangles and a Bow Hair Clip. I then changed for the evening, keeping the same dress and sunglasses but wearing my Topshop T-Bar wedges and a Miss Selfridge colourful Cardigan that I got in the sale. I am in love with this dress and these shoes! I watched the movie Dear John with Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried in the evening too. It’s such a beautiful film! I cried during the sad parts but it was amazing. I honestly…
I was so excited when I found this Fuchsia Dress by Mina because it has my favourite flowers on it! Fuchsia Gerberas! I think it’s so pretty and the print is gorgeous! I paired it with my new Topshop T-Bar Wedges in Tan and my Adele Marie Fuchsia Swarovski bangle that I got last year in Harrods on my birthday when I visited London. I normally wouldn’t pick wedges this high but they truly are stunning and I am in love with them! I have worn them for 3 days straight since buying them on Saturday 🙂 This was the first time wearing my Mina dress out though, I’m so glad I did. It’s so bright and it screams Summer. My Adele Marie bangle is actually probably one of my most worn pieces of Jewellery, I have worn it every week since August last year! The sunset was so beautiful this evening too, the entire sky was bright orange! I’m really lucky to live right next to endless fields, it’s mesmerizing when the sun goes down and it looks like the whole sky is glowing orange, red and pink. I have a better blog post coming this week showcasing the wedges more so you can see them but for now I have these flowery photos 🙂 I’m also loving the Fuchsia Gerbera photos with the chocolate heart in the middle. I found those 2 photos on google by Vanessa Pike and I had to share!

I just received a copy of the Christian Louboutin Autumn/Winter 2010 Look Book from my favourite Louboutin Boutique lady here in the UK! Thank you! I wanted to share with you the amazing styles coming out! I am in LOVE! Seriously! At this time I am only allowed to post the photos from the Look Book, I’m not allowed to post the actual new styles just yet so that post will be coming around the end of May. But let me tell you, you are in for a treat! His new styles are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I’m in love! Pigalle flats, strass ballerina’s, Jem booties and so many more! The only thing I’m not liking is the fur, I’m not a fan of that. I’ve seen a lot of Look Books in my time, mostly the premium denim ones but I have to say, this is the most beautiful Look Book I have ever seen! It’s so posh and classy, it’s sexy! Just click on each image to view them in a larger size 🙂
Denim Debutante wanted to interview me for her blog so I was really excited to do it! This is one of my first interviews and I am waiting for another one to appear online soon on another website. She asked me lots of questions about how I got started, my denim tips, my Prima Jeans collaboration and more 🙂 I hope you enjoy reading it! Click here to read the interview on Denim Debutante.
You have to right click and view image on this photo to see it in all it’s high resolution glory! I was in awe when I saw this! These Christian Louboutin Strass shoes all belong to Phillipe Blond, he sent this photo to a friend on TPF (Elise499 from Louboutin Passion Blog). The Dahlia are my favourite for the Fall 2010 collection and they wont be released until June so he is really lucky to have those Strass Dahlia (the middle booties), I’m very envious! I can’t stop staring! 😀 Isn’t it beautiful?!
Here is part 2 of the Botanical Gardens I went to over the weekend. I really can’t stress just how beautiful it is there. There’s something about being next to a fresh water stream that trickles down, it’s so relaxing and just nice to sit next to. I love wildlife and nature, the world can be so beautiful, so colourful and pretty sometimes 🙂 My outfits in these photos are: Rock & Republic Harlan in Hacker Blue, Christian Louboutin Coral Pigalle, All Saints Coral scarf and a simple H&M white T-Shirt. The other is my Steve Madden sandals and a unknown blue maxi dress. For more photos and a review of the Rock & Republic jeans please click here.

So I took a trip to the beautiful Botanical Gardens here in England on the weekend and the weather was really hot! I love the trees, the pretty plants and just being there, it’s one of the most stunning places with all the wildlife. I must have been to the Botanical Gardens many many times in my life, it’s one place that I love to go when the weather is warm and the sun is shining. I’m breaking this post into 2 and including photos from the weekend and times when I have been before. Hope you enjoy them! It’s such a colourful place 🙂 For reference I am wearing Siwy Madeline shorts in Lilt, Steve Madden Gladiator sandals, French Connection sunglasses and just a simple Topshop T-Shirt. The other outfit is a Topshop denim vest, unknown floral dress and Steve Madden sandals again. For more photos of the Siwy shorts, please click here. I will also be reviewing the Topshop denim vest at some point too 🙂
