Earth Hour

this is how we celebrated #earthhour. :)

Are you ready for Earth Hour? This Saturday (the 26th of March) at 8:30pm people will be turning all their lights off around the globe to be a little kinder than we usually are to our lovely planet. Everybody can and should join in at 8:30 pm wherever you are (it's 8:30 in your time zone so some people have already had their earth hour but don't let that stop you being green!).

Please join in and try to go beyond the hour, turn your hall light off when you aren't downstairs, don't keep your tv on standby, don't run your cold tap while you're brushing your teeth.

I'll be candle lit at 8:30 today, I hope you are too.

Pay day #1

I got paid this Monday for the first time ever! It was only £60 for two days training but still I was pretty excited, I've been thinking about what to buy all week and have decided I need some new sensible summer flats & a new school sized bag so I online shopped my socks off and H&M came to the rescue, along with a cute pair of floaty shorts aswell! I'm thinking of making this a feature, next week I'll get about £160 I think so expect something big!

Sweep me off my feet



There aren't words for how badly I want these babys. Please pretty pretty please someone buy me a pair, they're so pretty, the mottled suede in a perfect shade of beige, laced up with suede ties that line the top edge perfectly. They aren't just a pair of shoes, not just something to throw on ugly feet, these are shoes that you pamper your feet for, shoes that you slather moisturiser on your feet and put socks on before you go to bed for. They're more than shoes, they make me think of warm nights out in a city somewhere in Italy teamed with a backless dress and a dark haired hunk with a leather jacket and chiselled cheeks. Alas, it was never meant to be, you can buy these beauties from here but it'll cost you a pretty penny; they're $315.

Oh dear, I seem to have just spewed more than 100 words about a shoe. I'll leave it at that.


Asos I love you


What girl doesn't? Everything's so easily accessible, you can't try things on but it's so easy to tell what the garment is like before you buy it thanks to the videos and 360 views they have for their stock.

I'm getting my first pay on Monday and thus am online shopping! I know this is bad and I'll only get £60 as I only worked two days this month but I don't care! I definitely think this is a good excuse for a shopping trip the question is, what to buy?!

Seeing Double

Bella ThorneBella


Bella & Lily wore the same pretty yellow Topshop dress this week, who do you prefer in it? Personally I'm pro Lily, I love it with the black tights and I'm not too keen on Bella's nails.


Free People

The images in the March 11 Free People catalogue are so beautiful! I love the warmness in them all.


I love it all, some of the pictures towards the end really remind me of when I went to Rome. I really want to go again - I'm dreaming of hot summer nights by fountains, hot feet on cold marble floors, silk scarfs draped around shoulders keeping them from the hot evening air. Somebody take me please!

Why is twitter so popular? Because everything is so condensed. People really are busy nowadays, partially because we want more and more and more; remember the days when a phone with a camera was high tech?
Twitter is like a vitamin tablet, it's everything you need in a teeny tiny easy to handle form. What in a novel could be two pages is condensed to 140 characters.
Aside from all the tweeting I also love the twitter pictures that everyone has, the little squares alongside tweets and re-tweets will make me follow people, they are the body language of twitter.
