OK everyone, say hello to Snowy! Isn’t she beautiful? I met her for the first time yesterday & fell in love. She is my Auntie's neighbours bunny, she’s looking after her & her sister for the weekend so we had to go & say hello! :) When my Mum suggested that we should do outfit pictures with her I couldn’t resist. She is such a well behaved, happy rabbit. & she’s super photogenic, seriously, rabbit model in the making?!

Anyway, this pretty little dress was sent to me by the ladies at Poppy Lux. Now if you haven’t heard of them already, they are a fab new online boutique store & they stock a bomb of pretty printed pieces. I’m wearing their Alexa dress, which pits perfectly, it’s not too tight & clings to all the right places! I also really like the mesh material that it’s made out of, it’s heavy & not itchy at all which is fab & the cut out detail at the front just adds that extra bit of pizazz! It’s in the sale now too, go & snap up a bargain! (here>link) Also there is 10% off you first order & free UK delivery! AMAZING!

Hope you have all had a fab week! Speak soon xx

Never Fully Dressed

Shirt Dress*: Never Fully Dressed
Sunflower Floral Crown: DIY
Long Pendant Necklaces: Empty Casket
Gold Hamsa Necklaces*: Delilah Dust

Apologies for the super bleached out photos, we only realised after we had shot these that the ISO was on way higher than usual >.< Ooops. But you know what, I quite like it, it’s a nice change :)

This shirt dress is my new absolute favourite! I just know I am going to wear it to death! Just look at the waffle cut out middle for goodness sake, it’s perfect! The guys at Never Fully Dressed sent it to me last week & honestly guys, I love it & I love their whole site, they are a hidden treasure & you need to go & check them out, especially if you are fond of the boho look like myself. I literally need everything that is on their site, in my wardrobe. & I have my beady eye on the white/cream version of this shirt too, it’s just too perfect! Thank you so much NFD!

I have been meaning to photograph these Delilah Dust necklaces for what seems like an absolute age. They are perfect & Delilah Dust is one of the most awesome jewellery shops I have encountered on the web. Antonia makes & sells some outstandingly beautiful pieces at amazing prices which makes her the bomb in my books! Check out Delilah Dust here>link.

Leather Jacket: ASOS
Top: Primark
Jeans: Topshop

I have to admit, that I have been a bit of a blogging grump lately & to be honest, I think I need to snap myself out of it asap! This was going to be a ranty kind of post but I have decided against it as I really don’t need that kind of negativity here, I need to stop caring about things too much…

Anyway, I love this outfit. I’ve been looking for a new pair of jeans for a while now as I am sick & tired of wearing skinny jeans. I have come to the conclusion that they really don’t do anything for my figure, they accentuate the one part of my body that I loath (oh hello huge hips & short legs >.<) so I have decided that from now on, skinny jeans are a no go until I get a bit of body confidence back…

PS this jacket is the best thing in the world & I love it!

Also, I really want to start doing my ootd outtakes posts again, would that be something you guys would be interested in or do you perffer the srs blggr posts? ;) You can see previous ones here> 1, 2, 3, 4.

Money Supermarket Big Night In*…

IMG_3481 2IMG_3348IMG_3391IMG_3356GIF 2 USEIMG_3462 2IMG_3466 2GIF USE 1IMG_3536IMG_3561IMG_3494IMG_3519IMG_3411IMG_3564IMG_3419
So todays post is a wee bit different from the usual. Money Supermarket got in touch with me & asked if I’d like to take part in a little competition they have going on where you have to have a ‘big night in’ for under 50 squids! (if you want to read a little more about it you can here>link) I got very excited about the whole thing & jumped at the chance, after all, who doesn't like a good ol’ night in?!

As you can see from the pictures Liam, Jack & I decided to have an astronomy themed night. If you have been reading my blog/followed me on twitter for a while, you might already know that we are both astronomy geeks so a night like this seemed pretty apt!

Between watching a bit of ol’ Coxy (gotta love Brian Cox) playing with our new star projector & eating space themed snacks (flying saucers, starmix, rainbow drops & galaxy) in our home made fairy light den, we decided to venture into the garden & photograph some stars with my DSLR which was really fun & obvs we ended up making light trail pictures with our phones too haahaha (‘:

All in all we had a brilliant & money savvy night, thank you Money Supermarket! Staying in definitely beats going out!

What do you think of our big night in? Do you guys prefer staying in or going out on the town? What would be your perfect night in? :)
