Travel Destinations: Marrakech

Today's destination is Marrakech, one of the largest cities in Morocco.
It's a relatively cheap place to go and lovely and hot! When I went in October (last year) it was still a sweltering 31 C! Lots of UK airports fly there and the flights can be quite reasonable. The currency is Moroccan Dirham and last time I went, it was about £1 = 11 Dirham.

Christmas cheer!

So last week I had a mosey up to Oxford Street to look at the lights, and then on to Libertys off Carnaby street- I love their Christmas section :)
I must say, wasn't that impressed with the Marmite lights- guess you love them or hate them (haha terrible joke!) but I loved the other lights so I'm only showing them :) oh and the Carnaby street lights were lovely!

If the shoe fits...

Just a quick post; I wanted to show you these amazing shoes, I was kindly sent by the lovely people at Keds, they've been making classic canvas trainers since 1916, when they first made their "feel-like-everyday's-a-Saturday" shoe) or 'champion' classic rubber soled shoe.
They are worn worldwide, and Taylor swift has even got in on the Ked action, with her picks and RED colection, there are so many to pick from, the classic canvas lace up sneaker in so many different colours & patterns to boots with faux shearling inside (warm!) and slip ons.
(Sorry about the crazy lighting in this photo- no idea what happened!!)
I really wanted some classic red lace ups and these Keds seemed perfect- but the boring practical side of me, drove me to pick these ones as they looked sooo warm and would keep my feet snugly when I walk to uni in the soon to be Siberian winter that the UK is expecting!.I'm really happy with them, they are Nubuck suede with this lovely wool pattern by the ankle. Maybe when summers here again, I'll finally buy some Red Keds :)

As you can see, they look great with my classic skinnies- how do you wear your Keds? :)
Thanks for reading!

Moroccan Berber vegetable couscous

So it's been quite a while since I did a recipe/cooking post. I haven't had time to cook anything interesting and take photos tbh! But finally this weekend I did! I made Moroccan/Berber vegetable couscous (and I added Lamb to mine, but it's optional).
This has to be my least lazy recipe yet, as it involves quite a lot of chopping/cooking/stirring/ time!

Just a short, lazy post today, of what I've been up to lately, I don't have instagram; I have a shit-berry so here's some images squished together in photoshop of life lately :)

Ok from left to right: Smiley faced frappe :), Simon Pegg filming 'Worlds End' in my hometown, attempt at eating halthily, Ed's diner shake, Burger (fail), trying the Costa black forest hot choc (amazing!), Trying the Startbucks Eggnog Latte (disgusting!- my friend described it as 'burnt eggs and cloves'), Cutest Xmas cards 'Christmas Fishes', Aw poor unaware turkeys, Carnaby street lights, Rubard candle :)
So there we have it, life has mainly consisted of coffee, food, train travel and christmas shopping/wrapping,  trying to eat healthily (but failing miserably at the weekend! I've also joined the horse riding soc. at Uni and have been riding twice, the first time. OMG! I'm so unfit, I felt like I was having a heart attack, and afterwards my legs and back hurt so much. I was walking around like a bow-legged old lady for days, my legs were so stiff. It has been a loooong time since I last went riding!
What have you all been up to lately?
I've been listening to this song TOO many times! It's covered by this amazingly talented 12 year old(!) Billie Tweddle for Ont' Sofa

Party outfits... Jeans?

I've seen a lot of party outfits pop up over the last few weeks, ranging from general Christmas parties, to nights out (Christmas eve!) to the office work party. And most of them include dresses, skirts and sparkly things. I have nothing against these, I love sparkly dresses! But I haven't seen many post on party outfits with jeans?
So I thought I'd do a few outfits, featuring my favourite women's jeans, from one of my favourite places to get jeans- French Connection! I don't often talk about FC but when it comes to jeans and the quality and fit I don't think you can beat them. I always used to get my jeans from Topshop and after a few months wear they'd go saggy :( Bur none so far from FC, they seem to be the best for women's jeans out there!
1) Looker legs waxed jeans £75- French Connection   2) Graphic Gem heel shoe boots £70-Topshop  3) Lace back vest £28- Topshop  4) Studded oversize clutch £22.99- Missguided  5) Deerhunter collarless jacket £125- FC
6) Bitter plum winter  lilly jeans £77- FC  7) Suede shopper £29.99- Zara  8) Edith lace tie top £57- FC  9) Oatmeal platform court shoes £19.99- New look  10) Vila Black sequin blazer £64.99- New Look

Gift idea; Jewellery

This is just a short post today, again focussing on gift ideas, looking at jewellery at affordable prices.
The first place featured is Bear and Mojo. If you haven't heard of them, they are a British accessory brand based in Manchester that sell earrings, necklaces, rings, scarves, collar tips and chains and a selection of handmade bracelets. Below I've featured some of my favourite pieces that I think would make great gifts and they're all £6 or under! Your can find them here or on twitter where they have regular promotions!
1) Vintage stone ring £5   2) Geo Cube ring £5  3) Handmade mini wing and cord bracelet £5  4) Three finger texture ring £6  5) Anchor double ear cuff £6  6)  Black stone stud earrings £5  7) Bronze texture armour ring £5

Gift Ideas...

So as people seemed to like the last Gift idea post I did- and that was a purely selfish one for me, I thought I'd do another few posts based on gifst for other people, certain ages ranges and relationship to you. 
So first up; Baby. Depending on how old you are, its's probable you're going to know someone who has a baby (2 and under?). Buying for babies is relatively easy as they can't say they don't like it and would like the gift receipt to return it. Just make sure you buy in the right age range! Plus you don't really need to distinguish between genders as they're pretty much just genderless scream/poo machines at that age?
All Mothercare 1) ELC Wiggle Giggle Lady bird £12  2)  V tech Crawl and Learn bright lights ball £15.99
3) ELC What the Ladybird heard Sound Book £6.49  4) ELC Seaside pour and play bath toy £10

I Love Music 'tag'

Essie Autumn 2012 collection

So lately I've been going a bit crazy with the Essie polishes and frittering away whatever money I have!
But I couldn't not buy it? Their latest collection called Stylenomics, and contains the perfect colours for autumn, grey/beige (geige/brey?) neutrals, reds and deep (DEEP) reds and a lovely almost black, forest green colour.

Travel Destinations: San Francisco

Unfortunately this isn't somewhere I can talk about personally; as I've never been! I've always wanted to go, and have known others that have, my dad used to work out there a lot, the boyfriend lived out there for a bit, friends have been there on holiday. I've wanted to go for years!
This image was borrowed from this amazing blog 'Lost in the 415' (hope they don't mind) Go check them out, they're great!

Introduction to... *Scentsy*

I was contacted about 2 weeks ago by Lori, an independent consultant from Scentsy in the US. I'd never heard of the company before, and she wondered if she could send me some samples and I review them on here. They arrived today and smell amazing.
Scentsy is a company in the US which specialises in a 'no flame, no soot, no lead' candle. They sell 'scented wickless candles and decorative ceramic warmers, which together provide a safer alternative to burning wicked candles, as there is no flame. The warmers are powered by a low Watt bulb that slowly melts the candle'. Scentsy is only available from local consultants and not from retails stores (in the US- it could be different in the UK?)
Their warmer are so pretty, here are a few from their September 'fall' catalogue:
I believe they normally cost around $30-60, as they're ceramic, and these are also from the 'premium' collection

Holiday season: Gift ideas

I'm unlucky enough to have both Christmas and my birthday fall within 3 days of each other which results in lots of crap 'joint' gifts. Don't get me wrong a gift is a gift, it's just a bit disappointing getting one instead of two? And having to wait a whole year to get 'one' again!?
The thing is, this year I'm really stuck for ideas when people ask me what I want to both- let alone the one (the people that know me well and my hatred of the dreaded joint gift!!)? I just don't know, so I thought entering this blogger challenge might help me find some inspiration!
1) Hessian Owl Hipflask £12- U.O.
2) Neom Sumptuous Travel candle £15- Neom
3) Benefit 'She' Jetset!' £29.50- John Lewis
4) House of Marley headphones £30- U.O
5) Origins 'Let it glow' £25- Origins
As this is a list for me and a bit self indulgent I thought I'd show things I actually want and have since put on my christmas list. Namely the House of Marley Jamaica headphones. I just think these are so cool, with fabric wiring and wooden look earbuds. I've wanted them ever since I saw someone on the tube wearing them and stared at the headphones for the whole journey. I probs freaked them out a bit.. oh well!
The rest I think is pretty self explanatory, I've wanted a Neom candle for aaages and love Benefit and Origins. The hipflask; well that's to hold my alcohol for when I go out drinking as I'm to skanky to buy some- plus it has owls! You can never go wrong with owls....

Thanks for reading, what's on your Christmas lists this year?

Winter coat dilemma?

Winter is coming (GOT!) and it’s time to get sorted for the cold, fog, mist, rain, sleet & snow-all lovely features of the British weather! So I've put together some coat do's and don't's and my dilemma; I can't pick just one! But with a student budget I'm going to have to!

All Hallows Eve...

I'm not usually a big celebrator of Halloween, especially when it falls mid week like today, if it was on a Saturday and there was a party, I'd dress up. Today all I could muster was some dripping blood nail art.
I do however, love the stories. So today I've put together a list of some of my favourites scary books!

Essie polishes and a review

After a week of too much spending (I literally have no money now!) I thought I'd show some of the additions I made to my Essie nail polish collection  and also review a topcoat I bought on a whim which is brilliant!
I bought, Navigate her, Ballet Slippers, A Crewed interest and Mint Candy Apple.

Winter Warmers: pie

A chicken and mushroom pie in this case. This is one for the meat eaters out there, but not to worry 'Vegetablerians'! I've put in a few veggie suggestions later on. I've never really made pie before or been a huge fan of it to be honest. But I found myself bored one evening and kind of craving pastry and meaty pie-ness. I even went and bought myself two cheap pie dishes (as I had none)! As per, this is a slightly lazier option.....

Shades of Autumn... part deux

So this weekend was a bit of a boring one, I was still feeling quite ill and the weather was pretty rubbish! So we stayed in for most of it, apart from a little photography trip/ car ride out and about. I managed to get some allright photos of the autumnal-ness and thought I'd share (sorry for the snap happy post in advance)
Empty, tree lined street in my town.

Life lately...

Since starting back at university I've been struggling with time keeping, my first lecture back I was 25 minutes  late as I couldn't find the weird room that I'd never been to before or even people working in the building knew of! I arrived late and had to do a kind of 'walk of shame' around the room to find a chair!
So anyway, just wanted to do a little update, say what I've been up to lately and why I haven't been on as much recently!
A you can see my 'spare' time involved a lot of cocktails :) Clockwise its; crack o'dawn on the train to uni, TGIF cocktail 'bowls', too much reading for uni, teapot cocktails in a speak easy.
I've been doing too much reading for uni, and getting up way too early, I've also been trying to fit ingoing to the gym, since I joined and all it seems silly not to go. But I do hate it!

I went to see The Perks of being a Wallflower on weds, I didn't think much to it!! Anyone else seen it or read the book? I've also been listening to a lot of Ben Howard, Mumford and Sons, Lana del Ray and randomly Baz Luhrman's Everybody's free(to wear sunscreen). I thought I'd finish on a lovely quote from that song:
'Don't worry about the future, or worry; but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blind sides you at four pm on some idle Tuesday. Do one thing everyday that scares you'

House of Fraser: Oasis Autumn line

I was recently contacted by House of Fraser who asked me to pick out some of my favourite pieces from The Oasis collection on the House Of Fraser website.
Personally I'm a massive fan of Oasis and love their pieces, I always look there first for a 'going out' dress or jacket and have recently found a new love for their shoes.
I decided to choose a few items that represent my personal style but also were key pieces this Autumn- and key trends. I chose pieces that are classic but adaptable; dressed up or down and used as a starting point to create different looks. I chose key pieces like a (P)leather skirt and baroque top. and trends like western, stud, faux fur collars and oxblood.
I hope you like them!

I think my favourites have to be the Ankle boots and Leopard collared top of the first 2 outfits- I love the colour of the boots and I love the Fur collar quilted coat and the Baroque embellished top of the second.

What do you guys think? Do you have any favourites from the Oasis collection you would have styled differently? 
Thanks for reading :)

Peach Upside down cake

This is the lazy girl's recipe, as I'm using peach slices from a tin, you are more than welcome to cut up 4-5 peaches. But I couldn't be bothered...
Its pretty tasty and easy to make, so one of my favourites. You will need: a whisk (electrical preferred- this is the lazy girl's recipe!), a mixing bowl, some sort of measuring/weighing device, a baking tray.. an oven.
The ingredients are;

Back to Uni I go...

Bit of an odd post today, yesterday I officially started back at University bright and early at 9am!
I thought I'd do a little 'all the things I take to uni' kind of thing. As I have bought a lot of new notebooks and raided WHSmiths to be quite honest! I think new things a) make me happy and b) get me in the wanting to learn way of thinking... if that makes any sense?
I bought all the essentials :) There's something so nice about new stationary; a 'fresh' notebook. I can't put my finger on what it is!

Summer's over, hello Autumn!

Everyone does a weekly Intsagram round up; I thought I'd do a summer round up, as it has definitely gone for good now, no crazy 'Indian summer' heat waves predicted this weekend. And sadly I don't have Instagram, as I don't have a phone that uses it,*sniff*
Here it is, my attempt at a round up. So from left to right, on each row:-
Malmo(Sweden), Nyhavn in Copenhagen, Malmo, my garden in the sun, Chameleon in a pet store, my tattoo-still fresh!, Grilled Chicken with mustard sauce, nails from a post, Meaty tapas, Sagrada Familia-Barcelona, Sitges-Spain, Freddie in the garden, Olympic stadium, Portsmouth, The HMS Warrior in Portsmouth docklands.
That was my summer, I went away a few times, it doesn't feel like nearly enough! I ate too much, and drank too much- sometimes not in a good way! (1. drank too much and fell asleep in a cinema-I had paid for the film though, not drunkenly wandered in! 2. Recently drank far too many fruity daiquiris and tested my regurgitating abilities :s) I saw films and listened to music and had road trips in the sun; I saw friends and family and the Olympics and even got a (Very) slight suntan! 

I wish I could have spent the summer in a hot country, on the beach everyday; I wish I could have gone to festivals and danced the night away in wellies and flower headbands- but hopefully next summer? Especially what with Glasto tickets coming up soon!
What did you do over the summer? What do you wish you'd done? And are you planning for next summer already, or are you looking forward to winter?  Winter is coming! (small GOT reference)

I'll leave you with a pic I took of two terrapins when I was in Portsmouth- they were best buddies!

Fashion vouchers challenge: Boohoo

1)  Una Pu Sleeve Denim jacket £25
2) Linny Sleeveless Peter Pan collar Tunic Dress £15
Valerie Black Peeptoe Stud &Cutwork Slingback Clog Cone Heel £8(sale)
I decided to enter the Fashion Vouchers £50 Boohoo challenge. Which sees bloggers attempting to put together an outfit for £50 or under, using no discount codes. This is to celebrate Boohoo making it onto their Top 10 Fashion Money Saving Websites list...
Right so for the challenge I decided to go with the popular Leather/PU sleeved jacket, but I didn't want to go military so went for denim, £25.
Which I thought then complimented the shift style of the striped Peter pan collar dress £15- as I thought these together could work for a daytime (with tights and flats) or night time look. I went with Night time and included these Slingback clog heels £8
All this together added up to £48 so just under. If I could have completed this look with some black tights or leggings I would have but there wasn't enough :(

On another note, Boohoo have just joined UNIDAYS, and have a 20% discount for a limited time only- so if you are a student make sure you are registered :)
Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed this post.
P.s also massive thanks for Jess at @rafflesbizarre and rafflesbizarre blog for doing my new blog header, was getting bored of the old one!

Travel Destinations: Barcelona

Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to be in Barcelona; what I wouldn't give to go back there now with this cold weather!
Barcelona is Spain's second largest city and the capital of Catalonia( and the largest city). They speak Catalan, a different language altogether to Spanish. And Barcelona has 3 airports serving it; El Prat, the city's airport, Gerona about 40 minutes from Barcelona and Reus- the same. It is very easy to get the train from El Prat to Barcelona central (which I did) and takes about 20 minutes. There is so much to see and do in the city, I just didn't have time to do it all, unfortunately.

A Day at the Paralympics: Friday 7th

Yesterday I had the chance to go to the Paralympic Games at Olympic park, because of a spare ticket being free.. long story.
Anyway, I wasn't into the hype of the Paralympics as much as the Olympics but though I should see the park, as I'll never see it like that ever again; The day was sooo hot, and so many people were there. The Megastore stressed me out (it was an effort working your way around people (even the keyring stand was 4 man deep!) and all food and drink was over priced. But hey ho, rant over! The Javellin train from Kings Cross to Stratford International was a dream though!

A little trip to Sephora

So when I was in Copenhagen, 3 weeks ago now, I popped into a Sephora that opened this May, that they happen to have on the main shopping street, Strøget (I mentioned in this post here...)
Well it was huge! It was part of their main store Illum, but the Sephora took up so much space. It was my first time in one, and I couldn't quite believe the amount of beauty products there are in the world!

Louise Gray for Topshop

Last week, Topshop bought out their newest collaboration- with Louise Gray. 'One of the most vibrant and innovative designers to grace the London fashion scene... Think Bold, think bright, think imaginative beyond belief', are what Topshop describes Louise Gray as. Which I would say is quite fair. I was only ably to afford items from the make up collection, unfortunately, as the clothes priced at £130 plus were a bit out of my price range! The lipsticks weren't really my sort of colour so I plumped for two of the polishes; Pinch Punch & Junk Yard.

Something a bit different.... Soup

Pea and Mint soup to be exact. I've been wanting to include recipes/ food posts on the blog for a while now, but just haven't got around to it. But today that has changed!
I love pea and mint soup for 3 reasons; 1) it's relatively cheap to make 2) It's really quick and easy to make and 3) it has no 'carbs' or anything like that in and you can easily add other ingredients if you want to. (4- it tastes nice!)
All you need is: A bag of frozen (not tinned!) Garden peas, A bunch of fresh mint, 1 chopped onion, a swig of olive oil, some other herbs such as basil/ oregano and salt/pepper to season, 1-2 jugs of stock (stock cube+water) and 1 clove of garlic.

Travel destinations: Copenhagen

I was there only last weekend, and I really really like it. I've been going regularly- although not the past 5 or so years- since I was a child as some of my family are in Malmö, and Copenhagen is only a short train ride away.
It is expensive, like most of Scandinavia, but like most places if you know where not to go, it doesn't seem so bad. The currency is Danish Krone and roughly is DKK 9.5 to £1.

Addicted to.. 'Man vs. food'

Life update: tattoo

Right so those of you who have been reading this blog for a while, might remember about two months ago I wrote a post about tattoos (Right here) and how much I wanted one and I included all those that gave me inspiration...
Well about three weeks ago I actually went and got one. This isn't a boasting or bragging kind of thing, I just thought it might be interesting for to some of you. I love reading about other people's tattoo and seeing them.

Mine is on my left foot, and it's a swallow which I came up with myself and then the tattooist resized it. It's just black and shaded with the tiniest amount of white; I'm really like it. It's nearly all healed so I thought I'd show you.

Love for my...New MUA products

Just a short, picture heavy post today: yesterday I went a little bit mad in Superdrug, I went in to a conditioner. I cam away with 4 new MUA purchases which altogether totalled £7.50! Bargain! :)
Here they are and as it's such a lovely day for once, they're photographed outside!:

Travel Destinations: Sydney

Sydney is probably the most famous city in Australia, often mistaken for the capital. It's on the east coast, in New South Wales, home to approx 4.6 million and the site of the first British colony. It's considered by other Australians as the hedonistic party city. The currency is Australian dollars.

Not another.. Beauty Box post?

Hey guys, this weeks been a bit busier than others. I've decided to get fit(finally!), so am contemplating joining a gym that I've visited with my friend twice. I've also been busy applying for quite a few jobs as I'm poor! And yesterday I was in London, soaking up the Olympics atmosphere. Our group of friends were hanging out in Kings Cross (not the station!) all day, and found ourselves at the Big Chill house and on the Roof Terrace, it was lovely.
Ok enough rambles; I got my August Shesaidbeauty box on Tuesday, which was still July? So very early! It was hit and miss, some things I really loved and was happy to receive, and one I really didn't get why it was included?

Addicted to... Etat Pur

After receiving the Etat Pur Purifying face mask in my July Joliebox and loving it so much I decided to visit the website and buy some more! I've heard really good things about the brand, which was from the man who also created Bioderma and Institut Esthederm. It's a French brand which utilises 'Pure Actives' and 'Biometric skincare products' to create a unique personalized service; their A+B concept.
