I’m all over the cacti trend, i have a few plants myself and a blanket, but I want to grow my collection. But for now I have this lovely t shirt. I wore it the opening of The Shed yesterday did you read the post? Heeled booties and my new cropped skinny jeans. Nothing else was really needed. I’ve worn this shirt so much, I’m in love.dsc_0140 Selfies were taken in the changing room at Re:So, they have beautiful clothes and their changing room decor is too cute.dsc_0148 dsc_0147

Re:So | The Shed Opening


Re:So is a store in the heart of Southampton that is run by student of Southampton Solent. They have just launched their new vintage section called The Shed.

The Southampton bloggers were treated to a cat walk preview of what would be in store and a first hand look at the collection before it goes live to the public tomorrow.

Vintage shopping is so exciting before there are nearly always gems that you can’t live without. If the cartoon jacket would have fit, it would have been mine ( it’s reversible to) I never see anything like that.

If you are ever in Southampton do go to Re:So it doesn’t house just vintage but independent designers.

The Stable | Cider and Pizza

I love restaurants that are home grown, where creating thoughtful menus of delicious food is a priority. The glorious people behind The Stable have done just that! I went with a group of friends and my boyfriend to try out their pizza and cider.


Stable are a Southern company from my childhood county of Dorset. Their Bournemouth location is a recent addition to the family and we sat at a long bench and chatted and eat and drank.

Their interior design is so Instagramable and still smells very new. Menus are on clip boards and you are given a number block when you order at the bar.


The cider taster board that my friends ordered. I’m a picky drinker so I don’t think I would have liked this but oh my, it looked good. I had the Devon red which was not as fruity as i would have lived but it was great.dsc_0031 dsc_0032

The guy and I ordered The Lamb Roast and The King Crabber and switched half way so we could try each others. The King Crabber was amazing, the crab meat was light yet tasty and then I squeezed some of the lemon on the pizza and it could have seen fireworks for how delicious it was. From a solid 8 to a full 10 out of 10.

I can’t wait to go to my Southampton The Stable now I’ve fallen in love. Also they have a pretty big vegan menu.

West Quay Student Sessions

I’m never a girl to pass up a chance to go shopping, especially if that includes discounts. West Quay hosted Student Sessions for all the Southampton students to shop with discounts, dance and win some prizes.

dsc_0003 dsc_0005 dsc_0007

I didn’t really do any damage, I went to my favourite shops as they were more quiet. Jack Wills were giving out free beer which was a great touch, and their staff were very nice. The gentleman that served me in Hotel Chocolat was an actual delight, very charming and friendly.

I wondered around the shops through hoards of people looking for bargains. I cheekily asked the very lovely sales assistant in Fat Face to take a photo of me. Which he kindly obliged.

I wore

SoundClash 2016

Sound Clash 2016 – Somerley House Hampshire

Soundclash is the last event of freshers, I’m not really into the type of music that was played. But it was the last event of freshers so it seamed right to send freshers off with a bang.

Considering I’m not really a fan of club music I did watch a few sets and really enjoy them. I enjoyed Marvin Humes, Artful Dodger. I really came to see the Wilkinson set and Pendulum do a DJ set, they were the highlights for me.

Room Tour: Uni 2016

It’s odd to see all the things that occupy your room at home, taking up space in an new place. They look familiar and sort of comforting yet out of place.


Welcome to my uni room. I’m in halls for first year, as are most people in the UK. I have 1 person to the left and the kitchen to the right. I think I have the room that gets all the noise. But I have made this little space my own and I’ve grown to love it.

The draws are to small the fit anything in. I’ve put pyjama in there for now.

I’ve the biggest wardrobe out of my friends. The size is perfect for me. Along the top i keep hair products, nails varnishes and handbags. On the rails are my clothes and my larger bags and the back. One the floor are my shoes and in the white bin is my laundry, and extras.

My hooks hold my coats  and my bag. They are together so i can grab them just before i leave for classes.

I’ve worked really hard on making this space my own, i think I’ve successfully put my stamp on the place. I love all the little cacti details and how everything has it’s space. I found out that not all the rooms here have wood floor, some have carpet which is harder to clean. I’ve very lucky to have a bigger room then the ‘better’ halls too.

Thank you for reading my latest post, I’ll try and get some outfit photos taken soon.

love Amelia XO


 The first week of freshers is almost over and i thought I’d give you a little insight into what it’s like. Now i’m 22 and live in a little beautiful village and I love living there, hearing horses and cows when i wake up, or a church bell, so serene.

The university I chose is in a city, I live in halls on the ground floor. Something for nothing it’s very noisy, i can hear people cough in the next room, hear airplanes, cars, people. It’s a whole world apart from what i’m used to.

With a city comes more people and more clubs and as a fresher it’s a free for all deciding on what club to go to for the night. Every club competes for people. Oceana held a foam party which I had to go to. Canons of foam are sprayed over the crown and you all dance and mosh together to loud thumping music, you do feel like you are underwater (in a storm).

img_3245 img_3244

Tips to survive a foam party.

Wear flat shoes (trainers) it’s so slippy

wear clothes you aren’t worried about getting ruined. Head to Primark and get some leggings and a top, that isn’t white.( I went to the new look sale and picked things up for £4)

girls your handbag should be cross body with a good closer. If you drop it in the foam it’s going to be hard to find it again.

take wipes with you for your makeup, because it will be down your face.

coat check a towel or something to get rid of the foam and something to keep you warm if you walk home with your friends. ( i did neither of these things and wish i had)

img_3253 img_3252

the visibility in the foam

img_3255 img_3260 img_3262 img_3264

the foam its hard to get off your legs and feet, your hair get soaked and feels slimy.

BUT!! it’s so much fun and I think i laughed from when the foam first started coming until I went to bed. You are with your friends having a laugh doing something you’ve never done before. But remember to not rub your eyes, they will sting!!

Thanks for reading, more freshers posts to follow.

Saying bye to my work friends started with dinner at Vesuvio, an Italian on the water front in Bournemouth. Last time i was there i had a pizza which was delicious but this time i had a lasagne dish. Which didn’t live up to how excited i was or how hungry i was. A little tasteless but their bellinis are lovely. And the lemon cheesecake was a smash hit.

A Brief History of Underwear

Undressed:  Brief History of Underwear.

The V&A host so many exhibitions that I’d like to see. I chatted to mum for about 2 seconds before we booked our train tickets and headed into the capital.


First stop was Harrods where we had brunch in the Godiva Chocolate cafeIMG_3147 IMG_3148 IMG_3151


the Godiva Milk Chocolate sin cake with a serving of hot pouring chocolate, a salmon and watercress sandwich. Both incredibly delicious and service was prompt considering we were 2nd through the door. IMG_3160

I love looking at and buying underwear and was so excited to go see the undressed exhibition. Of course we weren’t allowed to take photos, which was a real shame because I would have loved to have shown you some of my favourite pieces.

I wore

a vintage Jacket

Topshop – cami

New Look – Jeans ( turned up)

New Look – Tasseled loafers

Zandra Rhodes – bag

After we shopped around Liberty and looked at all their christmas Decorations then headed into Carnaby Street for dinner and a little shopping, before heading to the station to go home. We all fell asleep having officially conquered London for the day.

Dorset | The Libertine

The Libertine – Westbourne

Westbourne is on route to Bournemouth from Poole, complete with beautiful arcade.

I love getting to know new places to eat. I first went to The Libertine on a double date with my boyfriend and his friends. We went on a Monday and had the buy one get one free pizza. They have a pizza oven I believe. It’s all very Instagramable, the milk churn (?) stools.

While wondering the shops with mum and my cousin we couldn’t decide where to eat, looking in on many different cafes, eateries and restaurants. I suggested The Libertine, so we ordered and sat down.

Sharing the salami and peppadew pizza and the caramelised onion and garlic chicken pizza with sweet potato fries and salad. We agreed that it was totally delicious and well worth the wait ( 30 mins, not bothered)


My disheveled look (I had a cold)

Top – H&M

Bag – Hope bay

If you haven’t been over to Westbourne you should give it a try with lots of independent shops and a fair few charity shops to find a previously loved gem.

More posts coming your way, thanks for reading.
