I’m nosy, i’ll be the first to say it. I love looking though peoples stuff ( with their permission of course) and knowing what they have/ collect/ hoard. I feel that’s why I love bloggers so much I get to look through their stuff. It’s only fair to return the favour.
What’s in my bag: party edition.
This little box clutch was from TK-Maxx by Love Weaves. It’s really quite small and doesn’t fit any of my normal every day stuff inside.
When I got out I have to take only what I really really need while I’m out.
This Lulu Guinness coin purse is perfect. Fits all the cards you need in a little internal side pocket and enough room for your change.
After a few drinks that lipstick you spent ages getting right is going to come off. I always have lip products with me. I don’t like having my photo taken with half warn off lipstick, but who does?
Topshop – Beguiled
The tiniest of perfumes for the tiniest of bags. You always want to smell nice after dancing, especially is you dance like me you really need perfume with you on a night out.
YSL – Opium
Save room and weight and take the smaller brush/comb you can. This is the comb from Mulan when I had the Disney costume.
Finally and most obviously your phone.
Although I’m born in winter I do love the sun and am so excited that it’s now officially spring!! Things I’m looking forward to this spring are friend’s birthdays, my family’s birthdays, Easter, and putting away all my winter clothes and getting a tan.
Already spring has been amazing and we are on day 3. I cooked dinner for my bf for the first time and it went really well. I was so nervous about cooking for him. These are the Swarovski candles I lit at the table.
spring cleaning my room is something I’ve started to do. I’m no way near finished because lets face it, I’m a hoarder. But this little section looks pretty good so far. ( Kernow spa candle, Ikea beetle cushion, primary cushion, B&Q wall paper)
Getting some of my shades out.

I can’t wait to wear these sandals. I wore them least year. I put them away way to early. I’ve linked the white ones, they are just as gorgeous.
Thank you for reading. I hope you’re just as excited as I am about it being spring.
What are your plans for this summer?
Love, Amelia XO
I spent the weekend in London with family celebrating Georgie and Tom’s engagement by attending their masquerade ball.
The whole family really got onboard with the masquerade theme and I think we do scrub up pretty well. I found it really hard to dance with a mask on so took it off to party the night away. Not before stopping by the photo booth the pose.
Having danced to all the greats, it was only right to get some cake.
Before my feet fell off from dancing in my shoes all night, we jumped in a taxi and headed back to the hotel.

Can you wear two dresses in one outfit? the answer is yes, yes you can.
I’ve had this red dress in my wardrobe for about 4 months. I’ve never been able to find the right occasion or right accessorise to wear it. It’s a heavy suede and buttoned up it didn’t sit right on my frame. I wore it unbuttoned over my grey turtle ‘smock’ as a type of trench/short sleeved blazer. Adding my sky high boots that make me about 6ft 3 to complete the look.

Apparently having my photo taken makes me lose my mind. Below are the photos that my group too of me for photography class. We were meant to be trying out lightning for a portfolio portrait.
I’m sure that one of these photos looks like I’m about to say ‘have you had an accident at work?’. I’m getting quite busy with classes so there will most likely be less content then before.

I’m a coat hoarder, I collect coats like they are going out of fashion (I hope not). This Long Tall Sally coat I scored in a charity shop is my latest addition. A mix between a pea coat and a trench and a gorgeous red pink. Slightly pinched at the waist to give me a little shape and the long sleeves. Being a tall girl means that sleeves are always short on me. but Long Tall Sally cater to the tall girl which is perfect for me as I’m 5 10.
The knitted texture kept me warm on my beach walk with Stacey.

Double denim has come into my life and I want him (her) to stay. I’ve paired my Danish denim coat with my ripped knee grey jeans. The dark denims compliment each other with getting out of my comfort zone. Apparently curly hair is on trend so I left mine to air dry. I’m all for curly hair being on trend, it means I can stop damaging my locks so much trying to straighten it.
I spent the day over in Wimborne looking around the shops and stopped into Walford Mill. An old mill that’s been converted into an art gallery and gift shop. The last time I was here was to sketch the exhibit on show for my A-level exam, which was about 4 years ago!
This is the only photo I took inside, you’ll just have to see the creativity for yourself.
Walford have workshops and new exhibits on all the time, so get yourself down there and get cultured. 😉

I truly love vintage dresses. I snapped this daisy dream up for £2!!
There is nothing I want more from a dress then a great skirt, the movement when I walk is something I just don’t really find anymore in a day dress. Added addition of boots and leather jacket make the feminine dress much harder and more my style. My inspiration was Beyoncé when she stands on the cop car in her video for Formation.
I’ve been listening to it non stop.

If you have followed over from my old blog you would have already known that I can sew. I don’t have the time to do much now, which really disappoints me, but I’m making an effort to get back into it.
This is the dress I made for my final A-level exam a couple of years ago. I loved making this dress, spending 3 days in silence sewing and creating. It was total heaven!
My inspiration came from shattered and broken glass and mirrors. I used thick denim (now very crumpled from being stored away) as gagged pieces and the squares are the reflective pieces of glass and mirror. Each piece of denim and broken glass are completely different. Glass shatters in chaos
(deep I know)
I saw something similar to this on my first trip to Topshop in Oxford street. I couldn’t afford the top which was about £30 so with the help of my mum I made this instead. It’s a vintage scarf cut in half then sew together to make a wrap holter top. I’ve worn it so so much. It’s started to get faded but the sun now but it makes me love it all the more.
Thanks for taking a trip down memory lane with me, style posts will resume soon.
Love Amelia, XO.
