One trend that I have never really liked was the culotte. It brings me back to my childhood of wearing skorts. Basically I don’t see the point of them.
Having bigger hips then my waist makes culottes look so frumpy. It really accentuates my hips and I think I look wider then I actually am. But I would have never have known this if I hadn’t tried them out.
I now know that they are not my style and I will never wear them again like this. TBH I look like a balloon!! Thank goodness these are my grandma’s and she can for sure have them back.
This is where I shot my outfit of the day. I mean how beautiful is it.

Mini dresses are my go to piece to wear when having an evening out. Is there any better opportunity to show off as much leg as you can.
I wore this to watch Buffalo Go play at Sound Circus in Bournemouth.

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?

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.

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.
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.

I’m off to see Deadpool now so I’ll catch you later 😉
love Amelia, XO!
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.

Chinese new year is just around the corner and Bournemouth are in full celebration mode. Boscombe have put on Chinese winter wonderland. I headed over to sample some delicious food. There were events going on over both days but we got completely distracted by the food stalls.
Chinese pork bun/Cha siu bao which was so delicious the puffy bun was light and the perfect bed for the sweet hot barbecue pork inside.
I don’t remember what this is called but let me tell you it was so so delicious. Rise, boiled egg, star anise, beef. My little Nephew who’s a fussy eater loved this dish so much i couldn’t feed him fast enough.
These was a sort of asian omelette with squid in i think, coated in a generous amount of spice.
Followed very quickly by Korean glass noodles that weren’t my favourite but mum loved them. They were such a success that I wasn’t quick enough to get a snap of them.
Washed down with Yobu’s mango bubble tea with lychee balls.
None of us had ever had bubble tea before, now we are all huge fans. Some enjoyed it way more then others. Little man loved the lychee balls in the tea that you chew when you drink. All the food venders are restaurant owners in and around Bournemouth.
Don’t forget that Chinese new year is on 8th February and I hope you are all going to celebrate in some way.

I love bright colours but never really liked to wear bright orange, that all changed when I saw these Topshop flats the other day. I posted a picture of me trying on the blue ones maybe 6 months ago, on Instagram, but never bought them. I wasn’t going to miss them second time around. They were in the sale too!!

have a lovely day, Amelia XO.
Having a day off from work meant I got to spend some quality time with my mum walking around Poole Park, we decided to take ol’ Pip ( our family dog, who is super old and can’t go for long walks anymore) we grabbed a coffee and chatted.
This sailor top is so comfortable and perfect for me, as i live by the sea 😉
My mum joked at how many different shades of blue I was wearing, what can I say I love blue.

To say I’m a shoe addict would be an understatement, I bought a new pair of shoes today even. But I want to talk to you about these shoes.I love these Hunter sandals, the jell of the shoe moulds to you feet and sticks like glue, which makes them the easiest to walk in. Also the colour!! I love, love, love fuchsia, a huge pop of colour to my outfit. I really wanted to make my shoes the focus point of this look.
