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. IMG_0171 (2)

What’s in My Bag: Party

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.

DSC_0009

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.

DSC_0024

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.

Red Pea Coat

DSCN1393

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.DSCN1392 DSCN1391

The knitted texture kept me warm on my beach walk with Stacey. DSCN1394

Double Denim

DSCN1388

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!

DSCN1384

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. 😉

Vintage Daisy Dress

DSCN1374 DSCN1375 DSCN1376 DSCN1378 DSCN1350 DSCN1351 DSCN1352

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 Winter Wonderland

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. DSCN1339 DSCN1341DSCN1335-001

 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.

DSCN1326

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.DSCN1327

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.

DSCN1329

Washed down with Yobu’s mango bubble tea with lychee balls.

DSCN1330 DSCN1331 DSCN1333 DSCN1340

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.

Oranges

DSCN0421-001I 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!!

A Million Shades of Blue

DSCN0473Having 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 😉

DSCN0470My mum joked at how many different shades of blue I was wearing, what can I say I love blue.

The Hunter

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.DSCN0327I 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.

Flora and Fauna

DSCN0275

I love wearing white shirts, but can i get a photo of them with out them looking like a ghost. No, no I can’t!

Any was I decided to be confident today and wear shorts in public, I’m a very conscious person and over thing everything, showing off a feature of my body that i’m not totally comfortable with is very daunting. DSCN0277Having not been blessed in the butt department and given more them my share in legs, shorts always fit a little oddly, but I LOVE this little blue number. The cheapest pair of shorts in the whole world.
