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.
SS/16 trends are in and I’m fully behind most of them ( well all of them really) but I’m not convinced by the slip dress. Rochas and Emilio Pucci’s slips were so bang on with my style. There are a few body types that would look amazing in the slip. But on my body taking into account my stature ( hello 5 10!) and that I’m a smaller waist them my hips, it would mean that the slip dress would sit or cling to this area. I would definitely find it really hard to not think I was wearing a nightie overtime I wore it. Also blush is meant to be huge this season, gorgeous grey toned pinks and peaches are going to be huge in my wardrobe.
The slip dress really follows the whole under wear as outer wear, but maybe a little to much. Here is how I styled this trend.
No slip dress for me, however i still keep on trend with this style by making a blush pink top.
As of Wednesday i’m now 22, it’ been the most amazing 21 years and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
I spend the afternoon in class h, which was great because I got to see your friends.
I love this outfit because it incorporates all the things I love to wear, grey, denim and a leather jacket. Muted grey tones are perfect for me in winter. Having pretty much no tan i’ve found it suites my skin tone much better, and of course my favourite popcorn necklace.
I’ve been wanting to wear these trousers all through autumn and into winter, but never found the perfect way to stay warm and still look good. I think I’ve found it, flowing layers, and knits.
Pairing this long cardigan with these trousers was such a happy accident. The cardigan is super light weight yet I didn’t feel cold taking photos in the wind ( see all photos above of me not managing the wind) Ofcourse I had to glam it up a little with some rose lips and patent nude heels.
This winter I think I’m the busiest I’ve even been with work, college and parties all over December. One of my favourite looks to meet the girlies in is this little skirt and these boots. I’ve mentioned these boots a while ago and I can’t stop loving them. But favourite part of this outfit is definitely this Oasis sparkly top, I love the cowl neck back and the bar across the back. it’s such a great Christmas piece that I’ve been longing to wear. I bought the shirt at last years Clothes Show live ( I’m going to this years Clothes Show!) You could wear this Christmas day and eat everything on the table and still look great.
I think I’ve found the perfect black jumper for winter! (I know that’s a big statement) The fit is perfect, it’s warm ( no need to layer up) the little slits al the sides add a little detail the high neck. There is no frills to this jumper, it does it’s job and it does it every well. I love pairing it with a bright shirt to make a statement.
I think this is my ‘BBQ At a Friends’ uniform, no that I go to friends BBQ’s all the time. But if I did.
Any opportunity to wear heels and statement earrings. I’ve been lusting over tassel earrings for ages, after seeing other bloggers rock them, I took the plunge with these yellow beaded ones.
I want the pattern of this top on everything!! A loose cami top with fitted jeans are a staple for every girl, right? New look are really my favourite place to get shoes, where else can you buy affordable, brown suede, gladiator wedges. I mean really they are so on point with their shoes. Also couldn’t resist these flowers, they look really cute around a messy bun.
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!!
