Winter Ball

The Bournemouth Chamber of Trade and Commerce hosted a Winter Wonderland Ball. My parents have been to a few balls but this year i wanted to go, so we booked a table and started hunting for dresses.

The Winter Wonderland Ball was held at the Cumberland Hotel – Bournemouth

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.

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

Vesuvio

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.

Spring

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)

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?

Summer in Winter

DSCN1054 DSCN1055 DSCN1056 DSCN1057 DSCN1058 DSCN1061 DSCN1063 DSCN1066 DSCN1069 DSCN1072

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.

I wore

cardigan –  ( almost identical here)

trousers – Dorothy Perkins

heels – New Look – (old but love these)

bag – TK-Maxx

rings – Volcano

necklace – Topshop

You don’t have to put away your summer clothes, just integrate them into your winter wardrobe.

Thank you for reading, Amelia XO

Long Denim Jacket

I never knew Truro had boutique shops, independent stores and great places to eat. While I was over in Cornwall with family I was able to explore the city in more detail.

 While waiting for everyone to arrive for lunch I ducked into Magpie and Fox, a treasure trove of gorgeous pieces. All unique pieces for all over the world. I snagged this soft denim jacket in the sale and couldn’t be happier, the length reminds me of a pea coat and I love that.DSCN0507 DSCN0514 DSCN0517 DSCN0519-001 DSCN0490-002

Silver Boots

Silver boots should be worn at all times.

As soon as i saw these boots i know they had to be mine, even if they were a size smaller then what I usually go for. Didn’t hurt that they were just £1.
