Merry Christmas everyone :)

I'm not hungover... yay!! Hope everyone is having a wonderful day, I've only just opened my presents and dinner is not till later than normal (but just had a lovely bacon sandwich using the bacon that has been cooking on top of the turkey all morning.. YUM) 

Shirt: Topshop
Trousers: H&M
Necklace: Young Forever

This is what I wore out last night, went to the local Weatherspoons and it was rammed with people who I haven't seen in forever.. That's what I love about Christmas time, you just seem to catch up with everyone, people who have moved away for uni, work etc.. and people who only show they're faces on special occasions. Where I live, for some reason everyone just all gathers in this one place on Christmas eve, it's always an awesome laugh :) 

Hope everyone had what they wanted for Christmas.. I did :)

Christmas Treats.. to myself :)

My routine this month was kind of 'one for you one for me.' So every present I bought for someone, I also bought one for myself :) 

First up is a little stocking filler for myself...

Super cute in every way shape and form! 

I have been lusting after these gorgeous shoes ever since I first seen them grace the 'New in' pages of Topshop... but I have only just got my little mitts on them :) Possibly the comfiest shoes ever, they actually feel like slippers!

Come across this shirt, added it to my basket, entered my card details and bought it without ANY hesitation whatsoever. Literally haven't taken it off since I've bought it! In LOVE!

Topshop via Ebay
Needed a fur coat... Knew this was 'the one' but sold out everywhere, ended up paying Waaaay too much for it on Ebay, but don't regret it coz I absolutely love it! 

Other un-photographed purchases are THESE gorgeous shorts from MOTEL. THESE jeans from the Miss Selfridge sale, and a shed load of stuff from the cheapest online jewellery store EVER, Young Forever! (check it out). 

By the way.. anyone else really disappointed with the sales so far? River Island had loads of gorgeous things this season, but yet the sale was shit.. Topshop had a few nice things, especially shoes, but nout special. Asos was OK, but again not amazing! I had my credit card at the ready this morning but spent just £20! Oh well... least I'm saving a bit of money! 

You all exited for Christmas? I'm getting super exited now.. even just for a day off to relax! I can't wait for Christmas eve to go get extremely  merry in town with the girls and I'm just exited to wear some nice clothes instead of a uniform and actually have a social life as mine has gone to pot lately. Mega mega exited to paint my nails all christmasy haha! I'm doing it tomorrow... there will be a picture as long as they turn out good; I'm out of practice now lol! 

Anyway.. feel like I have loads to talk about, coz haven't blogged in what feels like FOREVER! but I'm gonna bore you all, so I'll love you an leave you!

Christmas Wish List

<a href="http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/3095289/the-deer-head?claim=kkyq9hx64qj">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

I was going to attempt to make a gift guide for you to help with your shopping, but then I realised I'm shit at buying presents lol! So I've rustled up my wishlist.. most of it I won't be getting on the big day, but will possibly buy with my Christmas moneyyys :D 

I've featured the gorgeous Paw top from Topshop on this blog before and cannot get it out of my head! Dying for a bobble hat, and love the colour and style of this Topshop one! I think a DSLR camera is on every bloggers wishlist.. I've asked my parents for one for Christmas, but really doubt they will buy one for me! 

Desperate for a new purse and this Zadig et Voltaire one would be perfect for me.. not the friendliest price mind! The Urban Outfitters belt would be a nice alternative to the Moschino belt that I will forever lust after! Finally the Dr Martens.. I've wanted them for years and have had countless pairs when I was a little Lowri... They will go with any outfit from a pretty dress to a jeans and tee ensemble! 

I've just treated myself to another item on my wishlist THIS amazing leopard print coat from Topshop.. paid way over the odds for it on Ebay, but ah well, I wanted it.. lost a few I had bidded on as refused to pay over £80, then decided I wanted it enough to pay whatever it took to get my hands on it lol!! Hope the seller manages to post this before Christmas! Now, gonna try and make my mother give me the money for it as a Christmas prezzy lol.. wish me luck! 

Hope everyone has a lovely Christmas.. I have a VERY busy week in work next week, Oh the joys of working in retail at this amazing time of year.. So don't know when I'll next have a blog post for you! Probably Christmas day to show you all my awesome presents! 

P.s 250 followers.. Oh yeaaaaa :D Thank you all!!

 An all black outfit is my favourite outfit ever! Black can be sexy, sophisticated or fun.. you can dress it in absolutely any way! 

My favourite 'trends' are rock 'n' roll and gothic inspired which means lots of black; although now and again I will go crazy over a certain unrelated trend, like this year it was bohemian with lots of brown/tans fringing etc, but for some reason I will always go back to an all black obsession! 

Lipstick: Topshop Rio Rio
Shirt: Asos
Leather bralet: Topshop
Shorts: River Island
Tights: Henry Holland
By the way... I know my lipstick is all over the place, I applied without a mirror (believe it or not there is NO mirrors in my bedroom, crazy!! ) then took pictures lol!!! I'm such an idiot, but don't worry I did tidy it up before I actually left the house! 

I'm starting to look like a real goth with my all black outfits, my super 'I say dark brown others say black' hair, big thick black brows and red lipstick.. but I am loving it :) who needs colour anyway? Sooo, I wore this out  for my friends birthday last night, we went to Cardiff Bay and ate some lovely Italian food in Signor Valentino and had a lush time :) 

I actually sold this bralet on ebay a few weeks ago, but the buyer didn't pay for ages, and after countless emails without any reply I opened up a dispute (thinking they wouldn't pay, but wanted my fee's back), then they actually paid... but I was angry at them and didn't really need the money anymore, so I refunded them and kept it for myself.. HA!! bad Ebayer? 

That's all from me anyway, first post of December :) Soooo Can't wait for Christmas!

November... Monthly Round up #6

Favourite Outfit

Definitely my most recent outfit post... read all about it here 

Favourite Fashion Buy

River Island

The first time I wore it I wasn't that impressed, but now I absolutely love it.. it's so easy to wear and quick to throw on and look decent :) 
Favourite Beauty Buy
Believe it or not, this is the ONLY beauty related thing I have bought this month, therefore it is both my favourite and my least favourite lol! 
My mini review... I only really wanted it for the Hoola, as I couldn't afford a full one. Wish I splashed out on the hoola, as the size of the products are pathetic; but at the same time, it is only £9, so good if your looking for a 'sample' of the bigger products before splashing out; it is kinda worth the money then. Although, for some reason as they're so small they don't seem to work as well as the actual big products as they become hard to apply as my brushes don't fit in them lol! But hoola is prob one of my favourite beauty products ever!! 
Favourite Nails
I literally haven't painted my nails all month, and I'm so depressed about it lol! I miss my lovely nail art!! So I shall show you what is top of my 'nail art to do' list 
I think these are absolutely gorgeous and so unique! 
Biggest Splurge
Hmm... My vintage tweed blazer that I have yet to show you! It wasn't expensive, but was probably the most expensive thing I have bought this month. Keep an eye out for an upcoming post about it, coz I love it, but not sure it suits me (it's a little too big for me), so want everyone's advise :) 
Best Bargain
River Island
I had this £60 pound dress for £15... read about it here :) 

Biggest Lust

I reaaaaaally want some creepers!!!! 

Plan on Buying
For once in my life.. I have nothing that I HAVE to have... It's payday tomorrow, and I have no idea what I'm going to buy! Probably do an eBay spree though! 
Favourite Picture

Just me and my friend on a night out :) in ladybird Cardiff!  
I've managed to get all my uni work done.. yay!! 
Looking Forward to

All the Christmas festivities starting with works Christmas party on Saturday! I'm actually looking forward to having enough money to buy people decent presents! Love December!!! :D 

Have a brilliant December everybody.. I'm sure you all will!! 

Big thank you and hello to all my new followers.. and of course the regulars :)

Ways to wear: Zebra Jeans

Loved these jeans when they first popped into Topshop... they sold out, and then I got over them. But now they're back :D Although in different colours, so don't know if I'll actually be purchasing because I think I preferred good olde black and white! 


These are black and pink... I hate pink. Thought they were an off white, but nope; pink! But I absolutely adore this outfit.. I really want that sweater and the bag oh and the shoes!! Everything! I think this look is for someone who is just to cool for school! lol!  


Now, I much prefer these jeans, the colour is fab (still not better than the white though) This outfit is has a gothic edge which I absoluetly adore, I am a Goth at heart I think. Black is my ultimate favourite colour! This look could be worn day or night just swap the accessories and shoes 

Everything featured is Topshop!
A very classy look if I do say so myself.. I can imagine this is the type of outfit that would turn a few heads, although simple it is gorgeous! The necklace is DIVINE and would add a massive element of glamour! 

So to buy or not to buy.. that is the question? 
I think I'll have to go try them on :) 

How are you all? I still feel a little out of the blogging loop lately, but I've been a lot more involved this last week I think! :) Yay for getting a routine and not feeling stupidly rushed off my feet! 

In other news, I have been e-mailing The Harley Street Smile Clinic in regards to full smile make-over. I think teeth are a really important feature, and mine just aren't up to scratch in my eyes. I'm the type of girl that gets an idea in my head, then becomes obsessed with it and has to do it. So this smile make-over thing is just another one of them lol! But yea, no actual plans have been made yet, but I'm hoping to go ahead with it soon after Christmas... I'll be sure to keep you all informed! 

Hope you've all had a good weekend :) 

20 November 2011

Snake Leather Fur and Studs

Technically this should be one of my favourite outfits EVER... It involves some of my favourite things... animal print, leather, fur and studs :) 

Trousers: H&M Shirt: New Look. (DIY stud collar) Fur Stole: H&M 

I do love this outfit.. it is ME all over! I wore this the other night to go out for an Indian Meal.. it was bloody lovely!! About half hour before we left I decided to add a few studs to the collar, as the top was lacking in something! You can't really see on the picture, but it looks pretty cool! Oh and the fur stole is probably one of the best things I've bought all year, as well as the leather trousers.. apart from the fly doesn't seem to stay up too well.. I was definitely flying low all night. Cringe! 

I'm thinking about getting extensions.. my hair has got to a stage where it seems to have stopped growing. Well it is definitley growing as my roots are coming through, but it is probably so damaged that my split ends are just stopping any length. I seem to think that if I have extensions I will notice the growth more lol! I'm desperate for long hair so think I may treat myself before Christmas! The whole Ombre thing has gone out the window, just seems like way to much effort, I have minimal blonde on the ends, but I just cba to add to it, think I'm over my obsession now! 

I actually can't believe how close we are to Christmas... it's actually scary how quick this year has gone! I haven't even managed a proper wish list yet.. when I do write one, I'll be sure to blog about it :D 

Chow for now :) 

Party like it's 1999

Ah, two outfit posts in one week, aren't you a lucky lot :) haha! 

Dress: River Island
Took these pictures in about 2 minutes, so they aren't the best lol! AND no idea when my my knees got fat haha! 

Wore this last night for my friends 20th birthday :) Such a fab night.. If any of you ever go to Cardiff for a night out you must definitely go to Retro's. It's such an amazing place... the music is mainly 90's stuff, which is awesome and gives you such a nostalgic feeling! We definitely partied like it was 1999! 

So about my outfit.. I bought this dress for an absolute bargain price (read the post on it here) but it is literally a one night out only dress... everywhere I went I left a trail of sequins behind.. I would never have paid the full £60 for this! 
I love it on, even though it doesn't picture very well at all! I kinda felt like I was wearing a nighty though lol and I wish it was I tiny but more fitted.. to show of my curves and all that jazz haha, na it kinda just falls over my waist when I would rather it clinged a bit more! 

My brother is treating the family to an Indian meal tonight (Groupon deal obviously haha) so well exited for that!! 

Hope everyone's weekend was as good as mine :) 

ps: just a few hours left on my Ebay things: Take a look HERE :) 

16 November 2011


You know when you look forward to wearing an outfit so much... and then you put it on, look in the mirror and  it is just nothing special... nothing like you imagined it would be.. Well, that is today's outfit! 

Skirt: primark. Top: River Island

The top doesn't fit that well, and the skirt is nicer off than on.. Not a horrible outfit, just not as special as I thought it would be...
I wore this out for a meal for my friends birthday last night, we went to T.G.I Firday's and it was quite nice.. I think I picked the wrong food though; hate eating at new places, it always takes me so long to decide what I want, and when I get it I wish I had something else! I like going to my regular places where I know what I'm eating without looking at the menu.. Yes, I'm such an adventurous person haha! 

Oh actually, talking of adventure.. some people in work are organising a sky dive for charity.. I'm sooo going to do it :D

I feel a bit out of the loop in the blogging world lately.. I'm not commenting and reading blogs as avidly as i once did, and I'm not blogging as much as I would like to! Quite busy at the moment, what with a full time job, as well as a full time uni course (and two essay's that have yet to be started that are due in next week). It's funny that you can miss a little 'online community' so much! 

Last thing for today... check out my clothes on Ebay HERE :) 

7 November 2011

My lucky shopping trip!

Hey guys! Was meant to be going on a health and safety course today (yawn) but it was cancelled (annoying as I got up at 6am) so I thought I would use my spare day and actually blog about something! I went shopping yesterday so thought I'd show you what I've bought... It was definitely my lucky day!

Firstly up is my bargain of the century! 
River Island
I've taken the stock photo as I cannot get a decent picture of this dress, annoyed though as the dress is actually a lot nicer in real life than on the website! But anyway.. the price is £60.. Definitely not a bargain I hear you say! Well... there is about literally 4 sequins missing off the bottom of the dress so it was marked up as £10!!!! Well I ended up having it for £15.. but seriously that can't have been the right price.. When I seen the £10 price tag I thought the dress must have some serious sequins missing.. but no literally about 4! I couldn't even find the missing sequins at first! My luck was most definitely in yesterday! That's my dress sorted for my friends birthday night out! Oh don't you just love human error! 

My luck didn't just end there...

I'm sure you have all seen this Primark skirt that has taken the blogging world by storm? Well I have wanted it ever since I set my eyes on it, but it has been sold out every time I have been to Primark! Well yesterday my luck changed... sitting amongst all the coats was this skirt.. it was the only one in the whole shop and it was MY SIZE!! I was beyond chuffed! Can't wait to wear this little ensemble. The gorgeous top is from River Island! 

My other Primark buys were... 

The shoes look awesome on.. they're have a very slight 'creeper' style which I love as I can't afford proper creepers just yet! Oh and I'm obsessed with patterned/suspender tights so I bought three pairs :D 

Im awaiting on a few items in the post, including a vintage tweed blazer (woohoo) I'll be sure to show you when they all arrive :)

October... Monthly Round up #5

I say this every month... but seriously, these round up's come around WAY.TOO.QUICKLY!!

Favourite Outfit

Loved this monochrome outfit! See my post here 

Favourite Fashion Buy

My gorgeous Cardigan... which I adore more than anything else I own at the moment.. Literally haven't taken it off!! See the post here :) 

Favourite Beauty Buy

I haven't bought anything beauty wise... WOW!! But I do plan on buying some 'Bioglo' Products! They're not very well known in the UK.. but my friend has been using some of the products and they look amazing.. so I'm gonna splurge I think! 

Favourite Nails

Definitely my Red, White and Black Aztec beauties! See the post here :)  I haven't painted my nails in about 2 weeks :( My job wont allow me to wear nail varnish, and now I'm working 30 hours I find it pointless painting my nails for 1 day then taking it off for work the next! Sucks though... Having MAJOR withdrawal symptoms! Think I'm gona try some 'firework' nails for Bonfire Night.. (Didn't even get to experiment with Halloween Nails :( )

Biggest Splurge

My gorgeous aztec cardigan shown above was also my biggest splurge.. It was £50 (I really couldn't afford that at the time lol)

Best Bargain
I bought this fur stole from H&M and am totally in love with it... you put it around anything and it makes it more fashionable!! It's £12.99.. but I had a few discount codes and ended up spending like £5... The H&M delivery service were super quick too!! I was shocked!

Biggest Lust

I NEED a Tweed blazer! None of these are perfect.. I fount the perfect one on ebay.. but stupid idiotic me forgot to bid, was so so angry at myself :( I dont want such a fitted one... Kinda want it to be slightly oversized!

Plan on Buying 

If you take a look at my last post, I dressed this top up in 3 different ways.. and I really need this top now! Friday it will be mine!! Oh and if you do look at my last post.. I need the Topshop skirt in Look 1.. Its.Sold.Out. Im devastated :( lol!

Favourite Picture
Stole this picture off Rosie (A pocketful of Rosie)
This lovely picture is from the South Wales Blogger Meet.. We are in O'Neils Cardiff and had the most delicious buffet ever!!! It was free as well, always a bonus! (Thank you Chantelle). Oh and I really should mention how amazing the sausages were... Every other post about the meet up has mentioned the sausages, so I really must follow the lead haha! But seriously they were beyond tasty! Had an awesome day at the meet up :D 

I am now checkout supervisor in Morrisons! Kind of bitter sweet really, as I have more hour = less time to blog! I'm sure when I get into a routine I'll be blogging back to the way I used to, but atm I'm struggling to fit it in! Outfit posts seem impossible atm! I am still in Uni too.. so I really have no time lol!!

29 October 2011

Ways to wear...

Hi Guys.. I've been lacking on the ol' blogging front lately.. My week has consisted of working and sleeping! The main thing that sucks is I'm going from work straight to Uni or from Uni straight to work.. so have literally no time for outfit posts! I'm hoping to do one today though as I have a day off :D

I've been dying to blog all week, but have been lacking in inspiration and to be honest I just couldn't keep my eyes open for long enough to come up with something thats worth blogging about! 

I've fallen in love with the most simple Tee from River Island.. and before I commit to buying online I normally try and make a few possible outfits on polyvore to see if I really need any more new clothes! I've come to the conclusion that on payday I shall be buying this top (even though I could probably DIY my own)

Blazer: Topshop. Top: River Island. Hat: ASOS. Tights: Topshop
Shoes: Topshop

You don't believe how in love with this look I am.. I literally need every item!! The skirt is unbelievably gorgeous... I will hopefully be buying this too!! I want to be wearing this right now!! I think this look could be worn casually, or even to wear somewhere you need to dress smarter. 


Coat: Topshop. Top: River Island. Jeans: River Island. Hat: H&M. Boots: River Island.
Ok.. I want everything in this look too.. Arghh I regret doing this.. gonna be skint come payday haha! This is like the perfect Autumn/Winter outfit.. just add some leather gloves! 

Earrings/Ring: Regal Rose. Top: River Island. Shoes: River Island. Skirt: River Island. Tights: Henry Holland. 

This is a night out look that I'm sooo in love with! I think if you wore this on a night out you would really stand out, as it's not your typical night out outfit! This outfit is rock chick with a cool edge... I think it screams awesome without too much effort! 


I have been chosen as one of 15 finalists for the 'Pure British Style' Sarenza blogging competition. My post is here
So now here's where you lot come in.. If I win one of my readers gets to win all the shoes that I have featured in the post!!!

Designer or High street...

 I'm gonna go all Gok Wan on you today!... Can you all tell which is the 'Look for MORE' or the 'Look for LESS'?
I think this will be easy for most of you as you will recognise high street items easily, especially if you shop as much as I do! 

Look for More = £5425 (wow)
Look for Less = £361.99


Which look do you prefer?

Personally... I like elements of both looks. I'd wear the trousers, hat and ring from Look 1 and the shirt and coat from look 2... and I'll take both pairs of shoes please :)

My point is... Is there really that much difference between designer and high street?
In my eyes the answer is NOT REALLY!
Obviously a designer item will last you much, much longer (probably longer than it will actually be in fashion) Designer items have special little details that are absent in the majority of high street clothes. The touch, cut and shape of a designer item will generally be better than that of a high street item. Designer items are investments.. If I were to splash out on a designer piece, I would make sure that it was something classic and not something 'on trend' something that will never ever date.. such as a black blazer.
On the other hand, why buy designer when you can get much much more for your money on the high street. You can even invest in high end high street items in places such as All Saints and Reiss. Shops like All Saints really match the quality and special details found in designer items.

So.. If I were to win the lottery would I loyally stick with the High Street or would I move designer?
Answer: I'd shop in both. Both offer different things! I'd buy what I really like, and it wouldn't matter what it said on the label!
Gok always says it doesn't matter about how much money you have... You can look good on a £50 budget or on a £50,000 budget! I think he's totally spot on! It really bugs me when people can't dress tidy (not fashionable, just tidy) when Primark is cheap and has lovely clothes!


19 October 2011

Aztec Cardigan

From now on my outfits will mainly consist of a big fat green padded jacket, a white with green check shirt complete with a cravat thingy (dont think thats what they're called... like a neck tie) black trousers and black shoes: The Morrisons Uniform! Don't know if any of you have seen it, but it is truly horrid! That's what I actually wore the majority of yesterday.. but for a little while I did go to uni and wore my new gorgeous cardigan...  

Cardigan: Urban Outfitters
Top: River Island
Jeans: tesco

I sometimes make an effort to dress nicely for uni, other times I just chuck any old thing on.. like todays outfit... But with a cardi like this you can still be stylish, yet comfy and not to 'over done!' Also loving my wine jeans... which are a massive steal at £16! 

I've bought myself a fur stole from H&M (which seems to be the new blogger favourite) and I cannot wait to  receive it and wear it, think it will look awesome over this cardi! Although with H&M's unreliable online service God knows when I'll actually get it! 

Just want to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone as I have reached 200 GFC followers.. which is absolutely amazing :D you've all made me a very happy lil lady :) 

That's all I have to say today me thinks!
