June... Monthly Round up #1


I really want some kind of 'stability' on my blog... I like the idea of weekly round up's, but I honestly don't think I do enough interesting things, nor take enough pictures to be able to do them.. So I'm thinking a monthly round up with a bit of a twist...

My favourite outfit
Sadly I didn't take a 'proper' picture of my favourite outfit in June.. so here's a few 'snippits' of it..
Shirt: Never Fully Dressed
Shorts: Miss Selfridge
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell Lita
Jewellery: Topshop
I also wore cute cream lace ankle socks, which just peeped over the Lita's.. :)

My Favourite Buy
Definitely has to be my cardigan featured in 'this' post.. I haven't stopped wearing it!

Biggest Splurge
My favourite buy^^, it was £48.

Best Bargain 
Oh, a toughy.. It's a toss up between my Topshop bag (£12 in the sale)...

...or my espadrilles, which I bought from B&M Bargains for just £2.99
Not the actual shoe I bought.. but more or less the same (mine are actually nicer) I bought them in black too

Best DIY

I bought an age 9-10 boys top From George at ASDA, cut off the sleeves, and around the neck and created this little gem.. it cost £3 and five minutes of my time...
Note: looks much better when not creased or worn.. lol
Biggest Lust
This month it really has to be a fluorescent bag from The Cambridge Satchel Company
My dad won £500, betting on horse racing.. I've tried to convince him that I need this bag in my life.. I've not convinced him yet, but its only £100(ish) so I don't see why he can't buy it for me? lol! Then again, my Mam has already spent half of it on a new Metal Embossed chest of drawers, which is lovely I may add! 

Favourite Picture

Pat on the back for anyone who guesses who the guy is dressed up as..

What have I achieved 
I passed all my exams.. and can continue to Year 3 in University :)

Looking Forward to
Magaluf next month.. ahhhhhhhh seriously can't wait!

So this post probably won't feature the same 'questions' every month.. but what did you think of it? Is it worth doing again for July? Another thing I aim to start is some sort of weekly feature, I really like Daisy Kate's (Fashion Stereotype blog) of 'Sunday Shoes' (I wont actually call it that).. I really love shoes and would love to feature my favourite shoes of that week, whether I've bought them, lusting over them, or just think they're completely crazy.. what do you think?

Thanks for reading lovely's :)


  1. I loved this post!(: you should totally keep doing it! And the idea like Sunday Shoes would be amazing. I'd comment on every single one of them.

    Oh! Question. Were those the Litas you were talking about earlier? They're an awesome looking shoe!

    xoxo, Kay(:
