A Few New Books

A Few New Books
Wednesday, 29 April 2015
Read post

I'm not ashamed to say I do love finding a really good book to really get in to! I love cosy nights where I can take a little break from being glued to my phone and laptop and have a hot drink, blankets and a book! BUT I find it quite hard to find books that interest me because I have outgrown the typical 'teenage' fictions but I find some 'grown up' books quite dull.


I love the look of stacks of books or a full bookshelf in my room so I have been trying to build up my collection with a few new additions. I have been trying also to mix it up a bit and try to branch out from reading the same sort of novels all the time...

These are a few books I got for my birthday and I am really excited to start reading them! I love cooking/baking, Paris and Fashion and from flicking through them I can tell I am probably going to enjoy all of them! So far I love the photos/ images and layouts of all three books, I will keep you updated on how I get on 



Sorry for the slightly rambly, random post but...

Let me know if you have read any of these? Or what sort of books do you recommend/enjoy? I would love to know!

My Favourite Necklace: Orelia Jewellery

My Favourite Necklace: Orelia Jewellery
Sunday, 19 April 2015
Read post


I would definitely say I am quite picky when it comes to necklaces because I don't like anything to heavy, fiddly or in the way. But, I recently discovered Orelia and I adore all of their little dainty pieces! I actually bought this necklace from a local boutique shop that stocked Orelia jewellery but you can buy it online too on their website.


I love the beautiful, tiny, blue gem because it is so simple yet so elegant and goes with so many outfits- I have honestly worn this necklace nearly every day since I bought it! It is made so well too, I can tell it is going to be a staple jewellery piece for me for quite a while...


It was also packaged so beautifully with a quote which I thought was such a lovely touch.


I really want to get some more pieces from Orelia soon, let me know if you have got anything from this brand? Or what do you think?

Outfit posts are one of my favourite to create and read so I thought I would share with you one of my favourite outfits recently. Even though it is officially spring now, I can't resist wearing monochrome outfits! I love the weather at the moment where I live because it is gradually getting warmer and it is so sunny and bright everywhere, it makes everything much happier! I recently made a HUGE Topshop order and I am obsessed with this spring cropped top from Topshop, I have worn it so much!


Top- Topshop
Jacket- Mango
Jeans- Topshop
Boots- Topshop
Socks- Topshop
Necklace- Orelia (post coming soon)



Hope you are all having a lovely weekend! What are you looking forward to most this Spring?

HAPPY EASTER!

HAPPY EASTER!

HAPPY EASTER to anyone reading this, I hope you are having a lovely day whatever you have planned!

Above is a collage I made basically summarising my Easter this year:
My day has mainly been spent chilling at home with my family, which I love. It's a traditional Sunday I guess you could say which included a lazy morning, followed by a roast dinner and then watching TV all in the front room whilst munching on our Easter goodies!

I also did some baking as it is one thing that makes me really really happy. I made some simple shortbreads and decorated them with some cute mini Easter eggs, they were so yummy if I say so myself!




What did you get up to this Easter?

Just Dreamers.

This is just a little post to share with you a few bits and pieces I have been loving recently. I have also tried to improve my photography and set-up of my blog a tiny bit, so let me know what you think! 

I love Urban Outfitters A LOT. and here are a few finds I have had recently which I am absolutely in love with:


Jewellery tray/small plate- I found this gem on sale in the Camden High Street store a few weeks ago on sale for around £5 which I though was such a good price, I couldn't resist! It would look perfect in lots of places because it is monochrome so it is very versatile. I also love the hand-drawn look of it, I guess you could call it a very "me" piece. 
I keep this on my bedside table for jewellery, hair bits and even as a drinks coaster! I couldn't find a link online but keep your eyes peeled for it in the sale if you go to a store anytime soon.


By the way...the bracelets are from Topshop- aren't they so pretty and dainty?!


Finally from Urban Outfitters I got a makeup bag. And no surprise at all...it's MONOCHROME!
I  bought this for £14 which may seem a little pricey for a makeup bag but I can tell that it is really well made and will last me a long time, the simplistic pattern also means I wont "outgrow it" quickly if you know what I mean!
It is also a really good size which is perfect for a makeup-lover like me. I like having this out on display in my room on my bedside table because it really goes with the theme of my room too!



A bit of a random post really...but let me know your thoughts?
And what finds have you been loving recently?
