Outfit Of The Day- Noir Night

Top- Urban Outfitters
Skirt- New Look
Jacket- ASOS

Yet another of my new Urban Outfitters T Shirts. I popped in to town to pick up a few things. Ended up buying another Topshop jumper. I've got a massive thing for baggy knitwear at the moment. It's just so comfy.

Going to hit the gym later and carry on figuring out Twitter. I feel so behind times aha probably should have got it sooner to be honest. Can't believe lectures start again tomorrow- it's going to be so weird but I'm looking forward to getting back into a routine.

Have a nice weekend

Urban Outfitters Graphic Tee's

Urban Outfitters Truly Madly Deeply Cosmic Zodiac Tee
Urban Outfitters The Lovers Tee
Urban Outfitters Truly Madly Deeply Noir Night Tee

A few days ago, a UNIdays e-mail popped into my inbox highlighting the fact that they were doing an exclusive 20% off for students at Urban Outfitters. Now I love all the graphic tee's that UO do but I cannot justify paying around £30 for one T-shirt so I jumped at the chance to pick some up at a discounted price. Plus my student loan was about to come in and the rest of my summer pay, so, yknow, it had to be done....

Now, I have to mention UO's customer service. I stupidly put the wrong second part of the postcode so hurriedly e-mailed and phoned them hoping they could catch it in time. Unfortunately, they can't which I totally understand but all their replies and conversations via phone were always really polite and e-mails very quick. The courier that UO use is Hermes,a company I've never had issues with before ( they're also the same courier Topshop and ASOS use) and even though the postcode was partially wrong, it still turned up 4 days later, albeit stuffed through the letterbox at 6pm. Nevertheless, I'm so excited to wear these.

Have you guys bought anything from Urban Outfitters recently?
And check out UNIdays if you're a student.

Outfit Of The Day feat Primark Mens Jumper

Sorry I look so deadly pale in this! It was was one of those lazy days with not much to do but I just had to show you this gorgeous jumper I bought from Primark mens a few weeks ago. I love the knit of it and it's super comfy. Perfect with leggings and ankle boots for an easy day outfit.

Have a good day, guys :)

Vera Wang Princess Night Perfume

Absolute B-E-A-UTY. I have been obsessed with this perfume for absolutely ages and my boyfriend bought it for me from the duty free when he went on holiday and it stopped me going on about it :P
It's a really sweet and fruity fragrance and stays on the skin for ages. I hate those perfumes you just can't smell after 2 hours wearing it. I also love all the packaging- it's essentially the same bottle as the Princess scent but covered in black glitter and I love the little crown as a lid.
The only thing I could suggest is that you MUST smell it if you see it the shops because unfortunately I can't spray it through the computer screen.

The small bottle retails at around £33 from places such as Debenhams, The Perfume Shop and Boots.

Outfit Of The Day feat Checkered Shirt Dress

Dress- River Island
Jacket- ASOS
Hat- H&M

Well I've finally moved into my second year uni house. It was a long summer but I was glad to flee the nest again.Trying to squeeze my wardrobe into a suitcase was defiantely a hard task. I eventually gave up and put a lot of into bin bags.... I quite like my new room. It's much much bigger than a standard halls room and I have a chest of drawers which is the perfect height for me to put my camera on top of. Minus feet but I just paired this outfit with my new ASOS boots that I've been wearing non stop.

The dress was from the Chelsea Girl concession in River Island and I picked it up for a steal because at the moment if you by the most recent Company magazine, there's an offer for 20% for students. And that was just inviting me to spend money! I've picked up quite a few pieces recently- Primark men's has been serving me well and now I'm back at uni, I'll be doing more OOTD's. And I still have a week to go until lectures and so on start again but I'm looking forward to getting back into a routine again.

Have a good day guys :)

So I had a ton of Boot's points to use so I though why not treat myself to some really nice nail polishes and these are the ones I picked up- Model's Own Pro (found in most big Boot's stores) in Kiss My Brass, Come to Bed Red and Jack's Black. I thought they made quite a good group to get as the colour all interact with each other quite well.
I thought I would give the reverse mani a go- at least I think that's what it's called. Correct me if I'm wrong. I painted a black undercoat first and then with the sticky bit of a post it note fashioned myself a guide for the gold moon. However my sister pointed out to me that it probably would have been a lot easier to do the gold first and then cut out a half circle, stick it on the nail and then paint the black, which makes a lot more sense but oh well! I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out. It's still a bit messy around the edges but that'll come off in due time. And I've already chipped one nail. Typical.

I'm off back to uni tomorrow so I've been packing and then packing some more. 
Trying to pack my wardrobe is not an easy task. I may have to sit on my suitcase to do it up.
Excited to be going back though.
Have a good day!

Outfit Of The Day feat Nose Piercing

nose piercing

Jacket- Asos
Dress- H&M
Boots- Asos
Necklace- Topshop
Lipstick- Ruby Woo

Yep, I finally finally bit the bullet and got my nose pierced! Yay! It was mainly because I had finished my summer job and could let it heal over the months that I'm back at uni before Christmas. Basically, the piercing asked me whether I would want to ever wear a ring (which was a yes) and then drew three dots on my nose with a felt pen for me to choose. Does it hurt? Yes. Not so much the initial prick but all the wiggling around bit that comes after and my eyes were streammming. But it wears off quickly and everything's gravy. No hotness or throbbing. Just a nice stud sitting cushty in your nose.

I snapped a sneaking OOTD in Urban Outfitters and it was the first outing for my new biker jacket and boots. I actually got several hours out of them before they really began to rub. I've basically just hobbled home. However, my big annoyance of the day was my handbag. I bought it from Zara a while ago, long ago enough for me to have chucked the receipt, but the cashier didn't do it properly or whatever, but it still sets off certain security alarms which is super awkward. I probably should have gone back and got it sorted at the time but you get so used to them going off all the time, you don't really notice. Anyway, I went into Zara- alarm goes off and I explain basically exactly the same here. Can they sort it out/deactivate what ever tag they left in it? No. They need a receipt. Balls. Or a bank statement. And I'm like seriously? It's got all my junk in it, clearly from your shop and I don't have a bank statement on me which wouldn't necessarily prove anything and they wouldn't deactivate it. So hopefully I'm going to go into the one in my uni town and explain it, armed with bank statement and hopefully will put an end to it. Just super irritating though. It would literally only take them two seconds to sort it out. Eurgh.

Anyway, rant over. 
And either way, I'm super happy with my new nose stud and I picked up a few bits and bobs for myself as well which I will show you all tomorrow!

ASOS Adelaide Boots And Leather Jacket

ASOS Leather Biker Jacket
Asos Leather Biker Jacket Detail

Finally! Finally my ASOS order came and I finally have in my possession a real leather biker jacket and a brilliant pair of leather ankle boots. Best £130 I've ever spent and I know I'll get a lot of wear out of them both!
I'm literally over the moon. The delivery came just as I got back from work this morning and I don't think my mum has ever seen me bolt it down the stair as quick as I did when I heard the knock. For £100, the jacket isn't the thickest leather around but it's well lined and I love the extra quilted detailing around the shoulders. I got it in a size up so that I could have room for a hoodie or jumper underneath and, unlike a lot of leather jackets I had been trying on, the arms weren't ridiculously tight and I've got plenty of wiggle room.

Now I want it to be winter so I can start wearing them with lots of wooly jumpers and scarves!
