Blue stripes.

July 15, 2016

Top | Vintage
Jeans | Attitude
Shoes | Primark
Earrings | Forever 21

I've actually had these jeans since I was a teenager and luckily they still fit. I used to wear them all the time a few years ago and had forgotten all about them. Whilst going through a few bags of old clothes the other day they were rediscovered, yay! I love the high-waisted fit and prefer to wear them with the bottoms rolled up a little. I just had to pair them with these adorable cream Primark shoes but Converse would look equally as good.

The top was a find at a local vintage fair just over a year ago. Anything striped instantly gives me a French vibe, but I think that's just due to my obsession with French movies haha. As it's not always (ever) warm here in the evenings, it makes a perfect summer piece.

TheVeganKind | July box.

July 14, 2016

This month's VeganKind box arrived last week, and oh my was it a good one!

It's probably sad that as a 26 year old, I got most excited when I saw a little mini bag of my favourite vegan cola bottle sweeties. I buy these all the time in Tesco and look forward to trying their cherry ones. I've also now got an obsession with these soy & balsamic vinegar Snapea rice sticks. At first I wasn't sure but now I've been buying bags & bags of them haha. They really remind me of the salt & vinegar Chipstick crisps.

I don't like olives at all so those have been given to my dad. The can of ice tea is still in my fridge as I'd completely forgotten about it, but I am such a massive fan of everything tea so can't wait to try it!

The chocolate, coconut & oat slices are amazing! They taste like a mix between brownie & flapjack, mmm. Even just opening the packet I was in heaven with the smell. I love the cute little size of the raw chocolate bar, and it features goji berries, yummy. Lastly, there was a beautiful raspberry scented soy candle. It smells like creamy sweeties, and also included was a leaflet of all the other (I almost typed flavours) scents that they offer. I want every single one, but the jaffa cakes one is high up on my list!

Bonus rattie photo! What do you think of the items in this box?

Tshirt | Zara
Skirt | H&M

Ahh, who doesn't love a t-shirt with a slogan which conjures up deep thoughts? I picked this one up in Zara a few months ago, and I love the ringer style. I decided to pair it with this cute little aztec skirt from H&M, the red and berry shades seem to work well together. When I first wore this skirt I thought the zip was meant to be at the back, so ended up wearing it backwards for a whole evening, idiot haha. If anyone has any links to similar tees please send them my way :)

How has your week been so far? I've been addicted to the tv show Love on Netflix and can't stop watching it. I was a bit skeptic as I found Gillian Jacob's character in Community quite annoying but she's really good in this. The show has such a charm and is genuinely laugh out loud funny, as well as providing lots of serious and awkward moments. Have you seen it?

Vegan Zizzi's & new ratties.

June 24, 2016

Last week I really fancied a pizza delivery and then realised that Zizzi's has a vegan option - yasss! It was hard to decide what I wanted from all the toppings but in the end I went for spinach, mushrooms and peppers. It's weird, I used to hate mushrooms. A lot. But I love them now! The "cheese" was a bit runnier than I would have liked but overall it was a really delicious pizza.

If you follow me on instagram you'll know that recently I got three new baby rats. I actually went to pick up one (or two) and somehow fell in love with three, woops. So I'd like to properly introduce Winston, Schmidt and Nick. Hope there's some New Girl fans reading this, I just thought it was the perfect trio of names. They're all dumbo rex rats which means that they have ears on the side of their head instead of the top, and that their fur is curlier than normal rats. They're the sweetest little things ever! I just love when they're this tiny and still growing into their ears and their big back feet.

Top | Primark
Jeans | Topshop
Boots | Primark

Why is there a Titanic style pose going on here? Who the hell knows, sorry haha. Quite a simplistic outfit but I love it nonetheless. I'm obsessed with this rusty-orange shade when paired with red lipstick, I just think it works so well. Also, that back detail - gorgeous!

May as well tell you a "fun" fact about these jeans. If you look really closely you'll see little holes on the bum area. Thanks ratties. That'll teach me to leave any clothes on my bed when I have them out. I'd be more annoyed if I hadn't gotten these Jamie jeans in the sale. 

I'm off to meet my friend today (not wearing this outfit, it's from the other week and I had forgotten about it, shhh) and maybe go for a walk through the Botanic gardens, here's hoping the weather stays decent but I've probably tempted fate now. I've been told by my sister that there's not a lot of actual flowers there at the moment and that "it's all just green" hahaha. Just give me squirrels and I'll be happy.

Hope you're having a nice Thursday!
