Birthday Girl.

Top - New Look 
Skirt - River Island
Boots - New Look 
Tights - M&S  

I turned the grand old age of 23 on Sunday! This is what I wore on Saturday when I went for some drinks. I wanted to feel dressed up a bit but not too much as it was only a pub outing. There are close up of the boots when I last posted them. They were much more comfy with the addition of insoles, so hoping to wear them more now. The top I had been after for a while after seeing it on the New Look website. I never saw it in my local store or the Glasgow one I found it in Bristol. The button was missing off the back so managed to get 10% offI will do a post (or posts) on my trip to bath once I have got all the photos together as some are on my boyfriend's camera.

Ring - Accessorize
Necklace - birthday gift

When I found the ring I needed it as I enjoy owls and cameos so it's mean to be. I thought it was really unusual as well. The Alice in Wonderland  inspired necklace was a gift from my friend and I love it so much! I don't know where she got it from but if anyone is desperate to know I can find out. The detailing is beautiful and is a working watch too. Think she was trying to tell me someone about being on time ;) 

These are the first outfit photos I've taken on a self timer as I only have a tiny desk sized tripod but to get the background I like then I need to use my bed and boxes. I thought it was fine until I looked back and some photos were blurry and very squint. I want to figure out a way to get better shots using a tripod. I don't have a remote either. I don't think I can get one for my camera as it is only a compact. Anybody got tips for make shift tripods or tips for taking self timer shots?

The heart string and how to pull it.

Top - Topshop
Skirt - H&M 
Cardigan - F+F 
Boots - Deichman Shoes  

I have been slow on the posts recently. I did take photos of the valentine's day cake I made but I had been working a lot recently and I just never got round to it and now it's rather later to be posting about it. This heart print skirt was something I had loved since I first saw it but I whenever I try on h&m stuff it never fits. I saw this at £3 and thought might as well try it. It's probably not the most flattering skirt I own but I like it anyway. I believe the V-panel at the front is what saves it for me, as had it been an elasticated waist all the way round it wouldn't have worked for me. The t-shirt was bought afew years ago in the sale. It is actually from the tall section but i really loved the skull and bones american style flag on it. It was very long at the back so needed taken up. It's one of my favourite t-shirts as it is loose fitting and easy to throw on. The boots are also old and were £12! They have been worn to death and now leak when it rains so I should probably give them up but I won't until I find a replacement for them. 

Raymond showed up to my work with the giant balloon! I am impressed that it is still going strong nearly 3 weeks later. This photo was taken on Friday so you can see that it is only started to go abit wrinkly. 

I am off to Bath on Thursday to visit my sister. I have been twice before so I have done the most obvious touristy things like the Roman Baths. Has anyone got any must see hidden gems in Bath or Bristol for that matter? 

A song from home grown heroes, Sucioperro, and my favourite song off The Heart String and How to Pull It called Reflexes of the Dead. Enjoy!
