What I wore… for twenty four!

It was my birthday on Sunday (June 9th) and I had lots of fun drinking and eating delicious pizza. Here was my first outfit of 24.

Dress and cardigan: H&M // Jelly shoes: JuJu // Socks: Topshop // Sunglasses: from Brick Lane market // Watch: Urban Outfitters // Lipstick: Russian Red by MAC.

I was also gifted this amazing Tatty Divine brooch, which I quickly added to my outfit. It’s the most perfect thing ever (dogs on wheels are my favourite things in the world)!


24 and not much wisdom

I promise blogging will resume soon, I turned 24 at the weekend so was busy being spoilt. But at the same time one of my wisdom teeth (bottom right to be precise) decided to come through to say hai and infect me, and I have to say… pretty much the worst.pain.ever. Anti-biotics, painkillers and rest for me.

Cute ring, right? Don’t think mine looks like that though.


Paris – Mama Shelter & Eiffel Tower adventures

We arrived at our hotel Mama Shelter (which is amazing!!) and settled in nicely..
It was not the best weather in the world but we did the most touristy thing you can do and went to visit the Eiffel tower! And what a wonderful fella he is..
I decided the Eiffel tower looks like the Blackpool tower (check out my northern points of reference!)
We walked and explored and ended up in Jardin des Tuileries..DSC_3277

You know you’re a designer/illustrator when the thing that excites you the most in this museum is the style guide. Oh god. LOVE. The colour palettes are also designed based on the most famous paintings in their collection. Amazing!DSC_3203 DSC_3205 DSC_3208
Afterwards we ate delicious nutella, banana, strawberry and cream filled pancakes!
