And the sun has appeared! After a very, very long winter, spring has finally arrived. I’ve been trying to dress more summery recently with bright colours and floral patterns, but I’ve been slightly standing out due to the dreary weather. Now, fingers crossed, I’ll be able to dress more weather appropriate.
I’ve been super busy (I know, I know…) so I haven’t been able to blog much. I’ve been trying to get around to filming something too, but people who don’t blog don’t really get how long everything takes. If it’s an outfit post you need to put a bit of effort into the outfit, take the photos, edit and then upload the post. And when you’re filming, that takes 10 times longer, especially the editing side of things and then uploading on a super-slow broadband speed (Thanks EE!). I’d love to know how bloggers with a full-time job keep up the blogging on the side too, especially those with a 45min+ commute either way. I know there are ore and more full-time bloggers/Youtubers, who solely do this, but if you have a 9-5 job as well it can get a little draining. I’m an editor for an online retailer, so the last thing I want to do is create more content, and I hate doing anything half hearted…
Anyway, I don’t want to rant. Let’s have a look at the clothes! The midi/maxi floral dress was found in a charity shop last year. I love it, especially in the warmer months. The yellow jumper was a New York find, which makes it over a year old now (wow, I really want to go back to New York!). The boots are Topshop via eBay, and are soooo comfy. I have the black version too, which you’ve probably seen in an outfit picture or two, and I love to war them for work. Finally, the necklace is a Primark special and the lipstick is Ronnie Red by MAC… Lush.

This bag is on the large size, which is something I absolutely love when it comes to handbags. It can fit my very large laptop in it as well as everything else I normally carry around. It’s really sturdy too, and the colour goes with everything! I also love wearing this blue shirt by Topshop at the moment, which my sister gave me for Christmas, it’s perfect for adding colour to an outfit.

Gold 3 Chain Necklace – Freedom at Topshop
Lipstick – New York Apple by MAC
Wouldn’t it be fantastic to have a new bag a day? Unfortunately we don’t have this luxury (unless you’re a celebrity), but treating yourself to a new bag every now and then really improves your outfit… and mood! This gorgeous black bag from TK Maxx adds a touch of sophistication to my outfits, and really makes me feel grown up. After all, I am 25 now… Haha! I love the crocodile effect as well as the long shoulder straps, and the size is perfect for fitting all my bits and pieces in.
My mum got me the dress for my birthday; I adore the oriental floral print on the red fabric with the gold thread running through. Unfortunately, like most Topshop products, it’s not made amazingly well as the seams are starting to come away and the gold print keeps flaking off. It’s such as shame as I love Topshop (well, who doesn’t) but everything I buy never lasts long. Saying that, I’ll still buy from them!! I purchased the black sandals the other day, and I love wearing them with tights (after all, they probably won’t last until the summer)!
…How is it March already???!!!

Rose gold pointy drop earrings – Freedom @ Topshop
Callum gave me this jumper for Christmas, and I loved it so much that I knew I’d have to wear it after the festive season. And you know what? I did just that! Who cares if it isn’t Christmas anymore?
I was also given these rose gold earrings, and I absolutely love them. Rose gold is me absolute fave and I’ve invested in rather a lot of jewellery in this pretty hue.
Can you believe it’s almost February? That means it’s almost my birthday, which means I’m almost TWENTY FIVE :O

Black zara tote dupe – Primark
I hate how everyone gets so caught up about snow. I hate it because I’m scared I’m going to fall over or get stuck somewhere… But seriously everyone gets so obsessed with the snow! And me talking about it has fueled the fire.
Everyone now has this zara dupe from Primark, but it’s such a bargain! It’s massive and will fit everything in…
I’m currently in bed, feeling rather sick. But I’ve had a bowl of soup and hopefully will be on the mend soon.
