An awesome friend of mine gave me a hand in re-styling my tumblr page and I can now finally unveil the new design! Seeing as I'm going to be MIA for another two weeks, I thought this would give you more inspiration whilst I'm cramming away! Those of you who are mid-way through / starting exams soon, GOOD LUCK! And those of you who have finished / don't have exams, please say "Hi" to the sun for me and do some sun worshipping on my behalf!

I think everyone has already seen the statement dresses from the Met Gala, whether it be a good or bad statement. It's a shame that the understated glamour garments are completely missed off the best dressed list which is why I have dedicated this post to Carine Roitfeld in Givenchy Haute Couture. As can be seen here, you don't need to be covered in sparkles or flash your flesh to be the most glam, sometimes it best to keep it clean and simple. This black ensemble is definitely one of my favourites, Kudos Carine!

Okay, I know, these boots are "so last season" but when you're addicted, it doesn't matter if they're "in" or not, just as long as you can make them "look" in :D
I already own a pair of ankle boots which look like this from Topshop called AMBUSH, actually, in fact I think they're identical but...
THESE HAVE STUDS, it's a game changer!
I have started to get into the habit of buying two of everything I love, especially shoes because once it's gone, it's really gone (sometimes) and I like to have the option to continue wearing the same style/shape/colour. I bought a pair of desert boots from Topshop and then in the sale I bought THE SAME PAIR, thinking that when the first pair becomes old and worn out I can do some DIY like spray paint/stud/glitter them as an experiment, it's like giving the shoes one last hurrah before I have to say farewell because they're beyond repair.
Do you do that?
Or am I just wasting money because I am literally duping my closet?
P.S. My exams start tomorrow so I'm going to be rubbish at keeping you updated. But I will aim to at least post once every alternate day!
P.P.S. To keep you entertained for a bit longer, I found out that shopbop has a pinterest account! Have a gander, it's kinda cool.

After all the anticipation and waiting for the launch of H&M Fashion Against Aids, I was not disappointed when finally got my hands on the goodies! The shorts and bikini caught my eye the first time I saw the collection online and it's all because of that awesome aztec/navajo/tribal (delete as appropriate) print which I just cannot get enough of! Speaking of which, I still haven't found that perfect aztec/navajo/tribal backpack yet :(
Have you found it? Link me!
I don't know if the new carrier bags are just for this collection or if it's for summer but the teal-blue is so gorgeous. I cannot wait for summer to roll round!
I was actually quite surprised at the amount of stock left over when I went to my local store.
Did you guys manage to get your hands on any this collection?

This is the first picture of Sasha since the announcement of her pregnancy in December. This stunning picture was taken by Igor Vishnyakov, her husband, and would you believe that she is 8-9months pregnant! She hasn't disclosed any info about the sex of the baby, but one thing is for sure, he/she is going to be gorgeous!
This year seems to be a baby boom and magazines have been fighting over who gets exclusive coverage of the baby bump pics and I have to say out of all the pictures out there, this had got to be my favourite. It's natural, organic and simple.

“What she remembers most vividly about her father’s steady style is his watch, a simple timepiece with a square, gold face and black fabric band that he was never without. She doesn’t know who made it (the brand name has worn off with time), where he bought it, or if it was a gift. All she knows is that when she wears it now, ten years after her dad’s passing, “I feel a little of him with me.”But because it’s too precious and priceless for everyday use, Marant’s crafted an almost dupe of the original and is available only in the Paris and New York boutiques.

Personally I'm quite hesitant about wearing yellow because my skin tone is... yellowish!
I remember when I was younger, my cousin told me about how she would never wear yellow because it would clash with her skin tone and to this day I don't have a yellow item in any of my cosets. But looking at these pictures makes me want to give this shade a chance.

I finally got my hands on one of the most wanted accessories courtesy of oasap. They have done a really good job in duping this all time favourite! All the aesthetics are the same and just because it is cheap, you're not compromising on quality as there is some weight to the ring, I love that! They come in different 5 colours but are are going fast, so get yours while you can and new customers get 20% off!
