Money can't buy back the youth of your life.


Myself and my dear friend Abi went shopping in Birmingham the other week and here's what I wore... I'm soo pleased with my new burgundy blazer (t'is from New Look), and it's rather snazzy if I do say so myself. Now autumn's on the way I just can't wait to wear this colour almost every day! (ooh that rhymed, tehe) it's so perfect, it's fair to say I'm a little obsessed.

I had an audition to be on a TV advert quite recently, it was soo much fun I was literally reeling from the excitement for hours later! Doubt I'll get chosen but just auditioning was a total thrill, and after my borderline depressing post last month on wishing I was still pursuing acting, it's given me a total confidence boost. I find out if I've been selected on my birthday of all days, but even if I don't hear back I'm just really happy I went for it all the same.


7 days til my birthday and I am totally psyched... most of my friends are off at uni now, which sucks, but I'm still determined to have a good time. I'm already pondering over what to spend my birthday money on... I could always invest it, in a very low yield bond, or maybe I should just go ahead and spend it on something ridiculous and fancy..... yeahh, think I'm gonna opt for the latter.
The only problem is I'm stuck between what to go for; Vivienne Westwood 'Melissa' shoes in rose glitter, floral Dr Martens, or Coco Mademoiselle Chanel perfume. The Melissa shoes are, let's face it, delightfully tacky; they're fun, sparkly, and not to forget ladies & gents they carry the simply scrumptious scent of bubblegum! Oh yeah, WOW. The DM's however would slip seamlessly into my wardrobe - they look great for walking in and my old boots are falling to pieces now so I need a new pair anyway. Ooh and then comes the Chanel perfume, which smells absolutely amazing, but however nice as it would be to smell like Kiera Nightly I think I've got my heart set on the shoes right now... the only problem is which pair?! The Melissa's have really got me excited, it's just being so expensive I can only afford one or the other :/ oh it's such a debacle, which shoes to choose??


Hope you all have an absolutely fantabulous weekend lovlies!

  1. I like both pairs! You'd probably get more wear from the DMs though so maybe go for them?! Or is that too sensible an option.. love your blazer, I want some jeans in that colour! xo

  3. ooh i like all those bday things, but i would probably go for the melissa shoes. that said, i don't have any melissa's in my collection, mainly because i'm just not sure of how much i would like the jelly effect of them..

  8. I love those floral doc martens, they're absolutely lovely. I also like the colour of your blazer, it's really nice. I can hardly find nice things in my New Look when I go, perhaps I am going at the wrong time though.

    Have a lovely birthday, and a lovely time in Venice.

  16. I'd go for the perfume personally just because I can't resist a fancy perfume.
    But I think the Floral Docs are the safest bet, you'll get so much more wear out of them. But then it's always nice to have an inapproriate splurge....oh I don't know, I'm no help at all!

  17. You left a comment on a post of mine sayig you want to omber your hair, I say doo it I think it would suit you. If you decide to go for it just give me a post and I can give you tips. Hmm may have to check out new look for that blazer, you look great. What advert you audition for? I would go for the pink sparkley shoes.x

  18. You should definitely do whatever makes you feel happy on your birthday! I vote for the shoes :-) xoxooxo

  19. I love that outfit. It has a bit of Blair Waldorf charm mixed into it but at the same time has an edgy feel with those boots. Your blog is fabulous!
    Love your posts too, you write so well!
    I can't decide what shoes I like best, probably those floral Docs, they are adorable.
    I'm a new follower, would you follow me?

  24. scented shoes? why the hell not! but actually I'd say go for the DMs because, looking through your posts (which are lovely by the way), I think you're right-they'd fit right in with your general style.
    thanks for stopping by my blog earlier - visit again soon and we could follow eachother?! x
