Seem to have a bit of a fetish for studding at the mo'... I've just ordered some spike studs off ebay to do a few DIY's with, which should create hours of fun in an otherwise lacking summer break. I know a lot of other bloggers have done the same and it's such a great alternative to the generally overpriced pieces on the highstreet. Plus I feel it creates a more personal touch, adding a cool offbeat edge to almost any outfit.

I loved these sunglasses ever since I saw Camilla from Into the fold sporting them. The combination of cat-eye and 90s circle frames (two big trends in terms of sunglasses this summer) create a look of quirky cool which I seriously can't get over. They're on sale right now so I snapped them up without a second thought.

The Sam Edelman 'Zoe' boots are utterly amaze-balls, I saw them ages ago but sadly never in my size, or price bracket for that matter. They're modelled after a pair of Balenciaga boots (circa 2007) famously seen on the Olsen twins. So with style icon status behind them it's no wonder they've been blogged to death, but there's no denying how awesome they are. If any one sees a pair - SIZE 4 in black - floating across the interweb, hook me up and I will be eternally grateful. It would genuinely make my life and we'd be bestest friends forever more... me and the shoes that is ;)  

I put earrings on the wishlist and I don't even have pierced ears O_o but they add to the girlie grunge vibe I'm unwittingly building on right now. Also I've fallen in love with the trend where people wear one cross earring and one stud - it's like some sort of nu-wave pirate chic for guys and dolls alike. Proudlock from Made In Chelsea (oooft yeah) looks to be a proud pioneer of this trend.  

Now I for one go through cameras faster than most people change phones. The Nikon Coolpix made it onto the list purely because I need a new sidekick / pocket camera for when I move to uni and ceebs to carry my DSLR around. I'm not particularly fussed about this model, but if any one could recommend an affordable digital camera currently on the market then that would be absolutely ace.



What's on your wishlist right now?

  3. I have a fetish for studs at the moment too. Everything I want seems to be adorned with studs or spikes! Hope you manage to find the boots. Have you heard of Brandalley? They often have Sam Edelman sales on there. I've got a pair from there but the harness on mine is studded, I got them when they had a Sam Edelman sample sale and they were all a size 4. So definitely worth signing up :) xx

  5. Recent numbers show that 63% of US households own a pet - that's 71.1 million homes and families with dogs, cats, iguanas, parakeets, fish, ferrets, potbellied pigs, etc, etc., Taking care of a pet is tougher than taking care of an infant, since our pets can't speak. Hence, making sure your pet is safe and happy when you leave it alone at home should be a priority for all pet owners. One of the simplest ways of watching over a pet remotely is by using some sort of webcam software like GotoCamera www.gotocamera.com that is easily available online these days. Thanks to technology and some very smart people who are working on making things easier for us, you can now use your basic webcam to monitor your pets while you're away from them.
