Happy Friday Everyone!
This week I’ve been working everyday since Tuesday and I’ve still got tomorrow to work too then I’m off for a few days! Its also crazy that Monday is the 1st of August meaning there’s only 2 weeks until I go away!!
I was so proud of myself last Monday as I managed to get all my posts ready for the next two weeks so I have plenty of posts coming your way!
Onto Friday Favourites
I’ve already spoke about these shoes in my post on Tuesday but I had to mention them again because I’m obsessed. They are the perfect shoe both in hight and colour and I love the block heel. They look great with denim too as I’m preferring to wear them with jeans.
Becoming – By Laura Jane Williams
I’ve just started reading Becoming by Laura Jane Williams and so far so good! I’m also listening to her podcast titled from her book – The Becoming Podcast, which is also great so if you’re a fan of the book definitely give her podcast a listen too!
Jeans + Bag
Both of these pieces are from Zara, I have a bit of an obsession with Zara at the moment. So while I was returning one pair of boots I picked up theses jeans which I’m so in love with. I had been searching for a fun looking denim for a while and Zara has some great pairs. I also really like the frayed detailing on the hem and the cropped length making them look great with my Zara block heels.
The bag which is also from Zara made from real leather and has a lovely chain strap detailing. Zara bags can sometimes be a hit or miss as I’ve had ones that break really easy and ones that last for years. This will hopefully be one that lasts as I plan on taking it to NYC with me as my main cross body bag!
After about a month I’ve finally finished reading the Harry Potter Books. I feel like I’ve been emerged in the wizarding world for a long time and its pretty great!
This shows just how behind I am at posting things as I had this post written back in May and my hair done back in May… But I’m still going to post it anyway
If you follow me on Instagram I’m sure you may have seen my before and after shots of my hair.
After a year of being blonde then trying to grow it out back to my natural colour I finally gave in and went to my hairdressers – the lovely girls over at Mokoko – and got it dyed.
I only got a semi permeant put in so now some of the blonde is coming back through at the ends, So i have an appointment booked to get it brightened up a bit!
I have also been trying to grow it – which is the longest and most frustrating process- as I’ve hated the way it sits for so long. And I want it a bit longer for going away in August.
Finally after months and months I’m finally sharing my post on my prints collection.
You may have seen in my room tour post (you can see it here) that I have 5 prints above my bed and then a Friends related one on my desk. I got most of them off Etsy as they have some great prints and many that are hand crafted especially for the stores. I also got a couple from Society6 which is more photography style prints.
Friends Water Colour – LauraRoeStudio
New York City – Society6
Chrysler Building – Society6
New York Print – Martha Mitchell Design
Friends Theme Print – Genuine Design Co
Lately I have been adding to my shoe collection more and more. I’m picking up shoes perfect for the summer and also ones that I can wear in the Scottish Summer
Wrap Around – River Island
I had been lusting after the Steve Madden Christy’s for months but didn’t want to pay too much for shoes that I might not get a lot of wear out of. I spied these River Island heels almost identical, just with a smaller heel! Which I actually prefer as it means I can wear them for longer without my feel hurting too much!
Solillas – Sandals Dusty Rose
I’ve been on the hunt for some sandals for when I go away to New York and I couldn’t see any that screamed buy me. Then while having a quick look in Office I seen these Solillas and loved them. They are super comfortable and will be perfect for walking around. Next I plan on getting a proper pair of Espadrilles as I’m finally jumping on the band wagon even if I am running late.
Brogues – Churches
I picked up these Churches from work to wear to work but I actually feel that I can wear these so many other places. I love the way Churches in the Brogue style looks with jeans.
Block Heel – Zara
Out of the whole list these are by far my favourites I love the colour and also the block heel, making these so easy to walk in! I also love the way they look with denim especially the ones in the photography which are also from Zara.
I’m thinking of starting doing Monday catch ups each week as I feel its a good way to get back into the week.
I haven’t posted in about a week as I had no motivation and Inspiration at all last week. Its seriously weird because when I’m off work I have no motivation to create blog posts but when it comes to this week where I’m working every day & I have so much inspiration to get posts out… Typical.
I also have this habit of getting so inspired at 11 o’clock at night just when I get into bed. It happened the other night I had just switched my TV off and a post popped into my head and it was one of those posts where you have to write it down or otherwise it will be gone forever..
This weekend I also attempted to take outfit photos- and I say attempted because they turned out pretty bad. Haha I rushed to get ready and took them in my back garden – worst location I know- and nothing looked right. Although it did give me a chance to practice getting my photo taken, I had my sister taking the photos & she was loving it. She was acting like a proper photographer, and getting down on the ground to get the best shots… Our neighbours must of thought we were mental.
I did get some great shoe shots so they will be coming sometime this week and also I’m finally sharing the post on my prints!
