KID ROCK ft. La Redoute, Forever21, Converse & Jack Willis

Bandana - Forever21
Batman Tee -
Leather Trousers - La Redoute
Pink Converse - Amazon
Hoodie - Jack Willis

What better way to rock a Friday than leather trousers, a bandana and a pair of awesome coloured Converse hi tops? Three of my favourite things! The leather trousers are probably down to the Billy Idol autobiography i've been reading.. it's an awesome insight into his life (if you're interested, check it out here!)
As i'm only 5"3 finding leather trousers that don't look make my legs look (too much of) a wrinked mess isn't easy, but for an amazing prize these are perfect and they don't seem to bring the heat with them that the usual ones do - still perfect for keeping you cosy though! Total bargain buy of 2014.
My trusty Converse hi-tops will be a wardrobe staple all year round now I have some in a bright colour! The batman tee was an essential as I love how the back has the Joker print and the front has the postmark of Arkham City.. how i'd love a Bat-Mobile! 
I'm feeling focused and slightly invincible today - Happy Friday!

Bras Galore win and Freya review

Beautiful underwear is a must for all women - they make you feel beautiful no-matter what you are wearing and I think they can really give you a big confidence boost when you need one! New and beautiful looking garments can make a day feel instantly better..

A gigantic thankyou to Rock and Roll Pussycat's blog for picking me as the winner for a Bras Galore gift voucher!

The underwear I picked came packaged discreetly (which I always think is a bonus) and folded in a beautiful printed crepe-paper that made them look like gorgeous gifts! With my £25 voucher I managed to get 2 pairs of beautiful bottoms from the Freya brand and they look even better than on the website!

Freya Fancies Brazilian
The pink is slightly brighter than on the site but are still a deep colour which the white waistband compliments perfectly! They are a fab fit, super comfortable and the lace feels of an amazing quality. They sit slightly below the hips and I think I could wear them underneath anything - leggings, jeans, dresses etc. They make me feel like a princess!

Freya Deco Darling Thong
The design of these is simply stunning. The lace panel is a pale pink which the picture really doesn't do justice! The material has a soft almost-satin feel and this is probably the most comfortable one that I own! The small gem detailing on the front just adds that little extra something and the rose pictured lace detailing makes them look like a small masterpiece. These sit quite high on the hips so i'd probably wear these more under dresses rather than jeans (unless i'm wearing a long top or a high-waisted variety!) But I would still definitely recommend these very highly.

Can't Break Me Down ft. SpyLoveBuy

So, these super amazing boots? I'm in love and I don't think I've felt this way about a pair of boots since I bought my first pair of New Rocks aged 15!
Super comfortable, fit perfectly and the platform makes them feel like flats so no 'tottering' around trying to control my feet and balance! The charcoal colouring and lace-up nature of them gives them a really laid-back feel which is why I thought I'd try teaming them with my usual band tee and skinny jeans - I think I pulled it off.. These boots also give you stature and make me feel like i'm walking on air - one of those pairs of shoes you slip on and you feel invincible.
Also - at the price of only £24.95 I thoroughly recommend investing - even if you've never tried platform boots before.
My tee was also a super bargain. I've been after a new Green Day tee for ages and this one is selling for £18 currently on Amazon UK - I was doing my usual browse of the local charity shops and this popped up in the mens section (Brand New!) for only £2! So sometimes it's well worth a look as they usually just plonk all the band merchandise on the male rails..
As per Topshop jeans are amazing and these feel like a cross between leggings and yoga pants they're that comfortable.

I was super lucky to win the Nubuck boots in a monthly SpyLoveBuy Facebook page rafflecopter at the end of last month - So a giant THANKYOU to SpyLoveBuy for picking me as their winner!

Mixing Up Meals for 2015

So although I have always eaten reasonably healthily, due to my love of fresh fruit and home-made salads; I'm afraid that my diet slacked a bit in the second half on 2014..
I must admit it was very enjoyable eating yummy cheeseburgers and lots of chocolates and cheeses but I'm ready to try and get myself back on track and want to make more of an effort.
I'm not talking copious amounts of hours in the gym followed by eating a smoothie and not allowing myself to even sniff the scent of a Haribo sweet.. but just bringing in more well-rounded balanced and healthy homemade meals and doing more workouts from home too.

Roasted Butternut Squash Risotto!

Homemade Pizzas

So me and the boyfriend are both on-board with this (which makes it so much easier!) and have decided on some meals we'd like to try, some we already love that can be incorporated and we will also be exercising from home as this makes it a lot 'cheaper' to be more active rather than a costly gym membership!

I will still be having a 'treat day' once a week where we will indulge in a meal we love, creating a good balance as after all, we all need to treat ourselves!

Happy 2015!

2015: Here we come!

So this year has been a bit of a shambles, a bit of a break and a lot of time to think!
2015 will be the year of doing!

I think since me and the boyfriend got together in 2010 everything had been all go with work, quite stressful and very busy! This year we got to chill out a bit more, enjoy each other's company and think about the future..
I also got to experience some fantastic things!
My best friend got married! I got to go to the Harry potter Studio Tour! I saw the Coca Cola lorry for the first time!

But starting in January we will be implementing some goals for this year, some bigger than others, but ones we are both comfortable with and we can't wait to get started!

  • Get a New Job
  • Start Driving Lessons again
  • Get a Car
  • Think about Saving up to Move house
  • Transform our Spare Room
  • Travel to America
  • Travel to Ireland
  • Go to London as a 'tourist'

Other than these things though I also already have some great things to look forward to over the next year!
I'm seeing ACDC at Wembley in July!!
I'll be celebrating 5 Years with the boyfriend
My brother is getting Married too!


It's gonna be a great year!
2015 Here We Come!
