Little Red Corvette

What & Where?

Jacket - Topshop, Jumper - American Apparel, Jeans - Topshop, Shoes - Topshop ,
Sunglasses - RayBan

Oh hey blog,  hows it going? It seems like it's been a while but I'm back! I feel like I haven't posted in ages as I've had so much going on with new projects / life in general so sadly I did have to neglect Taz and Bear for a few weeks but fear not, lots of posts ready to publish!

How amazing has the weather been lately? It's so nice not having to layer up with about 3 jumpers & a thick coat on. My Leopard print jacket (sorry, I think it's featured on this blog quite a lot already!) is so perfect to slip on as its so light - plus I can't get enough of it, best buy of last year I think!

In other news it's the Company Blogger Awards soon and for the first time I thought I'd put it up on zee blog! If you'd like to vote for Taz and Bear I would be super duper grateful! It's really easy & it wouldn't take long at all - massive thank you if you do decide to vote!

Hey Spring

What & Where?

Jumper - Topshop | Skirt - Topshop | Trainers - Nike 

So, my last outfit post I was basically trying to stand still on a pier, trying to not get blown away... A few weeks later and it seems there is somewhat of a yellow disk in the clear blue sky?
Spring is here !!

Perhaps I was a little overwhelmed by the sun being out and not having a coat on...errrr it wasn't that warm! But my croc jumper finally felt right to wear just due to the fact that is was white! It's super comfy and soft but I instantly fell in love with the croc texture on the front which you can't really see in these photos unfortunately. Pretty much most of my outfit is Topshop with my quilted skirt (I say mine...I may have taken it from my sisters wardrobe oops). I had been after it since it came out but one good thing about having a sister who is the same size as you is that you can borrow or in this case take it teehee! Not brave enough to get out those pasty white legs just yet, so the tights are still on - maybe soon eh?...or not until I've had a summer hoilday ha! 

In other news, I am going on a short little city break to Amsterdam in a few weeks. Places to visit are all welcome! Do let me know if you've been, would love to hear!

Grand Pier

What & Where?

Coat - M&S
Jeans - M&S
Bag- Longchamp
Trainers  - Nike
Bobble Hat- H&M

I'm still unsure how I wasn't blown away on this adventure. It was so windy that you couldn't even walk around it...but no silly us still wanted to go on it and have a mooch around! Only living 30mins away from Weston you can imagine I spent many childhood weekends on the pier but here's the part where I tell you I haven't even been on it since it burnt down. So naturally the big kid in me went crazy on the 10p machines... even if I did only win a maoam bar which was most likely over 12 years old errrr nice! 

I got my biker coat just before Christmas (I do remember telling you all of this short-lived obsession...oops)  however, before the festive season I had searched and searched for one, until just my luck I found one in M&S, the last place I thought it would be. Worn with a classic stripey tee -  my super old Longchamp backpack and my new found jegging love - yep, funnily enough M&S too! I normally stick to Topshop jeans as I know they fit me perfectly, yet hearing all the rave reviews for  M&S jeggings being compared to the Topshop Leigh jeans I thought I'd give it a whirl! Cheaper and thicker, without even trying them on, I bought them and can safely say, they all fit like a dream. I still love the good old toppyshoppy ones but they're one to try out for sure!

Winter Florals

What & Where  

Coat - Topshop / sold out 
Jumper - Zara
 Glasses  - c/o Myoptique
Belt - Urban Outfitters / old
Skirt - ASOS
Boots - Topshop
Bag - The Cambridge Satchel Company

Opening that wardrobe door and choosing an outfit for the day is somehow quite a challenge with this on/off - rain/cold/sun weather we're having at the moment but somehow my midi skirt is a no brainer! Tights or without tights, pumps, trainers or boots it finally seems appropriate to wear florals in the crappy weather - hell yeaaaa, thank god for winter florals! I bought this as a little treat to myself before christmas, to wear to my cousins wedding but didn't even end up wearing it but I have no regrets buying it, mainly for the colours, perfect for winter and spring...even summer!

Finally having that one day of sun, I couldn't wait to wear my London Retro Bailey Lt Tort sunglasses from Myoptique. Oh my, what a beautiful range it is. Very kindly they let me choose a London Retro pair either as prescription or sunglasses...sunnys all the way in my case, I just can't wait for summer & i've already got glasses that are prescription so it kinda made sense to get the sunglasses! But hey, guess what, Myoptique are letting one of my readers win a pair of London Retro prescription glasses or sun glasses of their choice! Worth £79 its a pretty good deal. Stay tuned, will host my giveaway this Sunday!!! So for now take a peek at their website here and go see what London Retro glasses you'd like.

Valentines Gift Guide For - Him

What & Where?

1. Tommy Hilfiger Boxers - Asos £24.00 - Because he's allowed an underwear set as well on Valentines Day too yaa know. These printed boxers come in a great little valentines packaging which makes the pressie extra special! Even if it is a box.

2. Creepy Creature Mug - Etsy £12.59 - Okay, I think these are the coolest mugs I have ever seen. These mugs will make you want to finish off that last gulp of tea! With other creepy creatures to choose from, such as spiders, skulls and even a shark, these will always be a winner.

3. 'We're good together' Chocolate Bar - Not on the high street £10.00 - Not only do these Chocolate bars look good together but they are to share - when I say share...ONE EACH! Why break that Dairy Milk bar down the middle when you can have your own valentines chocolate bar!

4. Hot Stuff Grow your own Chilli's - Bouf £4.99 - How to tell a guy he's hot stuff? errr just get him a chilli plant of course... Actually I think this is a pretty awesome gift, men don't really do valentines gifts so this one is perfect instead of those tradish 'Roses.' 

5. Cushion - Ohh Deer £35.00 - Every man needs a 'bloke' cushion! These unique 
beardy cushions are a great to liven up your home and add an quirky illustrated face to your sofa!
