Down Town!!

Stole an extra day off today - well did work till midnight last night... So, what to do. Naturally after watching the Australian Open Final - I went shopping with my bf! Although, the pics show my original outfit I added a Top Shop cape and gloves as it was so cold. I am coveting lots of items at the moment but only bought myself some earrings from Top Shop. Top and Jeans are Zara, Scarf (as belt) and shoes from H and M and jacket is Miss Selfridge. Bracelet is handmade - as present from my Aunt. Hat a present from my Mum (not sure where she got it from).

I will post a list of must haves shortly....

Too much pudding....

These shots were taken before a close friend took me and my bf out for a lovely meal at Prezzo - they do the best sticky toffee pudding ever - I felt so sick but in a good way!!!

I dressed in anticipation of eating well - so shirt and jeans from H and M, blazer is Top Shop and ballet pumps from Top Shop too - I love ballet pumps - I need more of them. Also wearing my favourite necklace from Jesophi - a gorgeous little cupcake....

And a special guest appearance from my biggest and badest cat Djoko... looking rather alarmed and embarrassed about being on camera!!!!

I'm wearing a Top Shop sweater, cut down (very old) Top Shop jeans, Miss Selfridge tights, H&M shoes, vintage blazer and a hat from Warehouse (about 4 years old)..... necklace is a gift from a lovely family friend. It is a vintage gold penny...

Fashion Bananas

Fashion Bananas' blogger Delmy is the epitome of everyday style. Her vulnerability and inspirational statements - not to mention her awesome shoe collection make her the perfect style icon for the every day girl but she successfully integrates an edginess. Delmy is really anything but every day because her personality really stands out and I found myself wanting to log into every day to make sure she was happy!!! And to check what colour eyeshadow she would be wearing!!

Have it, wear it, love it

This is such a great line from one of my favourite Etsy Shops: Jesophi. I love Etsy soooo much, their philosophy and the wonder and care and pride that all the sellers display. There are soo many stunning items for sale, I find new shops each day, but i would like to start posting a few of my very favs. Enjoy and go and check them out!!

Jesophi creates such lovely, original, beautiful jewellery - her attention to detail is great and her creativity never ceases. I bought a cupcake necklace and the quality of the service I received was incredibly impressive. Thank you Jesophi - the only problem I have is deciding what to buy!!! I have my eye on the Hugh Bow (third photo).

Check out Jesophi's other website:

What Katie Wore

The most romantic blog out there as I tuned in every day to see What Joe Wrote about What Katie Wore! Katie likes to stand out from the crowd - far, far out!!! Her amazing sense of style wowed me and made me wish I was this confident. Her attention to unique details, shoes, accessories and bags is wonderful. A classic British blog - full of life, humour and wine!!!

My Fav Blogs

I would like to thank the following ladies for their incredible styles, personalities, commitment and willingness to share themselves. Your blogs have inspired me, made me laugh, made me cry, made me think and made me see a bigger world.

Firstly is Karla's Closet. This lady completely owns her style, she isn't afraid to lead the fashion blog pack with grace and a fearless love of clothes - every outfit she wears is quirky, original and utterly Karla. I love how her style has evolved and grown with her but remained true to herself. Very inspirational.

My first blog!!

I spent 2009 discovering blogs and the wonderful people I followed and enjoyed each day have finally inspired me to begin my own blog. My life is very busy and I am very driven to succeed. I sometimes feel that, although exciting and incredibly fulfilling, my life is narrowly focused. Blogs helped my reconnect with other peoples lives and see the many different paths we can take in life. Blogs became a fabulous story for me to follow.

My first few posts are going to be a collection of my favourite blogs as a way to thank these wonderful ladies for the light they bring to me evenings.....

I love fashion. My style is down to earth, everyday style but I want to use this blog to develop my style and use other blogs to experiment with my look. I am quite nervous about posting pictures of myself.....

I would also look to post my favourite things each week - clothes, Etsy, ebay, books, clothes, other's blog posts. I hope you find it interesting...

Well lets go....
