'Top 10 Current Obsessions'

Currently Coveting Over... 


I've been umming and ahh-ing over this bag for sooo long, and when I say long like over two years! Now that I have finally decided to go for it, the GGH is now being d/c. Booohooo!
Seems like it's sold out in Europe and only available in the US so I am waiting for my friend bring one back when she visits Vegas next month - fingers crossed they will save me one!


A classic item that I have been meaning to buy but never got round to it be due to money constraints or timing. Now that I have my holiday booked and earning $$$, will definitely be picking up a pair soon!


Currently coveting over this baby as well...not usually a Prada fan as I find their designs a bit boring however I have fallen for this one for its 'Hermes' esque' classic style! LOVE!

Just can't decide whether I want to go for the classic black, or go for the caramel....


The new 'IT' bag currently seems to be the Celine luggage or the 'sad robot' bag as some like to call it...

Gorgeous, gorgeous gorgeous!

5. Isabel Marant High-Top Trainers

Never in my life have I been a fan of wearing trainers, unless they were Keds or Converse, however when I saw these high tops with a hidden wedge - I immediately fell in love! 

The luxe sport trend is definitely a marmite kinda thing - you either love it or hate it! With a hefty price tag of £400 for a pair of these babies, I've picked myself out a high-street version from River Island at a much more affordable price!


LOVING the hot neon trend currently and with the blazer trend going strong; all you need to do is add a splash of bold colour to brighten up the rainy days!

Throw over a simple white shirt or pair with skinny jeans for a super hot look! I'm in search of a yellow neon blazer at the moment but just can't seem to find the right yellow- Zara has an amazing one however seems to edge more towards neon green -.-


Really excited to get my hands on some neon yellow nail polish...add to my neon obsession! Illamasqua and Essie are the two brands I want to try most as I have read good reviews on them! =)


8. YSL Teint Resist Foundation

Looking to change my foundation and I'm eager to try out the YSL Teint Resist. I'm constantly in search of a HG foundation that will stay put all day, covers up imperfections as well as being non-oily for my skin.

 I've read good things about this and can't wait to try it out! Shame that it costs over £30!

9. Vaseline Rosy Lips

Currently my fave lip balm, I nicked this from my mama's draw last weekend when I was home after leaving my usual Carmex in London. Boy was I surprised by how much I loved what I thought was just a 'typical' tin of Vaseline. With almond oil, this is extra nourishing on the lips and left a lovely soft pink tint. 



Uber excited to go away in a few weeks time. We chose Valencia as it allows us to have both a city and beach holiday at the same time. With some gorgeous beaches near the main city of Valencia where we will be staying, I can stroll to top up my tan and then head out in the evening for some shopping and partying ;)

Hope you had fun reading, see you next time! <3

Gold Rush


Hey everyone, hope you all had a lovely weekend! The weather was so beautiful and sunny, yet come Monday it is already gloomy and wet. I had an amazing weekend doing what I love most - shopping! You can never beat a day out on Oxford Street amongst the busy crowds on a warm sunny day! ;) The boyf did not seem to agree however...! Since he is away for a few days, thought I would start up on my blog posts again...and begin with one of my favourite things - accessories!

When I was younger, my fave colour jewellery was definitely and HAD to be silver. However, the past few years I have been obsessed with gold, gold and more gold. This weekend, I gave in to more gold jewellery whilst out!

I absolutely adore bangles and cuffs as it adds so much edge and statement to any outfit. These are a few of my faves! The intertwined one is from HK and cost me only $20!!! Next time I am there I am going to top up on more jewels as you can buy the same thing there that would cost £10-£20 here.

The watch-link style bracelets in rose gold and gold/yellow were a few I picked up this weekend. Love the colours on these! My fave in my collection at the moment are the cuffs on the right with the hanging chain which look so cute stacked together. 

Can't wait to wear this what I'm calling the 'mayor' inspired necklace! Such a statement piece which will add a bit of chique to a minimal outfit. Also picked up the layered link bracelet (also features on the 1st image) on the far left, which creates fab texture with its thin chains intertwined with the chunky links. Both are from H&M.

Gold is perfect for summer so I can't wait for it to get warmer to showcase all the bling ;)

Thanks for reading guys, have a great evening.

Life as it is right now...

I never seem to have enough time or should I say 'energy' after a long tiring day at work to write on here....but whenever I do, it's always a lot of fun and I want to make it me often!

In our busy society today, people put too much pressure on themselves in everyday life and me myself - I am exactly one of those individuals! Maybe it is true when they say that girls always set themselves too high expectations and at the same time are the ones who are always disappointed when these goals are not reached. Though I do believe that you should have aspirations, goals and dreams. Life isn't always about striving to be the best, rich and successful etc etc however doing things that make you happy - you only live once as the saying goes!

Since the last few years, I have really learnt to appreciate what I have, the people around me more and I think that has also come with age. Getting older has definitely changed the way I think and perceive life. I used to be a think ahead, plan plan plan, and am a 'always think of the consequences' kind of girl, however recently I just want to enjoy today for today and try not to think so ahead (though I am still like that in some things!).

With a new job, new place and new lifestyle this year, my life has definitely changed and I see myself getting closer to reaching my goal, both personally and professionally. Having been through so many ups and downs, I am a strong believer of  'all things happen for a reason' even if the reason is unexplainable or unjustifiable. There will never be an answer for everything, and sometimes we have to accept that...maybe we will never know.

I am looking forward to what this year will bring and it is definitely a stepping stone to the future, especially in terms of career. Landing a role as an health and beauty buyer is a blessing in disguise; I am looking forward to my next adventure as a result of this experience. It is true what my parents have taught me - you need to work hard for what you want - and I intend to do so!
"The only place where success comes before work is a dictionary." 
Wise words! Unless you win the lottery that is...until next time...take care! <3
