Lovely Newness

Well the last few days have been so much fun hence my posting absence. I finally graduated yesterday and it was a bit of an emotional day. Being surrounded by friends, family and of course Michael, I sad goodbye to my university life for the very last time. I donned a silly hat, shed a few tears and drank a few cocktails all whilst resembling an extra from Harry Potter. It was an amazing day and I am sure the memories will stick with me for ever. Hoping to share a few photos from the day on here, more for my own keepsake than anything else!Anyway on with the post!

Here is just a quick run through of what i have been spending my pennies on lately. If you find yourself popping into Topshop to have a little browse in the next few weeks, I would recommend finding one of these dresses. For £26 they are perfect. The cinch you in at the waist and flare out into a skater style skirt. The texture of the fabric is lovely and makes the dress look a lot more expensive than what you actually pay for it. I wore it for my boyfriends graduation on Thursday and I had a few lovely comments on the dress. I have seen them in black (another girl from my course also wore it to a graduation ceremony), a strong cobalt blue and this khaki. If you love the fit, then the version in black would be a good go to when you find you have nothing else to wear!

Tight are a must have in my wardrobe and you can get them in all kinds of styles and colours now, you don't have to settle for black opaques. I picked these babies up in Topshop for £8.50. They look like normal plain black tights from the front but have a sheer cross panel at the back that reaches the top of the leg. They add a little bit of detail to an outfit without being OTT or screaming look at me. A little quirky interest adds a lot to a plain dress. I teamed these up with my new dress and a pair of black shoe boots and I was ready to go!

On the way back from Manchester we stopped off at a service station to stretch our legs. And what did we find...A Krispy Kreme stand. Lets keep it to the point and say I just couldn't resist.

I have never been a huge eyeshadow fan and always tend to shy away from them. But after seeing so many different looks in magazines for the festive season I decided to cave in and buy a palette of my very own. After watching a few online beauty tutorials on the Topshop website, I purchased this Topshop smokey eye palette in Tawny. I will be testing it out soon and will be sure to share a few thoughts with you girlies.

Have you been buying anything nice recently that is set to be the blogging world's version of the next big thing??



  1. nice dress I liked your blog, I follow you!
    and if you like mine I hope you like pretty follower :) a kiss!

  2. Congratulations on your graduation! The dress seems to have such awesome detailing that I'm almost happy that I don't live near a Topshop; I've been on such a dress-buying binge lately (3 dresses in two weeks, and I only owned two skirts before!) that I fear it would have been a near-instant investment.

    Also: Krispy Kreme sounds like the best idea in the world. I haven't had a donut in AGES and I would give just about anything for a Krispy Kreme right now.

  3. Congrats on graduating! I love your dress, it is gorgeous! :)

  4. That dress is absolutely gorgeous! xxx

  5. Oooh, I love that dress! It's a great price for Topshop too.

    I'm so sad to say I've never had Krispy Kreme, I feel I'm missing out greatly! xo
