Posted on May 13, 2015

summer accessories wish list_edited-1

Hi Guys!

I had planned to start this post with the phrase ‘Summer is officially on it’s way…’ as it’s been quite nice here lately, but it’s actually chucking it down right now! Nevertheless, I can’t wait till the warmer weather arrives, I’m hoping to bust out the fake tan very soon! It’s also now officially less than a month till my birthday too – June 12th in case you want to add that to your diary – oh and chocolate would be very nice thank you 🙂 It’s my son’s birthday on the same day too so I’m now starting to get excited and make plans for both of us! I’ve put together a little wish list today with some gorgeous golden and metallic accessories that I’ve had my eye on lately. I love warm gold tones for summer so hopefully I’ll be able to snap some of these up when I get paid, and pop a few of them on my birthday list too!

    • Semi Precious Torque Collar (£15) from Topshop
    • Quay Modern Love Sunglasses (£29.63) from Nasty Gal
    • Hipanema Bonnie Bracelet (£79.31) from Revolve
    • Small Punk Skull Necklace (£260) by Alexander McQueen at Selfridges
    • Gold Plated Hoop Earrings by Eddie Borgo (£115) at Net-a-Porter
    • The Stud Out Mini Bucket Bag (29.63) from Nasty Gal
    • Frends Laya Rose Gold Headphones (£140) from Avenue 32
    • Holographic Robot Watch (£18) from ASOS
    • Ultra Mini Tre Pearl Band Ring ($365) from Vita Fede
    • Metallic Leather Sandal (£28) from Espirit

I hope you enjoyed my wish list! I’d love to hear if you love any of these accessories as much as I do?

A Personal Post, and Two New Outfits

Posted on March 30, 2015

Hi Guys,

I really want to say happy Monday! And be all cheery and full of sunshine for you. But already this morning I’ve woken up late, broken a nail and banged the side of my head getting into the car so I feel like I’ve been punched in the ear. Can I start again!?

Today I want to talk about some personal issues, and I want to be honest with you. I’ve been putting off / avoiding outfit posts more and more because I feel so self conscious of my size and weight. I’ve put on a massive chunk of weight (five stones in fact) over the last 18 months and it’s really knocked my confidence. I’ve been trying to think of how to share my thoughts and feelings about this, but it’s so hard to get the words out right, I keep writing this and re-writing this again and again, so I’m just going to go for it…

Basically I feel completely torn. On one hand I want to jump around in my favourite loud and colourful clothes whilst giving the world the middle finger. I want to say this is me, this is what I look like, and if you have a problem with that, then it says a lot more about you that it does me. But unfortunately as much as I want to, I don’t feel like that most of the time. Most of the time I want to hide away because I feel so self conscious. I don’t like the fact that my whole body wobbles when I walk. I don’t like feeling uncomfortable in my clothes, and in my own skin. It’s been really getting to me, but I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to accept myself as I am in order to start making positive changes… so here I am.

This is what I look like.

Will people judge me? Maybe. Do I care? I really want to say no, but I wouldn’t be writing this if that was the truth, so I do care a bit.

Even though I’m not feeling great about myself at the moment, I really want this post to have a positive message behind it. If you’re a size 8, 18 or 28. IT’S YOUR LIFE. It’s your body and your choice. If you’re big and want to lose weight, fantastic, do it! If you’re slim and unhappy and you want to gain weight – do it!

We all need to do what makes us happy, you can’t live your life worrying about what other people will think or doing as they expect. (see how I’m contradicting myself there) I find it quite cathartic writing this down so I’m hoping by the end of the post I’ll have made some sort of peace with myself.

In the above picture I’m wearing the Sheer Tears Sequin Dress Isolated Heroes, this is one of my favourite stores, expensive but they make everything by hand, and definitely worth every penny.

You couldn’t see my shoes very well through the grass so I’ve taken a separate photo of my shoes and accessories for you. I recently bought this Silver Gem Stripe Panel Clutch from New Look in the sale – a bargain at £10, and these gorgeous Rosalie Pose Sandals from Clarks Shoes will just be perfect for the coming warmer weather. My sunnies are from Nasty Gal.

So I’ve put on all this weight for various reasons; I’ve been suffering with anxiety and depression, but mostly depression. I’ve been comfort eating and feeling like I have no control over my habits. The situation I was in got to a point where I couldn’t carry on like I was, and I had to do something about it – so I did. I’ve now made certain changes in my life, so things should be on the up from now on. I’ve been wanting to cut out my bad habits and start a healthier lifestyle for a long time now, and that’s exactly what I’m now starting to do.

In this outfit my t-shirt is from Tein Clothing. I also bought a few others in their sale which I’m hoping to get into when I’ve lost some weight. Their prints are amazing!

The accessories for this outfit included a gold tone gem necklace from Nasty Gal, these amazing Silver Glitter Gem Tie Up Block Heels from New Look, they were £39.99 down to £22.00 – and yes they do actually match the bag above. And my old trusty Nasty Gal bag.

I’m sorry if any of this doesn’t make sense. I’ll have a post up shortly explaining what’s happened exactly and what my plans are moving forward. I do feel better for ‘coming out’ and getting this all off my chest though. I’m really looking forward to a new beginning xxx

The New Selfie – Shoe Selfies!!

Posted on April 4, 2014

Hi Guys!

I’ve recently realised I take quite a few shoe selfies on instagram, this is usually on days when I’m wearing awesome shoes, which I’d much rather show off than my face! I’m not really a fan of the traditional selfies, I only add pics of myself to instagram when I have an outfit post really, so I thought I’d show you some of my shoe selfies! If you have any shoe selfies make sure you tag them #shoeselfie and tag me in @tsncblog too, let’s make it a thing!!

So first up, my prized possessions – my amazing Topshop Argo boots I got for Christmas 🙂

I love these Cute to the Core Hi-Top Wedge Trainers from Nasty Gal! And my friend’s new Vans – you’d have thought we planned this to match but it was a total coincidence!

And a couple of my latest additions! These Dialog Plimsolls from ASOS are brighter than bright, I love them!

And lastly these Lily Patent Fuchsia Boots from ShoeZone are my newest pair!

Unfortunately I’m on a self-imposed spending ban for the whole of April, meh. So there will be no new shoe selfies this month I’m afraid! Maybe I’ll splash out next month or for my birthday in June 😉

I hope you enjoyed my post xxx

Amazing Nasty Gal Jewellery Sale Haul!

Posted on November 3, 2013

Hi Guys!

A couple of weeks ago Nasty Gal sent me an email called ‘Welcome to the Best Week Ever’ They were offering different deals on products for four days that week. This in itself isn’t overly special as stores have offers on all the time. But what did catch my eye was the first day’s ‘treat’ which was jewellery for $1 or $5! How crazy cheap and awesome is that! I stocked up on loads of gorgeous pieces and paid next to nothing for them! Take a look at what I bought –

(I’ve converted the prices to sterling below, the first price is the full value of the item, and what I paid is in brackets)

Electric Pyramid Necklace £15.58 (£3.12)

Screen shot 2013-11-03 at 09.29.36

Furies Spiked Necklace £12.46 (£0.62)

Screen shot 2013-11-03 at 09.31.30

Circuitry Necklace £21.81 (£3.12)

Screen shot 2013-11-03 at 09.33.19

Ice Ice Baby Bracelet £16.36 (3.12)

Screen shot 2013-11-03 at 09.35.22

Tough Identity Bracelet – Silver £12.46 (£0.62)

Screen shot 2013-11-03 at 09.37.22

Spiked Crystal Ring – Gold £7.48 (£0.62)

Screen shot 2013-11-03 at 09.38.52

Shaneva Collar Necklace £12.46 (£0.62)

Screen shot 2013-11-03 at 09.40.43

Double Arrow Necklace £12.46 (£0.62)

Screen shot 2013-11-03 at 09.43.32

Total Spend = £12.46 (+ £9.35 shipping) = £21.81

Full value of jewellery = £111.07

Total Saving = £111.07 – £21.81 = £89.26

These have to be the best bargains I have ever bought! 😀

I hope you enjoyed my post! xxx

Nasty Gal Neon Orange OOTD!

Posted on October 20, 2013

Hi Guys!

Today I have a quick OOTD to show you that I did last week. The weather has been terrible today so I haven’t had a chance to get today’s outfit photographed! Below I’m wearing one of my tops from my recent Nasty Gal sale haul. I love it! It’s proper neon highlighter orange, with awesome lacing detail and an exposed zip down the back.
