My new youtube channel - 'The Beauty Pursuit'

Hello guys!! Sorry I have not posted for a while, I've been so busy with final year, writing fashion articles and job applications - I'm hoping to get a job in fashion buying or merchandising :)

I've created a youtube channel, where I will be discussing beauty tips, fashion tips, trends, make-up tutorials etc.
Please check out my first ever video.

I hope you enjoy, I will be uploading more soon :)

Percival riding boot

Topshop Percival Strap Riding Boots
You better believe I searched high and low to get these boots. They flew off the shelves in stores and even sold out online. I knew my home town wouldn't let me down, they had one pair left in my size. Totally worth the £30 train ticket to get there from Lancaster and the endless phone calls to Topshop stores throughout the country. They have a suede panel that runs up the back of the shoe and the strap adds a uniqueness to an otherwise standard high knee boot. Double win.

Sale season

Topshop jewellery
It's that four letter word that makes us go crazy. Especially if the signs are all in red. They'll really grab my attention and then I know I'm in the high-danger-spending-zone. It's almost like a primal instinct - the desire to spend, spend, spend when we see the word 'SALE'. We quite literally shop 'til we drop (or more embarrassingly, until our card declines). I hit Topshop and as usual, Arcadia didn't fail to impress.

giving some love to my new baby xxxxxxxx

I accidentally spilt a chai latte on my laptop on Thursday and now it's no longer working :(. I will really miss my old one, it soldiered me through some of my toughest essays and during all of my university exams. As a replacement though, I decided to buy a mac. I am in love. How did I not praise apple products before??? It's pure performance, and nothing less.

sequin sin

Jumper; Vintage from Affleck's palace.
Isn't it pretty? Sorry I haven't posted for so long. But if there is anything worth breaking my silence for, it's finding those one-off purchases in vintage boutiques that make you go wow. It's even more thrilling when they're all in your size. Good jumpers deserve good homes and I know what jumper will be taking care of me this winter.

Topshop Shorts & jacket, Miss Selfridge earrings & heels, H&M sports bra

Breaking in some fantastic whites. I love this colour; I only wish it agreed with me more - so hard to keep clean! Other than that it's perfect - classy, fresh and 'oh so darling'!
