YESTERDAY

HEY BLOG HUNNIES!

Its another HAWT day here in London and yesterday I was out enjoying it to the fullest! 
I started work at 7.30am, and usually I go home to sleep, but I just couldn't miss out on such a lovely day! 

"Heres what I looked like yesterday!"
The skirt, denim waistcoat, belt and sunglasses are all from Primark, the white tee is an old H&M item, my sandals are from Faith, headscarf from Bik Bok, necklace is from Accessorize and my gold cuff is from a market stall in Portugal. 


Hope you all got to enjoy the sunny weekend, fingers crossed it stays! ^_^

ANYWHERE BUT HERE...

Hello hunnies, hope you all have been having a great week!
 The sun has been out in London recently (yaaaaaaay!) but I haven't been able to enjoy it, I'm hoping the weather will hold out til the weekend, I may chill in the park with some friends :)

I've been on a mission for a while...a job hunting mission...and let me tell you...it aint easy :(
Hours of searching turns into hours of wasted time and what was once an enthusiastic spirit becomes a broken one *sigh* I have been really frustrated lately and its beginning to show at work sometimes. I just resent being there. Don't get me wrong I love my friends at work tbh their the only thing that get me through the day, but the constant early starts and monotonous work really drains my energy. I want OUT!
But at the same time I give God thanks for the provision of work, I'm sure the unemployment life would be a lot worse.

As you can imagine I could really do with a holiday, I unfortunately don't have any planned this year, I really wanted to make a go of saving, but even thats proving difficult.

Oh hunnies its been a baaaaaaaaaad week.

Looking back on my holiday pictures I took in Egypt...such a beautiful place the pics bring back very good feelings :) 
I always get a big bolt of uplifting energy when I am holiday, the sun, sea and free,
Maybe I could plan something before the years up anywhere but here lol...

Just One Of Them Days...That A Girl Goes Through

I'm noticing a regular pattern of sunday posting HMMMM.... well Sunday happens to be my ONLY day of rest so I guess I subconsciously grab the opportunity to blog...and why not eh? 

I have not been feeling well this week and work drained all my energy but hey thats life right!?! Saying that though I am in need of a holiday, spa weekend just something to break up the monotony and give my body a rest. Ive always wanted to go to Paris so maybe I could combine the two!? *Note to self* "Start looking ASAP!"

Today has just been "One of them days..." felt abit slow and unmotivated so I just decided to give into the feeling and spend the day perusing the internet. I love coming across blogs I've never read before it gives me fuel to continue blogging and inspiration for my next posts. Heres a few I came across today:

For Fashion&Beauty


For Shopping: Jewellery

Rings & Tings
Dolly Bow Bow

Also came across two clothing websites Aqua by Aqua and Virgos Lounge, I'm loving these items!

Klum Chain Print Jumpsuit by Aqua by Aqua : £56.00
Alexa Sheer Lace Maxi Dress by VirgosLounge : £44.99
I absolutely love the shape of the maxi dress, I'm looking for one in a more brighter summery colour with a more open maxi skirt that starts at the waist rather than the navel, I just don't seem to be able to find it anywhere (they do exist, I'm not crazy lol)....may DIY it.


To cheer myself up I bought myself some shoes! :) Shoes are my therapy lol.
With the craze around creepers came the follow up appearance of FLATFORMS
I admit I'm not crazy in love with creepers, I do like them just don't think they like me lol, so flatworm sandals seem to be my better alternative. Shopping around I came across these from ebay:


                                                      
                       
                                                             Ebay Open Toe Wedge FlatForms : £17.99 + 3.49PP



I really like the nude, black and dusky pink ones. Maybe payday I may just invest! But I probably won't because I found a pair on the H&M website on SALE! WHOOP!

For only £14.99 I am a very happy shopper :) can't wait for them to arrive! Ive never actually bought shoes from H&M so I hope I got the sizing right! Thinking of adding a few studs around the ankles and toe opening to rock them up abit for summer! You can find them here!

Well guys thats your lot for today, what did you get upto this weekend?

Love L x

SUNDAY LIVING

Ive really wanted some acid wash jeans, scouring the internet and shops to no avail, but today while getting ready to go to church I decided to wear something casual and to my surprise after rummaging around for some bottoms in the corner of my wardrobe laid my old Lee Jeans I got from Urban Outfitters about 2/3yrs ago! 

 Casual and simple seem to be my go-to style at the moment, I think it has something to do with the horrible weather we've been having. Its nearly summer but the rains not letting up anytime soon and even though I'm desperate for some sunny weather I won't be stepping out in shorts just yet! But to give it a push of encouragement I rolled the bottoms of my jeans legs and wore my gorgeous H&M scarf to give my outfit some colour.

Vest(Underneath): New Look
Blazer: H&M
Jeans: Old Lee Jeans from Urban Outfitters
