A High Street Shopping Experiment | Where The Nice People Are Round 2

Yonks ago, back in what feels like the blogging dark ages, I wrote a blog post about where the nicest shopping experiences were to be had.  Just as a little experiment to show appreciation for the friendly people who make your day that bit nicer.  And yesterday I decided 3 years down the line to do High Street Experiment Round II, with different shops, and see where had the friendliest staff and who made for the nicest experience as a…

wear more red – H & M Coachella top

Brunette girl with blue eyes

H&M Loves Coachella – the nearest I’m gonna get to the real thing for a long time!  Thanks to the wonders of the internet I’m actually in a physics exam as this one hits the blog, so yeah, couldn’t really be more different.  Let’s just pretend I was totally at Coachella in these photos though.  In fairness England did gift us a few hours of sunshine yesterday after a thoroughly grim bank holiday weekend, so we’re getting there!  What’s a…

i caved

I caved.  I bought the cat print shorts.  It was the third time they’d called my name from the H&M shelf and I was powerless, ok?  (Humour me).  Seriously though, shorts with cats on!!!!  OK so they’re about the least serious item of clothing EVER so maybe seriously is a poor choice of word, but whatever.  Cat shorts.  Novelty factor hooked me.  Maybe I need to grow up.  They’re tailored cat shorts though with pleats and pockets and a well-fitting…

on wednesdays we (don’t) wear…

Backlit portrait of teen girl wearing bright pink patterned shirt. Green grass and fence in background.

There was a time when I would downright refuse to wear pink.  Or frills.  Or anything girly for that matter.  My parents never tried to force pink, frilly girly clothes onto me, but I suddenly refused to wear half the clothes I already had.  I was 8 or so at the time, I do believe.  This was my ‘grey phase’.  I’d only wear the most boring androgynous of clothes.  And throw a tantrum about it. Pretty hard to believe now,…

Teen girl wearing aqua coloured 60s patterned skirt from Top Shop

Meet ma new fave skirt. 🙂  I’d been eyeing it up in Topshop for a while (as creepy Topshop stalkers like myself do), umm-ed and ahh-ed over it for a while, then eventually caved in and got the goddamn skirt.  Who needs practical clothes!  Nice to inject a bit of life into your wardrobe with more statement items sometimes.  Florals for spring and that.  ‘Basics’ can get kinda boring after a while; even I can get sick of all white. …

Patriotic or what today!   Red white and blue is hardly the most original combination but works every time.  Red lipstick seems to switch on super-smiley mode too haha, cheesy grins all round!  I love cheeky vintage-y styles. 😀 top: Primark | jeans & shoes: New Look Loving these little bardot cropped tops from Primark!  Always one or two items every season that are worth having in a couple of colours.  Primark are good with that kind of thing. These are…

over or under?

Overdressed or underdressed, which is better?  ‘What to wear’ dilemmas.  One of those #firstworldproblems.  Cue the texting to find out what everyone else is wearing beforehand, deciding whether heels are a go-er haha.  We’ve all done it!  I’d rather be slightly overdressed and look like I put in a bit too much effort rather than not enough though, in most cases.  Any excuse to wear a cute dress and heels, not gonna lie!  Seemed about right for a girly night…
