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…

Topshop Birthday Dress 2.0 & A Mini Epiphany About The ‘Busy Life’

Evenin’ evenin’.  All going well this post *should* pop up whilst I’m in Hamburg, but all going well I *should* be asleep right now before going to Hamburg so we’ll see!  Alarm’s set for 3:30am (lord have mercy) and my body clock’s doing that really cool thing where it’s decided 10pm is a great time to be awake the night before.  It’s really screwing me over lately, this damn body clock.  Practically sleepwalking around Sainsbury’s at 1:30pm but wide awake…

summer feels | a 60s print skirt

In case you couldn’t tell, these snaps were a Majorca outfit – just in case the palm tree doesn’t give it away.  I like to match my skirts to the background, you see.  They’re also the ones that resulted in an emergency McDonalds for dinner, because we’d faffed around taking outfit snaps instead.  All fun and games until you don’t realise what time it is and get to dinner just after the door closes.  Nothing says #thatglamblogger life like emergency…

can’t imagine life without | the stuff that makes things better

— Blogging.  Duhh.  Wednesday’s #lbloggers chat asked how long we thought we’d be blogging for, and my answer was a resounding ‘forever’!  First of all – what the bloody hell would I do with my time?  I invest so much time into writing, shooting, emailing, prepping my blog for the future that I’d have hours left in my day that I wouldn’t know what to do with.  Really can’t imagine not sharing my life on the internet, either.  It’s coming…

body on me | Top Shop bodysuit

Nothing new that I’m slightly obsessed with bodysuits!  You’d think I’d have added another couple to my collection already based on the amount I’ve banged on about them, but nope – just this one so far.  Unless you count my old ballet leotard.   Haven’t found any others that fit yet!  #Tallgirlproblems strikes again.  A too-short bodysuit ain’t a pretty sight.  Literally feels like you’re trying to squish into a child’s babygrow.  Sexy.  So instead of a ‘3 favourite bodysuits’ post,…

End of season Topshop sale scores are fine by me!  I’ll find a way to make maxi dresses wintery so we’re good. 🙂 Well, when I say ‘maxi’ I actually mean ‘supposedly maxi’ or ‘maxi on most people and shin length on me’, but potAYto potAHto, same thing.  Shin length is good too.  Avoids the swishing round your ankles tripping danger that usually comes with longer lengths.  Or is that just me?  Anyway, I tried this one on and loved the fit so much…

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. …
