GLASSES | TOP | JACKET | PINAFORE | TIGHTS | BOOTS
Ahh it feels like It’s been absolutely forever since I’ve done an outfit post in any shape or form, which is weird because I’m been buying more and more clothes meaning I have enough for endless amounts of fashion posts . . .
I am completely in love with the whole rock/grunge kind of look at the moment (and have been since I was probably nine) so the fact that it’s actually fashionable now is fab! I’m not sure why you can’t really tell but I am wearing fishnet tights in this outfit which I love, the only thing I don’t love about it is the fact they catch on everything making them rip like a bitch.
It’s actually starting to feel more warmer and like Spring now which means I can actually go out (almost) bare legged and in just a jacket without feeling like I’m going to catch hyperthermia. I just love everything about this outfit from the Docs to the glasses – is it weird that I took off my real glasses and put in my contacts just so I can wear fake ones? I think it is a little bit.
Even though I haven’t seen that much of the Pinafore trend this year I still love them and could wear them all year round, I mean they’re a mix between a skirt and a dress and they make you look super cute no matter how rough you might actually feel.
These are my first ever pair of Dr Martens after wanting a pair for years and they certainly won’t be my last. I got the Virginia ones because of the super soft leather making them easier to break in, plus I love how they look when they’re fully laced. I have such a narrow foot and skinny ankle that these actually fit, plus makes any outfit that bit more ‘edgy.’
Even though I do love wearing my contacts as you probably know by this post, I do still love wearing eye glasses. I love being lazy wearing either no makeup or very minimal makeup, hair chucked up and glasses on. Sometimes I think glasses can even make an outfit, they really can change the frame of your face and how you look – they even hide my under eye bags half of the time which is great!
I got these Frederick Round* £25.31 glasses in black because they’re really similar to a pair I already have in the house but don’t wear simply because of the fact they’re way too big for the size of my head.
I was a bit scared ordering these online because I’ve never actually ordered a pair of glasses online before so was a bit unsure whether they would actually suit me, will they look different or even be the right prescription. Luckily they came and looked just like they did on the website, suited me and are the right prescription – meaning I can actually see!
You can buy your glasses either on their own without any lenses or you can get a package deal which includes the lenses, case, cleaning cloth and a anti-scratch coating which is what I went for. I mean it’s always better to have that extra protection isn’t it? The case it comes in is just a simple clear case which is ideal if you have more than one pair of glasses and want to know which one you’re actually grabbing.
I’ve actually fallen in love with these glasses and they’re cheaper than my normal specsaver ones, plus they fit my face with is a winner. Since wearing them I’ve gotten loads of compliments and I’m surprised with how easy it is to buy glasses online.

I miss my childhood, I miss being young, having no worries and not having to pay bills (can I get a amen to that.)
There’s loads of things that remind me of my childhood from turkey twizzlers to wallace and gromit so I’m going to share a few things that takes me back to the good ole days . . .
I always used to have loads of fashion catalogues as a kid and would just browse through them for hours on end imaging what I would look like wearing them. Actually there was loads of magazines that I loved when I was younger including More magazine, does anyone else remember that?!
One thing that I hate about Jamie Oliver is that he got rid of turkey twizzlers and they was the best thing that I’ve ever eaten in my life so when I had to go the dinosaurs I was kind of dissapointed. Don’t get me wrong they’re still absolutely amazing but they’re no turkey twizzler are they?
Okay, okay. I still eat these now but I lived on these as a kid and even now I’m still addicted to them being burnt.
Only fools and horses
I grew up watching this with my dad near enough every night and when I go down back to Wales every year I still watch it all the time with him. I’m not sure if this is something that reminds me of my childhood or just of my dad but either way it makes me happy.
This was the programme of my childhood, so much so that even my cousins tag me in the episodes on Facebook all the time because I was obsessed! I’ve tried watching it recently but it just kind of freaks me out now . . .
This one would explain why I used to have an email called groovychickisme . . . I used to have a completely groovy chick’d bedroom floor to ceiling, I collected the magazine even when the price went straight up. I just loved everything about it and I have no idea why, I didn’t even like the colour purple that.
I love online shopping, I can’t help it. One thing that I love more than actually online shopping is online ‘window’ shopping and that would be to do with the fact that usually I don’t have money to spend online.
I just love going online to a website, usually one that’s a online only store such as boohoo and just putting everything that I like the look of in my basket and then checking it after I’ve gone through the whole website and crying to myself about how much money I wished I had to purchase the 100 pairs of shoes that I definitely don’t need.
One thing that I love about online shopping is the fact that a website is basically a online catalogue, it reminds me of the Argos catalogues that you had when you was a kid and just circle everything you wanted. That’s basically me overtime I go online but instead of circling something, I’m just popping ‘add’ and them crying about the total because I don’t have mammy or daddy buying me it for Christmas about 10 months early.
I also love the fact that you can always see, well usually see what they look like on since they show them on models. But usually they do only show them on models that look nothing like me so they do usually look completely different on myself but nether the less, I still love online shopping.
Does anyone else have a sense of joy just online window shopping and not buying anything? Please say you do so I don’t feel like an absolute idiot for having such a fun and weird hobby. I mean I just don’t understand why I like browsing a online catalogue as much as I do, I know I said that it was because it reminds me of when I was younger but still.
I’m a massive Halloween fan and I think that’s one of the things everyone knows about me, I start getting excited for Halloween in probably about June whether it’s thinking of new makeup ideas or if it’s looking at some new jewellery pieces so seeing these Mismatched Skull Earrings* (£22) by Dose Of Rose I kind of fell in love.
I’m not going to lie when I say that usually when I see earrings where the one ear doesn’t match the other I don’t like them, I’m not sure why I just don’t apart from this pair. I think it’s because these ones even though they’re mismatched they look like they’re meant to be together it that makes any sense? The one ear is a little skull stud while the other ear is three small skulls dangling down and the fact that they’re all rose gold with some black detailing on them gives them a really nice Halloween feel, but not too much that you couldn’t wear these all year round.
As always I absolutely love the packaging that comes with everything from Dose Of Rose, I love how they always make sure everything they sell is beautifully packaged which makes it a real treat to receive, so much so that I didn’t even want to open it! The fact that you actually get a cute little card on the inside with all of their details on and on the other side it says ‘Hello Beautiful’ is really sweet, it actually made my day when I opened it and saw it.
One thing that I do really love about these earrings is the fact that they’re not heavy in the slightest, I always find that there’s nothing worse than having a pair of earrings that feel like they’re weighing you down. For me it does take a little while to actually get used to the fact one is longer than the other especially when you move your head because one ear has something swinging then the other is just still, but that’s just me and overall I do really love these Earrings!
