Life update #3.

Hello lovelies! So sorry I've been a little MIA recently but I've been pretty busy over Christmas, I spent the morning with my family then I spent a couple of days at my boyfriends parents. I got spoilt rotten! I may do a post of what I got soon :) I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!

I can't wait for you all to see what I have to post in 2013! How fast has that come around?! On the 1st I will have been with my boyfriend for 3 years, its so crazy! He bought me the cutest set from Lush for our anniversary. I've used it already and it smelt devine! I cannot wait to buy more Lush products, if anyone has any recommendations be sure to leave me a comment.

Anyway, I think I'm rambling now so I shall leave the update there. I hope you all have a wonderful NYE and beginning of 2013! I shall be posting a very late Sunday wishlist ASAP, I haven't had the time recently and my old laptop is so bad. I'll also be posting an Instagram post soon.

Love Alex xo

Sunday Wishlist #27.


I am so excited about this wishlist! This week I found one of the best ebay sellers, Hidden Fashion. All thanks to the lovely Robyn Mayday! It's so cheap! They have creepers for around £13, also disco pants for around £9! I'm a little sceptical about the quality but all their items look okay to me! I am again in need of jumpers of I still haven't bought any because of Christmas. The 2 are above would be perfect to just throw on and wear with disco pants and Vans. I am also in dire need for a new phone case, the one I have at the moment is White with multi-coloured flowers, I love it but it gets dirty very easy. A Red polka dot case is right up my street and the price is lovely too!

If you haven't noticed I haven't had a blog of the week for couple of weeks as I just haven't been able to stick to it.

I hope you all have WONDERFUL Christmas! I actually cannot believe how close to Christmas we are, It still doesn't feel Christmassy to me but I'm hoping that will change once I'm home.

NYE dresses for £30 or under.....

Hello sweeties! NYE is less than 2 weeks ago so I thought I'd show you my favourite dresses for £30 or under for NYE. I have been prepared for about 2 weeks and I'm so glad it's sorted haha, I hate rushing at the last minute to get an outfit together. My lovely boyfriend bought me the beautiful Tenzin dress from Missguided for our upcoming anniversary, it came to just under £20. It's amazing quality and can work for any occasion. Anyhoo enough of my rambling, here are my top 10 picks (all picks excluding p+p charges)!


I love my picks as they're all different and I hope there is something for everyone. My favourite is number 3, purely for the collar. How adorable?!

Which dress is your favourite and would you wear for NYE?

The Christmas tag.

I've been meaning to do the Christmas tag for a while but I keep forgetting to save the questions but while I had nothing to do tonight (other than watch come dine with me) I thought i'd search for the questions and have a go.

1. What is your favourite thing about Christmas?
I love the whole build up to Christmas, I love trawling the shops/internet looking for presents for my loved ones and I love going into town to look at the lights, they're probably my favourite thing about Christmas. They're so beautiful, its unreal.

2. What is your favourite make-up look for Christmas?
I don't really change my make-up look for Christmas, I've never been good at applying make-up haha. If i did i'd probably do a smokey eye and nude lips to go out.  I never go out on Christmas day other than being picked up by my boyfriends parents.

3. Real or fake tree?
My family has never had a real tree so I'll go with a fake tree. I would love a real tree when I have my own place but they seem a lot more work than they're worth.

4. Giving or receiving presents?
Giving! I love seeing friends/families faces when they see what I've bought them. I always love seeing my boyfriends face on Christmas, I always buy him the best presents haha.

5. Do you open presents on Christmas morning or evening?
Both! I open presents with my family in the morning then in the evening I go to my boyfriends and open presents from him and his parents.

6. Handmade cards or shop bought?
I would love to make Christmas cards but I'm really not crafty enough. I love shop bought anyway, they've had some of the cutest I've seen in a long time this year.

7. What's your favourite Christmas film?
I love the Grinch! It's been my favourite for years, It always cheers me up when I'm feeling sad. I also love The Nightmare Before Christmas and Love Actually. 

8. What is your favourite Christmas food?
TURKEY! I adore Turkey smothered in gravy, I love pigs in blankets too!

I tag anyone who would like to join the festive fun!

Instagram diaries - November and 1st December.

1. bedtime attire, channeling my inner John Cena haha; 2. the cutest birthday card I have ever bought for my best friends mum; 3. feeling festive; 4. Adventure Time nights are my favourite; 5. selfie; 6. guilty pleasure; 7. my first cupcake order for baby shower; 8. prettiest Christmas tree in town; 9. missing my Purple hair; 10. beautiful tree's in the peace gardens; 11. complete regret for not ordering the police box leggings in the BM cyber sale; 12. Meadowhall Christmas decorations.

Hello lovelies! This post is very overdue, I've had a working instragram for over a month now and I've been meaning to do a post but thought my instragram may be a little boring but then I thought what the hell, I'll post it anyway haha. I thought I'd do my IG posts a little different and do them monthly. My November was pretty standard other than I had my first cupcake order which was pretty exciting and I'm so happy my cousins friend adored them! This months instagram will be much more exciting as it will include Christmas and NYE! I'm actually pretty excited for December to be over though as I can't wait to see what 2013 will bring, hopefully a job for myself will be included! On a different note I thought I'd tell you all that I reached 10,000 views overnight! Ahhh it made me so excited that I did a little dance, being a small blog with only 34 followers it means so much that people read and enjoy my blog.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your Monday!

Sunday Wishlist #26.


Hello lovelies! Another week has been and gone, and I forgot to put up my Christmas tag post :( it's now shedualed for Wednesday. I am in love with this wishlist! I'm not sure why I don't own a Red dress but I really want this one from Internacional, its a beautiful, lace and it has 3/4 length sleeves which makes Alex very happy! I adore the 2nd dress too, it's very Christmassy if you ask me. I'm in dire need of jumpers as I only have one to keep me warm and both above are the cutest i've seen. Who wouldn't want to walk around with bunnies or hearts on their chest?! I've been lusting after an infinity bracelet for a while and I've finally found one I love thanks to Kirsty! Etsy are great for jewellery and I can't wait to order the little beauty.

How excited are you all about Christmas?! I can't believe it's so close, eek! My christmas shopping should be done by Thursday and that can't come quick enough.

My new years eve outfit.

Hello sweeties! Here is a little sneak peek of what i'll be wearing on NYE, I love this outfit far too much. The dress is from my boyfriend as a christmas/anniversary present. I've wanted the belt for months after seeing it in Urban Outfitters but £18 for a belt was a little steep, the one I bought was from ARK and was just under £13, bargain! I've paired the outfit with creepers as I really didn't want to wear high heels as my feet would hurt all night, plus myself and my boyfriend are almost the same height.... I'll be using the bag I use everyday as I'm sticking to Black/Gold, pretty usual for me as I don't really like gold but the studs on the dress won me over. I have no idea how to accessorise the outfit but i'll probably add my scrabble ring and eyeball ring from Dainty Darko.

The outfit came in at around £55! I think it's pretty good as I'll get a lot of wear out of all the pieces and I actually cannot wait to wear this outfit. NYE can't come quick enough!

The Laine blogger award.

Hello lovelies! I was awarded the Laine award a while ago but was in two minds whether to post it as it's a beauty related award but as I haven't posted anything different in a while I thought this would be perfect. I was tagged by Shikin who also tagged me for my latest Leibster Award, THANK-YOU! I'm not really sure wha

The rules!
1. Tag the blogger who awarded you.
2. Answer the five questions below.
3. Award five bloggers the laine award with less than 100 followers.

Questions -
1. What is your current beauty obsession? I love MUA Mosaic blusher and I have for months, It's pretty subtle but perfect for any occasion.

2. What is one beauty item you wished you owned? Anything by MAC! I've never used any of their products but i've seen that a lot of bloggers love their products, I'd especially love to try their foundation. I'd also love to try Models Own nail polish, I did plan on buying some when they had their 50% off offer but I didn't have enough money :( their wonderland collection looks so great.

3. What is your favourite post to read or write about? I post mainly fashion and lifestyle and I love reading anything similar. I love reading about beauty too, I really struggle finding beauty products so I love reading about products I wouldn't normally use.

4. What inspired you to become a blogger? I really hate the term "blogger", I really don't think anyone should be called a blogger unless its their job but it was really my boyfriend who inspired me to blog. He started a blog for fun then I did the same, I had it for months with nothing on it then I began looking into fashion/lifestyle blogs and knew I wanted to do the same. My blog is nowhere near as good as any of the others I read but I really enjoy the style of my blog. It's very samey at the moment but I'm working on that, I just haven't had any money to buy anything hence why I haven't been posting outfit posts or anything like that. I hope my blog carries on into the new year and gets bigger and better.

5. What nail polish are you wearing now? I have a clear nail polish on at the moment to try and help my nails grow, I bite them (eww!) and I think the polish is from Avon. I can't be exact as the polish was part of a set from my boyfriends parents last christmas.

I Tag -
ANYONE! I know this might be a little bit of a cop out but I cant find anyone with less than 100 followers.

Sunday wishlist #25 and a little update.


Hello lovelies! Another week, another wishlist. I adore absolutely everything on the wishlist, I'm hoping for my boyfriend to buy me the beautiful missguided dress for our anniversary on the 1-1 but I'm hoping he lets me have it early to wear out on NYE. I am loving all things sparkly at the moment, the skirt is my favourite item. The colour is beyond beautiful. I have been lusting after some Lita dupes for a while but I never liked that they had a Brown heel and last night I finally found an all Black pair!

Sorry for the lack of updates (again!) but I've had a real mental blogging block. I have been awarded the Laine award and I'll be doing the Christmas tag so expect those post to follow in a couple of days. I really want to get back into outfit posts but I have so little money at the money because all my money has been going on Christmas presents on for my lovely family. I haven't bought myself anything in months not that I'm complaining though as I've bought some great gifts for family, I'll also be baking melting snowmen cookies and cupcakes too.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your Sunday and have a lovely week! I'll be attending the Christmas market at somepoint (post to follow).

Sunday Wishlist #24.


I have been at a real loss of what I wanted in a wishlist this week but I narrowed it down to a gorgeous boohoo dress and a few basics. I recently tried on a similar hat in tk maxx and I've been looking for a similar one since, a Black hat would be perfect but I have been eyeing up THIS little thing! How cute! I adore the peace and love shoes but they're a little pricey. How amazing is the Dolly Bow Bow collar too?! So glitzy.

Love Alex xo
