Hey guys! Sorry I've been slacking so much recently, our life is a little busy at the moment. Ben has now been working in york for almost a month, while I've been at home looking for somewhere to stay, We viewed two apartments yesterday and fell in love with the second, which you can see here! I am praying we get it, the price is just a little steep for us but we're going to try and negotiate. The skylights won it for me completely! Anyway enough about that, I'm excited which means rambling again. If you're interested in the Glamourous dress, please comment below.

Hello my loves! As you can tell from the title, today is my little blog's first birthday! How crazy is it that I've been blogging for a year?! I'm still a little rusty with blogging but I've gotten so much better since I started. I actually have no idea what I'd be doing right now If I hadn't discover blogging, I'm so grateful to all my lovely, lovely followers who have stuck around for a whole year! I'm not going to get too soppy but I adore the blogosphere and appreciate you all so much!

Sunday wishlist #46 - Topshop sale picks!


Hello sweethearts! Its that time again, wishlist time! This week I decided to show you my favourite picks from the Topshop sale, I very rarely buy anything from Topshop as I think it's ridiculously over priced! I've only ever bought anything when It's been in the sale but sale shopping can be so stressful, thank god for internet shopping! I've always been a fan of Topshop dresses, the Blue lace one is gorgeous! Everything else are just items I've seen in store and loved!

Time to go a little off topic, I know I've slacking a while and I can't apologise enough but hopefully my post on Tuesday will make up for that, be sure to check it out! 

Lots of love

Sunday Wishlist #45 - Summer dress edition.


Hello lovelies! It's sunday again, my week has been pretty stressful. I spent the week alone as my boyfriend just started a new job in York! So exciting but I'm hating being alone all week. I love being able to catch up on tv shows but I missed my man a hell of alot! Also sorry about the lack of posts (again!) I'll be back with more regular post soon, I have a little giveaway coming soon too!

As the weather has gotten warmer I've realized I have no summer clothes! What I had from last summer now does suit me or I just don't like them anymore! I've seen so many pretty dresses around but I whittled it down to my favourite 4. The first is a beautiful dress from Primark! I am loving that Primark is now available on ASOS, meaning I can now get them for a little cheaper with my boyfriends student discount. I've seen so many floral dresses around lately but this is my favourite, I love the that the flowers look like black and white photographed flowers. The second dress is from Tobi, I am loving similar prints of the dress at the moment! I love how simple the dress and it could easily be dressed up or down. I'd probably wear it with vans like everything else I wear! The third dress is from Missguided and its so cute! I love the colour and that's coming from someone who mainly wears Black! Like I said about the dress before I'd probably wear it with Vans and add some cute accessories. Finally the last dress is one I found a while ago from Ebay and I adore the print, Elephants seem to be everywhere at the moment. The cut-out details are probably my favourite from the dress, I'm not a fan of having my arms out but cut-outs show still show a little skin. All the dresses are below £20, including the dress from Tobi as all new customers get 50% off their first purchase.

I hope you've all had a lovely day and spoilt your dads rotten! Happy fathers day to all the dads out there. Sorry this post is late too!

Also my boyfriend has just got a job in York so I've been spending as much time with him as I can! We'll hopefully be moving in next couple of months which is all very exciting and scary at the same time! It has given me the opportunity to look for cute item though which is fun. We've been looking at a few places and we'll hopefully be getting somewhere with a bath with means lots of LUSH baths for me hehe. Anyway I'm rambling now....

Sunday wishlist #44.


Hello beauties, happy Sunday! It's June already, how crazy but the weather is FINALLY perking up but that can be a bad thing for someone who doesn't own many summer clothes! I have been window shopping for dresses, shorts, skirts and all things summery for a while but didn't really find much I liked until I saw this very pretty Red dress from River Island, it remind me lot of a print Motel have in at the moment! I also found the best dupe for Jeffrey Cambell Coltranes, I've ever seen! They're from a website called Tobi and they're £58 (they offer 50% off to all new customers, making them cheaper but they add customs too!). I adore the silver hardware on them so much, I also love their name - they're called the Rebel Scholar which definitely sounds like something you'd hear in Star Wars! Once they're back in stock I think I'll be picking up a pair. 

I definitely have a thing for skirts recently, I love the galaxy print skirt far too much. I've practically been living in my midi dress since I bought it and I really need alternatives. I only really like the skater skirt because it has an A on it haha. Finally a beautiful moon ring from Dixi and an expert face brush which I both need in my life NOW!

I hope you all enjoy the lovely weather we're having at the moment!
Lots of love Alex xox
