Sale Finds Series: Iconemesis

I’ve decided to do a small series on some of my online sale finds this month.
That means I’ll be posting mini-wishlists or recommendations from various online stores.
It’s quite simple really, if I find an amazing sale I want to be able to share it with everyone!
This seems like the easiest and also best (I enjoy making wishlists too much) way to do it.
My first ‘Sale Find’ is Iconemesis and their New Year Sale.

Iconemesis iPhone cases

What? iPhone 4/4S & 5/5S Cases
How much off? Up to 50%! Prices start at £10
Running until? Undisclosed
Iconemesis have been on the blog before and I love their store.
They sell iPhone cases which feature the works of artists/illustrators.
It’s such a simple and perfect idea that it’s no wonder I’m featuring them.
I choose to highlight some of the cases in their sale that really stood out to me.
With a starting price of £10 for most of the cases they’re a great deal.
What a great, cheap way to revamp your iPhone for 2014!

Photo Diary: It’s Christmas Time…

I know I’ve been a bit quiet the last
few weeks, and I do apologise.
The few weeks leading up to Christmas
were pretty hectic for me.
I spent most of my time working, whilst
trying to hold onto a social life.
Still it was Christmas, and everything
feels better at that time of the year.
I went home and spent the holiday with
my family, and managed to see some friends.
So it was spent mainly relaxing, eating
a lot and generally just having a good time.
I’ve now made the trip across to Wales
and will be relaxing until the New Year arrives.
That means I should have more time to
blog thankfully, so you should see more posts soon.

Photo Diary: Hot Dogs, Street Art, W♥C & Polaroids

Looking at these photos makes me so happy. I’ve been having so much fun lately, and I’m so glad to share it on here. I went home to Norwich for a couple of days to sort some stuff out and see family. Whilst I was there I really started to feel like it really was going to be Christmas soon. I brought out my Nuxe travel set and fell in love with practically every item inside of it. I also brought out an old polish that felt slightly seasonal and got tons of compliments. I’ve been experimenting with layering shirts & sweaters at work, thanks to the recently chilling weather. I also popped along to the launch of the Drop Dead Winter Collection in their Soho store. That meant I got to bring a plus-one so Laura and I finally got to meet up – love her! My friend in Japan sent me some of the new W♥C items that have just come out. It really took me back to my time living in Tokyo and made me miss everyone so much. This weekend I also took a walk around Shoreditch and caught up with Anna over cake and coffee. I’ve really sucked at keeping in touch with friends lately (due to work), so I’m trying to remedy it. Also food. There was lots of food. Always with the food.

My New Custom iPhone Case by Roxie Sweetheart

After lusting after Roxie’s iPhone cases for a while, I finally took the plunge.
I asked her if she would make a custom case just for me (I know, I’m awkward).
Luckily for me she takes orders for bespoke cases, so all I really had to do was wait!
It was done pretty quickly, even though she had to wait for a few supplies to arrive first. 
Roxie was kind enough to send me mock ups of what it would look like with different designs etc.
I thought that was really sweet and also very helpful in order to  achieve the perfect case for me.
I fell for this one though as soon as I saw it – I just love the kitty, stars, flowers and little sassy lady.
It’s kinda nice to know I have a case that no one else has. Can you say special snowflake syndrome anyone?
Check out what’s new on Roxie Sweetheart or grab a phone case here.

Photo Diary: Access All ASOS, junk food, Muji & more

As you can see I’ve keeping myself busy with pretty things…and yummy things.
I finally succumbed to Muji storage and bought some for my Tatty Devine collection.
I have to say I love it and I kind of want to cover my entire apartment in it and be super organised.
I was invited to apply for Access All ASOS recently and was accepted – hooray, and thank you ASOS!
It’s a pretty cool concept and I can’t wait to share more with you on here and on Twitter, Instagram etc.
I’ve been uploading my outfit looks more often too, including my personalised t-shirt from tshirtprinting.
I treated myself to a new accessory – some classy gold (amazing sound quality) headphones.
Not only have I been decorating my body (…with clothes) but I’ve been decorating my bed too!!
I couldn’t resist it when I saw that Primark had their pug duvet set back in stock, it’s too adorable.
Apart from that I’ve just been stuffing my face with giant pizzas and Halloween Krispy Kreme.

5 Japanese Fashion Instagram Accounts You Should Be Following

You may remember my previous ‘5 Fashion/Beauty Instagram Accounts You Should Be Following‘ post. Well I wanted to expand on that series and go back to the roots of this blog, and that means Japanese fashion. I’ve picked out 5 of my favourite Japanese fashion Instagram accounts where you can find amazing style inspiration.

Who? @akimoto_kozue Model
Why? Akimoto’s Instagram is a small look into the life of one of Japan’s current ‘it’ models.

She takes you around Japan (and the world; she recently walked the runway at Paris & London’s fashion weeks) with her as she documents her busy schedule through photos. That doesn’t mean it’s all dull and boring though. She posts fun, silly photos, and often takes photos with her close friends, some of whom are other models and designers, such as Kiko Mizuhara & Jeremy Scott. She’s a gorgeous gal with a taste for life!

Who? @gold_erika Model/Fashionista
Why? If you love fashion and sexy selfies, Erika is your lady.

Her Instagram is full of selfies, outfit posts, parties and behind-the-scenes looks at any of the current photo shoots she is taking part in. She’s quite the socialite. Erika has a very subtle sexy look, which is something I quite envy. Her make-up and fashion is always on point…and I can’t get enough of that short sharp bob.

Who? @mogatanpe Idol
Why? Purple is one of my favourite colours and it just so happens to be Mogami’s assigned colour.

That might seem a bit weird, but it’s actually because she is a part of the idol group – a pop group with 6 members (each assigned a colour) whose popularity has been rising as of late. Her Instagram is an insight into the life of a young, fun, fashionable woman. She isn’t like your usual Japanese idols, especially in her fashion sense. Her personal style is very cool and I love seeing her outfits.

Who? @natsuumikunsan Model
Why? Natsumi is a real cutie, that much is obvious.

Her Instagram features pastel hair, silly outfit shots and photo shoot snaps where she looks like she may actually be part angel. Heavily photoshopped images aside, Natsumi is a popular model in the gyaru industry and is often taking part in shoots and shows, which she always shares on her Instagram. I live out my hair and nail dreams through her photos.


japanese fashion instagram

Who? @si_oux DJ/Model/Photographer/Designer
Why? Yep, si oux has and does it all.

She’s the designer behind the well-known tights and leggings brand Vive Vagina, and she also just so happens to be a dj, model and photographer in her spare time. Her daily unconventional outfit photo shoots in the corner of her roof terrace are a staple on her Instagram. I have to say she is a lady after my own heart – look at that red hair! It’s what drew me in to begin with and it features a lot in her photos, whether it’s at her current DJ set or a promo image for a brand. Definitely one for fans of alternative fashion.

OOTD: A Catch Up

Here’s another catch-up from my Instagram, for those who don’t follow me on there. I have been taking more outfits shots on there lately for various reasons and I wanted to share them. I’ve been trying my best to incorporate more colour into my outfits, as you all know I do love to wear black. I especially love monochrome, as you can spot in some of the photos, but hey, at least it’s not black on black. So you’ll spot a touch of colour here and there, whether it’s a full on dress or shirt, or maybe a scarf or pendant. It’s difficult getting myself out of such a bad habit but I think I’ve been doing pretty well as of late.
