Wish List: Persun Mall

Persun Mall Wishlist
Recently I joined Persun Mall‘s blogger program and was asked to create a wishlist.
I do love a good wishlist, so of course I jumped at the chance to do one this time round.
After choosing a few items I loved, I realised that I’d started to style an entire outfit.
Little by little it was coming together and it was full of some gorgeous items.

At first look, it would seem I was inspired by the recent festival trend going around.
Even though I’m not a festival fan this outfit and these items probably would be perfect for one.
Sunglasses, bracelet, shawl jacket, dark denim shorts, tan shoulder bag and ankle boots – check!
Persun Mall is similar to a lot of other China based online brands doing the rounds right now.
You’ll find affordable, varied items of a decent quality that can be shipped worldwide.
I’m looking forward to working with them!

Wish List: GIZA x Joyrich at Selfridges


When I spotted the GIZA pop-up in Selfridges last week I was beyond excited. Giza is a Japanese brand produced by DJ and all around amazing woman Mademoiselle Yulia. My friend Renka is the one who peeked my interest in the brand, and she is also the person who bought me my first piece from it – my dinosaur ring. It’s a difficult brand to get hold of if you live outside of Japan, so as soon as I saw the items (produced in collaboration with Joyrich) were online (as well as in-store), I knew a wishlist post was needed!
I love the hieroglyph and dinosaur prints prevalent in the brands designs, which means I end up wanting pretty much everything. As you can see I loved both of the backpacks, so I’d happily have either colour…or both. The sweatshirt looks comfy yet flattering, and I love the print on the skirt. Now if only I could go back in time and find some money for the whole collection.
You can see the whole collection available on Selfridges, and in the London store.

Wish List: White’s Alright

White's Alright
White is a colour that I don’t let into my wardrobe easily. It’s far too pristine for someone who’d drop spaghetti sauce on it in an instant. – aka me. Still, this season I can’t help but find myself considering giving white a chance. If the likes of Ena Matsumoto and Alexa Chung are working it, why can’t I? So I chose some of my top white items out right now:
In fact I kind of want this outfit on me, right now! I can definitely see myself walking to Shoreditch on a sunny day, wearing it. Anyone fancy bringing Christmas to me a little earlier this year?

Coming Soon: Diptyque Beauty Range

Everyone’s favourite high-end candle maker has gone all beauty on us.
Yes, Diptyque will be releasing their own range of beauty products this month.

Trend: Pretty in Pastels

Pastel Trend

The pastel trend is back again this Spring and it looks like it’s gonna be bigger than ever.
I’ve always loved the look but it hasn’t ever really made it’s way into my wardrobe.
There are so many gorgeous items right now though that that may change.
So I’ve put together some cute pastel items for inspiration.

1. Daphne Cropped Jumper – Fashion Union
2. Anna PU Pencil Skirt – Fashion Union
3. Mavis Tailored JumpsuitFashion Union
4. Cotu Classic TrainerSuperga @ ASOS
5. Rabbit Ear Cross Body BagASOS
6. Bijana Box Clutch BagMissguided
7. Shell Grotto Medium NecklaceTatty Devine
8. Double Wrap Leather BraceletWhistles
9. Monster Phone CaseASOS

There seems to be a lot more variety this year when it comes to the pastel trend.
I love the idea of working this into the sports luxe trend as well, with trainers etc.
It’s cute and feminine but it can also be worked into a lot of different personal styles.
I can’t wait for Spring to finally hit, so we can all wear it without freezing too!

Irregular Choice Spring Summer 2014 Collection

Irregular Choice

Irregular Choice are a brand that you remember long after you’ve seen their shoes.
I’ve loved the fun and flare of the brand ever since I first spotted them a few years ago.
Never one to conform, Irregular Choice like to stand out and do their own thing.
For their Spring/Summer 2014 collection, they’ve done just that!

It’s all about cats and unicorns, sequins and other adornments.
Anyone else think that these are gonna make it big on Tumblr?
Seriously, these are some of the best shoes I’ve seen come from Irregular Choice.
The use of cats and unicorns as heels makes me laugh, but also fall in love a little bit.
I also fell for the Rococo/Baroque-esque style of the more ‘normal’ shoes from S/S 2014.
I picked out my 5 favourite pairs above and I can’t wait to try them on in-store when they hit.
Of course the usual iconic IC shoes & handbags will also be making an appearance.
The unicorns will be the first of the collection to hit the Carnaby street store.

Keep an eye out for these beauties as they start dropping on the 31st January!
You can find shoes and accessories on Irregular Choice (in-stores also) and in Schuh stores.

Wish List: It’s (gonna be) My Birthday!

birthday wish list

Here it is, the inevitable birthday wishlist.
Yep, it’s my birthday on the 29th Jan – hooray!
I think I managed to keep it pretty minimal, right?
I didn’t do it on purpose but it ended up feeling quite clean.

Lately I’ve really been thinking more and more about quality items.
I’ve always loved high-end designer items, but I’m still quite practical.
I know I (and those around me) can’t always afford that kind of price.
With that said, I still think they are a good investment for most people.
I tend to use a handbag or watch etc for a few years if it’s good quality.
I also use my eyeshadow palettes until they either run out or go out of date.
I think it’s important, especially now as I think about getting older.
Wow, that got a bit too serious a bit too quick. Sorry!

I choose items that I will get a lot of use and wear out of.
I always take such care in the things I own, and I show them a lotta love.
I also appreciate the things I own and I don’t take them for granted.
I’m mega in love with all of these pieces and I hope you like them too.
Wanna know what they are, and where to buy them?

1. Moschino Letter Wrap Bracelet
2. Iseey Miyake Bao Bao Tote Bag
3. Marc by Marc Jacobs Truman Watch
4. Original Minerals ‘Maintain The Main’ Giftset
5. Jo Malone Sweet Almond & Macaroon Candle
6. Bobbi Brown Nude Eyeshadow Palette  (bought)
7. Deborah Lippmann Exfoliating Cuticle Remover Treatment
8. Trish Mcevoy Power of Brushes Collection
