Little Treats

I decided to pop into my local outlet village after work today. The plan was to be disciplined and only get what i needed, i.e Skincare products, however on the way, i spotted H&M still open which is usually not the case in little old Swindon after 4:30pm. So i popped in for a quick browse and it was downhill from there


Snake print top H&M - love the leather detailing around the neck, pocket and wrist. I can't get enough of animal prints right now

NEXT- High waisted sheer pleated maxi

I've had my eye on this bad boy for a little while, was kind of holding out on it, till i got there and it had gone down by 70%, there was obviously no way i was leaving without it

H&M snood - £2, two freaking pounds, i got two lol

I also bought this Mid Grey Snake skin layered blouse from Oasis yesterday, i think it was the frill layering around the shoulder that sealed the deal for me :)

The Bag & I

Like every girl out there i LOVE bags and i collect them. I say collect because despite having lots of bags, i tend to gravitate towards carrying only a select few on a regular basis. I am the type of person that could carry one bag for two months straight, which is usually driven by it being a new purchase. Also i tend to buy really big bags for everyday use and somehow my entire life seems to find its way in there, so changing bags on regular basis is more of a hassle.  

The Zara Shopper Basket below is my bag of choice right now, i absolutely love love love this bag!!!! it looks great, doesn't break the bank but most importantly it has the SIZE FACTOR. When it comes to bags, my motto is BIG BIG BIG.

Sadly there are two flaws applicable to owning this bag, see mini essay below (my opinion) 

  1. Every Tom, Dick, Harry & their sister's friend's sister has this bag. I have never really been someone who cares about other people having what i have, in actual fact, i take pleasure in being able to point people in the right direction when it comes to clothes, bags blah blah. However, i had a week off work and literally every corner i turned in London, there was at least five girls carrying this bag :(
  2. No Zip - Zara really meant it when they named this bag a basket, it is an open basket and i feel slightly exposed when i go to densely populated areas such as Oxford street or shopping centres. I feel like anyone can easily put their hands into my bag and snatch my wallet or something without me noticing grrrrrr
All that being said, i still LOVE this bag and will continue to rock it alongside my other Zaralites

Thought i would also include a few of my other trusty everyday bags

It's all about Aqua

I discovered Aqua by Aqua clothing in 2010 and it is amazing & great  to see how much growth they have experienced creatively and in terms of brand awareness.

In any case, this post is less about their history and more about their amazing new collection "Electric Dreams", every piece in this collection is a MUST HAVE and has me droooling.  I love the fabrics, the cut  but most importantly the continued boldness of their pieces, their splits and cut outs are dangerously sexy, so proceed with caution!!!

It really is difficult to choose my favourite pieces from this collection, but one thing i will say is that there is definately something for every fashionista in there.

Hmmmm that "Sequin  Kimono Maxi" hmmmmm #continuesdrooling

check out the entire collection below and let me know what you guys think


It is one of the most anticipated festivals of the year, a mixture of great music, cool people, great outfits and much more. This year, everyone is raving about the technological awesomeness that was Tupac's hologram performance with Dr Dre and Snoop, if you haven't seen the video yet, check it out below

Aside from the performances & Tupac, a certain superstar was also present and she wore what i would call her IDGAF look, what do you guys think?

RiRi has also been Instagramming a storm this weekend, showing off her ridiculously toned hot body & leaving most fans drooling. below are a few of our favourite Riri Instagram pictures from this weekend

she is definately a free spirit and not afraid to express herself in words and pictures, if you want to see more, follow badgalriri on Instagram.
