I finally made a new youtube video about a few of my favourite items and also a few beauty items that I got recently! I really want to start making youtube videos more often and I managed to film and edit this in one day which is making me believe its actually possible! (all my previous videos have taken up to 13 hours to edit each, sigh) I find myself very cringey in videos but I guess confidence will eventually come with making these videos more often.. anyway, please do leave me any suggestions of what you'd like to see more of on my youtube!

Next weekend I shall be heading off to the Lake District with CAT FOOTWEAR to Kendal Calling festival! I am so excited, I hope the weather is nice! Its set in a deer park in Penrith so I'm hoping it will be super cosy and comfy there with beautiful views so I can spend my day sitting around looking at the view and at night enjoying the campfire in a nice cosy blanket! I'm hoping these amazing CAT boots will serve me well over the weekend, hopefully they wont get too muddy although I think its going to rain beforehand so the prospect of them staying white throughout the entire trip seems bleak.
This for me is a very monochrome look, but its totally ok because have you seen this amazing Hello Margaret kimono/ duster coat? Every season they come out with some new designs and they just keep on getting better and better. This is my favourite from the current collection I think its super amazing, I can't wait to wear it at the festival and swoosh around like hehe I'm a witchy princess! I'm also wearing a lot of lace up in this outfit, I'm kind of obsessed with it, I especially love these shorts from Style Moi that I've been deliberating over getting for quite some time, they're a bit revealing but with the long kimono my bums hidden so I don't think its too much. I'm also wearing the lace up top I got from Topshop last week, its probably my new favourite basic item!!

SOCKS: *WE LOVE COLORS
PURPLE HOLOGRAPHIC BAG: *8 CUBES OF SUGAR
Heres my outfit from Mondays shopping trip, I kinda just threw it on, I've not worn these jeans for ages, I forgot I thankfully do have one pair left that doesn't have a ripped knee, I was very emotional when my vintage calvin klein (very similar to these new calvin kleins) ripped a few weeks ago as they were one of my only pairs without rips aha. During my shopping trip I bought some new jelly shoes, skinny jeans, a candle and also an Attack on Titan card wallet to keep my oyster card in!!! Yay I finally have something AOT themed!! My face looks so smug in the second photo and I have no idea why but I'm gonna go ahead and call it my "yay shopping" face!
LACE UP CROP TOP: TOPSHOP
SEQUIN MERMAID JEANS: TOPSHOP
PINK SOCKS: *WE LOVE COLOURS
GLITTER JELLIES: JUJU FOOTWEAR available @ TOPSHOP / OFFICE
As soon as I saw these jeans had come back into stock at Topshop I had to buy them immediately!! I've been searching for sequin mermaid jeans for so long and every time I came across some, they went out of stock before I could even add them to my basket! In real life, these jeans are extremely baggy and very short legged, so if you want the mom-jean type look, I'd advise going for a longer leg than usual and also a smaller waist, as I really don't think these are true to the waist size shown, I measured them and they're a 28" waist rather than a 26" which is quite disappointing. If the other sizes are the same cut, I'd advise sizing down on the waist measurement. Although perhaps they're meant to be worn on the hip? They are described as "boyfriend jeans" after all. I guess it depends on what kind of look you want. Aside from that, they are amazing!! I love the way they glitter in the sun, I might take them to a festival as I want to be a beautiful glittering festival butterfly!
I also got this lace up crop top, I was considering getting a size 6 but eventually went for a 4 as I wanted it to be super fitted, which it is, so I'm glad I went for the lower size. I think Topshop are doing that thing where they reassign sizes to smaller sizes to one day have the same sizing chart as the US. Or to make people feel better about what size they actually are, who knows. It kinda creeps me out that in a few years time there might be young teenage girls running around saying things like "I'm a size 0!!!" :/ They also do this top in lots of other colours, I think its one of their new basic ranges so I'll probably get lots of them as I love the fit and love the lace up detail!!!
WELLIES: MOOI EN LIEF
JOS SKIRT: AMERICAN APPAREL
The original plan was to go rock pooling, however when we discovered there wasn't much of interest in the rock pools, we decided to go for a little paddle in the sea! We wore our Mooi En Lief boots, jo of course wore the blue ones as she is the ice princess and I wore my pink ones with these cute little flowers attached to them which are also from Mooi! They're like flower headbands for your wellies!
We also made friends with two dogs who joined in with our photos, there were actually two westies but the one didn't want to get in the photo and then there was a huge chocolate labrador who kept staring at the camera like "what is happening, throw my ball."
