New Years Eve Outfit Inspiration ft. ASOS!
Hey lovelies! Now the Christmas festivities are all over, it's time to focus on the night of the year - NYE! So, if you're like me you would have left planning your outfit until the very last minute (Thank you for next day delivery, ASOS!) so I'm here to be your saviour & give you some inspiration, and my top picks from ASOS (your welcome)

1. Club L Gold sequin & mesh plunge dress - click here
2. Reclaimed Vintage sheer black tassel dress - click here
3. Club L Mermaid sequin short dress - click here
4. ASOS NIGHT Metalic skinny strap emerald dress - click here
5. Spiritual Hippie bodycon black long tassel dress - click here

These are some of the most gorgeous dresses I've seen, and they're all perfect for New Years Eve, whether you've got a formal event, a house party or going out to town in pubs and clubs. I want to order them all! I already have a few NYE outfits picked out which I just need to choose from, including the Spiritual Hippie tassel dress shown up above (which is now only £10 in the January Sales fyi)

I normally only wear black clothing (fave colour, duh) but I'm really feeling the sparkly vibes this time of the year, and green is creeping it's way into my wardrobe (and hair!) lately. So mermaidy. Being compared to a mermaid & a witch is definitely not a bad thing! Nope.

So, hit the January sales, scour through ASOS and scramble through your overflowing wardrobes for that perfect new years outfit, and have a fabulous time!
May this year be your best year yet... Happy new year! 
Thanks for reading,

Birmingham Christmas Vlog ft. Lush, Urban Outfitters & German Market!

Birmingham Christmas Vlog ft. Lush, Urban Outfitters & German Market!

Hey gurl! I hope you enjoyed the mini vlog up there!
My boyfriend and I took a little day trip into Birmingham with the intention of visiting the German market & go ice skating... Being typically me, I was too indulged in shopping and we didn't end up going ice skating after all, doh!
As we didn't go ice skating this time, we've planned to go to either Milton Keynes or Peterborough on my birthday next month instead, woo!

The German market in Birmingham centre is absolutely huge! We have one in Northampton at the moment, but it's nowhere near the size of this one. They had such a variety of stalls which were all so unique, including crepé bars, soap & bath bomb stands, craft beer & hotdogs, and my favourite of all, crystals & stone stall!
I adored having a wander around the market, it felt so festive, especially amongst the carousel, giant santa & huge twinkling pine trees!

Whilst in Urban Outfitters looking at the records, I was thinking about buying a new record player because the Crosleys in there look so cool, especially the black & brown, but I've heard a few bad things about them... Are they really that bad? If you've had any experience with them, I'd love to hear it!

In Lush I brought a few things I've never tried before, like the Christmas wand, and it's sooo super nice! I don't usually go for things like that, and would normally stick to the Snow Fairy scented things, but I really loved it.
I love the look of Old Father Time soap, too! So tempted to buy the whole wheel of it for the aesthetics... Keep it as an ornament, haha. The smell reminds me of Camden markets, it's similar to incense sticks, it's lush... See what I did there, see? ... I'll go now, haha.

I'd love your feedback on this little mini vlog! It's a bit different from the normal chatty vlogs you see. If you haven't already, check out my previous video which is all about supporting small, independent business' on Etsy, with a little 'haul'!

Thanks so much for reading, lovelies!
