Payday treats

After working long hours for a month, trying to fit in writing assignments and revising for my exam I thought I best treat myself! I was relatively disappointed, with the main offerings of the high street being crop tops which I already have a vast collection of and white dresses which are a nightmare to a girl with red hair! I admitted defeat but picked up these to baggy tops which I can throw on with a pair of tights or leggings. Although disappointed, the prospect of having a holiday to spend my wages on has cheered me up, which only means one shopping!

It's the most stressful time of the year....

March has literally been THE most stressful of my life! With assignments, our Sweet Dreams fashion show coming ever closer and working! I felt the need to have a time out and treat myself and after actually obsessing over all the cute little frilly socks in the shops at the moment I found these little beauties in Primark.

 Socks - Primark, £1.50 a pair

Shoes - Dr. Martens (from the outlet in Northampton) £25 each

They will look cute with my creepers and my other recent buy, my beautiful Dr. Martens! I bought them from the outlet in Northampton and when I set my eyes on both pairs I couldn't choose but at £25 each I thought why not get them both! Although I won't be wearing either as I'm back to living in my wellies as the snow has decided to make an appearance AGAIN!

Sweet Dreams Fashion Shoot

For our course at university we are required to organize a fashion show and auction. Our event is called 'Sweet Dreams' with a Willy Wonka/Candy theme. To promote the event we had a photo shoot to get lots of images to use for promotional material. As my job is on the styling team I had to be there to style the models to fit the theme and here are some exclusive behind the scenes images from my first (of many, hopefully!) photo shoots.

Follow our event Twitter @SweetDreamsUON and like our 'Sweet Dreams' Facebook page!

Snow, snow and more snow.

After telling my mum after Christmas I wouldn't need my wellies, I thought we would be over the worst of the bad weather. The of course meant there would be horrendous amounts of thick snow. Cue me waddling to town in the snow to find any shop which sold wellies, who were similarly unprepared for the weather! These cute little purple wellies were the only ones that didn't make me look about 5 years old and due to the snow and ice I lived in them the whole of last week! At least I got my money's worth but now I'm looking forward to wearing normal shoes for a while, weather permitting!

And just because you all haven't been bored to death already with snow pictures, here are some of mine!
