New online jewellery shop 'KilaJewel'

Hello everyone...

I am pleased to announce that after a lot of hard work over the summer my very own online jewellery store 'KilaJewel' is now up and running!

I have always had a love/obsession with jewellery, especially unique pieces that can give any outfit that little extra pizazz and now I am thrilled to be able to offer to you my lovely followers and the general public a chance to be able to purchase such quirky pieces. And of course they are all available at very affordable prices, I know how hard it is being an avid fashion follower but also being a student, so all of my pieces won't break the bank.

Please feel free to have a browse and any feedback is greatly appreciated :)

P.S. You can also follow on Twitter at

He was a skater boy...she said see you later boy...


So today I wanted to show you all some of my birthday prezzies. Off my lovely boyfriend I received a pair of american apparel disco pants, I have been lusting after these for so long and it is definitely true that they suck you in. I also got these amazing studded black high tops, which I adore! My boyfriend definitely gets extra brownie points for these gifts.

I decided to go for a slightly edgy skater look today. Believe it or not I was actually a little skater girl around the age of 14, I would walk around in a pair of DC's and baggy jeans with zips all the way up to my hip and yes I actually thought I was the bomb! Thankfully this look is a little less baggy and slightly more toned down. To create this laid back look I paired my disco pants with a black vest and then layered over it a cut out checkered shirt. This outfit is perfect for a chilled out day as every item of clothing in this look is so comfortable.

What do you all think?

Checkered Shirt - Topshop

Maxi Madness

Hello again,

Sorry I have been so absent from posting, it has been crazy lately! Firstly, I celebrated my 21st last week which I managed to spread out over a few days, I had a pamper day full of fish pedicures and manicures on my actual birthday, then at the weekend I had an awesome party with friends and family. It was safe to say we all go a little bit drunk and we are still trying to finish off the cake!

Then after a hectic birthday weekend I ended up in Bath and Cardiff for a little bit of birthday money shopping and a night out with friends. Pictured below is one of my purchases, I am so  into maxis at the moment, I guess a little bit late as we are now heading into winter, however, I reckon I can rock it with a scarf, big knit and leather jacket. For todays outfit I decided to pair it with a black knitted sweater with studded shoulders and some black chelsea boots.

The outfit

Jumper - Warehouse
Skirt - UO
Hat - Dads
Boots - Topshop

The accessories

Necklace - Birthday gift

Middle ring - Italian market
thumb ring - Italian Shop

Are any of you as mad for maxi's as I am at the moment? What do you like pairing them with?

I said a Hip Hop...

Hello again...

So this was the dress I decided to wear the other night for a friends 21st, unfortunately I had had an awful cold that week and so my dress only managed to see an hour or so of the party. I ended up being asleep by 10, I couldn't even manage to stay awake for Celebrity that is saying something! I decided I needed to save all my energy for my Birthday this week and thankfully I think that early night has helped a lot.

Anyway, enough of my little sob story and on to the dress. Basically this dress is my stepping stone to finally braving a crop top. I can just about deal with the cut out sides but putting aside my lack of self confidence I LOVE this dress. I think it's so funky and hip. I thought I would follow the funky theme by pairing it with my wedged trainers, which I have to say are the comfiest shoes in the world. I reckon I could actually do a hike in them they are that comfy!

The Outfit

Dress - Urban Outfitters
Shoes - Ash

The Accessories

Centre ring - From Italy
Thumb Ring - Italian Market

Ear cuff - Topshop

The Footwear

Trainers - Ash

Hope you all had a lovely and more eventful weekend than me, hopefully if I curl up in bed long enough my cold will vanish before my birthday on Thursday...fingers crossed.
