I'm on fire -  Bruce Springsteen

Me & some friends decided we wanted a holiday. Not one for really clubbing we set our sights on Europe & then AMSTERDAM! I am totally excited even though its only for four days. I can't wait to hire bikes & visit all the dutch shops. We're staying near a place called Dam Square & as it will be mid december when we go, hopefully there will be a christmas market! If so, you can find me there! Also, I think we're staying in a houseboat!! 

We are staying in central Amsterdam, called Noord, If anyone can reccomend any places to visit I would be ever so thankful!

It's a little too early for me to pack but these will be my essentials. Brogues, Bobble hat, Polaroid 300 instant with film & Jack Daniel playing cards. I decided to take cards as I am now the only girl going. My girlies can't go because of University so I am stuck with the bums. It's gonna be a chore getting them to come round a museum with me, so I thought to bring cards for the evening drinks/plane journey just for brownie points. Don't laugh at my sad attempt please :')

Hey ya - Sarah Blasko

For my birthday, my lovely aunt & cousins bought me this gorgeous recipe book. It's called Peggy Porschens Baking Boutique & is filled with her stunning photos of her yummy cakes & delicious pastries & her journey of how she started making cakes to starting her own boutique!

I wanted to have a go at these cute christmas cookies but seems as its still November & it was late I opted for the hot chocolate instead.

Just by following the instructions I has the sweetest, creamiest hot chocolate in my cup & it tasted amazing! I really wish I had a nicer photo to do it justice & make some cookies but this was all at 11pm... Will have to make them another time next month! 

Hope you all had a good day! 



Honey Jars - Bryan John Appleby

There's a little art gallery in my town square & it's filled with pretty little things, I really need to pluck up the courage to ask if I can take some photos next time! Anyhow, I went for a little visit the otherday & my very generous mother treated me to this wonderful scented candle! The packaging is super cute, I love the floral fabric on the lid & the rustic lable.  I feel like I'm lying in a field of lavender when I open it, it's strong but not overpowering, It' so pretty I don't even want to light it yet!

The candles come in all sorts of lovely different scents such as fresh fig, coconut, grapefruit & more.

Head over to Parkminster to browse their wonderful selection of bath foam, diffusers & more candles.

FOLLOW ME: on instagram. I love seeing all your photos!!

Hope you all had a lovely day!


Hey Ho  - The Lumineers

I have never had a watch before. 20 years old & never had my own wrist watch to wear all day long. I guess it's because I have never found one to my liking. I have been after a plain black & gold one, very much like the end picture, but I wanted it to be vintage. 

Then I came across Daniel Wellington's Watch collection & I am hooked! I love how preppy they are & my favourite has to be the first striped watch. I love the colours & style & also the vintage looking ones. Super cool. I may have to invest in one & finally get my watch!

Hope you all have a great day!


Petulia - The Kooks

I was recently contacted by Stephanie on behalf of the House of Fraser to write about their Coast collection & so I thought with Christmas & the New Year approaching (scary I know!) that I would opt for a post on the beautiful dresses from their collection right now.

{Alice dress, £160}

I love the lace on this dress, it's so chic & pretty. I especially love the small lace shoulders.

 {Daltoness dress, £125}

I adore the colour of this one. It reminds me of a 1930's flapper dress. Perfect for a party at Gatsby's ;) 

{Iffia Dress}

This dress is tres chic! It reminds me of a 50's Dior dress, I could definately see Audrey Hepburn wearing this elegant little number. I love how it skirts out at the bottom.

{Zelda Maxi dress, £195}

I think this one is my favourite. I reminds me of a "Bond Girl" dress...

..well if I was wearing I would certainly feel like one ;) I love the bold colour too, perfect for christmas.

Hope you have a lovely day!



Rules - Jayme Dee

I have finally decided that I want one. I have been browsing their site & I think I am going to go for a classic brown with my initials embossed in gold.

I'm not usually a ring lover, love looking at them but usually I find they annoy me & end up taking them off but I love the colour of this ring.

3. American Flag Sweater £25 - 

I adore sweaters in these crisp cold months & I am loving this one from River Island right now. They make the comfiest jumpers.

I love my wellies. They are a nessesity in Wales. Brilliant for Guy Fawkes night standing in a muddy field watching fireworks & eating pumpkin soup!

5. Diffuser $27

I mentioned in another wish list that I wanted a library scented candle & I still haven't gotten round to purchasing yet when I found a Library scented diffuser. Safe to say I still want the candle & this one! 

I love Lomograpghy & although I have instagram, I still love having a lomo camera & this one is pretty cute! 

I'm a sucker for geodes & amathyst is my favourite crystal. I loved these Orchid Pendants!

I saw this hat whilst I was shopping the other day & I didn't buy it, totally regretting it as its all I can think about! It has some gorgeous colours!

Hope everyone is keeping warm! It's freezing here! 

Walcott - Vampire Weekend

Happy Halloween! I know that it was yesterday but I just wanted to share a small glimpse of what I wore.

{Batman bodysuit - Lazy Oaf £40, paired with a plain black peplum skirt & top shop wedges}

{Charlie, Moi, Loo}

I spent the night in a club in Cardiff ( I'm not usually into clubbing, but it was actually not so bad) After all the whole reason im in cardiff is to see & spend time with my friends & had a great night drinking gross Halloween themed cocktails, watching the horror films that they played in the club, eating candy & getting tangled in fake cobwebs most of the night.

I didn't get to carve a pumpkin *cries* I think this is the first time ever! It's one of my favourite traditions! Hopefully they will have more pumpkins in stock next year!

Hope everyone else had a fab Halloween!
