Toby Heart Ginger

After a two week sudden blogging break-thanks to the Flu, I'm back with an exciting collaboration to share with you, a new hair colour, and spontaneous nose-piercing-oh and a new tattoo. First up is the exciting launch of the Australian label Toby Heart Ginger on With a brand philosophy of 'Love what you wear, wear what you love', the fun and playful label offers on trend fashions at affordable prices. For the launch I decided to sport this 'free-spirited, boho-esque playsuit as I immediately fell for its off-the-shoulder design and draw-string waist. Needless to say styling the item was a breeze by pairing it with a few small accessories, and layering those trusty crystal necklaces for the ultimate 'boho' inspired look. This brand is definitely worth a look at, if you-too see yourself as bohemian free-sprit.

Another thing I've been meaning to share with you is my latest addition to my (forever growing) tattoo collection. It's strange as I have never shared my previous tattoos directly on my blog before, as they're quite small and you will only see them if I bare the inside of my arms. However this one is one you can't really disguise when wearing low, back clothing-hence why I'm sharing. For ages I've been meaning to get a tattoo on my back, but for me I wanted to get something with a personal meaning from the reason why I chose the flower, colour, to even the number of flowers. So exactly a month ago I found myself sat in a tattoo chair for 3-4 hours getting said idea, tattooed.  I simply love it as its everything of how I imagined and better. The tattooist responsible for it (and my previous tatts) is a guy call Lee, give him a follow on instagram here.  He is awesome and also responsible for my dads ever-growing collection-I often get tattoos done with my "farther".

UNIF Frost

When I first came across this pastel striped jumper on the UNIF website I just knew it just had to be mine-to fulfil all of my pastel coloured dreams. Everything from its high neck shape, to having every pastel shade under the sun plastered all over it. This jumper is certainly one that has stolen my heart.

As it was my first ever UNIF purchase (and order) I was slightly concerned about the sizing of such an item, as it can take up to a couple of weeks to arrive due to international shipping, and I desperately didn't want to be disappointed. Nevertheless I wasn't. In fact sizing wise it was near to perfect, although you could probably get away with going a size down due to its oversized nature.
For todays outfit I decided to pair it with a couple of simple, key pieces such as this white skater skirt and grey backpack as I really wanted the jumper to be the eye-catcher of the whole look. Topped off with an (obligatory) unicorn necklace, my pastel (kawaii) inspired outfit was complete.

Ever since moving to Nottingham I have fallen in love with their array of vintage/antique shops, and independent boutiques.  Cow vintage was a brand that I have been aware of for over a year, so when I saw that they had a store in Notts I couldn't believe my luck. As vintage shopping goes, this is one of those shops that makes browsing (and rummaging) through vintage an ease as everything is extremely well laid out and organised. Also with such a vast collection of both decades and styles it has become my one-stop destination to loose myself in and escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Owning a pair of vintage Levi jeans have been top of my list for far too long to recall, but like with any piece of clothing I have a somewhat strict 'criteria' that they have to fall into. This 'criteria' included being of the high-waisted/mom jean style, dark wash and under £30. Some may say that this is 'a lot' to ask for a pair of good quality jeans, but I was determined to achieve it.

Remarkably I did indeed fulfil it, with this very pair of jeans costing me just £18...I still can't quite believe my luck. If you are in Nottingham or fancy yourself as more of an online shopper than be sure to check out WE ARE COW, as you never know what bargains you might lay your hands on.
