 I wore this outfit a couple of weeks ago, when it wasn't that freezing outside, and completely forgot about it! I just have to show off these amazing Topshop shorts. I saw them at the beginning of the summer and I've fallen in love with them. However, the £40 price tag scared me of. I was debating doing a similar DIY job next year, but then the miracle happened and I saw them on SALE! There was a big squeal of delight in my flat, let me assure you. For a cinema outing I decided to team them up with one of my favourite t-shirts - super-cute unicorn and trusted Vans

Topshop Fawn Lipstick


Topshop Fawn Lipstick £9

This is my first Topshop lipstick. So far I have owned only one other item from the Topshop range - a nail polish. It seems that I always go to Boots or Superdrug to hunt for some promotions. The lipstick has a delicate nude colour and adds a little shimmer to the lips. You can really see it in the last photo taken with the flash. I really like the package too - I think it is limited edition and reminds me of a fancy spider web.

Sugarhill Boutique Press Day S/S 2013


I love the Sugarhill Boutique prints - especially the foxy dresses and jumpers in the current A/W collection. One of the jumpers with the cute fox was worn by Sam Faiers on TOWIE and I thought it was super cute. So after I got a chance to see their S/S 2013 collection, I am very happy to report on it. Sugarhill Boutique has their own in-house print designers so each of the prints you get is unique.

The S/S collection focuses on three main themes: (1) monochrome, (2) navy and (3) pastels. All of them have the idea of American vintage style, 50s girls driving in Cadillacs. Also, for the first time, the collection includes jumpers (great for those rainy and colder summer days in the UK), blazers and longer dresses. All in all, I think that everyone can find something. I was really impressed. Monochrome involves limited colours and cute bugs and insects as an extra touch to the outfit. Sugarhill Boutique is based in Brighton and the sea influences are visible in the navy theme. Mostly different shades of blue. The pastels theme reminds me of Hawaii beaches and long summer days with the ice-cream truck up on the street. I love the pink flamingos prints. The collection will be available on Sugarhill Boutique website in February and the most expensive item will cost £60.

parka - River Island, shirt - Primark, leggings - H&M, shoes - New Look,
necklace - River Island, ring - ASOS, bag - Kardashian Kollection


This is what I wore for a YouTube panel of bloggers talking about how they started, giving advice on how to work with companies and all other blogging stuff. I promise to post about it soon - focusing on the tips on how to start the YouTube blog. The whole event has given me the push to start my own YouTube channel and I think I will do it - despite this being an enormous (and scary) step for me.

I'm wearing here three of my recent favourite purchases. The Primark floral shirt has an amazing print and the length is just perfect to wear over leggings or skinny jeans. The gold buttons are cute and add a little sparkle too! The BAD necklace from River Island so far proved to be a hit among blogging ladies - I was asked so many times where did I buy it. I remember putting it on my wishlist a while ago and I am so happy that I got it - reminds me of Lana Del Rey's style, which I adore. The third favourite thing is the Kardashian Kollection bag. I am so glad I've invested in it! Carries all of the necessary stuff and then you can even squeeze in something more. Love it!

F&F Clothing at Tesco Press Day S/S 2013



I think I will be storming the Tesco clothes F&F department as soon as the S/S collection hits the stores. I was so impressed with it! The colours, textures and designs were amazing and sometimes I had to remind myself that it is not Next event. The prices are super affordable too. For example, one of my personal favourites - a flower print dress on the second photo - will cost only £30! This reminds me so much of the Mary Katrantzou dresses - especially the ones she made for Topshop. You can wear this dress with a nice blazer and it will be perfect wherever you go. 

The clean cuts and straight lines are what this collection is made of. A touch of retro here and there makes it great for a sophisticated look. The pale pink dress with the sequined necklines turned out to be a front-runner for most of the ladies. I personally also really like the pink bowed dress which reminds me of modern Mad Men style. 


You can see that I was focused more on the clothes than the accessories, so I can only report that neons and safari colours are still making a come back next year.

One of the few things that make me to look forward to autumn is walking in the park on a sunny afternoon. The vivid colours and the leaves everywhere... And you go around with a cup of Christmas-flavour latte in your hand (I recommend Costa's Salted Caramel), just perfection. However, you do need to keep warm, so recently I am wearing jumpers almost every day.

Cartoon fashion is still on this season and I love these little comic touches on dresses, tops and jumpers like this one. I didn't want to invest in something expensive from ASOS or Topshop, so this Primark number was perfect to go. I like how POW! is big and flashy.
