Just wanted to say....

Hello lovely readers, just wanted to say that I am so THRILLED with all the comments I receive and the people who have started following my blog- thank you very much! I am surprised that people actually like reading my waffle and I am sorry that I have been lacking in posts recently. Unfortunately this will continue till at least the 10th of May because I am drowning in final year deadlines. 
Here is the evidence:

Give yourself a pat on the back if you spotted the box of Cadbury's Chocolate Fingers buried beneath the papers....essays are not good for your figure! 

So new followers, please be patient and stick with my blog for a wee bit longer, I promise there will be more from me soon.

Lots of love,

Zara shoes of dreams!

Just a reeeeally short post to introduce you all to my new pair of shoes! I'm so taken with them that I thought they deserved their own post. I actually almost bought them in the haul from my last post but left them in the store. After I came home and consulted Katie (who then went ahead and bought them for herself!) I ordered them online and they arrived today. I love the colour, style and they're actually comfortable!
So without further ado.....

Spring fashion haul (H&M, Zara and Topshop)

SO, the loan finally came in which meant I could actually do some retail therapy (ya know, to get me through the last few weeks of uni!). There is SO much more I could of bought from all three of these shops but I narrowed it down to these pieces. You may notice a bit of a theme with the colours, ha!

Hope you like them, sorry I'm not brave enough to do an OOTD post...

Oranje, Naranja, Arancione!

For those of you unfamiliar with European languages (I'm not either, cheers Google!), the title of this post translates as "Orange, orange, orange!" as this post is a dedication to a colour which has long been a favourite of mine. Only in the last year has this cheerful shade been considered 'on trend' and it is being fully embraced by fashionistas. Here are my two favourite looks I ADORE:
