A Floaty Number.

Okay, so it's about time I showed off some of my finds in Germany, be it only a two...but still, they're so pretty. I managed to tick off two boxes from my mental wish list/ must list; a floaty dress and a big daytime bag. The first is a steal from Zara at only €20, whilst the latter was spotted in the corner of my eye in a German shop called Promod for just  €29.

These sandals are the only ones that I've really ever liked, and therefore have worn more than they can take I think, although saying that they aren't looking too shabby after four years! I also wore two pairs of earrings today, it's rare for me to even remember that I've had my ears pierced twice haha.
Hope you guys share the love for the floaty dress, it's just so summery!

Peeks of Germany.

Thought I'd do an ickle post of photos taken on my recent trip to Germany to visit my lovely friend Evs, as well as all her friends who are always so welcoming and lovely. Sadly, and quite embarrassingly too, I can not speak much German at all, so always feel like the ignorant tourist who goes over expecting everyone to talk English, thankfully everybody I met was so sweet and spoke in English for me, sometimes even translating too. So thank you so much guys!

Of course we managed to do lots of shopping too, so I'll show off my new buys soon! It was a absolute lovely weekend finished off with the road trip to Holland, where the beaches were beautiful, I would never have thought to go here but damn I want to visit again already!

Ich Liebe Erdnussbutter.

Hallo! Last night I returned home from five lovely days visiting my friend Eva in Cologne, Germany. We try to see each other at least twice a year, taking it in turns to fly over to one another, and this was perhaps my fourth visit and I love it more each time. After having a few stressful months at work I really felt like a break, and catching up with one of my favourite girls was definitely the right medicine. We managed to cram in so much, a weekend of shopping, relaxing, partying and exploring was just perfect! 
So whilst I've been missing from the blogosphere I managed to take some outfit photos, although I wasn't incredibly good at remembering, and despite taking a huge suitcase full of just clothes I still felt like I was lacking choice...girl problems hey.

I'll catch you up with more of my german escapades next time, for now I'm going to sit and read this 50 shades...see what all the hype about and indulge in too much milka chocolate! It's so damn good, and so cheap in Germany so I stocked up haha, all different flavours, yum.

Pretty White Tee.

It's more simple white tee, however the cut-out shoulders gives it some ooo, in my opinion the most attractive things about a girl are less obvious; shoulders, collar bones, wrists and back to name some. I'd had my eye on the cut-out tops for a while, but never got round to buying one...until yesterday when I went where I shouldn't and browsed the sales (I can't save, it's sooo hard!) and found this simple number in New Look for £4, not too shabby ey. It looked like the last one on the rails, and it is a few sizes bigger than my norm, but I like big and baggy!

 There's something about a plain white top and blue jeans that makes me feel fresh and healthy..strange but true. It's such a simple outfit, but it's like a clean slate to accessorise how ever I feel like it, there aren't really any boundaries with this clean look outfit.
Does anybody else get what I mean about rocking a plain white tee?

Ex-Prom Dress.

 You know the 'make-me-feel-better' outfit I wore on my sick day? This is it. An old prom treasure, at the time this seemed like the perfect dress, the only one I just had to have, and although I'm not sure that those feelings still remain, it's still a wonderful pick-me-up girly piece. It was my first ever decent Republic find, and I must say it changed my opinion of the highstreet brand, and nowadays there is always some pretty little thingmy eyes wander to in  store.

The dress was only £25, although my 17 year old self thought that was pricey...I blame my bargain hunting mum haha. But isn't it just such a cute dress? The shape, the print, the heart-shape back.
Stay dandy <3

Pretty Little Touches.

I've spent most of today in bed fighting off a horrid sore throat and annoying cough, the extra zzzs I caught by taking the day off work definitely had an effect and now I'm feeling much better. Nonetheless, when I woke up mid-afternoon I felt is disorientated and icky, you know the feeling? So I dressed up all pretty and girly to give myself an oomph, with a little bit of pampering included.

 Thought I'd treat you to a sneak peek of an outfit, seen as I dressed up all nice to just sit in today, I know have the perfect outfit to wear tomorrow- weather permitting...or maybe not, I may just fight through the grey and drizzle.
 How do you girls make yourself feel better when your ill? I now commencing the final hours of my sick day with peppermint tea, crappy TV and my boyf's fhm magazine, my secret pleasure.

Stay dandy <3

Sleepy Catch Up

#a new obsession of mine#cute tin full of tea bags#the boyf's obsession on his top, Pixie Lott
#evening beach walks are bliss#strawberry lemonade cooler from Costa#American candy shop, they do it so well
#the best cider right? of course#dismantling my pin board of five years#my usual from the chippy, oi oi saveloy
#looking like a fishermen after a cold,late train journey#American taffy is too good#strawberry milkshake pop tarts,amazing whiffs from the toaster

#a jam at work, just genius#the best part about baking is licking the bowl!#my bestie before blowing out her birthday cocktail
Life feels pretty chaotic at the moment, Summer is well and truly kick starting, leaving the sunshine behind for most it seems. Often I take these phone photos then forget about them, so once in a while I go to my album and see a little photo diary of recent happenings, I rather like it that way.
Off to indulge in maltesers, yet make my self feel better with green tea. Plenty of it. In bed, of course.
