MICHA LOUNGE










 
 
First and foremost, I'm so obsessed with this phone case from the Chiara Ferragni collection (who I'm also a bit obsessed with.) My bestie got it for me for Christmas and every time I go to text/answer the phone it brings me such sparkly, winky joy! It makes me never want to upgrade my phone again.
 
I've been living in this cardi recently. It's by a brand called Micha Lounge, who I'd never heard of but stumbled across on Asos. I saw it on this 'New In' bit and fell in love instantly. It's grey, massively oversized and super soft... it's as though it was made just for me! Josh says I look like Jesus, which wasn't quite the look I was going for... but I'll go with it. Micha have got loads of other amazing pieces on Asos that I now must have to, this ribbed camel cardi is next on my list.
Also, apologies for the Cousin It style photos, it was super windy here today. Most people would look quite graceful and Beyoncé-esque in such windy conditions... I'm more Adams Family!

VALENTINES LINGERIE PICKS


 
 
 
 
Oh Valentines day, here you come again.
 
Although I (obviously) love my boyfriend, I have to admit that I'm not the biggest fan of valentines day. There's so much build up and pressure to celebrate & I never quite know what to buy him. I thought about doing a 'his & hers gift guide post but I didn't know what the hell to put in it. One year I got him a t-shirt that said "I love Helen" (in an I heart NY stylie)... I was very impressed, him not so much.
 The one thing I do like about Valentines day though is the vast amount of sassy lingerie that gets stocked. It seems to get bigger and better every year and it's a great opportunity to shop for a set, even if you're single. I don't know about you, but it always makes me feel ten times better when I wear a new set, even though no one else might not know. So instead of a gift guide, I decided to share some of my lingerie lusts with you. How amazing is the Agent Provocateur bodysuit? Although I don't think my budget will quite stretch, also it's probably meant for someone a lot more graceful than me, so I thought the H&M set was a great alternative. I love the petrol colour and I'm partial to a balconette style. So for me it's a winner at under £20 for the set!
 
 
Until next time palls

MY GO TO SPRING JACKET









 
Yesterday we went to our friends engagement party & I wore this little jacket I picked up from Asos the other day. It's not something that really is very me (it's not grey and 10 times my size for a start) but I was just drawn to it.
It was one of those things that I loved on the model, thought would look terrible on me but ordered anyway to try. Then when it arrived I actually really loved it. It reminds me of a Chanel-esque boucle jacket with a little bit of Chloe fringing mixed in, and who can argue with that combo!
I've got a few weddings, christenings and other various do's this Spring so I thought this little chappy might see my through quite well! Although when these occasions do arise no doubt ill be like "I'VE GOT NOTHING TO WEAR, I NEED SOMETHING NEW"... and queue Asos premier for a bit of panic bulk buying.

WINTER WALKS








 
At heart I'm a real country bumpkin. Obviously, traipsing through mud waving at sheep isn't as chic as sipping cocktails in a city bar, but I am who I am.
 
I thought it would be nice to share with you one of my favourite places to walk, if not my most favourite. It's where my boyfriend grew up, in a little classic English village called Great Livermere. It's full of quirky little cottages, chickens roaming around everywhere and even the odd peacock. Although sometimes I like to ignore all the British-ness and pretend I'm in America and my very own version of the Notebook. I just need to get hold of a little rowing boat and a few swans. Doable?
 
My walking attire is not very practical really. White converse and a muddy country path definitely don't really go hand in hand, but there we go. Im not really a welly boots kinda person. I also have been living in my H&M teddy coat since I got it just before Christmas. I wear it with skinny jeans and heeled boots if I'm going out for lunch or what not, but its aslo perfect to cosy up in and keep me warm when I'm walking. Who said you cant have style & substance?

ASOS PAYDAY WISHLIST



 
 
So it appears I'm sold by anything on Asos that the gorgeous dark skinned model wears. Unfortunately I certainly wont look like her in one of those jumpsuits, she's more Beyonce and I'm Samantha Mumba. Not that there's anything wrong with Samantha Mumba. Anyway, I digress.
 
This has been a lonnnnng month, the bank fund situation is dyer and I have never wanted to shop more. It's a recipe for disaster really, but I will be strong and wait until payday. Which still seems like forever away, but I'll hang on in there. I think the first thing going straight in my basket in this uh-mazing Micha cardigan. I've been after one like this for a while after my beloved grey oversized cardigan finally bit the dust. Micha is not a brand I've heard of before, but the knitwear they have got stocked on Asos is just a dream.
I have also been pining after these copper Birkenstocks for a while now, but considering it's about 3 degrees outside I think I can wait for those.
 
What's taking your fancy this month?
