Off to London!

#asseenonme 5
Bonjour, hello, aloha, etcetc. Happy Thursday! As we speak I'll be on a plane to London town (my 10th flight in 10 days, my nerves can't handle much more) for a morning with Swimwear65 and The Skinny Bitch Collective! I've been shit at going to the gym recently so my stamina is at an all time low; put it this way, Brucie from Matilda could easily outlap me. I do have a little something scheduled for when I'm away - spoiler: it's Part II of my festival collaboration with Urban Outfitters - and you can keep up with what we get up to over on my Instagram or Twitter.

Ciao ciao for now muthatruckaass.

...that sounded cooler in my head.

Urban Outfitters Festival Wear | Part I

Bonjour, bonjour! Today's post is the first of a three part festival series with Urban Outfitters which, if you ask me, is one of the best places to go for festival-wear. I don't believe you should be pressured into festival 'fashion' or 'uniforms' to be honest; I think the beauty of festivals (which I'm sure I've mentioned before) is that you can literally wear whatever the hell you like, be that a fresh new outfit complete with accessories each day or the same pair of jeans for the whole weekend. It's all about the music, ey? So express yourself in whatever way you wish. Hence the reason my right breast is saying hanging out in half of these photos. Why the hell not. So yes, this is why Urban Outfitters are my favourite go-to for festivals; they cater to everyone, from the 'I'm going to go batshit crazy and wear sequins and a rainbow of colours' to the Kurt Cobain wannabe to the boho princess. I always tend to gravitate towards boho pieces... ultimately I'd like to achieve a festival look that falls in between Vanessa Hudgens and Kate Moss. 

So yes, here we have two of my personal festival go-to's this year, the cowboy boot and the denim short. Pretty standard stuff. I've been on the hunt for a pair of denim shorts that don't reveal 80% of your bum cheek for the past few summers and I think I've finally found them in the form of these distressed badboys. I can't even talk about how much I love the boots; between the gold detailing on the toe and the western stitching it's just... yesyesyes.

SO, I hope you liked this first look - the other two will be coming atcha throughout the week (with no more breasts on show. Promise).

Also, I feel I should explain the second photo down... I got bored halfway through the photos, like I always do, so Rob told me to just get on with it and 'get my groove on'. I'm not one to disobey an order, and so I started dancing and whapping out some pretty strong moves. Rob let me do this for a good 30 seconds before telling me that there was a couple behind me trying to get past (who you can juuust see over my left shoulder). Painful, painful stuff.

How to get Kim Kardashian's Ass in 1 Easy Step

Well hey, strangers! Or really, I'm the stranger here... I was a bit rubbish at uploading when I was in Greece wasn't I? The two weeks leading up to it were manic with soon-to-come collaborations and then in Greece we were literally busy 24/7 - blog posts coming next week for anyone who's wondering - so, in short, I was a bit shit. But here I am, back with something I thought I wasn't into any more; the co-ord! I was absolutely obsessed with them last year and then kind of slowly drifted away, but when I spotted these two bits on Missguided's new-in my love was re-ignited. They're not technically a set (don't tell anyone) but, I have to say, I think they match pretty well. I'm such a paradox - sometimes I want to dress like Keith Richards and sometimes all I want in life is to be Sofia Vergara... literally one end of the spectrum to the other there. I was originally supposed to be part of a girl-boy twinset (but, like Dwight Schrute, I ate my twin pretty early on in the womb) so I always joke to my Mum that that's why I swing between wanting to be a boy and a girl.

Well, things got quite dark quite quickly there, didn't they? But yes, as we can see, this was more of a Sofia Vergara day and so I popped on what I have now deemed, 'The Skirt That Gives you Kim Kardashian's Arse' - not that I'm saying mine is anywhere near that magnificent, but I swear ruching is a girl's best friend - and little matching top. Missguided's New-In is, as always, freakin' amazing; I've done the maths and this two-piece comes to a grand total of £30 (I didn't say it was hard maths). Madness, eh? I've popped together a few of my favourite bits from the site below which you can click on to be taken straight to, or you can browse the whole new-in selection instead if you so wish.




OH lastly - and whilst we're still on the subject of Kimmy K - how incredible is this white lace bodycon dress? Hands down one of my favourite things on site right now.

Happy bank holiday!

Day to Night with H&M

Everything I'm wearing is from the H&M summer collection

Bonjourno! Today's post is written to you all the way from our incredible room at The Blue Palace resort in Crete (which has its own infinity pool attached to the room - mad, eh? - but more on that later!). Today's post is a 2 for the price of 1 because I liked H&M's summer collection so much I couldn't choose between doing an evening or a daytime look, so just went bananas and did both. I'm sure I don't need to tell you all how wonderful the H&M summer collection is; a) it's modelled by Victoria's Secret Angels and b) H&M smash it pretty much every year, I don't actually remember the last time I didn't buy my holiday clothes from them. My particular favourite from this season is the palm print bikini, which genuinely comes in at £7.98 for the whole set... utter madness. They also have a high waisted bikini in the same print which is absolutely beautiful. In all honesty, Greece kind of crept up on me and I wasn't feeling bikini ready in the slightest, but I just repeated the old, 'if you have a bikini and a body then you've got a bikini body' mantra, had a few shots and was ready to go. Kidding. I had a lot more than a few shots. 

I hope you liked the two looks, and you can check out the full H&M summer collection here!

ASOS Wishlistin'

- As always, just click on any items you like and it'll take you straight to them! -

It's been a while since I've done a good wishlist and since my ASOS 'saved items' has expanded somewhat sizeably in the past few weeks I thought I'd share my favourite picks with you! Quite colourful for me eh? I'm much more comfortable dressing for Winter - lots of layers and lots of black - and I always find my style gets more... all over the place when the sun's out. My favourite picks have to be the Ace of Hearts bag (coolest thing I've seen in a while) and that beautiful coral paisley print playsuit (tongue-twister alert)... although I do have a soft spot for the burger jumper because.. well, it's a burger on a jumper.

Well, best be off, it's time to pack for Greece! And by that I mean procrastinate for five hours before panic packing at midnight.
