OOTD: Little Bit of Tartan;

OOTD; Little Bit O' Tartan

It's been a long time since I've done an outfit of the day! So here we go, today, it is so grey and miserable outside, and of days like this I always love to just shove on my casual, comfortable clothes.

For today's outfit I paired these acid wash jeans, with a baggy vest top for that causal look. I added a pair of studded biker style boots and a leather jacket as these are just my wardrobe staples! For Christmas I got this gorgeous tartan scarf, so of course, I've been wearing it with everything.

To top this outfit off I just did my typical nude eye, added a small black back and a few simple accessories.

What is your go-to outfit when it's a grey and miserable day? Let me know!

OOTD: Chilling Out At Home;

OOTD: Chilling at home;

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you've all been enjoying your holidays, I know I have, but now it's time to get down to business. At the end of 2013 I did let my blog slide a little, but I'm back and ready to get back into this!

Unfortunately I'm starting on a bad way, stuck at home, feeling sick! Yuck.. But I thought I'd do a little outfit of the day, for what I like to snuggle up in when I'm not feeling well. My typical outfit is some comfy leggings, a baggy t shirt, some fuzzy socks and an over-sized sweatshirt. I am absolutely loving Starbucks at the moment, so I couldn't resist treating myself to a Starbucks sweatshirt over the holidays.

Whenever I'm not feeling well (especially when it's a little chilly outside) I like to grab myself a nice hot chocolate, a packet of choc chip cookies and my iPod and just chill out, painting my nails or watching a film.

This is a bit of a boring post, but I missed this blog and wanted to get back into posting.

What do you lot like to do when you're feeling ill? Do you stay in pajamas all day? Do you stay in bed, or get up and watch a DVD maybe? Let me know!

New Year, New Start: Get Organised With Style;

Happy New Year everyone!

One of my new years resolutions was to try and be more organised; 'Try' being the main word here, as normally I am terrible at organisation. However I had a plan that would make me actually want to sort everything... Filofax!

Now for any of you that don't know what a Filofax is, it's a ring bound personal organiser that allows you to personalise how you use it; Whether that be as a diary, address book, appointments and notes or all of the above. As of lately Filofax have been bringing out newer models of organisers that are a lot more fashion foward and definitely aimed towards a youthful audience, which I guess is us.. Right?

This here is my Filofax that I was lucky enough to receive (big thanks to Jess for that!), it's one of their latest designs, The Original personal in the totally gorgeous fluoro pink colour. I tried to photograph the colour as best as I could, but a camera just can't seem to pink up the beauty of this colour (and it is definitely a lot more neon than it looks). So if you're not into bright colours, then this one way not be for you, but The Original does come in a huge amount of amazing colours.

As I was so excited to start using this beauty, I definitely got a lot more excited about organising (that was my goal, so yay!). I created my own front cover and dividers in photoshop, using images I found online that I loved, just to add a little more fun and make it a little more personalised.

There's also a great little jot pad slotted in the back, which is perfect for all the lists I write! I am an obsessive list writer, I just can't seem to stop..

I've looked through many of the different style available on the Filofax website, and I must say, The Original is definitely one of my favourites. Not only do they come in a range of fashionable colours (and a patent finish if you prefer that). But the overall look is just flawless. Made from real leather, this is great quality and lovely and soft. With exposed rivets and a cute button on the fastening this is definitely one of the most fashionable Filofaxs around.

So if your New Year's resolution is to get more organised, plan things out more, or even if you just fancy trying one out, then head on over to the Filofax website and maybe have a look around!
