It's no secret to all that know me, I am obsessed with nail varnish.
The first step is admitting it...

I must get it from my mum, I have at least 100 different colours and I expect her collection isn't far off. It's rare that I don't have my nails painted and I buy one probably once every two weeks. During my last trip to American Apparel I noticed that they have now released a collection of varnishes (yes of course I purchased one!). They are great colours and bang on trend for this season, possibly not the best when it comes to being chip proof, but I was happy with it all the same.

It may not be a Mulberry...

... but it sure is soft.

I have recently blogged about my love for designer bags and how I really want a Mulberry satchel, but it seems we all do, as it's sold out anyway. Of course my problem was the price, so I decided to keep my eyes peeled for a high street version. I found this little beaut from ASOS, £65 and real leather it's not a bad buy. It'll do for now anyway, until the Mulberry is mine.

Gotta Love a Good Stripe.

I'm a big big fan of stripes. Although a stripey crew neck has always been a wardrobe staple, stripes seem to be everywhere this summer- goody!

This Zara beaut is definitely going to be my next purchase, once that student loan touches base this will be mine...
And if I had the legs for it/liked my legs, I'd be in these Zara bad boys all the way from the beach to the club... but I don't, so I'll leave them for the size 8 girls out there.

Lucky for me, this Topshop number covers up the legs, lovely jubly. Another post loan purchase p'haps?

Not sure if I'll be investing in this one, also Topshop, (seem to have an odd craving for skirts at the moment, bizzare!) but I love this Jacket. I think it kills it because when I look at it I picture it on my Mum, she'd look one hot milf in it.

As you can see, I like stripes. A lot.

Double Denim.

The line between making double denim look good or bad is thin. You could end up looking like my dad...

We even match sometimes!

Dad doesn't even realise his double denim is on trend and he doesn't really look "trendy" either.
The catwalk proposes we look like this....

Which I'm not so sure about either, still seems to slighty resemble my dad, but this time looking although she's taken a tumble and her nan has patched up the knees. I prefer Alexa's style, contrasting denims, a safe way to embrace the trend, without looking like Mr Widdowson. (Love you Dad!) This is what I have and shall continue to sport, despite the catwalk trends.

Nothing Like a bit of Primarni

Like many of us, I love a good bargain and an easy place to go searching for one of those is of course, Primark. I saw this jem on Sunday, plastic weaved black number, with a slinky gold chain. Perfect for those summer nights in Ibiza, pop it across the body so my arms are free for all that waving in the air, like I just don't care...

Investment Pieces & The Shopping Fund

After [another] long absence (I blame third year uni work) I'm back!

Like many women out there, I have a fund. A shopping fund. I put a bit of money away whenever I can to save up for those investment pieces that will be fashion classics. My latest fund is for the Chanel 2.55, I have been longing for this bag for bloody ages! But due to my trip to Tokyo, the Chanel fund is back to square one. But soon I hope to hope this little beauty in my arms...

(I sound a little obsessed... I know... I am.)

And after this purchase I have already thought about my next fund, it has to be a Mulberry. I'm yearning after the Alexa bag at the moment, this could change, depending on how long it takes for me to save up that is!
