Jellicle Cats

Leotard- H&M
Cat Skirt - Champagne Diamond
Belt - Vintage
Creepers - eBay

I can't tell you how excited I was when I got home the other day to see my cat skirt had arrived! I'm not usually the most enthusiastic person in the world but I screamed when this turned up. I bought it from Lucy at Champagne Diamond and have been lusting after it for ages but you know when you want something but you just never seem to get around to buying it? Well Lucy is also so lovely that she gave me a cheeky discount code which was the push I needed! I would definitely recommend checking out the online shop there are loads of cat and dog prints as well as some great Levi's for only £10! I bought a 10 and the sizing is really good, fits perfectly! 

I wore this outfit yesterday for my last day at head office. Quite sad because i've been interning there since June and really felt at home but it's also a good thing because I have been offered a full time job through the internship!! As you guys know i've been working part time at the Bristol shop over the past few weeks but now they have asked me to be the store manager! I was a bit reluctant at first because I don't have any management experience but more than anything they want me to take hold of the social media for the store as well as organise events and promotions- which pretty much sounds like a dream! I'm really excited now and am starting  next week, good news for the blog too because i'll have extra money to spend on clothes which I can show you guys! 

I had loads of really nice emails from the bloggers i've spoken to through Motel who have wished me good luck and thanks so much to those of you who follow me who have sent me a message :) 

#MotelXmas Blogger Party!

Monday night was the Motel Christmas blogger party and as a Motel intern I was lucky enough to be able to go along! I headed down at lunch time on the coach armed with Company Magazine and my favourite sensation thai chilli crisps and made my way towards the venue! It was at a really nice bar in Shoreditch called Floripa, which we decorated with balloons, presents and rails of gorgeous Motel clothes! I spent a lot of time blowing up balloons with a helium canister which ended up being hilarious because me and Hannah the other intern kept accidentally letting them go, so there ended up being 5 or 6 balloons on the ceiling, which I was hoping no one would notice! The doors opened at 6.30 and we only finished decorating at 5.45 so with limited time to get ready I bundled myself into the toilet back-brushed my hair, quickly put on some eyeliner and of course got changed into the gorgeous 'Wild One'. 

The first 50 bloggers through the door were lucky enough to receive a free item and me and Taz were in charge of talking everyone through the new collection and taking their top three choices. It was great to meet bloggers who I have followed personally as well people I have spoken to through Motel and ended up meeting some really great people! Quite a few people gave me their card which has made me realise that having a business card is essential to promoting your blog, lots of people asked me for my blog address and it would have saved a lot of time if I could have given them a card!

As well as the first 50 bloggers receiving an item from the new collection, there was also a whole host of other treats in store. Eylure were giving out free eyelashes, Lee Stafford (yes the actual Lee Stafford) was there curling hair and everyone was given a present when they left! 

I had a good look through the new collection and instantly fell in love with these new Galaxy pants! There like thinner, matte disco pants which is a lot more flattering if your a pear shape like me and I just love the colour! I'm hoping they're going to look nice on because I think the black and wine could be a new Winter staple! 

As for the rest of the night myself, Taz and Lora dominated the photo booth (which was such a good idea!) I could not stop laughing at the pictures and at the end of the night we managed to get all the Motel employees into the booth for one massive picture! 

You're A Wild One

The Wild One- Motel Rocks

I am basically in love with this dress! I've seen it loads of times on the internet whilst working at head office but it came in today with the shops delivery and I am head over heels! You know when you need to see something and feel the fabric in order to decide what you think of it? It's so unique and just lovely, I think i'm going to wear it to the Motel Bloggers Party on Monday! It's not my usual style because it's maxi length but for the party i'm thinking bare legs, a simple gold necklace and maybe red lips?  Just not sure which shoes yet, any suggestions? The bodice is so dramatic I think it needs to be simply styled but I can't wait to wear it! It's £65 on the website which is quite a lot but is £45 in the shop because the prices are lowered for the flagship store. We had a great delivery today with loads of off the shoulder items and Christmas dresses so if you live in Bristol I would definitely recommend a visit!

Fresh Meat

Just a quick post as I am so lame i'm considering going to bed in a minute! I went to the Hemel Hempstead indoor ski slope yesterday instead of Milton Keynes and it was AMAZING! Probably the most fun i've had especially as I was really scared; turns out it wasn't anywhere near as bad as I thought it would be! My body is aching so much now though so I think i'm going to need a bath and an early night!

My ASOS delivery came today :) I ordered these items and i'm very pleased! They are all fairly basic items which I love, I think it's essential to have a few plain t shirts, and love the variety at the moment with crop tops, off the shoulders and high neck lines! The black tee is a perfect basic, I have it already in white and burgundy, which I wear all the time, they are long enough to wear with jeans or legging but don't bunch out if you tuck them into a skirt or shorts! The leopard print skirt was only £9.50 and I can already tell i'm going to be wearing it all the time! It's quite short but to be honest I find most things quite short on me as i'm fairly tall! The crop is really nice but i'm not sure if i'll keep it, I do really like cropped t shirts and if this was an inch or two longer I would love it but I don't feel comfortable in it because of it's length!

Holly and Phil

This weekend was a really good one, had a great Saturday night out for my brothers birthday and generally felt horrible yesterday! I wore the Elsa dress and was surprised by how much I loved it, I don't usually wear body con because i'm really self conscious of being such a pear shape, but I had lots of lovely compliments and in the end didn't think it looked too bad! 

This week i'm back to working Wednesday- Saturday so have today and tomorrow to do some outfit posts. This evening i'm going to Milton Keynes to the indoor ski place. I've never been skiing before and I am a little bit scared, but after booking a skiing holiday in March I need to learn!

This outfit was from yesterday and makes me look about 12 years old, clearly my bra is not fitting well in the picture either haha embarrassing! I love this jumper from Topshop and have just worn it over my vintage denim shirt and teamed with some tights and the standard H&M body con skirt - lifesaver!

Hope everyone is having a nice day, i'm just sat in my pj's watching 'This Morning' and drinking a lot of orange juice!!

Walking In The Sand

Two outfit posts in two days I am on a roll! Today i'm worked at the Motel Bristol store and got a quick outfit post done before I left! I love this waterfall green skirt it was around £4 from eBay which is amazing and you can find it here in various colours! I'm wearing it with a basic ASOS black leotard and my black biker jacket, excuse the no shoes look! I'm not enjoying my photographs at the moment, I look a bit strange in them! I really need to find a good pose and setting for my outfit photographs so if anyone has any suggestions please feel free to leave them below! I think I prefer the white backdrop I was using before maybe I should go back to that!

Tomorrow is my brothers birthday so tonight after work i'll be rushing home to get changed and head out to celebrate, think we're having some people to the family house for drinks then heading into town. I'm planning on wearing the Elsa Dress from Motel I ordered it to the store and have my fingers crossed that I like it or there will be a blind panic when I get home trying to find something else to wear! It's not my usual style as it's a fancy body con but I love the baroque detail and am thinking I can dress it down with my chelsea boots and biker jacket! I still have a photo of the night I went out wearing the Laynie so over the next few days i'll put pictures of the Laynie and Elsa outfits up!

Furious Face

I have been a little bit rubbish on the blogging front the past 2 weeks, mainly because my boyfriend Tom who takes the pictures for me was away for a week with his band. I couldn't get the hang of balancing my camera on a shelf, pile of books anything that was the right height, so decided to just wait till he got back!

 This is an outfit that I wore last night to see Stealing Sheep, an all girl band who play alternative folk music and wear fantastic clothes! I'm wearing my black playsuit from Motel Rocks with a black cardigan, creepers and my lovely House of Harlow necklace. Sorry for the rubbish photo as the outfit was all black it was really hard to photograph and I look furious! I really like this playsuit because it's so basic but i'm not sure if it looks that nice on? I find playsuits hard to wear because they're usually too short in the body and this one definitely is! I tried on the L which was far too big and got the M but I don't feel very comfortable in it and don't think i'll be able to take my cardigan off whilst wearing it!

I have been working at the Motel shop a lot recently and am really enjoying it, it's great to be working with a brand that I love and has been great to combine my internship with a paid job!

In other news I went to see another band recently 'Peace' I was really looking forward to it but to be honest I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would! I was lucky to go with my friend who was writing a review and if your interested in music blogs/reviews then check out her blog here she's only just started it so it only has two posts but it's always good to hear about new music!
