Top Picks #53


1.Jumper, £45 – Yumi*

I remember Yumi did a very similar jumper a few years ago. I coveted it then and once again I want one. Though I still prefer it without the camera straps.

2. Necklace, £19.50 – Eclectic Eccentricity

Love this so much.

3. Jumper, £38 – Oasis*

Of course it’s another striped jumper but this one has cute little bows on the hips. A fun twist on a classic.

4. Top, £25 – Joanie*

Joanie really need to stop doing this to me. First the dinosaur striped tee I wrote about here and now this.

5. Earrings, £19.42 – Jamber Jewels @ Etsy*

Since a lot of my earring collection is past it’s best – I’m on the hunt for suitable replacements. This pair of mismatched earrings is simple but quirky.

6. Bookends, $69 – Modcloth*

I don’t really have a need for bookends, at least not at the moment but there was just something about these. They remind me of the Golden Gate Bridge and Topher’s and my honeymoon.

7. Necklace, £12.50 – Eclectic Eccentricity

I could stare at this necklace all day; it’s just so pretty. I’ve always had a fascination with the moon so this accessory would definitely fit right into my look.

8. Swimsuit, £60 – Boden*

So first of all, it’s nowhere near swimsuit season. And second of all – I rarely go swimming. Finally third, I’m happy with the swimsuit I have. However you can’t deny how awesome this one is. It looks like something a 1950s bombshell would wear. Plus it comes in loads of patterns and I want them all.

9. T-shirt, £18.67 – Redbubble

I’ve fallen in love with Redbubble over the last couple of months. It’s the perfect place for gifts as you can really niche it to what you’re interested in. Great for my nerdy crew and I. I’ve found loads of Disney, Harry Potter and other stuff but this t-shirt was just so cool. I feel more at home in t-shirts these days so this is ideal.

10. Dress, $89 – Modcloth*

Again, summer is a long way off but this dress looks like the perfect thing to see out those too warm days. Because there were a lot of them last year! I don’t know why everyone is so shocked every time summer eventually arrives – we do get good weather sometimes on our little island.

Top Picks #51

  1. Bag, £65 – Accessorize*

More stars I know! But look how pretty and it’s leather so you know it’ll last.

  1. Jumper, £40 – Oasis*

How amazing is this collar? I love it so much. I’ve seen slightly similar ones in the past but it’s usually something like cats, never seen it done with zebras. I can easily see this as something you could dress up or down and would go with skirts, trousers and jeans. Get in my wardrobe.

  1. T-shirt, £12 – Dorothy Perkins*

I used to say this phrase sarcastically when people asked me how life was but these days (especially not working in an office), I actually am. Sure things aren’t perfect but they sure as hell are a whole lot better.

  1. Dress, £24.50 – Joy

I spy a pretty dress! This kind of reminds me of a striped dress I used to have a few years ago. Best thing is that this is on sale!

  1. Skirt, £35 – Joanie

I really seem to be drawn to this style of skirt recently. I really like how summery this one is. And it has pockets – bonus!

  1. Print, £11.59 – We Are Extinct @ Etsy

This print is so true! My furbabies definitely keep things chipper around this house. How can I be sad with those two looking at me? Topher definitely agrees.

  1. Trainers, £34.99 – ASOS*

I suddenly find myself drawn to seeking out a pair of comfy but cute lace up trainers. I have my high top converse which I love but I just want something to act as an in between those and my ballet pumps. Still dithering over what colour but these ASOS ones are nice. Plus I do love a bit of glitter.

  1. Bedding, £27.99 – New Look

I love love love this bedding set! Unfortunately Topher does not. So it can never be mine *sobs. Though in actual fact it can never be mine because they only do it in a double.

  1. Pin, £14.08 – Bottle of Clouds @ Etsy

This pin just makes me smile. Love it. Describes both my cats! Sadly it only ships within the USA – boo.

  1. Blouse, $49.99 – Modcloth*

A blouse with dinosaurs on and a bow at the collar – what more could I ask for?

Top Picks #50

  1. Hen Party Sash, £15 – Oh Squirrel @ Etsy

With my hen party on the horizon, I’ve been thinking about what I’m going to wear. I’m not really one for the L-plates, fluffy deely boppers and various penis related paraphernalia so this sash fits the bill. Plus it features my signature polka dots. Perfect!

2. Necklace, £20 – Layla Amber @ Etsy

I love everything in this etsy shop but this necklace especially wins my heart. It’s so bright and cheerful and just makes me smile. It would look great with any bright coloured outfit and even bring some colour to my all black looks I’ve been sporting lately.

3. Dress, £45 – Joy

Officially in love with this Valley of the Dolls dress. Even though it’s out of stock of my size (noooo!) The length looks perfect, it’s got an elasticated waist and I’m always up for a cactus print. This looks like the perfect dress to wear on my honeymoon. I really seem to be into navy at the moment…

4. Glass, £15 – Urban Outfitters*

This glass is all kinds of amazing. What is it with me and novelty stuff? Don’t know, don’t care – just get me to Urban Outfitters.

5. Earrings, £14 – Mica Peet @ Etsy

How pretty are these earrings? I love them. More stars of course and I love the galaxy style circles underneath. So cute.

6. Dress, $88 – Unique Vintage

This dress is so pretty! It reminds me of holidays and sunshine. Looks like the skirt would be awesome to twirl in too.

7. Book, £20 – Amazon*

I’m a big fan of Geraldine’s blog so I can’t wait to read this. She always has me in stitches so I have high hopes for this book.

8. Maxi dress, £85 – ASOS*

So I may have already ordered this! I needed something to wear for my cousin’s wedding that’s the week before mine. How perfect is this dress? I love the sparklies! Plus I can wear flats. I can’t wait to see it in person.

9. Phone case, £15 – Oliver Bonas*

Seriously considering getting this phone case. My current one though lovely is starting to die. I love the sketchy style of this one.

10. Shoes, $41.99 – Modcloth*

Shoes that have watermelons on them! Watermelons and shoes! These are hilarious and I love them. Not badly priced either.

Top Picks #48

  1. Embroidery Hoop, £24 – Stitching Business @ Etsy

I really like the design of this embroidery hoop. I wish they had a few more options with different designs and colours of houses though.

2.  Sandals, £29 – Accessorize*

I really like the star cut out detail on these sandals. They look like they’d be perfect for a city break paired with skinny jeans and a laid back tee.

3. Sundress, £40 – Joanie

And they’ve done it again. Joanie have brought out another sundress I am in love with. So much love for this one.

4. Notebook, £27.50 – Paperchase

I know it’s awhile until I need another bullet journal but when that time does come, this one is definitely a contender. It has grid pages which I think will make doing layouts a whole lot simpler. It’s leather too, which gives it a luxury feel.

5. Swimsuit, £28 – Joanie

Joanie has a swimwear range! I don’t really see the straps being particularly supportive on this particular suit but I love the print.

6. Brooch, £60 – Tatty Devine

This brooch is awesome! So cute. Apparently it has a view finder that you can really look through – how cool is that?

7. Dress, $584.99 – Modcloth*

I’m not usually one for strapless dresses but the print on this one is way too eye-catching to ignore. It makes me want to go somewhere sunny and hot like Cuba. I didn’t realise it was by Anna Sui straight away but after I did, I wasn’t surprised that I picked it. I used to idolize Anna Sui as a teenager. She made me want to be a fashion designer.

8. Earrings, £22 – From My Bear Hands @Etsy

These earrings are so sparkly and lovely! I can’t wait until my ears are healed and I can start wearing other earrings.

9. Shoes, £35 – Dorothy Perkins*

I’m in love with these shoes. It’s a shame I don’t wear heals though. I wish they did them in a flat sandal design. They do have them in a flat mule design but I don’t really like mules. For a klutz like me they’re recipe for disaster!

10. Dress, £34 – Minimum Mouse

This print is awesome! Unfortunately it’s out of stock at the moment but here’s hoping it comes back soon.

Top Picks #47

  1. Light, £32 – Urban Outfitters*

I really want this cloud light for my office. It would be perfect in there! I’d put it on the wall above my computer.

2. Top, £12 – Dorothy Perkins*

I love the colour and the detail on the bottom of this top. It’s so fun and summery.

3. Brooch, £7.77 – Whistleburg @Etsy

How cute is this brooch? I love dinosaurs and I love sugar skulls so this combination is awesome!

4. Cushion, £32 – Nikki McWilliams

The hunt is on for purple cushions for the living room! Topher is a fan of party rings so this one would be the perfect addition. It’s been hard trying to find fun ones so far. Any other suggestions?

5. Dress, £75 – Emily and Fin

This print is everything! I love Emily and Fin dresses. How great is it that they do the same print in so many styles? There have been so many times that I’ve loved a print but the dress style itself just isn’t to my taste. Not here!

6. Candle, £1.50 – Primark

Primark has so much funky stuff in their homeware department at the mo! This cactus candle is top of my list. The perfect plant that I can’t kill…just melt slowly over time.

7. Pen, £3.50 – Paperchase

Because everyone needs a flamingo pen right? It could make friends with my two llama pens. I’m such a child. #sorrynotsorry

8. Cami, £24 – Topshop*

It’s so nice to see some colour in the shops again. This cami is perfect for summer and would be so versatile in my wardrobe. Not sure I’d be willing to play £24 for it though…

9. Bag, £27 – Accessorize*

Omg cat backback! I love the detail on this.

10. Swimsuit, $89.99 – Modcloth*

You know I can’t resist a polka dot print! This swimming costume is the perfect shape. Need and want!
