Excuse Moi?

I'm supposed to be budgeting, but I couldn't resist when I saw this OPI nail polish. It's from the Muppets movie range, and is named Excuse Moi (for Miss Piggy, I presume). The polish is pink glitter, with some rainbow pieces as well. At £10.50, it was quite a lot to pay, but it was definitely worth it - I'm pretty sure it's my favourite polish ever

Turning Twenty

I was lucky enough to spend my 20th birthday in Paris with my wonderful friends. Of course, I took my trusty disposable cameras with me, and ate too many macaroons.

Piccadilly Circus & Hyde Park Gate

My friend and I took a trip our local Nails Inc manicure bar this afternoon, as an end of Reading Week treat. She chose the purple-y Piccadilly Circus, while I went for the bright green Hyde Park Gate, which I'm really tempted to buy, especially as it's limited edition. I feel I should add that our matching Claddagh rings are not deliberate.

Autumn Leaves

Despite sending most of this gorgeous heatwave inside, at work, I've enjoyed the chance to wear some of my summer clothes again. I wasn't expecting this weather though, so they shoes that have been glued to my feet these past few days are these desert boots from New Look. They're perfect for keeping my feet cool but great for kicking through the already fallen leaves.

Westfield Stratford

 I went to the new Westfield shopping mall in Stratford on Wednesday. It's absolutely huge, I feel like I didn't manage to see all of it. Quite a few of the shops weren't open yet, but all of the ones that were all really busy (apart from Topshop, which was dead).
At the Jamie's Italian for cocktails and dessert.
The Khiels store gave me some lovely samples, and the Zara and Topshop had some great pieces (several of which I bought). There are a lot of high street stores, even a Primark, but all of the shops are well designed, more modern, and look great. 
I wore a Topshop jacket, Whistles trousers, Office ballet pumps and an H&M bag.
I'd definitely recommend a trip, but not until the hype has died down slightly - I was there at 7:30 on a Wednesday and it was heaving
Has anyone been to Westfield? Are you planning on making a trip in the future?

Glitter shoes

Call it Dorothy Syndrome, but I love a good pair of glittery shoes. I was browsing in Zara with my friend and I couldn't not buy these shoes. They remind me of a pair of Manolo Blahniks I saw at his exhibition at Liberty. I don't when or where I'm going to wear them, but I'm very glad that I bought them.

What I Wore: In My Garden

Making the last of the summer weather in the spider-filled garden of my new house. I'm still not sure how I feel about my Carrie skirt with black tights, so this may be one of the last times I get to wear it until next year. I wore my Whistles Carrie skirt (whose hem is sadly fraying at an alarming rate), with a striped H&M t-shirt, Office shoes and Ray Ban sunglasses.

As winter approaches, my love for all things tartan reignites.

To cheer myself up last week, I bought the Chanel Peridot nail polish. It is definitely worth the hype that surrounds it, and it is definitely not sold out, as all the magazines are saying. In the bottle, it looks like it could be green, gold or deep blue (like the peridot stone itself). When applied, the polish changes colour as it catches the light - it can look emerald green, yellow gold, and even black in some lights.
Peridot is the first designer nail polish I have ever bought and I'm very glad I did, even with the £17.50 price tag.

New House

I finally moved into the house that I'll be living in for my next year at university on Friday. It is so lovely - I feel really lucky to be living here. 
I bought my Paul Smith-esque bedding in the Habitat closing down sale.

My favourite photos from the disposable camera I took to Italy.

Every outfit Cher Horowitz wears in Clueless. Now, where did I put my plaid skirt and knee high socks?

Chelsea Embankment

My new favourite nail polish - Chelsea Embankment by Nails Inc. I was worried the glitter would be sparse and my nail would show through, but with three coats it looks great.

What I Wore: Stripes

Couldn't decide whether or not I wanted to wear vertical or horizontal stripes, so I wore both, justified by this outfit Carrie Bradshaw wore in the final episode of Sex and the City. I got my skirt from ASOS about three months ago, and it's still available online. I wore it with a Zara top, Ray Ban sunglasses, Toms and H&M bag.

Just Kids

While I was on holidays in Switzerland, my friend lent me a copy of 'Just Kids' by Patti Smith. I was dubious, as I'm not the biggest fan of autobiographies. I absolutely loved it. Patti Smith's writing, particularly her attention to detail, whether it was what the colour of the hotel room walls were, or what she and Robert Mapplethorpe were wearing when they met Bob Dylan, was absolutely perfect. 
I Googled her as soon as I got home too see some more photos of her (there are a few dotted sporadically around in the book). 
All I want to do now is run away to New York with a beautiful boy and wear incredible jewellery with oversized shirts and tight jeans.
