Wednesday Wishlist- h&m and Versace!

Yup, this week's Wednesday Wishlist is specially selected from the Versace for H&M collection!!

When I was watching Made in Chelsea the other day and the advert came on I got soo excited! The stuff is amazing. I prefer it to the other designer and H&M collaborations because there's something so special about it; its not in the slightest bit plain.
On their own I'll admit some of the pieces don't look very wearable (especially the men's collection- check out this!), but they just need to be styled right. The skirts look so bright (see 4 below) but paired with a black top, tights and some killer heels and I think they're awesome. I love how glamorous a lot of it feels! 

You can tell from the ones I've chosen that I'm attracted to the stuff I think is easier to pull off. I do think the other items are really cool, but most of the items above would actually be pretty wearable whilst still looking really special.
The leggings (1) and the leather jacket (3) are probably my favourite, I really really want them!!

I think looking at the collection the best word to describe it all is 'special', because its all so unique! I guess that's what you get from designer things, and that's why I love the H&M collaborations- you get the designer touch at a slightly-more-reasonable price and made somewhat casual as well.

What do you think of the collection? Grim, gorgeous, or is it a grower? It was the latter for me I think.

What's going on?


Just thought I'd do a little update post!
Basically I have broken my camera (I knew I would- I have an awful habit of dropping it when I've had too much to drink- this is why I took out accidental damage cover!), so there won't be any new OOTD posts for a while  :( However, I have lots saved on my computer from months ago that I didn't post! So I'll still be posting, they'll just be OOOTD's (old outfit of the day's).

I have my formative exam a week tomorrow...aahh! I know technically they don't mean anything, but I am worried. I do care how well I do, just so I don't have to have a major freak-out if I do appallingly. We had our anatomy formative last week, but it went pretty rubbish to be honest, but ah well. It'll just mean a Christmas break full of revising for the January summative exams!

I also have new glasses! It pained me to fork out over £130 for being able to see, but I wasn't able to read any of the lecture slides (kinda important) and I knew exactly which ones I wanted and unfortunately they weren't in the £25 range...When I went to collect them I forgot how round they were and wasn't sure, but I'm used to them now and I do like them, even if my friend does call me Harry Potter!! :P I probably will only wear them for lectures though.

Glasses: Missoni via. Specsavers

The other day I went for lunch with said friend, just to Wetherspoons, it was ever so casual, but every now and then I like to wear a nice semi-smart outfit even if we're only going high street or somewhere.
So here is my over-dressed outfit :)
Top: H&M
Cardigan: Mango

Skirt: Topshop
Bag: Debenhams
Shoes: River Island
Ring and necklace: Dorothy Perkins
Bracelet: Primark

I bought the skirt in the Topshop sale a few weeks ago. I'd gone in the week before and been eye-ing it up big time, but I couldn't really justify spending £30 on it when I'm on a student budget, so I was thrilled when it was in the sale.

I got very over-excited when I saw the new j2o drink- Glitter berry!! I think its for the festive season, and it does have a nice, spicy edge to it, a little like mulled wine, except not wine-y...if that makes sense.... The flavour is actually red grape, cherry and a bit of spice. Anyway, the most exciting bit of it was the glitter! It looks like thick, sparkly shower gel (except it tasted must better).

Have you tried the new j2o yet? What did you think?

Wednesday Wishlist (NEW!)

I've decided to have a new weekly post called 'Wednesday Wishlist'. Because if I can't afford all the beautiful things I want, I may as well share them with you!

1. Top of my list this week is this beautiful cape. It is just amazing!

2. These shorts are just perfect for the party season, without being too dressy. I think I may have to have them.

3.  It may be just my fascination with the human body (ooh, hang on, I'm sure that's a quote from my med school application...!) but I do love ribs and bones detail, for example this is one of my favourite tops. These tights may have been initially for Halloween but I would wear them all year round! My only wonder is...who would go out in public with the hip bones on show??!...
Oh, and by the way, if you see any tops with bones on, or I particularly want a skeleton jumper, please let me know :)

4. I've been wanting these leggings for a while now, and I think I will buy them. I just have soo many pairs of plain black leggings, I would like to have some that are a bit more interesting, like these, plus if you haven't noticed by now I do love a bit lot of leopard print!!

5. Another pair of shorts here. I'm really loving leather shorts, but the colour of these are so funky without being too ridiculously bright. And £19.99? Bargain!

What do you think? And what's top of your wishlist this Wednesday?

Much love,

"What's scary about cats??"

...was one response to my Halloween outfit...spoilsport! :P
In all fairness I'm actually a bit scared of cats...not a fan, sorry cat-lovers!!

My Halloween outfit isn't all that exciting, but I was running around like a loony because I wanted to be a corpse bride, but my white lacy dress is too short! I really didn't fancy flashing- now that really would be frightening!!

Ears: Topshop
Top: Topshop (actually my flatmate's- thank you, Rachel!!)
Leggings: H&M
Shoes: New Look
Bag: New Look
Necklace: Topshop
Contents of bottle: Vodka and Vimto haha ;)

Now this outfit's a bit'd you like my inflatable pumpkin head?? ;)

Headgear: Wilkinsons
Top: New Look
Cardigan: Mango
Necklace: Topshop

I went home for the weekend and we had a little family Halloween party which consisted of take away, Krispy Kreme donuts and X Factor (I haven't watched it at all this year, but it wasn't very Halloweeny this year was it??! And most of the acts were rubbish. I get the feeling I've not been missing a lot.) Very indulgent, I'm sure you can tell.


This is the 'Spooky Citrus Gloss', but it's basically the same as GLAMOUR magazine's birthday Krispy Kreme- the glaze has glitter in it so it looks like lipgloss, which is my absolute dream as it mixes my greedy and my girly sides, win!

And we decorated our flat back at uni as well- this is George, the spider

Hope you all had a spooky Halloween :)
