Call Me Love

About a month or so ago I shared with all of you that I'm getting into jewellery making. I just wanted to share my latest necklace, but mainly the influences behind this particular piece. I love vintage jewellery and by far my favourite pieces are the pearl and gold Chanel designs.


For the piece I made I sourced vintage gold and pearl floral buttons that shared the classic Chanel-esque qualities. Hope you all like it! x

Call Me Strong

Some of my favourite things recently are shimmered fabrics, khaki and black. And whether it be make-up or accessories, you can't go wrong with strong pops of gold, silver and burgundy. x

Call Me Crazed

And the monochrome madness continues at Paris Fashion Week. Chanel and Valentino were by far my favourite collections, officially in love! x
Chanel - Polka-dots and pearl details, Chanel at it's best
Valentino - Lace, lazer cut florals and sheer fabrics. Swoon.

Call Me High

I'm a sucker for anything with skulls and after seeing this necklace I knew it had to be part of my jewellery collection. It sits perfectly over my staple high necked LBD from Forever 21. I hope everyone had a great weekend! x

Call Me Monochrome

Just wanted to share some favourites from a few collections from SS13. So far all of the black and white pieces have been blowing my mind. I guess I'll be veering towards a monochrome uniform in the upcoming months. x
Alexander Wang - Clean, sharp and sexy silhouettes. Oh, he never disappoints.
Marchesa - Intriguing and unique embroidery, feminine shapes and gorgeous fabrics. Yes please!
Misha Nonoo - Cute, fun with an old Hollywood twist.
Vera Wang - Lace jacquard and embellishment, yummy!

Call Me Laced

After months of issues with builders and various other set backs my room renovation is finally getting started. I'm so excited, and with only my room on my mind I want to share a few more inspirational ideas for room d├ęcor. x

Call Me Spirit

I treated myself to a new perfume a few weeks ago and have been dying to write my thoughts. I always like waiting a while and wearing the fragrance a lot before I voice my opinions. I find it's always important to get a feel of how the perfume sits on me, and also whether I feel like it's something I'll be reaching for on a daily basis.

Especially Escada was my pick after seeing the ads on TV and in magazines. I loved playfulness of the ads and honestly the perfume didn't disappoint. The Rose hit is strong at first but slowly wears away into a beautiful light combination of the Rose and Ylang Ylang. Mixed with sugary scents of Pear all mixed with a warm tone of Musk running through the perfume I fell in love. I did find it was a bit to sweet for really hot summer days but I think it will definitely be my staple scent in the transition from Summer to Fall. 
Just want to say a big thank you to all my followers. I hit 100 and it means so much to me that all of you like my blog! Super big kiss X.

Call Me Jam

I've been getting a bit creative lately which can never be a bad thing. I got inspired by the Felder Felder skinny studded belt below and decided to create my own.
Here's how I did mine:
 An old black skinny belt, studs (screwback spikes which I got off ebay), pen and a ruler to mark the positions of the studs accurately.
Here's the finished product! Worn with a Zara top and New Look black maxi skirt. x

Call Me Golden

The weather is amazing in London town this week, perfect for sitting around with an ice cold beverage whilst watching the Olympics (go team GB!). I did enjoy a lovely shopping trip with my friend even if it was blisteringly hot, and got an amazing vintage find which I'll be sure to share with you in a future post! x

Call Me Clear

I mentioned in one of my previous posts that excitingly I'm getting my room decorated. Up until now I was just so clueless to what I wanted and I think I've finally decided on a rough idea. It all came to me when I went out for brunch with my sister and her friend. We walked past this gorgeous patisserie with the most unbelievably scrummy looking cupcakes in the window (for those of you who follow me on Instagram you may have seen this picture already) -

It was just perfect, I'm thinking a blush dusty rose, brown (as my bed is brown leather) and fresh pops of white, with a bit of gold accents. If you can't imagine what it might look like, I've got a few pictures of inspiration below. Let me know what you all think! x
