I hope everyone is looking forward to the 3-day weekend! I have to work, so unfortunately mine is being cut short but I plan to make the most of the time I do have! I have a painting project in mind, which could get messy! I hope the weather brightens back up too, I want to bring my summer shorts out to play soon!
Two of my favourite things, Laduree & Cats.
Playing around with the A Beautiful Mess App.
Cute paper and stickers!
I miss this girl!
Sunday = Zara polka dots & The Great Gatsby at the cinema.
As much as I love going away and exploring new places, it's always nice to come home to my own bed! I went straight back to work after Paris, so not leaving the house on Saturday was blissful! I curled up in my comfy clothes and caught up on my blog reading, and wrote some letters and cards to the loveliest of people.
I had plenty of delicious food in Paris, including my very first falafel. Getting to eat out every day is one of my favourite things about going on holiday, especially when you eat in beautiful surroundings. Which brings me to the Louvre, what a wonderful building to sit and marvel at, and the inside is just as impressive, especially if you're an art fan! We found going late in the evening it was pretty quiet! (We actually went inside on out first full day, but walked past it again during the day later on).
Questions: 1. Would you consider yourself a shopaholic? Yes, I guess you could say that, although in the past couple of years I've become a lot more practical with my shopping choices and I've cut down on my shopping a lot! 2. How would you classify your style? I'd say it's pretty girly and simple, and comfortable, I hate wearing things that aren't comfy! Oh and I can't forget that I love a bit of sparkle in my outfits. I like to mix a bit of everything in there. 3. What store can you not leave without buying at least one thing? I don't think there is a store I always have to make a purchase in before leaving, but I do always find things I want every time I'm in Zara, or Anthropologie when I'm in London. 4. Where do you find the best deals? It has to be online! I hate paying full price for anything, I am always hunting around for some kind of discount code. I always make sure to check cash back sites too like ebates, Mr Reabtes and Top Cash Back before making any purchases online, the rebate money is always a nice little surprise when it comes in! I also like going to T.K Maxx when I'm in the right mood to hunt through the racks, I found some Valentino sunglasses for £22 once. 5. What designer are you willing to splurge for? If money was no object I would say Chanel & Miu Miu (I have my eye on a bag there at the moment), but for me I guess J Crew is more a luxury for me but I always try to purchase on sale or with a discount. 6. Do you have a go to shopping outfit? Normally jeans, flats and a tee, if I'm planning to try lots on. I also like taking a cross body bag so my hands are free to search the rails. 7. What is your guilty pleasure? (Not including makeup) I guess for me it's probably handbags, the most expensive thing in my wardrobe is my Miu Miu bow bag that I saved up for. At the moment I have also been purchasing a lot of jewellery, I'm addicted to Baublebar right now. 8. What is one staple clothing piece you cannot live without? Jeans, I am a jeans girl and wear them most of the time. 9. What is a trend you hope never goes out of style? Stripes, polka dots and glitter. 10. What trend did you love that passed way to quickly? I'm not really sure, I wear what I want whether it is in style or not! 11. Who is your fashion icon? I love Rachel Bilson and Lauren Conrad's style, but I love to find inspiration from pinterest and from bloggers. Some of my favourites right now are Gal Meets Glam, L.A in the bay, Devon Rachel and Stephanie Sterjovski.
