Back to Basics

I love blogging, but as a student it can be hard to keep up to date with current trends and continuously refresh my wardrobe as, lets face it, we’re a bit hard up when it comes to money. Clothes are my main priority – as soon as I get a lil’ bit of money, I’m dreaming of what’s top of my list to get my hands on and how I can weave it into my chameleon fashion collection. As all students or previous students (and probably non-students) are aware of, however, we do like our partying – and so sufficient funds must be dedicated to socialising with friends on a weekly basis.

If you are visiting, though, I’ll share with you some of the highlights of our interesting trip below!

Lust List: April

So much for April showers! This week’s mini heatwave has got me all excited for summer, so some things I’m after may be a little optimistic for this month… but there’s nothing wrong with being prepared! If you read my previous post you’ll be aware that I’m seeing red (pun intended) and it’s gonna be my go-to colour for the foreseeable future, along with good old denim and a dose of basket bags.
