Primark Haul: Shoes

I was so excited to check out Primark when I was in London and I must say it was so crazy and different to how I thought.
There are hundreds of people in there running into you with their baskets and there are clothes and shoes everywhere!
If you rummage through you will find some awesome cheap finds.
Here are some shoes I picked up:

These are a gorgeous nude/peach colour pair of flats. They are comfortable and I love the girly detail with the bronze studs on the front. Because they are nude you can wear them with anything.
Price: 6 Pounds

This pair of sandals was originally going to be purchased in nude until Sabrina pointed out all my shoes would be that colour! Not a problem I picked them up in Black instead and I know they will get worn a lot.
Price: 6 or 8 Pounds

On my shopping list for my trip was a nude pair of heels. I have been lusting over getting a pair for ages and when I saw these I had to have them. They are simple and a nice height and a fake leather.
Price: 12 pounds

What do you think of my latest finds?

Europe Hauling: Scarves

Some scarves I have picked up from various places while on my trip.
I think scarves can make an outfit. It is like a statement necklace. You can spice it up with a scarf.
Whats your favourite way to wear them?

These two are gorgeous and were cheap from Primark. I picked up both variations as I know I will wear them a lot! Florals have become a staple for me.

If you saw one of my previous posts about stripes then you know I have been going crazy for them! Whatever oppurtunity I get! This particular scarf from H&M is long and wide and I love the navy instead of black.

This one is not from a store named "Somewhere in London" but was purchased by my boyfriend while he was visiting there recently. It says London all over it in different colours and I think it is definitely unisex. He borrows some of my scarves and I shall borrow his.

Yet another floral print but this one a little brighter. It was just as cheap as the ones from Primark and has cute tassles hanging from it. Very feminine and a perfect Summer scarf.

Where do you find cute scarves from? I think I need to get myself and Alexander McQueen one next.

Danish Fashion Spy

This may seem kind of stalkerish but I have been so impressed with the style the Danish women have. Tweens here dress like Kristen Stewart and older teens/women dress very similar to this woman pictured.
This woman was a Mum waiting at the train station and I thought it was an easy oppurtunity to snap a picture (I hope this is ok).
These Harem style pants are popular here and people aren't just wearing black either. They come in florals and other patterns too.

I am going to try make this a fashion segment while I am on holiday and when I can snap a picture of someone stylish I will post it.
What do you think of the Danish fashion? Does this woman inspire you? Maybe this is the same way women are dressing in your country. Let me know.

Vacation in Copenhagen

At the moment I am on holiday in Copenhagen! I have been in Europe for a week now and I love it here! I made a quick stop over in London for one night to do some shopping with the lovely Sabrina. I have a couple of posts coming to show you purchases from Primark and H&M.

I am leaving tomorrow for a week long trip to the Roskilde music festival where I will be camping for a week and watching lots of live bands. To be honest, camping is not my thing. I have never done it and this is going to be a tough week! Luckily its not too far to come back here and shower and refresh. This means posts for the next week are going to be scheduled. I have been having a great time fixing up the blog layout and getting posts up while being on holiday! I have so much more time! As for You Tube, at the moment it is a bit hard to update but I have SO many videos planned!

I will leave you with some pictures...

The boyfriends cat looking at the Summer view from the balcony. Such a cute moment.

OPI Red... the perfect red?

I got my infills done last week and chose this bright red colour by OPI called OPI Red and it may very well be the perfect red. It is not too orange in colour or too dark. It is simple and classic and a lovely red. Everytime I get my nails done I will be choosing a different colour but this may be a hard oneto beat.

What is your favourite red polish?

Simple and Classy - Stripes

Fashion blogs have become a new favourite thing of mine. I spend so much time at work with Bloglovin' open and searching for new blogs. I have since come across these two girls blogs and have found a fashion trend - stripes. They wear scarves, cardigans, tops and more all with this similar pattern. Click their photos to be taken to their blogs, the photos are from their blogs.


So these are my finds from my lunch break shopping today.

This cardigan is beautiful. It is long in the front and can be tied up or left loose. Because it is baggy the sleeves are tight which adds a nice balance. 
The detail in the back makes this so pretty and feminine. 
Temt: $19.95


This dress, a little too short to wear on its own for my liking but beautiful to wear with tights and a black cardigan. This one has the pretty detailing in the front.
Temp: Sale for $14.95

I am loving floral prints but as it is Winter here now I need to find a warmer way to wear them.

The accessories were simple, yet elegant and the makeup was to match.
