Other than my head looking HUMONGOUS  in my Spirithood, I love this outfit! It’s so comfortable and cosy and definitely perfect for A/W. If you didn’t know, I am a massive fan of Not For Ponies (you can see here and here), and this t-shirt is another of my favourites. Their t-shirts and jumpers are all SO soft and well made, and the appliqués always make me smile. I also love this dress from Matalan, I’ve had it for ages, and it’s so nice to wear underneath things and is such a good lazy option. Then of course I have my Spirithood which I won and unless you didn’t watch this video, you won’t know how much fun I have when I wear it. Now, the necklace! I finally have a necklace with my real name on it! Woop! I’ve always loved the idea of a scrabble necklace, and this one is so nice! It’s really well made, and I love how it’s so jingly when I move (odd, I know)! My name would be the worst in a game of scrabble though… I mean 9 points… I guess you’d need to keep an eye out for a triple square! Do you like it? Well read on and you will be able to find out how to WIN your very own…

My Style: Christmas Is On The Horizon

By December 17, 2013 My Style

IT’S CHRISTMAS! …time! It’s official, even to you grinches out there, that it is Christmas!  The tree is up, the decorations are out, and the films are on AND I have snow falling on my blog (so festive)! So, what’s better than a bit of a novelty Christmas OOTD? Excuse the cray-cray hair… it was windy okay! Oh and FYI, I have tights on! 

my style ootd fashion blog ark clothing discount code not for ponies ootd teen fashionmy style ootd fashion blog ark clothing discount code not for ponies ootd teen fashion

What I Wore: Christmas Pudding Jumper £18.00* (Not for Ponies), Black Velvet Pinafore £22.99* (ARK, Hearts & Bows), Bobbly Santa Headband, & Chelsea Boots (Jumble Sale).

As I said this is a ‘novelty’ outfit, but I actually quite like it… I’m not sure these windy pictures really do the pieces justice, but all of them are really comfortable! I’ve always wanted a pinafore skirt, and this velvet one is perfect! It’s a really nice velvet too, the inside isn’t scratchy and it’s adjustable which is a plus! It looks like a skort in these pictures, but it’s just a plain skater skirt bottom, and I think even with a light t-shirt this could be an all year piece! (PLUS You can get 25% off at ARK with the code: TOLLY25 so happy shopping!) The jumper though… maybe just for winter! I love Not For Ponies, and this jumper is so so warm and snug! I love it to bits! The full appliqué is a Christmas Pud with a moustache! A moustache… I mean?! #christmasswagger

I can’t remember where this is from, or when I got it, but I love my bobbly santa headband! I walked in to McD’s to get a quick snack and by my surprise nobody even smiled at it which sort of made me sad, but oh well! Yes, I do wear it out… Look at that view though? So beautiful! We had a quick drink at this lovely cafe/bookshop and it was very cosy, and they had gorgeous twinkly lights! I really do love this time of the year and I can’t wait for the rest of my family to come over! 😀

my style ootd fashion blog ark clothing discount code not for ponies ootd teen fashionI never really do book reviews on here, but I got really excited about fellow blogger, Natasha from The Girl In The Lens‘ book, I just had to let you know about it! If you are a fan of The Hunger Games, you will love this book! ‘THE ELITES‘ is about a city in the future and the two main characters, Silver and Butterfly. Silver is a ‘Red’ and has even more of a struggle through the troubles she gets into, and Butterfly finds out more about his past. It’s a really interesting book and had me hooked the whole way through! Natasha is so nice, and has let me ask her a few questions about her writing…

When you were writing The Elites, did any of your past personal experiences go into it? I didn’t intentionally include events or experiences from my past, but I’m sure they affected how I wrote the book. The racial issues are definitely influenced by me being mixed race and having been brought up in two very different countries and cultures, and my time spent in Malaysia (where my mum is from) and travelling with my parents also inspired the cultural landscape of Neo-Babel. Especially all the food references!

Throughout The Elites you are extremely good at using metaphors, personification etc to describe things, what would be your biggest tip for keeping that up throughout your writing? Oh thank you! I’m so glad you thought so. My biggest tip for varied and unique description is to really immerse yourself in every scene. Imagine you’re there. Feel the slap of the wind on your face, the roar of the air rushing past your ears. Taste the bite of the wind-blown saltwater on your tongue. Just really try and put yourself in each and every scene, noticing every little detail. Then, when you come to describing it as you write, you’ll have so many different sensory experiences to draw from!

Who is your favourite character in The Elites? (Mine has got to be Butterfly!) Butterfly has pretty much been everyone’s favourite so far, which is great, as he’s one of mine too! I love how grounded and strong he is in his values, and how he keeps Silver steady, helping her through the darkest of times. People keep telling me off for giving Butterfly such a tragic story, since he’s such a nice guy!

my style ootd fashion blog ark clothing discount code not for ponies ootd teen fashionI’m not sure whether my brother really wanted this out on the internet, but I just had to put it up! He is a bit silly when I am trying to get good pictures… grr! I was so annoyed I had to clearly express myself *face palm* Hahaha!

Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

My Style: Not For Ponies*

By May 15, 2013 DIY & Lifestyle, Fashion, My Style

A while back I found an online store called Not For Ponies, and I thought it was super duper cute! It mixes basic pieces with cute twists in really good quality fabrics. Beckie at Not For Ponies was kind enough to send me 2 of the Pug Tops which are my favourite from the shop! They’re so basic yet so cute and versatile, plus there is a French Pug one!

not for ponies t-shirt reviews not for ponies t-shirt reviewsWhat I Wore:French Pug T-Shirt £20.00* (Not For Ponies), Floral Hareem Trousers €3.00 (Jumble Sale), Pink Belt (Oxfam), Mint Green Trainers £7.99 (H&M), Bracelet (Primark), DIY Sunglasses £2.03 (DIY Coming Very Soon!)

not for ponies t-shirt reviews not for ponies t-shirt reviews not for ponies t-shirt reviews not for ponies t-shirt reviewsnot for ponies t-shirt reviewsGirl’s Pink Pug T-Shirt £10.00* (Not For Ponies) – This was made bigger for me.

The grey one is my favourite top of the two. I really like the grey colour as it is sort of marbley. I also LOVE the french pug! It’s not just printed on, it is sewn on so it looks a lot better and feels much better quality, and is obviously going to stay put! There was one thing I did find with the French Pug T-Shirt, is that around the edges of the pug was a sort of brown-ish orange colour, which I thought perhaps was to do with ironing, but I really don’t think it matters too much. The fabric is very soft, and feels very strong and durable, yet nice and light, and I would say it is like Topshop quality, so pretty darn good! I like how it doesn’t fit perfectly, so it feels more comfy and it also looks great tucked into baggy trousers like these ones. Mixing it with the trainers makes it feel casual and preppy, and I really like the feel of that style. It will be perfect for summer where I live, as it will be light and comfy rather than something that sticks to my body and makes me feel gross! I also love the rolled up sleeve detail, because it makes it feel a bit more ‘styled’ and edgy. Pretty much, I LOVE THEM! I would also style the Pink Pug T-Shirt with a midi skirt and a the same shoes, for a more girly look, which I am sure you will see on this blog one day soon!

Not For Ponies is a pop-inspired lifestyle brand.  Everything is designed and hand made by them in their Manchester based studio. They have become well known for their quirky applique T Shirts and Sweaters, and have been featured in National Magazines such as Company, Reveal, Heat, Now, Closer, Bella, Mizz (Tolly Dolly Posh is featured in Mizz this tomorrow! – May 16th), Shout and Love It. They are inspired by all kinds of weird, whacky, cute and quirky graphic imagery and are fuelled by Earl Grey Tea and Hobnob biscuits. Their stock caters for Women, Men and Children in a variety of sizes, and XS or XL sizes can be made up! (Like I had done for me!)

Side Note: I would just like to thank all my readers who have supported me over the past week. I can now say that on the 29th May, I will be leaving France to London, because of YOU! You are getting me tho the Company Magazine Style Blogger Awards! Thank You!

(I am very grateful that Not For Ponies sent me 2 of their products to review. 100% of the words above are true, and are no way edited for the sake of having free products. I wish Not For Ponies a very enjoyable year!)

Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx
