BOO! Evil Queen Inspired Halloween Shoot*

By October 30, 2015 General

Happy Halloween! I’m not a major Halloween person but for the past three years now I’ve published a little Halloween themed photoshoot and even after having the worst internet, almost losing the camera with my lens on it (okay, I embarrassingly admit it was in the cupboard the whole time) and being distracted by fanfiction (why is it such a thing?!), I finally have this year’s little edit… it’s short and sweet but I hope you like it… 🎃👻💀

WHAT I WORE: Faux Fur Coat (Jumble Sale) // Floral Jumper (Peacocks)* // Necklace (Claires)* // Floral Headband (Claires)* // Make-up (Claire’s)* & (Mixture of brands)


After receiving an awesome package from the lovely people over at Claire’s, I knew that I had to use the absolutely gorgeous floral headband from their Halloween range. The first thought was to use it as part of some sort of ‘evil queen’ style look so that’s what I’ve tried to achieve. It’s not quite as exciting as my previous costumes (2013 + 2014) as I didn’t have quite as much time and I basically made it up as I went along but I think it works and it could be some really last minute inspiration for anyone heading off to parties!

I think I might actually remove the spiders from it and use it through out the whole autumn/winter period as the colours are so pretty; what do you think? In terms of the rest of the outfit and look, I went for my big faux fur coat to create the sort of ruffled/high collar that you often see in spooky costumes. It’s sort of a gothic vibe but with a touch of vampireness to it as I just randomly decided to smudge the ombre lip I’d created. Did it work? Who knows… let me know in the comments, yeah?

Happy Halloween once again! See you soon… 🎃👻💀

My Style: Chanel A/W 14 Girl Inspired

By November 26, 2014 My Style

When I think tweed, I think Chanel. But when I think pink tweed, I think Chanel A/W 14. There was something so magical about the A/W collection… it was full of texture but in a new, fun and modern way which I don’t think has ever been pulled off quite as well. Not only did I like the clothes, I also loved the whole aesthetic, and this is what today’s post is about. Double tweed, fun poses… and a floppy mop on the top of my head. It was fun to do and edit, so you better like it too… Let me know what you think of this post and if I should re-create any other designer looks!

WHAT I WORE: Tweed Jacket (Jumble Sale) // Tweed Dress (Zara Kids – Very old!) // Zebra Top (Jumble Sale) // Spotty Skirt (Peacocks)* // Looney Tunes Socks (Primark) // Jelly Shoes (Supermarket)

Surprisingly enough, a lot of this outfit was incredibly cheap. In fact, I reckon you could fool some non-fashion lover that the dress and jacket are really Chanel… possibly. I picked up the jacket from a jumble sale, and haven’t worn it enough due to the fact it has that slight oversized feel to it. Looking at it now though, I should definitely wear it more often! It has that really nice, chic shape to it.The dress has been in my wardrobe for possibly half my life (yikes)! Mama Posh treated me to a Zara outfit once and only finally have I started to appreciate this dress’ (top now really…) beauty. I added the skirt for an added bit of length, and voila! Is it a convincing faux-Chanel? I would say so…?

Without sounding vain and blowing my own trumpet, I actually really like the way this outfit comes together. It’s just the little touches that look so cute together. I mean, who can say no to £1.50 Looney Tune socks?! The texture brings out the more mature side of my style, but the colour and mixed prints adds that fun pop. Sometimes using a collection or lookbook for inspiration can really help. I’ve been on a bit of an outfit choosing low, but this has definitely invigorated that eye for something special in me. Also… I can’t resist and excuse to wear a floppy bun on the top of my head… ‘It’s like the Chanel A/W 14 hair…’ is what I’ll say…!

 One last thing… there is actually a give-away up on my Facebook page! You can check it out here and a win cute A/W cape! Pretty awesome 🙂 Good Luck! Also, also, if you ever see on Twitter the link, ‘tdpf.co’, this is officially my new short link! It won’t take you anywhere unless it’s linked to a post… it’s basically my own version of ‘bit.ly’… just FYI!

Wishlist: Getting Ready For Summer

By April 1, 2014 Wishlist

Hello lovely people! Today I have a Wishlist! If you haven’t seen on Twitter, I have been banging on about doing this post for sooo long, and I’m so excited it is finally here! My blog schedule has finally calmed down and I can just chill, so here you go… …Happy April Fools! No tricks here, so don’t worry! 😉

wishlist: Chelsea Doll, Peacocks, New Look & ASOS
Click on the product you like to buy!

White Caged Chunky Block Heel Sandals –
My love for this style sandal is unreal. I found them first on a blog and since them I have been looking for a cheaper equivalent, and what do we have here?! I’m so excited because I will be getting these and that makes me happy! They are just so versatile, and perfect for summer. I’m not a big fan of flat, thin strappy sandals, so these are just perfect!

Pale Blue Spot Crepe Boxy Shirt –
I love pastels, and I love shirts… so what more could I want?! Again, this will be on the way to me soon, but I would probably have preferred the monochrome one, but my size was out of stock so… *insert unhappy face emoiji* I think it will look really nice with a strappy dress I have (was in my old blog header) in spring time, and even nicer on it’s own in the summer!

Fabulous Flatform Sandals –
Another pair of sandals… and no I am not just calling them fabulous for no reason… that is in fact their name! I saw these on Twitter and I absolutely love them! They’re holographic and all colourful, and the straps are that lovely thickness which makes them look all swish. Definitely wish I hadn’t found these now…

Friendship Bracelet Watch –
Ahhh! This is already in my ASOS basket since it has dropped in price! It’s so gorgeous and very ‘festival’ fashion-y, and I just love it to bits! I’m one of those annoying people who love to stack hundreds of bracelets with frayed ends on top of each other, and this would be amazing amongst my collection! Practical and ridiculously cute! If I was made of money, I would get the pastel version too…

Embellished Transparent Waist Belt –
I love clothing or accessories which you can see through… well obviously not t-shirts or pants because that could get a little awkward, but I think I can make an exception for a belt! This is so pretty, but I’m not sure I could spend as much as it is on a thing which will go around my waist. It is adorable though!

Mini Patent PU Skirt –
Ahhh (again)! My love for pastel patent skirts is insane! I honestly could die for one right now. It’s soooo cute! I actually prefer the one from Missguided (here) which is also much cheaper, but they don’t do good images for blog posts… #bloggerproblems

Aztec Bikini –
This bikini is SO SO SO nice! I am obsessed with it! I have a pink frilly one from M&S but the frills get in the way when wearing it underneath other things, so this would be just perfect! It’s such a nice print, and the top is just adorable and totally the right sort of style for erm… my flat chest aha… it’s also such a bargain too! Definitely such a cute piece from a brand such as Peacocks!

Culotte Shorts –
Ever since Zoella’s trip on holiday last year, and her cute outfits featuring her floaty monochrome shorts, I have been wanting a pair! These are plain, but simple, and perfect for spring and summer as they are pastel! I could totally see me wearing the aztec bikini with a floaty kimono over the top. Perfect summer outfit!

Fat Joe’s Sweatshirt –
The most expensive piece of this wishlist comes from Lazy Oaf. I love the whole ‘foodie fashion’ trend, and this is a perfect way to mix pastel in with it. The perfect trendy combination!

#JunkFood French Fries Necklace & Rings –
Chelsea Doll, oh dear Chelsea Doll. You do have the best statement jewellery for people on a budget. These two pieces are insane. After the whole McDonalds or ‘McSchino’ craze, I am in love with these. I want to wear them all day long and just pretend that they are the real Moschino deal. I would like them please, please, PLEASE. *flutters eye lashes*

Thank you so much for reading, and if you like… leave a comment below!

My Style: ‘Trolly’ Dolly Posh*

By March 15, 2014 My Style

Howdy awesome peeps! Hope you are good! If not, I hope this post and it’s very ‘punny’ name makes you feel better 😉 It’s definitely getting warmer where I am, the pool cover is off (showing a very green pond) and the sky has been blue for about 4 days in a row… keep it together weather, please!

my style peacocks chelsea doll troll family necklace master shoe floral dr martens my style peacocks chelsea doll troll family necklace master shoe floral dr martens my style peacocks chelsea doll troll family necklace master shoe floral dr martensWhat I Wore: New York Top £5.00 (Peacocks)*, Blue Petticoat Tutu Skirt £20.00 (M&S), Troll Family Necklace £13.00 (Chelsea Doll)*, Neon Ombre Sunglasses (Claire’s) & 1460 Pascal White Wild Poppy Dr Martens £79.99* (MasterShoe MyShu)

Ermagherd. I love this outfit SO SO SO much! It’s such a random outfit, but somehow I just love it! I don’t care about the stares I get from annoying french people (seriously though, who teaches them that staring is not rude?!), I love this outfit and that is all that matters. I mean… a New York slogan top = Carrie Diaries, a troll necklace = retro and my new nickname, uhum, Trolly Dolly Posh, puffy skirt = pastel perfectness AND floral Dr Marten’s (which can I just say, are so comfortable) = what more could you want?! I am actually obsessed. I just want to wear it everyday! Come on sun, just be that tad warmer so I don’t have to wear annoying skin coloured tights…

It was crazy! There was this one ride which had little ponies for children to ride on 🙁 I don’t understand the french, they just don’t have the same thoughts about animals as us English folk! On a positive note… look how cool my little ‘troll family’ look against the bright lights… awesome! I wore the same outfit but as it was too dark, I couldn’t do the snazzy pictures with bright bokeh in the background, urgh. Not cool… 😉

my style peacocks chelsea doll troll family necklace master shoe floral dr martens my style peacocks chelsea doll troll family necklace master shoe floral dr martensI will be doing a full review on these beauties, but I couldn’t resist wearing them in this outfit! Before I do that post though… these honestly are SO FREAKING COOL! As you will know, I adore Dr Martens. They are not only fabulous practicality wise, they also look beautiful, and these are the cherry on the top! I feel a bit proud of myself really, because when I got my first pair from a jumble sale last year, I never imagined that the next year I would be getting a pair as a gift for my blog!?! Eeee, just looking at them makes me feel giddy! You could win yourself some if you head over to Bundle too! Hurry up summer time so I can wear cool vintage shorts and a floppy hat and nice bikini and be all like ‘Look at me like I’m from Tumblr, wearing boots and shorts…’ 😉 😉 Wearing my puffy tutu again has made me realise why I bought it in the first place. Definitely going to put it out so I remember to wear it more! It’s gorgeous!

my style peacocks chelsea doll troll family necklace master shoe floral dr martensI thought I would leave you with this ‘alright’ picture and this really weird and funny looking picture of me! I do pull some funny faces… if you were to zoom in on that picture on the right, you’d see that my chin is actually really weird, and that it can bend inwards and go into the pointiest shape ever. Oh well that is life… nobody is perfect and all that jazz! Well… outfits can be perfect, and this is one of them! …in my opinion! Actually who cares?! This outfit IS perfect, no matter what you say. Yeah. Hmmmm. Yes, I did just get sassy with you. Ooh yeah. YEAH. Okay, now I’m just talking to myself because hopefully you are in the comments section… or now you are… hmm… you better be. *sighs at self and decides to look up people who are not weird and mimic them… then realises that that is impossible if you are already weird* THE END.

My Style: Neon, Neon And More Neon

By February 20, 2014 General

Hello! Well I hope you are enjoying your week! Today I have another My Style blog post! Papa Posh is still getting the hang of my new lens but it seems to be going well so far! There’s also a sneaky book review in this one, so if you like to read then this is the place to be! Enjoy me’ harties…

my style peacocks rings and tings asos nike jd sports ootd fashion blog my style peacocks rings and tings asos nike jd sports ootd fashion blog my style peacocks rings and tings asos nike jd sports ootd fashion blogWhat I Wore: White & Orange Blouse with Drop Waist £11.00 (ASOS), Navy LOVE Jumper £12.00 (Peacocks)*, ‘Mom’ Jeans (Jumble Sale), Nike TR Fit 3.0 (JD Sports)* & Zebra Double Finger Ring £5.00 (Rings & Tings)*

This outfit is quickly becoming one of my favourites at the moment. It’s so comfortable, yet it has that little bit of something that makes it ‘chic’. I picked up the drop waist blouse in the ASOS sale (seriously, I picked up a great bargain), and as soon as I slipped it on, it was true love. It’s that sort of piece that can really do anything, whether it’s in the summer, or in the cold month of February. I think it looks absolutely gorgeous and cute with my lovely (I mean lovely) Peacocks jumper over the top. It’s that perfect mix of geek and chic. Seeing as it is still pretty nippy (well, not quite the 8 degrees of the UK… oh sorry did I boast a bit then? 😉 ), I have to pair it with my ‘mom’ jeans, which isn’t a problem really because I simply love them. Don’t forget my Nike trainers of course, one of my favourite pairs of shoes, EVER.

my style peacocks rings and tings asos nike jd sports ootd fashion blog my style peacocks rings and tings asos nike jd sports ootd fashion blogmy style peacocks rings and tings asos nike jd sports ootd fashion blogOMG. I broke the blogger rule of not putting your hands on your hips. I’m just terrible aren’t I? TERRIBLE (Sorry, I love a bit of sarcasm…). On fashion sides of things though, LOOK AT MY RING. ISN’T IT AWESOME?! IT’S A ZEBRA. I have no idea why but I like to think it’s an Australian Zebra. It just sounds good in an Australian accent. Hmm. I will be showing a few other pieces I got from Rings & Tings shortly, so watch out for that! Also on the jewellery front, I have exciting news… my parents have said that next time I go to the UK I can have my ears pierced. FINALLY. They always said that I have to wait until I’m about 14, but to be fair, being home schooled and all, does it really matter when?! YOLO as they say. YO to the LO. Having said that I now have to prepare myself. I’m going to be putting holes into my lobes. HAHAHA, sorry but that just sounds so weird.

my style peacocks rings and tings asos nike jd sports ootd fashion blogWhat I Read: The Taming Of The Tights (Louise Rennison)*

I quite recently finished this book by the amazing Louise Rennison (the writer of Angus, Thongs & Perfect Snogging), and I thought I would tell you about it! It’s the last in the ‘Misadventures of Tallulah Casey’ series, and although I hadn’t read the previous, it is quite funny either way. It’s very relatable to all young teen girls out there, with Tallulah running into all sorts of boy and school troubles. She’s torn between this wild guy, Cain, and the nice chap, Charlie, and she takes us on her adventure. 1 of my favourite things about the book is Matilda (one of the character’s dog), because every time she does something, it made me giggle. I must say that the book gets better towards the end of the book which is annoying, but if you are looking for a chilled out, relaxing book (something you’d take on holiday), then I would definitely recommend this one!

A/W Look Book with Peacocks*

By November 12, 2013 My Style

WOW, long time no… read? Ha. I’m sorry I’ve been away for a few more days than usual, but firstly, my brain decided to empty itself (not literally) and I simply couldn’t think of any blog posts, and then yesterday, it decided to explode into the worst headache 🙁 So today, I went out in the cold (my toes were numb) to shoot my Look Book! I’m sorry it’s not tip top’, but I’ve never done one before and it’s harder than you think! Okay, this very long intro should probably stop, so um… enjoy!

peacocks girls clothing teen fashion a/w look book What I Wore: Multicolour Chunky Knit Beanie (Primark), Love Me Batwing T-Shirt £7.00 (Peacocks)*, Petticoat Tutu £20.00 (M&S) & Chelsea Boots (Jumble Sale)

My favourite outfit at the moment! I splurged on this petticoat tutu skirt in England, and when this cute slogan top arrived, I knew I had to pair the two together. The top is slightly bat winged, but is really really comfortable. In my opinion pastels in the winter are just perfect, especially when it’s tulle – you know my love for tulle! I also adore this beanie which was a right bargain!

peacocks girls clothing teen fashion a/w look book What I Wore: Fluffy Jumper £10.00 (Primark), Blue & Black Long Sleeve Maxi Dress £10.00 (Peacocks)*, Floral Headband £10.00 (ASOS) & Dr Martens €30.00 (Jumble Sale)

Again, this look is one of my favourites for A/W. It’s a little bit grunge-y, but a little bit cute, and definitely warm. I’m really happy with the maxi dress because it has long sleeves, and it’s just the right length! Not many teen collections cater for maxi dresses! The fluffy jumper adds a little sumin’ sumin’ with the texture.

peacocks girls clothing teen fashion a/w look book What I Wore: White Blouse (Next), Tartan Check Scarf 0.65c (2nd Hand Shop), Red and Monochrome Tartan Check Skater Skirt £7.00 (Peacocks)& Chelsea Boots (Jumble Sale)

I think this outfit is really cute and British, and nice for those days where it isn’t too cold, but not too warm. I think you could dress it up with a leather jacket and chunky boots. This skirt is perfect for all seasons too! Who said you can’t wear tartan in summer?! Plus, how amazing is my 65 cent scarf? Bargain!

peacocks girls clothing teen fashion a/w look book What I Wore: White Shirt (M&S), Sparkly Blue Bow £8.00 (Prairie Charms)*, Fluffy Jumper £10.00 (Primark), Black & Grey Leopard Print Skater Skirt £7.00 (Peacocks)*, Dr Martens €30.00 (Jumble Sale)

Come on, look at that bow?! Cuteeee! ^.^ Haha! I added the sparkly bow just to jazz it up a bit more – top tip: use hair bows as faux bow ties! – but yeah it’s just a really simple, comfy outfit. I actually really like the skirt. It’s simple, but because the print is in a plain colour combination, it can be worn in different ways. Gahh, the fluffy jumper is so snug!

I hope you enjoyed my first ever Look Book! I hope I did it okay?… I also have 3 other pieces from the Teen Collection at Peacocks which I hope to shoot (again – the pictures weren’t the best!) soon. Shout out to Peacocks though! I am so grateful for all of the support they have given to my blog! I never knew I would be collaborating with a high street brand which is in most UK towns! 😀 Please leave me a comment if you wish!

My Style: Oriental Jungle In The City*

By September 6, 2013 DIY & Lifestyle, Fashion, My Style

Excuse the really odd title of this My Style post. I thought it was quite fitting, though…?! I also excuse the fact that my editing is changing. I’m trying to find the perfect way that suits the feel of my outfits I wear, I know it can be annoying, but I just can’t find the right type of colours etc

peacocks my style peacocks my style peacocks my style What I Wore: Floral Crown (DIY), Oriental Silk Kimono Top €1.00 (Jumble Sale), Sleeveless Parrot Blouse £8.00* (Peacocks), Petite Lasercut Hi Low Skirt £13.00 (ASOS), Jelly Shoes (Supermarket).

I LOVE THIS OUTFIT. When this gorgeous blouse slipped through my letter box, I was like.. ‘Hmm, what should I wear it with’, so I went on the hunt for something to wear with it. BINGO. A 1 EURO Silk Kimono Top in the perfect turquoise blue. The colour picks out the parrots in my blouse, and ooooh they look so nice together. Add my flowy lasercut skirt from ASOS (Still available here, grab it whilst you can!), and it’s just perfect. Although this blouse is Peacocks, I really do like it. It’s great quality for the price. The one thing that is a shame, is the fact that there are only a few gems in the range for girls, which are in the midst of 1D T-Shirts, so come on Peacocks, give us some more! I definitely think I would wear this to LFW though, for one of the more informal shows… *sob sob* Ahhh, one can dream!

As I always do, here is the lifestyle part of my OOTDs… last week we went on a day trip, involving an hour and a half car journey. We went to a pretty village which was basically on the edge of a hill (One of the building was IN the hill). We had a walk round, a drink and a kebab – the yummy ones, pita bread, chips, BBQ sauce, onion… you know the drill. We then went back home stopping off to of course take my OOTD pictures 😉 #bloggerproblems. It was a really lovely day, but also absolutely boiling! I am going to miss the summer, but oh boy, I can’t wait for cosy nights in the winter!
