New Zealand

Kia ora :)

This is my first post from the other side of the world! I have officially been gone 11 weeks (seems a lot longer) and have been crazy busy! It's only now after 2 months that I am going to start taking it slowly and start building the money back up!! Currently working two jobs so pretty busy still!!!!

Over the next few days I will try and put together some posts of what I have been doing so far, and try and incorperate some fashion somewhere in there too!

I'm definately missing my wardrobe back home as I've mostly been living in hoodys!!!

Hope everyone in the bloggersphere is well and I have a lot of blog reading to catch up on!!

If anyone ever gets the chance to visit and travel New Zealand I would highly reccomend it, such a beautiful country, so much to do and I can't wait to spend the next 10 months here!!!

Share Sunday... Honour over glory

Patch Beanie (Grape)

Cracked T-Shirt (Sport Grey)
The Hunted T-Shirt (Black)

College Sweatshirt (Black)

This Sunday i've decided to share Honour over Glory... I'm all for supporting the UK designers, that bring an edge to everyday fashion... 
These are my favourite picks above! They do have a sale on at the moment to be sure to check them out! 
There's some vests etc for summer as well! I'll be moving to New Zealand in July and it will be winter, so i've kind of got to bear the winter things in mind still hence the beanie!

I love the colour of the purple beanie as I usually wear a lot of black so this would break it all up :)
They do the beanies in 8 colours! So something for everyone !

Make sure you check them out

Hi guys!
My Sunday share post this week is about a brand called Fortyounce, 

I kind of in a very selfish way don't want to share them at all, as I would like everything for myself!
I pretty much love every single item of clothing on here!
T-shirts especially.

All the T-shirts I think look really fresh!
I think they would all look great tucked into shorts / Dungarees in the summer!
Would make great festival wear.
Again for myself would look great for when I go travelling!

Hope you all enjoy them as much as I do!

Plus it's good to support the UK designers!

Sun sun sun!


Can you believe it the sun is finally out !
I have been waiting for this moment for the last 5ish months, and it feels so good wearing a leather jacket instead of a full on coat!
I love my new docs more than anything :)

Jacket : H&M
Maxi dress: H&M
Docs: Ebay
Bracelet: Portuguese market
Rings : Primark
Sunglasses : Ebay
Lipstick : Topshop

I think I Might prefer my hair being this length as well! 
Everything feels so much better in the Sun !
The maxi dress I can't wear full length as I'm quite short and I feel it makes me look shorter so i've tied it up!

Hope everyone is enjoying the sun today


Morning world!
Here is my Veuxdoo wish list!
Have included the prices as well in the post as to be honest I think there pretty amazing!
These are my absolute fav's off the website
Link to the website is :
All these things would look great for when I go travelling!
If you like stuff grab it quick also! There's a lot of things I like on the website that are sold out as well so hoping they do re-stocks.
Also if you spend over £30 you get free delivery as well which is pretty good! 
Otherwise the standard postage charge for the UK is £3.50.
May have to do a cheeky purchase when pay day rolls around!

Doc appreciation post!

First of all ignore the work clothes, ignore the messy hair, was a little bit too excited to share my new shoes !

Okay so found these babys on Ebay for £22! Literally over the moon! Wanted a pair for years and every time I bid on them they always go up to like £50 £60 ! So I'm literally so happy right now! Only just got them today, but obviously had to blog about them straight away haha ! :)

Don't ever want to take them off! Becuase they've already been worn in they are so comfy too! Expect lots of outfit posts featuring them !

Also just to add, I have died my hair back to dark red atm, I know ombre's ''so last year'' so to speak haha I do kind of miss it though! I'll no doubt get bored and change it again very soon anyway! We shall see!

Docs - Ebay
Top - Urban outfitters
Skirt - H&M

Pics from rough trade me and my sister!

Spent a few days in London with my sister and one of the best friends Loren to do a few touristy things and have a meal out at Planet Hollywood for my sisters birthday... We spent a day at Camden market and Camden in general, went to the Planetarium in Greenwich (Which isn't really worth looking around) , and spent a day at Brick Lane / Oxford street / Carnaby street...Was so much fun and went way too quickly as standard! Resisted temptation with buying so many things and just bought a few things for going travelling in July!

Asos shoes

Literally want to buy all the shoes on Asos at the moment !
I'm sure I'm not alone in that factor...

Whittled it down to my favourites!
I would totally wear all of these!
If money was no object of course... I wish...
After buying shoes from Asos in the Christmas sale that have been mega comfy from the start, and no complaints, I will definitely be buying from there from now on and recommending to all you lovely readers also!
Hope you enjoy them as much as me!

Payday! whoo! Everyone's most favourite and long awaited day of the month!
Had the day off work today so went for a wander into the city in the rain and picked up a small selection of bits and pieces :)
Quite looking forward to trying this hair dye! Getting rid of the ginger ombre and going all over red again! It's supposed to be a re-usable hair dye, it does say on the box that you can get two full head applications out of it! So quite looking forward to feeding back if this is actually the case!

Being Skint, I'm having to make the most of cheaper full coverage foundations! This one is perfect for me! I have been buying it in 'ivory' as I'm so pale these days! It's my favourite cheap foundation usually retails around the £10 mark and last with powder all day long!!! Would highly recommend for any body else on a budget!

Lastly I bought this necklace from Primark £4! Excuse the leg but it was the only way to get all the spikes to sit right! I quite like this, cheap and cheerfull and I'm sure ill get plenty of use out of it as it's quite a statement piece and will no doubt look good and give some edge to a plain back tee .

Motel Rocks Dress

Last months favourite buy is this dress from Motel rocks... probably should have got something more 'spring like', but lets face is as much as I say 'I really need to start adding more colour to my life' , I'm always probably going to end up reverting back to the black... So here it is...

If you like this dress you can get it 20% off at the checkout by using the code : alexandraelizabeth

Hope you guys like it

Off to London again next week so hopefully I can find some bargains for my travels :)

Floral and Denim

 Introducing the £5 Primark dress that I bought last year! 
I usually just wear this on holiday! But had a photo shoot with a close friend today as she has just opened her own photography shop! Klash photography Decided to wear some colour in my life for a change!
I love this dress for Primark and love the detailing on the neck!
Chucked a denim shirt over the top and as per usual rolled up the sleeves :)
Being so skint at the moment Primark is literally my saviour! So happy that there's actually some alright stuff in there at the moment !

Casual Lace

Lace! I haven't worn lace in a good few months/years. I don't know about you guys? I got this dress probably about 3 years ago off Asos, decided to team it today with my Ebay turtle neck top that you've all seen before, and my trusty ebay sunglasses that I'm probably weirdly in love with! Who needs men when you've got clothes, seriously haha!
Teamed the outfit with my trusty Vans that I've had two years and wear quite often and just tights and then also my urban outfitters belt with tiny little silver skulls on.
Bit late on the up keep as I've been busy lately but I'm assuming most of you bloggers were lucky enough to head down to London fashion week, of which I am hugely jealous of and won't get the chance to go next year either due to travelling! Major Sulk.  Hope you all had a good time and i've been enjoying trawling through outfit posts!
Been Spending my time recently catching up with friends and browsing online shops, which is never a good idea for me!

Sorry about the quick post, didn't have much time,  now off out for the evening! ...Ciao x

Monday, 25 February 2013


The weekends been pretty eventful, although no fashion gossip i'm afraid!  Currently shopping online for a new jumper and a burgundy beanie though... any good jumper suggestions throw them my way!!! 

But yeah this weekend I sold my car, which im pretty sad about to be honest as I now have to bus an hour and a half to work each day... sucks! New Zealand soooo better be worth the wait and saving! seriouslyy!!
And then Saturday night spent it out with some of the fav's! ... Myself, the best friend Jade, and then Ashley and James hit the town for some much needed dancing and excessive drinking! Was a very good night and probably spent too much money but was all for fun!
The Black top that I'm wearing was actually a turtle neck off ebay and then the sheer sleeves I actually cut up some tights! Can't beat a bit of DIY!
Sorry about the lame post! but will hopefully be back on track with some outfit posts etc asap!!

Travel clothing haul! Primark, Monki, Topshop & Forever 21

Okay So yesterday I went to London travel shopping! I'm quite aware this is just over 4 months early but this was the last paycheck I could spend on myself before it all gets thrown into the travelling fund! I love shopping in London but time just goes so quick, which always tends to suck!
Here's what I managed to buy :

Primark shorts £12.00, speckled tee £4.00 and rings £2.50

Topshop : Hats £10 each... the black one I will get loads of use out of when I go away no doubt... but the neon one was for a bit more fun, and I saw Beauty crush wear one in one of her San Fransico Vlogs on youtube and she looked great in it!

Primark : Hoodie : £8, Flip flops £1!!!!!!!!!!!

Primark : T-shirt/vests £5 each

Monki: Pinky/purpley t-shirt £5 in the sale

Forever 21 stripey dress : £10.50, Primark Burgundy dress : £13

I also bought a floral handheld mirror from Forever 21 and just another plain black tee from Primark. Not planning on wearing anything from here until I get to New Zealand so there going straight in the suitcase for now :)

For those that don't have me on twitter also I have recently started doing the 30 day shred to hopefully get myself  back into shape within the next month... is anyone else doing this also and does it actually work?
