5 Things I currently want.

Unfortunately, I have a really bad habit of often buying things only because they are on sale and although this has resulted in me getting some really good bargains at times, it also means I end up buying stuff that I really do not need/stuff I don’t even really want but I may just happen to wear in the future. I have compiled a list of things that I really want and need that are not particularly expensive but they will definitely be a worthwhile purchase especially for me.

1.Zara quilted backpack
The quilting on this backpack is reminiscent of the classic Chanel flap bag (which I long to buy). The fact that it is quilted and leather but also a large backpack allows this bag to be used in any look. The leather adds some edge, whilst the quilting adds class – in addition to this, the fact that it is a backpack adds a sporty vibe allowing you to comfortable whilst looking ever so stylish. This bag costs £39.99 – a bargain for something that will probably never go out of style and can be used in so many different circumstances – a trip to the airport, a school bag,out to a restaurant friends or maybe just even shopping.

5 of the best looks at the Oscars/Academy Awards

I haven’t watched the awards myself yet , but I will certainly be watching the highlights on SKY Living tonight at 9 -however I did keep up with the red carpet thanks to Vogue, Elle and E! Entertainment on Twitter. I was in awe of some of the looks on the red carpet -it’s nice to see people experimenting with their style and not always wearing black as most Twitter accounts seem to think. These are my five favourite looks along with an honourable mention from the 2015 Oscars/AcademyAwards!

5 wardrobe essentials

As an avid online shopper (being on a gap year when all of your friends uni’s are out of London along with having a part-time job gives you a lot of money ,resulting in my wardrobe has literally tripling since September.) there are packages at least once a week from TopShop or ASOS. My obsession with online shopping has meant that I have worked out what is worth my money and what isn’t, so that is what I’m going to list!

Skinny Jeans

Who can live without a good pair of skinny Jeans, I have too many in different shades but to be completely honest not all of them work very well. For example as thin ankles run through my family – New Look jeans do not work on my body at all. However, Topshop jeans especially the Joni jeans look amazing along with ASOS Whitby ones. Jeans are a staple in my wardrobe, whilst most girls gravitate towards legging -you’ll barely catch me in them. Jeans for the win!

White Shirt

A good white shirt can do wonders, believe me! I just got a new one from Mango (which is now sold out) in addition to my previous one from Primark, both are different materials the Primark one being cotton and the Mango one being chiffon – however, both are of equal importance and can take an outfit from look super laid back to very put together. One thing I have definitely been trying to change with the way I dress is how laid back I am. I can literally be out of the door in 5 minutes and then 3 hours into my outing I really hate what I’m wearing cause I look either washed out or drowned out ( as most of the clothes I have oversized). However , you can throw on a white shirt, skinnies and converse and you’re good to go!

Leather Jacket

Especially for the months between March and June , a leather Jacket is an absolute essential.As of right now I only own a black one but I am trying to find some in other colours. A leather jacket can make an really girly outfit have a bit of edge along with a pair of black booties. They can also practically go with anything and you can get them in different styles ranging from oversized to cropped which is also a bonus.

T-shirts

Having a few good t-shirts to hand is also of great importance. If you’re quickly running down to the supermarket or to get some food – you cannot go wrong with throwing on a plain t-shirt and practically any bottoms. I have navy,black,white,grey and a striped one all from different brands including ASOS,Gap and Primark and none cost me more than around £7.50 (ASOS being the most expensive and Gap bring the cheapest(on sale)) These aren’t even investment pieces , you can literally pick about 5 up from Primark for under £10 use them till their ripped and buy another 5 -it’s a win win situation!

Plaid Shirt

The return of the plaid shirt for me has just been the best thing ever – as mentioned before many of the clothes I own are oversized which can be unflattering but for the plaid shirt – it just works so much. You can style them so easily! You can tie it around your waist, throw it on top of a dress , on top of a t-shirt and jeans , on top of t-shirt dress- the possibilities are endless and there are so many different styles and colours , barely anyone has the same one! You can get them for super cheap at Primark or maybe even for free from dad’s /uncles/brothers etc wardrobes.

5 TV Programmes to watch!

The Blacklist

Starring James Spader, this programme reminds me of a cross between criminal minds and the silence of the lambs. James Spader plays the character, Raymond Reddington with literally the most mesmerising voice ever! From the pilot it is clear to see the similarities between him and Hannibal Lecter. Both are some what of an anti-hero whilst helping out a young and starting out agent.If you havent already started watching,I’d advise you to do so right away. It also starts Megan Boone,Ryan Eggold and other recognisable TV actors but I do feel that Spader carries the whole show.

Scandal

You must have been living under a rock if you have not heard of this show. Despite being a fictional character, Olivia Pope has definitely left her stamp on both the fashion and career industry. Although her life can be erratic the glamour of her clothes and being her own boss essentially are definitely seen throughout the show.

With a whopping 11k pictures and 3.2 million followers, your instagram feed will never be boring whilst your following her as she takes you a different country nearly everyday of the week. Also her has tags are supercute! – #TheBlondeSaladNeverStops!

2.Kayture-Kristina Bazan (@Kristina_Bazan)

I actually found Kristina’s blog through her instagram and had been following her for a while before I realised that she actually had a blog and she didn’t have 1.3 millions simply because she’s so pretty. Like Chiara, Kristina is one of the blogging powerhouses , from travelling to London for the Victoria’s Secret fashion show to going to paris for Paris fashion week, Kristina is really and truly living the life I can only dream of. Definitely check her out!
