Hello Everyone!
Today I thought I would do a post on one of my favourite topics: FOOD.
I am awful with food, I eat and eat and eat and then complain about my body. Yes, I am one of those! Unfortunately for my body, my kryptonite is curry. Not just any old curry, but Chicken Korma. I am obsessed with it and although I am good, because its not like I have it every week; when I do have it, I am like a little child at Christmas, filled with excitement. I am admittedly really rubbish with spices, always have been and always will be, so until recent years I was always very apprehensive about trying Indian food...and then, someone introduced me to Korma. It is a perfect meal for me because it has literally no spice in it what so ever so it means I don't suffer with horrendously burnt and swollen lips for hours afterwards. It is also good because I think it isn't too much of an overpowering flavour (some people may call it bland or too beige though) so it goes nicely with the other sides that you often order with a curry. I know, I know, Chicken Korma should not be eaten when you are trying to watch your if anyone has any healthy curry options then please do let me know!

Greater Grassmarket W. Armstrong & Son Vintage Emporium

Went to the Greater Grassmarket in Edinburgh today and came across this incredible vintage shop called W. Armstrong & Son Vintage Emporium. It is so strange because on the outside it looks like it will just be this little adorable shop filled with bits and bobs, but you walk in and its a huge burst of colour and energy that just keeps going! If anyone is in this area or near by then I would definitely recommend popping in and having a look at all the gorgeous things they have in there; it certainly took me by surprise! So as you can see below, i've vlogged about my experience in the Vintage Emporium on my Channel. Take a look!

X Factor Auditions

Hey Everyone!
Thought i'd show you my latest Vlog post on my YouTube Channel about my day in London for the X Factor Auditions at Wembley Arena. I got my tickets for free through the website Applause Store and I will hopefully be going to lots more sessions for other TV shows in the future! I had such fun filming and editing it as it was my first proper editing experience; although I still have a very long way to go in terms of getting it right. I am in Edinburgh for the week now so will be flogging and blogger lots from here as I will be at The Fringe. Are any of you here? Let me know!

Calvin Klein Eternity Moment

Hello All!
Whilst at the Amazon Christmas Wishlist Press Event last week, I picked up one of the top female presents for women this Christmas and it happened to be Calvin Klein's Eternity Moment. I don't really wear perfume very often, but I have to say that I was converted! I love the summery and beautiful flowery smell of this perfume and it made me feel happy smelling it. I know, I know, that does sound like a rather random thing to say, but I never realised what joy could come from lovely smells! I guess if I was to get all poetic about it, it was like walking into a gorgeous field of fantastically coloured flowers and table of gorgeous fruit near by. I want to start wearing a perfume, and what better way to start? Isn't it so true that when you hug someone you love, you can't help but recognise the smell they have straight away? Well today's post was inspired by my lovely Uncle David who always smells delightful and puts a smile on my face like you wouldn't believe! Do any of you have your favourite perfume? Let me know what it is please! Buy Calvin Klien products HERE from Amazon.

Clarks Shoes

In LOVE with these adorable little Clarks shoes. I was walking round Saffron Walden recently and spotted these little beauties in the corner and they instantly stood out to me. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough money to buy them at the time...anything over £20 is out of the question for me right now, so I had to put them to the back of my mind and pretend that I had never seen them. However, it seems unfair to not share them with the rest of the world. I know lots of people are wearing these at the moment; i'm sure I'm a little bit behind the times! Since coming back from travelling, I find it hard to wear anything but flip flops as I feel so restricted in other shoes. These are so light and made me feel like a little girl dressed up as a princess in mums shoes! Do you have a pair similar? Any equivalent brand I could go for?

ASOS Park Lane Gold Leather Sling Flat Sandal

 I was recently shopping the amazing ASOS Sale and spotted these little gold sandals for only £15. When I think about the weather recently, I realise that they wouldn't come in much use; but I can't help but wish for better weather where I would be able to wear them! If I had the money to buy them then I would match them with my new ZARA White Jeans and a cute block coloured top. What do you think of these beauties? Could you imagine yourself in them? What would you match them with?

New Look Ideal Summer Outfit

I spotted this adorable outfit on the New Look website and instantly fell in love with it. After being away in Australia, I fell in love with brightly coloured statement tops which you can chuck on and still look nice. I have also put on a little bit of weight around my hips so this lose fitting top would flatter that very nicely. Whilst I was away travelling, I had to quickly grab some items from home to change my outfit up from day to night after work so I could go out and have a lovely time with friends so below I have selected two looks.

For the day, I am in love with this Birkenstock style of slider sandals, I saw some on a market stall the other day and regret not buying them so much! These are perfect with lightly painted toe nails and turned up jeans. I've also added this structured white backpack to carry all my bits and bobs around in. Whilst I was away I loved carrying a little backpack everywhere, as I was often out from dusk till dawn, but this one is definitely more appealing!

For the night, I love these black heels and a rectangle box bag in white, black and silver. I think the block colour of the top is enough colour for this outfit so adding some monochrome accessories definitely creates a sophisticated look. Also, although this heels look rather clumpy, they will help to elongate your legs and I don't know about you, but I certainly feel more attractive when wearing heels. I find myself walking taller and having a much better posture when I walk into a room, an air of confidence about me. This cute little clutch bag is adorable, just big enough to fit your essentials in it and very understated, meaning it won't take the attention away from your clothes.

What do you think of these looks, do you prefer night or day?
