Pretty Little Thing Clothing – A Rant

First of all, I’m sorry I’ve been away from my blog for a week today. You know what though? It is probably one of the first times I haven’t written sweet fuck all for my blog and not given a shit. That sounds really negative but I’m actually glad I didn’t. Instead of writing or even thinking about what to write I was chilling out with Dane playing games with some work friends and binge watching TV shows and films on Netflix.

Today’s post is one I knew I would write about as soon as I experienced the poor customer service with Pretty Little Thing. I feel bad outing them, but at the same time I don’t because the experience I had with them is something that NEEDS to be shared. I don’t want anyone else to go through the shit I have.

I want to first of all say that the issue I had/have STILL hasn’t been resolved and it has been over a week now.

I also want to say that although I have had an appalling experience with Pretty Little Thing the first time (and only time!) I shopped with them, it doesn’t mean everyone will. I’ll elaborate on this however…

I can’t remember which blogger or YouTuber I heard about Pretty Little Thing from but I had never heard anything bad about the brand before. I had a nose on their website for some stuff I could order for the holiday and I can’t remember how I did but I stumbled across some rainbow high-waisted shorts. I immediately fell in love with them but was so undecided about whether to order them or not. In the end I did as I knew they’d be great for the holiday in both the daytime and the evening, as well as for evenings out with Dane in the UK.

I decided to order a size up due to them being high-waisted and not really knowing what the sizes were like with Pretty Little Thing. On their website they were advertising about £1.00 next day delivery, which usually costs about £5.00. “Great I can get them tomorrow!” I thought to myself. There was a timer for it and I had about 5 minutes to order these shorts with the cheap next day delivery. So I add the shorts to my cart, put in all my information, the code for the offer and whatever else you do when ordering stuff online.

I payed through PayPal, fine the next day delivery offer was on there and everything, but oh wait, what’s this? It charged me for the bloody full price delivery! I found out through a sodding email from both PayPal and Pretty Little Thing.

Annoyed about how I’ve just been cheated my offer I took to Twitter to contact Pretty Little Thing about the issue. I tweeted them, I messaged them, I even did the same on their special customer service Twitter account (which hasn’t even been active for a month! :S). Have I heard back from either accounts? HAVE I FUCK.

When you go onto the Pretty Little Things Twitter page the first thing you will see is a pink picture of them telling you how their customer service is down. This has been there since the start of August. At the time of writing this rant/post there are 55 replies to this image, including one of my own of people complaining about things. All sorts of things.

Same as me where they have been charged for something they shouldn’t have, people not receiving their parcels even though someone has “signed for them”, returns needing to be sent back but not being able to due to messages not being replied to and many more.

People have also stated how long they’ve been waiting for from one week, to almost a month. It’s pretty appalling really. I understand that they CLEARLY have some customer service issues right now, but when I had a look on Google about this obvious issue it appears to have gone on for ages now. It’s pretty bad.

It made me worry though from reading all the negative comments from shoppers about whether my shorts would even arrive! I mean I paid for next day delivery, I fucking expected it. I worried they wouldn’t arrive and if they didn’t, who would I have moaned to about it? NO ONE!

Luckily they arrived the day after and when I tried them on I was so gutted at first. They didn’t fit how I expected them to and they felt really tight. I was disappointed but I didn’t want to send them back due to the bullshit that everyone else had been through with the customer service, including what I had already been through. I sat smug and miserable for ages about it. It made me wonder if I had put on weight and feel crap. Then later on when I felt better I tried them on again and they felt better.

Every time I tried them on they felt better and still a week on they feel better every time I put them on. So I AM happy with the shorts! I really am! Even though they could be a bit baggier. I actually love this outfit that I put together with them and will probably wear stuff like this in the UK as well as possibly on holiday in the chilly evenings.

Do you know what pissed me off more though? Not the fact that I was charged more for the delivery than I expected, not even the fact that I’ve still to this day been ignored by customer service (when it clearly shows on my Twitter messages that they’ve seen my message!) BUT that they had a FREE NEXT DAY DELIVERY code on their sodding Twitter page.

It has just made me feel like a complete mug and to be honest it still does. They have promotional codes all over the place for all sorts of things. I do feel like it’s a catch to get you to pay more for the delivery. I know this could just be me being annoyed about what happened, but something doesn’t add up.

Although I love the shorts I bought I definitely won’t be buying from from Pretty Little Thing ever again. Their shitty customer service and their shoddy past with it has just put me off. I work in customer service myself so I know what good service should be like. I didn’t even get an apology for the wait BECAUSE MY ISSUE STILL HASN’T BEEN DEALT WITH.

Do I care if Pretty Little Thing reads this post? Do I fuck. Read it and learn from it because you really need to sort out your shoddy customer service issues. It shouldn’t take at least 2 months to sort things out for people who have trusted to buy from you.

Good luck is all I can say.

Have you shopped with Pretty Little Thing? If so have you had issues? What sorts of issues if any? Share any rubbish customer service stories too! I love to hear about them.

I do apologise for the rant, but as a blogger I sometimes feel it’s my duty to write good reviews as well as bad ones.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re all well!

This Or That: Summer Tag

Image taken from weheartit.com

I know we’re still in summer for well over a month BUT before we know it summer will be over, so I thought I would take part in this tag today before I NEVER get the chance to!

I found it over on lifethroughtsg which is run by Hayley. She didn’t tag me in taking part but I will anyway. I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend and Sunday. I’ve just had an amazing Lush bath. Enjoy the tag and make sure to take part yourself if you enjoy reading my answers.

1. Ocean or Pool
I like both to be honest for different reasons. When I went to Fuerteventura with Dane for the first time it was also the first time I went into the ocean properly and I actually really loved it! I’d probably choose ocean over pool though to be honest.

2. Beach Vacation or Wilderness
Definitely beach vacation! I’ve done wilderness before but I didn’t like it that much. I found that I couldn’t wait to get back home and I don’t want to feel like that when I’m supposed to be getting away.

3. Watermelon or Strawberries
Neither! Allergic to watermelon and I can’t stand strawberries.

4. Bikini or 1-piece
Bikini! At least you can get a tan on your tummy in one. 😛

5. Lemonade or Iced Tea
Iced tea!

Image taken from weheartit.com

6. Hotdogs… grilled or over a fire
Either way as long as they’re cooked. 😛

7. Hat or Sunglasses
Sunglasses.

8. Windows Down or AC all the way
Windows open, I want to hear all the sounds whilst driving.

9. Tanning Lotion or Sunscreen
What’s the difference? Anything that keeps me protected from the sun and gets me a tan all in one.

10. Baseball Game or Concert
Concert!

11. Ice Cream or Popsicle
Depends on the mood I’m in really. Usually opt for ice cream though in this country and ice lollies in Fuerteventura.

Image taken from weheartit.com

12. Fireworks or Fireflies
Fireworks usually but if I could see fireflies for a night I would love that.

13. Flip Flops or Bare Feet
Depends on the mood but definitely flip flops.

14. Water Balloons or Squirt Guns
Squirt guns are definitely more fun. 😛

So those are my answers for the summer this and that quiz! I really enjoyed giving it a go whilst I chilled out after my bath. I can’t believe that in just over a months time we’ll be into autumn weather. This year is going by so quickly!

Tell me, what’s your favourite and your least favourite thing about summer? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

I tag EVERYONE who reads this tag to give it a go! 😀 I’ll also be tagging a few of my favourite blogger beauties over on Twitter too so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you have a lovely evening.

Bikini Wish List Wednesday

I know I usually schedule posts for every 3 days (unless like recently where I was a lazy bitch and left a new post for a week…) BUT I wanted to do another wish list Wednesday post before I go on holiday.

I’m in desperate need of a new bikini and whilst the Iron Fist one I currently own is amazing and does a great job when wearing it, I would like something new that reflects my personality… I know that sounds weird, but hear me out throughout the post as to what I mean!

I also wanted a new bikini because whilst I loved and felt comfortable wearing my Iron Fist one on holiday, I didn’t feel that it stood out and I really want one that will! Especially when going down to the beach, which I hope to do more of on this holiday.

There is a sort of theme around all the bikinis I’ve added to this list too, I am aware of that after putting the image together. 😛 Enjoy the wish list!

  • Boux Avenue Cabaret Triangle Bikini Top – £28.00 (link)
  • Boux Avenue Cabaret Bikini Briefs – £16.00 (link)

Sadly (as you can see) this bikini isn’t cheap. It’s actually quite expensive for what it looks like from the pictures, BUT IT’S PURPLE AND LOOKS ALMOST HOLOGRAPHIC! I also don’t see many bikini tops that allow you to buy your bra size as apposed to UK dress size or S, M or L. This would be a nice bikini to wear around the pool at my house, as apposed to the beach, but it would also be really nice to wear with a pair of shorts and a sheer jumper. It is expensive though for what it is and due to this I’d want to not only have a look at in person in one of their stores, but I’d also want to try it on before buying. I think I’ll wait for this to go in the sale though. £44.00 is a lot for a bikini in my mind…

  • Soft Kitty Clothing Mermaid Bikini – £15.00 (link)

I really love the look of this bikini as it reminds me of Ariel from The Little Mermaid but again, it’s that mermaid print that I love so much appearing again. This is the cheapest bikini on this list and it looks really good quality too! The only thing that I don’t like about it is that it states not to swim in pools with chlorine, which I understand but at the same time that kind of sucks. I would wear the bikini top during sunbathing as it can be a bandeau but I don’t know that for sure. I can’t see this being a bikini I pick up, but if any of the ones on this list aren’t available before the holiday then this could be a last resort.

  • River Island Mermaid Metallic Bandeau Bikini – £16.00 (link)

This is a bikini set I’ve had my eye on for a while now but it always seems to run out of stock or is sold out in sales. It’s only available on ASOS now but for £16.00 this is a decent price in my mind for a River Island bikini! I’ve been after a bandeau for a while to be honest for sunbathing in, as well as going out and about. As you can tell I have a metallic and holographic theme going on with these bikinis and this one is such a gorgeous petrol colour!

Missguided Blue Metallic Harness Bikini – £25.00 down to £12.50 (link)

There seems to be a trend this year with harnesses on bikinis and whilst I love it, I find it may also be impractical when tanning due to lines being left behind everywhere. I wouldn’t wear this for sunbathing in, it would definitely be one for going to the beach or shopping. I love the bottoms more than anything as they look so flattering and comfortable! These are so cheap in the sale that a part of me feels like ordering them now. 😛 But I won’t, I’ll wait to buy the bikini set I’m talking about last on this post.

  • Boohoo Manhattan Hologram Triangle Tie Bikini – £18.00 (link)

I want a bog standard holographic bikini and this is probably the nicest one I have found, which is from Boohoo. They sell loads of stuff like this on eBay but I don’t trust the quality of eBay sellers stock. You can’t go wrong with Boohoo though and for £18.00 you can’t go wrong really. I’d wear this to go swimming in the pool, the beach and even to sunbathe in. So we shall see!

  • Killstar Arabella Halter Top – £19.99 (link)
  • Killstar Arabella Posing Shorts – £14.99 (link)

I’m saving my favourite item on this list until last! If there has been a bikini I have really fallen in love with, it’s definitely this one by Killstar. I was actually meant to order this and a dress with the same pattern when I got paid a couple of weeks ago, but I left it and bought a PS Vita instead… Priorities! 😛 BUT I will either be ordering this when I get paid next month, or September just before the holiday. Probably August though… 😛 I love mermaid printed things thanks to Black Milk Clothing and their gorgeous mermaid print leggings, which I own two pairs of (you can read and look at me wearing the one pair here) and love to death! I always take those with me whenever I’ve visited Fuerteventura, so why not wear a bikini with the same look to it? This one just looks sexy yet comfortable and flattering at the same time. I was worried this would actually cost more but when you compare the price of it alongside the Boux Avenue one, it’s a bargain really! This definitely isn’t a bikini I would wear when watching to catch the sun and tan and I’m sure you can see why! It’d be more something to wear on hot days whilst walking around with (again!) some shorts or even my Black Milk mermaid leggings. I just need this bikini in my life! 😛

So those are the bikinis I’m lusting after at the moment! There are so many things I want to buy and wear for the holiday and whilst I’m not low on funds at the moment, I don’t WANT to be low on funds either.

We shall see… I’m pretty sure I’ll be doing a haul of what goodies I get for the holiday.

Do you have your eye on any bikinis? If so please share them with me! 😀 Also, are you going on holiday this summer? Let me know where you’re going in the comments.

Until next time, take care all everyone and I hope you’re having a great week so far.

February Wish List 17

I’m still on a “spending ban” so I don’t actually know why I’m making this post… 😛 I’m not going to lie, my wish list posts are probably my favourite to write as I like to share some awesome new stuff that I want to add to my home, as well as to my lipstick and geeky collections.

So sod the spending ban! I’ll continue to do these posts until I don’t want to write them anymore! There won’t be anything too special on the list this month however… Just stuff I want to buy and cannot. Le sigh.

  • ASOS Reclaimed Vintage Black Sabbath Long Sleeve Top – £35.00 (link)

I recently discovered this piece thanks to Zoe London as she bought it herself and was talking about it in a video. To be honest though a lot of fashion YouTuber’s have bought this piece lately and it’s just made me want to get it myself more and more. Sadly it is out of stock at the moment… I’m hoping it’ll come back in stock in my size so I can erm… Maybe order one… ONLY A MAYBE CALM YO’ TITS!

  • Good Smile Company Deadpool Nendoroid – £42.99 (link)

As regular readers will know me and Dane love and collect Nendoroid’s and from the day it was announced we knew we would be getting the Deadpool one. I mean look how cute he is! We were planning on buying him this month ready for what we thought was his release date at the end of the month. Sadly that isn’t until next month… We can still pre-order him though as we intending on getting him as a Valentine’s treat to ourselves. 😛 What an excuse eh???

  • Disturbia Kiss My Ass Acid Wash Shorts – WAS £29.95 – NOW £22.95 (link)

I’ve wanted these jeans for quite a while now after I found someone selling them on Depop. I didn’t actually know they were still available to buy from the actual store until recently when I decided to check out their sales. I would love a new pair of denim shorts as I haven’t bought myself a new pair for quite some time now. I’d pair them up with geeky t-shirts and tuck them in. I doubt I’ll get these due to spending ban, but they’ll stay on my wish list for as long as possible.

  • Ray Ban Glasses – £98.00 (link)

I went for an eye test the weekend just gone after about two years of going without one and sadly my eyes have worsened, which means that I need to get a new set of lenses… Probably frames too it depends. I looked for ages in the opticians that I went into for a new pair and the one Ray Ban pair I liked were bloody expensive and the second pair I liked were nice but seemed really cheap. I had a mooch online and found Glasses Direct who sell designer frames at really good prices! They also sort out your lenses for you too, including thinning them down, which is what mine will need doing to them… Due to the blindness and all. I’ll hopefully get some soon but we shall see! I do really like my current frames so I don’t know why I should change them… A lot of people don’t want to put new lenses into them though which is annoying!

  • Nintendo 3DS Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World – £34.99 (link)

If there’s a Nintendo character that I really like (apart from Pokemon of course…) it’s definitely Yoshi! He’s just so damn cute and adorable and I just wish he was real. I especially love the little woolly Yoshi that was realised to coincide with the wii U version of the game a few years ago and really wanted to get one myself to put in my bedroom at the time. NOW the 3DS is finally getting its own version of this game which is really exciting! I gave the demo a go recently and really did enjoy playing it, so much so I’d love to pick it up today if possible as that’s when it comes out! 😛

  • Pusheen Colouring Book – £9.99 (link)

I’ve been after this colouring book FOR AGGGGGES as I love Pusheen so much! I guess I just want something I can faff about with and just relax with instead of playing games or reading, as sometimes I’m not always in the mood to do either of those. This being said, surely this colouring book with mostly consist of grey? 😛

So that was my wish list for February! Although I’m on a spending ban there are probably a couple of things off of the list that I’ll end up buying due to needing them (glasses), Valentine’s Day gift (Deadpool Nendoroid) and because I fancy a new game (YOSHIIIII!) but we shall see… We shall see.

What are on your wish lists for the month? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time all, take care and I hope you had a lovely week.

Preparing for my Holiday!

With my holiday in less than a month, I’m starting to prepare for what I’ll be taking with me and possibly what I may need to buy beforehand too!

I was having a look over at Two Seasons website and found loads of lovely pieces, which are all in their sale too. So I may have to treat myself after Christmas in preparation for my holiday, as well as for some bits and pieces throughout the spring and summer here in the UK too.

I know this seems like a sponsored post (and how I wish it was, I love Two Seasons!) but it honestly isn’t, Two Seasons is just one of my favourite shops on the high street. They sell skate, surf and snow clothing which are all styles I love. So they can never go wrong with the pieces they bring out!

I have to say I didn’t realise that most of these items were Element and I apologise for that… But I do really love the clothing that Element bring out!

I NEED some flip-flops for my holiday, I don’t own a pair and for being around the pool and walking around in the day I could probably do with some. I really like the look of these Hype flip-flops and for less than a tenner, I don’t think I can go wrong really!

I’ve had my eye on this clutch bag for quite a while and to see it in the sale has actually made me happy and the timing is perfect too! I really do want this for my holiday, as well as for nights out here in the UK too as it’s such a pretty but simple piece. I love foxes so this hooked me in the first time I saw it. I’d use this on nights out as well as in the day if I was just popping out somewhere local. Perfect!

This isn’t a must have item, but I have been thinking about picking up a new bag for 2015 anyway! I love my backpack, but I guess I just feel a bit young to have one of those now. But this being said I want a handbag I can settle on for quite a long time now and not feel the need to change it… We shall see about  this however. This bag is gorgeous though and I have looked at it before now in store.

You can never go wrong with boardshorts, especially if you like swimming and such like I do! I’ve already decided on my holiday that everyday will involve swimming and my boyfriend and I are even planning to try surfboarding, so these would definitely come in handy. They come in four different colours (black and white stripes, white and red stripes, coral and hot pink) but I like this colour the best. If I felt up to it I would wear these out and about in the day too. Can definitely see me picking these up.

This was a really expensive t-shirt, but what more do you expect from a high-end skate brand? When Element go in the sale though, they go cheap and are well worth the money. Once again,  I love foxes and have had my eye on this t-shirt for quite a while now. It sold out on the website for a while though and I was gutted, only to recently discover that it’s not back online. I would definitely like to pick this up for my holiday, as it’s just an excuse to buy it really!

I actually like these shorts a little better than the Billabong ones and I think it’s just because they’re not board shorts, so I could get away with wearing these a little more than the others. Either way I love both and you can never have enough shorts! These are a gorgeous banana yellow shade, which I really like and they would work perfectly with a few of my t-shirts I plan to take with me, as well as with my new bikini. Bargain too at under £13.00!

Another t-shirt… Also another Element t-shirt. I do apologise! This t-shirt is beautiful! A deep red and it looks really snug fitting and somewhat thick too. Element t-shirts are great and I already own a couple that I often live in when I’m having lazy days, as they’re just perfect for it. If I don’t buy this for my holiday I’ll buy it for more lazy days.

So that was my holiday preparations list! I can’t believe in just under a month I’ll be off on my holiday! Also it’s Christmas soon too! How exciting is that eh?

Just to say I’m sorry for being so quiet lately, I’m just do busy with uni work that sadly my blog is having to take a step back from my life. But I’ll be having a guest post one of the days this week so keep your eyes peeled for that!

I hope you’re all well and that you’re ready for Christmas now. Are you? If not then who do you have left to buy for? Let me know in the comments down below.

Take care all and see you soon.

Black Milk Clothing Wish List

Image taken from blog.slangmag.com

This post has been a long time coming! To be exact since I first started my blog 2 years ago! Crazy huh?!

Ever since finding out about Black Milk Clothing back on a forum I used in 2011, I’ve been craving a pair of their leggings ever since! However they are pricey starting at $70.00 Australian dollars (£37.44) and the most expensive pair I can see on their store right now being $90.00 Australian Dollars (£48.14).

The thought of paying these prices for a pair of leggings somewhat makes my nose bleed, but at the same time if you haven’t seen a pair of Black Milk Leggings, you need to, as soon as possible! These are some crappy garments you can pick up from your local market, oh no! Each garment you buy from Black Milk Clothing is made for you and will be made of a thick material with an amazing print on.

I’m pretty sure if you’re reading this, you’ve heard of Black Milk Clothing and I’m just rambling on. 😛

AND whilst I don’t have the funds (plus the fact I’m on a much-needed spending ban!) necessary to buy any Black Milk Clothing garments, I thought I would share with you what I would buy if I did however possess this sort of money, so without leaving it for another year to be written and posted about, let me show you my wish list!

Black Milk Clothing are pretty cool and as well as having some pieces they thought up ideas for themselves, they’ve also taken popular TV shows, films, artists, etc to use to make some amazing pieces!

Adventure Time Collection.

As regular readers of my blog will know, I LOVE Adventure Time, so when Black Milk Clothing announced before Christmas that they would have a collection dedicated to the show coming out, I jumped in happiness! However my heart broke when I looked at the prices, however I am DETERMINED to get a piece from this collection in the (hopefully) near future.

Image taken from blackmilkclothing.com

Lumpy Space Princess Leggings – $85.00 AUD.

I love Lumpy Space Princess, she’s by far my favourite in Adventure Time and I just couldn’t say no to these leggings when I saw them up for sale, as well as another piece which I will soon be showing you. I’ve always wanted a pair (or two) of Black Milk Clothing’s leggings and these are just funky! I’d wear them with a long black t-shirt or a just a nerdy t-shirt like my new Pokemon related one, which I shall be showing you all soon enough! Sadly these leggings aren’t cheap and at $85.00 AUD I’ll have to wait quite a while until I can afford them. *sigh*

Image taken from blackmilkclothing.com

Bro Hug GFT – $60.00 AUD.

This is probably my most affordable item from Black Milk Clothing and it’s this amazing t-shirt with Jake and Finn on it! I mean look how amazing it is, come on! I love how Jake can change into anything he wants, it’s so cool and amazing and all thanks to a muddy puddle when he was a puppy. This just looks so cute the way he’s cuddling with Finn and in a corny way it reminds me of me and my boyfriend, who is the most cuddly person ever! I’d wear this with everything and anything so that $60.00 AUD would soon pay for itself!

Image taken from blackmilkclothing.com

Lumpy Space Princess Reversible Skater Dress – $95.00 AUD.

The dresses from Black Milk Clothing have always astonished me and this one is just pure amazing and fills me with joy! But when I see the price of it, my heart breaks… It’s so damn expensive! I love skater dresses, they flatter my figure beautifully and this one would be a joy to wear out in the evening to gigs or for a night out with friends, but for how much I would be paying for it, I’d end up being far too scared to even wear it! This isn’t my most wanted item in the Adventure Time collection, but I wouldn’t say no if I had the cash to waste! PLUS it’s reversible so you’re getting two dresses for the price of one. 😉

Leggings, Dresses & Shorts.

Image taken from blackmilkclothing.com

Mermaid Chameleon Leggings – $80.00 AUD.

I have wanted these leggings ever since they came out and for a while but in a purple shade, but those have since been discontinued and when I spotted someone wearing these on my Instagram I thought how gorgeous they looked. They also have these in a light blue shade, multicolored jelly beans, a musk shade and a bright blue shade.

They’ve had quite a lot of mermaid related pieces on the website which are not discontinued, such as a Reverse DressCap Sleeve Bodysuit, Skirt, Catsuit, Silver Leggings (which are gorgeous!), Crop Top, Purple Leggings (my number one wish list item!) and finally Merman Leggings.

I love any aspects to do with water and I’m not a hipster girl who wishes she was a mermaid, I just love water. It’s gorgeous to look at, I enjoy drinking it and although I don’t do it as much anymore, I do really enjoy going for a swim if I get the chance to. A lot of my writing involves water into it in some way or another, to the point I created an evil based water character in one of my novels in 2012.

I would wear these leggings to death and if I ever get the chance to buy a pair of the Mermaid Leggings, I’ll be grabbing them with both hands, VERY tightly and shouting, “PLEASE TAKE MY MONEY!”

Image taken from blackmilkclothing.com

Artoo Dress – $95.00 AUD.

Okay I have wanted one of Black Milk Clothing’s R2D2 Swimsuits or Dresses for a long, LONG time but for how much they are, I don’t think I could even pay that much for something I probably wouldn’t wear that often. But this is a wish list, I’m allowed to wish if I want to!

I’m such a nerd, as many of you probably know or have at least realised by now I’m a massive NERD and love anything any typical nerd will like. I’m the type of nerd that as soon as I venture into a Forbidden Planet I want to buy most of the store… This doesn’t include Dr Who, Harry Potter or Supernatural btw… Although Harry Potter is cool!

My brother is a huge Star Wars fan, so when Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace came out in 1999 he threw everything Star Wars related at me and although I had watched the films that came out years before this one, I fell in love with R2D2 with this film and since then whenever I see anything R2D2 related I want it for a majority of the time… So much so I’m trying to get myself a cheap (but official) R2D2 case for my iPhone 5.

So to walk around wearing an R2D2 t-shirt, vest, dress, etc I would feel awesome and more nerdy than I feel when I wear my Pokemon and Star Wars t-shirts right now.

BUT for how much this costs, it’s definitely just an item I will wish and never buy as for what it is, it’s bloody expensive.

Image taken from blackmilkclothing.com

The Awesome Shorties – $50.00 AUD.

This is probably the cheapest item on this wish list, as well as the last item. I love a good pair of shorts to wear throughout the year and these would be worn a lot and at £26.74 these are well worth the money! That doesn’t include shipping btw. 😛

They’re gorgeous black shorts with a pretty cut out pattern at the bottom. I’d tuck a geeky t-shirt or a baggy t-shirt into these to wear during the summer with my spiked flats or even my Chelsea boots.

If these are still available in the summer and I have the cash to splash, I could see me buying these! They’re just a standard pair of shorts which can be worn all year around with anything and everything!

So that was my Black Milk Clothing wish list! There are so many more products I would love, but sadly they’re all discontinued, which is sad times.

Do you like Black Milk Clothing? If not, why not? Do you own any Black Milk Clothing pieces? If so which pieces do you own or what pieces are on your wish list? Let me know your answers in the comments down below!

Until next time, take care all!

What I Wore (5th October 2013) *BONUS SOPPYNESS AT THE END!*

Photo 1

Wow it’s been over two months since I last did a what I wore post and I can safely say I have missed doing these posts. The last one I did was during the summer and it was so hot the day me and my boyfriend went out that we wore next to nothing. Now the weather has completely changed and I’m finding myself snuggled up in baggy jumpers and bigger shoes.

During a weekend away at his we decided to go to a children’s farm to go walk around the countryside and see the farm animals that are kept there. I’d never been before and my boyfriend had wanted to take me for a couple of months now, so it was nice to finally be able to go.

We were meant to leave really early but we felt lazy and stayed in bed eating peanut butter Oreos and played GTA V Online, eventually we left to head to the farm, all snuggled up in our warm jumpers.

There will be a post about our trip to the children’s farm tomorrow and Wednesday so keep your eyes peeled for those if you wish to read them.

Anyhoo, on with the outfit I wore, these are by far the best pictures I have ever had taken of me for a what I wore post and they’ve been edited too so they look amazing! I want to thank my boyfriend for both  taking and editing these, he did such an amazing job and no matter what he does, I feel like the luckiest woman in the world right now.

As it seemed chilly out last weekend I decided to pop a beanie on, that and my hair wasn’t having one of its best days and we were in a bit of a hurry to go out. This hat is actually from the men’s section in Urban Outfitters and I bought it on one of mine and my boyfriends first dates, wearing it the day we got together. It’s lovely and warm and big enough to wear folded or unfolded. As I HAVE to wear glasses, I may as well mention that my glasses are by Versace and ultimate geek chic! I love them, won’t be replacing them for a while. The lipstick I decided to wear is Daddy’s Little Girl from the Archie’s Girls Collection by MAC, I wrote a review for this when I first bought it, which you can find linked above. I love this lipstick and I’ve been waiting for the colder months to come back so that I could wear these types of shades again!

I recently bought this jumper from New Look, infact the day before my October Wish List went live was the day I bought this as it went on sale from £24.99 to £12.00, so I tried it on  in store and I decided to buy it. It’s so warm and soft that I’d have been stupid not to buy it! Also as regular readers will know, I love foxes so anything with foxes on that looks nice and fashionable I’ll snap up! This isn’t the most fashionable jumper in the world, but at the end of the day it’s snug, comfortable, warm and looks cute teamed up with a skirt or shorts, which is what I did for this look, as you can see. It’s a cream and burgundy colour so it’s definitely on trend with the autumn colours and I know it’ll be something I’ll wrap myself up in as the weather gets colder.

I’ve owned these shorts since I started university in 2008 so… 5 years now! They’re some of the most comfortable shorts I own and yet the smallest ones I own, size wise. They cost me £10 and with my 10% back when I was a student, I paid next to nothing for these! They go well with anything and everything, they fit comfortably and as well as that, they make my bum look awesome!  I love wearing these during the autumn season with baggy jumpers or a quirky t-shirt with a boyfriend cardigan. I know I’ll be wearing these quite a bit over the autumn season and with one of my boyfriends jackets or hoodies layered on top of a band t-shirt, it’ll make an outfit look rocker chic, no problem! They’re my favourite basic denim shorts and it’s a shame that I haven’t been able to find anymore like this since I bought them.

As regular readers will know, I love wearing my creepers as they’re comfortable, a great alternative to flats or boots and are the perfect item to grunge up an outfit. This is my second pair of creepers after my first pair wore through the bottom and whilst out walking one day I was left with soggy socks and thus very wet feet! To buy a pair of creepers now you don’t need to break the bank and a decent pair won’t cost you no more than £20, I paid that much for my first pair, £15 for this pair. I love the suede finish on my creepers and all black too. I would like some with studs but as of yet I haven’t found a pair I either like or feel worthy of paying the amount of money that they ask for. Either way I love brothel creepers and I wish they had been around for these prices when I was at school, I’d have worn then to school all the time!

These are my two favourite pictures from the day, the one on the left just looks like something you would see on a movie/TV poster or even a book cover and it just looks really nice. It looks natural too, as my boyfriend did pretty much say, “walk away from me for a bit.” to which he would follow me across the grass, towards the pond/lake. The picture on the right just reminds me of the awesome pictures I see fellow beauty and fashion bloggers getting themselves, and the type of thing I myself have tried to get since I started taking pictures for my what I wore section on my blog over a year ago. When I posed for this picture I didn’t think it was actually going to work, but it’s turned out exactly how I wanted it and not long after this image was taken, my boyfriend and I relaxed for a bit together in the field and then headed back to the car to go home.

I really loved today with my boyfriend and I’ll be excited for you guys to read the two adventure posts I have in store for you to read! We both had an amazing day and I can’t wait to share more days like this with him.

I definitely feel like the luckiest woman alive right now, I finally seem to have the type of boyfriend I’ve always wanted. Someone special, kind, who treats me well and the way I wish to be treated and who looks after me when I’m poorly. My mental health hasn’t been too great these past couple of months and my boyfriend has stuck by me through it all, which has meant a lot. Usually people can get scared with this topic and flee as soon as possible, which in the past a lot of people have done, whether they were a partner or a friend. On top of this he is a real cutie, even for a ginger nut! He has these cute little dimples that I just want to poke with my finger, is that weird? He also makes me feel good about myself when I’m feeling at my worst. Majority of the time I’ll be a typical woman and complain how “fat” and “ugly” I am and he just turns it right around like a good boyfriend should and tells me all the good points about myself, which is really nice.

A lot of shit has happened during 2013, but me and my boyfriend getting together is by far the best thing that has happened to me this year and I haven’t felt so happy in someone’s company for a very long time.

Once again I want to thank my boyfriend for taking these pictures of me today, as well as taking the time to edit them all for me too. I wouldn’t be able to make this and my last what I wore post(s) possible if it wasn’t for him.

Stay tuned in the future for my first video on my blog, which will be the boyfriend tag!

If you have any questions or comments on how I styled my outfit, please feel free to leave them in the comments down below!

Until next time, take care and I hope everyone had as lovely a weekend as I did.
