I LOVE: Black Milk.

The Judge 2.0//Pug Dress//Lace Suspenders//Mummy catsuit

I've been a lover of BM since I first saw their galaxy leggings a few years ago and instantly fell in love. All their pieces are all so different and look very well made. I would love to get my hands on anything BM but their items are pretty expensive for someone who is out of work at the moment but once I get a job I really want to order myself something. Maybe someone will buy me a piece for Christmas, a girl can hope, right?!

My favourite pieces are their galaxies! They're all so perfect and who wouldn't want galaxies on their body? I also love their Star Wars range, I think I would actually cry if I owned something from that range. BM keep posting sneak peaks on their Facebook page (click most recent pictures for sneak peaks) and it makes me so jealous of the girls who already own them. The dresses are just amazing.

Shutter speed.

Hello lovelies! A little bit of a different post from me today but I wanted to show you how myself and Ben spent our saturday night. As I said in a previous post, Ben has a new camera we wanted to think of a new way to use it, so I googled for idea's and found light pictures. They're done by slowing down the shutter speed on the camera, plus messing with the exposure. They're so fun and easy to do, all I used was a torch app on my phone and I think they turned out great!

More picture's can be found here (click images to enlarge).

Sunday Wishlist #19 - Halloween inspired.


I love the New Look t-shirts, I think they'd look great with a pair of disco pants. I really cannot wait to order the eyeball ring too, it's only £2.99 from trusty Ebay. How cute is the Lazy Oaf skull dress too?! Why do I not have £65 to buy it with it? I love the ORLY spell bound set too, the colours are great, it also includes Black but it didn't have a swatch and the picture of the bottles looked weird.

Autumn Leaves.

Heart Jumper - Chic (similar here)
Bag - Select (20% discount as product was marked wrong)
Red Converse - Office (bought about 4 years ago and this was the 4th time i've worn them)

Hello sweeties, I've had such a lovely day, Ben and myself walked into town so I could buy a bag to take to Alton Towers monday then we walked around town looking for somewhere to take pictures as he has a new camera and wanted to use it. We found a nice little spot to take a few shots, he took other picture but wouldn't let me share them, other than the one above (booo!). He also took some full length shots but they look pretty blurry on here for some reason, so I haven't added them. I adore the jumper, its so comfy and quite warm, I was pretty unsure whether to actually wear my converse as I thought it might be too much Red but Ben assured be it looked okay. 

I've got my usual weekend posts (Sunday wishlist and blog of the week) scheduled as I'll be spending the weekend Sunday at Bens parents to go to Scarefest Monday, I'm terrified. There's no chance in hell i'll be going in the scaremazes, i've scared myself too much by watching youtube videos.

Get to know my "style" tag.

How would you describe your style?
I've been asked this a few times and I always freeze because I have no idea how to answer. I'd say I don't really have a style I just dress for the mood I'm in. I wear jeans and t-shirt mostly but recently I've loved wearing dresses and playsuits with tights. 

Who inspires your style?
I have a few people who's style I love, Hayley Williams, Caroline Flack, Alexa Chung and Fearne Cotton have always been people I've looked up to for their style. I also see people on tumblr and if I like what they're wearing i'll look it up on the internet. Also people around me inspire me too.

What are your "wardrobe" staples?
I have one pair of skinny jeans I wear to death and also my vans, I wear them everyday. 

What's the most expensive item in your "wardrobe"?
I tend not to buy anything high end, but I think the most expensive item is probably my Pauls Boutique bag that my cousin bought me for my 18th birthday, also a River Island bag she bought me for my 16th birthday too. I don't like to buy things that are very expensive because I got bored of my clothes quite quick so I don't see the point in spending lots of money.

What's your most wanted item?
Disco pants, I don't even care if they're AA or not, I've seen a pair on Ebay for £17.99 and I really want to order them when I have the money. I also really want a Vivienne Westwood and a new pair of Vans, just a plain pair as the ones I have now have holes in them.

Favourite designer?
I love Henry Holland and Vivienne Westwood, I would kill for a VW bag. I browse ebay quite a lot looking for one but I don't think I could ever justify spending so much money on a bag.

How much do you spend on clothes?
It varies each month, I can go for quite a while not really spending much on clothes. I think the last time I properly went shopping for myself was a few months ago.

Where do you shop?
Mostly Primark, Ebay, Select, anywhere online.

Favourite Frangrance?
Katy Perry - Purr and Meow, Britney Spears - Curious.

Halloween treats from MUA.

MUA are offering 3 (yes, 3!) free gifts to anyone who spends over £10 (excluding P+P). The free gifts are: Eye Trio in Smoke Screen, Intense Colour Eyeliner in Bright Orange (web exclusive) and Nail Polish in Shade 6. Offer ends 10am 1st November, happy shopping!

Style Envy #2 Alexa Chung.

I have always adored Alexa's style, I love that she mixes high street and high end. She always looks perfect too, lucky! She looks amazing in anything whether she's dressed up or down. I particularly love her in just jeans and t-shirt.

Her make-up and hair always looks so flawless too (hate her for that aha),  I loved her dip-dyed hair. She's the reason I want it but would it suit me?

Do you like Alexa's style?

Blog of the week ♡ gee horsfield.

This weeks blog of the week is the lovely Gee. Her blog is fab and it's definitely one of my favourites. Her blog has something about it, I don't quite know what that something. I just know its good. Gee's blog is one of my favourites because it's so varied, I could just sit for hours and read her posts.

I also love her illustrations! They're so great and she has such talent, you see two of them used in my blog love by the lovely Ashleigh and Jayde, you can also purchase your own here (pictures below, hope Gee doesn't mind I used these).

Sunday Wishlist #18.


Think weeks Sunday wishlist is pretty simple and contains lots of black (not intended), the cat Jumper is by far my favourite item in this wishlist, it's so cheap too (£11.75!, bloody bargin). I think that all the items would great as an outfit too, just add my leather jacket and i'd be perfect.

I LOVE: All things Halloween!

Skeleton Dress (similar here, product is out of stock)// Bat hanging decorations// OPI So So Skullicious

Ooooh how I love Halloween! It was always my favourite time of year as a child. Every year I always say I'm going to get dressed up and go out but it never happens. I always end up sitting in watching Halloween movies instead. I might go into town for Fright Night this year though and I am attending Scarefest @ Alton Towers on Monday so I am taking part a little. 

In this post I thought I'd show you all some of my favourite Halloween finds, I love the Skeleton dress (even if it is a bit pricey). I also love the nail wraps, cute huh? I'd also recommend Models Own - Halloween gift set which includes Toxic Apple, Fluro Orange and Black nail art pen, all for £10 (saving £6)! 

How will you be spending your Halloween this year?

Style envy #1 Fearne Cotton.

I have adored the beautiful Fearne Cotton, ever since the days of TOTP and Smile! I love how casual her style is, she looks amazing in anything. Fearne is the master of proving that Converse can go with anything too (pictures below). I love her converse paired with the maxi dress.

I have recently been loving Fearne's pregnancy style too, so cute. Pregnancy really suits her. Her style hasn't really changed much while she's been pregnant but everything just looks so much cuter with her adorable bump. Her child is going to be one beautiful baby.

What do you think of Fearne's style?

Blog of the week ♡ milkteef.

This weeks blog of the week is Emma who runs milkeef! I've been an avid reader of her blog since before I started mine, I love her layout. I think wood backgrounds look great on any blog and I think it gives a kinda "warm" feel to her blog, very inviting.

I love Emma's outfit posts most on her blog, they're always so different and she has amazing style! If you don't already read her blog, go check it out. It might be what you've been looking for.

Sunday wishlist #17 - Think pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.


I thought I'd make my wishlist a little different this week by making it all about breast cancer awareness as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Looking on the internet I never realised how many breast cancer products there is out there, Amazon has some amazing products at the moment.

I also thought I'd share with you what WWE are doing for Breast Cancer awareness month. John Cena has been wearing a Black and Pink Rise above cancer shirt, each superstar has been wearing rise above cancer sweatbands and they also have a pink middle rope. Rise Above Cancer products are available on WWE shop and all proceeds going to Susan G. Komen for the cure charity.
I'd really love to do something for breast cancer awareness month and I think I may buy something for the amazing cause.

Find more about what's happening for Breast Cancer awareness month here.

Cosmic love.

Hello lovlies! Another shocking set of pictures, sorry :( I literally had to build a tower on a chair to take these as I don't own a tri-pod. I adore this outfit, my very first pair of galaxy leggings or as my brother calls them time vortex leggings, hehe. My boyfriend ordered them for as a complete surprise. Isn't he a good en? I cannot wait to order another pair in a different style, they're by far the comfiest leggings I own.

What do you think of my leggings? Are you a lover or hater of the galaxy trend?

Life update #1.

Hello lovelies, just a quick life update from me today. I haven't really done much recently apart from being pretty ill, getting better then develop a terrible, terrible cold. Being ill does have its advantages though, myself and Ben have watched series 1-4 of Doctor Who as he hadn't seen any with David Tennant as the Doctor (I couldn't believe it! He's by far my favourite doctor for so many different reasons), I'm pretty sceptical to watch any starring Matt Smith though as I can't imagine anyone else being as good as the 10th Doctor but I have heard great things about series 5-7. I think i'll just need to man up and watch them!

I'm getting really bored of everyday life recently, all I seem to do is wake up and blog. As much as I adore blogging I really need a job, being on JSA sucks and I feel like I'm letting everyone down by not having a job. I really want to earn my own money even if it is just a christmas temp. If anyone knows anywhere in sheffield, let me know!

I do have quite a few things lined up for the next few months, I'm going to Alton Towers Scarefest with Ben, his brother Daniel and a few of his friends for Halloween (do I dress up or not? I really wanna go as Donnie Darko) and then I'm going to Birmingham on November 5th to see WWE World Tour Live, which is being aired on TV. I really couldn't be more excited about seeing John Cena and CM Punk live again, hopefully some wrestlers be doing a signing somewhere too. Meeting Kane in March was so great yet very strange at the same time. My cousin also asked me to make some baby shower cupcakes for her friend in the end of November and I can't wait to make them, my cousin really wants to make white chocolate cupcakes and I've decided to frost them with baby Blue and White swirled vanilla frosting decorated with Blue glitter and hands and feet (found here and here). I have no idea what else to decorate them with, if anyone has any ideas, leave me a little comment.

I have some outfit posts lined up for you all, including my new Romwe Starry Night leggings that Ben bought me and possibly more if I buy anything at the weekend from Meadowhall.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week!
Love Alex

New Look Denim Competition.

Here's my entry for the New Look and Asteria-Sparkle's Denim challenge to promote New Looks new collection of jeans. The price is £200 and a pair of jeans for 9 runner ups also winning a pair of jeans.

  • Create an outfit for any occasion with items from New Look, be creative and think outside the box, just make sure that the jeans are the center piece of your outfit.
  • Publish the outfit to your blog! And be sure to mention and link to New Look and Asteria-Sparkle's.
  • To finalise your entry leave a comment on Asteria-Sparkle's with your name, email, blog name and link to your chosen outfit.
  • Tweet your blog post too using #denimcomp for inspiration for other bloggers. 
The competition closes at 12pm on Friday 5th October.

For this challenge I focused the outfit around a simple pair of Black skinny jeans. I wanted to make the outfit as comfy and cosy as possible for the chilly weather we've been having so I added a very a beautiful dark Red jumper, Black Leather jacket then accessorised with a Black scarf, Silver Stag ring (favourite item in this post!), Steve Madden Studded Tote and Silver and Black Spike/Chain Bracelet. I also added Skull embellished shoes to finish the outfit off. I also really wanted to focus the outfit around Red, Black and Silver as I think they all complement each other really well and Berry tones are really "in" this year. 

I really love this outfit and would wear it myself, I really want the shoes and Jumper now so I think i'll be going to buy them in the near future.

What do you think?

Love Alex
