Monsieur Lanvin avec H&M? OUI!

Have you heard?
Lanvin is doing a collab with H&M!!!

Menswear and womenswear...this will be a 
collection you don't want to miss!

H&M has previously teamed up with 
Stella McCartney, Sonia Rykiel, Jimmy Choo, 
Comme des Garcons and Victor & Rolf.

I wasn't that impressed with the Jimmy Choo
collection or the prices, but I will be having a look
at what Lanvin comes up with...even if I won't 
be purchasing anything...only time can tell :)

Will there be any stunning looks like this?

The pieces will be revealed on November 3rd 
and will go on sale on November 23

Will you be joining the que?

Missing In Action


(all images belong to the fabulous google)

Do forgive me for being so MIA recently,
but there is most probably more to come :S

I am in Ireland at the momento,
doing some work experience with my cousin
and her husband who are architects..I am not yet sure
if architecture is for me, but only time can tell...
what do you ladies do/want to do profession-wise?

(a pig farm work experience is planned for next week or so!)

In a couple of days I will be travelling to another 
part of Ireland to spend time with one of my best
friends (who is Irish, so has family&friends over here)
where I will be working on farms and generally
enjoying the countryside and leprechauns ;)

And then more travels after that so frequent blog posting
will not be a big possibility right now...

...I hope you are all enjoying your Summertime!

no school = shopping?

well..."school's out"...and I went shopping

Quite a lot of it is safari inspired
or something similar as I'm quite
into that atm and it those colours
look better when my skin has a 
summery glow hence I will be whipping
on the St. Moriz tonight
or tomorrow! 

summery khaki dress
(£7/8) h&m!

oversized jumper/dress
(was £12.99 now £7!) h&m
wore this today with leggings :)
so comfy :D

baggy khaki stripey top
(loving safar colours!)
with a bottom flap thing that covers
your arse haha! 
(also gorg with leggings)

primark bikini with 
an aztec-y print for £7
but it broke before I properly
wore it :(
[exchanging it today!]

simple black bandeau
for new look £3.20 (was £4)
-forgot to rotate the pic- oops

And that was my little shopping spree!

I know I am posting mainly hauls but I will
do a review or something else soon..

Say "Goodmorning" to Mornflake!

'Ello 'ello 'ello ladiesss!

I thought I would do a post on brekkie!
You've heard it all before- 
breakfast is the most important meal of the day,
don't skip it, skipping it won't aid weight loss 
( a King and I moment right there? ;)

It's fantastic if you can have some wholegrains and fibre
(and protein is great aswell, but my mornflake 
brekkie of this post focuses less on the latter)

I have it with some semi skimmed milk and fruit!

MOO! ^

This museli/cereal is gorg!
Don't be eating the sugary stuff that's filled
with colourings that turn the milk another colour!

This mornflake contains:

The only 'bad stuff' is the sulphur dioxide
preservative in the dried fruit, but other than
that this box is crammed full of 
yummy stuff including whole almonds! 

I first heard about this brand in this online article:

and then in tesco's I saw the cereal and 
now have a back up box! 
(For about £2 I wanna say)

I really think
it's a super start to the day that keeps
me satisfied for a long time..and
it's actually tasty! 

for added fabulous fibre
(great for the digestive system)

I will definately be having a bowl before my last
exam tomorrow, for a good dose of slow
release energy to keep my brain working throughout!

what do you lurrvely ladies have for brekkie?
post a comment!

But boot sales are oh so cheap!

As I sit here listening to Busted (ah, sweet nostalgia)

I may have to admit that I bought a few goodies at
the carboot sale today!
But I had to go, to show my dear pal
(PLUS, we bumped into Alexa! Yay!)
My best buys, in my opinion were:

This vintagey box thing for all bits and bobs!

How much? How much? How much?

Well, at first I was told £1...
but I was running low on the £££
I mean realllly low...


(or was it 66?)
who cares? because either way,

I also bought this book which I had read up about
and actually looked at a smaller version of
in a local book shop...

on the back it says £12.99

I know, right?!

Other than that,
I had a fabulous time later
when Nat, Iza and I went
for a spot of photography for
Nat's photography website which she
will *hopefully* launch this Monday!
(so excited to see it!!!)

And boy, was it hot today!
How did you beauties
enjoy/avoid the (rather heavy)
sprinkling of sunshine?

straws, strawberries and water from a guiness glass

Wednesday June 23rd: 
Summer officially started 2 days ago!

And what better to much on in the 
Sun than some succulent strawbs?
(no, not the haribo ones! 
golly gosh!)

I'd like to say, 'Here are some I grew myself!' 
but it was indeed the papa who planted them!
Some still have a wee bit to go
(I'm not even Scottish...OH WELL I like
the word 'wee' -in the sense 'little')
but some...
...are ripe and ready to be
plopped into the morning


(wow, I'm using a lot
of exlamation marks in this post
Now...back to 
the one
the only
(physics exam tomorrow..
then chemistry on monday
and then

and to finish off this post, 
I'd like to leave you lovelies a 
hydration tip! 
oh yes - big word :)

The summer sun has begun 
(couldn't resist the rhyme, 
do forgive my cheesiness)

(^couldn't help myself!)

Anyway, where was I?
oh yes..basically

-it's hot
-you get dehydrated
-you want to drink water
-you know you should drink 
more than you actually do

I have the answer!
(for me, anyway ;)

Some people really don't like water 
and say it has no taste etc etc
(maybe plop a starberry in 
your glass next time?
..just a thought..ANYWAY-
gosh, I am distractable)

Personally, I find drinking water 
pretty easy and second nature
 as I don't drink much else! 
I don't like juicy, fizzy drinks, 
or milk on its own..

even so, I find drinking out
of a big glass such as a Guinness
glass :) and with a
(fabulous luminous green)
makes me drink so much quicker
and just makes it easier..and
in a way more fun, haha!

Try it if you're trying
to drink lots of water
(H2O is super healthy
and good for you,

I should really get my hands on
those curly straws I reckon
most of you remember from childhood:

okay, this was a
crazy long post, 
if you got to this point 
then have an orange
as a reward :D :D :D

(photo taken in Spain 
this last Christmas :)

(and no, these aren't for you lazy little
skim readers!....I confess, I do it too
sometimes, so go on,
you can have an orange too!)

I must be in a very strange mood
- a delirious one indeed-
to offer people oranges through 
the internet...hehe, well 
this is me!

enjoy the sunshine
