How to be Parsian wherever you are

Tuesday, 20 January 2015

This quirky fashion book covers love, style, and bad habits.  Along with its aesthetically pleasing lay over and cover this book has become ones bible on how to live like a true (stereotyped) Parisian woman. The book was no problem to read, it flowed well and was easy on my brain which gets distracted after about 5 minutes of staring at pages, but I couldn't wait to turn the page to see what other cheeky and hilarious advice was waiting on. It focuses on a few topics such as love, fashion, and French habits with a few dinner party recipes thrown in there and the ABC's of cheating. The book is a guide for any one and one I am letting guide me a little with some awesome advice. I mean why wouldn't I want to take the advice of Caroline De Maigret former model and ambassador for Chanel and the other four amazing woman, they have my trust! Plus it looks great sitting on my bedside table. 

I recommend this book for anyone who loves fashion and wants to channel their inner Parisian woman and style. Now I'm off to buy a bunch of black bras to wear under white blouses and find my signature perfume!

Skirt - Topshop / Shoes - Topshop / Ring - Bloody Mary Metal 

I've never been one for midi skirts but over the Christmas period I treated myself to a PU leather Topshop one which was perfect for nights out but not so much for day wear, since then I've been trying to find the perfect black more casual version and then a couple of days ago I came across this on Topshops 'new in' section and for £28 I had to get it. I probably could have made something very similar myself with the elasticated waist but this one is lovely!
I never really buy many shoes, but when I saw these I fell in love with them, not one for a pointy toe either but the design is so nice and can take me from day to night. 
My Bloody Mary Metal ring is my favourite item of jewellery I have ever bought, I'm not really a jewellery person, I always forget to put it on and then just never wear it again or lose it, but this ring moonlight stone crown ring has not left my finger, and if I do forget to put it back on I almost feel sad and weird with out it. I'm planning on increasing my BMM collection with stack rings and my fave the crossbones ring!

buy less, choose well

I've not really set myself any new year resolutions, I never stick to them and forget about them under a month in. I'm just going to concentrate on being a better person and treating myself better with the way I eat and look after my body. I've started with the challenge to eat less meat, although I doubt I will find it much of a challenge as I'm not much of a big meat eater anyway, along with that eating a lot healthier everyday maybe cutting down to only one Dominos a week..... The other small commitments I hope to keep such as controlling my temper, concentrating on my college work and also putting a lot more effort into my blog. 

But one of the main ones is buying less, the amount I spend on clothes a month is ridiculous and I end up getting myself into debt in just a month and end up attempting to sell it all and being left with pretty much nothing. Its one big vicious cycle. I end up with little money to do fun things with, and this year I would love to travel around more and also save some money for university. I'm going to buy a lot of basics in January such as jeans, a few day to night tops, a couple of pairs of shoes and from then on following Vivienne Westwood with the quote 'buy less choose well' and only buying things I fall in love with when I see it, I barely ever buy really nice expensive items and accessories so it will be nice to have some money spare to treat myself to things that will actually last, I just hope I can stick to it! Do you guys have any similar resolution but not resolutions style challenges you are setting yourself for the year ahead?

Jeans - Topshop / Boots - Topshop / Jumper - OASAP 

Super simply outfit today for my first day back at college and an all black one it is, looking like I'm kind of in mourning but of what? The festivities being over for another year or maybe how people people I've heard say 'well dry january went well' sarcastically whilst they drink a pint. Trust me I'm happy on the inside, today my UCAS got sent off for reals so I'm now anxiously waiting to hear back from my chosen universities. HOW EXCITING.
Anyway back onto the dim outfit, I got this jumper from OASAP and believe me when I say I have literally lived in it, its so warm and you cannot beat a good roll neck in this weather. Again as I say in most posts, sorry for the rubbish quality photos, I've promised myself a camera at some point in the on coming months, and hopefully my mum will be able to use this one ha!
