Cath Kidston - Autumn Collection

I don't know any girl who doesn't like Cath Kidston and I feel that the new Autumn Collection is as perfect as ever.

(British Birds bag, £68.00. British Birds umbrella, £30.00. Blue Floral dress, £95.00. Red Bow Front dress, £95.00)
I love all of these pieces, especially the blue floral dress and the black British Birds bag. I really want these items and I am thinking about how I can manage to afford them!
Ho hum! I need money and/or a job! See more of the collection at the Cath Kidston website.

Labelling Hearts

Within Homes and Antiques magazine I saw an idea which I completely loved and in my poor student state I decided to try and recreate it. The idea was to have little wooden plaques stating what was within a storage box. So here is my interpretation!

Summer Brollies.

It appears that summer has left the UK and that we have now been plunged into an early Autumn/Winter in terms of weather. I don't mind colder weather but I absolutely detest rain, I find it utterly annoying. Currently it is constantly raining and I feel like a drowned rat on a daily basis, which is tremendous fun. I am lucky enough though to have a lovely summer umbrella in which I feel everyone should have.

 My mum gave me this Monet umbrella which is lovely, she has one aswell but a different design, and I love it. People always look at it because its so lovely and I feel it slightly cheers me up in this weather.
So here are some other lovely umbrellas which are available at the minute, they are all from Brollies Galore.

I am off into the rain soon to meet Adam from work and go to the cinema to see Bridesmaids which I hear is hilarious, which I hope it is! I will be sure to take my Monet umbrella in the hope it can cheer me up!

However, this morning (when the weather was less worse) I decided to walk to Shields Road to have a look at the charity shops and I can tell you I was not impressed with the weather even when I had my trusty brolly!

 (Brolly, Monet. Top, G21, Scarf H&M. Face, not impressed)

Hope everyone is having fun and keeping dry! xx

Yummy food.

A couple of posts back I mentioned the chicken noodle soup which I had made, I've now decided to share my secrets with you! My recipe has a lot more ingredients than some others, however I feel that this mix is delicious and worth the extra ingredients!

I hope you try and enjoy this recipe! Adam, who hates vegetables, even eats this soup so I must be doing something right! xx

Rucksack Tuesday.

Following the vintage theme from the bicycles, I have decided to explore the rucksacks which would go perfectly with them! Rucksacks seem to be making a comeback and I completely understand why as they seem so handy and useful!

However as I am a penniless student, I am going to show a wide range of prices; the cheaper prices for me and the more expensive for people who can actually afford life! :)

I've actually been loving this cheap rucksack for a while now! So when I can justify it (yes, I know it's not a lot) I will buy it! xx

Bicycle Lust: BEG Bicycles.

I have a bike, a perfectly fine bike, however it's not one of these bikes. I swear if I have £675+ I would go and buy one right now! However I don't, so I am going to spruce up my old gem!

BEG Bicycles is a fabulous site which specialises in all vintage-esque bicycles and accessories! It is a lovely site which has some gorgeous bikes with names like Betty and Bella, you cannot go wrong! I really would like a Betty bike, ho hum. I am going to go look at ways of sprucing up my old bicycle, ahhh the life of a penniless student! xx

New Love!

I love this song by Bastille, it's called Laura Palmer. I think this is the video made by the band, however I'm not sure! Anyway the stills are beautiful and the song seems to work with the stills. xx

The last couple of weeks...

...have been awesome. The weather has been lovely, bar the humidity and subsequent storms, and my friends and I have definitely made the most of it! We have had at least 3 BBQ's as well as various meet ups and fun!
I found a new iPhone app named photo mess which allows me to make a montage, as such, with loads of my photos so here is a little insight into why I have been such a rubbish blogger.

Clockwise from top left:
Adam & Steve being men with the BBQ, my own homemade chicken noodle soup which is delish and I plan on creating a post about it soon! Adam in his new Barclays uniform which is a lovely aqua colour. My cocktail/pasty bunch girls and I! My garlic plant, which is coming along nicely; still not as good as my chilli pepper and strawberry however! And lastly, the aforementioned cocktails which were lovely and yummy! Lovely times :) how has everyone else been spending their time during the nice weather? xx

I want this ring so badly, it's actually so odd and interesting. However I have no idea where it's from and I cannot manage to find a source so if anyone knows please tell me!

Hope everyone has been enjoying the nice weather :) xx
