24th birthday wishlist

So...I'm turning 24! On March 2nd I will be one year away from my mid twenties. This year there really wasn't much that I wanted or needed for my birthday but I managed to whip up a small list of ideas for my mum who always asks if there's anything I want. 

ONE

- This is an odd one, but it's a 2016 wall calendar. This is the Alice in Wonderland by Rifle Paper Co and I adore their illustrations, I want to cut out the drawings and frame them in my bedroom! 

TWO

- This is the enrapture totem wand curler, the curler I've had for 3 years and use every time I curl my hair. It has three sections on the wand that can be changed individually heat wise which means you can decide how tight or loose sections of your hair are. Sadly my curler has gotten pretty old and the wire has started to die out, so I need a replacement. 

THREE

- This is another Paper Rifle Co illustrated Item, a book. I thought this would look so lovely on my bookcase! 

FOUR

- Yep! Another book. I have been a huge (huge huge) Gilmore Girls fan since I was in year 10 of high school (that's 8 years ago) and It used to be on E4 at half 3. I finished school at 3.15 and would race home to watch the episode. To date I've watched the whole series about 5 times through and really enjoyed the reunion series too! I would love to read Lauren's book to learn more about her as a person and also behind the scenes from Gilmore Girls. 

FIVE

- Is it really a LPWT wishlist without some Cath Kidston?! Nope! When CK announced their Disney collaboration, I was so freaking excited. And when I found out one of the collaborations was Minnie Mouse I was READY to buy it all.. then it came out and was snapped up by everyone before I had a chance to get anything. I was really sad to find they only had the Minnie Mouse iPhone case in a iPhone 7 size (I have a 6) and so basically wrote off the collection as something I'd never own! Recetly they recalled all left over disney stock from stores and popped it online meaning they had more available online and I found that they now had an iPhone 5 & iPhone 6 case available in this design. Fingers crossed I get it :D

ootn | the theater


Two weeks ago I headed out to The Lowry Theatre with my mum to see The Curious Incident of The Dog in The Night Time, and I took it as a chance to dress up. I don't go to many places so when I do I love to whip out my favourite pieces, curl my hair, wear some lippy and enjoy myself. 

I was so stoked when I found this navy and white stripe body con dress in an M&S outlet for £12 as it reminds me of my 17-19 year old self who was obsessed with all things navy or nautical. It's a super thick fabric which kept me warm and also made me feel less self conscious about not wearing 'hold you in pants.' I paired it with this stunning silk feel reversible bomber jacket that I got for a bargain £10 in the sale at Primark. It has gorgeous cherry blossom and bird embroidery on the front and back and I just think it is gorgeous! I then just wore some white frilly ankle socks and my white and navy converse. This is such a me outfit and it felt great to be 'in my own style' again as working from home I generally just throw on leggings and a t-shirt most days. 

Let's talk finishing touches; I wore this pastel and gold skull necklace which actually has a really interesting story behind it. I purchased this necklace when I was 17 in a Topshop sale for around £4 and wore it all-the-time. I took it away with me to Spain and sadly on that holiday we had our suitcases stolen from the boot of our car whilst we had some lunch before heading to our villa (super traumatic experience) anyway, I lost the necklace (along with two cameras and all my favourite clothes.) When I got home I spent months trying to find the necklace on eBay and Gumtree and never found anything. A year later I was just casually on eBay when I saw the necklace, never been worn, amazing condition and I snapped it up! I think I only paid about £2 this time and I was so ecstatic. Who knows, it could have even been the very same necklace for all I know! I then curled my hair which is my favourite way to style it (if I have the time) and did a natural smokey eye and wore a collection cream lip. Overall I was really happy with this whole outfit and whilst I'm no fashion blogger I was happy I got some snaps to show myself I can scrub up OK when I put some effort in haha.
