Circus

Dress: Courtesy of Urban Outfitters. Shirt: American Apparel. 
Loafers: TopShop. Bag: Balenciaga. Sunglasses: Rayban. Nails: 'lemon' from Barry M.


My absolute favorite thing about these pictures is the lady with the blue nails who's looking at the camera like "WTF!?!?". Hilarious!

I went Bikini shopping in Oxford Circus today. I adored all the ones in my earlier post but they were all £100 and up. A little too much for scraps of material right? Anyway I found a very cute one in River Island that I'm in love with.



I think the frills add a flirty vibe and the print feels vintage. I'm very happy :) If any of you fancy one of these get the size up, the bikini pants are so tiny! They almost showed my whole bum!

There was some great stuff in River Island today... For those of you that don't already know, River Island have done a Miu Miu 'inspired' shoe... They come in both navy blue and pink. I didn't buy a pair but I've done all the research for you. They are obviously not as gorgeous and lovely as the Miu Miu ones but I think if you want a little fashion fix then for £50 they're great.

Still life


Um... How amazing is this picture!?!? The extremely talented Ana from BLOW 8 drew it. You should check out her blog. I think her art work rocks! I was so excited when she sent it to me! I love how she drew all the lace detailing. The original picture is below. She did a great job, right!? The lace detail on her picture is awesome.
You can see the full post of this outfit: Here

I've had no time to take outfit pictures this week. We move house in exactly one week so our time has been spent measuring things and in Ikea aka hell. I did get a quick phone snap of my dinner outfit though...
Shorts: TopShop. Top: Courtesy of Urban Outfitters. 
Blazer: River Island. Shoes Miu Miu.

We took our friend Tolga out for a birthday dinner at our favorite French restaurant. I think we all consumed our body weight in butter. Gotta love french cooking!

More outfits this week.... If the boy and I don't kill each other from the stress of moving ;)

You learn something new everyday...

Whooga ugg boots

I do not like UGGS I think they are ugly and they don't look nice with any outfit that I can think of. However... I do own a pair. They are my slippers/running to the shops to get milk shoes. I also wear them if I have an incredibly early start when I'm filming (I also wear my p.j's then but that's for another time).

I always thought that 'UGGs' were the real deal and all other boots that looked like them were fakes... I was wrong. It turns out that 'ugg' literally means a sheepskin boot. The UGG Australia ones that have become so popular are just another brand of sheepskin boot. Confused? It is explained better here.

I was sent these Whooga uggs and I have to say they are better then my "real" uggs. They are so bloody cosy. As most of you know I've been sick recently so these have been practically glued to my feet whilst I lay on the couch. The lining is lush and thick- which is exactly what you want from slippers that are socially acceptable to wear on the street.

Whooga are offering 100 Ring My Bell readers a $30 gift card to use on their site. Yep that's right I said 100 of you. The code is 515RINGMY. It will work for the first 100 people to use it.  Copy and paste the code.

Layered


Skirt: Gifted from Urban Outfitters. T.shirt: American Apparel. Boots: TopShop. Necklace: Accessorize 

I love the layered pleats on this skirt, they make it more then just another body con piece. What really drew me to it though was the material... stretchy without being full on lycra. I have a few more pieces from Urban Outfitters to wear including a dress... Now it is FINALLY sunny again I'll get to use it. Whoo Hooo! 

We went to visit our new apartment today, to get some measurements etc... Not long now until we move in!!!! I cannot wait! I've compiled a HUGE file of apartment porn inspiration but here are just a few pictures for you to salivate over.

Pink chaise lounge AND a Union Jack Tapestry? Oh yeah.
We have these chairs.... Now we just need a table and a brick floor.
Yellow couch+ zebra rug= Purrrrrrfection.

Soooooooooooooon!

Kandee GIVE AWAY!!!!

Shirt: American Apparel. Skirt: PINE. Boots: courtesy of Kandee. 
Socks American Apparel. Bag: Chanel.

I woke up feeling a million times better today :) I got sent these boots by Kandee and immediately wanted to wear them. They're called 'The Milky Bar Boot'. Cute, right!? They have a kittenish lolita vibe which I love. Kandee is an extremely cute shoe line based around yummy sweets and candy. The shoes have names like 'lemon sherbet pump' and 'dolly mix wedge'.  The idea is just too cute for words.... which is why I've used the word 'cute' a thousands times already so far in this blog! You can see Kandee here. This line will be huge! It's already been featured in InStyle....

Those lovely people at Kandee not only sent a pair for me they also sent a pair for one of YOU!

Dippa Stick ankle boot.

I tried these on today and they look amazing with jeans, the yellow heel is a great pop of colour. I was of course tempted to keep these beauties for myself but I love you all too much <3

Here's how you can win...
  • Follow Kandee and Ring My Bell on twitter here and here.
  • Follow Ring My Bell on Bloglovin here.
  • Comment on this post with your name, email address and Twitter name! 
  • The give away will close on wednesday 23rd June.
Good luck!

*These boots are a size 40 but they come up a little small. I'm a 39 and they fit me perfectly*
