There is lightning in this room

Today is so not warmer! What were the weather people on about?! I still haven't managed to take my coat off after returning from work so I thought the laptop might be a good source of heat due to the fact it's old and liable to overheat at any moment. Of course, I can't sit with a computer and not look at clothes online - pretty sure it's impossible. Today was the turn of Topshop and so here are a few of my favourite picks:

I think it's time for some rice pudding to warm me up a bit!

All along it was a fever

Where did January go? We only have a few days left until February and that means Valentine's day. As a single girl this year, I will be spending the weekend with friends having a girlie dinner and a few cocktails to celebrate our freedom. My online 'window' shopping has led me to some beauties by Nasty Gal so I thought it would only be fair to share with you. Below are some favourites from the site. If I wasn't saving for the holiday of a lifetime then Nasty Gal would have all of my pennies by now!

Seeing as this post is a little bit Valentine's themed then I thought I'd post a few slower tracks that I've been listening to recently.

One of the most beautiful covers I've heard in a long time.

I love Rihanna's softer side. Much more appealing when she just uses her voice!

Slightly in love with the lead singer and his excellent jumper.

Dissolve me

Sometimes Twitter comes up with gems by total chance. I often get followed by companies just looking for a follow back but Dotcomgiftshop caught my eye and pulled me in! Full of vintage style homeware and little gifts, it is the perfect place to buy presents for others. I adore the elephant egg cup (below) and would easily be able to find a space for all of these things in my tiny, ever so cluttered flat.

Only a very short post today as I am exhausted after the first week back at work and thinking about putting some new things into motion. Seeing as my blogging is a little sporadic at the moment, here are some others that I go back to time and time again. In fact, I think I might need some kind of treatment for my addiction to Rose's recipes on The Londoner.

  • Cupcakes and Cashmere A lifestyle blog written by Emily Schuman. She always seems to be creating something new or taking pictures of beautiful little decorations.
  • The Londoner Rose's writing puts most bloggers to shame, particularly holidays posts when she describes scenery in such detail. The pictures (and her entire life) are just fascinating. Oh and did I mention the FOOD?
  • Ring my Bell If you watch Revenge then you'll recognise Ashley from there. Her blog is packed with outfit posts, sunny weather and model style poses. Love it!
  • Marieloves Wavy hair and tons of beauty products? Yup. Great for girlie girls who like to keep up with beauty tricks and fashion pieces.
  • Shewearsfashion Yet another serious beauty who gives me leg envy, Kavita has a really quirky style and seems so sweet through her writing. She also has a little shop selling vintage goods.

Happy reading x

From here on out

We're a week into 2013 now and everyone is full of resolutions, plans and dreams. I love the feeling of a fresh start and the opportunity to begin new things. I spent NYE with one of my best friends watching our own firework display next to a river. Nothing could have been better. We had spent the day buying tickets for our dream trip to Thailand and celebrated with takeaway and trashy tv until we rushed to celebrate the new year outside.

I've always been one of those people that dreams and hopes but deep down thinks it won't really happen. Thailand is actually happening. Can't quite believe it myself. The trip isn't happening until summer so that allows plenty of time to get the bikini body I've always wanted and save up enough so that I can eat my weight in noodles out there. In the meantime, I shall be spending my time on Tumblr, Pinterest and flicking through hundreds of guidebooks.

Here are a few things filling my head:

(Pictures taken from Pinterest and Tumblr - none are mine. If it belongs to you I will happily link to it)

Here's to a truly happy new year!
