Trend Alert: Spots

Spots have already been pretty big news of late, but with the sighting of not one, but two royalties sporting the look, fashion forecasts that spots will be taking over for Autumn. Oh, and how cute is the royal baby?! Congratz Kate and Wills!

I’ve always had a soft spot (haha) for polka dots so today I’ve got together all my favourite spotty items, which are your faves?

Jack Wills (in the sale) £19

I love the olive colour of these jeans, they add to the too cute vintage feel of them – love, love, love!

Boohoo £10

This is so versatile, and for £10 I reckon you could get plenty of wear out of it – and it’s so pretty!

New Look (in the sale) £12

This is so sleek and modern, if I had a tablet it would soo be going in this!

Topshop £29

This would look really cute either tucked in, or loose – I just love it!

Topshop £30

I love these too much for words. They’re so retro, cute and awesome… if only they were half the price. 😦

Forever21 (in the sale) £1.99

Just add a touch of the trend to your outfit with this big and beautiful bangle!

Cath Kidston (in the sale) £18

Cath Kidston plimsolls are total classics in my books and would just look adorable with jeans, skirts, shorts – you name it!

Something A Bit Different…

First of all, I must apologise for the huge gap between posts – I have been crazy busy recently but now that school has finally finished for Summer, I am FREE and will hopefully be posting more. Until I then go on holiday to America that is… OhmydaysI’msoexcited!!!

But, anyway, today I thought I’d share a poem I wrote. Before you read it, I’d like to make clear that I love make-up as much as the next person, but I don’t feel it should be compulsory. Every now and then, everyone should feel happy enough in their own skin to have a no-make-up day. Dare to bare I say!!

Made up

Make-up
For what?
The fact I’m not PERFECT?
My FLAWS?

Make-up
A face,
Another person,
CONFIDENCE soars?

Make-up
A verb,
A violent
Instruction.

Make-up
For your UGLINESS,
Self esteem
Destruction.

Make-up
More NECESSITIES,
Build up your BEAUTIFUL
Mask.

Make-up
More rules.
Worship each PURIFYING
Task.

It’s not the best thing I’ve ever written, but I wanted to take out a bit of my anger at the media for making us all believe we HAVE to wear make-up to be pretty.
