The Big Chop - Raising money for The Little Princess Trust

Wave goodbye to my luscious long locks for in an week they shall be no more! I have decided to chop all my hair off in aid of The Little Princess Trust. The Trust not only provide children with cancer with real hair wigs but also look toward identifying and supporting research projects that focus on finding kinder treatments for children with cancer.

You can find out more about the charity here: http://www.littleprincesses.org.uk/

Anyway, nobody needs as much hair as I have! If you too have #HairToSpare then I urge you to do the same. The more children we can help the better!

I would really appreciate any donation you may be able to give. Thank you all in advance and I look forward to sharing pictures of my new do with you!

The Big Chop will take place on the 12th March! Click the button to help me raise even more! :)

Blackout

I have been meaning to showcase these pretty epic (even if I do say so myself) boots for a while now! I picked them up whilst in Dublin a few months ago. They're from designer Carolyn Donnelly's range 'The Edit' stocked in one of Ireland's most popular department stores called Dunnes Stores. I had no intention of buying anything while in Ireland especially not these ultra bulky boots as I was 'meant' to be travelling light and didn't take any luggage with me...but that all went of of the window when I saw these lonesome beauties on the shelf in the sale and in my size! I couldn't resist and ended up having to wear them to the airport with my trainers just about stuffed into my backpack! #Dedication.

They're real leather and SUPER comfy! I love that nobody else in the UK has these boots, people are always eyeing them up. Emerald Isle exclusives ;)





This was what I wore on New Year's day, which consisted of waking up at 11am, queuing for almost 45min at The Breakfast Club in Hoxton for brunch followed by a home cooked roast and as you can see lot's and lot's of black. (aka I was too tired to put any thought whatsoever in to my outfit or to even do my eyebrows *shock horror*).

NYE 2015 - What I wore

Happy New Year blogosphere!

And what a year it has been. My first year in the big wide world as a fully fledged adult. No more uni and a full-time job (and promotion mid-way through, yay!).  Not to mention I have realised my goal of travelling more and ticking more cities and countries off my list. The highlight had to be my trip to Reykjavic, Iceland  for my 23rd birthday where I was lucky enough to see the Northern Lights not once but TWICE! (Check my Insta @newestnickers out for some snaps but I will be uploading a travel post soon!).

I hope you have all had a great year too and here's to making 2016 even better!


(I legit just got freaked out by my own mirror reflection while typing this!)


So anyway, seeing as I haven't really been blogging much in 2015 (partly due to the fact I have been so busy with work) I thought I'd compile a quick outfit post to show you all what I wore to welcome the new year!


Oh, and what I drank to REALLY welcome the new year in style, obviously.

Here's to 2016!
