What I spent half of my Style Compare Voucher On & Winner of Style Compare Competition!

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Hey Lovelies!

First things first, sorry for the lack of posts this week! If you follow me on Twitter you will know I am a third year uni student, so the past two weeks have been very stressful as it's deadline time! Today marked a pretty epic day as a third year as I handed in my dissertation!! The piece of work which is both my baby and the bain of my life was finally completed and well I'm very relieved! I did my dissertation on beauty blogs (what else? Well it was that or a study on Cheryl Cole) and it provided some very interesting results! Big thanks to everyone who participated in either my questionnaire or interviews that I carried out for research and let's just hope my hard work has paid off! I still have two more deadlines next week but I feel a big chunk is out of the way so I'm a little less stressy than I've been the past couple of weeks! So with a well earned night off, I decided it was time to blog and announce the winner of the Style Compare voucher! Apologies it's taken me so long to announce a winner, like I mentioned above I've been pretty busy, but I finally chose a winner and I used Random.org. Which chooses a random number/comment and the winner was Kelly White! Congrats Kelly :) I have emailed you so check your inbox! Thanks to all the entries, maybe I'll hold another giveaway sometime soon.. maybe when I reach the big 2000? :)

Okay so I very luckily won a Style Compare voucher too when I won last month's blogger style challenge (which by the way I'm still shocked I won) and I decided I wanted a white blazer in my life. I woke up one morning and thought yes... I need a white one. Maybe I was possessed by the ghost of Wham! in my sleep, who knows but I knew what I wanted to spend some of my voucher on. I picked one from Topshop and it is SO nice! I love it! Though the material is like jersey which I wasn't expecting, this means that if this gets dirty (which it will at some point) it's going to be a bugger to clean! So with this in mind, I am treating this jacket very carefully! I decided last night that it was time to wap it out and brighten up the grey rainy evening that it was. We went for a meal with my boyfriend's Mum and sister who were down as his sister had a uni interview, I decided I'd had enough of living in jeans/joggers which I have been whilst doing uni work (though rest assured I haven't left the house in joggers, you don't need to disown me just yet.) So I dressed up like I was in the Saturdays, I mean who doesn't secretly wish they were Mollie or Frankie? Who doesn't wish they were in a girl band? I wish I was, imagine the glam life it must be.. the only hiccup is I can't sing. Hmm. Anyways, can you tell I haven't blogged in a while? This post is a right old waffle!

White Blazer: Topshop 
Black Lace Top: Zara
Necklace: River Island
Jeans: ASOS Petite
Boots: Select

Okay so getting to the point, I decided to wear my white blazer with my new black jeans from ASOS which are amazing by the way. I love their petite jeans, they are just the right length for a shortie like me! And my lace black Zara top which is like the most worn item in my wardrobe, it's a staple item as I like to call it. I also wore my Select Ambush Dupe boots (boots in May? Madness) and my big Zara handbag. Now I don't know about you, but if this isn't girl band attire then I don't know what is!! I really liked the outfit and felt really smart! However I know that whenever I wear my white blazer I will be constantly on edge thinking 'aaah don't get dirty!' So yes. There we go, the debut of the white blazer. Thankfully not a cross earring in site. (Wham! Reference there, not Proudlock MIC reference.) Do you own a white blazer? How do you style yours?

So I'd best go before I bore you all to sleep with my waffle. I hope you've all had a good week, if you're like me and in the mist of deadlines hope it's all going well! I may be a little sporadic on posts again now as like I said I have two more deadlines, but I'll blog when I can. But in a week's time it will all be over and I'll be all yours again :) Hope you all have a lovely evening! :)
