Motel, Hotel, Cactus Crush Inn

So Palm Springs, when can I move in? I know the house I'd choose (along with every other blogger babe in this millennium), it's the one with the chocolate box pink door, say no more. I'd wear this outfit for my moving in moment, simply for sizzle and sass factor. As always Motel Rocks are kicking ass with their cactus cool vibe; this Kimmy high waisted skirt matches my cactus crop top, worn in this previous ootd post. The suede sand top had my heart hot, if you're into sandy shores like I then it's worth snatching up this Pitchu fringe crop top, also from Motel, for yo' self. As you know I often talk about escape, of sunnier climates. I'm guessing most fashion bloggers would agree this outfit was made for sunshine and good fun. Just you wait Palm Springs, one day you and me need a hot date! The contrast hat was a sure fire scoop from Missguided way back when. I wore it with this UFO dress and I think it's cool for cacti. 

As I explained earlier this week on Instagram, I'm definitely a free spirited soul. When I was 11 I had visions and notions of living somewhere much like a desert, all hot floors and sand dunes. White washed walls, aqua seas and tropical towns. Only now, I can see the dreams and manifestations of way back then seem to be crystal clear; all those never-ending stories in my head have formed into one: my first book. The daydreams of far out ideas and escapades now serve my fashion blog. And finally, those notions of tropical towns, aqua seas and palm trees: another dream yet to fulfil. 

Graham and I saw Pulp Fiction for the first time at a special screening this week. One of those films I've always wanted to see but never have done. I thought it was pretty good, although Tim Roth- not enough airtime, is it just me or do Pumpkin and Honey Bunny need their own sitcom? John Travolta - too much airtime, same for you, Uma Thurman. Graham and I often argue over who's more badass, he says Samuel L Jackson and I say Wesley Snipes, but I've got to give it up for SLJ being pretty damn funny in that movie. And of course, the bad motherfucker wallet thing kinda goes against my argument.... damn. 

What are you up to this weekend?
I hope you're having a BLAST! XO

Christmas Wish list: Paperchase Paradise

One of my biggest Christmas festive fantasies has always been to stay in a lustful log-cabin and escape, fleeing the frost for fair aisle and hot chocolate, watching snowflakes sugar the windows and get cosy by a roaring, triumphant fireside. For now Pinterest is certainly forming that fantasy. Until then, Paperchase's amazingly alternate take on Christmas decor has made me very happy and heart-eyed indeed - pink flamingos in jolly hats? Dazzling unicorns and all the cactus cute any blogger could dream up? Christmas can often be cliche, so these  trendy twists on decorations have pleased me times a trill. Plus, following babes like sprinkles and sandwiches over on Instagram has made me realise that the holiday can be all the crush-worthy, all the pink pretty, all the unique and wondrous that we want it to be! Bring on the babin'! Therefore, I made this Christmas wish list for all my colourful cuties, here's to a sassier, jazzier holiday season! 

That FLAMINGO tho! Gotta get it girl (so I did). I also had to invest in the pretty Sugarplum Christmas tree, purely the perfect jazzy backdrop for any kind of festive fun. To top off their outrageously hawt holiday collection, Paperchase have also included the likes of unicorns; this flying unicorn money box is a sure fire way to get your other piggy banks shook and stunned. Not forgetting the flamingo theme, these babes would bring sugary sweetness into any home for the holidays. 
Beautiful bold baubles seem to (thankfully) be a thing this year, and this Neon star bauble Christmas Wreath is certainly helping that hotness no end. How bright and babin'? Can imagine it bringing some good vibes to any dull, drizzled street throughout December and beyond. Paperchase have got a variety of eclectic Christmas trees and this Piñata one has to be one of my favourites. I really can't imagine any other high street store radiating so much magic. If you're still after hotter hues, this Pom Pom heart Christmas Wreath and Sequin Piñata hanging decoration make for the most perfect pairing.
Summer souls rejoice, for babes that dream of all things green, Paperchase are also hollering hard towards the cactus and cocktail end of the spectrum. I was totally mesmerised when I saw these glass cactus decorations in the shop display the other week and I love, love, love how they're as far from the usual decor you can expect this time of year. Keeping it traditional, this Christmas desk set still has an uptempo vibe to it. Same goes for this zesty sequin margarita tree decoration (if only it was a mojito and real, but still, pretty close). The straw Sombrero makes for a nice twist away from the usual (done to death) Santa hat. 
Hope you enjoyed this wish list, do let me know if you fancy seeing more of this kinda thing over on soinspo! I definitely had a blast putting this together, my bank balance? Not so bloody much.... 

 Are you a fan of these Paperchase pretties? 
What kind of decorations are you buying this year? 

Ho, Ho, Hollering back to my nearest branch......

Kuccia sequin unicorn mom jeans

Unicorn jeans? Hell yes PLEASE. I seem to be accelerating up an addiction for Topshop jeans, you saw these glittery mermaid jeans in my previous ootd post. Safe to say unicorns are ubiquitous with not only bloggers but this very blog, check out my Unicorn Magic post. I was crushing on a rainbow pair but they sold out (sob) but these unicorn dream jeans appeared and it was l-o-v-e. This pair are from Kuccia; a funky, fun, up my street store rocking all the colour crush. The rainbow blast of forecast is via Motel Rocks. After deliberating for a good few months over the halter crop I bit the bullet and bought it when it came back in stock. If you follow me on Instagram then you'll know I've been crushing on these candyland shades from Rad + Refined all summertime long and the transition is most deff seasonal. Unfortunately being a summer chick isn't much fun when the temperatures hit sub-zero, but freezing my ass off for a tropical fashion forecast is something I'm getting used to sacrificing. 
Graham and I had a lovely get-away to the seaside this week. The climate was choppy and there was a cutting chill in the air but we enjoyed being by the sea and found the sweetest little beach huts. How cute are all the orange hues? A sure fire reminder that there is tropical weather blasting out elsewhere in the world. Things haven't seemed too sunny lately, and because of stresses I've been suffering from lots of tension headaches and bouts of SAD which isn't 100%. I'm finding my attitude and outlook is getting better, instead of wondering what to do and feeling hopeless, I'm trying to find solutions, not setbacks. There's a lot to feel lucky for and it's about looking to the bright rays of light. 


Have you got any nice November plans?
I hope you all have a fab weekend!
