My favourite items from Zara's new season collection

That's it- Zara is officially, hands down my favourite high-street store. It's been gradually getting there for months but, with this latest collection exceeding all anticipation and expectation, it has finally made it to that coveted number one spot. And here is why....

What dreams are made of...

The most exciting moment of my week came when I received my weekly LOOK magazine e-newsletter on Tuesday informing me that Zara's new collection had arrived and that the exclusive pictures were just a click away! (or a slide away on my i phone's touch screen!) Gorgeous, amazing, gorgeous were the words going through my head as I flicked through until I reached this absolute beauty which actually made my chest ache with love for it! Deemed one of the season's hottest trends by Vogue's, Calgany Avansino, leather look is combined with a half cotton blazer to create this stunning masterpiece of highstreet genius. Now, I just have to find a way to afford it!

Traffic Cop Yellow

Fluorescent colours have hit the stores hard recently and shops like H&M are definitely embracing this trend with a wide range of bold and beautiful colours on offer. Admittedly, I'm not the most daring of people when it comes to colour, although I have expanded my wardrobe colour palette quite considerably over the last six months having realised it was looking rather monochrome. However, one bold colour which I am coming to love is fluorescent yellow- Yes, I'm talking the lollypop lady, traffic officer kind. When I hit the much anticipated Zara Sale last week, a luminous yellow silk t-shirt called out to me from the Sale rail with its reduced label and slightly make-up stained collar- I just had to have it. This 'have to have it' feeling also came over me when I was in H&M on Monday having an innocent gander and I saw this fluorescent yellow blazer. I clearly have a type...

New blog feature- My week in pictures

I know lots of other bloggers do this and I don't want to seem like a copy-cat but I just think it's a great way to give your followers an insight into your every-day life and your lifestyle. I really want to start taking blogging more seriously, writing posts more often and hopefully, as a result, gaining more followers so I'm getting ahead of myself and starting this as a weekly feature to encourage myself to post regularly and to be more interactive with my blog. From where I go, what I do, what I buy to what I eat, things I see and things I love, this will hopefully give you a good idea of what makes me me! Underneath the collage I will give a little explanation of the pics. Enjoy!

1. Dinner at Tramp
2. Belinis at Tramp
3.Dreaming of Louboutins on my lunch-break
4. New Zara shoes.. swoooon

I'm in love..

Just had to do a quick blogpost about my new shoes! Zara has well and truly established itself as my favourite high-street shop now and it seems everyone is agreeing! LOOK mag had a whole 2 page spread this week on how many celebrities, from the Saturdays to fashion icon, Olivia Palermo, just can't get enough of it! Frankie and Vanessa were even spotted wearing the exact same Zara jacket at the Radio 1 studios last week! Fail! Anyway, I will stop raving and leave you with a picture of my gorgeous new set of electric blue strappy sandals, which only set me back a reasonable £39.99, along with some pics to show how Zara mania really is taking hold!

my new shoes! :)


Olivia Palermo carrying the Zara tote which has been seen on the arm of many a celeb recently!

Mollie King in a gorgeous nude Zara blazer which I want!

I actually have this gorgeous pastel yellow blazer! I know, get me! ;)

And the Made in Chelsea girls lurrrve this bright yellow beauty! Look how many of them have worn it on the show!

So there's the evidence- Everyone's gone raving mad for Zara!

Having an ebay clear-out

Hey Guys! I'm getting rid of a few things on ebay at the moment and thought I would let you all know first so that you could have a go at bidding! Amongst the 10 or so items I am selling is this great sleeveless, lace-detail shirt dress from Urban Outfitters. The buttoned up shirt look is so in at the moment and I think this would be a really great buy for anyone. It cost me a bomb and I've hardly worn it (not for lack of love for it) so it's a greatly reduced bargain! I've listed it under Urban Outfitter cream lace detail dress, size m/10 if you want to take a look and my ebay profile name is keexix if you want to take a peek at any of the other items I've got listed.
