The Fifth Label

Sweatshirt- The Fifth Label c/o Urban Outfitters, Skirt- c/o Urban Outfitters, Shoes- ASOS, Sunglasses- c/o Red Hot Sunglasses

Howdy folks, how are we all? Anyone else absolutely MELTING in this insane, freak heat wave? I simply cannot hack it. Thankfully I'm jetting off to Istanbul tomorrow, which, granted will be even hotter but at least they have pools, beaches and you can walk around half naked at a hotel.

Anyway, this skirt, I know, has been surgically attached to my body since it arrived a few weeks back. I just simply cannot get enough of it, it's my dream denim wash, the fit is awesome and those super cute pockets melt my heart every time I see them, so yeah, there's my justification for wearing it ALL THE FREAKING TIME!
It is the perfect piece to team with literally errrthang, but best when teamed with stripes dontcha think?

This lil striped baby is by the latest Aussie brand on my radar The Fifth Label; I've heard a wee bit here and there about these guys and I'm absolutely digging each and every collection they launch. The latest The Fifth Label at Urban Outfitters collection is simply gorgeous, super minimal yet with really cool prints and pieces that have got me coming over in hot sweats.
Cool prints and pieces aside, naturally I went for my good ole fave stripes... Honestly my striped collection is getting a bit out of hand.

Yes, I'm away from tomorrow but fear not there are lots of posts coming your way and there is always Instagram right?

Thessaloniki Gastro Tour: #BlogTrottersGR

Oh HEY, we're back with day two of our BlogTrotters trip to Thessaloniki, do check out my first post all about the gorgeous lil city right here.
Similarly to day one, day two was again spent exploring! We were up bright and early and treated to a tour of the city... But not just any tour... A gastro tour, my tummy is rumbling at the sheer thought of it.

The weather today was somewhat cloudy, which, at first was a seriously devastating blow, but what quickly turned out to be a god send as we were exploring the city for the entire day and the cooler weather was definitely needed.

The windy streets of Thessaloniki are laced with the most delicious of restaurants, cafes, specialist food shops and stalls with both the smells and colours accompanying them perfectly.
Wandering on through the streets of Thessaloniki, it was, again, seriously hard not to fall in love with the place. The colours, the architecture and the sheer charm of the place were simply astounding.

Popping into cafes, shops, and market stalls, sampling the fine food and meeting the locals it was definitely one of the highlights of my trip.
We were shown around by Thessaloniki walking tours and they were awesome for truly showing off Thessaloniki and it's foody vibe to a T.

One of the true highlights of the day was meeting this geezer. He had worked on this stand since he was a teenager, where it started as a humble watermelon shop and had now transformed itself into one of Thessaloniki's most loved shops, specialising in all things Greek.
We were shown photographs of him way back when the stand first started (see 5th image down) which well and truly melted my little heart, that and the fact he served us Ouzo at 11am in the morning, he is my kinda lad!


So that's it for day two, we of course went out afterwards for some scrummy dinner and delicious drinks as our little gastro tour experience really allowed us 45 bloggers to bond in the most amazing way. You can see just Hayley & Javi above, but the awesome people I met on this trip truly made the experience what it was, but more of that in my third and final post.

Stay tuned.

Blur @ British Summer Time Festival with Levi's

Jacket- c/o Levi's, Sunglasses- Ray Ban c/o Red Hot SunglassesTshirt, Skirt & Bag- c/o Urban Outfitters, Trainers- Converse

How gorgeous are these shots? My babe Amber Rose did good didn't she ey!
These shots were taken on Saturday at British Summer Time where I hopped straight into a cab from Heathrow airport to join mega babes Kim, Sarah & Fenn at BST with the cool dudes at Levi's.
Customised jackets in tow, we headed down to Hyde Park for some serious festival fun.
I mean just look at it; my very own Monogrammed denim Trucker jacket, I am beyond buzzing with it, the girls did good with the wash too, indigo denim is my all time fave!

As I'm sure you guys already know from the amazing coverage that bloggers such as InTheFrow & Patricia Bright have created, Levi's have gone all out this summer with their Tailor Shop.
Customers can pop in to store and have their Levi's denim pieces completely customised to their taste. From alterations, rips & frays along with super cool little touches like patches and monogramming, you can literally create the denim piece of your dreams.
I'm already planning my visit into store to add some further patches to my Trucker.

To celebrate the Tailor Shop, Levi's invited us down to BST to watch BLURRRRRR! A band I have ALWAYS wanted to see live and oh how they did not disappoint.

It was such a fun evening spent, in typical British summer time style, dancing in the rain and listening to some awesome British acts.
I had the best time and can't thank the girlies and Levi's enough!

ASOS Desk Vibes.

Pineapple case & Unicorn Case (sold out)- Claires Accessories, Diary- Filofax, Ear Phones- c/o Happy Plugs
Clutch- c/o Pauls Boutique, Diary- Filofax

As you all know by now, I work at ASOS... and, if you lot are anything like me, then you love a good nosey so I though I'd show you where I spend the majority of my time. Say HELLOOOO to my desk.

So, what does this say about me? Well, I'm obsessed with all things novelty ( I mean duhhh) and any space that is my space is always a fun space. I love pimping out my desk space adding a little bit of personality to what could be a pretty darn dull place to spend the day.

The must have bits;
- The ULTIMATE phonecase(s): Both from Claires Accessories, you can get the pineapple right here but unfortunately the unicorn is now sold out, nbut I'm eyeing up this lil cutie and this bad boy next.

- I am all about a photo-op so photo booth shots and polaroids litter my desk space giving me mega LOLz every time I look at them.

- I'd be completely LOST at work without my Happy Plugs headphones; music gets me through the day and I mean, they're rose gold, whats not to love?

- I mean, everyone needs a blow up crown, right? Yup, thought so!

- Twitter mug, keeno!

- And finally, I am obsessed with this Paul's Boutique neon clutch bag. The perfect piece to throw in all my day to day office essentials, who knows where my ASOS pass would have ended up without it.

So there we have it, really hope you enjoyed a lil snoop into my desk area at work, if you'd like to see some more sneak peeks into ASOS HQ then do let me know in the comments below.
