Inspired By Lately…


I’ve been enjoying doing these photos and sharing with you things that I’m inspired by lately. I often see pretty things out and about and things that I love looking at, but I never really thought about sharing them here on my blog, until someone suggested that I did. Hopefully you like these types of posts and enjoy the photos! Please let me know in the comments!

Above is the nail polish and make up section in Topshop. It’s something that I stare at every single time I go in the store because it’s like a beautiful rainbow, filled with sparkles and glitter too! I would love to have a wall like this in my closet, if I had one!


One of my favourite shops in my City of Bath, Hardy’s Original Sweet Shop. It sells all of the old candy and sweets from years ago, in the glass jars which they weigh out on scales. They also have rare candy that you can’t really buy anywhere else!


This is Little SouthGate which is sort of new here, but I have always thought it’s pretty! I love the little fairy lights on the roof and how quaint it is. You can find lots of little boutiques and shops in there!


I hadn’t eaten Hotel Chocolat in ages, so I thought that I would pick some up on the weekend! I had my favourite Raspberry Smoothie (I definitely recommend these) and my boyfriend had the new Passion Fruit Truffles, which he loved!


When I was doing outfit photos on the weekend, the sky was blue and the buildings looked pretty. Everything is really old here so I often think the buildings and sculptures look amazing in the sunlight! It reminds me a lot of Italy, but then Bath was a Roman city.


Lunch at Wagamama’s! They changed the paper table placements, so I thought they looked pretty! I usually have chicken ramen, but this time had yaki soba, without shrimp. It was delicious! What do you eat when you go there?


These were the pretty handmade decorations in my favourite Italian pizza restaurant. They were made out of card and glitter and I loved them! This was on Valentine’s Day, so I couldn’t resist taking a photo.


This was one of the coolest light shades I have ever seen! It was in Giraffe and is made out of book pages, you can still see the writing on the pages!


After all of the horrible and stormy weather we have been getting lately, the sun decided to show and make a beautiful sunset. Times like these make me smile as I love the summer and that’s what it reminds me of. So pretty!


Home made vegetable soup by my mum! It’s the best! I love eating this as it’s so nutritious and colourful, plus it tastes absolutely delicious!


And of course, my galaxy print Pull & Bear shoes! I’ve been wearing them all the time and they definitely inspire me to smile after going through some really tough times at the moment, unfortunately. I’m definitely in need of a break. What’s inspiring you lately?

    Looks like your Mum’s homemade soup is one of the most delicious dishes to come home to! Bath’s such a beautiful city it’s so inspiring in itself.

    Hey Lorna just made a new Hunter Wellies purchase! I bought 2 pairs that should be arriving in a week or two!

    The short white ones were too cute to pass up and the british wellies will look great with my forest green british flag polo from ralph lauren. Also bought this dress on sale, you should check out the sites sale they have some beautiful dresses!

      Great wellies purchases! Love the flag ones! That’s a very pretty dress too! I’m just not into dresses like that for myself, they aren’t really my style!

    Thanks i like the short white wellies a lot more than the talls. Thanks for the dress compliment, i know they arent but i figure youd appreciate a sale as much as the next person. Its styled a lot like my red sailor dress but with a heavier material and less costumey. I plan to hem it with the skirt reaching just over the knees so its wearable with boots, especially my black wellies!

      That sounds cool! I do appreciate sales of course, but generally only on the items I want lol.

Thanks for your comments =) I read & reply every one =)
