Decisions Decisions

Hey everyone :)
I hope you have all had a great week, mines gone so fast, and I have to say I am shattered. I am so excited to have the day off tomorrow to just chill out and refresh! I'm guna have a massive lie in, and going to have a clear out of my room etc. 
This weekend is my mums birthday and I went a bit mad in Lush and brought her some lovely smelling stuff as well as treating myself to some things (obviously.)

I don't know if any of you saw my Christmas Wishlist's but on one of them (click here too see) was a Pandora watch. I got some money for Christmas which I have saved to be put towards buying it... but I have a dilemma!? I went into Pandora the other day, all ready and set to buy the one I wanted which had a black leather strap... and I saw one in the same design but in silver. I was totally blown, I love the silver one too.
I wear a lot of silver jewellery, but then I guess the one with the leather strap would be for more day to day use... I really would love your opinions. 

Both Watches - Pandora
Price - £215

I really would love your feedback on which one to buy.

Weekly Want #3

So Tuesday has arrived again and so this also means my weekly want is published! I have to admit I find it so so hard to cut it down to just 2 items every week, obviously there is loads of things I could put on here, but I think that if there is any more than 2 it would just simply get out of hand! I also try to mix up the websites that I look through just so there is different type of products each week.

I hope your week if getting off to a cracking start - would love to hear what any of you are up to :)

Dress - Topshop
Price - £38.00

I saw this dress on Topshop's website and actually went back twice too look at it before I even decided I liked it. The pattern isn't really very me, but I think it would look great with a pair of chelsea boots, my bowler hat and a leather jacket. Not a bad price either.

Bag - Zara
Price - £19.99 (was £39.99)

Let me know your thoughts and opinions as always :)
Thanks for reading.

New Purchases

Heya everyone. First of all I have to apologise. I'm not great when it comes to technology, and I did this post by mobile on Friday as the internet in my house was playing up. Its only when I looked at it now that I've realised that there is only pictures and no writing! Don't know how that happened, sorry to all of you who were thinking my post was a bit bare.

So as I'm sure you are all aware I got paid on Friday and went on a little shopping trip! This is what I brought;

I'm going to do some outfit shots this week so you will get to see what most of it looks like on, rather than just folded in a pile on my bed!

When I saw these shoes in H&M I was so happy, I loved the colour and the style, and they were an absolute bargain! 

Shoes - H&M
Price - £7.00

I'd had my eye on this cute blouse for ages. It just think it would look great with the collar out under a jumper or even tucked into a skirt. 

Blouse - Topshop
Price - £38.00

So I went a bit mad on the Topshop blouses/shirts! Believe it or not, I had 5 which I tried on but had to cut it down to just 2! I know polka dots will always be in fashion, but this season in particular the monochrome trend seems to be pretty big. So I defiantly thought it would be worth the investment.

Shirt - Topshop
Price - £38.00

I love the Jumpers in H&M - I own way too many! They are so easy to wear, and such good quality for the price you pay. I loved this baby blue colour, I thought it would be great for the lead up to spring.

Jumper - H&M
Price - £14.99

So I had to make a trip to my local Asda to get some food shopping, obviously you don't want to know the contents of my whole trolley there - but I thought I would share these few products I brought. All of Asda's nail varnishes are £1! Literally such a good price, I've brought some from there before, and they are great. I also needed some lashes for my friends birthday, and these were under £3!

Where From? - Asda
Lashes - Under £3 (can't remember exactly)
Nail Varnishes - £1 each

Thank you all for reading. As always I would love to know your opinions :) 
Apologies again for my technology dilemma - Don't quite know what happened!

Moans, Groans and Loans

So my week has dragged like an unbelievable amount, I don't know about any of you but even though Friday is tomorrow it still feels like its a milestone away.
Although I'm super excited... Because its PAYDAY! Woooo! I'm going to go shopping and I have the most massive list of things I want to buy, including a Pandora Watch, I don't know if any of you read my first Christmas Wish list (click here too see) but its the watch on there. I got given some money for Christmas which I kept aside until payday when I could afford the rest of it... I've been watch-less for over a year now so I think its time to invest in a new one! Although I have borrowed lots of money this month off the bank of Mother... so my first priority is to pay her back :( boo!

I am just updating you with a few Instagram (follow emmageorge_) snaps from my week. I am going to do a post tomorrow on all the lovely things I buy! Cannot wait!

I ordered this shirt of Topman last week - I literally think it is BEAutiful! I love the flowers on it so just had to buy it. It was only £30, which is actually cheaper than most of the shirts/blouses on Topshop! I ordered a size XS and a S, just because I didn't know what size I'd be, and obviously the shirt is made for a man - not a woman! In the end I kept the Small, although its a little big. But it means that my boyfriend can wear it too! I am going to make him get involved in a Outfit of the Day shoot next week sometime to picture both me and him wearing it! Should be interesting to see how both of us would style it.

I have been watching the Great British Bake Off for Red Nose Day all week so it inspired me and my mum to do some baking - she baked - I decorated! I used plain butter icing and topped with left over christmas chocolate!

I went to Pizza Express yesterday and every time I go there without fail I have one of their amazing banoffe pies! If you haven't tried one before - I'm telling you now you really must :) In fact I am just generally I big fan of Pizza Express, they recognise me every time I go there! I tend to go there on a Wednesday normally because the main couses are BOGOF (buy one get one free!) as well as their dough balls! Yummy! Orange Wednesdays are the best! 

I feel like this is quite an embarrassing photo to post on here... purely because I am pouting! I never pout...but it just seemed quite right for the photo. I brought these Elton John style sunglasses off Ebay at the beginning of January and they arrived today! I'd actually forgotten I had brought them because the shipping had taken so long from across the world! But the postage was free, and they cost me £1.38! So so cheap, they are available in different colours as well - click here to buy.

As always I love hearing your comments and opinions :)
Thank you for reading.


P.S - To you students out there.... There is 25% student discount at ASOS now, and 20% student discount at Topman. Happy Shopping!

Weekly Want #2

Hello all!
Its that time of the week again...For my this weeks 'weekly want' its a bit of an odd selection. I have chosen things I wouldn't normally go for. 

I was browsing around on ASOS the other day, and came across this dress from Motel, I have to say I am not big fan of Motel, some of their clothing is too popular, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. However its that situation where you buy something from there and go out to see about 30 other people wearing it at the same time! 
But when I saw this dress I thought it didn't look very Motel. Obviously I would have to try it on to give a better opinion but it looks like I would fit quite nicely, not too tight but still has shape. The pattern is quite unique, and think it would look great with a bowler hat, some tights and a pair of Chelsea boots.

Dress - Motel (from ASOS)
Price - £35

Now you may think I am being quite ridiculous having a BIKINI on my weekly want in JANUARY when there is still SNOW outside my window.... (Reading that back makes it sound even more stupid!) BUT I have been looking at holidays with my boyfriend recently, we are like almost 100% set we are going to go to Morocco and Marrakech, in the North of Africa. We haven't booked the holiday yet but are going to within the next month I think. 

Anyway I saw this bikini online and in my Topshop store the other day, and I just think that the ditsy floral is so cute. The colour of the bikini would look great with a tan. 
I'm still trying to justify buying it this early on in the year, but I know that come the time I want to go away there will just be no bikini's I like.

Bikini - Topshop
Price - £30

Would love to know what you all think of my 'weekly wants' this week. As pay day is literally in touching distance (Friday!! WOOO!!) I will defiantly be going on a shop this weekend so will inform you all of what I buy :)

Thanks for reading.

It was so fun dressing up, and everyone looked great. My boyfriend dressed up a one of the Jackson 5. Other people were a sailor, school girl, copper, andy from Little Britain, a cowboy, a teacher and a greek goddess.

Blazer - Republic (sisters)
Top - Primark
Shorts - Topshop
Shoes - Jeffrey Campbell
Glasses - Ebay

Would love to know your thoughts on my outfit as always! Or if any of you have dressed up recently.

Thanks for reading.

Florals, Food and Friends

I don't know why I have decided to blog so late at night, when I am literally shattered (explains in advance if there a numerous of spelling mistakes in this post!) I feel like I could sleep all day if/when I find a free day!

So I worked all day today, then went for dinner with a friend. I went to the most amazing little tapas bar on Stokes Croft in Bristol, the food was so nice. Me or my friend had never been there before, and I love trying new places. I'm a massive fan of tapas too and I will defiantly be going back.

This weekend I am going out dressed as Lady GaGa! It's a friends birthday and he's made up the theme of your initials, so my initials are E.G so I have to go as something beginning with either E or G (pretty self explanatory!) The only things I could think of for E were egg, elephant, elf, egyptian and I didn't want to dress up as any of those! So I've decided to be Lady GaGa! I've borrowed a wig off a friend, and brought some glasses off Ebay, so I'm pretty excited... pictures will be posted! I'm sure that over the weekend my whole instagram will be GaGa mad - if you don't follow me already and would like to its emmageorge_

Trousers - Topshop
Shoes - Primark

Comments/Opinions please... also I am loving all the lovely comments I am getting, and the new blogs I've been finding out about. Really makes my day - so please keep them coming :)

Thank you,

Weekly Want #1

As many of my followers and readers will know I haven't even been blogging for even 3 months yet... My first post was the 12th of November 2012 (click here to see!) So all the time I think of new ideas for my blog, and things I can share with all of you.

I have decided that every week on a Tuesday I am going to post 2 items which I want (hence being called the weekly want!)
This weeks weekly want is from H&M and Topshop.

Trousers - H&M
Price - £14.99

Coat - Topshop
Price - £75

I think the coat and trousers would go so well together, with a cute blouse. I've tried on this coat so many times, I think when I get paid at the end of the month I am going to have to buy it! What are your thoughts?

Would love to know your opinions as always. If any of you post weekly/daily wants, I'd love to see!

Topshop Spree

Hello Everyone! 
I'm trusting you all had a lovely weekend, two words to describe mine; Broke and Hungover. I think after working, going out Friday and Saturday night and attending two 21st birthday parties the weekend has fully caught up with me. I'm making this a fairly short post purely because I NEED TO SLEEP! But I must say thank you to the massive response that I had from my new style study post (click here to see) I'm so glad you liked it, and am defiantly going to continue it in the future.

Right back to my post... On Friday I had the day of work and managed to go on a big shop! (yayyy!) I actually only went to Topshop and H&M, before I told myself I had spent too much and needed to leave before I got into a mess in Zara! I will be doing a post later in the week about my H&M buys but till then its just my Topshop Spree today.

This is what I brought;

2 x Topshop Lipsticks 
Rumour Has It - I saw the colour of this and thought its quite a subtle colour to wear during the day, but yet it has a hint of shine.
Hazard - I brought this one to replace my one I lost on a night out over Christmas. Its such a bold red, it makes any outfit stand out.

Grey Topshop Tote Bag
I have wanted this bag for such a long time, I saw it in London when I was there around New Year and was gutted I didn't buy it then. I tried to buy it online, but they didn't have it :( I thought it was gone forever! So I'm sure you can tell how excited I was that its now finally mine!

Topshop Oversized Jersey Dress
I saw this dress and didn't think much of it (as you can tell the photos don't do it much justice either!) and I didn't pick it up to try it on. It was only when I was in the fitting room that I saw this girl with it on, she made it look so good, so on the way out I picked one up. I think it will look great with a color, or chunky jewellery and a belt or some sort.

Topshop Floral Overload Top
When I saw this Top I just jumped out to me straight away, I love all the flowers and I think its a very 'me' top. Can tell this one is going to get plenty of use :)

Topshop Leather Skirt
I had a seen a few of the girls at my Topshop wearing this skirt, but sadly there was none left in my size in our store, so was so happy when they had my size. I think its a great skirt, and could be worn during the day or at night.

I would love to know what you think of my new purchases :) and hear what you have all been up too. 

Thank you for reading.
