Life over the past few weeks

Instagram is definitely one of my favourite apps just now, browsing through photos from all over the world is so addictive! I thought i'd share with you a few of my favourite snaps from life over the past couple of weeks.

 My user name is nicola_claire if you want to follow me :) -my photos generally consist of clothes, pretty skys or partying.

I have new things to show you this weekend but first I need to get my Coursework out of the way! I've decided i'm not going to bed until its done... I'll let you know how that works out! haha

Lots of Love

Hi Everyone.

Just wanted to show you this skirt from Zara, (I KNOW something else from Zara, its not my fault they are so bang on this season, i cant help it!) I love the Hawaiian print and the unique cut of this skirt, I cant wait to wear it more in the Summer :).

I've had a lot of you asking about the bag in my last post from Zara, I got it last season so i'm not sure if you'll still be able to buy it with their speedy stock turn around but if i see it come back into stock or a similar one else where you guys will be the first to know!! Promise.

Anyways, Just a quick post for you guys tonight because I better get back on the books...  :(

Lovely Sally

Leggings- LovelySally. Vest- Topshop Boutique. Bag- Zara. Jacket -Vintage . Necklace- Topshop

I absolutely love these leggings! I was lucky enough to receive them from Lovely Sally yesterday and reckon they might be my most anticipated delivery to date. I picked out this design straight off because it reminded me of the horse i used to have when i was younger. Ive always been fascinated by horses and in particular grey horses- i find them absolutely stunning.

As i was browsing through Lovely Sally's  lookbook i saw so many designs that you guys might be interested it! Lovely Sally are based in Italy so are quite a local company for UK shipping and luckily they will be available to purchase in a few weeks time.

Hope you are having a good weekend and treating your Mums today :)

Pretty iPad Case Pschedelic

Shirt- Zara. Trousers- ASOS. iPad case c/o- Capulet London. Bracelet- Boozt. Necklace- Topshop

Dress- NewLook. Bag- Zara
Helloooo everyone,

I know you've seen them before but this shirt and these trousers are probably two of my favourite items just now so why not mix them up and incorporate the sports luxe and pyjama separates trend into one!?

Ive worn them with this iPad case from Capulet London which i absolutely LOVE. The quality of it is amazing and the suede orange interior is stunning, here it is all close up and pretty.

Like i said before, Capulet is a slightly more expensive brand but would definitely make a good gift for someone!

I also wanted to show you guys this little dress/top from New Look that i got last week, it makes me feel all psychedelic AND furthermore! it is another multifunctional item- I like to justify.

One more thing! Ive been getting a few e-mails asking about Uni courses or career advise, so i thought i'd point you in the direction of this graduate scheme for a Scotland based advertising agency! Its not necissarily Fashion based but they run a few very high profile advertsing campaigns and any experience is good experience!

All you need to do is fill out a test online and if they like what you say you'll get an interview and then if you're sucessful there you'll get the placement! Easy. To find out more and fill out the test visit here

You can also follow the hotdesk on twitter here and also be the friend of this hot inanimate object on Facebook here. :)

Hope this helps some of you out.

AH so many words all at once. sorrrryyy.

Yellow Scarf

Jacket- Vintage. Scarf- Zara. Skirt- H&M. Bag- Vintage. Vest- c/o Boozt. Bracelet- Boozt. Necklace- Topshop


Just a quick post today to show you my favourite new scarf from Zara. Its such a nice colour and lightweight fabric and just seems to go with everything i wear these days, Ive barely taken it off :)

I've also been looking for a vest with a low back like this for aaaages and eventually found one on, so I had to get it in white too because you cant beat a good basic!

Oh and before I forget, Zara just brought out a similar version of the white structured shoulder top I had on in a couple of posts back (here). A few of you were saying you wish you'd bought one before they sold out last time so now's your chance :)

Hope you've all had a good weekend. I've been stressing a bit a bout Uni work.... its not long now until i have to hand my first draft of my dissertation in! AH . ah. aaaaaaaaaaaaah.

Side Stripe

Jacket- Zara . Trousers- Zara. T-shirt- AllSaints . Shoes - Topshop. Bag- Zara . Cuff- ASOS

Bracelet-c/o Boozt . Top- Zara
As you can tell I've got a bit of a thing for side striped trousers just now, I'm blaming Sporty Spice for this one- she really knew how to work the Adidas tracksuit bottom.

I just love the tux come sport trouser effect of these you could wear them either way and they're definitely the comfiest pair of trousers I own right now, amazing for wearing to Uni and easy to smarten up for the office too! Mutlifunctional.

I also wanted to show you my new favourite bracelet which i bought here, Ive barely taken it off since i got it -although I wish i'd bought it in black too!

Happy Friiiiiday mothertruckers.

Hi Again

Shirt- Zara. Skirt- H&M. Bag- Zara. Necklace- Topshop
Hi Guys,

First off I want to show you my new Bag from Zara, Ive been looking for a new bag for aaages and had'nt come across any I liked until now. I am quite aware that this is an oversized clutch with a strap but im definitely going to be using it as an everyday bag too- I love it that much ! (I need to stop carrying around so much crap with me anyways).

I also bought this blouse from Zara the other day, I don't know if you can make it out in these pictures but the print is made up of lots of little leopard heads :) My mum wants me to get her one too... but we will see about that!

Sorry for the couple of days out! Its been a very stressful and overwhelming week but thank-you for all of the support :)

Luxe and Lace

Trousers- ASOS. Jacket- Vintage. T-shirt- H&M. Bag- Zara
Dress- c/o Lavish Alice. Necklace- Topshop. Clutch- ASOS

Hi Guys,

Ive got two outfits to show you today !

Firstly I neeeded to show you these trousers from ASOS that I bought the other week, Ive been getting so much wear out of them. I cant get enough of the sports luxe trend, its definitely one of my favourites this season. To avoid looking like I'm actually about to hit the treadmill I've worn them with a biker jacket and my platformed shoes from Topshop (It didn't stop the guy at the petrol station asking if I'd just been to the gym though....haha!).

I also wanted to show you this dress that I picked out from Lavish Alice the other day. I was drawn to it straight away which is strange as I'm not usually a huge fan of lace but I think I'm slowly being converted! I really like the style of it and like my paisley shorts from Lavish Alice, this dress fits amazingly which is always a worry with buying online.

I did a spot of shopping yesterday too so have some pretty new things to show you all this week as well as a make up post!

 Hope you've had a nice weekend :)
