Inspirations: 11/01/2012

I've had so much fun putting together little inspiration boards these last few weeks, so I thought I'd make it into a regular feature. I've also become really obsessed with spending hours on Pinterest (You can follow my pins here) and making collages on Picasa.

Here's what's been inspiring me this week:


1. One of my favourite things to wear is Plaid. I live in it throughout the year and love how it's styled here, with the leather jacket and ripped jeans. I bought a similar pair of jeans from H&M, but sadly the fitting is atrocious, so they have to go back. 
2. I love this nude look. I attempted nude over the summer and can't wait to get out my nude heels and dresses again. I think this girl looks fantastic. I love the hat and shoes.
3. My main New Years Resolution is learning how to cook. I can make pasta and eggs, but I really need to learn how to cook proper food. Any tips?
4. For those of you who don't know, I used to do some boxing a few years ago. I absolutely loved doing it and I'm dying to take it up again this year. I'm just looking for the perfect gym/class to get started again. I still have my bright pink boxing gloves!
5. My blogger BFF Susie is visiting tomorrow, so I'm looking forward to a lot of fun with her. Nothing compares to the fun and laughter of hanging out with good friends.
6. Fashion Week is exactly one month away and I'm slowly bracing myself for the madness. I have a few shows sorted at the moment and a certain someone managed FROW at a certain big show! Not going to jinx it yet :)
7. I want to be more experimental with my make up and this look is perfect. The pink lipstick and perfectly done coloured eyeliner is making me itch to play around with my make up more. And as we all know, I LOVE eyeliner.
8. It's been raining a lot in London, and I'm not letting it get me down. In fact, I'm enjoying it as much as I can. Once you stop caring that it ruins your hair, there is endless fun to have in the rain.
9. The new sitcom, New Girl, has just started in the UK, and I'm absolutely hooked. I've loved Zooey Deschanel since her 'Tin Man' days and have loved everything she's done since then. She's gorgeous and has such amazing style. She's hilarious in New Girl!
10. You'll remember I went rowing last year, and had so much fun, that I want to get on the water again. Nothing so vigorous, but I can't wait for it to get warmer so I can go on the boats at Regents and Hyde Park for a casual, easy going row.
11. I have so much love for Lana Del Rey. Ever since I heard Video Games a few months ago, I've been such a fun of her music. Born To Die was just as amazing and I'm super excited to get my hands on the album later on next month.
12. I mentioned wanting to incorporate more sequins in my life earlier this week, and this picture makes me want to do it so much more! I'm inspired to buy more sequins and work them into my everyday wardrobe in a casual way.

What's been inspiring you this week?

That eyeliner is awesome! Nothing much has inspiring me this week, I've been so tired that not much thought has gone into my work outfits yet! I have been listening to lots of good music this week though which inspired me to buy a rather expensive set of headphones so that I can listen to my iPod again!

p.s. you look rather excited on that brass Lion statue below..

As for cooking, I have a suggestion. BLOGS. There are so many blogs out there for beginning to WAY advanced cooking and I'd just find one that fits.

Lizzy said...

Hehe, I can just imagine you with bright pink boxing gloves! You should definitely take it up again. I've been loving "New Girl" as well, and am quite tempted to make my housemates contribute to a 'douchebag jar'!

I love plaids too! I wonder what´s the brand of that pink blusher used on the model, I´m still experimenting on my makeup and I just can´t find the right blush color for me.
