Huge River Island Haul! | December 2013

Hello m'fellow Trustinvoguers and newbies! I apologize for the sheer lack of posts this month, as there's been the crazy Christmas hectic schedule, and not only that, I was silly and left my DSLR Camera up in Newcastle (uni). However, next week I shall have it back and will (fingers crossed) be blogging more frequently like I used to! Anyway, today I've got a Youtube video for you guys - it's my HUGE River Island Haul. As you may all know, I absolutely LOVE River Island (and I'm not being biased just because I work there!). I hope you enjoy it, and please don't forget to 'thumbs up' if you liked it, and Subscribe!! Thank you.


You can check out what I bought from www.riverisland.com
What do you guys think to what I purchased?
As always, let me know!
Lots of love, Hannah xoxo

Christmas Outfit! | Favourite Purchase Of December

Hello m'fellow Trustinvoguers and newbies! I wanted to share with you my most favourite purchase of the month. That is, these GORGEOUS embellished, sparkly shorts from River Island. I feel really lucky to actually get my hands on this, as it almost sold out immediately. I only managed to get it as I work there, and staff are allowed to put items on hold for the day. Yippee! It was £40, however it recently went down to a promo price of £25 - amazing! I think these beautiful shorts are just perfect to pair with some warm tights and boots, perfect for Christmas Day or even New Years Eve.        


I actually wore these shorts on a night out with the Fashion girls from my Uni Course, and everyone actually complimented them! That shows something eh?! I can fully say that I'm absolutely in love with them, and totally glad that I bought them, a definite good purchase! I really like how it isn't just plain black beads and sequins, it has a subtle mixture of blue and black - and it looks really lovely together. Not only that, they're also slightly high-waisted, which I love as it makes them comfier and hugs your figure in all the right places.

Here are a few images of me wearing them!


shameless selfies with a bottle of rose! haha


 I can't see it online anymore, however it should still be available in store whilst stocks last. These gorgeous embellished shorts with beads and sequins are £25 if you get your hands on them! As I said, PERFECT for Christmas Day or New Years Eve. I paired the shorts with a simple black, slouchy top. As there was so much going on, on the bottom half of what I was wearing, I needed to make it plain and pull it all together on top. Hence the plain black top! I also added my watch from BornPretty.com, and a few odd rings from none other than good old Primark.  

What do you think to these shorts?
As always, let me know!
Lots of love, Hannah xoxo

University Work | Fashion Installation

Hello m'fellow Trustinvoguers and newbies! Today I've opted for a different kind of post from my usual fashion/beauty side of things. Seeing as i've been frequently apologizing over the last couple of months due to the sheer amount of Uni work that i've had, I thought why not share a small part of that with you guys! 
One of my courses 'modules' is to create a fashion installation, and decide where you would have it, and what the visitor experience of that particular installation would be like. Not only that, you had to choose from a list of brands, from Chanel, Lego, Levis, and more. I decided to challenge myself a little bit, and so I went with Barbie. I then went on to create my completely original idea of a Barbie Installation. I almost knew what I wanted to do immediately, and after a lot of thought process and planning, this is what I came up with.



 I liked the idea of mixing physical barbies, with digital print together - instead of using barbie heads on the corset area. I think this gave off a much, much better effect. Poundland Barbie's are a lifesaver! ;)


I also used a measuring tape from the local town market in Newcastle for around 50p, which wasn't bad at all really. This completed the look of my 'Barbie Mannequin', as it acted as the belt around the waistline. My general idea was all about the Controversy of Barbie, and how it has changed over time with its proportions of the doll and how it has been altered and developed. 



 What do you guys think to my Barbie Installation?
As always, let me know!
Lots of love,
Hannah xoxo

Christmas Stocking Fillers Under £15

Hello m'fellow Trustinvoguers and newbies! Apologies for the lack in posts, I've been absolutely overloaded with uni work, but now i'm home for Christmas and have some free time to post! Yay! Today's post will be the Christmas Stocking Fillers for Under £15 - for him and her! (phew, that was a mouthful). It's just a cheap and easy way to top up gifts for someone, be it your girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, husband, mum, dad, sister or brother. I will be picking out my favourite, and ultimate stores for Christmas shopping, especially in terms of gifts for under £15. This can be anything from chocolate, a personalized gift or socks. The possibilities endless! 

TKMAXX

Brilliant one for Christmas, or any other time of the year for that matter. TKMaxx offers great gift ideas for both him and her, offering a wide variety of products, such as fun jokey stuff, branded items, and much more. They also offer gifts sectioned into different budgets, with gifts under £10, under £20 and over £20. Below I picked out an item each from TK, for Him and Her.

EcoTools Brushes Kit - £4.99. That is AMAZING. My mum actually bought this today with me, the reason why the price in TKmaxx is ridicuously good, is that usually Ecotools costs about £10-15. Crazy! But it also makes a fabulous gift for your misses stocking. I know I would love something like this!

Calvin Klein Boxers - £8.99.  Calvin Klein boxers. You can't really go wrong with a gift like this can you? Every man loves a good pair of undies, especially when it's these bad boys! I bought my boyfriend a pair last year for Christmas, and he absoluetly loved the idea. In his own words, he said "I love getting gifts like these, because people forget the basics that I need, and as a guy I can't be bothered shopping for stuff like that". Men eh! This is why Men's underwear is a good idea, you can also choose from Giorgio Armani, Pringle, Tommy Hilfiger, Ted Baker and more at TkMaxx.

SUPERDRUG/BOOTS


Ted Baker W EDT 75mlFerrari Red 75ml EDT & 150ml Shower Gel Gift Set

Ted Baker Eau De Toilette For Her - £10.00.  Everyone fancies a bit of Ted Baker. At Superdrug (and I also think Boots) you can bag your loved one just that, in the form of a lovely perfume for just £10. Absolustely bargain if you ask me, to say it's a Ted Baker brand. It's classy, smells good, and is the perfect size and budget to pop into their stocking. A lovely little gift to wake up to on Christmas morning.

Ferrari Red Gift Set - £13.00.  Does your fella love a bit of F1? Then he'll probably love this Gift Set from Ferrari Red. It's a simple, yet effective gift to just pop into his stocking. It's of course, wearable for everyday use and to just lather on in the shower. Of course, it smells good too!

NOT ON THE HIGHSTREET.COM

www.notonthehighstreet.com is the perfect website to look at if you want to give someone special, a lovely and personalized gift at Christmas. They specialize in a wide variety of diverse products to suit everyone's tastes, and it's bound to go down a treat when opened on Christmas day. 


Navy Blue Pansy Initial NecklacePersonalised Camera Notebook

Personalised Vintage Style Initial Necklace - £12. If you're struggling for Christmas stocking filler ideas, then look no further than this little beauty. You can't get much more personal than an initial necklace.

Personalised Notebook - £9.  Perfect for Unisex, it's a great gift idea for those that are in School, University or even at work just to jot down notes and ideas. 

Other great websites and shops would include BuyaGift.com, Argos, Poundland and more. You'd fine pretty good Christmas Stocking Fillers in there, especially for under £15 and those generally on a low-budget.

What do you guys think to my quick Christmas Stocking Fillers Guide?
As always, let me know!
Lots of love,
Hannah xoxo
