"Reading is dreaming with eyes wide open..."



I've been a huge fan of reading since before I can remember. When I was younger I constantly had my head in a book and devoured anything I got my hands on. I believe there's nothing better than curling up with a steaming mug of tea and a gripping page turner - I always feel slightly disappointed when the story is over and it's time to face reality again! Due to uni work and other commitments getting in the way, I've not had time to read as often as I'd have liked to this past year (apart from the odd copy of Heat on my lunch break). Therefore I'm long overdue some quality time with a decent novel.

Inspiration: Delicate Tattoos



I've always had mixed feelings when it comes to tattoos. While I think they look amazing on other people, I'm not sure if I'd ever be able to commit to one myself. However, I couldn't help but fall in love with the dainty and ever so tasteful designs I've been seeing on Pinterest and Tumblr lately. Aren't they beautiful?

Prague Photo Diary



I recently returned from a short trip to Prague and thought I'd share a few of the pictures I took. I've been wanting to visit this beautiful city for so long now and it certainly didn't disappoint. I am completely in awe of it's stunning architecture and rich history. 

When researching city breaks, I find trips to places such as Paris, Barcelona and Rome are always heavily advertised. Prague seems a bit underrated and I have no idea why. I'd 100% recommend you visit if you can. There's so much to see and do here, not to mention the fact it's super cheap. We were really lucky with the weather too which was an added bonus.

Monochrome




With payday fast approaching I've been indulging in a little window shopping. I first spotted this beautiful Teddy on Pinterest and knew I had to track it down. After initially thinking it was a bodysuit suitable for outdoor wear (oops) I eventually found it in the lingerie section of the Victoria's Secret website. Even though it's an undergarment, I think this would look amazing teamed with high-waisted jeans and a blazer. I'm not sure how sheer it is but I think with enough tit tape I'd be brave enough to wear it out (currently picturing the episode of Friends where Rachel goes out to dinner in her nightie). If not, I reckon it'd look equally as nice peeking out from underneath a slouchy t-shirt.

Norma Jeane



My love for Marilyn Monroe came about when I was really young - an old pub my Grandad used to take me to for lunch had a wall filled with her photos. I watched a few of her films with him and I remember being completely fascinated by her. As I've gotten older, the story of her life - and sudden death - has continued to interest me. Like many people, I've always seen her as the ultimate poster girl for glamour; the blonde curls, the lipstick, the curves. I always remember thinking she was the most beautiful women I'd ever seen when I first watched her movies. Even in candid shots she looks flawless.
