March Travels Up North!

This month I took myself up north to have a lovely catch up with close friends, we explored many beautiful sights of the North of England so I have a few pictures from my trips out to show you.

Heading as far North as we could we got to see the magnificent Bamburgh Castle. Originally we only was travelling as far as Seahouses but once I caught a glimpse of the Castle I really wanted to get up close for a look. I couldn't believe how huge it is!

It is simply beautiful to see a landmark that has been around for hundreds of years!

We also went to Alnwick, another beautiful town in Northumberland. It has many tourist attractions to see, one being the Alnwick Tree House. We also came across some gorgeous shops in which I ended up nearly buying something in each one!

I will be posting some more about my trip soon....

Cath Kidston Safari Collection 2014.

Have you seen Cath Kidston's new Safari Collection!
Well I love it all! Here is some of my favourite pieces...

The fabric itself you can purchase by the meter. When I was in Africa I was lucky enough to go on some safari's in my spare time. Which is was I particularly love this new collection. I have already been bought the mug with the giraffe's on but I didn't realise the fabric had elephants, lions, zebras and giraffe's on! I think I need a piece! 

Or maybe a plate...

Some women have an obsession with shoes, but mine is definitely with bags, especially if it has a gorgeous print on it. I think I may need this one....

Furnishing fabrics is also a passion of mine. I have myself produced a jungle print at university which does have some similar features to the Cath Kidston one. I love this cushion in the collection and how the trees have tiny detail of embroidery. So cute!

Or why not just have the cushion in the print iteself....

Oscars 2014!

Talk of the showbiz news today is the Oscars 2014! So I thought I would join in and share some of my fashion favourites from the red carpet! 

Anne Hathaway wearing a gem covered halter dress by Gucci. You can never go wrong with a LBD. It makes her figure look amazing!

There is always someone who wears nude, and here we have it. Cate Blanchett's porcelain skin and blonde hair makes wearing this nude Giorgio Armani gown effortless. Simply stunning.

Jennifer Lawrence was another one of the best dressed at the ceremony, dressed in a gorgeous red number by Dior. However, it wasn't just what she was wearing everyone was talking about, she also had another fall!

Another embellished nude dress, Sally Hawkins wears Valentino.

Lady Gaga never fails to disappoint and always makes a statement in everything she wears. Not as outrageous as her normal attire Lady Gaga wear's a glamorous Versace number! Very feminine. 

Then there's that epic selfie! AMAZING! I'd love to photo bomb that one!
