Special Delivery!


I know its been a while since i've posted and i'm very sorry. I've just got tonnes of assignments and i'm just about to go into exams and ARG! Anyways, I was a-scrollin through asos and came across a couple of things I really liked and after intensive begging, I bought them!

I ended up buying a pair of boots and a pair of tights for the fast approaching cold months.

New Look Calypo Studded Black Flat Boots-$38.43

I really needed some new black flat ankle boots as my ones from last year, which were absolutely gorgeous, grew mouldy and mildew at the back of my wardrobe which i'm terribly allergic to and I had to throw them out. I have been on the lookout for a new pair for a while now and i've been loving the stud trend thats in at the moment so when I saw these I knew they were the ones for me! I had seen a few around like this but they weren't as nice and were way more expensive so I felt I really couldn't go wrong. I can tell i'll be pretty much living in these boots this winter, look how nice they are! I love the way they dip at the front and the back and how the studs are only on one side of the boot, the perfect pair of casual boots in my opinion! 

ASOS Swallow Print Tights- $13.37

What they look like on (minus the weird circles, thats just the camera)

I didn't really need these but I saw them on the side bar as a "recommended item" and I couldn't scroll past. I super love them, and at 13 bucks were super affordable! I wore them with the boots last night on a night out and they looked super cute! If you follow my instagram (alexxhorne), you will be able to see the outfit I wore (just a casual plug there).

I really like asos, it has clothing to suit everyone and free shipping! Now that makes me one happy camper! I'm absolutely sick of websites making the shipping just as much as the product you want to buy, it's just ridiculous and unnecessary in my opinion. I'll leave the link HERE so you can check them out. Just a quick warning, I may not be posting much in the upcoming weeks as I have exams soon and I really need to study but i'll see what I can do. Have a fantastic weekend! 

Pip pip!

A New Look!


If you've looked at my blog the past few days and thought "Oh wow! That looks flash! However did she manage to do all that?!" well this is the post for you! My blog has gone through some changes for the better recently and I thought I would write this post to explain all the techy bits and pieces involved in case you're interested. I first found out about Designbyte when I was reading through Amber's blog and thought "wow, I need this!" so I messaged him on facebook and away we went!  

I had a few ideas about what I wanted so in my email, I just listed all my ideas and he designed around them (as well as using his own fantastic ideas). I asked him to design my header, a button and link buttons and I only had to wait a day and he was done! wowee, talk about talent! After a bit of tweaking here and there and many many emails, he had sorted everything out for me (i'm not very good and techy things, i just don't understand it all) and we were all set! He was lovely and so patient with me when I was bombarding him with emails and he got everything spot on which made me a very happy camper indeed.

If you need some help with your blog design, go to his facebook page or email him at He's happy to help you and isn't charging anything at the moment as he wants to build up a portfolio so you would be helping him out as well, happy days!

Pip pip!
