SHOE WISHLIST | HIGH STREET + HIGH END

I've been on the hunt for some new shoes recently - black ankle boots (yes I already own about 10 but I still need more okay?) and new heels to wear to my graduation. Because of this, I've been browsing the shoe section of online shops quite a lot so I've built up a little wishlist. I'm considering buying some of these but other ones are just never going to happen for me - I don't have over a grand to spend on one pair of heels! Anyway, hopefully you'll find something you like here or get some inspiration for your next shoe purchase.





The perspex heel adds something a bit interesting to an otherwise simple shoe. It's a subtle detail but looks so good.
Um, hello?! These are Western-style boots with sparkly stars all over them. Enough said.
My heart longs for these beautiful studded boots but at £975 they're a distant dream. Saint Laurent is my favourite designer brand and I'll know I've made it in the world when I can afford to shop there on a regular basis!
These would be ideal everyday boots for me as they'd match most of my outfits perfectly, so I might actually buy these ones.

These are the perfect night-out heels - they'll go with everything and look amazing.
These aren't the style of shoes I'd normally go for but they're just so pretty and the cut-out detail is lovely.
I love these! The colour and pattern on the heel makes them stand out from regular black platforms and it would be so nice to coordiate your bag/outfit to the colour of the heel.
The lace-up trend is huge right now and these grey heels are a more sophisticated nod to that. I'd feel more like a proper lady if I wore these shoes!





Are you noticing a theme in my taste in shoes? Black, leather and studs are my go-to.
Something a little bit different which could smarten up a more casual outfit for afternoon drinks.
These are all about comfort but they look cool too. Trainers aren't generally my thing but I'd definitely wear these ones.
I love Vans shoes and these ones are just perfect for summer. They're really appealing to me as I've been dreaming of tropical islands a lot recently...

NOBODY'S CHILD SS16 | EVENT

On Wednesday I had the pleasure of attending an amazing party for the ethical fashion brand Nobody's Child at Blow Hairdressers in Finnieston. Cocktails, hair glitter and fashion came together to make a great night in a super cool setting.

Nobody's Child SS16


Nobody's Child are a unique brand to me in that they are passionate about being conscious in all areas of their manufacturing, yet are still completely affordable. They have control over all aspects of creating their clothes and are able to ensure that the materials are sustainable and the workers at every level are paid a fair wage. Of course, everyone would prefer their clothes come from such principles, but for someone like me on a tight student budget that can be really difficult. I'm so happy to have the option to buy on-trend pieces for reasonable prices whilst knowing they're still coming from a good place.

The Spring/Summer 16 range is bang on trend with 70's influences, floaty fabrics and bardot necklines. Expect plenty of that gorgeous burnt orange shade mixed with florals, as well as clean lines and monochrome stripes. The 70's Floral Dress (£20) looked beautiful and perfect for strolling around in the summer.

The monochrome rail really drew me in as I pretty much live in black and grey anyway. The checked pinafore was super cute, and the Black Deep Plunge Bodysuit (£10) would be a sexy addition to your night-out wardrobe. All these pieces would work well together so you can get yourself a good few outfits for a total bargain price.

Tantrum Doughnuts Glasgow


The event itself was so much fun - the fab DJ Elisha created a girl power soundtrack to the sparkly cocktails, braid bar, amazing doughnuts from Tantrum and even a designated selfie station complete with a ring light for that Insta-worthy skin. Of course, Blow also showed off their famous Glitter Roots which looked even cooler in person!

I met so many amazing ladies and it was great to meet girls whose blogs I've read for ages as well as finding new ones to swoon over. The founders of Nobody's Child were so lovely, too, and it's clear to see they have such a passion for what they do. Huge thanks to the wonderful Sheri for the invite - that girl knows how to throw a party!
