The Lair

Welcome to The Lair- the workshop behind the madness!





 

Some top tips on saving space and (most importantly) clothes storage:

-double, triple, QUADRUPLE hang EVERYTHING in your wardrobe
- hide clothes underneath tables/ in any spare drawers you have (my extra wardrobe is hidden under my accessories table)
-cover tables/ chairs etc with large over sized vintage scarfs for a cute look
- stuff things down the sides of desks and tables
get yourself some stackable boxes (as much as I hate them at home, they do help with lack of space)
-put moisturisers/ hair products/ books etc on windowsills if they'll sit there
- stick notes/ extra paperwork/ nice pretty things on your walls. I hate my degree, but I'd have definitely failed without my notes on the walls (balanced out with some pretty pictures of course)
- Fill unused suitcases etc with stuff you don't use that often
- If all fails, shove it all in a cupboard and hope for the best!

I've always been a bit of a goth at heart, but who can say no to leather, tassles and velvet?? Not me for sure...


Happy Wednesday!

I Heart....

Can you guess what I love yet?

PUGS AND SLOTHS OF COURSE!
I'm so obsessed, I actually have stuffed toys, t shirts and handbags dedicated to my love of them. 
Call me sad... 
in fact, do, because it is. I don't care!

Now here are some cute pictures:

How to make it as a fashion blogger: Fashion Oyster


Georgia Hathaway (aka Fashion Oyster), was one of the kind bloggers to reply to my request for their inside tips on making it as a fashion blogger! You can see, this lovely lady knows a thing or two about the big F and I'd thought you might like to hear what she has to say!




 

Hello! My name is Georgia and I'm Fashion Oyster
I blog at www.fashionoysteruk.com
My blog is about finding the 'pearls' of the fashion world.
When I first started blogging I was hooked!
I like style spotting.
I love green tea, gourmet popcorn and sushi.
When I was younger I wrote my own magazine called TOPNEWS
My biggest fashion faux pas was khaki combat trousers
My resolution for 2013 save up for a designer handbag.
KEEP CALM YOU'RE FABULOUS!
Best Tip for a new blogger: be yourself.
Tweet me @GeorgiaHathaway



What can I say? She's fab! Please check her out- I love her insightful articles and her affinity with pugs (namely her boyfriend's pug called Pugsley! AWH WITH A CAPITAL 'A'!!) She's also a big Company mag fan, and we all know how much I love that too! Thanks again, Georgia :)

WANTED:

Enough of this uncalled for post-exams sadness! Here's some things I really like/ want in my life right now.
amazon.co.uk
Fuji Film Instax- I'm a huge fan girl, but I've always wanted a camera that prints instantly and I sickeningly love Polaroids (I'm a cliche, I know.)

ulrikkelund.com

This outfit. Mainly for the feathery jacket. (Damn you Topshop.)

A bebe pug like thiiiiis one!
nastygal.com
Ohmygodshoes that look like a mash up between Roy Litchenstein and Lady Gaga's stylist.

Underwear like this. It looks painful... but I still want it.

effiesmakeupbox.blogspot.com
And last... and most weirdly... a bumbag. Because I'm fundamentally lazy and want something to carry my stuff for me (might as well make use of my child-bearing hips to hold something anyway).


And now some things I'm very happy that I have (WARNING: SEVERE CHEESE):
- Great supportive, loving mates and family who love me despite my affinity with crazy outfits
- A pre-booked year abroad to St. Petersburg, Buenos Aires and Medellin
-A great job with great people that I love!
-Exciting opportunities for the future and the BIG LIFE PLAN.
- A pension fund (yeah, I'm organised.)
- An xbox.... and Skyrim to see me through the lonely nights
- SO. MANY. CLOTHES.

If there's anything I've learnt, you can always want more, but never forget what you already have.
Stay true, readers!
