Guess Who’s Back, Back Again…

Remember me?! It’s been a little (okay a long!) while since I’ve blogged!
I’m not going to start listing off bullsh*t excuses because the truth is I just didn’t feel like it and so I didn’t – that’s it!

However, I am now back and in the mood ready to blog again – woohoooo.

Today I just thought I’d say heeeeyyy and give you a little life update!

Not a lot has really happened to be honest!
I was a bridesmaid for my sister in the middle of July – I absolutely looooved my dress, which you can see below with my gorgeoooous boyfriend. 13728909_10208422734342397_7506442328125759635_n

After that, at the end of July, I went on holiday with my gal pals for a week to the classy destination of Magalufffff!!
I had soo much fun, I love my girls and cannot wait to hopefully go back again next year, fingers crossed. 13680961_10208560125617093_6293957080968281230_n 13938536_10208560179298435_5102631737641494275_n

Other than that I’ve just been working, working, working – but who am I to complain?!
Gotta work hard to play hard aye!!!

I’m going to try and make a bigger effort with my blog from now.
I do find it hard as my room at home is so shi*t for taking photos in (I’m waiting to do it up) and it leaves me feeling really uninspired!!
But I will try and at least put something out regularly, hopefully once a week, at least.

That’s all for my little update – speak soon x

Birthday Surprise | The Crazy Bear Hotel

You might remember in my ‘What I Got For My 19th Birthday‘ post that I mentioned my boyfriend was taking me away somewhere in May as a surprise.
Well that place was the Crazy Bear Hotel in Beaconsfield and it was absolutely amazing.
So a big round of applause for my gorgeous boyfriend.
The Crazy Bear Group is a hotel chain with three hotels around the country, one in Beaconsfield, one in Stadhampton and one in Fitrovia.
They’re known for having eccentric and out there hotels which are different to your normal everyday hotel.

Today I thought I’d share a few pictures with you that I took whilst we were there.
The first thing I had to say about the hotel when we walked in was ‘wow.
It was just simply amazing and everywhere you looked there was something edgy and cool staring right back at you.

These were just the public bathrooms! Look how much detail there has been put into them!!

After a long walk around the pretty area of Beconsfield which appeared to be the sleepiest old town but so beautiful too we finally got into our room.
Again, all  I could say when I saw our room was wow!
It had a really dark interior which actually made the room feel really cosy!
We had our own kitchen and dining area which you walked through to get into the actual room with the bed, bath, toilet and sofas. We even had a private patio bit!

The bath was copper, it was absolutely huge AND it filled up from the ceiling! How cool is that?!

IMG_0843 IMG_0849 IMG_0859 IMG_0708 IMG_0705

To dinner I wore a black pair of cigarette pants and black crop top from River Island with my black suede/patent heels from Kurt Geiger that I bought last year. Check out those abs!

IMG_0713

We headed to the English restaurant for dinner – there is also a Thai restaurant – where I had lobster Mac n Cheese, YUMMY, and George had a pork mixed grill.
As you can see my portion of Mac n Cheese was h u g e and I just could not finish it all!!

IMG_0696

After dinner we went back to the room for a bit to watch some telly and let our dinner go down before we went for a dip in the pool.
We sat in the jacuzzi in the dark for a little while which was really nice and relaxing and then headed back to our room for the night armed with snacks ready to watch some tv.

IMG_0732 IMG_0744 IMG_0745 IMG_0748 IMG_0752

In the morning we went to the bar for a classic continental breakfast and it was lovely.
Of course I tucked into a few crossaints and pain au chocolates – my all time favourite breakfast food if you didn’t know – along side some green tea to rid our bodies of the junk food we’d eaten the night before!!

IMG_0754IMG_0757IMG_0760 IMG_0762 IMG_0778 IMG_0783

After breakfast we chilled in the room for a little bit before packing up and making our way to Bicester Village – a designer outlet – which was about 45 minutes from the hotel.
I only bought a couple of bits in Bicester, two Ralph Lauren Shirts and a Kate Spade Handbag, however I’ll be showing those in a collective haul soon!

That’s all from my little trip to the Crazy Bear Hotel.
I absolutely loved it and am so grateful that George chose to take me there for my birthday treat – he really is a special one!!!
I don’t believe my pictures actually do this amazing place enough justice so if you ever get the chance to visit a Crazy Bear Hotel then definitely do it!!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post!

Making a Statement with Understated Jewellery | Gemporia*

Today’s post is a little different as it is about jewellery.
I don’t tend to post about jewellery because I wear the same three pieces everyday, my watch, necklace and bracelet.
When Sam from Gemporia first contacted me about a collaboration on my blog with themselves I had a look at their website and couldn’t help but say yes straight away!
They have the most beautiful pieces on their website, all in a range or styles and prices, so there is something for everyone.

IMG_0671

Sam told me I could pick out a piece from their collection and this Aqua pendant immediately caught my eye.
It’s always been one of my favourite colours and I knew this was the necklace I wanted to talk about on my blog.

IMG_0658 IMG_0630

I love how I can wear this with the simplest of outfits such as this black jumper and it makes a statement whilst being an understated piece of jewellery.

I will definitely be wearing this necklace often when I’m not wearing my silver Tiffany necklace.
It’s such a beautiful and simple piece that complements any simple outfit and is wearable with anything.

IMG_0654 IMG_0648 IMG_0645 IMG_0647 IMG_0628 IMG_0676

I would definitely recommend that you check out the Gemporia website and see all the beautiful pieces they are currently selling.
Also, let me know if you buy anything from them, I would love to see what you purchase!

I hope you enjoyed reading about this most beautiful piece of jewellery from the wonderful Gemporia.

Life Update: Blogging Breaks & New Banners

800

Let’s start with a little apology…

I must apologise for the fact that I have not blogged for nearly a month.
I could give you lots of different excuses such as, ‘I didn’t have time’ or that I was ‘too busy’, but the truth is I just didn’t want to.

I didn’t feel inspired or motivated to blog.
Sometimes I go through these little phases and as annoying as it is for me, I just have to take some time to myself, to get my ass back in gear and get more motivated to blog.
I don’t know why I get unmotivated but sometimes I just fall out of love with blogging and need that break/

One thing that is motivating me to blog again is the fact that the amazing Jemma who blogs at Dork Face designed me this amazing header.
I am so so in love with it as it shows little details of the things I love!
I honestly could not recommend Jemma’s services enough!
She was so helpful and managed to create the exact thing I was looking for and I didn’t even know what I was looking for to begin with.
If you have a moment then please do check out Jemma’s blog.
She isn’t just a blogger, she also a full time illustrator, runs #TheGirlGang and sells cute little bits on Etsy!
She really is an awesome lady and deserves twice the attention she already gets!

Anyway, thanks to Jemma I am finally feeling a little more motivated to blog!
I am also thinking of purchasing a new theme because I am little sick of my current theme.
So keep your eye’s peeled for a new look to In The Eye Of This!

Wednesday Wants | Week 5

I have another Wednesday Wants today!
Not as big as they’ve been in the past but still enough!

collage-2016-04-19

Limited Edition Marine Allure GHD V
The first thing I would really love this week are these gorgeous GHD straighteners.
I’ve been saying that I’d like to get some new straighteners for about the past year now, honestly, they’re just something that I haven’t wanted to spend the money on yet.
Plus, mine haven’t completely broken yet, they’re just not as amazing as they were when I first got them.
I’ve seen a few bloggers have got these straighteners in different colours and when I saw this blue colour I fell in love.
They’re quite expensive so I don’t know if I’ll purchase them or not but I am definitley wishing for them.

Blue River Island Dress
I then saw this lovely dress on River Island.
I already have a dress in the same style from River Island last summer, which I bought just before my trip to Barcelona, which you can read about and see me wearing the dress here.
I loved wearing that dress all last summer as I think the style of dress is very versatile, it can be worn both casually or more dressed up, it’s a very flattering shape and you look like you’ve put a bit of effort into your outfit when really, you’ve just thrown a shirt dress on haha.
I definitely want to get this dress as I think the colours are gorgeous and I already know I love the style of it.

Cream River Island Trench Coat
Another item from River Island is this gorgeous cream trench coat.
I adore the trench coat trend, it is right up my street and fits in well with my style, so I was immediately drawn to this coat.
The thing I really like about it is the fact that it is quite a light coat, making it the perfect jacket for Spring/Summer, especially those days where it’s slightly colder in the morning then warms up.
This is something I definitely want to get at some point.

Alice in Wonerland Slip On Vans
If you follow me on Twitter (which you should be! If not, why not?! You can follow me here!) you’ll probably have seen me talking about how much I want them but cannot find them anywhere in my size (women’s UK 6).
I’m so annoyed that I didn’t buy them when they first came out in my size because I cannot express how badly I want these shoes.
I’ve searched the internet high and low for a pair in my size to absolutely no avail, so if you happen to stumble over a pair of these in my size, then please let me know!
I have always loved Alice in Wonderland, for the pure fact that we share the same name, so when I saw these vans I wanted them instantly.
I genuinely think the pattern on them is gorgeous and could imagine styling them with a really plain outfit, using the shoes to jazz the outfit up!

Sparkley Addidas Originals
The last thing I’ve been wishing for this week is this gorgeous pair of Sparkly Addidas Originals.
I have a thing for anything sparkley, especially if they’re in shoe form, so I was instantly attracted to these.
I don’t know if I’d suit these Addidas, but I’d definitely be up for giving them a try, as I absolutely love them!

That’s it for this weeks Wednesday Wants!
