Wishlist Wednesday - Jack Rogers & Not Jack Rogers

Hey Lovelies,

Summer is aaaaalllllmost here, I can feel it!! (When it's not raining... Which isn't much). I can't wait til summer, especially for the shoes. While I totally love my ballet flats, the back of my heels are starting to suffer a little bit, I am SO ready for sandals. Normally during the summer I rock gladiator sandals or flip flops, but I'm thinking about investing in some Jack Rogers Navajos.

{Jack Rogers}

I love love LOVE the Hamptons Navajos in Silver, I reckon they would go with absolutely everything in my wardrobe, plus if I need to they can be dressed up (Hello graduation shoes!!) or dressed down for every day wearings. However, these are preeeeetty darn expensive so I went hunting and I found these:

{Shoe Show}

Introducing the Hot Cakes Sunset Sandal!! Not bad, eh? And for under a quarter of the price of Jacks, you can't go far wrong!! Unfortunately they don't ship to the UK, but because I'm just that nice, I thought I'd share the secret with you guys :)

What do you think?? Would you wear Hot Cakes??

Friday Favourites: Strawberries and Cream Frappucino Recipe

Hey Lovelies,

I absolutely LOVE Starbucks Frappucinos but for someone on a budget, at almost £4 a pop for the big ones they're incredibly expensive to have regularly!! I found this recipe online, tried it, altered it slightly, and I just had to share it with you guys

To make it into a Chocolate Cream or Caramel Cream Frappucino just switch the strawberry sauce with chocolate or caramel sauce and remove the strawberries :)


- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1/4 cup strawberry sauce
- 4 strawberries
- 2-3 ice cubes
- Whipped cream


- Wash the strawberries, remove the stem & chop them into quarters
- Put the milk, ice cream, strawberries, ice cubes and strawberry sauce into a blender
- Blend until smooth
- Add whipped cream on top

Enjoy!! :)

OOTN 16/4/14

Hey Lovelies,

Since I'm back home for a couple of weeks over Easter, Mum decided that a family dinner out was in order, which gave me the chance to wear my ADORABLE scallop dress!! I originally saw this on SarahBelle93x's YouTube and fell in love (with her and the dress). I planned to wear it out at university, which is why the piccies are taken in my flat, but for some reason the night out never happened so I had to put the outfit on pause!!

Wishlist Wednesday: Scallop Shorts

Hey Lovelies,

I just had the worst experience ever. I was casually putting on my hoody only to find that someone was already wearing it, and that someone had 8 legs. TRAUMATISED!!!! And to make matters worse, while I was flinging it across the room, I somehow managed to pull my stomach muscles. Anyways, back to business....

This week's Wishlist Wednesday is inspired by the crazy warm weather we're having: scallop shorts

I just love 'em. They're so adorable, you can dress them up for nights out or you can wear them as an everyday outfit, and they go perfect with the Jacks (or possibly knock off Jacks) that I'm planning to buy. I'm spending this summer 300 miles further south than normal, which means I'll actually be able to wear shorts rather than the usual jeans. Althoooouuugh I've just realised that I have 2 pairs of shorts to my name. So... Shopping!!!

The plan is to buy a pair in all my main wardrobe colours (black, navy, white, coral & mint), but I'm still on the hunt, and I'm still broke. Dayyum.



ASOS and are where I'm focusing my main search, they're about £10-£20 each, but I get student discount on both sites... Woohoo!!

So what's your opinion on scallops? Approve or disapprove?
