postcards from eastbourne.

my love for a seaside walk has been well documented in my blogging life, so be prepared for another post reiterating that point...
one thing that makes a seaside walk ever better is ponies. well my friends there were ponies and i may have had to have been dragged away (that pony love never dies pals) exmoor ponies are a particular fave (scroll down to see why)
we went for lunch at the pilot inn (great GF choices, many gins and a pub dog, yessss please) plus about two minds from the seafront, so extra points there.
time spent with your pals with hours of ping pong and board games an ideal way to spend a windy weekend if you ask me.

sunday slouch.

sunday style 3 sunday style 5
tee | similar cardi | mango
bag | similar boots | similar
necklace 1 2

one thing i'm a big fan of is dressing for the weekend, i suppose to many people thats dressing up. not for ol' liv newman, it means jumpers, large cardigans, all the statement tees please and a thank you. 
this little (large sleeved) number is great as its punch red (allot punchier in real life FYI) that makes it look like you put a bit more effort into your look other than 'does this kind of feel similar level of warmth to my duvet?' i'm a big believer of chucking can add to my illusion of being a put together human (who am i kidding though...)
so here's an ode to weekends, may they be lazy, adventure filled or just giving your flat a much needed clean in your pj's (i've been there pals)

by the sea.

happy new year!
i just wanted to share some pictures from my favourite place, you've already heard me bang on about my love for norfolk so you can read about it here and here if you fancy.
we only had 24 hours there and a good 12 of them where torrential rain (we were going to relive our seal adventure from last year but we would have got washed away!)
instead we went t our favourite coffee shop black apollo (i recommend a visit if you're ever in holt) and i worked on my pretty terrible skills in bananagrams!

sparkle and bright.

some would say i'm a magpie, anything shiny (normally gold) i'm there for it. 
layered necklaces and hoops are my current jam and i'm always on the hunt to add to my ring collection. topshop and accessorize have been my faves recently for picking up little additions to my collections, i'm pretty keen to add some missoma pieces soon as i've had my eye on them for a wee while now.

i've managed to sneak in a little look at my new bedroom (we've lived her 3 months but you know...) you would be correct in thinking that i am sitting on a wash basket with a fluffy blanket on top, because i'm an adult but not a proper one...

from edinburgh with love.

Edinburgh 14 Edinburgh 10 Edinburgh 9 Edinburgh 15 Edinburgh 6 Edinburgh 5 Edinburgh 16 Edinburgh 7 Edinburgh 8 Edinburgh 13

this post is mainly a photographic dedication to edinburgh and how bloody beautiful it is. 
on a slightly whirlwind trip for 72 hours i managed to walk many a mile (with two hung over twenty year olds on one of the days) 
i will say the wind there is something else, i had to make an emergency cashmere jumper and hat purchase (second hand and under £30 for the two!) i recommend a trip to one the armstrong's vintage shops for great reasonably priced vintage (i have spent too long in brick lane clearly) 
another recommendation for a walk around is dean village, it basically makes you feel like you are in hazza p which is all i could ever ask for really
basically, edinburgh i love you but wish that you were a few degrees warmer (maybe i've lived in warm london too long?)

blue velvet.

shoreditch 1 shoreditch 2
dress | new look
bag | similar
boots | similar 

please let me take a second to introduce you to my new favourite shoes, is there anything more dreamy the a pair of velvet heeled boots (you're probably thinking yes and its very likely your life is v much more exciting than mine) i snapped up these bad boys at biecster village (v worth a visit) in the clarks shop for under £30, so they kind of feel like a sensible purchase... 
but they are now my shoe of choice and surprisingly go with a large amount of my wardrobe, it is worthing noting my wardrobe is predominately blue though
one thing i have been embracing this winter is a lower dernier tight (bringing you such exciting chat this post i know!) i have through and through been a 100 or more kinda gal but this winter i've thrown caution to the wind (and embraced the wind) and tried very hard to not ladder them as soon as i leave the house.
