Fringed Boots | Festival DIY

Next week I'm going to Reading Festival so I'm doing lot of prep ready to go. I wore these boots last year to Latitude but I wasn't keen on them even then. They've become quite worn over the years and the studs I'm not so much keen on anymore. So I decided I wanted to change them a little bit. In a really easy way!

Birmingham | Aluna Cocktail Bar

This is a new feature that I hope you will all enjoy. It's something I've been thinking about doing for a while on my blog. I'm in Birmingham a lot and have been so many places but its not until now that I've thought it would be nice to share those places with you who read my blog. 
Many of you as I can imagine come from different places and might be new to Birmingham, have never visited or do know it and might discover some new gems here. 

A few weeks ago I got invited to try some cocktails at The Aluna Cocktail bar in the Mailbox admittedly I haven't properly been to the Mailbox before. I've passed through but never actually explored it, so I didn't know this place existed.
I love a good cocktail bar like the next person and without bragging I have explored quite a few. 
So in comparison to many this cocktail bar is very well priced. Cocktails ranging from around £6-£9 there maybe some below or above these prices but this was on average. 

What I love about this place is that the cocktails are so unusual, they have this whole magical and sort of mysterious feel to them. Lava lamp and A colour changing Martini to name two. 
Jay tried the Lava Lamp and honestly it was so impressive it looked as though it was a real lava lamp, the colour and the little balls in it that go up and down the glass was crazy to watch, that and the smoke that comes from it. I'm so sad I didn't get a video, even more reason for you to go visit though!

I had a marshmallow Daiquiri. I am such a sucker for Daiquiri's at the best of times but I bloody love marshmallow they toast it on top which makes it so nice!

We also tried a the Lemon Pie Cocktail and one of their other concoctions which we wasn't entirely blown away by. However I haven't tried a cocktail I don't like yet, call me an alcoholic but I really don't think you could go wrong with any of the cocktails here.

What I also loved about this place was the decor. Its got a really rich and expensive feel to it, whilst being quite casual and relaxed at the same time. I think that was down to the time of day we visited, apparently it gets quite busy in the evenings.

If you fancy a visit to this place just check it out on the map at the beginning. I'd definitely recommend. Or you can visit the website here
They also do cocktail classes! So that's definitely worth checking out!

You'd still love this, incomplete.

T-shirt dresses seem to be really in at the moment. I should probably know if they are, being a fashion student and all but truthfully I just spotted quite a few when having a browse around Birmingham a few weeks ago. I decided I really quite liked them so naturally I brought a few.
This one I liked a lot.

An outfit post FINALLY??! It hasn't even been that long since my last one (at the beginning of June) but it just feels like ages since I've done some. And I know you all enjoy these ones so I apologise for that! 

I'm not really a massive fan of white clothing, which seems quite a strange way to start a post where I am wearing fully white.

3 copper DIY projects to do this weekend

Over the last few months I've been putting the finishing touches on my bedroom which has been quite a long process, but in-between university and life it has been a challenge to get things done. However with my time off I did set myself a few little DIY tasks to do for my bedroom that were quite quick and easy and again like I said little touches that make the room mine. 
Im obsessed with copper so I thought i'd base this post around copper themed things, I put together this post because they are things that aren't too hard to do and may spark a bit of a DIY bug in you.

Turning 21 | Life Lessons

Last week I turned 21, which so far doesn't feel much different to being 20 only that I can apply to adopt a child (too scary right now) or fly an aeroplane (learn first obviously)
In a strange sense I do kind of feel like an 'actual' adult now. I mean I always have been grown up for my age and always sort of acted older than I actually am. But to be 21 it kind of feels more grown up you know? That probably means I should stop thinking poptarts for breakfast are a good choice.
