Celia Birtwell for Uniqlo

I heard about this collaboration from Olivia's blog and was straight onto the website as soon as it was launched.

Celia Birtwell is a British textile designer and has done a collection for Uniqlo, famed for their basics at a great price with some great quality with it, a match made in heaven surely? The prints in the collection are just gorgeous, I went for a beautifully light and silky star print blouse and cute cut off flower print leggings, perfect for the spring! 

I got a little overexcited and went pattern galore when trying the new purchases on!

The blouse has such a lovely fit, and I most definitely won't be modelling them and taking pictures outside (no one needs to see that!) so here's the beautiful models to show you instead..

The leggings are a good length for those summer days that aren't quite warm enough for shorts.

I desperately wanted this dress but they'd already sold out before I got on the website the morning it launched!!

The blouse in the middle is the same as mine but in a different pattern.

I know that online a lot of it is sold out but give the shops a go, they're such gorgeous pieces at an amazing price, thank you Celia Birtwell I can see these items featuring in a lot of future blog posts!

SHUUSH at The Lightbox

Friday night was a very impromptu night out with some of the uni boys, as most boys are it was very unorganised but we ended up going to The Lightbox in Vauxhall for Shuush's event. I don't take any credit for the organisation or picking it was all the boys choice so I haven't actually got a clue who any of the DJs are but what I can tell you is they were absolutely brilliant!

All photography from the night sourced from here

The Lightbox is a great venue, quite a smallish room but the walls and ceilings are covered in LED bulbs which light up with different colours all night, they were temperamental when we were there but when it worked it looked incredible!

The lights!

The DJ selection

Pretty sure this was my favourite DJ, from wat I can remember...

Me and all the boys, we all seem quite happy to be there

It was actually a bit of a sausage fest but the photographer has made a good effort to make it look like there were some girls!

The music was just so good, all of the house music that has become quite mainstream mixed with some unknown chilled music, just what I needed as a change from some of those boring 'chart music' clubs in central London.

They do the event every month I think and if you're organised, which s I mentioned we were not, you can get early bird tickets for £5. Keep updated on their Facebook and find the Lightbox ticket website for all of their events here.

#throwbackthursday Graduation 2012

I wasn't able to blog about this weekend as it was during my insanely horrible commuting to London time so I thought I'd do it as a part of a #tbt as the photos are too good to waste!

Bournemouth Uni loves to be different so instead of graduating when you've just finished university, in the summer sun, we had to graduate in NOVEMBER. However, it worked out well as it felt more like a reunion and a massive catch up with my course.

We're a big course of 80 strong but a hell of a lot of us are all together in a big group so the weekend was bound to be a good one. I can honestly say I think it was one of the best weekends of my life.

We had the actual graduation in the BIC, full of people and in massive heels I walked across the stage wracked full of nerves but once it was over the celebrations and happiness took over!

The stage was pretty big!!

My two favourite boys.

Mummy and Daddy Springett

Lulabee was all dressed up for the occasion too.

The lady jumping up and down is James' Mum Denise, legend.

We had champagne and jazz music after the ceremony, we were all so glad it was over!

There were quite a few of us TV lot!

The best thing about graduating in Bournemouth? The pics by the beach.

After all of the celebrations with my course, in swooped the girls to congratulate me, I'm a very lucky girl!

We may have got a little over excited..

My parents will want these framed right?!

After our thousands of photos I went for a perfect lunch with my fam where I opened all my cards and presents, definitely felt very spoilt!

That night was the Graduation Ball which was honestly one of the best nights out ever, I think we all knew we wouldn't eb all together like this again for a very long time so everyone was ready for a long night of dancing.

Vicky copying my outfits yet again!

A perfect night, weekend, everything, take me back already!
