Inspiration and a giveaway!

I've literally just arrived home after dropping off my sister, Hailey at the airport. She's off to SE Asia for 2 months so here is a quick post before I go and raid her wardrobe and convert her room into my temporary walk in wardrobe muhahahaha...

Ahem, anyway, let's get back to the subject of this post! Sometimes you come across blogs that you instantly love and find yourself saving lots of their photos in inspiration folders. Hong Kong blogger, Mayo Wu from Mellow Mayoness is just one of those. I've been following her style blog for a while now and what I especially love is how well she mixes and matches her wardrobe. Her favourite items REALLY are her favourites and you'll see them repeated in some form or another in her outfits. Of course we'd all love to wear shiny new clothes all the time but it's just not reality is it? Seeing bloggers remix their favourite items is definitely inspiring. Of course, when we're talking about remixing it would be a crime to not mention Rebecca's awesome posts.

Style-wise, Mayo has a really cute, girly style with a love for delicate patterns and a fondness for the shoes and socks combo!

Moving on to my giveaway! I don't do giveaways very often but as I mentioned in my previous post, Polaroid Sunglasses offered to provide some sunnies to a lucky reader of my blog and it was too good to turn down.I've chosen these 1950s style cat-eye frames that are suitably named Marilyn which are worth £85! Everybody loves retro sunnies right? Even if there is not much sign of the sun at the moment, you can swan around pretending you're a glamorous Hollywood siren. You don't have to do anything fancy to enter, just follow the instructions below:

1. Leave a comment
2. Please remember to provide an email
3. Give away only open to readers in the EU

The giveaway closes on Wednesday 13th April. Winner will be picked randomly and I'll notify them by email. Good luck guys!

  55. Thanks so much for sharing this blog with us, I am definitely going to check it out! I love her style and I love that she reincorporates the same things over and over again...so much more realistic, especially for poor uni students like me! Laughed when you talked about raiding your sister's closet, btw, because that's what my sister did when I moved over here. I find half of my things in her closet now--hilarious!
