I touched down in '86

From zero posts in three and a half months to two posts in a week? You can tell my consistency is on point... To start this post on a positive note, there's no laundry in the background ;-) anyway! Drake tee? Check. Next on my list is that 'surfboard' Beyonce sweatshirt. Or the whole collection? As much as I adore Foals, The Vaccines, Mumford etc. (you get my drift), my inner R&B/Rap likes to make an appearance every now and then and recently I am very slightly obsessed with Drizzy (and Chris Brown but we'll get to that another time). 

It's come to my attention that I've had this pair of Topshop's Joni jeans for ages but I haven't featured them in an outfit. I'm a sucker for high-waisted jeans/shorts/everything and I absolutely adore these even if they are a pain to get off. And they go perfectly with my favourite, almost staple, grey Zara jacket. It's the perfect 'weight' jacket for when it's sunny with a slight breeze; in other words it gives you the perfect amount of warmth!

Is it a little too late to say 'happy new year'? The last time I posted was in 2013 and as upsetting as that is, it's difficult for me to blog when I'm at uni without a budding photographer to help me out and unfortunately I haven't quite mastered top notch self-timer skills just yet. And to top it off, the one day I find the time (and a photographer) to snap some outfit photos, my neighbour decides to put her laundry out on the washing line so please excuse that :-)

As much as I want to say I've been loving the beautiful weather we've been greeted with these past couple of weeks, I can't. I have spent majority of my Easter break revising for summer exams and so have spent more time at a desk than sipping cocktails so this is my 'library outfit'. ANYWAY! I feel like I should bring some positivity to my first post of 2014 so I'm glad to say that I passed the first semester of uni with a first and I actually managed to get a job. As well as that since the start of the year I have had a new 'no looking back to the past' kinda motto kinda thing which has helped me become a lot more happier in general.

These are a few of my favourite things...

If you're a nosy one like me, you'll love this post. I've read so many 'what I got for Christmas' posts already, I'm still not bored and I couldn't wait to share a few of my favourite presents from my birthday at the beginning of the month and Christmas. 

Beginning with the renowned Yankee candles, I got given a few samples and I am in love with the 'Christmas Cookie' scent. A few other favourites include 'Salted Caramel' and 'Clean Cotton'. Speaking of scents, I've been waiting to get my hands on 'Honey' by Marc Jacobs for ages and when I unwrapped this on my birthday I was overjoyed! I was given a new bottle of 'Daisy' as well which only meant one thing...double the happiness! And staying on the topic of beauty, I now own a Chanel lipstick (limited edition too, say whaaat?) and the beautiful Naked 2 palette.

How cute is the Zara gift card packaging? On top of the gift cards, I received some lovely new clothes but I'm sure you will come across those in future outfit posts. I'm not sure about anyone else but a new pair of pyjamas are one of life's greatest elements (exaggeration? I think not...) and so when my mum gave me several pairs, you can imagine how happy I was, especially with the splendid tartan print bottoms. And of course, my favourite gift of all...

I'm one of those individuals that love technology and the moment I put in my new SIM card, I could feel the difference between this and my old iPhone 4S straight away and as expected, I fell in love with it. It's sleek, lighter and of course the fingerprint scanner is pretty darn cool ;-) I took a cheeky snap so y'all can follow me on Instagram, @whoistanya. And Christmas wouldn't be complete without numerous boxes of chocolate. I'm now sitting with my crisps sandwich (don't worry, one of my new year's resolution is to eat healthy) and on the hunt for more presents posts so if you've done one, leave the link in the comments!
