So, here goes with 11 things you probably don't know about me...

Q1. What's been your best sale buy this season?

Oh gosh all of my summer buys have been bought in the summer sales, I think it has to be this gorgeous zara dress I bought just this Tuesday. 

I haven't worn it yet so keep a look out for how I style it, this is how some of the celebs have worn it

Q2. Flats or heels?

100% a heels girl!!!

Q3. Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because lots of people at work would compliment my outfits, and were always really shocked at the low prices of the items, so I wanted to show case that you can look super stylish and on trend on a budget.
Plus I like pointing out styles that look best on different body types, as most of my close girl friends are super tall, slim arms and legs and their problem area is their tummy.
Where as I'm 5ft 5, I keep a flat tummy what ever weight I am but my problem areas are my arms and legs. Many a time did I try and mimic one of their outfits and boy did it NOT work for me, so I have learnt how to dress for MY body type not someone else s.

Q4. What's on your wish list for the AW season?

I feel like my wardrobe is lacking colour and prints so I'm really interested to see what prints are on the horizon.
I'm also looking to get a really edgy winter coat. The one I got for winter 12 is a very classic elegant style, so I want something a little more on trend for those days I'm feeling very SJP.

Q5. If you could only shop in one store for the rest of your life, which one would it be?

This has got to be the hardest question for any shopaholic to answer...I think based on the current sale and the amazing pieces I got, I'm going with Zara.

Q6. Where do you get your style inspiration?

I regularly post my outfits on WIWT, and I like looking on there for how girls who are a similar shape to me are putting looks together. 
I look online at celebrity trend and see where there is similar items on the high-street.
Most of my inspiration comes from walking around the city, from the commute to and from work, to walking along Oxford Street there is inspiration everywhere.

Q7. Who would you most like to meet in the fashion world and why?

Tyra Banks

She didn't come from money, she has made her fortune post modelling, she has been all shapes and sizes through out her career and exudes confidence with them all and she does a great deal for charity and encouraging young girls to believe in themselves. 
Picking her brain would be an amazing experience.

Q8. Sweet or savoury?


Q9. Cocktails and dancing or, quiet meal and a DVD?

Cocktails and Dancing!!!

Q10. If you could choose a fashion era to style and wear, what would it be?

I have a mini obsession with Marilyn Monroe, and so I think it has to be the 50s but the Hollywood glamour of the 50's

Could she be any more sensational!!!

Q11. Do you have any weird talents?

I can roll my tongue in 3!?!

This isn't my tongue, but I can do it...random!!
