To the beach...

Last week I found out that my dad had booked a Villa for the family in Spain in September. It is a little while off, but it has got me SO excited (I haven't been on a summer holiday for almost 3 years!) and I'm hoping to also book a little last minute week away before hand. 


Expect a lot more images like this!

Nicole Richie - Fifi Awards 2012

The Fifi Awards were a few days ago, so I know I'm a little behind. I started work this week, so I'm just settling into new routine, however, I felt this was too good not to share.

Nicole Richie has long been one of my icons and regularly featured here at The Fashion Circus. I think she looks simply stunning in this Emilio Pucci dress.

Her make up and hair is flawless too. 

Desperately searching for a similar dress, as unfortunately my budget won't stretch to Emilo Pucci!!!

Great Gatsby

I just wanted to start by saying a massive "Thank you" and "Hello" to all my new followers and to my loyal existing followers/readers too. It means so much when I see that my little corner of the internet is shared with you all :) I still find it quite strange to believe people actually see this!

So, I have a new obsession (to add to my long list) the twenties... I didn't realise I could love an era quite as much as the 60's/70's but the twenties are giving me some serious inspiration. Flapper dresses, feathers, sequins, glamour, art deco and opulence... why haven't I discovered this before?!

My main reason for blogging about this is that this week I saw the trailer for "The Great Gatsby" directed by Baz Luhrmann. It looks simply AMAZING, I'm obsessed already and can't believe I have to wait until December to see it. I'm a huge fan of Baz Luhrmann's work; Moulin Rouge and Romeo & Juliet are two of my all time favourite films. 

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carrey Mulligan, I can see from the trailer that Baz Luhrmann captures everything that this era is about and I simply cannot wait to watch it!

Are you as excited as me?

Now, I don't think I have bought anything 'reversible' for a long time. However, I couldn't resist this mint/grey  beanie hat from ASOS...

Two for the price of one!!!

Chloe Jade Green X Topshop

I mentioned a little while ago that Sir Philip Green's (a.k.a The Retail God) daughter was launching her footwear line, CJG, into Topshop. 

I adore the collection and the mint green sole is divine and perfect (my favourite colour) and I desperately need to get my hands on a pair! 

Here are some of my favourites...

Misha Slingback Mega Wedges - here

Love. Love. Love.

Peplum Love

I'm a big fan of peplum's this season and I had to share this one I found whilst shopping in H&M the other day.

I can't decide which one I prefer, love them both!

Graduation Ball

Last night it was time to bid a fond farewell to my four years as an International Fashion Marketing student at Manchester Metropolitan University. My friends and I all got dressed up and headed to our Graduation Ball at the Hilton Hotel.

I want to smell like...

First of all I want to say that I am finally FREE! I finished my final exams on Tuesday and I have come to the end of my 4 years at university. It is such a strange but happy feeling, I am finally leaving education! So now, I should hopefully have much more time to focus on my blog (hurray!).

Today has been spent prepping for my Grad Ball this Saturday, purchasing accessories and dry cleaning my dresses (still haven't made a choice of which one I am going to wear). Whilst shopping and creating my lust list in Selfridges, I popped to the fragrance counters as I'm desperate for a new one. 

I fell in love with the Tom Ford perfumes....

I am yet to choose my favourite, but they smell like heaven. Just like everything else he does, Tom Ford has created beautiful perfume! I've been intrigued to try it after my boyfriend bought the mens and also I read that the one and only Mary-Kate Olsen wears Tom Ford... so knew it had to be good.
