Hope you’re all well. First of all I did a bit of redecorating on my blog, I didn’t think trying to change my website’s font and colours would be such a tedious and long process but after many hours I finished it. So I hope you like the new look my blog has, if the difference is even noticeable.
Anyway, onto more important business, how cute are these products from Lush? This is a well overdue Lush haul as I purchased these products around Easter time in 2014. Yes I know, that is quite a while ago now, I really didn’t have the setup to photograph these nicely at the time. As you can see I also find these products so cute I’ve been afraid to use them as it will mean they can’t be displayed like this! Continue reading →
Another outfit post for you all, again nothing petite specific but a few items I found to be very small fitting which makes them great for petites. This Topshop polkadot shirt dress has been made famous by the beautiful Alexa Chung who has been seen wearing this. This Topshop polkdadot shirt dress is in a UK size 6 and whilst still longer in length it is very small fitting in particular around the waist and offers a really flattering fit. As for the length of the dress you could either take it up to suit your petite height or leave it as it is depending on what you prefer. I find this polka dot dress from Topshop has a really classic look to it which I love. I also adore the collar detail of the polkadot dress. This dress is older stock from Topshop and was priced at around £45. If you want to pick up this gorgeous polkadot shirt dress from Topshop you’d probably need to search around all the usual second hand places online, Ebay, Asos Marketplace, Depop etc. Continue reading →
This is such a silly little thing to show I know but I just found this Boo Writing Set too cute to not share with you all! I purchased this Boo Writing Set in the Topshop sale for just £2. I don’t think I would have paid much more for it as it is more one of those “Aw this is so cute I need it.” types of purchases. If it had been £5 I probably would have put that money towards something else.
I’m sure I’m not alone in saying Boo the dog is too cute for me to handle and I did actually buy a Boo teddy as well from Urban Outfitters a few years ago. Continue reading →
So this isn’t a petite item but instead another of the regular pieces which seems to cater for all heights. This burgundy chiffon skirt is from American Apparel, it is simple in style which makes it suitable for all seasons and easy to dress up or down in any outfit. I can’t tell you the RRP of this skirt as I cheated and purchased it second hand on Ebay a couple of years ago. Continue reading →
So this is a very recent purchase of mine from the Topshop Petite section. Sadly it is pretty much the end of summer so I may not get many chances to enjoy this beautiful white tiered dress from Topshop until next summer but I really wanted to show all of you this cute Topshop dress in a little outfit post anyway!
This dress was initially £18 from the Topshop Petite section and later went into the sale for £10! I purchased this in a petite size 4 and whilst its length is perfect and the overall fit is wonderful and incredibly flattering there is a problem with the bust area. I find this from time to time with Topshop clothing, at times bust is never an issue, other times I feel as though some of us are being punished for our sizes. Continue reading →
So this is a rather special discovery and as an aspiring graphic novel artist, I really couldn’t resist the urge to show this work of art, ‘Blacksad’ to you all.
Blacksad by Guarnido and Canales is quite possible the most pleasing to the eye graphic novel I have ever stumbled across, with the artwork taking approximately fifteen years to complete, it’s no wonder this graphic novel looks like sheer perfection. Quite often with graphic novels I am left quite heart broken when I see incredible covers and open them up to see lazy artwork or the more common computer outline, fill coloured illustrations. What I adore about the artwork of Blacksad is its texture, through being painted it has this grainy feel to it, which for me I feel is very important for establishing mood or emotion in a graphic novel. You only have to look at famous painters such as Francis Bacon to see how painting techniques can have a powerful impact on the mood of a picture, Blacksad for me does exactly that.

I just wanted to share a quick, shall we say “craft” post? With you all! I don’t really mention it much in my vlogs or on here but I studied Computer Games Production for my degree at university. I don’t really have time to play video games anymore due to the joys of working long weeks and then also having a million books to read, films to watch, blog posts to write, music to listen to and other hobbies! It’s quite tough finding the time for anything video game wise, until it comes to the indie game world. Those little platformers, you know the ones you’re not obliged to play for hours before you can get anywhere? Continue reading →
Just a little post about a cute tin of plasters I purchased from Primark a few months ago, they make a change from my usual plain plasters from Wilkinsons. These plasters were £2 and came in this little pink tin from Primark. I have to confess I’m not sure how my style these are, I saw a really cute vintage style plaster tin in Topshop recently which looked much more appealing, but I don’t need to detail the price differences between Primark and Topshop do I? I’m sure you can imagine. Continue reading →
It feels good to be writing some more outfit posts again. Some of you regulars may recognise this gorgeous red heart print dress from one of my Primark hauls. It is slightly too big for me as a petite, the shoulders are too high on the dress and I find the length ever so slightly too long, and the dress tucks into the waist at slightly the wrong height. However these are probably things one who is wearing the Primark dress would notice more than passers by in town. I haven’t customised the dress at all in these photos and as there are many dresses for sale in Primark in this style this will also be a good representation of what to expect with the fit if you are a petite like me! This Primark red heart print dress was £8 and I later saw it in a Primark sale for just £3! Continue reading →
So as I mention in several posts, I am only 4ft 11 in height. I am usually a petite size 4 in shops and as a result find it quite the challenge to find suitable clothing for my height and build. This cute fox dress from Primark is one of my “must haves” for petites, I haven’t needed to customise the dress at all to suit my height and in a size 6 it fits my petite build perfectly.
