OnePiece to rule them all

There is one very large part of my life that I've been keeping secret from you all and it's time I outed myself; on the internet I may look like I dress to the nines every day, but in reality - I spend about 70% of my time monging about in a onesie.  For this reason, of course I jumped at the change to review a OnePiece.

Honestly, I'd say I'm an experienced onesie-er; I bought the first style of onesie introduced in Primark a couple of years ago and have never looked back.  Thick, thin, fluffy, footed, footless - I've got 'em all and it's srs business let me tell you.  Okay not really, I'm definitely overdramatising but I am very into my onesies, although I now own 6 - think it's getting a little out of hand.

The quality of the OnePiece is second to none, it's super soft and fluffy on the inside, with a slouchy fit and just feels like you're wearing a cloud.  The legs are super long so cover your feet as slippers, the hood is big and zips all the way to the top (still don't understand that function) and there are four pockets, two of which zip up which is a huge bonus - I'm 5' 10' and got a size S if you're wondering.  There's also a ton of details that make the jumpsuit top of the range, I absolutely adore mine and cannot recommend one enough (I'm actually wearing it right now!).

Although the con of this onesie is that it's unisex, meaning your boyfriend will steal it - not impressed Alex.

Sunday Summary Week 158


instagram // amyvalentinex
      
1/ Did a mini photoshoot with Motel Rocks  2/ Company photoshoot with Liv & Gem!
3/ Fell in love with the Landmark hotel  4/ Full page feature in Company High Street Edit
5/ Last day interning at Company  6/ With all the babin' bloggers at the Topshop X RStyle event

I am writing this post from my house in Reading as my Company internship is now over.  I had such a great time there and was sad to say goodbye, not only to the offices, but also the lovely people who have given me a place to stay in London for the past month.  I'm still having a huge uni dilemma at the moment as I didn't get a place at my dream uni, LCF, but I'm trying to not let it get me down, and taking each day as it comes.  Reality has kind of come crashing back down on me and I'm now realising the awkward limbo of having an uncertain future and it's very unsettling.
The good news is that I'll be able to focus more on my blog now but it may take a little while for me to ease back into posting daily as I've got a lot to catch up on!
Sorry for the slightly depressing post today but I'm just feeling a little drained.  hopefully will feel a little more chipper soon.

HEADPHONES // SKULLCANDY
KIMONO* // MISSGUIDED
TOP* // NYCT CLOTHING
SHORTS* // SHEINSIDE
BAG* // PRIMARK
SOCKS // TOPSHOP
SANDALS* // BOOHOO

PHOTOS // THE URBAN SPOTTER

A feeble attempt at an outfit post but I wanted to show you some photos that were taken of me when I was wandering around London the other day. I was trying to find out where to go for an event after my Company induction and didn't notice someone was snapping me, but you can see my awkward smile in the second photo when I realised!  They were taken by the talented Daniel who runs TheUrbanSpotter blog and takes seriously cool street style photos so it's definitely worth checking out!

Sunday Summary Week 157

   
1/ Amy Winehouse hair by Issy Hyde  2/ My house bunnysat
3/ Blogger selfie  4/ Pretty sequins at New Look press day
5/ Pretty building  6/ Chilled out in Camden (Motel dress, ZeroUV sunnies)

This Monday will be the last week of my internship and although it's hard work I will miss it!  It sucked because this week I had to work six days in a row as I have a weekend job but having a chilled out day wandering around Camden made up for it.  Hope you're all enjoying the sunny weather and I'll try my best to post this week!

PHOTOSHOOT // Maui & Sons for Primark

    
ALL ITEMS FROM PRIMARK

Not so long ago I took a nice little trip down the road to Primark HQ, which I had no idea was only 20 minutes from where I live, in central Reading!  I was given the challenge to style up all of the Maui & Sons pieces and I had a lot of fun running around the store picking out items to match.  I wanted to go for a super casual beachy vibe, as that's what Maui & Sons is all about, so picked out a lot of denim and comfy accessories.  As you can see from the very last photo, I also had a little prance about in one of their pretty new dresses, such amazing quality whilst keeping affordable - perfect for prom!

All of what I'm wearing is available in Primark stores now, and to see more photos and read my exclusive interview, check out the Primark blog here!

Sunday Summary Week 156

Instagram // amyvalentinex
      
1/ Polaroid from the Motel event 2/ Got a replacement Naked 2 Palette yay!
3/ Pretty new nails 4/ In love with the Boohoo AW14 collection
5/ With Leanne, Kristiana & Laura at the Boohoo event 6/ Polaroid from the Topshop X RewardStyle party

Okay so I've been even worse at blogging this week, sorry guys! Working full time totally drains me so I'm not in the mood if i do have the opportunity, plus I don't have a place to take inside photos or a photographer! Hopefully will be back on track soon, otherwise I'm absolutely loving interning at Company despite how hard I have to work, and can't believe I'm already halfway through my internship. I'm so happy there and it's definitely the industry i belong in - even though im working twice as hard as I do at my part time job, unpaid, I look forward to every day, so just hope I make it into the fashion world in the near future!

THIS IS A LOVE SONG

  

EARRINGS* // BODY JEWELLERY SHOP
SEQUIN EYE HALTER* // THIS IS A LOVE SONG
BELT // VINTAGE
MOM JEANS* // URBAN OUTFITTERS
HOLOGRAPHIC CLUTCH* // LITTLE BY LITTLE
SANDALS* // SPY LOVE BUY
PHONE CASE* // TOUCH ZERO GRAVITY
RINGS* // ROGUE + WOLF, IRIDESCENT


I've had this set of photos saved for a little while now but just haven't got round to posting them yet! This top came into my life and went straight to the top of my list of favourite things - it's so unique and a signature piece that no one else will have, plus it's so pretty in the lights when you go out! I've glammed it up before with a bodycon skirt but thought I'd dress it down a bit for these photos, with my trusty mom jeans that have earned a permanent place in my wardrobe after being a little unsure of them before.  With the holographic clutch & earrings I think it's the perfect glam casual outfit!

Sunday Summary Week 155

1/ Mirror selfie at work 2/ Popped into the Lazy Oaf store & fell in love with a jacket
3/ Bubbleology boba tea  4/ Carla drew me, girl got some serious talent!

Okay so I've been absolutely atrocious on the blogging front this week - sorry!  My internship is so busy and I spend all day running around after samples and replying to emails, so when I get home it's nice to just chill out rather than editing a set of photos or replying to even more emails.  I will try harder to get some posts up but can't promise anything - sorry guys!
