As you may or may not know, a while ago I was very excited to find out that I'd been picked to be an Access All ASOS Insider. 
After receiving a little welcome parcel in the post I was already feeling pretty chuffed to be part of #AccessAllASOS but things were about to get a whole lot better when I was lucky enough to be invited to the Aladdin's cave of the fashion world (otherwise known as ASOS HQ) for their 'Selfie School'. 

The day involved meeting a few of the other very lovely Insiders, a talk from ASOS' very own social media wizard Hannah Craik, a quick tour behind the scenes in the amazing offices and a masterclass with the seriously talented mobile photography expert Mr Olly Lang, aimed to finely tune our ability to take the perfect 'selfie'.

After sampling each and every delicious canapĂ© we were set a variety of tasks. From taking a mirror selfie without any evidence of a phone (harder than it sounds), to compiling a combination of full length shots with close-ups - we were given insider tips on how to master them all. 

I may not have been top of the class but I definitely graduated Selfie School 100% more clued up on which apps to use and which angles to snap from. I even somehow managed to nab a prize for my mirror selfie - it wasn't quite up there with Kim K's but it was close.  

Thanks to everyone involved at ASOS for a great day!

Ti Sento...

After complaining of tiredness all week I am now unable to sleep out of sheer excitement.

Next week I will be having my first week off work since starting in July and to say I can't wait would be an understatement. 
As appealing as a week of pure laziness would be, I've got a few plans that I'm sure will keep me occupied...

On Saturday I've been lucky enough to receive an invitation to ASOS Head Quarters for their 'Selfie School'.
It basically involves a day of tips and hints from the very talented Oliver Lang as we master the perfect way to take a 'selfie'. 
I may not be up there with the likes of Kim Kardashian when it comes to taking pictures of myself but I'll give it my best shot, and who could turn down a day involving a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes at ASOS?!

After my day in London there's going to be a lack of blog posts as I'm off to New York. 
It's somewhere I've always dreamt of visiting so I don't think I've quite come to terms with the fact that I'm going to be there in 2 days time. 
This time next week I will most probably be in a post-holiday mope after flying back to the UK...

Anywayy... last week I went along to a new store opening in Manchester's Trafford Centre.
Opposite the Apple store you will now find a little jewelry shop called Ti Sento, and seeing as it's the only one in the UK it's definitely worth a visit.

The night was filled with champagne and canapes before the ribbon was officially cut and the store was pronounced open. 

I'm a big fan of their rings so am hoping to find one beneath the Christmas tree this winter...

Pretty in Pink.

When I was about 10 years old I decided to cut all ties with my inner girly-girl. There would be no more hair braiding or playing with make-up and my time of aspiring to be Baby Spice was over.
I decided I was a tomboy, yet despite getting through my phase of baggy t shirts and WWF wrestling I never quite redeveloped a love for the colour pink. 
I always considered it to be a bit tacky - but how wrong I was!
Pink is back and this time even I have been lured in by fluffy knits and pretty pastels...

Sooo, we're only half way through the week and I've already worn my leather skirt once. I would probably wear it everyday if I thought it was acceptable. 
I wear it to work, to go shopping, to go for dinner...who'd of thought leather could be so dynamic?! 

I've recently been seriously struggling to find some new clothes for nights out, the past few weekends I've headed to town with the intention of getting a new outfit but nothing seems to be ticking the boxes so inevitably I find myself arriving home empty handed to my trusty leather skirt.

If you're not as obsessed as me then have a look at the outfits below and take my word for it, you need one in your life.
