Tu Clothing

When Sainsbury’s no longer *just* your go-to for groceries…

Woah. Hold me back. Hold me so back that I look like I’m at the front (somehow).

Can I get a “GRACIAS?!” … I would say AMEN but umm… Today, I want to switch it up.

I’m legitimately obsessed. Extremely obsessed that if someone asked me why I’m ‘obsessed’, I’d just reply with: “’cause OCD summoned me to their HQ and BOOM! There. It happened.”

Anyway, yeah, if you’re looking for Summery PJs, Tu Clothing from Sainsbury’s might have to get a visit! No, really…

You know that song: “you go to Tesco’s, where you get your best clothes”? Well, I’ve upgraded and I’m rocking Sainsbury’s bedroom attire for now!

“DRESS WELL, FOR LESS”. Yes, I know it’s “LIVE” but come on! You can’t “LIVE” an outfit, can you? … You can live IN an outfit, though!

God (and my whole University together with its students/lecturers) knows I LIVED in a blue Hollister hoodie for THREE YEARS! But, like, it’s Spring – and Summer’s coming up, so I can’t wear hoodies, unless I want to Sweat more than Bet(ty)…

What else have I got to say? Visit Sainsbury’s.

Buy some really orange, blue, coral PJs and live life the the full.

Life is everything. Live it the way you want, with the people you want.

When you can’t think of anything to write, just include some lyrics to one or two of your favourite songs:

“Yeah, uh-huh, you know what it is
Black and yellow, black and yellow
Black and yellow, black and yellow

Yeah, uh-huh, you know what it is
Black and yellow, black and yellow
Black and yellow, black and yellow

“He’s too hot (hot damn)
Call the police and the fireman
He’s too hot (hot damn)
Make a dragon wanna retire man
He’s too hot (hot damn)”

Gotta kiss himself he’s so pretty.

Michael Kors

Crafted from pebbled leather, our tri-tone Mercer tote is a thoughtful update to a timeless silhouette. Tuck important items—such as your keys, phone and wallet—in the median zippered compartment, and carry it by its elegant top handles or go hands-free with the removable shoulder strap.

I don’t blog about fashion items as much as I’d like and that’s ’cause I don’t really buy a lot of clothes or accessories… The way I see it, I’ve got clothes in my wardrobe and a washing machine so… Why buy more when I can save up for a place of my very own to put that (and more wardrobes) in? I’m doing that now though! 👊💪

Trust me, if my make-up could refill itself without me having to go out and buy some more, I probably wouldn’t buy that either… Having said that, I’m always trying new make-up so that’s not strictly true. 😆

Michael Kors is a brand that, if I’m honest, I’ve never really been on board with… I can never seem to escape people’s Christmas or Valentine’s Day gifts on my feeds – and somehow they’re mainly pictures of “bae done good” with a Michael Kors garment or product attached.

Of Kors there’s no denying that they’re good gifts, but I’ve never been one to follow the crowd. If it’s something lots of people have or are doing, I don’t want it.

Having said that, I did fall truly, madly, and deeply in love with one bag in particular… Yes, I’m talking about the ‘Large Leather Mercer Tote‘ – it’s #BagGOALS (not bagels), and I adore it.

How many times do I need to explain my love for the colour blue before it actually sinks in? Everyone who’s ever come across at least one of my posts anywhere online would know this…

I particularly love that this bag includes two shades of blue, sky and midnight. 💙

Now that we’re discussing the bag, I’ve got to state that I don’t quite understand why Michael thought to name it a ‘LARGE” Mercer Tote when I couldn’t even fit my MacBook into it… I’ve seen cakes larger than this supposedly “large” bag. What’s more, it’s not really UK weather-friendly…

If you live in England, you must be well versed in the whole: “I left my house in shorts and a vest top but came back wearing wellies, a North Face jacket and holding an umbrella”. Well, this bag doesn’t have zips so good luck keeping whatever you put inside it away from the rain! However, the leather of this bag is durable and of pretty good quality so it should be fine, externally.

PLEASE NOTE: the floral strap attached (as seen in the picture above) does not come included with the bag, it’s sold separately.

Fashion. It’s very important, isn’t it? I might not blog about fashion much, but I do dress myself in: “clothes” of ALL THINGS!

It’s got to be said that YOU have it sussed. 💖😍

However, if you know someone who doesn’t, please spread the word? Next time you feel like spreading the word, phrase or paragraph – even a dissertation would do – say: “Riccado”.

Riccado is an outlet that supplies designer/branded garments for men and most recently – ladies.

I’m well versed in Riccado clothing. I can tell you everything you need to know… Although there’s a flagship store in Chiswick, you can also order online HERE.

Let’s talk about the designer labels they stock, shall we..?

Riccado “belled” Roy and told him: “BOY! We need you.” #Bellroy. Then, a BOSS called Hugo (who hasn’t got a patch on you my liege/sire/master/legend of a homosapianism) came down and asked: “what about me?!” Riccado started stocking them as well!

Speaking of Hugo (Tailor* of MIC) Boss… What’s your favourite colour? At Riccado you can find Hugo Boss Orange, Black, or Green. But – please – why hasn’t Hugo Boss got a Blue range? Hugo Boss(man), “wagwaaaaaaaaaan wiv dat, fam?” That can’t run (unlike Forrest). #SOColousit! 😥

Oh, about colours, I meant to say this earlier but blue looks g(l)ueeeeeeeeeeeeeed on you! #HotFlushAlert 😚

Sock it up, ’cause Burlington (without Bertie) need to be upon your feet parts. Yeah, they do Burlington Socks an’ all.

If you need a Camper (excluding the van), Riccado stocks them too! Diesel to put in that Camper (no van)? Don’t worry, Riccado gotchu.

Emporio Armani… Not emperor though, ’cause there can only be one of those… 😉

You know Ted (that Great British) Baker who also does threads on Monday-Friday (probably weekends also)? Riccado stocks their collections.

The full list of designers, again, is HERE. I can’t HACKETT.

Think luxury, think threads for DAYS, WEEKS, MONTHS, YEARS, DECADES, AND CENTURIES. Then think: “whoops!” after you’ve overspent ’cause the collections are THAT good.

Ladies, as I said, they’re going to be having your back too (literally). Accessories are a girl’s best friend for now, right? Handbags are coming soon – sometime between dusk and dawn. You’re welcome.

I am in the process of booking my next holiday for Summer 2017. It’s going to be a beach holiday, this year…

Sun, sand, sea and… BFF! It’s going to be fun. Sippin’ Piña Coladas, catching a golden glow or two, chilling out on the beach, going for a swim (in the shallow end), having a crab clawing into my bikini… (hopefully nor the latter). Perfection.

Guess what, though? I have dropped almost two dress sizes which means I’m going to need a new wardrobe. Either that, or I go in my birthday suit! 😂

My first choice for holiday garms is ASOS! ASOS have affordable but good quality holiday-wear. My entire wardrobe of my Switzerland break in May 2015 came from there!  😍

If you’re going away this year, check out ASOS and try to get in early before they sell out of your size. That ALWAYS happens to me! Hence why I’m planning on getting in early this time!

Once I’ve chosen what I’m going to purchase, I’ll be doing a haul and Look Book post, so that you can get the look – if you so wish.

Also, I’ll have my camera by the time I go on holiday so I’ll be video-blogging my stay! 😌

Me in my Manchester United shirt

Manchester United. I’ve supported them since the Alex Ferguson days, then took a hiatus when he retired as manager. We then started playing abysmally and went down in the league (which is why I took the hiatus in the first place). 🙈
