Music Monday's - Bedouin Soundclash

Not the newest song nor my newest obsession but it's the perfect soundtrack to this Monday.

Having just about recovered from some strange fever all weekend, I was actually excited to go to the library today and work on my English Language essay. However it has been heavy sideways raining all day and still is! So the 'trek' to the library whilst still slightly ill seems too daunting for weak little me. I am in no position to continue being ill, what with the wedding this weekend, so walking in the ice cold rain is not the best idea for full recovery...right?
So instead I'm having a fairly laidback day: listening to Bedouin Soundclash on repeat, organising my uni folders...all whilst sipping at endless cups of Earl Grey and gazing at my window wishing for the rain to stop so I can reunite with my lover that is the university library...hahaa!

I hope you love this song as much as I do.
I didn't really know much about this band until Alicia recommended I should have a listen to them to see if I'd want to see them at Leeds festival. I'm very glad she did and they ere just great live. Definitely one of my 'new' favourite bands.

Enjoy :)

Moves Like Jagger

I could not think of a decent title so I have just wrote the song I'm humming along to now.
Yes, I realise as a style blogger it's not cool to be so into such a mainstream song...I'm meant to be all prententious and be like 'I'm sorry Maroon who? Who's Christina blah blah? I only listen to The Velvet Underground darlinggg'...Well whatever, what's the point of avoiding songs you secretly love just because they are not 'alternative' enough? Right?? Right?


My facial expressions are so odd and scary.
Also I am very upset with how rubbish my new camera's quality is when it's on apologies for the grainy/blurry photo.
Nevermind I guess, it's about time I blogged my outfits here is my outfit of the day. Just had university today so nothing too dressy...lots of recently brought items though:

H&M Leather Panel Trousers
Salvation Army knitted jumper (£3!) 
ASOS black loafers (£15 in sale)
Urban Outfitters satchel

I'm going to have to finally give into my fear of someone else taking a photo of my outfits OUTSIDE, because the self timer and lighting in this flat are not so great....

Ohhhh and I have two favours to ask...
First - could you be so kind and check out the clothes/accessories I'm selling on eBay? Eda's eBay

Secondly - only recently I have discovered how amazing the Fashiolista website is, it's like creating my own little fantasy wardrobe and gaze at other people's loves...which is just perfect for little online window shopper me. So if you like to see my actual style (which means the style I'd have more of if I had more than just a student budget) please 'check me out'...HERE

Thank you all :) especially for the lovely comments.

Eda love

Music Monday's

So Monday has arrived again.
Drake really needs no introduction...

I. hate. Mondays.
Listening to this on repeat is the only thing that's keeping me focused on my Linguistics note making...oh and my 'i-focus' Vitamin water...but who knows whether a drink can help you focus. It's just a pretty pink colour and it just tastes good.

Enjoy :)

Teased by Topshop

Why do you do this to me Topshop? Just when I tell myself to stop shopping, why must you introduce a 20% off Student weekend?

I cannot resist and tomorrow I'll be in Topshop happily purchasing these 'essential' items. Sure, they are pretty expensive but I have been lusting over them for a while now and being wardrobe essentials the 'cost-per-wear' will be low. Also...20% OFF!!

So if I purchase these four items, the student discount will save me...£27.20! That basically means that I get the top for free and a couple of the rings haha! 
I hope these will be worth living on a cheap diet of porridge, apples and pesto pasta on! 

Oh I got my hair finally cut this nothing different, just shorter. I'll have to 'show it off' in an outfit post soon! It's been such a long time since I done an OOTD post...

Happy shopping and happy weekend!

Frank Ocean

I'm probably very late finding out about Frank Ocean. I used to always listen to Zane Lowe on Thursday nights on Radio 1 when I still lived at home and so was up to date with the newest music. However since being at uni, I forget about the radio and just end up listening to the same artists on my iTunes. Yet a couple of days ago I listened to Zane Lowe's show online and I couldn't and still cannot get this song out of my head.

I am obsessed with this song. Don't worry I don't relate to the lyrics haha!
So enjoy, this is the first post of my new idea 'Monday Music Obsession'  (I'll try and stick to this idea this time!)
Ohhh and apologies to my flatmates as I will be playing this loudly on repeat....until...NEXT MONDAY'S MUSIC OBSESSION. Ha. Ha.

Hope you like it!
