Another new blog..

In addition to my main fashion blog, I've also been busy writing a beauty blog for the last few months..

Love, Lust & Pixie Dust's New Home..


I'm now blogging on Wordpress, both on my personal fashion & style blog, Becky Alyssa, as well as my work blog Fashion Design & Technology. You can follow my blog's Facebook page and follow me on Twitter, I'd love to hear from you.

See you there! xox

Hey new followers :)

Just noticed a bunch of you lovelies started following my blog on here, unfortunately I don't write on it much anymore! Partly because I find Blogger's interface really annoying and hard to use, and partly because I'm studying Fashion at university right now which takes up a LOT of time and effort!

Anyway, I have a Tumblr - who doesn't, right? - so follow me if you love gorgeous inspiration pictures of fashion, tattoos, cuteness and beautiful things!


Love Becky! xxxxxxx

I ♥ Nikes!

 My awesome new shoes.

  • The colour! Luminous yellow and turquoise and silver are the way to go.
  • The comfort! I've been wearing them non-stop the last few weeks, since it's wayy too hot for boots, and flats are killer to walk/run around in, especially if you find yourself involved in an impromptu game of Duck Duck Goose.
  • The price! Originally £60 but I got them on sale for a rather fantastic £25 at the outlet mall in Gloucester Docks. Where they also sell bags of creme eggs for £2 when it's not even Easter. It's an incredible place, I know. 
Can't really pick anything about them I dislike..the only thing is that you need to try a couple pairs on, as the sizing is weird. I'm a UK 8-9 in most shoes, but these are a 7 and they still have plenty of room left. Lovelovelove them, can't find many shoes that are cool and pretty enough for wearing in summer, yet won't mutilate your feet after a few hours wear.

What are your favourite shoes so far this summer?

I've also changed the comments to Disqus, since regular Blogger/Google comments are pretty temperamental in Firefox browsers. Plus you can choose to be alerted by email whenever someone replies to your comments..better than constantly having to check the site, right?

Update! ♥ & a return from the dead.

It is WONDERFUL to be back and posting again! I would send my apologies for the slightly prolonged break, but it has made me realise that all bloggers need some time off from their writing schedule to sort things other things out in their lives, otherwise content would be compromised, which is something I'd really rather not want to happen!

I plan to keep my following posts shorter and non-scheduled, though I'm sure I shall revive them in the near future. I've realised that I need to keep myself and all aspects of my life scrupulously organised and start planning things out so that I can schedule time for writing rather than force myself to hurriedly type a compromised piece.

Here are a few photos from my time away:


In Wales somewhere sitting on my car!

Messy hair!

Happy nape piercing

Sad nape piercing. The incorrect curved bar was removed shortly after this since it was causing a very painful buildup of scar tissue on one side. I had it taken out a few weeks ago and my friend Kyle is taking me to get it redone with a silver staple bar (the right kind!)..can't wait to have it back! ♥

And before I go, an outfit post from yesterday:

POF: Lovely warm weather and a party night in with amazing films!
Necklace: Tarina Tarantino
Top: Primark!
Belt: No idea
Shorts: Topshop
Tights: Primark

I have some INCREDIBLE new luminous Nike hi-tops I wore with this..pictures to come!

Although I've still been following all my favourite blogs..What was YOUR favourite thing about the last few months?

Mini-Break :)

Just a post to say I'm taking a short break from my blog at the moment - regular readers will have noticed I haven't posted for a while and there are good reasons, I promise! I miss making outfit posts as I haven't been feeling terribly stylish at all lately - mostly because I've not been able to wear things like necklaces, scarves or jackets/shirts with collars in ages because of my neck having problems healing up, which is no fun at all! Also with the last few weeks of school and a suddenly busy schedule of events and various things to do, it seems like I haven't had a spare second of time in which to write. I don't want to compromise my blog content because of these, or have to force myself to write when I don't feel I have enough to write about.

I shall resume my regular posting schedule in the near future; here are some links if you wish to contact me:

Question Time!

So the other day I got a Formspring account and I'm loving the completely random and hilarious questions I've already had from friends.

So..ask me something!


Ask anonymously or leave your name, ask about fashion and style, about me or just about anything else you can think of..bonus points if it makes me smile!

Any particularly interesting and relevant ones I'll post here :)

Regular posts are still rather intermittent but I shall be sure to keep updating as regularly as I can at the moment!

More Proof That I Spend Too Much Money On Awesome Things.

What I bought yesterday:

New gig bag from River Island

Proper GaGa glasses ♥

David & Goliath t-shirt from TK Maxx..I can't resist an awesome t-shirt

Dress from TK Maxx

Top from Zara

Shirt from Zara

The sequinned epaulettes pretty much made it for me

New soft plaid shirt from Primark

Skirt suspiciously similar to the ones in American Apparel but for a tiny fraction of the price

Boosh tour DVD to go with my Vince Noir-esque 80%20 boots!

Still haven't got round to playing it, but I can't wait! Saving it for an extra-boring day.

What I Wore Today: 07/04/10

Hello, Sunshine.

Even though I'm not so much into the whole springtime and beauty of nature thing, today was BEAUTIFUL. I snapped a super-quick picture of what I was wearing before I left (check out my divinely retro sleeping bag in the background):

POF: Not doing a lot on a sunny day
Shirt: Zara (more pics to come..I kinda love it!)
Tee: Mighty Boosh tour
Sunglasses: Primark (more pics to come tooo, these are lush)
Watch: Tokidoki
Bag: Urban Outfitters
Belt: Lowlife
Shorts: Topshop
Tights: Primark
Boots: DMs.

What I Wore Today: 06/04/10

Point of Fashion: Going out to buy lovely things :)
Hoodie: Hollister
Vest: New Look
Thermal: Primark
Shorts: Primark
Tights: Primark
Boots [not pictured]: Fryes

It was actually pretty cold so I'm glad I wore the thermal top! I can't wear scarves or big necklaces for a while because I recently got my nape pierced, which is a shame as I love scarves and big necklaces.
