Hey everyone!

Here are some pictures of a trip that we went on to Brighton on Monday, it was a fantastic day, I have wanted to go to Brighton for so long so it was so nice to finally go and see the famous seaside town. It was definitely worth the wait, the town itself is really gorgeous, with cobbled streets and so many old fashioned sweet shops, its a sweet lovers dream (aka me!). When in Brighton, eat fish and chips- and we sure did, they were soo good! A word of warning, the seagulls there are crazy, literally, and they can smell chips from a mile away, so be prepared for some ducking and a little but of running too, its all part of the Brighton experience! :)

How has everyones week been? Any plans for Halloween?

Lots of love, Paloma xxx

They who are my army, the wall of arms around me- Twist on the Trend

Wall of arms- The Maccabees
Hey everyone! Heres the third 'Twist on the trend' to feature on our blog, this week we chose to style the A/W 2012 trend of leather, something which I previously would have been too scared to try!
Leather is huge for autumn, with everything leather from skirts to jackets popping up on the highstreet. It was a great trend to style, have a look at how the other girls styled it over on their blogs! Definitely worth a read :)
More on how we styled the trend:
 Jess is wearing: Top- New Look, Leggings- H&M, Boots- Primark, Jacket- F&F
Paloma is wearing: Shirt (worn underneath)- H&M, Jumper- Mercer and Madison, Leggings- H&M, Chelsea Boots- Primark
Neither me or Jess have really attempted the leather trend before now, so were really excited to try and have a go at styling it!
Jess went for a monochrome, teaming her bold print top with boots and a leather jacket, creating a great autumn look.
I wore my leather-esque leggings and new purchase chelsea boots(I have been looking for a pair for ages!) with a collar and box jumper to give the look a more casual feel :)
How has eveyones week been? No Great British bake-off has finished- what do I do with myself on tuesday evenings now?! I think this may call for some therapy baking!
I also got the cutest little hamster last week, she is called Ayla, after one of my favourite songs by the Maccabees :)

Friday Night- Spector
Hey everyone!
Yay! its Friday tomorrow, this week has been so tiring, and the weather doesn't help, but the weekend is in sight! Just a tiny post of the outfits that we wore yesterday in sixth form (note the smart trousers- its so strange not being allowed to wear jeans!)
This shirt is one of 'those' charity shop finds, and only £3, I was very happy that day, also great worn under jumpers because the collar detail is gorgeous!
Also we are now on instagram, would love if you could give us a follow, we are cositsthebeesknees :)
Big hugs, Paloma xxx

OOTD- Cause it's true, baby i'm howlin' for you...

'Howlin' For You' - The Black Keys

Hey everyone,
Sorry for the long break between  posts, we have both been lumbered with stacks of works and piles of essays, but we have a few posts lined up so keep checking the blog for more posts soon :)
Today, as a total coincidence, Paloma and I both worked the 'bun trend' and the 'collar trend', great minds think alike!
Top Tip for Buns:
-If you have thin hair, use a 'doughnut'/Bun Ring and wrap your hair around it.
-If you have thick hair, like both of us, put your hair into a high ponytail and twist your hair around the base of the pony, tie with a band, and pin in place, Voila :)
Paloma's outfit - Dress (worn under jumper) - Primark, Jumper- H&M, Tights- M&S, Wedges- Deichmann.
My Outfit- Jumper- H&M, Blouse (worn under jumper)- H&M, Studs-New Look, Leather Jacket- F&F, Trousers- New Look, Brogues- H&M.

Twist On The Trend - First Love, Last love, Only love, it's only love

1) Lizzie from Dust on the Ground, 2)Paloma from Cos It's the Bee's Knees
 3) Rachel from A Girl from the Countryside, 4) Jane from The Tale of Two Buttons

First Love- The Maccabees

Hey everyone!

Here is this week's Twist on the Trend (where a bunch of us bloggers style the same trend in different ways!). This weeks trend was Band tees, which I absolutely love! And looking at how well the other girls styled them, they are definitely a versatile item and a must have in any wardrobe! (and they have such good music taste!)
Paloma is wearing a T-shirt which she made herself using fabric pens. It has the lyrics on it from her favourite song, First Love by The Maccabees.
Vest top-Forever 21, Maxi skirt- Peacocks, Shoes- Primark.

Jess is wearing a Vaccines tshirt which she bought from their online merchandise store (it had a picture of the Vaccines on it and is from one of their tours...they are amazing!)
Top- Vaccines Merchandise, Trousers- New Look, Cardigan- River Island, Shoes- Primark.

Band t-shirts is a major trend this season. Whether it's Ramones, Nirvana or The Rolling Stones, vintage band t's are perfect for this chilly but not freezing weather, when you cant be bothered to make an effort but still want to look casual-cool. These can be teamed with anything from slouch jeans to maxi skirts depending on the look you're going for.
What are you waiting for???? Go out and get one as they NEVER go out of fashion :)

Loads of love, Jess and Paloma :) xxx
