Vote For Me on WHOY!

I've been playing around with my designing abilities on the very cool site...WHOY.
From what I've gathered so far, WHOY is a site that produces a crazy array of printed leggings. (And they are all extremely awesome) 

So what they're doing nowww is launching a competition for young designers such as myself to design as many pairs of leggings as they wish (with their own artworks). The designs with the most votes will be made and sold on the WHOY online shop! 

It really is great fun just designing some pairs, so do join, design and please vote for my designs!

Just click here...

Here are some designs I've made so far...
I've used all of my own photography and digital edits for these designs!

Top 5 eBay Buys!

So a few days ago I receive this very nice email from eBay congratulating me on my 4-year anniversary as a buyer on the site. Now to be honest I didn't even know that I'd been a member for that long! And it even made me feel a little old, but I couldn't forget all the amazing things I've found on eBay over the years! 

There is definitely a knack to eBay and you have to know where to look and what to look for. But after you've done your research it is very worth it.
Here are my top 5 eBay buys...

1. I seriously adore this bag! The design is not only adorable but quite different to a lot of high street pieces. Based on the picture the quality of material looks quite good and it generally seems like a rather unique bag! (I've just bought this!) Jiujusun Blue Horse Shoulder Bag, P+P £19.41 - BUY HERE
2. These skorts are adorable. They're not too short either which is always a plus for me. The design is very celebrity inspired and I've DEFINITELY not seen any skorts like these in the shops. (I bought these too!) Buzz_sale2011 Wrap Skort, P+P £6.98 - BUY HERE
3. I've been meaning to buy a pair of these for a while for the wet Autumn/Winter months to come. I think they're very cute and girly while suiting my rather boisterous style at the same time. Plus these shoes are normally pretty comfy too! Popshoes1 Retro Ankle Boots, P+P £22.95 - BUY HERE
4. This ring is really pretty and I think a great touch to a rather vintage inspired outfit. The turquoise and bronze go very well together and the bird design is lovely too. Specials-2010 Birds On Tree Ring, P+P £1.99 - BUY HERE
5. I've recently been seeing some jelly creations in the magazines all through the line-up to summer. What I haven't seen though, and what I actually love, are these jelly bags! They have a lovely opaque pouch inside and are decorated with lovely little jelly flowers. Amazing, I love it! Shanghai-magic-box Jelly Handbag, P+P £18.98 - BUY HERE

I hope you love my eBay picks! Let me know which are your favs!

Ella's Wishlist: A Gentleman Watch!

I keep coming across all sorts of watches really and what really seems to be trending is this VERY quirky moustache design! I think it's fun, lively and certainly lets anyone know that you're lighthearted and up for a laugh. 
It has a really nice tan leather strap which does compliment the gold very well, and almost give the watch an ironic professional feel. Really do love this one! And it really is just £8.99!

Guy Clothes That Girls Can Steal...

We all know that there are girls out there guilty of stealing their boyfriend's jumpers, shirts and whatever else...I certainly am. The 'boyfriend look' is certainly one that guys everywhere are aware of merely because of their clothes going missing! Its that baggy and casual look that girls love and I myself do love the androgynous appeal! 

Here are some pieces to please both you guys and gals...

1. You may have seen this tee on the site before, the reason its appeared again is because its a great find for both guys and girls! Its a gorgeous print and I'd wear this let alone my boyfriend. River Island Amsterdam Print Tee, £18.00 - BUY HERE
2. Although maybe slightly girly for a guy? I love this patterned t-shirt. Its different, jazzy and would look pretty cool on a hipster guy or as a casual tee on a girl. River Island Tapestry Print Tee, £18.00 - BUY HERE
3. This jumper is crazy but fun! Definitely more for the outlandish kind of guy, but as a male jumper for a girl I think it would work extremely well and I am VERY tempted. ASOS Banana Jumper, £30.00 - BUY HERE
4. Hats are pretty much for absolutely anyone. What designers think makes a hat particularly 'masculine' anyway I'll never know! But this is just nice and trendy for any guy or gal really. ASOS Bobble Beanie, £20.00 - BUY HERE
5. Absolutely love this jumper! The design is really cool. While being very suitable for a guy to where with any casual outfit, its also very androgynous and any girl could pull this off with some jeans or leggings to be honest. Bellfield Landscape Jumper, £40.00 - BUY HERE

There are SO many pieces out there in menswear that girls can very very easily pull off. What I say to girls is to branch out! Don't even just look at womenswear but at mens as well!

News Flash: Neon Wetsuits!

If, like me, you're crazy on swimming, surfing and all things water-sport. OR! You love a bit of brightness and maybe a bit of lycra as well! I genuinely have one perfect and incredibly cool news flash for you today!

So I was browsing the internet and came across the very chic and trendy Neon wetsuit company. A bit of an odd find I must admit, but their site is amazing and actually FUN (yes, fun) even if you're not buying anything! Let me give you a tour...

First off, there's tonnes of different style of wetsuits, including some two piece suits, swimming costumes and then the proper wetsuits. Not only are the designs on these pieces both wonderfully simple, they're also very striking and bold. Which is exactly what you want when you're showing off your crazy water moves! 
The uses for these suits don't even have to stop at water-sports! I can see them being used in gymnastics, gym sessions and EVEN maybe a leotard number for going out of the town...let me know what you think!

These are just a few examples of how cool these items look! The very best part of this company, though, is that not only are designs fantastic, you can customise your own colours. Let me demonstrate...

So here you can choose the different colours for various sections. I think it's absolutely brilliant and a great way to bring some personality to the clothes you buy! For just £100 on average per piece, its not that bad to have something original and different. 

These suits have to be my favourites though! 

What I love about this suit is that it's just so simple but bold! Not only are the colours lovely together, its powerful to look at, and for a competitive swimmer like myself that's what I like in a swimsuit. The suit is also made in a seamless fashion, making them ridiculously comfortable!

Now these pieces are certainly the unconventional choice for a swimmer, but they look very comfortable along with a lot of room for a manoeuvring swimmer! Plus! The patterns together are just great and ever so stylish!

If you love these suits just like I do, comment below and tell me what you think! How would you wear them unconventionally?
