Primark Store Opening - Monks Cross York

Primark York Store Opening

As a blogger this was possibly one of the most exciting things i’ve been involved in. When I received the email inviting me to the new Primark store, my mouth dropped open and I danced around my room whilst Cassie looked on alarmed that I had finally lost it. 

Mainly for 2 reasons.

1) The people of York and the surrounding area have been waiting for a Primark store FOREVER

2) And I freaking LOVE Primark #sorrynotsorry.

I was invited to have a “first glimpse” tour of the store with local radio stations and news reporters, which then led to a speech with a video presentation and the the cutting of the ribbon and waiting for the first customers to be let in. I was sat in the very nicely decked out staff break out area wanting to be taken on the tour of the store by the area manager sounded by breakfast pastries and other refreshments with the room filled with an excited buzz, being asked questions by local reporters and as I gushed about the excitement of what the store opening meant to me. #fangirl

We were shown round the new store, with a detailed and excited explanation of product placements, what was going to be big in the summer fashion wise and what had gone into the renovations of one of the most highly anticipated stores, and guys let me tell you that place is HUGE. I drooled ever the home department, all the love for their bedding and fairy lights. Afterwards we were taken to watch the speeches and the videos, then the staff chanted excitidly before the ribbon was cut and customers poured in which I joined to snag myself some bits [of course] I had eyed up whilst being shown around. 

I’d like to thank Primark so so much for letting me a part of something so exciting and for gifting me a gift card that I had fun spending in the new store ;) and of course YouTube haul to follow!

Summer Staple

Motel Stars and Moon Dress

Firstly i’d like to apologise for the dodgy exposure/colours of this photo set. I stupidly handed my camera over to James in the wrong setting after filing a ‘’get ready with me’’ type video to ease me back into YouTube and well er yeah, this was the end result.

Knowing full well last Thursday would be the last of the sun we would see for a while I took full advantage, thats right legs out and NO JACKET, daring for someone that lives in the UK where it rains 97% of the time summer or not. I had booked the day off as it was my little Jim Jams birthday so we could go off and do something together. Turns out we did the same thing as last year, go to York, go to Cosmos an all you can eat and do some window shopping I guess we’re just creatures of habit. I dug around my wardrobe for my most fave ever ever Motel dress and styled it up with a very 90s crop and my alien denim vest i’ve practically had glued to my back excluding work time [shame] At first I was little unsure about my choice of footwear, but hey it was hot and these are literally the only summer worthy shoes I own. Everything was a miss match anyway so why not throw in a little more un-matching? It’s more fun that way. 

I feel like these poses are very blogger 101, swinging my Lush bag full swag around whilst being snapped away at by my boyfriend/personal photographer paid for with double cheese burgers from Maccies.

Do forgive me for this being short and sweet, its just that i’ve got a spreadsheet to go back to that i’ve been staring at all day and I promised my manager i’d have done for by tonight and well my heads pretty much burnt out from already staring at it for the best part of 8 hours and I really need the cash.

Laundry day

Alternative summer style

I seemed to have slipped out of blogging and gone back to my old ways when I first started up this little space of mine, perhaps only blogging once maybe even twice a week if you guys were lucky. Lucky being used her loosely guys. But for some reason life is so hectic at the moment and i’m so drained from it leaving me with little time to prep and update my blog as frequently as I would like to. Such first world. Then the guilt comes and well yeah I feel all kinds of bad.

So the plan is this week to get two post out for you lovely lot and heres hoping that this time next week i’ll have got my shit together and normal service will resume on Iamfoxxtailz.

Eat.Sleep.Breath. my blog

Again, just how I like it. 

Hey remember that beaut weather we had way back when? I know I can hardly remember it myself. I decided to crack out the jazziest trousers I own and don them with my lucky cat tacky T I picked up and brought it all the way back from Japan last year. I fell in love with what seemed to be a vintage inspire design, whilst mentally prepping outfits I could style this beauty up with I knew I had to have it. Crazy how creatively hits when shopping, any excuse to spend money on novelty cat shirts. 

To make this outfit a little more then a standard tshirt and jazzy pants combo, I decided to tuck the top into my bra [lol] and make it into a crop to style it up a bit. Kinda like that thing you did at primary school with your school top where you looped it at the front of your top and pulled it trough 
and your mam would go bat shit crazy cos you stretched it all out again #sozLiz  

Obviously in a bid to not make all my blog pictures samey the best place to take pictures was my utility/outhouse where I hung out with my washer and dryer for this set. Cass decided to make a guest appreance and be all adorbz and will i’m expecting her to invoice me for her time soon. Payment in dreamies is her preference. 
Soz about the cigs, they’re the result of one too many house parties we have and well I don’t smoke [gross] and refuse to pick ‘em up ;).

She’s American


Hi yes Hello It’s me, i’m back after a blogging break and pals let me tell you, it felt so freaking Gooood. 
So, how’ve you been? I’ve been alright, actually i’ve been great but now its back to business or erm something to that effect. . . .

~ so ~

 Pretty sure, like 99.9% of Brits are all the BBQ’d sunburnt and ciderd out, squeezing in every single summer themed activity in cos ya know its Britain and its grey perhaps from one week a year, mebs even a cheeky mid day through the week when where all at work. I was definitely one of them, I love the heat I thrive in it. Any excuse to be colourful and spend all day outdoors. 

Its also the perfect chance to give your legs the first outing of the year [or well it was for me anyway] and experiment with new summer clothes whilst simultaneously low key loathing the fact it means I’ve gotta start shaving more then just a lil’ above my ankle. Such first world I know. This weekend I was very luckily invited to the new Primark store opening at Monks Cross, I got a tour before it opened to the public and errythang but i’ll save all that ramble for another post.  Obviously I indulged a lil’ in a Primark haul because it would be rude not to and I literally can’t walk by a store without going in and buying something, it’s like i’m magnetised to it or something something who knows. Amongst the the bargains I picked up was this 90’s feel summer dress complete with lace trim. 

*I love that*

1) IT ACTUALLY COVERS MY BUTT YEAH

2) It kinda looks like a nighty?

3) Its all kinds go grunge summer perfection

4) It was only a tenner.

I also like I can do my signature shirt under the dress thing perfectly as i’m pretty sure this dress was made to be styled like that, well it is in my head. The print of it makes me feel all summer-y and lovely and with the lace trim it still brings all the grunge/90s vibes another element I just love to channel. 

Primark Grunge summer dress














How would you of styled this dress? Did you like grunge vibes?

This weekend I did nothing and I loved it.


This weekend I did no blog prep and I didn’t feel bad. Usually I would of used a 3 day weekend to my full advantage, doing all the blogger things and being all the blogger things and again I didn’t feel bad.

I’ve not been posting as frequently because . . . . I just haven’t wanted to. I haven’t wanted to put together outfits, I haven’t wanted to think of content, a new way of sharing a post. I haven’t wanted to try and be witty. Try being the key word in the sentence guys.

What I have wanted to do is spend more time with James, my friends and I’ve really enjoyed doing nothing, slowing down and spending time on my personal hobbies.

This weekend, James’ best friend visit from Manchester, we then went to our other friends house where we lived, decorated his house for when he came with birthday balloons and banners and shouted surprise when he came home with his girlfriend. We drank, laughed and danced. I may have drunk a bit too much, I may have even decked it and I may have woken up with carpet burn on my face because of it. . . . [You’re 26 Jess] we longed out ordered take out and watched The Big Bang Theory all day.  I was grateful for my friends, how loving and caring they are. We also built some bridges.

I also conquered my manual focus fear with my camera, I learnt about apature. I walked round Howden, where I live with James and took a ton of pictures, I felt like myself I didn’t feel like I was forcing anything. The shots aren’t perfect, I look forward to that journey but I taught myself a new skill.

I liked this weekend.

And now because I have forgotten about my blog and not fretted I’ve had creative block and focused on other things I’ve wanted to do inspirations coming back.
