Autumn and Winter Scents

DSCN0857

All the weather gets colder and colder I find myself reaching for scents more and more. I love the smell of a fire when it’s freezing outside, the smell of hot chocolate in a coffee shop. These scents above have been my top 6 scents this A/W15.

DSCN0858

Daisy Marc Jacobs – The classic everyday perfume that I was gifted for Christmas. I get nostalgic when I wear this. Sweet and floral but not sickening.

Orange Grove – White Company – I picked this up last month and have been spritzing all over my room in the morning to freshen the air. A crisp light scent.

Yves Saint Laurent – Opium This miniature bottle is my Christmas part perfume, gone are the light florals of summer and day time. This perfume is more sophisticated and refined.

Chloé – Another daily perfume not as light as Daisy, this is more of a lunch date perfume. The notes of this are hard to pin point, a little mysterious.

Ted Baker body spray. pink is a sickening sweet affair of mango, musk, patchouli and neroli. My favourite of course is the Mint green. A delicate blend of violet, cherry, vanilla, peach and amber.

Both are great stocking fillers and ideal the throw in you handbag also £2.50 a pop!

Hope you enjoyed looking thought my A/W15 scents, I’d love to know what your go to perfumes and smells are this year.

One of this seasons trends is fur bags, and i’m totally onboard with that. I love faux fur things, this bag is perfect. Would you know it’s actually an iPad case!! I never use it for that but I love it as a purse. Metallic details are my favourite thing right now, nails, rings, shoes, makeup!

Truro: Sam’s In The City

The first in a series of wedding posts, if you didn’t know my dad is getting married in Cornwall this weekend. So my brother and I are over in Truro to get celebrating. One of this first celebrations is a girls dinner at Sam’s in the City.

I went for the Chicken and Bacon main. I never go for salad or anything with green in it, but this was totally worth it. The dressing was deliciously sticky and bacon salty and the salad crisp and light.

DSCN0720-001

It’s only right after salad to have cheese cake right? This whole dinner is filled with things i never like to eat, and I’m not a fan of cheese cake at all. This is the New York cheese cake with a scoop of ice cream. Caramel sauce, sweet berries and rich cheesecake, delicious!

Of course the only place with any sort of lighting was the bathroom. 🙁

Winter Style

I thought there would be a transition between summer and Autumn, turns out one day it’s glorious sunshine the next its torrential rain. Typical British weather! Though it does mean that I can start to work in my winter wardrobe.

I’ve never worn a turtle neck before, I always thought that I had to much in that chest area for it good. But this baggy drop sleeved one is perfect. paired with high waisted black skinnies it’s a perfect casual outfit. Of course I had to wear my Topshop orange flats!!

Fancy Popcorn

I’m a true lover of jewellery and I try and find pieces that are stand out, something a little different, a little more then throw away jewellery. While looking over on Wolf & Badger I fell in absolute love with Glenda Lopez’s Fancy Popcorn collection. It’s safe to say that money left my account and a few days later a parcel arrived at my door.DSCN0603

DSCN0605

I went for the Green piece of enamel popcorn on a gold chain, because it reminded me of an abstract flower and it amused me greatly to wear popcorn. I wish it had arrived when I went out to see Straight Outta Compton ( amazing film btw, even if you’re not a fan of NWA) popcorn at the movies.

I wasn’t to sure on the length of the chain, I’m not really into short necklaces or chokers, but i love how it sits just in-between my clavicles.The tiny pop of colour means I can wear it with anything. I wear this little piece of popcorn all the time, I get so many compliments. I might get it in other colours too. To be honest I want the whole collection.

love XO

Looks: Pink Eyes

Pink  is one of my favourite eye shadow hues out there. For a natural pared back look I go for matte and nude, for an evening out a bright vibrant pop.

DSCN0591

DSCN0593The pink in this ELF palette is shimmer central, I love working this into a smokey eye. My dark green eyes are the perfect combo with a pink smokey eye. This is the best for going out!

DSCN0594

My daily eye look is a little bit sixties and adding this Urban Decay eye shadow in ABC Gum is the perfect soft matte edition. This is such a light nude that I add a little uplifting socket colour. Pat the Urban Decay pink all over the lid then go into the socket with a shimmer eyeshadow in a similar colour, maybe the L’oreal Colour Appeal – Platinum Beige.

DSCN0595Most of my eye shadows are baked so to work with a cream shadow is something I’m still getting to grips with. Cargo Cosmetics – Suited To A Tea. The pallete double ended brush is great. The defined end is great for precision application, I’ve worked a pink eyeliner into my makeup with the colour Macaroon. Or the larger end for an all over eye shadow.

DSCN0598I think I may dabble in a bit of purple soon. Hope I don’t fall into the trap of the lilac 90’s vibe.

Summer Essential

DSCN0535-001

DSCN0536-001I think this is my ‘BBQ At a Friends’ uniform, no that I go to friends BBQ’s all the time. But if I did.

Any opportunity to wear heels and statement earrings. I’ve been lusting over tassel earrings for ages, after seeing other bloggers rock them, I took the plunge with these yellow beaded ones.

DSCN0540-001DSCN0541-001I want the pattern of this top on everything!! A loose cami top with fitted jeans are a staple for every girl, right? DSCN0549DSCN0550DSCN0551New look are really my favourite place to get shoes, where else can you buy affordable, brown suede, gladiator wedges. I mean really they are so on point with their shoes. DSCN0555Also couldn’t resist these flowers, they look really cute around a messy bun.

Fashion Memoirs

Sharing one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done with you on the blog today.

One of the most exciting things I’ve ever done, is go to London Fashion Week s/s 2013.  I’ve always wanted to go so when I got tickets to the Simone Rocha show at Somerset House I was knocked sideways with excitement.

Back then I was borrowing my mums point and shoot camera and didn’t really have a clue about cameras or how to try and change settings for lighting. These photos aren’t the best quality but I love them.

20131004-212512

Can you believe that I sat one row away from John Rocha!! Such a fan girl moment, I texted my mum and couldn’t help shaking with excitement.

20131004-212540 20131004-212614

The photo quality is super cringe worthy! I’m pretty sure it’s all the adrenaline of being at London Fashion Week, being at an amazing show, sitting so close to John Rocha making them blurry.

Lets talk about the looks: Feminine looks given masculine edge. knotted mohawks, chunky shoes, thigh cut outs relaxed waist lines. A lot of black which i really loved, the light reflecting of the ruffles the pop socks with pearls on. The music reminded me of Daft Punk and I was in love with the whole spectacle.

I hope to share with you more of my fashion memoirs and highlights.

Oranges

DSCN0421-001I love bright colours but never really liked to wear bright orange, that all changed when I saw these Topshop flats the other day. I posted a picture of me trying on the blue ones maybe 6 months ago, on Instagram, but never bought them. I wasn’t going to miss them second time around. They were in the sale too!!
