It’s the end of October already! Halloween has been and gone and it’s nearly Christmas.
Some of these I bought at the end of September and have rediscovered and some are super recent purchases and a gift.
Mint Fudge Candle – The most sickeningly sweet mint smell that I can’t wait to light over Christmas. Mint is one of my favourite flavours and I snapped with up right away. From Home Sense.
Oola Rose Gold Terrarium – I’ve always wanted a terrarium like this, ideally I want to put a succulent inside but until then I can keep my little collection of glass stones there. From Joy
I’m sure you have seen this little necklace before but I just love wearing it. The gun metal colour the teeny tiny A, it’s just perfect for daily wear. From Fashionology
How To Be Adored, Caroline Cox – Coffee table books are my favourite type, something to flick through when you have a spare 10 mins. This book is full of great notes and tips. From Joy.
Chinese purse – I was very kindly given this from one of the Chinese girls in my class. I complimented her on her black floral version and when we came back after half term she presented me this gorgeous purse. The pattern is a famous Chinese painting if I remember correctly, red is a lucky colour in China and the knots that keep the purse closed are to protect your money. Never have I received anything so thoughtful and beautiful, thank you so much sue.
I hope you enjoyed the things I’ve been loving this past month, October has truly been great. Halloween was the perfect end to the month and I really can’t wait to see what November and December have in store for me.
Have a truly great day, Amelia XO
I didn’t plan on getting this dress, I was actually on the hunt for Brogan’s dress she wore in her weekly vlog a while ago (this one) but couldn’t find it, I did how ever find this beauty! It’s perfect for Christmas parties and dinners!
Can we just take a moment to look at these boots!! I’ve been looking for a pair of tan boots with a serious heel for quite a while and Just Fab had a promotion on which meant these boots ( and another pair) came home with me. They are such an easy boot to pair with anything in my wardrobe.
Dress – River Island
Boots – Just Fab
Earrings – New Look (love these)
Hope everyone is having a great November, Amelia XO
Halloween is one of my favourite celebrations, I love being able to dress up and decorate the house. Every year my cousin comes over with her friends to a little spooky adventure. This year we did a treasure hunt in the garden, with a piñata spider at the end!!
I thought I’d share with you a few sneak peaks of the new kitchen and dining room, and show you the Halloween decorations.
I can’t wait to share with you some of my favourite A/W15 looks so stay tuned!
I think I’ve found the perfect black jumper for winter! (I know that’s a big statement) The fit is perfect, it’s warm ( no need to layer up) the little slits al the sides add a little detail the high neck. There is no frills to this jumper, it does it’s job and it does it every well. I love pairing it with a bright shirt to make a statement.

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.
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.
white vases – IKEA spray painted | fake peonies – Range
Till next time XO Amelia
If all else fails wear an LBD you really can’t go wrong. I wore this skater to a friends birthday the other week and let me tell you, it’s the perfect transition from S/S to A/W. Paired with nude heels to make my legs longer!

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!

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.
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. 🙁

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!!
