It’s become a tradition for me and Stacey to head over to Sprinkles in Landsdowne for a little girlie chin wag. After my usual choice of a scoop of mint and pistatio, we walked into Bournemouth centre. We were greeted by the most glorious winter light display.
Aren’t these Snapchat photos just a testament to how serious our conversations are? What can I say, ice cream is my everything.
As you walk through the main path in the gardens your way is lit by giant snowflakes.
Every now and again you’d walk up upon lit door frames. If I wasn’t so chicken and super aware of all the people around I would have jumped at the chance to stand inside the doorframe and posed to my hearts content (next time) we walked over to the out door bar, but it was rammed to the rafters so moved on.
I can’t wait to go back for anything exploration and adventure, maybe I’ll even try my hand at the ice skating, maybe?
I wore this to my mums Christmas party, she hosts one every year and it’s always a hoot.
I loved wearing kimonos during the summer but thought they would be silly in winter. How wrong was I, they are the perfect party dress coverup. I’ve been listening to Fleetwood Mac non-stop, which inspired the accessorise. Also I’ve found that I hate wearing tights, they are so uncomfortable.
This winter I think I’m the busiest I’ve even been with work, college and parties all over December. One of my favourite looks to meet the girlies in is this little skirt and these boots. I’ve mentioned these boots a while ago and I can’t stop loving them. But favourite part of this outfit is definitely this Oasis sparkly top, I love the cowl neck back and the bar across the back. it’s such a great Christmas piece that I’ve been longing to wear. I bought the shirt at last years Clothes Show live ( I’m going to this years Clothes Show!) You could wear this Christmas day and eat everything on the table and still look great.
This cape is everything to me this season. I love swaddling myself in soft warm fabric to keep out the winters wind. The colours are perfect for pairing with anything, winter dresses, trousers, blue jeans. It just works.
I hope the weather sorts its self out soon, so I can take some outfit photos outside without blowing away.
I can’t believe is November and I never got around to showing you the photos from my dad’s wedding!!! My brother and I drove to a gorgeous place just outside St Agnes, to a beautiful place called Rose in Vale Country House Hotel where we celebrated my Dad and Lisa’s wedding.
my bridesmaids dress is from – Dessy but I had it fitted at The Bridal House Cornwall who are the nicest ladies ever, super friendly and the bridal house is so beautiful.
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.
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.
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
