The Winter Cape

DSCN0987

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. DSCN0988 DSCN0989 DSCN0990 DSCN0991 DSCN0992

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 2015

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. DSCN0940 DSCN0941 DSCN0942 DSCN0945

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.

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.

DSCN0859

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.

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!!

Summer Essential

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.
