My Autumn Boots Need-list

20 September 2015

Fall is upon us! As one of my favourite seasons I look forward to autumn shopping because it's a brilliant excuse to stock up on new boots and grow my collection. The ankle boots, calf boots and knee high boots obsession lives on and I'm convinced that I won't be happy until I have a wall full of them! Quite literally if my interior plans work out. :)  I realised yesterday that I had put 9 pairs of boots in my shopping cart on Spartoo with the view to purchasing them all. I know that is pretty ridiculous but I can't help myself, especially when they're such bargain finds.

I require (yes I actually NEED) a new pair of dark brown boots suitable for both work and casual weekend wear which is why this blog posts is more of a 'need-list' than a 'wishlist'. Ideally they need to sit high enough up my calf to cover the base of my jeans but I wouldn't class them as calf boots necessarily. They need to be a cross between calf boots and ankle boots in order to be my perfect 'everyday' shoes so I've been having a good hunt around my favourite online shoe store.

The problem is, when you browse a website that has so many pairs (over 25,000 shoes just for women) it's easy to get distracted from your mission...

outfit: denim, rose gold & a cami dress

31 August 2015

Sometimes the most simple of outfits are the best and I'm definitely feeling that with this basic ensemble. Featuring an lbd, denim jacket and easy sandals you can't really get much more back to basics than what I'm wearing today which is great because it's a weirdly overcast yet warm day here in Devon.

craving: succulent khaki

30 August 2015

I fancy khaki. There, I said it. Khaki green plants and fluffy green cushions right down to fitted midi skirts and shimmering nail polish, I want them all on and around me. :D

Because of this I've put together a little wishlist, much smaller than my usual bulk of products that I use to create a collage and I've also put it together in a different style, I hope you like!

My house remodelling inspiration

24 August 2015

I'm really into interiors at the moment so I've been reading lots of blogs, pinning ev-e-ry-thing and drooling over inspirational sites. I find myself shopping more for the home than for myself which is really odd but I kinda like it!  I think I've got to the point of my life where because the mortgage of our house is finally going through we can actually start thinking about what we really want our home to be, too look like and to feel like. At the moment it's just the house we live in, the house Shaun's grandparents bought and lived it when it was built and that his mum grew up in from about the age of 7. It's lovely but there are changes, or rather 'improvements' that we'd like to make, not only to bring it up to date and maintain the house and all of it's amenities but also to modernise it in terms of the decor. We have redecorated 3 rooms so far (though something has to be done about the wardrobe in our room - Shaun picked that by himself!).

We're currently in the middle of sorting the bathroom out and next will be my wardrobe room. :D
Because of this I have been scouring the interwebs for decoration ideas only to find some amazing sites and images that have been so inspirational to my final idea. Below are a few images I've come across that have ultimately inspired me to decorate my dressing room a certain way.


delivery for milo!

10 August 2015

Milo gets all the love lately. When I pulled this box out in front of him last weekend he knew that it was a package for him so he bounded towards me to try and take it!

I guess if I'd let him have the box then it would have been shredded on the spot, which would've been funny to watch but I didn't fancy cleaning it up so Shaun restrained him while I opened it instead! Once open Milo's head was straight in there and he bolted off with the only soft toy that was inside.. I don't think he cared that I needed a photo first so Shaun and I then had to play a game of chase around the front garden just to try and get the toy back for a second. :/

Shopping appropriate and gorgeous underwear

11 July 2015

Shopping gorgeous and appropriate underwear It's true to me that my lingerie drawers hold the most important elements to my wardrobe because without starting with good undies my outfit is screwed. It's not just about them being good though, both the bra and bottoms need to be appropriate to the outfit, so if you're wearing a nude cotton vest you're likely to need a light coloured bra underneath. And if you're rocking a beautifully fitted bodycon dress you wouldn't (well, you shouldn't) wear a pair of badly fitting pants because it will look very unflattering plus if they fit badly in the first place I imagine they're very uncomfortable.

craving: wedding guest shoes

6 July 2015

We're well into wedding season now, with ceremonies going on left right and centre of me, there's so much to celebrate and so many outfits to think about! Shoes have been my biggest fret whilst getting ready in recent months. I've had a right mare trying to pick out wedding appropriate formal shoes because I have just one choice really; black Kurt Geiger peep toe bow sandals, that's it. Any of my other heels are either more suitable for a clubbing night out and have actually been worn for such an occasion meaning they're a bit roughed up, or other shoes I have are chunky heeled or platform wedges more suitable for a casual event than a wedding. So as usual I've spent some time doing a spot of shopping for my favourite thing. :)
