berry burgundy booties

29 October 2014

Following my craving for thigh boots a couple of weeks ago I bought a pair of low heeled over knee boots by Ravel with beautiful gold piping and buckle details, I of course bought them from my go-to shoe store, Spartoo. They arrived promptly and I've been wearing them almost every other day since they came into my life so I can't wait to show you in an outfit post.

craving: new season coats

26 October 2014

The best winter coats around are beautifully structured, warm and evidently cosy and the high street stores are littered with gorgeous pieces that promise so much. I've searched through my favourite clothing shops to create a collection of on trend overcoats which I would just love to own. They're all looking seriously good this year so it wasn't easy to limit myself to just 4 options for each style I crave.

clinique tinted moisturiser review

25 October 2014

I've been converted to a new foundation or rather a tinted moisturiser, the Clinique Moisture Surge is the first Clinique base product I have tried and I absolutely love it. It smells good, feels creamy and super soft on application and sits lightly on my skin. I use shade 03 which a very helpful consultant at Boots matched me on way back when I bought this little bottle a couple of months ago and today I bought a new pot because I can finally feel my first purchase running out.

craving: christmas jumpers

23 October 2014

I'm fully aware that it's only October but as I've mentioned already, I've started my christmas shopping and as you've probably noticed people are already counting down the weekends and the fridays until the big day. That's a little bit crazy but personally I love christmas so as the christmas jumpers are weaning themselves onto the shelves they are creeping onto my wishlist and even gift lists!

my first book giveaway NOW CLOSED

21 October 2014

I haven't given away a book before (let alone 5!) but it's only recently that I started talking about the books I'm reading on my blog and as I mentioned in my previous post; I'd like to discuss them more. This month I have my head in three books, one of which is this one by Rick Riordan and subsequently I have 5 copies of it to giveaway.


autumn / winter at new look

12 October 2014


Another autumn and winter style blog post, I just can't get my head out of the misty autumn clouds! This time I've focused in on New Look and what their collection has to offer the trends that everyone is shouting about. There are so many wishlist-worthy pieces on the New Look website that I'll admit once again it was difficult to avoid collaging 70% of the site. So I've picked out just 26 of my favourite, floral, khaki, layered and check pieces for you to see including burgundy boots, a floral midi or two and a check blazer.

feelunique beauty haul

11 October 2014


Does it count as a haul if you order four things? I don't know that it does but either way this is what I'm calling my latest Feelunique order. I've been wanting an excuse to buy things on Feelunique because, well just because I wanted new pretty beauty products in my life okay.. I wanted to try a couple of things I haven't had a chance to before and I needed a new makeup bag. Two weeks ago Zoe gave me the most perfect excuse by launching her Zoella Beauty range (thank you Zoe) and so I popped a few things in my basket and proceeded to checkout as quickly as possible - here's what I bought:

my harry potter studio tour experience

3 October 2014


Exactly 2 months today I was lucky enough to be whisked away to the WB Studio Tour by my lovely boyfriend. I was incredibly excited as I'd wanted to visit for so so long and he surprised me with a day trip for my 24th birthday.

SCA Volvo Ocean Race Team

2 October 2014



Equality has always been a hot topic of late and actually it should be spoken about and actioned upon more than it is. Since Emma Watson's recent speech at the UN (if you haven't heard it where have you been?!) it seems that more people are talking about gender equality which is great. I was especially inspired by this article talking about a 15 year old boy's letter then following this as well as other examples of equality approval from a variety of male and female celebrities I found out about an all woman team that has entered the Volvo Ocean Race this year.

boohoo autumn clothing haul

1 October 2014


I'm restocking my autumn wardrobe following my clear out earlier on in the year and with my eye being drawn to Boohoo's website more and more I decided to go for a bit of a fall haul. As you can see from my Boohoo wishlist that I posted last week there are still a lot of things that I'd like to get hold of but this is a good start I think. :)
