Outfit - Cardigan, Necklace & Socks - Primark | Top & Tights - H&M | Shorts - Vintage Levis | Black Ring - Vintage | Boots - Office
Face - Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer, Clinique Blended in 0.2 | Cheeks - MAC Melba | Eyes - inner half - MAC Blanc Type, outer corner MAC Cranberry | Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner Black

As you can probably tell, I'm still digging the vintage hair styles, and thanks to this lovely lady Natalie on youtube, I've found some super simple styles, such as the one above, I can do in about 10mins in the morning - perfect!  What do you guys think? 

I'm currently battling my way through a cold at the moment, I lost my voice and sound quite husky at the moment - not sexy husky, more like manly husky! Not good.  It also meant I missed the Motel Rocks Christmas Party on Monday - did anyone go?  How was it?  I bet it was AMAZING, damn you illness!!!!!!!
I can't believe Christmas is almost upon us, I'm getting super excited especially now Christmas markets are starting pop up all around London, all we need now is the snow!  What are you guys getting excited about?

changing of mind

Cardigan - Primark | Top, Skirt & Tights - H&M |  Rhino Ring - Rokit | Necklace - Miss Selfridge | Shoes - Clarks

I loved this skirt when I first bought it with a cute ruffle waist, pockets and belt hoops, but now I look at it and think it's quite frumpy and long.  

I don't want to discard it as a black skirt will always come in handy, but I feel I need to do something to it, maybe to shorten it - I'm just not sure what it needs, what do you guys think?

I do however love my shiny shoes!

A little while ago there was an awesome promotion on VoucherCodes which gave you 25% off any purchase at Clarks, so I took full advantage and bought me these beauties, and the most comfortable ankle boots ever which I'll have to show you soon.  I've seen these brogues in a dark maroon colour too which are also gorgeous, I've been tempted to add them to my purchase list, but don't know if that's just too many shiny brogues for one girl?

I've woken up with a cold this morning, so feeling rather sorry for myself and drinking lots of soup - how's everyone elses weekend going?

As promised, here is a little my little haul from Primark the other week.  Nothing too exciting but a few nice finds.

Picked this basic top up for £4, it's perfect layer for the cold, thinking I can wear this with pretty much anything such as my high-waisted shorts to my woolen skirt.

Another basic layer for £2.50, nothing special, but very handy.

Some cosy leg wear for the Winter months.  I just can't get enough of long socks, I have a whole drawer full of long socks and leg warmers, they're so comfy and look super cute with boots.  Anyone else have an unhealthily large collection of long socks or is that just me?

And now for the star find of my shopping trip ...

This super sweet shirt with the prettiest collar for the bargain price of £10.

I am totally obsessed with collars at the moment, if it's got a collar, I'm hooked, especially if it's as pretty as this one.

Considering it's getting colder, I'm actually surprised there are quite so many sleeveless shirts in the shops, but hey I'm not complaining, as this would look great under a chunky knit jumper with the pretty collar poking out during the cold months, and perfect with a pair of shorts when it starts to get warmer.  

What do you think of this little haul post?  Would you like to see more like this?

⚇ I see what you see ⚇

Cardigan, Slip, Tights, Socks & Hair Bump - Primark | Dress - H&M | Boots - Office

This dress is years and years old, but I always find myself coming back around to it, it's just really fun and looks like lots of tiny eyes peeking out from the dark.

I've downloaded a budget app the other week because I seem to be spending money like water and it just has to stop!  All was going well until .... I walked past Primark.  Now although I seem to have quite a few bits from Primark, I'm not actually the biggest fan, it's like a mass jumble sale, sizes are ALWAYS random, and most importantly, it's actually getting more pricey for what it is.  What do you guys think?  Do you want to see a little haul post up on the blog?

I'm also loving vintage/retro hair styles at the moment, and the hair bump (which is basically a clip with sponge attached) is the perfect tool to help add a little extra volume, and it's only £1 from Primark - bargain!  What do you guys think?

PS. don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY - not long left!

☾ Dark Days ☾

Top - H&M | Skirt - Monki | Tights, Socks, Necklace & Ring - Primark | Boots - Office

Winter is really starting to creep in, it's getting really cold outside and it always seems to be dark - it's dark when I leave the house and it's dark when I come home.  But all is not lost, I think the Autumn/Winter wardrobe is one of my favourites, what with all the layers, tights and rich colours.  It also gives me a perfect excuse to pull out my warm sheepskin coat.  What's your favourite season?

Has anyone seen Skyfall yet?  The perks of working in the my industry is that I managed to bag myself a ticket to the cast and crew screening before the UK premier, the downside being that the screenings are usually really early on the weekends.  Now I'm not the biggest Bond fan, but this was a great movie, just the right balance of action and comedy and really bringing it back to old school Bond - not to mention the eye candy which is Q.  What's you thoughts?

I also missed all the fireworks this weekend, did you guys get to see any?
