Friday Favourites

Hello darlings,

Here are a few things that I have been loving recently…

I think this dress from Next is so cute! Wear it now with tights and then all the way through the spring/summer just with ballet flats.

I think that this bag from Accessorize is perfect for the A/W with its being this gorgeous deep burgundy purple colour.

I bought this Barry M nail varnish very recently and although granted one may class it as more of a summer shade I really like it. It’ll be gracing my tootsies tonight.

Marks & Spencer jeggings- although the word, and in fact the thought of these, is hardly desirable I have to say that they are my go to pair of jeans. They are so comfortable and I think that with the elastic waistband hidden they look just as good as normal jeans too. I got my second pair today.

Bates Motel aka my new Netflix favourite. I have been enthralled by this recently. It’s quirky, edgy and a little creepy.

Top 5: Blanket Ponchos

Frankly this season’s must have, the blanket poncho, makes me a very happy bunny! They are so cosy and yet chic at the same time; for me this is absolute perfection. I have not stopped wearing mine since I bought it. So I’ve put together my top five favourites…

Shoe of the Week

Hello darlings,

I knew full well that if I looked at the new arrivals for L K Bennett something was going to catch my eye. It ended up being these beautiful heels

I love how ladylike they are! They’ll look beautiful with dresses, midi and pencil skirts and even jeans. They seem like the perfect autumnal pair of heels; one thing I know for sure is that I’ll be lusting over them all winter long.

LFW SS15 Dream Outfit

Whilst I spend my time watching all of the live streams that I can catch of LFW at the moment, I have been dreaming up my ideal outfit for rubbing shoulders with the FROW elite.

I went for something classy with a serious statement jacket to hopefully create an unforgettably ladylike look…

Shoe of the Week

Hello darlings,

As soon as I saw these shoes from Next I fell for them…

IMG_3837.JPG

I just think that they are so handsome! I have always loved the sophistication of navy and black together, plus with the mix of textures, I think that they’re stunning. They are the perfect addition to a winter wardrobe.

Little Body Shop Haul

IMG_3772.JPG

Over the last month or so I seem to have had an influx of Body Shop products in my daily routine, but hey I’m definitely not complaining!

Pomegranate Cream Cleanser

This cream cleanser is an absolute delight. I actually hadn’t realised it was meant as an anti-aging product, I bought it purely because I loved the idea of pomegranate with which I wasn’t disappointed as it smells divine, but it has been wonderfully gentle on my skin; what more could I ask for?

Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder

I’d seen so many blog posts and vlogs (especially Estée from Essie Button) raving about this bronzer that when I saw it I just had to treat myself to it. Apart from the very pleasing aesthetics, I really have been enjoying this bronzer. It simply adds a little bit of colour (which I greatly need)- splendid!

Instablur

Again I’d heard so much about this little number. Initially I wasn’t amazed but I’d had such high expectations that I think I had to readjust what I thought it would do and now I’m pretty happy with it. The pores are there you are just less inclined to see them. As for the texture it is a slightly peculiar poweredy gel but I quite like it. All in all, if you don’t get too sucked into the hype this is a lovely little thing.

Eyeliner in Purple

I have been wearing my brown eyeliner far more than my black recently for a softer day look, however I thought that purple may be a nice change. It’s a good eyeliner, highly pigmented and long lasting although I don’t think that it’s anything to write home about.

 Chamomile Cleansing Oil

For a person who suffers from dry skin this is great; it removes my make up perfectly and nourishes my skin at the same time. It has really helped hydrate my skin and the chamomile aspect is gorgeous- a stunner!

Style inspiration: Emma Watson

When I was growing up I always wanted to be like Hermoine. I really admired the fact that she was a smart girl who really knew who she was. Yet now it is no longer the fictional character she played, but the woman herself Miss Emma Watson who continues to inspire me as to the kind of person I want to be. She is intelligent, driven, fair and stands up for herself and others continually with grace and dignity. An added bonus to this is that she has a stunning sense of style; I love her preppy, classic and sleek look.

Shoe of the Week

Hello darlings,

Now that it is September I feel like it is officially acceptable to start talking about my winter wardrobe. So I am featuring my first pair of winter boots (which I actually bought last week); these darlings from Marks & Spencer

IMG_3822.JPG

They are super comfortable and will definitely be my day to day footwear in the coming months. Simple, practical and oh so versatile- perfect for the more wintery months.

The Next Edit

IMG_3798.JPG

Cape

I always think that capes look so sophisticated and this one reminds me of a Blair Waldorf number circa season 1 and 2. Thus I absolutely adore it!

LBD

Where oh where can any girl go wrong with a little black dress? Especially in the more wintery months. Whether it’s for work, the weekend or the Christmas party this is one versatile number!

Jumper

I adore really thick jumpers; they are much needed if you’re a cold fish like me. With jeans and a pair of knee high boots this will always be a winner.

Blouse

Chic as always and a gem for those Christmassy nights out.

Pencil Skirt

This skirt is such a beautiful colour, blush pink is always one of my favourites. The style is equally gorgeous so all in all it’s pretty darn perfect!

Clutch

I have a clutch very similar to this and find that it brightens up so many outfits- a necessity for the dull winter months.

Grey Skirt

Now this skirt is not my usual thing but I think it’s super cute and it reminds me of something Olivia Palermo would wear; and that lady never seems to get it wrong. (Check out what makes her one of my style inspirations here)

Lace Panel Blouse

Now this however is something I am very much accustom to. A lace blouse in a deep red colour ticks all of my boxes.

Culottes

I haven’t quite decided yet whether I’m going to partake in this season’s culottes trend, when I was younger I had a beautiful pair that were my prized possession, but I know these are where I’ll start if I decide to take the plunge.

Shoe of the Week

Hello darlings,

I came across this brand of shoes, Chatelles, on twitter the other day. So I went across to their website and instantly fell head over heels for their super cute range of loafers. My personal favourites are these little beauties

IMG_3780.JPG

I have been loving orange recently and think that these could spice up any outfit, making jeans and a white blouse look effortlessly chic. I also love the fact that you can personalise them by adding coloured tassels of your choice or even your initials; but I think I’d stick to my plain, yet far from boring, pair. I can feel that I will be lusting over these for quite a while!
