tartan scarfs and red lipstick

Hello again:) I have been posting a lot recently to put off doing any of my college work. This cosy weather makes me want to stay in bed all day and do nothing at all. 

Yesterday me and my younger sister Amber went shopping and although I only purchased a few items, I am so so happy with them. 

My make-up: 
♡ Foundation - Bourjois Healthy mix ♡ Eyes - Maybelline colour tattoo in 'on and on bronze' ♡ Lipstick -  Rimmel London Kate Moss in 01

♡ Scarf and hat - Primark ♡ Elephant top - Urban Outfitters 
I actually only just purchased my Bourjois foundation as I do not really wear any face make-up other than BB cream so this is my first proper one. I have heard so many good things about it and my sister ( actually recommended it to me, and I trust her as she is very much into make-up. 

I have wanted a tartan scarf for a long time, its one of those quintessential winter items that I have never owned. Many of the highstreet shops have their own variations of them, but I went for Primark as there colour my favoured on and as it only cost £5, it would be stupid not to buy it. The hat I am wearing was a bit of a random buy. I have always been a fan of hats and this looked like one of those items I would wear  a lot in the winter season (and it only cost me £2) 

On my tumblr, I have had so many requests about doing a room tour, so soon I will post some photos of my room for you all :) it will obviously not be very detailed, but doing a video tour would take ages! 

Hope you enjoyed this post.

Lunch with Amber

Tasty chicken baguette and seasoned fries

Literally my favourite dessert ever - raspberry mousse, raspberry and vanilla ice-cream with blueberries and strawberries 
Today me and my younger sister Amber went for a lunch date in our local Caffe Rouge. The food there is gorgeous and not too expensive so if you have never been, I totally recommend it!


The weather was quite chilly so I wrapped up moderately warm. I enjoy autumn and winter so much due to the fact you can layer your clothing and mix and match summer items with winter ones. The outfit I wore today was perfect for walking around the shops and staying warm since we had to take quite a long ride bus home.

♡ Boots / jumper / watch / necklace - all next
♡ Disco pants - 
♡ Denim jacket - vintage 
♡ Bag - topshop 

Not sure if you can tell in these photos, but I actually crimped my hair using a Babyliss Wave Envy which gives 'crimp' like waves to your hair. I would totally recommend it as it is super easy to use and doesn't take that long if you're not doing the whole head in very small sections, obviously. This outfit was super comfy and perfect to go shopping in. The bag I am carrying is actually my new favourite, even though you can't particularly see it in these photos; it is my school bad and is perfect for every occasion in my eyes  (I am working on a video atm which includes this)


After we ate out for lunch we had a pop round the shops and I brought a few items I am actually very happy with, and as I was on a small budget, I was surprised with how much I actually got - I will do a separate blog post for this :)

We of course had to end the day with two gorgeous Starbucks Chai Lattes

Hope you enjoyed this post and are all having a lovely week

Haven't ventured out today due to the storm that hit London last night, but this is the outfit I wore yesterday when I went to have breakfast with my family in Ikea - it has become my second home now:) Today will consist of watching films, listening to music and eating a lot; perks of half term 

Chicago town subs and Made in Chelsea = perfection
Hope you all have a great day

Coats and boots

Recently I purchased two amazing autumn/winter pieces. Both gorgeous yet conventional, and just what I needed for the colder months. I usually have quite a minimalistic sense of fashion, and prefer to stick to plain prints instead of bold, eye-catching ones. These two pieces do reflect this, but I think that although quite plain, I will wear them constantly so are worth the money.

Black leather boots with gold buckle and zip detailing from Next

Black shearling lined longline biker jacket from River Island

A lot of the shops on the high-street have amazing clothing ranges coming out for autumn/ winter which is one of the reasons I love these two seasons so much. Right now the weather is not too cold, but I am preparing for the worst as London is suppose to have the coldest winter in many years, so I look forward to that:)

Hope you enjoyed this blog post, if you want me to do any particular posts please comment down below and I will be sure to do them.
