Look Of The Day

October 14, 2017

Well this burst of mild weather is delightful, I mean Sunday was a glorious day. I ditched the tights and put on my new LOTD dress. It’s the softest jersey material ever, has flutter sleeves and a small floral print, all in all a perfect transitional dress. Great for warm sunny days but will be great with tights and ankle boots.

I kind of fell off the Blogtober bandwagon, sorry about that. I’ve been working loads, really tired and busy with wedding plans. I have lots of content lined up but  just haven’t found the time to write. Hoping I’ll find some in the evenings this week, as we’ve got a busy weekend and I won’t be able to get any done.

Today Dave and I are off to give notice of marriage, eek it’s getting real! We have lots of errands to run too, mainly collecting parcels that I missed in the week. Don’t you just hate when you miss the postman! Then later were off for dinner with Dave’s parents as there in London for the weekend. I better get myself ready, my hair won’t magically dry or straighten itself. Have a wonderful Saturday ya’ll!

Share The Love…

October 9, 2017

Go Check Out The Man Behind The Camera!

I just wanted to take a moment to thank Dave.
Not only is he a wonderful fiancé and my best friend but he also takes all my photographs for the blog and without him the quality of my blog’s images would be pretty lame. It would mean a lot to me if you checked out his blog or his facebook page. With so many of you say how beautiful the photographs are, I’m sure you’ll love looking at his other types of photography work. There is everything from food, car racing, street style and day trips, oh and occasionally I make an appearance… you just can’t get away from my mug 😉

Casual Tartan

October 8, 2017

I’ve had this dress for a couple of years and it’s perfect for Autumnal dressing, it’s easy to throw on and looks effortless and chic year after year. Such a good investment and it’s from Tallulah’s Threads and I highly recommend checking them out. A UK and Brighton based independent fashion brand, with plenty of fun frocks to take your fancy. I love the colours of this tartan, makes me think I should invest in more greens and navy clothing!  Keeping it casual for a day of running errands and brunching with Dave, I opted for comfort with my Vans. I’m also wearing my glasses which you don’t often see but sometimes I just need to wear them, like I said it was a day of comfort.

I’ve also got myself a fancy new watch. I was invited to the Timex event celebrating their 40th anniversary. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my stories from the event and if you don’t make sure you follow me for behind the scenes from events I go to and snippets of my daily life. If you don’t follow me on Insta, it was such a fun event that I took Dave along too. We got to pick a watch, actually Dave and I picked matching ones, then we got to customise them with our initials. The Timex people kindly bent the rules about initial stamping for me, as I’m that awkward bugger who has a double barrelled surname. They cleverly placed my initials sideways. We really love our watches and I guess it’s becoming a tradition we get matching watches?

Little Floral Bag

October 7, 2017

As my last outfit illustration went down so well I thought I’d create another. This flat lay features my cord dress and snazzy Burgundy earrings. My much loved leather jacket and Zara tapestry bag, which is my absolute favourite bag ever! Which I must say, I’m oh so pleased with how the illustration of it came out. It’s so detailed and I’m really proud of it 🙂

A couple of my favourite beauty items is this Chanel lippie and foundation powder and my trusty conceal by Benefit. My new watch I picked up at a recent Timex event, I’ll be sharing an outfit post featuring this beaut of a watch with ya’ll very soon!

How are you all enjoying Blogtober? I’ve survived my first week, only three more to go 😉 Let me know any posts you would like to see!

Beret Love

October 6, 2017

blog_078blog_069blog_080

My red beret has received a lot of love in recent posts and thought it would be fun to jazz up a really old dress I picked up in the sale last year. It might be slightly premature to dig out the my faux fur coat  just yet but I do love this jacket and can’t wait to wear it more over the winter months. The mixture of the beret and faux fur give this look a 40s retro vibe, which I totally dig.

I’m a week into the Blogtober challenge, it’s been good fun but hard creating enough content for daily posting (along side a full time job) hoping I can continue to daily post.

Are you enjoying my Blogtober content, is there any other type of content ya’ll would like to see?

Bridal Gang Inspiration

October 5, 2017

1, 2, 3, 4, 5

For my second instalment of my wedding series I thought I’d concentrate on the bridal gang.
I have five bridesmaids, all with different style lengths. I’m loving the braided hair whether it’s a full milkmaid braided style  or a half up half down style with a braid.

I also love green leaf bouquets and soft pastel dresses. I’ve got my eye on a couple of dresses via ASOS. I’m torn between navy shades, blush shades and soft salmon. Eek which colour do I pick, it feels like such a big decision. Do any of you have any advice about how you picked your bridal gangs dresses?

Fancy keeping up to date with my wedding boards? Follow me on Pinterest for my Bridal Gang, Flowers and Wedding ideas .

Cosy Afternoons

October 4, 2017


Cosy rainy afternoons.  I love to spend them in my favourite corner of our flat reading fashion magazines.
Things that make me happy are nice smelling candles, fresh flowers and fashion magazines. So on a rainy afternoon I like nothing better than snuggling up.

These pink roses match our bedroom decor perfectly. These velvet cushions are from H&M home, they truly have some of the best homeware around and at very affordable prices. We’re currently in the middle of doing up our bedroom, once it’s all complete I’ll be writing a post on it.

Other things that make me incredibly happy is this scented candle from Laura Ashely. Sweet Pea & Freesia is my absolute favourite, such a lovely smell. Even throughout the night when the candle isn’t light I get swifts of it as I sleep – pure bliss!

What do you like to do on rainy afternoons, do you have a favourite cosy corner of your home?
