Here are some photos of the past two days, I am sorry they are all via instagram
but I have just got home and am ready to dive into bed. I wore my new pink dress from Topshop, fox scarf from Next and used my Vivienne Westwood handbag. I also had my Next handbag and a variety of other clothes but these didn’t make it onto any of my iPhone photos, they may be on my camera though so I shall check tomorrow. I am reading another Paul Theroux book which I started on the train yesterday, I am really enjoying it as I always do with his books. My auntie P got this book for me a few years ago but with moving back and forth from uni it stayed in my selection of unread books. I always have lots of books to read but I am glad I left this one for a while because I can enjoy it now as it’s really fitting with my craving for travel.
I met some new people today which was very enjoyable, I think it’s always good to talk to as many people as you can and share experiences with each other. I find it really gives me motivation and inspiration to try new things in life. I enjoyed seeing my friend D who I haven’t seen since I left Manchester (we were in London for the same thing… which I can’t give details of yet….sorry), it was nice to be able to meet up, drink lots of coffee, explore a new city and meet new people together. I will look forward to seeing more of my Manchester friends when I am there in December, it really has been too long.

Using a black and a sparkly nail varnish means you will end up with what you could call “evil fairy” nails, the thing with these black and sparkle nails is that they are work friendly. In some work places you may not be able to get away with orange, green or yellow designed nails but it should hopefully be ok to have sparkly black nails. This was just a quick post to give you some inspiration for Halloween nails and how to make them suitable for the work place and at the same time still getting into the Halloween fun.
Here is some colour inspiration from some photos I took in September. I think yellow and green are such happy and warm colours, not only do they give you a feeling of summer but they also change to a lovely deep shade during the autumn. I like the different shades of yellow and green and how they change through the seasons, I find they are the two colours (along with red and navy) which are always knocking about within my clothes. I am wearing darker shades of yellow and green at the moment, but I would like to embrace some very bright shades within my autumn wardrobe. I really like autumn, I enjoy layers, deep and dark colours and keeping extra warm with a coffee to warm your hands. We don’t need to forget about summer though, even though it’s gone we can still enjoy the shades that went with it. Add a little summer into your outfits by wearing a bright fruity skirt or jumper and then team it up with the traditional autumnal shades of brown and deep reds.
Today was a little warmer and a little less wet than the rest of the week, I didn’t even need to wear my coat, I must add that I was wearing a lovely warm jumper so I was still toasty and warm. I have so much to do this weekend but I am making sure that the blog is fully active and I hope you enjoy the posts I have ready for you all.
What do you have planned for the weekend !?
Do you try to keep some summer shades within your outfits in the autumn?!
At the weekend I went to Cambridge and Lavenham, two very lovely places and I of course have many more photos to show you within in posts this week. This was someones door knocker in Lavenham, there were many more pretty houses in this tiny town, interesting door knockers, small shops, friendly cats and happy people.
You may remember me posting about Hannah Zakari the other day, I shared a lovely fox face
brooch from her lovely shop
. As soon as I spotted this door knocker It reminded me of the brooch and my fox scarf
. I want to see if I can find some more lovely fox designs to add to my accessories or outfits, I think they make quite the statement to a simple outfit. I am actually craving other animal based prints at the moment. There are so many pheasants about where I live, I would like a pheasant print scarf, has anyone seen one?!
Morph suggested I show you the two new beauty products I picked up from the chemist. I am meant to be holding back on the spending as I am going away in December but both of these…maybe one of these is something I really needed. I got into the car when my dad picked me up after my busy day, I hadn’t touched up my make up because I am just too lazy and I was quite sad to see how washed out I looked. I as soon as I glanced into the mirror I new I needed to be wearing more make up and also purchase concealer. So after a quick stop at home to chuck on my fruit coloured outfit I waddled to town to go to the post office and chemist for a new concealer.
There wasn’t much choice as they only had Rimmel and NYC, I decided on the Stay Matte Rimmel Dual Action Concealer… what it exactly will do I am unsure but it has a green bit in the middle which I hope with help with covering the dark circles under my eyes. I have been told a few products which are good to use and I am sure I will try those out at some point, but for now this one will do. I am actually looking forward to trying it out in the morning. I think it was just under £6.00, I didn’t make note I am sorry. Has anyone else used it ?!
There was a Rimmel nail varnish which was exactly the same as Lights-Camera-Glitter by NYC, I spotted the NYC just before I was about to pay and decided I would get this one and not the Rimmel one. It was 50p cheaper so I thought well why not try out this make, I have heard some good things about it and I don’t mind trying new brands. This was just under £2.00, I am going to try it out tonight. I am really into painting my nails a dark colour and then popping some glitter on top to soften it up a little.
What do you think of NYC products ? Have you used them before ?
I I I
I I Hope you all had a lovely day !
