I know the start of Autumn was the 22nd September but for me, I feel like it really starts on the 1st October. I don’t know whether it’s still having the odd warm day in September and what not but October seems so much more autumnal and cosy and I’m more willing to accept the fact that Summer is long gone! So, that means it’s time to update my wardrobe for Autumn and today, I’ve got a wishlist from the online retailer, WearAll. Make sure you go and have a nosey at their website, they’ve got some lovely bits at really reasonable prices and better yet, you can get free delivery and returns on all orders! What are you lusting over? Let me know in the comments.

Autumn means it’s time to look for a new coat and I love parkas over any other style. I’m not sure why, I just do. I love the style of the Wendy Faux Fur Leather Hooded Parka, it features inside fleeced lining which is bound to keep you cosy and warm!

I literally live in jumpers come Autumn and Winter, you’ll rarely see me in anything else. And why not? They keep you feeling snug after all! I really love the colours on the Alexis Striped Cable Knitted Cut Out Sleeve Jumper. I’m not too keen on the cutouts but other than that, it looks like a really cosy jumper.

If I do opt for a t-shirt during the colder months then a cardigan is a must have. I own a ton but I’ve got my eye on the Alysha Long Sleeve Open Aztec Knitted Cardigan. I love that it hasn’t got buttons and I adore the waterfall style.

Gingham is still really big this season and this Holly Floral Embroidered Gingham Bell Sleeve Top is adorable. I’m still in love with floral embroidery too so that’s a bonus. This top would look great paired with the Taylor Floral Embroidered Distressed Skinny Jeans.

Other bits I’m loving: Reiko Velour Turtle Neck Bodysuit, Kaelyn Fluffy Knitted Necklace Mini Jumper Dress, Audrey Badge Detail Diamante Distressed T-Shirt, Mylee Cable Knitted Long Waterfall Cardigan, Sarah Distressed Cropped Loungewear Set, Leah Liberte Slogan Short Sleeve T-Shirt and the Versie Contrast Striped Distressed Denim Jeans.

*This wishlist was created in collaboration with WearAll. However, all words are my own.

One other thing I love about spring other than the beautiful weather and the glowy, light makeup is the fashion. Spring trends have to be my favourite and a big one this year is floral embroidery. Something I am completely obsessed with and I am so surprised I’ve not gone crazy and filled my wardrobe with it, yet. So many high street shops have taken this trend on board, one of those being New Look. I popped in store a couple of weeks ago and if I was a millionaire, I think I could’ve easily bought the whole store. Just so many beautiful floral embroidered fashion from dresses and jeans to boots and accessories. Today, I thought I’d share some favourites albeit not all because well, let’s just say, it’d be the biggest wishlist post ever and you’d get bored, eventually..

As I mentioned before, New Look have some wonderful bits in at the moment. Such as this stripy swing dress, I’m obsessed with striped clothing items, I own a ton in my wardrobe, they are so versatile. I’d love to add this gorgeous dress to my collection as not only is stripy, it’s got gorgeous floral embroidery too. I’ve also got my eye on these pretty jeans and these beautiful boots

ASOS also have so many gorgeous floral embroidered items on offer. I am in love with these trainers and seeing as I basically live in trainers, I think I need these. I also adore this biker jacket from Glamorous and this off shoulder top which would be perfect now it’s getting warmer!

Lastly, another brand that are absolutely winning at the floral embroidery trend is Zara aka my favourite clothing shop. I’m loving the look of this blouse, not only do I love the embroidery but I also adore the plumetis fabric. I’m also head over heels in love with this dress (if only I could pull it off) and this suede skirt too.


Are you a fan of the floral embroidery trend?

Topshop Wishlist

The days are getting slightly longer and the temperatures are gradually rising which means Spring is just around the corner! Probably my favourite time of the year, I’ve been lusting after a few new additions for my Spring wardrobe. Trends that are big this Spring include floral embroidery, pastels and a whole lotta velvet which Topshop are absolutely nailing at the moment. They have so many gorgeous clothes on offer to help you stay on trend like these lust-worthy floral embroidered boots, this blush pink pinafore that I’m obsessed with and this velvet tee that looks so damn cosy. Sorry, bank account, I’ve gotta make an order.


Will you be wearing any of these trends this Spring? What clothing items are you lusting over at the moment?

It’s just two days until the big day and today, I thought I’d share my Christmas wishlist. Everything I’d love to unwrap on Christmas morning. Some things are probably a bit far fetched and are unlikely to be found under the tree but hey, a girl can dream right? Let me know what you’re hoping to receive on Christmas morning in the comments.

My list this year isn’t as long as past years but I have popped a few ‘big’ present ideas on it. To improve on my blog photos, I really want to get my hands on a DSLR camera. A Canon one preferably, I’m currently looking at the Canon 1300D as it’s one of the cheaper options but sounds and looks good. If I don’t receive it, I will be saving up and buying it myself in a few months. Do you have this camera? Would you recommend it? Also going a little bit retro, I’d love an Instax Mini Camera too.

I’ve really gotten into homeware in recent months and have become obsessed with browsing stores such as West Elm and Oliver Bonas (to name just a few!) online. Ideally, I’d love to have the whole Oliver Bonas shop bought for me but that’s not going to happen. Homeware gifts I’d love to receive include this mirror from Oliver Bonas, a Rifle Paper Co 2017 Calendar, A whole load of Yankee Candles and a Cinematic Lightbox (these are so cool!)

Being a beauty blogger, a lot of makeup is obviously on the list! I want to get my hands on the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, I keep meaning to buy it but never do! Other bits include the Soap & Glory Glamorama Set, No7 The Classic Brush Set (these look beautiful) and anything from Charlotte Tilbury would be the icing on the cake. I need to try something from Charlotte Tilbury soon.


What’s on your Christmas list?

July Favourites

I can’t believe July has come to an end already. This is the month I always look forward to as it’s my birthday month and it’s completely flown by but that shouldn’t be any surprise now as 2016 is just going too fast. What is happening!? Before we know it it’ll be Christmas! Anyway, this month’s favourites are a bit of a mix between new purchases and old loves that I’ve rediscovered..

July Favourites
MAC Vegas Volt Lipstick | £15.50 | LINK
In the last few months, I’ve been reaching for my MAC Brave lipstick a hell of a lot and completely abandoning all other lip products in my collection. I’m just obsessed with it and it’s gorgeous finish. However, this month I’ve gone back to using other lip products including my coral favourite, Vegas Volt. A perfect summer shade, it’s quite bright for me and is certainly the boldest lipstick I own. As MAC say, it’s a full power coral and I definitely agree. Vegas Volt is an Amplified Creme formula which means it’s super creamy and comfortable with highly pigmented colour. Basically, it packs a punch!
bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Gel Cream | £27.00 | LINK
This gel cream from bareMinerals is my favourite summer base so as you can imagine, I’m pretty sad it’s nearly all used up! The best of a BB, CC and tinted moisturiser all in one, this cream is perfect for when you don’t want to slap on a full coverage foundation and not just in the summer! The coverage is amazing, light but covers all imperfections and adds a healthy looking glow to the skin. I’ll definitely be buying another one!
L’Oreal Brow Artist Shaper Pencil | £4.99 | LINK
This pencil has made eyebrow filling in so much easier for me! I always struggled to get them looking nice but now it’s an absolute breeze. This 3 in 1 pencil has a pencil to fill, a clear wax to fix and a brush on the lid cap to brush through brows. 
July Favourites
Smashbox X-Rated Mascara | £19.50 (Full size) | LINK
Whenever Emerald Street offer us the chance to get our hands on some freebie samples, I jump at the chance especially when it involves makeup from brands I’m yet to try like Smashbox. The X-Rated Mascara is considered to be Smashbox’s ‘Triple Threat’ mascara. It isolates, magnifies and mega coats each lash with its fibre loaded formula. The result is volumised, thick, dramatic lashes. This is my new favourite mascara! I love the full-size packaging too!
Lancome Energie De Vie Nuit The Sleeping Mask | £42.00 (Full size) | LINK
Again, another sample from Emerald Street. The Lancome Energie De Vie Sleeping Mask is an overnight melt in face mask. The result is hydrated, plumped and fresh looking skin. This mask instantly breaks into water droplets to pump up skin moisture in just 10 minutes. It’s really lovely and I can see myself buying the full-size version when my sample runs out.
L’Oreal Color Riche Collection Lipstick in Eva’s Delicate Rose | £6.99 | LINK
I’ve already mentioned this beautiful lipstick in my Recent Makeup & Skincare buys post, so I’ll keep this short and sweet! A matte lipstick that is super comfortable and non-drying, Eva’s Delicate Rose is a gorgeous rosy pink shade. It’s absolutely gorgeous.
July Favourites
New Look Black Double Bar Cat Eye Sunglasses | £4.49 | LINK
I was out shopping recently and came across these sunglasses in New Look. They were already a bargain however they were on sale so they were even cheaper. I loved the shape and how they looked on so I had to have them. Whether or not they’ll last a long time is to be seen but I’ll be happy if they just last for this summer. I love them!
What have you been loving in July?
