The Autumn Tag


1. Ok we're talking coffee's - what's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?
I tend to order the gingerbread flavoured coffees, but my favourite autumn/winter hot drink will probably have to be mulled wine flavoured tea from Whittards, so good!

2. Accessories - what do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves?
I love scarves and mittens. I bought a massive scarf from Zara last year, it's literally a blanket. So I'm happy to see the big scarves and capes come out this year. I love boots too but I don't think they suit me, so I get very cold feet wearing flats!

3. Music - what's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
A bit of Bon Iver, She & Him (they get me in the Christmas mood!), Iron and Wine and A Fine Frenzy.

4. Perfume - what's your favourite scent for this time of year?
I don't tend to change my perfume with the seasons but I'll probably be using my new Jo Malone cologne a lot!

5. Candles - what scents will you be burning this season?
I love my Merry Marshmallow and Carrot Cake candles from Yankee Candles.

6. What do you love most about Autumn?
The days where it's crisp and cold but still really sunny.

7. Favourite makeup look?
The classic berry or dark red lip!

8. What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?
Now my birthday has been and gone, I'm excited to be getting stuck in at university!

If you do this tag, feel free to let me know so I can read it!

A/W'14 Fashion Wishlist


I have a feeling that my wardrobe for autumn will be very lacking in colour! But that's usually the story at this time of year, I love to wear grey and black and navy! Everything I like is also very simple, which may be down to my mood as a lot of what I own no longer fits me (sad sad face) and I feel like clothing like this will fit me now and when I lose weight! I'm not exactly loving my body or clothes at the minute, I'm basically living in jeans or my pyjamas! I am desperate for new shoes, also a coat, which I haven't found at the moment. I tried to pick a favourite piece from the wishlist but there's so many. All of the shoes, especially the heels, the boucle jumper, the check skirt and the roll-neck dress are my faves!

Room Tour: Univeristy Edition

Hello! I decided a while ago to do some sort of room tour when I moved into my new uni flat in Nottingham. I'm not completely moved in and I still have a few bits and bobs to bring but it's looking pretty much like home already! This is the biggest room I've ever had and I've never had a double bed before, so I'm very excited about all the space I'll have!
