Autumn Wish List 2014

Hello everyone!

As most of you in this part of the world know it’s Autumn time again , and although I am incredibly sad that summer is over, I am quite excited to get some new Autumn/ Winter pieces for this year especially as this Autumn is predicted to be a pretty hot one (hence why my list is not yet filled with tartan and knits, stick around for my Winter wishlist for that!) So in that spirit I thought I would start a new mini post series where I post my must haves / wish list for that season, I hope you all enjoy it. 
  • The coat, New Look £40 : When I was on the train last year I saw a girl wearing a coat similar to this but in camel brown and since then I’ve been searching for one high and low, now there are so many different styles and brands I just cant pick! However I do love this one the most, I love the grey colour and the to the side closure is by far more attractive to me than buttons, I might get it in the grey and camel brown just well because why not. Buy yours here.
  • The boots, Zara £80: The over the knee boot trend is so popular right now and although I do absolutely love it, I think I love these knee high boots just that tiny bit more and think that they would look great with a skirt and some chunky over the knee socks to give it a really cosy feel. Buy them here.
  • The watch, Asos £75: I have never bought a watch, I've never seen the need for one and lets be honest I would be too lazy to put it on everyday, but I saw this watch while browsing Asos and knew I needed it! I love the grey (which would go perfect with the coat) and the light gold gives it a touch of warmth needed for Autumn. Buy it here.
  • The cardigan, Joules £50: For Autumn I am really loving the mustard yellow colour this year, it reminds me of the colour the leaves go just before they fall and it also brings a much needed warmth to an outfit! I think this cardigan would look great layered under the grey coat or even under a leather jacket. Buy it here.
  • The shirt, Topshop £18: It might just be a plain white shirt and although I was so happy when I left school and no longer had to wear one, I do feel like they're something that everyone should have in their wardrobe because they go with absolutely anything and instantly makes an outfit look effortlessly chic. Buy yours here.
And there you have it, my little Autumn wish list which lets face it is becoming more extensive as I write this and scroll through even more clothing websites, but these are definitely the core items I need for this Autumn and you can find all my wants and wishes on my Wantfeed account which is listed in my side bar, also make yourself an account so I can follow you and see what you're all loving! Stay tuned for my Winter wish list and let me know in the comments what you're craving for this Autumn.

Have a great weekend xo


2nd anniversary outfit of the night: OOTN

Hello everyone! 

On the 30th of August I had the pleasure of celebrating my two year anniversary with my wonderful boyfriend Andrew and so I thought I would share with you all what I wore out to dinner that night, which by the way was absolutely delicious so if you haven’t been to a Cote restaurant yet be sure to make your way there right now!

Since the weather here hasn't been the best lately (in other words it’s just gone back to normal English weather) I opted for a long sleeve dress that has a really thick winter material since I bought it in winter last year, some black heels to add a nice date night feel and a leather jacket to add a bit of edge to the outfit.

For accessories I wore my staple onyx ring, Swarovski crystal earrings and my lovely Swarovski necklace that I got from Andrew on our first anniversary last year.

I did my usual make-up routine (which you can find here here) using my Barry M natural glow palette but used the pink eye-shadow in the inner corner of my eyes and the grey eye-shadow on the outside to create a smoky eye effect, I also added liquid eye-liner for a more dramatic look, please excuse my shoddy eye-liner attempt, on my nails I am wearing Maybelline 301 Love This Sweater which is just so beautiful and just gets better everyday.

For my hair I just made a simple messy bun to show off my undercut which adds to the edginess of this look, to finish I put on my favourite perfume which is Hugo Boss Orange.

I had an amazing night and a wonderful two years, although sometimes its been difficult with it often being long distance but it's all been worth it. 

Also little shout out to one of my best friends in the entire world, Ray, who along with her beautiful sister Donna have just started a blog about living in the wonderful city of Cape Town, so if you've ever wondered what it's like living in a South African city or if you're from there yourself please check it out here, you wont be disappointed!
