instagram no.3

I definitely jumped on the hype-wagon when I got excited over the Starbucks Christmas cups. I also got overly excited by some Frubes with a good friend. I walked past the thinnest house I've ever seen in Chelsea. The Shard. My view on a frosty autumn morning. My future car (Lamborghini Aventador). The best coaster I've ever seen. Harrods is all christmassy. Cooking a yummy omlette.

A Little Bit of Grunge

Recently I've been wearing the colour black a lot. Whether that's because of the time of year or because I'm being lazy, I don't know. Either way, I love black and I don't care :) 

My leather jacket wasn't a purchase I made rationally...I didn't want to rush into buying something that I knew would be worn a lot. After a fair amount of 'umming and ahhing' I decided 'Oh what the hell!'

And I haven't regretted it since.

 Hi Lo Dress - Glamorous
Jacket - River Island
Bracelet - New Look
Shoes - Converse 

As of now, I'm not 100% on this dress. I love the tie-dye, I love the studs...but I'm not so sure I love the asymmetric-ness. I feel like it's a bit too long? Either way I refuse to send it back because it's just so different and I have nothing else like this in my wardrobe. 

I wore my trusty converse which I absolutely can't get enough of at the moment, even though I bought them a good year ago! 

What do you think of the dress? I need some reassurance :)

Scottish Roots

Is it too soon for another tartan-obssessed post...?

Noo, of course it's not! 

This goregous wollen scarf is my 'go-to' item at the moment and since I wear a lot of black, it goes with everything.

I can thank my eBay addiction for this item. I was determined to win the bidding war between me and another fellow bargain hunter and ended up paying £19 (I got a little bit carried away but I couldn't afford to let this one go!) It's also by Pringle which adds luxury to my outfit :) 

In other news...I had my first set of vaccinations today in preperation for my 5 months travelling. I can deal with injections...the cost however is another story! I ended up spending £121 for four injections and that's not the half of it :( I guess this means my shopping money is being eaten into by annoying expenses such as this one!

Licking the bowl on a saturday night. Justifying licking the bowl by eating pesto pasta and reading the recent Glamour issue. Halloween night out. My very professional makeshift tripod. New stud top. I want these Nike ID trainers! Trying to liven up my bedroom with some pretty flowers. Making a cake and the eggs smiled at me. Outfit of the evening! 

This week has been a very busy week for me in terms of work. In terms of everything else however, it's been a pretty dull week. My flights are now booked so I'm off travelling for 5 and a half months next February which is extremely exciting. Hope you all have had a great week:

I feel like the shirt makes it look as though I have put loads of thought into this outfit. When really, I haven't. But that is what makes this outfit a winner for me. I can shove it on and look 'together'.


Blue plaster, I cut myself at work :(
 Shirt - ASOS
Necklace - Topshop
Textured skirt - ASOS
Gold cuff - charity shop :)
See, I told you that necklace gets around....

I tucked the necklace under the folded collar making it look as though it's built in. I really love it like this as it's a subtle 'add-on' to the shirt whilst making it look a bit more glamorous :)

*warning* You will be seeing this ASOS skirt a lot in my is literally my all time favourite skirt, it goes with most things in my wardrobe! 

What do you think?

The Black Swan - Halloween Style

Me being me I left my halloween costume until the day before, meaning everywhere was sold out of fake blood/cat ears/face paint/witch hats, therefore making my (what should have been easy) decision a nightmare

I finally decided on going as The Black Swan. 

My creativity didn't go very far beyond the makeup however. Probably could have made more effort with a black tutu, but was put off by the price tag along with the fact that I'd never wear it again. So instead I wore a black crop top and a black skirt - keepin' it simple.

One of my best friends, Kitty and I
(Sorry about the camera quality, it was taken on the front facing camera of my iphone!)

It took a good half hour to do the eyes alone but I think (and hope) it paid off. I also hope that people knew exactly who we were or it would look like a random mass amount of eye makeup ;) We coloured the lips in with a dark red lipliner and used a black pencil eye liner on the corners of our lips to darken the tone.

Hope you guys like what we did - it was definitely a lot of fun and a whole lot of experimenting!
What did you wear for halloween?
