Autumnal To Do List

Good Morning World!

Its officially Autumn! To me, October marks the start of everything cosy, warm and rustic. This is the month when the leaves start to turn golden, and crunchy, the time when I cannot go out the house without a jumper or coat on, and my socks gain a few inches. There are many things that I love about Autumn and many thing I want to do before this season comes to a close just like my good friend summer.

Here is my Autumnal to do list:

  • Go on an early morning walk
  • Find the perfect cosy jumper
  • Jump on the crunchy fresh leaves
  • Get a head start on my Christmas shopping
  • Make the ultimate hot chocolate with marshmallows, cream and a flake.
  • Have a Autumn fragranced bubble bath
  • Live in chunky boots and fluffy socks
  • Get Christmas pyjamas
  • Take arty Instagram pictures
  • Carve a pumpkin
  • Have the best golden eye makeup
  • Have a girls-night-in with old Halloween films
  • Wrap myself in blankets

What are you doing this Autumn?

Autumn Golden Eye

Good Morning World!

I would firstly like to point out that is this my first ever makeup post involving my face, I know its pretty weird and I would usually avoid this at all costs but after constant persuasion from my blogging BFF Caris, I came around to the idea.

So without further ado, I present my face…

This look was inspired by a recent shoot of mine and I used Autumnal colours in my eyes to match the browning leaves. When doing my makeup in Autumn I tend to go for a high coverage foundation, this is because when the months start to get colder my face starts to develop more spots and red blemishes and so the higher coverage is more necessary. I use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24hour matte foundation and the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer to achieve my base. This foundation is matte and so I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone who suffers with dry skin as this may cause some irritation, however for anyone else this foundation is a god sent.

For my eyes I used a Ted Baker Trio Palette, and took the lighter shade all over my eye, and dark brown in my crease, I then went over lightly with the golden copper shade to incorporate the season. For my contour I used the Sleek Contour Palette, and for blush I used a MAC blusher in the shade Just a Wisp.

I did my eyebrows with a Rimmel Brow This Way eyebrow pencil in the shade light, and used the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara over my eyes. Then to finish used the MAC Lipstick in Velvet Teddy.

I hope you enjoyed this look and get creating yourself.

Ruffle Waist Trousers | Autumn Transition Look

Good Morning World!

DSC_0587 (2)DSC_0611 (2)DSC_0613 (2)DSC_0762 (2)DSC_0777 (2)

As we enter a new season, fashions as well as many other things change. As the months get colder and the leaves start to drop from the trees its time to change your style into something warmer and comfier. This season, according to Vogue, is all about the wide leg trousers. They’re an excellent clothing piece for these transitional months into winter, they offer more insulation due to the extended space in the leg and not to mention comfort, (I felt like I was wearing pyjamas).

I found these candy blue striped trousers in Topshop for £39, and paired it with a burgundy top to illustrate Autumn. However, as the British cold weather decides to visit us once again, I will start wearing these trousers with cropped jumpers, this is so the ruffled waistline is still accentuated and gives the perception of a more hourglass figure.

Through the Looking Glass

Good Morning World!

I wouldn’t call myself a very professional fashion blogger but I would call myself a fashion enthusiast. I have always been a lover of nice clothes and a good pair of shoes, especially when there is an occasion. So, I put this outfit together as a sort of dinner dining attire for the Autumnal season. I feel like the burgundy colour compliments the shedding tree leaves making this the perfect seasonal outfit.

I bought these swede dungarees from Topshop for £45, and I absolutely adore them.  I have been looking for a nice pair of dungarees for some time and I never found any that fit me properly or looking right. I am not into the whole denim ones so I was thrilled when I came across this beauty.

dsc_0090dsc_0094

I paired this look with a simple white high neck white body suit also from Topshop, some tights (as it’s cold outside), and some simple black ballerina pumps. The only thing I struggle with when wearing this outfit is where to wear it, as its too nice to be casual ;).

Bath | Roman Baths and Jane Austen Centre

Good Morning World!

dsc_0242

Bath is a city located in the west of England. It is filled with beautiful cobbled streets and a waterfall of culture. I have lived in Britain my whole life and yet my traveling past of my own county seems very bare. For the most part, we as a nation are captivated by the weather, it seems the only thing we brits go on about (besides tea) so as it comes to no surprise our holidays seem to be more where the sun shines. This got me thinking, why not experience British culture before venturing off somewhere else.

One weekend my boyfriend and I set off on a 2 hour train journey to the beautiful city of bath. We stayed in a hotel located minutes away from the train station and in a prime location for visiting the Roman Baths and other major attractions in the city centre. We arrived late on the Friday night and only had time to potter about the city and enjoy a delightful dinner in one of the nearby restaurants before resigning back to the hotel.

I, as the sunshine morning person that I am, woke up super early for breakfast excited to start my bath adventures. Our first stop on my list of bath attractions was of course the Roman Baths. The baths were built in 33BC, and now consist of remarkable preserved remains of one of the most famous places in history. The water from the baths are heated from the earths core creating a remarkably natural thermal spring.

Having never visited this beautiful city I thought the baths would just be that, you look at the baths and you leave. But as you begin, you enter a beautifully presented exhibition along with a “walkie talkie phone thing” that allows you to key in numbers relating to an artefact and hear its history. I found it utterly fascinating and would thoroughly recommend this to anyone wanting to visit this darling city.

Another place I have always longed to visit in bath is the Jane Austen Centre. Ever since I was younger my mother has always been a Jane Austen fan, owning nearly all the books and constantly re-watching TV series, so there was no surprise when I have become a huge fan of her work. My favourite book being the classic novel “Pride and Prejudice” which I have re-read numerous times.

The Jane Austen centre is located on 40 Gay street, a mere few doors down from where Jane lived herself. The tour of the centre begins with a 10 minute talk about Jane’s life, and a video on her achievements and novels. This then finished with an exhibition about various clothing, games and facts of the 1800’s.

Although this exhibition was mainly for me, there were parts of it that even Harry seemed to enjoy. We spent ages going through a poster on ‘the language of the fan’ forever making convocation without moving our lips. There was also somewhere to try out writing with a quill and various games of the 1800’s which proved to get the better of our 21st century attention span.

After the culture filled weekend there was still some time left to do a bit of shopping along the quant cobbled streets, where we visited the Fudge Kitchen and purchased more than we care to admit.

Our time in bath was very short lived, spending our hours soaking up the bath culture. We are looking forward to another British adventure.

Edgy Autumn Jacket

Good Morning World!

My individual style can vary from cutsey florals and ballerina pumps to a leather jacket and block heels. Although this style is very neglected in my wardrobe choice I still enjoy the occasional biker chick look.

dsc_0014

I wore this look when attending the fair that annually visits my local town in October. I though this look works best when worn at night as it gives off an edgy vibe. The faux fur rim on the leather jackets adds to the look and creates an outfit perfect for the colder months. I bought this jacket from Asos for only £29.99 which is a real steal when you take into account some of these jackets can go for way over £75.dsc_0016

I got this cosy stone jumper while exploring Winchester one weekend with my boyfriend. I got this jem for only £10 from Primark. I am normally not one to shop in Primark but I enjoy a good browse and you sometimes see the occasional odd number.

My overly loved joni jeans are from Topshop and my boots from H&M, both of which were bought many moons ago, but still continue to feature in my everyday wardrobe essentials.

Autumn Attire

Good Morning World!

As the new season has arisen it is only fitting to hit the stores and accumulate loads more Autumnal clothing that you have convinced yourself that you need. I may have just done that, I spent one afternoon putting together an outfit made entirely of Topshop clothing. I am personally so in love with this outfit that I kid you not wear nothing else (maybe a slight exaggeration but this is my go-to outfit choice).

dsc_0865

This outfit is made up of a pair of standard denim Jamie Jeans, a long sleeved high neck white bodysuit and a beautiful cross coloured cardigan which I live in. I feel this look gives off a chic guide without trying too hard. Not only does it provide comfort and warmth which is a must have for an Autumn wardrobe, but gives a stylish impression.

I hope you love this beginning of October look as much as I do.
