Halloween Outfit

IMG_1983 IMG_1995

I went to a Halloween party last weekend and here is what I wore/looked like. For a while I had been looking on Pinterest for Halloween make-up inspiration and I found some great examples of creepy dolls, so I decided thats what I wanted to be. I used this image as my main inspiration. I used white and black Snazaroo face paints from the fancy dress shop, MAC Russian Red lipstick on my lips, Ardell and Eylure eyelashes on my eyelids and under my eyes, and MAC Briar Rose Beauty Powder on my cheeks (from the MAC Disney Venomous Villains collection).
For my outfit I just wore a Little Miss Muffet dress I had worn before, some cream tights from Primark (cannot be seen in these photos) which I ripped and added blood to, and a black bow detail headband from Accessorize. 
So there is my Halloween outfit. Maybe I should find something else to wear and go out trick or treating tonight? I might be a bit too old for trick or treating, but anything for free sweets hey!
Hope you have a scary Halloween!

p.s. did you watch that Release the Hounds on ITV2 the other night? I thought it was terrifying!

Truffle Shuffle Wish List


Truffle Shuffle is a website that I used to love browsing on all the time for all the retro and quirky clothing and accessories that they sell. It's kind of like reliving your childhood because it sparks your memory about TV shows and things that you used to watch and love. I haven't been on there for a while but I recently went on and rediscovered my love for the majority of the website. So I put together a little wish list of a select few things I would love to add to my basket (if I had the money!). My absolute favourite pick is the vintage toys jumper, I mean its got Tamagotchis and proper Polly Pockets on it! And a Doctor Who Tardis teapot? Everyone needs one of those!
Do you like anything on the Truffle Shuffle website?

Life Happens

This week I planned to be so on it with blogging and post every weekday, but life got in the way and I've had no time to photograph any outfits or put together the wish list I had planned to do. So instead I thought I'd have a little reminisce back to last month when I went to Florida and put together a post of a few snaps of my trip and some of the things I wore.

What To Do If You Like Something

When its £2 in Primark, you buy it in every colour they have in the shop obviously. I went to the scarves and hats area of Primark looking for the black beanie I've seen on one of their in-store adverts, and tried on four other colours whilst I was there, and accidentally happened to put those four into my basket. I mean what can you do? These things happen sometimes!
In other news, I've uploaded a new video on my YouTube channel, the 50 Facts About Me tag. Now I warn you, some of these are very embarrassing and I don't know if I should have opened up my weird-ness on the internet, but oh well, lets call it 'interesting' instead of weird maybe?

Recently In

Zara Two-Sided Scarf
This scarf is so snuggly and huge it's like a shawl as well, I love a two in one!

River Island Sunglasses
I've wanted these sunglasses for ages after seeing them on Lily Melrose (I think they're these ones anyway!), but they weren't online or in any shops I went to. I finally found them in Brighton this weekend. I know its not summer anymore but sunglasses are always a must.

Primark Christmas Jumper
Me and Luke wanted to get tacky Christmas jumpers so we went into Primark at the weekend and each tried on about 6 different jumpers. I settled on the Robin bird one, it was just made for me! I do kind of want to get another one but I don't know if its just a waste of money?

In other news, I am loving Avicii's album, my favourite song is 'Dear Boy', I have got that on all the time at the moment!

The Autumn Edit Lust-list

After searching online to compile a little Autumn edit/lust-list, I found so much stuff that I liked that I decided to separate it into a few key areas for the Autumn wardrobe, so here we have coats/jackets, boots, hats & scarves and jumpers! A long wish list, obviously one that I won't be buying every item, just a bit of Autumn inspiration for my wardrobe! 

Coats & Jackets -

autumn wishlist coats
I looked on a few websites for coats and jackets but when I made my way to ASOS I fell in love with so many things, their new season stuff is amazing! Each of these coats are beautiful but I think my favourite is the leather hooded parka.

Boots -

autumn wishlist boots
There are a lot of different boots around on the high street at the moment but I think my personal favourites are flat beige ankle boots from Zara (number 2), they're fur lined and just look so snuggly!
1. Open Ankle Boot Style Court Shoe  2. Flat Ankle Boot  3. Black Dallas Chelsea Boot  4. PAGO Buckle Chelsea Boot   5. Red or Dead Grace ii Boots  6. WOOD Kurt Geiger Boots

Hats - 

autumn wishlist hats

A little while ago I wrote a post about my woolly hat collection, they're my favourite autumn/winter accessory. I love the eyebrow hat from ASOS for a bit of quirky Autumn style.
1. Eyebrow Pom Pom Beanie  2. Wool Mix Cable Funnel Snood  3. Faux Fur Ears Cossack Hat  4. Faux Fur Cossack Burgundy  5. Faux Fur Snood

Jumpers -

autumn wishlist jumpers
Snuggly jumpers are an Autumn must. My favourite is the whole outfit in the centre, I'm also pretty fond of the deep purple jumper bottom right. Early christmas list anyone?

So there we have it, my Autumn high-street current favourites! What are you lusting after this Autumn?

Holiday Blues

Scan2 Scan

So I'm back from Florida! Currently experiencing the major holiday blues and jet lag. Need to get back into the swing of things and start properly job searching. I was going to do a blogpost yesterday but I just didn't get time in the end. Today I filmed a Florida haul for my new YouTube channel but the whole thing was out of focus and shaky when I put it onto the computer for some unknown reason, so it looks like I'm going to have to film the whole thing again tomorrow, how annoying! So instead here is a quick post of my swim with the dolphins in Florida, best thing ever!
