August Must Haves

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6
So with August coming to a close it is time for my August Must Haves. It has been so difficult to narrow my wishlist down to just six items, but I am definitely going to purchase all of these in the next few weeks to see me through the autumn season. So here we go…

With the weather starting to turn cooler it is time to invest in a new moisturiser. I have heard great things about the Enzymion moisturiser from LUSH, so now is the perfect opportunity to try out this moisturiser that is suitable for oily skin like mine.
I LOVE this blanket cardigan from New Look, firstly because it is burgandy, my favourite autumn colour and it also looks so cosy to wear. I’d wear this belted with a plain top and jeans or leggings for a casual autumn look.
My hair is looking a little bit worse for wear at the moment. It is in need of a good cut and some TLC. This hair masque by Charles Worthington has had some very good reviews so I am looking forward to seeing if it can nourish my dry and knotty ends.
I am looking for a new bag to use for work after the strap on my Michael Kors bag broke and I love this smart backpack. The colours are perfect for autumn, anything oxblood is a sure win in my books.
I have got my six MAC empties at the ready and I can’t wait to visit my local MAC counter to trade them in for this gorgeous shade. I love a berry lip in the autumn so this is one lippy I have been dying to get my hands on.
These ankle boots are just beautiful and I am hoping to get them for myself as a little birthday treat. I think that I will pretty much live in these boots through autumn and winter as they will go with everything.
What is on your wishlist right now? What do you think of my August Must Haves?

After a long time away from my blog due to starting a new job and being really busy I have finally returned and I am so excited to get back into the swing of things.

I thought I’d start things off with a little post about some jewellery that I am currently lusting after. Like most girls, I am a huge fan of the sparkly stuff because it always completes an outfit – even a simple t-shirt and jeans combo.

So here are a few of my favourite pieces this month, hope you enjoy!

1 – Purple Mix Gem Chandelier Drop Earrings from Chelsea Doll, £10

With statement necklaces being a huge jewellery trend over the last few years I often find myself neglecting my earring collection. I am hoping to start collecting a few interesting pairs to wear with my hair up and I love these Chelsea Doll beauties. Anything pastel is a clear winner in my books and with the trend due to continue throughout the autumn I think these are a great transitional piece.

2 – CLARAMAE Pink Crystal Druzy Ring from Rock ‘N Rose, £22

I adore druzy rings, I don’t know if it stems back to my childhood when I liked to collect sparkly gemstones (I am such a magpie). I love that every ring is unique as the colour and shape varies due to it being a natural stone. 


3 – AMELIA Statement Necklace from Dolly Bow Bow, £14

Dolly Bow Bow’s necklaces are always stunning and I think that this Amelia statement necklace might just be my favourite so far. I think that this would work well with a pastel dress for a wedding or event and come the autumn, will look great with jumpers in complementary pastel hues.


4 – Dark Blue Clustered Gem Choker Necklace from New Look, £9.99

Sometimes bright and bold is the way to go, and this New Look statement choker necklace is a winner for me. Bright blues like this really suit my colour palate and I think this would be great to smarten up jeans and a white shirt or t-shirt.

5 – Zodiac sign Pendant from Amelia May, £10

I love a quirky pendant to add some intrigue to a simple top or dress and this Zodiac necklace from Amelia May caught my eye. I’m not a believer of star signs and horoscopes, but I think that this is great for those who are, or those who are looking for something a little bit different.


6 – Fine Filigree Tassel Earrings from ASOS, £8

I am always on the look out for interesting black earrings because they go with absolutely everything. The tassels on these are very cute and would look great with an up do for a night out instead of a statement necklace.

Which of these pieces is your favourite? What shops are you loving for statement jewellery right now?

Autumn Days: Punk Picks

So Autumn is finally upon us, and I have to say that I am actually very happy about it. Don’t get me wrong I love the sunshine and warmer Summer months, but there is something about Autumn that just cannot be beaten. My favourite part just has to be the fashion. I love being able to keep myself toastie in thick cable knits, boots, fur coats, hats and scarves. So cosy!

I wanted to share with you a few of my favourite pieces that I have seen over the last few weeks. The punk trend is already big this Autumn so I wanted to show you my take on this style that isn’t too extreme for those who are more girly girl than edgy rocker. I bought these gorgeous boots yesterday and I have a feeling that I am going to be living in them this season, they are right on trend but also great for anyone shopping on a budget like me!

What do you think of my punk picks? Will you be rocking the punk trend this A/W? What are your punk inspired fashion finds?
