THE KNITTED JUMPER EFFECT.


JUMPER - H&M* | SHORTS - MATALAN (SALE) | BOOTS - H&M* | HAT - F&F
I was a little undecided on whether or not to buy this jumper. Despite not really being sure on it, I've ended up wearing it constantly! It's the perfect throw on and go jumper to really add that winter effect to any casual outfit. My first opinion was that it isn't really my style. I've definitely seen a difference in my style the past few weeks.  From hardly wearing any black, to not being afraid to wear more revealing and body shaping clothing. This has been a good move for me, as I personally feel a lot more comfortable within myself, while learning to work with my body shape.

THOMAS SABO SKULL PENDANT

 SKULL PENDANT - C/O THOMAS SABO VIA JOSHUA JAMES
SILIVER NECKLACE - C/O THOMAS SABO VIA JOSHUA JAMES 
It's not very often I wear a lot of jewellery these days. It's usually just my watch and maybe a statement necklace. Jewellery is such a great way to add and to sometimes even make a outfit. Even the littlest of necklaces like this skull pendant by Thomas Sabo. As you know I've got myself a little obsession with skulls. I even have a tattoo of a skull which is now my favourite tattoo! Along with my window which is full of skull money boxes (well heads.) My style has always been very edgy and "quirky" as a lot of people tell me. Which is why I think the injection of something so small yet so simple can still make a huge impression on the outfit and style I'd be creating. 
I love the necklace by Thomas Sabo. It's simple yet effective style has fitted well into my outfit's the past week, and it's not left my neck. You can shop Thomas Sabo's collection here, and create your own pendant necklace.

KHAKI GREEN OVERLAY DRESS.


DRESS - TOPSHOP | SHOES - TOPSHOP | GILET - H&M | BAG - H&M 
long time no outfit post hey! With the dark nights I've really struggled to get any outfits shot. When you go to work in the dark and leave in the dark you don't have much chance. Today I was determined to snap a few before I popped out. I brought this dress randomly after spotting it in my local OUTFIT. It was one of them "I need it" moments. Since I've worn it a number of times and definitely got my money's worth.

TOP PICKS FROM ALEXANDER WANG FOR H&M

This Thursday (November 6th) the Alexander Wang Collection for H&M launches online and in store from 9am. You can preview the collection and see the piece's here. The price range starts from £7.99 right up to £199.99. Wang has gone for a sports luxe trend within the collection from boxing gloves, to scuba fitted dresses. The colour scheme is very basic, with a monochrome feel. The whole collection is set to be a big hit for H&M and Alexander Wang. When I saw it be announced via instagram this summer I was instantly excited as I'd always been a fan of Wang's stuff. However when the first previews were shown I was some what disappointed in the strange piece's he'd decided to put in the collection. 

I'm lucky enough to of been offered the chance to work the launch at the flagship store in Birmingham. It's going to be my first time working a designer launch for H&M. I've already heard some stories from the rest of the team who have already experienced the craziness of the launches in the past. I'm really looking forward to working the launch and enjoying the vibe. I'm also hoping I can grab myself a few piece's for myself! especially as I can use my staff discount! Above are just a few piece's that caught my eye! have you checked out the Alexander Wang For H&M Collection yet?

MELADO ORGANIC HAIR GROWTH OIL




MELADO ORGANIC HAIR GROWTH OIL TREATMENT - £13.99 C/O OLD WIVES TAIL

If you know me, you will know I'm a big fan of a good hair oil. With my hair being so thick and constantly going dry a hair oil is my best friend. I was kindly sent this hair oil treatment from Old Wives Tail to trial out and to see if it would match up to my usual standards. The first thing I noticed about the product was the smell. For me it was far too strong, and empowering for a oil. Luckily you wash the product out, and don't have to worry about the smell lingering for too long. I started to get a headache. The smell to some people may be fine, however myself it put me off the product. I then continued the steps which were instructed and washed away with the product, and then continued my usual washing routine. After washing away the product and allowing my hair to dry, I instantly noticed the shine and smooth touch of my brand new hair. My hair is usually very frizzy also, due to my natural locals of curls. My hair was a lot more straighter and more maintained than usually, this was another plus for me. 
Over all the product did just what I needed, it gave me shine, and a soft smooth touch. However the only down side to the product was the smell, of course this can go one or two ways for everyone. Then the packaging. I would of preferred a pump, as i felt like I was wasting, or using too much product. Find more products from Old Wives Tail here.

£9.99 H&M AUTUMN DRESS.

DRESS - H&M* | SHOES - H&M* | BAG - H&M*
H&M has done it again. As soon as this dress came in delivery I knew I had to own it. Sadly it had to be kept off the shop floor for a few days until it's launch. I soon grabbed it yesterday when it made it's entrance to the shop. Maybe it was the price, or it's stunning shape. Probably the shocking price of just, £9.99. That's right, £9,99. Also with my staff discount it worked out to only £7.49 even cheaper! The best part about this dress is it's already available in a different pattern for £24.99. This dress is apart of H&M's new value for money products. There's also a faux brown leather skirt which is only £7.99! that's cheaper than Primark! Sadly both the dress & skirt aren't online yet, so I'd pop into your local.

QUICK & SIMPLE SMOKEY EYE WITH BOBBI BROWN

If you saw my previous post you will of seen I attended a Bobbi Brown event, and learnt a thing or two about creating the perfect smokey eye. (that's not too hard either!) I decided I'd take on the tips and trial them out on myself, on camera. I've been meaning to make more Youtube videos for a while now. However when it comes to the editing I either get bored, or think I look like a tool. I will say my editing isn't the best and I'm not looking at the camera much as my mirror was to the side. oops. Also some footage did get deleted so You do only see me creating my base and the eyes. Hopefully you can see how easy the look is to create! 
Over all I'm really happy with the outcome of the look, also as I literally filmed me playing about with the products for the first time. Also my first time trilling Gel Liner and I have to say I LOVE IT! I've decided I'll go into more detail on each product in their own review in different posts. 

PRODUCTS USED FOR THE LOOK

MERRY HILL'S AUTUMN/WINTER FASHION WEEKEND.

The other weekend I made my way to Merry Hill Shopping centre for a spot of shopping with my darling paige, and her family. Merry Hill has always been a favourite of mine for it's easy access, and of course the beautiful thing called late night shopping. amen. Over at Merry Hill they also hold a number of events through-out the year to show off the latest styles and trends that the centre has to offer. Last weekend it was all about the Autumn/Winter trends, my fav! 
Over the weekend they had a range of activities and offers on for the public. From personalising your own canvas bag, to watching the models work their stuff in one of the amazing shows that were shown throughout the weekend in a range of places throughout the centre. There was also Artists Doug Hyde in the Whitehall Gallery showing off his amazing collection. I loved his pieces especially the person and the dog. We all know I have a soft spot for a dog. While at the centre we made sure to check out all the amazing activities which really provided something for everyone. 
I was kindly gifted with a lovely goody bag, and a gift card. I ended up getting a two-piece I'd seen on Primark's instagram which luckily I finally hunted down in Merry Hill! I then had some money left over to stock up on essentials like my winter tights! After a spot of shopping we then made our way to Nando's for some yummy chicken, I really need to lay off the Nando's I'm going far too often. 
Over all I had a fab time once again at the centre and really enjoyed the activities that were put on for the weekend!
