As autumn is now approaching (the leaves are falling!) the darker shades are soon becoming my new go to colours. The other week me and my friend went on a road trip up to Manchester. I'd never been to the Trafford centre before so I was fully over whelmed with how much it had to offer. I did end up picking up a few treats, despite the fact I shouldn't be spending any money. My friend was after the Mac lip pencil and as soon as she found it I wanted it too. So we both ended up purchasing the lip pencil in shade Plum. It's the perfect purple/brown shade for the autumn months. 
The week before I'd also ordered one of H&M's new lipsticks from their all new make up collection. I've been so excited at work for the launch, although my store isn't getting the range I'm planning on visiting the Nottingham store to have a good nose soon! However when it arrived it was then I realised (despite the fact they look different in the picture) they are in fact the same shade. This resulted to the perfect combination for the perfect lip. I'm really impressed with quality and texture of the H&M lipstick, I'd tried a few bits from their beauty range before. Although the quality wasn't as good as it is now. Also can we talk about how beautiful the packaging is?

It's been so long since I've attended a blogging event, however on Sunday I made my way into Birmingham to meet up with my lovely Paige for a cocktail although we just ended up getting food, and of course it had to be a cheeky wagamama's lunch didn't it.  We then made our way to The Body Shop store in the Bullring. The event was to celebrate the launch of their new collection, which is going to bring the spa to your home! At the event we were split up into a range of teams where we got to have our own treatments to our own needs. We were asked to fill out a form about how we were feeling, how we wanted to feel. This then matched the perfect at home products to really suit us.  Me being me, I ended up trying a bit of everything but I felt so smooth after! It was also nice to be made to feel so relaxed, and at home by the Body Shop staff! Over all the event was so peaceful and it really was about us being made to feel like we were at a spa, despite the fact we wasn't and that we cud take home this relaxation with the products! 

To shop the new collection visit your local Body Shop store or Buy online here.

Only the other day I was thinking to myself how I barely buy anything from Primark anymore.  That was until last week, there is a range of on trend key piece's for amazing prices at the minute and I just can't get enough! One item I picked up was this skirt for only £10! I know H&M brought out a similar one a few months back and it sold out! Retailing at £19.99 however for £10 your going to get the Primark Version. As you can probably tell I'm obsessed with the button up style skirt at the moment, I even brought a white one and I got so many compliments on it when I wore it to work Monday! I'm finding the A line fit really flattering and a great way to dress a little more girly for a change. 

I've also joined DEPOP again! have a nose!

There are two trends that I love at the minute, fringing and suede. When I popped into TOPSHOP in the bullring last week and had a nose I hoped I wouldn't find anything, however me being me that never happens. I ended up spotting these shoes, oh lordy and I fell in love. If a shoe was to be made exactly for me this would be it. My favourite style of shoe at the moment is the open toe, suede I love it on my clothing so why not my shoes? then fringing! It seems everything I buy at the minute has the boho trend in the form of fringing and I can't get enough. I've been wearing these shoes to work also the past week and with my job meaning I'm on my feet for 8 hours I need a comfy shoe and these do the trick! The shoe is also available in a a Tan shade, perfect for creating a 70's trend.

wow I've actually managed to link to pretty much all of items on their websites. That's a first. Hopefully you will all hate me now as you'll end up snapping up this outfit. I have to say this outfit is pretty cheap considering it's one of the current popular looks within the trends. I can't get enough of the 70's trend, it's fresh, edgy and the colours are dreamy. 
I've been after a little denim skirt for a while now, barring in mind I haven't owned once since I was about 9, I was after a more key piece to add to my wardrobe. Then I spotted this beauty in New Look.  at 19.99 considering a range of other retails, this skirt is a total steal and literally exactly what I was after to complete my 70's look. I bet you can all tell that yellow is slowly becoming my new favourite colour, it's just a fresh look to add to any outfit and I can't get enough.

Another awkward 'all H&M' outfit. I ended up buying this playsuit as it was returned to our store, which meant it was a odd. And with a ladies rehang this week I was going to get rid of a odd. However with how much I love the white version of this playsuit, I knew I needed the yellow version too! It's quite a dressy playsuit as I usually only wear my white one on nights out. However I feel the yellow is a bit more causal and to make the look more cars, I added the khaki jacket for that laid back look.

A girl was wearing this swing dress at the meeting I went to the other week, and I fell deep in love with it. It's not often denim does a lot for me. I've just never been a huge fan of denim. However here I am channeling double denim. I picked up the dress at 24.99 and then the jacket in the sale for £7 and then some cheeky staff discount too! Although I'm not too sure if the jacket is a keeper, It's not my usual style. While I'm a everyday monochrome wearer the jacket isn't fully my cup of tea. I think I just buy things for the sake of it these days.

This summer my favourites print has been the tropical print. And after having a whole trend with the tropical print, I wanted everything with the print. This shirt was one of them, "it's pretty shocking but I want it anyway" purchases. I ended dup buying it and It's a classic throw on and let it do the talking piece. No need to add a fancy statement necklace or snazzy bottom the shirt own's the outfit.

STRIPES | I seriously can't bloody get enough of stripes. I think I'd happy buy three striped top's that look exactly the same and happily assure myself I need all three. The print is such a classic trend that will always be popular within current trends.
SUNGLASSES | At the moment we are all a little confused by what's happening with the weather. One minute the sun is shining and we are getting a cheeky tan, next thing we know we're being pissed on. So these are my go-to sunglasses for my drive home when the sun actually is out and I need to block away them rays.
LIPSTICK | in shade Mademoiselle. I picked up this little beauty on my way to Malia. The holiday was all about relaxing and having myself some me time, and a laugh with my best friend. So we both got ourselves a luxury Chanel Lipstick. I've always been a fan of Chanel lippy's, however I only really take the plunge on special occasions. This one though has become a everyday favourite. It's my instant lip fix for when I start work  at 7am. 
BRONZE GODDESS | Another little treat on my way to Malia was this perfume from Estee Lauder! I'd been after this for so long but couldn't find it anywhere to give it a good sniff! when I saw it and smelt it, damn I was in love. The scent instantly sums up summer for me. 
POLARIOD CAMERA | My brother brought me my polaroid camera for my birthday and I can't get enough of it. Photography has always been a passion of mine, from studying it, To always getting a new camera just to go shoot some pretty flowers when I was younger. I will admit I've mainly used my polaroid just for selfies, But I'm planning on buying more film and making a scrap book!

I didn't realise how much I missed the whole process of blogging. The hour long photo-shoot for just one outfit, styling my own outfit instead of a mannequin at work. I'm going to try to create more of a schedule for my posts, from beauty-fashion and lifestyle. I've really missed blogging and being able to be creative. 
This is one of my go-to outfit at the moment for work. I've lived in this dress that I picked up at Zara a while back, it's a simple throw on and go dress that really doesn't need any help. I'm really into the whole black and white stripes again, let's face it, it's a staple pattern hat will never go out of style. Then the jacket. I brought this a while back, and I now have the khaki version too!
