Jumper from Monsoon, Skirt from ASOS, Shoes from New Look
I've had these boots for years and I'm so glad I have a chance to wear them again. This wee jumper was for work, there was just something about it that I thought would be good for this winter, plus it's super cosy. Its getting colder and colder so I don't think I'll be able to keep wearing this skirt for much longer, unless I invest in very very thick tights. It's cute though. I always think a little black skirt is a wardrobe staple because it makes it really easy to put together an outfit.
I don't usually have the time or energy to do a lot of make-up in the morning. So most days I do this basic, five product, look. I think that it's enough to make it look like I made an effort, but not so much that I have to spend more than 5 minutes on it.
Burgundy is the colour of the season for me. I've treated myself to quite a few goodies for autumn/winter and a lot of them are the same colour.. opps. You might recognise some of the stuff from recent wishlists too, hehe. I'm obsessed with this hat, I've worn it pretty much every day for the last few week, I just love the style of it, and it protects my hair from the chilly Scottish weather.
A lot of places, including ASOS, have gone into mid season sale. So I've been scrolling through sites looking for things to treat myself to, now that the chilly winter weather is upon us.
I'm seeing myself drawn to a lot of check print and burgundy, unsurprisingly. I also love a bit of faux fur, and chunky winter boots. So here's some of the goodies I've had my eye on for A/W 14.
I love this time of year. Yeah, it's a bit chilly but I'm Scottish, I'm used to the cold.
Also, as you may have noticed, I've not been posting as much recently. I'm really trying to get back into it but I don't want to put myself under any more pressure trying to post every second day, so until I can get on top of everything I'm going to try to make sure that I post at least twice a week.
I was meant to put this post up about a week ago, but things are really busy just now, so I'm sorry about that. Anyway, while I was at the Lush Christmas launch I picked up a few wee goodies for myself. I'm usually not a bath person, but I couldn't resist trying out some of the delicious smelling bath bombs, and somehow I ended up with quite a few.. oops.
So here's a wee sneak peek at some of the things I picked up.
I've been using Baked Alaska pretty much every day since I bought it and I love it. It's really fruity and uplifting. I've been using the spot treatment on and off but I haven't seen much improvement so I'll have to keep testing out that one. I might do individual reviews of each of the new things, so let me know if there's anything in particular you want to know about.
