Docs & Socks


Where the socks are from (R-L):
Elle Macpherson 'gift set'
Primark
All the rest topshop.
 Recently I have been neglecting my Doc Martens a little bit due to the 'not so new' addition of my Coltrane dupes, but I still have been wearing them a lot! As I do have an overflowing sock draw, I love love love looove to pair my Docs with different socks and make them look a bit different, therefore that's what I've been doing recently!

Favourite online shop: The City Rack

All clothes from http://www.thecityrack.com
If you've been reading my blog for a reasonable amount of time, you will know that I have an addiction to online shopping. Yes, I did just admit that on the Internet. I'm not ashamed, there are worse things to be addicted to...
So as I love online shopping, I am constantly looking for new places to shop, so when I stumbled upon 'The City Rack' it was love and first sight!
The City Rack is a online shop with the most gorgeous clothes. If you like to dress simple, but with a bit of a twist, you will loooove The City Rack. The site is incredibly easy to use, it's got different sections for different types of clothing/shoes/accessories and I personally think the layout is gorgeous. Plus the customer service is great, they're super lovely and helpful! Also the prices are FAB-U-LOUS (anyone else got a particular voice come to there head when reading that?! No, just me...), super affordable and reasonable delivery charges! Of course the clothes are gorgeous too, and bang on trend.
The items in the collage are some of my personal favourite items, though I do love virtually there whole shop... The jumpers and tops look so comfy and you could easily dress them up or down! The festive jumper is just, wow. Who doesn't love a festive jumper? aaa, Disco pants. I have been lusting for a pair now for well over a year. They will never go out of style and the more and more I see Zoe from 'Zoella' wear them, I get more and more jealous! Snoods are a must  for winter, noone likes a cold neck after all. This blazer is my favourite on this 'collage', it just looks so classy yet you could easily dress it up or down. Oooohh imagine the blazer with my Coltrane dupes...ohh wow. The disco pants, the mesh jumper, snood and blazer would go perfectly together. This burgundy dress would be perfect for new years eve, or any special occasion really. Just look at the detailing...phwoar. Fringe bags are beautiful. That's all I have too say. I love the big tote bags, especially with fringing. I could not resist this beauty at all, look at it...

Anywaaay, getting onto the point. The City Rack is a gorgeous shop which I think competes with many bigger online shops, and is my personal favourite at the moment! So I may not shut up about it for a long time ahah! Their link is www.thecityrack.com, go check them out!

Currently, I'm listening to Gwen Stefani - Hollaback Girl, don't even ask me how I came to end up listening to it! But it's kind of a good song...also Tom Odell and Gabrielle Aplin have been on repeat, full volume of course. Yes, that's my Sunday for you. Music and failing at homework. Enjoy your Sunday!

Comment, follow and all that jazz!

OOTD: THE FESTIVE LEGGINGS ARE OUT


Oversized cream jumper - H&M
Festive leggings - New Look
Frilly socks - Primark
Boots - Doc Martens
Do I need to say anything else? The 'title' of this post kind of sums it up. This isn't your typical 'fashion blogger ootd' which includes some sort of 'on trend' clothing item, or an incredible jumper which everyone wants. It's just one of those outfits which everyone has worn at some point when being lazy around the house, and I thought why don't I just show you guys. A fair few fashion bloggers post ootd's of their favourite outfits, whereas I kind of post mine when I have time to photograph them *bad blogger*. But if everyone wheres these sort of outfits when they're feeling lazy, I thought I'd just share you with mine (plus these leggings just scream Christmas!). Theres nothing fashionable or incredible about this look! But don't panic I will be back with outfits where I've made a bit more of an effort!
^wow, I really don't know what I just rambled on about...Anyway, I'm sure if you've been reading a lot of blogs at the moment you must be sick to death of reading all about how autumn/winter is here (like you didn't know!), and how the crunching leaves and pumpkin spiced lattes are there favourite 'things' right now. So I won't ramble on about that, even though I could write a book on how much I love A/W.
I've now been sat here for 10 minutes trying to figure out what to say. But instead of boring you with 500 words about my non existant  social life and school work, I think I'll go! Speak soon!

What I've been loving this week...#1

Christmas is just over a month away, how crazy is that?! Everyday its getting closer to that point where its acceptable to listen to Christmas songs in public and start decorating the house and wearing those ridiculously festive jumpers. I can't wait. Believe me, you will not stop hearing me talk about Christmas, sorry not sorry.
Anyway, lets get on with what I've been loving this week...
Vaseline - As you all will know unless you've been under a rock this week, it's getting pretty chilly outside. The layering of shirts and jumpers and coats has finally begun! Therefore with it being colder my lips can get chapped pretty easily, but recently when I wake up and before I got to bed I apply Vaseline and I haven't got chapped lips yet. Woo, this time last year my lips would've been all yucky and cracked. I now swear by it!

Sweet popcorn - I have a very bad addiction to popcorn... I even have my own popcorn maker, impressive I know! I could eat 3 large bags in a row. In fact within 3 nights I'd eaten a large bag of toffee popcorn all by myself, and I have no regrets because it tasted like heaven.

Urban decay Naked Palette - I got this for my birthday last summer and have used it every time I wear makeup. All the shades are so wearable and the amount of different looks you can get from it is ridiculous! Although it is £36 it's worth every penny, it doesn't crease and the pigmentation is just incredible.

Gabrielle Aplin 'English rain' Album - If you like Gabrielle Aplin we can immediately be best friends. She is perfect, this album is constantly on repeat in my bedroom. It's so soothing yet not depressing. My favourite song is 'Home' but I love all of them. She's also gorgeous and her style is flawless. Someone let me be her!? Even just for a day...

Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray - I brought this ages ago in Boot's and forgot about it, I recently discovered it and its amazing. I have naturally dead straight hair and it's boring. Therefore if I spray some of this beauty in my hair then scrunch it, it creates beautiful soft waves. Plus if I've made the effort to curl my hair then if I apply this and then scrunch it makes the curls look so natural and pretty. It's great for adding texture and it also smells lovely.

I hope you've all had  a lovely weekend! Yesterday I went to see some fireworks and did the whole sparklers and bonfire evening with some family friends which was lovely, and now I'm just catching up with homework and already panicking about what to wear next Friday for non-uniform day...oh the stress...

OOTD: COSY FLORALS

(bottom left picture was taken in normal light, others with flash in case you were wondering why it's darker!)
Today's been one of those days were the time isn't my friend. I seem to have been late to everything possible today, so on the bus back from school I just thought my evenings going to be organised and productive. So in the space of an hour I've taken blog pictures, worked out, eaten a yogurt (you can never beat a munch bunch strawberry yogurt, yummm!) and am now writing this. That's pretty productive in my life!
Much like the time, the weather didn't help that much with taking these pictures. If you're a fellow fashion blogger you will know that when wearing loose clothing when the wind blows you'll look 10 times bigger than you are and that the clothing just expands a looooot. But we can deal with that...

My oversized jumper is from H&M and is sooo comfy and just one of those jumpers that you can snuggle up in and feel all relaxed and chilled. My loose (kind of) tailored trousers are from New Look and the floral print is just perfect for all year as florals are just a classic print. Especially when they're 'dark' floral, if that makes any sense?

Of course my outfit wouldn't be complete without some sort of 'edgy ish' shoe. My coltrane dupes are just perfect.

Off to hopefully be more productive with homework, but I severely doubt that. Oh, also I have started being a lot more organised with my blog and have actually made a schedule, so there will be a post on that soon (if I scheduled it that is...)!

Halfterm Haul!

Half term is over *goes and cries in a corner* sadly, therefore school starts tomorrow and the endless art coursework piles in and revision...can't wait. But this half term I did a little bit of shopping, so thought I'd show you the few items/products I got.
