Evening guv’ner,

I am felling rather chipper as the kind and exceptionally clever lady from Confetti & Curves did a lovely feature of my blog on her blog. Check it out here and give her little cyberspace a look for more loveliness.❤

Autumn Winter Fa-shone

Autumn Winter Fa-shone

Is it just me or is it feeling freakin’ Christmasy! 🎅 🎅
It is officially October so I am allowed to say dis. Cwistmas.

Don’t be a grinch. It’s fun if you try. 🎄🎄

My birthday (Mid September) marks for me the end of a beautiful summer (most of the time if England isn’t being S***) and the start of crisp air, scarf wearing, hot chocolate drinking, snuggly season.

Who’s with me? Santa’s freakin’ with me! 🎅 🎅

One great thing about this time of year is Winter fashion and I’m not really one for following trends, I’m more about being yourself and wearing whatever that might be. Here are a few things that I am eyeing up..

❄ Big Slouchy Jumper
Wine Red
£15

★ ☆ ✰ ✮ ✯

This comes in black and blue also but I love the wine red, it will perfectly match my glass of red wine. Now that’s style.

❄ Big Blanket Scarf
Red
£22

★ ☆ ✰ ✮ ✯

I love a good scarf, there’s nothing that says snug more than a scarf and hey presto here’s a scarf that looks good to me. Did I mention I like Scarves?

❄ Floppy Hat 
Black
£18

★ ☆ ✰ ✮ ✯

I do actually already have a floppy woppy hat and as tempting as it is to buy a new one (basically because its got faux snakeskin trim..) I might jazz mine up with an old belt or something. Up-cycle that hat!

❄ Longline Wool Coat
Black
£70
MissGuided
★ ☆ ✰ ✮ ✯

As it’s long it’s perfect for keeping you warm and cosy from head to.. ankle. I wear blacks and grey’s as my neutral colours so this is perfect for working with other items in my wardrobe. At £70 it’s quite an easy sell. It also features in this promotional video which contains many other lustful coats – Out Is In

What are you eyeing up this autumn/winter? x

The house, that started to become a home.

The house, that started to become a home.

Step one of Project 49… strip it back to it’s original structure and see what we were left to work with.

This involved (quite amusingly at times) several layers of wallpaper on wallpaper on wallpaper. If you have never peeled off wallpaper before, my gosh it is addictive. It is just one of those things where you get stuck in and find yourself still at it 3 hours later because it is weirdly satisfying. Anyway, we proceed to strip away the tiles, paper, old flooring, old kitchen, old bathroom, light fittings and anything else that needs to make way for shiny new counterparts. See the piccies below for more! Once the prep work is done, we bring in the heavies… (click on the pics to see a slideshow)
