"COMING BACK TO WHERE YOU STARTED IN NOT THE SAME AS NEVER LEAVING."

Reading: A Hat Full Of Sky- Terry Pratchett

This is the very last post without my new camera- from now on all photos will be from my current love of my life; a beautiful second hand Canon 350d. I love it. I am still a little awkward with all the settings but I LOVE it, and cannot wait to show you all my new  photos.

Hat: New Look
Faux Fur Coat: New Look
Velvet Playsuit: Primark (similar here)
Socks: Primark
Garters: DIY
Creepers: Camden (similar here)
Bag: River Island
Necklace: Topman

I have officially decided that adding a fur jacket to any outfit makes it winter appropriate. Faux fur is amazing! Warm, cosy and I love it. I'm a very happy lady now its officially autumn (October is autumn for me) so its fur time! I love my leopard print jacket, and I have a short purple cutie and 'wookie' jacket (very brown and furry) that will be popping up constantly. I personally think that everyone should have a Leopard print faux fur coat in their wardrobe. I love my New Look jacket, but its a few years old now, where as the first from ASOS looks awesome, and I like the short second jacket from New Look; but the third from Boohoo is the closest to my coat.



Today I feel a lot like death. I'm not exaggerating- I feel awful. Saturday me and my sister Gemma went to the Look Show (it was fantastic and a post will be up soon- there are so many fantastic looks I am doing a lot of research to show you all my favourite items while trying NOT to buy them all). I had an amazing time- not just for seeing the fantastic High street A/W collections (its a hard choice between preferring the River Island collection, Kate Moss for Mango collection or the beauty of the Boohoo outfit); but also having a girly day with Gemma. I love family days! But starting at 12:30pm with a glass of wine, several champagnes and cocktails at the show and then meeting the rest of my family at the pub lead to some heavy drinking on a near empty stomach (the Look show canapes were not veggie friendly- but smelt and looked amazing). Massive hangover yesterday, and still feeling it today and probably tomorrow too. I am that out of practise drinking!

In other news I have bought some more future DIY materials, received a few items in the post (including an amazing bag!) and been reading far too much to the blogging ratio.

Does anyone else feel like their attention span has gone a little out of the window? I honestly feel like the majority  of the time I can't keep focus (mostly as I've not been wearing my glasses so I've been struggling with a headache nearly constantly) and needed something to bring my attention back up to the norm. So I have been reading- retraining my brain as much as possible to concentrate on other tasks. Its silly to think that by constantly reading I'm retraining my mind but I feel like its working.

P.S. I completely forgot to mention that I have re-dyed my hair. Although I have dyed it the same tone as before, without the added highlights its one colour, and also (strangely) although it is actually the same tone as before it looks lighter where its grabbed at my blond roots and glows more orange in the light now its monotone (my winter preference). I feel like Chris Evans (woooo!!)

  31. Great looking coat! Very timely for the holiday season. Remember that if your coat gets completely soaked with water, you should take it to a professional fur cleaner immediately – fur cleaner, not a dry cleaner.
