I tried so hard not to like this jacket, I mean it's just so impractical and I kept telling myself that. Every time I've wore it, it's rained and I've had to take it off and turn it inside out. It's beautiful though, the fur is really long and soft.

My Travel Bucket List

01. New York
Anyone who knows me will know New York has always held a little spot in my heart. I always said by the time I'm 25 I want to have moved there. I blame hours and hours of Gossip Girl and Sex and the City. I imagine if I did actually go I'd never want to sleep out of fear of missing out on something. I'd probably step off the plane and drop dead with excitement, but this place is always number 1 on my bucket list.

02. Scandinavia
Kinda cheating but if your going to visit one you might as well visit the lot whilst your there. Am I right? Hell yeah! I just find that whole corner of the world absolutely fascinating, it started out with a love for Stockholm that has now stretched out over Norway, Denmark and Sweden.

03. Paris
What girl doesn't want to visit Paris? I feel like this one is a possibility in the near future, I mean there's no excuses really, just a hop skip and a jump on the Eurostar and I'll be climbing up the Eiffel Tower and strolling through the Louvre in no time. It would also be rude not to stop off in Versailles whilst I'm in the area.

04. Rome
Rome is one of those places I don't think I'll believe exist until I visit for myself. The whole place is just shrouded in so much history; the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, and I'd definitely have to visit the Vatican.

05. Santorini
I first saw a picture of Santorini on Pinterest and was completely obsessed with the beautiful blue water and the stacked up white houses on the hillside. It looks like the perfect place to spend a week away from the world. Oh goodness, someone fund my trip here now please!

October is my favourite colour

H&M hat (similar)

It has to be said that this time of year is my absolute favourite, it just makes the most beautiful backdrop for photos. A Sunday calls for lazy dressing so I threw on my new flannel shirt that I bought two sizes bigger for that 'I'm redecorating' kinda look. My gorgeous new camel coat from Missguided puts my coat collection total to somewhere around 15 or 16, but I think I'm done for this year now, partly because my coat stand is full and it almost toppled over the other week. I also have a love hate relationship with hats in winter, they're the perfect autumn accessory but so bloody annoying when it's windy! It's a cruel world isn't it!

The Sunday Post: A Little Life Update

I seem to have taken an unannounced week off from this here little corner of the internet. I also seem to look like the moodiest person in the world in every photo I ever upload, I guess thats Chronic Bitch Face for you. 

1. I finished my training in Tamworth and I've just finished my first week back in Telford as a real life visual merchandiser with responsibilities and things. I can no longer get away with using "I'm only a trainee" as my excuse - damn! It was never my plan to go back to Telford, but I'm so happy I have. No more 5am starts and hour drives to work, and I guess the team aren't so bad either. Timehop told me that on this day last year I got offered a 16 hour contract so I'm pretty pleased with where I'm at right now.

2. Look how long my hair has got! I haven't had it cut in about 5 months which is disgusting really. I'm itching to have it cut a bit shorter though and since the nice team at Toni & Guy are offereing 20% off to Town Centre staff it's swaying me even more. If only I wasn't so funny about going to the hair salon.

3. I'm heading back to the gym this week. I'm such a disgusting slob I haven't been since June, but I'm ready to make some changes. I wouldn't say I'm unhappy when I look in the mirror, but I know I can do better. I'll break back in nice and gently with some yoga on Tuesday evening.

A little bit of Gingham

H&M dress (similar here)
Primark coat (similar here)
Primark Limited Edition bag

When this little gem arrived in work for a teeny £12.99, hop, skip and a jump to the till I went, especially since I've wanted a gingham dress for a while. I paired it with my blue coat, which I think is definitely getting the most wear so far this season out of all the coats in my crazy large collection. My new Primark bag came for a spin too, I saw it in Becca Rose's Keys to the Store video and knew I had to have one, I spent about ten minutes in Primark taking them all of the stand to pick the one that looked the most pristine. Lame I know.

Bullring Autumn Fashion Fix Catwalk Show

I think we can start by saying these photos aren't my best, I felt like I needed about 3 extra pairs of arms to photograph everything I wanted to. Nonetheless, the Bullring Autumn Fashion Fix was a really great show. 

I tried to just pick out my favourite looks from the show but there ended up being quite a few, I think because there was just so much variety. Still, I'd rather share them, than keep them to myself, especially since the styling was so well done. If you're curious as to where something is from just leave it in the comments as I have a product list. I certainly wouldn't want you to miss out now would I!
