A few of my Autumn/Winter essentials for the chilly months ahead. Of course I cant pick one, however I have just purchased the woolen coat on the top left and it is honestly the comfiest and warmest jacket I have ever owned.

Present Predicaments.

Hello Sunday!

There has been a lot of birthdays recently and it got me thinking how difficult it is to actually buy a nice, meaningful personalised gift for someone these days. So after word of mouth and doing a little digging myself I managed to find some really unique birthday ideas.  

Choose which lid you would like
Choose the colour
Choose a message for the bottom
personalise your gift wrap box
Nails Inc is the first Idea , on there website you are now able to design your own nail polish for you or a friend which is great as you can tailor make it to your friends taste. at quite a hefty price tag of £20 it is on the pricey side however nails inc is good quality polish, and is worth it.

The second idea I heard about from some friends, and is for all the book lovers out there lets you see merchandise reflected from some of your favourite books. The most famous quotes are already there but if you would like a special quote I'm sure there would be no problem.

Property of 'Blurb'

The last idea is a sight called where you can create your own book or photo book. This would be a really great present as you can make it so personal. There is also a lot of different ideas you can do with the books. For example if someone you know has been travelling , gather all there photos up and put something together,  an instagram photo book is also very popular. At the end of the day it's what you think they would like best.

OOTD 18/09/13

I had a late start at work today so thought I would actually make an effort before everything got covered in smoothie. I just bought this Pinafore from Forever 21 which is great. It didn't break the bank and you can wear it over and over again and make it look different every time. There's so many variations of pinafore's out there right now whether it's a patterned or a plain.

Wear your Pinafore with a basic tee in the daytime or a detailed crop top in the evening, tights, an over sized bag and some chunky boots.

Winter Boots.

The time has sadly come to be searching for ye olde winter boot again. it may seem a bit pessimistic looking for winter boots in September, however it's an investment and since there's snow due in October I'm not taking any risks. 

The chelsea boot remains the winning shoe regarding comfort and durability however if you want to jazz things up cut out boots are extremely popular at the moment and come in all shapes and sizes. Wear your statement boots with a pair of fluffy socks, skinny jeans, retro sweat and an oversized woolen coat.

Well spent Wednesdays.

 Me again.

I had another day off from work today which I was cheesin about. I had the dentist at 9:00am which put a bit of a downer on things but apparently I have 'very healthy gums', quids in.

 There is a lovely wee cafe just up from the dentist, so after about 4 espressos I decided to dive into my new book 'the fault in our stars' it's looking promising. After 4 hours of sitting solo my gal pal Mila joined me for some hearty soup and homemade bread which was bliss and we headed out into the chilly Autumn day.                                          

Bagged a coat for 18 pounds, bargaainn!

OOTD. 10/09/13

I had a day off from work today so didn't get out of bed until 12. After watching the exhilarating 'bargain hunt' decided to finally leave my room and walk my dog which was equally exciting. It was a shame cause the day seemed so short and the light started to fade but I just managed to catch it and took some photos of my outfit today for everyone to see. Quality.
