23 Nov

It was a very cold day in Liverpool today and so I layered up to stop the chill.


Black jeans are my current fav and this pair were really cheap from Primark, they’re a great fit. These Vans shoes are pretty much the only leopard print you’ll find in my wardrobe as I tend to stay away from this over-done pattern on clothing.
I have had this Zara coat for ages now but it’s such a classic colour and shape that it always fits my outfits. The big H&M is great for shopping days, I’m in love with my grey Zara jumper and the denim shirt adds a little contrast and was from Primark.

Taking the Shine Off

19 Nov

I take good care of my nails and always get a little alarmed when I see natural nails ravaged by years of acrylic damage, they look so sore! Everyone has their own style but I’m afraid false nails are not my thing and with such great products to care for and enhance the appeal of going au natural I kind of think they’re unnecessary.

I am loving matte nails at the moment and got myself a great little matte top coat from H&M, the bottle design is simplistic and this does what it says on the label.

I painted this top coat over one of my favourite colour polishes, Iconic by Revlon and I love the result.



OOTD, Saturday Shopping

18 Nov

I went shopping this Saturday which is becoming a regular occurrence now that the autumn/winter season is fully underway. It’s my favourite fashionable time of year and I love living somewhere that has changing seasons and a fall in temperatures, perfect for knitwear!





I wore this chunky sailor striped jumper from Topshop, dark grey Joni jeans (also Topshop) and heeled ankle boots with metal and embroidery detailing from H&M.

Black & Gold

16 Nov

These are a few of my favourite things
New and old
All in the theme of
Black & Gold

As it is November and we’re all in need of a small boost I thought I’d show you some of the things that are helping to brighten my gloomy days.

IMG_1900.JPGNew shoes are always guaranteed to bring a smile to my face, this lovely pair from Zara were £39.99 and in my opinion are very Christmas party worthy.

IMG_1901.JPG Of course there had to be a perfume in this list and I adore this one by Dolce & Gabbana and if I smell like the beautiful Scarlet Johansson perhaps I’ll find a French man to marry!

IMG_1902.JPG This wedding favour sits with my perfumes and I see it everyday, it’s a lovely reminder of my best friends amazing day and a subtle hint to be like a strong lioness.

IMG_1903.JPG I love this chic little pencil case from H&M, I keep my essential pencils and pens in it for off-the-cuff drawing as its compact enough to fit in my handbag.

IMG_1904.JPG This small ceramic and gold trinket box is where I keep matches for lighting candles, it’s prettier to look at than a match box.

IMG_1905.JPG You may have seen this watch on my OOTD posts because I wear it every day. It’s by Anglo-Swedish partnership Larsson & Jennings and was a gift to myself at the end of a bad year, it’s a very beautiful watch and reminds me that independence is so important, even if you’re in a partnership.

IMG_1906.JPG I’ve had this wrist cuff for years, so long I can’t remember where I bought it. It’s only a costume piece but has a very transformative effect when paired with a simple grey tee or black dress.

IMG_1907.JPG This new tee from H&M is great with high waisted skinny jeans and I love the graphic logo encased in super shiny shimmery gold.


OOTD Denim & Knit

15 Nov

I felt like giving my mid-week work attire a bit of a casual twist with a bit of denim this week. I teamed my Primark knitted navy v-neck jumper with a H&M faded denim shirt and black bandage skirt (also H&M).
The outfit felt neat enough for the office, which is quite relaxed on clothing anyway and a little bit preppy which I love.



Natural makeup and nails in a dark maroon Topshop varnish and I was ready to go!

Low Key Outfit of the Day

13 Nov

Sometimes I like my hair a bit messy and my outfit to be devoid of bright colours, not to blend in but to be a little anti-styled. I don’t want to look like no effort has been made, I want to look effortless.
It’s de rigeur to look ‘done’ in Liverpool, immaculate makeup, blow-dried hair, false nails. It’s good to go against the grain and show ones natural assets, don’t cover up your loveliness with fakery girls! IMG_1698.JPG


Black vest dress & chunky knit cardigan H&M, shoes & tights Primark. Watch, Larsson & Jennings.

Outfit of the day

11 Nov

I don’t like Mondays, that’s an understatement really but the point is they’re bad! Really bad! I find myself searching, when I should be on my way to work already, for something happy to wear that will make me feel better about the day that marks the beginning of the working week.
So my Monday outfit consisted of a beautifully soft, warm, Zara turtleneck sweater and a New Look pencil skirt with a vibrant floral print.


Worn with black tights and a pair of H&M boots with a chunky heel and tough zip.

I did a cat-eye flick and a pink lip colour, Mac ‘Hip ‘N’ Happy’ lip pencil.
