Fall Nail Colour Must-Haves

Models Own HyperGel in Brunette Red
NYC Colour in Upper East Side

Nail colour is an essential for fall, with so many chunky knits and oversized silouettes keeping my nails looking killer is super important and adds a little beauty to any look. I mean I never used to be a perfectly polished, long nail type of girl but you have to admit they can look amazing, especially with a handful of rings thrown on! Even though my style is pretty ever-changing (I'm just growing with it) I've found these nail colours match with pretty much anything I wear so they're for sure my A/W beauty must-haves.

This one is probably my fave, it's the perfect nude colour. I wear it for work, school , everything. It's just that little something extra you need to add a little elegance to a look plus it dries super quick and barely chips, which is impressive given what i put my nails through! It's so good that even my mum has stolen it, on multiple occasions

Okay, so i don't know about you but my make up draw is just full of red nail varnishes, forever searching for the perfect red. Well I think I've managed it with this one, it's a really deep blood and a little bit vampy which is perfect and with halloween literally tomorrow?! 
The only downside is it takes age to dry completely, silly me fell asleep an hour after painting my nails and woke up with my hair imprinted in the varnish, not cute.

Unbranded in Brown(?)
This one was a lucky find in the bargain bin at Superdrug but I thought i'd show you anyway seen as i'm wearing it so much. It's not the greatest when it ones to coverage, it takes more than a couple of coats to get a good colour but its such a nice colour I don't mind. It also lasts ages and barely chips at all. Not everyone is a brown nail kind person but trust me this one is super cute.

What are your favourite nail colours for fall? Red, beige, orange?

Excuse my stained blue nails, note to self: wear gloves when dying your hair!

Learning to Juggle

Duster Coat - Boohoo
Top - Primark
Skirt - H&M

Hey guys, this post is sooo late, we shot the pictures about a two weeks ago but trying to balance school, blogging and work is getting on top of me a little, but trust me I'm trying to work on that. It's just about learning to juggle i suppose.

Anyways, I wore this outfit last monday for uni and a couple meetings in an attempt to look somewhat fashionable and smart but also comfy enough for school. It was a little lazy on my part though, see roll necks are quickly becoming a sort of uniform for me, especially with my duster or a waistcoat thrown over the top. And this duster! I'm. so. in. love. I don't know why i haven't shown you it before! I'm really beginning to wish I'd invested in a wool one too but I just can't face coat shopping again, at least not this year. Generally the only downside to the outfit was trying to use an industrial sewing machine wearing those boots, not my brightest idea but I doubt it'll stop me from doing it again, I'm pretty dedicated to the heels ;)

Now, I wanna hear how you are! Whats your cute but comfy monday morning look?

Fortnightly Round-Up #3

Pictures from of tumblr.

This fortnight was a little more chilled for me, I properly started my uni projects and met some amazingly inspiring people because of it. I updated my little 'about me' section and made the pretty huge decision to trek round Mont Blanc next September, but more on that soon! I've had some lovely conversations and exchanged a load of smiles this fortnight which makes the dull days so much brighter. 
Oh, and I got tickets to see my faves in concert again, roll on next april! 

1. I found this post on 'A Girl, obsessed' really helpful when I felt a little overwhelmed with loads of new school stuff last week.

2. I'm sure you all know how much I love Buzzfeed, well this week they shared this amazing video filled with awkwardness and uncomfortable embraces. Truely beautiful.

3. All my TV shows are back for fall (queue the late night catsh up sessions) and i'm also loving River that's just started on BBC1 and House of DVF on E!, TV will be the reason I fail school, for sure.

4. Robowecop's post on anxiety (here) is really strong, we need to talk about mental health more, especially what anxiety really means.

5. And finally, I've set up my fundraising page for my trek next September, if you wanna learn more check it out here!

I haven't really been online or reading or anything much other than school this fortnight so I'll leave you with this!

EscapeShoes Wishlist - 15.10.15

1/2/3/4/5 - EscapeShoes

It's been a pretty busy couple of weeks for me and I'm definitely in need of a little tlc, where better to start than shopping, right? I have uni everyday and I've realised my 5-inch platform boots aren't really cutting it (cue ours of aching feet) so I'm on the hunt for some super cute and comfy boots; after all my feet deserve a little tlc too. Luckily EscapeShoes have got me covered on all fronts with a great selection and yeah, okay, some of these are still heeled but what's a girl to do? I'm sure my feet will survive. 

I'll leave you with this little wishlist, as I'm still super busy, but be sure to let me know which ones are your faves; I love the tie-up details on number 5. However number 1 are probably my favourites, they're giving me biker chick vibes with that textured panel and I'm already imagining them with skinny jeans and my trusty leather, plus the heel size is a little more uni appropriate. 

What do you wear to keep your feet comfy on long days?

Finding The Perfect Coat - 12.10.15

Coat - H&M

I feel like autumn is pretty much officially upon us now, in England anyway, the days are chillier, the nights roll in earlier and I've been searching for the perfect coat for what feels like ages. You know that moment of dread when you realise you have to buy a new coat? Well that moment lasted weeks for me, pretty sure I've tried on a hundred and one coats, but, finally I found the one. I'm pretty picky so I knew I wanted a coat with a tie-up belt with a big old collar in a length that wouldn't make my legs look super short, even though long coats are so in right now. Honestly I never thought I'd find it in a high street store or for the insanely good price it is but here we are and my bank balance still looking pretty healthy.  I think my favourite thing, though, is how mush more expensive it looks compared to what it actually costs. I don't mind people thinking it Jaeger when in reality it's H&M! 

Have you found your perfect coat yet or are you still on the hunt? 
Some of my favourite picks are below, I must say H&M are so on point this season, I'm dying to get my mitts on number three!

Hey, Everybody! - 8.10.15

Top - Primark
Jeans - Charity Shopping
Clutch Bag - ASOS

Back to darker tones and muted colours, I always feel my best draped in greys and blacks which probably explains why autumn/winter is my favourite season; I just don't understand yellow coats. 

I'm so excited that I just had to share this top with you as soon as I got it home. I've seen tops like this around for a while now and they're either ridiculously expensive or from pretty untrustworthy sites. So when I spotted this one in primark I was pretty excited, I even convinced my mum to buy one, although it didn't take much persuasion. Its thin and light, it sits just right and it looks so chic with a handful of silver necklaces.

On another note, this clutch bag from ASOS is my new favourite for nights out and dinner with friends. Actually, to be fair, I didn't have a favourite before this one because I'm so terrible with bags. I only have a few and they're totally un-coordinated when it comes to outfits; as long as it's black right? 

Hope you guys are having a great week, I'm off to a lecture now and then tomorrow is a super exciting day to be a 5sos fan with the new single, Hey everybody, coming out and them being on chatty man. I was meant to be going out but I'm so not missing this, I'm buzzing! ;)

Fortnightly Round-Up #2 - 4.10.15

Pictures from Instagram

This week has been pretty mad for me, I started university on Monday and done all the things freshers do (well sort of) and yesterday I got to see my little cousins that I haven't seen in ages. All in all it's been a busy but exciting week and I'm bringing it to a close with a pampering sesh and night out tonight (clubbing on a sunday? Yeah, I must be mad)

Internets

1. This much need post on smart ways to deal with toxic people. I've been trying to avoid nasty situations.

2. Brushing up on my blogging knowledge and learning how not to get sued, thank you CocoChic!

3. Whatever this is.

4. 22 hot chocolates that I totally need to make (or at least lust over and wish i had the time to try)

5. Theo James for Hugo Boss? Yes please.

6. And finally reading this, sometimes we need to talk about losing people, relationships breaking down and people walking away. But sometimes we just need to hear other people say it.
