She's A Certified Mind-Blower





























All - Topshop

I'm sure it's pretty common for us girls to pull an outfit out and realise a little later that it's entirely Topshop! Woops. I got these leggings/trousers earlier this week and they're so comfy. Personally I'd wear them casually like this or with heels and a nice top to dress them up a bit, I think they're really versatile! The jumper is one I've had for a couple of years and I'm sure you can find a similar one pretty much anywhere - it's just a really loose fitting dark grey that is great for layering.  

I've never been the sort of person to experiment with lip colours much. Pretty much every lipstick or equivalent that I own is a nudey/pinky peach colour. On Saturday night I went to see Bastille with my cousin and she bought with her a dark red lip glass from Mac which she let me try a bit of. Surprisingly I really liked it and even wore it out afterwards, so recently I've been trying to experiment more. This colour I'm wearing now is a Topshop lip bullet in 'Heartbeat'. I think I'm warming to it!

Today I've just been keeping warm at home and working on some writing for University. It's sooo cold. Not that I'm complaining, I'm a winter lover!

Let Me Be Your Coffee Pot




Top - Zara
Everything Else - Topshop

I have been such a bad blogger recently *slaps wrists*. I have been pretty ill and also went up to Scotland for a wedding. You can see photos of the things I get up to whilst I'm not blogging on my instagram page.

Today I just had to pop into town and run a few errands, now I'm back it's time to sort out my nightmare of a bedroom, listen to AM for the millionth time and organise University! It was so cold outside though, I'm just ready to cuddle up in bed with a hot chocolate, or preferably a chocolate & orange mocha latte from Costa, which I fell in love with recently. So yummy. As you can probably tell from the photos, I was having incredible trouble with lighting! There are no good rooms in this house and I didn't fancy standing in the rain haha!

I bought this faux fur gilet in Topshop in Brent Cross earlier this week. It's sooo soft, I love it. I'm a little bit mad for faux fur so it was an obvious love-at-first-sight item for me! Paired with this big boxy top from Zara and my trusty Alexa boots. 

What are you loving this Autumn?
