A New Season Wishlist

Autumn is finally here and with the crisp, chilly mornings in full swing, I have been lusting after a few new coats and cosy jumpers. Today I am enabling you to get your haul on by showing you my top pieces for the new season. 

Surprisingly this year I feel like there are dreamy coats everywhere and although I've already recently bought one, this Jack Wills Deramore Swing Coat looks like the perfect investment piece. I think it would look great wrapped around a lacy dress and a pair of boots as the navy colour isn't something I've currently got in my wardrobe. For a lighter option, the ASOS Denim Cropped Borj Jacket is in the sale and I have been adding and removing it from my basket for a couple of days now. It looks like it would be a perfect throw on jacket for the chilly days, however this Pimkie Suedette Biker Jacket is also calling my name. 

As for jumpers, I have been inundated with options and I have had to tear myself away from many. Blush pink, burgundy and muted colours are my go-to this season and this ASOS Chunky Jumper is the perfect pick. After the success of my Boucle burgundy jumper, I thought that it was about time I picked up the grey option for my wardrobe as I have worn it to death. 

I have already been lusting after some festive outfits and this Glamorous Shirt Dress couldn't be more Christmas-esque if it tried. Although the rose gold is dreamy, this ASOS Tea Dress looks like it would be perfect for everyday wear with tights, but can be dressed up for a night out too. 

I've got a shortage of tops this year and I want to make sure I have a few stripe favourites and a couple of staples to see me through the colder months. This Weekday Stripe T-Shirt is a great spin on the classic due to it's varying colours and this Boohoo Satin Cold Shoulder Top is divine and who could resist a rose gold top? 

Christmas is fast approaching and although I'm trying to restrain myself from watching all the festive films, I have been eyeing up some new toasty PJ's. This Gingerbread Tee and Short Set look very cute and I think I might need these Christmas Footlet Socks to make sure that my feet are kept warm too.

I'm not usually one for accessories, but once something catches my eye I tend to go back to it time and time again. This Simon Carter Stag Lapel Pin is irresistible, but this Design B offering is a great budget alternative as I wouldn't necessarily know where to put it or how to use it. 

Shoes are something I tend to neglect all year around and during the Autumn and Winter months I always struggle to find a pair that I love. This ASOS Doodle option looks perfect for everyday wear due to the slip on style and the muted colour. For a more Autumn suited pair, these ASOS Erin Boots looks like they would be super comfortable and would suit an all black outfit perfectly. 

What are you lusting after this season?

4 Things To Do This Halloween

As a massive homebody, when it comes to Halloween I usually end up either having a marathon at the cinema watching scary films or I stay at home with the candles lit, pumpkins everywhere and have a good ol' pamper. Today I am sharing with you some ideas of things to do this Halloween. 

Ghost Walk | Although most ghost walks sell out pretty quickly around Halloween, there may be a few left for you to take part in. I'm sure the atmosphere is scary and is perfect for the 31st. If you can't get on one, why not grab a friend or two and go around your local town having a look at people's costumes and the pumpkins in people's front windows. Another idea would be the look at local tourist attractions; for me Hangman's Hill is an infamous place we go to experience a car rolling backwards up a hill.  

Pick Your Own | Okay, so you probably won't have time to go to a pick your own on the day, but if like myself you like to carve your pumpkin a few days before then this is the perfect activity. I have already got a few pumpkin patch visits scheduled in my diary and I'm sure I will pick up one or two. 

At Home Cinema | For the past couple of years I've gone to the cinema to watch two spooky films back to back and although it's super fun, it can be a little expensive. Making yourself an at home cinema with candy corn, fiendish fancies and your favourite horror movie or TV programme to binge watch. I certainly recommend The Walking Dead, the Paranormal Activities or Zombieland if you fancy something a little bit lighter to watch. 

Pamper | With Lush coming out with their own Halloween range it can be hard to resist delving into a pile of dreamy bubbles. I recommend crumbling Sparkly Pumpkin into the bath, lighting a few candles and losing yourself in a book whilst you bathe. After the bath, I like to paint my nails with Essie Sole Mate, a vampy pick that looks great paired with an all black outfit for the big night - Perfect for those who don't like dressing up!
