I love Autumn

OK I know I'm late hopping on this bandwagon now that it's nearly officially Winter, but thought I'd do this cute tag before we wave Goodbye to Autumn for another year! I tag all of you, so let me know if you do it :)

1. Its Autumn, what are you most looking forward to in this season? 
I really look forward to Halloween, I'm obsessed with all scary movies, and I LOVE dressing up. It's also my Birthday the week after Halloween, so I always look forward to that too. The Lead up to Christmas is something I always look forward to as well :)  

2. What Autumn item in your closet are you most excited to pull out?
Chunky Knits! I live in Chunky knits,  They're so easy to throw on over leggings and boots! 

3. Since Halloween is the first holiday to celebrate, we all get treated with a horror film marathon all month long...What is your favourite scary film to watch?
Oh Lordy, Choose just one?!A toss up between"From Hell" and"Sleepy Hollow"...with "Sleepy Hollow" probably in the lead...

4. What is your favourite Autumn treat?
Butlers Cookie Hot Chocolate! Hot chocolate with crushed Oreo Cookies in it, what's not to love?

5. Now that summer is finally (way) over, What will you miss about it?
The bright colourful clothes!, I love me black, but I love wearing bright floral prints and wearing no tights!

6. What make-up/beauty products do you love for Autumn?
A good moisturiser (E45 cream is my favourite), Carmex lip balm. I'm also loving the deep burgundy lips, that everyone's rocking this year. Also Suncream, it's just an important in Autumn than it is in Summer!

7. What have you recently bought in preparation for the up and coming season?
New Knitwear, what can I say...I'm obsessed. I bought loads of jumpers in H&M and Topshop. River Island also have 
some gorgeous knits!

8. Have you ever been trick'or'treating?
Bit too old, I'm afraid! Wish I could!

9. Name the first 5 things that come to your head when you think of Autumn. 
- Onesies
-Hot Chocolate
-Dark Evenings

10. What is your favourite season and why?
Winter! I love Christmas, I love cuddling up on the couch watching Rom-coms and chilling out with the people I love <3 *N'awwwh*

Hair Care Routine Part:2

{Haha, couldn't resist!}
I get asked a lot about my hair, I did a recent post here about what products I use. I thought I'd let ya'll know how I get my hair so big! It's not secret that I love me, a big hair do. I just don't feel good with flat hair, and haven't had flat hair in about 7 years! As of late I've been really making the effort to take better care of my hair, as I know all this backcombing can't be good for it ;)
"Shine Definition Spray":Tresemme Backcombing brush:Salon Supply store. "Backcomb Dust":Tresemme

I've recently discovered the new Tresemme "Texture Style" range in boots, and must say it's made getting big hair extremely easy. I use the Definition Spray on a day to day basis. It gives your hair texture making it easy to backcomb. On a day to day basis, I usually do the following:
  • Split my hair into a side parting. 
  • Brush hair through, making sure I've no knots.
  • Spray the "Shine Definition" Spray into my roots, and rub it in.
  • Taking the backcombing brush, I take each section of my hair and backcomb it from underneath,getting in as close to the root as I can get. 
  • My hair tends to look crazy at this point, so I just lightly brush over it with the backcombing brush, and then clip up a small part of the larger side of hair.
  • I pin back the section the falls in my face with a clip which adds more volume at the top.
  • If I'm heading on a night out, I will also use the "Back Combing Dust" as it gives me super volume, and my hair stays extremely big all night! 

It's really not that hard, I've just used trial and error, to find out the best style for me! Hope this little tutorial is informative for some of you :)

Sparkly Sutds

Jumper:Coco Boutique,Sunglasses:Primark,Necklace:New Look,Bag:Louis Vuitton

Hey Lovelies,
Phew, finally an OOTD! I've been so busy, I've hardly had a chance to breathe let alone get me dad to take a picture! I'm back to work and back to reality, after a whirlwind weekend ;)
My parent's kindly got me this lovely  jumper for my Birthday. It's nice a baggy, and extremely comfy, perfect for day's like today when it wasn't bitterly cold, and the sun popped up to say hello! It's the perfect knit jumper, and its not black (yay!) I wore it with my studded velvet Vectra's from Topshop and my H&M leggings.It's an easy outfit to wear when you're on the run, and legging it out the door. I love the colour as you're not only limited to wearing it in Winter. The studs and gems are a really nice touch, and give this comfy knit a bit of glamour!

Topshop wish list

Topshop wish list
Hey Guys!
Sorry for the lack of updates this week. I've been mad busy as always, so apologies! I will have a few outfit's of the day for you this week :) I was in Birmingham this weekend for a photoshoot for an upcoming magazine. It was a great experience and I had so much fun! The issue will be out at the start of the New Year- so exiting times! I've more exciting news about the magazine, but I can't say too much at this point :) I'll write up a post soon with a few previews of the shoot  when I get hold of the pics. Anyway I've been really loving Topshop at the moment, and am really getting in the Christmas spirit. I'm going to get the Mistletoe jumper and red velvet skirt for Christmas Eve, it's just so Christmassy! You all know how much I love Topshop, and I always try on everything I like, sometimes the sizing is small and doesn't fit, sometimes it's big and does. I've loads of size 12's,14's and 16's from Topshop! So never limit yourselves to any shops! 

Hope you all have a lovely evening I'm off to relax in me friends house and watch the XFactor :)

Oh and the Winner of my Mac Giveaway is *Drum Roll Please* Nicola Sutton.
 Congratulations Nicola, please drop me an email at (You have one week to contact me, before I pick another winner)

Birthday Celebrations (again!)

I promise you this is my last Birthday post. I was truly spoilt this year,and want to thank everyone who made it so very special!  I had a great night last night, perfect end to an amazing Birthday weekend! All I can hope is to top it next year ;) I saw this dress back in June and I had to snap it up. My friend actually works in Topshop, and text me to let me know it was on sale, and there was one left in a size 16! Needless to say, I went in before work the next day, and it was there with my name one it! It's just absolutely stunning, the colour, the shape and the style. It's got a low dip back, and has cap sleeves. It's a gorgeous Skater dress and is just perfect for some birthday Celebrations! As it's November and bloody freezing I looked long and hard for a blazer to go with it. I had given up and was going to pair it with black, when I ran into town the day off, and saw this Blazer in Dunnes, one size 16 left. I think this whole outfit was fate, and I'm delighted. Over all I had a wonderful Birthday, and I'm a bit gutted it's over!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
