WinterTime Lookbook Collab: How I Style Baggy Jumpers and Leather Jackets

Hello my much love people of the Internet, how are you all? This weeks post has taken so mcuh time to make as it's in collaboration with my beautiful chummy, Eleise Devine. Eleise and I have been best friends for 4 years now (how I've put up with her I don't know:) and as she's just started her own Youtube Channel, I thought we could collab together! Her channel is mainly beauty and lifestyle based, with some Q&A's thrown in there, and seeing as at 7pm tonight our Lookbook will be going up on her channel, if you want to see more videos of  us walking around in outfits awkwardly not knowing what to do then feel free to head over there after<3

I'm only messing, this was so much fun to make buttt the photos I have lined up for you guys may be a little different as we had to film and take pictures on two different days at different times, and as we're going into winter time, the evenings do unfortunatley get darker quickly. Whoops. 

Aside from that, sorry it's taken so long for this blog post to go up but hey ho, these things happen I suppose...

 

1.Cozy Daze 

You know those days where you don't want to get out of bed yet you have to go out? This outfit is perfect for days like these as a big cosy jumper, trainers, jeggings and a messy bun make THE most comftorble outfit ever, besides, wearing big fluffy jumpers is basically the same as walking around in a duvet. What wouldn't you love about that??

Jumper: Local charity shop (I do love me some bargains) 1 

Jeggings: Tesco (swear these are the most comftorble jeans ever, highly reccommend) £1

Trainers: Converse All Stars in White Leather


2. Girls Day Out 

To make this outfit a little different, I simply paired a leather jacket with some suede heel boots, black high-waisted jeans and a modern burgundy coloured crop top. I love wearing this, because even though it's not super smart, you can get away with wearing it out at night or even for a day out with your friends shopping....

Leather Jacket: Zara €40

Crop-top: New Look £8

Jeans: Primark Super Skinny High Waisted Jeans £10

Boots: H&M Black Suede Heels £30 (these are the most comforble boots you ever will see, I wore them around London for a day and a half without my feet aching, H&M...I love you). 

 


3. Party Proof

Why bother with dresses when there's options like this one available? Since discovering this neat trick I have hardly worn a dress to a party. Ever. 
And that's saying something because I loveee my dresses. 
I have made this by matching a pair of white ripped jeans (you don't have to go out and buy these already ripped, just rip some cheap white jeans that youv'e found lying around the house, there's no difference!) with a black and gold sparkly top which kind of screams Christmas Time. Obviously, if you want to wear heels then feel free by an means, but I'd rather wear trainers to a party than heels anyday, at least they'll be no falling over...

Top: Primark £8 (again with the bargains..)
Jeans: Miss Selfridge White Ripped Jeans £25
Shoes: Black Platforme Trainers from my local shoe shop €15  





I hope you all enjoyed seeing yet another Lookbook, make sure you check Eleises Channel out, it would mean alot! 
Also, I want to say a massive thankyou to those of you that have stuck with me and my little blog. I know I haven't been consistent with uploading but a planner is the first thing on my Christmas List this year to help me get more organised so hopefully after New Year there will be a solid routine for posting!
See you all next week!

My Cosy Autumn Daily Routine & Top 5 Fave Bloggers

"I dare you to let me be your, your One And Only. Promise I'm worthy to hold in your arms, so come on and give me a chance. To prove I am the one who can walk that mile, until the end starts".....defo not belting out Adele songs at the top of my lungs:)

Helloo everybody! Since I didn't post last week, I thought I would make it up to you guys and give you a 2 in 1 today! Lately, I've been watching and loving ALOT of "My Daily Autumn Routines", so I thought I would recreate that today seeing as 1. I love Autumn, 2. It gives me an excuse to wear my massively oversized jumper and 3. Cadburys Hot Chocolate is calling me...

I will try and make this as Autumnal as possible, but I am sad to say it isn't raining, drizzly or stormy, and there is no raindrop sliding down my window to make me feel like I'm in a music video, in fact, it's the very opposite. The sun is shining through my bedroom window but I am in a very good mood all the same as I found the stash of chocolate my mum was hiding in the kitchen, I've re-organised my room and all my homework is done for the rest of the weekend *squeels*.

So, to start off, I have paired my oversized cream Argon jumper with some black high waisted leggings and converse-plain, simple, yet oh so comfy. 

Then I will usually whip out my Spotify and listen to all my fave songs while I'm getting ready, because let's face it, if your mascara goes wrong (this has happened many a time) or your hair gets stuck in your Tangle Teezer (yep, also happened), there is nothing better than singing out the words to your fave songs into your hairbrush whilst dancing around your room (you guessed it..). Some of my favourite songs lately (they aren't neccesarily Autumnal but they're amazing all the same) have been: One And Only By Adele, Budapest by George Ezra and A-Punk by Vampire Weekend. 

Then, after taking care of my skin and prepping it for the day ahead, I will throw on some dark lippie before going to make some lunch and a hot chocolate (gotta be Cadburys)...










 

 

My Top 5 Fave Bloggers

I thought this would be an interesting post to do, as I like photography and travelling equally as much as I like beauty and fashion, so I guess you could say I'm an allrounder! Therefore, I tend to read some blogs that other people in their teens wouldn't neccesarily read, for example, Zoella seems to be a very popular blog (due to her success on Youtube), but so many people read her content, and even though it's really good quality and she's adored by  so many fans, I'm here to show you guys something a little different...

1. Thirteen Thoughts

This has to be one of my favourite all time blogs. I am a consistent reader of her blogs and adore them all. It is mainly beauty and lifestyle, but her quality in writing really is good and flows off of the page, almost as if she's talking to you herself. There is something on there for everyone, beauty, lifestyle tips and the oh so loved "How To's"..you name it, she's got it. 

2. Hello October

Hello October, featuring a little someone called Suzie, is a fashion blog that takes you through the world of fashion, from High Street to Designer Labels. This girl can pull just about any outift off, whilst taking you along with her to share her experiences and oppertunites one would only dream of...

3. Gabriella Loves

This is essentially a beauty blog written by a makeup enthusiast and bookworm (like me) so as soon as I started reading this, I automatically fell in love. Gabriella reviews makeup, from Highend to Drugstore Dupes, and does the occasional book review that always leads me adding another book onto The Wishlist. I would highly recommend this blog if your a young adult or teen, I find it's easy to read as there's not a load of information, yet you feel like you've learnt something at the end of her reviews! Big thumbs up for Gabs!


4. Lydia Elise Millen

I originally came across Lydia through her Instagram (@lydiaemillen) and after a quick scroll through her feed, I realised I needed this blogger in my life. No doubt about it. Lydia posts on a weekly basis all about Beauty, Fashion, Fitness, Travelling..there's no stopping this girl. She's done it all! Her posts and Youtube channel are adictive and aswell as being a role model for a great number of her viewers, she does everything with a stride in her step, not bad eh? Having a bad day or just feeling under the weather?  Check out this blog, it's sure not to dissapoint! P.S Can I mention how cute her cat is? 

5. Tuula

My final fave is completely deddicated to travelling...meet Jessica Stein. Her posts aren't jampacked with information, but her pictures...wow. After reading her blog for a couple of months, I now feel like if I don't travel the world, I would be missing out on so many things I never even knew existed. Aswell as being incredibly skilled in photography, Jessica has impicable taste in clothes, pulling off everything and anything from floaty dresses to trainers. 

I hope you've found this weeks post useful? Let me know in the commments below<3

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Even though this weeks post is rather late, I thought i would still post because I felt like I just had to share with you some pictures I took from the Halloween Party I attended the other night! I dressed up as Dead Alice in Wonderland and covered my face in as much fake blood as possible until I thought I looked scary enough, before I made my way to the party where there was decorations and food galor. From spewing pumpkins, glass-jarred eyeballs and witches fingers to deadly potions (mine was non-alcaholic as always:), the place was kitted out with ghastly ghosts and pumpkins from head to foot. 

So, whilst I was glancing at all the food glorious food (I bet all of you are now singing that to yourselves now:), the clogs in my head started clinking and I decided to steal some inspiration....

 The Nacho-Spewing Pumpkin

 

 Spider Cider & Bats Beer

 Blood Oozing Cupcakes

 Not So Sweet Marshamallows

 Rotten To The Core Apples

 Intoxicating Injections
 

How tasty looking are they?! I hope you have found some of these ideas useful for next year, I can assure you that these treats will go down a storm at any party! I hope you all had a nice half term holiday<3

I love youuuu
