Jeepers Creepers, where d'ya get those sneakers!

On an impulse, I went shopping after lectures. On the same impulse, I bought myself these amazing shoes. I can't stop looking at them. As most of you will know, I freakin' LOVE galaxy print and have been searching for an inexpensive accessory to channel the Christopher Kane look. Well, it was worth the wait. So I'm guessing you will want to know where they are from. Newlook. You were thinking Topshop right? They cost £9.99 but with my student discount cost me only £8.99. Cannot wait to show you what I wear them with! The pictures above were taken in my Uni room with my camera, hence they boring backdrop. I thought the pictures were still pretty cool though? I hope you agree.

On a side note: I have been awful with blogging since I have been at Uni. For this I am truly sorry. I love my blog, my readers and your blogs. I just need to sort out my time management, but I will get there.

Life's a pumpkin!

Last weekend my parents and brother came up to Cheltenham to visit me at Uni. It was such a great weekend. For starters I loved my outfit and made sure I had a photo taken of it. The gilet is new, I bought it a month or two back. The denim dress featured in a lot of my summer outfit posts but is pretty versatile. I thought the colours (ox-blood and navy) and materials (denim) were strangely on trend for me. I also made the effort to straighten my hair and apply some make up. The gloves were bought on Sunday from Matalan, I've just been so cold here, I decided a scarf would cut it no longer. Back to my family, it was so nice getting to see them again. We explored the local area, visited Gloucester Cathedral, had some delicious meals out and visited the cutest farm shop. It was also great having the chance to take some photos again. I took a lot more but didn't want to overload you all!

I know I have been somewhat 'off the scene' over the last month but starting University has been a real work overload. I spend my time in lectures, writing for my lectures, reading for my lectures, sleeping and cooking. When I do have time to write, I rarely have any pictures to share with you all - how sad is that! Anyway, I have decided I will start photographing my outfits more often, try some make up tutorials and share any new purchases on here. Just give me a while to settle in and find a new routine.

Anyway, enough about me! I hope you are all well :) what have you been up to?

P.S I am heading up to London on Saturday to visit a beautiful Fashion and Art museum called the V&A for a friends 20th. Cannot wait to share the photos with you all!

It's Autumn so grab your scarf!

Autumn is finally here guys! I mean, I guess it started a few weeks ago but only now is it really starting to get that chill in the air. I have already bought my winter coat as well. It is very chic. A black collared swing coat (a post to follow soon!) But my favourite accessory of every season, but particularly Autumn, are scarves. There are so many shapes, textures and colours to chose from. They are everywhere and you can range from £1-100! My favourite place to buy scarves from is Accessorize they are reasonably expensive but always create a statement and feel crazily luxurious.  I wanted to show you my three favourites that I will be living out of for the coming months - you may recognise these pictures because they have been featured in previous posts.

The pashmina
The fair-isle knit
The chunky snood

What is your favourite Autumn/ Winter accessory? 
Which is your favourite type of scarf? The snood, the knit or the pashmina?

Let me know your thoughts! Thank you for reading,

University life and fashion.

Honestly, I have been busy compared to life before University. I still have a few spare hours in each of my days but I keep finding stuff to do like writing for my course and watching Downton Abbey! I thought I would share a few pics with you and make a promise to continue posting. I love this blog and have worked so hard for the last two years, I don't want to give up on it now!

So yes, I only have three pictures to share!

My room #1

My room #2

Me dressed as a rubbish Nancy Drew...I did have a notebook and a pen:)

Hold tight, I will be posting my the end of the week! This is to let you know that I have abandoned Hailes Hearts Fashion. 

Happy Autumn!
