Hello everyone!
This week as just flown by hasn't it, you guys all keeping well? Some people have been tagging me in some of their outfits on Instagram which is super lovely I absolutely adore seeing what you guys are styling together, so keep em coming ladies!
I'm finally used to this chilly weather, mostly due to the fact I keep buying jackets, my mother is none to impressed. Oh wells. I'm addicted to buying coats as in this weather no one sees your outfit so you need to make it look good with a massive bright coat. Least thats how I try to justify it. Besides if your destined to be with a new bad boy coat who am I to say no... I really love the pink 60s style ones that are bobbing about but I'm terrifed I will look too Elle Woods with my blonde hair. I seen a red head in one yesterday and she looked GORGE!
Now that finally I am settled at uni, even turning up with pens and pencils now, cute little pencil case was purchased. I just luuuuurve stationary especially when you get them all in mini form. Supa cute. Okay I'm rambling I mean to say now that I'm settled I should be able to bang out regular posts for you guys :). I hate being such a lazy blogger. Oh, and sorry about the photos being so unclear, I intend on getting a new camera very soon!

I have a new style crush on super babe blogger, Isabella Thordsen, her site is here. Please check it out plus her instagram is amazing its isabellath she has 100000000000000 of followers plus her style is out of this world cool. I'm trying to copy her hair atm, so laid back and low maintence looking, but mines is no where near a hot as hers. I'm sounding like a creep now aren't I haha.
So tartan is so bloody everywhere at the moment and being Scottish I couldn't exactly ignore it so this is my pledge to all my Scottish followers! However I couldnt just leave it at tartan I am and always will be a faux fur lover and this little collar piece is ah.maze.in.
I shall be posting at the very least once a week on the tuesday but I will try my ultimate hardest to start posting twice! Especially as I love wintery weather. HALLOWEEN IS SUPER SOON TOO! Cannot wait to see everyones outfits. Right back to the daily grind. Love yous and leave yas.
See you all soon.

Hello everyone!
How are you guys all doing this week? Hopefully its been a good one, I don't know if its just me but how come winter has just suddenly appeared? We have had the best summer this year and now my body is used to glorious warmth, I. AM. NOT. PREPARED. FOR. THIS. Normally its cold all year round in Scotland reaching a high of maybe 18 degrees so winter never feels this severe. Oh my days this chill that has crept in has hit me hard. Before I go anywhere I make sure I have at least 4 layers on, not including scarves and hats that are obviously a necessity. Its only October but I'm dressing like its January and we live in Alaska. However some individuals feel the need to wear t-shirts and bare legs still, even seen someone hold on to the idea of sunglasses today. Are they fearless? Optimistic or maybe just a little crazy...?
This weather change has brought about a mass wardrobe change so goodbye neon you were good to me while you lasted. So now I'm thinking I need new stuff so look out for some new pieces that I've been bad with buying lately. Hehe. The main focus with this outfit today was leather and fur. Leather as no wind or cold is getting through that and fur because well....its so fluffy! This leather top is insane value for money it looks so chic and simple yet it was so cheap only £12 from Primark and it could easily pass for something out of Cos. I literally cannot wait to dress it up with skinny leather trousers or a pencil skirt and a massive statement necklace, but since its daytime I went for the trusty leather skirt.
Hat: Primark £12
Jacket: H&M £17.99
Skirt: Miss Selfridge £34.99
Shoes: Office £55
Bag: H&M £15
Top: Primark £12
Ring: Accessorise £8
The hat, or birds nest, was from Primark last year and has kept so well. It is slightly big for my pea head but its so warm I dont even care. I put a wee broach on it today just to give it a girlier feel. Now this fur jacket I love, I cant quite decide if its grey or lilac faux fur but it lterally goes with so much surprisingly which is great as I never have time to plan my outfits anymore.
Halloween is soooooooo soon and I have never been so disorganised, I have finally sent away for a new ID I just hope it comes in time. I've been procrastinating by watching so much halloween youtube tutorials and some of them are amazing but I've still no clue as to what to be yet. The best I've got so far is a teletubbie...Clearly I need more help. So give me some ideas buddies and let me know what you guys are going as.
See you soon.

I Think I Need Colour In My Life

Hello everyone!
Hope you guys are doing gooooood? My blogs had a wee bit of a makeover thanks to a good buddy of mines, hes really good at all this technical stuff while I repel it. So THANKS BRO! My week has had its ups and downs the worst part being my purse and passport got stolen after a night out gutted is an understatement it also means I can't go out on halloween as its my only ID. They've ruined my life! I looooooove halloween.
I'm really struggling to get into uni this year which is pretty disapointing as I love my course, I think its the whole financial merchandising module thats putting me off. Numbers? Fashion? No. Just no. But either way I need to get my ass into gear and I have promised myself I need to be top student from now on....hopefully.
So while I was working at LFW, I picked up this white oversized cocoon coat. Its always so much more cold in London than I ever expect it to be. Plus I had seen so much amazing women in these manish coats that I needed one straight away. I am obsessed with coats this year I picked up another just yesterday as I couldn't resist. I have a problem. I want them all from cape, biker, duffle, boucle, leather, oversized even the massive lapel ones. Help.
It was freezng yesterday even though the sun is out so sorry for the lack of good pictures! Plus my face just wasn't having any of it.

Jumper: Primark £10

Right away to catch up on all the uni work I've missed.
See you all soon,

Mourning My Freedom

Hello everyone!
 Hope this week for you all has been fab and you are all recovering well from freshers flu? Basically without a doubt I am devastated to be returning back to university. The past 3 months I have been freeeeeeeee to do whatever I want plus work more hours and chase the paper! So now I am back to deadlines, reports, late nights and early mornings with a part time wage. Boke.
Moving on before I sink into depression, from LFW I learned that black is still as cool as it ever was. If not more cool. So with a new love for the colour and my mourning of freedom this is what I've been wearing. Plus everyone tends to think you are a bit more of the 'Goth' type and randoms are less likely to ask bizzare questions. Aberdeen can be a lovely place 6% of the time the rest its weirdos coming up to you at bus stops asking if you would like to help feed their collection of parrots, yes I was once asked this. Naturally I said yes of course. Back on topic, black you can't really go wrong with, it always makes you look that slight bit more cool and if its good enough for Kanye and Kim its good enough for me.
 Hat: H&M £8.99
Top: Topshop £18
Skirt: Zara £34.99
Jumper: Primark £10
Belt: River Island £14.99
Jacket: River Island £55
Bag: Ebay £11
Shoes: Newlook £22
Sunglasses: Next £16
 This season it seems to be more texture focused rather than colours, which I am really digging as you can tell with my purchase of the fluffy jumper. Step into a shop and at least 30% of the garments will be fluffy Primark for example, wow overkill. I have also noticed a lot of PVC and leather which I love. It means you can go out in public looking like a complete freak which is amazing. However if you want just a taste of it head over to Zara their winter coats this season are. To. Die. For. All mixed with black lace, leather, PVC even seen a wee fur number.
Quick cringe confession the hat here is from the kids bit in H&M because I have a pea head but it is a dead ringer for the one on ASOS. So yes. I have a 6 year olds head. Great.
 Hope this week will be good to you guys!
See you soon
