FLUFF FLUFF FLUFF// INTU MERRY HILL



FLORAL PUFFER JACKET: *WHOLESALE7
VELVET OFF SHOULDER TOP: *RIVER ISLAND
FLUFFY SKIRT: *PRIMARK
PINK FLOWER SOCKS: *PRIMARK
HOLOGRAPHIC SHOES: *PRIMARK

I bought this outfit a few weeks ago when I went to Intu Merry Hill Autumn Winter Fashion Weekend. I've been visiting Merry Hill for years and its essentially a giant shopping center in the West Midlands. Whenever I visit theres always something fancy and new which has been added and it has pretty much every shop anyone would ever want to go to like Topshop, River Island, Primark ect and an insanely huge food court which makes the worlds best noodles and Chinese chilli chicken (oh my god now I want noodles and chilli chicken)!! During the event they did 20% off at various stores but I headed straight to primark with my gift card because I had already been there a few days before and decided on everything I wanted to buy, mostly socks, I like socks!!! And also lots of fluffy things. Unfortunately I couldn't buy everything, I saw two really cute jumpers in Miss Selfridge which I couldn't afford and there were lots of things in primark which I tried on, all of which were super fluffy!

Here are some photos from my fab day out, thanks Intu Merry Hill!!!

BITE ME



BITE ME JUMPER: *MISSGUIDED
GRID SKIRT: *WHOLESALE7
PENTAGRAM CHOKER: *MISSGUIDED
THIGH HIGH PLATFORM BOOTS: *BOOHOO
SHORT BLACK AND RED WIG: ABHAIR.COM
LIPGLOSS: MAC LIPGLASS IN REBEL

I just received a super cute parcel from Missguided for Halloween and so I decided to play dress up and continue to spread the Halloween joy!! I've had some wigs from ABHAIR.COM for ages and I've been waiting for the perfect opportunity to wear one, I think they suit this outfit really well!! .. Whilst also reminding me never ever to dye my hair black or cut it short! Also how cool are these boots? I've had them for ages and recently I was thinking of selling them as they're so difficult to walk in *falls over* and they're a bit provocative but maybe I'll hold onto them for a while as thigh highs are super groovy rn!!

I AM SECRETLY A RAINBOW



SEE THROUGH RAIN COAT: *GLAMOROUS
PASTEL VINTAGE JUMPER: WEARECOW
ACID WASH JEANS: *PRETTY LITTLE THING
BLUE HOLOGRAPHIC JELLY BELT: FROM A MARKET
LOVE HEART SOCKS: *PRIMARK
HOLOGRAPHIC SHOES: *PRIMARK
cute glitter hearts

I do enjoy playing around with my photos in photoshop and making them extra rainbow-y when they're looking a bit bland. I wore this outfit for a walk the other day when it looked like it was particularly gloomy outside. I find these Primark holographic shoes are coming in very handy as they're super comfy and easy to walk in compared to the majority of my other shoes (yay platforms), and also because they're holographic they still look really cool. I struggle to find super cool flat shoes, and I'd like to have more because as much as I love platforms, theres only so many times you can trip over your own feet or fall over on those weird bobbly bits they put on the floor by traffic lights before you start to think hmm maybe I should have worn flats.

PUMPKIN FARM: ESSINGTON FRUIT FARM

The other day I received an email from Topshop (Oh my god *explodes*) asking to do a Halloween collaboration!! I was sooo excited and spent about five hours choosing my perfect Halloween Topshop outfit! I really wanted to wear every Halloween colour apart from red, which worked out really well as I managed to find the purple shoes and the green top (and they're both velvet oh my god my favourite yay!) and although you probably can't see it, I have orange nail varnish on! Although I think the pumpkins pretty much makeup for the lack of orange in my outfit haha! I love that if I remove the Halloween transfer tattoos and the socks, I could wear this as a completely normal outfit, so I will definitely be wearing all of these items again in the very near future... tomorrow is very tempting indeed.

We organised a photoshoot at the wonderful Essington Fruit Farm in Wolverhampton where you can pick your own.. well.. pretty much everything. There was a huge list of tasty fruit and veg which you can pick normally, but unfortunately as its now not the right time of year for it most of the fruit isn't available anymore, but there are many many pumpkins right now as you can probably see and its well worth the visit because its such a fun day out and also because of the (extremely instagrammable) 99p cupcakes that are sold in the farm shop which also sells many other fabulous things which I wanted to buy, and that I also took photos of, instagram is going to be overrun with some very cute photos over the next few days. Also!! Over the half term weekend they're doing trailer rides up to the field where you can pick your own pumpkin! So um yeah, I just want to thank you Essington Farm for letting me take over your pumpkin patch for the day it was so much fun!! (and very cold, bring a sweater kids)

I decided to name this look after the Marilyn Manson song Prelude (The Family Trip) which was originally from the film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and the first half was written by Roald Dahl and it always reminds me of Halloween because of chocolate and sweeeeets!! Despite the fact that I'm pretty sure its set around Christmas? Oh well, in my brain Manson + Chocolate = Halloween.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN FROM ME AND TOPSHOP!!

BEYOND RETRO PRESS DAY OUTFIT



ACID WASH JEANS: *BEYOND RETRO
FAUX LEATHER COAT: *BOOHOO
CREEPERS: EBAY
SCARF: CHARITY SHOP

I found these cute lil photos on my mac from many months ago when I still lived in London. They were taken at one of the Beyond Retro press days, it was super cold and thats when I first met the wonderful Ellie from Rose and Vintage who has the best style ever!! It was such a fun press day because we just roamed around the shop looking at all the odd bits and pieces and we found this really cool sofa that I just had to take photos on, eventually they had to tell us the press day was over and it was time for us to leave, sad sad sad :(

On another note, yesterday my macbook broke after installing Yosemite, the screen went super pixelated and green. We were about to take it to the apple store but then I booted it up and its working fine, apart from the fact my dad tried to mess with the colour settings so that I could use it yesterday and is now coating everything in a subtle (not so subtle) blue tinge. Try as I might I can't get the colour settings to change their tunes in the display settings, I think he might have edited the original mac theme. Such computer rage!!

Edit: I did it yay!!!
