I know, I know. I'm well over-due an update.

So, turns out uni isn't all about cheap drinks, late nights, curaazzy antics and sore heads. You actually have to do work. I know right, who'd of thought? Basically, Ive been snowed under with coursework, getting early nights, lots of housework and hibernating. I need my life back...

On that note, its on the cards for a messy saturday night in town. Thank the lord.

I'll upadate with outfits/makeup styles later this week. Promise :)

As a quick post, I thought I'd share with you some of my Outfits of the Day. Its been hella cold up north so I've been all wrapped up and cosy...which I love!

Oversized Jumper- Topshop (This Season)
High waisted trousers- H&M
Boots- All Saints
Fur Head Band- Attic Boutique.

On thought, its a military-esque look, which is not exactly what I was going for...but hey!

I thought my make-up should be a bit more over dramatic since my outfit is a pallette of Autumnal shades. So, you guessed it...Bring on the coral!

Fake it Up!

Hallelujah! There is a God. According to my bible, which for you fashionistas is Look magazine, the tan is back.

Thats right ladies, you can now sport a mahogany glow without feeling a little guilty or self-concious that you look like an oompa lumpa! Dont get me wrong, I am not condemning that you bathe yourself in layers of the darkest Fake Bake, but a healthy sun-kissed glow is definately in this season...strange as generally you dont tan in winter? 

According to Look, at the Topshop Unique fashion show, 48 models were dipped three times to them dark enough. Finished with some illuminator for and iridescent sheen.
Super tanned Audrina Patridge is just the example for this seasons rich tan look. Pass me the St Tropez..

The new pumps.

It kills me to say the era of the ballet pumps have come to an end. Not to worry, these will be your new best friend...

The brogues are as vintage as it comes. They've been around for decades, and now its the Digital Generations turn to sport these delights.

Both practical and quirky, they're the perfect balance. Personally, I adore Alexander McQueen brogues, they've got a gorgeous rustic look to them, which oozes vintage. But for more reasonable prices, try Topshop or even Primark for your own BroBro's.

All the fashion-forward celebs such as Fearne Cotton and Alexa Chung have been seen working the old-school shoes. If its good enough for them, its good enough for us.

Crazy about Coral.

I think I've been chanelling the coral lips for over a month now. I love them. The brighter the better.

Since its getting dark outside, it makes me feel better to add a pop of colour to my look, and coral is the perfect tone. It can look really vibrant to the pale skinned beautys, or really warm to those olive tones.

Ive been using Barry M's 147, as I like the matte look and it ensures a long lasting stay. Although YSL Rouge Pur Couture has some daring shades of coral, but I feel with YSL lipsticks they're more moisture enriching rather than colour enriching. Nothing wrong with that, but with coral..its all about the colour!

New Move

So, since Ive started University this year, my Mum and Dad thought its time I got my own place..and I love it!

I love the independance of living on my own (although I share the flat with my boyfriend, its not quite on my own). We stay right in the city centre, so as soon as I walk out the doors..I walk into the hustle and bustle of city living. The down-side is the constent noise; sirens, cars, people. The up-side is that my beloved Topshop and All Saints is a 30 second walk :)

Its a cute little flat, just perfect for the two of us. Yes thats a faux Mark Rothko piece on the wall, had I own £7million then its likely it would be the original..

Heart Henry Holland!

I am loving my Henry Holland suspender-esque tights. Yeh, there controversial. Yeh, there edgey. And Yeh, thats why I love them!

There is a selection of styles from cute heart embellished ones, to the full-on suspenders! I got mine £12 from River Island..and money well spent!

Worn with Topshop Bodycon Dress, and Topshop waterfall was more of a subtle look.
Night out in Edinburgh with my gorgeous girls...the lovely Anna in a Topshop Coral Dress.

What do you think, hint of quirkiness or best left in the bedroom?
