NEW BALANCE

Re discovered my old pair of New Balance the other day and have fallen back in love with them. Kind of good to give the Superstars a break.

KYLIE LIP (ATTEMPT)

We all know Kylie Jenner has pretty much nailed the whole 'draw your lips on over botox' thing. But when I found this out I just didn't really know what to think... surely it just looks beyond ridiculous to draw past your lip line for bigger lips? I don't know how I feel about looking like a clown. But the other weekend I accidentally tried it, as in, I was a bit drunk when I was putting on my lipstick and went a bit over top, well over the lines. Then I just decided to embrace it. This was the result.... (apologies for the pouty selfies, as previously stated, I was a bit drunk and once I've had a drink I think I am actually Kylie Jenner.)

WORKWEAR

I usually wear black and black and navy and grey and white and black. At work I try to dress relatively comfortable. I'm still in love this these boots from Office I bought years ago in their sale. Then this oversize Topshop jumpsuit is a fail safe and looks good with pretty much anything. Also excuse the 0 make up effort. I get up at 5:30am and can rarely be bothered with make up for work!

HOME

I love my home so much. It's still not exactly how we would want it, but because we rent it's hard to make that happen. It feels so cosy and comfortable, and so warm. Because we are on the 12th floor we still haven't had to put the heating on, which is also amazing for my bank account.

CANDLES

So in love with these cute little initial candles I picked up from a little shop in Sheffield.

COORDINATES

The other day I finally received this beautiful bracelet. Tom ordered it for me as a surprise wedding gift to wear on the day itself. Unfortunately we had a lot of issues in the process, so it didn't arrive on time, but the beauty of it more than makes up for that.

Engraved on the outside are the coordinates to the church we were married in, and on the inside holds our initials and the wedding date. I am completely obsessed with it!

I really love the idea of using coordinates to personalise things, for bridesmaid gifts (without knowing about Tom's surprise present for me!) I also had coordinate bracelets made up for them, each one to an individual place that's special between them and myself. Then on the morning of the wedding they unwrapped them and googled the coordinates to find out the locations I picked! To be honest, they mostly guessed  before they managed to google! It was a really lovely moment.

Tom got my bracelet from Coordinates Collection a company based in LA. Although we had some troubles with our order, they were extremely kind and helpful in resolving the issues. And the bracelet itself is so stunning. Make sure you check them out!





LAZY SUNDAY

I love spending Sunday afternoons at home with my lovely husband. Such a good way to get set up for the week ahead.

MORE H&M

I wrote about finding some bargains in H&M earlier in the week, here are some more! This amazing jumper was only £20 full price. However, I have been told it resembles a straight jacket...... doesn't make me love it any less though. Then these beautiful wide leg black trousers were an amazing £10 from the sale dregs! Nothing more satisfying than finding an amazing bargain.

FANCIE

We went out for breakfast on Sunday morning with my parents who came up to visit. Sheffield is full of independent cafes, restaurants, boutiques etc. Which is one of the many reasons why I absolutely love it! Whenever my parents come to visit I like to take them to a new place every time. So this weekend we visited the newly re opened Fancie. The food and service was amazing, I loved it before, and definitely love it even more now. If you get the chance make sure you go down to Ecclesall Road to sample the food, coffee and cocktails!

FIREWORKS

Last night we had some fireworks and sparklers at Tom's parents house. It's an annual birthday celebration for his brother, Matt. Lots of hot dogs, soup, baked potatoes, cake and tea. I love fireworks a lot, they make me cry quite a lot as well.



H&M

I dragged Tom around H&M for a good hour or so on Saturday. Recently I've found so many amazing items for so cheap! (You will see lots of them pop up over the next few weeks!)
I picked up this dress from the dregs of the sale, for £4!! Couldn't quite believe it when I saw the price!

TO INFINITY

Tom and I decided we wanted to start a collection of all the toys from Toy Story. So we started a tradition to buy one for each other on every birthday. It started with Woody on my birthday and then I got Tom Buzz for his. I think they are pretty additions to our home!

SIMPLE

I like to keep my house interiors simple with detailed elements. I take massive amounts of inspiration from Scandi designs, both in decorating and fashion. But let's be honest, who doesn't these days.

Here are a few bedroom details from my simple home.

BARE LEGS IN NOVEMBER

I actually can't believe it's November and I'm not needing to wear tights yet. This is the best weather, where you can wear a couple of layers but a coat isn't completely necessary. 

I fell in love with this skirt ages ago when it was featured on a campaign at work. However it was £60, and I really couldn't justify it. Even with discount. Luckily it went into sale not too long ago, where I got it for £15. I may start wearing it everyday, as it is the perfect layering piece. Obviously along with Superstars.

Dress// ASOS
Skirt// Urban Outfitters
Shoes// Adidas at Urban Outfitters
Necklace// Collard Manson

WINE OR YOGA?

Wine.

Friday nights I usually go to yoga, but last Friday yoga lost, wine won. Que sera sera.

CAMERA ROLL SURPRISES

I was looking through my camera roll this week and found lots of photos from our wedding night, (as strange as that sounds, not inappropriate, weird photos) We drank a lot of champagne, and so therefore a hotel room photo shoot was guaranteed.

SUPERSTARS

Last week I finally got round to buying some new Adidas Superstars. I had some in about 2001 and wore them every minute I wasn't at school, so wearing them now is like a weird flashback. I love them more this time round than I did the first. They quite literally go with every outfit, I even contemplated wearing them on a night out. (I didn't) however I feel I may need a superstar intervention soon.

SECOND HAND BEAUTY

I found this stunning coat on eBay the other day. Vintage M&S wool beauty. I've been looking for one for so long, I'm glad I held out, as this one is completely perfect. And was the bargain price of £30. 

My only issue is that it really smells. It's in mint condition, but has obviously been sitting in a smelly house for a while (as most vintage/second hand things do I suppose) but I have a very sensitive nose and so I'm on a mission to get it smelling like clean linen. It's going to the dry cleaners this week. 

It's beautiful all the same!
