Week In Photos #26

Bakin' with Pete / Downloading! / Bagels for our epic breakfasts / Matches to light all my new candles / babies keeping warm / I don't think I have enough nail varnishes yet.. do you? / New socks / Spoilt #1 / Spoilt #2 / Dan cooked me dinner / & pudding / Dini dog giving me evils :')

First of all, let's imagine this collage has another two rows of photos. We wouldn't have to imagine if someone hadn't deleted the files off her camera before copying them to a file.. -sigh-
This week has consisted of alot of food, work & chilly winter days. Alan (my car) is slowly dying more & more & even though I've filled him with pretty fairy lights, he is still grumpy it is winter & is refusing to move further than my 15min drive to work.. mmm.. anyone know how to cheer a car up? Suggestions welcome. : )
Hope you're all having a good week!

Star Lytes - Vanilla Creme

Ladies & gentlemen, let me introduce you to my new obsession. Candles. But not just any candles, Star Lytes candles.
This year I've already bought about 8 (oops). I know every blogger in the world is obsessed with Yankie candles - but being so expensive, I've tried to find a suitable alternative. I have to say, Star Lytes candles smell just as amazing if not better than any Yankee candle I've smelt. My favourite is the Vanilla Creme, but they do other Christmas scents, such as Cinnamon Sticks & Snow-capped Pine. They come in a range of sizes like the Yankee candles. The biggest one I own is 510g. I also bought 4 of the smaller sized ones which have lasted me ages & were in a pack for £3.99 (roughly £1 each!)

Have you tried Star Lytes? I can't recommend them enough, seriously. : D

OOTD - Black & White


Top - Unknown (mum's wardrobe) / Skirt - Primark / Belt - Primark / Tights - Tesco / Boots - Primark / Earrings - Topshop / Nails - No7 & Models Own / Lipstick - Revlon Lip Butter.
 These outfit photos must have been taken about a month ago! How awful that I'm just getting round to posting it. : / 
I absolutely adore this combo, a white top with a black skirt & boots is so effortless but looks so lovely.
Oh & I'm really getting into the Christmas spirit now, I've covered my house with scented candles & mince pies & sherry are on my shopping list for tomorrow! : D Who else is excited for Christmas?!

NOTW #13

Ah, I adore these polishes.
The Barry M Pink Sapphire Glitter is so un-usual. Unlike a normal glitter, it has silver strands & a mixture of sequins & small glitter particals in it. So pretty & very Christmasy. Ontop of my old favourite Utopia (which hasn't really left my nails since I bought it) I adore these colours together.

Have you tried either of these polishes?

My Winter Boots #2

So this is my 2nd Winter boot post. If you haven't seen my first pair of boots, make sure you check those out too. : )
 Right so I basically love these! They have a slightly smaller heel than my Primark ones, have gold studs & are saude. My first intention was to only keep one pair of these boots, but one being silver & the other gold, I convinced myself there was a huge difference of course, so I could keep both. ; D Which is true.. right? I mean.. a gold pair & a silver pair you can match with whatever you're wearing..

New Look - £22.99
Only negative is they are both saude, I do need to get some of that aweome protective spray or a more suitable pair for the wet weather.. mmm more shoes.. never a bad thing. ; )
What do you think lovelies?

Went on a massive shopping spree with Gemma last Wednesday & scooped up alot of Lush products as well as some clothes in the sales. I'm awful when I go not to spend money.. I always come back with so much stuff..
Jon took me to see the Lion King on Thursday, oh my gosh it's such an amazing show. Have any of you seen it in London? If you haven't, I highly recommend it.
Also, my bowler hat & tartan scarf arrived. I'm seriously in love with this combo!
Hope you're well lovelies, stay tuned for my next post to see my other pair of Winter boots. If you missed the first pair, the post is here. : )

My Winter Boots

I love a black ankle boot. Honestly, who doesn't? There are so many designs around at the moment as well, it's hard not to find one you like. So, here's my first beautiful pair. (No idea what's up with the colour of these photos, the lighting made them look really strange!)

Primark - £18
Offffft, I'm in love seriously. I've been wearing these boots to death over the past month as you can probably see!
They have the perfect size heel as well. I wore them up to London last week & didn't feel any discomfort the entire day! Amazing. The studs also add such a cool edge to any outfit. Only problem is they are impossible to wear in the rain. Being a saude material, you have to save them for dry days.
What do you think lovelies? I'll show you my other Winter boot purchase in my next post so make sure you check back!
