Smoking Slippers...

Hey everyone

So as of late I've developed a new shoe obsession - there was duck boots, sperries and now it's the turn of the Smoking Slipper

I partially blame {the Londoner} for this obsession because of these two posts -

{foxy} - I love love love {this} dress from ASOS too!


I've scoured the interwebs (after looking through basically every shop in my town and finding absolutely nothing!) and have gathered together my faves here...


Then...I was wandering around the Bull Ring shopping centre in Birmingham when I went to go pick up my award and spied these two beauties in the window - and I fell in love


Are you a fan of smoking slippers?
Where have you found some smoking slippers?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey everyone


I hope that y'all are having a fabulous Thanksgiving and that you're spending it with your loved ones, gorging on yummy food and generally having a chilled out time :)

Speaking of yummy food - Ma and I have decided to make ourselves a Thanksgiving feast for dinner tonight - we're going all out after some {pinterest} research we've decided to have a roast chicken (I know it should be turkey but we're having turkey for Christmas and that's not that far away!), green beans, corn, biscuits (well we're having scones because we haven't had time to source the ingredients to make biscuits so I'm hoping that's similar!), gravy, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and stuffing - I'm so excited!

MWIP: 47/52...

 Hey everyone

This week was jam-packed so I've got loads of pictures to share with y'all - here's what I got up to, I...

...couldn't resist buying some new books

...got very confused when I notice that the sky had a definite purple tinge to it one evening!

...was not impressed when it started hailing/sleeting/snowing just as I was leaving my lecture - I was absolutely freezing by the time I made it to my car!
...spent a lot of time working on my projects

...was very impressed with my diagram making skills!

...managed to take some great (if I do say so myself!) photographs of the sunset when I took Prin for a walk

...made a complete mess of my room when I was cutting it super fine to meet my deadline #oops

...was super excited when Ma brought home my advent calender - it must be getting close to Christmas!

...thoroughly enjoyed trying to decide whether I like the Starbucks Peppermint Hot Chocolate or the Costa Black Forest Hot Chocolate more!
side note: don't ya just love holiday cups?! They make me feel so festive!

...took a #shamelessselfie to document the fact that it is definitely winter because I broke my fave JW snood out!

...painted (my atrocious) nails with Barry M 'Blue Grape' - the perfect cobalt blue!

...Ma and I headed off to Blackpool for the weekend - we definitely over packed - Ma's Mini was absolutely stuffed!

...we arrived in Blackpool just as the sun was setting over the sea - it was stunning!

...had an awesome time in Blackpool, spending time with my beautiful god daughter and my best friend was just the best: it was a tinsel and turkey weekend so it was super festive, we had a great time wandering around the city, Ma had some quality times with Boodles on the beach, we snapped some pictures for Boodles' nursery book; spending time with my best friend and her family was awesome, Boodles and I had matching reindeer hats; the adults got way to invested in the 2p machines, Boodles was more interested in the Iggle Piggle ride!, we found the coca-cola van so had free coke - it was a fab weekend!

...seeing chocolate gold coins in the shops definitely made it feel like Christmas is coming!

...going through the JW Christmas Handbook and gift guide is one of my fave parts of the run up to Christmas!

...Ma and I did some cheeky Christmas shopping from Fortnum's - we loved it!

...took some pics of Little Prin, obviously! Her being very interested on what was going on outside, making puppy dog eyes at me when I was packing to go away, just being cute, enjoying our walk together, helping me do some blogging, helping me do some of my project work, sleeping, wearing her matching velour tracksuit with me!


I hope you all had a great week - let me know what you got up to in the comments!

It's Officially Winter...

Hey everyone

So, it has started to turn a bit more chilly here in England at the moment which has made me dig out my winter essentials and staples so I thought I'd share them with y'all...



My absolute standard outfit for the winter is {leggings}, {crew neck sweater} or {hoodie} (my JW ones are my fave - they're so snuggly!) and {uggs} (#sorryimnotsorry but they are so warm and comfy!). Another classic outfit that I like to wear at least once a week is a black dress - my fave shape at the moment is a {skater} one - with black opaque tights and {doc martens} I love how the patent black ones look a bit more girly than the normal black ones - I like Docs a whole lot more than combat boots because of how chunky they are (I think that they just look better with my leg shape). I also love throwing on a structured hat with that outfit (and any other outfit I can get away with wearing one!) because of my {hat obsession}, a black {floppy felt hat} is just so chic! As for accessories, {fluffy socks} just make any drizzly day better, talking of drizzle an {umbrella} and {wellibobs} are a must at this time of year, a good {snood} can be thrown on with any outfit and a snuggly {bobble hat} instantly warms me up on a chilly day, but {earmuffs} do the job when I'm having a good hair day! When I come home the first thing I do is put on my pjs and a {onesie} is just the epitome of comfy pjs! A new season wouldn't be complete without a new bag for me - my latest obsession is the Rebecca Minkoff {MAB tote mini}.

What do reach for when the weather turns colder?

MWIP: 46/52...

Hey everyone

So it's getting to that time in the semester when all of my deadlines are due (final year is still kicking my derriere) but I still managed to take lots of pictures - here's what I got up to this week, I...

...enjoyed a peppermint hot chocolate from Starbucks

....broke out my new {baby blue} winter coat for the first time and absolutely fell in love with how cosy and warm it is!

...felt very glam when I teamed a red lip with an LBD and a glitzy statement necklace when I went out on Saturday night

...had champagne and Nam and G's before we went to the theatre on Saturday night 
side note: how cute does my Grandad look?

...had a lovely time at the theatre with the family - we went to see 'Beyond the Barricade' which is a show that is a collection of some of the best known songs from great musicals that are on now and those that were on in the past - I love a good musical - sung by actors that have actually been in Les Mis productions! Plus the finale was a collection of songs from Les Mis which is my absolute fave musical so I was loving it!

...saw the first frost of the season at the field - it's definitely winter now!

...was followed around the field by this little one - I swear that he thinks he's a puppy sometimes!

...took a selfie with my little man - yep he chose the pose all by himself :P

...went to go pick up my award with Ma and Nam - it was their first experience listening to a research lecture so their reaction was pretty interesting - they loved it!

...went to my award ceremony to accept my award - plus they gave me £50 of Waterstones vouchers so the bookworm in me is very excited!

...went all minnie/mickey mouse in my pjs - so comfy!

...had deadline after deadline this week with no let up 

...felt like being ever so slightly festive with my nail polish choice this week - I went with Barry M's Gelly in Pomegranate - a lovely classic glossy red 

...had breakfast from Mcdonalds again - so good!

...spied my babies looking all innocent trying to pretend that they hadn't just broke the fence that they were standing next too - so cheeky!

...bought an advent calender for Prin - I know it's a bit of an overkill but I couldn't resist it!

...got waay too over excited at the new of Mcfly and Busted joining forces to do a tour in 2014 - I luckily managed to get tickets for me, K and C from uni - I'm so excited to see my boys in concert again! 
Not that I'm the biggest Busted fan - my heart will always and has always belonged to Mcfly - but I will support Mcfly in whatever they do!

...had a girly night in with my bestie Lj and my goddaughter with a takeaway and watching Children in Need - highlight of the night was watching Boodles sing and dance along to Mcfly playing LIOTR without any prompting from me #proudauntiebel

...took a selfie with my goddaughter - obvs

...continued my obsession with Toblerone - it's just so good!

...spent some time bringing my planner up to date - I was nearly two weeks behind because things with uni have gotten so crazy!

....spent some of my Waterstones vouchers on this super awesome case for my Kindle 

...took some pictures of Little Prin when she was: snoozing on my bed, cuddling with me on my Tuesday TV night, begging me not to go out on Friday night (look at those puppy dog eyes!), chilling on my bed, sitting at her place at the table for Sunday lunch, having snuggles.
