Winter Is Upon Us

Why, hello there. Here is a quick winter update. I recently went on a lucrative trip to Selfridges and bought some killer tights, a jumper and some insane boots. Check out the photos. I also purchased a very retro looking slip dress from Topshop. Very '30s chic. I went to Marc by Marc Jacobs, how cool is that place? I especially love Hugo, by the way. In there I bought this awesome zip necklace, only £11, KA-CHING. On another note, I am a huuuuge Twilight fan but I have still not managed to see New Moon yet. It is only a matter of time before I become obsessed with that too. The soundtrack is pretty good from what I have heard. On the music scene, I am loving The Fleet Foxes {again} for a winter kinda feel. I have been listening to old music at the mo, as there are no good new songs. Joy Division are incredible as always and the Smiths too. Anyone listen to Morrissey on Desert Island Discs? Genius. My great friend Tilda is probably the only person who shares the same taste in music as me... who is also 13. We are a pretty rocking pair of buddys. Woop woop. She has introduced me to some amazing bands such as: The Temper Trap, Mumford & Sons and a whole lot more. I will have some more music posts soon-ish. ENJOY :)

All Saints boots. Rather groovy.

Topshop tights. Pretty, huh?

Topshop coat. SO COSY IT IS INSANE.

The b-e-a-utiful Topshop dress. LAAV ITT.

This is my partay look. Topshop jumper, American Apparel skirt, Topshop tights,
Marc by Marc Jacobs necklace.

Winter Blues

Okay, so it is November in London. That means: dark, damp, miserable, FREEZING, and tons of homework. But, believe it or not, Winter is my favourite time of the year. LOL. Why, you may ask? Well, let's face it, you get to 'layer'. Think about it, you get to wear your favourite stuff at once. That is always a good'en. Also, in the Winter times I look like a vampire. SCORE. Not due to any cosmetic potions, but basically my freckles fade and my hair gets darker, plus, my Irish skin makes me look kinda see through! I could pass for a Cullen, which is always a good thing in my book. More importantly, I get to start my Christmas wish list, which this year includes:

1. Clothes {naturally}
2. Money, to buy clothes
3. Retro record player so I can dance around like a fool, in my new clothes.

OH YEAH, NEARLY FORGOT, I know Halloween was yonks ago but seeing at it is one of the best holidays ever, I think I need to write a little bit about it. This year I spent it with a few friends, one of them including my male friend, Tomer, who wore Uggs, jeggings, an Abercrombie t-shirt and a bra, over the top that is. Priceless. Tomer, I will save you form the blushing as I will not put the photos on here. You owe me big time, man. Me and my good pal Kim were Batman and Batgirl.

The awesome cake Kim and I made. Truly Scrumptious.

Me and Kim. Yes, I do have 'Be jealous' written on my sternum.
Gotta problem with that?
Me: dress Fancy dress shop, shoes Vivienne Westwood with Melissa, bag Luella
Kim: shoes Doc Martins, socks {our school hockey socks}, very un-visible shorts Topshop, blazer Luella, vest American Apparel, bow Accessorize.

Some of my newest Winter favourites:

Vivienne Westwood Melissa heels, tights Topshop. J'ADORE.

All Saints sleevless leather studded jacket. Very cool.

H&M dress. Affordable and gorgeous. My favourite combo :)

Music makes me lose control

Seeing as I am a HUGE fan of all types of music, I think I should write about my favourite artists and what not. Here we go.

At the moment, I love the Smiths as always, Mumford & Sons are pretty awesome, Fleet Foxes, Jeff Buckley will always be at the top of my list, Kings of Leon are good and I am lovin' Florence & the Machine. Here are some of my Winter favourites :

Maybe that is enough for today. Trust me, ALOT more to come. LATERS.
