Golden Wonder Bath Bomb

There's nothing more perfect than a bath when your feeling a little ill/blue/hungover/cold, ok I just love a good bath ok! When it comes down to it there is only one place I go to for my bathtime habit, and unsurprisingly it's Lush. When it comes to the art of a good bath Lush are at the top of the game, they literally have EVERYTHING. 

When I went along to their Christmas event I knew I had to pick up something sparkly for myself, and the Golden Wonder bath bomb was pretty much screaming to be tried. This gift box shaped dream is hollow with three tiny bath bombs inside, so when it fizzes away in your bath they start exploding colours out the side! This smells really warming, it makes me think of mulled wine and cinnamon, the colours are beautiful, a real Christmas treat. 

Do you obsess over a bath as much as me?

Winter Pastels

Winter doesn't have to mean a dark wardrobe. I love wearing paler colours in winter, and whilst winter whites is one of my all time favourite trends, it's nice to change it up with some pattern and pastels. 

These trousers remind me of a China teacup, which is never a bad thing! The mint and baby blue make a bit of a brighter statement and paired with the grey jumper and beanie (essential in this weather!) this is definitely an all day look. Now that it's getting colder how are you changing up your wardrobe?

Clashing colours.

There's something to be said for wearing something you hate. I hate red and pink together, yeah I hate it! And I know it might not seem like much to people but red nails and a pink coat is a big no no for me.

When I got dressed this morning I considered re-painting my nails pink, but the more and more I look at it the more I kinda like it....what's happening to me?! I am loving baroque print at the moment and this green and black number is really easy to wear, plus I love a little peter pan collar! Layering is something that is essential for winter, I love that the over sized biker trend is still going strong because I can fit all my leather jackets under them, double biker for the win. Paired with some printed tights and all black accessories it really tones down the colour clash....even if it is only tiny!

Bon fire night essentials

Remember remember the 5th of November....

Bonfire night is upon us and it's set to be a chilly one! I have compiled a little essential list for you lovelies, to make sure you stay cosy if your heading out side and snuggly if your staying in. 

For those of you heading out make sure your wrapped up, this coat from Debenhams is cosy and you'll look adorable. 

This adorable headband from Crown and Glory will make sure you shine as bright as those fireworks.

Gloves are so last year (I can't believe I just said that), keep your hands cosy with these knitted mittens from Asos.

Spending time outside in Winter is never good for your skin, keep your face protected with Dr Hauschka Rose cream, it's cruelty free too!

Keep the nip off with some tea/coffee/mulled wine in this adorable travel cup by Happy Jackson.

If you happen to be staying in remember to keep cosy! Blankets are a must and this faux fur number from Next will have you snuggled up in no time. 

There's nothing quite like a scented candle to make a room feel warmer, Shearer Candles are made in Scotland and have an amazing range of scents, I love the Frankincense and Myrrh in the glass jar.

Keep warm with a little home-made mulled wine, it's super easy and tastes delicious.

If you have pets keep them safe, no going out at night and lots of cuddles. Trust me when I say that a jumper helps! If you have a anxious dog you'll probably have heard of Thunder Shirt already but if not it's a shirt that applies a very small amount of pressure to your dogs chest and it makes them feel safe. As my dogs are a bit of an awkward shape the brand never fits them, but I have found that a normal jumper does the trick, as long as it is snug enough. Here's Honeybee in her jumper last year.

Last but certainly not least, pop on a good movie and relax. I'll be watching V for keeping with the theme and everything. 

Have an awesome bon fire night whatever you get up to!

A puppy called Sebastian, checked coats and creepers.

Graphic tee's are coming back with a bang this AW. If your after cute animals there's one company you need to keep your eye on. Let me introduce Brat & Suzie

Created by sisters Polly & Charlotte with the intention to put the fun back into fashion. They started their business selling at the Brick Lane market and it's been non stop from there! The tshirts, jumpers and accessories have been flying off the shelves and the sky's the limit for these hardworking sisters. They also have help from Amber the Chihuahua, who I'm convinced is the creative genius behind the brand...What would I like to see next from Brat & Suzie? Homeware, and more Christmas items like wrapping paper. Have you seen their Christmas cards by Little Wolf?! Too good.

My favourite item from their new collection has to be the Top Hat tshirt, you can't go wrong with a high brow puppy! I've named him Sebastian. 

There is a very simple way to dress up jeans and a tshirt...a brushed wool coat! My new checked number adds a nice pop of colour to this outfit and paired with my white creepers it's perfect for wandering the shops this winter!
