If for whatever reason you stumbled across my Insta stories in the last few weeks, you’ll know I’ve had a bit of a saga trying to find a pair of dungarees I like that don’t make me feel like a heffa. If you haven’t seen it, then you’re about to read the saga. Lucky you. I’ll try and keep it as short as possible though. We’ve all got stuff to do.
This month’s favourites post seems a nice mix of beauty and fashion, which is nice as usually my favourites is quite beauty heavy! So here’s what I loved this month 🙂
Only out a week late, (but what’s a week between mates, right?) here’s my October favourites list of things I’ve been loving and it’s a pretty varied list this month 🙂
In a previous post, I went to Topshop to try out their personal shopping service, which you can read about here. I said I’d picked up a couple of bits and that I’d do an outfit of the day post so this is what I bought!
I have been known, on occasion, to be a stubborn little sausage. That being said, I’m also willing to admit when I’m wrong. And you’re possibly wondering where the hell am I going with this…
Well for years I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Topshop; on the one hand, it’s always full of (in my mind) stick-thin giggly kids wearing cropped tops, they sell alternative band tees to people who don’t have the slightest idea who the bands are, and gold scars because there are “flaws worth fighting for”. W the actual F?
On the other hand, I often walk past with a sense that I wish I was cool enough to shop there and look good in the clothes! But once you hit your 30s, places like Topshop kinda seem off-limits. Amiright?
Two weeks ago I met up with the brilliant Aine (Honestly Aine) in London and we made our way to the Danubis Hotel in Regent’s Park for the Big Blogger Expo 2016. (Although we obviously stopped at 221B Baker Street too, because it would be rude not to!)
Saturday was pretty awesome to be honest; I met up with Tania, one of my lovely blogger friends and we hung out all afternoon. We popped into Boots and I resisted buying the new Maybelline contour stick and then went up to Debenhams because her friend heard a rumour that there was a Too Faced counter. The rumours were absolutely true and we met such a lovely lady who colour matched me for their foundation (but it was out of stock, boooo) and let us smell the Peach palette!! It really does smell like peaches 😀
We then popped down to 114 Church St, the pop up event space to meet Chloe. She owns CloClothes and was there as part of The Maker Club. All the clothing is handmade by her and just looks incredible.
It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these; mostly because I hadn’t really bought anything for a few months. But it’s back and there are some things I’ve been absolutely loving!
So remember back in January and I posted my first outfit of the day post and I said it probably wouldn’t become a regular feature? Well today I’m having a good body image day so to celebrate, I’m sharing another outfit of the day. Because who knows when I’ll feel this good about my wobbly tum and slightly too large thighs again?
