Autumnal shoe-wishlist*



This season there are some really stunning, dreamy designs on the shoe spectrum of things; namely feisty lace-up heels, fringed boots, sharp stilettos. I thought black and burgundy would be a good theme to go for when putting together my dream Autumnal wish-list for shoes. Two colours after all, that kick autumn and winter hard in the style stakes. Winter 2015 is looking very stylish shoe wise!

Brantano have definitely caught my eye; I'm crushing on the mid-heel and all its smartly tailored vibes for the office, the diamond dancer sandals (cute name alert) and am also eyeing up the pretty two tone monochrome ballet pump, perfect to add a bit of class and an injection of class to any Autumnal shoe-drobe. Not only do they have smart, chic styles like this, if you check out their website, Brantano stock a whole range of styles, perfect for any occasion, season, time or place! 


Have you heard of Brantano?
What do you think of the wish-list?

Cactus Cool





Ahh, it was only a matter of time before I got the green guns out; green lipstick, green glasses, green jewels, green cactus cool. I had dreams of green ombre too, but unfortunately despite seeking, I couldn't find a chalk that I liked the look of. Leftover pink it had to be... my third choice as I lost the gold ombre I bought the other week! Trials and tribulations of being a walking ombre obsessive. How do you like the Halloween hue to this post though?

As much as I love this cactus crop from Motel, I think the divine necklace Happiness Boutique kindly gifted me; the Be Special Deep Green Statement Necklace definitely adds the most jazz to the ootd. Special for sure! I've fast fallen for the glittering green rhinestones. If you haven't already checked the brand out, I deffo recommend you do ASAP! Not only have they got a treasure trove of jewels and bling, all of it beautifully unique and enchantingly gorgeous for any occasion, they also offer free shipping as well as a customer rewards program. AND if that wasn't tempting you enough, you can also enter their monthly giveaway to win one of their stunning statement necklaces. 

Lastly, the highlight of my week: Straight Outta Compton. Anyone else seen it? Honestly I'm a bit of a rap/hip hop music maniac so I guess it's no surprise that I found it super inspiring, awe-amazing and emotionally epic. I would seriously recommend you go see, even if you're not the biggest NWA fan. My mum loved every minute and she's 61 with no idea who NWA were before the screening. Think she's got a little crush on Corey Hawkins who plays Dr Dre, but keep it secret, yeah? The actors who portrayed Cube, Dre & Eazy E were all supremely good. And being a massive Tupac fan, I never thought I'd ever take any actor playing him seriously, but even Marcc Rose was sensational; getting Pac's mannerisms, look, voice and essence down to a T.  Definitely oscar worthy stuff! Yes I can go on about this all day. Seeing it for the fourth time next week *don't judge*. Amendment: Fifth time tonight. Probably the last time, seeing as it's going to be taken off screens next week. *Dammit*.

7 summer nights, 7 sunsets

Throughout the summer season I've spent many a night capturing sunsets from my bedroom window (risking my life in the process as my window is bloody dodgy and it won't lock and I get night terrors about it, but hey that's another story). This is a sunset story. Halfway through the summer I decided to do an aftermath post later in the year showcasing sunsets highlighted in the skies. Aside from the moon and the stars, the sea and the cosmic planets, sunsets have definitely become a pretty epic love affair of mine. So thank you sun, cheers sky. Representing seven nights, seven stunning sunsets....


      July's furious melting pot of  pure pink and inky purple


          August blazed up burnt orange 


       Grey warning over bubblegum pink

       Milky way magic

      Caramel Crush

  Blue smoke

      Flying high...


Let me know which one's your favourite below!
Are you a lover of a good summer sunset?
