Top 5 Right Now | Topshop Jackets


It's no secret that i'm a bit of a Topshop-aholic, not even sorry. Last year I bought, hands down, the best coat in the world from Topshop and this year, i'm eyeing them up again and I need your help to help me decide which I should get! So here are the options.

First up is this gorgeous Check Print Jersey Coat. Now if you know me in person, you'll know that I lack, height. I think i'd need to try this baby on to see if it suited me or not because i'm scared it'll just drown me! I feel as though this coat can completely change an outfit, simply throw it over a pair of jeans and a tee and you're sorted! You can grab it online now for £75

Next up is a Parka Jacket, of course! Such a casual/essential for winter! The parka I bagged last year is rather large/hefty, no hate, but sometimes you just want something a bit lighter, especially if you're going to have to be taking it on and off constantly. What makes this jacket for me is the furry hood, winning? Buy it here for £78.

My favourite of the five is this Dogtooth Wrap Over Coat. Such a flattering fit and the dogtooth pattern is in, yet again! It sort of reminds me of a dressing gown and make's it seem even more comfortable. Does that make sense or am I just losing it? Of course my favourite would be the most expensive on the list wouldn't it. You can order this online now for £85

This jacket is pretty much the same as the first parka except it's a deep wine red shade rather than your usual parka colour. Perfect for the festive season, don't you think? Again, available for £78.

Last but not least is this Wool and Fleece Style Wrap Over Coat. Another that I feel i'd certainly have to try on in store. The majority of my wardrobe is black and white, so i'm slowly adding some grey to it, daring I know! Another classy fit that can be thrown over something casual to jazz it up but look equally as beautiful over a smart evening outfit.

So which do you think I should snap up!? Which is your favourite? Let me know below!

Quote of the Week | #46


"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them" - Walt Disney
click the image for the soure*

I think our generation's biggest fear/mistake is not taking risks or having courage to follow through with things to achieve the things we want to do in life. It starts when you're in year nine and you need to choose your GCSE options which will essentially line you up for your A Level options which will set you up for University. 

I myself remember feeling incredibly pressured when I chose my GCSE options and i'm pretty sure most of the people around me felt the same. Once I got to my A Levels I was so confused by all the options I had, do I carry on with my A Levels and go off to University or do I step out in to the great big world of "work" and start having to do things like tax and pay out bills and rent?

In the last six years i've wanted to be and achieve so many things. Many of them I have, because I learnt to have faith and believed in myself and I had the courage to step out of the crowd and do what I wanted to do because I wanted to do it, not because society told me that I had to.

I guess what i'm trying to say here is unless it's something dangerous or life threatening, give it a shot, you'll never know unless you try. If you really want to study to be the best Doctor in your town, do it and put all your courage and might in to it and you will be the best Doctor you can possibly be. If you want to move to a different city to pursue your career in the West End, then do it! What's holding you back? Stop being scared into doing things that you don't want to do, just because society tells you have to do it to be normal.

Everyone has courage, sometimes it just takes us some time to find it within ourselves ♡ I hope you have a fantastic day and remember, keep on smiling ♡

Polyvore Style Board | #40


Quite a basic look for today, but perfect for this time of year! I've never been a fan of yellow but this year i've been eyeing up a large number of mustard yellow clothing pieces, including this beautiful large knit cardigan. It's from Desire Clothing and it's currently only £12, bargain. I love chunky cardi's/jumpers, they just make me feel extra cosy! 

I decided i'd team this cardigan up with a burgundy shade as I think they just work beautifully together, don't you? I've sort of built up an army of skater skirts and dresses now, they're just so flattering. This one in particular is from H'n'M and it's only £9.99. Pop some sheer black tights on underneath to keep your legs warm!

Chelsea boots are a staple every year and this year, just about everywhere is selling them! I actually bought some that look exactly the same as these Monki ones but they only cost £15. These Monki ones are probably better quality, £40, but they look exactly the same, promise! Boots in general go with every outfit so they're certainly a must have.

Backpack's do wonders for my back! I always seem to have so many things to carry around with me, i'm sure not all of them are 100% necessary but anyway, one shoulder bags really hurt my back. Backpacks even out the weight across my back and make it so much more comfortable. Plus, they look adorable! I think even a black backpack would have gone really well with this look, but I went for brown anyway because hey ho, why not?

Y'all know about my love/hate relationships with hats. I always throw them in style boards but then when it comes to ordering/buying one I always chicken out! I don't know, I just don't think they suit me but they look rockin' on everyone else! Sigh. This one is from Warehouse and it's available for £25.

Make up wise, I think a natural look with a nice autumnal lip shade would work great with this. This lip stick is from Lancome and it's in the shade Berry Noir. It's a deep shade but leaning more towards the pinky side of the spectrum so it's not too daring. All of the shades from Lancome's L'Absolu Rouge range are beautiful, deffo worth a look! 

So what do you think of this look? Would you rock it? Let me know!

A Rather Pricey Homeware Wishlist

Armchair | Sweetheart Lamp | Pink Paris Clock | Unicorn Pillow | Relax Pillow | I Love You Pillow | Hakuna Matata Bed Spread | Floral Soap Dispenser | Toothbrush Holder | Elephant Candle | 3 Piece Tea Set | Antique French Victorian Hand Mirror | Perfume Bottle

If money were no object aye? I've seriously overspent on my imaginary budget here. Altogether the items come to around £1,000. I don't need any of these items but I sure as hell want them!

We'll start with one of the most beautiful armchair's I've ever seen! I adore the print, it's quite out there but still subtle enough to fit in with a neutral themed living room/bedroom, adding a little bit of a chic pop! It'll set you back around £190 which isn't a bad price for an armchair, plus is adorable!

How perfect is this backstage sweetheart lamp? It reminds me of something they'd have backstage at Moulin Rouge. This is another stand out item that would really add some extra sass to your bedroom. It's no surprise that it's a Modcloth item, did you really expect a wishlist without one, and it's only £28! This is probably my favourite find on this wishlist and I think it's going to be a Christmas present from me.. to me! Sorry i'm not sorry. 

I visited Paris around a year and a half ago now and it's such a beautiful City and whenever I see anything plastered with Parisian streets and of course, the Eiffel Tower, I feel a strong urge to buy it, is that weird? Aside's from the fact it's pink, you can order it as large as 60"! I'm 64" in height so this clock would be nearly as tall as me, how epic would that look above your dinning table?! Admittedly £560 is a lot of money for a clock, but I did tell you that this was a pricey wishlist! 

The next item is ridiculously priced but it's freakin' epic! Hello, a water colour effect Unicorn Pillow?! Who wouldn't want one? Oh, just me? Okay. £150 is the grand total for this baby. So if anyone's feeling generous, you know what to do..

The second pillow is just something sweet I need to have propped on that pink armchair up there. Relax, you're home, just a little reminder that you should always have some wind down time once you get in from a long day at work. Plus, monochrome ♡ Still fairly expensive at £60.

I'm guessing you've figured that this third and final pillow isn't a cheap one either. It reads, "I love you everywhere and anywhere inside and outside and inside out. Top to bottom and bottom to top." Again I just think it's really sweet and mushy, 100% something i'd send as a twitter update if I was feeling lovey dovey. 

I found this bed spread/fleece on the same website as the armchair, wayfair.com. If you know me well, you'll know that I absolutely adore the Lion King. Being the monochrome lover that I am, I couldn't leave this out of a wishlist could I? Beside's, Santa could be reading.. P.S i've been very good and it's only £38.  

Another trend that i've loved for quite some time now is floral print and every now and then I do consider scrapping my plans for a nautical themed bathroom and re doing it all in floral prints. But then I remember how hard it was for me to convince Nolan that we should re decorate our bathroom in the first place. But how glamouros is this liquid soap dispenser(£20)? I need to see if I can find the mathcing toothbrush holder to store my make up brushes in, how sweet would that look on your dressing table? Speaking of Toothbrush holders, this one is super cute isn't it? I think this would be a really cute way to remind your kids the they need to brush their pearly white's, don't you think?

£109 for a candle? Sometime's I wonder how i'm not totally broke, 100% of the time. Who else even looks at these things? Well done Maisie! 

I've wanted a proper little tea set for so long now. Not to use, just to have on the side in the Kitchen for decoration. This 3 piece from Royal Albert is such a gorgeous looking set. As much as I say i'd like to have it as more of an ornament, for £130, i'd be to scared of the cat's knocking it off the table, so if I did make a sneaky purchase, i'd probably have to live it's life hidden away in a cupboard. 

Another item that i've wanted for years and years is a hand mirror and I recently found this one on Etsy and it's currently on sale for just £38. Certainly another piece to pop on the dressing table and show your mates when they pop over. 

I think perfume bottle's are so beautiful. Think about how much work and effort has gone into designing each and every bottle. I keep all of my perfume bottles, never do I throw them away. I'm now buying a shelf to display them all on and I'd like to add this one to the collection. 

So there's my home ware wishlist for this month! What are you currently lusting over? Let me know below!
