PATCHOULI


Hat- TOPSHOP/ Grey Woollen Jumper- TOPSHOP/ Black Culotte Playsuit- TOPSHOP/ Bag- ACCESSORIZE/ Black Boots- NEXT/ Jacket- CHARITY SHOP

Hey guys back with another Autumn look, this time I have layered it up. I headed into the Topshop Sale and got this lovely Black Playsuit with bobbly bits along the trim of the collar. It was only £20 down from £35 so I had to buy it, recently its been getting colder and I've started to layer my Clothes. I want to remain stylish but at the same time practical and warm! Also I have noticed recently that I have ditched any tight fitting Clothes and uncomfortable fabrics for Wools and gentle Cotton blends. I've stopped tanning now and embraced my Vampy coloured skin, its hard to accept it everyday when its considered more 'healthier' to have a glow, especially the message that's always shown in the media. Anyways I have layered the playsuit over the Turtle Neck Jumper which is also new, I then added a belt to enhance the silhouette of the outfit. I really loved the fact this playsuit was in a Culotte style, briefly skimming my ankles, I've been a pair for a while, but always thought it was a Summer trend. There we have it another warm, practical and stylish outfit for AW15, take whatever you want from it but I love the fact I've combined the 70s Trend with a touch of Witchy vibes. It's quite refreshing posting outfits that I actually wear to Uni now, it only takes 20 mins to take the outfit Photos only taking a selected few so I don't make it time consuming alongside my dissertation I am meant to be doing. Anyway hope your all excited for Halloween as much as I am.

Lots of love,

I'M BACK


Floppy Hat- TOPSHOP/ Grey Turtle Neck Jumper- HM/ Added black ribbon bow/ Lace Dress- OASAP/ Bag- ACCESSORISE/ Black Boots- NEXT/ Tights- TESCO

Hey guys I'm back with an Autumn look recently I have been wearing a lot of Black and Dark Purples, basically channelling some Witchy Vibes. I've even had comments shouted at on the streets that I look like a 'Witch' or that I'm 'Fashionable' which is something I just tend to laugh off now. I have come to the point where I don't care what I wear anymore now I have my style mojo back. It disappeared over the Summer as I indulged in a crazy Gym Lifestyle. However, even though I enjoyed wearing tan everyday and probably being the healthiest/strongest I've ever been I can admit I wasn't entirely happy. I noticed myself being quite controlled by what I ate and I knew it wasn't enjoying it as it started to become a chore to eat as much protein as I needed and filling my body with food even when I wasn't really hungry. I mean that's not normal right? Just so I can remain lean... It did work but I love cake, chocolate, crisps just junk food. Its so great to indulge whilst your young and don't gain weight. I will go back to the gym soon and try to attend about three days a week but I honestly couldn't go everyday of the week it was too tiring on my body. I proved to myself I can do anything I put my mind to, but my true self loves food and thats ok. 
I was also very curious about the gym lifestyle I saw on Instagram and I wanted to experiment with my own identity to see if I could step into their shoes for a couple of months. 

At the end of the day I was born to dress weirdly, to enjoy fashion and to be creative. Thats who I am and I content to know that now. It takes time but at the age of twenty three the feeling of being self assured of your identity is such a great feeling. So here we are a bit of a witchy outfit for the month of Halloween. I love October so much and I want to be able to balance outfit posts along with my dissertation. I took these photos today in town, I can say I was so blinking nervous to take out my tripod and pose in front of the camera. I haven't blogged in such a long time and I actually enjoyed it a lot. I had many stares and questions but that makes it twice as fun to perform on the streets in town, its inspiring to change the scenery that people look at everyday.
With this outfit I layered over a 70s laced dress on top of a grey turtle neck, the dress was quite low cut and I had never felt comfortable wearing it. Its also very short, so I chucked on a pair of thick warm tights and shorts underneath and it created such an interesting style. 
Hope you guys are all ok and still out there! I haven't left the blogging world yet, in fact I am studying it very closely for my dissertation.


Lots of love,

Charlotte

XMAS LUSH EVENT SWANSEA

 Hey guys, so last Friday I had such a busy day, I went to Uni and then afterwards rushed to get ready to attend a Lush Event in Swansea.  I took my housemate and we both ran over. I couldn't go to the Christmas one last month so I attended this one. We were about half an hour late but they still kindly let us in. We had a few 'Christingle Shots' and some 'Mocktails' (Non-Alcoholic of course haha) which were so yummy! We quickly had a look around at the Christmas products. I love attending Lush's Christmas Events they are always the best! This was the best time to shop for yourself as well so I spent a bit of money I earned through my blog on some Lush Products. I needed a good pampering session after the first week of third year in uni. The work load is crazy this year so I won't be blogging as much sorry guys. So here is what I bought from Lush;
My favourite Deodorant Bar, Aromaco, Grease Lighting which is a spot treatment that I seem to be blending in with my moisturiser at night and in my primer when I put my foundation on, its a god send! The Olive Branch shower gel, because I am addicted to the smell. A lovely lip balm and lip scrub for the Autumn Months its important to moisturise those lips that can become chapped in the cold weather. Mask of Magnaminty which I made all of my housemates try and they loved it, then Lush gave us a few freebies, which were a Cranberry Face Mask, it smelt very Christmassy. They also gave us Apandapand Soap which smells lovely. 
Then afterwards I took my housemates out for lovely stroll around the City to see the PurpleFlagWeekend which was basically the place lit up in purple but it was so magical.

Lots of love,

Charlotte
