Sometimes I love ya, sometimes you make me blue

Leather heeled ankle boots - Topshop (similar)
Black gem statement ring - Topshop (similar)

You can tell these jeans are super skinny- they look like a second skin but I'd rather they be tight then give me baggy knees! The end of November means the faux fur coats are in rotation in a bid to try and not freeze to death. The temperature really seems to have dropped eh? I'm not looking forward to snow arriving and disrupting my life. I'm not a fan of the white stuff.  I'll never for the life of me understand why the public transport system comes to a standstill. You'd think after all these years we'd learn to be better equipped! I've had a few red lowlights put through my hair as a bit of a change. You might be able to notice!

I'm trying to make the most out of my final few weeks working in London as my company is relocating to North Essex. It's right at the other end of the county to where I live so my commute will double but I'm seeing it as a new challenge to meet head on. New surroundings and a new place to explore will be fun! It'll be sad as i'll have to say no to the majority of blogging events as I won't make it back in time to the city. Meeting other bloggers and having a sneak peak at new collections is one of my favourite things about the community. My social life will take a bit of a battering but maybe my bank account will be a lot more healthy because of it!


  1. I love that coat, you've reminded me I think I have some similar x
