//AW17 Primark wishlist//

Hello! I don’t know about you but I always love autumn/winter fashion and feel the urge to go ot on a huge spending spree and update my wardorbe. However as I need to save for a laptop, I decided I do a bit of online browsing instead and create a wishlist of Primark AW17 clothes and homeware for you!

(Obviously Primark can’t have all of their huge range of products up on their website so I have a limitted choice, but there’s bound to be more in store that I’d love to buy too haha).

Tops

1

Feather blouse – £7

I absolutely love this blouse and I think it looks very autumnal and can be worn casually or as smart ware, which is great!

2

Grey cardigan – £15

Primark really have gone to town with the cardigans this year. When I last went into a store, there were whole walls covered with them. I think they’d be so nice just to throw on when you’re having a lazy day. I’m not sure what colour I’d go for but I do quite like this grey one.

3

2 in 1 Jumper – £15

I really love this trend – maybe because I love shirts?? Either way I think these jumper/shirt combos look really cool and I’d love to own one.

Bottoms

4Bergundy cord skirt  -£8

Bergundy is definitely in this season and I’ve already jumped on the bandwagon and bought a bergundy skater skirt. However I really love this cord skirt but when I tried it on in store the shape didn’t really suit me, but I still like it so I thought I’d include it anyway.

5

Houndstooth wrap mini skirt – £10

Again I don’t know if I could pull off the shape, but the pattern is gorgeous and i’m really into monochrome prints at the moment!

Shoes

6Grey Chelsea Boot – £8

I saw these instore and they had a variety of different colours including these grey ones. I really liked the grey but they had a gorgeous olive green pair that I really liked! And they’re such good value too!

Homeware

7

Harry Potter Hedwig cushion – £8

I mean it’s Hedwig??? Enough said.

8

40 Firefly Copper Fairylights – £2.50

You can never have too many fairy lights, and they really do make your room 1000x cosier.

I’m sure there are about 50000 other things I could include on my AW17 Primark wishlist, but I’ll leave it there for now. Hopefully I’ll be able to head down there soon and maybe purchase a few of these items!

What fashion trends are you loving this season? Would you put any of these on your wishlist? Let me know below!

//The world through an autumnal lens//

Hello! As it’s half term, I’ve had a lot more free time within which I’ve rediscovered my love of photography. I’ve taped up my broken digital camera so it’s now semi-usable and have enjoyed being able to take some very autumn-y photos that I thought I’d share here. 🙂

I love experimenting with photography, so I’m really pleased with the way these turned out, especially the effect of the light through the leaves and shifting the focal point! Hope you’re enjoying the autumnal weather too. 🙂

//Autumn favourites//

Hello! Today I’d like to talk about some of the things I’ve been loving so far this autumn. It’s been a long tine since I last wrote here, so I’m going to use this post to sort-of bring you up to speed with some of the things I’ve been up to lately as well.

Autumn so far has been both uneventful and eventful. I mean, nothing much exciting has really happened – although I have celebrated a few friends birthdays, gone on a few shopping trips and visited my favourite art gallery – but otherwise I’ve pretty much been studying constantly. Year 13 has certainly been more intense than I was expecting, the workload is so impossibly huge that I barely have time to work on the two pieces of independent coursework and my university personal statement that need to be done by Januray, let alone blogging! On top of all that, I was suffering with a nasty cold for two weeks, and last week my phone broke so it’s been shipped off to France where I’ll probably never see it again.. for repairs, and whilst I’m writing this, our wifi at home haa gone down so who know’s when I’ll get to publish it!

Anyway, that’s enough rambling for now and I should really start to write about my autumn favourites, which I’m excited to share with you! Autumn is my favourite season, and I’m loving it even more than usual this year, which is great!

Fashion
I’ve been really getting into fashion this autumn. I may not be the most fashionable person, but I really enjoy putting autumnal outfits together, especially featuring this top and skirt that I bought recently (in the sales of course!) (Sorry for the bad photography)

Lemon

This is a bit strange, but I’ve been drinking lemon squash a lot recently, and I really love the taste! Although citrus fruits are more summery, my dad bought some lemon squash when we both had colds in a bid to help our sore throats, and I’ve carried on drinking it since – it’s so refreshing.

Geography!

Yep, you heard correctly. The girl who was saying just a few months ago how much she had fallen out of love with geography has included it on a favourites list…Basically, we’re studying global superpowers at the moment, and it’s so interesting from a political and historical perspective, and something I want to explore more when I study politics at uni next year. I’m so glad I’ve fallen back in love it, because gsography is so demanding and if you’re lacking enthusiasm, it can be a real uphill battle. The coursework is another question, but so far I’m loving the lessons enough to spend time making pretty notes!

(N.B. this was written before I had the end of topic test on Tuesday which was HORRIBLE)

Candles!

Of course candles are an autumn essential, but in particular I have been using an apple and cinamon candle (which I conveniently forgot to photograph) a lot that my friend got me for Christmas last year. It’s not a yankee candle, but the scent is so powerful and warming.

Make-up Revolution

I bought the Make-Up Revolution New-trals vs Neutrals pallet in August because I loved the pink and orange shades in it, and have never had a proper eyeshadow pallet so I decided to treat myself. I’ve been using it so much over the autumn, as it has some really deep bergundys and oranges that give off an autumn vibe. Although I have nothing really to compare this pallet too, I am very impressed with it as to me the colours seem very pigmented and apply well, and there is a great range of matte and shimmer-y shades. 10/10 would recommend.

ITV Victoria

Ahh! The series finale was on Sunday, but I definitely loved this series a whole lot more than last series. I got so attatched to some of the characters, and to keep this spoiler-free, let’s just say the plot took some interesting turns!

Absolute 80s radio

Music-wise, there haven’t been any particular artists that I’ve really been into, I guess other than HAIM who I listened to a lot last month. That’s because I’ve rediscovered my love of 80s music, so spend most of my music-listening time tuning into Absolute 80s or playing some of my parents records.

Well, I think that’s all I can think of for now, which is good because this post is alreasy quite long. I’ve got plenty of ideas for upcoming posts so hopefully over half term next week I’ll more time to write them. Goodbye for now!
