Just a quick outfit today showcasing this pink fluffy (candy floss-like) coat that has been my go-to 'blanket' of choice as of late. I can't believe it has been a week since my last post, but taking week out has also made me assess the direction that I want to take 'Style Peaches'.  To fill you in I have basically spent the past week working on new content ideas, ways to improve my photography skills and the possibility of a theme re-design (something user-friendly but clean and minimal looking) to inject a new lease of life to my biggest love. With the new year on the horizon there really is no better time to put these 'ideas' into action and see how they can unravel and grow. I honestly can't wait to share them with you. Anyway I hope you all have a wonderful christmas filled with "food-comas" and laughter! x

With new shoe purchases becoming a common theme recently on the blog (I feel a new addiction coming on) I thought I might share with you the latest pair to grace my feet from Doc Martens. I like to call them the 'mermaid shoes', as they have that colour changing quality where you never quite know the exact shade of them giving them that 'mermaid' like quality. I first spotted them whilst on a spontaneous browse on the DM site and that's when the "obsession" began. It was one of those moments where I couldn't stop dreaming up outfits to pair them with, sad I know. So when I went in to a store to try them (and drool over them in real life) they needed to be mine. The fact that they sold out online but happened to have in stock the last pair in my size I took as a sign of fate, and immediately snapped them up. Plus they do 10% discount for students *SCORE*-how could I resist?

Owning a pair of 'jelly shoes' have been one of those items which has been top of my wish list ever since the 'toddler' trend re-entered my life. So you could only imagine my delight when I came across this sparkly pair in the bargain section of Primark. As a self-confessed magpie I was instantly drawn to their rose gold shimmer, yet when I went to see how much they were my eyes widen even more.  They were only £1. I'm still in shock that they were so cheap and better yet they had my size, because lets be honest there is nothing worse than pair of shoes that you've fallen in love with have sold out of your size. Who knows what (glittery) hidden gems I will lay my hands on next?!

Pleats & Plaits

If there's one word to describe how I felt when sporting this outfit it would be 'Ranch-Cowgirl'-due to the hat and plaits combination. It also probably didn't help that my sister was singing country western songs whilst taking these photos-thanks sis. Western aside with my recent go-to a.k.a black turtle neck jumper (can't get enough!) in tow I decided to take inspiration from my Hello Kitty backpack (obviously) by pairing it with a similar coloured pleated skirt, I recently inherited. There's something about wearing a full pleated skirt that I adore, from the retro influence to the way it flows whilst you walk-cue the dramatic entrances. What could once be seen as a "granny" piece of clothing, can soon be banished with the help of an oversized faux-fur coat and a Hello Kitty pack back (of course).

First off I apologise for suddenly "dropping off the universe" for nearly two weeks-unexpectedly, but these past weeks have been incredibly busy filled with uni work etc=little blogging time :( However that being said I've had a bit of time to catch up on blogging activities queue outfit photo taking, blog typing and email replying.
So what has changed in these past two weeks?! Well my hair is slowly fading back to blonde...bye bye mermaid locks, although I think I've eyed up my next shade of 'My Little Pony' hair, so watch this space. Talking of space I've also become OBSESSED with 'Space Grunge' recently, in fact I've dedicated a pin board to it, as I'm truly inspired by everything from the clothes to the hair/make-up.
I even feel as though I am slowly turning my wardrobe into pastel rainbow coloured, space gear. So if I start looking as though I've just hopped off a space craft anytime soon, don't blame me. To be honest it was only a matter of time...

When the leaves start to turn shades of burnt amber and scatter the pathways-with that added chill in the air, you soon come to realise that the "layering-season" (*ahem* autumn) has made its long awaited arrival. With layering top on my list, when it comes to planning outfits as of late, there is nothing like feeling *cosy* under, oversized jumpers and cardigans. This blanket cape, from BritFash, is perfect for just that as you literally 'throw' it over any ol' outfit for that added autumn touch. I am obsessed with the aztec print as it embodies that whole effortless, boho vibe that I love to channel every so often. In addition to becoming a statement piece in itself, as this trend-worthy coat can instantly add something unexpected, to the most basic outfits.

The Beauty Review: Max Factor "Masterpiece Transform" Mascara & "Excess Shimmer" Eyeshadows

When it comes to high-street/drugstore mascara brands, you really can't beat the quality and value of Max Factor. I'm just obsessed with them! The latest offering from the brand is called the "Masterpiece Transform" and promises to offer maximum impact lashes, in just one coat. It does this through its' unique wand with rows of rotating bristles capturing and coating every lash-clump free. It really does give that wow effect. Besides from being extremely easy and quick to apply, in order to achieve dramatic lashes, the formula also stays put all day. I always find this to be the one 'downfall' when it comes to non-waterproof mascaras, however every one I've tried from Max Factor (non-waterproof formulas), so far, has had incredible staying power and doesn't flake off during the day. It is safe to say that this product has undoubtedly made its way into my everyday make up bag.

Another new addition to the 'Max Factor family' is these metallic, creamy eyeshadows. Now these shadows are seriously pigmented, in fact I've never come across a drug-store product like it in formula. Needing only just one sweep across your eyes for a maximum impact colour (just take a look at the swatches), due to their creamy consistency, I find them extremely easy to blend and often see myself mixing shades to create my own unique 'look'. My favourites from the bunch are definitely "copper" and "bronze" because as well as making my blue eyes 'pop', their rich colour screams luxury and adds a touch of drama to your eyes. They also make the perfect accompaniment for a party make-up look or even a festive 'do, especially with the season fast upon us. For me it is like getting the long-lasting wear and quality of a high-end product, with a small £7.99 price tag to pay-a must in my books

Thierry Mugler #AngelAddiction

Images Sourced from [1], [2], Personal Instagram & Tumblr Pages
The final phase of the Thierry Mugler campaign (re-cap on the first part here) is called #AngelAddiction which is based on the concept of a very addictive universe of "Angel". The fragrance can also take you on imaginary journeys and sensual delights, through creating a feeling of magic between the Mugler woman and the scent. So with the campaign in mind, I thought I'd share some of my most cherished addictions, through a mood board. Ranging from the past, present and future, as well as some of my dreams.

When I think of past addictions, glitter is funnily enough one of the first things that comes to mind. From thinking back I definitely had my fair share of experimental "phases" (dark/gothic phase included). As well as having a "glitter-eyeliner moment" when all I would wear was some shade of glitter on ones' face. I was addicted to the stuff... Remember those silver glitter lipsticks you would find in those kids make-up sets? I owned a fair few, and truth be told that lipstick played a huge part in creating my "glittery look".  

Another past addiction was "My Little Pony", which I think has contributed to my latest "addiction" of pastel, coloured hair. My obsession with immersing myself into a magical universe, playing dress-up, was one that stemmed from getting lost in the world of My Little Pony and Disney Princess characters. Mumma Peaches would often recall me dressing up in Disney Princess costumes, when I was little, often just to go shopping or to the park-with tiara and plastic, fluffy heels in tow.

As previously mentioned, and some of you might of noticed, I am ADDICTED to pastel coloured hair! Hence the recent hair re-vamp into a "mermaid creation". There's something surreal about the idea of having hair the shades of candy floss and mythical creatures. In fact a lilac/pink shade is definitely next on list of colours to try, hence why I am looking at My Little Pony for inspiration.

Future dreams consist of living in the LA sunshine, as ever since I visited the place I've dreamt about it daily. Obviously filled with a house full of pugs and exotic short hair cats-the cutest animals EVER! Because sometimes happiness can be found by filling your house with ridiculously cute animals, that you're addicted to one day owning...

Alongside the campaign Thierry Mugler want to find out what your #AngelAddictions are, by sharing them with the hashtag on your social media pages as they would love to know!

Ever since coming across photos of the latest 'space-grunge' street style trend, I've been obsessed with owning intergalactic inspired clothing ever since. I even created a whole pinterest mood board dedicated to the trend here. So when the release of the new "Distant Galaxies" collection by Yumi Direct  popped into by inbox it was like the stars a joined, and my fashion prayers of owning something space-age came true. *Hallelujah* This mac, from the collection, was the one piece that instantly caught my eye with it's' striking colour and metallic fabric, to the unicorn (yes unicorn) patterned lining. After all it has become the perfect accompaniment for this warm, rainy in-between (is it autumn??) Weather we've been experiencing, as of late. As well as fast becoming a staple in my uni wardrobe as of late, plus what better way to accompany my (now) pale turquoise hair than a bold, metallic blue jacket.

Be sure to check out Yumi Direct "Distant Galaxies" collection here, for space inspired delights.
