I purchased this jacket earlier this Spring and being Spring I never fully got to 'enjoy' it in all it's faux-fur glory. Despite this I have to admit buying winter coats in earlier spring works wonders on your purse as I believe this was under £30 reduced. Ever since the weather has turned into full-on winter mode this coat has come into its own, its basically becoming apart of me-kinda like a duvet. I think price per wear has turned into > 0.0000001p.

I've been recently wearing a lot of these t-shirt style dresses paired with plaid shirts and oversized knits, as besides from being one of the comfiest outfits out, they are also have 90s grunge aesthetic written all over them. I picked up this one months ago from Missguided and immediately fell for its Harley Davidson-esque print and grey marl fabric- which makes a subtle change to the norm of black. Paired with a few simple accessories including a must-have choker from one of my favourite Etsy stores. I have to admit this is kinda my go-to "lazy" uni-outfit for those early morning lectures, when my brain hasn't woken up yet.

Last month I headed over to Debenhams (Oxford St.) for the launch of the highly anticipated (and longly awaited) Kat Von D Beauty line. After first coming across the range both from fellow beauty blogs and at the mothership herself, Sephora. I kinda had a vague idea of the sort of products that I wanted to trial and purchase. After using and reviewing her iconic "Tattoo Eyeliner" (see the post here) I knew from how amazing that product was that the standard was pretty high for the others.
With that being said I came away with the Liquid Lipstick in "Bow n Arrow" which I simply adore, and has become a staple in my everyday makeup routine. As a long-time devotee of the classic nude (90s inspired) lip, "Bow n Arrow" is a perfect shade for achieving this as it's noticeable enough to look like your wearing lipstick but still looks natural. It is also extremely long-lasting when applied in layers, by blotting in-between to create a lip stain effect. In fact I'm currently eyeing up other shades as we speak as there's nothing more satisfying than falling in love with a product that ticks all of your "make-up boxes".

Now that the weather has turned a bit colder and the nights are suddenly drawing in, I feel as though it's the time of year where you can start to experiment with layering different pieces. One of my favourite ways to layer tops is by pairing slightly oversized printed t-shirts-whether thats band tees or my beloved The Mountain tees, is with a roll neck jumper. As there is something so 90s about the combination almost as though I'm channeling my inner skater chick-all I need is to dust off my skate boarding skills. To keep with the 90s theme I decided to pair the outfit with my classic style DM's and a pale wash distressed denim jacket to complete the look.
