I'm in a bit of a rut with these Wednesday Wants at the moment. I keep looking straight to Topshop for my wishlist, which just goes to show how crazy their prices have gotten! Whereas once upon a time, I'd be more than happy to step through the shiny doors of Topshop and leave with a few bags of goodies, I'm now reluctant to even look in-store. Hello online browsing ;)

The Autumn is already in full swing. My absolute favourite season; I love to go for walks when it's cold but not too cold, and when it starts to get dark that tiny bit earlier. I get even more excited when the leaves start falling, and the sky starts getting the orangey tints in during the sunset. However, one minor setback: how to embark on these ever-so-idealistic Autumn walks without a suitable coat?! A coat is the one thing I will splurge on for this season, and for good reason. So I present to you:


In other news... I'm loving Eyeko's Extra Glow cream. I seriously must remember to wash my hands after using it, as I'm transferring the glow and sparkles to everything I touch, laptop keyboard included! I also polka-dotted my nails last night! Wearing Eyeko's Posh polish as a base, with Collection 2000 black polish for the dots! Posh seems to be a great dupe for Chanel's Particuliere polish, and at £3.50 is very worth it in my eyes! It's another Eyeko one-coater, although I used two just for an even more opaque base on which to polka dot ;)



Right, well I'm off to pack the rest of things away - jewellery packing is a nightmare! - sort the laundry, some dinner and then hoover the house! Fun fun fun! Hopefully I'll get my Internet set up as soon as possible tomorrow, although it'll probably be the last thing on mind. Right now my main concern is not bringing so much useless junk to the flat with me ;)

    sarah: they've become so expensive, i'm really reluctant to even step foot in there! and its not as if the quality's got better, most of my current topshop pieces are fraying already! thank you lovely!

    alana: thank you! i'm planning on having a massive sleep once i'm moved in haha! unpacking can happen sometime next week to be quite honest!

    sarah/anon: thank you sweet! (:

    half dressed: thanks lovely! i'm debating whether or not to leopardise them a la gemfatale, but have no idea what colour to add to leopardise!

  13. Ooooh, those coats are lovely. I am already thinking about my new winter coat but I have a crazy specific idea of what I want which means I'll probably never find it! Love your duffel/parka, it looks so cosy!

    I had a parka I lived in at uni, it was Voodoo Dolls and had a pink lining and a massive hood. I loved it, it was so cosy during my surfer chick phase! x

    mi: aw thank you lovely! i always have trouble finding coats because i'm so short, most coats drown me! i can't wait for it to get cold so i can wear this all the time! thanks (: i kept having little spasms and ruining the dots haha! xxx

  18. Love the coat. My favourite is definately the khaki Topshop, very military!

    Totally agree about the prices in Topshop they've become silly and it puts me off going in because I know I'm not going to be able to justify spending that much money.

  19. jennifer and sherry: thanks for the sweet comment! aah the faux fur one? im still tempted, but holding out for the perfect charity shop find, as there are plenty in charity stores! i love your blog too girls!

    porcelain complexion: thank you! mm i know! and its faux fur which is good too! im still looking for the perfect affordable faux fur coat!

    evz: they didn't have the khaki in my local store ): but i already have a khaki jacket, so im not bothered! ahh i know! coats are a different thing though, because topshop coats actually last and are well worth the extra pennies!
