PUMPKIN CARVING & HALLOWEEN TAG WITH DOUG (VIDEO)

It's almost Halloween, so it was only right that Douglas and I carved some pumpkins and of course, we filmed it for you to have a little giggle along with us.

DIY PUMPKIN DECORATING IDEAS (VIDEO)


I'd be lying if I said I enjoyed pumpkin carving. It always seems like a great idea until you're ten minutes in, covered in pumpkin pulp and seeds, to then get annoyed because the lid falls through and the what you thought was going to be a masterpiece, turns into the same old mess you make every year. So, I thought I'd share some pumpkin decorating ideas you can do instead of carving for those of you who share the same frustration as I do.

MINI ASOS HAUL

Placing orders through ASOS is starting to become a weekly habit of mine. Even if I just purchase one item for under a tenner, it happens and it's too easy now I have the app on my phone alongside unlimited free next day delivery. If you're out of education, you probably miss qualifying for student discount, like myself but another way to get discounts on ASOS is through Codesium here. So, today when my parcel was delivered (may I add, the delivery man now knows my surname off by heart.. slightly embarrassing) I thought I'd share my purchases with you as I'm really happy with them.

WHAT'S IN MY BAG + MINI GAP HAUL (VIDEO)

I couldn't remember the last time I filmed a what's in my bag video, so thought it was about time I did an updated version and let's face it, we're all a bit of a nosey bunch. Who doesn't like having a peak through other people bags, houses and makeup collections? With consent, of course. I happened to have done a spot of shopping in Gap the day I filmed this, so you have both a tag and a haul in one, to (hopefully) enjoy.

WEEK IN PHOTOS NO.85

It's been a good week, even if I have had PMS for most of it. TMI? Sorry. On another note I loved dressing up for the Cosmopolitan blog awards as it's a rare occurrence for me (I'm the type to just go out in what I feel like wearing that day, smart or casual) so it was nice to feel a bit special for once. I have also been spending these cold mornings tucked away in my flat in a bundle of blankets, thick socks, lighting scented candles and sipping coffee from my new favourite mug whist editing, blogging and all that jazz, feeling ever so autumnal. I love it.

CASUAL OOTD (VIDEO)

I get a lot of requests to film a week in outfits which I'm going to try doing as soon as possible but until then, here is one of my day-to-day type of outfits. I'd say layering and skinny jeans are without a doubt my go-to comfy/casual outfit choice.

Every year I purchase a new pair of gloves and this year, I have my heart set on these adorable, striped cat mittens. Who said you can't have a bit of fun when you're wrapping up warm to face the cold?

MINI HOMEWARE HAUL (VIDEO)

I seem to get more pleasure from buying new bits and bobs for my flat than I do clothing nowadays. I popped into one of my favourites local shops for adorable yet affordable homeware the other week and as usual, I came out with more items than I have planned to get. Naturally I filmed a little haul.

WEEK IN PHOTOS NO.84

The past couple of weeks have been full of surprises, new ventures and the arrival of a new season which I have to say, is getting me more and more excited about this festive season. Things have also kicked off at work; it's barely Halloween let alone Christmas and the new festive goodies at Lush have been flying out the shop. Oh, I'm also covered in glitter 24/7 and I'll never complain about Sunnyside bubble bar ever again (any Lushies reading this should understand).

HUGE FESTIVE LUSH HAUL • HALLOWEEN & CHRISTMAS '14 (VIDEO)

I'm a huge fan of Lush both as a consumer and employee so as soon as I knew the Halloween and Christmas products were being released the morning of October 3rd, I made a note in my diary to head in first thing in the morning, buy almost everything, film a haul and get the video edited and uploaded as soon as possible so I could be one of the first to reveal all the amazing new goodies. A little lame I must admit but I hope you enjoy the outcome of my craziness.

CHECKED WOOLLEN COAT • PICK OF THE WEEK

fluffy wool checked coat from topshop, £78 (buy here)

It's officially autumn, there is no doubt about it and do you know how I know this? Well, I'm sat here with damp jeans (probably the worst thing next to damp socks) as I've spent most of the day running around with my jacket on my head because I forgot my umbrella the one day the skies decide to chuck it down. Anyway, now it's autumn it is time to invest in some warmer clothing. My checked scarf obsession seems to have evolved into an obsession for checked coats. Grey, Brown, Camel, Burgundy or Navy, I just can't get enough of them.

SEND IN YOUR STYLE NO.19

outfit: jumper and hat: sportsgirl • jeans: cheap monday • boots: windsor smith • sunglasses: quay eyeware

Jorja, 16 from Australia

"I use fashion as a way to express myself and be noticed in a crowd. I'm quite a shy person if I don't know you, so by wearing a bold outfit or accessory, I can make a statement. I live for online shopping as I am in a small town with not many clothing shops - it's so easy and allows you to find unique items that others will not have. I am also a bit of an Instagram addict, sharing my latest outfits and purchases with my followers. I have just started a blog and I hope it leads to something great."
