Autumn Park Times...

Friday was finally a good day... But bloody cold!

Recently it certainly felt more winter than autumn - I was wrapped up to the gills in my big fury coat, scarf - but I took it all off for a wee pose to show off my outfit for my wonderful readers!

From Left: Me and Robert, Freeeeezing cold, OOTD, NOTD...
Well, Friday (obviously) was my last day at uni of the week and I woke up not-late - for once. So I had time to drag the straighteners through my hair to add more defining curls - but this took more time than anticipated and unfortunately due to the rush I hadn't had time to check the weather and simply went for a simple skirt based outfit. So when I'd originally stepped outside I was near enough blown away by the bitter cold that simple made my legs turn purple under my tights - but luckily I had time to grab my coat and scarf and made it in the nick of time - well the nick of time, after  I'd got my usual cup of tea first!

After an awesome lecture - I didn't fall asleep in - Robert walked to meet me and we decided to stroll through the park to walk into town before my dreaded flu jab - eeek - yes, it was flu jab day, urgh!

But whilst in the park I stopped to take a few photo's of outfit and my winter inspired nails!

Outfit: I took some of my own advice and went for a jersey pencil skirt I purchased from H&M, matched with my very girly Primark unicorn cropped tie-top. But as usual paired it with my favourite Topshop blazer and a pair of fluffy socks and my fluffy ankle boots, to keep away the cold. Now, I'm all for Ugg boots as I do very much love them, but when you can buy some fluffy boots, just as good for a fraction of the price for £12.50 at Tesco's - I say 'go for it!'  - These were my lifesavers of the day as cold feet = unhappy bunny...

From Left: Rimmel London: Lasting Finish, 704 Sweet as Sugar.
Models Own: Freak Out! 138, Jack Frost 146 &
Southern Lights 148
Nails: My nails took a winter turn as I was inspired by the new chunky glitter ranger from Model's Own - I'd always liked glitter nail varnish - but never really liked the standard glitter ball looking glitter varnishes that you could always get - now, I'd always fancied the MUA Constellation glitters - but urgh, every time I go to buy them, they're always sold out! So I turned my sights to my wanting of a winter look for my nails and Models Own's glitter colours were fantastic for this - with a base of Rimmels Lasting Finish Sweet as Sugar 704... As I love their colours! As for the Model's Own Glitters I went for Freak Out!, Jack Frost and Southern Lights -In honour of my more Southern University - I do plan to purchase the Northern Lights for my next (hopefully soon) trip back to Cumbria...

But my dallying through the park, unfortunately  didn't make me miss my flu jab and I arrived early for it and suffered the excruciating pain that was the monster nurse who jabbed my arm - ok I'm exaggerating (but does that surprise you?!) as frankly I'm terrified of needles and even my yearly flu jab is no exception to this general rule!

So, yes, I have spent the rest of the night feeling sorry for myself and having a well needed 2 and half hour nap! Now, as my need for sleep is fulfilled and a bubbly bath finished being on the books it's time to start thinking up my Halloween outfit - as yes, I've left it a bit late this year!

What do you all think of my outfit and nail poses in the park?

  9. You look very cosy and two of you make such a lovely couple!
    By the way, do you know that flu jabs are pretty much pointless because they only protect you from the strains from previous years and since the virus is clever enough to change annually (if not more often) than the jab won't protect you from that one. Better way to keep your immune system strong by eating really well, with lots of vitamins (veggies and fruits), so the body will be strong enough to deal with any viruses (because, in reality, it can)

    Have a lovely weekend!
