Outfit: Topshop Colour-Block Cardigan

I spotted this cardigan in my local Toppers the other day and the colour way was just perfect. I don't usually like 'colour block' items but this really works for me. The combination of grey and camel with a hint of cream really compliments whats in my wardrobe at the moment so it was fate really (or I'd like to think so). If you're thinking of buying it then I would advise to go down a size, I usually take a 10 in Topshop but this is quite oversized even for an 8 but it fits just how I'd like it to.

Outfit: Nike Thea's & Duster Coat

Topshop Duster Jacket / Missguided Crop Knit* / ASOS Jeans / Nike Thea's / H&M Bag 

Digging out some old favourites today, I like to show new bits on my blog but its also good to revisit those pieces you wear on the regular but don't necessarily photograph. This topshop longline duster has been one of my best purchases EVER. I've had so many wears out of it that its become such a staple in my wardrobe. I don't actually know what I did before duster coats were a thing?! I've been pushing my beloved Thea's to the side in favour for my Stans recently but I thought I'd dig them back out, I'm such a trainer lover at the moment. Yes I know a crop in winter but it is knitted and also I think these jeans look weird with long jumpers/tops! I never thought I'd say it (as I love winter) but roll on Spring!

Outfit: Grey On Grey & A Sleeveless Zara Knit

Zara Cream Knit / H&M Grey V Neck Knit (similar) / River Island Trousers (via ASOS) / Adidas Stan Smiths  (dreamy cracked leather version I need) / Moschino Bag

Hello! I (well, Charlie) took a few impromptu snaps for me after lunch today and thought I may as well share as I was just feeling my outfit you know haha. I'm loving grey on grey at the minute and these River Island trousers are a dream. I find trousers so hard to fit, especially to accommodate my smaller waist and big butt. I find RI always comes up the best for me so I tend to stick to them. I picked up this cream sleeveless knit in the Zara sale, I really wanted it when it was full price but couldn't justify it, so obvs when it went to half off I HAD to have it. Typically now its gone even cheaper but hey ho. Still living in my Stans too, so so comfy. I think the zebra style I'm wearing has sold out but I've linked to a beaut pair in cracked leather which are next on my hit list. I can't wait until its at least 15 degrees though so I can wear sliders again woop woop.

Lifestyle: Room Snippets & Interior Wishlist

Hello! I'm back with a different type of post today, as interiors are my second obsession after fashion I thought it would be a good idea to incorporate this aspect a little more into my blog. I've bought a few new bits and pieces recently and thought I'd share with you a little peek into my room.

First up are my cacti! I've always loved cacti and have built up a little family, I usually pick them up in one of my local garden centres and have far too much fun picking them out. I picked up the marble slab they're sitting on in John Lewis the other day. I wasn't really sure what its intended for (perhaps a chopping board?) but it was reduced from £25 to a fiver so I grabbed one and now my cacti sit on it. Not sure whether to use it for something else though, any ideas?
H&Mcandle I'm a big candle fan and also a big marble fan so this candle from H&M just made sense. The dish is also a H&M buy, their homeware is just amazing! It's a good job none of my local H&Ms stock it as I would probably be bankrupt.
The folk at Ohh Deer treated me to this gorgeous cushion*, it goes so well with my room theme and especially my striped Ikea blanket. I'm always on the hunt for new places to source quirky prints and cute cushions, candles etc. Ohh Deer is right up my street so definitely check them out! 
I always like to have a nice notebook sitting on my desk for when ideas pass through my head, TK Maxx and Homesense always seem to stock good ones.

I've also popped together a little homewares wishlist below, what do you think?
