2017 Best Nine

This year's best 9 from my posts on Instagram. Guess I'll try post more flat lays next year. Hopefully I'll be traveling so there will be more photos of me not in the city I live in.

Beating The Cold | Outfit

The day I went to the Christmas market was cold and snowy. As much as I love the snow the cold wasn't going to beat me.  

I layerd up under this lined denim jacket to keep warm. What you can't see is I'm wearing a thin cardigan and a hoodie underneath. The top I'm wearing is cotton so it keeps me warmer than a normal t-shirt. I'm wearing the thickest winter tights I own with a pair of socks over the top to keep my legs warm. I however couldn't do d my black gloves so had to go with those ones that don't really match. But at least i was somewhat warm despite the cold cold weather.

Alternative & Gothic Gift Guide

Alternative Xmas Presents


It's almost time for Christmas with only less than 2 weeks to go. Don't know what to buy the spooky lover? As with every year i always ask for something spooky related, i can't help it. It is however easier to shop for these around Halloween, but if you forget then not to worry. You could always buy them something from killstar, I'm always wanting something from them at most of the year, they have a variety of items to gift other than clothes too.

Could always opt to buy them something by sourpuss, i love a lot of their home items but always get around to finding them when they go out of stock.

Any of the items from above i would love to receive, and I'm sure and lot of spooky lovers would to. Heck i already own the moon bag because i couldn't resist it. That bat pin is calling me because it's so darn cute! Anything with a bat on i fall in love with.

And when in doubt some cute dark socks will always do the trick! Along with mugs, who can ever own enough mugs?

Winter Coat Searching

 As I’m always cold i figured it was time to find a new winter coat especially because the black one i own doesn't have a hood, which isn't very good in winter. I love how it looks and will continue to wear it but i need one with a hood for the days it pours it down and is windy. Some of them I’ve been looking at are wool/polyester. 

I want a black one as I’ll wear that more often which is the same with any clothes. I have a blue parka style coat but i basically only wear it to walk to work and most of the time it overheats me while i'm walking.

The criteria is;
- Black 
- With a hood 
- Has pockets 

I plan to look online to buy one, which can make it trickier since you can't feel it or try it to see what will fit under it, you can only base the coat on the photos, which when looking for a winter one can be deceiving as it might not be as thick as it looks or be as weather resistant as it seems. 

Coats i'm contemplating are from re-style;

 I know they don't look very warm but considering i don't normally wear a coat anyway and just deal with hoodies and cardigans with layers under, i think these will be a lot warmer than what i usually wear. I'm thinking of buying one from the right hand side, they a good length for my and have some detail that makes them stand out.

Autumn Outfit Inspo

Outfit Inspo

Autumn is the time for layering and i love it. That and cosy scarves!
This is just a few outfits i've managed to find on polyvore that might give me some inspiration for the comming colder months. Three of the lovelies i already follow on instagram.
The moon jumper i've been wanting for almost a year now, if it's still in stock i might just have to buy it. I can't help but buy any items with moons on them.

Pumpkin Tee | Outfit

Pumpkin t-shirt, halloween everyday

I know halloween is over but that will never stop me from wearing spooky clothes. I don't often wear this tee and i don't know why. It's a big print and stands out so it's got everything i look for in a tee.

 I layered the t-shirt over a long vest and i have to say i'm loving this combo. I've been getting more use out of this vest lately by using a belt to section other tops or just wearing it over a dress to create a flowey look. Safe to say there will be me outfits with this vest layered under other items. I'm thinking of using some of my crop tops for this. However i may just make this outfit again but with different t-shirts and tights.

Killstar Wants

Killstar Wants

When am i ever not wanting something from killstar? Their stuff looks cool and it's good quality. Most of the stuff i want at the moment (which i couldn't find on polyvore) is t-shirts, hoodies and socks. But these are a few items that i've been lusting over for a long time or they've just come out.

I feel like mermaid style jumper will be great in autumn and winter and would be easy for me to throw on for work, which is one of the reasons i want it, that and i feel like it would be good for iceland. The eye bag, kind of been wanting that since it came out a while ago. Same reasons for wanting the black hoodie dress. I've got a similar one however it's got a huge ankh on and i want a plane one.

The Marilyn Manson hoodie i'm wanting for both me and my partner, though he'd probably end up wearing it most of the time. We're both a fan of his and i feel it will be good for the lazy days to snuggle into.

Do you want anything from killstar right now?

Cozy Clothing Season

Time for jumpers and cardigans!

 So the temperature has dropped and it's time to dig out the cosy clothes again. I love autumn since you get to snuggle into cute jumpers and cardigans and not over heat. As i pretty much power walk to work i can't wear a coat, so i nice warmish cardigan is good for those mornings.
This dead cute jumper from iron fist is probably one of my favourites, it's quite thin but it's still pretty warm and of course cute! Just look at that little coffin! I can layer a long sleeve top under this to keep me warm however.

The star cardigan i actually do wear quite regularly to work as it's knitted but is breathable as i walk to work. Which i'm not sure where i got it from as i've had it a lot of years, maybe mango. If i decide to wear it on a practically
chilly morning which we've been having recently, i will layer a thin black cardigan under it. As i do a lot in the autumn months.

Throw on a scarf or beanie and i'm good to go for the day.

Though this is probably my go to uniform for work in autumn and most of winter. I got this hooded cardigan from H&M probably over a year again and i wear it a lot. I'm always throwing this on as it's easy to wear and keeps me warm. Most of the days i will be seen in this at work. However i'm always wearing something different under it. As it's plain black it goes with anything, i say that but all of my clothes are black. The length of it is also great, though i am on the look out for a full length cardigan.

Christmas Tv and Music Gift Guide*

 TV and Music Gift Guide

It's that time of year again now that Halloween is over, time to think about what to buy people for Christmas and buying for some people can be tricky as they can be picky. So for me it's easier to buy items for people based around things they like such as TV shows and music. It narrows down what to buy for them and you know they will like it as it's something they enjoy listening to or watching.

With new seasons of every ones favourite shows coming out this year why not buy them something around that. It could be a simple pop funko to items of clothing such as everyone favourite Christmas item, pyjamas! It's cold and who doesn't love getting some new pyjamas to snuggle into? You can change into them the same day you get then, having new PJ's to wear just feels nice. We all know someone who could do with some new ones. Or since Christmas is in during winter why not buy someone a scarf or beanie, they always come in handy for those cold December and January morning. I have a beanie that says "Winter is coming" which is clearly a game of thrones reference.

My picks are based on what i think anyone would like and have some use for. Items that are practical and some that aren't but decoration items are always nice to have.

The Walking Dead:
Everyones favourite Zombie show.
There is always an excuse to buy someone a new cup even if they have way to many already. It's something easy as there is many designs to choose from and everyone will like it. Pop funkos as people like to collect them and they're just look cute!

Game Of Thrones:
Take away the blues of having to wait a year or so for the next season with some game of thrones related items. Found out what their favourite house is a buy them a t-shirt with the house symbol on. Or a boxset of the seasons up to now.

Or is music is more their scene a few new albums have been realised this year. My picks for my loved ones would be;

 Marilyn Manson - Heaven Upside Down 
Marilyn's latest album is fantastic and fans seem to be enjoying it.
If they're a big fan and already own the album you could always buy a t-shirt or hoodie which is related to this album.

Motionless In White - Graveyard Shift
This album came out earlier this year and it's fantastic. The whole album is strong. Again if they already own this album then there is always the option of buying them a t-shirt so they can represent the bands they love.

Winter Warmers;
As i said above it's always great to buy items that can be useful for the winter, not only will they get some use out of the item but you'll get to see them wear it a lot and it will remind them of you. Beanies, gloves and scarfs, are always useful as they can change an outfit and within winter since we wear coats most of the time winter accessories can help with not feeling like you're always in the same things. I know i love owning a few different scarfs so i can change them around to create different looks depending on what I'm wearing.

Safe to say Christmas gifts don't have to be sets of smelly stuff including shower gel etc.
