Ghostly x Warby Parker for Black Friday

This summer I finally go around to getting some much needed new glasses from the super lovely french brand Jimmy Fairly. Up until this point I had been reasonably content with my £10 frames that were too big, seeing as I didn't really wear them all that often. After getting my new specs I've had a bit of a different mind-set and now love looking a pretty frames and good quality eyewear. One of the brands I've been keeping an eye on is Warby Parker who do some beautiful optical glasses as well as sunglasses. The other day I was surprisingly contacted by Warby Parker  about a new launch they're doing for Black Friday. 

Their new collection is a collaboration with the record company Ghostly who have done these collaborations before, where they're bringing back their sleek Curtis sunglasses in 3 new colours .The new colours are Moss, Aubergine Fade and Burbon Tortoise as well as the classic Revolver Black. The sunglasses have a quite 'square' shape but I quite like that in eyewear. Personally I perfer the Burbon Tortoise as I've always been a fan of tortoise patterned frames. The colection is out tomorrow, November 28th and pricing starts at $95, not the cheapest of sunnies but you get what you pay for and these will definitely last you longer than a £2 pair from Primark.  Check the collection out below and find them plus all the other gorgeous frames they do at!

Apart from that I just wanted to drop in and share a brilliant Black Friday offer! Sigma  Beauty is doing free worldwide shipping again this year! Available with the discount code BF2014 from and it is live now, so head over whilst the offer is on if you need some good quality makeup brushes.

To those of you who are planning to do a bit of crazy shopping over the next 24 hours - enjoy! Meanwhile I'm going to continue working my way through end of term projects, whoop whoop.

The King of Coats

ZARA, coat (old, similar HERE) // PUBLIC DESIRE, boots // MONKI, jeans & hat // BIKBOK, blazer // HM, scarf & belt (and top - old) // DKNY, watch (sold out, similar HERE)

Everyone need that one perfect staple coat for the colder A/W months, and I sure found mine last year for only £30 in Zara. This grey bad boy is in my opinion the perfect coat to make any oufit look tailored and put toghether, yet casual and effortless. Paired with my new Public Desire boots, black jeans, a big scarf and my favourite hat I was feeling oh so cool. Haha, not reallly, but how can pointed boots and a hat not make you feel good?

I was going for a meal with my aunt and uncle this day so because I was wearing just a cami, and don't always love bearing my bare arms and shoulders when I'm in a restaurant, I decided to chuck this white blazer on under my coat for that extra layer. In the end I'm not sure if I liked it, especially when the white peeked out from under the coat but I went for it anyway.

I hope you're all liking these new posts, I promise it won't just be outfits from now but I've got absolute mountains of uni work to get through before christmas so I'm trying to put together what I can in the time I've got. Speaking of work, I've got to get back to marketing plans and trend translations, woohoo.

Green & Grey

HM, grey knit // MONKI , jeans // WEEKDAY, coat // HM, boots & scarf (old) // DKNY, watch (sold out) similar HERE // JIMMY FAIRLY, bag

Won't you look at that, I've finally crawled out of my No Blogging hole. Took me long enough, and I have to admit I almost forgot I had a blog for a second but then I remembered and realised I really wanted to get back into the swing of things, so here I am. Fingers crossed I won't dissapear again. 

I've just got my hands on two of the things I was lusting after in the hm x alexander wang collection (will be sharing once it's on my door, don't worry), plus had a super yummy breakfast so I figured I'd keep the good morning going by doing a blogpost on yesterdays outfit.

This grey knit is my baby, I practically live in it on cold mornings when leaving my bed is extra painful. I was looking everywhere for a boyfriend style blazer coat this summer and found this gem reduced 70%  when visiting family up north, been a staple ever since the weather got colder as it is perfect for layering. Whenever I go oversized on the top half I tend to go for skinny jeans to balance it all out, these Monki ones are super skinny but so so comfy, and they dont go baggy after a long day - win. 

I am not big on bags but I love these type of fabric shopping bags. I got this one when I bought my glasses from Jimmy Fairly but they are sold everywhere with lots of different prints. Perfect for uni or if you want to be more eco friendly when shopping and not use plastic bags :) Last but not least I had to get a close up of my new watch. My old one broke so I was over excited when I managed to get my hands on this in the DKNY sale for only £50. 

I'm glad to be back on here again and I hope you lovely lot who keep clicking by will keep doing so now that I'll be putting some more content up!
