Ark to have some fun with for halloween. The dress is velvet with a mesh area on the chest and arms, and its a great dress to take you from the gothic look to the christmas look by adding a gold bag and heels! The coat, now lets talk about this amazing coat, it has a baby pink fur collar! baby pink! and another good thing is that it also comes off which is perfect for me as I HATE wearing fur when it rains, its like having a wet dog around my neck. So this obviously isn't my normal look but I kind of loved rocking the goth vibe it totally embraces my red hair and pale skin (not that you can tell my hair is red with my super amaze spooky colour editing) I thought I'd also share with you a funny little story, that when we went to the nature reserve to shoot this, some men passing could see me through the trees and all we could hear was them saying "look a deer, is it a deer? I think its a deer, be really quiet" for them to then slowly move closer and closer with massive binoculars for a better look, he ended up about 10m away before realising it was "kids taking photos" Now I don't know about you but I've never seen a deer wearing a black coat with a pink collar?

On sunday I made my way, along with my Mum and basset hound, Jacob, to a log cabin in Wrelton on the North Yorkshire Moors. I love the country and going in Autumn was the most amazing time to pick. The colours were beautiful, and the hill tops were lost to the mist, it really was something spectacular. On the first day we were walking through the woods (which Jacob being a hound dog loved so much, his nose was constantly following scents) we stumbled upon two families of deer, leaping through the trees and plants, it was stunning to see them in the woods in such large groups, this was my highlight of the trip! A few weeks before the trip I was lucky to get contacted by an online store called Get The Label and asked if I'd like to pick a few items I liked. Instead of going for a dress I thought I would go for some outdoor gear for my trip! Get The Label sell branded and designer items at discount prices, so its really good if your looking for chritmas presents! My boyfriend was very jealous when my items came and asked me why I didn't pick guy items, silly question right? I chose a Craghoppers coat, which has a fleece attached inside, and it literally saved me! It was so cold on the moors but I didn't feel it at all in this coat compared to when I put my winter parka on to goto the Pub. I also chose some Nike trainers for when we went walking on land a little less muddy, they were so comfortable to slip on after wearing my heavy walking boots for 5 hours on the moors (the colour also matched my coat obviously). They sell so many brands from Converse and Ralph Lauren to Ax Paris and Levis, its a great site if you are after outdoor clothing or fashion clothing, it has something for everyone!
Seriously considering ditching all "fashion" coats for this one
(ps this is at the log cabin)
I tried a bit of long exposure with my camera
I need this to be my every day (without the seat gripping, breath holding 30% up hill drive)
Jacob was really tired from all the walking, he actually refused to move at one point
I think you can see from the photos how stunning the moors are, and also how much Jacob enjoyed himself on his little adventure!
Have you been to the Moors?

I mentioned last week in my outfit post that the necklace I was wearing was one I had made from my jewellery brand, Wild Inanda. If you can remember a few months ago I started making crystal jewellery under the name of Native Wolf, however I changed the name to something more unique as googling Native Wolf just brought up a lot of stuff about wolves (surprisingly). I got the name from doing my family tree a few years ago, Inanda was my Great x3 Gran's name who was Nordic. I've also found out it means beauty in Zulu so thought it was very fitting for the type of items I sell. So a new name and some new branding later, I have a new adventure. A new name isn't a new adventure you may be thinking, however this time I have started my own website along side Etsy, as well as a few new surprises. I'm so excited, nervous and scared! I've bought so many crystals for the wire wrap jewellery I make myself, as well as the new side of sourcing beautiful silver pieces of jewellery and crystals for the home from around the world to sell alongside my handmade stuff. It's only been a week since I launched my website and the response from people has been great. It's early days, and I know global domination isn't going to happen over night, being a new brand is really hard, you have no following as people don't know you and they have no loyalty to you- but I am going to work so hard to get this going and let my little adventure become a success!
Please check out my website here, I'd love to know what you think?

M&S have some brand spanking new adverts on the go at the moment, and they really do make you stop and watch! For years I never would have stepped in M&S, thinking it was more for older women, but hello have you seen the advert below! These women look amazing and what they are wearing is even more amazing. I was totally drawn in by the 60's vibe going on and you all know I love the 60's. I put together some of my favourite picks from the website on the 60's theme but I could have done so many moodboard- I was really drawn to all their products that have an earthy bohemian feel to them, but no, I had to focus myself and stick to the task in hand. I love the bright bold colours, and I think its great to stand out in autumn whilst everyone else is wearing black. I love the yellow mini skirt and polo neck combination as well as sticking on those over the knee boots (Ariana Grande style), it just screams 60' chic. The blue coat is perfect for a clashing colour with the yellow and the shape is really flattering. If the over the knee boots are too much for you, I'd team the look with another block colour with the red chelsea boots. For an elegant touch I've added some leather gloves to wear when it gets chilly as well as the black bag with that strip of colour on. I love this whole outfit, and I am really impressed with M&S, there is so much that would appeal to my age, and within my budget. I would highly recommend looking at their coats, wether you are looking for oversized, pastel, fur, you name it they have it. I would go as far as saying they have the best selection I have seen on the high street this season.
Don't forget to check out the advert below, I'm sure there will be some style inspo in there for you all!
Do you shop at M&S and have you checked out the new season? I'd love to hear from you!

Todays outfit is a little different to the normal outfits I post, but you cant be running around in a 60's style dress everyday, sometimes you need a casual day off! These boyfriend jeans were sent to me by my faves over at Ark. I love the high waist on them and the fit, being small this type would normally swamp me, but these fit and look really good! Ark also sent me the amazing lace shoulder jumper which I just adore, the quality of this top is really good, its comfortable and has a slight bohemian feel to it. I teamed the outfit with my favourite boots from Primark but it could also work with some pointed heels. Im also wearing one of my own necklaces that I make and sell, if you can remember I had a shop on Etsy called Native Wolf, but after realising there were a few other shops with the same name I rebranded to Wild Inanda, and launched my own website alongside Etsy. I will post later in the week more details about it but I would love if you could check my website out here there are some pieces I have lovingly made as well as beautiful agate crystal silver pieces I've sourced from around the world. I'm very excited about my new adventure, and cant wait to share my journey with you!

I thought I would start doing posts now and again on bloggers, instagramers, crafters or designers who inspire me. I mean there is plenty of people who I fan girl over every day on instagram, but I never share them on my blog.And what a better person to start with then Me and Orla Sara's blog is filled with beautiful photography, with walks in the Yorkshire country side and stunning photos with her little girl Orla. I found Sarah through instagram here Sara's instagram is the most perfect account I have ever seen, and with nearly 40k followers I guess Im not the only one who thinks so! Her photos taken in her dreamy home in the middle of the Yorkshire countryside are so inspiring and the photos with her litte girl, Orla, are the most adorable Mum and daughter photos ever! Not only does Sara have the perfect instagram and blog, she's also one of those people who even though has thousands of followers, actually replies to your comments and has a little chat! I mean imagine that, someone who replies!
Lovely person with an even lovelier account!
