Last week was particularly unexciting for me which is why I didn't post. This week has been pretty much the same but I am not complaining as September/October time is actually my favourite time of the year. I always feel like it is the start of the new year rather than January?!  Maybe its with the school's starting back and the weather changing?  I am not sure but it always has me craving newness and I have enjoyed putting away my sandals and moving my summer clothes into the wardrobe in the spare room.  
I feel like my wardrobe needs a little bit of a refresh though so look out for some new purchases. I am spending evenings online eyeing up leather jackets, boots and chunky jumpers not to mention darker lip colours and plum coloured eyeshadows. I love it all.

This photo was taken in Rowallene Gardens on Saturday. It was a great day and the 3 of us enjoyed pottering about and getting a bite to eat and coffee in the tea rooms. Another bonus is that Rowallene has a little second hand bookshop, I finally managed to buy a couple of books after months of saying that I wanted to get back into reading. A book has not been cracked open yet but they are sitting on my bedside table so it is going to happen!  It will be the first book read post baby, I aim to make it happen by the weekend.

Some Autumnal lovelyness I have been looking at...

Last Weekend

Last weekend I had a night out with some of my neighbours at a local restaurant.  Lots of wine was consumed and I woke up with a mild headache and not nearly enough sleep the next morning so clearly a good night was had!  My outfit consisted of what I felt was a weather appropriate All Saints jumper but it was definitely a mistake as the restaurant was hotter than hell!  Ahhh!

Jumper - All Saints
Jeans - J Brand Destroyed Jeans from Roco Boutique Holywood
Shoes - Topshop Rose Gold Shoes (past season)
Clutch - Accessorize
Last weekend was a busy one with both myself and my husband out on Friday and Saturday so this weekend the evenings will see us sitting firmly on the sofa watching something good on the tv.  We thought we had pretty much watched everything decent that Netflix could offer but we have recently just discovered the brilliant Stranger Things so possibly binge watching that.

Have a great weekend.

New Hair and a Outfit

This week saw me making that momentous decision of to fringe or not to fringe!  A stressful decision by anyones standards ;-) Due to tiredness, worry and possibly less water consumption (pre baby when I had very little to think about, I used to take water consumption very seriously) I have noticed fairly deep lines starting to appear on my head and since I am not willing to jump on the botox bandwagon (although never say never) I thought a fringe could be a cheaper option which would also make me less likely to get told off by my mum and my husband for getting botox. 

So after losing many minutes/hours of my life looking on google images at celebrities with fringes I decided to go for it. I have dabbled with a fringe throughout the years, often they have possibly been too thick and that man of mine had many nicknames for me while sporting past fringes so I decided to go light and a little longer so I can style it to the sides if necessary.  
I must say I like it, I feel like I have more of a hair style and along with the wrinkle disguise I think it looks softer and more flattering especially when wearing my hair up.  I also had some post pregnancy hair loss which has seen some tufts of hair growing back around my hairline so it also blends that in so all in all a good decision I think. Anyway if your considering it then why not!  It always grows back, although if I remember correctly it is a total pain! 

Anyway here is a photo of a outfit and me sporting my new do!
