Tuesday Treasures // Frozen in Pink

Good morning gorgeous, how are you? I am wrapped up on the sofa with my laptop, hiding behind the closed curtains away from the ghastly rain. I know I was wishing for autumn not that long ago, but rain was not exactly what I had in mind. However, it does give me a very valid excuse not to get dressed all day, I can stay all cosy in my dressing gown! You may have noticed that my usual Mermaid Tales was aborted yesterday, because (you may have seen on the socials,) I was helping out the beautiful Grace Kingsley at The Kingsley Academy with her make up student Kelly. I spent the morning having a quite a bold natural look applied to my face, with cat eyes and eyebrow application being perfected in particular. The afternoon was a rather different affair altogether, when this frozen in pastel pink, glittery, sparkly masterpiece was created.

We couldn’t stop looking at all the sparkle in all it’s glory and it got me inspired to create this weeks Tuesday Treasures. With a break from our a month of autumn inspiration, I thought I would throw in some frozen in pink pastel inspiration. These are the perfect outfits for this winter, who doesn’t love a bit of pastel pink and sparkles! Of course, I don’t expect you to make your face up with all this glory (unless you want glitter bogies for days after!) but it was too good not to share it with you, and hey, Halloween is coming up so perhaps your looking for some different fancy dress inspo?

Shop Local #1 // Sobey’s on Park Street, Bristol

Now that the weather is feeling all together more autumnal, it’s the time of year that I like to spend time exploring the city. Yesterday I decided to head in to town and over to Park Street. It has been ages since I have had a wonder over that side of town and Park Street has some really cool shops and cafe’s so I knew it would be a nice mooch around. I love it when the weather is crisp and sunny, meandering in and out of shops, grabbing coffee and milkshakes. I was going to go it alone, but it is always better making it a day date, so I called up Lily as I was passing her house to see if she wanted to come too and she was well up for an excuse to get out the house.

You can see exactly what we got up to on my vlogtober vlog, there was short fringe cuts, milkshakes and bubble tea. My main aim of popping in to town was to find a shop that has the wow factor that is worth telling you about. I have been wanting to start a shop local series on the blog for a while, I dabble in it on Fishee Designs blog, but it wasn’t the right time or place for it. There’s many reasons why I wanted to start this series, A) because it forces me to leave the house (and actually get dressed!) B) I love to explore Bristol, there are so many places I am still yet to have explored in the two years I have been here (I need to get out more!) and C) I love to promote awesome businesses, just because they’re awesome!

Lily and I had a browse around a few of the charity shops and vintage shops on Park Street but on our way back to the car, I hadn’t been blown away by a shop and really excited about a space, until we walked in to Sobey’s. About a year ago it replaced the old Motel shop at the bottom of Park Street, they offer a mix of vintage, upcycled and new retro clothing alongside some quirky jewellery and accessories. Although I still like the odd bit of vintage, I have really had my day with trawling uninspiring and over priced jumble sales (for want of a better description). I am a sucker for the way things are presented, and Sobey’s have put a real effort in to the way their items are displayed. They have old next to new, upcycled vintage teamed with modern retro and it all feels like it is of the here and now. It has a really quirky vintage vibe but is aesthetically inspiring and perfectly laid out.

It is definitely somewhere I will be going back to to look for staple vintage pieces.

Tuesday Treasures // Autumn Rose

If you saw my outfit post early, you will know that I am embracing red – which NEVER happen! I was inspired by the Bristol Fashion Week AW14 catwalk, with red being a key trend for this season. I feel like it has to be the right shade of red for me, that doesn’t clash with my hair. Although it’s more purple now so I feel purple and red are more of a team than pink and red (unless you are the Kellogg’s Special K lady!).

I wanted to put together the perfect autumn rose outfit for you, and combine it with some of my fav autumn rose pieces available online today. I am not sure how much red will make an appearance after October (maybe until christmas) so make the most of it!

Outfit Post // Autumn Rose

Yay!!! Autumn is here! This is my FAV time of year, I love all the seasons, but I am an autumn rose for sure. Which is completely ironic because for the past three years since I have been pink, I have always felt that the autumnal colour palette just wasn’t for me when it comes to fashion. Although, I do love the changing colours of nature all around, the yellows, oranges and reds and all the hues in between. I am fully embracing October this year, with exciting blog posts each week with autumn and halloween themed outfit posts and features, did you see the first kick it off, my Autumn Allotments?

Last week, my Crown & Glory Glitterati box arrived (more on that tomorrow) and inside it was a blood red whole lotta rosie. I have to be honest when I first saw it, I turned my nose up and dismissed it (it’s all caught on camera in my unboxing video). However, when I was editing the video, I decided I actually quite liked it now that my hair wasn’t so pink any more, and have today, decided to embrace it.

Although I died my hair this morning, and I was actually going for a dark pinky, purple, and it’s a lot lighter than I wanted but it the right tone I was hoping for. I added a bit of Crazy Colour Fire red in to the mix to give the pinky/purple and duskier undertone which I was hoping would give it a more autumnal vibe that would no longer clash with deep reds.

The dress I am wearing is actually one my grandma made for me over three years ago, (whilst I still had red hair) and it is the only red thing I have in my wardrobe, and shamefully, I have never worn it. In actual fact, I could only just about get back in to it, with very little room to move (or breathe!). It was made from some japanese silk fabric I was given when I was in the shop. I love the fabric so much and it has hints of purple and green running through the flowers so the combination with my hair worked really well.

I’m getting all the oldies out today as these Cat boots (similar) I bought two years ago and haven’t worn them for ages, again, brown is another colour that I don’t wear very often but these boots are perfect autumn/winter boots as they are very comfortable and fur lined for extra warmth. My fur trimmed blanket cardigan was from a charity shop last year, although I lived in it last year, it so cosy!
