Suede and Candy colours...

Monday, November 15, 2010

Apologies for being MIA the past few days.. I really must get better organised! The weekend
seems to disappear in a blur of photography homework, boxing (haye v harrison) which I was subjected to on sat night (instead of x factor!) and sleepless nights due to the rat inhabiting the attic above my room..yes you heard right a rat!! horrific or what.. weird noises started happening a few nights ago & I was convinced it was not a mouse..actually weird scratching noises had my over active imagination thinking of certain scenes in the exorcist which as you can imagine lead me to abandon my room for a safer bed at Dave's house.







These pretty tea cup and tea pot clips were sent to me by the lovely Sophie who runs Crown & Glory, a fab hair accessory site. She has kindly offered any of my readers 15% off anything on site until the end of November, using the code: magpiegirl.
Be sure to check it out, my fav new piece is the paper crane hairclips!










Coat: Bellissima, Jumper: H&M, Suede leggings: M&S limited edition sale, boots: M&S, Necklace: sample sale, Bow ring: Editor, Flower ring: Topshop, Gold band: heirloom.

hair clips: C/O Crown and glory,
I dunno about the rest of the world but here in Northern Ireland the temperatures have dropped to 1 oC..so pretty damn cold! I got these suede leggings the other day in Marks reduced from £25 to £12 in the sale. They are so comfy soft and incredibly warm! I dunno how well suede leggings will wear? but for £12 I don't mind, they'll get me through a few cold months..

    That necklace is gorgeous.

    I'm trying out different ways to get the waves you are talking about. Olsen twins do have good hair. Effortless. So when I crack it I'll do a vid. :)

  15. the suede leggings are actually amazing, i honestly wouldn't have thought they came from m&s. they look topshop, or even designer! they look lovely on you, especially with how you have teamed it with the light, oversized jumper. xxx

  16. I love the hair accessories! I'm away to visit their site. And it's freezing over in Scotland now too. I look like a frickin' bag lady with all the layers.
    Good luck with the rat - we had a mouse scratching inside the walls once and it absolutely drives you demented!

  18. Love the colours in this outfit - perfect with your gorgeous hair and the autumnal backdrop.

    I haven't really looked at M&S Limited Edition clothes but I really like the shoes and boots they do.

    ps - chuffing freezing in Liverpool - you're not alone with the low temperatures!

  20. I too suffer from an overactive imagination and am prone to many sleepless nights thinking the grim reaper is in my living room (but as long as I stay firmly tucked in bed, the ghoulies will not harm me) hehehe. Love these shots and all the accessories!

  44. I do want to see that movie. It is hard for us to get baby sitters that we trust enough, so we don't see films in theatres as often as we had before we had kids.

    The next movies we'll be seeing in theatres will definitely be: Harry Potter Deathly Hollows pt. 1, Tron Legacy, and Chronicles of Narnia Voyage of the Dawn Treader

    I do want to see Black Swan, but think I'll have to wait for it to come out on DVD. So sorry. Let me know how it is when you do get to see it, because you'll probably see it before me!!!
