Autumn/Winter Primark Haul

If you read my last blog post you will be aware that I really like this time of year and everything that comes with it. However one of the main, most obvious reasons I like it is because you get to wear autumny/wintery (?) clothes!
So last week as well as delving into last years purchases, which the majority I had forgotten about I also thought it was about time I went and checked out what Primark had to offer! My city doesn't have a Primark (yet!) so when I want to go I have to make a day of it (an even better excuse to go, in my eyes!!) Sometimes I go in there and find nothing but as you will see there were definitely a few thing that caught my eye!

 1. Tartan scarf - This is actually reversible, 2 for the price of 1! It's a really thick, snuggly scarf perfect for freezing mornings! £6

2. Heart jumper - Sometimes Primark jumpers can feel a bit..meh. Which usually puts me off but this one is super soft and super comfy. £14

3. Jumper with collar - This is my favorite item that I bought because I always try and layer my jumpers with the few shirts I have but I never seem to pull it off! But with this little number it's already done for me!

4. Khaki jersey jumper - Not going to lie this photo doesn't really do this jumper justice but it's super soft and perfect to go with leggings. It's also got a zip going down the back. £10

5. Giraffe onesie - Random purchase but you can't have too many onesies can you!? £11

Hope that gave you a bit of an idea what's available in Primark if you've not had chance to pop in yet. All I need now is the weather to cool down so I can actually where them!

Sweater weather tag

Good afternoon everyone!
Hope you're enjoying your week so far! 

As some of you may know I came back from my holidays at the very end of August so my first day back at home was September 1st and everything changed! My family went back to work and school, it started to get darker earlier, the temperature dropped slightly (although it is gorgeous sunshine outside at the moment!) and all the shops changed to autumn/winter fashion. It's like we changed from summer to autumn over night! I'm not complaining though, I love this time of year when it starts to get colder and you can put on your woolly jumpers and sit in front of the fire. With that in mind I thought I would do the "sweater weather tag" to get me even more in the mood! 

Here we go...

1. Favourite candle scent? I only own one which is the Seychelles candle from The White Company and it smells divine.

2. Coffee, tea or hot chocolate? Hot chocolate everytime! With cream and marshmallows preferably.

3. What's your favourite Autumn memory? I don't have one specific memory but I love walks on the beach with my family when it's cold, and I have lots of good memories of going to firework displays with my grandparents. 

4. Which makeup trend do you prefer, dark lips or winged eyeliner? I don't use eyeliner or lipstick so can't really comment! 

5. Best fragrance for Autumn? To be honest...whatever I have!! 

6. Favourite Autumn food? It's got to be mashed potato! I know most people eat this all year around but it's even better when you've been out in the cold all day and just need something to warm you up!

7. What is the autumn weather like where you live? Cooler and wetter but we get the odd cool day with lots of sunshine and those are the best.

8. Most worn sweater? My green chunky knit cardigan from Ark a few years ago.

9. Must-have nail polish for autumn? Dark green 

10. Game of football or jumping in a pile of leaves? Jumping in leaves 100%, you can play football any time of year?!

11. Skinny jeans or leggings? ooo difficult, depends where I'm going/ what I'm doing!

12. Combat boots or Uggs? Uggs simply because they keep your feet so toasty!

13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?  Pardon?!

14. Favourite Autumn TV show? I'm going to say Strictly Come Dancing as I think I'll really get into it this year.

15. What song gets you in the Autumn spirit? Katy Perry - Firework. Don't think there's been a bonfire night since it's been released that I haven't heard it. 

Brrrr I feel cold just talking about autum/winter! 
Hopefully it will be an exciting time of year.

What do you look forward to in autumn?
I tag anyone who want's to get into the autumn spirit!

Mes vacances fran├žais

I'm back from my adventure in France with my family and a few friends. It's so nice to just pack up and leave everything else behind, travel away and relax for a few weeks! Don't get my wrong our holiday didn't run as smoothly as we had hoped it would (major car issues!/ended up flying home!!) but it was still nice to have a change of scenery and spend time with family before everyone slots back into normal work/school routines. 

It was quite a varied holiday ranging from chilling by the pool, walking around the local city and cycling all the way round the lake! Here a few snapshots I thought I would share with you. 

Even if you only go for a few days or just a short distance from home. A holiday can make you feel refreshed, relaxed and recharged. 
Hope this has given you a brief insight into my summer holiday. 
Have you been away this summer? Where have you been?!
