Happy Halloween folks!

In spooky news, I carved my first ever pumpkin last night (mine's on the right) and I was pretty darn pleased with myself. We lit them in time for midnight and placed them on the balcony to scare passers by. Or that was the plan anyway. 

In more spooky news, Nola is a wimp. She's scared of Tesco's Munchkin Pumpkin.

Who's got ghoulish plans this evening?

Running Up That Hill print - Annarack

I started following Anna on Instagram a while back and have continuously been impressed with her illustrative abilities. Her jewellery is fantastically unique - I actually featured Anna and her designs in Make & Sell Jewellery - and her prints are perfect for the home. I couldn't resist purchasing this one because the Kate Bush song is one of my absolute favourites. Along with wonderful lyrics, it's certainly an uplifting piece of artwork, no? I plan on framing it and placing it in my bedroom.

Be sure to check out Anna's designs on Etsy, paying particular attention to those unbelievably fab ankh cross necklaces like this one. Are you a fan?

meet Nola

It's safe to say that I've never felt love like this before. Sorry Daniel.

For over a week now, we've been mummy and daddy to the most beautiful kitten in the world - meet Nola. She's positively wonderful and makes me smile a ridiculous amount. Whether we're sharing snuggles or simultaneously chasing an empty loo roll, she's the most fun bundle of fluff in existence.

If you're equally cat-obsessed, visit me on Instagram for more snaps, as well as a selection of videos. Isn't she the cutest?

Haus of Deck

Ever since I stumbled across Haus of Deck, I've been smitten with their jewellery. So when the lovely Steffi sent me a selection of items, I couldn't have been more thrilled with the goodies she chose. I don't normally opt for bright colours, but I can see the eye-popping bracelet getting plenty of wear next summer. I'm actually really excited about the choker too - it's not a style I'd normally consider for myself but being obsessed with this season's penchant for a nineties throwback, I think it's about time I got involved.

The adorable cross charm ring will certainly become a staple, but my absolute favourite out of the four are the Wing Collar Studs. How cool will they look on a vintage white shirt this winter?

I'm completely obsessed with the brand's Art Deco-inspired earrings too so I might just have to treat myself soon. Have you taken a look at Haus of Deck before?

ASOSing around

Thanks to the ever so lovely Rosie from A Rosie Outlook and her amazing giveaway, I was lucky enough to have £100 to spend at ASOS. I treated myself to a festival-appropriate black crochet number and a pair of lacy socks - more on those later - and the fab ASOS Boyfriend T-Shirt in Lace. Daniel got the awesome ASOS Wool Blend Jumper. We even have a little money left on my account, which is marvy.

I finally managed to get Daniel involved with an outfit post. It's about time really because he's never had an issue with posing, as you can tell. This is what happens when your boyfriend drinks too much cider and steals your glasses.

And here's a treat for ya - if you look at the last picture, Daniel and I have swapped legs. Happy Saturday!
