baby it's cold outside.

1. khaki fur parka - miss selfridge
2. knitted grey cardigan - topshop
3. grey fur snood - new look
4. loreal colour riche lipstick - boots
5. black buckled boots - new look
6. tartan tea dress with collar - river island

Now that the summer has officially gone, I've come to terms with no more bright blue sky and sunshine and I've prepared myself for the chilly weather, which I cannot wait for since I'm christmas in a person! Today's post is a wishlist/items I've been lusting over.

I really want to get a coat early on this year, and I've got my heart set on a parka, I'm not 100% sure which one yet, however this one from miss selfridge is very cute! The other thing I adore the most is the River Island dress that I actually saw on a fellow bloggers site and fell in love, but they've sold out online! Check out Phoebe's post on it! What are you wanting at the moment? Does anything on my list take your fancy?

i'm doing a marathon!

Yes that's right, myself and a close friend of mine are taking part in the Shine Marathon in a couple of weeks! It's a 26.2 mile route, in London! It gets even better, it's being hosted throughout the night, so whilst your all snuggle in bed, think of me walking miles apon miles in the cold!

Now a marathon normally implies that you run it, however this one is a walking one, I can barely run 10 minutes, let alone 8 hours! When we first signed up, we thought we'd have plenty of time for training, but since work has been manic, there hasn't been a lot of time. I've been training on a treadmill, but its not really the same, plus it's mega boring!

So, that's the route. We start at battersea and end there too, then we just walk along the main attractions of London, which is what makes this marathon so appealing. You get fit, have fun with your friends, raise money for an amazing charity and also visit some amazing places! There's a pit stop every 4 miles for water, snacks, loos and first aid (hopefully I won't need a first aider!) 

I think on the night, we'll pull through! I can imagine with all the people there, in the moment that we should finish with a good time, even though its a competition. The money all goes to cancer research which is very important to me and the people around me, I lost my grandad to cancer, and Neil's lost all of his grandparents because of cancer too. It's an awful thing to have an I don't wish it on anyone!

Do you guys have any tips about what to pack in our backpacks to keep us going? Have you ever thought or done one before?! Any motivation and ideas to get us through it will be much appreciated, we're going to need it! If you'd like to see a blog post about my adventure and what you'd like to see, let me know :)

As I mentioned in my previous post, I had persuaded my lovely boyfriend to take a few snaps of my outfits whilst we were away camping! I am fully aware that these pictures aren't the best of quality, and the lighting isn't too fab either, but I/we tried our best with what we had! :)

 Denim Jacket - Newlook
Floral Cami - Newlook
Watch - Michael Kors
Bag - Mulberry Bayswater (its got raindrops on it!)

This outfit was when we went and visited Bury! Was very quick and simple to piece together, I always team my printed/plain camis with a denim jacket to finish it off! Unfortunately it did rain, so I look a bit blah!

White Tshirt - Newlook
Grey Side Split Skirt - Newlook
Flipflops - Greece
Necklace - Newlook

Whenever I wear this outift, I always feel like a teacher! So I popped my necklace on to give it more of a edgy vibe. I usually wear this outift with the Kate Moss 107 lipstick but it rubbed off throughout the day! I do apologise about the state of my hair, but I was living au naturale since we were camping!

Neil wanted to get involved aswell. What a hottie I've bagged myself! His plain grey tee is from River Island!

Aww, so cute! Hope you all enjoyed this first trial and error type of OOTD. If you enjoyed it, let me know and I shall try and focus on these posts more often. Since I work in fashion I'm always buying little bits and bobs every now and then! What was your favourite outfit and why? Leave a comment, let me know what you'd like to see next and I'll see what I can do! :)
