She's just like paperwork, but harder to read..

Bonjour!!! It's been a long week and I've just got back from a lovely roast dinner at my parents house. I was working in a school this week and, although it has been a wonderful, rewarding experience, I am absolutely knackered, dying for a lie-in! However, I'm in uni tomorrow so I won't exactly get one.. Anyone want to do my course for me haha?

So yesterday I finally caved into the yearly ritual of Christmas shopping; I didn't actually buy anything for anyone, but got some ideas. It was more my parents buying things for me, which was rather pleasant to be honest. Plus it gave me an opportunity to see what's in the shops (lately I've been banning myself from even entering clothes shops cause I really can't trust myself haha). There are some really interesting trends on the high street at the moment; in Topshop I noticed a lot of cute structured dresses, and I may invest in one as they are such a classic item to have. I also think velvet is going to be huge over the winter, which I am ecstatic about because I do love a bit of velvet. Here are some of my favourites

So today I went to a beautiful place in Sherwood (Yes, where Robin Hood is from haha) called Newstead Abbey. It is an abbey that was ruined during the disillusion of the monasteries, but it still looks really impressive and there are some really cool gardens. It was a bit chilly so I wore my faux fur coat (and some really inappropriate shoes as always). Check out the pictures (:

Autumn leaves..

Just a quick post to share some pictures I took at the weekend. I'm so busy at the moment and I will be working in a school all next week so I feel like I'm on a treadmill. Hopefully, when I finish for Christmas in December I will get some time to do some fashion posts.
