Hello hello!

I've said this before, but I'll say it again... I'm back! This time I'm determined to stick at it though, promise!

Anyway, our disappointing Summer is well and truly over. We managed to get a few weeks of Autumn, but this week it has been COLD. The park I pass by on the way to work was seriously eerie, the grass was white! Brrr.

Traditionally this is the season where we all retire back into our shells of darker, duller colours. High street outlets bombard us with darkness. 

But me? Well, that's just not my style. 

Dark, dull clothes mixed with dark, dull weather makes for a serious case of the 'Winter Blues'. For me, the brighter the better. I mean, I'll still get the blues, I'll still pine for warmer climes, I'll still wish I could eat frozen yogurt without it freezing me too. But just take a look at this beautiful dress.

If you're up to date with my previous posts, you'll already know my feelings on sales. Ghastly, horrific experiences. But every now and then, a little gem pokes out of the filth. I defy anyone around me to feel miserable while I'm wearing this gorgeous bright yellow dress, with amazing oriental floral prints all over it. I got it in a size 6 and it's still pretty loose fitting on me. So I threw on my trusty Asos skinny black belt to cinch it all in, wear the dress off the shoulder and we have a bright outfit to smash through those blues.

My infatuation with Henna Tattoos is still going strong, they've been making their way from my hands up to my arms. I've really been loving Arabic lately, the scriptures are amazingly beautiful, some may even call it art.

And last but certainly not least, my favorite necklace at the moment, the Rita Ora Amber necklace. It's a beaut. It's huge, it's statement, it's chunky. And I heart it. It's bloody heavy though haha.

 Kiss goodbye to Designerspray and say hello to...
