Dress - Fred Perry
Scarf - H&M
Belt - Ted Baker
Lipstick - Mac

So i'm aware this isn't the fur scarf post I said I was going to chat about in yesterdays post, but with it being halloween and me having a lot of time on my hands this morning. I started doing my dark make-up and had far to much fun! So I decided to do a halloween post today and I'll do my scarf post tomorrow.
This dress is one i've had for years, when I first brought it I wore it non stop, but as i've brought more and more dresses it's sort of been pushed to the back of the wardrobe. I decided it deserved an outing today as it reminded me of the Adams Family little girl (I've forgotten her name).
I will be wearing my fabulous ZARA coat with this outfit, but I thought you guys might be bored of seeing it for 3 days in a row! 
I will also pair this with my Topshop Boots and Zara shopper bag.
Have a lovely halloween whatever your doing! Oh how I miss being little and dressing up, demanding sweets from my poor neighbours!


Uni Day #2

Coat - Zara
Blouse - H&M
Fur Scarf - H&M
Trousers - Asos 

Today is the typical british devious weather! It may of looked sunny outside, but it was bitter cold.
I had my first exam of the year today, so I wanted to be comfortable and cosy rather than anything to fashionesta! I didn't realise how fashion universities are quite like catwalk shows! My first thought of Uni was hoodies and leggings- comfy clothes. But since starting I haven't even batted an eye lid at comfy clothes You really have to make some kind of effort or your stand out like a sore thumb!
I love this coat I did a winter coat post here, It's super warm and cosy! I've kept my make-up simple today as I know when i'm nervous I rub my eyes, i'd come out looking like a panda!
I absolutely love this fur scarf! which I purchased with Georgia (GLAM), I wont say to much as i'm going to a more in-depth post tomorrow on it!
Hope you enjoyed your day!


Sunday Treats #2

Last week my Sunday treat was food-based, this week I've treated myself to hair products.
I'm a firm believer that if your hair and make-up is nice on the outside, you're feel just as good on the inside. I have loved REDKEN products for many years, from when I worked in a salon as a Saturday girl. I used to love how the shampoos would smell and there glossy after affect.
I chose the smooth formula as my hair is quite damaged from colour dyes and heat styling and the conditioner contains heat protection from styling.
The products weren't cheap but I think as REDKEN is a very respectable brand it's worth the extra cash.
Once I have been using this shampoo  & conditioner combo for a respectable time I will do a full and honest review.
I hope you have treated your self this weekend!


Mid Week Meal

Chicken wrapped in parma ham, with philadelphia cheese
A really quick and really tasty mid-week meal. Yes Even if you're a student you need to eat well and semi-healthily.
This is a cheap dinner that  you're enjoy a whole lot more than beans on toast trust me!

What your need:

For the chicken:
  • Depending on how many your cooking for or how hungry you are, i'd say 1 chicken breast per person. Most supermarkets sell chicken breast in packs of two so you could make two and freeze one for later.
  • A pack of parma ham (tesco currently have an offer on a six pack for £2)

  • Philadelphia cheese

For the potatoes:

  • New potatoes
  • 1 to 2 cloves of garlic
  • Italian herbs

  • Vegetable oil 
  • Salt & pepper
Add a bit of veg (i've added carrots and broccoli) 


Get cooking...

Pre-heat oven at 180.C
  1. Wash your potatoes in cold water and put them into a pan. Boil on a low heat to start cooking.
  2. Whilst the potatoes are slowly boring, cut up carrots and broccoli and place to the side for later.
  3. Once the potatoes have been on the hob for about 10 mins drain the water and place on a baking tray. Cover potatoes in Vegetable oil, salt and pepper. Crush the garlic and roughly spread over the potatoes. Finally add a sprinkle of italian herbs and place in the oven.

4.     Put scores into the chicken breasts and put a table spoon full of Philadelphia on each chicken          breast and spread over with knife. Then wrap each chicken piece with a ration & and half of parma    ham. Then place in the oven with the potatoes and set the timer for 25-30mins.

5.     Whilst the Chicken etc is cooking, place the chopped vegetables in the microwave for 5mins. Once your chicken and potatoes are almost cooked put the vegetables in for a further 3minutes.

6.         Your Chicken should be a nice golden colour with a slightly crispy palma ham.

Uni Day #1

Jacket - Urban Outfitters
Leggings- Asos
Top-Topshop (via Ebay)
Hat- Asos

This is a first of my Uni Day outfit posts. I will be posting every Monday, & Friday on my Uni outfits (whilst in term time). I am trying to find a posting schedule that actually works with my busy life and hopefully having a plan will make my blog a lot more consistent. You might of also noticed quite a few changes to my blog layout etc i'm still trying to find a style that i'm happy with, but good news is, is that I think i've finally sort of made up my mind. 
Outfit breakdown
I paired this outfit with my Topshop studded boots, but I think this would also look good with Doc Martins. 
This is the first time i've really owned a beaning/boyfriend hat as normally they make my head look very pea-like but I think this ASOS beanie works well. These are my second pair of leather look leggings as I loved my first pair from ASOS but they were just too tight and sadly fell apart on the bottom. After buying this pair I really do prefer these, they are high-waisted so I wont have to keep yanking them up, as this particular material slips on your skin and they slip down quite a lot. The leather look is also a lot more expensive looking on these leggings rather than looking to bin baggy they actually look like a PU/leather fabric.
This military style jacket is from a couple of years ago when military was in fashion before. This jacket is just one of my grab and go's as it just contrasts with pretty much most outfits. However I am looking for a new winter through on jacket in the parker style, is there any brands or shops you can suggest?


Sunday Treats #1

This is a first of an every sunday food based treat! I've recently started experimenting with cooking foods rather than just the hoops on toast student dinner.

On a University outing I discovered the sweetest and twee magazine-Betty. You can found out about this magazine through this link bettymagazine. Within the summer 2012 issue there was the perfect Buttermilk Pancakes. 

I wanted to share this recipe with you as I tried it with vanilla ice-cream and raspberries this morning & it was such a warm-me-up morning treat.  Enjoy...
