Today is the most beautiful cold, crisp, blue sky kinda day. I feel like I turn into a bit of a hippy on days like this, like I have become 'one with nature'. I'm lucky enough to live near a lot of beautiful villages and countryside where the smells and sights in Autumn are just the best thing ever. The trees go all golden, and in the evening you can smell peoples wood burners blowing smoke out their chimneys. Ooh crikey, I've got a warm fuzzy feeling just writing this! May I dare to say... I might even feel a bit festive!!
Is it too early to pop a bit of Slade on Spotify?!
Judging from this and my last post, I have become quite fond of camel jumpers. Very big camel jumpers at that. This Asos one really tickles me' fancy. On the website it's worn as a dress,  which looks gorgeous on the model, but I decided to pair with denim and jackets for a bit more of a winter layered look. I think it may be a while before I get my pins out again!
I hope whatever you're doing on this beautiful day, that you are having a blast.

Today feels super Autumny, and this time of year I love nothing more than a super big jumper and a constant flow of tea. In my favourite mug, may I add! I'm a bit obsessed about anything with an initial on at the moment, to the point I've been tempted to buy some actual light up initials... but maybe that's a bit much, I don't want my living room to look like a wedding reception.
I do apologise for the nesty hair & my pet hate of sunglasses indoors! Who do I think I am, Neyo? This was though, for the sole purpose that I am having a no make-up day to rest my weary lashes. Something I try to do on my days off. I also try not to do anything with my hair to give it a rest, hence the 'hun' giving the front of my hair a break from straightening. My hair is in a dreadful condition at the moment, I really need to find a miracle potion to revive it... so any suggestion would be most welcome!

Today is the boyf's birthday, so yesterday eve we went out for a cheeky burger. Although saying that, I'm a wheat intolerant vegetarian and all round awkward eater, so no burgers for poor old Helen. I did however, find a tasty salad and the most delicious courgette fries I've ever had... (the only ones I've ever had, but still delicious)
I thought I'd show you a little snippet of what I wore to dinner. I'm not usually a warehouse shopper, but I love this cardi, and anything else with a tie belt waist for that matter. It's my current obsession.
On another note, I need to find a new place to take my photos. I'm very much over the gross mossy floor at my new house. God damn fungus.

I'm back blogging after the most stressful few weeks ever! I moved house, got a new job & had my driving test all within about 3 weeks... and for a sensitive soul like me, that is a hell of a lot of nerves & tears. My nails are also about 3 inches shorter than they were,  but I've done it now! I passed my test, my new house is starting to feel more like a home and I'm feeling proud! This all means I am back to blogging and illustrating, both of which I have missed like a left arm.
For my first post back, I wanted to show you this little cold shoulder number from Hidden Fashion. It was perfect for a sunny autumn day like today, when you just don't know what to wear. Last week some days I was in skirts and sandals, and other days I was wearing knitwear and boots. It's such a hard season to dress for and I just want it to be oversized coat and chunky boot weather now. So I think this sort of outerwear is just the right piece for this queer old British weather. I feel like a bit of a grandma about the fact that I have just written a whole paragraph about the weather. I also brought some Horlicks on my weekly shop the other day. Maybe this is what turning 26 does to you. It's all down hill from here.
Also... when you click on the link for this duster, you literally will not believe the price of it. I couldn't!
It's so nice to be back!!!!

Sometimes, when it gets to this time of year, I um and ah about what sort of coat I want for Autumn/Winter. This year, I couldn't be more sure/obsessed about a belted wool coat. Oatmeal, camel, mink, grey, nude... I want them all! These are a few of my top picks, although I am yet to order one. I feel like I'm holding out for one that makes my jaw drop when I see it. It will happen.
