$ Friday's work OOTD! (FOTD too)

Hello friends :)

I have not done a OOTD for a long time... if ever?

But today, I'm wearing a few new things which I love and made me feel special so I thought I'd share my outfit with you.

It's getting cold in London now, and usually I stick to the block colour of black, but it seems to be too heavy since Autumn has only JUST started so I picked up a few navy blue items to keep me warm but still give me the colour!

I always look over the sea of grey and black suits as I hop onto the tube every morning and it is so depressing! Luckily my work (which I'm not willing to disclose for personal reasons) has a casual dress code :)

So the new items include:

Boots!!! EEE I've never had any ankle length boots and these just cut my calf a little (probably because I'm so short!) but they're leathery and have antique-y silver studs down the sides with a slight ruffly edge too!
(£29.99 from H&M)

Navy blue cardigan which shows off a v-neck and a long-ish body! Again, its long on me, but would probably be normal for those around an average height XD Its quite a thick knit but is very nice quality and won't go bobbly, if you know what I mean! I feel this might just be the item that takes me through to winter, before I start living in hoodies again!
(£7.99 from H&M)

Then we have the new jacket! Which I LOVE! Its got that blazer style, but made of a thick jersey-like material so its soft to wear but warm too and still holds a nice shape. It's called the Ponte Rider Jacket and I bought it from the New Look website. I'm glad it fits me well :) There are two other colour options aswell - in black and a dark beige colour.Align Centre(£24.99 from New Look)

My jeans are straight leg Levi's which I got a while ago for £15 from a Levi outlet store and my yellow top (if you can see it) is actually a Minnie Mouse print one from H&M kids LOL!

My FOTD is quite simple today.
Primer - Michael Todd Instant Fill Primer
Foundation - Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation sample
Powder - Maybelline Pure Mineral Foundation powder
Eyeshadows - E.L.F. Studio Eyeshadow in Amethyst, MAC Eyeshadow in a brown colour that I forgot the name of :P
Mascaras - Eyeko Big Eyes Mascara, Maybelline Lash Stiletto
Bronzer - The Body Shop Baked-to-last Bronzer in 01 Golden Bronze
Lipstain - Twilight Duwop Lip Venom (might do a review of this!)
Lipstick - The Body Shop Delipscious Sheer Lip Colour in 09 Sheer Pomegranate

And that's it really!
Oh, after uploading the piccies, I realise that I took them before I applied my lippie XD FAIL!

I was browsing The Body Shop website Wednesday and came across their New Autumn Trend collection. Can I just say, I thought these were out already so ran to the store that evening (as I was on Oxford Street meeting a friend for dinner) and hoped to pick up these two new Cheeek & Face Powder (yes it's spelled Cheeek with threee Es!) but they weren't there :( I am anticipating for them to come out though! The beautiful autumn leaf motif has me sold already and the colours do look beautiful!!

Here are some pictures that you might enjoy :)
mmm... pandan flavoured frog spawn drinky
Finished my first Battleships finally! (After reading the instructions again and properly lol! Haven't completed another since though D: )
Wednesday dinner with Carla! Check out her blog :)
I adore this polish. Not because of the way it looks, but because of the compliments I get from it everytime I have it on! This combo is DA BOMB!!
The undercoat is N.Y.C. Manhattan (I believe?) and the glitter is GOSH Rainbow. I think its a dupe for a Nfu-Oh polish.
How gorgeous does the sun look? This was on Wednesday morning on Putney Bridge as I waiting for the bus to work :)
And believe it or not, this is the Thames River from the same bridge, same morning! Not a cloud in the sky :)
I went to the Hummingbird Bakery on Portobello Road (as this is near where I work) and picked up these gorgeous hand design cupcakes as a treat for my housemates! Expensive, but yummy!!!

So how've you been?

Love love and picturelove!!
Toffee xXxXx
