things I am coveting: october

1. I already have a pair in this style but with cats on, but as soon as I saw these Dino Snore PJs from Topshop, I knew I had to have them.  The bottoms are dinosaur print, how cool is that?!

2. I can barely remember what it smelled like because it's been so long, but I've been wanting a November Rain candle from Yankee Candle for months.  Now that it's officially autumn, I've really been wanting this in my home.  I can't really describe a smell I can't remember well, but it reminded me exactly of a crisp autumn evening, maybe after a day of rain.

3. With the weather getting chillier and me having baths more often, Ceridwen's Cauldron luxury bath melt from Lush has been calling my name.  Everything in it just sounds wonderful - oats, cocoa butter, lavender oil, elderflowers, daisies, walnut oil and much more.

4. Another thing I've been wanting for a while are these Tan & Brown Ankle Boots from New Look.  They just look so perfectly autumnal, and also pretty unique.

5. This Caramel Faux Fur Short Jacket from Next is also really, really cute.  It's actually quite light weight and a perfect autumn cover-up for days when it's chilly but not quite wrap-up-or-you'll-go-numb chilly, so it's much more versatile than my fur coats.  Plus it's so soft.  If only.

6. I've been dying for a nice plum/berry/red wine coloured lipstick for autumn and Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Venom (available from Debenhams) just looks perfect.  I had wanted a MAC lippy for the longest time but going cruelty free sadly means that dream will never come true, but UD's lipsticks look pretty perfect too.

plant baby update #1

In my last life update post, I mentioned my little plants and shared photos of them only a day or so after I planted them.  It's been over one month since I planted them now, and this is how they're looking:


Quite a difference if I do say so myself!  I'm a very proud plant parent right now, plus since I took these photos a few days ago they've actually grown even more!
