These are a few of my favourite things - October Favourites

I actually can not believe we are so close to the end of the year already, it's literally flew by! 
Halloween is this weekend, then Christmas! ahh! 

Anyway, I thought I would post about a few things I have been loving this month.
First up, THESE Topshop bargains!
Last week I went out for a little afternoon shop, not for anything in particular (you know those day's that turn into you seeing all sorts you don't need& before you know if your hands are full&bank balance ran dry..) but Topshop was having a huge mid-season sale so I thought why not take a peek. 
I spotted these pink beauties and felt like it was shoe fate when they were actually my size! 
Wait for the best bit.. These only cost me £10!! Such a great bargain.

Next, Alexa Chung app - Villoid! 
Now of course anything Alexa does is pretty much perfect but her app, I honestly can't explain my love for it. 
Super simple to use & gives me so much inspiration for outfits in no time at all. 
If you don't know what Villoid is yet, imagine Pinterest and Polyvore tied together/ if those two websites had a child.. 

Basically you create boards with images, clothing items, accessories etc. and then save them to your personal profile which other users can see& you can also share them via. twitter, instagram etc. 

Here's a couple of style boards I have created so far.. 

You can also buy the exact items directly through the app, so if you're anything like me be sure to keep your bank card out of reach.. 
...There's only so many times I can swoon over Shrimps fur before I crumble!
Also I tweeted about putting together this post& Alexa favourited it, how amazing!? 
I feel like my 14 year old self would be dying over it nevermind me right now at 22!

Moving on, a shop I have been loving this month is Paperchase, seriously from their Christmas decorations to cute funny postcards, Paperchase is like heaven at the minute! I picked up these three decorations last week.. a pineapple, a Christmas ostrich and angel sausage dog, halo included of course! All their Christmas decorations are on 3 for 2 also which basically means you get a free one so why not buy more.. 
(that's a question I'm asking myself at the moment, as I'm sure I'll be heading back soon). 
I also have a photo wall in my bedroom which has lots of mix matched frames filled with photo's, quotes etc. so I wanted to find some quirky little postcards that I could pop into a few empty frames I had.. Ta Daa! 
Literally the coolest postcards ever, &they are super cheap too!
"you looked taller on tinder"
"real unicorns have curves"

My very last favourite for this month is my Alex Monroe Bumble Bee Necklace, this is very much a favourite for me every single day not just this month. I bought it at the very beginning of the year using money I got as Christmas gifts from family. I went for the rose gold version just so it could suit my everyday jewellery a bit more, so far the chain has started to go a bit dis-coloured, but after almost a year of wearing it every single day I can't really complain. 
I love how the little bee adds just enough dainty detail to any outfit! 

Have you found something new that you're particularly loving this month? Or even an old fave? 
Let me know, I hope you're all well. 


  1. ADORE those topshop shoes, I cannot believe they were only £10 they remind me of the ASOS ones I was lusting after recently. I have been loving Villod, it fills me with such inspiration and I can't believe Alexa favourited your tweet, I would die!x

  2. Doesn't Alex Monroe just make the most amazing jewellery? I have a daisy ring which I wore today in fact- I love it! And those Topshop shoes are to die for, so amazing <3
