oversize


^ the leaves started falling on my head at this point (I'm not just pouting!) ^





// Coat- Topshop (old)/ Shirt- New Look/ Jeans- F&F/ Brogues- John Lewis/ Hat- Boohoo//

Hey Lovelies! Yesterday I went for a walk in Jesmond Dene, it was the perfect opportunity for a little Autumnal themed outfit post. I'm so happy with how bright these photos have turned out. Unfortunately as Chris is away my little brother has been doing my photos and well he hates it... Maybe you can tell?? 
I bought these brogues for work but I wanted to do something completely different with them for a casual option. They completely clash with my boyfriend jeans/ oversized coat which I think is really cool. I do look like I've just thrown this outfit together which I'm not sure about! The thing I like about blogging is you get the chance to really experiment with what you're wearing and can look back to see what does or doesn't work. 
I hope you're having a lovely day. Much Love xxx

Halloween goth make up





Hey Guys! I'm in a really Autumny Halloweeny mood today so I've gone for the first of a few Halloween make up looks! I've gone for a generic purple goth look, it could work with a witch/cat/pixie costume or whatever you wish really. I haven't used any blush or bronzer at all with this look. The only contour product I've gone for is a really white concealer across my cheek and brow bones to give that really dead look. My eyes were done using my MAC A passionate quest quad palette. I absolutely love this palette, the shades are just perfect for Autumn too. I've also used a bit of this on top of my lipstick to brighten it up a little. I've got Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 04 on my lips which is blended into black eyeliner in the corners. I didn't own a black lip liner- surprisingly! My lashes are Eyelure 156s but they were a really really old pair so I've thrown them out now. They're a really good set for an alternate look though! I'm going to try and get into town tomorrow and purchase some face paints and special effects stuff to do something a little more gory- woohoo! I've had my hair done today, gone a little ombre. Let me know what you think! 
Love Eleanor xxx

Inspiration Alexander Wang Spring/ Summer 2015












//Images from Dazed and Confused and Style//

Hello Lovelies! Right I know that I'm a little late posting this and all that stuff but I am massively in love with Alexander Wang's S/S 15 collection. I mean who doesn't want the perfect ratio of sports inspired pieces and ultra modern tailoring? It's right up my street. I'd just like to take a moment to appreciate his menswear collection too-   I can't get over how much I love their boots. If you're wondering why I always have menswear in my inspirational posts I will tell you.... 1. I work with menswear so I'm 'supposed' to think: "oh what would I wear if I was a man..." 2. I feel that it gives you a better understanding of fashion to take a look at what's going on for both sexes and 3. I don't know if you've noticed but I sort of like dressing like a boy.

Anyway I'm off to Newcastle tomorrow for a whole week Woohoo!

Have a great evening/ day...Much love xxx

blue jeans











// Top- F&F/ Dungarees- River Island (old) / Shoes- Primark// 

Hey Guys! It's Friday! I'm off home on Sunday morning for a whole week and am feeling very very pleased about that.
I wore this outfit a few days back, inspired by some street style I saw in Vogue- possibly? I'm always looking out for inspiration and it was pretty cool that this all came together. I bought this top from F&F at Tesco for a stupidly low price but it's one of those items that is just incredibly versatile. I never usually shop at supermarkets for clothing so this was a pleasant surprise! I do have trouble styling my dungarees/ overalls for Autumn but I think I've done alright, keeping it simple. 
Hope you guys are looking forward to the weekend too! Eleanor xxx

i say ya kill your heroes







//Jacket- Primark/ T shirt- Republic (old) / Skirt- New Look (old)/ Shoes- Primark/ Necklace- H&M/ Hat- Boohoo// 

Hello Everybody! I was going to upload a different outfit of the day (from yesterday) but I wore this today and really liked it so why not?? I came across this bomber jacket in Primark when I tried but (majorly) failed to go work clothes shopping. It was just sitting on a rail of new stock ready to go out and I was just like yes minnnnne. I think it cost about £15 and it was a case of love at first sight if I'm quite honest. The girl at the till was also in love with it so I feel that I made the right decision. I've been unsure how to style it for a while so not to look too transgender chavvy but when I got dressed today Chris was very happy. You always know when you're onto a winner if a boy compliments your outfit as it means you actually look like a female (this doesn't often happen  to me). I'm also obsessed with my necklace which I picked up last minute in H&M, it dresses any outfit up without looking too glam. 
I'll probably do a blog post on my ombre lips too, along with some Halloween make up ideas. I'm massively looking forward to this. BEST. HOLIDAY. EVER. 
Have a great day! Eleanor xxx

they gonna see us from outer space






// Leather jacket- Topshop (old)/ Jumper- Mango/ Kickflare trousers- Asos/ Monk shoes- Office/ Scarf- Urban Outfitters (old)/ Bowler hat- Primark// 

Hey Lovelies! I'm uploading this outfit of the day very very late... I wore this to visit Chris's family in Edinburgh- well Portobello which is like Edinburgh but on the coast and is really beautiful. That was on last Sunday?... Better late than never right? 
I wanted to wear these kickflares from Asos and my outfit was basically born from there. I think I've kind of ended up looking like a 60s beatnik which I'm alright with! I've been wanting to wear this bowler hat again for ages but it just hasn't beaten my fedora until now. My jumper only cost a tenner from Mango and comes in various colours so I might collect them all (geez I'm becoming my mother!). Mango's one of those stores I always feel like I should shop at more as it's got some really great finds and is really reasonably priced. Anyway enough of this...
Have a great day! Eleanor xxx

clinique instant lift for brows






^naked eyebrows^


Hey everbody! I've been such a rubbish blogger these past few weeks, I haven't even been reading anyone's posts either but after I'm happy to get back into my blog.
I did a huge make up shop when I was paid at the end of last month, this was one of the products I was particularly keen to buy. It was sold out online but I managed to get my hands on it at work- it was on price match too so I got it for a bargainous price. I always have problems with brow products; I think it's because mine are so dark and thick (you can see what I mean in my naked brow photo) so whenever I try to fill them in it just looks too much. I look like some dodgy chav in other words... This product really works for me though. I went for the dark brown shade on the Clinique lady's advice and it doesn't look too heavy which is great. It comes with a pencil side and a highlighter side which I use on my brow bone and across the top of my eyebrows. In reality the highlighter isn't as bronze as it has come out in the photo and is more of a pinky rose gold colour- which looks really lovely. I think I will be repurchasing this, it's definitely worth the money (£16.50), although I still haven't found my perfect product. I've also used Rimmel's Brow this way gel on top of this, which I really love for £3.99! Let me know what you would recommend for eyebrows? 

I hope you're all enjoying the weekend! I'm off to get dressed for a night out, have a great day! 

Much Love xxx
