A few bits and pieces

  I was away for the day and bought a few things with some birthday money. Thought I'd show you what I got. Basically although I've started up a blog that's going to include a lot of beauty and fashion, I'm not very comfortable with taking photos of myself. I'm very camera shy so I'm avoiding it for as long as I can. Don't know what it is, I don't mind other people taking pictures but I can't bring myself to hold a camera infront of my face haha.
Long gone are the days of bebo - taking about 100 pictures of yourself, just to upload one as your profile picture. Even worse were the people who took 100 pictures and uploaded every single one of them!! But since then I don't take pictures of myself .. now it just feels weird.

So to avoid outfit or makeup posts..

 I got a Vera Moda aubergine coloured jacket. Love the colour of this coat. It's one of my favourites for Autumn, sure who doesn't love this colour?! It will add something to my all black outfits, but seeing as its quite dark it's not too much out of my comfort zone. It's a different choice for me, most of my jackets are big, oversized and long, where as this is short and fitted. Thought it would be nice to change it up for once. I got it for €44 which I thought was great for a winter coat.

 These shoes area also quite different for me. I'm one for wearing boots most of the time. My only flat casual shoes are two pairs of converse, but when I saw these I was drawn to them! I love the pattern and how the material seems to be quite waterproof. I'm not sure if I like the gold chain, I was thinking of getting a matte black nail varnish and going over it. Think that would be much more me!
Got them in River Island - here.

Rush. This is one of my favourite movies. It's based on a true story. It's about the life and the formula 1 careers of Niki Lauda  and James Hunt. I find it so captivating, and well, things always get seriously emotional. If you're put off because it centres around formula 1, don't be. If you havn't seen it, please watch it!! If you don't like it well then, I'm so disappointed in you!!

This canvas, a bit of an unusual purchase..for me anyway. I love how it's Banksy style. And I mean, a doughnut van getting a police escort, enough said.
