Here is my wish list or what I’m currently craving for October! Sorry that this one is so delayed! This month has been hectic in terms of working, site troubles, illness and everything else, it’s only now that I’m getting around to making this wish list for you, but it’s better late than never right? I promise the one for November will be a lot earlier in the month!

So this post is a little different to what I usually do as I’ve put together a full designer wish list instead of using other products from the high street (this will please some fashion bloggers), so you can expect to find Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang and much more in my selection of 20 items! Most of these are from one of my favourite UK stores, Avenue 32, as they always have such great photos and an amazing selection of pieces! So, which do you like the most? I would love to know!

Tinkerbell

Happy early Halloween everyone! I truly do love any excuse to get dressed up and Halloween is one of the best of them. My family and I don’t celebrate the holiday, so that’s why I’ve shot these photos early and am sharing them with you now! I’ve always wanted to be Tinkerbell as she’s been my favourite Disney character since I was little, so when I found this gorgeous adult Tinkerbell costume on Sparkling Strawberries, I knew this was the one for me! I usually struggle finding a costume that looks really good and fits well, so it’s like a dream come true! I absolutely adore it!

So, I got dressed up early and headed out into the woods to shoot these photos with Adam. Yes, I did get some funny looks from passing hikers, one of them even said that he had never seen a real fairy in the woods before, ha ha, but hey, there’s a first for everything right? I also can’t get over the fact that I have a pair of wings so wearing this outfit to me was like being a kid in a massive candy store all over again! The jewels on the front of the dress are super pretty and the piping makes it act like a stretch corset all around, so it fits well too.

Last year you might remember that I dressed up as a cat, and I’m already deciding what I’m going to dress up as for Christmas and next Halloween! I can’t wait! What are you other fashion bloggers dressing up as? I would love to know what you think of my Tinkerbell costume though! Comment and let me know!

A very pretty Autumn flower and pumpkin display in town!

 

The clocks just went back last night for daylight savings time and this always leads me to so much confusion! I’m always left wondering what the actual real time is and getting hungry at the wrong current times, it’s a nightmare lol! Does anyone else dislike it when the clocks change?

Anyway, I’ve been taking some really pretty photos of scenery lately while being outside and as Autumn is so gorgeous, I had to share the shots with you! Of course I have also included some sneak peek outfit previews of ones I haven’t yet posted and more, so I would love to know which one you like most and I will post it next!

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I’ve been looking after my mum for the past 10 days as she’s been really ill, but she’s getting better daily and the anti-biotics are definitely working which is a relief, no more emergency doctors visits! I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who wished her well on Instagram and were asking if she had got better, that’s incredibly kind of you and very supportive, it means a lot to me.

I did take a few hours off yesterday though to recuperate and I went out to lunch with my dad and brother. I had a lovely day, despite it being freezing and me wearing a Christmas jumper when nobody else was, I really enjoyed it! Ha ha! So here are some of my latest Instagram snaps for you to see! I hope you will follow me on Instagram too as you do other fashion bloggers, I’m @LornaRaindrops on there! Let me know what you think of the photos!

#DUOBOOTTRIBE Bath Boutique Blogger Event

So on Thursday last week, I was invited to the DUO Boutique in Bath (which I am very fond of) for a unique blogger experience event, entitled #DUOBOOTTRIBE, to celebrate their new Autumn Winter collection and find out more about their boot tribes. I was there with about 13 other fashion bloggers, some very familiar faces like Tara from The Style Rawr, Gina from Bristol and Megan from Briar Rose. All of which I know very well from other events, but I was lucky to make a new friend as well, the lovely and adorable Michelle from Eclectic Threads. It was a fantastic event and I actually really enjoyed it! A lot of the times I don’t like parties or crowded situations, but this one was very low key, relaxed and enjoyable!

It started out with a talk about the different Boot Tribes that DUO have: ankle boots, calf boots and over the knee boots. The aim of the evening was to find out about the differences and of course, search for your perfect boot around the store. The best thing about DUO for me is the calf sizes. I have bigger feet (UK 6 or 7) and very tiny calves, so finding boots to fit my calves and foot size is impossible, they are always too big, but with DUO, they come in various widths so there’s a perfect size for me. This is why I own two other pairs from them! I had looked online prior to the event to choose the boots I loved and the ones I ended up going for are these gorgeous Dita grey over the knee suede boots! Aren’t they stunning? I tried on various other styles which you can see below, but I fell hard for these! I literally cannot wait to style them and show them to you!

You can see lots of photos from the event and it was so much fun, I actually stayed until the end which isn’t something I usually do! I’ve also got my eye on another pair of shoes, which also come in widths, so I might have to save a little for those ones! My mum who works with me on The Fashion Supernova also got to attend the event, so you can expect to see her side of the story and boot choices on there very soon! As well as a post on some of the latest styles! A huge thank you to DUO for organising this and inviting me, it truly was a wonderful evening! I hope you enjoy the photos, and yes, my concentration face in some of the photos is that of a slightly angry one, even though I wasn’t, I might need to work on that! Ha ha!
