Tesco cupcakes - yesss Tesco's now sell proper nice cupcakes. As I don't live in London or a big city there is no where to buy nice cupcakes near me. I get very jealous when other bloggers post pictures of cupcakes - now I can do my own. My girls went mad when I made them wait for me to take photos before they could eat them. They come in boxes of four! This is a red velvet one and whilst perhaps not as tasty as freshly baked ones from a bakery, it was very delicious.
African Prints in Autumnal Colours - My new skirt from ASOS Africa has arrived and I am very pleased with it. If you haven't yet checked out ASOS Africa, it is well worth a look for a great way to add some colour to your autumn wardrobe.
Berry Lipsticks - I love Chanel lipstick and my new Rouge Noir lipstick was just a little treat that goes perfectly with most evening outfits and some neutral coloured ones too. I always think that it is the finishing touches that make an outfit.
Getting Organised - I have been wanting a way of organising my necklaces for a long while now and this hook from a local boutique (you can order them online from Bombay Duck) was just the ticket.
A New Coat - I have finally made up my mind on a winter coat and got it just in time for the cold weather . I opted for this Maison Scotch coat which is available from either Coggles or ASOS. It is a really nice cut but a slightly thinner fabric than I expected so I ordered a slightly bigger size so that I can fit a cashmere cardi underneath if the weather is really cold. I haven't managed to take any pictures of me wearing it yet but will do soon.
Whilst all of these things are lovely autumn treats, what I have really been wanting for some time now is a little bit of time and space to be creative, this would be the best treat. Here are the creative things that I have been wanting to do.
Shorten my vintage kimono jacket
Make a collar with some scraps of lace I have left over
Customise some secondhand knitwear with lace, scraps of fabric and beads.
Take some amazzing autumn photos with lots of beautiful leaves
Redesign my workspace - it is such a mess at the moment and needs to be more of a creative space
I love cooking. Cupcakes, soup, great big roasts, curry I just need a bit of time to get a glass of wine, out on some music and get cooking.
I am making it a priority to have some me time and do these things in November and December.
What are your favourite autumn treats and how do you get creative?
