- My Top 3 Winter Coats...

With Winter upon us, I thought I'd show you my top 3 coats. Like many of you, I'm a huge fan of leather and duster jackets, but for this post I wanted to focus on cosy, thicker coats that will guard you from the cold. Read below to see the three types I think everyone should have in their wardrobe...

ONE: The Black Basic...
Think 'Little Black Dress' but the coat version. A black coat is a staple piece as it goes with absolutely everything! Mine's from Dorothy Perkins a few years ago.

TWO: The Parka...
A parka is perfect for those more casual days. Mine's recently from ASOS and is in the classic colour, it also has detachable lining for a lighter option.

THREE: The Other...
As well as the two previous basics, it's always good to have another option. I would say this is the place for a brighter coloured coat, but as you can see mine is grey. The faux fur is detachable so I prefer to wear it like this on more smarter days.

What is your Winter coat like? Let me know in the comments!

- What's on your Lips? ...

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick Starry Eyed 128, £4.99

This lipstick is probably the most underrated Autumn lip shade out there! In fact, I'm pretty sure I've never read a review or heard a beauty blogger mention this product before. Around this time last year, I was on the search for a dark berry/purple shade. I entered Superdrug without having any idea which one to get and left with this bad boy. Needless to say, it became my most worn lipstick last Autumn/Winter.

Starry Eyed has a rich, intense colour that lasts for hours. The formula of this lipstick is creamy and it glides on with ease. Does anybody else have this lipstick? If not, at only £4.99, it's an absolute steal!

What do you think of this shade?

- Monday Manicure...

I've recently been sporting white or black nails, so I decided to mix the two up and came up with this look. If you're pretty pants at nail art like me, then this is perfect as it's super easy yet looks really glamorous! You can obviously use different types of glitter or shimmer and switch up the colours if you want to; I'll be wearing my nails like this for Halloween!
