hello hello


so the other day I went to a pick your own farm for some pumpkin picking, so much more fun than just getting one from the supermarket, although I did that too! there were so many pumpkins, all sorts, and an awesome trailer stacking them high









these three were taken home 


 below is a picture of me with a pumpkin I did some awesome baking with and a photo of me when I was about three with a pumpkin my family grew. and the other day I went out and got some awesome pumpkin decorations. pumpkins have always been fun, yay!

cooler months oversized jacket outfits


hello hello


I love this time of year: autumn leaves, great sunsets, fireworks but these things are outside and one thing I don't like about this time of year is the cold weather so… it means lots of jackets yay, I do like a jacket and I'm really liking oversized jackets like this cord one from  Asos that I have layered with some faux fur for extra toastiness!
a few days ago I had some time to have some fun with my dog Cory before walking into town and having a look around a local Homesense; an awesome home wear shop with great decorations for this time of year alright they have awesome stuff for any time if year!





above is another awesome jacket from Asos I love an oversized denim jacket and this one is black, which is great for dressing up or down. of course a snuggly scarf and go to topknot, tights and shorts is how I like to wear it. 
below is my old oversized denim jacket that I have layered with some faux fur and a long cardigan aaand about three other tops before going out to watch the carnival in town.
I love clothes and the colder weather means wearing even more of them in one go! 



love Alice
