Autumn is definitely my favourite season so I'm very pleased it's back! I love the gorgeous colours of the leaves scattered along the pavements and I really love that satisfying crunch when you step on them. I'm also a huge fan of wrapping up warm and feeling snug in chunky knits – I actually feel a bit lost in the summer and I never really know what to wear. If only it was a little bit easier to get out of my toasty bed on the chilly mornings!
I'm a bit late to the party with this one, but I've wanted ombre hair for a little while now. After a rather unfortunate home-dye attempt (which I promptly covered over with brown!) I had it done at a salon. Simon's brother Stuart is training to be a hairdresser so he did this for me on one of the 'model' nights. I absolutely love it and it only cost £12! Obviously it has damaged the ends of my hair a LOT, but I've been conditioning it a lot and also been using Moroccon Oil and it has noticeably improved.
It was my birthday at the end of October and it was really lovely to spend the day with my family – and being a little bit spoilt! Above is the sugary cake my mum made for me and an indulgent present from my flatmates (how gorgeous is Georgia's handwriting?).
I went back to Chichester twice this month and it was so nice to stay with my mum, her hyper dog and my favourite little cat again.
FANTASIA AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL
These tickets were one of my birthday presents from Simon and it was a really amazing performance. The perfect way to spend an evening.
