Hello! I hope you've all been having a lovely week. I've been pretty busy, so sorry for the tiny delay in posting! Yesterday my main gal pal Gemma came up to visit for her 6-day Liverpool mini break, and we spent the evening uber-fan girling over Arctic Monkeys at the Echo Arena- who were a-mazing as per, definitely my fave band ever ever, Alex Turner is simply incredible.

Anyway, before I go off in a wave of crazy Alex Turner related nonsense, can you believe how Autumnal it's suddenly become? There's been a real bite in the air, and as you can see from above the leaves made a welcome backdrop for some pretty festive snaps! My outfit was pretty plain and simple, but perfect for the mid-season weather and I can guarantee you'll be seeing plenty more of this scarf, it's all I seem to wear with EVERYTHING from October-March, so I'll make a concise effort to spice it up a bit with other neck accessories.

I spent this afternoon in a gorgeous cafe/deli in Liverpool called The Quarter. From the looks of the menu it does the most lovely sounding Italian food (I've heard good things!) but could only manage a pot of tea and two (!) of their amazing warm raisin scones with cream and jam- perfect! It's fair to say I left feeling very satisfied! What have you all been up to this week?

  18. I am SO lusting over your tartan scarves! I went to Westfield Stratford City yesterday for the first time, which was pretty cool! Very big, was abit overwhelmed here haha. I had a very first outfit posts outside my house too, a lot better being photographed in crammed and dark bedroom..I am well pleased with my choice of outfit too-the combo of green and leopard. Yes really! They looked so well together. Oh happy days.

    By the way, I am hosting an amazing giveaway and I thought you'd be interested. Feel free to check in and see if you don't mind. Thanks in advance- http://theyoungbridgetjones.blogspot.com/2011/11/giveaway-my-memories-suite.html

  37. i was wondering what kind of topshop jeans you are wearing in this photo. i really struggle with topshop jeans as sometimes they go baggy after about an hour of wearing them and constantly need washing so that they fit again. the ones you are wearing on this photo though look perfect and i was wondering what type they are? love your blog btw!

    love from canada!
