10 Day Challenge - 3

I'm really sorry with all these boring 10 Day Challenges, I started it and thought it would be fun and it isn't really. 
It's more like homework.  So not fun. 

Plus it's just filled up my blog with these things since I've not really had thetime to do fashion-y stuff recently.  

So overall just a bit grumbly about this. 

Hmm, 3 films at least this is easy:

10 Day Challenge - 4

4 Books, yay!   

1 - Les Miserables
I'm currently reading Le Mis, and it is pretty hard slog indeed.  Getting there though, I will write a review when I'm done. 

2 - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland 
Probably my favourite book of all time! 

3 - The Book Thief 
I love this book, so so amazing.  Love it. 

4 - The Picture of Dorian Gray 
Wilde's narrative is so witty and great, this is my favourite novel of his but I think his plays are so good.

10 Day Challenge - 5


This is a very appropriate time for me to do the food day because I've been at home for the past few days and believe me you can tell!  
I have just finished off two peanut butter cookies I made yesterday, straight after a Subway. 
Bad times man, bad times. 

Let's do this:

My Summer Shop in Germany

This is my mini summer shopping haul from when I was in Germany. 

Apologies for the mis-matched filters - photos were taken in my hotel at IG quality.  My instagram is liquidgrainofficial if you want :)  

So I bought my new HUGE sunglasses.  
They are big.  They are two-toned.  
They are good, okay? 

I also bought a summer straw fedora. 
It's really cool with a nice colourful thread running through it.  

While I was there I also got a couple of linen tees for wearing over things.  Just for chucking them over swims and dresses :) 


10 Day Challenge - 8

This is me back from my German travels and I am so tired.  And cold, it is pretty cold over here.  

My Dad is actually snowed in!  Everywhere in Wigtonshire and Northern Ireland just looks so horrible and euuugh. 

Let's do this- 8 Fears.

10 Day You Challenge

This 10 Day challenge seems to be floating around the blogesphere recently so thought I would give it a go too: 

1 - I am crazy OCD.  Pretty much everything has a "system" and hell hath no fury like a woman's system disrupted. 

Slutty Brownies Time! (no oreos version)

So good! 

Today I took a notion to do some baking.  And since I have been home which means no goodies in the house (we just demolish them the second they come in the house) I went for the most delicious thing I could think of... 

but an edited version without oreos since I don't like them. 

Here we go:

OOTD Black Milk Glass Owl Dress

Today's OOTD. 

The Black Milk Glass Owl Dress has been getting a few outings lately.  

Still loving it and how the colours look so nice. 

But today I winter-ed it up with my gorgeous Jack Wills Cream Lambswool Cable Knit. The light jumper goes with the highlights at the bottom of the dress. 

So had a pretty busy errand day today and tonight I'm going to see my cousin who's just had a wee baby!  

I'm off, must do a proper shoot sometime

Best Buy - Boohoo Boots

All the B's! 

These bad boys are my current Best Buy!  

You can get them from Boohoo here.  
They were £40 and I was eyeing them up, so when I saw them go down to £25 I jumped on it! 

I would say they fit slightly big, so that's useful for fitting in insoles / big socks etc. 

I really love these boots for so many reasons.

For me the studding craze will never end.  So studding boots seems like a natural progression which should be commended.  
Plus they look like the ever coveted Jeffrey Campbell Ash boots- smexy but expensive

- Really tough 
I'm talking proper winter tough boots.  We've had snow this week and this has been a god send when I don't want to wear wellies.  They have awesome grip and are waterproof. 

Overall I really love them and would recommend them.  They're comfy and good quality, especially for the price of them.  

Ooh and my horrid attempt at a Youtube review: 

Aah so awkward!

OOTD on a Wintery Morning

We had snow!  Like a lot of it.  
I avoided going out until 4.45 and it still looked like this...
So just a quick OOTD before I ran out of the house.  
Imagine this plus tweed hunting jacket, plus hunter wellies, plus fur hat.  Definitely a chilly day. 

I just wore:

I was wearing my Black Milk Glass Owl dress.  My first outing with the dress and I love it.  It's so flattering. 
Although I had actually forgotten how short the BM dresses were when I put this on.  Suddenly it was like BAM legs.  
But it's a nice dress, and the owl is placed so nicely on the waist that it really nips me in.  

That's all tonight!

OOTD BM Hackey Sacks


Featuring Black Milk Hackey Sacks 

Instagram = liquidgrainofficial

So this is the first time I have worn these, and I think I am now sold on them. 
I'm still a bit unsure because the material is super delicate.  I'm actually terrified of hurting it. 
Plus the material is weirdly stretchy so it can be a bit short.  
So hmm... 
But they do look amazing!  

So I kept the rest of my outfit pretty casual and toned down. 
Black chelsea boots. 
Black vest. 
Black cardi. 

That's all for today, just a quick post!

The Biggest Hair In The World

I know, when I said it was big I meant super big. 

This is just what I call "big hair"  not to be mistaken with "lion hair" which does come out occasionally.
