September Favourites I Photo Diary

Keeping up with the monthly favourites has been really difficult to do and if you have just read my brand new post about my month then you will know I just recently lost my Grandma. So things have been tough and we have her funeral coming up shortly which will be sad and happy because we get to remember how great her life was with her favourite people and now she is reunited with my Grandad who's one year anniversary is coming up in the end of October. So with this post I chose some of my favourite tumblr sourced pictures above and as you can see from them I went for a sophiscated, classy vibe but by the end I went for a coffee inspiration post with the loveliest of glasses ever! Tumblr has the best photos if you are feeling like you need some inspiration they are great. I would reccommend it.. I find it great and I love posting them on my Instagram too. 

Who loves the red blouse and white spots with the black ankle boots?!


The cutest outit ever and I love it so much! 

Sorry about this post being rather short but at this sad time that me and my family are going through I thought I would do a photo diary of my favourites.

Reflecting on September

September, September, September.. how fast have you come and go? The weather has defintely changed and Auturm is pretty much hear now. Waking up to those dark rainy mornings, feeling chilly and the thought of having another pair of shoes with you incase you get drenched? Well that has what has happened to me recently that is for sure. The trees are starting to change colour and the leaves are falling, the scarfs, hats, gloves and jumpers are coming out and to be honest it does feel nice to be wearing cosy warm clothes again. Halloween is coming and so is Christmas! This month has been a funny old month filled with ups and downs but you have to keep going. I do not have a lot to say in this post apart from due to personal reasons my blog has been forgotten about this month and I have only published one blog post so far, I am planning to do a few more as soon as I but I have been so busy doing other things and being there for the family. It is very hard to fit it in but I hope soon things will get back to normal, you will just have to bear with me.

September is the birthday month for my Grandma, Grandad and sister. Sadly we lost my Grandma who died on Thursday 21st September which actually was her birthday.. can you believe that!? It was something that happened and we had no control over it. It happened so fast and something that should not of happened because she did not deserve to die like that. I hate you cancer for coming back 7 years later and nastier than before. At least now Grandma is not in any pain and reunited with my Grandad in heaven. We both miss you so much, you were both incredible and life will not be the same without you. Thank you for being the best you could be, forever grateful and will always have the memories and videos and the love till I die. You will never be forgotten, how could you possibly be? And as you both used to say.. now we pass the batton on..

Grandma Betty this is for you.. so I hope you are listening
Thank you for everything, thank you for being the most amazing Grandma, mum and mother in law and friend. I lost not just a Grandma but a best friend and a second mum. One day I will tell my children all about you and how lucky I was to have a Grandma like you. You are one in a million. Now go and tell Grandad the exact same.

You Say Goodbye and I Say Hello

Auturmn is fast approaching and it is pretty scary to think that Summer is pretty much over its hard to believe. Summer comes by so fast and before you know it your entire wardrobe changes and you start bringing out jumpers, trench coats and boots. I love this time of the year so much as the leaves start changing and falling off the trees and its an exciting time of the year as Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas all seem to happen straight after the other - you really do not have time to breathe. One thing that I dislike about this time of the year is the transitioning of your makeup. So maybe its just your lipstick or eyeshadow that plays a massive part in that and it annoys me so much when this happens as because I am blonde I really do not suit dark lipsticks... they are not me and just do not suit my hair colour, skin tone.. it just is not for me. I prefer pinks and peach colours. However I do love 'Velvet Teddy' by Mac Cosmetics which is a defintely a lipstick which I love.

A few weeks agoI just decided to have a play around with some old lipsticks of mine and I came across a Chanel lipstick (see above pictures) which gave me the Auturmn/Winter vibes and when I applied it to my lips I was not sure what to think to be honest but I was very surprised when I had a look at the photos I took and it didn't look too dark. I would wear this lipstick on an evening personally, it is not a lipstick I would wear during the day. I love Chanel lipsticks so much, they are rather expensive but just look amazing and are great. The one I am wearing was actually a Christmas present from my parents a couple of years ago but after writing this post I feel like I love it even more than I did when I first got it. I think it goes well with my David Bowie t shirt but now that Auturmn clothes are slowly making their way into the shops I am rather excited to find the perfect jumpers to wear with this lipstick. It would be such a great combination and just an excuse to wear it again.

I also wanted to aplogise for the lack of posts so far, I know its only the 9th of September but I have been pretty busy this week and so the blog has taken a bit of a back seat but don't worry things will be back as normal very soon.

Finding Inspiration

I sometimes feel uninspired and occassionaly have those days where I have to think about 'what I am going to wear today' and it can be hard because you just look through your wardrobe and think what can I wear today that would good in a blog post so I can talk about it my own way and just put a little twist on it. I have been feeling like that recently and to be honest that does not happen a lot and usually I can go to my wardrobe and just know what I am going to wear today. I am sure we all have those days were we feel uninspired with ourselves and sometimes it just takes a new little piece of clothing to completely change your overview on your clothes. At the moment I have seen some gorgeous clothes in the shops which I am dying to get my hands which will make my Auturm/Winter attire great again. I love buying new jumpers to wear and to start looking at the boots again.. Topshop and Zara have some amazing things in at the moment! I am one of those unfortunate people who would find it hard to shop online because I am tall and I need to try clothes on first to see how they fit, especially jeans/dresses and skirts. If you are tall yourself you will understand exactly what I mean.. you just cannot get away with shopping online unless you know they will defintely fit right. For me, I just find it 10 times easier to walk into a shop try on what I want too and go away feeling like a happy girl. 

Social media can be so intense at times and as much as I love Instagram and Twitter it is really nice to take a step back and sit back and relax. It can be so over powering and sometimes I feel like I am comparing myself to other people and then I think to myself 'why am I doing this Charlotte' I do not do this.. I need some time to refresh, take my mind of blogging and Instagram and realise that there is so much more than social media and my phone going off all the time. I believe every person needs to do this, even if its just a couple of days as it can be too much and it is nice to go back to the days when social media did not control your life. The best thing about having these breaks is that you come back not comparing yourself to other people and other bloggers and you can just focus on you and your own blog and it does not matter if they have more followers than you or if their blog is more successful than you. At the end of the day everyone is different and unique and I am proud to be and proud of my blog and Instagram.
