Jumper - H&M
Shirt (underneath) - Vintage
Shorts - Vintage DIY
Boots - Local shop years ago
Stole - Vintage 1930's
Earing - F21
Necklace - Topshop (Sale)

Hi guys!
Went out for lunch today with my boyfriend and son and wore this. I literally will die in this jumper, i cry when it's in the wash lol it's one of the best pieces of clothing i have ever brought, i really believe everyone should own a black jumper ;]
Before i get any hate mail yes this is a real fur stole, it is vintage and from the 1930's i personally have no problem with real fur i know people do and i totally understand, but I'm also wearing real leather shorts sooooo....
I know you cant see that well but the shirt under my jumper is another charity shop find, really love it as it's got a leopard/tiger print on it and its sheer ... win win!
On a different subject i really want to start filming YouTube vids but i don't really know what people would want to see/hear about so if anyone has any suggestions please feel free to let me :] i was thinking about my every day makeup or ootd i really don't know...Please help!

Gypsey Lovin'

 Top - Vintage
Shorts - F21
Tights - Primark
Boots - Primark
Necklace - Handmade

Hi guys.
I went on a bit of a mad one the other day hunting down goodies in Charity shops, one of my finds was this gorgeous little top i think it almost has a Indian/Gypsy feel to it. I really like it and for £2.00 you just cant go wrong. I actually brought quite a few things recently clothes wise from charity shops so i have quite a few posts coming up to show you the goodies i found. 
I really don't have an awful lot to say, my life is quite tame at the moment as myself nor my little have been very well, i think i mentioned in a previous post we both came down with ear infections simultaneously so were just getting over that. I'm still deaf in my left ear from the infection so hopefully no permanent damage. I'm off to the doctors tomorrow anyway to have it checked. 
Hope all is well
Love Steff

Plain Androgyny


 Shirt - Charity shop
Necklace - Dorothy Perkins sale
Leather leggings - H&M
Shoes - Primark
Lipstick - Sleek/Cherry

Hi guys.
Just a plain and simple outfit i wore out today.
Had to purchase some Christmas gifts for people but come back with only clothes for my son oops. Is anyone else buying early? i know ill still be out on Christmas eve with a massive list but i guess that's just part of Christmas.
I brought this shirt the other day form my local charity shop, seriously i always seem to come out with something when i go in there, it's a little gem, anyway it was only £1.00 so quite the bargain.
I'm still more or less living in these leather legging things, i wish they had them in my size in black as they just go with everything. 
I also brought myself a new Sleek makeup palette in Sunset as the colours are lovely (i may review that if anyone wants me too) and also a lipstick in Cherry from sleek as well which I'm wearing in the pictures but its much darker IRL. I love my dark lipstick such good shades about for Autumn.
So i hope your well.
Love Steff

Anti-Chafing gel as a Primer....Really


A bit of an unusual post but i had to throw my 2 cents in.
Lanacane Anti-Chafing gel obviously does what its meant to first of all but after hunting around everywhere for a cheaper foundation primer i came across this.
At first the idea of putting an anti-chaffing gel on my face was a tad weird but when i rubbed some onto my hand i fell in love. I can honestly say this is the best face primer i have ever used, leaves my face feeling smooth and velvety, ready to apply foundation.
You only need to use a pea size amount and just rub it in like you would any other primer.
Now i know this is not something new I've read so many posts and YouTube vids about this product all saying the same thing but i just had to give my view as i feel this is one product i will be repurchasing for a long time.
Also if your in America i think you have the same thing but called 'Monistat'.
Hope this helps anyone.

Close to you

Necklace - Dorothy Perkins
Jumper - H&M
Dress - Charity shop
Boots - NewLook (oldoldold)

Just a little post, i wore this the other day it took me back to my years spent being a goth and listening to the Cure. Smashing band. I might just slightly be in love with Robert Smith anyway i digress, i brought this dress in the charity shop the other day for £1.00 so cheap. It's a lovely heavy chiffon material buttons right down but Ive tied it in the middle so its shorter i really just bloody love it. 
I think my style for this winter is defiantly heading back to my goth roots.
Ohhhh also i have been looking at the same necklace in Topshop for ages i think it was about £15 ? but when i saw it in DP for only £2.00 i knew it was fate ;] love this cant wait to wear it with a white shirt under the collar.

Jumper - H&M
Shorts - Vintage DIY
Rings - EBay
Nails - Cosmic Black by Eyeko

Hey Guys.
It's been so long since i have posted an outfit, these dark nights starting at 4 o'clock are ridick hence why photos arnt great.
I picked up these shorts (well they were trousers but i made them into shorts) from the charity shop the other day for £1.00, couldn't resist studding the pocket either why i was on my DIY high, I'm so happy how they turned out. Another pair i shorts to add to my growing collection.
I also picked up a silky 'granny' shirt, again £1.00, but i just loved the collar so i thought i could make a collar. Taa-dahh there it is. I'm really happy with this also as i only cut the collar off and stitched two bits of black fabric either side, i think ill do a post about how i made it as my explanation was a bit poo just then.
Got some more rings on EBay, seriously i spend most my day trolling through pages off rings...sad!
Also if you dint know i do have my Twitter account back so you can follow my on there if ya want ;] @steffanilouise
Much love

Motel Rocks Bloggers evening

Orange dress/necklace - Topshop
Belt - Primark
Boots - JC Litas
First Picture - Kristabel
Second Picture - Charlene and Katy
Third Picture - Jenna

Hiya.
I was invited to the Motel Rocks bloggers event that took place on Thursday, it was such an amazing event. Much love to the babe that is Selina Jervis who organised it. The whole night was packed full of drinking cocktails networking with bloggers, meeting people irl, popcorn and candyfloss ;] 
I meet Charlene up there again for a bit of pre shopping, only managed to get a pair of earrings but still was so lovely to see her again, she is such a babe and a lovely girl. Also meet the lovely Katy who is just hilarious and seems to know everyone ;]
So the event itself was to showcase the new Christmas collection which is amazing and i will blog the look book in a separate post, but they really do have some awesome clothes coming out. I didn't manage to get many of my own snaps of the clothes as there was just so many people there as you can see from the picture above so I'm sorry about that.
It was just a fantastic shindig on the whole, if you get the chance to go to a Motel Rocks event please go you will be so looked after and will have an amazing time.
Again thanks a lot to every one who put the event on.
Love Steff

P.s - If this post seems a little unstructured or repetitive i have a really bad ear infection and don't feel well at all.

A little sumfin' sumfin' for the holidays

(This is a promotional post)*


So with the nights drawing in and the weather getting worse by the day it can only mean one thing, yep Christmas! A depressing thought for most of us fearing the constant crowds, ques and money worries but there is something you might want to think about *cough* ONLINE SHOPPING *cough* ;]
I was recently contacted by a company called Wahanda which offer really sweet deals at silly little prices. It works on the same concept of Groupon as they also have daily deals around your area and the best selling deals. Unlike Groupon though Wahanda specialize in Health and Beauty and a lot of happiness.
If your stuck for what to buy your mum, wife even husband (its the 21st century men like to feel good too) , you should have a cheeky look at the spa break deals as they are offering some fantastic savings at the mo.
Even if you have done your Christmas shopping already you could even treat yourself to a spa break for being so organized, well done you ;]
Also when you sign up your get £5.00 off for free. Win win.
Hope this helps some people.
Thanks for reading.
Love Steff
