September... monthly round up #4

These monthly round-ups come around way too quickly!! I almost forgot to do one until I realised it's actually OCTOBER? Crazy right? 

Favourite Outfit

I wore this on the day of my birthday and just felt super comfortable! This outfit defines some my fashion loves right now.. leather, aztec, chunky knits, skulls (necklace)... see the 'outfit post' here

Favourite Fashion Buy

I bought this shirt from New Look the other day, I'm yet to wear it but I've been lusting over snake print for a while now! I can't wait to style it up and actually wear it :) It looks much much nicer in real life than in this picture. I think New Look website makes everything look so mumsy.. they really don't picture their clothes very well!

I ordered this online, something I wouldn't normally do when buying lipstick but the colour is absolutely fab, a really bright sexy red! With my newly dark hair I thought red would look fab as when I had red hair I was a bit scared of red overload! It's not as easy to apply as my favourite Mac lippy (which I may have lost :( ), but it is half the price! 

Favourite Nails

My take on the 'galaxy nail' trend. I didn't appreciate these nails as much as I should have when I actually had it on, I wasn't that impressed. After I took it off I missed this gorgeous mani and can't wait to do it again.. see my post here

Biggest Splurge
I haven't really splurged at all this month, most things I have bought have been fairly cheap and cheerful. Although I did spend £40 in Primark on just three things.. which in my eyes is a bit of a splurge! 

Best Bargain

I always contradict myself... as I just mentioned my 'spurge' in Primark, well during that splurge I found these gorgeous bargains! Just £16 and I absolutely love them! they have a little heel too which I love! Super comfy too! 
Biggest Lust

I'm annoyed that I can't find a picture of my 'biggest lust' item online. It is a leopard print fur coat from Topshop and it is absolutely devine!! It is a tad pricey at £100 but looks like it would be well worth it! 
I'll leave you with a picture of a coat that isn't quite my biggest lust, but I would happily buy if money was no object :)

Plan on Buying

I have actually bought for now everything I want, but I plan on buying a claw ring once I find a cheap one and I need a vintage lace Basque more than anything but I CANNOT find one! Anyone know of any? I want black! There is one on ASOS but it's not quite perfect! 

Favourite Picture

Makes me laugh every time.. just sums up my birthday night out perfectly: MESSY! 

Well I work in Morrisons and took the plunge and applied for a supervisor job... don't know if I got it yet, but just applying is a bit of an achievement! Other than that I've been a lazy bugger this month... uni starts again Monday though, so no more lazy Lowri! 
Also I think my lovely blog has grown a bit this month, as in I feel I have put more effort with outfit posts, which was the original aim for this blog! 
Looking Forward to

SOUTH WALES BLOGGER MEET!! I'm beyond exited! Can't wait to meet some fellow bloggers.. although I hope I'm not shy; I don't think I'm shy but you never know with me... lol!

HALLOWEEEEEEN!!! Last years Halloween was probably the best, most funny night of my life... you know a night that will stay in your memories forever? Well I'm hoping we can re-create that same madness this Halloween! Just what do I dress up as? Dying to dress as a Jack in the box, but maybe be awkward to go the the loo! 

Also.. I mentioned in my last post that I'm going to start my own little business selling hand painted false nails.. Well I can't wait for that to get underway and hopefully start making some moneys :) 

That's all from me.. September has been a good month :D Bring on October!
