PUMPKIN FARM: ESSINGTON FRUIT FARM
The other day I received an email from Topshop (Oh my god *explodes*) asking to do a Halloween collaboration!! I was sooo excited and spent about five hours choosing my perfect Halloween Topshop outfit! I really wanted to wear every Halloween colour apart from red, which worked out really well as I managed to find the purple shoes and the green top (and they're both velvet oh my god my favourite yay!) and although you probably can't see it, I have orange nail varnish on! Although I think the pumpkins pretty much makeup for the lack of orange in my outfit haha! I love that if I remove the Halloween transfer tattoos and the socks, I could wear this as a completely normal outfit, so I will definitely be wearing all of these items again in the very near future... tomorrow is very tempting indeed.
We organised a photoshoot at the wonderful Essington Fruit Farm in Wolverhampton where you can pick your own.. well.. pretty much everything. There was a huge list of tasty fruit and veg which you can pick normally, but unfortunately as its now not the right time of year for it most of the fruit isn't available anymore, but there are many many pumpkins right now as you can probably see and its well worth the visit because its such a fun day out and also because of the (extremely instagrammable) 99p cupcakes that are sold in the farm shop which also sells many other fabulous things which I wanted to buy, and that I also took photos of, instagram is going to be overrun with some very cute photos over the next few days. Also!! Over the half term weekend they're doing trailer rides up to the field where you can pick your own pumpkin! So um yeah, I just want to thank you Essington Farm for letting me take over your pumpkin patch for the day it was so much fun!! (and very cold, bring a sweater kids)
I decided to name this look after the Marilyn Manson song Prelude (The Family Trip) which was originally from the film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and the first half was written by Roald Dahl and it always reminds me of Halloween because of chocolate and sweeeeets!! Despite the fact that I'm pretty sure its set around Christmas? Oh well, in my brain Manson + Chocolate = Halloween.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN FROM ME AND TOPSHOP!!

I found these cute lil photos on my mac from many months ago when I still lived in London. They were taken at one of the Beyond Retro press days, it was super cold and thats when I first met the wonderful Ellie from Rose and Vintage who has the best style ever!! It was such a fun press day because we just roamed around the shop looking at all the odd bits and pieces and we found this really cool sofa that I just had to take photos on, eventually they had to tell us the press day was over and it was time for us to leave, sad sad sad :(
On another note, yesterday my macbook broke after installing Yosemite, the screen went super pixelated and green. We were about to take it to the apple store but then I booted it up and its working fine, apart from the fact my dad tried to mess with the colour settings so that I could use it yesterday and is now coating everything in a subtle (not so subtle) blue tinge. Try as I might I can't get the colour settings to change their tunes in the display settings, I think he might have edited the original mac theme. Such computer rage!!
Edit: I did it yay!!!

It is my personal belief that I look like a toddler wearing some kind of playsuit here, maybe I hadn't put much makeup on that day but I definitely look decidedly younger than I already do. Not that, that is any different from normal, people always seem to think I'm super young, I hope this shall bode well for me in the future!
This outfit is a total mishmash of colours, I didn't even realise when I put it together that nothing matched (Pink and yellow tshirt, black and red trousers and sea-green and purple socks, what r u doing kayla?) clearly I am actually a toddler who dressed myself, which by the way should totally be a thing!!! I'm in love with my marble tshirt, I've had many a tie-dye tshirt over the past few years but never have I came across a marbled one, they're all individual and I really loved the mixture of yellow and pink!!
Also, I noticed a lot of people look at my blog at 8AM, now I'm going to go and guess that this is all the people who have school/ college/ work, but I normally post around 10am-12pm (I try to post at half 9- the majority of the time I am too tired to string two words together) Should I start going to bed super early so I can post something new up for all of you to see at like 7am?? Because I'd totally be up for doing that if thats when you guys read my blog!!! Anyway, now I feel the need to

Here are some nice photos of me battling the english weather. You can't actually tell that it was extremely windy, so I just had to include the magnificent help-my-hair-has-blown-over-my-face photo! I literally adore this outfit, its so pink (I've decided I really like pink again because I am always wearing it!! and yellow of course!). I found the fluffy collar and cuff jumper and the children's pink heart print backpack in a charity shop on Thursday where I spent a grand total of £5.50 and additionally got a really cute baby blue fluffy scarf and a cute cropped pastel floral vintage shirt! I'm really enjoying living back in Birmingham because now I can go charity shopping whenever I like, in London its so difficult to find decent charity shops as they all charge like £8 for a tshirt! Now I'm back home though I'm finding I'm acquiring clothes so fast, so I need to sell some old ones on depop, I'll let all of you guys know when I've posted more on there!!

Hiya!! I hope you're all enjoying the new theme I made for my blog, I love it, its so much quirkier than my last one and I think it fits my style more which is always a plus!! I had a few questions on instagram asking whether I'd bought it or made it myself; the love-heart twirling gif banner and the cute flying things which are falling out of the sky are from Glitter-Graphics.com! Usually I'd make them myself but I stumbled across the website and it was so adorable I just had to use it!! I made the social glitter buttons in the side bar myself and editing the CSS a little from the original basic blogger theme, although its all very basic stuff, pretty much everything can be done in the customise blog section apart from a few things like how you want your links to look and moving your gadget headers around and what not.
I thought I'd take a few celebratory photos, I also found my Kayla Cola bottle which I got at VFest with AXPARIS and was like ok you are going to be in my photo! Along with another super cute Punkypins necklace (I'm really obsessed with Punkypins finally a jewellery company that is really me) and I'm also expanding my choker collection, one arrived this morning and last week this cute lil pastel multicoloured choker arrived which I love although I'd like a darker one so I may have to invest in more!! My neck will just be choker central ^_^
