Today is the boyf's birthday, so yesterday eve we went out for a cheeky burger. Although saying that, I'm a wheat intolerant vegetarian and all round awkward eater, so no burgers for poor old Helen. I did however, find a tasty salad and the most delicious courgette fries I've ever had... (the only ones I've ever had, but still delicious)
I thought I'd show you a little snippet of what I wore to dinner. I'm not usually a warehouse shopper, but I love this cardi, and anything else with a tie belt waist for that matter. It's my current obsession.
On another note, I need to find a new place to take my photos. I'm very much over the gross mossy floor at my new house. God damn fungus.

I'm back blogging after the most stressful few weeks ever! I moved house, got a new job & had my driving test all within about 3 weeks... and for a sensitive soul like me, that is a hell of a lot of nerves & tears. My nails are also about 3 inches shorter than they were,  but I've done it now! I passed my test, my new house is starting to feel more like a home and I'm feeling proud! This all means I am back to blogging and illustrating, both of which I have missed like a left arm.
For my first post back, I wanted to show you this little cold shoulder number from Hidden Fashion. It was perfect for a sunny autumn day like today, when you just don't know what to wear. Last week some days I was in skirts and sandals, and other days I was wearing knitwear and boots. It's such a hard season to dress for and I just want it to be oversized coat and chunky boot weather now. So I think this sort of outerwear is just the right piece for this queer old British weather. I feel like a bit of a grandma about the fact that I have just written a whole paragraph about the weather. I also brought some Horlicks on my weekly shop the other day. Maybe this is what turning 26 does to you. It's all down hill from here.
Also... when you click on the link for this duster, you literally will not believe the price of it. I couldn't!
It's so nice to be back!!!!

Sometimes, when it gets to this time of year, I um and ah about what sort of coat I want for Autumn/Winter. This year, I couldn't be more sure/obsessed about a belted wool coat. Oatmeal, camel, mink, grey, nude... I want them all! These are a few of my top picks, although I am yet to order one. I feel like I'm holding out for one that makes my jaw drop when I see it. It will happen.
