More things for Autumn

So clearly I can’t stop planning for Autumn and Winter. Seriously I keep seeing things that I want/need to own. Why is there so much great stuff in the shops and why haven’t I won the lottery so that I can treat myself? Maybe I should just not go near shops or online at all and then I wouldn’t see all these things. But then life would be boring and it’s nice to dream and look at even if you can’t do anything more than give each item a quick stroke or longing look before walking past. On the plus side it is not too long now until Christmas so at least when people ask me what I want I will have a ready made list (or two) to go to! Anyway here’s my latest loves, be warned it’s highly likely that you will see a lot more of these over the coming months, I girl can but dream right!
Lau's Autumn Wishlist
Check Skirt, Fat Face / Kissing Stags Cushion, Anorak
Cable Knit socks, Joules / Mini Bow Ring, Kate Spade / Chevron Throw, BHS
 Padlock Tote Bag, M&S / Fairisle Cardigan, Fat Face / Riding Boots, M&S
Fluffy socks and blankets, plus fairisle knits? I’ve found my own little piece of heaven right here in this post. Isn’t that what the cold weather is all about? Although I’m not sure I would ever spend £25 on a pair of socks. It may be time to fetch out the knitting needles and get practicing my cable.
Also I am so tempted by the boots, I’ve been searching for the perfect pair for ages and ages and then I found these and they fit perfectly around the calves – miracles of miracles. But can I really spend £99 on boots? I know that so reasonable for riding boots but I still sort of balk at that price tag. Hmmm, watch this space because honestly these are my favourite thing on this whole board of beautiful things.
Okay one final thing about these lovely things. The ring – the Kate Spade ring. I am obsessed with it and yes while it isn’t officially autumnal or wintery (yes, I know that#s not a real word) I love love love it. It’s an obsession. Hence the inclusion. What can I say, I’m a sucker for shiny things with bows! Plus I want a ring for my middle finger on my left hand and this just grabbed my attention straight away. This is definitely making it’s way onto my Christmas list.
What bits and bobs have you all got your eye on? Tell me please, although don’t make them too lovely otherwise I will need them too!

Squirrel, Squirrel!

I have been in love with this squirrel jumper ever since I went shopping for my summer holiday wardrobe and saw it in M&S. I picked it up at least five times before telling myself that I didn’t need it for a summer trip to Wales – I was right Wales was lovely and warm and there was no need for a Squirrel jumper – but still I’ve regretted not buying it ever since. It’s just so lovely that I smile just looking at it. Plus it’s less than £30 which is bargainaeous considering the number of times I know I will wear it in the Autumn and Winter. Can you hear me trying to convince you that it’s okay for me to buy it?!



Anyway I had kind of put it out of my mind and then I saw it on Domestic Sluttery in their Animals Getting All Up In Your Jumper Grillz post and all the lovely feelings mentioned above just reappeared. I swear now I want it even more and you just know that it’s going to be sold out now that it’s been mentioned online. In fact that’s exactly what happened to the navy pug dress I wanted. Actually that was mentioned on DS and it was from M&S too. Hmmm I’m sensing a theme going on here!

So watch this space guys I may just be heading to an M&S this bank holiday weekend and perusing their animal collection.

Plus as it’s a squirrel jumper I just had to share this clip with you – Classic!


Happy Bank Holiday people, here’s to a lovely three day weekend.

Birthday list number 2

Me again with an update to my birthday list. I’ve spotted a couple more bits and pieces that just had to be added.

When you receive an email with the subject line ‘I bet you wish you were wearing this right now…’ you know that clicking open is going to give you a wonderful wardrobe treat. Well I wasn’t disappointed when Fi sent me this gorgeous dress from M&S via email. I’ve managed to stop myself from rushing out and buying it so far and luckily (or unluckily) it’s currently sold out online. Even so hopefully it will find it’s way to me all wrapped up on the 12th April.


I started watching series 1 of Friday Night Lights last year, but then got distracted and haven’t been able to get back onto it. Well hopefully come my birthday that might change, the boxset of the whole series would be very welcome…thank you!


I’m also still obsessed with these jeans from Gap. I literally love everything about them. The colour, the spots, love love love them. I’m already planning spring outfits around them!


Another thing that needs to get on my birthday list is the ebook version of the entire Harry Potter series. I think I’ve spoken about my obsession with Potter before. I honestly believe that my Hogwarts letter got lost. No one can ever find my parent’s house so what hope did an owl have?! And okay I may have two sets of the books already but the ebooks are still tempting me. I reread the series at least once a year and sometimes books 4-7 are just too bulky to carry around with me. that’s where the ebook version would come perfectly, they’d all fit perfectly on the tiny miracle that is my kindle!

Finally I saw some amazing bedding in Primark at the weekend, no picture but it was white with a navy pug pattern all over it. Love and want!
