Cosy is what we aim for...

Living in London, I often crave the countryside. I miss being able to see a horizon, and I miss being able to breathe deeply without inhaling some pungent exhaust fume aroma, or an eau de ACTUAL TOILET, which seems to be so frequent in the city. So the fact that it's taken me more than two years to get around to visiting Hampstead Heath may come as a surprise. It's definitely worth the bus fare, guys, even if only to see some beautiful rich-people houses!

As you can see, I didn't just go for the mansions. I was most definitely in it for the trees. If you're into trees, Hampstead Heath has 'em. I've always associated the Heath with fields and picnicking families (and on that front I was not disappointed!) but there are also some beautiful wooded areas, and some gorgeous scenic views. I was also particularly excited that I could see so many aeroplanes flying overhead, although I appreciate that aeroplane noise might well irritate some people.

I made sure to wrap up super warm (and also wear a mini skirt, because I live on the gosh-darned edge, motherfluffers) for our little pseudo-country walk. I was also wearing a duffel coat, but I took it off so as to suffer for my art, and also because I knew that there would be too much out-fit repetition if I wore it twice. Trade secrets, guys.

An Autumnal day out in London

Brr. It's bloody cold here in London right now. Luckily, I relish autumnal weather because it gives me an excuse to wear layers and dress from head to toe in colours like mustard, burgundy and leaf green.

Every year at the beginning of Autumn, I make myself some little goals. I think it's a throwback to my school days, and the feeling of a fresh start happening in September. I don't think I'll ever shake that feeling of September being the start of something.

Since we're half way through Autumn now, instead of telling you my goals, I'll tell you what I've achieved. I'd like to know what you guys have achieved too. It could be anything, big or small. Let's celebrate success!

- Dressed as an Axolotl Princess for Hallowe'en.
- Hosted two parties
- Did lots of housework
- Wore plenty of autumnal outfits
- Did a lot of writing.

I'm off to Budapest for a long weekend the day after tomorrow. I'm pretty excited! I've been before, but it was a school trip and I may not have been paying as much attention to my surroundings as I could have been...!
So guys, let me know what you've achieved this autumn, and we can all feel very congratulatory together. Or have a look at what I was up to last autumn!
