I love Autumn. When it's bright but crisp outside and I can embrace fuzzy knits and cosy nights spent in pubs with friends and red wine. And the perfect opportunity to wear my new autumnal outfit courtesy of Selected Femme

I'd heard of the brand but never sat up and took notice until my gorgeous friend Anneli stepped out in this neon angora knit. On closer inspection, I found THE most gorgeous coats (think wool trenches and wrap coats that Ali McGraw would be proud of) and knits made for lazy weekends. I'm a little bit hooked.

I wore this outfit to go for brunch with my boyfriend yesterday at Le Pain Quotidien, where they got my order wrong THREE TIMES! Is that normal?

There was a whole lotta 'vogueing' and 'striking a pose' at The Outnet's recent event to launch their first ever own-brand collection, Iris and Ink (which went live today). It was the first time I'd returned to NAP towers since working there, and, having not attended a blogger event there for two years, I was reminded just how well those guys do it. There were bubbles, gorgeous clothes (Iris and Ink's luxe basics mixed in with the likes of Lanvin, Jil Sander and Oscar de la Renta), and some of my favourite bloggers. What more could a girl ask for?

I managed to convince the gorgeous Michelle Bobb-Parris and Kate McAuley to pose for the camera with me, and I'm glad my powers of persuasion worked - it was so much fun prancing around in front of the camera with these girls.

...I am ASOS's Access All Areas LFW contributor! Pretty stoked to have been asked, espesh as their New York Fashion Week contributor was Tennesee Thomas, The Like drummer and basically one of of my top three girl crushes. You can see my daily fashion week snaps by clicking here and scrolling down until you see my smug little face smiling back at you.

I'm seriously excited about my new bits of bling. Firstly, my Rainbow Link bracelets by Deborah Weinberger. I have Vogue to thank for my discovery - appaz, all the 'cool kids' in Ibiza are wearing them, and who am I to argue with Vogue? So I promptly went to Les Trouvailles d'Elsa and ordered this happy trio. I enquired about getting mine personalised, which is possible, but I was too impatient.

Secondly, Lazy Oaf's pizza necklace. I spotted this little gem on Pinterest arranged amongst other necklaces TO FORM A WHOLE PIZZA. Obviously I had to get one. Sadly, I think I snapped up the last pizza slice and Lazy Oaf have told me they have discontinued this little piece of happiness. On the bright side, they told me that they MIGHT be bringing out a pizza sovereign ring. Now, wouldn't that be something.

(Wearing Lazy Oaf necklace (now sold out, boo), Deborah Weinberger rainbow link bracelets, Revlon nail polish in One Perfect Coral and H&M gold glitter nail polish.)

Last week, all my pug dreams came true. Because for the last few weeks I have had the honour of styling and producing PetsPyjamas' first ever Pet Fashion Show. YOU GUYS. There were PUGS wearing BOWS, THREE shihtzus, TWO miniature Dachshund and even a SLEB (thanks to Made in Chelsea's Rosie Fortescue for being our star model).

Here's me looking SO HAPPY I COULD CRY with a couple o' pugs. I am wearing an Etoile Isabel Marant playsuit, Zara blouse and Isabel Marant Bobby sneakers.

First of all, check out the video, you may spot a familiar (and slightly bedraggled-looking) face. Yup, it's me ON VIDEO AGAIN.

And now for the backstage photos...

Lovely ladies, Coco and Olivia.

Last weekend the lovely and talented Grace Owen popped over to my gaff to talk fah-shun for her fabulous Youtube channel. Grace works in TEEVEE and is going to be a famous TV person soon, you just wait.

The moral of the story? I should probably get professional help about my shopping problem and stop saying 'kind of' so much. Also, I sound like the queen apparently. I thought this was just my ~video~ voice but my boyfriend smugly told me THAT'S HOW I REALLY SOUND. Anyway, self-deprecation and neuroses aside, watch it! I'm an actually real person and HERE'S PROOF.

Thanks Grace!
