Nobody's Child

Hello lovelies, so the other day I was scrolling through Facebook when I came across an advert for a shop called Nobody's Child, with the clothing on the advert looking right down my street I decided to take a look on their website. Oh how I was not disappointed well apart from the lack of funds I had to by every piece I loved! 

Please stay with me whilst I ramble for a bit, I apologise in advice if I don't use the proper fashion terms for things, I'm trying. Oh also, this is not sponsered or anything of the such I just discovered Nobody's Child and fell in love.

Of course, I had to make a wishlist to share with you all! Before I start, no this post is not sponsored, I just saw so many pieces on their website I had to show you guys.

1. Bomber jackets made a come back in the Summer and I was a huge fan of them (lacking funds to buy one though) & this bomber is no exception with it's cute ditsy floral pattern.
2. The colour scheme is very Seventies (well I think so) with it's orange, dark red and mustard stripes. 
 3. At the moment I am in love with this colour, this kind of blush nude colour especially on tops, shirts and skirts (basically everything). Another reason this top is on my wishlist is the high collar with ruffle detail, I think it would look so nice under a pinafore or just worn with some mom jeans and converses.
4. Now I don't normally like animal prints because they can often look tacky but, this bodysuit is an exepction. What's great with bodysuits is they can be worn with alot of things over the top; a skirt (ohh imagine with a really nice midi skirt and maybe some heels), with pants or for a more chilled outfit, jeans. The scoop back is lovely and would be perfect if you created a bee-hive hairstyle to really show it off.

5. This has to be one of my favourite pieces, with the cute gingham pattern and the peplum style to it makes it look super flattering.
6. I love the shape of the sleeves on this wrap dress it's yet another piece I think would look really flattering on, it's quite kimono like.
7. It's striped need I say more?
8. Recently, I have been seeing a lot of these pyjama style shirts in shops and worn by fashion bloggers, I really like how they look quite dressy and laid back at the same time. I think the star pattern is cute and I like the white piping detail.
9. I would never have thought to style a baseball shirt with a skirt but, I love it!
10. I NEED this skirt!!! It's black, it's velvet and I am slightly in love! I aways think velvet is perfect for this time of year.

I dare you to go on their website and not end up wanting at least one thing!

Thank you for reading!

Lush Halloween/Autumn Wish List

Ahh I'm so happy it's finally come (well it had when I started this post) , Autumn is here which makes me one happy bunny. You may not know but Autumn is one of my favourite seasons with Winter along side it. With Halloween fast approaching (literally less than a week away) I thought I should get this posted!

I have to make a confession, please make sure you are seated before reading the rest of this. I, Katie Marie Lennon, I have never had a Lush bath or a Lush shower for that matter. Yes, you don't need to re-read that sentence, you read correctly, it's not that I've not wanted to have a "Lush bath" believe me, I just have dodgy skin.
To cut a long story short for a few years now I have had super sensitive skin mainly on my legs so I've not been able to enjoy a bath comfortably for a while. Basically if I had bath or a shower my legs would itch non stop during and a good three quarters of an hour after. But, (touch wood) it's been quite a bit better recently. 

After all that rambling here is my current Lush Autumn Wish List (I hope you appreciate my Autumnal coloured type I have used) 

Fist up, the Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar its a golden orange glittery pumpkin need I say any more to explain why I want it?
With it containing cocoa butter Boo Bath Melt seems like a cute (yes I called a bath melt cute) way to keep your skin hydrated, great for this cold time of year. 
I've seen quite a few videos of the Autumn Leaf bath bomb in motion in peoples baths and the swirls of orange, red and green that it creates look so autumnal. 
So before doing this post I went to read about each product and oh my goodness the video on the page for Monsters' Ball Bath Bomb , the colours are so beautiful! It looks like it puts on a show fizzing out into pink, purple and blue bubbles and then turning your bath into a deep blue lagoon. If that wasn't good enough it also helps to moisturize your skin. 
The scent that Lush describes the Pumpkin Bath Bomb of having sounds like the perfect Autumn scent, orange and the ultimate Autumn spice Cinnamon  (I hope that sentence made some sort of sense).

Do you have any of the Halloween Lush products? What are your favourites?

My recent illustration work

Hello lovelies, I thought I would create a post to share with you my recent illustration work. Since leaving University in July I've felt very lost to say the least, I've been so used to just creating my illustrations for projects to deadlines. Of course after finishing uni you're then meant to go out into the big bad world get a job! After no success on the job front so far and feeling pretty rubbish about myself, I recently decided I would finally get into creating more illustrations and with interest I would sell prints of them. 

I have two projects on the go at the moment, I'm currently creating the artwork for a local singer songwriters chart single cd, which is crazy to think my illustrations will be on a cd that people can buy! I've enjoyed the experience so far, I also now have Photoshop so my live will be made so much easier, well it's either that or make it on Paint but, I'm pretty sure that wouldn't quite cut it some how. 
I am also in the works of collaborating with Soho Radio creating merchandise for their shop which is crazzzyyyyyyy! I will definitely tell you more when I know more and things have been set in stone.

As I said earlier I have also been working on making prints of illustrations, I hope to have ones printed of my Frida Kahlo , Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy illustrations.

Here's a few examples of my recent illustrations

I hope you enjoyed this post! 
Do you have any suggestions on people you would like to see me draw?

If you haven't already guessed from the name of my blog, my name is Katie, I am 22 years old, from Greater Manchester and graduated from University in July with a degree in Illustration*. I love all things Sixities; especially the fashion (oh hello mini skirts and colourful patterns), music and interior design. I spend the majority of my time drawing and spending time with my lovely boyfriend and my family.

So, let's crack on with the Get To Know Me Tag questions

Blog Refresh

I have finally done it! You're probably thinking 'done what?', well I have finally got round to giving my blog a refresh. It's about time really and I'm so glad I've done it because before it looked very unorganised. Now I like to think it looks nice and clean and easy to navigate, which I hope will encourage me to get back into blogging regularly. 

I got my blog template on Etsy from FearneCreativeDesign where the lovely Eve as well as making the template she helped me (when I say help I mean did everything) install it too. So, if you're in need of a new blog template check out  Eve's shop on Etsy.

My header has also changed, it now has brand new fonts and should hopefully no longer look pixelated.

What should you expect to see from my blog?

- Wish lists (there's always something I wish I owned)
- Beauty product reviews
- Interviews with my favourite bloggers, illustrators and other interesting people
- Topics I feel passionate about
- Fashion favourites
- Maybe a outfit post one day
- My favourite things; favourite places in Manchester, places to eat, favourite pins on Pinterest etc
- Places I want to visit
- Posts on current fashion trends and high street finds
- Maybe a few tags
- A few ramblings about my life

I hope to write a post about me soon and possibly a tag so you can find out a bit more of who I am and what I like/dislike.

Thank you for reading!
