We kissed, I fell under your spell

Jumper- Primark | Skirt- Primark | Boots- New Look | Pearls- (Mum's!) | Satchel-Cambridge Satchel Co
I have a thing about red lipstick, the way it looks, the way it smells the way it makes you feel when you wear it. I just adore it! I have a few favourites and the Kate Moss- Rimmel one is a firm favourite of mine. So it will come as no surprise that I also had to add this adorable jumper to my lip print collection while I was wondering around Primark the other week. At present I have a dress and a blouse and now this little knitted beauty. It would come as no surprise that this has been a firm favourite amongst the blogger community as it's just gorgeous and at only £14, it's a must. If you want to see two of my favourites ways it's been styled I suggest seeing the lovely Megan and Olivia's posts too!

These photos- I am very proud to say- were taken my younger brother Trin who is...wait for it...only 12! Yep and he shot in manual mode too! I am so ridiculously proud of him. We decided to shoot in this beautiful spot in Bristol while I was back home and we had a blast. It really was the most perfect day together. I took a few moments teaching him how to hold the camera, and how to make sure it focused, what to press (and what not to!) and I helped him along the way. Trin has always expressed an interest in photography- the boy is only 12 and has quite the few hundred followers on Instagram!). I also took photos of him too and just couldn't believe how ridiculously grown up he has gotten. I actually squealed at him when looking at the preview screen, "when did you turn into a man child TRIN?!" Ha it was so funny we really did have a giggle and if that wasn't great enough a squirrel popped out across the path to visit us. I couldn't believe how close he came up to us long enough for me to get some snaps of him. After a lovely trip around Clifton we headed off to the cinema to see 'Her' while munching down on lots of chocolate.
