Whilst winter doesn't technically start until the 21st of December, it certainly feels like it is already here. I do not know about you, but waking up at 6am and looking out the window to see cars and ground completely covered in frost and ice only makes me want to head back to bed and stay there until a more humanly hour. When did London get this cold? At least there is no snow, which yes is pretty to look at but terrible to deal with, so I will cut my rant short.

What's better than spending a Sunday night pampering yourself with all sorts of nice smelly things?! And of course when I think of pampering and nice scents I, of course immediately think of Lush. I can't say I've tried much of Lush compared to some bloggers I know (yes Vicky, I am looking at you!), but everything I have tried has not been short than amazing. From their bath bombs to their lip scrub, if you've seen any of past Lush mentions here on the blog you will know I LOVE their sweet candy scented products. Which is why it made perfect sense for me to go for the Candy Mountain Bubble Bar from their Limited Edition Christmas range; not only does it look very cute and it smells fabulous, this was my first bubble bar ever and I was more than excited for bath time.

Knits, knits, knits! If you recall my oversized knit and pleated skirt outfit, you will already know how the trend was all over the runaway for fall 2016. And whilst it is not anything overly ground-breaking for autumn and winter, sweater dresses are gaining attention this season thanks to their 70's vibes. Think warm, cosy and trendy; head-to-toe knit looks are something we can rock in a heartbeat! The idea is that the upper half is covered in chunky knits or sweater dresses and the bottom half shows some serious sleek feet style. Sexy heels, over the knee boots or even leather leggings work well. Check out how I styled mine.

Christmas is on the fast approach and behold, Christmas related posts left, right and centre! First of all, #sorrynotsorry for dropping the C-word so early on this year. Second of all, less than 38 days till the most wonderful time of the year (and 143 days until my wedding but who's counting). The town is decorated, the Christmas lights are up and as you can tell I am very excited! Being the Christmas lover that I am and just like I did last year, I cannot wait to unleash some serious Christmassy related posts I have lined up for you all as the weeks come by. And on that thought, it is almost as if Debenhams read my mind when they invited me to join their Win Your Wishlist Blogger Competition; boy do I love a good competition especially when I could be shopping all items on my want list!

For someone who has a wedding coming up, I sure shop a lot. I'm sure I've admitted here on the blog before that I have a little shopping problem and that my closet is incredibly full, but how can a girl resist so many awesome winter trends? It really does become very hard not to wishlist various things and even harder not to spend any money. My weakness every cold season has to be dresses and searching for winter dress outfit ideas on Pinterest led to the idea of this post (as well as a cheeky shopping order...oops).

Not everyone is fashion forward and that is totally ok. I like trends that other people don't (mostly referring to my mother here but ok) and some trends simply aren't for me, like the Gucci loafer shoes…anyone else thinks they're truly horrible? For example, a style that I particularly like for fall is edgy dressing; biker jackets, leather boots and metal details are amongst my favourite ways to accessorise an outfit. I know this style isn't for everyone but there is a trend around metal detailing that everyone can try this season as it instantly adds a cool touch to a getup. Read on to find out more!

Good morning and happy Monday beauties! Can we talk about how cold this weekend was? Even though winter has not yet started, it certainly feels like we are right in the middle of it. With dropping temperatures and icy winds, it's hard to want to leave the house at all, especially in the morning when it's dark out and all you want is 5 more minutes in bed. I love winter, I really do but getting up in the morning…not so much. This is why, the night before I will lay out my clothes and sort out my hair, keeping my morning routine as simple as possible as all I have to do is my make-up. In the morning, when I'm still half-asleep I do not want to overthink or overdo my makeup, I want products with a long-lasting finish, great coverage and a natural look. Ever since fall started I switched round my products and here are my go to winter makeup goodies I can bet on every day.

It's undeniable, even though winter isn't officially here yet, temperatures have plummet and the last glimpse of unseasonably warm weather is long gone. It's time to get warm and cosy, layer up and brace the cold weather trying to look as stylish as possible. Let's agree though unless you're willing to go half of the year wearing trousers non-stop, skirts and dresses are sometimes out of the question unless you go for a really cosy legging or 200+ denier tights, right? Think twice! I've done my research and I've got the perfect ways to ditch the tights this season and not suffer from frostbite. Don't get me wrong, tights are a godsend, but sometimes you really need to flash some skin to perfect that outfit and here's how you can do so without freezing. You're welcome ;)

Phew, what a busy month October was! Life has been pretty hectic lately with all the wedding preparations, endless birthday celebrations, guests visiting and collabs on the blog. But better busy than bored am I right?! If you follow me on Instagram (@pamella_scalfi) or kept up with my latest blog updates, you would have seen the many fashion posts I published this month and I am so happy and proud of them! I've spoken about how I want fashion to be a bigger part of the blog and I am finally moving towards that. I also had the opportunity to write my first restaurant review and what a great experience that was, so do expect a few more lifestyle posts from me too. Without further ado, here are the highlights of my October.
