This latte art is absolutely amazing! So cute!

This is perfect for this time of year, and so cute! I love the play on 'cold hands, warm heart'

Grey scale cats by OliviaEW, something about this image just makes me so happy.

Twisted Doodles, I wish I could find your website, because judging by this illustration we would get on really well

I'm terrible for standing in my own way, I'm definitely my biggest critic. I love this print from WritersWire it is the perfect reminder to support myself more.
I just found Lemonade's blog and I am so glad I did, her last few weeks of outfits are perfect inspiration for Autumn outfits. Her gorgeous ginger hair has been inspiring me to change mine up again

I've been so drawn towards split coloured hair at the moment (maybe because I watched 101 Dalmatians last week) I love how dramatic it looks. The girl in Modcloth's How To Wear Black Burgundy Lipstick is totally rocking it!

This photo is everything I love about Autumn, it just looks so warm and cosy. I wish I could find a source for it

Sucker Apparel have released a Twin Peaks inspired collection and it is amazing, I wish I had a spare few hundred pounds so I could get this Welcome To Twin Peaks dress and the Fire Walk With Me one too.

This lurcher illustration by FlorenceV4 is absolutely gorgeous, unfortunately it has already sold but she does have it available as cards.

My Response To Martha Stewart Craft Blogger Smack Talk Fiasco via Ally If you aren't a craft blogger you might not have heard Martha Stewart's comments on bloggers but it is definitely worth a look at this article. I loved Marigold's response and her expert craft blogger certificate is amazing. 

Cut, Sew, New: I love this post from Jess, especially the way she presents it. Absolutely amazing post. 

We Need An Inquiry Into Food Banks: Ok, this is a slightly more serious link than usual, but did you know usage of food banks in the UK has increased dramatically in the last few years? A new one opened in Edinburgh just a few weeks ago. It is horrific and shocking that people are unable to feed themselves in a first world country, and even worse that politicians seem to have no idea there is so much need out there. 

Style Direction - All You Need To Make A Movie Is A Girl & A Gun: I loved this look into Chiaki's process of defining her personal style, I wonder how much happier I would be with my wardrobe if I tried it out for myself. 

North Vs South Alli's post about living in the arctic and accessibility to what I consider basics was absolutely fascinating. I've always wanted to live somewhere in the middle of nowhere but never considered how I would handle not being able to get my favourite brand of coffee.

Doing Me: Elanor's post about where she is in her life right now is just so ridiculously beautiful, it has really inspired me live my own life with purpose and be true to myself. 

Rich Reviews Perfume Becky's asked her partner to review some perfumes with her and the results are hilarious. 

Second Hand Style As someone who has always swapped clothes with friends I loved the advice in October's post about receiving second hand clothes. I absolutely hate the idea of clothes going in a land fill, especially if they are still in good condition

Blogs... And Why We Write/Read I can't really articulate what drew me into blogging, although I suspect a large part of it is nosiness. I loved Kaelah's post about how she started and why she blogs and the responses are an equally fascinating read. 

Blogging Thoughts Gina's thoughts on blogging and burnout could not have come at a better time for me. I've definitely been feeling busy and uninspired lately. I loved the advice in the comments about how to stay inspired. 

25 Ways To Have An Awesome Day Melyssa's post on how to have an awesome day has so many little things that can make you feel more accomplished and generally awesome. 

PS - I was going to apologise for my total lack of posts lately, but you guys know how life is. Instead I'm going to spend some time and energy trying to write a post for later this week. Wish me luck!
