Well hello apple season.

And hello to my excuse for making oodles of sweet, sticky and otherwise unctuous apple-y desserts!

I said I'd let you know what I ended up doing with these apples we picked (up at the farm shop ;) in this recent OOTD, and whilst it was hard to choose a worthy recipe, I plumped for some beautifully juicy, sticky stuffed apples, baked to bursting point and oozing with syrupy, honeyed juices.

With only a handful of ingredients, they're the perfect, fruity treat to whip up for the winter months.

AUTUMNAL DRESSING AS A SIZE 14 (AND UP).

I did a summer version of this post a few months ago and it had a really great reception (in fact some of you even emailed me to comment/have a chat about it which was so lovely), so here is the A/W edition.

Again, I'll start with the proviso that whatever size or shape you are, you can dress precisely how you wish. But for me, some items/brands/stores/styles just don't seem to be cut well for my body or aren't comfortable, and others just really are. So I'm going to share the positive today, and let you know where I get my favourite pieces to accommodate a less than flat stomach, quality layering items that'll last you through the years and some of my personal tips for styling a body that isn't shaped like (or as toned as!) a mannequin this autumn/winter.

It's always a bit of a process, swapping out your skincare routine every change in season, in favour of something a little more fitting for the weather, but a process no less enjoyable in my eyes.

Personally, my skin seems to vary a lot with the seasons, and with it, the products I like to use.

I'm feeling in a bit of a chatty mood, so if you care to hear/see me ramble a bit about skincare then read on!

THE MUST-HAVE PRINT I'LL BE WEARING ALL SEASON.

Oh look, another tweed jacket!

I've been wearing them seemingly non-stop lately (like this post, and another here), but with good reason because they're just the perfect piece for this inbetween-y weather we've had lately (although saying that, it's pretty bleak and brisk outside as I write this, and I've just been out in a coat and scarf!).

I'm going to spoil things for you by telling you from the outset that I love this dress.

It's always a happy moment when you come across a number that fits you like a glove, is cut and styled perfectly for your body, and you can't wait to get out and wear it (and in a blogger's case, share all the photographs of you wearing it!) This polka-dot creation, is exactly that sort of dress. And I chose to wear it on my birthday in the fair city of Paris :)

(You can see part one of our journey here if you haven't already!).

I'm the luckiest girl in the world because just as I was finishing up the last content from our Provencal adventure and feeling extra forlorn about it all coming to an end, F whisked me off to Paris for my birthday!

I'm sure most of you will have already heard of Alpha H - their Liquid Gold is something of a cult product with it's promise to rejuvenate even the most tired and problematic of skins.

I'm very much pleased to be partnering with Cult Beauty (the luxury beauty treasure trove) today to bring you a few products from their October Brand of the Month that you may not have tried.



TWO AUTUMNAL PIECES EVERY CLASSIC DRESSER NEEDS.

I like to think of myself as a classic dresser.

Of course I'm swayed/inspired by new and incoming pieces each season (although there will never be a moment for oversized trainers or Gucci belts, sorry!), but ultimately, I live in a rotation of bretons, jeans and ballet flats..

No shame though! ;)

Today, I want to share two pieces, that I think every classic dresser needs this autumn. Hope you enjoy :)
