This week, my Friday favourite has to be my new jacket from Zara. Biker style, oversized and faux fur lined – I’m obsessed! It’s super cosy so I’m sure it will see me right through the mild weather we’re having at the moment, to chillier temperatures in the next few months. I love the shape too; the fact that it’s oversized means it makes any outfit look effortless and easy, and it will go with anything. Expect to see me wearing it pretty much 24/7!

My Friday favourite this week has to be my amazing new Kendall + Kylie boots. I’ve been looking for the perfect pair of black ankle boots for what feels like the last ten years (probably a bit of an exaggeration!) and I have finally found them – a bit of a heel but not inconveniently high, super pointy and a gorgeous leather. I can foresee these being firm wardrobe favourites through autumn, winter and beyond.

This week I’m loving my ‘Not Just a Pretty Face’ nail varnish from Essie – a really nice, classic pale pink that makes transitioning from summer to winter nails a whole lot easier!
I’ve actually had the bottle for a while, but have been trying to give my nails a rest from having Shellac done regularly. After giving my nails some breathing space, I decided to give the Essie varnish a go; I used a clear Essie varnish underneath as a base coat, and then went ahead with the pink (three layers of varnish and another layer of clear to get the shade I wanted).
Overall I have been pleased with the results, the varnish has chipped only slightly since I applied it, but it has lasted a whole six days – which let’s be honest, is a miracle for DIY nail varnishes. Although I had to apply a few layers, it was worth it – let’s hope I don’t jinx it with this post now!

I’ve just moved in to a new flat in Manchester and am on the hunt for decorations to accessorise my bedroom, so naturally I gave Next Home a visit at the weekend. I’m a tad obsessed with scented candles and I wanted a new member to join my current collection. I came across Next’s own brand ‘Dark Amber Fragranced Glass Jar Candle’ which smells amazing and suits my bedroom perfectly, with its monochrome aesthetic.
For only £5, the candle is a steal (it burns for up to 55 hours apparently!) and is a much cheaper option than the popular Yankee candle – although I do have a couple of these in my collection too…

This week I’m loving Unidays, the one stop app with student discounts – being a student, every penny you save helps and the app is always filled with discounts for my favourite shops (and with the Trafford Centre lock-in on the horizon, having an extra 20% off Pull and Bear is a definite bonus!) It’s not just fashion either – I discovered 10% off Morrisons this week, which is going to make a big difference to my food shopping splurges! This app is a life saver!
