Autumn has officially arrived, and with it comes wet weather, dark nights and cooler temperatures. So what are the best autumn clothes to add to your wardrobe?

The most important part of your autumn outfit will be your choice of outwear.


The colder it gets, the cosier you’ll want to be! Adding knitwear to your autumn style is the key to being cosy. Opt for a knitted jumper dress or jumper for a cosy outfit that can be worn by day paired with chunky boots, or by night with some heels! A chunky knit cardigan is perfect for pairing with jeans and a vest top, or with a skater skirt and for maximum comfort we recommend an oversized fit or maxi cardigan. Another great autumn outfit choice is a knitted co ord set – get double the cosiness with a knitted top and bottoms!


No matter what Autumn clothing you opt for, you’ll need the perfect shoes to complete your look. Boots are a must-have for your new season wardrobe! From knee high boots paired with a mini skirt to chunky ankle boots worn with skinny jeans or your comfiest leggings, boots are the ideal footwear for keeping warm and dry as the seasons change.


The must-have trend to incorporate into your autumn wardrobe is faux leather. We see leather shorts, leather trousers and leather jackets making a comeback every year as the weather turns colder, and this year will be no exception!


Queen Elizabeth II has died

The Queen Of England is Dead!

Queen Elizabeth II, the UK’s longest-serving monarch, has died at Balmoral aged 96, after reigning for 70 years.

The Queen was born Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor, in Mayfair, London, on 21 April 1926.

She died peacefully on Thursday afternoon at her Scottish estate, where she had spent much of the summer.

The Queen came to the throne in 1952 and witnessed enormous social change.

Her son King Charles III said the death of his beloved mother was a “moment of great sadness” for him and his family and that her loss would be “deeply felt” around the world.

He said: “We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished sovereign and a much-loved mother.

“I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.”

Queen Elizabeth II’s tenure as head of state spanned post-war austerity, the transition from empire to Commonwealth, the end of the Cold War and the UK’s entry into – and withdrawal from – the European Union.

Her reign spanned 15 prime ministers starting with Winston Churchill, born in 1874, and including Ms Truss, born 101 years later in 1975.

Elizabeth was crowned at Westminster Abbey on 2 June 1953, aged 27, in front of a then-record TV audience estimated at more than 20 million people.

Members of Parliament will pay tribute to the Queen and take an oath to King Charles.

There will be church bells tolling and gun salutes as local and national organisations and charities organise ways to pay their respects, with commemorative events and books of condolence.

A state funeral for the Queen is expected in the next two weeks.

choosing peace over chaos

In this life, giving people the chance to disturb your peace with their negative vibe or energy is the easiest way to lose your sanity.

problematic people can be anyone. Family, friends, co-workers, classmates etc…

I’ve come to understand that when people sees that you will rather not respond to their negativity, it hurts them and makes them feel invalidated. This are the toxic type of people you want out of your life. As long as they are not happy with themselves, they will continue to drain your energy and keep bringing negativity into your life.

When people see that you are happy within yourself, enjoying yourself and just living life on your own terms, I feel like it reminds them of how miserable they are and in turn, they try to bring your spirit down. It’s so funny because majority of the time, this people are the ones we call close friends and families. This is when you decide if you want to continue dealing with them or choose peace. For the past weeks, I have been ensuring that no one, irrespective of who they are, will have the opportunity to disturb my peace of mind or happiness.

Three ways to always choose solitude

Below are my top three ways of always choosing peace over chaos. 

  1. No unnecessary respond: If you don’t want others to take away your peace of mind, you must learn how to ignore certain situations no matter how much you want to talk about it. I understand, when people push your buttons, it is hard to not automatically react. You feel angry, upset or even anxious and you just want to respond. However, I am here to tell you that, the best thing to do, is to simply take a pause and see If the situation is within your control. Remember, you can’t control another person but what you can control is your respond to the other person.
  2. Remove yourself: Remember, you always have the options to remove yourself from any kind of conversation, gathering or even relationship that affects your peace. You can either choose to remove yourself selectively by limiting communication with this people and resorting to something less verbal. For example, by using emails or text messages if it is an important message. and if this people are friends or family members, you can limit communication with them by only seeing them on major holidays or events. If you want your peace and sanity in check, be prepared to follow through and repeat this step for as long as you deem fit/necessary.
  3. Acceptance: Some people regardless of how much they make our life unbearable, we might not have the courage enough to stay away from them for too long. This is when this method comes in. you can now choose to accept that this person will likely not change in a particular way and decide to be okay with it. Although, only choose acceptance if other options do not work and you still want the person in your life. If not, it is not advisable to stay with someone who is making you lose your sanity or self-worth.
