november on the farm | OOTD

primark jumper // topshop jeans // new look parka // asos hat // kate moss '107' // super chic wellies

Gosh, so it's only been a mere month since I last posted in these parts... shocking! I think I'm finding the real life/blog life balance harder as I'm getting a bit older and more into work and heading out in evenings and weekends. But I still LOVE blogging and ADORE anyone who is sticking with me at the moment, so thank you and I promise there will be more posts heading into the festive season. With my birthday and trip to New York next week I really won't have an excuse for content... (unbelievable amount of excitement doesn't even cut it.)

On to today's post which is an wintry farm themed OOTD. The last outfit I posted was back in the summer so it's definitely time to show you something more winter/arctic appropriate now the temperature has dropped dramatically... I like to dress pretty smartly for work Monday-Friday so the weekends are 100% jeans and jumper territory. This particular day was spent at The BarnYard Farm back in Kentish countryside, trudging through fields and 'awwing' at all the animals, hence the addition of wellie boots- but there's also a great more everyday find here which is the Primark jumper. I'm wary of spending too much on knitwear as I rarely find it to wash well so this £14 bargain was perfect. I love how thick, comfy and oversized it is, as well as the cream/navy contrast pattern. It seems other folks love it too as I've had so many people ask where they can buy it! The jeans are still my eternal favourite ripped Topshop Jamie's, although I am actually on the look out for jeans which don't come with holes in (blame the weather) so any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Add in a parka- with fur included of course- and cable knit bobble hat and 'farm/every winter weekend' chic is complete. You can also see that Kate Moss '107' has returned with a vengeance this year, but I am trying to give other lipsticks a look in too I swear. As long as they have exactly the same colour, finish and longevity, obvs.

What's your go to winter weekend wardrobe?

London Eats | Cereal Killer Cafe

If you hadn't quite realised yet (from the numerous Instagram posts and #LondonLife tweets- apologies for those), I really adore living in good old London town. One of the best things is being able to hop on a tube and go anywhere you fancy every weekend. On Sundays this, of course, tends to be anywhere selling food of the brunch variety and a few weeks ago my sister and I swapped the eggs/waffles for something a little bit different- the Cereal Killer Cafe.

You've probably already heard of CKC, but they have shops in Brick Lane and Camden Stables (our branch of choice) and the basis is a retro 90's throwback to bright bygone cereals from the UK & US mixed together in cocktail concoctions with sweet treat toppings and pop tarts on the side... as a former cereal junkie who has forced herself to favour sensible porridge most mornings, this place is a dream. The choice of cereals is crazy, with everything from lucky charms and froot loops to ice cream pebbles and toffee crisp. You can also go for grown up options like dorset granola and special k, but ain't no one got time for that when something called 'applejacks marshmallows' is on offer. You can choose your own cereal, milk and topping combo, but I opted for a set cocktail called 'Chocopottomus' featuring cocopops, krave, a kinder happy hippo and chocolate milk. Yes it was a complete chocolate sugar rush and also completely incredible. My newly vegan sister went for 'Did I tell you I was vegan?' featuring reese's puffs, oreos and soy milk which she reported was very delicious too. We were a bit more safe with our tea and peach drink choices, but there are retro fizzy options and a huge selection of pop tarts and toast toppings for anyone who can handle the extra sugar. I have heard other people say they think at around £4 a bowl Cereal Killer Cafe is a bit pricey, but for the cereal selection and fun experience I think it's definitely worth a visit and would probably work even better as a mid afternoon/late night sweet treat. Spoons at the ready.

Where will you be brunching this weekend?

Hello Autumn

Finally, my favourite season of Autumn is in the air and it's also arrived on 'Meg's Boutique'! First up we have two new Autumn videos- a snuggly clothing haul and VLOG where you can meet my gorgeous baby niece and get a glimpse of LUSH's new Christmas collection. Oh yes, it's time to grab a PSL and settle on the sofa for the (whole) season...

What are your favourite things about Autumn?

70's Inspired GRWM

Well hello! Despite not posting in these parts for the best part of the month I'm still alive and kicking and coming to you today with something rather blue and 70's inspired! September has just been the craziest month what with fashion week and work events and enjoying London night life probably a tad too much... but I'm back and feeling very motivated to create lots of lovely content for the coming Autumn/Winter months so please do bare with me and thank you if you've stuck around until now, you're an incredibly lovely bunch. 

Have you been rocking the 70's blue lash look?
