A Typical Transeasonal Outfit by River Island

It's that really tricky time of year, where we're both in the current season but looking into the next season also. Compounded with the very tricky British weather it can be an awkward period to pull of something which sets as transeasonal.

You want to look for something that keeps with the Autumnly vibes but also takes you into Winter. 

Below I've selected a few key pieces from River Island



The fine knitwear jumper is classed as a bright yellow, however it gives of more of a tangerine appearance, which really sets in well for the current and upcoming months.

River Island Bright Yellow High Neck Rib Top £22

The leopard print pencil skirt is so on trend with animal prints still really big for AW13 and beyond.

River Island Brown Leopard Print Scuba Pencil Skirt £20

Complete the look with a black quilted bowler bag

River Island Black Quilted Bowler Bag £40

British Model of the Year Cara Delevingne lights up Paris Fashion Week

She's already been crowned Birtish Fashion Model of the year and after already gracing London Fashion Week, she's working the catwalks in Paris. 

The 21-year-old has been compared with the likes of Kate Moss and working the catwalks for Valentino and Chanel in Paris you can totally understand why. 

Her name? If you've not already heard it is, Cara Delevingne.

I'm a big fan of Zombie films, especially The Walking Dead so just had to announce this to all 16 and 17 year  olds out there. For a chance to be part of something very special please read below!!!! 


The National Citizen Service (NCS) is launching a zombie app and feature film, which gives young people the chance to ‘run the show’

NCS is shooting a video to raise awareness of their Autumn programme and enlist young people to sign up, get involved and say YES to NCS. The film will be zombie themed, which will coincide with Halloween and appeal to the target audience.

Along with the video NCS are generating an app that will allow young people to ‘say yes’ to a new opportunity and put themselves forward for the chance to gain experience working behind the scenes of film production or star in the film as a zombie. Roles will include:

·    Make-up Assistant
·    Production Assistant
·    Camera Assistant
·    Zombies x7

NCS (National Citizen Service) is a once in a lifetime opportunity open to all 16 and 17 year olds across England. It is a unique three week full-time programme, plus 30 hours committed to a community project, focused around fun and discovery that benefits both young people and society.

Key Timings:

Warm up those winter Blues with a Stylish Onesie!!!

Yes, unfortunately it's that time of year again. The days begin to shorten, you start to feel the chill in the early mornings as you head off to work, and before long you're bringing out your trusted blankie, coupled with your funky water bottle shaped like a teddy...or is that just me :-) But however you try and keep warm this winter you can't really go too wrong with a Onesie. 


If you've not come across them yet....well where have you been!!!! As everyone from Primark to Marks & Spencers stocks them and not forgetting the tele antics of pretty much all of the TOWIE cast to celebs like Peter Andre, the entire cast of One Direction and not forgetting pretty much every student I know has one.

So I thought I would look to get a head start this year and get mine in early.  I came across Luna Look  ( They have a small but very trendy selection and I opted for the Navy Blue with Aztec Print one. 

Delivery was very good and I was provided with a tracking number, so I could see exactly when my order would be delivered......And within a couple of days I unpacked the onesie from a neatly packaged clear poly bag and was soon all wrapped up in my Aztec printed Blue Onesie. 

The onesie is very comfortable. The zip is easy to manage and you can easily get in and out of, with one seamless action.

Onesies don't generally come with a size guide as they generally are sold as unisex. So they are not really designed to be figure hugging, as it's main aim is comfort. I would always recommend to go a size larger than you are. As a general rule if you're a size small perhaps opt for a medium. However if you're super savvy with your sizes you can always check the website. 

The "onesies" all about having fun along with a bit of comfort, but you can always mix in a bit of style for good measure. I'd highly recommend Luna Look if you're looking for that comfortable yet stylish onesie.  You can see there range here
