VEGAN PUMPKIN COOKIE DOUGH BITES


Last year I made some pumpkin patch cupcakes and created little fondant pumpkins to decorate them with (blog post here). I have been dying to make fondant pumpkins again ever since. I was making cookie dough bites and I thought that they'd be the prefect size and shape for creating pumpkins! I found a cookie dough recipe online and adapted it so that it was vegan and also to my taste preferences. I made plain chocolate chip cookie dough but you could add spices like cinnamon, nutmeg or if you can get your hands on pumpkin spice add that to make them more festive.

NEW AUTUMN ROOM DECO


If you have followed me online for a while you will know that I love to switch up my bedroom decor every single season. My room furniture is quite plain and boring but that allows me to add in any colours I want so I love incorporating new seasonal decorations to keep my room feeling fresh! In this post I'm going to show you just how I've done that this autumn. If you would like to see how I decorated my bedroom for autumn last year you can read the post here.

AUTUMN TO DO LIST


Autumn is quite possibly my favourtie season, I love everything to do with it, the colours, fashion, halloween, hot chocolates and the exciting run up to Christmas. I have created a little list of things I want to do this season, and as I love reading these types of posts so thought I'd share mine with you today!

THIRD YEAR UNIVERSITY ROOM TOUR


I am in my third and final year of university (thank goodness) this year so this will be the last year I'm staying in student accommodation (also thank goodness). I took photos of the room I've had every year just for my memories mainly but I even made a Youtube video of my room last year when I was making videos consistently. Since I'm not making videos anymore and just concentrating on blogging I thought I'd share with you my last student room in this post. I am in the same building and actually the same exact room that I was in last year so if you want to see a more in depth look at the room layout you can watch last years room tour video here. I just wanted to show you what I've done to decorate it and make it look more homely this year.

WHATS IN MY UNIVERSITY BAG


I am going back to university next week to start my third year, I can't believe I am going into my final year already, it has gone by so quick! It just feels like yesterday when I was nervously walking to my first class in a strange city 2 hours from home, but it has been so worth it! In todays post I thought I'd show you what I take to university with me with a whats in my uni bag post. I love reading these types of posts and watching these YouTube videos, so hopefully you'll find this some what as interesting as I do!

MINI VEGAN OREO CHEESE CAKES


Ever since Sainsbury's released their vegan cream cheese I have wanted to try and make cheese cakes with it and today I finally have! I made oreo flavoured ones as there also vegan and just taste so blooming delish! I have made mini ones as they're quite sickly so it would be easy to overindulge on these if they were a normal sized cheese cake, these mini ones are just the perfect treat size. I love making vegan versions of 'normal' food to prove that you can still have all of your favourite foods when you're vegan and they're just as delicious!

TWO URBAN DECAY NAKED HEAT EYESHADOW LOOKS


I was one of those people who got sucked in by Urban Decays first Naked palette, it has been a staple in my makeup collection for years. Then they released a second one and I bought that one too, but I never used it as much as the first one, so when they released the third naked palette I didn't buy it as I didn't think I'd use it. I didn't pay much attention to the others that they released after that as I didn't think I needed them. But when I saw the Naked Heat palette I knew I had to have it as soon as I saw it! My absolute favourite colours for anything especially make up are warm, orange tones and this palette is just that! The shades in this palette are versatile and go together so well, I have created two eyeshadow looks, one day time and one more dramatic look.

OLIVIA BURTON VEGAN WATCHES


I like having a few different watches as I like to mix and match depending on how I'm feeling and what I'm wearing. With so many different styles its hard to choose just one so why not have a few?! I have lusted over Olivia Burton watches for years but never thought I'd be able to get one as the majority are leather straps. Until my mum noticed that there are some styles available in vegan leather! I love that some high end and designer brands are now offering a choice to customers whether they want genuine leather or vegan friendly ones. Olivia Burton watches are always very feminine with floral designs. But the new 'animals' collection features bee embellishments, cats, owls, birds and my personal favourite bunnies! My mum and I both got one of the bunny design watches each and I wanted to share them with you all as they're too cute not too!

A WEEK WITH ANIMALS


A small fraction of you reading this post may know that on occasion, I work at an animal sanctuary to look after the animals when the owners are away on holiday. This week I have been doing that again but also house sitting and looking after their dogs, as well as all of the sanctuary animals. So because I haven't been at home at all this week I didn't have photos ready for the post I had planned. So I thought instead of stressing about not having the photos, I would change the post for this week and just share with you some photos of the animals in a bit of a follow me around type post like some people do as YouTube videos. I take absolutely hundreds of photos every time I'm here as I just cant help my self, they're all so cute! I have no idea if anyone is interested in this kind of post but I like creating posts for myself that I can look back on otherwise these photos would just end up in my phone camera roll never to be seen again.

UNIVERSITY STATIONERY HAUL


In September I will be going into my third and final year of university so I thought I would go all out and buy some really nice stationary to help get me through the most difficult year. To some getting my stationery organised now might be a bit too soon but I like to be prepared and its just one less thing to worry about for when I move back to York in September. It's already August so it will no doubt be September before I know it, so its best for me to get it all sorted now and I'm glad I got some of these items early as I haven't seen them in store since!
