New In: 4U2 Cosmetics


As you know I'm pretty much the biggest lipstick obsessive going. If there's one thing I change daily in my makeup routine it's always the shade of lippie that I'm rocking. So you can imagine my utter delight when the lovely people at 4U2 Cosmetics sent through their entire new Lipaholic collection* (named after me, I'm pretty sure!). 

4U2 is currently in the process of launching in Europe and I am so excited for when these bad boys hit drugstores. There are 14 shades to choose from, from baby pinks to ferocious reds to deep corals, there really is a shade for everyone!

9 Payday Must Haves - September


Top Row

Cat Beret: How cute is this adorable cat beret? I know it's only meant for Halloween but part of me wants to wear it all throughout winter. It also looks seriously soft.

Dress: This dress is super adorable for the Summer to Autumn transition and is the most gorgeous coral shade. You can never have too many body con dresses in my opinion!

Crossbody Bag: Kate Spade never fail to amaze me with their collection of novelty bags, and their perfume inspired ones are some of my favourites ever! This one is particularly gorgeous and I can imagine leaving it on display constantly because it's just so darn pretty!

Middle Row

Gift Set: Zoella is absolutely nailing it with her new releases recently and her new, gingerbread-inspired beauty products have just hit stores. I am seriously in need of the body mist so I can smell like a Christmassy ball of happiness all season. 

Boots: You've probably seen these boots all over every bloggers social media but I am obsessed! They're just so darn beautiful and despite their statement appearance they will go with pretty much anything.

Glasses: Although I don't need glasses, I absolutely love the look of them and have been after a pair for a while. I absolutely love the shape and style of these ones and think they'll make a great addition to my Autumn wardrobe.

Bottom Row

Leather Jacket: I recently sorted out all my old clothes which meant selling my old leather jacket that was far too big for me. I love the detachable fur collar on this one as it adds something a little bit different! Plus it makes it nice and cosy.

Roll Neck: I've been after a camel coloured roll neck for a while now so I can complete my Autumn capsule wardrobe and this one is just too pretty. It's a beautiful shade of camel as well that's just subtle enough. 

Boots: Another set of boots (what am I like?!) but these ones are a beautiful shade of plum that would look incredible this season. That bow, though!

A Day in Paris with Farfetch


I have to say, when I saw the email about a day trip to Paris with Farfetch, I did a double take, then a scream, and then panicked for a second that they had got the wrong person. I actually couldn't believe it! But, what do you know, within the month I was packed and off to the beautiful city for the second time this year with a bunch of beautiful bloggers.

Why I've Never Been to London Fashion Week


We're currently in the middle of the biggest fashion event of the year (or twice a year). If you're a blogger, or even just anyone who uses social media, you've probably seen something about London Fashion Week on your timeline. It's everywhere. Anyone who's anyone in the fashion industry is there. It's a hive for fashion bloggers from all across the country. 

So, as I sit at home in my pyjamas, watching snippets of shows on Snapchats or the ongoing contest for the best street style snaps, I think to myself...what haven't I gone to London Fashion Week before?

Sugar & Spice


& everything nice

I know we're still reaching heights of 30 here in the UK, but come on, there's no denying everyone can't wait to get into the swing of Autumn now. I've become slightly obsessed with Autumnal clothing recently after I made a promise to myself to embrace the colder months. 

Of course, you all know that I'm a huge fan of Fat Face and everything they put out, so I was so excited when I found out about their 'Sugar and Spice' Autumn range of clothing. I also knew that I wanted the cosiest, most Autumnal photos ever for this post and I have to say I'm pretty pleased with them. *insert all the Autumn leaf emojis here*

Sugar Junction, Manchester


On our second day in Manchester we woke up bright and early and headed out to the Northern Quarter in search of the best breakfast in town. Luckily, I had been given a few recommendations and after some deliberation we decided on visiting Sugar Junction, which not only has the most adorable name ever, but sits right in the heart of the urban Northern Quarter, in the cutest tea room you've ever seen!

The Northern Quarter


Our first day in Manchester turned out to be surprisingly warm and the evening blessed us with a beautiful golden hour as we ventured out into the Northern Quarter. This was a part of Manchester I had heard so much about and I was so excited to explore.

Home Sweet Home, Manchester


Last weekend I took a spontaneous trip to Manchester, just because! I've always wanted to visit more UK Cities and Manchester has been top of my list for some time after seeing quite a few bloggers talking about how awesome it is there.

Why You Should Be Yourself & Nobody Else


Something I've always struggled with is wishing I was someone else. I'm probably not alone here in saying that there have been times when I've looked on the internet at a gorgeous Instagram superstar and just thought, "Wow. Why can't I just be her?"

Endless Summer


On the last day of August, England surprised us all by blessing us with a final day of 30 degree heat. I was happy to embrace it and busted out my most summery ensemble to celebrate.
