This past week I have been living vicariously through the posts of fellow bloggers and the amazing daily reports via Vogue, loving the feed from NYFW. The weather of course is predictably cold in New York so it is great to be able to experience it without the chill here on island. These are my Top 10 fashion and beauty picks including makeup with a natural look and bold lip backstage at Donna Karan, and hair styled with sleek ponytails backstage at Carolina Herrera. From my choices, it is obvious to tell my favourite day so far appears to be Day 5! With so many great looks to choose from which designer/designers top your list? Thank you for your comments!
Although style is normally achieved individually and textbook style is not something I normally aspire to, it is often via media sources that we discover style that we would love to replicate in some way, shape or form. Maybe it’s via your favorite blogs to read, the latest issue of the various fashion magazines or purely street style that guides you. I have built a mini library of different books I have purchased or have been gifted that I find great reads when it comes to style. My absolute favourite would have to be Paris Street Style by Isabelle Thomas with illustrations by Frédérique Veysset. I purchased this book (and I have gifted it often) for myself for my very first trip to Paris so that I would know what to expect. I read it cover to cover very quickly on my flight and loved it. In fact, the overriding theme of most of the books I have purchased or received as gifts is Parisian. Ooh la la I do love a little French fashion influence! What media sources inspire you when it comes to fashion? Thank you so much for your comments!
It’s Friday already and again another week flies past! I love my weekends and this one I have lots planned. Hair salon Saturday morning, a bit of shopping, putting together a few outfit posts, some studying (gotta be done) and generally relaxing. This past week it has taken little effort to find my favourite Pins as there was an abundance of great street style (my absolute favourite), so my choices are pretty self-explanatory. With New York Fashion Week on, I am anticipating a lot of great Pins to pop up and can’t wait. Do you have any big plans this weekend? If you do, or if you are planning a chilled weekend, have a good one!
This month I am going back to an old favourite, stocking up on new favourites for travel and sharing a couple of sweet gifts a friend gave me from her trip to Las Vegas! I love prezzies and this adorable Betsey Johnson makeup bag and Minimergency kit will come in very handy.
MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation is an old favourite of mine. I have been using Smashbox Liquid Halo and absolutely love it, but sometimes it’s nice to have a quick compact foundation. Studio Fix comes with its own sponge (stores underneath in its own little compartment) and can be applied dry or damp with the sponge.
L’Occitane Hand & Foot Cream are lush! I was keen to try the foot cream and was so pleased to find the duo in a set perfect for travel. Both contain shea butter and the scent is heavenly.
The Minimergency kit has 17 essential items in it, all tucked into the cutest little bag. Everything from teeny hairspray to dental floss. What more could a girl want in her handbag for the little emergencies!
Maybe you will find a new favourite in one of my favourites! Thank you so much for your comments.
These are a few of my recent favourites. A bit of beauty, some wildlife, a little fashion, food and of course the ever popular sunsets! Link to my full Instagram account in my side bar ⇒. Would love to see you there!
Hello weekend! This week I chose my favorites based upon a number of factors. I like to use Pinterest as inspiration for styling my own outfits and adding to my wardrobe when online shopping. Pinning equates to creating a perfect closet to aspire to in my own little dream world. The black flats are ballet adorable and drove me to order a pair for myself! They look super comfy and the reviews helped to sell me on them. Cute dresses are always on my pin list and these two are styled perfectly. A pin providing black skirt outfit ideas will come in handy as this is a staple in my closet. The black skirt with striped sweater combination is beautiful and who wouldn’t jump for joy looking that great! Finally a great photo of Kate Bosworth and a fun photo of Sarah Jessica Parker are reminders that fashion can be soft and feminine, flirty and fun! What type of pins are your favorites? Thank you so much for your comments, have a great weekend!

With Valentines Day just over a week away I was chatting with friends about what they do for Valentines Day and there were some interesting responses. Some don’t acknowledge the day at all, others keep it simple with flowers or a heart-shaped box of candy, while the majority give it some thought and make it ultra special. These are a few ideas that developed from those conversations on how to spend 14 Feb.
1. Sharing a lovely book of poetry. This one is apparently quite popular;
2. A romantic stroll on the beach or along a snowy trail at sunset;
3. A nice quiet meal at a favourite restaurant;
4. A weekend away to a cozy B&B;
5. A dance class;
6. A movie night in with romantic classics like Gone With The Wind and Casablanca;
7. Cooking a special meal at home and just chilling; or
8. His and her spa treatments.
Hope some of these ideas provide your inner Cupid with a little inspiration!
Skinny denim is still my favourite style when it comes to jeans and now I have found a new crush with these black beauties from Urban Outfitters. I have the same style in the blue denim (here) and when I found them in black I snagged them right away. Really comfortable and very versatile. Here I paired them with my Sincerely Jules Tee (always makes me think of Paris!), my Zara heels and Topshop bag. Next time maybe a blazer and my Sam Edelman Petty ankle boots. Do you have a favourite when it comes to denim? Thank you so much for your comments.
It’s Friday! I am so looking forward to this weekend. Tonight I will meet up with one of my best friends for dinner and some girl chat, so looking forward to it! She is one of my biggest supporters when it comes to my blog and I love sharing my ideas, getting her opinion and just hanging out with her full stop. The rest of the weekend will be spent perusing the book store for travel guides on Italy (on the wanderlust list) and just relaxing. Another way I love to chill is via Pinterest. I could literally spend hours lost in la-la land pinning anything and everything I like, as you may already know if you follow my weekly posts. My favourites this week include fashion and home decor with some great tips tucked away in a few of them. Cool 70’s inspired denim, dressing like a British girl and Spring style staples featuring Olivia Palermo, all made the list via Pins from WhoWhatWear. Totally crushing on great closet space, pretty home decor and a stylish black and white look as well. Finally (and one of my fave fashion influencers) SJP has me green with envy over her arms full of gorgeous shoes! Which one is your favourite? Thanks so much for your comments and have an amazing weekend!
I have been checking my favorite shops out online with a view to picking up a few new things for my closet. Definitely new luggage is on my list as I only ever travel with carry-on and my current bag needs replacing. Other pieces are things that I would like to add to my wardrobe. Comfy denim, a cute uniform style playsuit, askew sweater, short heels for work and a new pair of Chucks. What items are you currently craving? Thank you so much for your comments!
