Autumn ready

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are had a great weekend! 

We've been really spoiled with the autumn weather so far but I always get a little excited when it's time to prepare your wardrobe for fall, which calls for cozy knits and cool boots!

In my books, no autumn wardrobe is complete without a cool parka - especially when living in "rain-prone" London! These waterproof jacket from Parka London is just perfect for dashing around town and long strolls in the park! 

I love pairing the parka with boyfriend jeans, a little cross body bag and these cool Emu Chelsea boots!

Staying hydrated during LFW with BRITA

I just got back from holiday last Friday and dived right into London Fashion Week. 

For the last day of fashion week I kept my outfit casual by wearing boyfriend jeans, white shirt, statement jacket and my dream shoes - the Gucci princetown loafers!

Whilst rushing around Soho the last couple of days I made sure to stay hydrated with the new BRITA Fill&Go water filter bottle

This clever little bottle contains a filter, which cleans tap water and turns it into fresh, clean drinking water. 

It's such a great way to stay hydrate on-the-go plus it's much more environmentally friendly then using regular plastic bottles.

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great start to the week! 

I'm currently in Italy and finally found some time and Wifi to update my blog!

One of my favourite places to visit when in Tuscany is lovely Pietrasanta - It's a cute little town near Lucca! 

If you happen to be there, make sure to stop by at Bar Michelangelo for one of the best cappuccino's and amazing cocktails at night!

I've recently stopped by at the designer outlet near Florence, Barberino, where I found this cute shirt dress (one just can't have enough of these dresses)! 

This personalised basket bag from Manana Jewels is my go to bag this summer, which is perfect for food market shopping!

I've linked some of my favourite autumn shirt dresses over here:

Before my holiday I've stopped by at the lovely guys from Errol Douglas to get my hair summer ready! 

I went for some lighter highlights with Jasmine and a shorter bob with Anna and as always,  I'm super happy with the result!  

This delicate Missoma necklace adds the perfect amount of sparkle!

Good evening and happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! 

You can't beat these lovely summer days we are currently having and it's the perfect occasion to finally wear my long lusted-after pom pom sandals! 

I first spotted these cute IRIS gladiator sandals on the feet of the lovely girls from Belle and Bunty and I knew I had to add them to my summer wardrobe! 

They are handmade in Crete, 100% leather, individually designed and best of all - super soft and comfortable!

Clarins Mix + Match Make up: Bold Lips Look

If I had to pick my favourite piece of makeup it has to be a bright red lipstick! 

I love how a swipe of red lipstick can make you look instantly more put together but it is important to follow a few little tricks for keeping your skin looking flawless and your lips hydrated.

I've teamed up with Clarins to create this bold lip look using their mineral and plant extract enriched products from their Mix + Match Makeup line

Here is how I've achieved this look:

Contoured Complexion (Time: 5 Mins)

  •  Then I apply my Clarins Skin Illusion Foundation by warming it between my palms and smoothing over the face (I'm using shade 105 and I prefer using my finger tips for applying the foundation).
  • After that I put the Instant Concealer over my foundation to hide dark circles under my eyes and on any blemishes.
  •  Next up I contour and sculpt my face using the Bronzing Duo, dusting in a number 3 motion (butterfly wings) from the outer corners of the forehead along the cheekbones and down to the jawline.

Defined Eye (4 Mins)

  • Then I use my Perfect Eyes and Brows Palette, to define and thicken my brows. Firstly,  I apply some brow wax to tame those loose hair. After that I take the powder and run it through my brows natural shape to fill in and brush through with the wand.

Happy Hump Day everyone! I can't believe we are already half way through July ( you wouldn't think so judging by the weather anyways!)

 This is one of my typical on-the go looks atm - I can't wait to finally wear this cute poplin dress on it's own!

And as the weather is being super unpredictable my beloved wedge heels are having a break and instead I'm relying on my fave kicks again - oh British summer how I love you!
