An Autumn Walk

Hi everyone!

So I've been waiting for weeks on end for the leaves to change colour enough to go on an autumn walk and this weekend seemed to be the first one possible. 

My family and I headed off to Leith Hill so go on the walk. 

We decided to go in the morning and drove to some nearby hills. It wasn't that cold so I was a bit sad but it was still really fun!

I have always loved the idea of dark lipstick but have never actually been brave enough to try it, but I decided today was the day so I went for it and I love the colour I think it's perfect for autumn/winter! This lipstick is from Maybelline and the colour is Divine Wine.

For my eyes I did a simple gold-toned look using a couple of different palettes and I might be doing a tutuorial on my YouTube channel soon so stay tuned :)

My sister and I wanted to do lots of fun things this year during the different seasons that you can remember as really cute days (because we're becoming overly-sentimental) and this will definitey be one of my cute memories of the year!

I decided to go pretty monochrome for my outfit because I wanted my lip colour to really stand out. I chose to wear a polo neck jumper from Zara which I recently bought. I absolutely love this because it feels really wintery and the material is so soft and comfy! 

With the polo neck I also wore some black jeans from Zara. I have bought so many pairs of trousers for years and years and I have never really found and that fit well until... Zara!! I am in love with Zara right now and I definitely won't be buying my trousers from anywhere else because they fit so well and are also super soft!

Thank you for reading!




September London Fashion Weekend

Hi everyone!

Last week I was lucky enough to go to London Fashion Weekend at the Saatchi Gallery in Sloane Square. I had never been to the Saatchi Gallery before but thought it was a good location apart from when it got quite crowded inside!

As we bought Gold Tickets we were able to see two catwalk shows, one design and the other trend.

The first catwalk we saw was the trend show, where the trends for spring/summer 2016 were displayed by pieces by different designers. The first trend was animal prints. I think a plain outfit with a animal print piece of clothing can look really cool and sophisticated so I'm definitely on board with this and am looking forward to searching for some animal prints in the high street shops.

The next trend was red whether that's crimson or maroon. 

I loved how they presented this trend in so many ways, like the picture above where the model is wearing a leather jacket and hat.

The outfit above is one of my favourites from this trend. At first I thought I would hate an all red outfit but I thought the above pieces were put together so well and I thought that all the different shades complemented each other.

Although it wasn't part of the trend I love the sunglasses the above model is wearing and am currently on the hunt for some similar!

Suede is one of my favourite things at the moment whether it's a skirt or a dress. I am in love with this trend and can't wait to suede up my spring/summer '16!

Between shows we wondered around the different rooms and had a look at all the collections. This was so fun and we had a great time in Sunglasses Hut, trying on all the different glasses. Although we didn't buy any, we made up for it in Maybelline where we indulged and hopefully I will be putting up a post soon, incorporating some of the products.

The design show we saw was by Christopher Raeburn. This was a great collection, inspired by the theme of water and the ocean.

The thing I loved about this question was that he included pops of colour with the orange which really brightened up the catwalk.

Something which Christopher is famous for is using old materials to create an item out of. I thought this was a really cool aspect of his designs as I've never seen any other designers do this before.

The finale was really fun to watch and it was great to see all the designs next to each other.

I was so sad that it was our last show but I loved watching both of them and am so glad we got to see them!

The whole day was amazing and the icing on the cake (or should I say the cream on the scone...) was having a cream tea lunch afterwards! 

London Fashion Weekend is always so much fun and now I'm so excited for the next one!
