Wear | Life | Eats

This is more of a catch up of what I've been up to these last few weeks as I realised I've haven't done one of these posts in a while and there's definitely been stuff going on!
We find ourselves slowly entering Fall and the weather is starting to get a tad colder, especially in the evenings so I have been digging out my blazers to throw over my summer outfits which make the perfect transitional addition to take us through to Autumn.  There are some lovely pieces on the high street at the moment.  There is a cute mustard coloured dress in Tesco that I want for work here.  I also bought these brogues from Next recently because I didn't have any black ones and I thought these ones were super cool with their little platform.
Make sure you're following me on Instagram (@wonky_lauren) because I'll be doing outfit posts everyday in tribute to London Fashion Week.  I'll also be attending LFW this weekend so look out for my blog post next week.
I'm still cracking away at my new job.  I'm working a longer hours and am absolutely shattered most nights but I love it so much I really can't complain.  I almost feel like I want to skip to work most days because I'm the happiest I have been in my career in a long time, is that sad?  Lol.  It's going really well.  I'm starting to get back into a healthy eating/exercise regime as that kind of went out the window when I first started my new role.  They have just started doing Insanity classes at my gym so I will be trying that this week, I will let you know how I get on!
I went to Hawksmoor last week which as a vegetarian would not be my first choice but let me tell you... So I went because my friend who is a huge meat lover wanted to go and for those of you not familiar with Hawksmoor it's like a glorified steakhouse and in fact they only had one vegetarian option on the menu which was not even very nice.  THEN, the dessert menu came over and all was forgiven.  OMG I have never seen a dessert menu like it.  There was so much choice I literally wanted all of it and there was so many caramel options and caramel is my favourite thing in the world.  I honestly think someone wrote that dessert menu especially for me haha!  Anyway, I didn't want to have everything, I've already eaten waaaaaaaayyy too much these past weeks so I went for the peanut butter shortbread as it came with salted caramel ice cream so I kinda figured I was getting two for one there ;)

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
