September Favourites

It's officially 1 October which means I get to say 'OMG where did September go/where is this year going?!'.  But seriously?
Here is everything I have been loving throughout the month of September.
I always forget to add accessories to my outfit, even though I really love them.  I'm normally in too much of a rush and don't have time to add anything but this month I've made a conscious effort to try and remember at least to throw on some bracelets and I've been really loving stacking them together.  I've got a few Links of London ones which is a classic brand that I love because it's Made in England and I'm all about supporting English brands and our economy.  The black one I bought when in Sydney at a market by The Rocks.  I saw a lot of peace signs in Sydney and so I wanted to get this as a reminder of my time there.  I also got a peace sign tattoo at the famous Bondi Ink but that's another story!

I'm a HUGE music fan so I'm not going to go on and on about every song I've been loving and listening to this month but instead tell you what I've downloaded and if you have any suggestions you think I'd like then leave me a comment below.

This month I went to Hawksmoor which was bloody amazeballs and I wrote about it in this post so if you want to know more, check that out.
I also visited The Good Life Eatery in Chelsea because I saw Millie Mackintosh goes there a lot and we all know how much I love her haha.  It was really nice, quite small but we managed to get a table and I ordered an egg white omelette with spinach and courgettes and also a fruit smoothie.

I also went to Sketch but that was more for the epic cocktails!  Check the cocktail list out here.
My skin has not been great this month.  I seem to have had a few break outs because I think I've been burning the candle at both ends too much and not looking after myself properly, poor Lauren!  So I've been reaching for the concealer at a bit more than usual and my favourites have to be Mac Prolong Wear, this is high coverage and looks flawless.  I also like the Collection one for brightening and Boiing by Benefit to cover redness.
I'm not normally a candles person.  I have quite a few in my flat but I never burnt them until recently.  I find it very calming sitting in a room with a scented candle and the flame flickering away.  It's also nice to have them round the bath.  Always remember to blow them out at the end of the night though!
So those are my favourites, what have you been loving in September?

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
