Wear | Life | Eats

We finally made it to payday!  5 long gruelling weeks it was but we got there so I went out and spent some moola.  Obvs.  So here it this week's WLE.
I went out after work on Friday and the weather was still rather warm so I wore a black dress with fishnets, a black coat and my little cat shoes seeing as it was Halloween!  We sat outside and I wasn't really cold at all.

Saturday night was a friend's birthday and again we were outside so I made sure to wrap up and put some tights on, the first time in about 6 months!  I wore a black bodycon skirt with a crop top and my beautiful boyfriend coat that I saw Millie Mackintosh wearing... yep, still obsessed.
Friday night I went to this bar at Sloane Square.  It was really buzzing with people and had a nice vibe.  I like it around that part of town but no I didn't bump into anyone from Made in Chelsea!
Saturday was a completely different area of town.  I went to a bar at Elephant and Castle for my friend's birthday.  It was a really cool outdoor bar with huge grounds, two stall selling hot Mexican food and even a stall doing face paints!  It was quite bizarre but really good and I would definitely go again.  Apparently they are going to get some fire pits for when it gets cold.  The bar was called Paperworks.
As I was out most of the weekend in bars and not eating out I decided to do a little home cooking of comfort food on Sunday.  I found a recipe on which was a mushroom and spinach lasagne.  Two of my favourite vegetables!  It came out delicious and I made enough to have for the next 2 nights!  I really like this website as mushrooms are my favourite thing to eat so I've made quite a lot of the recipes on here.
I hope you all had a good weekend/week.

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
