Wear | Life | Eats


I did a lot of eating out in London this weekend.  We had such good weather I thought I would make the most of it.  Saturday I went to Heron Tower for sushi and cocktails and as it was Saturday night I wanted to dress up a bit more so I wore this beautiful red dress from H&M worn as a skirt with a black jumper.  I then teamed it with my black Kurt Geiger heels and thought I would get the legs out as I'd fake tanned!

Sunday I went to an Argentian restaurant and I wanted to go for a more relaxed look so I wore these white ripped jeans that were given to me by my mum and I actually put the rips in myself.  I wore it with this dark grey t-shirt from Forever 21 that has sequins on the shoulder and matched some glittery flats from Primark.


I've been quite stressed at work the last few months and just feeling a bit 'meh' in myself in general.  This last week has really brightened up in terms of the weather though and it's made me feel a whole lot better in myself.  It's made me feel really positive and cheery.  I also had my appraisal at work last week and this has made me feel more motivated and focused.  I think sometimes you just need to talk things through with people and set yourself goals to reach.  This can make you feel a lot better about the future.


As I said, I did a lot of eating out this weekend.  I don't think I actually ate at home at all, whoops!  Friday night I went to a friends and she cooked us dinner.  She's half Italian and I love Italian food so I was expecting something yummy, I wasn't disappointed!  She made a pasta salad which consisted of spinach, tomatoes, mozzarella, olives and penne in a pesto sauce.  So nice!  I'm definitely going to be trying this.  

Saturday I went to Sushi Samba in the City.  The atmosphere here alone is enough to bring the people in but the food and drink is also amazing.  I would definitely recommend.

Sunday we went to Cau in Blackheath.  It's done out really nice and I love Blackheath anyway for it's traditional quaint vibe.  The menu wasn't great for vegetarian options, however, but I ended up going for a small plate of tomato and goats cheese brushetta and a side of truffled mac and cheese.  Cheese overload!

I hope you all had a good weekend.  Lauren xx

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
