Vintage Walks

I wasn't really sure what to title this blog post, I was trying to be creative.  But basically everything in   London is so historic and vintage that I thought this was the right name for such a post.  So anyway, I was talking a little stroll through one of our beautiful parks and it gave me such inspiration for so many fall and autumnal blog posts.

It also got me thinking that in London we are so blessed with such amazing parks that why not share them with you in case you're every here and like walking in pretty surroundings as much as I do.

Hyde Park

Probably the main park that everyone has heard of and also the one with the most tourists.  It's absolutely huge and has a large boating pond which is great fun in the summer for hiring pedlos etc.

Crystal Palace Park

I had to give this a mention because I went here all the time as a kid.  It's not really one of the main parks but it has a special place for me.  It's great for children too so definitely go here if you have little ones as there's lots for them to do.

St James' Park

One of the royal parks and probably the best kept so you can see why.  I don't find there's as much to do here but if you just want a nice walk after lunch or dinner it can be pretty romantic and scenic.

Greenwich Park

My all time favourite park.  I went here tonnes as a child too and even learnt to ride my bike here.  The Queen has here summer house here and it has a huge hill that when you get to the top you can see all of London.

Richmond Park

This park has actual reindeers.  ACTUAL REINDEERS.  Enough said and great for Christmas time.

Have you visited any of the parks in London?  Which is your favourite?

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
