October Favourites

I actually cannot believe that October is coming to an end. The week’s have been flying in and before we know it we’ll be celebrating Christmas! I’m so excited for Halloween, I just love seeing the decorations. I think I’ll just opt for a nice takeaway and some drinks all while indulging in some scary films. I have been trying my best to save as I have so much going on at the minute. I’m hoping to update my technology gadgets, a new camera and laptop are on the cards so I must save like no other as they’re not cheap! That being said, I have managed to build up a nice little favourites corner of products, clothes and accessories to share with all of you today.

Beauty:

I recently invested in a new paint pot from MAC in the shade, Groundwork. It’s very Kylie Jenner esque for all of you 90’s fans. I use Painterly as a neutral base however I wanted a darker shade for a more deep vampy look. They are such good base tones and make blending out my shadows effortless! I’ve been absolutely loving red nail polish again. It’s such a classic look and my favourite colour to wear during Autumn. When Winter comes I usually opt for a much darker shade. It’s from Marc Jacobs and I recently featured it on the blog, here. I’ve been kicking it old school a lot with my trusty Benefit bronzer, Hoola. It’s such a universal shade and again is so easy to blend. I use it to warm up my face and as a light base shade for when I am contouring. I’ve been on the search for a new daytime foundation and opted for the L’Oréal Infallible matte collection. I’ve only been using it for a week or so but so far I’m really enjoying it. The colour match is perfect and it has a great last power, not very many touch ups required however as I have such oily skin I do need to work on my T – zone but other than that I love it.

My final beauty favourite for this month has been my Zoeva palette in, Coco Blend. It’s warm neutral collection with some beautiful deep reds and browns thrown into the mix. I’m such a sucker for a buttery texture with my eye shadows and this palette is no expection. The pigmentation is good however I would suggest mixing some Fix+ from MAC if you’re looking to create a spotlight eye as the highlight shades need a little help. Other than that I still absolutely adore this palette.

Style:

You’re all probably fed up from seeing my camel coat and shoes from, Next but they’re by far my favourite key pieces for this season. I featured them on the blog a few week’s ago ( you can read it here) and I haven’t stopped wearing them. The shoes are so comfortable to wear and the coat is incredibly chic and easy to style. When I was in Dublin a little while ago, I stocked up on some Pandora and Mango goodies. The lovely girls at Pandora invited me down to see their new Christmas collection where I was kindly gifted with this rose gold feather ring. I already have the matching necklace and I was dying to get the ring. I absolutely love it, it’s a beautiful statement piece while giving off a pretty delicate vibe too. I also ventured into Mango and picked up some gorgeous Autumn pieces including this floor length grey cardigan. Apologies that you can’t see all of it, I’m planning on shooting a look with this very soon on the blog!

Photography:

In celebration of Halloween, I wanted to share a snap or two from my favourite holiday. Last year I was in Salem for the festivities and had an amazing time checking out the town. It was an unbelievable experience and my real life, Hocus Pocus. Definitely need to back back again for a visit!

Have any of you got any plans for Halloween?! I love scrolling through Instagram to see how much effort people put into their costumes, particularly the beauty bloggers that I follow. Have a great one no matter what you get up to!

Best of 2014: Holiday – Part One: NYC

So my amazing adventure has come to end. I got to spend precious time with my man friend in his new place in Boston and I spent some fabulous days in NYC. I’m currently sitting bored in London Heathrow dreaming of being back in the states, the luxurious side of travelling!  😉

I’m hoping to go back out to the States in October though so let the countdown commence! For now, I’m going to share some snaps from my trip to the Big Apple with all of you lovelies! ♥

My Week on Instagram

The closer it gets to Christmas, the less time I have to get things done: blogging, work, appointments, gift shopping, social life etc! I kind of just want to pause time for a bit so I can focus on a few things and find some time to breathe. This week for me is all about my brows and hair, they are in dire need of maintenance. Come Friday, I’ll hopefully feel pretty polished.

Hopefully for next weeks post, I’ll be able to share my new interior project with you all. I have been doing a little redecorating at home and I’m in the mist of jungle madness as everything is scattered everywhere. I’m planning to have the majority of it completed by the weekend!

P.s… How horrible is this weather? It does not feel like Christmas is just around the corner with this nasty rain. Anywho, have a great day!

My Week on Instagram ♥

It’s been quite a busy week for me. I spent it jet setting between Boston and New York. I visited my two favourite cities during the Summer, so I was excited to go back for Autumn. Each time I go back, I find new parts and places to explore.

Last time I was in New York, it was all about shopping for me. I went out to Woodbury Common in New Jersey and shopped up an absolute storm. However this time I was much more the tourist. I went up the Empire State building, and it was magnificent, I took a trip down to the World Trade memorial, spent a morning exploring Central Park and lived it up in Times Square. I’m not going to lie, I may have shopped just a tad, it would have been rude not to!

Back in Boston, it is a much more relaxed and laid back city. Once again, I spent a lot of my time in Sephora (expect a lot of beauty posts soon) and I spent Halloween in Salem which was absolutely brilliant. Halloween is my favourite time of year, so I enjoyed taking in the culture surrounding the witches. It was a magical week for me (pardon the pun) and I cannot wait to go back to visit in the New Year.

I have to admit that this week my Instagram post is very much American themed. I absolutely loved my visit to the States and I was very lucky to visit and see so many beautiful places. It was a dream come true to spend Halloween in Salem, my real life Hocus Pocus moment!
