It's The Most Wonderful Time of The Year: Christmas at Covent Garden

I honestly cannot believe we're less than a month away from Christmas. I'll spare you from the cliché comments like "where has the year gone", "time has flown by", etc, etc. Instead, today I wanted to share a little bit about the lovely day I had with the husband in central London this past weekend. I honestly cannot remember the last time we had gone into London for the weekend (we've clearly become far too lazy after we got married) but determined to make Christmas last as long as possible, I proposed and planned a day to see the sights, enjoy some of the Christmas spirit the city already has to offer and have a great meal out. I can anticipate that all things were successfully accomplished and if you want to see what our day looked like, then keep on reading!

Trying Cult Beauty Brands For The First Time: Huda Beauty

I recently started a new series on the blog, Trying Cult Beauty Brands For The First Time and you all seemed to really enjoyed it so here I am back with another. Read the first instalment here where I talk about a few products from the Balm and Beauty Blender, two amazing brands I now understand what the hype is about. Today, I wanted to try my very first eyeshadow palette from the brand Huda Beauty and see whether I've been missing out or not (spoiler alert, I have!). I'm sure you've heard of it before but in case you've been living under a rock for the past 2 years or so, beauty sensation Huda Kattan launched an eponymous range of award-winning beauty products and has quickly become a global phenomenon. Ranging from all things make-up to skincare and even fragrances, Huda Beauty brings some of the best eyeshadows in the market, trendy lip kits, amazing falsies and is now dipping its toes in base products too like its fairly recently released foundation and concealer, both of which I have on my wishlist. To commence this new beauty journey for me and given my brother was in Portugal where there is a Sephora in every corner, I asked him to pick me up possibly one of the most sold products the range has, a mini obsessions palette, more specifically the Mauve Obsessions palette. Read on to see what I think about it!

All About Animal Print: Snake Print Boots

Trends come and go (and come and go again), and more than ever we've seen this happening lately in fashion. With trends from the 80s and 90s resurfacing it's true what they say, the old is the new. But some trends never really go out of style; they may be more popular one season than another but, as a whole, they're pieces we probably have in our wardrobes all year round and can rely on when putting a killer outfit together.

This season, amongst all the things that will have their five minutes of fame, we saw the return of the animal print (which seems to be sticking around a LOT longer than five minutes). I've talked about the leopard print endlessly here, and how it is a trend that keeps popping up and its updates always feel relevant. In a similar fashion, the snake print is also having its moment, perhaps not quite as big as a leopard, but still worth the attention. Keep on reading!

Fall Go-To Outfit: Knee-High Boots & Midi Dress

Oops, I did it again. I've gone and added yet another pair of boots to the collection (well, truth be told 2 pairs but more on that in an upcoming post). There is a perfectly reasonable explanation behind my recent addition and that is the TV hit show, Friends. Despite being a little longer than 14 years since Friends aired its last episode, this show never gets old. I kid you not, but I must have rewatched the entire thing a good number of times by now, and a couple of weeks back I started it again on good ol' Netflix. Yup, I am a massive Friends fan, I know lines by heart and I love everything about it. Some say the show is somewhat dated, but you will agree with me that the fashion isn't and Rachel Green's wardrobe, especially in season 6 onwards, is still on the money. I recently saw the episode The One With Joey's Porche in which Ross and Rachel try to get an annulment and Rachel is wearing THE most fabulous pair of high boots as they march down to their lawyer's office. The boots (see them here) were glossy, knee-high and with a heel sturdy enough to spend a day stomping around in; she obviously looked fabulous, the boots were absolutely dreamy and were exactly what I wanted in my wardrobe for this winter. So when fashionworld.co.uk got in touch about a collaboration and I saw their boots stock I knew it was the perfect opportunity to get me a pair, so I did!
