One of the perks of being a blogger is being invited to events, to try different things and by different things I obviously mean food. When I first started blogging I never thought I'd branch out and venture into writing restaurant reviews or anything remotely similar for that matter. But you know what they say, you won't know whether you like it or not until you try and now that I've tried it, I can safely say I bloody love it. Which is why, when citizenMag reached out offering me to try one of their recently reviewed eateries around London I didn't think twice. Presented with a multitude of choice, I picked the very unique Pix Bar in Notting Hill, and off we went to try it out.

October not only sees the beginning of fall and bring us one step closer to Christmas, it is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. October highlights a worldwide annual campaign involving thousands of organisations, to emphasise the importance of breast cancer awareness, education and research. Breast cancer has affected my loved ones in the past, not anyone in my actual family but friends who are just as close, and thankfully all of them have won the battle against it! Thanks to wonderful organisations around the world, they were able to get the help they needed, not just physically but also mentally, which proves how important their work truly is for those in need in such difficult times.

Winter is on the fast approach, the days are getting shorter, natural light is becoming scarce and before we know it, temperatures will barely be reaching two significant figures, fun huh! Whilst I don't particularly enjoy having frozen hands, toes and nose I always look forward to winter so I can buy myself a new coat (not that I really need another but #shopaholic). With dropping temperatures, it's time to ditch the capes, blanket scarves and trench coats we were getting away with until now and opt instead for something a little warmer, ready for the snow that is on the way (apparently Britain is going to face its coldest winter in a good number of years, yikes!). Here is a concise list of the hottest outwear options for you this winter; you're welcome! :)

Doing my make-up and getting dolled up is quite possibly one of my favourite things about this colder season. Add to that list Netflix marathons, wearing lots and lots of layers, burning my favourite candles and all the pair of boots I can
buy wear and I have my perfect autumn. I have always been a summer person, but fall has this way of warming its way in to my heart that no other season has. Plus when it comes to beauty, everything becomes easier when the weather turns chilly outside; forget having make-up run down you face, oily t-zones and sweaty foreheads! Fall also means I can be braver with colour; my darker lip shades come out to play, as do my glittery eyeshadows, both of which are proving to be popular beauty trends for the season! If you want to know about some other trends too, keep reading!

My weekend outfits can almost always be defined in two adjectives; comfy and cosy, especially with fall finally hitting hard. Which is why I am happy to see Pleated Skirts not going anywhere this season, talk about comfy yet stylish. I wore pleats in the spring, last fall and this year I'm at it again. There's nothing more feminine than a piece that has pretty pleats, so you can imagine my excitement when I saw this ladylike skirt being a hit on fall 2016-2017 catwalks. Coming in silver and gold at Gucci, in lurex at Max Mara, in colour blocks at Tommy Hilfiger and in velvet at Valentino, it's safe to say that pleats are once again having a moment in fashion.

You will agree with me when I say that autumn is the perfect season to refresh our wardrobe. With new fall trends taking over the fashion world, we fashion bloggers want to try new outfit combinations and styles but truth is, we can barely fit anything else in our closets. This is particularly true for me and with the tiny wardrobe and one set of drawers I have in my room, trying to squeeze in a new piece is always a struggle, let alone a whole new outfit.

The blogging world has gone absolutely mad with the arrival of autumn. From fall fashion hauls to berry themed make-up tutorials, autumn is the blogger's dream season (apart from the lack of natural light) and rightfully so. Think of all the things we have been looking forward to this season; TV shows finally coming back, all the cosy jumpers we can wear, festivities being just around the corner - have I mentioned 78 days until Xmas?! And whilst these are great, we all know fall also brings heavy rainfall, cold and extremely windy weather conditions, not to be mention...germs everywhere. That's right, fall brings a sudden rise to the number of sick people, suffering with a cold or the flu, and if you're sitting in an extremely packed tube every day like myself, your odds of not getting sick are not looking good. Which is why I thought on today's post I'd bring a few health tips proven to boost your immune system during the colder months. I'm no expert, but I did some research and I hope you find these helpful!
