Fall 2016 Fashion Trends: Cold Shoulder & Embroidered Denim

As trends tend to do the off-shoulder, which was widely popular in spring and summer, has evolved into different styles. The trend is morphing into cut-out shoulders; one shoulder exposed and bare backs. I reckon the Cold Shoulder trend came about because we weren't ready just yet to say goodbye to exposed shoulders. What stands out for me about this particular tendency compared to its original version is how much more interesting it makes fall outfits. The cold shoulder is the route to sexy, whilst being subtle and is incredibly more versatile than the off-shoulder. Plus, it is said that the shoulder is the only part of a woman's body that doesn't age (let's all believe that), so shoulders exposed are appropriate no matter your age.

Portobello Market Treat: Pix Pintxos Bar in Notting Hill

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.

Wear It Pink: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

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.

Your Complete Guide To This Season's Best (& Hottest) Coats

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! :)

My Top 5 Fall 2016 Beauty Trends

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!

Fall 2016 Fashion Trends: Oversized Knit & Pleated Skirt

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.

Out With The Old, In With The New ft. Boohoo

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.

How To Avoid A Cold Or The Flu This Season

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!

Fall 2016 Fashion Trend: Burgundy & Leopard Print

Autumn is finally upon us and boy let me tell you, I am excited. When I think of fall I think of pumpkin spice latte, binge watching movies all weekend under the covers, all the pretty hats and gloves I can wear, and let's not forget the boots too; those babies are finally coming out to play. Colours are less bright, tones are little darker and autumn after autumn, year after year, if there is one shade I always go back to that has to be Burgundy. Speaking of which, I just bought a jumper in this colour at New Look for £7.99; it's called "boxy jumper" and it is SO soft, so definitely check that out if you're currently as obsessed with cosy jumpers as I am!

My Autumn Beauty Must Haves

When I think of which beauty products to go for in the fall I think of lots and lots of moisturisers to sort out my dry skin, lip balms to avoid chapped lips and heavy duty face creams to ensure my skin is always nourished. I also love wearing darker shades for the lips and eyes; burgundy and wine lipstick shades, and gold/metallic eyeshadows in particular are my favourite. So today I thought I'd share a few new goodies I have been playing around with lately and which are going to be just perfect for fall.
