A Winter Classic: Fur & Leather (Faux Of-Course)

The name of this post says it all, fur and leather, both faux, is a true winter classic combination. Faur fur is one of those winter trends that will always be around in one form or another. From big and fuzzy fur coats to gilets like the one I am wearing, the way is to snuggle up in faux fur to make a statement. Best yet, not only does it you keep you right on trend but also very warm (which is exactly what I need these days as it is freezing!).

Maybelline Superstay 7 Days Gel Nail Color: 7-Day Promise True?

After 3 months of non-stop shellac, it was time to give my nails (and my bank account) a break. As much as I love Essie as a brand for nail polish, you will agree with me that it isn’t the most affordable, so I knew a trip to Boots to find something equally as good but for a lower price tag was in order. Probably mission impossible, but after speaking to a colleague of mine and commenting on how nice her nails looked (and how horrible mine were), she mentioned how great the Maybelline varnishes were and I thought I'd give them a try, and with the 3 for 2 offer that Boots always seem to have running, it was a no-brainer. I've featured my more recent manis on Instagram and a lot of you have commented on how pretty the shades were and wanting to know more about the range in general, so here is my comprehensive review on the range!

Head-to-Toe in Burgundy

One colour that is always associated with fall is burgundy and year after year I seem to love it even more. It is one those colour that doesn't get old and you know that for many winters ahead, it is the one you can trust to return stronger than ever. This season, red tones have marked a strong presence in fashion, dominating autumn/winter 2017 shows with brands such as Givenchy, Max Mara and Gucci sending down the runways wine, red and all-burgundy looks. I love a bit of blood or cherry red for fall, but if the thought of wearing these rather bright shades is a little too much,  not only is burgundy a universally flattering shade, it is super versatile and easy to pair with other colours as it goes well with black, grey and white. And if you're into the burgundy colour like me, do it head-to-toe too!

5 Beauty Goodies That I Love (And You're Going To Too!)

It's been a while since I've talked anything beauty related over on this blog of mine and today that is about to change. Despite shying away from the subject these past few months, I have continued to try new products, most of which landed on my doorstep. I have tried to contain myself for about a year now and not buy unessential things, only replacing products that run out and goodies I can really justify the need (or "the want"). Which is why I am glad to have found new favourites amongst the load I received and today I wanted to share these with you. Keep on reading to find out what products I've been loving lately!

How To Style a Velvet Blazer This Season

Good news for those who added velvet pieces to their wardrobe last season or in case you missed it last fall, the look is back (and better!) for another year. Velvet continues to permeate the wardrobes of A-listers, from Kendall to Amy Adams and it is a particularly hot fabric for red-carpet affairs throughout the colder months. I personally love the trend on a blazer jacket, as it is truly the easiest way to wear the trend, plus it allows for layering which is absolutely necessary given the weather lately (woke up to one degree Celsius today, say what?!). Here's how to style a velvet blazer this season, no matter what the occasion may be!

Hot Right Now: Chenille, Mustard & Corduroy

If there is one thing I've been doing this fall a lot more than previous years is wear more colour. Despite rocking all-black ensembles for work pretty much every day of the work week, when playtime comes around I want to inject some much-needed colour into my outfits. Which is why I am LOVING the fact that black and grey knits are things of the past and instead, gorgeous yellow and red tones are very much in fashion this fall. Love, love, love!
