Suede & Camel

SUEDE & CAMEL SUEDE & CAMEL SUEDE & CAMEL SUEDE & CAMEL SUEDE & CAMEL SUEDE & CAMEL SUEDE & CAMEL Jacket: Boohoo | Jeans: ASOS | Top: Forever 21 | Shoes: Office | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Bag: Primark

Hellooo Autumn! I recently went on a huge shopping spree as the new season came in and I felt like my wardrobe needed an Autumn update. It's safe to say I went a little crazy but now I feel like my urges to spend spend spend have been satisfied. I have been obsessed with incorporating Autumnal hues into my clothing and I feel that this suede camel toned jacket encapsulates that perfectly. It was so reasonably priced and I know this jacket will be worn pretty much everyday until it gets too cold in England and I have to opt for a heavier coat. This fringed Primark bag adds another texture to the outfit and keeps with the whole seventies vibe. I love me a good Primark bag!
I also recently bought these Office cross over sandal heels. I wanted a pair of heels that were casual, yet I could wear everyday to smarten a look up. I seriously love the wooden heel on these and they are so comfortable. 
Finally, I feel like these Rose-Gold tinted Ray-Ban's complement the whole tone of the outfit and I'm just praying for more sunnier days in which I can wear these!

Face & Body Cleansing with Clarisonic Smart Profile

CLARISONIC SMART PROFILE CLARISONIC SMART PROFILE CLARISONIC SMART PROFILE CLARISONIC SMART PROFILE
When it comes to skincare, I am always on the look out for something that's going to better my skin. I am more inclined to spend a considerable amount of money on skincare products as I'm constantly on a quest for 'perfect skin'. 
I have heard mixed reviews on the Clarisonic but have always been itching to try it myself as I am a clean freak and feel that even with manual cleansing, my skin doesn't feel clean enough.
I have been trialing the new Clarisonic Smart Profile for Face and Body* for the last couple of weeks. I have to say I am a converted fan! The sonic cleanser has 4 speeds and comes with two brush heads (one for face and one for body). I have used this on my face twice a week and I'm amazed at how smooth and brighter my skin looks. Even after cleansing the night before, I have been shocked to use this in the morning and to still see make-up on the brush head. It just shows you how you can think your face is clean but it's not! I just smooth my Clinique Take the Day Off cleansing balm all over my face and then use the Clarisonic. It is programmed for balanced cleansing so you know which area of your face to hold the brush head on to get the best results.
I'm so excited to also get a deep body exfoliation using the body brush head. The Clarisonic also comes with a refining skin polish to use alongside the sonic cleanser to really buff, exfoliate any dead skin cells away. 
The Clarisonic is £199, so it's definitely an investment, but one I think is worth it and you're going to get beautifully soft and clean skin and this product won't run out! You can purchase your Clarisonic from Debenhams here!

Orla Kiely SS16 LFW Show

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that it is London Fashion Week! I was lucky enough to go to the Orla Kiely SS16 LFW presentation yesterday and go backstage. I work for Leighton Denny nails and they were the official nail sponsor for the show. The nails this year were a block moon manicure using pastel toned colour, 'I Like Lilac' as this suited the colours and prints of the new collection the best.
This was my first ever LFW show so I was super excited and also didn't quite know what to expect. It was a lot more chilled then I thought it was going to be, however, manic at times backstage too. As this was a presentation rather than a catwalk show, it was a lot more relaxed and interactive. I loved the creativity of the show with it having a sweet, pastel hued mini-golf set. 
The collection itself was beautiful and very my style. The prints, clashing colours, girly and feminine flattering pieces were so wearable and sixties inspired. I am obsessed with the lilac coat and matching button down lilac skirt. I'm already dreaming of next summer!

Keeping It Minimal

KEEPING IT MINIMAL KEEPING IT MINIMAL KEEPING IT MINIMAL KEEPING IT MINIMAL KEEPING IT MINIMAL KEEPING IT MINIMAL KEEPING IT MINIMAL KEEPING IT MINIMALJacket: Forever 21 | Top: Asos | Trousers: H&M | Sandals: Public Desire | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Bag: Urban Outfitters

If it's one thing I hate is 'in-between' weather. I don't know whether to still get as much use out of my summer wardrobe or to be wrapped up in layers for Autumn. Plus, it doesn't help that the weather is just as undecided as I am! 
This outfit is just as in-between. I love this low-cut White top from ASOS purely for it's versatility and can make anything your wearing look more elegant. Rather than pair this top with jeans like I'd usually opt for, I wore these Black and White printed H&M trousers. I really want to invest in trousers this A/W as I always find myself gravitating towards jeans when you can look a lot more put together and chic in a pair of fitted trousers. 
Adding a summery element, I stuck with my favourite Public Desire sandals. I'm not ready to say goodbye to sandals yet although my cold feet say otherwise!
