Well, well, well, here we are again. Another month has simply flown by. How the heck is it October?! With an Autumnal spin on the table, I thought I would carry that theme through to today’s blog post. A favourites post paired with a fall floral hue!
Trips to London aren’t complete without a stop off at, in my opinion, the most dreamy floral stand in the land; Liberty London. I’m in London regularly, often sprinting in for work related meetings, caffeine catch-ups and in my own time, all important shopping sprees. Last week was no different and I made a vow to pass by Liberty to pick up a bunch of eucalyptus (god, I’m so basic). There it was, calling me from down the street, a vision of pretty petals, all lined up ready to be adored. At this point I felt like I had dressed for the visit, my outfit matched perfectly (totally not planned FYR). From my green and white frilled sleeve right down to my burgundy manicure, I was tip to toe in an Autumnal colour palette. I couldn’t pass by without that all important snap to capture the moment which I uploaded onto the grid here. The nail shade is Pretty In Plaid* by Leighton Denny Expert Nails and I have to say, I’m in love. Not one for being a big fan of glitter nail varnishes, this one is subtle enough to handle. It’s the perfect combination of a rich red, spiced with a gorgeous gold glitter. It’s from their AW17 Collection which as a whole ticks all the boxes for me, there’s a selection of natural nudes, pretty pinks, raspberry reds and even a bold blue. Have a peek for yourself here.
On one of these regular trips into town, embracing London life, I popped into stationary sanctuary Kikki K. I was in desperate need of an admin update, for reasons I’ve yet to reveal but stay tuned for a life update asap. A new notebook was on the cards and as I was perusing each one in detail (as you do) I spotted the most adorable little book. A rather appropriate 3AM Journal. I mentioned recently that I’ve been up in the early hours, kept awake by my brain so of course, this is just so fitting as on the front cover it reads; great ideas can strike at any time, keep by your bedside to capture inspiration after dark.
My final favourite has already appeared on the blog, not wanting to give it too much of an ego boost, I can’t help but put it into the spotlight again. Although a gifted product, I haven’t taken this off my wrist (apart from trips to the shower) since it arrived on my doorstep. This gorgeous watch from ADEXE has had me at hello from the first moment I laid my eyes on it. Funny story: I left this at my friends house the other day after a prosecco fuelled evening and she loved it so much she pinched it for that all important blogger flatlay photo. I have never been a ‘watch’ kind of girl. To be honest, I never really saw the relevance, I mean it’s 2017 I’ve got an iPhone duh! A beautiful timepiece is so much more than that, just telling the time, it completely elevates an outfit. If you want to know more, check out my previous post here.
