I’m back with a nail art post for today, and this week I decided to go for a mod french tip, a french tip with a twist. You’ve probably seen this before but I think it’s so much better and more eye-catching than an ordinary french tip, because let’s face it, nail art is there to be noticed.
I’m also happy to let you know that I’m writing this blog post off my new laptop, which just arrived today. I’ve been saving for quite a while now, and (if it doesn’t sound too cheesy) you are now looking at the proud owner of a MacBook.
The make up that I’ve been loving this past month or so is eyeshadow, especially the trios. For me they’re the easiest way to create a smoky eye, but I can also use them for everyday application if I just want something to brighten my eyes. My favourite is the Bourjois golden/brown set, but I’m also just getting into MUA’s soft pink trio. If you’re on a budget then I recommend MUA, but if you’re willing to spend a little bit more, Bourjois is definitely my fave brand at the moment.
I feel like everyone needs a simple black cardigan in their wardrobe for those days when you put an outfit together but can’t quite find the right jacket to put over the top. For me, those days are gone thanks to a bit of thrift shopping.
I know this might not look much like a window display, but you know the troubles I’ve been having with photographing my displays because of lighting issues/iphone camera etc. I found that doing close up shots of colours and patterns that I’ve used in my window displays is the best way to show them to you, so here you go. Enjoy some leopard and khaki inspiration.

I mentioned it on yesterday’s post, but my definite staple pieces for this autumn have been my black skinnies, black worker boots and my black rucksack. They’re re-occuring in almost all outfits I pick out in the mornings, and I do feel a bit guilty about that. Although I might not want to admit that my favourite colour in clothing is black, I think it’s pretty obvious from my blog posts. I’m not bored of these pieces yet, but by the time winter really kicks in, I’m sure I’ll be moving on to the next fashions. For now these are my staples. What are you constantly wearing?
I always thought of this skirt as a summer skirt, only to be worn with a brightly coloured top and sandals in the holidays, but I really wanted to find something different to shoot that I haven’t worn yet this autumn. Admittedly I had to dig this out of my summer box of clothes which lives on top of my wardrobe the rest of the year round, but paired with an autumnally mustard tshirt, it was worth the trouble. I had wanted to wear this outfit with bare legs and boots, but I just knew that I wouldn’t be able to brave the English October temperatures. Looks like it’s goodbye to bare legs now until next Summer.

Overloading on photos today because my sister can get a bit snap-happy when she shoots for the blog. Hopefully this is a good thing for you, because I always find my photos speak louder than my actual words. I’m not being lazy, it’s just that my life isn’t usually interesting enough to write about!
I don’t think this location could be any further from Brooklyn, but hey. Who needs to be in the big city when you can be on a lonely beach in the mist? I know that’s where I’d prefer to be, but it doesn’t stop me loving this H&M sweatshirt, which, I’d just like to point out, comes in many different colours/patterns and is only £5.99. Now that’s what I call a bargain.
