Not everything I love is beauty related in this life (although it is a large proportion!), so I thought I would share some of my other favourite things that have make me happy this week!
Seeing the first signs of Fall in Central Park. It was on my wishlist from last weeks post, and while my sister was visiting this week, we made a trip. There are still a few weeks to go I think before the trees show their full spectrum of beautiful colours but it will be nice to watch the change over the coming weeks.
Visiting our new favourite restaurant in NYC, La Bouqueria. This is a Spanish restaurant in the Flatiron district (19th Av, btw 5/6th) that looks like it has been transported from Barcelona. I’m no connosiuer but my husband and I visit Spain at least twice a year and it is our favourite food to eat, so we have high standards and this surpasses our expectations. They do the most amazing tapas, fabulous wine and delicious churros for dessert. If you are in NYC, you need to pay this place a visit!
Most of you will probably know her already, but Gemma from Miss Makeup Magpie is just the nicest person you should ever wish to know. She has been so supportive throughout my move to New York and is just one of the friendliest, most helpful, warmest people that I have ever (not) met! She has an amazing blog packed with product reviews and beautiful photography. I also advertise with her and love being on her sidebar every month. She offers affordable packages for different budgets, so if you are thinking of advertising your blog, head to Gemma’s website and check out her awesome blog!
I have become a bit obsessed with Pinterest over recent months, it is so addictive. From beauty products to home decor, and style inspiration to cute animals, I have been pinning everything and have built up quite a collection of boards now! If you would like to check out what sort of things I have been pinning, you can follow me here and if you have got the Pinterest bug to, leave me your handle in the comments below so that I can see what you have been pinning too!
“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself” Coco Chanel
Charlotte Tilbury. When I met her at her NYC launch on Tuesday, I was in total awe of her. She was just the nicest person you could wish to meet and to be able to build her own brand and get to where she has today takes a lot of hard work and determination, and that for me is truly inspirational.
Top Of The Wishlist
I am head over heels in love with this bag from Rebecca Minkoff. I think it looks quite similar in style to the Chanel Boy Bag, but is a lot more purse friendly, and the deep burgundy colour is just perfect for this time of year. I keep getting emails with discount codes trying to tempt me, but I think I may have to ask Santa nicely!
