Thin Grey Knit


Autumn is upon us and the shops are filled with gorgeous a/w collections. I purchased this really casual thin knit top from New Look as I was looking for something to wear over a white shirt. I love how light this piece is, perfect for layering on cold days or on it's own when the days are a little hotter. I usually pair this with a statement necklace and some high wasted jeans/skirt. I can't wait to find some more cosy knits!

River Island London

Perfume is the one thing I find extremely hard to spend money on. I feel like I use it so often that I can't financially spend £30-60 on a new bottle every time I run out. When I came across the River Island range of fragrances, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved them. The collections of fragrances are available in a range of sizes including a 10ml roller (£4), 30ml bottle (£10) and a 75ml bottle (£12). I purchased the 10ml roller first to make sure I was sure of the scent before committing to a 30ml bottle. 


I have been wearing this scent non stop it has such a gorgeous sweet smell. I think for the price this is a must for those who want to re-purchase. I really love the roller as you can pop it in your bag/clutch on a night out when you don't want to take a full on handbag. The roller is also great for places on the body such as our neck and wrists without spraying too much. I use the bottle before the roller to make sure the scent is strong enough before topping up throughout the day with the roller. I can't wait to purchase some more scents from the River Island range, I think I'm an addict to London.

Eyeko Navy Skinny Liquid Liner

I love Alexa Chung, and the fact that she works with eyeko makes me love eyeko even more. Alexa is known for her iconic winged eyeliner and that makes me confident that eyeko are a good brand. Retailing at £10 - £12, I would say this in in the middle of the scale in terms of low and high end priced products. This is the first eyeko product I have used and I have to say, I quite like it!

In terms of packaging I love the simple silver with a variety of navy fonts. The pen is a nice size and fits in your hand perfectly, allowing you to move it accordingly. The nib style sponge tip is flexible which I really like. I hate eyeliners where the tip is rock hard, it's harder to create a wing. The pigmentation is okay, I would prefer a more pigmented colour. However, with that said it is easy to build a deeper colour by re-applying. All in all, I do like this product and would love to try the black shade. I find this eyeliner is great if you find it harder to create more elegant and dainty eyeliner looks!

Dolce & Gabbana SS15 Favourites

I absolutely loved the Dolce & Gabbana spring/summer 15 collection it is completely gorgeous. I love the Spanish influence and how they have incorporated jewels, florals, reds, blacks and so much more. The best part of the show had to be Kendall Jenner leading the pack looking absolutely stunning with the rest of the models behind her.
