Warm Winter Thoughts… “Wish You Were Here”

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that I’m a bit of a daydreamer and once I have my sights set on something, I’m a little obsessed. Lately, I’ve been a tad fixated on vacations! My … Continue reading

MUA Professional: Dusk Til Dawn Palette

So, last week I received MUA Professional’s Dusk Til Dawn palette. I was so excited because I had no idea when it was going to come since tracking packages isn’t offered by most UK companies shipping to the US; if … Continue reading

Do you ever wonder what’s up with the weather? Why it’s 80 degrees in October? Well, that’s what I’m wondering right about now because it’s October 2nd and where I live it’s going to be the perfect beach day!

So, how do you keep it consistent when it comes to your style and clothing choices? How to look like your dressing for autumn when it feels like June?

This outfit, mostly from Pull & Bear (I am LOVING their stuff right now!) shows how to dress comfortably in an “indian summer” and yet maintain the spirit of fall. Weather you are walking along the ocean or a street of crunching leaves, this ensemble could work for you. If it is a little chillier where you live, throw on a jacket and keep this look just as ‘cool’. 🙂

Thirsty Thursday: Wishlist

This morning I woke up with a horrible migraine around 3 AM, which has since taken over my entire body. So, as I sit here in almost complete darkness, with my ceiling fan on high (wishing there was an ULTRA high setting), in my hubby’s x-large tee, with an Anthro Mug full of Gevalia and not a stitch of makeup on… I thought today would be a good day for a wishlist post [and some badly needed grammar corrections on previous posts!].


1) Miss Selfridge Faux Leather Pleated Midi Skirt– The only reason this skirt is on my wishlist instead of in my closet is because I have never ordered anything from the Miss Selfridge USA site and don’t know if the sizes are still listed in UK sizing or in American. (Any insight on this subject would be helpful!)

Pleather is making a BIG comeback this year and while flipping through the pages of the most recent issue of ELLE magazine I saw that school-girl style, pleated skirts (long & short) are going down the runways this season. It’s kind of an irresistible trend and a super versatile item to have in your wardrobe, which is why it’s #1 on my list. I’m not usually one to just go along with the crowd, especially when it comes to style. I enjoy finding pieces that I like, whether the media says they look good or not. However, this specific skirt is definitely customizable to almost anyone’s fashion sense and could translate well from day to night. And at $46 (34 Euro), it’s a pretty reasonable element to include in a post like this one.

2) Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in (591) “Alchimie“- Retailing for $27 online & in-store this is definitely a shade of polish to splurge on. Mossy greens are a great color for fall and are showing up all over runways in Paris. It’s a great alternative to the burgundy and red shades that usually greet us in the autumn season and, with a bit of shimmer, it’s a must-have color for sure! However, if you are more into the darker, ruddy colors at this time of the year try out this varnish in another great hue- Rouge Noir. Both of the tints I’ve mentioned here are limited edition (so, I hope I get mine soon enough!). View all of the Chanel nail colors, including the limited editions, HERE.

3) Illamasqua Lipstick in “Over”– I’m a big fan of Illamasqua lipstick, although some think it’s drying. I have this one in the color Plunge, a matt, pastel pink that really stands out on the lips. The company recently featured “Over” on their Facebook page and it was love at first sight for me. It, being a coral pink shade, can be appropriate for number of seasons. Possibly not winter but, from the swatches online, it looks like it’s definitely wearable for the majority of the year. It’s over $20 but, for this adaptable of a tone, I think it’s worth it.

Now, there is one more thing I MUST make mention of…

the Kate Spade 2 Park Avenue Beau Bag.

I saw this bag also while going page by page through the September issue of ELLE. At first, I just kept turning pages and didn’t really think much of it. But, over the past few days this bag has been haunting me. I’ve been fantasizing about it, I admit.


I can’t officially add it to my list of must haves because it is selling, in numerous colors, for approximately $500! There is also one that includes a leopard motif on the Kate Spade website for $1000. Needless to say, any price between those two is considerably out of my price range. But, I thought I’d show you guys my favorites anyway; so that we can all drool together. 😉
