The Lust List | Winter Wishing

Hello November, oh how I've been waiting for you! With the promise of soft chunky knits, berry hued lipsticks and all the wrapped up layers of winter style, what better way to welcome the new month than with a winter wishing lust list? Jam-packed with all the stylish finds that have caught my fashionable attention - now if they could all kindly make their way into my wardrobe that would be bloody brill.

Taking centre stage in my wardrobe wishin' this month is good old Topshop, of whom have finally returned to my good books. Despite winning over my affections with a birthday discount (holla!), of which I've been creepin' on the website daily, I'm seriously impressed with their knitted offerings including that cape and faux fur navy coat. Which are admittedly currently en route to my wardrobe. Sorry not sorry. 

As we also edge that little bit closer to the festive season - insert heart eyed emoji - I can't quite resist the tempting allure of sparkles, sequins or lace. Or in this case, feathers and leather. Say hello to the Warehouse leather skirt. Paired with a laid back dark grey wool blend t-shirt (so fancy) and a slick of dark lippie, this is basically my go-to outfit for all the occasions in my December diary.

And, because it would be rude not to. Please may we all take a moment to appreciate that Zara coat. Thank you, yes and please. 

Tell me which is your must-have piece from the above?

Because sharing is caring, and I'm all for enabling:

Sunday Style: In Check

Check Shirt - J.Crew ∙ Jeans - Gap  Silver shoes - J.Crew 

Oh hey there stranger, it's been a long time since I've seen you around these parts! 

After gallivanting off on my big USA adventure, the shock of returning to the daily grind resulted in being a stroppy cow (jet-lag is my nemesis), endless cups of tea and depressingly flicking through my holiday snaps grieving for New York sunshine and American breakfast potatoes (my one true love). Finally back on top form and ready to unleash the new J.Crew wardrobe I accidentally managed to shove in my suitcase home, let's be having you October, you autumnal dream.

So tell me, what did I miss?

Beauty Talk: Pedicures at Cheeky Parlour

It's official - the holiday countdown has begun. And what better way to wind down and ignore the perils of packing than an indulgence pre-holiday pamper? Gathering my best gal pal Lily, we made a beeline for the Cheeky Parlour in Holborn to give their Toe Shine Pedi a whirl. 

Having been on my radar for quite some time - and yet never having an excuse to pop on by - Cheeky is the sister salon of the infamous Cowshed. Serving up a beauty menu of express beauty treatments (with a fully stocked bar) at seriously affordable prices, this one-stop-beauty-shop is certainly one to add to your little black book.

Priced at a snappy £26, it included the full works - file and shape, cuticle work, dead skin blitzing, exfoliation, moisturising and a lick of paint of your choosing. Settled in their sleek wooden thrones with my juicy coral varnish at the ready, my beautician quite simply worked her magic and left me with freshly painted glossy toes and feeling light as a feather.

Quite the indulgent treat, this beauty fix is an incredible offer for the super affordable rate. I honestly couldn't rate the nail girls more highly, their attention to detail from the moment they preened my god awful feet to the snazzy foot dryers next to a stack of the latest glossies - not a single trick has been missed, in fact I predict a pedi addiction on the horizon. 

With a salon in both Shoreditch and Holborn, prices start from £14 for a file and paint - whaddya waiting for?
