An Urban Hike

Autumnal weather is my absolute favourite, the crisp air and warm, bright sunshine just calls out for layers, jumpers and boots. These are my favourite pieces of clothing and ankle boots are my go to shoe for autumn and winter, I'm so glad I can finally invest in a few new pairs to see me through the season!

To make the most of the crisp autumn weather Laura, Rebecca and I tried out part of Regatta's Urban Hike last weekend after indulging in a huge Sunday roast at Hawksmoor, which was all new levels of amazing but definitely made us want to burn a few calories afterwards.

Four Places to Visit in Anglesey

I'll admit, I had hesitations about spending my birthday weekend in Anglesey, it's where I grew up and although I have a horde of happy memories, I wasn't sure how much it would keep us entertained for a whole weekend.

When we were little, we spent hours and hours outside exploring the outdoors, the beach and the forests of Anglesey, but since then my tastes have changed to also include eating out and drinking wine (not your usual hobbies of a 10 year old!). I wasn't expecting to have a huge choice of restaurants and local shops as I'm used to an Angelsey devoid of anything but fish and chips, but after a quick peek in the Good Food Guide and asking my cousins who still live there, we suddenly had a huge list to choose from!

We had a lovely four days in Anglesey so I've picked out four of my favourite places we visited that I hadn't been to before that I would thoroughly recommend.

On Film: The First Monday in May

For some unknown reason, I rarely talk about films on here even though I spend more time watching, researching and talking about films than I do fashion or beauty. It feels like more of an indulgence to watch a film, and because I work in fashion and beauty ecommerce, when I get home I love to escape into another world through films. Joe works in film and merchandise so he fuels our addiction with preview copies and a veritable library of SteelBooks, blu-rays and DVDs in our man cave dining room.

But a couple of weekends ago, instead of the usual barrage of action, superheroes and thrillers that usually fill our cinema trips, we went to HOME to see The First Monday in May.

The Lookfantastic October Beauty Box Review #LFPAMPER

A pamper evening (or day if I can get away with it...) is one of my favourite hobbies, stealing away some time just for me feels ever so indulgent but sometimes entirely necessary.

This month's Lookfantastic Beauty Box celebrates pampering with a box dedicated to the art, full of goodies to help you relax and make you feel your best. Plus, it comes with a copy of Elle for you to read in the bath, perfect! Since we bit the bullet and put an offer in on a house, I've been going a little bit mad with interiors, my most recent purchase is this yellow HAY bath mat from Amara which has brightened up my pamper sessions!

An Ode to Pyjamas

One of my favourite things about this time of year is the inevitable investment in around 117 new pyjama sets. I've got to the age where instead of going out every Friday and Saturday night, I'll be more likely to be found at home in PJs, under a duvet on the sofa watching a film. I'm wild like that.

Last year I was entirely obsessed with Derek Rose button down pyjamas (they're the pyjamas worn in Harry Potter and House of Cards so I had to have them obviously), but this year I'm favouring easy to wear, super soft loungewear. I've already picked up two sets to get me through the start of the season!
