Early Fall Outfit | What I Wore

Welcome back to my blog! Today's What I wore is an early fall outfit that I wore a few days ago. It has been getting quite chilly around here, but fall is my favourite season, so I am enjoying it so much. I am more than happy to bring out the cosy knits, scarves and ankle boots. For today's outfit I went with a pair of navy skinny jeans from New Yorker and a white jumper. I accessorized it with one of my favourite scarves, a beige coloured one that I've had for a few years now, I can't even remember where I got it from. I also wore a pair of black ankle boots from Deichmann and, finally, my bag is the usual - my black tote bag from George at ASDA*. 

That's about it for my outfit for today. Thank you for reading my blog!

Fall Fashion Wishlist

Welcome back to my blog! Today's post is going to be a short one, because I just wanted to share with you a few clothing items and accessories that are currently on my fall wishlist. I didn't get to take any outfit pictures this past week, mainly because I've been kinda sick, so my outfits haven't really been that exciting either. So I hope you don't mind that. I still wanted to put up a blogpost for this What I Wore Wednesday, because I wanted to see your linked outfits. Plus, I haven't shared a wishlist with you in such a long time. 
For the picture above, all of the items that I chose are from H&M, and the ones below are form Zara (just because I love these two stores). So here's what's on my wishlist:

From H&M:
1. Mustard infinity scarf 
2. Beige ankle boots
3. Cozy grey sweater
4. Cream handbag
5. Autumn plaid scarf
6. Leather gloves

From Zara:
1. Soft checked scarf
2. Grey coat
3. Knitted scarf

I hope you enjoyed my little wishlist. Be sure to leave your outfits below, as usual!

H&M Beauty Products | Haul

H&M has recently come out with a new range of beauty products, and since I have never tried anything form their beauty line before, I decided to place an order with some things that I really needed/wanted. I am so excited to play with these new products and I'll be sure to do some reviews on them once I try them for a while, to let you know whether I like them or not. 

I firstly picked up the clear makeup bag. I have been wanting to have a makeup bag like this for a while now, but couldn't find one that I really liked. So when I saw this one on their website, I immediately knew I had to have it. I love that it's clear and you can see all of your beauty products inside, which makes it really easy to grab whatever you're looking for in there. 
Next thing I got was the eyebrow kit, because I really wanted to try a new eyebrow product and see how it works. I got it in the shade Chocolate, which I think will be a good match for me. Their range of blushers looks amazing and the packaging is to die for. Actually all of their packaging is really lovely and sleek, I feel like these look so pretty in your makeup collection. So, obviously, I couldn't not pick a blush, and the one I got is in the shade Sunrise Pink.
I also picked a liquid eyeliner pen from their online store, which I hope will last me for a while and not dry out quickly (like some liquid eyeliner pens do). I swatched this on my hand and it looks really pigmented, so that's a good sign. I'll let you know how it ends up working for me. Finally for eye products, I got a pair of eyelashes from their range. I picked the Silhouette kind, which are lovely flared ones, a bit thicker in the outer part of the lashes. I don't wear eyelashes very often, but I want to get used to applying them, as I would like to wear them on my wedding day.
For lip products, I picked a pencil lipliner, and I got it in the shade Au Naturel, which is supposed to be a very neutral colour, kind of like the colour of your lips. I think this would be nice under some nude lipsticks that I own. Lastly, I got a lip scrub and it smells incredible, kind of like vanilla. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm really excited to do so, as I have very dry lips most of the time, so I constantly need to take care of them if I want them to look nice.

That's about it for my little H&M beauty haul. Let me know if any of you have tried their range of beauty products and what you thought of them. Thank you for reading my blog!

Leather Jacket for Fall | What I Wore

Shirt: New Yorker  |  Necklace: H&M  |  Jacket: local store  |  Jeans: New Yorker  |  Shoes & Bag: George at ASDA*

Today's outfit is on the casual side, one that I wore this past weekend running some errands and doind a bit of shopping. It was actually quite chilly outside, but now it's back to warm weather. It has been so indecisive lately with the weather - one day it's so cold you need a jacket, the other it's just like summer is back. But I'm sure this won't last long and fall will actually be here in no-time. I wore a simple white shirt that I got from New Yorker a while back and threw on top of it my leather jacket to keep me warm. Then I went with a pair of light-wash jeans and my leopard print flat shoes that I love so much. I accessorized it quite simply, with just a golden bar type of necklace. That's about it for today's outfit! 

I hope you enjoyed this post! Thank you for reading!

MAC Lipsticks Haul

I feel like beauty posts have been missing for quite some time from my blog and I really want to bring them back and write about makeup more often. To be honest, I haven't really bought a lot of makeup lately, which is one of the reasons why I haven't really felt inspired to write about it. I think I've just always been one of those people who's more into fashion than beauty. That being said, I've been tempted for quite some time to take a trip to my local MAC store and purchase a little something for myself, and I finally decided to do it - actually, my fiance took me there and got me these lipsticks as an early birthday present (my birthday's not til October though). I walked out of the store with a big smile on my face, since I don't really splurge on beauty products very often - and there's something about MAC lipsticks that's really exciting, maybe it's the fact that they feel so luxurious (at least to me) or the fact that they're such a nice formula or the lovely typical MAC lipstick-scent that they have.

As for the colours I got, I decided to pick two shades that I've been really wanting to add to my collection for quite some time and I'm really excited to wear them. I went for a classic nude shade, which I think will be perfect for daily wear and simple, light makeup looks - Creme Cup. This is a nude, pink, blue-toned lipstick and I can see myself wearing it a lot on a daily basis. The second shade I picked up is Faux, which is more of a mauve - but still nude - lipstick. I love that it's a wearable colour, even though it's a bit darker than the usual nude shades that lipsticks come in. I think it's the perfect autumn shade for me, and it will go perfectly with burgundy scarves and monochrome looks. Can you tell I'm excited for fall?! Haha! :) 

I am really happy with the colours I picked and I will definitely be doing some makeup looks featuring these, so if you'd like to see how they look on, then stay tuned for my future blogposts.

Favourite Fall Clothing Items

Today I really felt like writing up a blogpost about something fall inspired and I decided to share my favourite fall clothing items or accessories that I have from last year and that I bet I will wear a lot this year as well. I am actually having a slightly more relaxed Wednesday today and after I'm finished writing this blogpost, I'll be doing some serious declutter through my closet. As some of you may already know, we've been looking lately to buy our own place and I'm happy to announce that we finaly found the one. It might still take a few months for us to actually move there, because we have to finish with all the paperwork involved and get furniture and all the essentials for our apartment, but we're really excited and I can't wait to share lots of decor and home inspiration blogposts soon. So as I'm slowly preparing for that (because I don't want to leave everything until the last moment), I decided to really clean out my closet and only keep the things that I actually wear, so it will be easier for the moving process. The items above are some that are definitely coming with me, because I just love wearing them so much. I am really excited that fall is finally here, I love waking up in the morning and opening my window to crisp air, it's so refreshing after a few months of unbearable heat. In case you're wondering where I got the items above, which I think are really essential to my fall wardrobe, here's the list: 
1. Leather jacket - local store; 2. Burgundy scarf - New Look; 3. Brown leather bag - gift; 4. Checked scarf - local store; 5. Watch - New Look; 6. Golden cuff bracelet - H&M.

I hope you enjoyed my first fall inspired blogpost of this year!

All-Navy Outfit | What I Wore

I took the photos for today's blogpost this past weekend, when I also filmed a vlog that you can check out here. We just went on a little walk and took some footage of a nearby park. It was a really lovely way to spend a weekend afternoon. I basically wore a simple all-navy outfit, and just kept everything simple and comfortable. The pants I got from Sheinside last year, and the top - I can't remember exactly where I got it, but it's just a basic navy one. I paired the outfit with the embellished flat sandals and a simple black bag from George at ASDA. For accessories I picked one of my favourite bracelets ever, this golden cuff one from H&M. I love it and it goes well with lots of outfits to give them something a little bit more, make them a bit more interesting.
