Streets made of desire

So for the past few days I have been frolicking amongst the streets of Amsterdam, because you all know how much I adore a European city. Whilst I spent two days at sea and only a few short hours in the city I took the time to admire architecture, shop the latest trends and embrace everything about my favourite continent. Having lived in Germany for the majority of my life I have found myself feeling a little distant from the place I would often call home. This part of the world remains one of my very favourite, i'm just lucky enough to be able to visit it whenever I get the opportunity.

Whats in my bag? AW15 Edition

It's been a whole season since i've updated my What's in my bag? but with the leaves falling, the city getting colder and the AW15 trends in full flow it was only time. This season I have updated my go to handbag to a black River Island tote (SHOP) which is perfect for everyday use and has all the space I could dream of. It is always too tempting to go for a vibrant coloured bag however not always that practical. Both the colour and structure paired with a gold polish lining are chic and sophisticated.

You may have noticed once again that my handbag is filled with Lulu Guinness, after all she is my favourite accessories designer. Since my last, 'What's in my bag?', I have added my lilac lip clasp purse (SHOP/similar) which I received as a graduation present and also a Lulu shopper for my birthday (SHOP). This shopper is one of a kind and its foldable design allows you to pack it into a compact pouch in the form of Lulu's trademark lips . Of course I wouldn't be able to part my Lulu Guinness make up pouch (SHOP/similar)- could we expect this wonderful lady to create anything besides handbag perfection? 

For AW15 I have condensed my carry around cosmetic selection. Along with my Chanel compact mirror I always carry two lipsticks- one for everyday and one just incase things get a little sassy. Currently I am using Chanel Rouge Coco in Edith (SHOP) and MAC limited edition Private Party. The two couldn't be more different, yet perfect for day and night. I have also changed my Victoria's Secret scent to Pink Fresh and Clean and have received many compliments on its divine smell- I literally go through bottles of these Pink minis! Another of my essential make up items to is my current nail polish as chipped nail polish is less than desirable so its is necessary to have a quick fix. This week i'm wearing BarryM Gelly in plum (SHOP).

Of course what would my handbag be without a few essentials? My Kate Spade planner, a copy of the latest Vogue (or Elle) and a pair of sunglasses make my bag complete. 
What's in your bag for AW15 darlings?

A British Autumn

A British Autumn is nothing but desirable.
For a country that is famous for its rainy weather and combination of countryside and cities, this is the season where the island flourishes. 
Think Burberry trenches, iconic landscapes and of course the crisp cold air.  
The reasons we adore Autumn vary. From a divine deep colour palette, to dreary days in the city- there is something about Autumn that keeps us going. Could it be the new beginnings of September? The countdown to Christmas? Or a killer wardrobe? 
I spent my Sunday afternoon in the city with one of my best friends sipping on cocktails and catching up on life.  
With fashion week in full swing it is time that we completely embrace AW15 trend. The transition from S/S to A/W can be a little tedious so I opted for fail proof monochrome. We need to save our favourite seasonal colours for when the leaves start falling and the hard work gets going.

Here i'm wearing my favourite River Island leather jacket and new season over the knee boots. I have paired this with my Topshop ribbed jumper and white cord skirt.   

I'm all about Autumn and a British Autumn is what makes us adore September across the waters.
The AW15 runway was one of our favourites and these are trends to live by. It's time to flaunt our flawless styling and wardrobe perfection.

I spent last Friday night partying in the city. As we have just entered AW15 in was necessary that I embrace the hottest seasonal trends meaning sleek black sophistication was a go to. I adore this plunge playsuit with a scalloped cut from RARE London. Whilst it us daring and a little risqué it was certainly worth it and provides you with the perfect opportunity to flaunt your pins even when though the season is changing. I paired it with my favourite black platform Carvelas.

Queen Elizabeth II- Making history

9th September 2015
Today marks the day that Queen Elizabeth II, monarch of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth realms, becomes our longest serving Queen. Bypassing Queen Victoria her 63 year reign has been filled with momentous events, both joyful and devastating, that have shaped our country today.
As head of our armed forces and head of the Church of England her iconic figure makes her one the most important, if not the most important, monarchs to ever rule our country. Her dedication, loyalty and willingness to serve her people is admirable, appreciated and a statement. We thank you for providing us with an identity and planting the United Kingdom and Commonwealth realms on the globe and in the prominence of todays society.
