Delectable | September favourites

September is undoubtedly my favourite month. It marks the start of a new season, fashion week and the launch of a whole array of new products ready for the festive season. This month I have invested a lot of time and experimentation with some fresh launches. AW17 is in full swing and Autumn just so happens to be my favourite season, I mean who else agrees this seasons colour palette is too die for?
Nails Inc. nail kale, Regent Mews SHOP
Nail Kale is my new Nails Inc favourite. As a loyal customer I am rarely wearing a manicure other than Nails Inc. Regent Mews is not only a rich, deep purple which is ultimately seasonal, and a known weakness of mine, but it leaves you with the manicure of yours dreams. Made with extracts of kale this polish strengthens your nails and from personal experience is a league ahead when it comes to being chip proof.
Full bodied foundation brush 110, FENTY Beauty SHOP
I happened to be in Harvey Nichols the day of the Fenty beauty launch and I just couldn't drag myself away. I have actively been seeking a new foundation brush all year and I just could not find the one, until I laid my eyes on this. Not only is the colour of this brush super cute and chic but it's softness is out of this world. This is one celebrity beauty range I would highly recommend testing. 
Liberation, Balmain X L'Oreal SHOP
I had been signed up to Balmain X L'Oreal list for a while and yes on September 1st I was sat there awaiting it's introduction. Balmain is one of my favourite brands, with Olivier Rousteing being one of my idols- his fierce attitude brings it all. The hard part when purchasing this lipstick was choosing a colour ... bold, bright, subtle or daring? Or all the above? Liberation is a divine purple that is perfect for your AW17 wardrobe. Beware this is one very dark lipstick however it is filled with rich tones that compliment any glam look.
Tootsie Tamer, Nails Inc SHOP
This was gifted to me as a birthday present and I only wish I had this all Summer. Essentially a foot buff this tootsie tamer works miracles ... find me wearing sling backs all year long.
Sweet Peach palette, Too Faced SHOP
What I adore about this palette is it's transitional array of colours. Whilst peaches and bronzes are perfect for the Summer months it also includes some of my very favourite Autumnal tones. Talk Derby to me, Delectable and Peach pit are what dreams are made of this fall.
Hollergraphic, Nails Inc. SHOP
I couldn't resist. You all know how much I adored my Unicorn mani, well it just got all the more outrageous. These nails inc duos are literally magic in a bottle. All you need is a dark room and a camera flash to see why. Hello showstopper. 
Rose Gold Apple Watch S2 SHOPS3
I was incredibly lucky to receive an Apple Watch for my birthday. As someone who is always on the go, and someone who must keep up to date with the latest news at all costs, this watch literally delivers everything I need in a heartbeat. I have never been a watch wearer but this rose gold design is stunning whatever your ensemble. If you are a tech lover like me I couldn't recommend it enough.

MFW has just passed and Jeremy Scott's SS18 ready to wear runway was something I will forever remember. His play with shapes and colours, paired with his fun and feisty attitude, never fail to deliver excellence. He encourages us to experiment, break boundaries and embrace our powerful persona's. View the collection HERE
Guess playsuit, SHOP GUESS
I picked up this gorgeous Guess playsuit ready for my birthday. It's phenomenal colour caught my eye in an instance and you all know how much I adore the 'almost lingerie' trend. This playsuit has not yet made it onto the website but I can only hope it's reappearance exists in multiple shades. It is laid back, effortless and of course a little sassy.
Sweet nothings journal, Kate Spade SHOP Kate Spade
Everyone knows I adore Kate Spade and her attention to detail. Everything feels so simplistic and effortless but her way with words add a little attitude to all her products. 
They also happen to be my desk favourites.

The festive gift guides are just around the corner, and we are on countdown.

Wander in the Dominican Republic | beauty and cause

The past few weeks has seen so much devastation brought upon our world. The natural disasters that have entailed hurricanes Harvey and Irma, Jose and Maria alongside the tragedy of earthquake in Mexico has left families without loved ones and without a home. I visited the Dominican Republic, a Caribbean island, a little over a month ago and was faced with such timeless beauty and landscape never sparing a thought that these islands, and many others would soon face tragedy. 
For these people to suffer such heartbreak is unimaginable. I could have continued my blog posts on my trip to the Dominican but this would not have been right. Instead I would like to share with you some of my personal, unedited photos of the Puerto Plata, a place I will remain eternally grateful to have visited.
Please say a prayer,
please spare a thought for so many in need of help at this moment in time.

Taste me tropical | Wanderlust

When in the Caribbean it's only right you spend your days sipping rum and coke, singing Bob Marley and taking every opportunity to frolic. From a Summer based purely on all things Despacito it's only right you look head to toe flawless doing it. 
One of my favourite Dominican ensembles was this two piece co-ordinate set from Zara, paired with Topshop sliders. From the frills to the tie everything about this outfit is flirtatious, fun and fabulous. This gorgeous turquoise with statement orange florals look amazing on anyone making it all the more appealing. Being in the Dominican is carefree and effortless, so your outfit should be too. Switch your stilettos for flats, your sleek pony for beach waves and your nude lip for the hottest coral. 
If you are going to live the part, dress the part.
Taste me tropical darling.

Caribbean dream | Wanderlust

SHOP my look below
Whilst there is no denying that Autumn is my favourite season I find myself, like everyone else, lusting after Summer each year. The thrill of the city in the Winter months is motivating however as the heat approaches island hopping falls top of my agenda. 
This Summer I spent my time in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. This Caribbean island fell nothing short of an escape. It's picture perfect landscape, vibrant culture and laid back attitude left me longing to stay for eternity- any wanderlusts dream.
I myself had never travelled to the Caribbean I had only been subjected to it through films and and Instagram. Through hearsay I never doubted that this tropical paradise would be everything I desire.
I took the nine hour Dreamliner trip across the Atlantic and down onto the island. Whilst many visit Punta Cana, we stayed North of the island which very much like my trip to Mexico gave a new outlook on everything that I had heard, we really were immersed within this culture. 
Immediately the golden sand, shades of blue, mountainous view and the kindest people you could have ever met made this vacation one of the best that I had ever been on. The Dominican Republic thrives off tourism and that becomes clear to see as you travel around the island, seeing just exactly how many live and realising just how lucky you really are.
One of my favourite things about travelling to any sunshine destination is that I love being surrounded by nature, particularly forest which was clear to see in my trip to the Sorgun forest a few years back. It's places into perspective that everything around you is living, and to harm it would be a tragedy. Vacations are about leaving your troubles behind and escaping. 
My first day in the Caribbean made this a reality.
