How are we at the end of another month? And more importantly, how is it over a month since I was in New York?! Time is flying past this year and we're starting to see Christmas decorations in the shops, the leaves are changing colour and the heating has officially been turned on...

When it comes to Britain, what could be more quintessentially British than the seaside? And likewise nothing screams British London Style more than the iconic department store we all love - Liberty. So I was very excited to recently receive the Keds Liberty Collection, in particular the Liberty Triple Dot style. After all, you guys know (and see on my social media!) that I spend a lot of my time wearing Keds. So a nice new, and colourful pair were perfect for a day at the seaside.

When it comes to going on holiday, things don't really start for me until I hit World Duty Free. It's only when I'm immersed in perfume, make-up, chocolates and of course, the odd bottle of Moet...it's only then do I truly get in the holiday spirit. I spend longer in World Duty Free than in any other place at the airport. I'll eat before I arrive, pick my reading material in advance and happily spend the entire time waiting for my flight mooching around the shop and treating myself to the beauty essentials I can't miss out on, because quite frankly, tax free make-up? It's a beauty lovers dream. Throw in the fact that World Duty Free sell spirits, chocolate, food, handbags, jewellery and pretty much everything else, and well, you're going to be a happy bunny whatever your treat of choice.

Well, I've been quite vocal about being head over heels with the new Zoella Lifestyle Collection. I love everything she's managed to capture in the range: simplicity combined with cute and sophisticated. While she might not be everyone's cup of tea, there is no denying that Zoella has absolutely knocked it out of the park with this collection, and I for one am very excited to get my hands on it.

When it comes to contouring, I like everyone else am completely obsessed. Who'd have thought that several years ago it would blow up to be one of the hottest make-up trends with both drug store brands, right through to the elite counter brands, all creating their own take on the daily need to highlight and sculpt the appearance of fierce cheekbones.

When it comes to beauty shopping, there's no denying that Sephora is the beauty lovers mecca. Its mass of beautiful, wonderful, brand new make-up just waiting to be purchased and enjoyed by beauty lovers of all styles...well, it's pretty much heaven isn't it? There's no better feeling as a beauty addict than when you lay eyes on a Sephora store. The potential purchases, the overwhelming urge to buy the entire shop...you know the kind of thoughts I'm talking about...

It's that time of year - the leaves are starting to change colour, the evenings are drawing in and the sunshine is just about preparing to say it's goodbyes for this year. It can only mean one thing...autumn is right round the corner. For me that means fluffy socks, slippers, knitted blankets and cosy nights in with a big mug of tea and lots of candles. I'm a fully fledged autumn lover. It also means that I start to mix up my daily make-up look, in favour of new autumnal looks in warm and golden shades.

When it comes to haircare, I've struggled to find premium hair brands that don't dry out my hair. Having fine and thin locks means that the strength of premium products often dries out my strands and makes my already flat hair get flatter. It's not a good look. However Bumble and bumble are one of the few premium brands that have the right balance in their products, which means that I'm always excited to try out their new lines because I'm not at such high risk of my hair looking lifeless after use.

Estee Lauder are doing great things right now. As someone who can fully appreciate great branding and PR, I've loved watching them introduce the likes of Kendall Jenner into their marketing. I've been using Estee Lauder products since I was a teenager. My Mum always taught me the importance of good make-up and skincare products, and she introduced me to Estee Lauder when I was about sixteen. She's used their products throughout her life and she rarely strays from her staple make-up bag essentials. Naturally, I followed suit after having only seen her rely on their products and always achieve fantastic and beautiful results.

When it comes to shopping and New York, the two come hand in hand. I've never heard anyone say that they'll be visiting the big city, viewing the big lights...and not doing any shopping. As they say - when in Rome...shop! (Kinda)

I can't even think of an introduction that will do justice to my trip last week... Last week I went on the trip of a lifetime? Last week I went on the best holiday of my life? No, I'll keep it simple: Last week was one of the best weeks of my life.
