I am in fully fledged love with all things autumnal. The weather is cooling off just nicely making me long for stew, knitwear and long brisk walks, clichéd as they come.. yep thats me, but its just so so delicious this time of year.
This week around the web i have been loving:
01. Baked Gnocchi and Kale yum yum. Salvatore (that's my hubby) is a vegetarian, which means 98% of the time i eat vegetarian meals too. I'm trying to get some more recipes in my repertoire as i kind of have the same meals on constant rotation. This was so delicious.. looking forward to making some tweaks and cooking it again.
0.2 A new autumn bag.. I have my eyes on one of these. The colour way of choice is Port, how very autumnal. I really love Rebecca Minkoff bags, they're a great price for a designer bag, what d'you think?
0.3 This dress... I have a bit of a doo coming up (more on that soon), it'll be a lovely meal with friends and cocktails.. so this dress i think will be perfect with a black blazer and booties for that, but then thick tights and a chunky cardigan for winter.
0.4 Speaking of Booties, Kat of Does My Bum Look 40 got me on to these Wallis boots.. which i think would be perfect for my night out with the above dress.. hello fabulous tassels!
0.5 From the sublime heel to the comfy trainer.. I am just about to order myself a pair of these or maybe these?? I can't decide.. help a girl out, which trainers d'you think i should go for? Its bizarre as i wasn't that keen on the NB trend at all but as time has gone on they have majorly grown on me. Plus as a constant dog walker these tick so many boxes for me. Practical, trendy and super comfy.. Now which ones shall i get, help??
06. Angie at Reasons To Dress. I love to binge read her blog. She is just wonderful and i love seeing snippets of their Italian life, whether that be style, food or days out. Man do i hope to meet that girl some day (preferably in Italy.. oh how i love Italy!)
0.7 I have tried SO many of the at home gel nail polishes, but none have really lasted any longer than a normal polish for me. Its worth mentioning here i am VERY heavy handed and super clumsy. Its unfortunate as its always my freshly painted nails that get the brunt of it. But so far out of all i've trialled (Barry M, Sally Hansen, Sensationail) This Revlon product worked the best on me. Its actually superb. It lasted me 6 days which is unheard of for me. The formula isn't my favourite for application (quite runny) but longevity is a major plus point for me. Also great colour range too(my fave being the one above)
Aww i have to say i love writing these. I feel like i'm sitting down having a natter with you all.
So lets not make this a one sided conversation shall we.
What have YOU loved this week?
And which trainers shall i get?
I need a girlfriends advice (i asked hubby and he said they look the same.. now you know why i need your help!!) I'm definitely making a purchase tonight.. who knew trainers/sneakers could be so exciting, haha!
Wishing you all a lovely week!
