HIGH FIVE FRIDAY

1. Combination Moccasin 
Remember my Zara shoe craving I had last week? Yep still not over it! In all honestly how on earth are you suppose to curb your footwear appetite when they keep creating perfect specimens such as the above? 
2. Get Glittered
I have the cutest little pumpkin sitting on my dining room table. It's been there for a good three weeks and what has became blatantly apparent is that I really don't have the heart to carve and pull out it's insides. Yes you could say I've gotten ever so slightly attached. The big mistake I made was picking the smallest from the store, they always lure me in. If like me you consider yourself to be in the same "no carve" category I suggest you check out Stylecasters DIY decorating tips for pumpkins. I'm obsessed with Yesterday's Sweeheart's creations here

3. Pretzel Pumpkins 
Halloween treats don't need to be time consuming, if you're smart you'll make a batch of these pretzel pumpkins which require only ten minutes of your time, three ingredients and enough hungry party goers to consume them. Simple, right? Check out the ever so easy "how to" via Elizabeth Labau here
23 Reasons Why Hocus Pocus Is The Best Halloween Movie Of All Time...
4. Tradition 
I don't care how old you are, when the 31st of October is nearing it's compulsory that you have watched Hocus Pocus at least three times. Why I hear you ask? Because it's only like one of the best Halloween movies out there.
This is a great reminder.
5. Quote Of The Week 
I sometimes feel that individuals (myself included) focus too much on what their peers are doing instead of taking that attention and directing it towards how and what it is they're doing. Here's a suggestion, why not set yourself daily challenges. The challenges don't have to be large nor do they have to be small but what it will do is refocus your energy back in the right direction; towards you


Happy Halloween!

Not the usual style of editorial I'm drawn to but there was something so magically Gatsby about this shoot from the latest issue of How To Spend It magazine featuring model Isabelle Nicolay shot by Thomas Cooksey that it was pretty difficult to avoid. 

Hope you're all having a fabulous Tuesday?

HIGH FIVE FRIDAY


1. Walk On the Wild Side 
I tried so hard to erase them from my mind but through no fault of my own I just cannot for the love of god stop thinking about them. Zara has seriously got it in for me and my credit card with their constant stream of drool worthy footwear. Once you've started to plan outfits, you know you're stepping into dangerous territory.
banana and peanut butter bread
2. Match Made In Heaven
Since the realisation that apples were off the menu (fodmap diet downfall) I've been turning my attention to new flavours as opposed to drowning my sorrows over warm cinnamon apple pies I'll no longer be able to devour. Two flavours I've not been able to get enough of lately is banana and peanut. Which leads me onto my new favourite recipe via Australian magazine Donna Hay. The banana peanut butter bread is a sweet treat you'll want to become acquainted with. Check out the recipe in full here.

3. Lowlife
Keep hair, smooth and stress free with a low knotted bun this winter. No more windswept mains to contend with as you struggle during the morning commute. 
Glitter fade
4. Glitter is The New Black 
The weather has been so dismal the past week I've been looking at alternative ways to invite a little sparkle into my day. I know technically I should be adorning my nails in varnish that end in "oxblood" but at the moment I'm experimenting with glitter in the hopes it will shin any remote feeling of the winter blues that have a pesky way of creeping up on you. 
Satsuki shibuya
5. Quote of The Week 
Don't strive to be perfect as this is an unachievable goal, instead focus on what makes you the best person you can possibly be. In the end perfection doesn't matter but being a good, well rounded individual is priceless.

Happy Friday!

The November issues have one thing in common (or so it seems) they're all obsessed with yesteryear.
