On Friday I will finally be returning to Paris & I am so excited! Paris has everything from culture to fashion that packing for a long weekend can be tricky & with Paris Fashion Week currently happening I can imagine the city is buzzing. I love seeing street style posts for ideas so after some browsing this weekend here is a taste of what will be in my suitcase this weekend. AA x
Weekend Reading List, a new feature that is replacing what used to be the ‘Weekly Top 5.’ Ever Friday you can now get your dose of what happened in the week just gone, what’s just in ‘Hot Off The Press’ & some of my own weekly favourites.
This week has been crazy busy with the launch of Abigail Alice & having a nasty cold the whole week hasn’t been very nice. So this weekend I plan to get wrapped up in some of my favourite comfies get lost in my book which I will share with you next week in the new Book Club & plan what to pack for my trip to Paris next Friday!
Enjoy your weekend. AA x
Dinner & cocktails with my girlfriends is something I love to do, over the 10 years since we left University our nights out have some what changed. At the moment we love booking into one of our favourite restaurants, with great food, cocktails, girl talk & were all set for a long night.
Part of the girls night for me is getting ready, from the outfit to the beauty, I love to have my nails painted & a hair & make-up appointment if I really want to treat myself. On these occasions there really is only one place to go, Harvey Nichols: Beauty Bazaar in Liverpool.
Monday isn’t the most popular day but when your off work it isn’t too bad! The other week I had been away to Frankfurt for the weekend with my job so had the Monday off & I loved it, how I wish I could have every Monday off but hey a girl can dream. I spent my day getting ready for the re-launch of Abigail Alice & hanging out with one of my best friends. After enjoying a catch up over some coffee in the WOW bar in Beauty Bazaar we headed over to the other side of Liverpool City Centre to the Walker Art Gallery.
When ever I think of MAC I not only think of their products but their artistic flair & creativity that they produce with each new collection, they know no boundaries. Their latest collection MAC is beauty was the perfect collection for me, girly, sixties inspired with bug hair & pastel colours I couldn’t wait to try it out. So when I go invited to the MAC is beauty very own salon in Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar it was an offer I couldn’t refuse.
I’m a girly girl so do love a pamper session but who doesn’t but realistically when do we have time to really pamper ourselves? For me I love on a Sunday night, lighting a candle, prepping my skin putting on a face mask, oils in the bath & having some down time. This is great for me to do once a week but leading up to Summer with a Wedding to prep for (not my own of course but I was a bridesmaid) & beach holidays, I made more of a conscious effort to buff, scrub & moisturise regularly & properly.
I’m not going to lie I love Birthday’s, whether it’s my own or someone else’s. It’s everything from deciding on the gift, I’m a stationer geek so even down to the card, wrapping it up. The day itself I want to know the plans, is it a celebratory Brunch, will we do something different maybe a theme park, the Zoo or getting dressed up & heading out for cocktails & dinner, have I got carried away? Sorry, but you can get the idea now can’t you. So this year when it came to my own birthday I hadn’t really made any plans, your shocked I know. My girlfriends & I had been out the week before for a big night out & that had totally distracted me however I was the lucky girl when my boyfriend surprised me & took me away for the weekend to Bath.
