autumn and winter try on haul

Hey guys, 

I have recently been loving the change in weather, now that we are in Autumn, those cold mornings so many people hate them, but me, I love them. I'm completely obsessed with autumn winter fashion, and if I am honest with you, I personally think that what the high-streets have to offer this season is perfect, the trends are my kind of thing. I mean a girl can never have too many knitted jumpers, right!? 
I've been a bit spendy recently, and can you blame me, with asos offering free next day delivery. I managed to pick up some lovely inexpensive pieces from asos, topshop, zara and H&M. 

I have uploaded a new youtube video so you can see what I have bought and I have even inserted a try on for you all as well. 

I hope you enjoy.

get ready with me

I decided to do a chatty get ready with me, for a evening out with the girls. I've kept my makeup simple, but have used a colour chameleon eye pencil by Charlotte Tilbury just to take the look from day to night. As its getting a little chilly now, I thought it was the perfect excuse to get away with wearing a nice big knit with a skirt, keeping it less casual for an evening out. 

Let me know if you like this look

Homeware haul

I'm obsessed with homeware. Anyone else with me on that one? I'm always on the look out for new pieces to make my flat feel a little more cosy and I notice that it makes such a massive difference, I feel so more relaxed and at home. I thought I would make another youtube video with the bits and pieces I have recently picked up. All items I purchased are listed on my youtube. Let me know if you like the video or the items I have shown.

Malta video

I recently took a much needed trip away to Malta, with my boyfriend and two friends. Its such a beautiful place and it was amazing to get some sunshine and swim in the sea. I decided to compile the video clips I have together and make my first vlog style video. I hope you enjoy watching the video, let me know what you think.

Have any of you visited Malta before?

obsessed with marble

* these items were kindly gifted but all opinions are my own

I feel like I am not the only one who is completely obsessed with marble, honestly I see it everywhere. Doesn't it just look so chic and classy though! I've seen people with marble laptops for years and i've always wished mine looked the same, instead of the plain boring silver. 

Well now here it is, my jazzed up laptop with a beautiful marble print.

Both the phone case and the marble laptop print are from a company called caseapp they have hundreds of designs online, not to mention you can customise your own laptop skin or case just by uploading your own personalised photograph onto case app. I honestly could not be happier with both of these products, the phone case is sturdy and I feel as though it will protect my phone well. All of the products are really affordable pricing (as I know some phone cases can be mega expensive). Not to mention I have fed my obsession of marble even further.

Case app have kindly given me a 20% discount code for all my followers, so you can get a new case or skin a little cheaper. Just type in the code JESSICALAAR20 at the checkout to get your discount. 

let me know if you buy anything from caseapp or if you have used them before, I will definitely purchase from them in the future as im obsessed with my new marble designs.

Exploring Amsterdam

 Lets go back to May... 

I finally submitted my 10,000 word dissertation and under went exams for my final year of university, along with Ben's birthday, what better excuse than to jet off to Amsterdam. We were greeted with the best weather, I think we were tremendously lucky, everyone else i'd spoken to suggested coats, but we didn't need them once, in fact I wish I had brought shorts with me.
We decided to stay in an Airbnb, something neither of us had done before, but I was throughly impressed, and it felt so much nicer living in the culture of someone else's home in a different country. Everything about the apartment was amazing, and gave me apartment envy. 

I'd recommend walking, Ben and I walked miles around the city, you will definitely sleep at night, but it really is the perfect way to see all those side streets and things you would miss via public transport. One of my favourite things to do is just wander and explore and Amsterdam is such a great city to do this in.

As you can see, we took a trip to the sex museum, which is located close to Amsterdam Centraal, it's definitely worth the 4 euro, its a funny trip and lets just say they have some interesting characters which jump out at you. As the red light district is so famous on Amsterdam we thought we should check out the museum first, before heading along to see the real thing, I found the museum very interesting and it was interesting to see how things have changed and evolved over the years.

Valentines makeup look

As Valentines day is approaching, I thought I would do a look, its pretty natural with a subtle red lip and a bit of a warm pink toned eye. I thought this would be perfect for Valentines day, what ever the occasion may be.
If you are celebrating Valentines, then I hope you all have a lovely day and I hope you enjoyed this really easy and quick look I created.
