Does it even look like I live in New York City? These shots were taken next to Strawberry Fields and The Boating Lake in Central Park. Its pretty much the dream location to take photos in the Fall. The autumnal colours, calm weather and still waters make for a beautiful backdrop! This is my favourite look I've shot in New York by far!
As for the outfit, I couldn't be much happier with my H&M black gilet. I've worn it pretty much everyday since purchasing last month and find myself throwing it over everything from t-shirts and dress, to a leather jacket. As I mentioned in my last outfit post, I'm still not ready to give up wearing bare legs (and don't currently own any tights), so this midi skirt is a great piece to wear as the season transitions. I picked the skirt up from Forever 21 earlier in the year and had it for months before actually wearing it. I really like the '90s style touch with the buttons down the front, plus I love the cute print!
I had been after a pair of blue/green reflective Raybans for a while after seeing them all over Instagram this summer. I chose this pair of Rayban Clubmaster shades from Smart Buy Glasses, after searching through their amazing range of sunglasses for the perfect pair. I've never had a pair of Raybans before and I'm loving the amazing quality, shape and fit.

Moving to New York City

Change is something I've become quite accustomed to over the past few years. I've always been one that loves to visit new places but since travelling across the USA last year, (which I posted about here) I guess I've kinda caught the travelling bug. I'm really keen to see more of the world and find that I can't stay in one place for too long. Back in 2012, I made the move from living by the seaside in North Yorkshire, to the big, daunting city of London. But making the step from London to New York, is another story in itself...

Incase you hadn't noticed, layering dresses over t-shirts is my latest obsession. Now that Fall is in full swing here in New York, it has been getting a little cooler. Although I'm not quite ready to give up wearing bare legs just yet... forever the optimistic dresser! Throwing on my favourite summer dresses over basic tees is a great way to recycle your summer wardrobe, plus I love the '90s vibe that outfits layering outfits can give off! I picked up this beautiful printed sunflower dress from Topshop, which is now on sale!
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you may have seen that I was on the UK Apprentice last week. I was asked earlier in the year to be part of a fashion focus group and had a great time filming with the team. I was only on for about 10 seconds, but still its so exciting!

Favourite Things To Do in New York City

Here's a few of my favourite things to do when visiting New York City!

Beauty Favourites #2

I wanted to share some more products I've really been loving this month. I really need to venture into the American beauty market while I'm here too!

MAC Lady Danger
Lady Danger has become somewhat my signature lip colour. I originally received this shade in a goodie bag from the British Fashion Awards no less, but lost it only weeks later and have since repurchased. There is something really unique about this vibrant orangey red colour and I seriously adore the matte finish! I find my skin tone really doesn't suit pinks but will be indulging into MAC's offer of reds to see which other gems I can discover...

Collection Fast Stroke Liquid Eye Liner
I swear by this eye liner and have barely strayed away since the age of about 15. A bargain at under £3, this eye liner is my go-to product for creating my signature cat-eye flicks and is super easy to use. I find, in comparison to a couple of other eyeliners I have tried over the years, the Fast Stroke Eyeliner stays very black and refrains from smudging or sweating off when wearing all day. I'm actually praying my stash of Collection eye liner doesn't run out while I'm Stateside!

John Frieda Go Blonder Shampoo & Conditioner
I'm a big JF fan and the latest blonde shampoo addition certainly does not disappoint. As a natural brunette, I bleach my hair around 3 times a year to keep up my ombre effect. Although less so in the summer months, my blonde hair tends to fade after a few weeks of bleaching... but the Go Blonder range is a blessing for dip-dye fanatics like myself and keeps my end looking brighter and lighter for longer. Its very reasonably priced too and definitely saves on bleaching so often.

Lancome Gel Eclat Clarifying Cleanser
I'm lucky to say my Mum is a huge high-end skincare product lover and have been taught religious skincare routines and make-up removal tips from a young age. I have a hatred of make-up wipes and swear by wash-off cleanser to remove my make-up. Having used a lot of different cleansers in the past, Lancome is rated as one of the best in my opinion and have used no other brand for at least the last year. I usually dampen my face with a splash of water before applying this product all over my face and then washing off. The gel texture removes even the heaviest foundation, leaving my skin fresh and make-up free before bed. I also have major love for the Lancome foaming cleanser which I might be repurchasing once this one is empty!

Seventeen 'Brows That!' Brow Kit
Another product my Mum introduced me too is this Seventeen Brow kit. Having never used a wax before on my eyebrows, I found this product to give a great bold effect which is really quick and easy to apply. Using the wax to start off with, I set a base for my brows and then use the brown powder to create definition and a bold arch. What I love about this product is than it comes with a highlighter which I love to use on my brow bone and as a shimmer over my lids.
