With Summer long gone and temperatures now reaching freezing, I'd normally be struggling with my skin due to the change in weather, amazingly I'm not, yet even when I am, it's not likely I'm going to do much about it. I've always admired those with a beautiful range of mid - to high end beauty products, maybe it's the branding, the pleasing aesthetic making you feel more regal and up to date in adulthood. I won't lie, it's a comforting thing to have some sort of routine for the morning and evening, if there's one part of my life that's put together, it can be that. Nuxe, oh Nuxe, there's something so luxurious but understated, each time I've used their products so kindly gifted to me, I dreaded the day I'd run out; no doubt then anticipating purchasing them and more myself afterwards.

It's a brand I've known from afar, forever wanted to try and am always drawn to in store, duty free or abroad, wherever I am. It's founded on instinct and nature, with a sensual approach connecting women to their inner beauty. When a brand goes into such depth and meaning like Nuxe has, it instantly connects you more to the products and process.

Each product is gentle, kind and nourishing on the skin, the fragrances are the perfect amount, never will you feel too heavily coated. It's no lie I shout it from the rooftops to people, encouraging them to take a look at all the products Nuxe has to offer, they've recently launched their Christmas shop for such affordable prices, I swear I might just go and buy a gift from me to me.

what i'm wearing

rust orange coat from primark, floral last season zara dress, nasty gal boots and my usual jack wills cross body bag

With the sun still striking through the crisp Autumn air, the kettle is forever boiling, myself hidden away underneath thick, soft blankets by the fire with my love, there's a winded down sense of calmness - normally there'd be an eager rush with less sunlight, then hours in the day, but no, I feel wonderful. The air feels slow but sharp, keeping me awake without the need for a worrying intake of caffeine, I'd normally find myself lacking as the seasons turn and the darkness caves in, but there's subtle excitement watching the streets and parks go from green to reds and knowing the festivities are ahead of us. My best friend and I are whisking ourselves away to Paris at the start of next month, I've never been before, let alone to France - no doubt you'll find us in a gallery, sipping coffee on every street, camera in hand, in awe of the romantic city. I've heard others talk of the city in tune of a delicate love letter, the saying "we'll always have Paris", seems to reckon with a lot of people,
and I sure hope it's true. See you soon Paris.

with love, Kat

what i'm wearing

top is calvin klein, leopard print wrap skirt from new look, nasty girl trainers, todd bag and michael kors necklace.

I need to stop letting people assume I'm around at the drop of a text and be unapologetic for it. I've got a knack for saying no, but also saying yes. I know the more I let unnecessary guilt and presumptions lead the way of my decisions, that aren't always what at heart I'd like to them to be, the more others will walk all over me simply because most of the time I agree to things on, for the most part, their terms. Their time, their requirements and needs. It's most likely because I'm freelance, the underlying lack of respect of certain people have assuming because it's not a 9-5, that I'm then around whenever they are. Except I've allowed it. I always state, you pick the times, you chose, you let me know when, and so on, giving them full control, because "I can move my schedule around no problem", however I need a schedule, I should stick to it and have the respect for myself and career to do so. There's easy going, then there's too easy; it's not always that you then notice when you've given yourself too kindly to another that it's now expected and not hoped for, abused subtly at another's advantage. I suppose I just want to be around, I want and do make time, I don't want to miss out, but there's got to be a balance and there must be respect. Right?

with love, Kat
