Top Non-Touristy Things To Do In The Meatpacking District - New York

You may have read my Letter To New York post last week which gave a little indication as to why I love the city so much, especially since I went off the beaten track and kept away from the obvious tourist spots. Over a number of posts I'll be giving my opinion of the top things to do that aren't so well known in the big apple. Things that you don't hear about as much, but all things that are so amazing and (if I dare say it) better than the top attractions in the city.

The first instalment of my top non-touristy things to do in New York is exploring the Meatpacking District. The most common thing to do here (which probably is starting to verge into tourist spot status but I still highly recommend doing) is walking along the High Line. Although very popular now, it really is a must when you're in the area. The walk itself is across an old elevated abandoned train track which has a beautiful changing view of Lower Westside New York with lots to see along the way. 

Making your way along the 1.5 mile track you get to see so many different things, from beautiful greenery, interesting art, busy streets and an amazing skyline across the Hudson River. You also have constant little reminders that where you're walking was once a live train track, as little bits of old rail lines pop up along the way. I highly recommend having a bite to eat beforehand at Bubby's which is just by the start of the High Line. Bubby's does amazing breakfasts and has the most beautiful bakery at the back where you can pick up great coffee and refreshing juices to set you up for the long walk.

Once you've filled yourself up and started making your way along the High Line I highly recommend stopping off at Chelsea Market to grab some lunch from any of the independent cafes there. I had an amazing Oreo cookie ice cream sandwich which was totally worth the hundreds of miles flight from the UK alone. Whilst you're there make sure you take a look at all the lovely little unique shops, and if you've got time, you must pop into the flee market to browse all the vintage pieces; from clothing through to decorations and furniture. Chelsea Market starts about half way along the High Line at breaks up the walk and the most perfect time.

I highly recommend walking the whole way down the High Line, even though the scenery starts to get a bit cold towards the end, just bare with it. As you get right to the end you reach a holding ground for hundreds of subway trains which are all lined up perfectly and, if the sun is shinning, glimmer beautifully in the light. Then you turn to see the most beautiful skyline.

Once you've made it to the end of the High Line you could just jump on the subway and head off somewhere else but I highly recommend exploring the rest of the Meatpacking District. The restaurants and shops around this beautiful area of New York have the most gorgeous architecture that can only be described as a much prettier Spitlefields Market. Shopping around the Meatpacking District is a great experience. It has a mix of boutique and branded shops but all have a unique quirkiness to them. Shopping in this area takes you away from all the hideously lifeless and busy stores in Central Manhattan and allow you to actually enjoy strolling in and out of the shops at a very relaxed and calm place.

Finally, if your wanting to spend the whole day exploring the Meatpacking District then you must check out its art scene. There are some great galleries to explore with The Milk Gallery and The Whitney Museum of American Art being the top two to visit. 

So that's it, my first instalment of my top non touristy things to do in New York. What are you favourite things to do in the Meatpacking District? Or what non-touristy things would you recommend doing in NYC?

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Review and Swatches

Long lasting liquid lipsticks is a market that all brands are wanting to break into at the moment, and not everyone is doing it right. The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams however tick most of the boxes when it comes to being top of the drugstore ranks. They certainly match affordability with quality and instead of doing my usual long winded intro into why I picked these up I thought I'd just go straight into the review. Feel free to skip to the bottom for a real quick run down of my thoughts.

The shade range NYX offers is incredible. With 31 shades to pick up at Boots (for UK buyers) it's safe to say you'll be at the NYX stand for a very long time swatching and deciding which ones to take home. But, at £5.50 a pop I'm pretty sure you'll easily be persuaded to take a small handful home with you.

The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are a perfect balance between lip stick and lip gloss and settle into the lips without any shine or shimmer. Although described as being highly pigmented, I can only agree to this after I've applied a number of layers. Don't get me wrong, once you've done two to three applications you do get a totally amazing pay off, but higher end brands do only need one coat. Although a little bit annoying, there is a plus side to this. The Soft Matte Lip Creams give us more control over how opaque or bold we apply the colour. You can go from subtle hint to full blown impact depending on your mood; and you don't get that freedom with higher, more extreme pigmented brands. 

These matte lip creams are great at settling into the lip, they do take a few seconds to dry which can mean a longer application process but it's worth it for the colour payoff. They aren't as long lasting as the higher end brands (but I never really expect that from a drugstore lipsticks anyway) and they can wear off after a few hours. Saying that, the do hold up well against eating and drinking, it's just natural wear off that is the issue here.

One other little issue I have with these lip creams is that they tend to clump up on the lip after a while. The don't stay completely in place all day and I sometime find myself having to wipe off build up around the corners or middle of my lips after a few hours. However, on the other hand, that does mean that the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream's don't dry out your lips in anyway; which is totally amazing for how matte the overall effect is. There is absolutely no transfer or smudging within the first few hours or wearing either. 

I picked up 4 different shades with Abu Dhabi being my favourite as it is a lovely subtle brown shade. Cairo has a creamier look to it, being very light brown, Tokyo is a lovely bright bold pink shade and Buenos Aires is a nice faint coral colour.

If you're just wanting a quick summary of these liquid lipsticks then this little section is for you:
1. They're not drying at all
2. NYX have a great shade range
3. Good pigmentation but could be better - does allow you to create own levels of opacity
4. Doesn't transfer
5. Last's about half a day without any top ups
6. Can occasionally clump or gather on the lips

If you were to ask me if I preferred these to higher end brands, like Kat Von D for instance, I wouldn't be able to agree...but, that doesn't mean I don't love the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. They're so well priced and have such a great shade range that I can forgive them for any of the points that they drop on a little. These are 100% the best matte liquid lipsticks in the drugstore market and I will certainly be buying more.

Have you tried the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams? What are you thoughts? Which shades should I be picking up next? Let me know in the comments below.

The Most Inspirational Magazine for Bloggers

For all you magazine lovers out there you'll know there is a lot of competition and loads of different publications trying to catch your eye; it can all get a little bit confusing right? Although I still love the some of big named magazines, as I'm getting more and more into the blogging scene I feel the old glossies are moving further away from what I personally relate to. 

There's also been a lot of controversy recently with popular publications, let's say, not really backing bloggers (to put it very politely) and this case sadly hasn't been a stand alone one. That's why I started to branch out into more specialised or independent magazines. I could list off loads of names here (and maybe that's an idea for another post) but the one I want to rave about today is Blogosphere magazine.

I'm pretty darn sure most of you reading this have not only heard of Blogosphere magazine but probably have every single edition sitting on your coffee table. But, despite that, I still wanted to tell you the reasons as to why I absolutely love this magazine and why it's done wonders for my blog.

1. It gives me so much inspiration to write and create more posts. Whenever I'm lacking motivation, inspiration or dedication to my blog, picking up Blogosphere always inspires me to create content again. It's also great for giving me ideas for posts I wouldn't have thought of before. As a (mostly) beauty blogger I can sometimes stick to the same ideas and I also tend to only read similar themed blogs to mine. Blogosphere magazine provides me with different genres and different categories I wouldn't normally find or think to look at and the ideas and inspiration I get from these is totally amazing. I would never have thought to write lifestyle posts or even 'letter' posts if it wasn't for picking Blogosphere up.

2. The advice Blogosphere gives to bloggers is really great. The Blogosphere team are always dedicating articles to help you out with social media or provide you with tips for managing your blog whilst working full time (something I really struggle with). Blogosphere magazine has helped me pick up some great advice along the way and that's something I really appreciate.

3. It's helped create an amazing community. Not only do you have a sense of blogging pride, and feelings of "these people are blogging badasses" as you read the magazine, but they also provide weekly chats (#BlogosphereChat - 8pm on Sunday's). These chats really help build an amazing little space on the internet where people can chat and share their thoughts, feelings and advice whilst getting help and encouragement from other bloggers out there. I know there are many other chats to get involved in during the week but I think the Blogosphere chat is one that allows bloggers of all different talents and genres to get together; getting us all interacting as just bloggers; not beauty, fashion, lifestyle or parent bloggers.

And these are just three of the reasons why I totally love Blogosphere magazine and why I won't be missing an issues. Do you read this amazing magazine? Which other magazines inspire you? Let me know below, I'm always looking for new things to read.

Perfect Autumn Perfumes

There are a number of reasons as to why I love Autumn, I even listed some of them in a little post here, but one of the things I look forward to the most is Autumn scents. Pumpkin and Vanilla scented candles are something that gets me very excited about the months where the days get shorter and the air gets colder but swapping up the perfumes I use is also another scent experience I look forward to.

Gone are the months of fruity, florally and sharp scents and in come the musky, woody and cedar like aromas that I completely love. I totally love androgynous scents that are the perfect mix of feminine beautifulness with masculine warmness and these two hit those requirements perfectly. So, here are my perfect Autumn perfumes.  

Diptyque Philosykos and Elizabeth and James Nivarna Black

Diptyque Philosykos is a lovely deep scent that has the perfect balance of fig and cedar undertones. Although it has an underlining muskiness to the scent it also gives a great freshness that brightens up this perfume; which is totally welcomed. Philosykos also gives off the perfect amount of woodiness and hints of bark that warms the undertones of this scent. With ingredients including fresh leaf and green fruit, this fragrance really is the perfect combination on deep and crips that eases you into those full blown winter scents.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black is another wood smelling scent which incorporates sandalwood with vanilla to create a sweet but warm combination of undertones. This scent does have more floral incense with hints of violet that brightens up the deeper tones of this perfume. This is definitely the more androgynous of the two and is perfect for an Autumn evening.

So here are my top two perfumes for the Autumn months. I love them both so much and couldn't possibly choose my favourite between them. Have you tried either of these? What are you favourite perfumes now the year is coming towards the end? Let me know below.

Makeup Revolution Precision Pro Oval Brush Review

Make up brushes aren't things I buy too often. I seem to fall in love with a hand full and stick to them until they either completely fall apart or something really sparks my interest. The latter was definitely the case with the Makeup Revolution Precision Oval Pro Brush.

Since oval brushes swept the blogging world about a year ago I have been totally intrigued. I kept reading reviews of different brands left right and centre and couldn't decide if they would work for me or not. The reviews were all very mixed with some people swearing by them and other swearing off them for life, so I came to the conclusion I just had to try one for myself. 

Makeup Revolution Precision Pro Oval Brush

The Artis brushes were far too expensive for me; especially if I wasn't sure if they would work for me or not, but the cheap ebay alternatives that were floating around just didn't appeal to me. I just couldn't see how a make up brush costing roughly £2 would leave my make up looking good on my skin. So I was looking for a happy medium.

That's when I spotted how Make Up Revolution were branching into the oval brush craze and, to my delight, for a reasonable price. They aren't expensive but still not stupidly cheap that they had me automatically assuming they'd be crap. So off to Superdrug I went to pick one up.

Makeup Revolution do have a number of brush sets so you can buy a handful of different sized oval brushes and although this is a cheaper way of doing it, I didn't want to buy more than one brush until I knew if I liked them or not. The Precision Pro Brush is only £10 which is a great price for a brush, especially one that looks this pretty.

This brush is actually really great and I fell in love after just one use. The brush gives amazing coverage and you don't have to take ages blending to get an even finish. The bristles are really tightly packed so don't soak up a lot of the product. It took me a little while to get used to having to do circular motions instead of the buffing motion in order for this brush to reach it's full potential but once I got comfortable, I really loved the pay off it gives.

The Makeup Revolution Precision Pro Oval Brush is also super soft. I know most brushes are beyond soft nowadays but I find the cheaper brands don't quite get this softness right. This brush however is a dream to touch and feels amazing on the skin. The only negative thing about this brush is that it's a little difficult to clean, but for the shamefully long lengths of time I go between washes, this shouldn't be too much of an issue for me. 

So, not only is this brush gorgeous to look at and will most definitely be featuring in a lot of my Instagram pictures (no doubt you'll get bored of seeing it) but it is also an amazing brush to actually use. It provides great coverage and gives a beautiful finish with real ease. 

Have you tried any oval brushes? How about this range from Make up Revolution? Let me know your thought's below.

Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Lipstick in Coy Review and Swatches

I did something out of the ordinary the other week. Something I never really do and something that I shocked even myself by doing; I bought a non matte lipstick (*huge gasp*). 

If you're a long time reader of my little space of the internet you'll know that matte is a description I could use for 95% of the products I own and shimmery, glittery or glossy are almost swear words in my world. But, there I was, finding myself saying "yeah, go on then" to a creamy lipstick. I was off to a wedding and my usual dark, brown and, well, a little lifeless lipstick don't quite work for such a joyful formal occasion so I agreed to go for something different. Obviously (by the title of this post) Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Lipstick in Coy was my weapon of choice for such an occasion. 

Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Lipstick in Coy

This lipstick is a beautiful darker pink shade with a tiny hint of a brown undertone. It's very much a shade that is a (and I really hate using this phrase but sadly it sums it up entirely) 'your lips but better' one. The consistency is very buttery and creamy. Once on the lip the Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip lipstick gives a subtle hint of shine but it isn't in your face glossy. I mean I didn't want to stray too far away from my comfortable matte lip look now did I? 

This lipstick last amazing on the lip for something that isn't matte. Eating and drinking don't seem to effect it too much and you only have to reapply once or twice in a night. No, it's not going to last half as long as a matte shade or a liquid lipstick but for a sheer formula, which are nuturiously bad for longevity, the Laura Meecier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip lipstick does a very decent job.

The pigmentation is also really great for a creme product. You only have to swipe two or three layers on the lip to get a strong pay off. Again, it doesn't compare to the one layer you need from a liquid lipstick but it's really great non the less. 

All in all I am very impressed and was totally won over by the Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip lipstick. I have to admit, I don't think it's completely convinced me to leave my matte obsession behind but I certainly wasn't disappointed with this lipstick. I definitely don't regret buying it and have worn is several times since the wedding, which I didn't really expect to do. Big thumbs up from me.

Have you tried the Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip range? Which Laura Mercier lip products are you favourite?

Bobbi Brown Instant Detox Masque Review

Who doesn't love a good face masque. I mean, a masque is an integral part of having a perfect pamper night right? Everything else; tanning, doing your nails or deep cleansing your hair changes from session to session. But a face masque; well that's always on the pampering agenda. 

Now I'm not one to indulge in the luxuries of face masques too often so when I do, I like to have one that does a really good job. That's why I tend to go for higher end brands over drug store alternatives (although there are some high street masques I love out there). This is also why, when I saw the Bobbi Brown Instant Detox masque when in The Cosmetics Company Store the other month, I just had to pick it up. 

Bobbi Brown Instant Detox Masque Review

The instant detox part of this masque was definitely a selling point for me. As I said, I don't get to treat myself to a face masque very often so I want its effects to be instant, and the Bobbi Brown Instant Detox masque certainly gives impressively fast results. My skin is always super smooth as soon as I wash this off. 

This masque is charcoal like and I find it's great for giving your skin a new lease of life. My skin always looks healthier and clearer after using the Bobbi Brown Instant Detox Masque. I find with a lot of masques, although eventually leaving my skin looking amazing after a few days, they can make me break out a little the day after using; but not with Bobbi Brown.

Bobbi Brown Instant Detox Masque Swatch and Review

The masque dries really quickly but doesn't crack or tighten on the skin at all. It's really comfortable to have on; to the extent where I sometimes forget I'm wearing it. It sinks into your pours quickly and deeply, which always means great results to me. It gives a deep clean and helps reduce oil and, as an oily skinned gal, anything that does that gets a big tick from me. Usually some masques can strip the skin but the Bobbi Brown Instant Detox Masque leaves it fully moisturised whilst being deeply cleansed; perfect match! 

Have you tried any of the Bobbi Brown masques? Which is your go to product for a pamper night?

Coconut Lane Marble Loves

As Coconut Lane had its first birthday this week I thought this would be a great opportunity to express my love for them and the girls (and guys?) in the team. I also though it would be great to show the goodies I've picked up from them so far and give these (noticeably all marble) things a little bit of love in blog form. 

If you haven't heard of Coconut Lane (where have you been) they are a lovely, kick ass company who stock and sell amazing accessories from stunning jewellery to Pinterest worthy cushions. They sell things that can being described as dainty and pretty alongside things that are full of character and totally sassy; and here's what I picked up. 

As you can see, my favourite categories from Coconut Lane's offerings were the phone cases, notebooks and jewellery. You can also see that I was going through a very marbled themed phase at the time of my order!

Marble Products from Coconut Lane

Seriously though, the mobile phone cases Coconut Lane sell are all amazing and I'd buy them all if that wasn't totally ridiculous and completely excessive of me. The styles include comical cartoons, bad ass slogans and darn right beautiful patterns. I wanted the palm leaf case as it's gorgeous but sadly they were sold out of the iPhone 6 model when I ordered. My next choice was this beautiful marble effect one; I mean, I am a blogger after all so what else would you expect! 

You also have to check out their notebooks if you place yourself on any end of the stationary fan scale. I love that the notepads aren't too thick either as I never fill them up and I always feel guilty for wasting paper if I don't reach the end. 

Then we move onto the jewellery. Well, where do I start? I had to be really strict here as I'd told myself I was only allowed one piece when I placed my order, but my god was that a difficult rule to stick too. There are so many beautiful pieces to choose from, from the Turquoise Anklet to the Feather Earrings. However, I settled on this Marble Cube Bangle. I was after something classic and pretty that still showed the androgynous style I always go for when it comes to jewellery. This bracelet certainly ticked all those boxes. 

As I'm trying to be sensible will my money at the moment I stopped myself after adding 3 items in my basket. But, if I gave into my inner shopaholic I would totally order myself one of the amazing marble Mac Skins and the brand new Pom Pom Keyrings. I'll also be ordering some (probably all) the prints when I get my house so I can add them to my picture wall I'm planning to create. 

I'm also very honoured to be a Coconut Queen which means I get to offer you lovely lot at healthy 20% off your order if you enter the code northern20 at the checkout. If that's not tempting you to fill that virtual basket with goodies; I don't know what will. 

I'll end the post with a huge Happy Birthday to Coconut Lane and a huge thank you to the team for being such a great bunch and creating a lovely community to be a part off.

Four Reasons Why You Need Essie in your Life

I have to note a little disclaimer here; I'm not the biggest nail polish person (great way to start a nail polish post Hannah!). But wait, hear me out, I don't mean I don't like nail varnish, hell I love having my nails all pretty and I have a good 60 polishes in my collection. I just find it really difficult to actually sit down and spend the time putting layer after layer on to make my nails look perfect. I get bored and it always ends in one or two very smudged nails because I've given up on waiting for them to dry. However, I have come to the conclusion that there is one way to make this process a little easier; and that's Essie. 

I used to have the mentality that the cheaper the nail varnish the better. Let's face it, I wasn't wearing nail varnish enough to justify spending more than £2-£5 on a polish. But then I did something very out of character; I went to get my nails professionally done. Of course they weren't going to use some cheap ass polish on me so out the Essie bottles came. I won't go in to detail about the manicure (although if you live in Sheffield you need to go to The Salon on Eccelsall road; it's brilliant and very Instagramable) but here are the main reasons why I swore, from that day on, only to buy Essie polishes.

Neutral Essie Nail Polishes Review

1. The shade range is amazing. I'm not just talking about Essie having a large variety of colours, although that is something they kick ass at. I'm talking each shade being beautiful and extremely wearable. Yes Essie have a great variety of bold, out-there colours that we all know and love; but only actually wear when we're feeling adventurous. But Essie are totally amazing at creating neutral shades that are all 'must haves' for your collection. Each cream, grey, brown and pink is just as beautiful as the next but still different enough to justify spending a small fortune on shades that have the same undertones. 

2. The pigment is amazing. Yes if you're going for a lighter shade then you'll have to add a number of layers to pack a punch (nothing new there) but when you compare Essie to cheaper brands, you're looking at three coats max rather than the four or five for the likes of Barry M. If you've got a darker shade you can 100% get away with one layer to give great pigmentation and one coat means quicker application and a speedier drying process...can I get an amen?! 

3. My god do Essie polishes last a long time. For anyone that hates doing their nails there is nothing more annoying then giving up 45 mins of your time (from first stroke to totally dry) just for the varnish to chip the next day; meaning redoing them a few days later.  Not a problem with Essie. Even without a top coat your looking at a full week no chips. If you do put that extra layer on then after 8 or 9 days your still laughing. Less chips means less reapplying and for someone as nail lazy as me, this means going much longer between fist pump. 

4. Finally the brush!! The Essie brush makes it soooo much easier to apply these polishes. Their sturdy bristles ensures better direct application, no stroke marks and way less spillage onto my fingers, which all in turn help with a speedier application process. 

So that's it, that's why there is no turning back now I've discovered the wonderful ways of Essie! You really can't go wrong with these polishes. Essie, I salute you and I bloody well love you. Thanks for being great.

Kat Von D 'Lock-It' Liquid Foundation Review and Swatches - Light 45

If you follow me on social media then you'll know the constant love and raving I've been giving Kat Von D Beauty at the moment. Hell I even did a post the other week about Kat Von D beauty hitting the UK and what I thought you absolutely must add to your make up collection, so you could say I'm a big fan of the brand!

I ordered a number of things on the day Kat Von D Beauty was released and I had tried all of them before, apart from one little product. The Kat Von D 'Lock-It' Liquid Foundation.

Kat Von D Lock It Foundation Light 45 Review

I have to say I was a little sceptical about ordering a foundation online that I 1) hadn't tried before and 2) couldn't test which shade matched my skin tone. However, I pulled together all my blogging tips and knowledge and did all I could to ensure I picked up the best shade possible. If you want to know how I did this then check out my Top Tips for Ordering Foundation Online post.

After a bit of research, and feeling confident I'd picked the shade that was (hopefully) the best for me, I hit add to basket. Two days later my new foundation was sitting on my dressing table, ready to be tested, and thankfully the shade was pretty darn perfect.

The Kat Von D 'Lock-It' Liquid Foundation, like with all of Kat Von D Beauty products is designed to be long lasting, high pigmented and provide full coverage and I can certainly confirm all three of these statements.

Not only is the coverage amazing but a little really does go a long way; I only need 2 pea sized pumps to cover my whole face. It gives a velvet matte finish, which is exactly what I'm looking for. I've heard people who don't usually go for a matte look say that using setting sprays before hand, skipping primer or adding highlighter can really make this foundation work for all desired effects. 

When it says it lasts 24 hours it really means it. I decided to live tweet my first day trying the Kat Von D Lock-It Liquid Foundation and this is how it went: 

Used my Kat Von D foundation for the first time today and so far so good
4hr update on my 1st day of Kat Von D foundation. Still great coverage and very limited amount of shine 
6hr update for my 1st day of Kat Von D foundation: no oxidisation and still great coverage. Only needed one shine dabbing so far 
Nearly 10 hrs wearing the Kat Von D foundation and I've only blotted once and still have full coverage. I'm falling in love guys 
After 13 hrs my Kat Von D foundation it's still pretty darn good on the skin. No extra blotting needed & the coverage is going strong 

As you can see by my tweets it was love at first use and I can confirm, 20 days later, I'm still head over heels; this ain't going to be no short love affair I tell you. Just a small amount evens out skin tones, hides pours and pretty much eliminates shine.

kat Von D Lock It Foundation Light 45 Review and Swatch

I didn't think there would be a day where I would find a foundation that could make me even pick flaws in my Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation, let alone replace it, but the Kat Von D 'Lock-It' Liquid Foundation has done just that. Although still an amazing product I had noticed how the Vichy foundation transferred when I touched my skin but I thought that was something that just came with any full coverage or long lasting foundation. Turns out I was wrong! Once on, the Lock-It Liquid Foundation doesn't come off until you get the cleanser on it. What more could you ask for from a foundation?

To sum it up this is the perfect foundation if you want a soft matte finish (although you can add dewyness to it if wanted), full, and I mean full, coverage and one that lasts from the moment you wake up to the moment you fall asleep. It does this all whilst reducing pretty much any shine (even for the oiliest of skin types) and never transferring. If you're not sold after that then I don't know what will make you happy!
