If someone asked me where my favourite country was I'd have to say Italy. The culture, the food, the people, the sights, the weather, I just love everything about it and I can definitely see myself living there for a bit one day. Since Mary Kate and Ashley released When in Rome I was determined to move to Rome and work for a fashion company. I'm definitely still not ruling that out...My parents bought a house in Calabria in Southern Italy about 8 years ago now and I've been lucky enough to be able to travel to Calabria every year since they bought it and so it feels very much like a second home to me. My boyfriend had never been to Italy before and he was dying to go, so in late August we headed to Naples for our first Italian adventure together.

The days are getting darker, it's no longer acceptable to leave the house without at least three layers on and Christmas decorations are slowly but surely making their way into shops, which of course can only mean one thing...it's November. The month of fireworks, Christmas markets, Christmas shopping and cosy nights in by the fire. Weirdly enough, Bonfire Night is one of my favourite nights of the year and I'm not even sure why. There's just something so special about fireworks and I love piling on the layers and standing out in the freezing cold watching them. I've got so many exciting things lined up for next few months and I can't wait to blog about them all so keep your eyes peeled and be sure to follow me on Twitter and Instagram. Oh and I'm also having Secrets of a Rose completely revamped so a new layout is on it's way very soon! This month though, I've tried out so many new makeup bits and bobs but I've fallen head over heels for these 5 beauty treats. They're seriously amazing guys...

As soon as I saw a picture of Sleek's latest addition; the Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette, I just knew I needed it in my life. Eagerly awaiting it's arrival in store, as soon as I heard it had hit Boots, I headed straight there and managed to bag one of the last ones on the shelf. As a girl who is completely obsessed with highlighters (my highlighter collection has a makeup bag of it's own...), I fell in love with the gorgeous shimmery shades in the Solstice palette almost instantly and I couldn't wait to get it home to try it out for myself.

Not having a clue what to get my boyfriend for his birthday (why are guys so tricky?!), I eventually decided to surprise him with a weekend in London. I wanted to make it extra special so I didn't tell him anything about the weekend other than where we were heading. I loveee London. Although I have what I can only describe as a tube phobia, you can't beat the capital when it comes to shopping, great food and nightlife and so it's always a bit of a treat to head down south. Arriving at the train station in Leeds and heading to the first class carriage, we began a weekend of birthday celebrations....
